Abstract
The thesis used a qualitative design.

The results showed the interviewees to have favorable experiences of peer support. They felt that peer support conducted a comprehensive picture of the incident. Findings included in these results, shedding light on the effective mechanisms of peer support, were discussed and interpreted using theories of ritual behavior and... (More)

Abstract (Swedish)
Uppsatsen har haft en kvalitativ ansats. Syftet var att studera upplevelsen hos ett antal brandmän som i sin yrkesroll inom räddningstjänsten deltagit i denna omarbetade form av psykologisk debriefing som kallas kamratstöd. Frågeställningen har dels handlat om att undersöka hur informanterna upplevde kamratstöd och dels att svara på frågan om vilka mekanismer som kan anses verksamma i kamratstöd och hur dessa kan tolkas. Resultatet pekade på att informanterna hade en positiv upplevelse av kamratstöd. De upplevde att kamratstöd bidrog till att skapa en helhetsbild av den händelse de varit med om och det hjälpte dem att lämna händelsen bakom sig. Fynd i resultatet som belyste kamratstödets verksamma mekanismer har diskuterats och tolkats med... (More)

Fynd i resultatet som belyste kamratstödets verksamma mekanismer har diskuterats och tolkats med teoretiska perspektiv hämtade från teorier om rit och rituellt handlande och mentaliseringsteorier.
