How did they experience their relationship to the professionals and other children and teenagers within the support group? 3. How has the experiences of being in the support group effected them? To answer these questions we performed qualitative interviews with five young women in the ages between 19-21 years old who has participated in these support groups. Our results show that these young women have had big use of concrete facts about their parents’ illnesses and also appreciated fun and games. The young women also experience the support group as a second home and found a lot of comfort within the group. Results also show that they gained a big amount of trust to the professionals who they found a lot of comfort in. The young women also felt a big amount of fellowship towards the rest of the group mates which minimized their feelings of loneliness and shame. Results also showed that the young women had different ideas of what a normal household looked like before they joined the support groups. Some of them thought that the problems at home were normal while others thought they were all alone with their type of problems. The young women feel that their participation in the support groups has led them to an increased sense of security, bigger confident and has also taught them to set boundaries. Their participation in the support groups has also led them to an increased sense of KASAM and Empowerment. (Less)
