Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project paper is focused on the rehabilitation Project Forward, which aims to teach former addicts about basic tools for participating in the surrounding social arenas. This project paper will be focused on investigating how Forward works, and why they seem to have more success than other rehabilitation projects. The study is carried out on the basis of the empirical material of a focus group interview, which examines the former participants experiences with Forward. The empirical material about their personal stories regarding their addiction and the help they received through Forward, is analyzed from a critical psychological perspective. The analysis is based on three main concepts from critical psychology; capacity to act, self-understanding and way of life. Furthermore a discussion about how project Forward is different from other rehabilitation programs will be included. The conclusion of this study points to Project Forward as a successful program because of their holistic approach to their work with former addicts. Forward is focused on all parts of the new life the former addicts are starting and therefore makes a great effort to give the students tools for both everyday practices and emotional understanding and evolvement.
