dc.description.abstract The aim of this study is to get a better understanding of the patients' experience of outcome from participating in a mindfulness-based coping" (MBC) program. MBC is a voluntary six months group treatment program as part of an outpatient treatment. What did the patients experience as useful and less useful factors in their personal process of changing? To explore this, the authors interviewed 10 women and three men, divided in four focus groups. The groups consisted of heterogenic patients getting treatment in a naturalistic setting. The results were summarized into different categories of meaning based on the authors own understanding of the richest aspects of the participants' experience. Four major themes emerged as overarching: experience of behavioral change; experience of cognitive change; experience of being together; and experience of change in relationships. The relation between the themes along with the authors' interpretation of the patients changes as an existential change, were discussed. en
dc.description.abstract Hensikten med dette studiet er å få en forståelse av pasientenes subjektive opplevelse av å delta i et "mindfulness-basert coping" (MBC) program. MBC er et frivillig gruppebehandlingsprogram som en del av en poliklinisk behandling og går over seks måneder. Gruppene bestod av heterogene pasienter som får behandling i en naturalistisk setting. Forfatterne ønsket å undersøke hva pasientene opplevde som nyttige og mindre nyttige faktorer i deres personlige endringsprosess, og intervjuet 10 kvinner og tre menn, fordelt på fire fokusgrupper. Basert på forfatternes egen forståelse av hva deltakerne formidlet som de viktigste opplevelsene, ble resultatene ble oppsummert i ulike meningskategorier. Det fremstod fire overordnete temaer: opplevelse av atferdsmessig endring, opplevelse av kognitiv endring, opplevelse av å være sammen, og opplevelse av endring i relasjoner. Forholdet mellom temaene, sammen med forfatternes tolkning av pasientenes endringer som en eksistensiell endring, ble diskutert. en
