Abstract
The purpose of the study was to achieve a deepened understanding for the ideas and conceptions of bullying in a school environment. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with two groups of participants, one group made up of select individuals with experiences of school victimization and one group made up of select individuals lacking those same experiences. The participants in the former group were asked to describe their experience, while the participants in the latter group were asked to imagine life as a bully victim and account for a day in their life. The interview material was analyzed by means of thematic analysis and ten themes were identified.
Differences and similarities between the two groups are discussed in relation to... (More)

Differences and similarities between the two groups are discussed in relation to current research. Some of the study’s conclusions include that notions exist about “classic” and “stereotypical” bullying, that the definition of a bullying act depends on context and that the role of bystanders is underestimated in comparison to research. The two groups of participants differ in their descriptions of loneliness, bullies, help-seeking and life time consequences. (Less)
Abstract (Swedish)
Studiens syfte var att nå en fördjupad förståelse för de föreställningar som kan finnas om mobbning i skolan. Semistrukturerade intervjuer genomfördes med två deltagargrupper på fyra personer vardera, en grupp bestående av individer som blivit utsatta för mobbning under skolåren och en grupp bestående av individer som inte blivit utsatta för mobbning under skolåren. Deltagarna i den utsatta gruppen ombads berätta om sin upplevelse, medan deltagarna i den icke-utsatta gruppen ombads leva sig in i och berätta om en skoldag som om de vore utsatta för mobbning. Materialet analyserades med tematisk analys och tio teman identifierades.
Skillnader och likheter mellan grupperna diskuteras i relation till rådande forskning. Till studiens... (More)
Studiens syfte var att nå en fördjupad förståelse för de föreställningar som kan finnas om mobbning i skolan. Semistrukturerade intervjuer genomfördes med två deltagargrupper på fyra personer vardera, en grupp bestående av individer som blivit utsatta för mobbning under skolåren och en grupp bestående av individer som inte blivit utsatta för mobbning under skolåren. Deltagarna i den utsatta gruppen ombads berätta om sin upplevelse, medan deltagarna i den icke-utsatta gruppen ombads leva sig in i och berätta om en skoldag som om de vore utsatta för mobbning. Materialet analyserades med tematisk analys och tio teman identifierades.
Skillnader och likheter mellan grupperna diskuteras i relation till rådande forskning. Till studiens slutsatser hör att det finns uppfattningar om ”klassisk” och ”stereotyp” mobbning, att upplevelsen av mobbninghandlingar kan bero på kontext, samt att åskådarnas roll i mobbning underskattas jämfört med forskning på området. De två deltagargrupperna skiljer sig åt i hur de berättar om ensamhet, mobbare, hjälpsökande och livstidskonsekvenser. (Less)
