Abstract [en]

The ecosocial work perspective stresses on the importance of focusing on the holistic interconnectedness between humans and non-humans for enhancing the wellbeing of all. Within the field of occupational social work, the involvement of companion animals for enhancing the wellbeing and productivity of employees is gaining popularity. Within this context, a study was undertaken at the University of Gavle, in Sweden, with the aim to explore the potential benefits and challenges of companion animals in health promoting work-life. Using an abductive thematic network analysis of the gathered perspectives from four focus group discussions with students and staff members from the University of Gavle, this article presents answers to two main research questions: (a) why and how companion animals can be beneficial in certain areas of occupational social work practice; and (b) what are some of the possible ways of tackling challenges emanating from having companion animals at workplace. This article concludes that companion animals can be beneficial in certain areas of occupational social work practice; however, social workers need to consider and appropriately plan for ethical, legal and organizational implications involved in having such interventions.
