Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka: a) vilka attityder har handledare till genus? b) vilka attityder har handledare till en tillämpning av ett genusperspektiv i handledningen? och c) hur beskriver handledare att de tillämpar ett genusperspektiv i handledningen? med fokus på studentterapeuternas utveckling. Detta undersöktes genom semistrukturerade intervjuer med sex informanter, som analyserades med tematisk analys. Resultatet visade på att informanterna har en generell attityd att det är viktigt att vara genusmedveten, att det finns en skepsis mot en tillämpning av ett genusperspektiv med risk att det används felaktigt, och slutligen att de flesta informanterna har en passiv tillämpning av ett genusperspektiv. Resultatet går i linje med en uppfattning om att jämställdhet och genusmedvetenhet har blivit en passiv del av svenskars nationella identitet. Det går även i linje med tidigare studier som beskriver att psykologer tycks ha ett neutralt kunskapsideal med ett individperspektiv, vilket gör det svårare att praktiskt tillämpa genusperspektiv i handledning då det förankras i en socialkonstruktivistisk syn på individen och kräver ett samhällsperspektiv.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to explore: a) what attitudes do supervisors have towards gender? b) what attitudes do supervisors have towards an application of a gender perspective in supervision?, and c) how do supervisors describe their practice of gender perspectives in supervision?, with a focus on the students’ professional development. This was explored through semi-structured interviews with six participants, and then analyzed with thematic analysis. The result showed that the respondents have a general attitude that it is important to be conscious about gender questions, that there is some skepticism against application of a gender perspective due to the risk of incorrect usage, and finally that most of the respondents have a passive application of a gender perspective. The result is in line with a notion that consciousness and positive attitudes towards gender equality and gender issues has become a passive part of the national identity of the Swedish people. The result is also in line with earlier studies describing that psychologists seem to have a neutral knowledge ideal leading to a focus on the individual, which makes it harder to implement a gender perspective in supervision since it is anchored in a social constructivist view of the individual, and therefore demands a wider social perspective.
