Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna uppsats är att utifrån ett socialpsykologiskt perspektiv undersöka hur poliser bearbetar problematiska emotionella upplevelser som uppstår i de sociala interaktioner de ingår i under en arbetsdag. Vidare är syftet att undersöka vad poliserna själva har en önskan om att uppnå när det gäller bearbetning av emotionell påfrestning.    Studien har en kvalitativ hermeneutisk ansats och baseras på åtta semistrukturerade intervjuer. För att analysera resultatet av studien har följande teorier använts; Erving Goffmans dramaturgiska perspektiv, Björn Nilssons rollbeskrivning, Tomas. J. Scheffs teori om skam och stolthet samt Arlie Hochschilds beskrivning av emotionellt arbete.    Resultatet visar att polisernas roll är tydlig och att förväntningarna på rollen är höga. Vidare visar studien vikten av en gemenskap inom arbetslaget som präglas av tillit och öppenhet då de till facto håller varandras liv i sina händer. Bearbetningen sker främst genom mental förberedelse samt samtal och stöttning inom tur-laget.

Abstract [en]

   The purpose of this study from a social psychological perspective to examine how police officers process problematic emotions that arise in the social interactions they are part of on a working day. Further on to explore the officers view on processing of emotional stress.

   The study has a qualitative hermeneutical approach and is based on eight semi-structured interviews. To analyze the results of the study, the following theories have been used; Erving Goffman's dramaturgical perspective, Björn Nilsson's role description, Tomas. J. Scheff's theory of shame and pride, and Arlie Hochschilds description of emotional labor.    The result shows that the policemen's role is clear and that expectations of the role are high. The study also shows the importance of a community within the work team that is characterized by trust and openness when they actually hold each other's lives in their hands. The processing of emotions are done primarily by mental preparation as well as conversation and support within the work team.
