    Att sakna sysselsättning: - Socialarbetarens erfarenheter av att möta klienter som saknar sysselsättning2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract The aim of this paper was to study social workers experience of working with clients that do not have an occupation or who have earlier lacked an occupation and the subsequent work towards change. This study was conducted with a qualitative method. The empirical data is based on five interviews with professional social workers and the result has been analyzed based on systematic theory. The analysis resulted in four different themes; working methods, the process of change, obstacles in the change process and distinctive groups. The result show that the social workers use a variety of working methods in their daily work with clients, such as motivational-, goal-oriented-, empathetic working methods, different kinds of treatment work and by creating a good work alliance with the client. Obstacles that the social workers experience in their work with clients towards change include inadequate cooperation, shame, resources, and the client's negative attitude. The result also show that the respondents of the study agree that participation and a perceived meaningfulness of the client are crucial for the outcome of the work. Another thing that appears in the result is the presence of groups of individuals who are distinguished regarding certain topics. These groups of individuals may be more difficult to motivate than other individuals within the target group or there may be circumstances surrounding the individual, such as alcohol or drug abuse, which makes it difficult to achieve a change. Our conclusion is that the key to successful change is communication and participation. A positive consequence of the client's involvement in (part of) the decision making during the change process means that he or she experiences a sense of meaning with what is happening, which proved to be very important for a successful outcome of the work. Keywords: occupation, mental health, systematic theory

    Barns Möjligheter att Medverka och Påverka: En kvalitativ studie om socialsekreterares erfarenheter av barns delaktighet i barnavårdsutredningar2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the study was to investigate children's participation in child welfare investigations. Six interviews were conducted with social workers who are active in child welfare investigations, to understand social workers experiences of children's involvement in investigations. The results show that children are not always involved or as involved as they should, for different reasons. The child's age, the child's ability to communicate, the child's attitude to cooperation, the guardian's attitude to cooperation, social workers prerequisites in terms of skills, tools and workload. Furthermore, the results show that children's best and social issues need to weigh heavier in child welfare investigations, as today there is a lot of focus on parents and guardians. This study aims to contribute knowledge of children's participation in child welfare research.

    Managing Organized Insecurity: The Consequences for Care Workers of Deregulated Working Conditions in Elderly Care2015In: Nordic Journal of Working Life Studies, ISSN 2245-0157, E-ISSN 2245-0157, Vol. 5, no 2, p. 55-70Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Part-time work is more than twice as common among women than men in Sweden. New ways of organizing working hours to allow for more full-time jobs have been introduced for care workers in elderly care, which means unscheduled working hours based on the needs of the workplace. The aim of the study is to analyze how the organization of the unscheduled working hours affect employees' daily lives and their possibility to provide care. The Classic Grounded Theory method was used in a secondary analysis of interviews with employees and managers in Swedish municipal elderly care. The implementation of unscheduled working hours plunged employees into a situation of managing organized insecurity. This main concern for the care workers involved a cyclic process of first having to be available for work because of economic and social obligations to the employer and the co-workers, despite sacrifices in the private sphere. Then, they had to be adaptable in relation to unknown clients and co-workers and to the employer, which means reduced possibilities to provide good care. Full-time jobs were thus created through requiring permanent staff to be flexible, which in effect meant eroded working conditions with high demands on employee adaptability. Solving the part-time problem in elderly care by introducing unscheduled working hours may in effect be counter-productive.

    Unresolved conflicts and shaming processes: risk factors for long-term sick leave for mental-health reasons2014In: Nordic Journal of Social Research, ISSN 1892-2783, E-ISSN 1892-2783, Vol. 5, p. 39-54Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Mental illness is the most common diagnosis resulting in long-term sick leave in Sweden today, especially stress-related syndromes and mood disorders. The aim of this article is to analyse the relational and emotional processes in the workplace that may contribute to the understanding of long-term sick leave for mental-health reasons. We conducted interviews with twenty-six people who were on sick-leave because of diagnoses of mental ill-health. The empirical material was analysed using Classic Grounded Theory. We suggest that the risk of being afflicted with mental illness, and forced into long-term sick leave, increases when there are conflicts at work that remain unresolved and which lead to malignant shaming processes that jeopardize personal dignity. In their struggle to maintain self-esteem, the afflicted escalate their work efforts by increasing work intensity, putting in overtime, and working when ill. Eventually, this behaviour affects their health and results in sick-listing. The strengths and weaknesses of the study are discussed along with the need for further research.

    Mjuk massage och diakoni: Ett holistiskt perspektiv2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction

    Tactile Massage is a generic term that for example includes Massage therapy, Effleurage, Gentle touch, Tactile stimulation, Soft massage and Aromatherapy massage (SBU 2009). Tactile Massage has been proven to activate the perception receptors of the body and stimulates the system of oxytocin and in that way Tactile massage increase wellbeing and decrease pain. The Church of Sweden was formally separated from the state in the year of 2000 and by this means created greater freedom in facilitating its own social and Deaconal programs in separate parishes. Since 2004 a few numbers of deacons have been integrating Tactile massage as a method in Deaconal  ministry within the framework of holistic care in the Church of Sweden.

    Aim/Research questions

    The aim: From a holistic perspective investigate the use of and to increase the problem-awareness of Tactile massage in the Deaconal ministry within the Church of Sweden.

    The research questions: How is Tactile massage being used and how are we to describe the experiences of Tactile massage in the Deaconal ministry? What possibilities and difficulties are related to the use of Tactile massage in the Deaconal ministry within the Church of Sweden?

    Method

    This study is the first explorative research about Tactile massage in Swedish church diaconal context. The study follows Kvales method as seven steps of qualitative interview studies. 1) Aim and research questions were formulated  according to the acquired theory. 2) Three respondents were chosen for in-depth interviews to be able to understand and describe experiences, possibilities and clarify difficulties with the use of Tactile massage within the Church of Sweden. 3) Qualitative interviews were carried out with the help of semi-structured questions. The interviews were recorded and observations were done. 4) The interviews were transcribed and re-read several times. In the process of research the material was coded and interpreted into experiences, possibilities and difficulties. 5) The process of interpretation and analysis of collected data and applied observations were carried out with the help of hermeneutical approach, ten theoretical perspectives and current research. 6) Results. The results were tested according to requirements of reliability, validity and generalization. 7) Report. In this study the results were reported with methodological, ethical and hermeneutical considerations.

    Results

    Tactile massage was described as an extraordinary tool where the experiences pointed out a general longing for touch in the lived body. The power of touch released courage, relaxation, new energy, pain relief and balance. Spiritual presence was experienced as Gods presence in the bodies of both massage-givers and massage-receivers. Possibilities with Tactile massage were described as practical care, where the non-verbal intervention could support the communication when words did not last. Quiet and relief was created through the freeing of the internal oxytocin-system of the body giving the massage-receiver social confirmation and renewal of the body. Difficulties in using Tactile massage within the deaconry were described as physical and mental vulnerability and unclear professional identity of the massage-givers. Difficulties where related also to integrity, boundaries and limitations of gender due to the majority of the female massage-givers and massage-takers in the present situation. One more difficulty was pointed out as the organizational unsecurity about what Tactile massage is and this difficulty was partly related to views of Deaconry and Church. ‘Deaconal Touch’ is the new concept and  the practical result of this study. Deaconal Touch can be described  as a deaconal tool to be handled in the context of the Church of Sweden.

    Behandling mot alla odds: En kvalitativ studie om den offentliga sektorns förutsättningar för arbete med behandling av spelberoende2015Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to provide information on the way professionals in Sweden encounter individuals with a gambling addiction, to show how they perceive and reflect on their ability to help and treat these individuals whilst fulfilling their responsibilities to their organization and their client. The study is based on interviews with local authorities, health care representatives, private treatment organizations and a national help organization, all of which specialize on gambling addiction. This is in order to show the full spectrum of gambling problems.  The results of the empirical data have been analyzed using two methods. The first of which is a model developed by Meeuwisse and Swärd (2002), which explains the definition and handling of a social problem. The second method utilizes the “consequences of logic” perspective within the organizational theory. The results indicate that the issue involving gambling addiction is problematic on a national level, in regard to the distribution of responsibilities. This has shown that treatment of gambling addictions is either not performed, or performed under certain restrictions. These problems can be attributed to the lack of a widely used and acknowledged definition of the term gambling addiction. This makes it difficult to judge whether the condition should be treated as a psychiatric disorder, or as an addiction not dissimilar to alcohol or narcotic addictions.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to explore selected organizations work against degrading treatment on the internet among children and youths. We used a qualitative method and the empirical material was collected by interviews of six participants. Four of them were from the different organizations Friends, Bris, Tjejjouren and Child and School Student Representative which somehow were connected to the issue degrading treatment on the internet. Two of the participants worked as school counselors in various student health teams at two high schools. The material has been analyzed using content analysis and the theoretical framework of institutional theory and isomorfism. The result showed that the working basis of the organizations differed according to laws and theories. The organizations worked with different actions, for example supporting activities, lectures and educations to different target groups such as e.g., school. The organizations had in common that they worked with similar methods against degrading treatment on the internet as against traditional degrading treatment. The results showed that there were different ways to form cooperation between organizations, for example through formal or informal agreements. Several of the organizations in our study directed their work toward the school and the result showed that there are shortcomings in how the cooperation was performed.

    Äldres vardagsliv i Namibia: En kvalitativ studie om äldres upplevelser av vardagslivet2014Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 210 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    The aim of the thesis was to examine some older people's experiences of everyday life and how it is to grow old in Namibia today. Because everyday life is a broad concept, we chose to focus on some specific parts of everyday life. These are chores, family, work/education, elderly past and present and the government/society. Furthermore we chose to look at the similarities and differences between the experiences on the basis of gender, race/ethnic groups and class.

    We chose to use a qualitative research method and to be inspired by life stories. We used a semi-structured interview guide and interviewed six people between 70 and 89 years. Three of this was women and three men. A woman and a man were white and the remained were black. Since we in our purpose had a number of themes related to everyday life our interviews focused on these. When the interviews were done we tried to look at the similarities and differences we could find. We analyzed the result with our theoretical frame and previous research.

    The results showed that there were large differences in economic opportunities between the interview persons and there were also differences in their chores. The black interview persons had clear divisions in the chores while the white interview persons didn’t talk about chores that much. The white interview persons also thought that the black population had gained more power in society while the black on the other hand felt they hadn’t any power in Namibia at all. The interview persons felt equally about dissatisfaction with the government and the changing view of the elderly in today's Namibia.

    Key words: elderly, daily life of elderly, elderly people in Namibia, gender, class, race/ethnic groups and society in transition.

    Jag har svårt att tro att man vill vara utanför samhället: Socialarbetares upplevelser av integration i arbetet med ensamkommande barn2014Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper was to examine social workers' experiences of integration of unaccompanied children. We aimed to study which factors in the individual and the community social workers experience affect the integration and how they, based on their understanding, work to promote integration. The essay has a phenomenological approach and focuses on the social workers' own experiences of the phenomenon. The empirical data was obtained from qualitative interviews conducted with five social workers, all administrators in cases involving unaccompanied children. The result shows that the social workers feel that the desire to integrate is the most important presumption that must be present in the unaccompanied children. An important hindrance to the integration that the social workers illustrate is their experiences of trauma which have to be dealt with before they can successfully complete the process of integration. The social workers indicate school, the sheltered accommodation, social services and voluntary organizations as the operators that are most important for the integration. All interviewees also believe that what society looks like and what values that are prevailing ​​are affecting the unaccompanied childrens' integration. The social workers report that they are working to strengthen and motivate the unaccompanied children to become a part of society but not all are receptive to it.

    “Jag har aldrig ångrat mitt yrkesval!”: – En kvalitativ studie om erfarna socialarbetares drivkrafter2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this qualitative study, the positive aspects of social work and how experienced social workers describe their motivation and well-being, are examined. Five experienced social workers, who all had worked for 30 years or more, were interviewed. The theory Sense of coherence (SOC) by Antonovsky, and the constructs comprehensibility, manageability and meaningfulness, were used to analyze the material from the interviews. During the analysis a few themes appeared to be of more importance for the purpose of the study. These were: a good atmosphere at the workplace and among colleagues, relations with clients, the importance of humor, mobility as a strategy and how stress can be turned into motivation. The results showed that the stress the social worker meets, is a significant source for the ability to be motivated and feel meaningfulness in social work. A good atmosphere at the workplace and among colleagues and good relations with clients were of importance for a sense of well-being among the social workers in the present study.

    The purpose of this study was to investigate how social workers relates to the child's best in the work with families where the parents have an intellectual disability. To answer the purpose of the study a qualitative method have been used. Interviews were conducted with five social workers from five different municipalities in central Sweden, active in the child and adolescent unit. A qualitative content analysis was used for analysis of the interview material and two main categories were found; "How far can we stretch ourselves before we say stop?", Fear and uncertainty and six associated subcategories emerged. The first category shows an uncertainty among social workers about what is the child's best in families where the parents have an intellectual disability. The other category indicates that there is a fear of social services from parents who have an intellectual disability which may hamper the work with the families. The result shows, like attachment theory, that a parent can be a disincentive to their child's development if it lacks the ability to see and understand the child's signals. An intellectual disability in itself is not, according to this studie, decisive in determining whether the child will have a secure attachment. An increased knowledge about children growing up in families where the parents have an intellectual disability can help social services and the social secretary in the questions about the child's best and provide a guide to what might be the child's best growing environment.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to examine counselors working in health care facilities and their perception of the factors that determine whether or not women exposed to rape police report the incident. The result is based on five qualitative interviews with counselors who in their work meet female rape survivors. Throughout our research process we have been inspired by the hermeneutic method. The analysis was based upon the general system theory and the ecological system theory. The factors we found for reporting rape were divided into micro- meso and macro level. The result of this study shows that it is not possible to distinguish specific factors for if female rape survivors report the rape to the police or not. It is rather a multiple number of contributive factors that affect the women in different ways. In the end it is the woman who makes the final decision whether she will report the rape or not, but never without being affected by her closest surroundings. Furthermore the result shows more factors not to report to the police than doing so, this result along with the verified estimated number of unknown cases in terms of rape can be interpreted as meaning that the obvious norm in Sweden that a crime is supposed to be reported to the police is not given when it comes to reporting rape.
