Abstract [sv]

Följande studie hade som syfte att undersöka studentterapeuters känsloupplevelser i samtal med utbildningsklienter om existentiella teman. Studien grundade sig i semistrukturerade intervjuer med sex studentterapeuter på ett psykologprogram i Sverige. Intervjuerna analyserades med hjälp av abduktiv tematisk analys. Analysen grundade sig i huvudteman upplevda affekter, terapeutens affektmedvetenhet, härbärgering av affekter, terapeutens arbete med affekter och det existentiella samtalets påverkan. Resultaten visade på att en lägre medvetenhet om affekter och existentiella funderingar försvårade härbärgeringen av och det terapeutiska arbetet med affekterna, vilket ledde till missade möjligheter i terapin. Studentterapeuternas affektmedvetenhet kunde ökas genom självreflektion och erfarenhet.  Resultatet stämmer överens med tidigare forskning som säger att noviser på området har stort fokus på sin prestation och uppmärksammar därför i lägre utsträckning affekterna i rummet.

Abstract [en]

The following study aims to examine the emotional experiences of trainee therapists when talking about existential issues with their clients. The study was based on semi-structured interviews with six trainee therapists all of whom were doing a major in psychology at a Swedish university. The interviews were analysed by abductive thematic analysis. The analysis was based on the themes experienced affects, therapists’ affect consciousness, containing of the affects, the therapist’s work with the affects and the influence of conversation about existential issues. The results showed that a lower affect consciousness and a lower consciousness about one’s existential standings made it more difficult for the trainees to contain the affects and to work with them, which lead to missed opportunities in therapy. The trainees’ affect consciousness increased with self-reflection and experiences. The results are in line with earlier research which shows that inexperienced therapists are focusing too much on their performance and pay therefore less attention to the affects in the room.
