Abstract (Swedish)
Denna studies syfte var att undersöka upplevelser av empowerment hos deltagare i ett empowerment-projekt för personer i arbetslöshet. Semistrukturerade intervjuer genomfördes med tio personer och intervjumaterialet bearbetades genom tematisk analys. Resultatet bildade tio teman: definition av begreppet empowerment, innebörd av empowerment i projektet, likvärdighet mellan deltagare och arbetsledare, uppskattning och uppmuntran, att göra sin röst hörd, att hitta sin plats, ekonomi, vikten av social samvaro, ansvarstagande och egna initiativ, samt egenvärde. I analysen framkom att empowerment kan ha många olika innebörder för deltagare i ett empowerment-projekt. Resultaten diskuteras i relation till psykologisk teori, exempelvis KASAM,... (More)

I analysen framkom att empowerment kan ha många olika innebörder för deltagare i ett empowerment-projekt. Resultaten diskuteras i relation till psykologisk teori, exempelvis KASAM, humanistiska motivationsteorier och locus of control. Implikationer för framtida forskning presenteras. (Less)
Abstract
The aim of this study was to investigate perceptions and experiences of empowerment among individuals taking part in an empowerment project for people being unemployed. Semistructured interviews were conducted with ten people and analyzed through the usage of thematic analysis. The analysis resulted in ten themes: definition of the concept empowerment, the meaning of empowerment in the present project, equality between participants and staff, appreciation and encouragement, to make one's voice heard, to find one's place, economy, the importance of social interaction, responsibility and initiative, and self-worth. The analysis revealed that empowerment as a concept can have many different meanings for participants in an empowerment project.... (More)

The results are discussed in relation to psychological theory, such as sense of coherence, humanistic motivational theories and
locus of control. Implications for future research are presented. (Less)
