Abstract [en]

Background: Even if the importance of a good relationship between staff and clients is well documented, there is a need for a deeper understanding of the interaction in communal settings. The aim of this study was to investigate how staffs at two municipal psychiatric group dwellings describe their relationships with their clients. Methods: A qualitative approach was chosen and in-depth interviews were performed and analysed through content analysis. Results: The analysis resulted in three categories: The good relationship that gives pleasure and nourishment at work', 'Relationships that are characterised by distance and frustration', and 'Striving towards mutual strategies leads to disunity and splits'. Conclusions: The main finding is the lack of general outlines in nurses' work, resulting in two different approaches to clients, which lead to conflicts in the staff group. The staff group that strives for structure and rules could be interpreted as being afraid of being engulfed by their clients. The opposite group, those who stress the close relationship, could be interpreted as engulfing their clients. This statement can be interpreted as the clients risking being alienated in both cases. The conclusion is therefore that the relationships are strongly influenced by the individual nurse's own view of what he/she sees as 'the right caring approach'
