RIWC_PARA_A076 The Lived Experience in Germany

  1. 1. The lived experience during transition from adolescence to adulthood for young people with cerebral palsy Paul Boyle Senior Lecturer
  2. 2. What I will cover: •Background •What am I trying to find out •Research design
  3. 3. Background 111,000 adults with cerebral palsy in the United Kingdom Expectations increasing regarding social inclusion and quality of life ‘Growing up’ - completing education, starting employment, relationships, becoming increasingly independent (Reddihough et al, 2013) Disabled young people experience a difficult transition into adulthood (Scope, 2014)
  4. 4. Living with cerebral palsy Achieve less in education, more likely to be single, unemployed, live with parents, have limited finances (Reddihough et al, 2013) Experience fear, sadness, abandonment (Larivière-Bastien et al, 2013) Not ready for transition at 17-18 years (Björquist et al, 2014) Accepting less than expected (McLaughlin Carroll, 2015)
  5. 5. What am I trying to find out? Ambition, aspiration, social inclusion and low expectations What does this mean – now and in the future? Growing up, and ‘becoming’ an adult Daily reality of living with cerebral palsy
  6. 6. Research aim Understand what life is like for young people living with cerebral palsy during the transition from adolescence to adulthood so as to find out about how to promote positive life opportunities Research question What is the experience of transitioning from adolescence to adulthood for young people with cerebral palsy? What do you think?
  7. 7. Research design Phenomenon of living with disability ever-more apparent Making sense of the world - crucial that experience is accounted for Qualitative methodology - phenomenology and the lived experience
  8. 8. Descriptive phenomenology (Edmund Husserl) Experience can be studied scientifically as the mind directs itself towards objects - intentionality Attitudes and beliefs suspended - epoché or bracketing Phenomenological reduction will mitigate against preconceptions aiding the illumination of the essence of the experience (Moran, 2000)
  9. 9. Interpretive hermeneutic phenomenology (Martin Heidegger) ‘Dasein’ - ‘being-in-the-world’ Interpretivist stance to throw light onto something Focus on practical activities / relationships Worldly perspective - thrown into a world of objects and relationships Interpretation of people’s meaning-making (Moran, 2000)
