Abstract [sv]

Personer som lider av emotionellt instabil personlighetsstörning (IPS) upplever mångfacetterad aktivitetsobalans i sin vardag. Arbetsterapeuter strävar till att stödja aktivitetsbalans och öka upplevelsen av tillfredsställelse men kunskapen om hur man kan stödja dessa personers upplevelse av balans är bristfällig. Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva hur arbetsterapeuter resonerar kring att stödja aktivitetsbalans hos personer som lider av IPS. Sju arbetsterapeuter intervjuades för ändamålet. Materialet analyserades enligt kvalitativ innehållsanalys. Resultatet framhävde som resonemangets grunddrag att variera mellan teoribaser samt mellan att arbeta med synliga aktivitetsmönster och upplevd balans. Det reflekterar att arbetsterapeuters metoder och resonemang kan bidra till att skapa aktivitetsbalans. Nya insatser som mångsidigare inbegriper det sociala sammanhanget behövs Vidare forsnkning behövs om de arbetsterapeutiska insatsernas effekter för att stärka deras evidens.

Abstract [en]

People suffering from emotionally unstable personality disorder face various forms of occupational imbalance in their daily life. Occupational therapists strive to suppport occupational balance and thus increase the experience of satisfaction. Knowledge of how to support the experience of balance is yet insufficient. The aim of this study was to describe the reasoning of occupational therapists when working with people suffering from emotionally unstable personality disorder and supporting occupational balance. Seven occupational therapists were interviewed. Analyses were conducted using qualitative content analysis. Results emphasise that the reasoning is based upon combining different theoretical perspectives and varying between working with visible occupational patterns and individually experienced balance. This accentuates that the reasoning and methods of occupational therapists may contribute to create occupational balance. Broader methods considering also the social context are needed. Also, further studies evaluating the effects of already existing methods used in occupational therapy is needed to strengthen the evidence.
