Abstract [en]

Studies show that young adults (16-25 years) lack support when they have existential concerns. Unless the existential concerns are highlighted, it can be an obstacle in daily life, and it may lead to psychological distress in the future. In order to develop care for young adults, a research project is currently being carried out with the aim of studying how caring and learning conversations can strengthen and support health processes in young adults with existential concerns. 

AIM: The aim of this presentation is to describe a research project with the overall aim to investigate and create knowledge about how conversations can support and strengthen the health process of young adults expressing existential concern. 

METHOD: The present research project relies on reflective lifeworld research (RLR) based on Dahlberg, Dahlberg and Nyström. RLR is phenomena-oriented and characterized by the fact that the phenomenon of the study is in focus in both data collection and analysis. A phenomenon should be understood in such a way as "something as it is experienced". Methods of application when applying RLR are transparency, compliance with the phenomenon and “bridling” of the understanding process throughout the entire research process. 

RESULT: At the present, no studies have yet been analyzed, but the following studies from the caregivers' and young adults' perspective are planned.

  • Caregivers who have or have had conversations with young adults who express existential issues in various healthcare contexts such as; Primary care, Youth guidance centers, Student health in high school and Student health at university.
  • Young adults who sought care and expressed existential concern during the conversation. 

CONCLUSION: By examining how caregivers in different healthcare context experience conversations with young adults with existential issues and to describe what support young adults consider to be in the form of conversations, the intention is to strengthen and support health processes in young adults.
