    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Child-perceived parental support and knowledge in shared physical custody and other living arrangements for children2023Ingår i: JFR-JOURNAL OF FAMILY RESEARCH, ISSN 2699-2337, Vol. 35, s. 145-161Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: The aim of this paper is to develop an understanding of how child-perceived parental support and knowledge among children in Sweden differ across ten forms of residential arrangement. Background: Shared physical custody has become an increasingly common arrangement for children in separated families in many European countries. In an international comparison, Sweden has a high rate of parental union dissolution but also the highest prevalence of shared physical custody arrangements following divorce or separation. Over a third of all children with divorced or separated parents spend an equal amount of time living in both parental households. Method: We used data from the Swedish HBSC survey from 2013/14, which are focused on children in grades 5, 7 and 9 in the Swedish comprehensive school system (n= 7360) and used perceived parental support and perceived parental knowledge scales as dependent variables in multiple ordered logistic regressions conducted separately by the sex of the parent. Results: The results show that children in shared physical custody report higher levels of parental support and knowledge than children in sole physical custody and equally high as those who live in a two- parent family. Children living in non-symmetrical physical custody arrangements report lower levels of paternal support and knowledge than children whose parents share physical custody equally. Maternal support and knowledge does not differ between children living in symmetrical and non-symmetrical shared physical custody arrangements, whereas paternal support and knowledge is lower in families where the child lives in an unequal residential sharing arrangement with the mother as the main co-residential parent. Conclusion: Post-divorce living arrangements are clearly associated with the relationship between parents and children, with children in shared physical custody reporting stronger relationships than children in sole physical custody. The cross-sectional nature of the data prevents us from drawing conclusions on causality, however.

    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.

    Coordinators in the return-to-work process: Mapping their work models2023Ingår i: PLOS ONE, E-ISSN 1932-6203, Vol. 18, nr 8Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    PURPOSE: In recent decades, many countries have implemented return-to-work coordinators to combat high rates of sickness absence and insufficient collaboration in the return-to-work process. The coordinators should improve communication and collaboration between stakeholders in the return-to-work process for people on sickness absence. How they perform their daily work remains unexplored, and we know little about to what extent they collaborate and perform other work tasks to support people on sickness absence. This study examines which work models return-to-work coordinators use in primary healthcare, psychiatry and orthopaedics in Sweden. METHODS: A questionnaire was sent to all 82 coordinators in one region (89% response rate) with questions about the selection of patients, individual patient support, healthcare collaboration, and external collaboration. Random forest classification analysis was used to identify the models. RESULTS: Three work models were identified. In model A, coordinators were more likely to select certain groups of patients, spend more time in telephone than in face-to-face meetings, and collaborate fairly much. In Model B there was less patient selection and much collaboration and face-to-face meetings. Model C involved little patient selection, much telephone contact and very little collaboration. Model A was more common in primary healthcare, model C in orthopaedics, while model B was distributed equally between primary healthcare and psychiatry. CONCLUSION: The work models correspond differently to the coordinator's assignments of supporting patients and collaborating with healthcare and other stakeholders. The differences lie in how much they actively select patients, how much they collaborate, and with whom. Their different distribution across clinical contexts indicates that organisational demands influence how work models evolve in practice.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Don't Mind the Hypocrisy: a Commentary on Differentiated Treatment in Refugee Reception2023Ingår i: Socialinė teorija, empirija, politika ir praktika, ISSN 1648-2425, Vol. 26, s. 8-15Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The current conflict in Ukraine has forcibly displaced a large number of people and has put migration issues at the center of attention once again. A small, but growing, body of literature has revealed that Ukrainian refugees are being treated differently vis-à-vis other refugee groups – this is a clear concern for the social work profession, which is supposed to safeguard all minorities’ rights equally. In this commentary, I briefly review and focus on one aspect of why Ukrainian refugees are seemingly being treated ‘better’ – culture. Cultural proximity has been argued to be a major factor in how the Western response to the current conflict has been shaped, where Ukrainians, but not other refugee groups, are conceived of as culturally compatible with Western countries. The commentary conceptualizes this treatment within the framework of ‘promising victimhood’ and suggests that further research should focus on how victimhood is constructed within the social work profession in relation to the current crisis.

    Energy management Experiences of young autistic adults in work, leisure activities and relationships2023Ingår i: Alter;European Journal of Disability Research ;Journal Europeen de Recherche Sur le Handicap, ISSN 1875-0672, E-ISSN 1875-0680, Vol. 17, nr 3, s. 25-38Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores young autistic adults' energy management in relation to work, leisure activities and social relationships. Energy management strategies serve as different ways for the young autistic adults to sustain their energy balance by trying to understand what increases or reduces their energy levels. In this way, energy can be understood as modes of autistic functionality where the informants' individual energy levels, the contexts in which they find themselves and the strategies they use to influence and form central parts of their everyday lives.

    Enhancing diversity climates in human services organizations2023Ingår i: Journal of Ethnic & Cultural Diversity in Social Work, ISSN 1531-3204, E-ISSN 1531-3212, Vol. 32, nr 5, s. 247-260Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The article examines the ongoing paradigm shift on enhancing diversity climates in Swedish human services organizations. Traditional social policy arrangements based on a monocultural style of service provision has been challenged by the growing need for cultural competence and ethnic sensitivity. A study of cultural competence enhancement finds the recruitment of ethnic social workers to be the most efficient strategy for making social services more culturally sensitive. At both the operational and the managerial level, ethnic staff contribute to regular training and the updating of staff cultural competences, as well as to the strategic diversity plans of entire organizations.

    Exploring the Sharing and Legitimacy of Experience-Based Knowledge of Living with Acquired Brain Injury in Two Practice Communities2023Ingår i: Health & Social Care in the Community, ISSN 0966-0410, E-ISSN 1365-2524, Vol. 2023, artikel-id 6677161Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Background. Involving people with acquired brain injury in service development has the potential to improve service and give experience-based knowledge legitimacy. The objective of this study was to explore experiences of sharing experience-based knowledge of living with acquired brain injury with others, with a particular focus on the conditions for sharing and learning, and the legitimacy of experience-based knowledge. Materials and Methods. Using a single case study design, the processes in two groups that were part of a Swedish supportive network for people with acquired brain injury were explored. One group consisted mainly of people with acquired brain injury who authored a blog and the other group consisted of healthcare staff who produced educational material with the involvement of a person with own experience of acquired brain injury. The data consisted of forty-one collective blogs, fifteen semistructured individual interviews, and ten observations from meetings. The data were analysed by utilizing the community of practice framework and the concepts of legitimate peripheral participation and epistemic injustice. Results. The findings showed that both groups developed learning processes with a focus on everyday rehabilitation as a joint enterprise. Mutual engagement developed from doing activities together and legitimacy in the groups came from engagement in these activities. In the education group, the ambition to involve people with own experience of acquired brain injury was never realized in practice. Hence, experience-based knowledge of living with acquired brain injury never got legitimacy in the group. Conclusions. We conclude that integrating experience-based knowledge from people with own experience of acquired brain injury demands careful and deliberate planning with specific consideration to existing power asymmetries between healthcare professionals and people with own experience. Mitigating epistemic injustice and gaining legitimacy for such knowledge require that people with experience of living with acquired brain injury are recognized as knowledge producers.

    Failures in the Child Perspective: Social Workers’ Experiences of Losing Focus of the Child2023Ingår i: The International Journal of Children's Rights, ISSN 0927-5568, E-ISSN 1571-8182, Vol. 31, nr 2, s. 352-377Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    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.

    Financialized accumulation, neoliberal hegemony, and the transformation of the Swedish Welfare Model, 1980–20202023Ingår i: Capital and Class, ISSN 0309-8168, E-ISSN 2041-0980, Vol. 47, nr 4, s. 565-591Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing on a Gramscian Regulation Approach and Harvey’s accumulation by dispossession thesis, this article discusses the structural and hegemonic mechanisms of the neoliberal transformation of Sweden’s welfare sectors. Providing new longitudinal data on welfare retrenchment, corporate governance, wealth shares, and private economic power, the article further analyzes how the transformation of the Swedish post-war universal welfare model is related to class struggle and accumulation regime change in the Swedish economy. Following a decade-long countermobilization of Swedish capital and a severe economic crisis in the early 1990s, neoliberal economic common sense was cemented among social democratic policy elites that manifested itself in an institutionalized austerity polity, leading to a slow but steady dismantling of the Swedish welfare project. Roughly a fifth of employees in the three largest welfare sectors work in private welfare companies that generate tax-financed profits on politically created welfare markets. Welfare profits are in turn defended by a welfare–industrial complex and undergirded by a hegemonic bloc consisting of capital elites and sympathetic policymakers. In the virtual absence of vocal antihegemonic forces, many social democratic leaders have limited criticism against welfare profits throughout the last decades. On the contrary, austerity measures practiced by Swedish social democrats have thereto led to deteriorating social cohesion and spawned distrust among core social democratic voters.

    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.

    Abstract [en]

    In 2016–2017, a large Swedish hospital introduced a mobile team of asylum social workers to work with asylum-seeking and undocumented patients. Based on interviews with the asylum social workers and the theoretical concepts of jurisdiction and professional discretion, this study explores how they experienced their work and developed their specialist competence and strategies for health social work with migrants. The findings show that they not only relieved staff and supported patients and relatives but also systemised the knowledge about health social work with migrants and created a professional specialty with a socially, rather than medically, defined group of patients.

    Intensity and Variable Attention: Counter Narrating ADHD, from ADHD Deficits to ADHD Difference2023Ingår i: British Journal of Social Work, ISSN 0045-3102, E-ISSN 1468-263X, Vol. 53, nr 8, s. 3647-3664Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Literature on attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has historically come from a cognitive deficit approach and lacked community authorship. In contrast, this article utilises a neurodiversity framework to explore ADHD as a cognitive difference through ADHDers’ experiences. Specifically, here we analyse collective autoethnographic writings from neurodivergent academic researchers writing to one other about their experiences of intensity and variable attention or interest-based attention. Through the process of collective writing, we started to rename and restory our experiences, which has enabled us to understand intensity and variable attention as a valuable facet of human diversity, with both strengths and challenges. This project offers an example of how community-based research can elucidate individual experiences as ADHD/AuDHD researchers, facilitate exploration of varied experiences with intensity and attention and increase self-awareness and ability to give and receive neuroaffirmative support.

    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.

    Kris i bostadsfrågan: för en solidarisk bostadspolitik2023Bok (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Under de senaste decennierna har fastighetsägare, byggbolag, banker och riskkapitalister tjänat enorma summor på bostäder, medan andra förlorat sina hem eller sett sina bostads­kostnader öka kraftigt. Den sociala bostadspolitiken har övergivits, hemlösheten har ökat och bostadsstandarden har försämrats. Samtidigt har det finansiella systemet blivit centrerat kring en bolånespiral som har gjort hushållen och den svenska ekonomin otroligt sårbara.

    Sverige behöver ett nytt, socialt och klimatanpassat bostads­system, men ett sådant kan bara åstadkommas genom radikala förändringar. Utifrån en gedigen genomgång av över hundra års svensk bostadshistoria analyserar "Kris i bostadsfrågan" orsakerna till och konsekvenserna av att bostadens bruksvärde helt har kommit att överskuggas av dess bytesvärde, och föreslår hur den pågående krisen – med radikala förändringar i politik, finans och byggande – skulle kunna demonteras och utgöra grunden för ett nytt bostadssystem, där alla människors behov av ett hem står i centrum.

    Legal Geographies of Displacement through Renovation: Legal Interpretative Practices in Sweden2023Ingår i: Antipode, ISSN 0066-4812, E-ISSN 1467-8330, Vol. 55, nr 6, s. 1877-1897Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    How the legal is implicated in the production of space and how displacement is both a material and discursive process stands at the fore of this study. The aim is to examine how the law is interpreted in cases of approval of renovation of rental housing and how these interpretations are articulated, presented, and justified in the Swedish context. Questions on what definitions and justifications are used in the interpretative legal practice are linked to processes of discursive displacement of tenants. It is argued that the unequal relationship between property owners and tenants is sustained in this legal practice through the techniques of abstracting, naturalising, and shifting responsibility, and uncritically reproducing financial logics, thus contributing to discursive displacement of tenants. The arguments of tenants are silenced and circumscribed with economic and technical reasons, along with narrow and vague definitions, reflecting a position of privilege, and reproducing the politics of property.

    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.

    The paper explores how disabled girls with Personal Assistants (PA:s) in a Swedish context constitute themselves as subjects in relation to intersecting meanings of age, gender, space, time and disability. The results illuminate the importance of social spaces and social relationships for the girls’ forming their sense of selves. Similar to ablebodied girls, disabled girls’ transition into adulthood can be viewed as a yoyo-transitions, entering and exiting different adult positions several times. Unlike ablebodied girls, they enter adult positions not commonly associated with youths, such as work leadership positions in relation to adult employees, such as the adult PA. This implies that they to some extent manage their own process of becoming an adult. Our findings stress the importance of recognition and awareness of disabled girls transition to adulthood as different not pathological to nondisabled girls’, where consideration is taken both to individual needs and preferences of female assistance users.

    • All girls need to develop their sense of themselves to become women
    • Disabled girls with personal assistants find it difficult to live ordinary lives as girls without the support of external personal assistants
    • With the help of personal assistants disabled girls can participate in the places and with the people they choose themselves
    • The relationship with the personal assistant put demands on the disabled girl to become a woman faster than abledbodied girls, in the same time it can hinder the girl’s development into a woman
    • It is important for practioners and policymakers to recognize the dual role of personal assistants in disabled girls lives

    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.

    Meeting up in broken word/times: communication, temporality and pace in neuromixed writing2023Ingår i: Medical Humanities, ISSN 1468-215X, E-ISSN 1473-4265, Vol. 49, nr 3, s. 407-415Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The article investigates letter writing as a way to explore neurodiverse collectives, neuromixed communication and neurodiverse research collaboration. From the perspective of neurodiversity studies and translation practice/studies, the article negotiates new perspectives of inherited images of neurological selves and others, such as the non-autistic as the 'typical' in contrast to the 'atypical' autistic person. Experimenting with autistic time, allowing different sensory modalities and different approaches to time, detail and narrative, the article challenges deficit approaches to autism. Through a letter writing practice the possibilities and challenges of subjectivity, cultural translation and writing as method are examined. The article suggests that 'counter narratives' are important sources of knowledge as they reclaim personhood from dehumanising perspectives. By performing neuromixed conversation and dialogue with theoretical concepts, and pen paling as play as a fruitful form for responsible cross-neurotype translation, the article illuminates challenges and opportunities in neurodiverse collective writing.

    Naming ourselves, becoming neurodivergent scholars2023Ingår i: Disability & Society, ISSN 0968-7599, E-ISSN 1360-0508Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we seek to restory what has been storied as “the problem of ADHD”. Informed by calls for a critical ADHD studies, we explore the possibilities of ADHD collective autoethnographic storytelling. Together we (en)counter narratives of ADHD. Within our collective writing space, from our ADHD/AuDHD bodyminds, we seek to re-story our ADHD/AuDHD. We map a field of critical ADHD research within social sciences and point out problems of outsider perspectives, stressing a need for insider perspectives. Our data consist of collective authoethnographic writings about ADHD. From the data we have explored our experiences of (En)Countering ADHD narratives, and a transition process which we refer to as from ”broken NT-scholars” to neurodivergent scholars, stressing the importance of ADHD:ers as independent as well as collective agents, and ADHD as epistemological standpoint within research.

    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.

    Physicians’ experience of and collaboration with return-to-work coordinators in healthcare: a cross-sectional study in Sweden2023Ingår i: Disability and Rehabilitation, ISSN 0963-8288, E-ISSN 1464-5165Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: Return-to-work coordinators (RTWCs) give people on sick leave individualized support and coordinate between different stakeholders, including physicians.  The aim of this study was to explore physicians’ experience of RTWCs and investigate factors that influence how much physicians collaborate with RTWCs, or refer patients to them, in primary, orthopaedic, and psychiatric care clinics.

    Materials and methods: Of the 1229 physicians responding to a questionnaire, 629 physicians who had access to a RTWC in their clinic answered to questions about collaborating with RTWCs.

    Results: Among physicians who had access to a RTWC, 29.0% collaborated with a RTWC at least once a week. Physicians with a more favourable experience of RtWcs reported more frequent collaboration (adjusted OR 2.92, 95% CI 2.06–4.15). Physicians also collaborated more often with RTWCs if they reported to often deal with problematic sick-leave cases, patients with multiple diagnoses affecting work ability, and conflicts with patients over sickness certification.

    Conclusions: Physicians who had more problematic sick-leave cases to handle and a favourable experience of RTWCs, also reported collaborating more often with RTWCs. The results indicate that RTWCs’ facilitation of contacts with RtW stakeholders and improvements in the sickness certification process may be of importance for physicians.

    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.

    Safety, Shame, and Ambiguity — the Case of Ukrainian Male Refugees2023Ingår i: The international migration review, ISSN 0197-9183, E-ISSN 1747-7379Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Forced migration from Ukraine is characterized by its distinctive demographic character: women, children, and the elderly. This distinctiveness is due to the sex-selective military recruiting law forcing Ukrainian men to stay in the country. Despite this law, anecdotal reports about Ukrainian men fleeing into neighboring countries have surfaced. As such, Ukrainian male refugees are a salient minority. In this article, I reflect on how this salient minority status affects Ukrainian male refugees. The sex-selective military recruiting law sends a potential message: Ukrainian men are not only legally supposed to stay in Ukraine, but strong normative forces are also at play. In short, stigma and shame are potential feelings that penetrate these men's day-to-day lives. I suggest that researchers approach the subject matter using two theoretical streams: (a) a gendered lens and (b) a theoretical framework of “promising victimhood” with notions of “undeserving” versus “deserving” refugees. I encourage researchers to do so while considering the sensitive situation in which Ukrainian male refugees find themselves.

    Abstract [en]

    Participatory research designs are often used to improve the opportunities of marginalized groups to participate in knowledge production. This article is based on experiences from a research project, where participatory design was used to develop and implement user participation for children and young people in out-of-home care. The aim is to discuss opportunities and challenges within different stages of this research project to problematize which participation in participation research involves. Special emphasis is placed on the power relations between researchers, professionals and users through the different stages of the research process – from research design and co-creation to the implementation of co-created knowledge – and to explore how the opportunity maintaining epistemic justice varies among participants throughout this process. This article shows that the conditions for maintaining justice and epistemic justice change when the participatory research process goes from knowledge production to implementation of co-created knowledge. The implementation of knowledge takes place in a context of complex and competing interests, where the responsibility and power of researchers are weakened in favor of the responsibility and power of professionals. At this stage, users' opportunities for power and responsibility is also weakened. This shift of responsibility and power has ethical implications, which users at this stage may feel let down about their expectations of change that were raised in the past stages of the process, are not met in practice.
