: A literature study of attitudes and approaches towards families with diagnosed children (English)
Abstract [en]

The issue of diagnosed children has been heavily debated in the media over the

past decade. This study deals with the issue of diagnosis from a family perspective

and utilizes a method of thematic analysis trough a literature review of four

autobiographies that describes the parents experience of the diagnosis issue

regarding attitudes and responses towards their children and family. The purpose is

to create a greater understanding of the family situation and to explore new

approaches and strategies to counter psychological affliction and exclusion in

society. The results show a widespread exclusion based on the main themes,

internal and external influences. These themes represent exclusion factors like for

example inexperience in dealing with power bearing institutions such as schools

and health facilities and creates few opportunities for socialization processes due

to the child's disability, stigma. Both of these themes can be seen as a result of

sensory deprivation. The attitudes and responses of society towards the stigma

bearing child has a great negative impact on the families with diagnosed children.

Abstract [sv]

Diagnosfrågan har varit starkt omdebatterad i media under det senaste decenniet.

Dennas studie behandlar diagnosfrågan ur ett familjeperspektiv genom en

kvalitativ ansats via en litteraturstudie och tematisk analys av fyra självbiografier.

Syftet med studien är att belysa diagnosbärande barns föräldrars erfarenheter kring

omgivningens attityder och bemötande samt skapa en ökad förståelse för

familjernas livssituation. Vidare menar den kommande analysen till att kunna

utröna nya förhållningssätt och strategier för att motverka psykisk ohälsa i dessa

familjer. Resultatet visar på ett utbrett utanförskap som redovisas i två

huvudteman, inre och yttre påverkan. Dessa teman representerar faktorer som

okunskap i bemötande och attityder inom maktbärande institutioner men även i ett

fördomsfullt och toleranslöst bemötande från den närmaste omgivningen.

Resultatet visar även att utanförskapet skapar få möjligheter till

socialiseringsprocesser på grund av de negativa attityderna kring barnets

funktionsnedsättning och beteende, detta kan ses som en följd av sensorisk

deprivation.
