Adventure guides' experiences of flow in outdoor activities (English)
Abstract [sv]

Detta är en studie vars syfte var att undersöka hur äventyrsguider upplever en känsla av flow när de utför olika typer av utomhusaktiviteter. Studien har riktat in sig på flowteorin, då det är en känsla som många troligtvis kan relatera till. Det finns mycket forskning om både utomhusaktiviteter och flow men kopplingen mellan dessa är ett smalt forskningsområde som denna studie ville försöka bredda.

De informanter som denna studie har förlitat sig på är individer med olika åldrar, kön och bakgrunder. Deras enda gemensamma faktor är att de är studenter på ett äventyrsguideprogram och av det skälet passar de in i denna studies målgrupp. Informanterna intervjuades med hjälp av en semistrukturerad intervjuguide och det insamlade materialet transkriberades och analyserades med en fenomenologisk analys enligt Giorgi, vilket gör detta till en kvalitativ studie.

Resultatet av det analyserade materialet är något varierande. Fyra huvudteman har framställts varav tre huvudteman finner stöd i tidigare forskning. Alla framtagna teman analyserades utifrån en fenomenologisk ansats och diskuterades enskilt samt gentemot varandra för att detektera olika likheter och skillnader.

Abstract [en]

This is a study whose purpose was to examine how adventure guides are experiencing a sense of flow when they execute different types of outdoor activities. This study has focused on the flow theory, since flow is a feeling that hopefully many can relate to. There is a lot of research regarding outdoor activities and flow but the connection between these two topics has a narrow area of research, which this study was trying to broaden.

The informants on whom this study has relied on are individuals with different ages, genders and backgrounds. Their only common factor is that they are all students at an adventure guide program and for that reason they all fit in the target group of this study. The informants were interviewed with the help of a semi structured interview guide and the collected material was transcribed and analysed with a phenomenological analysis according to Giorgi, which makes this a qualitative study.

The result of the analysed material is somewhat varied. Four main themes were manufactured, whereof three of the main themes find support in previous research. All produced themes were analysed from a phenomenological approach and discussed separately and against each other to detect different similarities and differences.
