Opportunities and Challenges in Social Work with Muslim clients : A literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

En ökad muslimsk invandring till västvärlden har medfört växande behov av att förstå muslimer och de sociala utmaningar de ställs inför. I denna forskningsöversikt sammanfattas och diskuteras 30 refereebedömda vetenskapliga studier som berör olika typer av socialt arbete med muslimer genom tre olika områden; utbildning socialt arbete, frivilligt socialt arbete och professionellt socialt arbete. Resultaten i studien visar en genomgående kunskapslucka i de tre områdena där det framförallt framträder stor brist på kunskap om kultur och religion. Denna brist på kunskap leder i många fall vidare till rädsla och därmed ovilja att anpassa socialt arbete till muslimers behov.  Slutligen presenteras områden med behov av framtida forskning.

Abstract [en]

With the emergence of Muslim communities in the Western World, there is a need for social workers to gain a deeper understanding of Muslims and the social challenges they face. This literature review includes 30 referee studies which are summarized and discussed affecting different types of social work with Muslims through three different areas; education social work, voluntary social work and professional social work. The results of the study shows a consistent gap of knowledge in these three areas, especially lack of knowledge about culture and religion. This lack of knowledge often leads on to the fear and hence unwillingness to adapt social work to Muslims' needs. Finally, the paper proposes some directions and cautions for future research in an understudied field.
