Abstract [en]

The number of prisoners in Sweden categorized as drug abusers have increased substantially in the last 20 years according to the Swedish Prison and Probation Service (SPPS). Drug abusers are defined by SPPS as those who have used illicit drugs during the previous 12 months (Ekbom et al. 2006). In 1970 about 20 % of the prisoners could be classified as drug abusers, while they made up 28 % of the prison population in 1997 (Amilon and Edstedt 1998). In 2010 the number of prisoners with drug problems had risen to 60 % (Ekbom et al. 2011). One reason for this increase may be the sentencing policy.

Abstract [en]

Increasingly, prison drug treatment is introduced in European prisons. This increase may begin to change the prison as officers and drug counsellors are given new occupational responsibilities. Based on six month of observational studies and qualitative interviews with 104 prison employees in Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway in 12 prisons, this article investigates the practices and values of drug counsellors and officers. This shows that increasingly, counsellors integrate the control and disciplinary sanctions of the prison environment into their treatment approach. Simultaneously, officers working in drug treatment wings highlight the importance of the treatment ethos in their control work, adjusting the social representations of their professional identities accordingly. We discuss whether the concepts of treatment and control should be rethought.

Abstract [en]

Over tha past 10 years drug treatment programmes have been exstensivly developed in Swedish prisons. Thsi article highlights how prison officers working in treatment wings think and act in relation to their professional role, their relations to the prisoners and the organisation of drug treatment within the prison.  Data consists of interviews and observations from three Swedish prisons in different security categories. The study examines the significance of secdurity categorie, overall prison-staff culture, treatment wing culture, inmate gender and the treatment role and officers work identity in the treatment wings. The ways in which prison officers think and act depends on how their professional roles are defined at the different prisons. Definitins differ in regard to views on addiction, preferences fo the ways in which treatment should be performed and organized and ideas about how ideal levels of staff-prisoner interaction are best accomplished within the treatment context.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien är att undersöka elevers utvecklingsvägar när det gäller upplevd utsatthet för mobbning samt att undersöka hur dessa olika utvecklingsvägar är relaterade till elevers upplevda sociala stöd från lärare och klasskamrater. En longitudinell design tillämpades där 3349 svenska elever i årskursena fyra till nio, besvarade en enkät vid två olika tillfällen, separerat med ett år. Fyra olika grupper kunde identifieras inom datamaterialet (1) ej utsatta elever, elever som inte var utsatta för mobbning vid något av mättillfällena, (2) undkomna offer, elever vars situation förändrades till det bättre, (3) nya offer, elever vars situation försämrades samt (4) fortsatt utsatta elever, elever som var utsatta för mobbning under hela mätperioden. Barn som aldrig varit utsatta för mobbning rapporterade de högsta nivåerna av upplevt socialt stöd från lärare såväl som klasskamrater vid mätning två. Gällande socialt stöd från klasskamrater hade undkomna offer högre nivåer än såväl nya som fortsatt utsatta elever. De nådde dock inte upp till samma nivå som de elever som aldrig varit utsatta för mobbning under mät­perioden. När det gäller lärarstöd fanns dock inga signifikanta skillnader mellan de elever som undkommit mobbning, nya offer eller fortsatt utsatta elever.

Abstract [en]

This study examines a hot spot policing intervention where private security guards patrolled a specific area in the city centre of a mid-sized Swedish town during summer weekend evenings and nights, aiming to reduce the number of reported street violence incidents. A follow-up of the intervention, using previous years as a control was conducted to measure changes in the number of street violence rates before and during the intervention. The results show non-significant decreases in the number of reported street violence incidents during the intervention. The results can be interpreted in at least two ways: that the intervention had no effects; or that the small, but non-significant decreases observed, are indeed small effects that can be strengthened by modifying the implementation of the intervention. An additional analysis shows that the changes in crime rates are larger at times when the guards adapted a stricter hot spot policing approach, which indicates that with a more structured implementation of the intervention it might be possible to see larger effects.

Abstract [en]

Prison-based drug treatment (PDT) has increased markedly in the Nordic countries over the last 15 years. Based on data from Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden, we outline the historical development of PDT and analyse the rationales employed in the political discourse in the Nordic countries legitimizing this development. These rationales relate to the reduction of criminality zero tolerance, rights and the modern welfare state, and managerialism. Though these rationales may appear dissimilar, they have been combined with relative ease in the political discourse. Actually, this elasticity may partly explain the popularity of PDT. We discuss whether the increased use of PDT reflects a criminalization of social problems and signals a rebirth of the treatment ideology in Nordic prisons.

Abstract [en]

The aim of the presentation is to analyze prisoners’ experiences of being involved in treatment programs in prison. Are there differences in the climate in a regular wing and a treatment wing? How do the prisoners describe their interactions with other prisoners in the wing and prison officers and therapists? How do the prisoners’ experience the conflict between control and rehabilitation in a treatment wing? The data consists of 20 face to face interviews with male and female prisoners in three Swedish prison security category 1 and 2. The prisoners age ranged from 23 to 45 years and their sentence ranged from 2 years to life in prison (minimum 18 years). The results show that the cultures in the treatment wings were different deepening on security category and how the treatment was organized. In two prisons the drug treatment program was run by a 12- step therapist (AA/NA) and the prison officers working in the wing were involved in the treatment. In one prison the prison officers in the wing were not involved in the treatment. The drug treatment program was based on cognitive behavioral theory and run by specially trained prison officers. The prisoners’ interactions with the prison officers were also different in the prisons depending of what kind of rituals the prisoners and staff were involved in. We can also see that the prisoners’ roles and interactions with staff are much more hostile in regular wings than in treatment wings. This can also be explained by the rituals that prisoners and staff are involved in the two types of wings. Concerning the control acts like visitations and urine samples in the treatment wings the prisoners get somewhat frustrated but at the same time they see these acts as positive to prevent drugs coming into the wing.
