"I'm not alone in this town worrying about this" : A qualitative study about professionals knowledge to work with relatives (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of the thesis was to investigate and analyze the experience and knowledge of the individual social secretary from working with and providing support to adult relatives of addicts from an organizational theoretical perspective. Since the essay is based on the experiences of the social secretaries and their knowledge of family support, it is based on an attempt at interpretation and trying to understand the respondents' experiences and knowledge on the subject. A qualitative interview method was chosen as the method for this essay in order to have the opportunity to delve deeper into the respondents' experiences and knowledge. 

Since the social secretaries, that is, the respondents in this study and their professional practice are influenced by factors at the structural, group and individual levels, an organizational theoretical perspective will be used to interpret and understand the results of the essay. Within organizational theory there are the perspectives Instrumental Perspective and Cultural Perspective, which affect the organization's design and work in different ways. 

A qualitative content analysis was used to manage the empiricism of the interviews. In the processing of the thesis empirical results emerged which identified four different sub- categories, which were divided into two different main categories. The subcategories “Working on the basis of guidelines and laws” and “Space for action” were added to the main category “Working within the organization's framework”. The subcategories “Having a co-dependency and being part of a change process” as well as “As a social secretary see the need for support and offer a professional network” was added to the main category “Relatives' feeling and need for support”.
