    Copingstrategier för att hantera stress och oro hos KBT- och övriga studenter2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    How stress and anxiety are handled is vital to health. To develop knowledge about coping this study aims to investigate differences in the prevalence and correlation between problemfocused, emotionfocused and avoidanceoriented coping and also in defensive pessimism. A quantitative survey was conducted with 62 CBT-students and 87 other students from different courses. The results showed that CBT students use problemfocused coping more than other students, that other students use emotionfocused coping more than CBT-students and that older CBT-students use defensive pessimism less than younger CBT-students. A negative correlation was also found between problemfocused and emotionfocused coping and a positive correlation between emotionfocused coping and defensive pessimism. In summary, the study shows that there are correlations between, as well as age- and educational differences in the use of different coping strategies.

    Bilaga 2: En utvärdering av Skolval 20102015In: Öva och ta ställning: En utvärdering av arbetet med skolvalen 2014 / [ed] Björnstam, Linnea, Myndigheten för ungdoms- och civilsamhällesfrågor , 2015, , p. 9p. 47-55Chapter in book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna rapport är att: (a) redogöra för vilka elever som deltog i skolvalet 2010, (b) samt undersöka huruvida deltagandet i skolvalet har någon effekt på ungas intresse för politik/samhällsfrågor, politiska diskussioner med föräldrar och vänner, intention att rösta i framtida val samt politiskt deltagande. För denna undersökning används först och främst enkätdata från Political socialization Project (PSP); en pågående longitudinell studie som undersöker framväxten av unga människors politiska attityder och engagemang (Amnå, Ekström, Kerr & Stattin, 2009). Analyserna i denna rapport omfattar endast elever i PSP-studien vars skola anmält till Myndigheten för ungdoms- och civilsamhällesfrågor att de genomfört skolval. Totalt omfattar de analyser som denna rapport baseras på 3 högstadieskolor och 3 gymnasieskolor vilket sammantaget blir 860 elever.

    Dissatisfied citizens: an asset or a burden in democratic functioning of a society?Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Past research has shown that, whereas the majority of people in democracies support the idea of democracy as a form of governance, some citizens are dissatisfied with the democratic institutions and the way democracy performs. In this paper, we examined democratic characteristics of dissatisfied youths to understand the role they play in the democratic functioning of a society. Based on youth’s dissatisfaction with the performance of political institutions and the principles of democracy, we identified four groups distinct of citizens. Then, we compared these groups in terms of their political engagement, knowledge and interest, values and attitudes, and law breaking attitudes. The results showed that youths with high levels of principle- and performance-driven dissatisfaction were less likely to participate in politics, less knowledgeable and interested in political issues, and more likely to break the laws, even if people got hurt compared to other three groups. In contrast, youths who were only dissatisfied with the performance of democratic institutions were more likely to participate in politics, and have higher humanistic values and tolerance towards immigrants. By examining distinct groups of dissatisfied citizens and their democratic characteristics, the current study contributes to the general debate on the role of dissatisfied citizens in democracies.

    Dissatisfied Citizens: An Asset to or a Liability on the Democratic Functioning of Society?2015In: Scandinavian Political Studies, ISSN 0080-6757, E-ISSN 1467-9477, Vol. 38, no 4, p. 410-436Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Past research has shown that, although a majority of citizens in democracies support the idea of democracy as a form of governance, some tend to be distrustful of democratic institutions and express dissatisfaction with the way democracy works. It is argued in this article that to better understand the role of various groups of dissatisfied citizens in the democratic functioning of a society, one should examine their democratic characteristics. Based on youth's dissatisfaction with the performance of political institutions and the principles of democracy, four distinct groups of citizens are identified. These groups are then compared in terms of their political engagement, knowledge and interest, values and attitudes, and disposition to break the law. The results showed that youths with high levels of principle- and performance-driven dissatisfaction were less likely to participate in politics, less knowledgeable and interested in political issues, and more likely to break the law, even if people got hurt compared with other groups. In contrast, youths who were only dissatisfied with the performance of democratic institutions were more likely to participate in politics, and had higher tolerance towards immigrants, and political interest and knowledge. They were also more likely, peacefully and without harming other people, to break the law to change society. Overall, by examining distinct groups of dissatisfied citizens and their democratic characteristics, this study contributes to the general debate on the role of dissatisfied citizens in democracies.

    Kognitiv beteende-terapeutisk behandling för pedofiler och övriga sexualbrottslingar.: - En kvalitativ litteraturstudie om effekter och utvärderingsproblematik på kvantitativ forskning. 2017Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Sammanfattning

    Följande studie är en kvalitativ litteraturstudie, grundat på kvantitativ forskning, som undersöker det befintliga kunskapsläget angående de långsiktiga behandlingseffekterna rörande sambandet mellan KBT-inriktad behandling och återfall hos pedofiler och övriga sexualförbrytare. Studien syftar till att granska vilket utfall KBT-inriktade behandlingsprogram har för vuxna, manliga pedofiler samt övriga sexualförbrytare. Vidare ämnar litteraturstudien att undersöka om befintlig forskning tar hänsyn till och belyser problematiken som kan uppstå i samband med utvärderingar av behandlingsprogrammen. 14 kvantitativa vetenskapliga artiklar har inkluderats och ligger till grund för denna litteraturöversikt. De vetenskapliga artiklarna har genom en tematisk analys syntetiserats och analyserats utifrån stämplingsteorin samt begreppen makt och stigma. Resultatet av litteraturöversikten visar att KBT- inriktade behandlingsprogram visar blandade resultat när det kommer till att minska återfallsfrekvensen hos pedofiler och övriga sexualförbrytare. Vidare visar resultatet att de studier som inkluderats i denna litteraturöversikt i olika grad tagit hänsyn till och belyst olika problem som kan uppstå i samband med utvärderingar, men generellt är denna aspekt väldigt bristfällig i samtliga studier. Det framkom även att samtliga artiklar hade olika förutsättningar i sina studier då de exempelvis har olika uppföljningstider, har utfört behandlingsprogrammen på olika institutioner, majoriteten saknar en definition av återfall samt att artiklarna inkluderat olika typer av sexualförbrytare i sina studier. Därav är det inte möjligt att sammanställa resultaten av samtliga inkluderade artiklar. Utifrån detta går det således heller inte att veta huruvida KBT-inriktade behandlingsprogram är verksamma för de olika typerna av sexualförbrytare.

    Svensk kriminalvård: Receptet på ett framgångsrikt återanpassningssystem2012Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Kriminalvården ansvarar för att lagöverträdare straffas och återanpassas till samhället, ett dubbelt uppdrag som kräver att klientarbetet är av hög kvalitet för att kunna säkerställa att insatserna är återfallsförebyggande. Den svenska kriminalvårdsmodellen har tilldelats mycket beröm genom att den grundar sig i en humanistisk människosyn och värnar om intagnas mänskliga rättigheter och integritet. Föreliggande studie syftar till att undersöka hur den svenska kriminalvården genom visionen "bättre ut" införlivar samhällsuppdraget om rågången mellan straff och behandling. Vidare är syftet att jämföra svenska effektstudier avseende minskade återfall i brott med internationell utvärderingsforskning för att kunna bedöma huruvida den svenska kriminalvårdsmodellen är mer framgångsrik och effektiv. Föreliggande studie är en kombinerad teoretisk uppsats och en systematisk litteraturöversikt. Studiens resultat påvisar att kriminalvårdens målsättning avseende effektiv återanpassning är svår att uppnå. Detta till följd av olika samverkansfaktorer och förhållanden, hos intagna, personal samt behandlingen i sig, som inverkar på den intagnes behandlingsutveckling. Några centrala faktorer som påverkar förändringsarbetet avser grad av motivation, kön, ålder, syn- och förhållningssätt hos personalen, kompetens, utbildning, arbetsvillkor, programkomponenter och behandlingsmiljö. Med utgångspunkt i nationell och internationell utvärderingsforskning framkommer att den svenska kriminalvårdsmodellen inte är mer framgångsrik i jämförelse med internationella kriminalvårdsmodeller. Det framgår ändock att behandling är gynnsamt trots att inte alla effektstudier påvisar några signifikanta skillnader avseende återfall i brott.

    Unga vuxnas erfarenhet av vårdnadstvist i barndomen: En kvalitativ studie kring separationens och vårdnadstvistens inverkan på samlevnadsfrågor2012Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the essay is to examine whether, and if so how, young adults' experiences of separation and contested custody between parents during childhood influenced their attitudes to coexistence issues. Further, the intention is to seek answers to questions regarding: the best interests of the child, attitudes towards relationships, separation and marriage, as well as the current relationship to the parents. The interpretative framework adopted to interpret and understand the empirical material is based on the initial provisions under chapter 6, some risks with the social workers' approach, the children's sense of responsibility, loyalty and concealment, the child’s survival strategies as well as cognitive dissonance theory.  These are considered effective to highlight young adults' experiences in childhood and their attitudes to coexistence issues. A qualitative method was applied to obtain the empirical material. Five female respondents were interviewed using a semi-structured interview guide. The essay’s findings indicate that the principle of the child’s best interests is not always applicable for the young adults during childhood. Their attitude towards relationships, separation and marriage is characterized by an open attitude to different family constellations with good qualities, positive and negative consequences of their parents' separation and a desire to get married in the future. The relationship today remains good with one parent, while the relationship with the other parent differs.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to identify which treatment models that are available for men who use violence against women in intimate relationships and the effects of the most commonly used treatment interventions. The further aim is to examine the theoretical assumptions and processing content of treatment models. The present study was conducted as a literature review where knowledge about treatment models for violent men in intimate relationships are compiled. Our results demonstrate that the treatment models that are most commonly used are Emerge, The Duluth Model, Change and ATV (Alternatives to Violence). Evaluations show that most treatment models exhibit small but significant effects and recurrence of violent crime decreases in the short term. Research highlights, however problems about the difficulties associated with evaluating treatment programs.

    Transparens i svensk valkampanjfinansiering2013Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Despite the fact that the issue has been discussed for several decades, there are still no rules in Sweden mandating political parties and candidates to disclose received donations. Because of this lack of transparency, Sweden is not fulfilling some of its international obligations and has fallen behind in the international trend to increase the transparency of election campaign finance. The lack of disclosure rules in Sweden has led to extensive criticism, most notably from the Council of Europe´s group of states against corruption, Greco, who criticized Sweden in light of the guidelines on the subject from the Council of Europe. At this writing, a new proposal for disclosure rules is being prepared at the Department of Justice, DoJ. The proposal is to be presented in spring 2013. For the time being, the only thing that exists regarding transparency of election finance in Sweden is an agreement from 2000, struck between some of the parties in parliament, to voluntarily disclose some of their received donations.

    In 2004 a government report proposed implementing disclosure rules. The proposal received extensive criticism from the reviewing bodies regarding its compliance with the rights protection in the Swedish Instrument of Government, RF. RF provides absolute protection against the government forcing individuals to disclose their opinions in political matters and absolute protection against the government keeping records of individuals' political opinions. Since these rights are absolute, they can be restricted only by constitutional amendment. It is uncertain if disclosure rules can be considered infringements under these absolute provisions, but even if they are considered infringements, it is likely that the disclosure provisions can be designed so as not to violate the RF absolute protections. Furthermore, RF provides relative protection of the freedom of expression and association. Disclosure rules would probably not infringe the freedom of expression but are likely to be considered infringements of the freedom of association. Restrictions of the freedom of association can only be implemented in the order specified in RF and since the order for restricting the freedom of association is very rigid, it is unlikely that such a restriction would be allowed under the current RF. The DoJ has expressed that the pending proposal will not include a proposal for a constitutional amendment.

    For Sweden to fulfill its international obligations in regards of transparency in campaign finance, more extensive disclosure rules must be implemented than those included in the agreement between some parties in parliament and those included in the 2004 proposal. The DoJ has expressed, however, that the pending proposal will be modeled upon both the voluntary agreement and the 2004 proposal.

    It is therefore not entirely unlikely that the pending proposal will be either illegal under the constitution or not far reaching enough, or both.

    ASI - verksamt eller värdelöst?: En kvalitativ undersökning om personalen på socialtjänstens tilltro till bedömningsinstrumentet ASI (Addiction Severity Index)2012Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Evidence-based practice in social services presupposes that the professionals are in favor of research-based knowledge on services an the use of assessment instruments. The purpose of this study is to examining the confidence of social workers in an adult unit, in a small town has to assess the instrument Addiction Severity Index (ASI). The study is a qualitative survey ans semi-structured interviews were chosen as a method to answer the purpose and research questions. A total of six respondents were interviewed; four social workers, one project manager and the head of unit in operation. Research shows that social workers experience different advantages and disadvantages in the use of ASI. The results show that social workers use the ASI on a regular basis in their work, but there are difficulties in implementing the ASI follow-up interview. All social workers feel that the ASI base interview is time consuming and has concerns with some of the questions. Nevertheless, they express that the use of the ASI can contribute to a legal security perspective, a structured approach and a good basis for treatment planning. The study also discusses areas for improvement in the ASI.

    Abstract [en]

    This study examined cultural differences in the cognitive and emotional aspects of subjective well-being, more specifically the levels of positive, negative and balance affect and how these affect cognitive well-being. It involves 212 infertile women in the individualistic country Sweden and the collectivistic country Iran. Analyses of correlation, stepwise and linear regression as well as One-Way ANOVA were used to answer the research questions. The results showed no cultural difference in cognitive well-being, and Swedish women reported higher levels of affect while the Iranian to a higher extent experienced positive and negative emotions simultaneously. Balance affect was the best predictor for well-being in both samples.

    The impact of pain information on pain intensity An experimental study on violation of expectations and conflicting information2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Previous research has shown that there are several components involved in how we perceive pain, e.g. social and psychological factors such as expectations of pain. A cold pressor experiment was conducted to investigate the impact of negative/positive information on pain perception. We also investigated if a cognitive conflict created by disconfirming information of a pain expectation influences the pain experience. 106 participants (49 men and 57 women) got to hold their hand in 5°C water for 1 minute. The main outcome variable was self-reported pain during the cold pressor test. The results show that participants receiving negative information perceived more pain than the group receiving positive information. There was no significant difference in pain perception between those who were confirmed or disconfirmed in an expectation, nor was there a difference in cognitive conflict between the two groups. This is a first attempt to explore pain and cognitive conflict and can work as an inspiration for further investigation.

    Återinträde till samhället efter fängelsestraff: - Före detta kriminellas beskrivning av vardagens svårigheter samt bemötande från socialtjänst och frivård2014Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med föreliggande studie är att skapa en förståelse kring hur före detta kriminella upplever och hanterar sin vardag efter frigivning från fängelse. Vidare syftar studien till att skapa en förståelse för hur de upplever bemötandet av stödjande myndigheter, såsom socialtjänsten och frivården. För att erhålla data genomförs fyra kvalitativa intervjuer med före detta kriminella vid en stödorganisation. Vårt urval består av före detta kriminella män och kvinnor som var över 20 år. Samtliga har suttit minst ett år i fängelse och har därefter bestämt sig för att avstå från brott. Resultatet analyseras utifrån Beckers stämplingsteori och Hirschis kontrollteori, samt ett relationellt maktbegrepp. Resultatet visar att respondenterna upplever olika svårigheter såsom att återuppta gamla relationer, umgås med "normala människor", ordna ett boende och återuppbygga sitt självförtroende. Respondenterna hanterar ibland sina svårigheter genom att de tillfälligt återgår till ett tidigare missbruk. Respondenterna har olika upplevelser kring bemötandet av socialtjänsten, medan deras upplevelser av bemötandet från frivården är mer likartade. En slutsats är att stämpling från omgivningen är en orsak till en del av de svårigheter de upplever efter frigivningen.

    Dissociable relations between amygdala subregional networks and psychopathy trait dimensions in conduct-disordered juvenile offenders2016In: Human Brain Mapping, ISSN 1065-9471, E-ISSN 1097-0193, Vol. 37, no 11, p. 4017-4033Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Psychopathy is a serious psychiatric phenomenon characterized by a pathological constellation of affective (e.g., callous, unemotional), interpersonal (e.g., manipulative, egocentric), and behavioral (e.g., impulsive, irresponsible) personality traits. Though amygdala subregional defects are suggested in psychopathy, the functionality and connectivity of different amygdala subnuclei is typically disregarded in neurocircuit-level analyses of psychopathic personality. Hence, little is known of how amygdala subregional networks may contribute to psychopathy and its underlying trait assemblies in severely antisocial people. We addressed this important issue by uniquely examining the intrinsic functional connectivity of basolateral (BLA) and centromedial (CMA) amygdala networks in relation to affective, interpersonal, and behavioral traits of psychopathy, in conduct-disordered juveniles with a history of serious delinquency (N = 50, mean age = 16.83 ± 1.32). As predicted, amygdalar connectivity profiles exhibited dissociable relations with different traits of psychopathy. Interpersonal psychopathic traits not only related to increased connectivity of BLA and CMA with a corticostriatal network formation accommodating reward processing, but also predicted stronger CMA connectivity with a network of cortical midline structures supporting sociocognitive processes. In contrast, affective psychopathic traits related to diminished CMA connectivity with a frontolimbic network serving salience processing and affective responding. Finally, behavioral psychopathic traits related to heightened BLA connectivity with a frontoparietal cluster implicated in regulatory executive functioning. We suggest that these trait-specific shifts in amygdalar connectivity could be particularly relevant to the psychopathic phenotype, as they may fuel a self-centered, emotionally cold, and behaviorally disinhibited profile.

    Riskfaktorer till våldsbrott -En systematisk litteraturstudie om sociala riskfaktorer till våldsbrottslighet bland ungdomar 2017Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studien är en systematisk litteraturöversikt vars syfte är att med utgångspunkt i tidigare forskning, sammanställa och beskriva den forskning som undersöker sociala riskfaktorer till ungdomars våldsbrottslighet. Detta för att skapa en tydlighet över de sociala riskfaktorerna samt att förstå hur sociala riskfaktorer kan ge utfallet våldsbrottslighet bland ungdomar. Totalt har 15 internationella studier av kvantitativ karaktär inkluderats i litteraturöversikten. All data har sammanställts och strukturerats upp i en tabell. Resultatet har därefter tematiserats utifrån dess nyckelfynd i en tematisk analys. För en fördjupad förståelse har resultatet också analyserats utifrån social inlärningsteori och anknytningsteorin. Resultat visar att de mest frekventa sociala riskfaktorerna finns inom familj- och uppväxt, skola- och umgänge och grannskap. Av dessa kategorier har familj och uppväxt framkommit som den mest betydande sociala riskfaktorn till ungdomars våldsbrottslighet, vilket framförallt avser fysiskt och psykiskt våld, försummelse, sexuella övergrepp eller andra brister i omvårdnaden under barndomen. Detta förklaras genom att individer, som under barndomen, vistats i en utsatt miljö tenderar att observera och efterlikna omgivningens beteende och därmed själv utveckla ett normbrytande och våldsamt beteende i ungdomsåren. Sammanfattningsvis har det framkommit att kontextuella förhållanden har en stor inverkan på utvecklandet av ungdomars våldsbrottslighet. Det har också framkommit att riskfaktorer är komplexa och samspelar på olika nivåer och förstärker effekterna av varandra, vilket medför en svårighet att förutse dess utfall.

    Relationsskapande i socialt arbete: Fyra socialarbetares upplevelser av, åsikter om och strategier för att skapa goda relationer till sina klienter vid en daglig verksamhet.2017Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Sammanfattning

    Det övergripande syftet med denna uppsats är att undersöka hur personal på en daglig verksamhet upplever skapandet av relationer med sina klienter på verksamheten, samt vad personalen beskriver som viktigt i och vilka strategier de använder sig av i skapandet av relationer till sina klienter. I studien genomförs fyra intervjuer med personal på en dagligverksamhet. Resultatet analyserades och strukturerades upp med ett hermeneutiskt förhållningssätt och kvalitativ innehållsanalys, samt belystes därefter utifrån tidigare forskning och teorier i Emotionell Intelligens, att "använda sig själv", Mentalisering och Anknytningsteori. Resultatet visar att personalen uppfattar relationen som en självklar del av deras arbete och en viktig del för utförandet av verksamheten. Relationen bidrar med trygghet, tillit och förtroende hos klienterna, som resultatet visar, utgör vitala delar för att en relation ska kunna skapas. Till hjälp i relationsskapandet använder sig personalen av sig själv som verktyg, personliga egenskaper, professionell arbetslivserfarenhet och individuellt erhållen kunskap kring varje klient. Resultatet bekräftar den forskning och de teorier som användes i studien. I relationskapande krävs det att socialarbetaren är empatisk, har en reflekterande förmåga kring sig själv, sina egna och klienters känslor, samt förmåga att kunna identifiera känslors ursprung och reglera dessa hos sig själv och i sina klienter

    Abstract [en]

    The present study examined differences regarding sentencing outcomes and how legal factors are valued for men and women who committed the same crime in Sweden. A questionnaire with a fictitious assault case, where the perpetrator's gender was manipulated between the two versions of the questionnaire was completed by 220 participants, consisting of judges (n = 68), the Swedish counterpart of a jury (n = 61) and law students (n = 91) from 12 different regions in Sweden. The main result showed that men were recommended significantly longer sentences than women, with a difference of 1.5 years of imprisonment. The result indicated that whether a man or woman handed down a sentence recommendation, the recommendations did not differ and there were no interaction effects between the participant’s gender and the gender of the perpetrator. The result further showed that a female perpetrator is valued significantly lower on legal factors than males. The result is discussed in view of previous research and theory, and emphasizes the importance of working actively towards a completely objective judicial judgment in order to prevent crime, as longer prison sentences result in a greater propensity to recidivism.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to examine high school students´ attitudes towards immigration. Several factors that may influence the attitudes were presented, including gender, national origin and experiences of different cultures. The study was conducted in a small town in central Sweden. A total of 195 students participated in the survey and four follow-up interviews were conducted. Concepts such as attitudes, immigrants and social distance are central to the theoretical understanding of this study. The results have been analysed using theoretical frameworks such as symbolic interactionism and stigmatization. The theoretical foundations have assisted our understanding of how immigrants are assigned negative characteristics and the discrimination against them. Previous research and studies have been used in designing this study, as well as to compare results and thus being able to see changes over time. A conclusion that has been drawn from this study is that negative attitudes towards immigration are often based on a fear of change and that immigrants are regarded as social burdens, a threat and an increased competition for tangible assets. The most important underlying factor to negative attitudes towards immigration is class affiliation where knowledge and education has central influence. Experiences of cultures other than ones own also increase tolerance concerning immigration. Compared to previous studies results show that, generally, positive attitudes toward immigrants increases, although there are still some extremely negative attitudes. Young people need to be given possibility to discuss these issues. The fields of social work as well as education are faced with the challenge to allow open discussion based on fundamental democratic values to increase tolerance towards minorities.

    Barnaga - unga vuxnas attityder2012Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to examine young adults', 18-19 years old, attitudes towards corporal punishment and with the help of social constructionism, grid-group theory and relevant concepts analyze the results and compare it with previous research. The research questions introduce various factors such as gender, origin and personal experiences of corporal punishment that may affect the attitudes. In order to fulfill the purpose and answer the research questions, a quantitative research method has been selected. There was 118 participants in the survey. The study was conducted by means of surveys in high schools in Örebro. Social constructionism made us realize how the community, perceptions and expectations might influence attitudes. Grid-group theory gave us an insight into how different family structures may explain why attitudes toward corporal punishment of children differ between individuals. One of the conclusions of this study is that the long-term trend of decreasing positive attitudes toward corporal punishment seems to continue. Results show that all of 41, 2% of young adults in our study, with parents born outside the Nordic countries, have been subjected to corporal punishment. Personal experiences and parents' origin has been shown to have effects on attitudes towards corporal punishment. Different family structures and attitudes towards child rearing may be important to understand and take into consideration in social work. The study shows that corporal punishment still exists, which makes the topic worth of attention and we recommend it to be studied further.

    Abstract [en]

    The “alternative life” can be described as a counter movement to the urban society, increased consummation and a stressful lifestyle. The aim of this qualitative study is to examine the alternative life on the countryside. Six informants were interviewed about their experiences and views about the alternative life. The data is transcribed and analyzed with an inductive, thematic approach. The informants want to live with more simplicity, intimate with their basic needs, live close to nature, reducing less important things in life, challenging themselves and having more time for things they find meaningful. The informants experience more quality in life and presence in the moment through reduction. The main reasons for the informants to live an “alternative life” are the combination of individual factors and a desire to live more environmentally friendly. The results have been analyzed from behavioral theory, existential psychology and Antovskys “Sense of Coherence”.
