Abstract
The aim of this study was to examine the experience of having a parent in jail, probation or custody during childhood.

Another question was if they experienced any consequences because of the incarceration. The study was based on seven interviews, collected around different parts of Sweden, from women who had an incarcerated parent during their childhood. Identified themes during the interviews were the lack of support, risk factors and protection in the children’s environment and the secrecy and stigma around the family situation. The analysis was based on two theories; resilience and support theory. As a conclusion the participants developed resilience because of the protective factors around them, such as a caring parent or other adults in their social network. Another conclusion was that a few of them expressed that they obtained support in a certain extent, but most of our participants experienced lack of professional support. (Less)
