Out of home care : Experiences of foster care (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet är att undersöka vad som kännetecknar upplevelser och erfarenheter av familjehemsplaceringar med huvudsakligt fokus på relationer och familjens betydelse. Studien utgår från ett kvalitativt, hermeneutiskt förhållningssätt med tematisk analys gjord på svar från skriftliga intervjuer. Deltagarna bestod av personer med olika erfarenheter av familjehemsplaceringar, dels genom att ha varit placerad, dels tidigare arbetat som familjehemssekreterare. De teman som visade sig känneteckna upplevelser och erfarenheter av familjehemsplaceringar var familjeliv, känslor och utveckling som till stor del handlar om inställningen hos berörda parter. Detta är faktorer som påverkar dels hur pass lyckad placeringen blir, dels huruvida en relation uppstår mellan familjehemplacerad. Utifrån denna studies resultat kan slutsatsen dras att familjehemsplaceringar är komplext och innefattar många faktorer. I och med att placeringens utfall verkar påverkas av inställningen hos berörda parter är det viktigt att arbeta för att samtliga är positiva till vården, samt att den placerade får hjälp att kunna ta emot vården och känslomässigt ta till sig familjehemmet.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to examine experiences of placements in foster care, with the main focus on relations and the importance of the foster family. The study is based on the qualitative, hermeneutic approach with a thematic analysis made on the answers of the participants’ written accounts. The par­ticipants consisted of persons with different experiences of foster care, either they had previously been placed in out of home care, or they worked as social workers. The themes that seemed to characterize experiences of placements in foster care was family life, emotions and development, which to a great extend also depended on the attitudes of the parties involved. These are factors which appeared to affect both how successful the placement become, and whether a relationship arises between the foster home and the person placed in foster care. Based on these results it can be concluded that placements in foster care are complex and include various factors. As the placements outcome seems influenced by the attitudes of the parties concerned, it is important to work towards ensuring that all concerned are positive and that the person who is placed receive help, in order to be able to benefit from the care offered from the foster family and emotionally embrace them.
