Abstract [sv]

Detta examensarbete fokuserar på medberoende, utifrån intervjuer med några som har växt upp med missbrukande föräldrar, och deras perspektiv angående livskvalité som medberoende personer. Syftet är att utifrån det psykosociala perspektivet, synliggöra risker med att växa upp i en missbruksfamilj som medberoende och hur det har påverkat utvecklingen av livskvaliteten i vuxen ålder. Studien består av forskningsstudier, litteraturgranskning och egen empirisk komponent, som omfattar intervjuer med fem medberoende personer varav tre har utvecklat eget missbruk som de har fått hjälp med.

 

Barn som växer upp i en dysfunktionell familj och utsätts för missbruksproblematik får diverse konsekvenser. Flertal vuxna barn till missbrukande föräldrar upplever att de hade växt upp i förtid och tog på sig den vuxnes roll. Instabila och opålitliga föräldrar gjorde att barnens tillvaro präglades av oorganiserad och komplicerad livsstil. Det ledde till att barnen kände sig ensamma och i ständig kamp om bekräftelse, någonting som följer med de till vuxen ålder.

Abstract [en]

This bachelor's thesis focuses on co-dependency from interview individual’s perspective who have their own experience in co-dependency from the childhood with one or both of their parents being dependent on alcohol or drug substance. The purpose of this thesis is to obtain an increased knowledge of the codependency phenomena based on the sociological perspective, reveal the risks of growing up in an addicted family as a co-dependent individual and how it has influenced the development of the quality of life in their adult age.

Thesis consists of research studies, literature review and own empirical component which includes qualitative interviews with five cohabiting individuals, of which three have developed their own addiction they have received help for.

The drawn conclusion is that co-dependency problem, just like substance abuse difficulty, is a complicated and ambiguous concept. Children who grow up in a dysfunctional family and are exposed to substance abuse problems from a young age, have different consequences. Many adult children of addicted parents experience that they were forced to grow up early and take upon the adult's role. Unstable and unreliable parents made the children's existence characterized by unorganized and complicated lifestyle where they felt alone and in constant struggle for confirmation, something that accompanies them into the adulthood.
