Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka hur yrkesverksamma till barn som växer upp med föräldrar som innehar beroendeproblematik uppfattar att barnen påverkas. Resultatet av studien grundar sig i halvstrukturerade intervjuer med 8 yrkesverksamma individer som har erfarenhet inom området. För analysering av datamaterial användes den kvalitativa metoden tematisk analys. Resultatet presenterades med hjälp av 6 gemensamma teman som konstruerades utifrån informanternas utsagor som kunde ge en förklaring till hur barnet påverkas av det specifika uppväxtförhållandet. Temana som skapades var, en hemlighet man inte talar om, tidigt ansvar, bristen på tillit och trygghet, stress och oro, låg självkänsla och när känslor inte får kännas. Resultatet belyser att förälderns beroende har en negativ påverkan i barnets personliga utveckling. Barnets lär sig inte handskas med sina känslor och tilliten till både föräldrarna och andra i barnets liv saknas ofta. Barnet tar ofta mycket ansvar i tidig ålder utan att bli uppskattad vilket ofta bidrar till låg självkänsla.
