In addition to this I also studied litterature of relevance. The results of this studie showed a difference between how the respondents experiended self-help-groups. Self-help-groups are important in many ways, for security, for support, for solidarity. Support from significant others are important because they are able to share their experiences to newer not so experienced members. I concluded my essay by stating that self-enhancement can be compared with the quality of life. (Less)
