Seeing is a prerequisite for being able to help : A qualitative paper about how ADHD is presented in the National Board of Health and Welfare’s documents (English)
Abstract [sv]

I denna uppsats granskas Socialstyrelsens dokument för att undersöka hur ADHD presenteras. Ett speciellt fokus har varit att undersöka hur köns- och genusskillnader i relation till ADHD beskrivs och vidare om och på vilket sätt Socialstyrelsens uppdrag om jämställdhetsintegrering framträder i dokumenten. För att uppnå syftet med uppsatsen har en kritisk textanalys med en maktanalytisk ansats bedrivits för att granska delar av Socialstyrelsens kunskapsmaterial och även en lägesrapport kring ADHD. Resultatet av analysen visar att Socialstyrelsens dokument i vissa delar beskriver ADHD på ett stigmatiserande och diskriminerande sätt vilket kan bidra till exkludering och socialt förtryck. Socialstyrelsen bidrar delvis även till att upprätthålla bilden av ADHD som en pojk-diagnos vilket kan leda till att flickor missas, då flickornas symtom och upplevelser inte beskrivs på ett utförligt sätt i dokumenten. Resultaten i uppsatsen pekar även på att uppdragen Socialstyrelsen har haft gällande jämställdhet inte har implementerats i alla delar av materialet, vilket medför att målen om jämställdhet inte har uppnåtts i alla avseenden.

Abstract [en]

In this paper, documents from the National Board of Health and Welfare in Sweden is examined to investigate how ADHD is presented. A particular focus has been to investigate how sex and gender differences in relation to ADHD are described and further if and in what way the National Board of Health and Welfare's mission on gender integration appears in the documents. To achieve the purpose of this paper, a critical text analysis with a power analytical approach has been conducted to review parts of the National Board of Health and Welfare's material and reports on ADHD. The result of the analysis shows that the National Board of Health and Welfare's document in some parts describes ADHD in a stigmatizing and discriminatory manner, which can contribute to exclusion and social oppression. The National Board of Health and Welfare also partly contributes to maintaining the image of ADHD as a boy's diagnosis, which may cause girls to be overlooked in diagnosis, as the girls' symptoms and experiences are not described in an adequate way in the documents. The results in the paper also show that the gender equality-mission has not been implemented in all parts of the material, which means that the political goals of gender equality have not been achieved in all respects.
