Problematic gaming among adolescents : -social workers’ experiences of dealing with problematic gaming (English)
Abstract [sv]

Problematiskt spelande hos unga i Sverige är ett växande problem och många föräldrar, skolan och socialtjänsten oroar sig över den negativa påverkan spelandet kan ha på unga. Syftet med studien var att undersöka och beskriva de upplevelser som socialarbetare har gällande spelproblematik och dess betydelse för unga. Metoden som användes var kvalitativ i form av intervjuer med både kommunala socialarbetare och skolkuratorer där materialet sen bearbetades i en tematisk analys. Resultaten påvisade en stor oro bland de professionella och att spelandet upplevdes ha stora konsekvenser för många unga, med inslag av positiva aspekter. Vår slutsats är att det finns en motiverad oro för den växande spelproblematiken och att det råder ett bristfälligt kunskapsläge gällande modernt spelande.

The results showed that there is great concern among the professionals and that gaming can involve great consequences for many adolescents including some positive aspects. However, the conclusions are that there are reasons to be concerned about the growing problematic gaming among adolescents and that there is a need for increased knowledge on the subject.
