Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Parenting is increasingly seen as a profession which requires training and support with the purpose of creating improved interaction. A central question appears to be how the concept of interaction is defined. The aim of this study is to examine how training programs, trainers and parents perceive this concept, whether they define it the same way and whether trainers succeed in reaching parents with the message of what it actually is that will improve in the area of interaction. The study uses a phenomenological approach and a qualitative method.
The research subject is the parental training program Komet, a manual-based education program for parents. The goal of the program is to offer families training in methods that have strong scientific support in order to reduce conflicts and to improve the relation and interaction between children and parents.
One important result of the study is that parents and trainers viewed the concept of interaction from different perspectives. While the trainers described the interactions based on the parents’ attitudes towards the child, the parents focused on the child’s behavior. This resulted in difficulty for the parents to recognize other changes than changes in behavior.
