Abstract [sv]

The number of young women who self-mutilate in different ways has increased dramatically in recent years. Self-mutilation is a way of trying to feel better for the moment. People who self-mutilate often have some other underlying illness such as borderline disease. Women are overrepresented in this group of people and their behaviour is often rooted in a history of childhood trauma, sexual abuse, and psychic maltreatment. The aim of this study is to reveal thoughts about the future among young women who self-mutilate. There are few documented reports in this area. Most of the documented reports are about behaviour. In this study seven young women with a history of self-mutilation described their thoughts in a diary about the future. The results revealed that many of their thoughts about the future concerned their future relationships and related concerns. Even their future education and work is important. There were major concerns about their future and whether they could live an independent life.
