Children at an orphanage in Ghana : the importance of the attitude of the staff (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to create knowledge and obtain an understanding of the importance of the staff’s attitude and their way of meeting the emotional needs of the children who were living at the orphanage. The study also aimed to investigate how and to what extent the children receive help from the staff to achieve self-fulfillment and reach their dreams.

Qualitative method was used and four individual (semi-structured) interviews were conducted. The analysis was done based on previous research in the area and Maslows hierarchy of needs. The result shows that the staff believes it is of great importance that there should be someone who listens to the children. If there is someone who listens to the children, they get a chance to process any traumatic events they might have experienced and develop hope of reaching their dreams.

The conclusion of the study is that the attitude of the staff is very important for the children's well-being and development.
