"The staff room was my worst nightmare" : A study of how people with social anxiety experience that limited participation in social activities affects them in everyday life (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Social ångest yttrar sig genom att personen känner rädsla inför situationer där det finns risk att bli granskad av andra och undviker därför ofta att utsätta sig för detta.  Personer som lever med social ångest upplever ofta försämrad livskvalité till följd av begränsad delaktighet i aktivitet. Syfte: Att beskriva hur personer med social ångest upplever att begränsad delaktighet i sociala aktiviteter påverkar dem i vardagen. Metod: Examensarbetet genomfördes som en kvalitativ fokusgruppsintervju genom en grupp via Facebook. Bekvämlighetsurval tillämpades via grupper på Facebook som riktar sig till personer med social ångest. Totalt elva deltagare medverkade i diskussionsgruppen. Intervjufrågorna publicerades som inlägg och deltagarna fick delge sina erfarenheter i kommentarsfälten där de även fick följdfrågor. Data analyserades genom kvalitativ innehållsanalys. Resultat: Deltagarna upplevde att begränsningar i delaktighet i sociala aktiviteter påverkade dem inom tre huvudkategorier; Bristande delaktighet i vardagliga aktiviteter, obehag av folksamlingar samt utanförskap.  Personerna upplevde omfattande svårigheter vid interaktion med andra människor, vilket påverkade deras delaktighet i sociala aktiviteter negativt. Slutsats: Deltagarna upplevde att begränsningar i sociala aktiviteter orsakade bristande delaktighet i vardagliga aktiviteter, begränsad förmåga att vistas bland främmande människor, platser med mycket folk, i nya miljöer samt att det kunde leda till utanförskap.

Abstract [en]

Background: Social anxiety manifest in a person as fear and avoidance for a situation where there is a risk to feel judged by others. People living with social anxiety often experience impaired quality of life due to limited participation in activity. Purpose: To describe how people with social anxiety experience that limited participation in social activities affects them in everyday life. Method: The thesis was conducted as a qualitative interview by a group discussion through Facebook. Convenience sample was applied through Facebook groups aimed at people with social anxiety. A total of eleven participants attended the discussion group. The interview questions were published as post and the participants share their experiences in the comment section, where the authors also asked follow-up questions. Data was analysed by a qualitative content analysis. Result: The participants experienced that limitations in social activity participation affected them within three main categories; insufficient participation in everyday activities, discomfort of crowds and social exclusion. The participants experienced severe difficulties in interacting with other people, which affected their participation in social activities in a negative way. Conclusion: The participants experienced that limitations in social activities caused lack of participation in everyday activities, limited ability to be around strangers, places with a lot of people, new environments and could lead to social exclusion.
