Abstract
Mentalization is a term that refers to the ability to understand one’s own and others minds as minds.

Abstract (Swedish)
Begreppet mentalisering avser förmågan att förstå sig själv och andra utifrån
mentala tillstånd. Studiens syfte var att undersöka denna förmåga hos personer
med erfarenhet av borderline personlighetsstörning eller ätstörning. Metoden var
Affektmedvetenhetsintervjun själv-annan. Intervjuerna analyserades med
tematisk analys och sex stycken teman identifierades. Resultaten visar att
kroppsliga respektive mentala upplevelser spelar olika roll i identifierandet och
upplevandet av olika känslor och att förmågan att hantera svåra känslor skiftar
beroende på andra faktorer så som livssituation. Studien visar att det bland
deltagarna fanns en skillnad mellan hur självbilden användes i regleringen av
känslor och att denna är tydligare hos... (More)

deltagarna fanns en skillnad mellan hur självbilden användes i regleringen av
känslor och att denna är tydligare hos deltagarna som har haft ätstörning. Kontroll
över både upplevelse och uttryck av känslor var något som eftersträvades av
deltagarna. Resultaten diskuteras i förhållande till tidigare forskning inom
mentaliseringsteori. (Less)
