    Abstract

    The key aim of the study was to create a detailed exploration of young people’s
    experiences of family life over time, as changing contexts can have dramatic effects on young people’s coping capacities. We have focused on trying to understand the processes of coping for young people affected by parents’ substance misuse by focusing on the influence of family dynamics on their experiences and coping strategies. Coping was thus approached not as something inherent to individuals alone but also as an outcome of social relationships. In contrast to the one-off studies common in this field, the longitudinal aspect of this study has facilitated the exploration of coping as a dynamic process influenced by shifting family relations over time.
