Title: My parent is an addict

 

A qualitative study about being a grown up child to addict parents.

 

 

Author: Johanna Lundgren

 

 

The purpose of the study was to investigate how adult daughters of addicts experienced their childhood and how they experienced being affected as children and adults. The study was based on a phenomenological approach and based its empirical data on semi-structured interviews with adult daughters of addicts. The main result showed growing up with several difficult events and the informants claim to have trust issues, a negative self-image or poor self-esteem and that they have taken unreasonable responsibility in relation to their age and situation. Problems in school are also highlighted by everyone in some form. An informant claimed to be a sober alcoholic and a use of other drugs had occurred among the informants. All informants themselves had been in relationships with addicts and all had some social involvement. The results were thematized and as an analysis tool Bronfenbrenner's ecological systems theory and social learning theory were used.

Sammanfattning

 

Titel: Min förälder är en missbrukare

 

En kvalitativ studie om att vara ett vuxet barn till missbrukande föräldrar

 

Författare: Johanna Lundgren

 

Studiens syfte var att undersöka hur vuxna döttrar till missbrukare upplevt sin barndom samt hur de upplevde sig ha blivit påverkade som barn och vuxen. Studien utgick från en fenomenologisk ansats och baserade sin empiri på semistrukturerade intervjuer med vuxna döttrar till missbrukare. Det huvudsakliga resultatet påvisade uppväxter med flera svåra händelser och informanterna uppger sig ha tillitsproblem en negativ självbild eller dålig självkänsla, samt att de har tagit ett orimligt ansvar i förhållande till sin ålder och sin situation.  Problem i skolan belyses även av samtliga i någon form. En informant uppgav sig vara nykter alkoholist och en användning av andra droger hade förekommit bland informanterna. Samtliga informanter hade själva haft relationer till missbrukare och alla hade i någon mån ett socialt engagemang. Resultatet tematiserades och som analysverktyg användes Bronfenbrenners ekologiska systemteori samt den sociala inlärningsteorin.
