Abstract [sv]

What is it that drives a person with criminal behavior to change their lifestyle? What are the obstacles to a lifestyle change? These issues have been guiding us during this study. In the introduction, we describe the previous research that has been done among crime in men. The themes that will follow us through the course of the study are as follows; cause of crime, Self-efficacy, social network and lifestyle change. The aim of the study was to investigate the factors that a former prison convicted individual believes has been significant, as they break their criminal behavior associated with a lifestyle change. The study is based on a qualitative approach, where in-depth interview was done so participants had the opportunity to talk about their lifestyle changes. The results demonstrated that in order to make a lifestyle change and be able to break a delinquent behavior, it is of great importance when in social work dealing with people, build trust and build a relationship. The result also shows that the participants feel disappointed about how they have been treated and treated by the authorities. In the discussion presented it in running text with headings for each theme, where we discuss what that was like and unlike with the results and previous research. A great similarity that we discuss and that we found is that previous research and the participants mentions trust and building relationships is important. It also discusses the shortcomings, so participants do not feel they have earned the confidence of the authorities. We will also discuss about future research in which we suggest further research in what their needs are former criminals need to implement a lifestyle change.
