    Changing children's public perception of social work: A narrative evaluation of an educational intervention about social services2024Ingår i: Journal of Social Work, ISSN 1468-0173, E-ISSN 1741-296XArtikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Summary: This article explores children's learning experiences from taking part in an educational intervention about social services in school. Data were collected from six group interviews with 27 children after they had participated in lessons about social services. Following a narrative evaluation approach, the analysis focuses on the narratives of change that are made visible through the children's shared reflections about their learning experiences. Findings: In their narratives of change, the children presented the educational intervention as meaningful for them because it increased their knowledge about social services as a possible support function for children and families. Some of the children related their previous more negative perceptions of social services to a collective story building on the idea that social services take children away from their families. Through the educational intervention, this collective story changed in part into another collective story building on the idea that social services help children and families to improve their relationships. Applications: The study shows that an educational intervention about social services in school has the potential to increase children's knowledge about social services and to influence in a positive direction the collective stories that shape public perceptions of social work. Although such changes in collective stories can be expected to benefit social work practice, welfare professionals must be careful to promote opportunities for children to share experiences of social services that challenge, as well as align with, any of these collective stories.

    Moving Through a Textual Space Autistically2024Ingår i: Journal of Medical Humanities, ISSN 1041-3545, E-ISSN 1573-3645, Vol. 45, s. 17-34Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is an investigation of neurodivergent reading practices. It is a collectively written paper where the focus is as much on an autoethnographic exploration of our autistic readings of autism/autistic fiction as it is on the read texts themselves. The reading experiences described come primarily from Yoon Ha Lee's Dragon Pearl (2019) and Dahlia Donovan's The Grasmere Cottage Mystery (2018), which we experience as opposite each other in how they depict their neurodivergent characters and speak to us as autistic readers. Through the article, we describe a formation of neurodivergent (critical) collective readings of autism/autistic fiction. The article contributes to an academic and activistic discourse around neurodivergent reader responses and power relations between neurodivergent and neurotypical readers and authors.

    Ukrainian refugees' reception in Swedish sports clubs: 'deservingness' and 'promising victimhood'2024Ingår i: European Journal of Social Work, ISSN 1369-1457, E-ISSN 1468-2664, Vol. 27, nr 2, s. 267-280Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    An emergent discourse along with a small, but growing, body of empirical research scrutinises how Ukrainian refugees are being treated differently compared to other refugee populations and how western societies construct 'hierarchies of victims'. For social work, a discipline designated to combat inequity, there is a strong incentive to understand if these hierarchies exist within welfare-providing organisations. This paper explores the Swedish sports movement's reception of Ukrainian refugees vis-a-vis other refugee populations through semi-structured interviews with sports representatives. The theoretical lens used is the perspective on 'promising victimhood', where refugees are framed as more or less worthy of the nation-state's protection and welfare benefit. The results show two themes. Ukrainian refugees are perceived to be culturally- and economically better 'performers'; they share Swedish values and are perceived as willing to contribute to Swedish society, whereas other refugee groups are depicted as lazy and culturally deviant. Second, the perception of Russia as a threat to Europe makes respondents sympathise to a greater extent with Ukrainian refugees. This sympathy is increased when representatives consider Ukrainian refugees' demographic characteristics: most are women and children. The results show that social work needs to be vigilant, and challenge, these ideas to not facilitate inequalities in refugees' reception.

    Kritisk kriminologi: Kriminalitet, kriminalisering och viktimisering2024Ingår i: Kriminologiska teorier: och hur man använder dem / [ed] Rikard Liljenfors, Lund: Studentlitteratur AB, 2024, 1, s. 141-160Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta kapitel redogör för framväxten av en kritisk kriminologisk tradition. Kritisk kriminologi erbjuder perspektiv på relationen mellan lag och ordning, inte sällan med blicken fäst på orättvisor och hur patriarkatet, klassamhället och rasismen producerar ojämlikhet. Det är en heterogen idéströmning, där meningar går isär kring vilken roll kön, klass och föreställningar om ras/etnicitet bör tillskrivas i forskningen. Kännetecknande för traditionen är emellertid kritiken av huvudfåran inom disciplinen, samt insikten att samhällsstrukturer och maktrelationer måste tas i beaktande i studier av kriminalitet. Därutöver riktas fokus till processer av kriminalisering och viktimisering.

    Tenants' movements in Europe: From working-class struggles to marginalization2024Ingår i: Handbook on Urban Social Movements / [ed] Anna Domaradzka; Pierre Hamel, Cheltenham: Edward Elgar Publishing, 2024, s. 97-113Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Tenants’ movements have been part of European history for over one hundred years and are still unevenly studied. They developed in reaction to the housing shortages and poor living conditions at the end of the nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth century and were closely linked to the labour movements of this period. Tenants’ mobilizations developed differently in various national contexts and achieved varying degrees of success. In many cases they succeeded in making an impact on the living conditions of the working classes by demanding affordable housing and improved housing standards. Their development in recent decades has, however, been affected by the commodification of housing and the recurrent political and economic crises, which are interlinked and affect collective mobilization and identification among tenants. As the housing crisis deepens across Europe, fuelled by housing financialization, climate and economic crises, tenants are again mobilizing – this time from a more marginal position than ever.

    Facilitating migrant youths’ inclusion into Swedish sport clubs in underserved areas2024Ingår i: Nordic Social Work Research, ISSN 2156-857X, E-ISSN 2156-8588, Vol. 14, nr 1, s. 121-135Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish sports movement has gained an increasingly profound role in addressing social issues. One such issue is migrant youths’ social inclusion in underserved areas, and the underlying assumption is that sports clubs fulfill an important function here. However, retaining migrant youths in organized sports in these areas is difficult, and sports clubs often struggle with the resources to satisfy social policies. This paper explored the practices of 12 experienced Swedish sports clubs to illuminate the strategies deployed to recruit and retain migrant youths in underserved areas. Sports clubs were conceptualized as local development-initiatives according to Rothman’s community work classification, and the results were analysed with Bronfenbrenner’s Person-Process-Context-Time framework. The results show that sports clubs are run by compassionate and locally embedded individuals, but that the representatives’ different forms of capital and sensitivity differentiate their success. Three processes are stressed as essential. Clubs need to establish robust relationships with migrant youths’ parents. Secondly, since clubs are contingent on driven, but strained, individuals, it is imperative to recruit and utilize (migrant) youth trainers. Finally, sports clubs must work in tandem with important institutions, such as the school. In summary, sports clubs must adopt creative strategies, and have resilience, time, and support. These findings indicate that enabling migrant youths’ inclusion into sports requires holistic solutions.

    A room for trust, comfort, and togetherness: Lessons learned from focus groups in digital rooms in a research project on Swedish eldercare during Covid-192024Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction: This paper draws on practice-oriented participatory social work research on moral stress and moral agency in Swedish eldercare. We discuss lessons learned from conducting online focus group interviews with representatives for three vocational categories: care workers, needs assessors and first line managers.  

    Method: We discuss experiences of, and lessons learned from conducting digital focus groups.

    Empirical findings: The results highlight the need of rigorous preparations, the importance of creating trust and a feeling of togetherness and making room for discussion and reflection.

    Reflections and discussion: Digital focus groups’ technical aspects that at a first sight appear as obstacles in data collection, can also serve as ‘power equalizers’ between informants and researchers. For instance, when the informants’ technical knowledge exceeds that of the researchers, the informants can help the researchers navigating on the communication platform. Another more evident advantage of digital focus groups is related to aspects of time and space. Participants can join from different locations, even different parts of the world to share knowledge and experiences. The digital focus group is also resource effective and in line with sustainability goals, as participants do not need to travel to be physically present at the same location.

    Predatory commodification and housing renovation2024Ingår i: Journal of Urban Affairs, ISSN 0735-2166, E-ISSN 1467-9906, Vol. 46, nr 4, s. 682-700Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores the renovation of housing governed by two tenure formsin Sweden, rental and cooperative housing. Based on a relational approach,we argue that despite requiring a similar need of maintenance at regularintervals, renovation in rental housing takes a substantially different formcompared to cooperatives, regarding the extent of the work, the involvement of, and the outcome for, the residents. With the concept of predatoryhousing commodification, we aim at examining how the process of housingrenovation is organized, what driving forces motivate renovations, along with how it impacts affected residents. Our contribution is twofold: firstly,we conceptualize renovation of housing as a commodifying process, withinthe realm of financialization, most often carried out brutally and contributingto housing inequality; secondly, our contribution is empirical as it covershousing renovation from a relational and contrasting perspective in a fieldthat is still under-studied in the Scandinavian context.

    Vem ropar för Alvar?2024Övrigt (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Trots att socialpolitisk och omsorgsinriktad forskning i flera decennier visat på klara samband mellan undermåliga arbetsvillkor i svensk äldreomsorg och bristande kvalitet kvarstår problemen. Kan samarbete mellan forskning och konst bidra till att vi går från ord till handling och agerar för en bättre äldreomsorg? I ett forskningsprojekt om moralisk stress och moraliskt aktörskap i svensk äldreomsorg möts forskning och konst. Kortfilmen ”Vem ropar för Alvar” är ett drama om undersköterskan Minna. Pressen på jobbet ökar samtidigt som hon balanserar privatlivet som ensamstående mor och granne till den äldre och något motsträvige Alvar. Filmen är ett konstnärligt projekt och reser frågor om äldreomsorgens bristande resurser, personalens svårigheter att få ihop vardag och arbetsliv och äldres ensamhet.

    Making sense of violent encounters: Exploring psychological, professional, and sociological (non-)understandings of security guard use of force2024Ingår i: Nordic Journal of Criminology, ISSN 2578-983X, Vol. 25, nr 2, s. 1-16Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to explore experiences of security guard violence in Sweden. Based on 15 in-depth interviews with citizens who have been exposed to the use of force, the analysis is guided by the following question: How are violent encounters with security guards in Sweden to be understood? The article highlights questions of race, class, and gender. It draws from the literature on police violence, transferring and developing its insights to the field of private policing. Adopting a multidimensional approach, the analysis differentiates between psychological, professional, and sociological explanations of the violence used by security guards, identifying a fourth frame: non-understandings. An argument advanced is that women in general and white women in particular grapple with their vulnerability in such situations.

    Gendered crisis approach: Exploring the gendered impact of Iranian sanctions on nascent entrepreneurship outcomes2024Ingår i: International Small Business Journal, ISSN 0266-2426, E-ISSN 1741-2870Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Using a gendered crisis approach, this study investigates the impact of sanctions on Iranian women's nascent entrepreneurial behaviours. Using data from the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor's individual-level data and sanctions intensity data on 10,781 individuals, aged 18-65 from 2008 to 2018, the findings indicate that sanctions lower the perceived opportunities to start a business for women more so than for men. Although sanctions did not influence perceived start-up skills, suggesting resilience among women amid the challenges, sanctions did reduce the fear of failure for women more so than for men. Policymakers, both in the Collective West and in Iran, can use these insights to develop gender-inclusive measures and support women's entrepreneurship in sanction-affected contexts.

    Young People's Narrated Experiences of Growing Up with Parents' Addiction Problems2024Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Children who grow up in an environment of substance abuse are at risk of developing mental ill health and own substance abuse – and even of dying at a young age. The current study aims to go behind these risks and examine what young people who grow up with addictive parents tell about their childhood experiences. Drawing on a narrative theoretical framework, narration is understood as a meaning-making and self-forming process, which is socio-culturally sensitive and have real inter-relational consequences. From a narrative approach it is explored how children of addictive parents through youth and early adulthood make sense of their parents’ addiction, how their self-image has been shaped in light of their childhood experiences, and how their relationship with the addictive parent is negotiated. Of particular interest is to identify possible turning points in these narrative processes and to explore their significance. Narrative analyses will be conducted on a longitudinal interview material consisting of interviews with 19 young people (12 women and 7 men) who grew up with at least one parent suffering from alcohol addiction. The participants attended a support group for children of parents with alcohol addiction in the early 1990s and were subsequently interviewed on 2–3 occasions from their teenage into adulthood.

    Sweden’s race to the bottom: Advancing a racial security state2024Ingår i: RACE & CLASS, ISSN 0306-3968, E-ISSN 1741-3125, artikel-id 03063968241242743Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article provides a close reading of the Swedish prime minister’s speech to the nation, held in September 2023 during a spiral of deadly shootings. From a criminological perspective it engages with the relation between policing a crisis and the crafting of a state project. Sweden’s punitive turn stands in sharp contrast to notions of the ‘Nordic model’ which was regarded as exceptionally humane. What, asks the author, are the main ideological features of the current Swedish government’s security state project?

    Theoretically, the article draws from critical contributions on racism and security. The analysis shows that the discourse of the Swedish head of government targets racialised populations, within and without the borders of the nation. The policing of the current crisis should be conceptualised as a race to the bottom − in a dual sense. Firstly, it is a reconfiguration of Sweden’s race relations. Second, it is a drift along a militarisation continuum.

    Exploring the working life of people with multiple sclerosis during the COVID-19 pandemic in Sweden2024Ingår i: BMC Public Health, E-ISSN 1471-2458, Vol. 24, artikel-id 1389Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [sv]

    Background The COVID-19 pandemic led to vast changes in working life and conditions in which we work. Thesechanges may affect people with multiple sclerosis (PwMS) differently. We aimed to describe the working situation ofPwMS during the COVID-19 pandemic and the pandemic’s impact on their working lives.

    Methods All individuals aged 20–50 listed in the Swedish Multiple Sclerosis Registry were invited to participate inan online survey in 2021. Closed and open-ended responses linked to individual-level register data were used in this exploratory mixed-methods study. Differences in the proportions reporting specific impacts were assessed with chisquare tests by sex, MS severity, education, and profession. The open-ended answers were analysed through contentanalysis.

    Results Over 8500 PwMS were invited (52% response rate). We included the 3887 respondents who answered questions about the impact of the pandemic on working life. Most (93.7%) reported being in paid work. An impactof the ongoing pandemic to one’s daily occupation was reported by 26.2%, with different characteristics observedacross the impacts. Four categories of type of answers were identified from the open-ended answers: Direct impacton one’s occupation, Disclosing or concealing MS in the workplace, Worry and uncertainty, and Broader impact to lifesituation.

    Conclusions PwMS navigated the pandemic by interrupting as well as continuing their working lives. Many PwMSreported that the pandemic did not affect their work situation. However, the reported impacts differed among theparticipants and a sense of uncertainty and worry was often underlying their statements. Lessons from the pandemicmay support future work participation.Keywords SARS-CoV-2, Containment measures, W

    Collaboration in the return-to-work process after sick leave due to common mental disorders: a qualitative study of stakeholders’ views on goals and roles2024Ingår i: BMC Public Health, E-ISSN 1471-2458, Vol. 24, nr 1, artikel-id 1567Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: This study explores how the goals of collaboration in the return-to-work (RTW) process for people with common mental disorders are described by the stakeholders involved, and how they experience stakeholders’ roles and responsibilities in relation to these goals.

    Methods: Interviews were conducted with 41 participants from three Swedish regions. Nine of the participants were workers, six employer representatives, four occupational health professionals, four social insurance officers, 18 RTW coordinators and five physicians. Thematic analysis was conducted.

    Results: Three main themes and overarching goals when collaborating on RTW were identified. In the first theme, ‘creating an informative environment’, all stakeholders emphasised clear roles and responsibilities. The second theme, ‘striving for consensus in an environment of negotiations’, addressed negotiations about when and how to collaborate, on what and with whom, and reveal different views on stakeholders’ goals, roles and responsibilities in collaboration. The third theme identified goals for ‘creating a supportive environment’ for both workers and other stakeholders. Coordinators are found to have an important role in achieving a supportive environment, and in neutralising power imbalances between workers and their employers and social insurance officers.

    Conclusions: Competing goals and priorities were identified as hindering successful collaboration, contributing to a spectrum of complex versus easy RTW collaboration. This study suggests some basic conditions for achieving a collaborative arena that is neutral in terms of power balance, where all stakeholders can share their views.

    Standardhöjning eller underhåll?: Deltagande och hållbarhet i renoveringar av hyresbostäder2023Samlingsverk (redaktörskap) (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Rapporten redovisar resultaten från ett forskningsprojekt som studerat och analyserat hyresgästers deltagande i renoveringar av hyreshus, byggda huvudsakligen under perioden 1960 – 1975. Projektets syfte har varit att undersöka om, i vilken utsträckning och hur, hyresgästers inflytande påverkar hur renoveringar uppfyller de hållbarhetsmål som anges under rubriken Hållbara städer och samhällen på Agenda 2030. Vi har specifikt intresserat oss för två aspekter i delmål 11. För det första gäller det ambitionen att skapa en inkluderande och hållbar urbanisering och en deltagandebaserad, integrerad och hållbar planering och förvaltning av bostäder. För det andra gäller det målet att skapa ekonomiskt överkomliga bostäder för alla. Med denna utgångspunkt ställer vi frågor om 1) hur hyresgäster bjuds in till dialoger i renoveringsprocesser, och i vilken mån detta inbegriper konflikter mellan olika intressenter, 2) hur hyresgäster självorganiserar för att påverka renoveringar och hur relationen ser ut mellan denna självorganisering och den av fastighetsägaren organiserade dialogen, 3) vad hyresgästerna önskar ha inflytande över, och vilket inflytande de får rent faktiskt, samt 4) hur dialogen och självorganiseringen påverkar uppmärksammandet och hanterandet av social, ekologisk och ekonomisk hållbarhet i renoveringen.

    Vi lägger i rapporten vikt vid politisk styrning och förändringar på bostadspolitikens och stadsutvecklingens område eftersom ett övergripande resultat är att samråd och hyresgästers möjligheter till inflytande vid renoveringar är kraftigt begränsade och att detta till väsentliga delar är en effekt av strukturella villkor. Det gäller framför allt de villkor som ges av de förändringar av den nationella bostadspolitiken som ägt rum sedan 1990-talet. En viktig slutsats med avseende på deltagande i renovering är att hyresgästers självorganisering avsevärt förbättrar möjligheterna till inflytande över renoveringsprocessen. Framför allt har vi sett ett inflytande som resulterat i: 1) mindre omfattande renovering och därmed lägre hyreshöjning; 2) införande av olika renoverings- (och därmed hyres-) nivåer, 3) intrappning av den nya hyransamt 4) påverkan på utformningen av förändringar på fasader och gårdar. Med avseende på hållbarhet betonar vi att tidsperspektiven måste vara tydliga – hur länge och för vem ska något vara hållbart? Vidare måste maktrelationer explicitgöras och balanseras – vem kan ha inflytande på boendesituationen, och vilka perspektiv och kunskaper avgör vad som anses hållbart?

    Managing Vocational Work, Achieving and Sustaining Work Performance: Support and Self-management amongst Young Autistic Adults in the Context of Vocational Support Interventions in Sweden2023Ingår i: British Journal of Social Work, ISSN 0045-3102, E-ISSN 1468-263X, nr 1, s. 258-275Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [sv]

    In this article, we explore experiences of support and self-management amongst young autistic adults in the context of vocational support interventions in Sweden. We analyse how young autistic men use different strategies to manage their vocational work and the support they need to maintain, achieve and sustain their work performance. Data consist of eleven interviews with 4 autistic young adult men in different work environments where vocational support interventions are implemented to different degrees. One finding concludes that the interviewees are affected by and try to adapt to neurotypical norms and expectations about working life and adulthood. Although individualised coping strategies can be helpful, it is important for employers and formal support persons to understand and acknowledge that individual emotional and problem-solving coping strategies are demanding and need to be combined with adaptations in the working environment. Another finding concludes how work managers act as gatekeeper in the vocational support system the young autistic men aspire to access and in which they need to manage their work performance. Thus, social workers must provide structured and well-coordinated formal work support by both involving the autistic clients’ employers, work managers and informal networks.

    "The home isn't like a safe space for them": Ideals of home and family relationships in children's talk about family adversity and help-seeking2023Ingår i: Children & society, ISSN 0951-0605, E-ISSN 1099-0860, Vol. 37, nr 2, s. 452-468Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to explore how schoolchildren reflect on children's help-seeking in the context of family adversity after participating in lessons about the child welfare services. A thematic narrative analysis was conducted, building on participating pupils' shared reflections on a fictitious story about two siblings living in adverse family circumstances. The analysis suggests that the pupils held a strong belief on children's rights to a safe home with supportive parental relationships, and they expressed an optimistic view on children's opportunities to receive help to achieve positive change when their rights regarding these issues were not met.

    Co-designing a dynamic tool to enhance participation for young people: A participatory design project with young service users and social workers2023Ingår i: Children and youth services review, ISSN 0190-7409, E-ISSN 1873-7765, Vol. 147Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    There is an emphasis on user participation in social work. The arguments derive from both a democratic and a consumerist approach, aiming on the one hand to equalize power between users and professionals, and on the other hand, for more efficient and legitimized services. However, research shows that there is a lack of knowledge about methods and conditions for realizing user participation in social services. In this exploratory study, grounded in participatory design, a set of four workshops took place, enabling young people, social workers and researchers to participate in the design process. The data were analysed with affinity analysis, a technique whereby the data are sorted with “I” labels, to stay close to the material. Also, written feedback and reflections from participants as well as oral feedback and reflections were generated, documented and integrated with the affinity analysis. The main findings concern how the participatory approach revealed tensions between the participants’ different perspectives on user participation, which in turn contributed to the shaping of a dynamic tool. The findings imply that the tool needed to be both “fair and square” to ensure equality for all young people, and dynamic and flexible to meet the uniqueness of each young person. Moreover, the tool needed to be both rich and contextualized to meet the need for information and participation throughout the transition process, and simple and accessible to meet the acute nature of many transitions as well as the overall time constraints within social work practice. The research process reached the level of contribution, with involvement in some but not all stages labelled as collaboration. The wide range of expertise involved in the design process provides a good basis for the tool to be able to address the need for increased user participation in social work practice.

    Competence and professionalisation among return-to-work coordinators in Sweden: comparisons by original profession2023Ingår i: European Journal of Social Work, ISSN 1369-1457, E-ISSN 1468-2664Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [sv]

    Rehabiliteringskoordinatorer är en ny yrkesroll inom hälso – och sjukvården som stödjer sjukskrivna patienter i rehabiliteringsprocessen. Koordinatorerna saknar dock en tydlig roll – och kompetensbeskrivning, och det faktum att yrkesrollen saknar en gemensam yrkesutbildning och innehas och utvecklas av olika professioner gör den unik. Syftet med studien var att undersöka skillnader i kompetens baserat på rehabiliteringskoordinatorers olika grundprofessioner, samt vilka professioner de menade hade bäst kompetens för att arbeta som rehabiliteringskoordinator. Alla rehabiliteringskoordinatorer i en region bjöds in att svara på en enkät (89% svarsfrekvens). Både kvantitativa och kvalitativa analysmetoder användes. Resultaten visade att kuratorer hade mer vidareutbildning än övriga professioner, särskilt inom samtalsmetoder, och kuratorerna uppgav mindre behov av ytterligare kompetens inom områdena jämställdhet, sociala problem, försäkringar/bidrag och samtalsmetoder. Analysen av fritextsvaren visade att holistisk syn, personlighet framför profession samt rådgivning och vägledning ansågs vara tre viktiga kompetensområden för rehabiliteringskoordinatorer. Arbetsterapeuter och socionomer ansågs ha mest passande kompetens för att arbeta som rehabiliteringskoordinator. Resultaten adresserar några gemensamma grundvärden, normer och viktiga kompetensområden för rehabiliteringskoordinatorer som kan bidra i utvecklingen av utbildning för rehabiliteringskoordinatorer och bana väg för deras professionaliseringsprocess.

    Legitimizing and Enacting Contradictory Ideals: Squatting in Sweden in the 1980s2023Ingår i: Social Movements in 1980s Sweden / [ed] Helena Hill; Andrés Brink Pinto, Cham: Palgrave Macmillan, 2023, s. 55-80Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Squatting in Sweden peaked in the 1980s. Stockholm and Gothenburg were the epicenters, among other smaller towns throughout the country. Researchers identified punk music, influences from abroad, anarchist ideas and the emergence of urban social movements as central to the increase in squatting during this decade. Only a fragmented picture of squatting events has been presented until now, however, often at the city level and during a limited period. This perspective fails to connect squatting actions across the country, and beyond its borders. Departing from the approach to squatting as a form of contentious repertoire, I will analyze how squatters negotiated and legitimized their actions, and in relation to different opponents. Special attention is given to the contradictions caused by different and sometimes contradictory ideals in the communication of the significance of squatting. Based on materials produced by the squatters and other secondary materials, this chapter explores the arenas of interactions, or fields where contentious actors interact within their own group or movement, or with the authorities and the police.

    Responsibilizing renovation: governing strategies and resistance in the context of the transformation of Swedish housing policy2023Ingår i: City, ISSN 1360-4813, E-ISSN 1470-3629, Vol. 27, nr 1-2, s. 209-231Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article contributes to the emerging body of literature in the field of urban studies that addresses the classical ‘division of labour’ between analyses of the workings of urban power at the macro- and micro-levels. Our theoretical framework aims to capture how processes of power are exercised in processes of urban restructuring. In the field of gentrification studies there have been calls for theoretical developments based on analyses of various local contexts in which rent gaps may be exploited in similar yet varied ways. We contribute to this discussion through an analysis of governing strategies and protests linked to urban restructuring in the context of the so-called Million Programme in Sweden’s two largest cities. In particular, we address the consequences of public housing companies being forced to operate according to ‘business principles’. Importantly, we demonstrate how advanced liberal government, under the influence of neoliberal ideology, has largely worked through a process of responsibilization. We discern a chain of responsibilization leading from the macro-, via the meso-, to the micro-level – ultimately involving the individual tenant; and highlight how a struggle that we call a politics of responsibility has taken place around each link in the chain.

    Ukrainian refugees and the Swedish sports movement: new opportunities and challenges2023Ingår i: European Sport Management Quarterly, ISSN 1618-4742, E-ISSN 1746-031XArtikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Research Question: The war in Ukraine has forced approximately eight million people into neighboring European countries. As part of sports clubs’ societal commitment, many have received Ukrainian refugees. However, compared to previous so-called ‘refugee waves’, forced migration from Ukraine is different in terms of demographics, culture, and (sports) traditions. This paper aimed to assess these ‘new’ nuances and their implications for the European sports movement. Research Methods: Data were gathered through 17 semi-structured interviews with Swedish sports club representatives, analyzed with a critical realist-inspired thematic analysis, and interpreted with Bronfenbrenner’s process-person-context-time framework. Results and Findings: The representatives expressed that Ukrainian refugees are more in-tune with organized sports compared to other refugee populations; however, there are also culturally discrepant ideas about sports. Specifically, there seems to be an influx of skilled (youth) refugees, who approach sports in ways incompatible with Swedish conventions about youth sports. While the sporting capital often enables easier inclusion, it also presents challenges in extreme cases. Implications: The findings show that the European sports movement must be attentive to new challenges and opportunities associated with the current humanitarian crisis. Sports representatives need to balance culturally sensitive approaches with ethical considerations regarding youth sports.

    Understanding Central- and Eastern European migrants’ inclusion into sport: a Delphi study2023Ingår i: International Journal of Sport Policy and Politics, ISSN 1940-6940, E-ISSN 1940-6959, Vol. 15, nr 1, s. 109-124Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The world is, again, witnessing a humanitarian ‘crisis’, as over seven million Ukrainian refugees have fled the border at the time of writing. Culturally sensitive practices are keys in leveraging sport for migrants. Yet, this research has not explored what cultural sensitivity is, regarding Central- and Eastern European (CEE) migrants. This paper assessed culturally contingent components when considering CEE migrants inclusion into European sport. The Delphi method was deployed, and three rounds of data collection were conducted. 19 CEE experts in sport (researchers, NGOs, governmental employees) were recruited to jointly produce a set of consensual directives. The results were analysed with Bronfenbrenner’s Process-Person-Context-Time model. The key agreements consisted of four significant themes. Facilitators included shared experiences of (organised) sport, and CEE migrants’ familiarity with other cultures. Barriers included the nature of labour migration on time- and economy to engage in leisure, and stereotypical and misleading perceptions of ‘post-soviet residents’. In conclusion, the results show that a range of similarities may exist between CEE and European (sport) contexts that could be conducive to CEE migrants’ inclusion into European sport, but that practitioners will need to be aware of sensitive Soviet history.

    Discourses about children’s participation and child perspective: A comparative study of the policy documents that guide social work in Sweden and Germany2023Ingår i: Baltic Worlds, ISSN 2000-2955, E-ISSN 2001-7308, Vol. XVI, nr 1-2, s. 90-105Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article compares Swedish and German social work, including policy documents, and discusses the policies of these two countries regarding the implementation of children’s rights in social work practice. The analysis focuses on two main concepts that are used in social work practice: the concept of a child perspective in Sweden and the concept of participation in Germany. This study aims to investigate the ideas, values and guidelines mediated by political institutions to social workers in the field. The results showed that both the Swedish and German policy documents gave the distinct impression that the concepts had been properly implemented and formed part of child welfare practice. In the Swedish context, the idea of both making children visible and the formal aspects were highlighted, whereas in Germany, participation was related to an educational discourse. However, it is argued here that the discourses suggest that there is unequal relationship between children and adults, and we conclude that social workers must contribute to the child’s status as an active subject.

    Knowing and accepting oneself: Exploring possibilities of self-awareness among working autistic young adults2023Ingår i: Autism, ISSN 1362-3613, E-ISSN 1461-7005, Vol. 27, nr 5, s. 1417-1425Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Autistic people have historically been described as incapable of developing a deeper sense of self-awareness, and autistic understandings of self-awareness have been largely disregarded. The aim of this study is to explore the way young autistic adults try to understand their functionality and who they are, or to develop their sense of self-awareness, in work and in private life contexts. In 12 qualitative interviews conducted with four autistic adults without learning difficulties, we identified a rich set of reflections on knowing and accepting oneself. The overarching theme of self-knowledge has three subthemes: learning from previous experiences, learning about oneself by securing the support of others, and understanding and accepting autistic functionality. The strategy of self-knowledge was used by these young adults to help them achieve functional lives in the work and private domains. Our results show that young autistic adults both actively explore and develop their self-awareness. We suggest that it is important for practitioners and employers working with autistic individuals to engage with their journeys of self-awareness as a vital part of understanding and supporting them.

    Cutting our own keys: New possibilities of neurodivergent storying in research2023Ingår i: Autism, ISSN 1362-3613, E-ISSN 1461-7005, Vol. 27, nr 5, s. 1235-1244Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    A lot of people who do research are also neurodivergent (such as being autistic or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), but neurodivergent people do not always feel welcome in research spaces which are often shaped around neurotypical people. Some neurotypical researchers lack confidence in talking to neurodivergent people, and others feel like neurodivergent people might not be able to do good research about other people who are like them without being biased. We think it is important that all researchers are able to work well together, regardless of whether they are neurotypical, autistic, or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (or any other neurotype) – in truly ‘neurodiverse’ teams. In this article we talk about how to create better spaces for all researchers, where we feel valued for who we are and take each others’ needs into account. We do this using some approaches from other areas of research and talking about how they relate to our personal experiences of being neurodivergent researchers with our own personal stories. This article adds to a growing work on how we can work with people who are different from us, in more respectful and kind ways.

    A morphogenetic approach to sport and social inclusion: a case study of good will’s reproductive power2023Ingår i: Sport in Society: Cultures, Media, Politics, Commerce, ISSN 1743-0437, E-ISSN 1743-0445, Vol. 26, nr 5, s. 837-853Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Recently, it has been suggested that critical realism offers a potential lens to understand sport and social change. This paper utilizes a case study with a Swedish martial arts club, renowned for its social inclusion culture and undertaking of a refugee initiative. I analyze this material according to Archer’s (1995) morphogenetic approach. The results show that several issues prevent the refugees’ social inclusion. According to the morphogenetic approach, these issues are due to structural- and cultural conditions, which partially set the stage for how the club responds to diversity. In contemplating incidents that hamper the initiative, informants deliberated how refugees fail to adopt specific ways of training and behaving. The narratives reflect the broader Swedish political climate concerning migrants’ adaptation, where assimilation, rather than integration, is preferred. Thus, the paper contributes towards the (critical) realist-understanding of sport and social inclusion and offers insights into generative mechanisms that underpin exclusionary practices.

    A Nordic sport social work in the context of refugee reception2023Doktorsavhandling, sammanläggning (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Idrotten antas gynna positiva utfall, såsom god hälsa, utökat socialt nätverk med mera, och har alltmer kommit att ta plats som en aktör som adresserar sociala frågor. Den här avhandlingen, som består av sex publicerade artiklar, undersöker de förutsättningar som krävs för att svenska idrottsföreningar ska kunna inkludera underrepresenterade grupper, såsom människor med migrantbakgrund. Detta görs delvis i kontexten av konflikten i Ukraina, där ungefär 50.000 ukrainska människor nu befinner sig i Sverige. I sin helhet visar studierna på att idrottsföreningar, ofta i socioekonomiskt utsatta områden, har ett stort jobb framför sig. Det krävs tid, systematik och olika typer av kapital för att idrottsföreningarna ska kunna jobba hållbart med inkluderingsfrågor. Idrottsföreningarna behöver ofta någon, eller flera, med personligt driv, stark lokal förankring, och en förmåga att knyta idrottsföreningen till andra aktörer i samhället. I kontexten av detta argumenteras det för att idrottsföreningar och idrottens samhällsnytta diskuteras mer explicit i samband med som i socialt arbete kallas ’samhällsarbete’, för att tydligare karva ut och konceptualisera idrottens roll inom socialt arbetes forskning. I den senare delen av avhandlingen undersöks inkluderandet av ukrainska migranter, och hur detta har upplevts av idrottsföreningarna. Detta görs både ur ett pragmatiskt och ett kritiskt perspektiv i avhandlingens två avslutande studier. Nästintill alla idrottsföreningar är övervägande positivt inställda till ukrainska migranter och hur dessa har välkomnats in i föreningen men i ett fåtal fall finns det viss friktion kring träningstraditioner mellan ukrainska barns föräldrar och svenska tränare. I den avslutande studien visas det även på hur ukrainska migranter pratas om som mer ’förtjänta’ av en god inkludering jämfört med andra migrantgrupper. Detta grundas i idéer om ukrainare som mer kulturellt lika svenskar, att dom inte utgör ett hot såsom andra grupper av flyktingar upplevs göra, och att ukrainare är mer villiga att bidra till svenska samhället än andra grupper. Sammantaget så kartlägger avhandlingen en rad viktiga faktorer att tänka på när idrottsföreningar jobbar mot underrepresenterade grupper, men visar även på att idrottsföreningar stundtals särbehandlar vissa grupper – detta strider då mot den vedertagna idén om att idrott är till för alla, som vägleder svensk idrottsrörelse.

    Children’s invisibility, non-participation or limited participation can be associated with social workers’ experiences of losing focus of the child in their work, while at the same time navigating organisational and legal demands where a child perspective is strongly promoted. This article sheds light on social workers’ experiences of workingwith a child perspective and with children’s participation. Six in-depth interviews were conducted with professionals from social services and ngo s and from different child welfare services in Sweden. Our findings indicate that losing focus of the child is a common phenomenon that relates to the dominance of adult-centred practice and that child-centred methods need to be developed. Social workers from NGOs described having better opportunities for working in a child-centred way. Losing focus of the child mirrors the subordinated position of child-centred practice, proving that a child perspective and children’s participation are still inadequately anchored in social work practice.

    Organisational prerequisites for coordinating the return-to-work process for people with multimorbidity and psychosocial difficulties2023Ingår i: Disability and Rehabilitation, ISSN 0963-8288, E-ISSN 1464-5165, Vol. 5, nr 18, s. 2915-2924Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The return-to-work (RTW) process for people with multimorbidity and psychosocial difficulties can be complicated. This study explores the organisational prerequisites for coordinating these patients’ RTW processes from the perspective of coordinators in different clinical areas in Sweden.

    Material and methods: Six focus group interviews were conducted with 24 coordinators working in primary healthcare (PHC), psychiatric and orthopaedic clinics. The data were analysed thematically, inspiredby organisation theory.

    Results: Coordinators described varying approaches to people with multimorbidity and psychosocial difficulties, with more hesitancy among PHC coordinators, who were perceived by other coordinators as hindering patient flows between clinical areas. Most organisational barriers to RTW were identified in the healthcare sector. These were long waiting times, physicians drawing up inadequate RTW plans, coordinators being involved late in the sickness absence process, and lack of rehabilitation programmes for people with multimorbidity. The barriers in relation to organisations such as Social Insurance Agency and Employment Services were caused by regulations and differing perspectives, priorities, and procedures.

    Conclusion: Our findings indicate what is needed to improve the RTW process for patients with complex circumstances: better working conditions, steering, and guidelines; shorter waiting times; and a willingness among coordinators from different clinical areas to collaborate around patients.

    Strengthening the Notion of the ‘Village’ in Signs of Safety: A Luhmannian Perspective2023Ingår i: Practice, ISSN 0950-3153, E-ISSN 1742-4909, Vol. 35, nr 4, s. 297-307Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Signs of Safety’s child protection approach has recently been criticized for lacking in theory when it comes to the part of the framework that deal with the involvement of social networks. The article explores if it is possible to respond to this critique with the help of Niklas Luhmann’s systems theory. Luhmann’s systems theory was shown to be aligned with core components in Signs of Safety hence offering a possible theoretical underpinning to the parts of the framework that deal with social networks. Furthermore, by allowing us to reflect about how the simplicity of Signs of Safety synthesizes considerable complexities, the result may also be of use to counteract current tendency to falsely confuse the frameworks ambition to simplify the bureaucracy surrounding assessments with a quest to simplify social work thinking.

    Geographical distance between child and parent after a union dissolution in Sweden, 1974-20112023Ingår i: Demographic Research, ISSN 1435-9871, Vol. 48, artikel-id 17Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND Divorce is associated with a weakened relationship between the child and the nonresident parent, usually the father. This loss of contact is likely to be even further exacerbated if this parent lives at a substantial distance from the child. OBJECTIVE This paper analyzes how the distance between children and nonresident parents, the year after a parental separation, has changed during a 40-year period in Sweden, and whether this is related to changes in child custody policies. METHODS We use Swedish population register data that includes exact geographical coordinates for children and their nonresident parents in the year after separation. We analyze how average distance and the likelihood of living very close to, or very far from, a nonresident parent has changed over this period, using OLS and logistic regression models. RESULTS Results show a gradual decrease in the distance between children and nonresident parents from the 1970s until the early 1990s, after which the trend stalled at a low level. In 2011, 50% of all children lived within 2 kilometers of their nonresident parent. We find no evidence of direct policy effects, indicated by any sudden changes in distance after the introduction of a new custody policy. High-income parents have changed their post -divorce residential patterns at a faster pace than low-income parents. CONCLUSIONS Our results indicate a diffusion process where distances between children and nonresident parents gradually decreased until the 1990s. CONTRIBUTION This paper demonstrates that the change has not been directly influenced by custody law reforms promoting dual parent responsibility.

    Debt Problem of One Partner and Depressive Morbidity in the Other: A 2-Year Follow-up Register Study of Different-Sex Couples in Sweden2023Ingår i: Journal of Family and Economic Issues, ISSN 1058-0476, E-ISSN 1573-3475, Vol. 44, s. 1-15Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This study sets out to examine whether depressive morbidity varies by status of financial indebtedness of a spouse or cohabiting partner. For this purpose, individuals aged between 20 and 60 with a different-sex spouse/cohabiting partner with a registration date for a debt at the Swedish Enforcement Authority (SEA) during 2017 (n = 6979) are followed-up for a 2-year period for prescriptions of antidepressants and compared with a sample from the general Swedish population (n = 29,708). The analysis is based on penalized maximum likelihood logistic regressions. Both women and men were more likely to suffer from depressive morbidity if the spouse/cohabiting partner had been registered at the SEA in 2017 and was still active for a debt in the SEA’s register in 2018 (OR 1.31 and OR 1.57, respectively), irrespective of their own health, employment, socioeconomic status, and other background variables. This also held true for men if a wife/cohabiting partner had been registered at the SEA in 2017 but was no longer active for a debt in the SEA’s register in 2018 (OR 1.29). For women, on the other hand, only those with no history (11-year period) of prescription of psychotropic medications were also at an enhanced risk of depressive morbidity if a husband/cohabiting partner had gone from being registered for a debt at the SEA in 2017, to not being registered as active for a debt in the SEA’s register in 2018 (OR 1.24). The results reinforce the importance of acknowledging that negative effects of financial indebtedness extend beyond the individual debtor.

    Status of Debtor Registration at an Enforcement Authority and Risk of Nonfatal Suicide Attempt2023Ingår i: Crisis, ISSN 0227-5910, E-ISSN 2151-2396, Vol. 44, nr 3, s. 209-215Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Not much is known about whether paying unpaid debt is related to a reduced risk of suicidal behavior. Aims: To examine whether nonfatal suicide attempt varied by status of nonpayment of debt as registered at the Swedish Enforcement Authority (SEA). Method: People aged between 20 and 64 years with a registration date for an unpaid debt at the SEA during 2016 (n = 57,039) and registered as either active or inactive for a debt and/or a decision of debt reconstruction in the register in 2018 were followed up for a 2-year period for suicide attempt and compared with a sample from the general Swedish population (n = 301,714). Results: Those who were still active for a debt and/or a decision of debt reconstruction were about twice (Odds Ratio = 2.21) as likely to attempt suicide than those who no longer had an active debt in the SEA register. Limitations: The study was limited to suicide attempts that were registered as such in the National Patient Register. Conclusion: The results, based on unique nationwide register data, reinforce the importance of making tackling debt and financial distress part of current suicide prevention strategies. Professionals and others who interact with indebted people may be important gatekeepers in preventing suicide attempts.

    Digital distributive leadership in the time of the Covid-19 pandemic: New light on the transition from physical workplaces to digital spaces in Swedish eldercare2023Ingår i: British Journal of Social Work, ISSN 0045-3102, E-ISSN 1468-263X, Vol. 53, nr 5, s. 2603-2620Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The Covid-19 pandemic has had a huge effect on working life in many welfare sectors. An ongoing qualitative study on distributed leadership work in Swedish eldercare has highlighted the premises of needs assessment during the pandemic. This article applies the concepts of distributed leadership, space and temporality to shed new light on the transition from physical workplaces to digital spaces. The article stresses the importance of co-working, co-responsibility and close interaction between leaders and employees, and argues that the ongoing pandemic can help us understand how the digital transition is changing the premises for leadership work in eldercare needs assessments. The empirical material was derived from several organisational levels of needs assessment and both individual interviews and participant observations were conducted. The results confirm how managerial work is in a state of transition that changes the interaction between managers and the needs assessors. Both the challenges and the importance of interaction are enhanced in the digital space.
