Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to enhance our knowledge of what it is like to grow up with a disability, specifically, with focus on how adolescents with restricted mobility perceive social roles and relationships to peers and adults. The group investigated consisted of 12 adolescents (aged 15-19 yrs) with restricted mobility from northern Sweden. Subjects (Ss) were individually interviewed. The analysis resulted in a core category (Who am I), which describes how the Ss perceive themselves. The core category was related to 3 subcategories: Relationships to friends--describes the Ss' experiences of peer relationships; Relationships to adults--describes Ss' relationships to adults; Thoughts about relationships in the future--comprises wishes for future relationships. Results indicate that the Ss saw themselves as regular members of the adolescent peer group but that the members of the adolescent group saw them as being different. The relationships to friends of the same age were either defective or did not exist at all; relationships to adults were often characterized as ambivalent or asymmetric, i.e. the adults were helpful and supportive but over protective and dominant. The study revealed that despite the many hindrances, the Ss had a comparatively positive view of their future. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved
