Abstract [sv]

Uppsatsens syfte var att undersöka processen för hur socionomers professionella yrkesidentitet framträder. Hur identiteten utvecklas i förhållande till professionen, utvecklingen från student och i övergången till yrkeslivet. En narrativ intervjustudie har genomförts där fyra socionomer intervjuats, två socionomstudenter och två yrkesverksamma socionomer. Intervjuerna har sammanställts till narrativ. Det teoretiska ramverket som används är socialkonstruktivistiskt perspektiv, det framträdande jaget och begreppet professionell identitet. Tidigare forskning visar att utvecklingen av den professionella identiteten påbörjas innan utbildningen där utvecklingen fortsätter, det viktigaste inslaget anses vara praktiken. Socionomen har ett brett arbetsfält och den professionella identitetens utveckling har en stark påverkan av kollegor och lagar. Resultatet överensstämmer till stor del med tidigare forskning men visar också på en påverkan av samhällets uppfattning om socionomer. Under studierna skapas en förståelse för den professionella identiteten, den verksamhetsförlagda utbildningen ger studenten tillfälle att testa sin professionella identitet. Tidigare yrkeserfarenhet tolkas ha en roll i förståelsen av professionell identitet och skillnad mellan privat och professionell. I början av yrkeslivet görs en tydlig skillnad mellan professionell och privat identitet men med tiden flyter dessa ihop. De professionella understryker en stark påverkan av lagar och egenskaper som inte förenas med den privata identiteten. Socionomers professionella identitet är en oändlig process.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine the process of social workers professional identity emerges and its development from education to profession. Narrative interviews were conducted with four informants, two students and two social workers. Tools for analyzing the narratives and the identities are the term professional identity and narrative perspectives which are represented by the social constructivist perspective and prominent self.Previous research shows that the development of the professional identity can begin before and within the education. In the professional life, development of the professional identity has a strong influence dependent on colleagues and laws. The results are largely in line with previous research but also underline an impact on society's perceptions of social workers. During the studies, an understanding is created of the professional identity that students test in their internship. Previous professional experience is interpreted to have a role in understanding professional identity and the difference between private and professional. At the beginning of career, a clear distinction is made between professional and private identity, but over time, these also merge. The professionals emphasize a strong influence of laws that are not associated with private identity. Social workers professional identity is a never-ending process.
