Självbestämmande mer eller mindre: En kvalitativ studie om utvecklingstördas självbestämmande ur ett personalperspektiv
Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The aim of this essay is to problematize the role of living support in a group home and to examine staff reflections about the users' opportunities for and possibly limits to self determination and, in addition to this, how they work towards supporting this right. The study is conducted through seven semi-structured qualitative interviews. The theoretical points of departure are theories of empowerment and paternalism. We have analysed the study results from the vantage point of these theories. The results are consistent with earlier research showing lack of guidance for supporters and also a lack of common approach towards users.
