Abstract [en]

In 2007 the Prevention Unit at Södermalm in Stockholm started a group activity for parents and children. The group activity’s intention is to offer families support in their early interaction. This study is a part of providing knowledge about this intervention. The purpose of this study is to describe and analyze the stories which are produced by five participants in a support group for parents and children. This is a narrative study and the collection of material has been done through five qualitative interviews. As a theoretical basis narrative theory has been used. The result shows that the group in different ways influenced several of the mothers. The group leaders and the group members have had a strengthening function for the mothers where sharing experiences with others is central. The participants have - or are about to find their independence and the majority feel affirmed in their parental role. By being a part of the group the mothers have improved their contact with - and understanding of their child. These are circumstances that can improve the interaction between parents and children.
