Housing support: pursuit from a job to a profession : A qualitative study on the implementation of work methods (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of the study was to look at a particular work group of housing supporters, whomhave implemented two special working methods in their work. The methods have been implemented by two of the housing supporters that also have special education in the methodsSOC (Sense of Coherence) and solution focused brief therapy. The study is based on anethnographic observation and analysis of documents that are used in the implementation. To analyse the information that was given at the observation and in the document I´ve used a theory which illustrates the significance of developing professions so their knowledge become legitimate. I´ve also used a theory that illustrates the importance of implementation and how it´s done at its best. In conclusion, the study shows that the work group have the will to implement new methods in their work. The working group also has the ability to carry out the implementation, butthey are not aware of their own expertise, which should be clarified in order to achieve successful implementation. Difficulties have been demonstrated in terms of the understanding of the new working methods. These difficulties with the understanding of the methods can be a barrier to successful implementation or do so the implementation will take longer time to become successful. The two colleges with specified knowledge became leaders to the group and steered the work group to make decisions based on the methods of SOC and solution focused brief therapy. The investment in providing the housing supporters with special education, space to implement these two working methods also gave effects on the organization.
