    Anorexia Nervosa: Friskförklarade kvinnors upplevelser kring orsaksfaktorer för insjuknande2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Anorexia is a global issue but occurs mainly in the Western world. Anorexia nervosa is a complex disease caused by biological, psychological, and sociocultural factors which often interacts with each other. The purpose of this phenomenological study is to gain a greater understanding of how recovered women created meaning in their illness and if there are mutual factors in their life-stories. We have especially focused on family patterns and the communication within the family. We have based our study on symbolic interactionism as our theoretical perspective. The study is of a qualitative nature and we used semi structured interviews which later were interpreted from a hermeneutic phenomenological approach. In our result we could see that creating meaning was central throughout the disease and was expressed in different ways by our respondents. Ten themes appeared and the most vital findings were that anorexia was an active action and that it is an expression for self-hatred and low self-esteem. We could also see that lack of expression regarding emotions within the families and not being emotionally recognized by their parents were crucial factors. The most important result was the respondents own perception of anorexia as a symbolizing action and the content of the disease is about so much more than weight and looks.

    Attityder kring etnicitet hos anställda på socialtjänsten & dess påverkan på mötet med klienter2022Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Attitudes and prejudice about ethnicity is a phenomenon that occurs in many different contexts. When working with people, attitudes about ethnicity is essential for how the workplace is experienced, both for the employees and clients. The work-life in Sweden consists of employees with different backgrounds and ethnicities. Norms about ethnicity create obstacles to achieve equality and the risk of ethnic discrimination enhances. The issue can be complex and requires employees to critically examine themselves and their colleagues. Experiences of attitudes depends on several individual factors, therefore they may differ in different workplaces. The purpose of this qualitative study was to investigate attitudes about ethnicity among Social Services' employees and how the attitudes affect the work with clients. With a social psychological approach, this study was conducted based on theories of social cognition theory, attitudes, social attribution theory and ethnicity, we and them-thinking & indirect discrimination. The essay contains ten semi-structured interviews with social workers in three different municipalities. The results show that it exists negative attitudes about ethnicity in the social services, both between employees and clients. How attitudes appear in the work is affected by several different factors such as experience, awareness of negative attitudes and open dialogues between employees. Whilst working with clients, the influence of attitudes has a basis in the employees´ level of understanding, treatment and ability to maintain the professional role.

    Tryggheten som stressar - stress och stresshantering bland unga vuxna - tidigare ensamkommande barn med rötter i Afghanistan2021Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Individuals who have come to Sweden as unaccompanied refugee minors meet different difficulties. In previous research, the main focal points have been the unaccompanied minors' previous experiences of violence and war, and the importance of social support. The aims of this study were firstly to gain a greater understanding regarding stress and stress management among unaccompanied refugee minors, and secondly, to look at the importance of social relationships regarding stress management. This qualitative study is based upon ten semi-structured interviews. Ten young adults gave their subjective narrative. The interviewees had their roots in Afghanistan. They all came to Sweden as unaccompanied refugee minors. The interview was analyzed based on Bronfenbrenner´s Ecological systems theory and Lazarus stress theory, using thematic analysis. The results drawn were that unaccompanied refugee minors experience stress because of a) expressed and perceived demands from the family, b) for the family's situation in the home country, c) the oral interaction with ethnical Swedes, d) be able to find work, and e) not recognizing the physical environment. The result regarding stress management shows that social relations, help from professional contacts, and their own personality were of importance for the study participants. Furthermore, the results show that being able to work and to educate themselves were important stress management strategies. Friends from the homeland and the mother tongue were sources of comfort for the participants.

    Motgångarna är min drivkraft: Unga svensk-somaliska högskolestudenters beskrivning av identitetsskapande och meningsfullhet2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In the media in the recent years, a negative picture of young Somali-Swedes has emerged, among other things linked to gang crime. It also affects the young Somali-Swedes who have not gone astray. As a contrast to those who ended up in crime, unemployment and exclusion, Somali-Swedish university students are highlighted in this study. The aim was to create an understanding of their identity formation and experience of meaningfulness and how it affects their well-being. The study was based on a social psychological perspective and has been analyzed with the help of the theories Sense of Coherence (SOC) and Social Identity Theory (SIT) as well as the concepts of ethnicity, in-betweenness and dual cultural belonging. The method was qualitative and qualitative semi-structured interviews were conducted with ten respondents. The respondents were university students of Somali-Swedish origin aged 21-24. The results showed that ethnicity, religious affiliation, family, friends and participation in civic society were important in the formation of identity. Religion, family and sense of purpose were described as important elements in creating meaning. In addition, it was common that adversity and negative treatment were turned into a source of motivation. The factors of success for well-being that were found were community, social support, faith, purposefulness and turning adversity into motivation.

    Varför stannade jag: En studie om våldsutsatta kvinnors självbild och självkänsla2021Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Violence in close relationships is a current and serious problem that affects both the victim and society negatively. This type of violence is often perpetrated by men against women. The number of calls to Sweden's women shelters has increased and there is also a supposed high number of women that doesn’t report their situation. The violence can be of both psychological and physical nature. Living in a destructive relationship can have drastic consequences for the victim's psychological well-being. Previous research shows that battered women find it difficult to get out of their relationship. This is a very important topic to study for these very reasons. A qualitative research method was conducted in this study. 10 women who have lived in a destructive relationship were interviewed. The result was analyzed with a thematic analysis. The purpose of the study was to investigate battered women’s experiences, in regards to how their self-image and self-esteem have changed. Theories regarding power and social support have also been used in order to analyze their social context. The results showed that the women experienced a negative self-image and self-esteem during and after the relationship. The power relationship was asymmetric, which also affected their self-image and self-esteem. Social support was perceived as important for rebuilding their self-image and self-esteem.

    ”Det var en del av min identitet, utan den visste jag inte vem jag var”: En kvalitativ studie om hur stödinsatser, stämpling och stigma påverkat före detta kriminella mäns identitetsformande2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Over a short period of time, crime in Sweden has increased and become a serious and publicized social problem. It is a complex process to leave a criminal environment that can often involve a number of different challenges. Cohesion and social ties formed in criminal environments can delay the process of leaving due to a strong identification with the group. Support and efforts by society are important for an individual to be able to change his identity as a criminal. The purpose of this qualitative study was to investigate subjective experiences of how stigmatization, labeling processes and support efforts affected the exit process in the development to a non-criminal identity. The starting point for studies was a social psychological approach that was studied through theories of social identity, stigmatization, labeling and exit process. Ten respondents from the dropout activity Criminal Revenge in Society (KRIS) participated in studies and interviews using semi-structured interviews. The results showed that KRIS's support efforts have a positive impact on the development of a non-criminal identity by contributing to a feeling of support and acceptance. The respondents who had not made a geographical separation experienced labeling and stigma in a larger sense. Stamping processes and stigmatization were found to have a negative impact on the development to a non-criminal identity in the exit process. The membership of KRIS has functioned as a protected environment from labeling and stigmatization that facilitates identity formation in the exit process.

    En lyckad sysselsättning efter fängelset: En kvalitativ studie om hur den upplevda självförmågan bidragit till en lyckad sysselsättning efter fängelset2021Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    After serving a prison sentence, an individual may experience social and economic exclusion, which further increases the risk of recidivism. Although it is expected that such individuals should be able to support themselves after serving a prison sentence, the study highlights the fact that they may encounter several obstacles in their attempt to obtain legal employment. The research questions concerned the sources of information that contribute to the individual's perceived self-efficacy. The purpose of this study is to gain an understanding of how an individual’s perceived self-efficacy affects her/his opportunities to obtain legal employment after serving a prison sentence for drug offenses. A social psychological perspective was chosen, which was studied with the help of Albert Bandura's theory. This qualitative study is based on semi-structured interviews with eight individuals who served prison sentences for drug offenses and managed to find legal employment afterwards. The collected empirical data were processed by means of thematic analysis. The results showed that perceived self-efficacy had both a positive and a negative effect on the possibility of obtaining legal employment after serving a prison sentence. All respondents stated that the motivation derived from family, acquaintance or partner support was the key to a successful transition. Society's anti-support/ in the form of criminal record as well as lack of work experience and a driving license reduced the possibility of obtaining legal employment

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to understand experiences regarding parental separation from a child’s perspective and the significance for adult life. Based on a qualitative method, adult children of divorce and their perceived emotions as well as the influence of social identity are studied. This study is based on ten semi-structured interviews with eight women and two men. The results of the study indicate that the child may experience feelings of guilt and abandonment, but also relief. The child’s positive or negative experience of the separation is based on the degree of conflict as well as the parent ́s handling. All informants who state that the separation had an effect on their mental health also experienced a high degree of family conflicts and have a negative experience of the separation. The majority of the informants have experience of conflicts due to the separation.

    Tinder och självkänsla: En kvantitativ studie om Tinder och självkänsla2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study will present the results of a quantitative survey where the aim was to see if Tinder use affects individuals' self-esteem and if the effect is dependent on gender. The data collection was carried out with an online survey via Facebook in which 102 respondents participated (F = 55 and M = 47). The user's estimated time on Tinder was the main variable of Tinder use in this study and the researchers constructed their own questions to control for time frequency. To control for underlying factors in Tinder use, the researchers constructed their own questions to examine profile satisfaction, Tinder satisfaction, happiness after Tinder, right swipes, and matches. Self-esteem was measured by the Rosenberg self-esteem scale. Based on Festinger's theory of social comparison, three questions about social comparison on Tinder were constructed. The result showed that hypotheses 1 Tinder use has a negative effect on men's self-esteem and 2 Tinder use has a positive effect on women's self-esteem are not true, the study could not confirm that the main variable time frequency has an impact on men's and women's self-esteem. The study was able to determine that the profile satisfaction variable has a significant positive impact on men's and women's self-esteem and a gender difference was discovered where men are more strongly affected by profile satisfaction.

    ”En kvalitativ studie om servitrisens självkänsla och emotioner inom restaurangbranschen”2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In the restaurant industry, there are requirements and standards about how a waitress should treat the restaurant's guests. These demands are part of the work role and affect the waitress's emotions and self-esteem, which creates an emotional burden for the waitresses. To alleviate the emotional strain, they use coping strategies to keep their self-esteem in balance and continue working in the profession. The purpose of the study is based on a social psychological perspective to gain a deeper understanding of how social interaction within the restaurant industry affects the waitress's self-esteem and emotions. The study is based on a qualitative method with 10 semi-structured interviews that were conducted at the respondents' workplaces. The theories in the study focused on self-esteem, emotional labor and coping strategies. The study used a thematic analysis to identify patterns and themes in the collected material. The results showed that working as a waitress creates an emotional burden, and affects the waitress's self-esteem. Therefore, waitresses used various coping strategies to manage the emotional burden in the workplace. Some important factors that influence self-esteem and emotions are customer service, feedback from guests and the manager, and working according to professional requirements. The respondents dealt with the negative emotions with the help of social support and they recovered in their free time to find a balance between work life and free time.

    Kopplingen mellan resiliens och stress: En undersökning på första- och andraårsstudenter under distansundervisning2021Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to examine if a student's experience as a student or lack thereof, have an effect on their resilience level. Furthermore if students resilience level affect their stress level while undergoing distance learning. A questionnaire was used consisting of seven control variables and two scales, Brief Resilience Scale (BRS) and Perceived Stress Scale (PSS). The questionnaire was completed by randomly selecting students from a university in Sweden. The sample consisted of 92 individuals that were divided into two university grades (53 first years 39 second years). The results of the study showed that a medium to strong negative relationship existed between the students resilience level and stress level (r = -.34, N = 92). It also showed that there was no significant difference between first-year students' resilience level (M = 3.39, SD =.80) compared to second-year students (M = 3.39, SD = .58). Nor in the stress level for students in their first year (M = 22.11, SD = 10.60) compared to students in their second year (M = 24.95, SD = 11.65). The conclusion of the study emphasizes that despite thel ack of a significant difference between the participants in the study, the need to keep the students stress level and resilience level in mind is important for students' health, when organising distance studies.

    Socialt arv i Socialt arbete: En narrativ studie om socialarbetares erfarenheter och möten med det sociala arvet2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Gustav Jonson's theory of the social heritage characterized social work in Sweden during the 1960s and onwards. The social policy issues debated then were about class society, labelling and alienation. After thirty years of professional work as a social worker, I find it interesting that the work still focuses on the theory of the social heritage and methods for breaking it. The aim of this study is to examine possible explanations to why this is so. The empirical material is taken from interviews with senior social workers. Issues examined are how they perceive social work and the theory of the social heritage. The results of the interviews have been processed based upon narrative analysis and reported in the form of meta-narratives. The stories provide a historical view of social work, encounters, situations and contexts. The final discussion is about how the social heritage is created, identified and carried forward. The conclusions show that the social heritage is a social construction created by the society and its inhabitants.The issue then, is to understand and to relate to this context, creating security control and balance in it. As a phenomenon, the social heritage can come to act as conservation and thus become a counterforce to change. Based on discussion and conclusions, it appears that efforts to break the social heritage are questionable. The study is a social psychological qualitative study worked with from a social constructionist perspective.

    Ackulturationsstrategier: Första och andra generationens invandrare och anpassningen till det nya samhället2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to investigate whether there was a difference between first and second-generation immigrants and how they experienced different acculturation strategies. The structure of the study is structured with a quantitative approach. The key concepts used, which are the foundation of the study, are integration, assimilation, separation and marginalization. Previous research has shown that second-generation immigrants prefer the acculturation strategy integration more than first-generation immigrants. There was a total of 117 respondents where the first generation consisted of 57 respondents and the second generation consisted of 60 respondents. Respondents came from countries spread all over the world and were also resident in cities from all over Sweden. The result is broadly in line with what the previous research said. Second generation immigrants prefer the acculturation strategy integration more than the first generation of immigrants. However, this study showed that this difference was not so great. It was also shown that marginalization is the acculturation strategy that respondents preferred least, no matter what generation they belong to.

    Abstract [en]

    The National Board of Forensic Medicine is a closed institution and an expert authority within the legal system, that includes around 500 employees located in six different locations throughout the country. Every year, about 500 forensic psychiatric examinations are conducted in Sweden. Nursing staff at the National Board of Forensic Medicine deal with individuals daily who come from custody, are mentally unwell and require support. Some of these cases can be very heavy and negative for the well-being of the employees. In their role, the staff must see the person behind the crime and therefore act with loyalty, being trustworthy, and objective, which can be both demanding and difficult. The purpose of the study was to investigate the social well-being of staff at the closed institution National Board of Forensic Medicine. Considering the nature of the institution, the study used a social-psychological approach. Using theoretical frameworks such as Kazemi´s model of social well-being and Goffman's theory of total institutions, the study sought understanding of the problem. Ten semi-structured interviews were conducted with nursing staff at National Board of Forensic Medicine, of which 8 were men and 2 were women. The result showed, among other things, that the staff valued their social relationships highly, both among colleagues and with the inmates. The result also showed that the staff used a range of coping strategies to deal with the specific nature of their work. Furthermore, the result showed that the functioning of the closed institution depended on its security and infrastructure.

    Alltid redo: En fenomenologisk studie om undersköterskors arbetsliv2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Healthcare organizations face great demands as the proportion of the elderly is increasing. Assistant nurses account for the majority of practical patient care and as a result, they are experiencing negative working conditions. As a consequence, the Western region in Sweden especially, is dealing with high levels of sick-leaves. The aim of the present study was therefore to gain a deeper understanding of assistant nurses’ experiences of working conditions. Qualitative phenomenological method together with semi-structured interviews was adopted. Ten assistant nurses in one municipality participated. The interviews were transcribed and coded based on qualitative thematic analysis.

    Three themes and eight thematic categories emerged: Working tasks (practical working tasks, social working tasks, invisible tasks), Organization (formal organization, informal organization, re-organisation), and Well-being (increasing well-being, decreasing wellbeing). The social psychological theories underlying the theoretical part of the analysis were Social Exchange Theory and Group Psychology.

    The result showed that experiences of working conditions to a large extent were connected to social relations, both within the working group and between healthcare providers and care-recipients. Working tasks were less prominent as far as the creation of meaning about what affects well-being within the profession.

    Maskinoperatörers upplevelser av konformitet på ett industriföretag i Sverige2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In today's society, we are often influenced by social norms and conformity. In work contexts it has become common for individuals to conform to other individuals or groups. In organizations and primarily in workplaces employees may try to adapt to prevailing expectations and norms to avoid being excluded from the group. Considering how much time most adults spend in their workplaces it is important to study the work environment and group relationships, especially today as teams and workgroups have grown in popularity. But how does this affect the workplace culture and cohesion among the employees? And what are the consequences of conformity? The purpose of this study was therefore to gain a deeper understanding of machine operators' experiences regarding the consequences of conformity in an industrial company in Sweden. The chosen method used in the study was qualitative semi structured interviews with ten machine operators. The results showed that the groupings that occurred in the workplace could have a negative impact on the machine operators. For example, it could be difficult to create a sense of belonging and a shared work culture. Absent leadership from the team leader was found to have negative effects on inclusion, sense of belonging, and wellbeing among the machine operators. The study revealed that a distance existed between the machine operators and the company's management and that there was a power asymmetry between them.

    Abstract [en]

    In the health and care professions, there is today a high level of sick leave that contributes to an increased risk of sickness pension, at the same time there is also a shortage of staff in these professions. A contributing factor to these problems is that workers have a strained work environment. In order to achieve a better working environment, it is important to understand what employees perceive as problematic. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to examine, from a social psychological perspective, how employees in the care and nursing professions experience their work environment and how it affects the conditions for a sustainable working life. The study is based on a qualitative method in which 10 semi-structured interviews were conducted. The theories in the study focus on physical, mental, emotional and social factors that can affect an employee's work environment and conditions for a sustainable working life. Using a thematic analysis, patterns and themes were identified in the collected material. The results showed that good leadership and employeeship, and perceived workload were decisive for whether employees experienced a good or bad work environment and whether they chose to stay or leave the profession. Some important factors were social support, fair wages, experienced and competent employees, a balance between work and leisure and that there were resources to perform a good job.

    “Spelar vi tillsammans så tänker jag att det här kan nog gå bra men spelar jag själv så det här kan ju gå åt alla håll och kanter”:: En kvalitativ studie om sociala interaktioner, roller och affektiva reaktioner inom gaming i etablerade samt icke-etablerade lag2022Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The phenomenon of gaming is continuously expanding and currently includes an approximate of 2,5 to 3,25 billion gamers worldwide. A central concept of gaming is competition which has then evolved into e-sport. Previous research of gaming tend to focus on the negative aspects of the phenomenon. Considering, however, that the view of a gamer has changed during recent times where gaming has previously been seen as a hobby for the socially excluded for now to be classified as official athletes, for instance in the USA (Svenska e-sportförbundet, 2021), there is a need to conduct research looking at the positive aspects of gaming.The purpose of this study was to compare the social interactions, roles and affective reactions between established and non-established e-sports teams. This was investigated on the basis of the social psychological theories social interaction, cooperative behavior, roles and role-taking, teamwork and affect theory of social exchange. Two focus groups and four semi-structured interviews with a total of twelve participants were conducted on a sample where the focus groups were established teams and the respondents to the semi-structured interviews belonged to non-established teams.The results of the study show that social interactions, roles and affective reactions in established teams tend to be more open, consistent and positive overall. This is most likely due to the previous relationships and knowledge of each other that exists in established teams, something that the non-established teams lack.

    Vänskap och kultur: En kvalitativ  studie om immigranters upplevelse av deras ackulturationsprocess med fokus på etniska vänskapsrelationer2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to obtain a deeper understanding for how immigrants who migrated from Chile and Bosnia and Herzegovina and are residing in Sweden, experience their acculturation process in relation to their friendship relations’ ethnical background. The research focuses on immigrants’ subjective experience of their own acculturation process which is then analyzed with social psychological theories including Social exchange theory, Acculturation and Symbolic interactionism, together with concepts belonging to these theories. Through semi structured interviews, a result emerged which shows that the experienced acculturation has an influence on whom one chooses to establish a friendship relation with. The result shows that immigrants whos acculturation indicates towards integration in the host country tend to develop friendship ties with people of the ethnical majority population. Acculturation made clear in a feeling of separation and marginalization results in that the immigrant solely turns to friends belonging of the own ethnical country of birth. Furthermore, the result shows that language is the most contributory factor for integration, followed by work and schooling in the host country as other important contributory factors.

    Maskrosbarn: Vuxna maskrosbarns identitet och välbefinnande2022Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Despite the fact that 500 000 children grow up with at least one parent who suffers from some form of mental illness, abuse or who exposes them to violence, there is still a lack of knowledge about how this affects the individual in adulthood. The purpose of this study is therefore to create an understanding of how the conditions of growth have contributed to creating the identity of dandelion children and how it has affected the individual's well-being with emphasis on the level of subjective well-being, in adulthood. Through a qualitative interview study, the individuals were given space to tell their own story about what it was like to grow up in a dysfunctional family and its impact on adult life. Through a social psychological approach, this phenomenon is studied on the basis of theories of well-being, Sense of coherence (SOC), resilience, stigma and identity. The study involved 10 women who identify themselves as dandelion children. The results suggest that unfavorable conditions during adolescence affect both identity creation and well-being. This is expressed by the fact that these individuals claim to possess distinct characteristics that are perceived to be a direct effect of traumatic experiences during childhood. A majority of these individuals also have a distinct need for predictability in daily life to achieve well-being.

    Kärleken som förlorade: En kvalitativ socialpsykologisk studie om avslutade kärleksrelationer2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Every individual have a basic proximity need that can only be fulfilled through long lasting relationships, despite this proximity need it is very common with dissolutions of relationships in today’s society. It has also been proven that cohabiting couples in Sweden separate to a large extent. Present study applies a qualitative, phenomenological approach with the purpose to create an understanding of what experiences individuals who have ended a cohabiting relationship have about how the social exchanges between the partners was expressed and affected the relationship. With social exchange theory, social resource theory and equity theory as theoretical framework, ten respondents who have separated from a cohabiting relationship were interviewed. The results show that the respondents were, in the aspects of time, perceived to be out of priority and that the time spent together was found to be without quality. In the aspects of love, the respondents felt that it was important to express love through symbolic gestures, but that it was not expressed enough in the relationship. The respondents also felt underprivileged in the aspects of time and love because of the experience of giving more in both aspects than what was given in return.

    Aspects of Identification in Computer Gaming2008In: Human IT, ISSN 1402-1501, E-ISSN 1402-151X, Vol. 9, no 3, p. 37-61Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This article relates computer gaming to the social psychology of identity, focusing the notion that identity construction has a reflected character not only in virtual reality but also in real life. This gives a tight correspondence between the two, although the screen construction of identity goes on in greater independence of real other persons. Gaming has the trait that it contracts several events at one point in space and time. This provides for two extremes of identification: functional and existential identification, which are tightly coupled in gaming, but also for the element of meaning creation in gaming, where the step from concrete action to mental act is short, as well as for the processes of anticipatory identification that are found in it. This gives a high emotional intensity to it. The analysis is based on a theoretical sketch of stages in the act, building on the work of G. H. Mead.

    Abstract [en]

    Genforskningen har koncentrerat sig på att urskilja vilka gener som påverkar eller skapar vilka beteenden och tendenser. Det finns till exempel en enda gen SRY, som möjliggör förekomsten av manligt biologiskt kön (Mukherjee, 2018). Det finns en gen FOX P2 som har med språkförmågan att göra. Men det finns tusen andra gener som också har med manligt kön och/eller språkförmåga att göra, som tillåter eller förhindrar manligt kön att uppstå i en viss individ, som hindrar eller tillåter en viss individ i en viss familj med FOX P2 att kunna utveckla normalt tal. Forskningen kring relationer mellan gener och beteenden och fysiologiska egenskaper pågår globalt. Ovan nämnda exempel är två av tusentals.

    Relationerna mellan gener är komplexa; en viss genuppsättning kan inte förutsäga visst beteende med precision. Ändå har till exempel den intensiva adhd-debatten präglats mycket av just behovet att konstatera vissa beteenden och tendenser som bestämda och givna ”av naturen”. I fallet adhd gäller dessutom att man hittills inte har intensivstuderat eller spårat avvikelser på gennivå.

    Neurofysiologin rymmer numera mycket kunskaper om relationen mellan specifika gener och specifika egenskaper. Exempelvis visar autism och Aspberger specifika drag i nervcellerna. Hos personer med autism är enligt vissa studier de trådar som förbinder nervcellerna kortare än hos den fysiologiska normalindividen, och genen FOXP2 är frånvarande hos individer med vissa svårigheter i språklärande. Men hos adhd finner man inte neurofysiologiska särdrag.

    Förskolebarnet: lek, språk och identitet2020 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Boken redovisar en systematisk grund för filosofen och sociologen G. H. Meads identitetspsykologi som komplement till utvecklings­psykologin. Fokus ligger på 1) en övergripande analys av hur den personliga identiteten skapas och formas, 2) lekens centrala roll i den processen, och 3) dess följeslagare språket, som i början av livet har just karaktären av lek. Förskolan är ett drivhus för dessa processer, som alla tre i dag är mer aktuella än någonsin.

    Boken lämpar sig för alla som med intresse ägnar sig åt förskole­barns utveckling, i första hand förskollärarutbildning.

    Abstract [sv]

    Allt fler människor börjar nu ifrågasätta de bokstavsdiagnoser som de fått som barn och detta är utgångspunkten för Lars-Erik Bergs artikel När spricker ballongen? Berg återkommer här till ”vikten av att knyta samman kropp, handling och social situation” och hänvisar till forskning som visar att våra gener inte är statiska utan utvecklas i samspel med miljön och att detta sker redan under fostertiden. Tvistefrågan arv eller miljö är vilseledande, eftersom det alltid handlar om arv och miljö.

    Vad kan Svante Pääbos och hans forskarteams kartläggning av neandertalares DNA lära oss om människan? I dialog med socialpsykologisk teori föreslår Lars-Erik Berg att svaret på frågan börjar i språket. Det är först genom samspelet mellan artfränder via ett mer avancerat språk som den abstraktionsförmåga uppstår som gör det möjligt att föreställa sig att en annan värld kan vänta på andra sidan backkrönet.
