To abuse gender : A qualitative study with a gender perspective on judgements according the Law (1988:870) about treatment of persons with a substance abuse in certain cases (LVM) (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to investigate how gender perceptions appear in judgments on compulsory care of persons with ongoing substance abuse (LVM) in Sweden, to develop an understanding for how these perceptions may influence the way that the court relates to judging men and woman. By analysing 20 court cases, of which 10 are on women and 10 are on men, we have been able to examine which gender perceptions appear in these court cases.

Earlier research has shown that gender perceptions appear in the general field of social work and specifically in the field of substance abuse treatment. Earlier research also mentions that the gender perspective is quite absent in research regarding social work.

The study shows that there are gender perceptions that appear in judgements on compulsory care and that certain descriptions are connected to each gender. I.e. the study shows that woman often is described as vulnerable, passive, and more likely to be seen as mentally ill, while men tend to be described as aggressive, active and their mental health are more likely to be ignored. In this study, we also discuss how these perceptions may affect the outcome of the judgements.
