Insufficient knowledge : A qualitative study of how child psychiatry experiencesthe usage of social media when they encounter children with mental illness (English)
Abstract [sv]

Sociala medier är idag en självklar del i många barns vardag och forskning har visat en kraftig ökning av användandet under de senaste åren. Samtidigt har forskning visat att psykisk ohälsa hos barn blivit vanligare och vart tionde barn i Sverige lider av psykisk ohälsa. Utifrån detta var studiens syfte att undersöka hur professionella inom barnpsykiatrin uppfattar användandet av sociala medier vid mötet med barn. Fyra kvalitativa intervjuer med kuratorer i olika verksamheter inom barnpsykiatri har genomförts. Resultatet visade att kuratorernas upplevelser av sociala medier är att det inverkar på barns mående och att det finns en kunskapsbrist kring sociala medier. Resultatet visade även att det saknas metoder och material för att kartlägga och hantera användandet av sociala medier hos barn med ångestproblematik. Studien visade därmed att det finns ett behov inom barnpsykiatrin att utveckla arbetet med sociala medier.

Abstract [en]

Today social media is a natural part of many children's everyday life and research has shown a vigorous increase of the usage. At the same time research has shown that mental illness among children has become more frequent and every tenth child suffers from a mental illness. Due to this, the aim of this study was to look into how professionals within child psychiatry experience the usage of social media when they encounter children. Four interviews with curators within child psychiatry was conducted. The results showed that curator’s experiences of social media are that they have an impact on children's mental health and that there is a lack of knowledge about social media in child psychiatry. There is also a lack of methods to map and manage the usage of social media among children.
