The role as a father in focus : A qualitative social psychological study of mens experiences of the role as a father (English)
Abstract [sv]

Det svenska samhället präglas av en jämställdhetsdebatt där regeringen genom sociopolitiska åtgärder aktivt arbetar med att jämställa kvinnor och män. Det har skett förändringar i hur faderskapet och pappans roll framställs i samhället vilket resulterar i nya attribut på rollen som pappa. Denna studie syftar till att beskriva och skapa förståelse för mäns upplevelser av rollen som pappa. Studien är av kvalitativ ansats och genomförd med hjälp av tio semistrukturerade intervjuer. Teoretiska utgångspunkter är rolltagande och socialisation, normer köns- och genusroller samt rollkonflikt. Urvalsgruppen består av män som blivit pappor efter senaste revideringen i föräldraförsäkringslagen 2016-01-01 och är sammanboende med barnets mamma. Datan analyserades med hjälp av fenomenologisk analys. Resultatet visade att männen upplevde rollen som pappa präglad av ansvar, delaktighet och jämställd med den andre föräldern. Männen upplevde att det tog tid att socialiseras in i rollen som pappa där den sociala omgivningen och normer samt den egna pappans antagande av rollen som pappa påverkade. Männen upplevde att traditionella könsroller allt mer suddas ut vilket resulterade i förändrade attityder från omgivningen där främst arbetsgivarens stödjande förhållningssätt beskrevs uppmuntrande till att ta ut föräldraledighet.
