”You must have the courage to ask” : - Psychotherapist’s experience of transcultural trauma focused treatment (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte var att undersöka psykoterapeuters upplevelser av arbete med traumatiserade patienter från andra kulturer. Fokus låg på att undersöka de svårigheter och hinder som kan uppstå till följd av kulturella skillnader mellan terapeut och patient. Högre förekomst av psykiatriska tillstånd bland flyktingar i kombination med postmigratoriska sårbarhetsfaktorer ställer krav på terapeuters kompetens. Kvalitativ metod med semistrukturerade intervjuer användes. Data analyserades tematiskt utifrån ett socialkonstruktivistiskt perspektiv. Resultaten visar att kulturell kompetens är otillräcklig inom mångkulturell vård och framhäver ett behov av ökad insikt i den egna kulturen, inklusive det västerländska synsättet på psykisk ohälsa. Studien lyfter fram betydelsen av en ideografisk ansats i terapisammanhang och förespråkar ett kritiskt förhållningssätt till det västerländska perspektivet vid arbete med patienter från andra kulturer.

Abstract [en]

The aim of the study was to explore psychotherapist’s experience of trauma focused treatment with transcultural encounters, focusing on examining difficulties and obstacles that might arise due to cultural differences between therapist and patient. Higher prevalence of psychiatric illness among refugees in combination with post-migration vulnerabilities requires competence among therapists.  Qualitative approach with semi-structured interviews was used and data was analyzed thematically from a social-constructivist perspective. Results show that cultural competence is insufficient within transcultural care settings and highlights the need for increased insight into care givers own culture, including the Western perspective of psychiatric illness. The study emphasizes the value of an ideographic approach in therapy and suggests a critical attitude towards the Western perspective when working with transcultural patients.
