Abstract [en]

Tardiness is a common problem in many schools. It can be understood as an individual risk for future problematic behavior leading to absenteeism, school dropout, exclusion and later health problems. Tardiness can also be examined in relation to a broader social-ecological perspective on health. The aim of this study was to analyze students’, school staff’s and parents’ views on students’ tardiness in two Swedish schools. A focus group interview design was used with 21 school personnel, 21 students in grade nine and two parents. The data were analyzed by using thematic content analysis. The results illustrated the main theme—It depends on . . . —regarding what will happen if a student arrives late to school lessons. This finding is further explained by the subthemes about teachers’ signals and reactions and the responses from teachers and students. The conclusion showed the importance of organizing the school day more predictably for the students. Late arrival is a sign of shortcomings in a school organization. It is necessary to develop guidelines related to how to handle students’ late arrival based on predictable viewpoints but even more so on how to promote students’ sense of belonging and their interest in and motivation for going to school.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att nå en djupare förståelse för rehabiliteringsprocessens ambition om tidig återgång i arbete och vad detta innebär för långtidssjukskrivna kvinnor. En diskursanalys, baserad på myndighetsmaterial och svaren på en öppen enkätfråga visar, hur makt och motstånd framträder i materialet och hur sjukskrivna görs till passiva mottagare av rehabilitering och/eller definieras som långsamma i relation till de normer som återfinns som del av rehabiliteringsprocessen. Mot detta gör de långtidssjukskrivna kvinnorna motstånd. Vi menar att det finns behov av en variation inom ramen för rehabiliteringsprocessen med större möjligheter för långsammare processer för dem vilka har behov av mer tid för att tillfriskna, det finns behov av att återgå i egen takt.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this article is to elucidate how male and female managers of small-scale enterprises in Norway and Sweden relate to and experience the intersection between work and private life. A qualitative content analysis was adopted to explore interviews with 18 managers. The analysis resulted in three primary categories: conflict as a part of the deal, using management to construct balance, and management identity contributing to enrichment. A key theme that emerged was doing management. Both men and women reproduced masculine values in describing their management identities and in explaining how they enacted management. This clear identification was used to legitimate conflict, construct balance and explain the interaction between work and private life as enriching. How the managers enacted gender emerged primarily in how they related to family responsibilities and their feelings of guilt in relation to home and children.

Abstract [en]

Seasonal employees at ski resorts represent a high-risk population for the use of alcohol and drugs, as well as other negative lifestyle behaviours. These employees work and live in a context where the customers are on holiday and hence alcohol is used frequently. To our knowledge there is a gap in the literature regarding alcohol and drug consumption among seasonal employees. Particularly studies in the context of ski resorts are lacking. The overall purpose of our study was to evaluate a policy-based intervention at a ski resort area in Sweden. The intervention was led by a project leader together with managers from different tourism industries, the health sector, social service and police. Components in the intervention were e.g. policy development and implementation, education of managers and creation of a manager network.  In total, 48 enterprises participated. A questionnaire, concerning alcohol and drug use and social aspects, was distributed before and after the intervention. The firs questionnaire was answered by 611 (47%) respondents and 423 (34%) respondents the follow-up questionnaire after two years. In addition, five persons in the project group was interviewed after the intervention.  Based on survey data, comparisons before and after the intervention showed several positive results. The  results show a significant reduction of hazardous drinking and an  increased awareness of the companies’ alcohol- and drug policies among the employees. No significant effects on drug consumption were found. The project group reported better knowledge about alcohol and drugs. However, most important was the increased collaboration between managers in tourism industries. The intervention also resulted in new norm breaking ideas such as a sober end of the season instead of the traditional “drinking the bar dry” and managers taking employees out on hiking instead of going out for a beer.

 

The conclusion is that seasonal tourism industries need to work with hazardous alcohol- and drug consumption from a “whole village perspective”. Successful health promotion work among seasonal employees, needs collaboration between private and public sector and should be related to cultural norms as well as working- and living conditions in the particular context, in this case the tourist resort.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to investigate the perceptions of female employees on long-term sickness absence due to common mental disorders (CMDs), in relation to what they perceive would best help them to return to work. Data were collected through a survey answered by employees at a municipality in Sweden on long-term sick leave. Results of the current study are based on a part of that material, namely from 56 women with CMDs who responded to the final open question. The analysis involves two steps. Initially, we explored themes that form the accounts in the findings. Secondly, based on the themes, collective narratives, storylines were identified. Three different storylines were found to be prominent in the findings. The storylines describe how the participants collectively expressed themselves in relation to the possibilities for return to work, and the following storylines were derived: It feels like too much, Things are moving too fast, and I have to get out of here!. The findings are related to perceived demands, control and support. From a disability management perspective, we have learned the importance of restoring the balance between demands, control and support — not only to prevent absence from work, but also to facilitate return to work after a period of long-term sickness.

Abstract [en]

Seasonal workers at tourism resorts, particularly young employees, represent a high-riskpopulation for alcohol abuse and other negative lifestyles. This study explores how managers and employees at ski resorts in Northern Sweden experience critical aspects for hazardous alcohol use at small- and medium-sized enterprises. This analysis is based on one open-ended question about hazardous alcohol use prevention at the workplace answered by 153 employees,and semi-structured interviews about being a manager at a ski resort conducted with 13managers. The analysis showed that managers’ views regarding hazardous alcohol use prevention were double-edged, which was confirmed by the employees’ answers. The managers contribute to the preservation of existing alcohol norms but simultaneously enforce policies and administer tests to control employees’ sobriety at work. Three themes emerged: reproducing existing alcohol norms, an alcohol-controlled working environment and care-taking managers. The results identified a need for early prevention initiatives focusing on the norms and work cultures of small- and medium-sized ski resorts. In relation to the theory of planned behaviour, the analysis illuminates how evaluations of behaviours related to alcohol consumption are communicated in policies and through leadership. In addition, the importance of social pressure regarding alcohol use is clarified in the material.

Abstract [sv]

Elevers närvaro i skolan är viktig både för deras kunskapsutveckling men även för deras hälsa och välmående idag och som vuxna. En betydelsefull faktor för närvaro är de sociala interaktioner som är en del av skolans vardag. Runt 20 000 elever hade 2015 olika formera av upprepad frånvaro och forskning visar att ströfrånvaro kan leda till långa perioder av frånvaro från skolan. Syftet med denna studie var att med utgångspunkt i ett pilotprojekt undersöka hur rutinerna kring rapportering och uppföljning av elevers frånvaro fungerade på två skolor i Östersunds kommun, en kommunal F–5-skola och en kommunal 6–9-skola, samt att identifiera hinder och framgångsfaktorer för elevers närvaro i skolmiljön. Erfarenheterna från projektet förväntades ge ökade kunskaper om orsaker till frånvaro och närvaro samt ge uppslag till interventioner som främjar närvaro och positiva sociala relationer i skolan. De metoder som användes var en analys av närvarorapporteringen och fokusgruppsintervjuer med elever i årskurs 9, vårdnadshavare, elevhälsopersonal på 6–9-skolan samt lärare på de två skolorna.Resultatet visar att det program som används för att rapportera närvaro på skolorna upplevs fungera bra men att det samtidigt skapar avstånd mellan vårdnadshavare och lärare. Sen ankomst och även när elever avviker från en lektion hanteras olika av olika lärare men även olika av samma lärare från gång till gång. Det finns en samstämmighet om ansvaret för elevers skolnärvaro, men eleverna upplever inte att skolan kan bidra med något om en elev inte vill gå till skolan. Det bedrivs enligt skolorna ett strukturerat arbete för likabehandling med elevhälsoplanen, och även andra strategier som syftar till ett närvarofrämjande arbete. Eleverna verkar dock inte så medvetna om det arbete som pågår utan behöver göras mer delaktiga. Relationerna mellan eleverna lyfts fram som viktiga för att främja närvaro i skolan av alla. Eleverna saknar dock en bättre relation mellan elever och lärare och ansvaret för dessa relationer kan inte ges till en annan yrkesgrupp, som till exempel fritidsledarna. Relationen mellan vårdnadshavare och skolpersonal upplevs ha brister och vårdnadshavare och skola verkar kommunicera mer digitalt än via personliga kontakter. Detta riskerar att fördjupa en frånvaroproblematik eller att tidiga signaler inte fångas upp. Också den fysiska miljön har betydelse för hur eleverna trivs på skolan. Slitna skolmiljöer och smutsiga toaletter sänder ut negativa signaler till eleverna och riskerar i sin tur att bidra till fortsatt förstörelse. Tillgång till en avkopplande miljö och återhämtning är viktiga faktorer för att främja närvaro. För ett fortsatta närvarofrämjande arbete behöver de sociala relationerna mellan framförallt elever och lärare förbättras liksom mellan vårdnadshavare och skola. Arbetet med strategier och bemötande kring sen ankomst och närvaro i klassrummet behöver utvecklas.

Abstract [sv]

En dominerande diskurs om åldrande innehåller föreställningar om individens avtagande funktionsförmåga. I detta kapitel diskuterar vi hur ålder görs i relation till funktionalitet, risk och ansvarstagande och visar hur äldre identifieras som sårbara och antas ha svårare att agera som ansvarstagande medborgare. Med utgångspunkt i samtal med vuxna barn synliggörs konstruktionen av en omarkerad vuxenhet (jfr kap. 1), men också dilemman som uppkommer då det vuxna barnet försöker ta ett vuxenansvar för sin egen förälder.
