Abstract [en]

The subject of this study is compulsory treatment of young people in Sweden and encompasses six qualitative interviews with LVU-placed youths at Hassealkollektivet. Many reports on motivation during treatment explains the importance of motivation rather than how motivation is found. Motivation in compulsory treatment of young people and what young people themselves think about it has often been omitted in literature and science. The purpose of this study has therefore been to explore how young people at Hasselakollektivet describes how it is to be placed under compulsion (LVU) and how they reason about opportunities to motivation during treatment. The results show that young people have a predominantly negative view of LVU and their own placement. Several youths explain that they could have been dead if they weren't placed at Hasselakollektivet which makes the overall negative view difficult to interpret. It is furthermore in the analysis, through motivation theory, found that the compulsion can have a negative affect on the motivation. The compulsion however can also allow conditions for motivation to appear. The study shows that motivation during compulsory treatment can be influenced by the staff, the other youths and the everyday routines.
