Abstract [sv]

Forskning har visat att behandlares förståelse för affekter är viktigt i arbete med patienter med psykisk ohälsa. Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka behandlares berättelser om hur de uppmärksammade, påverkades av och kunde använda sig av sina egna och patienternas affekter i arbetet med gruppbehandlingsmetoden Affektskola. Semistrukturerade intervjuer genomfördes med sex behandlare som arbetade med metoden. Intervjuerna analyserades med tematisk analys utifrån en abduktiv ansats. Analysen resulterade i tre huvudteman, Behandlare med känsla för affekter, Affektsmitta i arbetet och Utmanande affekter, med åtföljande underteman. Resultaten visade att det för behandlarna upplevdes viktigt att vara medveten om och öppet uttrycka sina egna affekter för att kunna visa för patienterna hur affekter kan uttryckas. De beskrev att de smittades av patienternas affekter och därigenom kunde hjälpa dem att urskilja olika affekter. Behandlarna beskrev svårigheter med att skilja mellan sina egna och patienternas affekter, samt att arbeta med affekterna skam och glädje. Sammantaget tydde resultaten på att behandlarna hade hög affektmedvetenhet samt förmåga att arbeta med sina egna och patienternas affekter.

Abstract [en]

Research has shown that therapists’ understanding of affects is important when working with patients who suffer from mental illness. This study examined how therapists attended to, was affected by and used their own and their patients affects when working with the group treatment Affect school. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with six therapists who all worked with this treatment. The interviews were analysed using thematic analysis with an abductive approach. The analysis resulted in three themes, Therapists with knowledge of affects, Working with emotional contagion and Challenging affects, containing sub-themes. The results showed that the therapists thought it was important to be aware of and openly express their own affects to be able to show patients how affects can be expressed. They reported that they were affected by emotional contagion, which could be used to help patients distinguish between different affects. The therapists expressed difficulties with differentiating between their own and their patients’ affects, and working with the affects shame and joy. The results indicated altogether that the therapists had high levels of affect consciousness and an ability to work with their own and their patients’ affects.
