Att vara förälder till ett barn med anorexia nervosa : En litteraturbaserad studie / Being a parent of a child with anorexia nervosa : A literature-based study

Rosén, Jennifer, Sandersson, Hanna January 2016 (has links)
Examensarbetet skildrar föräldrars upplevelser av att ha ett barn med Anorexia Nervosa. Föräldrarna har ett stort ansvar och en betydande roll under sjukdomstiden. Anorexia Nervosa har blivit en alltmer vanlig sjukdom som ofta drabbar flickor i tonåren och sjukdomen kännetecknas av en självsvält med en rädsla för att öka i vikt. Studien är litteraturbaserad. Nio vetenskapliga artiklar användes och analyserades i relation till syftet. Resultatet visar att föräldrarna upplevde att sjukdomen förändrade livssituationen. Äktenskapet blev drabbat och det beskrevs att det ofta fanns en oro för hur syskon påverkades. Stora delar av dygnet bestod av att se till att det drabbade barnet fick i sig näring. Föräldrar upplevde även en förändring av sitt egna liv då allt fokus låg på att hjälpa sitt barn att övervinna sin sjukdom. Frustration, oro och skuld var återkommande känslor som föräldrar upplevde i vardagen. Inledningsvis sökte föräldrarna information på egen hand för att få sina farhågor om sjukdomen bekräftade. Då de senare beslutade sig för att söka hjälp via vården upplevde ett flertal av föräldrarna att de blev dåligt bemötta av vårdpersonal. För att kunna hantera vardagen under sjukdomstiden beskrev föräldrar strategier som varit betydelsefulla för dem. Resultatet pekar på att föräldrar upplever ett behov av stöd under barnets sjukdomstid. Sjuksköterskan kan uppfylla föräldrars behov av stöd genom att bekräfta deras situation och inge ett hopp. Genom kunskap om föräldrars upplevelser kan sjuksköterskan utveckla sitt kompetensområde och öka kvalitén i omvårdnadsarbetet utifrån föräldrarnas behov. / Background Until the 80’s Anorexia Nervosa (AN) was a rare disease. With the influence from media and the growing ideal of how a human body should look like, AN is nowadays a more common disease. AN often have a negative effect on parents. Therefore, it is important that nurses and society gain an understanding of parents experiences of having a child with AN, and how it impact their lifes. Aim The aim of the study was to illuminate the experience of being a parent to a child with AN. Method This study is a literature review over qualitative scientific articles, which have been analyzed through a method of five steps according to Friberg. Results The results showed that AN has a negative impact on parents, both the personal life and family life. It also describes parents’ need for support. Parents experience many negative feelings as worrying, frustration and fear. They often had bad experiences of treatment from medical staff. Conclusion This study provides an understanding of parents’ feelings of having a child with AN. Parents have an important role for their children during their illness and on the road to recovery. If parents should be able to take the responsibility that comes with having a child with AN, they need support. Otherwise they can be a threat to their own health. This is something that the nurse should pay attention to.

De l'impasse du divorce à l'aliénation parentale

Bellerose, Jean-Guy. January 1998 (has links)
As the rate of divorce is increasing, the number of children who have to cope with these stressful situations is also growing. Since these divorces come with many problems for the children involved, they are getting more and more attention. The professionnals who are required by the court to give their opinion on who should get the custody or what will be the right of access, have pointed out a particular phenomenon: parental alienation syndrome. The first person who described this syndrome was Gardner (1989, 1992a). He blamed the court system for the syndrome, where, in its adversarial perspective, one side tries to win over the other using alienation as one of their strategies. In our opinion, this view does not account for all the aspects of the parental alienation syndrome and for the emotional turmoil created by the divorce. When, after a divorce, one is trapped in one's emotions, the result is an impass, where parental alienation is but one aspect of this impass. This paper shows how an impass, grows and which form the parental alienation syndrome takes. Cases from our practice will illustrate some situations of parental alienation resulting from a psychological impass and where the children are the victims.

Teachers who bully students : the parents' perspectives

Reschny, Susan Marie 17 April 2008
This qualitative research study explored perceptions of parents who believe their child was bullied by a teacher. The definition used for this study was from McEvoy (2005),a pattern of conduct, rooted in a power differential that threatens, harms, humiliates, induces fear, or causes emotional distress(p. 1).<p>Three individual parent or parent partners were asked to share their stories about their perceived experiences with a bullying teacher. A number of questions guided this research: How do parents come to believe their child is being bullied by a teacher? What are the specific behaviours of the teacher that are perceived by parents as bullying? How do parents respond to their belief their child is being bullied by a teacher? What is the result of the parental response? What are the implications for teacher practice and education?<p>Themes and patterns were derived from the interview data using reflective analysis techniques. The data revealed parent participants came to the belief their child was being bullied by a teacher through their childrens stories, first impressions of the teacher, validation from others regarding their perceptions and their childs physical and behavioural changes. Teacher bullying behaviours identified by the participants paralleled those discussed in the literature. Parents responded to their belief their children were being bullied by following understood school protocol and meeting with the teacher. When parents felt the teacher had employed power tactics, they were motivated to take further action. The participants past experience with schools, and power and authority perceptions also affected parental responses. Parents expressed feelings of guilt for not acting more quickly to safeguard their child. Parents reported the school communities did not directly address the teacher bullying issue. <p>Implications emerged for all stakeholders in the school community. For professional associations, school division administrators and board members the focus for change rests with a re-examination of bullying policy and professional codes of ethics. For school principals, symptoms of teacher bullying behaviours and teacher stress and may need more attention. For teachers, building relationships and presenting a professional and caring demeanor are significant considerations influencing parental perceptions. For parents, validation to action comes from listening to their childrens stories and recognizing the symptoms of teacher bullying. Validation and getting involved in their school community may prompt intervention.
