Abstract [sv]

Tidigare forskning gällande barn som vuxit upp med föräldrar med psykisk sjukdom/ohälsa eller missbruksproblematik har till stor del fokuserat på negativa aspekter. Syftet med denna studie var att genom fyra självbiografier undersöka individuella faktorer som kan bidra till en positiv utveckling, hos barn som vuxit upp med någon vuxen med psykisk sjukdom och/eller alkoholmissbruk. Studiens frågeställningar rörde vilka individuella egenskaper som bidragit till välmående i vuxenlivet, om några av dessa är gemensamma mellan författarna samt minnen från barndomen som kan relateras till anknytning. Studiens teoretiska grund bestod av anknytningsteori samt resiliens, för att undersöka anknytningens betydelse för dessa barn samt hur motståndskraft kan utvecklas hos dessa barn enligt teori och forskning. Studiens resultat visade på flertalet individuella och gemensamma faktorer hos författarna samt de minnen som kunde relateras till anknytning. Resultatet analyserades genom tematisk analys, vilket härledde 4 teman: skyddsnät, anknytning, individens karaktär samt strategier för att överleva.

Abstract [en]

Previous research about children who have grown up with parents with mental illness and/or abuse has largely focused on negative aspects. The aim of this study was to through four autobiographies, examine individual factors that can contribute to a positive development, in children who have grown up with any adult with mental illness and / or alcohol abuse. The questions of the study concerned which individual characteristics contributed to well-being in adulthood, if some of these are common between the authors and memories of childhood that can be related to attachment. The theoretical foundation of the study consisted of attachment theory and resilience, in order to investigate the importance of the attachment for the children and how resistance can be developed in these children according to theory and research. The results of the study showed the majority of individual and common factors among the authors and the memories that could be related to the connection. The results were analyzed by thematic analysis, which derived 4 themes: safety net, connection, individual character and strategies for survival.
