Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie har varit att belysa män och kvinnors egna upplevelser av medberoende. I studien har en kvalitativ ansats använts och det material som har studerats är åtta förinspelade samtal, podcastavsnitt, publicerade på internet. Det empiriska materialet har analyserats utifrån teori om familjeroller och ett genusperspektiv. Denna studies resultat visade att de som ingår i studien påverkats negativt av en uppväxtmiljö präglad av missbruk eller psykisk ohälsa och upplevde sig ha anammat en eller flera roller för att kunna hantera sin livssituation. Resultatet visade även att detta fått konsekvenser för deltagarna i det vuxna livet. Vidare visade resultatet att män och kvinnor i denna studie i lika hög grad utvecklar ett medberoende, dock fanns det skillnader i hur studiens män och kvinnor uttrycker sitt medberoende. Kvinnorna upplevde att de isolerade sig, blev tystlåtna och tillbakadragna och männen upplevde att de hade ett mer utagerande beteende. Studiens deltagare hade upplevelser av att i barn- och ungdomsåren behöva ta ett stort ansvar och att de egna behoven därför åsidosattes. Slutligen diskuterades de negativa konsekvenserna av medberoende och om detta hade en koppling till rådande könsnormer.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to illustrate male and females own experiences of codependency. In this study has an qualitative approach been used and the material consists of eight pre-recorded conversations, podcast episodes, published on the Internet. The empirical material has been analyzed from a theory of family roles and a gender perspective. It showed that the participants in this study has been negatively affected by growing up in an environment characterized of abuse or mental illness and felt that they had embraced one or more roles to manage their life situation. The result also showed that the participants had experienced negative consequences in adult life. The result of this study also showed that developing codependency was equally common among both male and female in this study, though were there differences between how male and females express their codependency. The females experienced a feeling of isolation, became quiet and reclusive and the males experienced that they had a more externalizing behavior. The experience of taking a big responsibility in childhood and adolescence was equally common among the participants of this study and led to that their own needs were ignored. The negative consequences of codependency and their connection to the gender norms of today were also discussed.
