    Tillsynskompetens: En studie om kunskap och erfarenhet hos inspektörer2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study concerns the work carried out at the Health and Social Care Inspectorate (IVO), concerning the treatment of complaints towards social services. After many years of conducting supervision of social care and hearing about an "auditing competence", I wanted to find out what this entails. This study aims to describe and analyse how the competence of IVO inspectors is put to use at work. The study contributes to our understanding of how knowledge and experience is used at work, and makes clear how different competencies can collaborate as well as how knowledge about the execution of a work activity can be conveyed and developed. The research is carried out through a case study, and the empirical data has been collected through surveys, observations, and focus group interviews. Interviews and observations were carried out with two work groups of inspectors at each of the two IVO divisions. The participant selection is based on the research questions and with consideration for the scope of the dissertation. The results show that the inspectors often stress the importance of a professional background in the areas, which they supervise. However, the results also show that the experience and knowledge which inspectors acquire from their work at IVO has the largest impact when they are involved in the treatment of complaints. The results further make clear that the composition of work groups has significance for the work task they carry out, as different competencies focus on different parts of a complaint. This study also sheds light on the importance of well integrated learning in the work as a foundation for the development of their particular auditing competence.

    "Som att skratta åt någons bilder...": Elevers erfarenheter av förebyggande arbete mot psykisk ohälsa i mellanstadiet2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Previous research talks about the importance of working preventive and health promotion with early-age students to counter mental illness. The National Board of Health and Education refers to the fact that the school has a responsibility to prevent good health in the students. Previous research also shows that there are several different methods that professionals in the school's areas can use in their work to lay the foundation for a good health in the students. Despite all the methods developed, research shows that the number of people with mental illness continues to escalate. The purpose of this study was to examine the students' experiences and views of the methods used by the school in their preventive work against bullying, violations and exclusion. The aim was also to investigate whether the methods were in line with the school's expected outcomes in the students, following the prevention of mental health related to bullying, violations and exclusion. The idea was to see how and if the methods were developed and what the students who are on their way to high school consider the changes that have taken place. The study was conducted with six semi-structured qualitative interviews. Respondents were a professional educator and a professional curator and four students at the age of 16-17 years old. The interviews were analyzed by IPA as the analytical method. The result of the study showed that the professionals work with methods that the students did not consider to be adequate. This is because the students are not aware of why the methods are used. The students also consider that the methods are not adapted to their needs. More methods are needed that students themselves may develop, and that professionals need to be better at following up the methods that the school chooses to introduce to the students.

    Bristande Föräldraskap: en studie om föräldrabedömning och förutsättningar för samverkan mellan två instanser kring föräldraskapet2009Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is a study about parents and parenting. Our purpose with this study is to see how rep-resentatives from two authorities make valuation of parents that lack parenting skills. The chosen authorities are an authority and one performer of task. Our questions are: defined by the authori-ties – what do good parenting mean? Which factors are considered in an assessment of parents? What kind of guidelines/ work models do the organisations have? To what extent do these two authorities collaborate around support and assessment? This is an empirical study, were we have interviewed representatives from two authorities, in total four groups. We have used hermeneutic interpretation to look at the empirical material. Our analy-sis is built on the system theory, intersectional analysis and collaboration theory. The terms we examined were good parenting and good enough. The view of the term good enough depended on if the term was in Swedish or in English. Overall, good parenting is when the emotional and physical care is in relation to the needs of the child. The result we found was that these two authorities share the same view on the terms that we ex-amine. Further on we describe the condition for collaboration and the meaning of reaching for the same “language”. Our conclusion is that these terms, especially good enough, is very subjective and that it´s hard to write down criteria’s. This because it´s all about people. This study also shows that the authorities work together around people. In the discussion describes the social pedagogues’ approach that includes a salutogen perspective, intersectional analysis and empowerment.

    Människa, organisation, ADB-system: Mot en människoorienterad syn på systemutveckling1992Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The background for this thesis is the author's experience of working as a system analyst during the years 1975-1081. During this period, the system development work can be characterized as expert-oriented, very often leading to the construction of large, integrated EDP-systems. The social consequences of the computerization were unplanned and unforeseen. In the first part of this thesis different system development approaches are presented and analyzed. These approaches are "traditional system development", "socio-technically oriented system development (e g Mumford's ETHICS-model), "a perspective of different interest groups", and finally, "modern system development". These approaches are analyzed from a human-oriented perspective emphasizing the consequences of each tradition regarding possibilities to develop human resources in the work situation. In the second part of the thesis the human-oriented perspective (the MOA-perspective) and the MOA-model are developed. Leavitt's well-known model is taken as a departure for the construction of the MOA-model (MOA= Människa (Human Being), Organisation (Organization), ADB-system (EDP-system). The human-oriented perspective is primarily a theoretical perspective in the field of sociology.  Knowledge, mostly from literature studies, has been put together in a logical framework reflecting the interplay between the three levels of analysis "ideas of coordination and steering", "means for cooperation and steering" (e g EDP-systems and organization structure) and "possibilities of development in work for the employee's". The MOA-model illuminates this logic in a wider context of the enterprise. With the use of the MOA-perspective special parts of the MOA-model are focused upon. The theoretical starting-point has been the basis for the development of some practical applications: a structure for development of the enterprise, and a method for analyzing changes within work situations ("job analysis").

    Samverkan på lika villkor?: En studie om professionellas upplevelser av samverkan mellan två verksamheter som arbetar med personer med neuropsykiatriska funktionsnedsättningar2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The study aims to study professional experience of the conditions that exist for collaboration while working with people with neuropsychiatric disorders. The professionals are working with two different occupations in different organizations and collaborate on the target audience. The method we used is a qualitative research interview. The informants consist of six professionals working with neuropsychiatric disorders. The results were analyzed using new institutional organization theory, the concepts of business domain, integration, professionals, discretion, and with the help of literature from systematic review and the background chapter. 

    The conclusions we can draw from the results are:

    • Collaborative process works well and is well integrated between the two studied organizations. 
    • Collaboration is built on the basis of common goals and clear roles and responsibilities. Preconditions for collaboration are sufficient resources, collaboration forums, a driving force, understanding and personal commitment.
    • All professions / occupations are important in the work of people with neuropsychiatric disorders and the professions / occupations that have the medical responsibility have a higher and more dominant role.
    • Case Management could create better conditions for cooperation between the two organizations, as the working model creates better opportunities for professions / professional groups to communicate about specific individuals.
    • Collusion on target is important the individuals have complex needs and a cohesive support is essential to make sure that the individual's needs are met in the best way.

    Existentialismen är en sociologi: en essä om sociologi i en fragmenterad samtid2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this essay is to discuss the base of sociology from an existentialistic perspective. The discussion takes it's position in the debate on the crisis of sociology, and aligns with Alvin Gouldner's understanding of the crisis. Gouldner believed that the crisis of sociology was mirrored in a sociological method that failed to describe the social reality that it meant to describe; a lack in self-criticism and self-reflexivity, a lack in self-containment in relation to state interests and a lack in moral engagement. This raises a number of questions, which I discuss in the essay. What is the role of sociology in our society? How shall we form a method that responds to the social reality that we sociologists aim to describe? How can we make sociology more moral?

    Existentialism offers a starting point to describe these questions. I argue that the existentialistic description of man as essence carries implications for the social science. By constituting a critique of a computable moral, existentialism points at the necessity of a standing self-criticism and dialogue. An existentialistic description of man as non-essence carries implications for the theory and method of sociology. Man's possibility of radical exceeding of himself means the impossibility to reach theories that describe reality as it is. At the same time, method and theory are necessary to create knowledge about social phenomenon. I read existentialism as an imperative for a sociology that is reflexive in the sense a) a reflexivity in relation to the basic presumptions (value philosophical and ontological) that effect our sociological examinations b) a self-reflexivity that amount to an understanding of the scientists own role relation to his study and the object being studied. Furthermore, I read existentialism as an imperative for a radicalization of dialogue as method.

    Ska vi ses backstage?: Hur barn förhåller sig till sina föräldrars missbruksproblematik2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The study aims to investigate different descriptions of children of parents with substance abusive problems from the socialworkers descriptions about the work of supportgroups. Based on these descriptions, we want to highlight the factors that affect these children in a positive and negative way. This is done through semi-structured qualitative interviews of socialworkers in various supportgroups in Västra Götaland. We used an interviewguide, which was based on the study's purpose and issues. The results shows that the children of substanceabusive parents benefit from a supportive network, to meet other children in similar home situations and also foster a wider perspective of their situation through a supportgroup. Most children seem to try to keep their parents substanceabusive problems as a secret or defend their parent's behaviors in different ways. It is thus clear that children are often aware of the norms of the society when it comes to addiction and sobriety, as well as their parent´s discrepance from these norms. Many of the children referred to in our study is taking responsibility for their family situations and are living under unpredictable and sometimes turbulent conditions. A dilemma may accurre where the children themselves must decide to either continue to keep the problems as a secret or to seek support and with that reveal the hidden problems.

    Swedish Children's Beliefs about Agency in Family, School and Peer Situations2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to examine children's beliefs with regard to their agency (i.e., to know and predict your own actions and the consequences of them), in different contexts (family, school and peer-situations). Interviews were conducted with 103 ten-year-old Swedish children. Vignettes were presented to the children and their answers were written down for subsequent thematic analysis. Children think of their agency differently depending upon which context they find themselves in. The contexts where children believe most in their agency are found in situations with peers, and the contexts where they believe least in their agency are experienced with teachers. In situations with parents children think they would react with more resistance than with peers and teachers.

    Att mötas: Bemötandet börjar i väntrummet2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to receve a deeper knowledge of what socialworkers find important in the meeting of people with abuse-/addictionproblems. The study is solely based on the thoughts and experiences of these socialworkers.

    "Det kan hända att jag kommer fram till att det är något annat som behövs än det du önskar dig": -En studie om hur socialsekreterare hanterar frågor om delaktighet och etik2012Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    It is a qualitative study that describes and analyzes how professionals deal with social issues of inclusiveness and ethics in the investigation of cases involving interventions for adolescents. The focus is on the strategies that staff in social services expressed in terms of obstacles and opportunities for working participatively and especially when it comes to dealing with ethical dilemmas that may arise.

        The method used was qualitative research interviews. Five social workers from two different municipalities were interviewed and the material is analyzed on the basis of socio-cultural theory and organizational theory. Themes that emerged were participation, ethics, discretion and flexibility, collaboration, organization, skills and time. The main obstacles that have emerged in the study are that those who work in social services have had been difficulties to fully create participation due to various factors. The study has shown that organizational factors, limited room for maneuver, and time has a huge impact and can be seen as a threat towards quality and job involvement. The main conditions that have emerged in the study is that discretion, knowledge and experience as an opportunity to create participation.

    Abstract [en]

    Domestic violence is a big public health problem. It can happen to all woman regardless of age, social status, geographic location, religion or ethnicity and it is one of the biggest threats to women's lives and health (Amnesty, 2004). The entire life situation for these women is affected and we think it is important to increase the knowledge and understanding of the phenomenon in the whole society, both for professionals and individuals. The purpose of this study was to use three autobiography and describe abused women´s experiences and perceptions of what was the deciding factor that they left their violent partner and which support the woman describes as the most valuable and desirable during the breakup. We used a qualitative content analysis based on exit theory and the concept of significant others. The results show that the deciding factors for the breakup are women´s children and fear for their own life. According to the woman is a combination of support from families and professionals the most helpful. The result also shows that professional support often is absent, women had wished for more help from the community

    ”Man hjälps åt, det blir ju lite så att hela familjen blir involverad”: En kvalitativ studie om uppväxten som biologiskt barn i familjehem2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Familjehemsplacering är den vanligaste placeringsformen i Sverige när barn av olika anledningar inte kan bo kvar i sitt hem. Biologiska barn blir mer eller mindre delaktiga i familjehemsuppdraget. Studiens intresseområde inriktar sig på dem, då det finns en risk att de lämnas utanför en utvärdering och att deras synpunkter inte beaktas. Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur en familjehemsplacering berör biologiska barn i ett familjehem och vilka upplevelser och erfarenheter de har av att växa upp i en familj som tar emot familjehemsplaceringar. Frågeställningarna studien utgått ifrån är; Hur ser vuxna personer som vuxit upp i familjehem på familjehemsuppdraget ur ett barns perspektiv? Vilka erfarenheter och uppfattningar finns kring delaktighet och påverkan i familjehemmets vardag? och Hur beskriver de sin syn på uppväxten som biologiskt barn i ett familjehem sedan de blivit vuxna? Studien har en kvalitativ ansats och datamaterialet har samlats in genom en semistrukturerad intervjumetod, med fyra informanter som vuxit upp med familjehemsplaceringar. Studiens utgångspunkt är att få fram upplevelser och erfarenheter som kan ge en fördjupad möjlighet att få fram uppfattningar från de som vuxit upp som biologiskt barn i ett familjehem. Resultatet analyseras utifrån en tematisk analys. Teman som framkom var; delaktighet, ansvar, barnets perspektiv samt råd och vägledning. Informanterna uppgav en ambivalent grundsyn till familjehemsuppdraget, då det varken var övervägande negativa eller positiva erfarenheter de fått under uppväxten. Analysen visade även på svårighet att avgöra om uppfattningarna kom från ett barns perspektiv eller om det var erfarenheter utifrån en vuxens perspektiv. Diskussionen behandlar råd till familjehemsföräldrar och professionella inom socialt arbete samt etiska aspekter gällande biologiska barns delaktighet i familjehemsvård.

    “Vi måste hela tiden lyssna, vara nyfikna, möta och nyansera”: En kvalitativ studie om socialarbetares inställningar till våldsbejakande extremism2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien var att undersöka socialarbetares inställningar till att möta så kallad våldsbejakande extremism. I studien användes en kvalitativ metod där sex verksamma socialarbetare intervjuades. Det insamlade materialet analyserades med hjälp av tidigare forskning, Axel Honneth’s erkännandeteori, Howard S Becker’s stämplingsteori samt med hjälp av Frame-begreppet. Studien gav ett splittrat resultat men visade bland annat att socialarbetare ser våldsbejakande extremism som en problematik som beror på faktorer som utanförskap, identitetssökande och tillhörighet. Socialarbetare anser att det sociala arbetets ansvar framförallt är att arbeta förebyggande för att individer inte ska hamna i våldsbejakande miljöer. Att samtala, lyssna och inte avvisa beskrivs som ett tillvägagångssätt för att bemöta våldsbejakande åsikter och budskap. Socialarbetare beskriver både en känsla av att vara trygga och otrygga inför att möta våldsbejakande extremism. Att använda samtalet som verktyg och se individen bakom handlingen beskrivs som faktorer som gör att socialarbetare känner sig trygga inför att möta, eller eventuellt möta våldsbejakande extremism. Känsla av otrygghet härleds bland annat till rädslan för att själv bli ett offer för våldshandlingar på grund av sitt arbete.

    Jag vill känna att jag lever, veta att jag räcker till: Mammors berättelse om relationen till sina barn utifrån utsatthet av våld i nära relation2019Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien var att undersöka mammors berättelser om sin upplevda relation till sina barn under och efter tiden de var våldsutsatta, samt hur de upplever stödet de fått genom en gruppverksamhet riktat till barn och föräldrar som varit utsatta för våld i nära relation. Studien bygger på en kvalitativ metod där semistrukturerade intervjuer genomförts med fyra mammor som tillsammans med sina barn varit utsatta för våld i nära relation. Materialet har analyserats genom en tematisk metod. Materialet har således organiserats och strukturerats utifrån teman som gemensamt framträtt i intervjuerna. Analysen av studiens resultat mynnade ut i nio teman; att kontrollera situationen, att känna frihet i det låsta, symtom, att komma varandra närmre när bubblan spricker, ett annat perspektiv på det viktiga i vardagen, maktlöshet, i skuggan av våldet, en hjälpande hand och tid. Sammanfattningsvis tyder resultatet på att mammorna är kreativa och resursfulla för att skydda sina barn. De har en önskan om att uppnå ett bra eller perfekt föräldraskap. Mammorna vill inte ses som misslyckade mammor. Barnens behov behöver alltid finnas i centrum. Hur goda intentioner mammorna än har medför det trots allt negativa konsekvenser för barnen både under tiden våldet pågår och efter separation från våldsutövaren. Mammorna tolkas uppvisa en medvetenhet för hur våldet har påverkat på olika sätt, vilket är en förutsättning för att senare kunna tillgodogöra sig stödinsatser. Att få möjlighet att bearbeta och berätta om sina upplevelser tillsammans med personer som befunnit sig i en liknande situation tycks i slutändan vara helande för barnens utveckling på många olika sätt. En del barn uppvisade dock reaktioner under tiden stödet mottogs, vilket skulle kunna vara en del av den bearbetningsprocess som startar i samband med mottagandet av stöd och återupplivade minnen.

    Jämställdhet, islam och framtidsdrömmar: en intervjustudie om muslimska gymnasieflickor2007Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Ofta hörs kritiska röster kring islam som en kvinnoförtryckande religion, ibland till och med som en religion som vill föra oss tillbaka till ett förgånget samhälle. Samtidigt finns muslimska kvinnor som menar att det är just deras tro som stärkt dem som kvinnor och som människor. Underlaget till denna rapport är unga muslimska flickors berättelser om sina liv i Sverige. Skola, fritid och framtid står i fokus i våra samtal, men i vårt möte med flickorna återges olika livssituationer, drömmar och tankar. I första kapitlet presenterar vi vår studie och vårt tillvägagångssätt. Vi har gjort kvalitativa intervjuer och använder oss av ett intersektionellt perspektiv på religion och kön. I kapitel två visar vi en komplex bild av olika värderingar, hållningar och förklaringsmönster. I detta kapitel har vi låtit flickorna själva träda fram i texten genom ganska långa citat och ge sin syn på livet som muslimsk flicka. På så sätt träder nyanser fram i materialet och bäddar för en djupare förståelse för olika sätt att leva som muslim i Sverige. I del tre diskuterar vi hur flickorna förhåller sig till religion i ett vidare perspektiv. I vår studie blir tre olika muslimska diskurser - en global, en kulturell och en sekulär – synliga.

    Orsaker till ett långvarigt mottagande av försörjningsstöd i samspel med arbetsmetoder hos arbetsmarknadsenheten2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the study is to identify causes among people with a long-term reception of support support and to gain knowledge about whether working methods at a labor market unit are designed in conjunction with the causes that arise. There are different definitions of what a long-term receipt of economic support is, in this study, a long-term recipient is considered to be the one who has been active in economic support for ten months or more. This is in accordance with the provisions of Socialstyrelsen (2014). The study focuses on one mediumsized municipality in Sweden that is considered representative to the purpose of the study. The study has used a mixture of a quantitative and qualitative method. With the quantitative method, data-material has been obtained at the beginning of March 2018 from a documentation system by name Procapita which contained 198 clients based on age, sex and causes of clients with a long-term receipt. The data-material has been converted and compiled into different charts on Excel statistics program. The results of the charts show seven causes amongst these clients. Unemployment and sick clients with a medical certificate or medical opinion were the most common causes. Then there were the sick without a basis, meaning that they were only sick at present with neither a medical certificate nor a medical opinion, then came drug abusers, various causes that included full-time work, summer jobs, unaccompanied minors and those who were guilty or imprisoned. The last cause for a long-term reception was job seekers. In connection with the qualitative method, a semi-structured interview was conducted with a social worker from the municipality. Before the interview was conducted, a plan was made on how the questions would be formulated to generate knowledge to the purpose of the study. The interview was recorded and transferred from speech to writing. The result of the interview was that working methods were adapted to the individual's needs at present. By presenting causes that have emerged in the study, focus has then been placed on whether these interact with working methods. The result shows that working methods are not designed for a cause per se, instead there are several explanations for why a cause has become and it is after those explanations and after the individuals needs at present and what the individual person thinks is important in how social workers design their working methods.

    “It's About Time!”: Company Support for Fathers' Entitlement to Reduced Work Hours in Sweden2016In: Social Politics: International Studies in Gender, State and Society, ISSN 1072-4745, E-ISSN 1468-2893, Vol. 23, no 1, p. 142-167Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Fifteen nations offer fathers the right to reduce work hours to care for children. Incorporating a gender perspective, this study uses a mixed-methods approach to examine the implementation of this policy in the first nation to offer it, Sweden. It investigates whether the institutional and cultural environment exerts pressure on companies to facilitate fathers' hours reduction, companies' levels of support for fathers' use of this entitlement and correlates of company support. The persistence of the “male model of work” appears to be an important barrier to implementation of a policy that offers promise in offering fathers time to care.

    Konsten att skapa mening: En studie om kreativitetens och skapandets möjligheter för socialpedagogiska målgrupper2012Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    We have written a qualitative study with a phenomenological and a hermeneutical approach. We have collected data using semi-structured interviews. The basis of the study's theoretical framework is based on May's and Marcuse's explanation of art and creativity as a general human, meaningful and transcendent practice. We interviewed staff at three non-therapeutic institutions for women suffering from domestic violence, psychiatric vulnerable people and homeless women. The study aims to investigate how staff defines art and creativity, the risk and opportunities creative activities means for users and about the activities enables empowerment for users. We also examined the social consequences of art and creativity, for both users and staff. The study results and analysis show that art and creativity gives the users a range of possibilities. Art and creativity provides opportunities for fellowship, knowledge and acknowledgment, a break from the outside world, processing and to some extent empowerment. The social policy implications of art and creativity are that they liberate the institutions from hierarchies. The institutions offer users worthy and equal protection zones, were the staff, in turn, can put down repressive power, rules and rigid roles. By contrast, the art and creativity don’t lead to social change for the target groups in question outside the institutions.

    Multidimensionell delaktighet i Namibia: En studie om elevers upplevelse av delaktighet i den namibiska skolan.2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Participation is a common concept, which is used in social pedagogy to study human relations. However, there are many dimensions of participation and the concept can be both a subjective and objective meaning. According to the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), all children should have the right to go to school. Additionally, the CRC points out that the school should create participation for the children. To feel involved can thus be regarded as a human right, but how participated does the pupils experience themselves?

    This study aimed to study and analyze how pupils' participation is emphasized in the school environment from a pupils' perspective, both in class with teachers and outside of the classroom among the pupils themselves. The study has been conducted in a municipal Namibian school using participant observation, semi-structured interviews and a micro ethnographic methodological approach.

    The results of the study are consistent to some extent with previous research. Pupils experience very social and informal participation among each other, but the school fails to create relational pedagogy and participation in the classroom. The lack of influence is affecting the pupils study motivation, which in turn is perceived as bad study performance by the teachers and they therefore get punished. Unlike the results of previous research, this study shows that socio-economic status does not affect pupil performance. This probably has to do with the fact that the school compensates pupils with lower socio-economic status by providing affordable accommodation, free food and school uniforms. The results of this study can be used to conduct similar research.

    Delaktighet i skolkontexten: Personal inom elevhälsan om elever med neuropsykiatriska funktionsvariationer2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    School and its significant role is a common subject in the early discussion of the social pedagogy field, and are still topical. International and national policies states that the school environment should be including and that the student welfare service is supposed to work preventative and conduce participation for all pupils in school related circumstances. Pupils with neuropsychiatric diversities tend to be neglected in the school context, which is the main reason for the selection of this issue.

    The aim of this study is to examine how staff within the student welfare service perceives circumstances regarding participation amongst pupils with neuropsychiatric diversities.

    With inspiration from the hermeneutic and phenomenological theory of science, a qualitative method has been used to corral information. The data is processed with an abductive technique, based on seven semi structured interviews with staff working in the student welfare services.

    The result is presented with a sociocultural view of understanding and the participation conception is applied to describe the situation. Inclusive communions appear to be a complex phenomenon and the conclusion emphasizes several vital aspects concerning conditions of participation such as individual circumstances, pupil interaction, teacher’s approaches and collaboration between professions. Beneficial variables are the project of working with basic values, that pupils and teachers have good relationships and coaction in regard of school based professions and with external community actors. Knowledge deficiency and limitations in the room for manoeuvre are considered to be preventing.

    Trygghet och vikten av ett socialt sammanhang: En kvalitativ studie om hur frivilligorganisationer arbetar med papperslösa2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: To obtain reliable statics over the number of undocumented migrants is very difficult, precisely because they are undocumented and live in hiding. The estimated number of undocumented migrants in Sweden is between 10,000 to 50,000, which is a large group of people who live under very difficult living conditions. It is this group that the essay will shed the light on, based on the work of voluntary organizations.

    Objective: The aim of the study is to examine the work of voluntary organizations' participation promotion work to support undocumented people.

    Method: I have used a qualitative research method, in the form of semi-structured interviews. Four employees of a voluntary organization were interviewed. The interviews used the same interview guide, with room for supplementary questions. The theoretical approach has been the KASAM, and the concepts of participation and social support. I have categorized, coded, thematised and analyzed the data collected on the basis of my theoretical perspective as well as the previous research.

    Results: The results demonstrate that the organization works extensively with creating security for the undocumented migrants. Partly by that the undocumented migrants should feel that the organization's premises are a safe place for them, but also by allowing as much of the business to be predictable. They also offer practical support to the undocumented, in the form of clothes and food, but also access to health care. This demonstrates by cooperation with other organizations, but also by other people, who choose to contribute. The organization also tries to create a social context for the undocumented, and press the importance that all people feel good to be part of a context. Participation is something they work with on a daily basis, in many different ways, including getting them to participate in all activities and have the opportunity to be volunteers.

    ”Varje situation som anhörig respektive närstående är unik": En studie om implementeringen av 10§ 5kap SoL och samverkan kring anhöriga till människor med missbruksproblematik2012Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien är att se om och i sådana fall hur 10§ kap5 SoL har påverkat stödet för anhöriga till människor med missbruksproblematik samt att se hur samverkan mellan organisationer används för att underlätta för de anhöriga. I och med att dessa anhöriga är en tyst målgrupp krävs det samverkan för att nå dem då alla inte är i kontakt med socialtjänst eller andra myndigheter.

     Fem kvalitativa halvstrukturerade intervjuer genomfördes med sex personer som arbetar med anhörigstöd på olika sätt. Materialet transkriberades och analyserades sedan genom analysmodellen grounded theory genom att jag hittade olika kategorier delvis utifrån vad informanterna sade och delvis utifrån studiens syfte, efter det hittade jag underkategorier.

    Resultatet analyserades med stöd utav samverkansteori och implementeringsteori, och visar att så länge samverkan används för den anhöriges bästa fungerar den bra då stödet blir individuellt anpassat efter dennes behov. Det är inte många utav informanterna som har kunnat uttala sig om någon nackdel med samverkan. Flera av informanterna har inte påverkats av lagen fast alla arbetar med anhörigstöd. Den skillnaden som kan ses är att vissa kommuner skapat en ny tjänst efter att lagen kom, men det visar ändå att implementeringen inte har lyckats helt. Resultaten visar också att det kan finnas ett samband mellan samverkan och implementering, för om fler professioner s vet om lagen desto bättre går samverkan mellan verksamheterna, då alla vet vad lagen innebär och kan samverka utifrån den.

    Lika men ändå skillnad…: En studie om hemtjänstpersonals arbete kring delaktighet och bemötande runt vårdtagare med alkoholmissbruk.2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien var att undersöka alkoholmissbrukets betydelse för arbetet med vårdtagares möjligheter till delaktighet samt vilket bemötande hemtjänstpersonalen har mot vårdtagare med alkoholmissbruk. Frågeställningarna var; hur skiljde sig arbetet med delaktighet, enligt hemtjänstpersonal, mellan vårdtagare med alkoholmissbruk och vårdtagare utan alkoholmissbruk? Hur såg möjligheter till delaktighet ut för alkoholmissbrukande vårdtagare inom hemtjänsten, enligt hemtjänstpersonal? Hur såg, enligt hemtjänstpersonal, bemötandet ut till vårdtagare med alkoholmissbruk i förhållande till de vårdtagarna utan alkoholmissbruk?

    Den teoretiska utgångspunkten var teorier kring delaktighet och bemötande. Exempel på teorier kring delaktighet är att en individ måste själv uppleva sig som delaktig för att vara delaktig. Delaktighet handlar om ett samspel mellan individ och omgivning. Bemötande definieras bland annat som något som sker i en relation och i mötet mellan människor.

    Det empiriska materialet består av fem intervjuer med undersköterskor som arbetar inom hemtjänst. Bearbetningen av datamaterialet gjordes genom kategorisering, kodning och tematisering som sedan analyserades. Slutsatserna är att vårdtagarna har bra möjligheter till att vara delaktiga med vissa begränsningar beroende av alkoholmissbruk. Alla informanter vill att alla vårdtagare ska behandlas lika, trots detta framkommer skillnader i både arbetet med delaktighet och bemötande till vårdtagare utan alkoholmissbruks fördel. En annan slutsats är att hemtjänstpersonal saknar kunskap för att på ett professionellt sätt arbeta med vårdtagare med alkoholmissbruk.

    Elevers kontakt med elevhälsan: en kvantitativ studie där elevernas syn står i fokus2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    De senaste åren har det uppmärksammats att psykisk ohälsa bland barn och ungdomar har ökat. Det är viktigt att barn och ungdomar med psykisk ohälsa får hjälp och stöd i ett tidigt skede, det kan annars få allvarliga konsekvenser. Skolan och elevhälsan har en viktig roll förelever och deras utveckling, de har även i uppdrag att stödja elever med psykisk ohälsa och att arbeta förebyggande. Tidigare forskning visar på att ungdomar väljer att inte vända sig till elevhälsan eller andra professionella vid psykisk ohälsa. Det har även visat sig i tidigare forskning att det finns bristfällig kunskap gällande elevernas egna syn på elevhälsan. Vi ville med denna studie öka kunskapen kring elever och deras syn på elevhälsan som arbetar på skolan, samt vad de önskar att den ska finnas till för och på vilket sätt. Huvudsyftet var att få kunskap om hur en elevhälsa är främjande för elever och för att få reda på det måste elevernas egna syn och önskemål stå i fokus. För att undersöka detta användes i studien en kvantitativ ansats med enkätundersökning som metod. Deltagarna i studien bestod av 126 elever i årskurs 9 från två olika skolor i Västra Götalands län. Studiens resultat visade på att majoriteten av eleverna i årskurs 9 var medvetna om att elevhälsan fanns. Däremot var det ett stort antal av eleverna som endast var svagt bekanta med elevhälsan då de endast visste lite om deras arbete och vilka som ingick i elevhälsan. Eleverna skulle främst vända sig till sina informella kontakter som föräldrar och vänner vid negativa känslor. Majoriteten av eleverna uppgav att de inte skulle vända sig till någon professionell vid negativa känslor. Många av eleverna uppgav att de tyckte att det var viktigt att elevhälsan fanns för att kunna prata med någon. Procentuellt tyckte de flesta av eleverna att elevhälsan skulle finnas till för att prata om jobbiga händelser i deras liv. Eleverna önskade främst ta kontakt med elevhälsan genom att gå dit. Många av eleverna hade någon gång undvikit att ta kontakt med elevhälsan fast de egentligen känt ett behov.

    A Coherence of Identities or an Identity of Coherence?: A Review of the Recent Discussion on Well-Being, Social Identities and Integration in a Multicultural Context2015In: Building Barriers and Bridges: Interculturalism in the 21st Century / [ed] Gourlay, Jonathan & Strohschen,Gabriele, Inter-Disciplinary Press, 2015, 1, p. 11-19Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A principal element in the process of integration is identity. The ability of immigrants to integrate the cultural identity of their country of origin and the cultural identity of their new country to form a coherent self-concept has been found to be positively related to various forms of psychological well-being. But there is a lack of consensus among researchers regarding the optimal integrated identity structure. While supporters of the acculturative approach argue that a strong identification to both the original and the new groups maximizes well-being,others insist more on the importance of maintaining a coherent identity, regardless of the strength of identification and regardless of the number of social identities.As most researchers in the health oriented debate on identity have focused on abicultural context, knowledge of the identity structure that promotes well-being in a multicultural surrounding is limited. The identity politics dominating mainstream multicultural discourses are theoretically grounded on the idea that humans have essential, unchanging cores that are fully formed and integrated. Within this paradigm, groups are identified by characteristics that are understood as inherently distinctive. Therefore in order to understand the process by which social identities become integrated into a concept of self an intercultural approach of the understanding of social identities and well-being is suggested. The aim of this chapter is to review the debate on the concept of coherence in relation to identity and well-being in a multicultural context and to investigate whether identity based coherence is challenged or promoted by an intercultural approach of understanding.

    The bidirectional agency in therapeutic alliance: an investigation of the relational resources between a social worker and a client in social work with young people that use drugs2016In: Nordic Youth Research Symposium: Youth Moves – Voices – Spaces – Subjectivities, Trollhättan: Högskolan Väst , 2016, p. 124-124Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Although the therapeutic effect of the alliance between the social worker and the client is widely recognized, the knowledge on what actually constitutes a successful alliance is limited. The factors at stake are mostly referred to as common factors and include the ability of the social worker to be warm, personal, caring and devoted towards the client. With a bidirectional perspective on the construct of agency Ester Goh (2015) among others has shown that the relationship between the social worker and the client could be regarded as a resource for therapeutic success that enable the client to bean active agent in the process in his or her process of change. The aim of this study is to increase the understanding of what resources a successful relationship between a socialworker and a young client carries in the respect of enabling agentic behavior in the young client. Method In a collaboration with a drug prevention program in the municipality of Ale in the south-western part of Sweden, young clients in the age between 14 and 18 will be interviewed together with their social worker regarding their mutual relationship. Rather than addressing the social issues, the interview will focus on the relationship as such in search for the narratives of the nature of their relationship. Each paired interview will be followed up by individual interviews with the social worker and the young client respectively. Expected results The study is expected to expand the knowledge on how social workers establish functional relationship with young clients, relationships that in turn represents an important resource for the voice of the young client in his or her own process of change.

    Abstract [en]

    The starting point of this study is based on a perspective of Work Integrated Learning through the social pedagogy program that has been located to the northern Kalmar county region since 2003. With the study I want to highlight which importance it provides to local organizations and their development that the education is available in the local community. The purpose of the study is to illustrate and analyze how employee's formal and informal education provides for organizational development and implementation based on a socio-cultural perspective. Another aim is to focus on the importance of social pedagogy in welfare work in the northern Kalmar county region.

    The study has a qualitative approach in which I´ve used half-structured interviews. In total, eight interviews have been conducted with business leaders and coordinators in welfare work. The selection has been made based on an ongoing study that has shown which activities have recruited most students from the social pedagogy program in the region. As a theoretical framework, a sociocultural perspective is used, focusing on the concepts,learning and communities.

    The result of the study shows that access to students is a crucial factor in meeting the skills and recruitment needs in the region. Vocational education is important for the organizations learning and organizational development, providing the possibility to build practical experience from the professional life of the students, as well as to get an analytical look at their own work. The relationship between education and the workplace can be understood from a changing labor market where the education needs updates from the field of activity and the field of activity is dependent on education based on educating.

    Marriage Migration and Multicultural Relationships2015Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    With human mobility on the rise, multicultural marriages have become noticeably more common in the past decades. The marriage market has thus expanded over time, going from being exclusively local and national to becoming increasingly global. Marriage, in turn, has become a significant factor that influences migration. This edited book looks at marriage migration and multicultural marriages from a wide range of viewpoints and takes into account the spectrum of dynamism.

    This edited book aims to deliver more information and a greater understanding of how dynamic multicultural marriages are in different societies around the world. The book includes chapters that look at the phenomenon globally but also provide views at the national and local levels.

    Gemenskap när fröken är med: en kvalitativ studie om hur lärare möjliggör inklusion2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this study, I have studied how teachers are working to enable inclusion for pupils with difficulties in social interaction without the need to have a diagnosis. Municipalities and schools work differently when it comes to students who need support. Teachers in the study agree that the work of the school around the inclusion is important. The empirical data were collected using qualitative methods through interviews with four female teachers from three different schools in two different municipalities. The analysis of the results was done by qualitative content analysis according to Lundman and Hällgren Graneheim (2008) where the theoretical basis has been participation. The results of the study show that the interviewed teachers are actively working to enable inclusion for pupils who have difficulties in social interaction. They also focus on increasing the understanding of students' differences and diverse needs by advocating that all are important just as it is. The conclusions you can make from this study is that teachers work actively and purposefully to enable inclusion and resources for this planned based on student needs. The work takes place not only at the individual level but also at group level with the whole class and school together. The diagnosis has no bearing on whether the pupil should be supported, but it may in some cases facilitate the planning of assistance

    This study is based on the collaboration processes between primary school and social services and based on how collaboration works in practice between these two organizations. Through a qualitative study in a suburb in western Sweden, we came to the conclusion how people from different professions at primary school and social services experience the interaction process and how they work together to develop collaboration. It also revealed some success factors and shortcomings in cooperation. It clearly demonstrated during the study that collaboration is a time consuming process based on good relationships. Respondents saw the collaboration as an essential resource to meet vulnerable children's needs in the best way.

    Hästunderstödd terapi: En kvalitativ studie om hästars inverkan hos flickor med psykisk ohälsa och självskadebeteende2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The study´s intention was to examine the horse assisted therapy´s support or prohibitive effects on the recovery process of girls with psychological non-suicidal self-injury behaviour. The study´s question formulations were; what aspects are supportive or prohibitive in the recovery process. A qualitative method was used to answer the questions within the study; four qualitative interviews were made as a foundation for the work. The informants were all female and over 18 years of age, who lived or had lived at a rehabilitee centre with a focus on horse assisted therapy. The result of the study presents both supportive and prohibitive effects of the treatment.

    Supportive aspects of the treatment, found in this study are; it helps to reduce anxiety and lower non-suicidal behaviour in addition lifts confidence. Through respect for horses´ ability to read various state of minds and reflect these as their own, which increases the empathic behaviour of the girls; which makes them reflect about their own behaviour and there by more aware of the consequences of their actions.

    Obstructive aspects of the treatment, found in this study are; the size of the animal and flight behaviour may cause fear of injury. An accident during a therapy session may cause mistrust regarding the effect of the therapy and may intervene with the recovery process. The bond between the horse and the girl might grow too strong, and have a negative effect on the girl when the treatment is over or if the horse dies; which would inflict the recovery process.

    With support of these results, we conclude that control is an important aspect in the recovery process of girls. All the sub-themes that has been found in the results and analysis can be linked to some sort of control aspect. We have seen that taking control over oneself or a situation helps the recovery process; whilst absence of control may obscure or stop it. Accordingly the control subject may be developable within the social pedagogy field of research. To increase the sense of control can be done in more than one way. A feeling of involvement in both trivial and big decisions may have an positive impact on the recovery process, because it gives a greater sense of control. It can be everything between make part in cooking to be part in their own health- and rehabilitation planning

    Abstract [en]

    Background: People with mental disabilities often live in exclusion and regularly find themselves outside of the regular labour market. The lack of work or a meaningful occupation can lead to a deterioration in both health and opportunities for recovery. The present study deals with people with mental disabilities that have a work-focused occupation. The study was carried out in a Fountain House, as a demarcation had to be made to a specific division.Purpose: The purpose of the study was to examine what role occupation has in terms of recovery for people with mental disabilities. The questions asked were which elements in occupation might promote recovery and which might prevent, with a focus on participation and meaningfulness in occupation.Method: The study has a qualitative onset. Six semi-structured interviews have been carried out with people involved in a work-focused occupation and that have, as interpreted from the standpoint of an administrative definition, mental disabilities. The analysis work has been made with the help of sentence concentration, and the empiricism has been analysed according to the theoretical outsets of recovery, participation and meaningfulness.Result: As seen from the result, an individual-based meaningful occupation in which the individual fill a function and feel competent, as well as being offered participation and a feeling of community, contribute to a promotion of the recovery of the individual. Furthermore, the result showed that occupation can contribute to a changed self-image and a structure that is of use in a well-functioning everyday life. Another discovery is that conflict is an element in occupation that may prevent recovery, which in turn can affect participation and community negatively, as people may choose to stay at home because of it. It is shown that a lack of economic replacement in occupation can be perceived as negative and constitute an obstruction element for recovery. The knowledge of which elements in occupation that might promote or prevent recovery can be attributed to develop and improve different occupation activities.

The study is qualitative in nature and includes three semi-structured interviews with personnel at MiniMili as well as a youth in the ongoing treatment process.

To see youth from a holistic perspective by involving its network, as well as to adapt the aid efforts from the youngster's needs is considered central to promoting treatment activities.

    That young people experience a membership in different social contexts are highlighted by both previous research, theoretical starting points as well as respondents to be an important aspect. Man is a gregarious animal and need to experience both the closeness, caring, and community in order to maintain a good health. It is therefore of great importance to develop and create more opportunities for young people to meet in different social arenas. Drugs are becoming more commonplace among young people. Online drug's importance surrounding this development has proven to be great. Online drugs creates an increased supply of psykaktiva substances in the sentence may not be illegal, but in many cases just as dangerous. Drugs are a button press away, and can be ordered straight to your door, making it difficult to catch up with these youngsters. It is therefore very important to highlight this issue.

    Äldreomsorgens nationella värdegrund: reflektioner över äldre brukares nöjdhet och hemtjänstens villkor2016Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna rapport handlar om ett värdegrundsarbete och är ett resultat av ett utvecklingsarbete som bedrivits i samverkan mellan personal i ett hemtjänstdistrikt i Trollhättan och två forskare vid Högskolan Väst. Texten är,där inget annat anges, författad av undersköterskor och vårdbiträden, enskilt eller i grupp. Rapporten inleds med en bakgrund där hemtjänstpersonalen beskriver sitt arbete och hur det är organiserat. Därefter gör de en genomgång av den av Socialstyrelsen fastställda värdegrunden för äldreomsorg som visar vilka etiska värden och normer som ska ligga till grund för en verksamhet. Denna del följs av personalens beskrivning av arbetsprocessen och om samtal om hur forskning går till, forskningsetik, intervjuer, analys och rapportskrivande. Det övergripande syftet med projektet som helhet är att ta tillvara brukares synpunkter och personalens kunskaper och erfarenheter för att utveckla och öka kvaliteten i hemtjänstarbetet. För att undersöka brukarnas uppfattning om värdegrundsarbetet har personalen intervjuat nitton av sina brukare. Resultatet av brukarnas synpunkter redovisas tillsammans med respektive värdegrundsbegrepp. För att ge en inblick i hemtjänstens komplexa arbete har personalen också skrivit ett antal korta berättelser. Dessa illustrerar vardagliga situationer och personalens reflektioner över relationer och arbetsinnehåll. Rapporten avslutas med forskarnas tankar om processarbetet. Rapporten vänder sig till politiker,brukare, tjänstemän, närstående, chefer, intresserade av vård- och omsorgsyrken och personal inom olika verksamheter för att de ska få en insyn ihemtjänstarbetet.
