Ready to intervene : A qualitative study examining why people intervene in dangerous situations (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka varför människor ingriper i farligasituationer. För att bemöta syftet har 11 respondenter med ingriparerfarenheter frånfarliga situationer intervjuats. Det är respondenternas tankar om varför de ingripit sompresenteras i denna studie. Det inspelade intervjumaterialet har transkriberats ochanalyserats utifrån en induktiv tematisk metod. Ur analysen framträdde sexhuvudteman som påverkat respondenterna att ingripa: Instinkt, Erfarenhet, Moral,Empati, Medvetande och Disinhibering. Dessa huvudteman kunde sedansammanfattas i ett kärntema: Handlingsberedskap. Denna Handlingsberedskap kanses som den mest gemensamma förklaringen till varför respondenterna ingripit.Sammantaget visar resultatet på att respondenterna ingripit utifrån olika huvudteman,men att samtliga respondenter besuttit Handlingsberedskap. Det verkar som attHandlingsberedskap är en förutsättning för ingripande.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate why people intervene in dangeroussituations. To answer this purpose, 11 respondents with intervening experiences fromdangerous situations were interviewed. The respondents’ thoughts about why theyintervened are presented. The recorded interviews were transcribed and analysedthrough an inductive thematic approach. From the analysis, the following six mainthemes appeared: Instinct, Experience, Moral, Empathy, Consciousness andDisinhibition. The main themes are explanations to why the respondents intervened.These main themes where then summarized into a core theme: Readiness to act. ThisReadiness to act can be considered as the single nearest explanation to why therespondents intervened. In sum, the result shows that, even though the respondentsintervened out of different main themes, they have all possessed the Readiness to act.It seems that Readiness to act is a prerequisite for intervention.
