Abstract [sv]

I den här uppsatsen kommer aspekten kropp-själ- och sinne att diskuteras huruvida den är en saknad komponent i kliniskt socialt arbete i väst, och om yoga skulle kunna bidra som en mer holistisk och mångfasetterad modell. Yoga inkluderar fysiska positioner, kontrollerade andningsövningar, meditation och attityder i livet som bygger på att inte skada sig själv eller något levande. Yoga bjuder in utövaren att till öka självdisciplin, kontroll över impulser, tankar och känslor. I resultatdelen presenteras hur den österländska disciplinen har påverkat deltagarnas rehabilitering från sitt missbruk. Det kommer att diskuteras om yogan är ett verktyg för att komma i kontakt med kropp, andning och sinne och genom ökad medvetenhet kunna kontrollera ilska, stress, ångest och begär - överväldigande känslor som kan vara utlösare till missbruk. Det här är en kvalitativ studie som har som mål att utforska deltagarnas upplevelse av yoga som ett komplement i sin rehabilitering. Intervjuerna gjordes på tre olika Kripa Foundation center i Indien, dels som fokusgruppintervjuer, dels individuella intervjuer.
