    ‘There is a fear of not being SUPER knowledgeable’: social workers striving to enhance children’s participation in the assessment process for disability support2024In: European Journal of Social Work, ISSN 1369-1457, E-ISSN 1468-2664, p. 1-13Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is a need for more knowledge about how to enhance children’s participation in the assessment process when applying for support in accordance with the Swedish Disability Act (SDA). Here, Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) has been highlighted as a successful way of letting children have a say in matters that concern their everyday lives. This study examines, from social workers’ perspectives, how increased participation can be made possible for children with disabilities during the process of decision-making and planning for support. Based on focus group interviews (N = 17) and individual interviews (N = 11) the findings reveal that the social worker shows a readiness to listen to children’s voices. However, they experience a range of both facilitating, but predominantly complicating, factors when meeting with the child and their parents. It is argued that the social workers’ professional discretion to some extent is influenced by the prevailing organisational culture, where a permissive work climate and proactive leadership are attributed great importance.

    The self-referral affordances of school-based social work support: a case study2017In: European Journal of Social Work, ISSN 1369-1457, E-ISSN 1468-2664, Vol. 20, no 6, p. 869-881Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    School-based social work can reach children at risk through the promotion of children’s participation in seeking support. Drawing on Gibson’s theory of affordances, the aim of this interview-based study was to identify affordances for self-referral associated with school-based social work support. Results reveal three affordances facilitating children’s self-initiated contact: (i) the day-to-day presence of social workers in the school environment supports investment in relationships, (ii) use of communication technologies facilitates contact and (iii) the visibility of the social workers’ practice encourages contact-initiation. Common to all three affordances are the accessibility of the social workers, and the generation of trust.

    Construction of service users in strategic collaboration including mental health and social services, and service user organisations: [Konstruktionen av brukare i strategisk samverkan mellan psykiatri, socialtjänst och brukarorganisationer]2020In: European Journal of Social Work, ISSN 1369-1457, E-ISSN 1468-2664, Vol. 23, no 4, p. 594-605, article id UNSP 1589426Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Terms used to refer to people who use welfare services have been under change and are under continuous debate. Here, seven analytical categories from terms used in 40 mental health strategic collaboration meetings including human service organisations representatives and service user organisations representatives are analysed to study the construction of the service user in mental health. The categories were set up in relation to characteristics, how and when they were used, and who was using them. Results showed that service user representatives and professionals shared some categories; some categories differed in how they were used and had dissimilar starting points, while one group exclusively used some. The use of categories could also be divided into a collective and an individual perspective. Participants agreed on service users having complex needs but not essentially different. Service user representatives emphasised a structural perspective, a society unequipped to meet service users’ needs while respecting their citizenship. Professionals more often used the individual perspective, where the troubles service users faced were put on an individual level. Their categories were better established and thus more resilient to resistance. Most prominent were issues on service users’ independence, accountability, and collective or individual perspective.
