Abstract [sv]

Två studier genomfördes med syfte att undersöka hur människor upplever och bearbetar sorg samt att försöka finna vad som gör att sorgbearbetning lyckas. Syftet med Studie 2 var dessutom att undersöka en konkret sorgbearbetningsmetod. I Studie 1 deltog 15 studenter och i Studie 2 deltog 308 kursdeltagare vid Svenska Institutet för Sorgbearbetning. Tre centrala komponenter för sorg kunde i Studie 1 fastställas: (1) orsaken är förlust, (2) reaktionen är negativa känslor, (3) det finns en varaktighet. Resultatet i Studie 1 visade vidare att bearbetning av sorg kan ske genom handling och/eller genom anpassning till situationen. Resultatet i Studie 2 visade att kurserna vid Svenska Institutet för Sorgbearbetning har en positiv effekt. Några av effekterna var lättnadskänsla, bättre känslomässig relation till sorgobjektet samt ökad kunskap om sorg. Resultatet visade också att oberoende av vilken förlust individen har fungerar metoden.

Abstract [en]

Two studies were carried out in order to examine the way in which people experience and recover from grief, and also to try to establish what makes grief recovery successful. Another purpose of Study 2 was to examine a concrete grief recovery method. In Study 1 15 students participated. Study 2 included 308 course participants at the Swedish Institute of Grief Recovery. Study 1 showed that three core components of grief could be established: (1) the cause is loss, (2) the reaction is negative emotions, (3) the grief is continuing. The results of Study 1 also showed that grief recovery can occur by taking action and/or by adjusting to the situation. The result of Study 2 showed that the courses of the Swedish Institute of Grief Recovery (Sw. Svenska Institutet för Sorgbearbetning) have a positive effect on grief. The effects included a sense of relief, an improved emotional connection to the object of grief, and a greater knowledge of grief. In addition, the results demonstrated that the method works irrespective of the type of loss suffered.

Key words: grief, loss, coping, grief recovery method.
