    Is Social Work a changing profession?

    We have during the last decades seen an expansion of different kind of new management control devices in the social services such as quality assurance systems and different kind of “standards” or measurements like for example ASI (addiction severity index). This can on a societal level sees as an attempt to increase the transparency of professions in order to allow for public influence over and knowledge of professionals’ working process. This different kind of control-systems can also be seen as a threat to professions autonomy, their power and ability to make own evaluations and judgements in their every-day work (Abbot 1988). During the last years there has been an increased discussion in Social work about Evidence based knowledge and practice. The Swedish National Board for Health and Welfare provided financial support in several municipalities during 2002-2004 to increase knowledge and evidence based methods in the social services (Socialstyrelsen 2003, 2004. These phenomena, “Quality assurance programmes” and “Evidence based knowledge” are examples of increased governance over occupational professions (Hanlon 1999) and of processes connected to how these can claim their expertise and their legitimate area of discretionary judgement in a changing society.

    The concept of professionalism has come to be an appealing concept for different kind of occupational groups. Evetts, Mieg & Felt (2006:111) claim that “professionalism is used as a discourse to promote and facilitate particular occupational changes in service organisations”. By doing so, new standards is utilised in order to bring occupational change and rationalisation, and to self-discipline worker in the conduct of their work (a.a). This dilemma for occupational professions; autonomy and vocational discretion on one hand and transparency on the other hand probably implies a changing professional identity and knowledge base.

    In this paper I would like to discuss how professional identity in social work changes when new standards are implemented in the organisations. Do these processes of professionalism imply a re - or a de-professionalisation? The discussion will be based from experiences in Sociorama -a large-scale experimental program in developing knowledge in social work (Harnegård m. Fl 2005, Johnsson m. Fl 2005, Salonen 2005, Svensson & Johnsson 2006).

    Tvångsvård enligt LVM: En studie om socialsekreterares och klienters erfarenheter och upplevelser av LVM-situationen2006Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    A large part of the social work with drug abusers is carried out within the social services in Sweden. This is mostly based on voluntary treatment. An important aspect of the work is to motivate the substance abuser to stop the addiction and to change their life situation. In the Swedish welfare system, compulsory treat-ment is used in specific situations in the treatment of substance abusers and is regulated by the Care of Alcoholics and Drug Abuser Act (LVM, 1988:870). De-cisions concerning compulsory treatment are to be taken when the substance abuser has a need for care, which cannot be provided by the Social Welfare Act or in any other way. The social services apply to the county administrative court for a care order, and the court decides in accordance with the statutory provi-sions. When the social worker decides to apply for a care order, an investigation is conducted that includes both social and medical aspects.

    The aim of this study is to understand and interpret how social workers and substance abusers experience the investigation process for a care order, the time spent at the LVM-institution and after discharge. Another aim is to focus how processes of meaning are shaped within the interaction between social workers and clients. The investigation group consisted of 13 social workers and 10 sub-stance abusers who had been subjected to the process and investigation for applying for a care order. The interview was semi- structured and focused on the different stages in the LVM-process and the relationship between the social worker and the client during the investigation period. All interviews were tape recorded and transcribed to text. The material is analysed by Collins' concept of situation, which also is the main theoretical standpoint. The study shows how the situation is experienced by social workers and substance abusers through the in-vestigation process, being taken in to custody, the stay at the LVM-institution and the different positions taken by the actors during this process.

    The LVM-situation contains a combination of factors; the addiction, the sub-stance abusers’ life situation, the knowledge that the social services have about the client, the social workers’ values and knowledge and the administrative conditions. How these conditions work together and are assessed will vary depending on the interaction and relationship between social worker and client. The proc-esses of meaning that are created in the relationship between the social worker and client is analysed and theoretically interpreted. These processes create different kinds of meaning for the coercive intervention.

    Omedelbart samarbete: En rapport om polisers handlingsutrymme vid handräckning enligt LVU och LVM2006Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This report is about the co-operation between the police and the social services in the specific situation when the social services apply for assistance for taking children and drug-abusers in to involuntary care immediately. The police have an authority to use violence that social workers do not have. Therefore social workers need the police to accomplish this task. The report aims to reach a deeper understanding for how the polices' discretion is used in the situations when the police assist the social services to have children or drug abusers taken immediately in to care.

    This report comes from a study that is based on focus-group interviews and individual interviews with police officers and social workers from two districts in the south of Sweden. Eleven interviews have been conducted with thirty-two informants. All interviews were recorded and later transcribed in to text. In the analysis and interpretation of the texts, three aspects have been in focus: the legislation, the organisational conditions and the specific discretions for police and social worker. The theoretical perspective focuses on the relation between individuals and society through governmental organisations and the role and discretion of civil servants.

    The results show complex situations handled by the police and social worker in co-operation with respect for each other's competence and for the user. In the specific situations the roles for the actors are clear. Discretions are first defined by the legislation, then by the organisational aspects and in concrete action the actors experience based knowledge and personal features govern how the given discretion will be used and thereby what actions will be taken.

    Tvånget i tvångsvården2006In: Sociologisk forskning, ISSN 0038-0342, no 4, p. 23-38Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Our main aim is to understand the phenomena coersion by regarding how it is created and maintained durien coersive care of drug abusers in Sweden. In this article we follow processes through coercive care by stories from social workers and clients. 23 interviews were conducted with 13 social workers in the social services and 10 personen who have been under coercive care. The material derives from two parallel studies wher the social services work has been in focus. The interviewees' stories elucidate actions and interaction throughout the coercive care. hereby they describe a process where the drug user first is transformed from a subject to an object. When the care continues in to volontary treatment the objectification of the drug user seases and turns into a re-subjectification, where the disciplined can regain influence on his life, but this time as disciplined. We argue that coersion is productive since it produces chhanged identitites.

    Comparing two established professional groups with two “pre-professions”: Paper to be presented at the 6th Interim Meeting of the European Sociological Association, Research Network 19 'Sociology of Professions'  Paris, 22-24 April 2010 Professions and professionalism in times of global economic crisis: - Changes and continuities2010Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we will present data from a case study, including four occupations, which represent different levels of professionalism, in terms of their professional autonomy, their scientific-cognitive bases, and their degree of subordination to the logics of management and bureaucracy within the organisations where they perform their tasks. The occupations chosen are social workers, human resource management personnel (HRM), policemen and sport managers (CSM). Two of these are exclusively employed in the public sector (policemen and social workers) and two are employed mainly in the non-public sectors (HRM and CSM). Two groups are trained in well-established professional programs in the Swedish university system (social work and HRM) while the training of the other two (police and CSM) are new to the University system.

    The aim of the study focuses on the dilemmas of professionalism linked to the processes of making different occupational groups more academic. We will discuss key aspects of these occupations within a framework of the structure of the Swedish Professional Landscape. We focus on the similarities and differences among them, shaped by their different levels of acquired professionalism, their control over occupational niches, their perceived identity as an occupation/profession and the character of the scientific-cognitive basis for each group.

    The case study consists of the four occupations described above and is based on (small) surveys of students.  They participated in the study as a) students in the beginning of their studies, and as b) working in their different occupations after taken their degrees. As a complement to the surveys a number of in – depth interviews has been conducted focusing the experiences of being and becoming a professional.
