    Project Support: En genomförbarhetsstudie av ett individuellt föräldrastöd i socialtjänsten för våldsutsatta föräldrar2016Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Genomförbarheten av Project Support (PS), ett individuellt föräldrastöd för våldsutsatta mammor utvecklat i USA, utvärderas inom ramen för svensk socialtjänst i denna studie. Sammanlagt trettio behandlare har utbildats i metoden, som anpassats till svenska förhållanden i samarbete med upphovsmännen. Tjugonio familjer hade inkluderats i behandling vid sttudiens avslut. Såväl behandlare som mammor uppskattade metoden och bedömde att den var en lämplig insats som förbättrade föräldrarnas samspel med sina barn. Mammornas självskattade föräldraförmåga förbättrades signifikant, och barnens symtomnivåer sänktes. Vissa svårigheter för implementering identifierades, dels metodspecifika, dels relaterade till omständigheter i socialtjänsten.

    Project Support i svensk socialtjänst: En genomförbarhetsstudie av ett föräldrastödsprogram för våldsutsatta föräldrar och deras barn som utvecklat beteendeproblematik2017Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Project Support (PS) is a parenting programme that has been developed in the United States for mothers and children exposed to intimate partner and for their children with subsequent emotional and behavioural problems. The aim of this licentiate thesis is to explore how the programme was received by counsellors and parents in the context of Swedish social service, taking account of the differences between the countries.

    Two studies were conducted. In the first study (study I), counsellors (n 11) and mothers (n 13) from three municipalities and Sweden’s largest shelter were interviewed about their experiences of giving and receiving the parenting intervention. The interviews were separately analysed using thematic analysis and were unitised by a following synthesis. The results were grouped into six themes, which indicated initial doubts to the intervention, and doubts about the participants’ own capability. The themes also showed that working with PS led to an experience of positive change in children’s behaviour, as well as highlighted the need of competent counsellors and adaptation for cultural differences. The second study (study II) evaluated the effect of the intervention according to parents’ parenting capacity (n 35) and their children’s psychological symptoms (19 boys and 16 girls, mean age 6year). The results showed that the effectiveness of PS in Sweden can be sustained to almost the same extent as shown in previous studies done in the US. Primarily, the children’s emotional symptoms, conduct problems and hyperactivity decreased, and the parents behaved more positively with their children. The parents also experienced reduced helplessness and fear in their relationships with their children. There was also a covariance between the parents’ emotions (helplessness and fear) and the children’s conduct problems and hyperactivity as they decreased.

    The conclusions drawn in this licentiate thesis are first, that PS is a feasible parenting programme for parents exposed to intimate partner violence and their children who have developed emotional and behavioural problems, and second, that organisational conditions need to be met in order for the programme to be implemented in Swedish social services.

    A modification of enhanced cognitive behavioral therapy for Anorexia Nervosa – a case study2012In: Clinical Case Studies, ISSN 1534-6501, E-ISSN 1552-3802, Vol. 11, no 3, p. 201-217Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This case study illustrates the treatment of an adult woman who was diagnosed with anorexia nervosa (AN). For approximately 10 years, the client had suffered from various forms of eating disorders and had had several unsuccessful encounters with the health care services. In this study, she was treated with a modification of enhanced cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT-E). CBT-E is a relatively new treatment guide with a transdiagnostic perspective on eating disorders. In all, the treatment consisted of 14 sessions where most sessions were held on a weekly basis. Thereafter, a maintenance and follow-up was conducted via email and with the aid of self-help literature. Treatment time lasted for 8 months followed by a follow-up of 4 months. In this study, the content of each session is described, as are the modifications that were made. The modifications were made to increase motivation and self-esteem, as well as perceived control of eating, which, in itself, is a contribution to increased efficiency and a clarification of important treatment components. Apart from a description of treatment interventions, the study shows the weight gain and other clinically significant components regarding eating disorders that concern, among other things, self-esteem and general mental health. The results of this study demonstrate that this treatment, with the proposed modifications, has been highly effective for this client and hence provides a positive anticipation that this might be a more effective treatment in general for people with AN.

    Replicability of effect when transferring a supportive programme for parents exposed to intimate partner violence and their children from the US to Sweden2019In: Child Care in Practice, ISSN 1357-5279, E-ISSN 1476-489X, Vol. 25, no 4, p. 367-382Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Transferring an evidence-based parenting programme for parents exposed to intimate partner violence (IPV) and their children with emotional and behavioural problems reveals the extent to which cultural and social aspects can interfere with the programme’s effectiveness. Feasibility studies are of value in such circumstances, and the aim of the present feasibility study was to explore, on a small scale and in its natural context, whether the effects of the parenting programme, Project Support, were replicable when transferred to another country. In this study, the programme, which was originally designed for parents exposed to IPV and their children who had developed psychological symptoms in the United States, was evaluated in an equivalent population receiving Swedish social services. Parents (n = 35) self-assessed their parenting capacity and their children’s (n = 35) psychological symptoms. The results indicate that the parents improved their parenting capacity, and feelings of helplessness and fear regarding parenting their children decreased. Those feelings were also associated with the children’s psychological symptoms. The promising results are similar to the findings of previous research from the US, and further implementation and evaluation of Project Support in Sweden are indicated.
