Abstract
The purpose of this study was to investigate young girls (age 16-17) experiences of themselves and their self-esteem. This was done by semi-structured interviews with eight girls from an upper secondary school in Sweden. The collected material was coded and analysed with Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) as a methodological approach. This resulted in four main themes which describe the phenomena: To view yourself from the outside, notions of pressure, compliance and independence, and intimacy and loneliness. The respondents described their experiences by reflecting about how their own person takes place in the different contexts they are in. The pictures that appeared was that the self and self-esteem can be experienced in... (More)

The pictures that appeared was that the self and self-esteem can be experienced in many different ways and tend to be affected by what is happening outside of oneself. The self was also meaningful to understand in connection to various experiences in relationships. The conclusion was that teenage girls relate their experiences of the self in ways that can be derived from established theoretical constructs such as actual-, ideal- (Rogers, 1959) and false self (Winnicot, 1960) as well as global- (Rosenberg, 1965) and contingent (Kernis, Lakey & heppner, 2008) self-esteem.

Studiens syfte var att undersöka unga tjejers (16-17 år) upplevelser av sig själva och sin självkänsla. Detta undersöktes genom semistrukturerade intervjuer med åtta tjejer från en gymnasieskola. Materialet kodades och analyserades med Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) som metodologisk ansats, vilket gav upphov till fyra olika huvudteman som beskriver fenomenet: att se sig själv utifrån, kravbilder, anpassning och självständighet, samt närhet och ensamhet. Deltagarna förmedlade sina upplevelser utifrån att de reflekterade kring sin egen person i olika sammanhang där de befinner sig. Bilden som framträdde visar att självet och självkänslan kan upplevas på många olika sätt och tenderar att påverkas av vad som händer utanför en... (More)
Studiens syfte var att undersöka unga tjejers (16-17 år) upplevelser av sig själva och sin självkänsla. Detta undersöktes genom semistrukturerade intervjuer med åtta tjejer från en gymnasieskola. Materialet kodades och analyserades med Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) som metodologisk ansats, vilket gav upphov till fyra olika huvudteman som beskriver fenomenet: att se sig själv utifrån, kravbilder, anpassning och självständighet, samt närhet och ensamhet. Deltagarna förmedlade sina upplevelser utifrån att de reflekterade kring sin egen person i olika sammanhang där de befinner sig. Bilden som framträdde visar att självet och självkänslan kan upplevas på många olika sätt och tenderar att påverkas av vad som händer utanför en själv. Självet upplevdes också som meningsfullt att förstå i förhållande till olika erfarenheter i relationer. Slutsatser utifrån detta blev att tonårstjejer relaterar till upplevelser av självet som kan härledas till etablerade teoretiska konstrukt såsom faktiskt-, ideal- (Rogers, 1959) och falskt själv (Winnicot, 1960) samt basal- (Rosenberg, 1965) och förvärvad (Kernis, Lakey, & Heppner, 2008) självkänsla.
