This study is based on a casestudy of two former outofhome placed adults experiences, of the transition between outofhome placement and adult life, without the fixed boundaries of the outofhome placement, and which meaning this has had on their socialization and especially their housing status. The purpose of the study has been to show how different two outofhome placements can be, and how big differences there can be in the outcome depending on whether the outofhome placed has been given support from the proper authorities in terms of an Independent Living Program (ILP) or one stand alone, with one’s own responsibility for the ongoing process of development. We are using Berger & Luckmann’s theory about the endless socialization and the resilience research done by Michael Ungar as the fundamental basis of our analysis strategy in which we use a phenomenologically condensation of meaning as a tool to understand the realm of understanding of our cases. The stories of socialization of the two different cases was shown to be very different despite the similarity of the outofhome placements. This was explained with the use of Ungar’s theory of resilience as an outcome of adaptive coping strategies. We discovered that the case who has been living under an ILP had more adaptive coping strategies than the other case who was not living under an ILP after the end of the outofhome placement.
