    Gaining a Global Criminal Justice Perspective: A Computer-Supported Collaboration Between Students in Sweden and the United States2018In: Journal of Criminal Justice Education, ISSN 1051-1253, E-ISSN 1745-9117, Vol. 29, no 4, p. 531-550Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores how Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) can globalize a criminal justice curriculum. It draws on a project where criminology students in Sweden and the United States collaborated in an online environment. We describe the design of the project and use student reflections to identify successes and challenges. The results show that for a CSCL to be successful, instructors need to be intentional about academic, psychological, and interpersonal aspects of the collaboration, as they are all interrelated. The students experienced challenges, for example, related to the workload. However, in most cases, the perceived benefits outweighed the challenges. The students reported an improved understanding of criminology theory and enhanced critical thinking skills. We argue that CSCL can improve the affordability and accessibility of global learning. Without having to travel, the students entered a virtual space where they could learn together with students and faculty from another country.

    Attityder och normer kring anlagd brand bland högstadieungdomar och skolpersonal2011Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Rapportens syfte är att undersöka hur högstadieungdomar och skolanställda uppfattar fenomenet anlagd brand. I undersökningen intervjuades 13 skolanställda och 32 ungdomar om anlagd brand. De flesta ungdomar ser anlagd brand som en allvarlig men relativt ovanlig företeelse. Istället ansågs eldande i skolan vara vanligt förekommande. Särskilt nämndes att elever eldar med tändare. De flesta ungdomar ansåg att det var lika många flickor som pojkar som eldar i skolan. Majoriteten har haft utbildning från räddningstjänsten och de flesta har en positiv bild av räddningstjänstens arbete. Ungdomarna säger sig ha relativt goda kunskaper om eldhantering, hur man släcker en brand och hur man larmar. Flera skolanställda berättar också om att det förekommer eller har förekommit att elever eldar i skolan. Även skolpersonalen har en positiv inställning till räddningstjänstens arbete och har goda kunskaper om eldhantering, hur man släcker en brand och hur man larmar. Ett problem som lyftes fram av skolpersonalen var "tidsbristen" i det förebyggande arbetet mot anlagda bränder.

    Formerly imprisoned polydrug users’ narratives about unemployment2019In: Journal of Substance Use, ISSN 1465-9891, E-ISSN 1475-9942, Vol. 24, no 3, p. 336-340Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Understanding how formerly imprisoned drug users perceive the possibilities and problems associated with entering the job market is important as it could help the reintegration of these individuals into society. The aim of this study was to explore formerly imprisoned polydrug users’narratives about unemployment.

    Methods: Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 22 former prison inmates with extensive prior drug use. The interviews were coded and analysed using a categorical-content, narrative analysis approach.Results: The interviews revealed that although the respondents did not regard themselves as having been unemployed, some mentioned stress during periods in which they lacked a legal occupation. The participants also talked about the importance of being committed to one’s work and described that it was not only employment in itself that was important, but also being able to value or appreciate their employment. Most respondents argued that they had never been dismissed from work because of their drug use, but descriptions of workplace deviance were common in the interviews, e.g. stealing, selling drugs, burglary, using drugs at work.

    Conclusions: The respondents seemed to lack an identity as either unemployed or employed, which may constitute a problem when they enter the job market in the future.

    Narrative Stories and Discourses in an Interview With a Former Amphetamine User2013In: Substance Use & Misuse, ISSN 1082-6084, E-ISSN 1532-2491, Vol. 48, no 13, p. 1360-1368Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study analyzes how an individual constructs his life as a former amphetamine user. The study has a methodological purpose, providing an example of how narrative analysis and discourse analysis can be conducted and combined. First, an interview with a former amphetamine user in his 50s was analyzed by the narrative method with a focus on identity construction. Second, it was then examined from a discourse analytical perspective. The article demonstrates how discourse analysis and narrative analysis could be combined when analyzing identity constructions.

    Perceptions about firesetting among Swedish high school students2020In: International Journal of Adolescence and Youth, ISSN 0267-3843, E-ISSN 2164-4527, Vol. 25, no 1, p. 172-181Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    ABSTRACTFires in school buildings are a major problem in Sweden. However, there is lack of research about juveniles? attitudes to this phenomenon. The aim of this study was to investigate how high school students in Sweden discussed arson and firesetting. Semi-structured interviews and focus group interviews were conducted with 32 high school students (aged 14?15). It was found that although most students argued that playing with fire were common phenomena in their schools, deliberate firesetting was said to be less common. In contrast to previous research the students in this study argued that both girls and boys were equally involved in firesetting and fire play. There was a consensus that arson was a serious problem and a problem that should be prevented.

    Russian Media Narratives About Young Drug Users2013In: Substance Use & Misuse, ISSN 1082-6084, E-ISSN 1532-2491, Vol. 48, no 13, p. 1336-1349Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the 1960s, the media in Western Europe and the United States has been one important actor in the public understanding of the drug phenomenon. In Russia, however, it is only since the 1980s that illegal drugs have been discussed in the media and this discussion remains on-going today. By using narrative analysis, this article focuses on how illegal drug use among young people is constructed in the Russian press. As a result of the narrative analysis, three main discourses were identified: a foreign problem discourse, a disease discourse, and a medical discourse.

    Performance and image enhancing substance use among young people in Sweden2021In: Performance Enhancement & Health, E-ISSN 2211-2669, Vol. 9, no 2, article id 100194Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of performance- and image-enhancing substances (PIES) use, and factors related to this, among a representative sample of the general Swedish population aged 16–25. We used a quantitative cross-sectional self-report design to examine prevalence and possible relationships between PIES use and socio-demographics, physical activity, attitudes towards muscle building and doping, friends’ use, body image, and body modification. Approximately 12% of the respondents reported that they used or had used PIES. A logistic regression analysis pointed out the importance of the social context – friends who used PIES, how body image affected social life, and how others viewed one's body – as more important factors for using PIES than attitudes towards muscle building and doping. Taken together, these results indicate a need to pay attention to the use of PIES among young people as a potential public health problem.

    Some Die Young: A Follow-Up Study of Young Men Exposed to Violence in Sweden2021In: Victims & Offenders, ISSN 1556-4886, E-ISSN 1556-4991, Vol. 16, no 5, p. 652-663Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This register-based study from Sweden examines mortality risks among young male victims of violence. In total, 8722 men aged 18–24 years who spent at least one night in inpatient care after exposure to violence in the years 1992–2005 were compared with 78,702 age-matched men from the general population. Cox regressions showed that men exposed to violence had a >3 times higher risk of all-cause mortality, a >4 times higher risk of suicide, and about a 20 times higher risk of death from later violence. The risk of suicide remained stable during the follow-up, and the risk of all-cause mortality and death from later violence decreased.
