Effects of Affect school : An evaluation of Affect school in adult psychiatry in Region Kronoberg (English)
Abstract [sv]

Föreliggande studie är en utvärdering av behandlingsmetoden Affektskola inom ramen för vuxenpsykiatrin. Syftet är att undersöka vilka effekter Affektskola har med avseende på psykisk ohälsa och affektmedvetenhet samt hur bestående dessa effekter är. Deltagarna är 13 patienter inom den psykiatriska öppenvården med varierande problematik, inkluderandes förstämningssyndrom, ADHD samt personlighetsstörningar. Mätningar med mätinstrumenten TAS-20, HADS samt KASAM-29 genomfördes vid fyra tillfällen; Affektskolas start, Affektskolans avslut samt åtta respektive sexton veckor efter avslut. Utöver detta distribuerades vid sista mättillfället ett kompletterande frågeformulär gällande subjektiv upplevelse av effekterna av Affektskolan. Resultaten tyder på tendenser till en ökad affektmedvetenhet samt en minskad psykisk ohälsa och att dessa effekter består och ökar över tid. Deltagarna rapporterar en måttlig grad av subjektivt upplevd förändring gällande känslor respektive psykisk hälsa samt att de i måttlig till stor grad tillskrev Affektskola dessa förändringar. Sammantaget indikerar studien att Affektskola har en positiv effekt på affektmedvetenhet och psykisk ohälsa. 

Abstract [en]

The present study is an evaluation of the treatment method Affect School in the context of adult psychiatry. The aim is to examine the effects of the Affect School on mental ill-health and affect consciousness, and how stable these effects are. The participants consist of 13 patients in psychiatric outpatient care with varying disorders, including mood disorders, ADHD and personality disorders. Assessments with the instruments TAS-20, HADS and KASAM-29 were performed on four occasions; before the start and by the completion of the Affect School and eight and sixteen weeks after completion. At the end of the study, an additional questionnaire regarding subjective experiences of the effect of the Affect School was distributed. The results indicate trends of increased affect consciousness as well as reduced mental ill-health and that these effects are stable and increases over time. Participants report a moderate degree of subjectively perceived change regarding emotions and mental health, and that they attributed Affect School these changes in a moderate to large extent. Overall, the study indicates that the Affect School has a positive effect on affect consciousness and mental health.
