    An Explorative Integration of Factors Causing Men's Violence against Women2017In: Journal of Psychology and Clinical Psychiatry, ISSN 2373-6445, Vol. 8, no 2, p. 2-11Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite the great progress in individual disciplines studying men’s physical violence against women, the various disciplines have developed much different approaches that by themselves are insufficient for understanding the processes that lead to men’s violence against women. Moreover, they also tend to neglect the equally important issue of understanding why some men are not violent toward women. The aim of this work is to integrate former research on socially modifiable factors and therefore does not include theories relating genetics and neurochemistry that may also play an important role. It shows how the psychological approach within criminology can be integrated with the feminist masculinity perspective. The work illustrates that it is both theoretically and methodologically possible, through an integration of previous research, to make hypotheses about under which conditions men are likely to be violent against women, as well as make hypotheses about under what conditions men are unlikely to be violent against women. This study also emphasizes methodologically important non-dichotomous forms where both enabling and reactive conditions are mixed at various levels. Despite the methodological problems, an integrated perspective on men’s violence against women is the most promising way forward today.

    Skam- och stigmatiseringsprocessers betydelse vid behandling av våldsverkande män. Peter Jansson, Högskolan Dalarna, Akad. för Hälsa och Samh.; Socialt arbete, 791 88 FALUN. I vålds- och missbruksbehandl. av unga män tas i varierande grad hänsyn till skam- och stigmatiseringprocessers betydelse för behandlingens resultat, trots att skammens betydelse för stigmatisering har stöd i forskning. Inställningen till klienten hos behandlande personal och behandlingsmetodernas tillämpning, kan innebära att klientens självbild som stigmatiserad förstärks, är oförändrad eller konstruktivt rekonstrueras. Med utgångspunkt i behandlade personals erfarenh. av tillämpningen av behandlingsmetoder och klienters erfarenh. av behandl. kan slutsatser dras om hur klientens stigma konstrueras. Syftet är att utveckla och testa hypoteser om skam- och stigmatiseringsprocessers betydelse vid behandling av våldsverkande män. - Har behandlingsmetoder av våldsverkande män skam- eller stolthetsskapande innehåll. Förstärks en stigmatiserad identitet eller rekonstrueras den konstruktivt? - Vilka exempel finns på stolthets- och skamskapande situationer hos klienterna? Data samlas in under två faser, fas 1 omfattar en pilotstudie, där ett urval av behandl. personal samt ett urval klienter intervjuas i avsikt att konkretisera de frågeställningar som studien omfattar. Den första hypotesgenererande fasen kompletteras i fas 2 med delt. observ. och intervjuer samt dokumentanalys. Datainsamlingsmetoderna är intervjuer med personal och klienter, dokumentanalys samt deltagande observ. av klientsamtal. Analysmetoderna är kvalitativa med tonvikt på diskurs- och innehållsanalys. De förväntade resultaten är att behandlingmetoder innefattande en förståelse av att klientens stigma påverkas av stolthets- respektive skamskapande behandling också leder till en konstruktiv rekonstruktion av klientens status som stigmatiserad. Behandlingsmetoder där personalen inte har denna kunskap motverkar en rekonstruktion av en stigmatiserad identitet.

    Våldets onda cirklar: En explorativ undersökning av mäns barndomsupplevelser, maskuliniteter, känslor, våld samt terapeutiska interventioner mot våld2016Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation’s objective is to explore the possibilities of an integrated research perspective on male violence and exemplify how such research can be conducted. The specific objective is to increase awareness of how men’s childhood experiences, socialization, masculinity and emotions are related to their violence against other men, against themselves and against women (Paper III and IV) and how therapeutic interventions against violence can be analyzed and developed in correspondence with this knowledge (Paper I and II).

    The research was conducted through qualitative studies. The data collection methods comprised a theoretical review (Paper I), group-interviews (Papers II and III) and interviews (Paper IV). Altogether, 25 men participated in the studies.

    Qualitative content analysis was used to analyze the group-interviews (Paper II and III) and biographical analysis wasused to when analyzing the mens life-histories (Paper IV). The findings showed that an integrative perspective can reduce the risk of ecological fallacies and develop the understanding of the complex interaction between the factors behind men’s violence. These findings may also contribute to the development of violence therapies. The theoretical review article (Study I) exemplifies how the theoretical and methodological driven research on social bonds can be adjusted to treatment against male violence. The applied study on a CBT-therapy (Study II) exemplifies how operationalized indicators of pride and shame can be used to determine the quality of the social bonds between therapist and client. The comparison between two groups of men in two opposite masculinity positions (Study III) shows that both groups are carrying ambivalent attitudes towards violence and violence against women. Nevertheless the group’s masculinity constructions and attitudes towards violence correspond with their access to economic, social, political and cultural resources. The biographical focused qualitative study of men in violence treatment (Study IV) shows that the men who have been subjected to severe violence in their childhood are more shame-prone and tend to bypass shame with aggressions and violence. The other men generally describe their violent reaction as controlled.

    The findings point to the general conclusion that the further development of the understanding of men’s violence, and the development of effective therapies against violence are depending on our ability to integrate research from different scientific perspectives.

    Ambivalent attitudes towards equality and violence against women among men in a pro-feminist network2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    There is a great need for more knowledge on how a pro-feminist masculinity that challenges the normative hegemonic masculinity can be developed. To achieve this, it is important to gain more knowledge on how pro-feminist men relate to gender quality, violence in general and violence against women in particular, and when and why their reasoning points to ambivalence.The study was based on secondary analyzes of qualitative interviews done with five men active in a pro-feminist network in Sweden. The research questions applied spanned over several areas: socioeconomic status, masculinity construction and the men’s proximity to violence. Data analysis method used was content analysis, and as a means of increasing the reliability, member-check was used. The study was approved by the Regional Ethical Review Board.On a general level, the results show that the men’s masculine construction towards gender equality corresponded with their privileged position as regards to their socioeconomic status, as regards to educational level and job career. The men were positive to gender equality and opposed both men’s control of woman and violence against women. More in-depth analysis thus shows that the interviewed men acknowledged using some forms of less overt control over women and thus in some sense showed ambivalent attitude to gender equality. The men also, somewhat paradoxically, accepted some conventional forms of men’s violence.

    A conclusion from the study is that the conditions that the results highlights may pose problems for the development of gender equality and the ending of violence against women. This is because to make violence against women end all men, and particularly pro-feminist men, need to renounce all forms of violence and be aware of how gender equality can be weakened or strengthened by all different forms of gender interaction.

    Carers in the welfare state: on informal care and support for carers in Sweden2005Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

     

    The general aim of this dissertation is to describe and analyse patterns of informal care and support for carers in Sweden. One specific aim is to study patterns of informal care from a broad population perspective in terms of types of care and types of carer. A typology of four different care categories based on what carers do revealed that women were much more likely than men to be involved at the ‘heavy end’ of caring, i.e. providing personal care in combination with a variety of other caring tasks. Men were more likely than women to provide some kind of practical help (Study I).

    Another aim is to investigate which support services are received by which types of informal caregiver. Relatively few informal caregivers in any care category were found to be receiving any kind of support from municipalities or voluntary organizations, for example training or financial assistance (Study II).

    The same study also examines which kinds of help care recipients receive in addition to that provided by informal carers. It appears that people in receipt of personal care from an informal caregiver quite often also receive help from the public care system, in this case mostly municipal services. However, the majority of those receiving personal, informal care did not receive any help from the public care system or from voluntary organizations or for-profit agencies (Study II).

    The empirical material in studies I and II comprises survey data from telephone interviews with a random sample of residents in the County of Stockholm aged between 18 and 84.

    In a number of countries there is a growing interest among social scientists and social policymakers in examining the types of support services that might be needed by people who provide informal care for older people and others. A further aim of the present dissertation is therefore to describe and analyse the carer support that is provided by municipalities and voluntary organizations in Sweden. The dissertation examines whether this support is aimed directly or indirectly at caregivers and discusses whether the Swedish government’s special financial investment in help for carers actually led to any changes in the support provided by municipalities and voluntary organisations. The main types of carer support offered by the municipalities were payment for care-giving, relief services and day care. The chief forms of carer support provided by the voluntary organizations were support groups, training groups, and a number of services aimed primarily at the elderly care recipients (Study III).

    Patterns of change in municipal carer support could be discerned fairly soon. The Swedish government’s special allocation to municipalities and voluntary organisations appears to have led to an increase in the number of municipalities providing direct support for carers, such as training, information material and professional caregiver consultants. On the other hand, only minor changes could be discerned in the pattern of carer support services provided by the voluntary organizations. This demonstrates stability and the relatively low impact that policy initiatives seem to have on voluntary organizations as providers (Study IV).

    In studies III and IV the empirical material consists of survey data from mail questionnaires sent to municipalities and voluntary organizations in the County of Stockholm.

    In the fields of social planning and social work there appears to be a need to clarify the aims of support services for informal carers. Should the support be direct or indirect? Should it be used to supplement or substitute caregivers? In this process of reappraisal it will be important to take the needs of both caregivers and care recipients into account when developing existing and new forms of support. How informal caregivers and care recipients interact with the care system as a whole is undeniably a fertile field for further research.

    Informal care and support for carers in Sweden: patterns of service receipt among informal caregivers and care recipients2004In: European Journal of Social Work, ISSN 1369-1457, E-ISSN 1468-2664, Vol. 7, no 1, p. 7-24Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study describes and analyses the kinds of support received by different categories of informal carers, and the kinds of help that care recipients receive in addition to that provided by various categories of carers. Data were collected in a Swedish county in 2000, by means of telephone interviews. The net sample consisted of 2,697 individuals 18-84 years old, and the response rate was 61%. The results showed that relatively few carers in any care category received any kind of support aimed directly at them as carers. The most widespread form of support received by providers of personal care was relief services. Those most likely to be receiving care from the public care system were people also receiving personal care from an informal caregiver. Nevertheless, the majority of those receiving personal care from an informal carer did not receive any help from the public care system or from voluntary organizations or for-profit agencies. These results indicate that social policy and social work need to clarify the aims of the services they provide. They also need to take the needs of both caregivers and recipients into account when discussing support systems.

    Patterns of Informal Help and Caregiving in Sweden: a Thirteen-Year Perspective2009In: Social Policy & Administration, ISSN 0144-5596, E-ISSN 1467-9515, Vol. 43, no 7, p. 681-701Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyses informal help and caregiving in Sweden with a focus on the scope and trends of change over time. The discussion is based on the results of three national surveys and of one survey conducted in the county of Stockholm. The results indicated that informal help and caregiving was common throughout the period under study. In the 1990s, the figures were fairly stable, while from the late 1990s to 2005 there seems to have been a dramatic increase in the prevalence of such support. Two interpretative perspectives are used to discuss this pattern. One locates its point of departure in recent welfare state changes and in the substitution argument, according to which cuts in welfare services put more pressure on people to provide informal help and care. The second perspective relates to the present debate on civil society and to its possible role in contemporary society. According to the civil society perspective, an increase in the prevalence of informal help and caregiving might be interpreted as an expression of growing civic involvement ‘in its own right’, without a straightforward and simple relationship to changes in the welfare state. It is argued in the article that the two frames of interpretation should not be viewed as mutually exclusive, but rather that they represent two partly complementary approaches to the understanding of the complex dynamics of unpaid work in contemporary Swedish society.

    Skolkuratorns etiska överväganden2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Skolkuratorns yrkesutövning är mångfasetterad och komplex. Arbetet ställer höga krav på etisk medvetenhet och yrkeskompetens och vilar på humanistiska etiska värden som omgärdar yrkesutövningen. Denna studie syftade till att undersöka hur skolkuratorer tillämpar etiska överväganden och hur de förhåller sig till yrkesetiken. Studien genomfördes med fem skolkuratorer i semi-strukturerade intervjuer inom den kommunala grundskolan. Resultaten visar att skolkuratorerna förhåller sig integrerat till yrkesetiken, som en del av personligheten. Deras yrkesetiska överväganden består av en process i flera led och innehåller olika etiska teoretiska ingångar samt relaterar till den etiska koden för socialarbetare. Slutsatserna är att skolkuratorerna tillämpar etiska överväganden efter olika teoretiska modeller men med en omedvetenhet om den etiska kopplingen i praktiken och behöver stöd från skolorganisationen och intresseföreningar för att stärka medvetenheten i deras yrkesetiska överväganden.

    In this thesis, we have examined how social workers experience their profession

    with consideration to public attitudes and evidence-based practice. The study

    consists of six qualitative interviews with professional social workers in different

    municipalities and units. We have used a thematic analysis called Framework.

    The studies result showed that many social workers have experienced negative

    attitudes about the profession described in the media and from the public. All the

    social workers had heard positive things about the profession from their

    surroundings and felt pride in their work. Knowledge of evidence-based practice

    was found to vary between the social workers, but was primarily considered to be

    a support in everyday work.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to investigate how elderly care is portrayed in media. A content analysis with quantitative and qualitative approaches was made to answer the research questions. To ana-lyze and understand the results three theoretical perspectives were used: social constructivism, media logic and agenda theory. The study material was collected from two newspapers, one of which is published locally and the other at the national level, in order to gain a broader under-standing of the media's representation of elderly care and also to see the differences in various newspapers. We used the articles published during two separate months in 2015. Study results show three prominent themes in elderly care that are frequent in the media - the depiction is largely negative, with a focus on shortcomings. The portrayal is similar in both newspapers.

    Abstract [en]

    This study aims to examine how professionals in care for older people experience older people´s needs of counselling in grievous life questions. A qualitative method has been chosen in the form of individual semi-structured interviews with six care workers in municipal care for older people. The theoretical bases which have been applied are social constructionism and Erik Homburger Erikson's theory: Stages of Psychosocial Development. The result of the study shows that older people in care for older people sometimes are in need of counselling. These needs are not always fulfilled today because of the care workers lack of time and expertise in facing grievous life questions. Counsellors in care for older people are presumed to increase because older people in the future will make more demands and also will find it more natural in life crisis to talk to a counsellor.

    Abstract [en]

    The study aimed to investigate what counselors have for experience when it comes to children and

    young people's use of social media. Do they see any risks of being online?

    The study is based on a qualitative approach with individual semi-structured interviews that were

    conducted with counselors in primary- and secondary schools and youth counseling. The applied

    theoretical interpretative framework is a theory of John Suler, which can give us an explanation of

    why they on the internet act more uninhibited.

    The study results show us that there are risks associated with the use of social media in several

    aspects. To name a few, there are risks of being exposed to abuse, bullying and sexual harassment

    when you are online. In our opinion, the study's findings contribute to an increased knowledge of

    this phenomenon and give us deeper knowledge from a new perspective, the counselor.

    Our aim with this study was to explore how parents of children diagnosed within the autism spectrum disorder (ASD) experienced the contact and support from the municipalities family therapist, an initiative provided by the social services and often executed by social workers. We wanted to investigate how parents experienced treatment from the family therapist, if they received constructive help and whether the family therapist had knowledge of the ASD. We have had a qualitative approach and conducted semi-structured interviews. The transcribed interviews have been interpreted with themes based on the theoretical framework that consists of the concept of alliance and support theory. Our result shows that the informants have had positive experiences in the meeting with family therapists. Most have received constructive help from family therapists who had knowledge about ASD and feel they have received good treatment. The result shows which factors contributed to a

    positive experience.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to examine what counselling means to school counselors who work at lower secondary schools and how they use counselling in their practice. The collected data is based on qualitative interviews with six school counselors. The data was analyzed towards a theoretical framework consisting of perspectives of counselling, counselling skills as well as tools and methods which can be used in conversations. The data was also analyzed towards previous research. The result shows that counselling is seen as unclear, a non-treatment method and counselling apprehends as a handicraft. The counselling is flexible and the design can be adapted to the pupils needs and situation. It’s important with a structure in conversations, the alliance with the pupil and the school counselors approach in counselling. The result also shows that motivational interviewing is used and that the school counselors is using an integrated work procedure in counselling.

To achieve an empirical material social workers who perform Trappan-samtal have been interviewed. The study shows that it is important that children get help and support to talk about the trauma they experienced. The support of the narrative, however, differ depending on the child's age, it is important to have a flexible approach as a Trappan-user. It appears that it is essential that parents give their consent to the children so they can talk about the violence. It also emerges that information to the children is an important part of understanding the process. The study shows that social workers feel that the children participating in the staircase mission get a sense of coherence.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the study was to investigate the support work that counselors perform with deaf patients and the counselors' attitude toward the disability. The method used was semistructured interviews. The results show that support from the counselors is based on a sociocultural perspective - deaf people are regarded as an ethnic group with its own culture and language, but with variations in attitudes of the counselor. The attitude is affected by cultural norms and relates to which perspective the norm can be derived from. The results also show that the sociocultural perspective is overlooked by the medical aspect in contact with other organizations – the consequence is that the counselor's support efforts become secondary. The support of the counselor is also about softening the medical perspective for deaf patients - to provide assistance to self-help in order for the deaf person to manage as far as possible with owned resources.

    Biståndshandläggares arbete för att minska ensamhet och social isolering hos äldre: En intervjustudie2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to investigate the care managers’ work to reduce loneliness and social isolation in older people. A qualitative exploratory design was used and the material for the study was collected through semi-structured interviews with six care managers. Through a thematic analysis, four main themes emerged: "what is loneliness and social isolation", "identification and information", "the importance of activities and the social context" and "the care manager and the older person". In summary, the interviewed care managers describe that loneliness and social isolation can be prevented and reduced through governmental interventions, but the most important factor is proximity to family and social networks. Moreover, the care managers describe that they can experience impotency, both in relation to the individual client and in relation to framework and lack of resources within their own operation. The impotency is discussed in relation to Lipsky's theory of street level bureaucrats. Despite the challenges that exist, the care managers agree on the importance and significance of their role in working to meet the individual’s needs.

    Abstract [sv]

    Boken belyser på ett systematiskt sätt hur genusdimensionen formar socialt arbete. Boken ger perspektiv på genusfrågan utifrån fyra delar av det sociala arbetet: det sociala arbetets problem- och verksamhetsområde, det sociala arbetets organisering, professionaliseringen av socialt arbete,samt det direkta arbetet med brukarna. Författarna diskuterar de utmaningar som det sociala arbetet står inför när det gäller att skapa utrymme för kritisk reflektion kring den egna praktiken och att praktiskt genomföra ett genusmedvetet socialt arbete.Boken kan läsas av både dem som är nybörjare på området och dem som är mer bevandrade i genusteori. Även om boken i första hand vänder sig till verksamma inom socialt arbete är innehållet relevant också för andra professioner som till exempel läkare, psykologer och sjuksköterskor.

    Förståelse, bedömningar och hjälpinsatser: Socialarbetares arbete med män som våldsoffer2015Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This report outlines the background to, and presents the results from the Crime Victim Compensation and Support Authority funded project "Social Workers' understanding of men as victims of crime". The project aimed at describing and analyzing how social workers understand and work with male victims of violence. More precisely, the research has focused on how social workers describe men's vulnerability and how they understand men's needs for assistance, what assistance that is provided and the way the constellations of perpetrators and victims of different gender and contexts in which the violence occurs in affect the understanding of male victims of violence. The study has also been devoted to the question of whether the Support Centers for young crime victims in Sweden provide different types of and different amount of help to young men and women afflicted of violence. The project was conducted in three substudies.

    The results from substudy 1 show that more young men than women seek support from the Support centers studied. Men predominate in number of cases and in the different categories of crime. The results also show that young men on average receive less assistance over a shorter average duration than young women. This applies irrespective of the category of offense that the vulnerability applies to. Furthermore, the young men, compared to the women, proportionally receive fewer interventions characterized as support and a greater proportion of interventions in the form of information. The results also show that the young men are referred on for further action to a lesser extent than is the case for women.

    The results from substudy 2 show that social workers tend to focus on whether, and to what extent, young men who are victims of violence themselves have behaved provocatively before the violence incident and if they have put themselves in a social situation that could be interpreted as having contributed to an escalation of the violence they have been subjected to. The results from substudy 2 also show that social workers talk about the men as active in the violent situations they have been involved in and dwell on the extent to which the young men's own actions have contributed to the violence. The results also show that young men who are victims of violence are described as "reluctant" victims who are trying to cope with their situation on their own without the involvement of professional or other helper. The young men are also described as reluctant to talk about their feelings.

    The results of substudy 3 show that social workers believe that young men, when they become victims of violence, risks losing their sense of autonomy, initiative and decisiveness, that is, attributes that are often linked to the dominating cultural image of masculinity. Furthermore, the results show that social workers estimate that men's practicing of their masculinity, but also the response that men who are traumatized get from society, creates difficulties for them to get help. The results from substudy 3 also shows that attributes and actions that can be connected to the masculinity of young men's, as well as a lack of such attributes and actions are considered to be adequate explanations for the violence the men has suffered. When it comes to violence in public places it is the masculinity that explains the violence and its escalation. When it comes to domestic violence it is the lack of expected male attributes and actions that are used as explanations for the violence that have occurred.

    The discussion is devoted to the question of how the results should be understood based on the concepts of self-performance, interpretation, negotiation and categorizations, and the consequences the results obtained should have for gender sensitive social work given to abused men.

    Abstract [en]

    In 2015, 5920 cases of sexual abuse were reported in Sweden, there are also hidden statistics of non reported cases. To be sexally asulted is an undermining of the human rights. The purpose of this study declare how victims and perpetrators are depicted in swedish sexual assault convictions from a socialconstuctionistic perspective as well as an intersectional perspective. The purpose is also to research if and if so, how these depictions have changed over time. This study is a qualitative literature analysis covering swedish sexual assault convictions, the method of analysis used was inspired by discourse analysis. The results show how the victim and perpetrator are depicted in different manners, because different aspects are highlighted for victim versus perpetrator. Aspects such as gender, social class and ethnicity are contributors to the process of this depiction. Support has also been found to show changes over time to how the victim are described, this means the depiction fluctuates with the particular context as well as over time.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this qualitative study was to examine features of ”good girls” in high school, which methods that is used in treatment with them and to explore the potential risks they may be facing, all from school counselors point of view. Six semistructured interviews were made with high school counselors employed in central Sweden. The results showed that ”good girls” is a group that strives for fulfillment of both their own and others expectations. They possess many strengths and have the ability to achieve much in life, but is also in need of support to get there. They tend to suffer from poor self-esteem, which is the main thing that the school counselors aim to strenghten in this group. The primary risk for ”good girls” is considered to be mental illness, which is a probable consequence of poor self-esteem and the search for confirmation from others to feel worthy.

    Abstract [en]

    There is a lack of knowledge concerning the importance of parenthood for people with substance abuse problems. The purpose of the study was to investigate how treatment workers' treatment of parents with substance abuse problems can be influenced by gender issues. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with six people working at a home for care or housing. The study shows that the parenting role of drug abusers is not taken into account, the clients are being seen primarily as addicts, second as women or men, and are last seen as parents. The results show that treatment staff find that mothers are considered to be more important for the child / children than fathers, which is due to stereotype gender norms. The fact that father's parenthood and relationship with the child / children are not consider as important is something that reflects on what support is requested and what kind of support that is available.

    Abstract [en]

    Summary

    To become, to be and to have been: about the  Jehovah’s Witnesses

    The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, in the following text referred to as the Jehovah’s Witnesses or “the organisation”, is a worldwide Christian organisation with about 6.7 million members. The organisation has many times, without any success so far, proclaimed Armageddon when they expect Jehovah to return to Earth. They interpret the Bible in their own, often very literal way, and require their members to live according to these interpretations. Among the consequences of this, members are forbidden to vote, to do military service or to receive blood transfusions. Apart from attending the three weekly meetings, members are expected to be active in missionary work, known as “publishing”. If a member fails to do a certain number of hours’ publishing, he or she risks being deprived of active membership status

    Sweden in general is considered to be a society where the population is not very religious. The formerly state-governed Lutheran church has lost its influence and the vast majority of ordinary Swedes do not visit church on other occasions than weddings, funerals or christenings. Expressing one’s own religious values has become somewhat of a private matter where publicity is seldom appreciated, which is contrary to the practice of the Jehovah’s Witnesses. This is one of the reasons why the Jehovah’s Witnesses are commonly perceived by average Swedes as a “suspicious” religious organisation.

    The aim and methods of the study

    This dissertation seeks to describe and investigate the entering and leaving of a highly structured and hierarchical religious community, exemplified in this case by the Jehovah’s Witnesses. What are the thoughts and aspirations of someone who is considering becoming a Jehovah’s Witness? What are the priorities and what experiences seem important when a person is going through such a process? And when this person has finally reached his or her goal of becoming a member, is it the same motivation that makes him or her stay in the organisation for longer periods of time, possibly for the rest of their lives, or does it change during the process of entering, or does this motivation change its character during the transition from entering to being a regular member?

    Why do some of the members change their attitude to the Jehovah’s Witnesses from rejoicing to bitterness? And how does this process of exit manifest itself? In what way is it different from the process of entry?

    The respondents in this study were chosen from both active members of the Jehovah’s Witnesses in Sweden and those who have left the organisation for personal reasons. Repeated interviews with ten active members of the organisation have been conducted in the course of the study and compared to equal numbers of former members. The interviews have been semi-structured to deal with questions of how a person has come into contact with the organisation; how they retrospectively experienced the process of entry; the reasons for becoming a member. Questions have also been asked about life in the organisation. The group of “exiters” have also been asked about the experience of leaving, why they wanted to leave, and how this process was started and carried out.

    In addition to this I have analysed a four-year diary describing the time inside and the process of leaving the organisation. This has given me an extra psychological insight into the inner experience of someone who has gone through the whole process.

    The analysis has been done by categorising the content of the transcribed interviews. An attempt to outline a model of an entry and exit process has been made, based on ideas and interpretations presented in the interviews. The analysis of the diary has involved thorough reading, resulting in a division of it into four different parts, where each part has been given a certain key-word, signifying the author’s emotional state when writing it. A great deal of the information about the Jehovah’s Witnesses has been collected through discussion boards on the Internet, informal talks with members and ex-members, interviews with representatives of the organisations during visits to its different offices (Bethels), such as St. Petersburg, Russia, and Brooklyn, New York, USA.

    The context

    Each organisation evolves in its own context with its own norms, roles and stories that would not survive outside it. With this as a starting point, there is a chapter dedicated to the description of the organisation’s history, structure and activities. It has been stated that the organisation’s treatment of its critical members and the strategies for recruiting new members have evolved over the years of its history. At the beginning there was an openness allowing members to be critical. As the structure of the organisation has become more rigid and formalised, the treatment of internal critics has become much less tolerated and exclusion has become a frequent option.

    As a rule many new members have been attracted to the organisation when (1) the day of Armageddon has been pronounced to be approaching; (2) the members of the organisation have been persecuted or threatened with persecution; and (3) the organisation has discovered a “new market”.

    The processes for entering and exiting

    How the entering processes manifest themselves depends on whether the person has been brought up in the organisation or not. A person converting as an adult has to pass six phases before being considered a Jehovah’s Witness by the organisation. These are:

     Contact with the Jehovah’s Witnesses,

    • Studying the bible with members of the organisation,
    • Questioning,
    • Accepting,
    • Being active as publisher (spreading the belief),
    • Being baptised.

     For a person brought up in the organisation, the process to full membership is much shorter:

     

    • Upbringing in the organisation,
    • Taking a stand on the belief,
    • Being baptised.

    The exit process contains of seven phases:

     

    • Different levels of doubts,
    • Testing of doubts,
    • Turning points,
    • Different kinds of decisions,
    • Different steps in executing the decisions,
    • Floating, a period of emotional and cognitive consideration of membership and its experiences,
    • Realtive neutrality.

     

    The process in and the process out are both slow and are accompanied with anguish and doubts. When a person is going through the process in or out of the organisation he or she experiences criticism. This is when people around the adept question the decision to continue in the process. The result of the criticism depends on where in the process the person is. If he or she is at the beginning of the process, the criticism will probably make the person insecure and the process will slow down or stop. If the criticism is pronounced in a later phase, the process will probably speed up.

    The norms of the organisation affect the behaviour of the members. There are techniques for inclusion that both bind members to the organisation and shield them off from the surrounding society. Examples of techniques for inclusion are the “work situation” and “closed doors”. The work situation signifies that members who do as the organisation recommends – doing simple work – often end up in the same branch of industry as many other Jehovah’s Witnesses. This often means that the person has other witnesses as workmates. If the person is unemployed or moves to another town it is easy to find a new job through connections in the organisation.

    Doubts and exclusions can lead to problems since they entail a risk of losing one’s job. This can also result in problems getting a new job. Jehovah’s Witnesses are not supposed to talk to excluded members, which of course mean difficulties working together. “Closed doors” means that members who do as the organisation recommends – not pursuing higher education, not engaging in civil society, working with a manual or in other way simple job, putting much time into the organisation – will, after a long life in the organisation, have problems starting a new life outside the Jehovah’s Witnesses.

    The language used in the organisation shows the community among the members, thus the language is one of the most important symbols. A special way of thinking is created through the language. It binds members to the organisation and sometimes it can work as a way to get back into the normative world of the organisation.

    Randall Collins’s (1990, 2004) thoughts about “emotional energy” have enabled an understanding of the solidarity and unity in the organisation. This also gives an understanding of the way the members treat doubting and critical members. The members who want to exit have to open up the binding/screening off. A possible way to do that is through language, to become aware of the effect the language might have. Another way is to search for emotional energy in another situation.

    During the exit process, shame might be of some importance. When members become aware of the shame they feel, because they perceive they are “acting a belief”, the exit process might accelerate.

    Att lämna en värld: Om utgångsprocesser ur Jehovas vittnen2009In: Socialvetenskaplig tidskrift, ISSN 1104-1420, no 3-4Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    It is an everyday experience to realize that things do not turn out the as expected. But what if you realize that everything you have so far experienced as reality is illusion? This article is about former members of the Jehovah’s Witnesses who have had doubts about what they previously believed to be the Truth. The article also treats the exit process, from being a Jehovah’s Witness to becoming an ex-Jehovah’s Witness. The data consists of twenty qualitative interviews with ten Jehovah’s Witnesses and twenty qualitative interviews with ten former Jehovah’s Witnesses. The data also include a diary written during four years preceding an exit from the organization. The analysis was made through thematic concentration. Ontologically the analysis and the article are based on a constructionist view though it is mainly empirical with no further theoretical assessment. However, to be able to understand the results a contextual frame is sketched with two factors affecting members who make an exit. First there are tying factors that bind the person closer to the organization; these are closeness and friendship and confirmation. A secluding factor is something that secludes the member from the outside society; these factors are the work situation and »closed doors«. With high values on these factors the exit process will be more arduous. The results are presented through a process model in which different phases or steps in the exit process are described. The following steps in the process are: (1) different levels of doubts; (2) trying out doubts; (3) turning points; (4) different decisions; (5) different steps in execution; (6) floating; (7) relative neutrality. The process is defined as an altogether ambivalent and emotionally tough experience, but other parts of life may be affected as well, such as employment, social life, family life and career.

    Universities in the Global North teach social work in the Global South from time to time. This paper aims to describe and discuss such projects from a pedagogical aspect, with a focus on teaching styles. Nine interviews were conducted with Swedish teachers who had experience of teaching in Iraqi Kurdistan. The paper sketches their strategies they developed during their period of teaching social work abroad.The teachers had different ways of handling the teaching situation and the styles were divided into three major types. These styles are referred to hereas Co-traveller, Therapeutic and Socratic.

    Abstract [sv]

    Vad är socialt arbete? Ja, den här boken ska göra det lite svårare för dig att ge ett svar på den frågan! Åtminstone ett enkelt svar. För socialt arbete är så mycket och så varierande. Att vara socialarbetare är att ha en arbetsuppgift och ett ansvar som kan vara livsavgörande för den människa man samarbetar med. Just därför är det sociala arbetet ett så fascinerande professionsfält! Med boken följer eLabbet, som är ett webbaserat studiestöd. eLabbet för Förstå socialt arbete innehåller ca 115 instuderingsfrågor och ca 10 relevanta praktikfall. Här kan man träna på viktiga ord, begrepp och fakta och få omedelbar feedback. Här kan man också tillämpa sina kunskaper på verklighetsorienterade praktikfall. eLabbet innehåller dessutom interaktiva kunskapstester med slumpade testfrågor där man kan repetera sina kunskaper samt få läs- och länktips.  Aktiveringskod följer med boken. För mer information om eLabbet samt inloggning, gå till www.liber.se/elabbet.Läs mer Det sociala arbetet lämnar inte den professionella aktören, socialarbetaren oberörd. Vi förändras och utvecklas med arbetet, och vi genomgår professionella kriser. Att vara socialarbetare innebär en utmaning och det vi sätter på spel är den egna personen och den egna självuppfattningen. Det sociala arbetet spänner över stora kunskapsområden och en mängd arbetsuppgifter, som kan vara av mycket olika karaktär. Vi befinner oss i ett spänningsfält mellan de stora sociala perspektiven på samhället och det psykologiska djupseendet beträffande den enskilda människan. Förstå socialt arbete är en grundbok om socialt arbete, som det finns skäl att återvända till under hela utbildningstiden. Den teoretiska grundtonen gör boken intressant även för praktiskt verksamma socialarbetare. Om författarna Bengt Börjeson är professor i socialt arbete vid Ersta Sköndal högskola. Under sin mångåriga karriär har han även varit professor i socialt arbete vid universiteten i Umeå och Stockholm, samt rektor för Lärarhögskolan i Stockholm. Han har också under många år arbetat vid och varit chef för Barnbyn Skå. eLabbet är utvecklat av Pernilla Liedgren Dobronravoff, lektor i socialt arbete vid Ersta Sköndal högskola.

    Strategies among young Jehovah's Witnesses in secondary school in Sweden2013In: Religion in Scandinavia, 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sweden is among the most secular countries in the world and Jehovah’s Witness is a fundamentalist Christian organization with an ambition to present its interpretation of the Bible as truth. Emerging adults in Jehovah’s Witness are expected to behave and believe according to rules and a view of life which distinguish them from the values and teachings of the Swedish school.  The aim of the paper is to present strategies and reflections among Jehovah’s Witnesses in Swedish secondary school to meet the expectations of the religious community, when these are in conflict with the values and teachings of the school.

    Abstract [en]

    Universities in the Global North teach social work in the Global South from time to time. This article aims to describe and discuss such projects from a pedagogical aspect, with a focus on teaching styles. Nine interviews were conducted with Swedish teachers who had experience of teaching in Iraqi Kurdistan. The article sketches their strategies they developed during their period of teaching social work abroad. The teachers had different ways of handling the teaching situation and the styles were divided into three major types. These styles are referred to here as Co-traveller, Therapeutic and Socratic.
