Socialarbetaren i organisationen: Anpassning eller inflytande?

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Lunds universitet/Socialhögskolan

Sammanfattning: The aim of this paper was to examine how social workers' comprehension of the need of financial aid exists in, and is influated by, the organisation they work in. To investigate this, we asked ourself questions concerning how the social worker view the way that the finicial aid-system and work surrounding it is formed, whether the social worker's understanding of the need of financial aid co-exists with the percieved common understanding of the work place (do the understandings coincide, do the social worker adjust his or her understanding or is it possible to have a separate understanding), whether the social worker feel that he or she have discretion to influence the organisation and how possible conflicts between different views are handled. We felt that a qualitative method would best help us answer these questions. We therefore interviewed seven social workers working in the same organisation. We then looked at our material from an organisational theory perspective, focusing on the individual in the organisation. We found that the social workers were socialised into the organisation and adapted the norms and values that existed there. There is a constant adjustment to a common view of the need of financial aid and how the work should be carried out. However, the social workers themselves can also effect the common norms and values. We therefore claim that social workers' comprehension of the need of financial aid both influence and are influenced by the organsation they work in.
