The Phenomenon of Separation and Its Consequences: The Experiences of Eight Adults (English)
Abstract [sv]

Att människor som levt tillsammans väljer att gå skilda vägar är i dagens samhälle ett vanligtförekommande fenomen. Många berörs på något sätt och det finns skäl att anta att detpåverkar människors beteenden och upplevelser av relationer. Syftet med föreliggande studievar att skapa en djupare förståelse för hur människor upplever sig ha påverkats av enseparation. För att kunna uppfylla syftet användes en fenomenografisk ansats. Data samladesin genom semistrukturerade intervjuer med åtta individer och analyserades med hjälp av entematisk innehållsanalys. Fyra av deltagarna hade föräldrar som separerat då de var barnvarav en av de även själv hade separerat, två individer vars föräldrar separerade i tonårensamt två individer som själva genomgått en separation. Resultatet visade att tilliten irelationer till andra, främst i kärleksrelationer påverkade individerna på ett negativt sätt tillföljd av att de upplevt en separation. Resultatet visade också att individerna har utvecklatstrategier för att hantera separationer och konsekvenser av en separation. De intervjuadebeskrev att anknytningen till föräldrarna på ett eller annat sätt varit bristande. I vissa fallredan i tidig ålder, till båda föräldrarna, men även i de fall där anknytningen varit god tillden ena föräldern verkar det inte vara tillräckligt för att skydda individerna från problem isina egna kärleksrelationer.

The purpose of this study was to get adeeper understanding of how people experience that they have been affected by a separation.To fulfill the purpose a phenomenographic method was used. To collect data, eightparticipants were interviewed, and data was analyzed through a thematic content analysismethod. Four of the participants had parents who had separated when they were children andone of them had also separated from a partner. Two of them had parents who had separatedwhen they were teenagers, and two had separated from a partner. The results showed that thetrust to other people, mainly in romantic relationships, was negatively affected afterexperiencing a separation. The results also showed that these individuals had developeddifferent strategies to cope better with separations as well as consequences of a separation.The participants described that the attachment to their parents was lacking in some way oranother. Some of them experienced lacking attachment at an early age, some to both theirparents, but even when experiencing good attachment to one of their parents it was notenough to protect them from having problems in their own relationships.
