Detta är en Uppsats för yrkesexamina på avancerad nivå från Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för psykologi (PSY)

Sammanfattning: Several studies have shown that patients with anorexia nervosa (AN) have elevated levels of shame. To the researcher's knowledge there was a lack of research concerning how healthcare professionals experienced shame in their patients with AN when the study was conducted. Against this background, the purpose of the present study was to contribute to a deeper insight into how healthcare professionals experienced shame in patients with AN, which was investigated through the research question: How do healthcare professionals experience shame in patients with anorexia nervosa? Based on a qualitative method and a phenomenological approach, the research question was investigated through semi-structured interviews with seven participants. The material was analyzed using thematic analysis. The analysis generated the overarching theme of self-contempt and the themes: shame against the anorexic voice, shame against their self and the impossible choice between the shame-loyalties, and seven sub-themes. Healthcare professional´s experience is in line with previous studies on patients, which have shown that shame plays a central role in AN. Further research is encouraged to investigate whether psychoeducation about shame as well as targeted treatment interventions for shame could be helpful in treating patients with AN.
