MetadataVis full innførsel
This thesis is a qualitative case study of empowerment and sense of coherence among immigrant women in Oslo. The five women participating in this study are all connected to PMV - a centre for health, dialog and development. The purpose of the study is to identify factors that influence the women's creation of their lives in a new context, to explore the role of PMV in that process, and to understand these findings in relation to a salutogenic perspective of health promotion. The methods used were qualitative, in depth interviews. As the study seeks to identify factors that empower and promote the women's development, the findings could be of value when developing similar interventions.
