Abstract [sv]

I denna studie har vi undersökt hur socialarbetare som arbetar på HVB-hem med ensamkommande flyktingbarn upplever sin psykosociala arbetsmiljö. Studien har genomförts med hjälp av kvalitativa intervjuer med sju informanter som arbetar på tre olika HVB-hem. De verksamheter som representeras i studien finns i tre olika kommuner i Sverige. Fem centrala faktorer identifierades som bidragande till en tillfredsställande psykosocial arbetsmiljö: arbetsklimatet i teamet, arbetstider, kompetens, säkerhet och ledarskap. Studiens slutsats är att arbetsklimatet i teamet har störst betydelse för trivseln på arbetsplatsen och att även handledning är betydelsefull som stödinsats och för att motverka stress. Handledning ger även utrymme för reflektion och bidrar till kunskap. Ett tydligt ledarskap med en stödjande funktion för socialarbetaren utgör en god förutsättning för socialarbetarens arbete.

Abstract [en]

In this study we investigated how social workers employed in a residential care home (HVB home) for unaccompanied child refugees experience their psychosocial work environment. The study was conducted by means of qualitative interviews with seven informants who worked at three different HVB homes. The homes represented in the study are located in three different municipalities in Sweden. Five key factors that contribute to a satisfactory psychosocial work environment were identified: the work environment in the teams, the work schedule, competence, safety and leadership. It was concluded that the work environment in the teams has a major influence on satisfaction with the workplace and that supervision is an important support intervention for preventing stress. Supervision also provides an opportunity for reflection and contributes to knowledge enhancement. Clear leadership with support in the form of supervision for social workers constitutes a good basis for their work.
