Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte var att undersöka hur personer med ohälsa och lidande orsakat av sektmedlemskap upplever mötet med den psykiatriska vården. Studien hade en fenomenologisk hermeneutisk ansats och byggde på fem intervjuer med personer från fyra olika sekter som i samband med processen att lämna sekten kommit i kontakt med den psykiatriska vården. Resultatet beskrivs på tre tolkningsnivåer; naiv förståelse, strukturanalys och tolkad helhet. Den naiva analysen visade att personer med ohälsa och lidande orsakat av sektmedlemskap upplevde att mötet med den psykiatriska vården präglades av missförstånd och brist på kunskap om problematiken och vilka konsekvenserna blev när en person valde att lämna en sekt. Strukturanalysen resulterade i elva subteman, tre teman och ett huvudtema. Huvudtemat fick namnet Lost in Translation och sammanfattade kärnan i studiens resultat vilket var att personer med ohälsa och lidande orsakat av sektmedlemskap kände sig vilse och utanför och hade svårt att förstå och få förståelse för sin situation vilket ledde till missförstånd i mötet med den psykiatriska vården. Den tolkade helheten visade att de personer som kände sig sedda och bekräftade i sitt lidande hade en mer positiv upplevelse av mötet med den psykiatriska vården.

Abstract [en]

The aim of the study was to investigate how persons with illness and distress caused by cult membership experienced the encounter with psychiatric care. The study had a phenomenological hermeneutic approach and was based on five interviews with people from four different cults who in the process of leaving the cult had contact with psychiatric care. The result are described in three levels of interpretation; naive understanding, structural analysis and interpreted whole. The naive analysis showed that persons with illness and distress caused by cult membership experienced that the contact with psychiatric care was characterized by misunderstanding and lack of knowledge of the problems and the consequences that were a result of a person leaving a cult. The structural analysis resulted in eleven subthemes, three themes and an overall theme. The main theme was called Lost in Translation and summarized the essence of the results of the study which was that persons with illness and distress caused by cult membership felt lost and outside and had trouble to understand and to find understanding for their situation and that this caused misunderstandings in the encounter with psychiatric care. The interpreted whole showed that persons that felt that they were seen and confirmed in their suffering had a more positive experience of the encounter with psychiatric care.
