In the shadow of alcohol : A qualitive study based on the influence of eight adult children and experiences of growing up in an addictive family (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna kvalitativa studie har baserats på åtta vuxna barn som har vuxit upp i en alkoholmissbrukarfamilj. Syftet med uppsatsen är att förstå hur de vuxna barnen har påverkats av att växa upp i en familj där minst en av föräldrarna missbrukat alkohol samt hur relationen till andra personer påverkats. Syftet är också att se hur uppväxtvillkoren sett ut för dem.Huvudfrågan i denna studie är hur de har upplevt att de har påverkats. Huvudteorierna till denna uppsats är Thomas J. Scheffs teorier om sociala band, skam och stolthet. Utöver dessa teorier har även Pierre Bourdieus teorier om fält, de olika kapitalen och habitus också använts. Empirin har samlats in genom åtta individuella intervjuer. Resultatet visade att samtliga i studien påverkades negativt i barndomen av att ha dessa uppväxtförhållanden. På grund utav detta påverkar det dem än idag på både positivt och negativt. Slutsatserna av detta är att dessa individer fortfarande är i skuggan av alkoholen. 

Abstract [sv]

This qualitative study has been based on eight adult children who have grown up in an alcoholic family. The aim of this essay is to understand in what way the adult children have been affected by growing up in a family where at least one of the parents has abused alcohol and how the relationship with other people is affected. The aim is also to see what the conditions of growing up have looked like for them. The main issue in this study is how they experienced being affected. The main theories for this essay are Thomas J. Scheff's theories of social bonds, shame and pride. In addition to these theories, Pierre Bourdieu's theories of fields, different capital and habitus have also been used. The empirics has been collected through eight individual interviews. The results showed that everyone in the study is negatively affected in childhood by having these growth conditions. Because of this, it still affects them both positively and negatively. The conclusions made of this is that these individuals are in a way in the shadow of alcohol.
