Abstract [en]

In this article a study of male and female social workers’ assessments of a fictitious same-gender client’s problems and needs is presented. A vignette and questionnaire were mailed to a random sample of Swedish social welfare officers. A total of 222 cases of same-gender assessments were statistically analyzed. The findings suggest that the outcome of the assessments, at least to some extent, seems to depend on the gender of the client, the gender of the assessor, and how the problem area or situation of the client is ‘gendered’. Concerning some situations and problem areas, the same-gender dyads tend to strengthen stereotypical expectations on men and women as clients. Above all, the male same-gender dyad seems to have contributively consequences, in particular concerning proposed help-giving practices for the client. One way to carry out further research on this matter could be to incorporate a number of more refined ‘gendered’ problem areas and situations in a study with a comprehensive factorial design.
