Abstract [en]

The aim of the essay was to see how the respondents reasoned about different themes like, isolation, integration and barriers to integration, given that they had all been diagnosed with a psychosis diagnosis. The essay takes part of secondary data that had been gathered through interviews by researchers at the department of Research and Development Psychiatric South Stockholm during a 3 year period. To work with the interview data a qualitative interview analysis method was used. The interviews were analyzed against theories of social interaction, labeling, stigma and the theory of ”role exit”. The analysis showed that to be given a psychosis diagnosis is an indicator that one will be isolated from society in terms of work, economy and social relations. A more surprising find of this essay was that even though one is viewed as isolated in terms of the points given above, it does not mean that one necessarily want to strive for a full integration again. One possible interpretation of this find is that one thinks that one is more well off in the current situation than in an integrated situation.
