    ”Man måste vara en slags Tarzan med kryptonit!”: En kvalitativ studie om anhörigstöd i tre olika kommuner, utifrån tre olika målgrupper av anhöriga2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna kvalitativa studies syfte har varit att undersöka och jämföra professionella aktörers arbete inom kommunal verksamhet med anhörigstöd och deras bild av de anhörigas situation. Studien har genomförts utifrån en kvalitativ ansats där empirin grundar sig på intervjuer med yrkesverksamma inom området anhörigstöd, utifrån tre olika kategorier. Resultatet visar att det finns fler likheter än skillnader gällande anhörigstödets utformning mellan vardera kategorin. Anhörigstöd kan utgöra en viktig del i de anhörigas liv då det framkommer i studien att anhörigas interaktioner med det sociala nätverket kan minska utifrån rådande situation. Studien visar ytterligare att de anhöriga upplever en frustration i kontakt med myndigheter gällande de närståendes vård och omsorgsbehov. Slutligen framkommer att de anhörigas kan uppleva ett stigma gällande sin situation. Utifrån utvecklingsekologisk teori samt social identitetsteori kan slutsats dras att anhörigas liv påverkas av flera omgivningsfaktorer, denna påverkan kunde underlättas genom att träffa andra i liknande situationer.

    A qualitative study on the experiences of Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) from the perspective of male victims2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this qualitative research was to get a deeper understanding of male victim’s experiences when exposed to Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) by a female partner. Two men who had been exposed to IPV were interviewed through email correspondence regarding their experiences. To provide a general understanding of the specific difficulties male victims may face from a Western perspective, we have over email and telephone also interviewed three people who work with the issue. The results of this study were analyzed using theories of social psychology and hegemonic masculinity theory. What was stressed throughout the interviews was the importance of abused men to get recognition for being victims of IPV. Our findings showed that stereotypical perceptions of masculinity may affect male victims of IPV in many ways, such as affecting the self-image and hindering help-seeking as well as receiving the proper help services.

    "Det ska inte vara så att livet är kört bara för att man blir hederhotad": -En kvalitativ studie om flickors upplevda behov av stöd och hjälp efter uppbrottet från sin hederskultur.2010Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 15 poäng / 22,5 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of our study was to give girls who are victims of honor related violence a chance to express their needs experienced after the breakup from their families. Furthermore, the study aimed to examine in what extent the girls' needs have been met, how and by whom? The focus was the girls' own experiences thru the breakup from their families and beyond. The issues we wanted to answer were: What needs of help and support does these girls feel that they have? What are the needs immediately after the breakup and how do they look in the longer term? To what extent do the girls have their needs met, how and by whom? What needs experience the girls have not been satisfied? In order to answer our questions, we used semi-structured life-world interviews. We have used needs as a theoretical concept in an attempt to understand the perceived needs of girls through different perspectives. Our results show that the girls are in: need for security both in connection with the breakup but also seen in the long term, needs of belonging to a community and finally, a need of being confirmed as an individual.

    Do views on psychosocial needs of children and adolescents differ among professionals depending on their organisational affiliation? A qualitative study2016Inngår i: Journal of Interprofessional Care, ISSN 1356-1820, E-ISSN 1469-9567, Vol. 30, nr 5, s. 643-648Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Unit managers and employees in schools, social services, and child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) were asked to describe their views on children's and adolescents' psychosocial needs when collaboration was required. A descriptive case study design was employed and data were gathered from 23 professionals in six focus groups. The data were analysed by the use of an inductive content approach. Disparities were identified that were interpreted as different approaches to children's needs, which we designated individual (CAMHS), contextual (social services), and educational (schools) approaches. These were perceived as emerging from the professional representations of children's needs that were created within each working group. The organisational affiliation seemed however to have a stronger influence than professional education, regarding the view of children's needs. We suggest that it would be an advantage for professionals to be able to participate in dialogue groups to discuss the meaning of their organisational and professional affiliations, and how this affects their views. Rather than formal knowledge, such dialogues should contain more essential knowledge related to the professionals' approaches to children's needs and to the diversities in the way they think and work in a give-and-take process. This might influence their way of thinking and working with children and adolescents, and strengthen their understanding of each other's work.

    Parents' experiences of collaboration between welfare professionals regarding children with anxiety or depression - an explorative study2013Inngår i: International Journal of Integrated Care, ISSN 1568-4156, E-ISSN 1568-4156, Vol. 13Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction: Well-functioning collaboration between professionals in the welfare sector has a strong influence on the contacts with parents of children and adolescents suffering from mental illness, and it is a precondition for the availability of support for these parents. This paper describes how such parents perceive collaboration between professionals in mental health care, social services, and schools. Methods: This was a small-scale qualitative study. Data were collected by in-depth interviews with seven parents of children and adolescents diagnosed with anxiety and depression. The families were selected from the Child and Adolescent Mental Health patient records kept by the Stockholm County Council (Sweden), and they all lived in a catchment area for Child and Adolescent Mental Health outpatient services in Stockholm. Results and discussion: Our results suggest that when the encounter between parents and professionals is characterised by structure and trust, it is supportive and serves as a holding environment. Parents think that communication links and coordination between professionals from different organisations are needed in the collaboration, along with appropriately scheduled and well-performed joint meetings to create structure in the parent-professional encounter. Parents also think that establishment of trust in this interaction is promoted by individual professionals who are available, provide the parents with adequate information, are skilled, and show empathy and commitment.

    What do we think about them and what do they think about us? Social representations of interprofessional and interorganizational collaboration in the welfare sector2016Inngår i: Journal of Interprofessional Care, ISSN 1356-1820, E-ISSN 1469-9567, Vol. 30, nr 1, s. 50-55Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Professionals in healthcare, social services, and schools often collaborate when addressing children and adolescents with complex psychosocial needs. Based on theory of social representations, we investigated how professionals in the mentioned organizations perceived each other through their experiences of collaboration. Twenty-nine unit managers and 35 staff members were interviewed in 12 focus groups, and the data collected were subjected to content analysis. Most social representations indicated complex and problematic interprofessional collaboration, although some were positive in nature. We also found social representations regarding ignorance of each other's organizations, distrust, unavailability, and uncommunicativeness. Conceptions of the other party's way of thinking appeared to include adverse attitudes and low expectations from the other side. Concurrently, there was mutual understanding of the limited room to maneuver and heavy workloads. The professionals' perceptions reflected frustration and ambivalence, and also indicated that dialogue was prevented by established boundaries and low expectations. We conclude that arenas are needed for productive dialogue and exchange of relevant knowledge in such collaborative systems, and that management should enable staff to collaborate based on the existing boundaries.

    Ungdomar på behandlingshem: Några ungdomars erfarenheter av institutionsvård samt förståelse av den egna självbilden i relation till sitt sociala nätverk2004Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Studiens syfte var att kartlägga ungdomars upplevelser av sin institutionsplacering samt sätta detta i relation till socialpsykologiska begrepp som stämpling och självbild. Undersökningen bygger på halvstrukturerade intervjuer med fyra ungdomar placerade på institution. Resultaten analyserades i relation till socialpsykologiska begrepp som stämpling och självbild, utifrån symbolisk interaktionism och stämplingsteorin samt om disciplinering utifrån social responsivitet. I studien har framkommit att ungdomarna ofta har en problematisk relation till sina föräldrar. Ungdomarna har en klar uppfattning om hur människor i deras sociala nätverk skulle beskriva dem och det verkar som att de är vana vid att se sig själva utifrån andras ögon. Ungdomarna identifierade sig med och trodde i stor utsträckning att personer i deras sociala nätverk skulle säga negativa saker om dem. Alla ungdomarna uppgav att det var svårt att skaffa vänner när man bor på institution och de upplevde att de i stor utsträckning hade en negativ påverkan på varandra, så kallad negativ smittoeffekt. Det som ungdomarna framförallt upplevde som positivt med att bo på institution var att det alltid fanns människor runt om kring en. Som mest negativt upplevdes att man fick en begränsad frihet och inte hade så stor möjlighet att träffa andra ungdomar.

    Gender perspectives in psychometrics related to leisure time noise exposure and use of hearing protection2011Inngår i: Noise & Health, ISSN 1463-1741, E-ISSN 1998-4030, Vol. 13, nr 55, s. 407-414Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the present study was to investigate possible gender differences regarding psychometric scales measuring risk perception in noisy situations, attitudes towards loud music, perceived susceptibility to noise, and individual norms and ideals related to activities where loud music is played. In addition the purpose was to analyze whether these variables are associated with protective behavior such as the use of hearing protection. A questionnaire was administered to a Swedish sample including 543 adolescents aged 16 to 20. The result revealed significant gender differences for all the psychometric scales. In addition, all psychometric measures were associated with hearing protection use in musical settings. Contrary to previous studies, gender did not contribute to any explanation of protective behavior by itself in the analysis. One conclusion is that although gender does not contribute by itself for the explanation of protective behavior, gender may affect psychological variables such as risk perception, attitudes and perceived susceptibility and that these variables may in turn be valuable for decision-making and protective behavior in noisy situations. Although women tend to be more careful psychologically, they nevertheless tend to behave in the same way as men as regards actual noise-related risk taking.

    Postcolonialism in Development Policy: - a comparative analysis of SIDA and USAID2009Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

     

    Two recent tendencies are brought together in this study; the emergence of a postcolonial academic discipline and the restructuring of international development aid and cooperation. Researchers have tried to advocate a postcolonial perspective in policies for international development. This study investigates to what extent this has been done in key documents from SIDA and USAID. A qualitative dimensional analysis was performed from which the results are then used for a comparative analysis. The findings show that documents from both agencies only to a limited extent express a postcolonial perspective, though; documents from SIDA show a stronger prevalence of a postcolonial perspective in some dimension and in the overall index. As demonstrated with the MIP index, both agencies policy documents have more non-postcolonialist rhetoric. The documents demonstrate a development discourse in which the donor countries own national development is prioritized at the cost of that of the receiver countries.

    Hatbrott & nationalism i Sverige, finns det ett samband?2010Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    AbstractMedia presents hate crimes and nationalism as phenomenon that has increased both internationally and nationally in recent years. Further media largely pair these phenomenon together. The groups mostly exposed to hate and nationalism are people of different ethnic origin and LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bi, trans and queer) people. In Sweden's general election in 2010 a RHP-party, Sweden Democrats, made it in to Parliament. The purpose of this study was to examine how hate crimes and nationalism, in the form of the Sweden Democrats, has increased in Sweden and if there was any link between them. By mapping the proportion of reported hate crimes and the proportion of eligible voters who voted for the Sweden Democrats in Sweden between 1997 and 2009 the study's main aim was to investigate whether there was any link between the proportion of reported hate crimes and the proportion of voters for Sweden Democrats in Sweden. The results question whether an actual increase of hate crime occurred due to methodological changes in the Swedish Security Service, the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention and the police. Also the dark figure is large regarding this crime. Sweden Democrats has had strong success in recent years, but whether this is a sign of increased nationalism can’t be impugned. 1998 and 1999 revealed a relationship between hate crime complaints and voting on the Sweden Democrats, but after 1999 the relationship is weak.

    Att vara familj, vän & förebild: En kvalitativ studie om integrationsassistenters arbete med ensamkommande flyktingbarn- och ungdomar under asylprocessen2015Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The aim with this study is to examine and analyze how the employees at two residential care homes for unaccompanied refugee children work with the children during their pending decision for asylum in Sweden. The purpose is to gain insight into the employees’ daily work with the target audience and how they handle decisions with the children. The method to collect data is to carry 6 interviews with the employees at the residential care home. The interviews were semi-structured with purpose of letting the interviewee lead the content of the interview. The results of the interviews show that the employees have very varied types of duties within their profession. The employees must also maintain many different roles, for example family, teacher and friend. The employees do often have to face very difficult situations with the children during their wait for a residence permit decision. The result was analyzed with theories as Integration Theory and Coping theory. The conclusions of this study are that the employees at the residential care homes for refugee children have very multifaceted work tasks with a very important target group. The increased amount of unaccompanied refugee children and adolescents escaping to Sweden has led to a situation that the Swedish society haven’t had time to adjust to. Clarifying how the employees work and treat the unaccompanied children can contribute to spreading this knowledge to other community stakeholders.

    Enhetschefer och undersköterskors perspektiv på rapportering enligt lex Sarah inom kommunal äldreomsorg2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to examine the experience, knowledge and attitude to mandatory reports of mistreatments amongst first line managers and assistance nurses in municipal elderly care. The following questions were at the center of the analysis: how do the different professional groups view having to report their own organization? How can various factors affect the mandatory reporting of mistreatments? What knowledge do the different professional groups have of mistreatments and mandatory reporting? A qualitative research method was used to examine these questions in the form of semi structured interviews and a small document study. The interviews were carried out with assistance nurses and first line manages in elder care, we interviewed four respondents from both professional groups. The interviews were then transcribed and coded with help of a content analysis. We have used Berger and Luckmanns theories about institutionalization when analyzing our results. We have also used Lipskys theory about street-level bureaucracy. The analysis is structured around themes and analyzed based on previous research and the above said theories. Our results show that there is a struggle amongst the both first line managers and assistance nurses to fully comprehend the complexity of mandatory reporting of mistreatments and that it’s often hard to draw the line between mandatory reporting of mistreatments and other less severe reporting’s such as deviation reports. Further, we have concluded that there is a fear amongst assistance nurses of reporting. Primarily because of a belief that reprisals, first and foremost from colleagues, will follow. We have also concluded that the workplace often seems to be characterized by a normative system in which loyalty and silence are common elements which may inhibit reporting.

    Key words: mandatory reporting of mistreatments, knowledge, attitudes, experience, elder care.

    Nyckelord: lex Sarah, kunskap, inställning, erfarenhet, äldreomsorg.

    Socialt arbete och diakoni i Svenska kyrkan: En diskursanalys av församlingsinstruktioner2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Social work is a wide term but often presented as the form of activities done by public welfare organisations. This study aims to present an analys of social work done by the Church of Sweden congregations. The study uses a discourseanalys perspectiv to study local congregations’ instructional documents that describe their diaconia. The result shows that social work in diaconia is characterized by different hegemonies and conflicts of understanding and practices. The study shows how church of Sweden formulation can be influenced by history and political and ideological issues as well as economical issues for the church. The author means that we need more studies of how social work is understood by other welfare actors in Sweden in order to develop a deeper understanding of social work.

Theoretical concepts which are central in the study are: the nuclear family, institution, ideals, standards, and established and outsiders. By the results of the study demonstrated that family law secretaries do not meet nuclear family in its practice and it detected no direct efforts to promote such ideals. Nuclear family's status as an ideal and norm turns out to be low in the three themes of four, where the fourth indicates a high status. In the fourth theme raised by that it is first in the family law secretaries own starting points that the nuclear family is becoming a reality and generates a higher status as ideal and norm.

    Samordnad vårdplanering: en kvalitativ studie2006Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Sammanfattning

    Syftet med denna uppsats är att studera hur en samverkan mellan sjuksköterska och biståndshandläggare kan gå till vid en samordnad vårdplanering i sjukhusmiljö avseende patienter som av läkare har förklarats utskrivningsklara. Våra frågeställningar handlar om hur samverkan sker mellan sjuksköterskan och biståndshandläggaren i de samordnade vårdplaneringarna på sjukhuset. Dessutom granskade vi hur sjuksköterskan och biståndshandläggaren ser på sina egna yrkesroller respektive varandras. Metoden är en kvalitativ ansats och bygger på fyra observationer samt åtta uppföljande intervjuer med sjuksköterskan och biståndshandläggaren som deltog i den samordnade vårdplaneringen. I vårt empiriska resultat och analys visade det sig att många faktorer påverkar samverkan mellan sjuksköterskan och biståndshandläggare som t. ex. organisationernas ekonomi, stress samt tidsbrist. Vi fann liknande överensstämmelser med både svenska och utlänska studier. I vårdplaneringarna uppstår ett dynamiskt spel mellan de olika professionerna. Sjuksköterska och biståndshandläggare anser sig ha viktiga roller samtidigt som de bevakar över sina revir. Det medicinska perspektivet dominerar över det sociala omsorgsperspektivet. De båda professionerna utgår ifrån olika lagar och vetenskapliga discipliner. Utifrån det saknar sjuksköterskan och biståndshandläggaren respekt och kunskap om varandras yrkesroller.

    Kan ett nyutvecklat handledsstöd förbättra möjligheterna för funktionell träning av övre extremiteten för reumatiker?: En SEMG-studie2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    I en generell rehabiliteringsfas så är styrketräning en viktig del på grund av att muskelsvaghet kan bidra till nedsatt funktion och det leder till avvikande rörelsemönster. Begränsad range of motion (ROM) i övre extremiteten är en bidragande faktor till att individer inte kan utföra vardagliga aktiviteter. Flera studier har dokumenterat att patienter med reumatoid artrit (RA) har försämrad handfunktion på grund av nedsatt greppstyrka och inskränkningar i ROM.

    Funktionell träning är till för att stärka upp de svaga musklerna som orsakar obalansen eller smärtan samtidigt som kroppen blir rörligare. Genom att använda sig av vardagliga rörelser och implementera dem med träningen så görs träningen mer funktionell. Syftet med studien var att utveckla och utvärdera ett nytt handledsstöd för att öka möjligheterna till funktionell träning av övre extremiteterna för reumatiker.

    I studien deltog 27 kvinnor varav 8 stycken med diagnosen RA och 19 stycken friska. Medelåldern var 38år (20-73år). Muskelaktiviteten i m. trapezius och m. rhomboideus mättes med hjälp av ytelektromyografi (sEMG) under tre övningar för att jämföra skillnaderna mellan både RA och friska, samt med och utan framtagen produkt.

    Resultaten visade att det går att träna övre extremiteten utan behöva använda handens greppstyrka. Det var ingen signifikant skillnad i muskelaktivitet i m. trapezius och m. rhomboideus med eller utan produkt. Resultaten visade även att reumatisk muskulatur inte skiljer sig från frisk. Deltagarnas subjektiva uppfattning var mycket positiv där 24 av 27 deltagare upplevde det som enklare att genomföra övningen med produkten och 9 av 27 upplevde det enklare att fokusera på övningen.

    Studien har resulterat i ett nytt handledsstöd som möjliggör funktionell träning av m.trapezius och m.rhomboideus för reumatiker.

    Idrott och hälsa i interaktion?2008Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Sammanfattning

    Det blir allt mer viktigt att främja god hälsa när människan idag lever ett liv i ett samhälle fyllt med höga krav. Syftet med uppsatsen är att få insyn i hur verksamma lärare i idrott och hälsa arbetar med hälsoundervisning samt att ge en förståelse av vad hälsobegreppet kan stå för. Vad styrdokumenten uttrycker om hälsa och hur den överensstämmer med verkligheten.

    Jag har gjort fem kvalitativa intervjuer med verksamma idrottslärare i årskurs 7-9. Till hjälp har jag använt relevant litteratur från tidigare forskning. Resultatet av intervjuerna har analyserats och väsentligt stoff har sammanfattningsvis redovisats.

    Mitt resultat visar att det är den fysiska aktiviteten som dominerar idrottsundervisningen och att rörelsens betydelse för hälsan är stor. De få timmar som ämnet har anser lärarna påverkar valet av undervisning. Det är den holistiska synen på hälsa som lärarna vill framhäva men belyser också det vaga och svårdefinierbara i begreppet. Majoriteten menar att hälsa är när individen mår bra. Den sociala aspekten är den som främst skapar ohälsa hos eleverna vilket leder till negativa konsekvenser för hela individen. Hälsa förknippas ofta med teoripass medan idrott sammanförs med praktisk undervisning. Några menar dock att hälsa integreras när tillfälle ges. Det är främst ergonomi, kost, kondition och rörelseglädje som lärarna framhåller som de dominerande inslagen i deras hälsoundervisning. Flera av dem har främst som målsättning att få de inaktiva eleverna att röra sig och se hälsans betydelse i ett framtida perspektiv.

    Hur kan ungdomar tycka att cannabis är farligt?: En studie om vad som påverkar ungdomars riskperception avseende cannabisbruk2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Andelen ungdomar som inte uppfattar några större risker med cannabisbruk har ökat de senaste åren. Ungdomarnas uppfattning av riskerna med cannabisbruk påverkar huruvida de kommer att välja att avstå från eller bruka drogen. Syftet med denna uppsats har varit att se vilka risk- och skyddsfaktorer som påverkar ungdomars riskperception avseende cannabisbruk. Frågeställningarna har varit hur föräldrarna, skolan och vännerna påverkar riskperceptionen. Uppsatsen utgår från en subjektiv syn på riskperception som innebär att inte en faktor ensamt kan förklara om ungdomarna har en låg eller hög riskperception. För att analysera resultatet i uppsatsen har risk- och skyddsfaktorer, som har setts minska eller öka sannolikheten för ett cannabisbruk, använts. Det material som ligger till grund för uppsatsens undersökning är Centralförbundet för alkohol och narkotikas drogvaneundersökning från år 2010. Resultatet har tagits fram med hjälp av logistiska regressionsanalyser vilka visar hur starkt olika faktorer relateras till en låg riskperception även när hänsyn tas till andra faktorer. Flera faktorer kopplade till vännerna och föräldrarna har i resultatet visat sig ha ett statistiskt samband med ungdomarnas riskperception avseende cannabisbruk. Samtidigt fanns inget samband mellan skolan och riskperceptionen när föräldrarna och vänner togs med i beaktande.

    Den kommunala barnavården - om anmälningar, organisation och utfall2006Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The thesis presents descriptions and analyses of the municipal-based work that precedes service provision in child welfare, i.e. referrals where concerns regarding children and adolescents are made from professionals and general public and the processing of these referrals within child welfare agencies. The central focus lies to examine the importance of organisational factors – such as formal structures, resources and working methods – in this work. The empirical material in studies 1-3 consists of data collected on location in 100 municipalities during 2001-2002 augmented with official statistics and register data. Data in study 4 consists of telephone interviews in the city of Stockholm’s 18 districts, written material and in-depth interviews in one of the districts.

    Study 1 describes the extent and nature of referrals to child welfare agencies. The study shows that the extent of Swedish referrals occupies a medium position in an international perspective, that referrals mainly concern adolescents, and that child referrals to a comparatively little extent concern abuse and neglect.

    Study 2 analyses the association between agency collaborative involvement with mandated reporters and referral rates. The association is overall marginal, indicating that merely the presence of collaboration in child welfare has poor effects on case finding.

    Study 3 analyses the association between organisational factors and the provision of child welfare services. To some extent, the results suggest that personnel resources are linked to the extent of services provided to younger children. Specialisation in various forms, however, is not associated with variations in service provision.

    Study 4 describes and analyses the impact of organisational solutions in line with New Public Management. The results indicate that this theoretical/ideological idea has limited practicality in concrete child welfare work.

    An introductory section presents a comprehensive background to and the theoretical framework of the four studies. The theoretical framework consists principally of concepts and reasoning derived from new institutional theory. This framework is used to discuss results generated from the four studies. Specific attention is given to institutions and ideas in child welfare that have a ‘taken for granted’ status, such as early interventions, collaboration and the presumed appropriateness of a range of organisational settings.

    United we stand:  Collaboration as a means for identifying children and adolescents at risk2007Inngår i: International Journal of Social Welfare, ISSN 1369-6866, E-ISSN 1468-2397, Vol. 16, nr 3, s. 202-211Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The study describes collaborative involvement of child welfare agencies in Sweden with mandated reporters and analyses the association between socioeconomic and demographic factors as well as collaborative involvement on referral rates. The empirical material consists of data collected on location in 100 Swedish child welfare agencies, augmented with register data. The study shows that: (i) collaboration is common in the child welfare field, (ii) structural factors moderately predict municipal variations in child welfare referrals and (iii) most importantly, that collaboration on the aggregate level seems to serve as a marginal, or even counter-productive, measure in identifying children and adolescents at risk. The results are particularly discussed in the context of policy principles in Swedish child welfare, i.e. collaboration as a statutory requirement for child welfare agencies and the official notion of collaboration as an important means to facilitate early interventions.

    The material side of foster care:: economic and material resources among foster carers and foster youths in Swedish child welfare2011Inngår i: Adoption & Fostering: The Quarterly Journal of British Agencies for Adoption & Fostering, ISSN 0308-5759, E-ISSN 1740-469X, Vol. 34, nr 4, s. 27-38Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Outcome studies in foster care have tended to focus on children's development and long-term adjustment. The economic aspects of placements and their effect on children's immediate welfare have been little explored. Stefan Wiklund and Marie Sallnäs compare the economic circumstances of Swedish foster carers with adults in the wider population and contrast the situation of 125 older children in foster homes, teenagers in the community and a group in residential care. As few differences were found, except for the relative disadvantage of those in residential settings, it is concluded that there is no intrinsic reason why foster care should deprive children economically. Moreover, as the child's welfare while in care is important in its own right, the criteria used to assess the suitability of carers should include measures of available resources.

    Jag är här för att jobba med människor, inte för att skriva om dem: En kvantitativ undersökning om omsorgspersonals inställning till social dokumentation inom äldreomsorgen2008Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the thesis was to explore the attitudes toward social documentation held by care personnel, as well as factors that could have an impact on the process of social documentation. The study is based on a survey encompassing 100 respondents working as care personnel at six different eldercare units at Kungsholmen in Stockholm. The data was analyzed by quantitative methods, using a statistical software package (SPSS).

     

    The main questions in the study are whether the respondents know how, what and why they should document, what obstacles they experience and what they would need in order to document more or better, as well as whether there are factors that influence their attitudes and knowledge regarding documentation.

     

    The key results show that more time is the most common need, and lack of time the most common obstacle to social documentation reported by the respondents. Furthermore, the results show that those who report that they are satisfied with their working conditions are most likely to also report that they know how and why social documentation should be conducted. These results suggest that it is urgent for organizations to create good working conditions in order to increase motivation for social documentation.

     

    The results are analyzed using organizational theories. Additionally, we discuss the experiences reported by the personnel from a historical perspective

    Sociala medier - en påverkande faktor på identitetsutveckling och psykiskt välbefinnande: En kvalitativ studie om unga kvinnors uppfattningar och erfarenheter av sociala medier2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka och uppmärksamma unga kvinnors uppfattningar och erfarenheter avseende hur sociala medier påverkar deras identitetsutveckling och psykiska välbefinnande. Det är en kvalitativ studie baserad på två fokusgrupper med tre högskole- och universitetsstuderande kvinnor, i åldern 18 - 25. Det genomfördes även en individuell intervju med en professionell som är verksam på en stödmottagning för psykisk ohälsa. Den teoretiska utgångspunkten i analysen är symbolisk interaktionism, social interaktion, stigma och skam. Kvinnorna upplever att sociala medier har positiv och negativ inverkan på deras identitetsutveckling och psykiska välbefinnande. Kvinnorna upplever att sociala medier ökar en medvetenhet om skönhetsideal, att en större omfattning av människor kan döma ens egen presentation av en själv samt att stress och negativ självbild kan försämra det psykiska välbefinnandet och påverka identitetsutvecklingen.

    Sexuellt våld mot kvinnor: En granskning av stöd och samverkan för kvinnor som blivit utsatta för sexuellt våld i en kommun i norra Sverige2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka vilka insatser som kan erbjudas för kvinnor som blivit utsatta för sexuellt våld inom en kommun i norra Sverige. Vidare undersöker studien hur olika verksamheter samverkar kring sexuellt våld samt eventuella utvecklingsmöjligheter. Studien har genomförts med hjälp av kvalitativa intervjuer med verksamheter som arbetar med kvinnor som blivit utsatta för sexuellt våld. Intervjuerna har sedan analyserats med analysmetoden grounded theory. Slutsatserna som framkommer i denna studie är att det finns samstämmighet bland informanterna om att det råder en generellt god samverkan. Det framkommer även att det finns utvecklingsmöjligheter i kommunikationen mellan informanternas verksamheter men även utveckling för gemensamma riktlinjer och styrdokument i arbetet med sexuellt våld.

    Ethnic and racial diversity in social work education: a study of curriculums in social work education in Sweden2017Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the study presented is to investigate how ethnic and racial diversity is integrated into the literature and curriculum of social work programme in Sweden. The study is based on text analysis of curriculum development from the year 1967 – 2014. Sweden has had inflows of changing forms of migration, whereas 1970’s were dominated by labour-market immigrants, and later from 1980’s-2015’s by high inflows of refugee-immigrants.  These migration-flows impact on professional social work and challenge universities to enable the students to achieve theoretical and critical knowledge and skills needed to work for a sustainable future in an ethnic diverse population and clientele. The study raises questions about how development of content in Swedish social work programme has developed through the years in relation to a context of migration and professional claims of increasing social workers’ knowledge about ethnic and racial diversity. The study also raises questions about how ethnic relations are problematised, meaning what perspectives, what concepts, theories and practical methods are used in various time-periods to enable learning about ethnic diversity? Results show that course-content in terms of literature and other teaching material is poorly developed throughout the years, and ethnic and racial perspectives on social issues tend to be ‘side-lined’, thus not integrated into the general course-content.

    "Hela världen på vår tröskel": lokala reaktioner på en utlokaliserad flyktingförläggning2008Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis describes, conceptualizes and analyzes local reactions to the establishment of a refugee center in a small, remote mining community in Malmliden, rural Sweden, in the early 1990s. The purpose of the study was to explore and describe the local and wider contexts in which the reactions took place and to understand reactions in relation to these contexts. The study combined qualitative interviews, participant observation and the analysis of texts from different sources: daily press, historical and policy documents. Twenty-seven persons were included in the interview study (nineteen respondents and eight key infor-mants). Interviews with the nineteen respondents (nine men and ten women) were based on a semi-structured interview manual and were carried out during the winter of 1993 and the spring of 1994. Theo-retical frames and concepts were chosen in an elaborative way that was suitable for the empirical findings that gradually developed. In short, theoretical considerations that focus on social and political processes of inclusion and exclusion, ethnic relations and categorizations and the interplay between the social and the individual frame the analysis. The analysis is more closely informed by perspectives on how the atti-tudes toward the asylum seeker (as an immigrant but also as a welfare-state client), as a representation of “the other”, are socially produced.

    This study revealed that the inhabitants had dual reactions to the localized refugee center in Malm-liden. The reactions could neither be characterised as positive nor negative. They were summarized as ambivalent and were expressed spatially and socially. The spatial aspects include a number of inhabitants’ positive experiences of the refugee center as something that brought vitality to the slumbering neighbor-hood, while others thought of the refugee center as something disturbing and displaced. The social aspects involved a number of inhabitant’s embrace of the refugee center and the asylum seekers, whereas others distance themselves from the center and the refugees. While some inhabitants were enriched by the con-tact with asylum seekers, others dissociated themselves from the refugees and other inhabitants who were involved with the refugee centre. Some of the reactions were expressed as resistance. These reactions were mostly expressed latently, toward the authorities or local Policy makers and not directly toward the refugees or the refugee center The inhabitants blamed the establishment of the refugee center and those employed there for the poor state of things because they represented symbols of change and uncertainty. Therefore, initially the resistance could not be understood as rooted in emotional antipathy toward refu-gees as a (ethnic) group or as individuals, but rather as resistance against a perceived intrusion into the neighborhood autonomy. However, the strategies of the inhabitants were avoidance of contact with the refugee center and the stigmatization of the refugees. Therefore, the actions of resistance resulted in a racialization of place and ethnic segregation. The dual reactions of the inhabitants were contextual, and in which local as well as national circumstances played a considerable role in shaping the inhabitants’ experiences. At both national and local levels, the attitudes and practices directed toward asylum seekers and refugees were ambivalent. The reasons for the local acceptance of asylum seekers were ambivalent, and in which both actions of solidarity and economic considerations came into play. An external circum-stance influenced expectations and reactions to the refugee center was an ambivalent refugee policy which aimed to integrate the asylum seeker with a normalized habitat but with an institutional framing, which clearly made the asylum seeker into a client. Another external factor was the welfare state position of the asylum seeker, as he or she was positioned in an ambivalent juridical, social and political position. The overall conclusion is that the positions of the asylum seekers in the neighborhood of Malmliden were further stressed as welfare state clients and not as ordinary neighbors. A concluding image is that the contextual ambivalent positioning of the asylum seekers was reflected in the way the inhabitants regarded the asylum seekers as others in the neighborhood community.

    The Swedish Welfare-State's unnoticed helpers-Local support to Asian Seasonal Migrant Berry-pickers in distress2015Inngår i: Arbeit, Migration und Soziale Arbeit / [ed] T. Geisen, M. Ottersbach, Wiesbaden: Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden , 2015, s. 395-413Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Every summer and fall, thousands of seasonal migrant workers travel cross the world to pick berries in Scandinavia, led by the expectations of returning to the nation of residency with an improvement of their financial situation. The processes behind the migration-movement and berry-industry’s import of workers must partly be viewed through the lenses of globalisation of capital opening up for a global labour-market, but which also enforces global division of economy in which levels of global inequality continues to be high. Through temporary berry-picking labour in Sweden the migrant workers struggle to make improvements of their living-standard in their country of residency, while they simultaneously solve a quest for labour which the Swedes are reluctant to do.
