“In order to get a long term solution, the conditions have to improve…” : A qualitative interview study on social worker´s psychosocial working environment (English)
Abstract [sv]

Att arbeta inom socialtjänsten som socialsekreterare inom utredningsenheten för barn och

unga kan anses vara ett stressigt arbete med hög arbetsbelastning samt att deras arbetsmiljö

ofta är omtalad. Syftet med studien var att undersöka vilka faktorer som socialsekreterare

inom utredningsenheten för barn och unga upplevde kunde påverka deras psykosociala

arbetsmiljö. Studien byggde på kvalitativa intervjuer och resultatet analyserades utifrån kravkontroll-

och stödmodellen.

Resultatet visade att socialt stöd är en viktig komponent för att må bra i rollen som

socialsekreterare. De slutsatser som vi kan dra genom denna studie är att det finns obalans

mellan de krav som ställs på socialsekreterare och de resurser som finns att tillgå.

Förutsättningarna behöver bli bättre för att socialsekreterarna inte ska bli utsatta för stress

och ohälsa och på så sätt få en bättre psykosocial arbetsmiljö.

Abstract [en]

To work as a social worker within investigations at social services specialized in children and

young adults is assumed to be stressful with a high workload. Consequently, their working

environment is often discussed. Therefore, the aim of this paper was to investigate what

factors social workers, working under these circumstances, perceive as affecting their

psychosocial working environment. This study was based on qualitative interviews and the

result is analyzed with help of the demand- control- and support model.

The result indicates that social support is an important component to consider in order for

social workers to be healthy in their roles. The circumstances need to improve to prevent

social workers from being exposed to stress and unhealthiness, and thereby improving their

psychosocial working environment. Our conclusion from this study is that there is an

imbalance between the requirements asked from social workers and the resources available.
