”The truth will set you free” : A qualitative study about priests meeting people in custody and prisons in Sweden (English)
Abstract [sv]

Föreliggande studie undersökte häktes/fängelseprästers upplevelse av förändring hos de frihetsberövade, vilka de mötte i sin tjänst på häkten och fängelser. Studien bygger på kvalitativa semistrukturerade intervjuer med fem präster i Svenska kyrkan. Intervjuerna genomfördes sommaren 2019. I studien framkommer det att alla intervjuade upplevde att förändringar sker hos de frihetsberövade. Det handlar om att kunna bryta destruktiva mönster och göra förändringar för ett bättre och friare liv. Vägen till denna förändring går genom samtal, gudstjänster och meditationer tillsammans med de själavårdande samtalen. Oväntat visar studien även på de förändringar som skedde hos prästerna själva där de beskriver sin upplevelse av djupare andlighet och stor meningsfullhet. Resultatet av studien visar att prästerna upplevde att de allra flesta frihetsberövade, har en stark önskan om ett icke kriminellt liv och att vägen dit kan gå genom fler och mer bestående möten och band till ett socialt accepterat sammanhang.

Abstract [en]

This current study investigated priests, in the church of Sweden, working in custody and/or prison. Do priests experience any change in the prisoners’ lives during the time they are held in prison? The qualitative study consists of semi structured interviews with five priests. They were interviewed during summer 2019. The study shows that all of the priests experienced that many of the prisoners changed attitudes concerning their lives and their situation. They expressed the desire of another kind of life. Unexpectedly the study also shows the change the priests undertook, working with the prisoners. The priests expressed feelings about deeper spirituality and a sense of rich meaningfulness. The study shows that the priests experienced that almost all of the prisoners had a strong wish of living a non-criminal life. The road to this life is the one which consists of many new and constant contacts with a socially accepted environment.
