The parents' Expressed Emotion and self-injury in adolescents. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Suicid är den näst vanligast dödsorsaken bland unga över hela världen och självskada har visat sig vara en riskfaktor avseende suicidförsök. Självskadebeteende är kostsamt i termer av mänskligt lidande, suicidrisk och samhällskostnader. Risken för svåra följder av självskadebeteende gör det ytterst viktigt att utveckla effektiva behandlingar. I Uppsala utformades intensiv kontextuell behandling (IKB) för att ungdomar med självskadebeteende och deras familjer inte fick adekvat hjälp. Föreliggande studies syfte var att analysera hur effektiv IKB behandlingen var, dels avseende att minska föräldrars expressed emotion (EE), dels avseende att minska självskada hos ungdomar. Studien har även undersökt samband mellan självskador och högt EE. En kvantitativ metod har använts för att uppnå syftet. Deltagarna, 30 familjer som genomgått IKB behandling, har fyllt i självsvarformulär och genomfört intervjuer dels vid uppstart av behandlingen och dels vid avslut. Resultaten visar att behandlingen har positiva effekter på variablerna EE samt självskada.

Abstract [en]

Suicide is the second most common cause of death among young people throughout the world, and self-injury has been shown to be a risk factor related to suicide attempts. The human suffering, suicide risk, societal costs, and potentially severe consequences associated with self-injury make it essential to develop effective programs of treatment for it. One such program, intensive contextual treatment (IKB), was developed and implemented in Uppsala in order to provide assistance to adolescents exhibiting self-injuring behavior and to their parents. The aims of the present quantitative study were to investigate 1) the effectiveness of IKB in reducing parental expressed emotion (EE); 2) the effectiveness of IKB in reducing self-injury in adolescents; and 3) the relationship between a high level of parental EE and self-injury. The participants in the study, 30 families in Uppsala who have undergone IKB treatment, were requested to fill in self-response forms and to be interviewed at both the beginning and completion of treatment. The results show that IKB had a positive effect upon reducing both parental EE and self-injury in adolescents.
