Self-esteem among people with substance abuse problems : case study of Västervik municipality's self-esteem program (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to describe the Västervik municipality's self-esteem program and, from sociology of emotions, analyze the therapists' experience of the impact the program has on the clients in strengthening the self-esteem of people living with an addiction but who strive to get rid of it. The work assumes a qualitative approach and a case study was applied. To achieve the purpose, the empirics were based on three semistructured interviews and the program's manual. The interviews were analyzed based on a thematic analysis. The program's manual was processed using a content analysis. The thematic analysis’ themes and document analysis were analyzed using Thomas J. Scheff's sociology of emotion. The result showed that strong self-esteem is important to people living with addiction. Another important aspect in the result is the program’s ability to visualize the clients' feelings of shame. My conclusion is that self-esteem is important for people who want to get rid of addiction and the self-esteem program is useful for the purpose. But it may be that both clients that are in and those who leave the program need more time, better support and other resources to process the shame that occurs. In order to find out how shame can be related to self-esteem and how it affects people living with addiction, further research in the field is required.
