    Unemployment and conditional welfare: Exclusion and belonging in immigrant women's discourse on being long-term dependent on social assistance2016In: International Journal of Social Welfare, ISSN 1369-6866, E-ISSN 1468-2397, Vol. 25, no 1, p. 18-26Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Long-term unemployment with dependency on social assistance in Sweden has increased and is particularly high among foreign-born persons. The present study explored immigrant recipients' experiences of being welfare reliant. Swedish-Iraqi women's construction of exclusion and belonging in relation to policies and welfare regulations was scrutinised. The women referred to unemployment with frustration, expressing that it renders dependence on social welfare and enforces adherence to the stipulations of the social services. The individual's mobility and agency are restricted and concerted efforts to obtain employment are futile, which increase the sense of exclusion. However, the entitlement to social assistance also engenders feelings of belonging, of being connected to and cared for by the new country. More research is needed to examine the role that social assistance regulations play in forming feelings of belonging and exclusion. It appears essential that political initiatives be taken to reverse the trend of high unemployment among foreign-born persons.

    Where is the child? A discursive exploration of the positioning of children in research on mental-health-promoting interventions2015In: Sociology of Health and Illness, ISSN 0141-9889, E-ISSN 1467-9566, Vol. 37, no 2, p. 184-197Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The present study explores the discursive positioning of children in research articles on mental–health-promoting interventions. The questions under investigation are: are children positioned as active or passive agents, are children’s health and wellbeing contextualised, and if so how? How is the child perceived; that is, how are age, gender, socioeconomic status, family structure, dis/ability, and so on accounted for? We found that the positioning of the child as passive and formed by adults prevails; health is largely individualised and decontextualised in that it is depicted as being contingent on the person’s own capabilities. However, there are instances in which children are positioned as active subjects, their opinions are in focus, and their health and wellbeing are connected to social relations and context. We propose a more active discussion about how children and wellbeing are conceptualised in the outlining, implementation and research of public health interventions. Moreover, children – just like adults – should be increasingly regarded as service users who are entitled to have a say in matters that concern them.

    Advancing home-school relations through parent support?2015In: Ethnography and Education, ISSN 1745-7823, E-ISSN 1745-7831, Vol. 10, no 2, p. 170-184Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The present study explores a local initiative to develop parent support services through the school system. In focus are the discourse on home–school relations and parent support and the interplay between discourse and practical occurrences. Official documents, interviews and notes from municipal meetings and informal conversations were obtained from a local authority during 2009–2013. The results show that the education system is discursively positioned as an important player for the administration and organisation of parent support. All the same, opposing arguments are given precedence in decisions concerning what home–school relations should entail. The study explicates that parent support, when connected to compulsory education, is preferably conceptualised as part of and contingent on the forms and characteristics of home–school relations. Furthermore, it makes evident that the term school is recurrently used as a synonym of teachers. This has implications for both home– school relations and parent support.

    Att (sam)verka för barns hälsa och lärande i mötet mellan socialtjänst och skola: en forskningsöversikt2014Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The present report focuses on interorganizational co-operation between the social services and schools. It contains a literature review of the Swedish research and national guidelines from 2000 onwards, as well as a brief theoretical discussion on different forms of co-operation. The thematic categorization of previous research resulted in such recurrently raised topics as the following: Assignment of responsibilities and tasks; Information, consultation, and meetings; Interprofessional teams; Service user perspectives and the importance of relations; Knowledge about co-operation and research-based practice. The review concludes that the responsibilities assigned to different actors are diffuse. At times, schools are given too great a responsibility for individual child evaluations and care, and their main task of providing education is disregarded by, for instance, the social services. Schools, on the other hand, ask for more support from child psychiatry clinics and the social services. Blaming others for failing services and/or assigning others responsibilities they do not have a mandate, funding or the competences for may be the result of limited resources and/or lack of knowledge about and respect for other partners in the co-operation. Sharing information is frequently brought up as an important aspect of collaborative work, as are consulting one another with regard to evaluations and interventions. Constructive interprofessional meetings require trust, commitment, competence, clearly defined goals, and relational continuity. This also applies to interprofessional teamwork. The opinions and experiences of service users need more acknowledgment, in practice and in the research. The benefits of co-operation for children and families are uncertain, and must be further explored. Co-operative activities should be initiated only if they will undoubtedly result in better services for the individual child. There is a lack of studies focusing on co-operation from the perspective of the social services. Furthermore, the discussions in the guidelines as well as in the research would have benefited from more elaborated theoretical reasoning on how different forms of co-operation influence work to promote children’s health and learning. Finally, the present report calls for a critical discussion on how the concept of co-operation is applied.

    Föräldrastöd genom skolan: Diskursiva tillämpningar av nationell politik inom en svensk kommun2015In: Nordic Studies in Education, ISSN 1891-5914, E-ISSN 1891-5949, Vol. 35, no 1, p. 70-83Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The present paper conducts a conceptual analysis of how parent support is recontextualised when connected to the education system in a Swedish local authority. Official documents and interviews with officials are analyzed. The study shows that in the discourse on parent support, supporting activities are commonly connected to the teachers, and consequently the teachers are made responsible for the provision of support. The student health services or other professionals such as leisure time personnel are less prominent in the discourse. The paper asks for reflection on the part of compulsory schooling in health promoting and risk preventing work.

    Love and family: Discussions between swedish men and women concerning the transition to parenthood2007In: Forum qualitative Sozialforschung, E-ISSN 1438-5627, Vol. 8, no 1, p. Art. 23-Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study is an exploration of how young Swedish adults talk about intimate relationships and the transition to parenthood. It is suggested that people carefully reflect over their relationship with their partner before deciding to embark on parenthood, and it is shown that reproductive decision making is imbued with contradictory ideals that may cause stress and anxiety. To have and to raise a child in a nuclear family arrangement is one prominent ideal that is illuminated by this study, but parallel with this is the notion of intimate relationships breaking down, dwindling. These two discourses are contradictory and create dilemmas in the process of family formation. Some individuals find the risk of relationship dissolution especially stressful, drawing on their own childhood experiences of growing up with separated parents. This is a study based on focus group interviews containing men and women, ranging from 24 to 39 years old, with different educational, occupational and geographical backgrounds, some are parents and some are not. The data are analysed using a discourse analytical approach, and much of the discussion is based on Anthony GIDDENS', Zygmunt BAUMAN's and Ulrich BECK and Elisabeth BECK-GERNSHEIM's reasoning about love and intimacy in the contemporary Western world. © 2006 FQS.

    Natur, utomhusmiljö och den goda barndomen i tidningen Förskolan2009In: Naturen som symbol för den goda barndomen / [ed] Gunilla Halldén, Stockholm: Carlssons , 2009, 1, p. 59-77Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Barndomen och naturen ses ofta som sammankopplade med varandra. Naturen uppfattas som god för barn och barn anses må bra av att vara i naturen. Men hur har egentligen  denna tankefigur uppstått och vad hänger samman med den i det pedagogiska arbetet med barn. Här diskuterar en rad framstående forskare hur barn och natur förhåller sig till varandra, alltifrån Rousseau. Vilka filosofiska ingångar finns i relationen människa/natur, hur förhåller sig natur och kultur till varandra, hur visualiseras naturen i t ex skolfilmer. Vidare granskas natur och barndom i förskolans utbildningsmaterial, liksom natur och genus. Och vilken plats har naturen i barndomsminnen.Bokens skribenter kommer från olika forskningsfält. Gunilla Halldén är professor på tema Barn vid Linköpings universitet.  Hennes forskning har rört föräldrars vardagspsykologi, barns föreställningar om familj samt barndomsbegreppets förändring under 1900-talet. Tidigare utgivning bl a Barnet och boet (2001) och Den moderna barndomen (2007).

    Timing parenthood: Independence, family and ideals of life2008Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The present thesis is a qualitative study of reproductive decision-making. It explores ways in which Swedish young adults talk about the timing of parenthood, the ideal life, good parenthood and the auspicious childhood. The work contributes to the debate on why fertility rates are declining and why the transition to parenthood is being postponed in the contemporary Western world.

    The empirical analysis is based on focus group data including in total 35 participants, between 24 and 39 years of age, with varying educational, occupational, and geographical backgrounds. The participants were new first-time parents, a few who were expecting their first child and some who were childless. The broad guiding questions of the focus group discussions were the timing of parenthood, the general postponement of parenthood, and the childless life contra life as a parent.

    The focus group method proved to be very useful in exploring ideas and ideals related to the timing of parenthood, as did the discourse analytical approach that was applied. The study illuminates the complexity of reproductive decision-making; it is an exploration of a range of notions and discourses that impact on people’s lives and ways of understanding the world, such as discourses on kin, family, friendship, the romantic relationship, parenthood, age, biology, and the independent, individualized individual. It is also a study of individual positioning towards different, often contradictory ideals, and individual strategies when trying to solve the pertinent dilemmas caused by contrasting notions. Thus, the study is an exploration of general, cultural discursive structures as well as of the different ways in which the subject actively draws upon them.

    Investigating Technology Acceptance towards E-commerce within the Work Wear Sector: A study within business-to-business about business clients’ technology acceptance towards e-commerce2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this thesis is to study business clients’ technology acceptance of e-commerce within business-to-business in the work wear sector. In specific, develop and test a framework in order to analyze the antecedents of perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use behind business clients’ behavioral intention to the usage of e-commerce.

    Problem: There is not sufficient research regarding industries and companies that are categorized as laggards (Del Aguila-Obra & Padilla-Melendez, 2006), and furthermore regarding clients’ technology acceptance in a business-to-business context (Doherty & Ellis-Chadwick, 2010). Actors within the work wear sector conduct their businesses in the most traditional way, with physical stores (Ekberg, Fraenkel, Gustavsson, Hamsten & Hedin, 2014). The question is whether this traditional way remain due to skepticism among the business clients’ and their level of technology acceptance.

    Method: A proposed framework is developed by the authors, adapted from Technology Acceptance Model (Venkatesh & Davis, 2000) and Diffusion of Innovation Theory (Rogers, 1983). This framework is tested through quantitative research, and more specific a questionnaire. Subsequently, the empirical data gathering is assembled, analyzed and concluded into a final proposed framework. 

    Findings: The final proposed framework incorporates antecedents from the proposed framework, but also new influences that are identified in the empirical findings as relevant. These influences are Age, Gender, Experience and Compliance. Further, the antecedents presented in the final proposed framework are the following: Subjective norm/Opinion leaders, Job relevance/Compatibility, Output quality, Result demonstrability/Observability and Trialability.

    On the Context of Elderly Persons' Occupational Performance2003In: Physical & Occupational Therapy in Geriatrics, ISSN 0270-3181, E-ISSN 1541-3152, Vol. 21, no 3, p. 49-59Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to describe the context of elderly persons’ occupational performance in order to expose factors affecting their opportunities to age successfully. The study design is a descriptive pilot study and consists of interviews, based on a standardized questionnaire, with thirteen elderly people in their home settings. The results show that the informants’ occupational performance problems are mostly related to their occupational function and physical environment. The informants seem to be satisfied with their life as elderly individuals, but with adequate support, aiming to increase their occupational performance, their wellbeing may increase to benefit both themselves and the society in which they live.

    Living with head and neck cancer: a profile of captivity2010In: Journal of Nursing and Healthcare of Chronic Illness, ISSN 1752-9816, E-ISSN 1752-9824, Vol. 2, no 1, p. 22-31Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim. To illuminate what it means to live with head and neck cancer.

    Background. Patients could experience head and neck cancer as more emotionally traumatic than other cancers because of visible disfigurement and its life-threatening impact on vital functions. This long-term illness often leads to lifestyle changes such as to physical function, work and everyday tasks, interpersonal relationships and social functioning.

    Design. This study used a qualitative and explorative longitudinal and prospective design with semi-structured interviews and open-ended questions. Twenty-one interviews were conducted with six participants with newly diagnosed or newly recurrent head and neck cancer. The analysis was descriptive and interpretive.

    Findings. The participants were living 'in captivity' in the sense that their symptoms were constant reminders of the disease. Our findings also revealed existential loneliness and spiritual growth, as interpreted within six themes: altered sense of affiliation; hostage of health care; locked up in a broken body, but with a free spirit; confined in a rogue body, forced dependency on others, and caught up in a permanent illness trajectory.

    Conclusions. Living with head and neck cancer involves emotional and existential vulnerability. The participants and their next of kin experienced insufficient support from health services and inadequate coordination between phases of their lengthy illness trajectory. These findings call for changes in oncological rehabilitation and management. Patient care must take a holistic view of everyone involved, centring on the individual and the promotion of health. A care coordinator could navigate between the individual patient needs and appropriate health services, hopefully with results that lessen the individual's emotional and existential confinement.

    Perspectives of Key Stakeholders on Employment of Autistic Adults across the United States, Australia and Sweden2019In: Autism Research, ISSN 1939-3792, E-ISSN 1939-3806, p. 1-15Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite efforts to improve employment outcomes for autistic individuals, internationally their employment rates remain low. There is a need to better understand the factors influencing successful employment for autistic adults in the labor market from the perspectives of multiple keystakeholders. This study represents the second in a series of papers conducted as part of an International Society for Autism Research policy brief aimed at improving employment outcomes for autistic individuals. A community consultation methodology using focus groups, forums, and interviews was applied with autistic individuals (n = 19), family members (n = 18), service providers (n = 21), employers (n = 11), researchers (n = 5), and advocacy group representatives (n = 5) in Australia, Sweden, and the United States, aiming to identify the factors perceived to determine gaining and maintaining employment for autistic individuals. Directed content analysis, guided by the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF), was conducted to investigate the key factors influencing employment outcomes for autistic individuals. Meaningful verbal concepts, or units of text with common themes, were also derived from the qualitative data and then linked and compared to the ICF Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Core-sets. Across countries, activity and participation and environmental factor categories of the ICF were the most associated with employment outcomes. Results suggest that removal of environmental barriers and enhancing environmental facilitators may assist to remediate ASD-related difficulties in the workplace.

    LAY SUMMARY: This study sought to understand the perspectives of autistic individuals and key stakeholders on factors influencing if autistic adults get and keep jobs. Across Australia, Sweden, and the UnitedStates, focus groups and interviews were conducted to understand international perspectives on what helps and hinders getting and keeping a job for autistic individuals. The environment, including supports, relationships, attitudes, and services, were perceived to be the most important for workplace success. Intervention targeting barriers and facilitators in the workplace environment may support autistic adults to be successful in the labor market.

    Frivilligt socialt arbete i svenska muslimska församlingar: Tradition, organisation, integration.2011In: Socionomens forskningssupplement, ISSN 0283–1929, Vol. 29, no 1, p. 34-43Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Svenska muslimska församlingar är inte bara religiösa mötesplatser utan också centra för organiseringen av sociala välfärdsinsatser. I denna studie ges, för första gången i Västeuropa, en riksrepresentativ bild av muslimska församlingars frivilliga sociala arbete men också en analys av den roll sådana insatser spelar ur ett integrationsperspektiv. Bidrar muslimskt socialt arbete till att skapa inåtriktade parallellsamhällen eller bidrar det, tvärtom, till att skapa nya band till det omgivande samhället?

    Hidden Voluntary Social Work: A Nationally Representative Survey of Muslim Congregations in Sweden2011In: British Journal of Social Work, ISSN 0045-3102, E-ISSN 1468-263X, Vol. 41, no 5, p. 968-979Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study is based on a nationwide survey of local Muslim congregations (n  =  105) and focuses on the patterns and function of voluntary social work carried out by the congregations. Muslim congregations in Sweden are not only religious meeting places, but also social meeting places and centres for the organisation of a broad range of social welfare services: outreach activities, support to newly arrived immigrants and activities for children and young people. The work is carried out on a voluntary basis at the intersection between the congregation and the community. Muslim voluntary social work appears to be most intensive in smaller municipalities with a large amount of unemployment. The dominant discourse on Islam in Europe has claimed that Muslim social work is part of an attempt to create self-sufficient enclaves that impede the integration of Muslim immigrants into the wider society. Claims of this type seem, however, to be largely unfounded. The Swedish Muslim congregations that carry out the most voluntary social work are those most interested in co-operation with other organisations and with authorities of different types and those that have the most positive experiences of the wider society.

    Abstract [sv]

    Muslimska församlingars riksomfattande etablering i Sverige är en viktig förändring inom den ideella sektorn. Men hur förhåller sig församlingarna till den svenska traditionen av samverkan mellan ideella och offentliga aktörer? I artikeln studeras hur och i vilken omfattning muslimska församlingar samverkar med offentliga aktörer och vilka organisationsinterna och organisationsexterna faktorer som gynnar respektive missgynnar samverkan.

    "Vi ska inte spela Svarte Petter med återvändande terrorister": En kvalitativ studie om Sveriges rättsliga såväl som samhälleliga kapacitet i hanteringen av IS-återvändare2019Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Individuals who have travelled from Sweden and affiliated to the Islamic State in Syria will, after the fall of the caliphate, return home to Sweden. The concept of ISIS returnees has begun to dominate the debate and there is a common concern that individuals who possess radicalized opinions should return to Sweden only to commit terrorist crimes. The study is based on a qualitative research method, specifically an interview methodology with semi-structured interviews. The study identifies the capacity Sweden possesses, according to experts, both socially and legally, to deal with the problems of Swedish citizens who wants to return from ISIS-controlled areas. The study also aims to examines measures that is the most suitable to apply to returnees from the expert’s perspective. An analysis based on the Transitional Justice framework identified the importance of applying both legal aspects, as well as social processes in order to handle the problems with returnees. Through a review of previous research, three courts were identified, because they previously had the ability to prosecute individuals who committed criminal acts, these are: The Ad-hoc Tribunal, the Hybrid Court and the International Criminal Court. It was therefore considered important to examine these in order to review whether the courts were a legal alternative in the discussion of returnees who committed terrorist crimes. All actors, both international and national, have lack of capacity and efficiency regarding how to handle the ISIS-returnees. The study therefore contributes to an understanding of the capacity Sweden possesses in order to handle the problem of individuals who are now returning from ISIS, and also proposes new ways to handle the problematic aspects about ISIS-returnees to Sweden.

    Plussummespela hela vägen till hållbar utveckling – En studie om ”Europas grönaste stad”: Hur Internationella samarbeten driver hållbar utveckling framåt i staden. 2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The environmental threat is a stressing concern which must be addressed immediately. The urbanization has been growing in a rapid pace the past years. Today, more than 50 percent of the world’s population lives in cities, and the forecast tells us that it will increase to 70 percent in 2050. This puts pressure on actors like states, organizations, companies, and municipalities who must work to meet the urbanization immediately. The UN, the EU and WWF amongst others advocates that international cooperation between these actors is the best way to go, and that cities must be prepared for the problem that occurs today and the challenges for tomorrow. In spite of this, there is no substantial research on this topic, on what international environmental cooperation between cities could mean to a city or what the results could be. Växjö is one of few Swedish cities who work internationally with local as well as global ecological sustainable development. This study intends to discover the international cooperations in the topic of environmental sustainable development in the city in Växjö. The purpose is to see what impact the international cooperations have in the environmental work of Växjö, and to see whether environmental sustainable development is being urged on by international collaborations. By using a positive–sum game as a theoretical starting point, a case–study has been conducted, where interviews were made with representatives from Växjö municipal. The result of the study shows that the effects Växjö has obtained through these cooperations, do promote environmental sustainable development. If the collaborations take the form of a positive–sum game, all actors benefit from it and the environment as well. Since the international cooperations bring exchange of knowledge and sometimes external financial means to put into different projects, the city’s environmental sustainable development improves.

    Motivation- en framgångsfaktor i ämnet samhällskunskap: Hur motiveras elever till att utveckla kunskap inom ämnet samhällskunskap?2019Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Samhällskunskap är ett betydelsefullt ämne för vårt samhälle idag och för vår fortsatta samhällsutveckling. Ifall de elever som undervisas i ämnet inte blir motiverade kan det leda till negativa konsekvenser för samhällsutvecklingen. Syftet med litteraturstudien är att undersöka vad forskning belyser som betydelsefullt för elevers motivation i samhällskunskap. Studien har sin utgångspunkt i ett svenskt skolperspektiv i skolåren 4–6. Resultatet av litteraturstudien visar, efter att noga analyserat de texter som ligger till grund för textanalysen, att det finns flertalet element med positiv effekt på elevers motivation i samhällskunskap för elever i årskurserna 4–6 i den svenska grundskolan. Det har även framkommit vilka negativa faktorer det finns och vad som kan göra att eleverna blir omotiverade i samhällskunskap. Litteraturstudien har sin grund i två motivationsteorier, den sociokulturella samt den behavioristiska, där den sociokulturella har sin kärna i att motivation framkommer genom lärande med andra medan den behavioristiska teoribildningen, till stor del handlar om att elever blir motiverade av belöningar och bestraffningar. Studien bygger på en teoretisk kvalitativ textanalys, med ett metaetnografiskt perspektiv och ett hermeneutiskt perspektiv som utgångspunkt tillsammans med redskapet färgkodning.

    Personlighetsfaktorer i rekryteringsprocessen: En explorativ studie av sambandet mellan anställningsannonser och anställningsurval2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Följande examensarbete på kandidatnivå utgår från problemformuleringar kring hur personliga egenskaper, relaterade till McCrae och Costas (2002) femfaktormodell, förekommer och används i rekryteringsprocesser. Två kvantitativa studier upprättades, där den första studien testade två hypoteser gällande personliga egenskapers förekomst i (N = 192) platsannonser utifrån en innehållsanalys som analyserades med frekvensanalys och Cramérs V. Den andra studien testade två hypoteser kring rekryteringsansvarigas personlighetsfaktorer och deras bedömning av lämplig kandidat genom en enkätundersökning med (N = 30) deltagande rekryterande chefer och HR-medarbetare. Enkätverktyget bestod av två delar, där första delen utgjordes av ett befintligt validerat test och del två konstruerades av författarna. Den andra studien har analyserats med Pearsons Korrelationskoefficient för att ta reda på samband mellan variablerna som mättes i enkäterna. Resultatet i studie ett visade att samvetsgrannhet var den personlighetsfaktor som förekom i majoriteten av platsannonserna. Resultatet i studie två visade att samvetsgrannhet kan ha viss betydelse vid bedömning av lämplig kandidat (r = 0,376, p < 0,05).

    Grön rehabilitering i praktiken: En kvalitativ studie av realiserandet och upplevelsen av en terapeutisk verksamhet i landstinget i Jönköpings län2014Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Den studie som redovisas i denna rapport har genomförts av forskare vid Hälsohögskolan i Jönköping på uppdrag av Landstinget i Jönköpings län. Rapporten utgör den kvalitativa delen av utvärderingen av projektverksamheten Grön rehab som landstinget på försök driver sedan årsskiftet 2012-2013. Studiens övergripande syfte var att studera hur grön rehabilitering realiseras i mötet mellan deltagare och natur, deltagare och personal, och mellan deltagarna, samt undersöka deltagarnas motiv och mål för sitt deltagande i Grön rehab, deras upplevelse av att delta och vilken betydelse de tillskriver att deltagandet har haft i deras rehabiliteringsprocess och för deras arbetsförmåga och hälsa.

    Verksamheter under namn som grön rehabilitering har växt fram ur teorier om sambanden mellan naturens egenskaper och dess betydelse för människans hälsa. Tre olika discipliner har lämnat viktigt bidrag till den vidare utvecklingen mot användning av natur och trädgård i behandlande sammanhang. Hit hör design- och landskapsteorier som formulerat vissa grundantaganden om den gröna miljöns utformning. Aktivitetsteorier, som utgår från att människan är en aktiv varelse med behov av aktivitet och rörelse, har bidragit med forskning om hur olika slags aktiviteter kan användas i terapeutiskt syfte. Slutligen har miljöpsykologin bidragit med kunskaper om hur och varför människan uppfattar gröna miljöer som lugnande och stress-lindrande.

    Grön rehab i Jönköpings län bedrivs som ett tidsbegränsat projekt med placering vid ett av landstingets naturbruksgymnasier. Det innebär att man delar på resurser som växthus och djurstallar. I projektet Grön rehab ingår arbetsterapeut (100 %), psykolog (50 %) samt trädgårdsmästare och djurinstruktör på 20 % vardera. De båda senare arbetar också på naturbruksgymnasiet där de har sin ordinarie anställning. Verksamheten är organiserad som en kurs där deltagarna kommer till Grön rehab tre timmar per dag, två dagar i veckan under tio veckor. Den övergripande organiseringen av Grön rehab innebar att Dag ett varje vecka hade fokus på gruppsamtalet och att dag två innehöll ett ”grönt” inslag. Som gröna aktiviteter räknades både sådana i trädgården/växthuset och sådana med djur. Grön rehab räknas som en behandlande insats och deltagarna kommer på läkarremiss från vårdcentraler och liknande.

    Den kvalitativa studien bygger på en serie individuella intervjuer med samtlig personal i projektet samt på individuella intervjuer med personer som deltagit i Grön rehab under hösten 2013. Totalt ingår 12 intervjuer med personal och 12 intervjuer med deltagare. Personalen intervjuades mellan två och fyra gånger per person under olika tidpunkter i två olika kurser. Deltagarna intervjuades mellan en och fyra månader efter kurstidens slut. Utöver intervjuer ingår i studien data från besök i de miljöer som ingår i Grön rehab. Dessa besök genomfördes utanför kurstid och med personal som guide. Som data räknas även projektbeskrivning och broschyren med rubriken ”Grön rehabilitering” som Landstinget i Jönköpings län har producerat och som distribueras via bland annat landstingets hemsida.

    Analysen av personalintervjuerna visar att skogspromenaden är den aktivitet som förekommer mest frekvent (i princip varje kursdag) och att gruppsamtalet av samtlig personal betraktas som den överordnade aktiviteten i Grön rehab. Gruppsamtalen förs primärt inne i ”Lillstugan” en gång varje vecka. De leds av psykolog och arbetsterapeut gemensamt. Genom att båda samtalsledarna medverkar i samtliga aktiviteter den kursdagen hände det att samtalet fortsatte eller flyttades till exempelvis skogen. Under skogspromenaderna eftersträvade personalen ett fokus på medveten närvaro (mindfulness). Påbjuden tystnad varvades med korta samtal och reflektioner omkring det som kunde erfaras med olika sinnen. Deltagarna uppmanades att känna på bark och mossa, notera lukten av regn, lyssna till vinden och att iaktta naturens växlingar över tid och i förhållande till olika väderlek, samt att gå långsamt. Andra ”gröna” aktiviteter som genomfördes i växthuset eller i trädgården, liksom aktiviteter med djur utgjorde en mindre del av verksamheten. Arrangemanget med en samtalsdag och en ”grön” dag per vecka, betyder att deltagarna var engagerade i trädgårdssysslor omkring en timme vid fem olika tillfällen, och att lika mycket tid lades på aktiviteter med djur. Deltagarna möttes för gruppsamtal vid totalt tio tillfällen. Dessa beskrevs oftast pågå i mer än en timme.

    Sammanfattningsvis framgår av studien att det behövs

    • en tydlig programförklaring med uttalat stöd i befintlig nationell och internationell forskning och med beskrivning av vad behandlingsinsatsen Grön rehab syftar till.

    • en diskussion om Grön rehab’s möjliga betydelse för olika målgrupper.

    • följeforskning kvantitativt och kvalitativt för att kunna bedöma värdet av behandlingsinsatsen Grön rehab på kort och lång sikt. Alternativt att under en två-årsperiod driva Grön rehab som ett forskningsprojekt.

    • handledning av erfaren trädgårdsterapeut som resurs i behandlings-verksamheten.

    • utvecklas en strategi för att hantera krockar med naturbruksgymnasiets verksamhet.

    PR-team som modell för samordnad rehabiliteringsutredning på vårdcentraler i Jönköpings län: Arbetsrapport2014Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Rapporten presenterar och diskuterar resultatet av en studie omkring en regionalt i Jönköpings län framtagen modell för rehabiliteringsutredning i primärvården – PR-team. Studien bygger på tre olika material och har genomförts som tre separata delstudier. Resultaten för delstudierna redovisas i rapporten var för sig.

    Den första delstudien bygger på material från ett register över samtliga patienter i primärvården i Jönköpings län som har en sjukskrivning som överstiger 28 dagar. Resultat från delstudien visar att en högre andel män genomgår PR-team vid privata vårdcentraler jämfört med kvinnor och att PR-teamutredningar vid offentliga vårdcentraler i en tredjedel av fallen genomfördes under de första 90 dagarna av sjukskrivningsperioden. Vidare noterades att psykisk ohälsa angavs oftare för kvinnor än för män samt att nästan dubbelt så många kvinnor som män avslutades mot arbete eller studier.

    Den andra delstudien bygger på observationer av genomförda möten i rehabiliteringsteamet där den sammanvägda bedömningen av rehabiliteringsutredningen diskuteras och dokument­eras. I delstudien ingår även intervjuer med mötesdeltagare i så kallade PR-teammöten. Resultatet visar att ett PR-teammöte utgörs av flera delar och att en relativt stor del av mötestiden handlar om hur dokumentationen ska ske och hur olika tolkningar ska göras för att kunna fylla i blanketten på ett korrekt sätt. Det märktes stor skillnad mellan teamen vilket sannolikt berodde på respektive teams vana att arbeta enligt modellen för PR-team samt möjligen en påverkan av att observeras och spelas in.

    Den tredje delstudien är en analys av dokumentationen från 177 rehabiliteringsutredningar. Analysen visar att dokumentationen utgör en textgenre som nästan helt saknar uttalade subjekt. Det gäller både patienten som texten handlar om och den/de personer som gör bedöm­ningen. I den tematiska analysen framstår smärtproblematik som den främsta anledningen till att en teamutredning genomförs. Tre fjärdedelar av utredningarna handlade om kvinnor. Lång sjukskrivningshistoria, låg utbildning och migrationshistoria framstod som särskilda sårbarhetsfaktorer där såväl att patientens framtidsbild som att teamets bedömning pekade mot ringa förutsättningar för återgång till arbete.

    Teacher and parents implemented interventions targeting symbolic play of preschool aged children with Autism spectrum disorder2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The estimated prevalence of Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in 2007 was approximately 6,5-6,6 per 1000 children. Symbolic play is, one of the diagnostic criteria in the cases of ASD. In preschool, symbolic play is predominant form of play. However, children with ASD show lower levels of symbolic play. It takes them more time to start with symbolic play and have problems in performance of it. Nevertheless, they might even never develop symbolic play skills. The need for interventions targeting symbolic play of children with ASD is increasing. Generally speaking, there appear to be very limited number of symbolic play interventions for children with ASD. Even if done, most have been performed in laboratory conditions. The interventions that have been undertaken to support symbolic play have taken form of being child centered, peer mediated or adult mediated, with emphasized role of caregivers as interventionists. The aim of this systematic literature review is to address parents and teachers implemented interventions targeting symbolic play of preschool aged children with ASD, with an emphasis on characteristics of these interventions and pretend play sequences. Findings reveal that interventions implemented by either parents or teachers in natural environment give positive outcomes in terms of symbolic play and its instances of preschool aged children with ASD. The review presented a limited number of studies dealing with this kind of interventions. Since all interventions show that symbolic play can be facilitated in this population, special attention should be payed to the methods used to improve symbolic play behaviours and defining and dividing symbolic play. More focus should be put on implementing interventions targeting symbolic play of children with ASD by caregivers, i.e. parents and teachers, in natural context. Inclusion of peers in these kinds of interventions emerges as possible and potentially successful as well.The estimated prevalence of Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in 2007 was approximately 6,5-6,6 per 1000 children.

    Educartion, Professionalization and Social representations: On the transformation of social knowledge2011 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This book presents a broad range of research related to how social knowledge is shared, transmitted and transformed in the context of education and professional formation. The chapters of this edited collection reflect different theoretical and empirical approaches to that form of common-sense knowledge called social representations, the theory of which was developed almost a half-century ago by Serge Moscovici. Scholars from various research institutions in Brazil, France and Sweden, spanning a wide variety of disciplines within the social sciences, have contributed chapters that are grouped into three main categories related to education, professionalization and transformation of knowledge. Part I covers theoretical approaches to understanding the transformation of social knowledge from the perspective of social representations. Part II analyzes the impact of the theory of social representations on the transformation of knowledge in the field of education and professional formation. Finally, Part III presents several empirical studies focused on the social and cultural frames that condition the transformation of knowledge. While the book is devoted to education and the emerging field of research on professionalization, it will also appeal to anyone with a general interest in how people acquire their worldviews and how these views influence their actions.
