Abstract [sv]

Abstrakt

Studiens syfte var att studera individers upplevelser och erfarenheter av familjehemsplacering. Studiens frågeställningar: Hur beskriver individer socialtjänstens roll i samband med placeringen? Hur beskriver individer familjehemmets roll? Hur beskriver individer placeringens inverkan på levnadsvillkoren? För att besvara frågeställningarna tillämpades en kvalitativ metod där semistrukturerade intervjuer genomfördes med fyra individer som under uppväxten varit familjehemsplacerade. Studiens resultat visar att familjehemsplacering har en positiv inverkan på individers levnadsvillkor, men att det likväl finns tillkortakommanden. Genom redan gjorda samhälleliga förändringar och med den nya lagändringen som är under övervägande, så kommer på ett tydligare sätt barn/ungdomar som är i särskilt behov av stöd att synliggöras. Studien visar att ett tydligare barnperspektiv, bredare samarbete med andra aktörer samt en mer holistisk syn på familjehemsvården kommer att stärka barnets utvecklingsmöjligheter och möjliggöra en trygg uppväxt. Analysverktygen var Bronfenbrenners utvecklingsekologiska modell samt Antonovskys KASAM. Resultatet ligger i linje med tidigare forskning.

Abstract

The study aimed to examine individual’s experiences of foster home. Questions were: How does the individual describe Social Services' role in connection with the placement? How does the individual describe the role of the foster home? How does the individual describe the placements impact on the living conditions? To answer those questions a qualitative approachwas applied in which semi-structured interviews were conducted with four individual’s who in their childhood were placed in foster homes. The study shows that foster home placements has a positive impact on individuals' lives, but there are still some shortcomings. By the already-made changes in society and with the new change in legislation under consideration, will more clearly show the children/young people who are in special need of support and make them more visible. Our results shows that a clearer perspective of children, broader cooperation with other actors and a more holistic approach to foster care will enhance children's development and enable a secure childhood. Analysis tools were Bronfenbrenners developing ecological model and Antonovskys SOC. This outcome is consistent with previous research.
