Camilla Kitt Jensen

Studenteropgave: Speciale


The focus of this master thesis is whether or not it is possible for former addicts to transition from a safe environment into a conflictual society. There is a particular focus on what it takes to develop theres conditions of life for the better. The thesis is based on empirical data from three former addicts experiences with the rehabilitation project Forward and the importance that the project has on their current day-to-day life. The analysis is based on recognition theory and three main concepts from critical psychology; capacity to act, self-understanding, and way of life. Finally the thesis concludes that it is not possible to draw a single conclusion based on three individual experiences. However, it can be concluded that a holistic approach, with a special focus on "help to self-help" and the significance of a community, is highly significant in relation to be able to reflect on ones own responsibility in the greater sociality. This has led to increased capacity to act, self-awareness, and a change of life.
