their story with as little intervention from our side as possible while at the same
time making sure that we brought up all relevant questions for our study, we used
a life-history interview method whit the aid of a themed based interview guide. To
analyze what their path to homelessness looked like and how they perceived their
homelessness we used the theory of stigma and labeling. And to understand what
their way out of homelessness looked like we used the Exit process theory. Our
conclusion is that homelessness is a very complex problem and many factors on
many levels play a part in the interview persons life development.
Key words: homelessness, stigma, labeling, exit, process (Less)
