Abstract [sv]

Uppsatsen ämnar belysa brännmärkningsfenomenet utifrån ett ungdomsperspektiv samt bidra till ökad kunskap inom området. Syftet med studien är att finna en eventuell koppling mellan ungdomar som blivit placerade på ett hem samt deras upplevelser kring brännmärkning. Detta kopplas följaktligen till Erving Goffmans stigmateori. Frågeställningarna omfattade huruvida ungdomarna upplever och påverkas av sin eventuella brännmärkning samt hur placerade ungdomar upplever att samhället uppfattar dem, bland annat speglat via medier. Uppsatsen har utgått ifrån en kvalitativ ansats där nio intervjuer genomförts och bearbetats. Tre av intervjuerna gjorda med ungdomar som placerats och de återstående sex gjordes med kunnig personal och ansvariga för olika hem i södra och mellersta Sverige. Studien har även kompletterats med litteratur och tidigare forskning inom området. Resultaten visar bland annat att ungdomarna uppfattar sig som missförstådda och stigmatiserade utav samhället.

Abstract [en]

This paper intends to highlight the branding phenomenon from a youth perspective and contribute to increased knowledge within the field. The purpose of this study is to find a possible link between young institutionalized people and their experiences of branding. This is linked to Erving Goffman's Stigma theory. The questions included whether young people perceive and are affected by their potential branding and how institutionalized adolescents feel that society perceives them, among other things, reflected through the media. The thesis has been based on a qualitative approach where nine interviews were conducted and processed. Three of the interviews done with the young institutionalized people and the remaining six done with skilled professionals and managers of homes in southern and central Sweden. The study was also supplemented with literature and previous research within the field. The results show among other things that young people see themselves as misunderstood and stigmatized out of society.
