    Needs asessment practice within elder care: does length of work experience make a difference in how care managers percieve professional discretion?2018In: 8th European Conference for Social Work Research: Book of Abstracts, Edinburgh: University of Edinburgh , 2018, p. 151-151, article id Abstract ID: 444Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This presentation departs from the ongoing debate about how care managers - who often function as ‘street level bureaucrats’ – perceive different aspects of professional discretion in needs assessment practice. Few studies within gerontological social work today have explored if length of work experience affect how care managers experience discretion in the decision-making process which is why this paper focuses on this. The presentation is based on a study that uses focus group interviews (n=12) with 60 care managers in Sweden. The findings show that care managers struggle with ambiguous expectations in balancing clients’ needs and requests against organizational systems, local guidelines and resources. Length of work experience seems to play a role in how they use their discretion and cope with the lack of clarity embedded in the needs assessment process. Experienced care managers describe how they deviate from the guidelines and in this way create an increased scope of action for themselves in decision making. Those with less time in the profession describe, greater difficulties in this respect. The results partially support the critical debate that professional discretion can be experienced in different ways by ‘street level bureaucrats’. The study also adds knew knowledge to this discussion by showing that length of work experience and other work experience-related aspects can play a role in the actual way in which care managers reason about and assess clients’ needs in the decision making process.

    Professional discretion and length of workexperience: what findings from focus groups withcare managers in elder care suggest2018In: Journal of Social Work Practice, ISSN 0265-0533, E-ISSN 1465-3885, Vol. 32, no 2, p. 153-167Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Research has explored how care managers in elder care – who often function as ‘street-level bureaucrats’ – regard professional discretion. The way in which length of work experience affects care managers’use of professional discretion remains, however, unexplored. This article present findings from 12 focus groups with 60 care managers. By bringing attention to how care managers experience the needs assessment process, this article sheds light on how these ‘street-level bureaucrats’ struggle when they try to balance their clients’ needs against institutional frameworks and local guidelines. Length of work experience seems to play a role in how care managers claim to use professional discretion. Experienced care managers describe how they deviate from the guidelines at times in order to create an increased scope of action in their decision-making process. Those with less time in the profession describe greater difficulties in this respect. Findings suggest that research should explore if length of work experience plays a role in the actual way in which care managers assess needs and make decisions. As such, they contribute to our understanding of how needs assessment processes are navigated by professionals while also pointing towards the nature of professional discretion in gerontological social work.

    Abstract [en]

    The study examines whether the legal status of children is important in order to achieve protection within Sweden’s jurisdiction. The study also analyzes how the Swedish child protection legislation relates to European law and the articles of the Convention of the Rights of the Child and if the regulations make a difference between children. Finally, we investigate how children of vulnerable EU citizens are dealt with in case law. The underlying component of the study consists of four studied cases from different administrative courts and courts of appeal in Sweden that were relevant to the study’s questions. The study material is analyzed on the basis of a jurisprudence method in which traditional legal sources have been combined with legal analysis to explain the content of the law and interpret the legislation as well as to investigate possible ambiguities and inconsistencies in the design of legislation. The study shows that the social services’ responsibility for protecting children based on their legal status is complicated due to ambiguity in the country’s jurisdiction, as well as differences in how children of vulnerable EU citizens are handled in case law, as Swedish and international human rights law leave room for interpretation. The study also shows that the Swedish Child Protection Act, in relation to the articles of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, is limited by the Court’s interpretation of the child’s domicile. The study’s conclusions are that there are ambiguities and imprecisions between Swedish and foreign legislation. The consequence of this is that children in need of protection will not have their fundamental rights respected since the jurisdiction of the Court in Sweden is unclear and complicated, as there are no guiding rulings from higher judicial authorities.

    “Och barnet har bara att hänga med”: En kvalitativ intervjustudie med familjerättssekreterare om barns delaktighet i insatsen umgänge med förälder via umgängesstöd2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of our study is to investigate childrens’ participation in decision-making processes concerning supervised meetings between parents and children in at-risk families. Earlier research in the same field shows major shortcomings regarding the extent to whichchildren are involved in the decision-making process in these cases. The method we’ve used to conduct our study is through semi structured interviews with seven family law secretaries -all of them with experience from working with supervised meetings betweenparents and their children -working in different family law units in Stockholm, and our study can therefore be regarded as qualitative.

    Our essay starts with descriptions of supervised meetings between parents and children. It then delves into what actual rights children really have, to take part in decisions that affect their own lives. A number of earlier studies in the same field are then presented, as well as a study on childrens’ participation in child protection cases. Finally a study on childrens’ own views and feelings concerning their participation in supervised meeting cases.The collected empirical data is analysed using Roger Hart’s ”Ladder of participation”(1992), Harrys Shier’s ”Pathways to participation”(2001) and Nick Lee ́s childhood sociological perspective of becoming and being. We have also chosen to analyse our empirical data with the help of previous studies.

    The results are similar to previous studies presented in our essay: children are generally not allowed to take part in these important decisions to the extent that they should be, according to the United nation Children ́s convention on the rights of the child (2009) articel 12.1. Furthermore, as seen in previous studies, our results show that the adult perspective in the implementation of the supervised meeting cases is more taken into account than the child perspective.

    Våldsutsatta kvinnor i media2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study analyzes the reporting on domestic violence in the mass media. Or more specific: how women exposed to domestic violence are constructed. The research is based on articles in the daily press and one professional journal for social work. The articles are processed with hermeneutic textual analysis. The analysis focuses on how women exposed to domestic violence are constructed based on social constructionism and theories of power orders. The result from the articles reveals that women exposed to domestic violence are represented as the other by being called the woman in a definite article. Furthermore, the perspective of the "younger" woman dominates. Finally, the study shows that women exposed to domestic violence are reduced to victims of physical and sexual violence.

    Unga transpersoners upplevelse av bemötandet hos hbtq-certifierade och hbtq-diplomerade ungdomsmottagningar2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to increase knowledge about how young transgender people experience the treatment at youth guidance centers which have a lgbtq-certification. Because in Sweden transgender people have bad experience with the treatment from the staff, especially in health care centers such as the youth guidance center, and even at centers which have a lgbtq-certification. Previous research in, both Sweden and other countries, show that transgender people, in contact with the health care and other social work centers, have experienced discrimination, questioning and lack of knowledge which on these occasions they needed to teach the staff about lgbtq-issues. Because of this kind of bad treatment transgender people have lost trust in health care centers and don’t dare to seek help. These studies have even shown that other transgender people have experienced good treatment when the staff have respected them and accepted their gender identity. This is a qualitative study, based on semi-structured interviews that have been made through the phone with six persons who identify as transgender but have different definitions about their gender identity. They have been in contact with youth guidance centers which have a lgbtq-certification one or several years before this study was done. This study has been made with inductive method where a theory has been chosen from the data. The theory which has been chosen is recognition, which is about when an individual’s identity is being recognized or morally hurt. The conclusion is that young transgender people have different experiences of treatment at the youth guidance centers. Many of them have experienced a good treatment where the staff have shown concern, respect, acceptance and understanding for their gender identity. Some of them have experienced bad treatment where the staff have presumed their gender, misgendering and questioning. Some staff have lack of knowledge in trans-issues but some of them have treated the young transgender people with respect. It seems that the most important thing for transgender people is that the staff treat them with respect, more based upon their values rather than their knowledge.

    En kvalitativ studie om bedömningsprocessen i äldreomsorgen med fokus på biståndshandläggarnas erfarenhet av anhörigas betydelse2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the study was to describe care managers’ experiences of assessment process in care measures for elderly, focusing on the relatives’ influence. The study was carried out with five care managers in Stockholm city through qualitative semi-structured interviews. The study´s empirical data was analysed with Lipsky’s theory of freedom of action and concepts of power such as; structural power, intentional power and normative power.

    The conclusion of our study is that care managers’ freedom of action is limited by both budget demands and how the services unit decides to organize itself. Law, guidelines, budget and the superior managers’ opinions affect how the care managers are expected to execute their work in the assessment process. The result of our interviews about the relatives’ influence and participation in the assessment process show that care managers are influenced by structural power, intentional power and normative power.

    The care managers’ experience of the relatives’ participation in the assessment process was both positive and negative. The relatives are most often helpful in describing the elderly’s need of help in the assessment process. The study’s interviewed persons show that the relatives are the ones appealing against the decision. What the care managers considered as negative with the relatives’ participation was that some relatives assertively questioned the care managers’ decision. In some specific cases, the relatives contacted the care managers’ supervisors when they did not agree with the decision.

    Furthermore, the care managers experience that the relatives are essential in highlighting the elderly's need of help in the assessment process, specially in the cases in which the elderly has a dementia disease and has difficulties in perceiving their need of help.

    Since the elderly´s relatives participate in the assessment process, the care managers experience that they need to consider them as an additional party to the case of the assessment process.

    Abstract [en]

    This investigation will examine, through audits of court protocols, and its motivational reasons, how enforcement measures are applied in the event of abuse under the LVM legislation. To try to find the underlying and also the case-formulated formulations that justify the Swedish state, through its municipalities' social services and administrative rights, to the detention of the individual's detention and coercion for citizens. Is not it the free citizen's right to live his life as it wishes even if it is  considered a destructive delivery?

    The empirin is built on the basis of the discourses exposed to the investigation. The intention of compiling the different discourses and concepts contained in these court decisions is to provide insight into an activity that surely passes the public when it comes to such a peripheral group of people as well as to demonstrate critical thinking about the phenomenon and finally suggest a change of the phenomenon

    Problemperspektiv i mediediskurser: Framställningar av personer som begått brott2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 210 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The present study has investigated how people who committed crimes are portrayed in media discourses in five articles published in the newspaper Aftonbladet. The purpose of the study is to contribute knowledge about how people who have committed crimes are portrayed in media discourses and try to understand the essay's examples of representations based on a social constructivist approach. Through this, the study wants to increase social workers' awareness of these representations. It is a qualitative study based on Håkan Jönsson's problem perspective and his analysis scheme. This type of method can be compared to discourse analysis. When the study material was processed, a result emerged that we found interesting to analyse based on the theories of stigma and language as a system. The conclusions drawn by the study are that the presentation in media discourses of persons who have committed crimes is partly negative, in four of the five articles. Instead, the fifth article portrays people who have committed crimes as, among other things, wilful. Another conclusion is that these representations can be understood as a part of a possible stigmatizing of people who have committed crimes and that language can have a contributing part in this stigma. In the fifth article that did not portray people who committed a crime in a negative way, we can see an attempt lifting the stigma of the group. These conclusions are then discussed in relation to the current state of knowledge that includes research on the media and its impact on society has evolved over time, how the media and democracy coexist, how people who have committed crimes are treated in the Swedish labour market, and a similar study on the media's presentation of another socially vulnerable group.

    Tenant by the sea: Tenants´ associations in the industrialized port city of Gothenburg 1900-19502018In: URBAN RENEWAL AND RESILIENCE: CITIES IN COMPARATIVE PERSPECTIVE, Rom: EAUH , 2018, Vol. 14Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The port city of Gothenburg, Sweden, experienced massive social changes during the 19th century. Gothenburg became an important industrial center and the population multiplied tenfold. The urbanization process led to friction as the amount of factory workers rapidly increased. Together with other groups, such as clerks and small shop-owners, the workers formed a distinct popular class culture with organizational expressions and collective mobilization that changed the social and political order of the city forever. One of these expressions was the tenants´ associations, local organizations that were formed to further the tenants claims against their landlords and to advocate political reforms benefitting for the benefit of the tenants. These organizations, seen as a sort of trade unions for the rented home, rapidly grew in the mid-war period. Tenants´ associations advocated protective legislature for tenants and confronted landlords, both with legal mains and with militant methods such as rent strikes and blockades. The associations were also important in the social life of the working-class communities, organizing studies, social events and summer activities for children. This paper examines the role of the tenants´ association in the everyday life of the Gothenburg neighborhoods and especially the role of the associations in bringing different groups of workers, such as port and factory workers, together. By looking at the tenant movement of Gothenburg and comparing it to similar movements in other cities, such as Glasgow, I hope to show how the geographical and social context in the rapidly changing city of Gothenburg produced organizations that both showed remarkable similarities and notable differences to collective action organizations elsewhere.

    Chronic pain and sex-differences; women accept and move, while men feel blue.2017In: PLoS ONE, ISSN 1932-6203, E-ISSN 1932-6203, Vol. 12, no 4, article id e0175737Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    PURPOSE: The aim of this study is to explore differences between male and female patients entering a rehabilitation program at a pain clinic in order to gain a greater understanding of different approaches to be used in rehabilitation.

    METHOD: 1371 patients referred to a specialty pain rehabilitation clinic, completed sociodemographic and pain related questionnaires. They rated their pain acceptance (CPAQ-8), their kinesiophobia (TSK), the impact of pain in their life (MPI), anxiety and depression levels (HAD) and quality of life scales: the SF-36, LiSat-11, and the EQ-5D. Because of the large sample size of the study, the significance level was set at the p ≤.01.

    RESULTS: Analysis by t-test showed that when both sexes experience the same pain severity, women report significantly higher activity level, pain acceptance and social support while men report higher kinesiophobia, mood disturbances and lower activity level.

    CONCLUSION: Pain acceptance (CPAQ-8) and kinesiophobia (TSK) showed the clearest differences between men and women. Pain acceptance and kinesiophobia are behaviorally defined and have the potential to be changed.

    Abstract [en]

    My study investigated how young adult women give meaning to the concept of anxiety. In interviews, the respondents talked about their diverse experiences of the concept of anxiety, after which I made a narrative analysis of their stories. In the previous research chapter, i developed studies that examined the relationship between young women's identity and what was normal or deviating in relation to their experience of the concept of anxiety. I have looked at how the concept of anxiety was produced through modern history from a Swedish and international perspective. As theoretical explanatory models for my study, I have looked at theories of female identity creation based on mental ill-health and theories about the woman as a social construction. My data collection has been through semi-structured interviews about eight respondents. The collected empirical evidence showed that the concept of anxiety has a meaning that is not always clear to the world.

    Abstract [en]

    Families lacking adequate housing are increasingly becoming a concern for social services throughout Sweden, challenging a key promise of the social democratic universalist welfare-state. This raises questions about experiences of parenthood under the threat of facing homelessness or while living in temporary and inadequate residence in the Swedish context. A qualitative, explorative interview study among parents without access to the housing market and housed by social services is proposed for this investigation. Interview-analysis using an inductive thematic framework-based model with content-analysis and interpretation suggests that the sample groups perceptions of reality revolves around four main interconnected themes or categories; housing history, mental processes, child-parent relationship, adaptation. These categories each accommodates subthemes such as process, exclusion, depression, repetitive thinking, closeness. Participants housing history is viewed as a process encompassing experiences of inadequacy and their mental processes seems to be dominated by different dimensions and levels of stress, depression and cognitive malfunctioning associated with future plans and living space. The study indicates that these experiences forge a strong and close parent-child relationship and seems to affect participants’ way of viewing their position in society. Observing the results through a theoretical lens concludes that concepts drawn from systems theory, social constructivist ideas such as social representation and positioning theory widens our understanding of how participants situation.

    Results are also in line with previous qualitative as well as quantitative studies, and can be used to construct concepts and hypothesises regarding identity, class, exclusion and family relations that needs to be tested in further research. Finally, results suggest a careful approach within a social work context towards families living under studied living conditions. It seems pivotal to be aware of how unstable housing can affect mental processes, self-identity and family relationships but keeping in mind that these individual factors are linked to societal structures that lie at the core of homeless or at risk homeless parents’ situation.

    Abstract [en]

    Law (1990: 52) with special provisions for the care of young people (LVU) provides legal requirements that should be met when applying the law. The purpose of this study was to investigate and analyze LVU judges in two different counties based on section 3 in LVU. The investigation includs four judgments from Stockholm's Administrative Court and four judgments from Uppsala's Administrative Court. The judgement elected for this study were based on Section 3 of the LVU, primarily to be able to analyze the three requisits in the law: abuse, crime and other socially degrading behavior. The judgments were based on all the props contained in the LVU. The method used in the study was a content analysis, in the form of a text analysis. The result of the study shows that there are gender-specific differences in the judgments examined.

    Lag (2012:663) om ersättning på grund av övergrepp eller försummelser i samhällsvården av barn och unga i vissa fall tillkom för att ge ekonomisk ersättning till den som i samband med vården utsatts för övergreppen eller försummelserna av allvarlig art när personen varit omhändertagen för samhällsvård, under tidsperioden den 1 januari 1920 till och med den 31 december 1980. En särskild nämnd, Ersättningsnämnden, inrättades för att under åren 2013–2016 pröva om en sökande var berättigad till schablonbeloppet om 250 000 kr. Den svenska processen har väckt uppmärksamhet bl.a. p.g.a. den stora andelen avslag och de komplexa kriterierna för ersättning. I artikeln presenteras resultaten från ett tvärvetenskapligt historiskt-rättsvetenskapligt forskningsprojekt: Gränser för upprättelse: välfärdsstatens historiska ansvar i upprättelseprocesser riktade till offer för vanvård i fosterhem och barnhem. I fokus är glappet mellan den politiska avsikten, att skapa ett rättssäkert system för en generös ersättning, och utfallet av den rättsliga processen, som innebar att majoriteten av de sökande nekades ersättning. Förklaringen, menar författarna, står åtminstone delvis att finna i en sammanblandning av olika processformer och rättsprinciper. Detta kan relateras till en ojämn ansvarsfördelning mellan lagfarna ledamöter med expertis från allmän domstol respektive allmän förvaltningsdomstol. Framställningen tar avstamp i socialrättsligt reglerade förhållanden och spänner sedan över skadeståndsrätt, förvaltningsrätt, processrätt, barnrätt och mänskliga rättigheter.

    Ideologi i rörelse2018Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Utgångspunkten för denna bok är föreställningen att ideologi utgör en central och positiv särart för ideella organisationer. Det vill säga att existensen av ideologi är ett av de sätt med vilka ideella organisationer markerar skillnad och distans från exempelvis o entliga eller privata organisationer. Vidare nns det många aktörer och organisationer som är beroende av att föreställningen om ideella organisationers särart upprätthålls.

    I denna bok presenteras forskning, intervjuer med ledare och analyser av organisa- tionsdokument om föreställningen om ideologi som en särart för ideella organisationer. Exempelvis beskrivs forskningens, omvärldens och ideella ledares syn på ideologi.

    Boken riktar sig till ledare i det svenska civilsamhället samt till forskare och studenter som är intresserade av frågor relaterade till ideologi, särart och ideella organisationer. En av bokens slutsatser är att ideologi verkar vara en tämligen relativ och svag men långlivad särart, som kan fungera väl för att skydda ideella organisationer från krav och återkommande förändringar i omvärlden.

    Upphandlad: Forskarperspektiv på offentlig upphandling inom vård och omsorg2019Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Antologin Upphandlad sammanställer ett antal perspektiv på offentlig upphandling av framför allt ideell vård och omsorg utifrån aktuell och existerande forskning. Målsättningen är att bidra till och utveckla den allmänna debatten om hur den svenska välfärden är och bör vara organiserad.

    I boken positioneras offentlig upphandling i relation till andra former och alternativ för att skapa, upprätthålla och förbättra välfärden – inklusive långvariga relationer och partnerskap. Detta väcker ett antal frågor om offentlig upphandlings specifika förutsättningar, mekanismer och resultat.

    Vilka andra former används i Sverige och i andra länder? Hur påverkar offentlig upphandling innovation, kvalitet och resultat? Till vilken grad möter offentlig upphandling den lokala vården och omsorgens praktik?

    I åtta kapitel diskuterar elva forskare från olika discipliner och länder dessa frågor utifrån ett antal perspektiv. Gemensamt strävar de efter att besvara, utveckla och reflektera kring frågor om offentlig upphandling av privat och ideell vård och omsorg.

    Boken riktar sig till politiker, praktiker, akademiker och studenter som är intresserade av former för att utveckla den svenska välfärden och de ideella organisationernas bidrag till denna utveckling.

    Making volunteering economically valuable: the relationship between valuation devices and volunteering2017In: Voluntary Sector Review, ISSN 2040-8056, Vol. 8, no 3, p. 235-250Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article contributes to previous research on determining the economic value of volunteering by analysing the relationship between the valuation devices being proposed and volunteering and its properties. Is the relationship best characterised as direct, mediated or imposed? The empirical material for the article consists of volunteering economic valuation devices, as presented in previous research, which are analysed with a framework derived from the theoretical field of valuation. In addition to introducing the analytical framework and its application to the field of volunteering, the article discusses the absence of direct relationships while underscoring the dominance of the mediated relationship. It also argues that the imposed relationship highlights a hitherto less-discussed analytical dimension in the research debate on valuing volunteering. In conclusion, the relevance of the findings are discussed and ideas for a future research agenda presented.

    ”Det går verkligen ingen nöd på henne…”: En kvalitativ studie av hur sexköp legitimeras på Flashback2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen syftar till att undersöka hur sexköp i det anonyma internetforumet Flashback framställs och legitimeras av individer som utger sig för att vara erfarna sexköpare, samt sätta det i relation till föreställningar om män och kvinnor genom teori om genussystem. För att besvara syftet användes följande frågeställningar; Hur presenterar förmodade sexköpare sexköpet som legitim handling? Hur framställs kvinnor i det anonyma forumet? Samt hur framställs män i det anonyma forumet? Inlägg från de fem senaste åren i Flashbacktråden med titeln “Varför köper ni sex?” analyserades genom tematisk analys där fyra övergripande teman utkristalliserades. Genom applicering av Hirdmans (1988) beskrivning om genussystem visar studien att sexköpande män grundar legitimeringen av sexköp på föreställningar om fundamentala olikheter mellan män och kvinnor samt männens överordning. Kvinnor kategoriseras av männen i egenskap av att antingen vara sexsäljande eller icke-sexsäljande vilket för männen förknippas med olika karaktäristika. Det framkom också att sexköpare kunde se sig som hjälpare och att sexköpet presenteras som en vara eller vilken tjänst som helst.

    Samexistens eller samverkan?: en vinjettstudie om fältassistenters och lärares yrkesroller och samverkan2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to describe and analyze the difference in perspectives between teachers and field workers, in terms of their own and each other’s roles in work respectively, but also in terms of cooperation concerning children in the common arena of schools.We have chosen to assume the following questions: (1) Which perceptions do the occupational groups have regarding work for socially disadvantaged children and what similarities and differences exist? And, (2) which perceptions do the occupational groups have regarding work that can be done in collaboration and what similarities and differences exist?

    To clarify these issues a total of ten respondents were contacted, five from each professional group, and a total of 9 responses were recieved. The respondents were presented a vignette and asked to answer seven questions associated with it. The main questions of this study were addressed by coding and categorizing the answers gathered, which were later analyzed using the theory of social representations.These answers were put in context using background information we obtained from a number of sources to gain a better understanding of our research problem. Within this study, respondents have had the opportunity to give their views on their own and others' work with socially disadvantaged children, as well as their views on cooperation that takes place between the two occupational groups when it is required. This study concludes that, although respondents are positive regarding cooperation in general, there is no formal platform for cooperation between the two professions.

    Teachers express that they are satisfied with the established system where they cooperate with the school health services and, in more severe cases, directly with social services. Field workers do not express a desired state of cooperation between themselves and teachers, but note that there is no organized collaboration between the two, and that their interaction with school health services is not extensive. Further conclusions that can be deduced are that there are opportunities for field workers to cooperate with teachers, however these opportunities are organizationally limited.

    Att arbeta med ungdomar som har ett brottsligt beteende: En kvalitativ studie om SiS-personalens upplevelser och erfarenheter av återanpassning och smittoeffekter2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The scientific problem that exists in this study is that the institutional care does not show the good results they intend to do. Instead young people learning about crime during the stay at the institution. The aim of this essay was to investigate the experiences of the institution staff working with young people to adapt them to a life without crime, in an environment where the youth could have a negative impact on each other. The questions focuses on respondents' work in order to give young people a chance to adapt to a life without crime and how they relate to the risk of young people's negative impact on each other. The questions have been studied through a qualitative approach and we have through semi-structured interviews collected our empirical material. We have interviewed eleven people working at SiS-institutions. Our results have been analyzed based on Goffman's theory of asylums. In addition to this theory, we also have previous research on negative impact in institutional environment, the staff’s work and institutional care. The result shows that the staff has the potential to adapt the youth to a life without crime. The result also shows that they have different methods of working with this and that it differs between the institutions and departments. The institution stay should be so long that the youth can handle a care in open forms. The results also show that the staff see a risk of placing young people with similar problems at the same place and that young people may have a negative impact on each other. Finally, the result shows that the youth’s time at the institution does not have a bearing on the negative impact, it is the staff's strategies and presence that are crucial.

    Historical justice through redress schemes?: The practice of interpreting the law and physical child abuse in Sweden2018In: Scandinavian Journal of History, ISSN 0346-8755, E-ISSN 1502-7716Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish redress scheme intended for victims of historical child abuse in out-of-home care compensated only 46% of claimants who sought economic compensation for past harms. This article explores the reasons behind this comparatively low validation rate by investigating a) how the eligibility criteria of the Redress Act were evaluated by the Redress Board; and b) the justifications and underlying values used when applications were rejected with reference to the fact that reported abuse was not deemed to be sufficiently severe according to past standards. Victim capital, which determines how vulnerable or credible a victim is perceived to be by others, as well as competence and narration, are essential aspects for this type of legal proceeding. The article demonstrates that the claimants had to traverse a complicated web of criteria to be awarded compensation. The outcomes for claimants were affected by how the past was conceptualized in this legal setting, what competences the victims themselves possessed, what competence and resources the administrative system offered, and the extent to which the decision-making process fragmented victims’ narratives.

    Livsviktigt arbete: En enkätstudie om suicidprevention inom socialtjänsten2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to map out social workers’ preparedness and the occurrence of encounters with suicidal clients within the social services, through a survey. Nearly 1100 people in Sweden dies because of suicide every year and suicide is classified as a public health problem. According to research social workers often encounter suicidal clients, but how these encounters are handled have not been studied in any greater degree. The study’s selection was defined to Stockholm and three other counties. The units within the social services that were chosen for further examination were income support and adult/addiction. Research revolving suicide indicate that socioeconomic vulnerability, addiction and mental illness are risk factors connected to suicide, hence the choice of these units. The collected data material was processed by means of SPSS, through which univariate and bivariate analyses have been executed. The results were interpreted by means of earlier scientific findings, as well as theories concerning suicide prevention. One of the main findings that could be extracted from this study was that many social workers encounter suicidal clients. Most of the social workers have met one or several suicidal clients during the past year. The results also implies that the participants believe that they have preparedness to some extent in encounters with these clients. One fifth of the participants state that they have passed training in suicide prevention and the results show that training of such has a positive impact on their experience of preparedness.

    Abstract [en]

    This qualitative study aims to, using critical discourse analysis, to analyze The National Board of Health and Welfares manual about work with unaccompanied asylum-seeking children and young people. The analysis aims to map how unaccompanied asylum-seeking children are presented and categorized in the discourse. The study also intends to investigate, within the framework of the discourse, whether there is structural anomaly between society and these children. In the study, I have used Fairclough's three-dimensional model of critical discourse analysis, both as theory and method and used theories of social constructivism, power, norms, identity and stigmatization. The result shows that the discourse creates identities and categorizes individuals into groups through the chosen language use. Furthermore, the discourse is sometimes perceived as unclear as the arguments are inconsistent and contradictory. Finally, the results show that there is an incongruity in the balance of power between the authorities and the children.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this essay is to explain how peer groups and social hierarchies are an essential part of, and generate bullying among school adolescents. This has been conducted through qualitative meta-analysis of research articles, which have been interpreted through sociological theories on stigmatization and power relationships between minor social groups. The results are presented through a grounded theory approach and analyzed by meta-analytic methods and discourse analytic ontology. The analysis indicates that peer groups and social hierarchies are stages of complex social processes, between the formations of school classes up until bullying breaks out. The essay concludes that further research of each causal relationship is needed in future research. The causalities also need to be considered when preventing social hierarchies and intervening in school bullying situations.

    Abstract [en]

    People with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), often associatedwith psychosocial problems and reduced quality of life, benefitfrom the guidance of trained medical social workers. Thisstudy explores the effectiveness of psychosocial treatmentin patients with RA using a structured interview to detectpsychosocial problems for 100 patients. These individualswere offered regular sessions with a medical social worker.Three types of mixed-problems were found: mixed problemsrelated to RA, mixed problems related to the life situation, andmixed problems related to a combination of RA and the lifesituation. The RA patients who reported mixed-problems attime of their diagnosis received psychosocial treatment froma medical social worker regardless of the mixed problems theyexperienced. In addition, we found that disease-related mixedproblems seemed more treatable than other problems. Socialwork in somatic healthcare seems most successful in patientswith sickness-related social and psychosocial problems.

    Promoting an image of independence: An institutional perspective on nonprofit organizational strategies2019In: Journal of ideology, Vol. 40, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article focuses on how the alleged value of independence in nonprofit organizations should be conceptualized, researched, and advanced. Through the conceptualization of independence as an institutional norm, the article makes several contributions to research on strategies for independence in nonprofit organizations. Rather than focusing on independence as a tangible organizational quality, the article studies and analyzes overarching strategies with which nonprofit organizations promote an image of independence. Recategorizations of results from previous research and illustrations from case studies of Swedish nonprofit ecolabeling serve as the main empirical material. By conceptualizing how nonprofit organizations employ multiple, and sometimes even contradictory, organizational strategies for being perceived as independent, the scope of research is broadened and the roles of institutional contexts and processes are highlighted.

    The Issue of Gender in Relation to Mental Distress: Reflections on the Gendered Character of Disability and Resistance2018In: Scandinavian Journal of Disability Research, ISSN 1501-7419, E-ISSN 1745-3011, Vol. 20, no 1, p. 238-246Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Neither gender studies nor disability research/disability studies have explored gender to a great extent, especially in relation to disabled men or disabled women. In this article we reflect upon the issue of gender in relation to experiences of mental distress by drawing explicitly on some powerful narratives. Those narratives are argued to show the gendered character of disability and resistance; and display that the social forces and processes that construct and give shape to disability and gender are closely intermeshed. We argue that the gendered character of disablism and resistance should be further studies in the light of the new theoretical development that has been created, because gender matters.

    Abstract [en]

    The present study aims to investigate, through discourse analytical theory and methodology, how parenting role and parents who are positive for gender education at preschool are described and legitimized in forum discussions about children and family on the website Familjeliv.se. The study will look into the discussions if they give an impression of an alternative discourse in relation to the classic female and male norms. What concepts emerge from the discussions, how it is resonated around these concepts and how gender education and gender equality are described in the statements. The study looked at 43 threads with 1544 posts from the internet page Familjeliv.se where the results were analyzed using the Wreder’s three-step analysis model and the central concepts were identified by means of signs, nodal points and fluctuating significants. The previous research as well as the study's empirical evidence shows that, despite the fact that it is both in the Swedish schooling and curricula that pre-schools will promote gender equality and counteract traditional gender patterns and gender roles, this is not the case. Knowledge of what gender education means is weak in both parents, preschools and the public. Discourse positive for gender education at preschool highlight the importance of gender education for pre-school staff and that adults who socialize with children should be self-conscious about their own role in the cementation of traditional gender roles. Discourse also believes that gender education promotes children's development, interests, qualities, skills and give children more opportunities for self-realization.
