Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate perceptions and experiences of compassion fatigue that exist among social workers who work with the investigative work of unaccompanied children and adolescents. The study further investigated their experiences of preventive and counteracting actions.

In this qualitative study, interviews were conducted with six social workers who worked with unaccompanied children and adolescents.

The results show that social workers have experiences of compassion fatigue. There are many descriptions of burnout syndrome, and a few descriptions of secondary traumatic stress. The results also show that social workers have many ideas about how to prevent or counteract compassion fatigue, both with ideas in the form of self-care or ideas about organizational changes.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka vilka upplevelser och erfarenheter av compassion fatigue som finns bland socialsekreterare som arbetar med utredningsarbete av ensamkommande barn och ungdomar.

I studien undersöktes också deras upplevelser av förebyggande eller motverkande åtgärder. Studien är kvalitativ och sex socialsekreterare som arbetar med ensamkommande barn och ungdomar intervjuades. Resultatet visar att socialsekreterarna har upplevelser och erfarenheter av compassion fatigue. Det finns många beskrivningar av utmattningssyndrom, och ett fåtal beskrivningar av sekundär traumatisk stress. Resultatet visar också att socialsekreterarna har många tankar om hur man förebygger eller motverkar compassion fatigue, både i form av egenvård eller idéer om organisatoriska förändringar.
