Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine how social workers look at the importance of

knowledge of culture in social work. A qualitative interview study was used in which five social workers were interviewed. The results were then analyzed based on previous research and culture as a theoretical framework. The study shows that social workers believe that knowledge of culture is of great importance in their practical social work. Knowledge of culture was seen as a contribute to a further understanding of different circumstances of the clients. Social workers were found to have different views on the extent of their knowledge

of culture as some felt that their knowledge is sufficient to be able to perform good social

work, while others thought that they are in need of more knowledge. The social workers own

culture were seen by some as an important part in meeting with clients, while others were

not at all aware of their own culture and its influence on their work.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med undersökningen är att undersöka hur socialsekreterare ser på betydelsen av kunskap om kulturer i socialt arbete. En kvalitativ intervjuundersökning har genomförts där fem socialsekreterare intervjuats. Resultatet har sedan analyserats utifrån tidigare forskning samt kultur som tolkningsram. Undersökningen visar att socialsekreterarna anser att kunskap om kultur har en stor betydelse i deras praktiska sociala arbete. Kunskapen om kultur sågs som något som kan bidra till en vidare förståelse av olika omständigheter kring klienterna. Socialsekreterarna visade sig ha olika uppfattning om i vilken grad de ansåg sig ha kunskap om

kultur då vissa ansåg att deras kunskap är tillräcklig för att kunna genomföra ett bra socialt arbete medan andra menade att de är i behov av mer kunskap. Slutligen visas att vissa av socialsekreterarna såg sin egen kultur som en viktig del i mötet med klienter medan andra inte alls var medvetna om den egna kulturen och dess påverkan på deras arbete.
