    "Unga män som bryter mönstret": "Young Men who Break the Standard"2009Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study is about the project Sharaf’s heroes, which aims to change - the attitudes of young men with roots in honour culture. A qualitative method has been used, with four interviews with men who work within the organization. The aim of the study has been to increase the understanding of how work against honour related violence and oppressions can be dealt with, in order to decrease it. The focus in this study lies on the young men's own view on and experiences of honour culture and their work with the project Sharaf’s heroes. Our issues are as follows: What are Sharaf’s heroes and what is the purpose of the project? Which methods are used in their work? Which problems and obstacles will it be with the work in the project and which result has the project given so far? What does an honour culture consist of and what kinds of problems does it cause? Which role has young men living in honour culture and how can they work in order to change it?

     

    Our result shows that the project’s purpose of the project is that it will work as an aid organization in order to prevent and to change attitudes. Additionally, it will function as a knowledge bank for different authorities when it comes to honour related violence. The main method in the project is the dialogue group, where the work starts from underneath through the young generation's men. The result that the project has given so far shows that when the dialogue between children and parents start, a process begins which leads to change the current prevailing attitudes. The problems with the work in the project are above all that there is a lack of cooperation within the authorities, and that authority’s knowledge about honour related problems is inadequate.

     

    Keywords; Honour, Young men’s role, Sharaf’s heroes, Honour related violence and oppression, Socialization, Familystructure.

    Empowering single mothers in Iran: Applying a problem-solving model in learning groups to develop participants' capacities to improve their lives2013In: British Journal of Social Work, ISSN 0045-3102, E-ISSN 1468-263X, Vol. 43, no 5, 1-20 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since 2000, a problem-solving model has been taught to the Society for Protecting the Rights of the Child, and teachers and  students of social work in two universities in Iran. Since 2006, with the initiation of UNICEF, social workers, psychologists  and even some psychiatrists in Iran have been learning this model. In 2008, a group of researchers created an empowerment-oriented  psycho-social group and private intervention project to assess whether a group of Iranian single mothers could use this model, which was traditionally used by professionals only, to effectively and independently meet challenges in their own lives. Our results show that all women used the model effectively and, consequently, made more deliberate decisions to improve their life situations. Some of the women succeeded in finding a job and many improved their family relationships. This study suggests that empowerment-oriented social work can help many clients to achieve their goals, and that this psycho-social intervention project can be a useful model for social work in Iran and many other societies.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to figure out how foster parents view their task and the responsibilities that the task entails, what gives foster parents motivation to continue with the mission, as well as what kind of emotional attachment the foster parents experience they get to the placed children.

    This study consists of six interviews, of which five of them were individual and one pair interview. The gathered material was analyzed from content analysis. Three themes emerged in the results which were: The mission as a foster family, why foster family and the everyday of foster families. The results were then analyzed through previous research along with Antonovskys concept sense of coherence, SOC and Bowlbys attachment theory. The results showed that foster families have different views depending on how long they have been foster families, what kind of children they’ve had but above all, what motivated them to start a foster family.

    Alla blir äldre, även du: En studie om biståndshandläggares upplevelser av äldres diskriminering utifrån ett ålderismteoretiskt perspektiv2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Aid administrators meet many elderlies in their professional role. The aim was with an from a theoretical perspective on ageism study aid administrator's experiences of discrimination against older people. In this study, the question was asked how they feel about discrimination of older people in society and what they think can strengthen the position for elderly as a group. In this study five aid administrators were interviewed about their experiences of elderly people’s discrimination. The results were analyzed using an ageism perspective with a qualitative content analysis. The result shows that aid administrators see ageism in society by meeting with older people and through social perception. They stated that discrimination, prejudice and stereotypes in society that cause problems for older people like, exclusion, poor treatment and a contributor to a negative self-image. Older becomes less represented than other groups, overrides and availability in society is not adapted to their needs and abilities. Aid administrators argue that the perception of the elderly is an area for improvement. To succeed aid administrators, see the need for knowledge about ageism and that society listens to what older people want and need. It is society's duty to combat discrimination and protect human equivalence.

    The inadequacy of an ordinary organisation: Organisational adaptation to crisis through planned and spontaneous links2010In: International Journal of Organisational Behaviour, ISSN 1440-5377, no 15, 87-102 p.Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Emergency response organisations face the challenge of having a bureaucratic structure and meeting extreme situations where predefined directives cannot cover all possible emerging contingencies. The aim of this study was to gain a deeper understanding of the concept of links within the framework of emergency response agencies during severely demanding operations. The empirical data are based on fifty in-depth interviews from three crisis events. The results suggest that collaboration during crisis management is facilitated by two types of links—planned and spontaneous—and both can act vertically and horizontally. The results imply an elaboration of the organizational concept boundary spanners.

The observations where preparatory for the structured interviews. The respondents where pupils in a class were it is an ongoing project which purpose is to develop childrens problem solving ability and social skills with cognitive training and an empowerment based reasoning model that is called rahyab. Rahyab is a Persian word and it means path- finding. Focus has been on the pupils experiences of working with the model and the school project. The studies approach is to examine how younger teens problem solving ability can be developed by cognitive training and social pedagogics? Other questions that we’ve been trying to answer are: what have the younger teens learned from rahyab and it’s steps? How has the younger teens experienced working with rahyab? and do the younger teens feel that they have and will have use of rahyab?

    The results and analysis shows that the younger teens can develop their analytic thinking and thereby also their problem solving ability. They feel that they now have a better understanding for how other people think. This means that they appears to have experienced a development in their social competence. The results shows, with the support of prior knowledge, that younger teens problem solving ability can be developed by cognitive training and social pedagogics.

    Adoption – när barn inte är en rättighet utan något du förvaltar: En studie om kontakten mellan handläggare och adoptivföräldrar under adoptionsprocessen2016Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 300 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to try to interpret interactions between social worker and adoptive parents during the adoption process from a power perspective. The study was inspired by a hermeneutic inductive approach because we were interested in the interpretation of the empirical material. The study was conducted using four qualitative interviews with a total of seven people, four adoptive parents and three social workers. The collected material is then analyzed using a content analysis. To interpret the contact between the adoptive parents and social workers, we have used a power perspective. Our study showed that the applicant, generally speaking, was positive to that an investigation was made based on “the child’s interest”, but experienced some of the questions as intrusive. They found that the assessment made was crucial for the decision, and that it easily can vary from case to case for the decision and that the assessment can certainly vary in different cases. The social workers did not feel that they had any noticeable power, because they do not make the final decision. Their assessment was partly based on laws and guidelines that set the context, for example, how old the applicants may be and the requirement that the applicants must be married. Assessments are also made on the social worker’s individual characteristics based on the applicant's personal qualities such as insight and ability to care for a child.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this examination was to se how exercise affects the learning capacity. In this work I have chosen to integrate natural science with sport and the target group was a primary department. The two areas I integrate with sports were: the digestive system and knowledge of deciduous trees. I split the class in two different groups. One group got to have a theoretical lesson and the other one got to have an exercise lesson. The next day I asked the children to fill in a paper with questions about what they had learned the day before.

    When I later studied the answers that I got from the question paper, the result showed that exercise affects the learning capacity in a positive way.

    That shows that the more senses that is activated the more you learn.

    Abstract [en]

     

    You can find a healthcoach working in several arenas in the society. Some examples are companies, schools, and training faculties and so on. They are using different working methods when meeting people, but most of the time the work is about helping people with healthprevention and healthpromotion after the individual's lifesituation. "Healthwave - sense of balance in the daily life" is a project which purpose is to strengthen the healthcare at Karlstads University. The project started in spring 2005 and the purpose was to improve the physical and psychosocial health among the employees and through that, decrease the sickness rate. Further on, the projects intentions were to increase the workers health-awareness to create an opportunity for them to affect there lifestyle. The project is now in the final act and an annual report of the project is a pressing issue.

     

    Our purpose with this essay is to investigate if the Healthwave mainly purpose involving the physical and psychosocial health been improved and if the employees health-awareness has increased. We have also chosen to investigate which role the healthcoaches had for the involved workforce in the project "Healthwave".

     

    We have taken part of a previous investigation that involves how healthcoaches can work. There intervjues were carried out at school, the county's healthcare organization and Karlstads university's cooperative partner, Karlstads Medical Training Faculty (KMTI), (Aristidou & Häljeskog, 2008). In addition to this we also did one more interview with the one who has the managing position for the project at KMTI. We used information from Healthwaves two questionnaires. The first one was created 2005 and the second 2007.  

     

    The results were showing that healthcoaches are using similar working methods even if the are on different arenas. They are working after every individuals life situation. Knowledge based fact is what they all are using in there work and this combined with there experience creates the working method. They are there as a support for the customers and are trying to express knowledge in an empowering way.

     

    The results are showing that the employees at Karlstads University are presumably thinking on there health more often and are more active on their sparetime. The development shows that the experience of a general healthcondition has improved. The long during sickness rate has decreased with about 60 % and what it seems, a higher health-awareness had been real.  However we can't give any reliable results because of the anonymity and big losses of the questionnaires. We made a fall off analysis and a contet analysis to make our results more reliable.

    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    During my university trip to South Africa I visit a black township called Lingehlile. There I examined the life situation and education for children and youth with mentally disabilities. I was interested in knowing more about what basic condition they have, period of school and what kind of support they get outside the school. The subjects that I have handled are a school for all, support for the person with mentally disabilities and their family, the opinion of the society, education and life after school. I got my result by two interviews. One was with the principal of a school for handicapped children and the other one was with a teacher at that school. Also I have visit a school for handicapped in Cape Town. In Sweden we are talking about a school for all were everybody are welcomed irrespective of handicap. We have laws that stand behind people with mentally disabilities and they can get support and service. With this report I would like to throw light on the situation in another country, in this case South Africa. My investigation showed that they are struggling for a better society for the people with mentally disabilities but they have not come as far as Sweden. This is because of the bad economy and the government. During the trip I met a lot of people that are fighting for better conditions and a rise are slowly but sure on its way.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to research PE (Physical Education) teachers understanding of mental trainings use in their education.

    Six PE teachers were interviewed to create a broad vision of how mental training can be conducted in physical education. The PE teacher’s reflections and views on mental training are illuminated in this study. The interviews conducted have been of an unstructured nature. How mental training can be justified in physical education has been one of my questions. Furthermore, the PE teachers gave their views on how they work with mental training in physical education and what they think about what the future might look like for mental training in physical education. Six different teachers have been interviewed.

    The results which have arisen since the implementation of the study give examples of how mental training can be justified as part of physical education, as in form of visualization. The study shows that PE teachers use mental training in their teaching, for example through motivation, and how they motivate their pupil’s. However, some of the PE teachers use mental training more than others. Something that arose during the research was that the PE teachers had different views about the future of mental training in physical education.

    Middle managers in social care find themselves in a middle position. The middle management position involves demands from several interested parties. The demands affect and generate feelings both within themselves and within others and the middle managers have to deal with them all.

    The aim of this study was to investigate the social care middle manager’s personal experiences of emotions in work.

    We have completed interviews with four middle managers who are assigned to carry out social care. When doing the interviews we used an interview guide divided into different interview areas. The techniques used in the analysis are inspired by grounded theory.

    Our results show that the middle managers experience that they perform emotional labor in their profession. It occurs in interaction with care takers, employees, colleagues and employer. Emotions occur when demands and expectations from these interested parties are inconsistent. Emotions that occur are for example frustration, wrath, anger, dejection, despair and insecurity. Colleagues are primarily the most important social support for the middle managers when it comes to dealing with emotions that occurs in their everyday work. Emotional labor can create negative consequences for the middle managers.

    Konstruktionen av kön: En studie om socialtjänstens yttranden i 3 § LVU (lagen om vård av unga)2010Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim with this study was to examine how social service statement in 3 § social-judgements LVU (Swedish care of young persons act) produce ideas about gender. We have taken an interest in the production of both boys and girls and their mothers and fathers because there are clear differences in the description of these. From a historical perspective, the differences between gender in social assessments occurred despite the fact that discrimination is prohibited by law and despite the fact that social service shall work on the basis of an gender equality perspective. In the analysis and interpretation of the rulings we have been inspired by a critical discourse analysis. 30 social-judgements have been analyzed where of 15 concerns girls and 15 involve boys.  In our study obvious differences between the sexes appear. Gender stereotypical patterns emerged in several cases, for example social service only mentioned sexuality and adolescent self-harm of girls but in non of the boys cases. As regards the mothers are often criticised and clearly described in the judgments while fathers rarely occur.

    Hedersrelaterat våld och förtryck - En fråga för vem?: En diskursanalys om socialsekreterares konstruktion av hedersrelaterat våld och förtryck2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to investigate how social workers relate to and reason about honor-related violence and oppression. The notion of honor-related violence and oppression is not a fixed concept, and it causes a noticeable room to interpretation for social workers individual construction of the phenomenon. The study was designed to see how this construct was expressed by individual social workers in social services in Sweden and whether it affected the granting of effort for clients. The study has a qualitative method for collecting the empirical evidence which formed the study. Discourse analysis was used for the analys. The result gave us a picture that honor-related violence and oppression are made and designed individually by the social worker and that there is no "absolute" truth about what honor-related violence and oppression is. The analysis shows that there is a dominant discourse in which the phenomenon was produced as culturally conditioned, which creates a distance between an "us" and "them", between "Swedes" and "immigrants" and where the emphasis is placed on the individual's cultural identity. The alternative gender discourse that also appear in our results, describing the honor-related violence and oppression as an expression of patriarchal exercise of power which exists independently of the culture. The gender discourse described the phenomenon like any violence whatsoever against women and children, where for example men are not considered able to hold the role of victim but only as perpetrator.

    Förändrad organisation - förändrat arbetssätt: Processutvärdering av ett förändringsarbete inom vård- och omsorgsavdelningarna i Arvika och Årjängs kommuner2007Report (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Frågor om organisering, styrning och kompetens är centrala i all organisationsutveckling, inte minst i stora organisationer med komplexa uppgifter. Om arbetsuppgifterna är sådana att de utförs med en stor grad av autonomi och det dessutom finns flera uppdragsgivare kompliceras styrningsfrågorna ytterligare. Socialtjänstens verksamheter inom vård och omsorg är exempel på sådana organisationer.



    I denna rapport redovisas en processutvärdering av organisationsförändringar i kombination med kompetensutveckling vid avdelningarna för vård och omsorg i två Värmlandskommuner. Ett lösningsfokuserat arbetssätt infördes, samtidigt som organisationerna förändrades genom tydligare ledningsfunktioner och genom att i en av kommunerna ytterligare en chefsnivå inrättades.



    Rapporten beskriver, analyserar och diskuterar de olika förändringarna sammantaget och var för sig. Att samtidigt genomföra flera förändringar visar sig kunna innebära att de delvis motverkar varandra. Ett centralt analystema i utvärderingen är frågor om närhet och distans i tid och rum. En förändring till det bättre i ett avseende visar sig ofta leda till problem och försämring i andra. De personliga relationerna på arbetsplatsen, liksom inställningen till arbetet, får stor betydelse för hur organisationsförändring och kompetensutveckling tas emot och hanteras.



    Rapportens analyserande och diskuterande form gör den aktuell långt utöver de utvärderade organisationerna. Den vänder sig till alla som har intresse för organisationsförändringar i komplexa organisationer.
