Abstract [sv]

Studien syftade till att studera risk- och skyddsfaktorer som kan finnas i miljön när ett barn växer upp med en förälder med missbruksproblematik och/eller psykisk ohälsa. Studien var kvalitativ och data samlades in via åtta semistrukturerade intervjuer. Systemteori och anknytningsteori utgjorde den teoretiska tolkningsramen. Studien resulterade i åtta teman: relationen till föräldrar, relationen till syskon, viktiga personer, skola, fritidsaktiviteter, upprätthållandet av en fasad, känsloreaktioner samt överlevnadsstrategier. Dessa teman beskriver både risk- och skyddsfaktorer. Samtliga respondenter i studien växte upp med en eller båda föräldrarna med missbruksproblematik och/eller psykisk ohälsa. Resultatet visade att majoriteten troligtvis hade en bra anknytning till en av föräldrarna vilket fungerade som en skyddsfaktor, medan den "sjuka" föräldern utgjorde en riskfaktor. Flertalet av respondenterna berättade att de höll upp en fasad mot omgivningen och att endast ett fåtal utomstående släpptes in i familjehemligheten. En del uppgav att det var på grund av det dåliga bemötandet från omgivningen, vilket kunde bero på de rådande värderingar och normer som fanns i samhället under respondenternas uppväxt.

Abstract [en]

The research was aimed to study risk and protective factors that can be present in the environment when a child grows up with a parent with substance abuse and/or mental illness. The study was qualitative and data was collected through eight semi-structured interviews. Systems theory and attachment theory provided the theoretical framework of interpretation. The study resulted in eight themes: the relationship with parents, relationships with siblings, important people, school, recreational activities, maintaining a facade, emotional reactions and coping strategies. These themes represent both risk and protective factors. All respondents in the study grew up with one or both parents with substance abuse and/or mental illness. This result showed that the majority of the respondents probably had a good attachment to one of the parents which acted as a protective factor while the "sick" parent acted as a risk factor. The majority of respondents said they kept a facade towards the environment and only a few outsiders were allowed into the family secret. Some said it was because of the attitudes that excisted in the environment, which could be due to the predominating values and norms that existed in the society during the time when the respondents grew up.
