Abstract in English
The project examines how we, as psychomotor therapists, can support the father's handling of emotions and overall experience, through psychomotor-inspired birth preparation. The project is a qualitative study which uses a hermeneutic approach to examine how the father understands and experiences the phenomenon. The experience is collected through semi-structured individual interviews with two new fathers. Based on a deductive approach to the interview, the project is based on the following theories: emotions, emotion management, coping and Experience of Connection (OAS). The empirical data collected is then analyzed and interpreted in order to understand how the new father handles his emotions during pregnancy. The project will also examine what the fathers individually believe they lacked during the course of pregnancy, which could help with future intervention options for the psychomotor therapist. The preconception is characterized by the fact that we believe there is a need for more focus on the man during pregnancy, as the main emphasis has primarily been on the pregnant woman and the child. The analysis and interpretation show an increased need to articulate what is important to the fathers themselves, and a forum to share it in, to a greater extent than the other part.
