Abstract [sv]

Forskning visar att hot och våldshandlingar mot socialsekreterare är vanligt förekommande. De som utsätts för hot- eller våldshandlingar upplever hoten eller våldet som något som hör till deras arbete som myndighetsutövare. Den här studien syftar till att undersöka upplevelsen av hot och våld hos socialsekreterare. Studien utgår från en kvalitativ metod där semistrukturerade intervjuer har använts, vilka är genomförda i ett län i södra Sverige. Studien har en fenomenologisk ansats då den syftar till att undersöka upplevda fenomen vilket i denna studie är hot och våld. Genom en fenomenologisk ansats kan vi fånga socialsekreterarnas upplevelse av hot- och våldssituationer. För att analysera arbetet har tidigare forskning inom området hot och våld mot socialarbetare använts tillsammans med valda teorier. Teorierna innefattar symbolisk interaktionism samt copingstrategin. Studiens resultat visar att det är hot i olika former som är mest förekommande bland de medverkande socialsekreterarna. Hot upplevs även olika beroende på om hoten riktas mot den enskilde socialsekreteraren eller om det riktas mot dennes familj. Det framkommer även att socialsekreterare ser hot som något som sker i situationen. Klienterna ses befinna sig i en påfrestande situation vilket bidrar till att socialsekreterarna inte upplever hoten som riktade mot dem som person. 

Abstract [en]

Research shows that threats and acts of violence against social workers are common. Those who are subjected to acts of threats or violence, sees these issues as something that belongs to their work as public authorities. This study aims to investigate the experience of threats and violence among social workers. The study is based on a qualitative method in which semi structured interviews have been used, which have been carried out in a county in southern Sweden. The study has a phenomenological approach as it aims to investigate the experiences of a phenomena, which in this study are threats and violence. Through a phenomenological approach, we can capture the social workers experience of threats and violent situations. In order to analyse the work, previous research in the field of threats and violence against social workers has been used together with selected theories. Theories includes symbolic interactionism and the coping strategy. The result of the study shows that various threats are the most common of threats and acts of violence. Threats are also experienced differently, depending on whether the threats are targeted directly against the individual social worker or if it is directed against his family. It also appears that the social workers’ experiences threats as something that happens in the situation. The clients are perceived to be in a stressful situation, which contributes to the social workers not experiencing the threats directed at them as a person.
