Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study is to depict the exit-process out of the religious group Jehovah's Witnesses, and compare nine informants narratives about the exit-process with three other models that´s been constructed over the exit-process from religious groups and compare and discuss the informants narratives about the exit-process with each other. The result of the study shows that the informants narratives about their exit-process shows some resemblance with the models about the exit-process that the authors Pernilla Liedgren Dobronravoff and Norman Skonovd has developed, and some lesser resemblance with the model about the exit-process that author Stuart Wright has developed. It is also important to point out that the informants narratives do not strengthen any of the models about the exit-process enough to call them complete, because of the differences that shows up in the informants narratives abouth their exit-processes from Jehovah´s Witnesses. The narratives of the informants exit-processes differ from each othertoo, mainly about the length of the exit-process, and the feelings that they feel during the exit-process. The conclusion that can be drawn from this study about the exit-process from the organization Jehovah´s Witnesses is that the exit-process seems to be very individual, although the informants narratives shows some resemblance in their exit-process, mainly about doubts throughout the exit-process, "the turning points", and the lack of support from the "original family" during the exit-process.
