Arriving to Sweden : Unaccompanied male youth's experiences of the social services (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna uppsats är att undersöka vilket stöd ensamkommande ungdomar upplever sig få från socialtjänsten och hur de anser att de inkluderas i arbetet som rör dem när de ankommer till Sverige. Sex stycken ungdomar intervjuades i vår studie, samtliga kom hit som ensamkommande ungdomar för minst tre år sedan. Intervjuerna utgick ifrån ungdomarnas egna upplevelser av socialtjänsten. Det inhämtade materialet kodades och delades in i fyra kategorier. Dessa var: Äntligen framme, Förtroendet för socialtjänsten, Lyssna och förklara samt Tack Sverige. Resultatet analyserades i sin tur utifrån Eides fasmodell. Resultatet och analysen visar att stödet upplevs olika beroende på relationen ungdomen har gentemot sin socialsekreterare. Det visar att ungdomarnas förtroende för socialsekreteraren är av vikt för att de ska ta tillsig stödet som erbjuds. Således visar resultatet att majoriteten av ungdomarna upplever att socialsekreterarna lyssnar på dem, men inte inkluderar dem i själva beslutsprocessen. Slutsatsen av studien är att den enskilde socialsekreteraren har en viktig roll då ungdomarna som haft en bra kontakt med sin socialsekreterare upplever stödet positivare än de som inte haft lika god kontakt.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to examine what support unaccompanied young refugees feel they receive from the social services, and how they believe they are included in the work regarding them as they arrive in Sweden. Six youth were interviewed in our study, all came here unaccompanied at least three years ago. The interviews were based on their own experiences of the social services. The collected material was coded and divided into four categories. These were: Finally arrived, Trust in the social services, Listen and explain as well as Thank you Sweden. The results were analyzed according to Eides phase model. The results and analysis show that the support is experienced differently depending on the relationship the young person has with his or her social secretary. They show that the youths trusting in the social secretary are important for them to be able to accept the support offered. Therefore the results show that the majority of the youth feel that social workers listen to them, but do not include them in the decision process itself. The conclusion of the studies is that the individual social secretary plays an important part as the youth that has had a good connection with them experience the support more positive as opposed to those who hasn’t had an as good of a connection.
