The relationship as a tool, how important is it? : A qualitative study of the meaning of the relationship between social workers and client in the social services unit for addiction (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att inom socialtjänstens individ- och familjeomsorgsenhet undersöka vilken betydelse relationen mellan socialarbetare och klient upplevs ha för ett framgångsrikt klientarbete, samt vad som upplevs viktigt vid relationsarbete med klienter. Syftet var även att undersöka vilka faktorer och organisatoriska förutsättningar som kan påverka relationen. För att besvara syftet utgick studien från tre frågeställningar, hur upplever socialarbetare att relationen till klienter påverkar deras arbetssituation, vilka komponenter upplever socialarbetare som viktiga vid relationsarbete med klienter, vilka faktorer och organisatoriska förutsättningar upplever socialarbetare främst påverkar relationen till klienter? Det empiriska materialet samlades in genom kvalitativa intervjuer där fem socialarbetare intervjuades för att besvara forskningsfrågorna. Materialet bearbetades sedan genom en kvalitativ innehållsanalys och analyserades med hjälp av intersektionalitet och organisationsteori. Resultatet visade att relationen är av största vikt, samt att en god relation underlättar socialarbetarens arbetssituation. Vidare framkommer det i resultatet att de viktigaste komponenterna i en relation mellan socialarbetare och klient upplevs vara tillit och att klientens röst blir hörd. Faktorer som socialarbetarna beskriver påverka relationen är klientens ålder, kön, sociala etablering och om det finns en samsjuklighet. I resultatet framkom det även att socialarbetarna upplevdes ha tillräckligt med tid och utrymme från organisationens sida för att skapa relationer med klienter.
