Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to illustrate how professionals, who work with psychosocialproblems among children, look at the impact of social factors on behavior that causes ADHDdiagnosis and at the relationship between social factors and the increased diagnosis that hasoccurred in recent years. To answer our purpose, we chose a qualitative approach byinterviewing six professionals who had different professional affiliations. We analyzed theresults using systems theory and attachment theory. The results showed that the professionalssaw various social factors that influenced the behaviors that cause ADHD diagnosis, particularlytroublesome growing environment and the school environment that requires greater cognitiveability and social skills of children today. They also saw that social factors could have an impacton the increase of diagnoses, particularly that the diagnosis can result in that the understandingchanges and that it is considered easier to get extra support at school with a diagnosis.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att belysa hur professionella som arbetar med psykosocialaproblem hos barn, ser på sociala faktorers inverkan på beteenden som föranleder ADHD-diagnos samt på relationen mellan sociala faktorer och den ökade diagnossättning som skett på senare år. För att besvara vårt syfte så valde vi en kvalitativ metod genom att intervjua sex professionella som hade olika yrkestillhörigheter. Vi analyserade resultatet med hjälp av systemteori och anknytningsteorin. Resultatet visade att de professionella såg olika sociala faktorer som inverkade på beteenden som föranleder ADHD-diagnos, framförallt orolig uppväxtmiljö samt skolmiljön som kräver större kognitiv och social förmåga hos barn idag. De upplevde även att det fanns en relation mellan sociala faktorer och den ökade diagnossättningen, framförallt genom att en diagnos kan medföra att bemötandet och förståelsen förändras samt att det anses enklare att få extra stöd i skolan med en diagnos.
