Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna litteraturstudie var att sammanställa och analysera existerande forskning kring anknytningsmönster mellan familjehemsplacerade barn och deras biologiska föräldrar samt dess konsekvenser för barnens psykiska hälsa. Studiens empiri utgick från tidigare publicerad forskning som analyserades med hjälp av anknytningsteorin och utvecklingspsykopatologin. Studiens huvudsakliga resultat visade att flera familjehemsplacerade barn saknar eller har en dålig kontakt med sina biologiska föräldrar. Många barn klarar sig dock bra som tonåringar och vuxna, något som kan förklaras med hjälp av olika skyddsfaktorer. De viktigaste slutsatserna visade att familjehemsplacerade barn har större risk för en negativ hälsoutveckling på grund av de separationer och ofta traumatiska händelser de gått igenom i sin uppväxt. En viktig slutsats är att en stabil och trygg skolmiljö, trygga anknytningar till de biologiska föräldrarna, familjehemsföräldrarna eller annan betydande vuxen, kan utgöra en skyddande effekt och minska risken för psykisk ohälsa.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this literature study was to compile and analyze excising research about attachment patterns between placed children and their biological parents and its impact on the child ́s mental health. The empirical data was based on previously published research that was analyzed using attachment theory and developmental psychopathology. The study’s main result showed that many foster children lack or have poor contact with their biological parents. However, many children manage well as adolescents and adults, which can be explained with the help ofprotective factors. The main conclusions showed that placed children have an increased risk of negative health development due to the separations and often traumatic events they have undergone in their upbringing. An important conclusion is that a stable and safe school environment, secure attachments to the biological parents, foster parents or another important adult, can be a protective effect and reduce the risk of mental health.
