Abstract [sv]

Få studier har utforskat feministiska förhållningssätt i psykoterapi. Denna studie avsåg att undersöka hur det går att integrera ett feministiskt perspektiv i kognitiv beteendeterapi (KBT). Sex semistrukturerade intervjuer genomfördes med legitimerade psykologer som arbetar med KBT och som identifierar sig som feminister. Studien hade en abduktiv ansats och materialet analyserades med tematisk analys. Analysen utmynnade i fyra huvudteman: Ifrågasättande och omförhandling av psykologens yrkesroll, Feminism möjliggör att vara kompetent behandlare, Feminism som källa till fritkion samt Besvärade, ambivalenta och obesvärade subjektspositioner. Resultatet visade att informanterna integrerade feminism i KBT genom att ifrågasätta och omförhandla yrkesrollen och arbetsmetoderna, samt genom att tillämpa en strukturell förklaringsmodell. De beskrev att feminism möjliggjorde att vara kompetenta behandlare, men att det också var en källa till friktion. Vidare framkom att de upplevde olika subjektspositioner som bekväma, obekväma eller ambivalenta. Resultatet tolkas som att feminism var till gagn för informanterna och för deras möjlighet att bistå med god vård. 

Abstract [en]

Few studies have researched feminist approaches in psychotherapy. The aim of this study was to explore the possibilities of integrating a feminist perspective in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Six semi-structured interviews with licensed psychologists who worked with CBT and identified themselves as feminists were performed. The study was made with an abductive approach and the data was analyzed with thematic analysis. The analysis resulted in four main themes: Questioning and re-negotiation of the work role, Feminism enables being a competent caregiver, Feminism as a source to friction, and Troubled, ambivalent and untroubled subject positions. Results showed that the interviewees integrated feminism into CBT by questioning and re-negotiating their work role and work methods, as well as adopting a structural model of explanation. They stated that feminism helped them become more competent caregivers, but also that it was a source of friction. In the interviewees’ stories troubled, ambivalent and untroubled subject positions emerged. The results are interpreted as the interviewees experiencing feminism as beneficial for providing good health care.
