    Intimate partner violence against immigrant women with temporary residence permit: -Interviews with professionals2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to explore the situation of immigrant women with temporary residence permit who face intimate partner violence and are living in Mid-Sweden. The study had a qualitative approach and four professionals with experience in meeting this group were interviewed using semi-structured questions. The sample consisted of respondents from social services, a women’s shelter, a NGO and a law firm. Findings show that due to controlling behavior by their partners the women are often isolated from society. Economical violence is explained as frequently occurring. Furthermore, the findings show that having a temporary residence permit makes it difficult to leave the abusive relationship, since it is connected to the risk of deportation. According to the respondents the women experience fear and worries related to their legal status. Moreover, the help available for them include supporting conversations, protected living and legal guidance. The findings indicate that for the women’s situation to be improved they need to gain information on their rights.

    Har jag LoV att välja?: En studie om kunders upplevelse av valfrihet2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Elderly care in Sweden has changed over time. A development that has occurred has led to that system of freedom of choice is common for individuals in need of the elderly care. The elderly has gone from care users to become customer´s on a market. The purpose of this essay was to examine whether customers in need of home care experience that they have a real choice in a system of choice. We conducted a qualitative interview study with six individuals who are granted efforts under the Social Services Act, SoL (2001:453). The results show that respondents in our study felt that they had a real choice. The empirical data showed factors that were relevant to the customer´s attitude to their choice. Customers who lacked social support in the choice situations experienced more difficulties to deal with their own choice. The written information was another factor that was perceived difficult to deal with as it was given in excessive quantity. Customer´s own resources of social and cultural capital were relevant to how they valued their freedom of choice.

    Abstract [en]

    Our aim of this study was to investigate barriers and opportunities for people with mental disorders getting in to the labor market. This from experiences by people whose daily job contains work rehabilitation for this group in particular. On the basis of five qualitative interviews the results showed that prejudices towards people with mental disorders are a barrier for them to get a wage labor. Furthermore the results showed that low self-esteem within the target group and also high educational demands becomes a barrier to a wage labor. The results also showed that to focus on the healthy aspects may serve as an opportunity for people with mental disorders to get in to the labor market and be able to have a paid job. Another opportunity for this particular group consists of getting a subsidized employment. An increased knowledge among employers about the difficulties and strengths people with mental disorders may have to execute a job, can also serve as an opportunity for them to get an employment.

    Stödgrupp för unga vuxna - ur ett anhörigperspektiv: ett vårdutvecklingsprojekt hos Cancerfonden 1999-2000 : slutrapport2001Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Rapporten beskriver ett projekt på Huddinge universitetssjukhus med syfte att skaffa kunskap om huruvida en gruppverksamhet är en lämplig stödform för unga anhöriga till cancerpatienter. Man anordnade en verksamhet med en grupp bestående av 5 ungdomar vars föräldrar var svårt och obotligt sjuka i cancer. Vid den åttonde och sista gruppträffen gjordes en utvärdering av gruppen. Samtliga inblandade var i stort sett mycket positiva. De deltagande ungdomarna tyckte att en gruppverksamhet fungerade mycket bra då det överskuggande behovet var att träffa andra som är i samma situation.

    Exploring the Content of Post-Traumatic Stress Symptoms among Parents after Paediatric Stem Cell Transplant2015In: PLoS ONE, ISSN 1932-6203, E-ISSN 1932-6203, Vol. 10, no 5, article id e0126905Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the present study the aim was to explore the content in a trauma reported in a self-report questionnaire by parents of children with a life threatening illness. Semi-structured interviews were performed, with the aim to explore the specific cognitive and behavioral content of the trauma related symptoms reported by the individual informant. The transcripts of the interviews were analyzed with content analysis using a direct approach with a-priori categories according to the B and C categories of the DSM-IV diagnostic criteria for PTSD. The results give us the picture of a complex situation, where the self-report instrument PCL captured a spectrum of qualitatively different cognitions. The parents described traumatic thoughts and images relating not only to experiences in the past (i.e., truly post-traumatic), but also to current stressors and expected future events.

    Skolsocialt arbete med suicidalitet: Möjligheter, hinder och vikten av samverkan utifrån kvalitativa intervjuer med skolkuratorer2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study aims to examine school social workers perceptions and experiences of school social work with suicidality among students. To fulfill this purpose, six qualitative interviews have been made and two questions have been asked. The first question we asked was what kind of perceptions and experiences school social workers have when it comes to suicidality among adolescents in school. The second question we asked was how school social workers describe their practical work with students who are suicidal. The result shows that even though there are experiences of students who have suicidal thoughts, students who have made suicide attempts and students who have committed suicide, suicidality among students is something that is perceived as rare among the school social workers. Stress, mental health problems and difficult life situations is seen to be contributing causes of this phenomena. The result also shows, that school social workers in some ways have the ability to discover and work with students who are suffering from suicidality. However, these possibilities are also limited. School social workers experience a lack of instruments to detect suicide and to be able to work with suicidality in school. Instead, school social workers describes relationships and collaboration with both students and with other groups of staff in school as the primary basis for their work with suicidality among students.

    Ett arbete organiserat med stor frihet: En kvalitativ studie om skolkuratorers arbete med nyanlända2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the study was to examine school counsellors experience of working with newly arrived immigrant students within the school’s organisation. Five school counsellors working in a municipality with many newly arrived immigrant students were interviewed in a qualitative study through a focus group discussion. The results were analysed using organisational theory and compared with previous research. Results showed that the school counsellors lacked explicit organisational routines in the work with newly arrived immigrant students, and that the counsellors worked independently but the guidelines from management were vague and changed on a regular basis. Linguistic confusion and interpretation issues were considered challenging. With more distinct control and structure from management a higher degree of consensus between different professions and other organisations would be made possible in working with newly arrived immigrant students. Finally, school counsellors contribution on how to include students and how collaboration could be improved were discussed

    ”I min situation som människa är jag en tvåa”: En studie om brukares perspektiv på möten med socialarbetare inom socialtjänstens missbruksvård2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna uppsats var att undersöka vad brukare anser om delaktighet i planering och beslut kring hjälpinsatser. Studien bygger på fem kvalitativa intervjuer. Empowerment-teori tillämpades på resultaten och har således varit studiens teoretiska utgångspunkt. Resultaten visade att brukarena i studien i stort inte upplevt sig som delaktiga i planering eller beslut. De har heller inte känt fullt förtroende för socialarbetaren de träffade när de sökte hjälp för sitt missbruk. Vad gäller upplevelsen av att ha makt över sin egen situation förmedlade intervjupersonerna en känsla av maktlöshet gentemot socialarbetaren. Studiens analys visar att tänkbara orsaker till brukarnas upplevelser kan vara organisatoriskt grundande, då de kan förklaras genom bristande resurser såsom ekonomi, tid och kunskap. Brukarna uppgav det som önskvärt att socialarbetaren visat större engagemang och visat mer empati gentemot dem. Bristande resurser hos brukaren förklaras genom begreppet inlärd hjälplöshet.

    "Det är aldrig för sent": Fyra berättelser om vägen ut ur kriminalitet.2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    ”It´s never too late.” - Four stories about the path out of crime.

    The purpose of this paper was to study the subjective experiences of factors that have contributed to desistance from criminal behavior, and the factors which, according to the interviewees own experiences lead to the maintenance of a more conventional lifestyle. The study was performed using qualitative semi-structured interviews with four ex-offenders. The results have shown that factors, such as love relationships and parenting, as well as desistance from alcohol and drug abuse and changing their environment are factors that in interaction with each other have affected the interviewed individuals desistance from criminal behavior. Routines, new social network and support are factors which, according to the interviewees made it possible to maintain a more conventional lifestyle. The study's main conclusion is that the interaction between external and internal factors so called ”turning points”, is crucial to a desistance process to be successful.

    Unga kvinnors upplevelse av abort: En kunskapsöversikt av aktuell forskning utifrån ett socialkonstruktionistiskt perspektiv2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to investigate the social and psychological factors that may be of importance for young women's decisions leading to abortion, and their experience from induced abortion. A knowledge review using the qualitative method of research with empirical information collected from 9 scientific articles. The result shows that social norms and values, relationships with partners, parents and friends, personal values and their degree of self-awareness are of importance for young women's decision on abortion. Women's ways of relating to the pregnancy and depicting the fetus as well as having mental support from close relatives affected their experiences of the abortion. An important conclusion is that a more open and accepting climate in society towards young pregnant women, together with mental support and objective information about women’s own choice in youth clinics, could lead to a greater opportunity for young pregnant women to make independent decisions.

    Teori och praktik i yrke och utbildning: Komparativa fallstudier med arkitekter, ingenjörer, sjuksköterskor och officerare.2003Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Intresset kring professioner och professionaliseringsprocesser har ökat under de senaste åren. Det är inte längre enbart forskare med tvärvetenskapliga ansatser som studerar fenomenen, utan alltfler aktörer inom olika yrkesgrupper är aktiva. Yrkesgrupper som tidigare huvudsakligen har haft en gedigen färdighetsträning som bas för yrkesutövning, har numera även utvecklat egen forskning som en del i en professionalisering. Andra delar i professionaliseringen är att fler yrkesutbildningar införlivats i det akademiska systemet, liksom att yrkens kunskapsbas och avgränsning gentemot andra yrken är stadd i ständig utveckling.

    Allt detta skapar spänningar och ger nya utmaningar i fråga om bildning, utbildning och yrkesutövande. Äldre yrkesutövare känner sig främmande för yngre teoretiskt skolade, men också yrkesmässigt mindre skickliga, kolleger. Lärarna i de akademiska yrkesutbildningarna kanske inte känner igen sig i de nya kraven på vetenskaplighet. Positioner flyttas i fråga om yrkeskunnande. Yrkens kunskapsbas förändras och det får följder för såväl yrkesutövning som utbildning. I detta uppstår lätt en polarisering mellan ”teori” och ”praktik”. Utmaningen i varje yrkesutbildning handlar om att förena dessa två aspekter, att gjuta samman dem i en gemensam yrkeskompetens.

    I denna forskningsöversikt beskrivs, analyseras och problematiseras några aspekter av detta – och då särskilt frågan om ”teori” och ”praktik”. Översikten utgör en pusselbit i förståelsen av hur yrkesgrupper kan reflektera över sig själv, sin kunskapsbas och sitt ansvarsområde. De yrkesgrupper som behandlas är arkitekter, ingenjörer, sjuksköterskor, militära officerare – och i viss mån – lärare.

    Why Microfinance in RICH Developed Countries?2018In: XIX ISA World Congress of Sociology: Book of Abstracts, 2018, p. 329-329Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This research deals with microfinance. Microcredit means giving people access to financial resources to borrow a small amount of money to invest in income generating context related to business activities. The study analyzes how microfinance is structured and its influence on business development in Sweden. A multiple case study is applied for data collection. Qualitative data have been collected in form of semi-structured interviews. Direct observation and documents have also been used as data source. The study shows that microfinancecontributes to development of sustainable enterprises and innovative product and services development. It is argued that microfinance leads to sharing risk and financing projects in social enterprises, cooperative businesses and associations. It provides people with social networks, enhances their independence, empowers them and improves the quality of their life by generating economic resources. We suggest future comparative studies on the influence of microfinance on business development and women empowerment in emerging economies and developed countries.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to examine the methods that social workers and other professionals use in their work with children and youth with ADHD and behavioural problems.

    Seven professionals from different practices and backgrounds where interviewed about their methods and their understanding of the underlying psychosocial mechanisms of behavioural problems in children and youth with ADHD. Results showed a wide variety of methods used across the field.

    Interviewees pointed out the importance of flexible and individually adaptable approaches and methods, including forms of cognitive training but also pharmacological aspects. Interviewees agreed on most points regarding the underlying psychosocial mechanisms revolving around childrens academic and social difficulties and processes of negative identity-shaping. The findings indicate that time of diagnosis and parent’s and teacher’s understanding of ADHD plays an important role in the development of behavioural problems, and that a variety of different methodological approaches to intervention seem to have good results.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this qualitative interview study was to research with the help of sociological theories the reasons why resilient children despite a destructive childhood can evolve to social functioning humans. Resilient children in this study have grown up with addiction and/or mental illness among parents in childhood. Data was collected by semi structured interviews with four different themes: the social heritage, education and work, social network and health and well-being. Which we analyzed with the help of the theoreticalframeworks, Antonovskys theory Salutogenesis and Bourdieus Reproduction theory. The results showed that the presence of safety figures in childhood as well as the opportunity to experience a different family dynamic and another environment than their own home environment has affected them positively. Even their abstinence approach to alcohol and drugs, and that they have a strong sense of responsibility has affected their overall social capital positively.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to examine if the introduction of neighborhood watch affects the number of burglary. The questions asked were; which types of methods of neighborhood watch were used, and what kind of differences there were between selected areas in Södermalm, Stockholm. We created a matched sample of areas and contacted mediators of neighborhood watch in these areas. We conducted a quantitative study using structured interviews and presented data per burglary rates in the areas five years before and one to five years after neighborhood watch was implemented. The results were analyzed by comparative analysis and concluded that common methods of neighborhood watch were e.g. signage, security doors, good contacts between neighbors and attention to suspects in the area. The differences between the methods used means that general conclusions about differences and similarities cannot be concluded. The impact of neighborhood watch differed, and the results were ambiguous.

Some of the social changes include the profession of social work and peace initiative through inter-faith. The aim of this paper is to explore the role of social workers in peace-building in order to promote wellbeing and work-life in Nepal. This paper gives an insight into the life and relationship among the community members in Nepal, and an insight of how culture, religion, and history may impact people’s everyday-life. The data collection of this study was carried out through a field visit, with semi-structured interviews with twenty-five different key informants, during the period of February to May of 2018. The interviewees include grass-root to national level faith-leaders as well as social work academics. The result of this study indicates that there is a lack of trust among the community members, between government and its people, and government and its external influences, which effect community’s socio-economical standard. The findings also conclude that Nepali society lacks adequate and effective information-sharing, which seems to impact the community’s health and work-life. his study gives social workers an insight on how social bonds and trust among groups could be established, which could increase the well-being of the people in rural area of Nepal.

    Jag langar alkohol: En kvalitativ studie om föräldrar som köper eller köpt ut alkohol till sina ungdomar2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsens syfte var att undersöka bakomliggande orsaker till varför föräldrar förser sina ungdomar med alkohol och hur föräldrarna ställer sig till tanken på deras egna agerande som en brottslig handling. Vi genomförde 6 telefonintervjuer med föräldrar som köpt ut alkohol till sina ungdomar. Genom en kvalitativ innehållsanalys analyserade vi materialet och jämförde med tidigare forskning samt teorin om neutralisationstekniker och rutinaktivitetsteorin. Resultatet visade att föräldrar valt att köpa ut alkohol på grund av att de ansåg att deras ungdomar kommer få tag i alkohol genom andra källor annars, att föräldrarna får en chans att skapa en dialog med sin ungdom gällande alkohol samt att föräldrarna avdramatiserade alkohol genom synen att det var en naturlig del i en ungdoms uppväxt. Resultatet visade även att sociala normer i samhället påverkade föräldrarnas syn på att köpa ut alkohol till sina ungdomar samt att föräldrarna ansåg att det inte var ett allvarligt brott.

    New in a foreign country – the importance of civic orientation

    Jessica Gerhardt & Hiba Sultan

     

    We have examined the information on parenting in Sweden that is given to new immigrants through civic orientation. The aim of the study was to investigate how new arrivals are being informed of Swedish laws and regulations relating to child rearing and corporal punishment. The study also aims to examine how a lack of information about raising children in civic orientation can affect newly arrived families. Our empirical work has been created by a focus group interview with the child and family unit on social services and a call interview with an SFI-teachers who teach newly arrived immigrants in civic orientation. The results were analyzed by a social psychological perspective that explains society's impact on the individual. The results show that all respondents agree that there are flaws in the civic orientation of newly arrived immigrants, both in terms of education and content. A lack of civic orientation can lead to children of new arrivals become physically and mentally abused according to Swedish law. Newly arrived families should be given guidance on which methods are appropriate for raising children in Sweden.

     

    Keywords: civic orientation, child rearing, parenting, child abuse, aga-law

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to chart and analyze the level of knowledge among the professionals who in their line of work meet young girls who have been exposed for cyber bullying, also to identify what the consequences that cyber bullying has for young girls in the age of 13-15 years old, focusing on their wellbeing. In this study four semi-structured interviews were used. The theories chosen for the analysis of our results were symbolic interactionism and objectification theory. Results from this study showed that girls were mostly exposed to cyber bullying because of the way they look. That results in negative consequences for the young girls’ wellbeing, in terms of lower self-esteem, questioning of their self, unease and anxiety. All our participators in this study were unanimous that education within the subject was important, but that the education they currently had wasn’t good enough.

    Hälsofrämjande ledarskap - mer än bara en fruktkorg?: En kvalitativ studie om hälsofrämjande ledarskap inom offentlig social verksamhet2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study aims to obtain an increased knowledge about experiences of leadership among employees in workplaces that focus on a health promoting leadership. The purpose of this study was to examine this issue in relations to the employees experiences of obstacles and opportunities in the health promoting work. In our study we performed four quality interviews with persons active within the public sector. The result of the study has there after been analyzed with the help of Antonovskys analytic method – KASAM and system theory. The most important results observed from our questions are that these respondents experience support from their colleagues and manager, though some of them underline that the support fails when it comes to stress and high workload. The majority of the respondents experienced high participation and influence at the working place while others did not experience this within the organisation. Another important factor that is revealed from our result is that more frequent dialogues with the employees, where you systematically discuss the working environment, seems to give positive effect on the indivduals´ health which confirms the importance of systematical health promoting environmental work.

    Hur blir man narkoman?: och hur hindrar vi det?2010 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Den svenska narkotikapolitiken bygger i stor utsträckning på teorin att narkotika förändrar kroppens funktionssätt och leder till att individen förlorar kontrollen över sitt liv. I denna bok är drogernas biokemiska verkningar bara en av flera viktiga faktorer som uppmärksammas.

    Efter en presentation av biokemiskt tänkande om narkotika förklaras varför detta synsätt måste kompletteras med psykosociala variabler. Grundtesen är att kunskap om samhälleliga processer och mänskliga relationer behövs för att förstå beteenden som framträder sedan drogerna startat processer i kroppen. Genom att sammanlänka natur- och samhällsvetenskapliga föreställningar presenteras ett biopsykosocialt perspektiv.

    Grundad på deltagande observationsstudier på narkotikascenen i Stockholm har en modell utvecklats för att förklara varför vissa individer som prövar narkotika ger sig in i långvarig och självdestruktiv drogkonsumtion. Med utgångspunkt i deras livserfarenheter förs en diskussion om hur vi kan förebygga narkotikaproblem - dels genom åtgärder på samhällsnivån och dels genom att hjälpa föräldrar förstå vad de kan göra för att skydda sina barn.

    Invandrare och problematisk konsumtion av narkotika2009In: Alkohol & Narkotika, ISSN 0345-0732, Vol. 103, no 4, p. 10-12Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Under åren mellan de två senaste undersökningarna av det tunga missbruket steg antalet invandrare som är problematiska konsumenter av narkotika mycket kraftigt. Ökningstakten var betydligt snabbare än bland svenskar och procentuellt sett långt överskrider ökningen av antalet invandrare i landet under samma period.

    I delstudie 1 gjordes en kunskapsöversikt där ca 100 vetenskapliga artiklar ingick. Syftet var att jämföra invandrares livsvillkor med svenskars vad gäller 1) arbetsmarknad, 2) ekonomi, 3) hälsa, 4) boende, 5) utbildning, 6) socialtjänstens verksamhet, 7) övrigt deltagande i samhället. I studien framkom ett återkommande trappstegsmönster med inrikes födda med svensk bakgrund på högsta steget och flyktingar från tredje världen (Asien, Afrika och Latinamerika) med kort vistelsetid i Sverige på det lägsta. Övriga invandrargrupper intar mellanpositioner.

    I delstudie 2 jämfördes uppväxt- och levnadsförhållanden hos individer med utländsk bakgrund som var aktuella på socialtjänsten i Stockholms stad p.g.a. tungt narkotikamissbruk med en matchad kontrollgrupp som inte var aktuell hos socialtjänsten. Fokus var på de sju områden som studerades i delstudie 1. Jämfört med kontrollgruppen har undersökningspopulationen haft betydligt sämre uppväxtvillkor, och som vuxna lever de under avsevärt svårare förhållanden.

    En del implikationer som de två studiernas resultat har för primärprevention diskuteras.

    Legalisera narkotika?: Ett diskussionsunderlag2011Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I huvudsak bygger den svenska narkotikapolitiken på föreställningar om drogernas biokemiska effekter på kroppen – och i förlängningen på människors beteende. I detta verk presenteras och skärskådas denna teoribildning, och ett alternativt sätt att betrakta narkotika introduceras.

              Därefter genomförs en kritisk granskning av det prohibitionistiska tänkandet som vår drogpolicy är exempel på, och centrala element i den internationella legaliseringsdebatten presenteras. En viktig slutsats är att vår narkotikapolitik medför mycket allvarliga negativa konsekvenser, men samtidigt finns inget fullständigt program som vi med bestämdhet vet skulle fungera bättre. Därför måste vi erkänna för oss själva att vi inte har hela lösningen och att vi måste pröva oss fram. Principerna för ”det experimenterande samhället” presenteras, liksom konkreta exempel på hur man kan gå tillväga.

              Eftersom många som vill förnya narkotikapolitiken betraktar internationella drogkonventioner som ett hinder mot nödvändigt nytänkande belyses FN:s betydelse i sammanhanget.

              Bokens mest centrala slutsats är att det är omöjligt att vinna kriget mot narkotikan. Därför måste vi sluta fred – dvs. lära oss leva med droger. För att kunna göra detta måste det skapas ett klimat där en ny drogpolitik kan växa fram. Som ett första steg ges konkreta förslag både på ämnen som behöver diskuteras och på tänkbara åtgärder som skulle kunna prövas.

    Samhällsproblem2010Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna antologi har tre huvudsakliga mål:

    1. att ur sociologisk synvinkel presentera viktiga samhällsprocesser i dagens Sverige,

    2. att relatera olika typer av sociala problem till dessa samhällspro­cesser och

    3. att presentera aktuell statistik som belyser omfånget av ett antal sociala problem i vårt land i dag.

    Boken består av tre delar. Den inledande delen behandlar Sveriges ekonomiska och sociala struktur. I var sitt kapitel diskuteras social ojämlikhet, makt och arbetslivet.

       I antologins andra del diskuteras fyra områden där stora förändringar har ägt rum och alltjämt pågår: boendet, familjen, migration och åldrandet.

       Med utgångspunkt i tidigare kapitlel behandlar den sista delen fyra företeelser som de flesta betraktar som sociala problem: narkotika, alkohol, brottslighet och psykisk ohälsa.

    The evolution of Swedish drug policy2004In: Journal of Drug Issues, ISSN 0022-0426, E-ISSN 0022-0426, Vol. 34, no 3, p. 551-576Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In order to understand any drug policy one must take into consideration its various components: assumptions about human nature, cultural and political traditions, the activities of different interest groups, theoretical framework, and the like. This paper discusses these aspects of Swedish drug policy as a means of shedding light on why Sweden, widely renowned as a humanitarian and rational country, has been one of the staunchest proponents of what some people consider to be inhumane and irrational drug policies. The author argues that Sweden's drug policy is basically logical, given the nation's cultural understanding and assumptions about alcohol (assumptions that have been transferred to other drugs as well). However, due to changes both within and outside of the country, alternative paradigms are gradually gaining ground, and there are indications that change in Swedish drug policy may be forthcoming.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the study was to examine the possibilities and difficulties for social workers whom work with individuals on long-term economic support. We used a qualitative method and interviewed six social workers from one municipality. We chose to use two theoretical perspectives, Empowerment and KASAM (Feeling of context), when analyzing the results and the study's empire was analyzed using a phenomenological and hermeneutic approach. Our results showed that the interviewees own view, on the work with individuals on long-term economic support, was that it is permeated by high workload, limited scope for action and difficulties in meeting with clients. The interviewees also stated that the organization, laws and guidelines affect the work with clients to a substantial extent and the ability to work out ideas with managers and colleagues is a great support.

    Key words: social work, social worker, long-term, economic support.

    Hemtjänsten-Arbetet som går hem: -En studie om hemtjänstpersonalens arbetssituation2008Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Det har skett stora förändringar inom den svenska äldreomsorgen, där bl.a. arbetsuppgifterna inom hemtjänsten har gått från social service till mer omvårdande arbetsuppgifter. Det är idag också allt vanligare att verksamheter drivs genom självstyrande arbetsgrupper där mer ansvar har lagts på arbetsgruppen. Syftet med denna studie är att förstå hur hemtjänstpersonal på en utvald arbetsplats upplever sin arbetssituation. Genom intervjuer av hemtjänstpersonal framkom att de anser att arbetet har förbättrats när det gäller den fysiska arbetssituationen men den psykiska arbetssituationen kan upplevas som stressig genom förändrade arbetsuppgifter i form av administrativa arbetsuppgifter som har lagts på arbetsgrupperna. Detta kan i viss mån påverka deras hälsa. Respondenterna upplever en viss delaktighet och inflytande i sitt arbete där framförallt arbetstider och planering av arbetet görs av arbetsgruppen själv.
