Empathy with a person who has been subjected to violence in a relationship (English)
Abstract [sv]

Personens egen erfarenhet samt subjekts/objektssyn och ansvarsyn har visats vara viktiga förklaringsfaktorer till empati för en annan. Den här studien undersökte huruvida empati har samband med empatisörens egna erfarenheter, tillskrivet ansvar och subjekts/objektssyn samt hur en person som blir utsatt för våld i sitt förhållande upplevs av andra. En enkätundersökning utfördes på fyra gymnasieklasser där eleverna läste en fiktiv berättelse om en kvinna som blir utsatt för våld i sitt förhållande. De besvarade frågor om deras upplevelse av kvinnan samt deras erfarenhet av våld. Resultatet av studien behandlades främst kvalitativt, men också genom statistiska analyser. Studien fann inte något samband mellan empati och tidigare erfarenhet men ett samband framträdde mellan empati och ansvarssyn samt empati och subjektssyn.

Abstract [en]

Research has shown that similar experience is not the only explanation for empathy. Other factors that can influence empathy are: subject/object viewing and responsibility. The focus of the present study was to investigate the relationship between (a) similar previous experience and empathy, (b) attribution of responsibility and empathy and (c) subject view and empathy. A questionnaire was handed out to four upper secondary school classes. The students were asked to read a story about a woman who was abused by her husband. They also answered questions about how they perceived the woman and about their own previous experience of violence. The results of this study are accounted for qualitatively and with statistical analyses. The study showed no association between similar experience and empathy but there was a strong correlation between responsibility, subject view and empathy.
