Abstract

Title: The signification of the traditional gender roles in misuse treatment – the experiences of eight addicts

Author: Andersson Malin, Gunnarsson Annelie

Supervisor: Lindberg Odd

The purpose with this essay is to study if the staff in two LVM treatment facilities do strengthen the traditional gender roles in their daily work and interactions with the clients. The aim was also to study if the staff reconstruct traditional gender roles and if this can be seen as an advantage or disadvantage in the treatment. Finally the aim was to investigate if the staff encouraged the clients to break loose from the traditional gender roles. A qualitative approach using face to face interviews was used. The interview guide was based upon the study’s aim and theoretical frame. Four men and four women between 22 and 60 years were interviewed. The results show that the staff do strengthen traditional gender roles through the activities that is offered to the clients in treatment. Furthermore the male clients did get some encouragement to break loose from traditional gender roles but the women did not. By reconstructing traditional gender roles it makes it easier for the clients to adapt to the norms and values of the conventional society. However there are problems when the staff focuses on gender instead of the clients drug problems in the daily activities in treatment. Another problem is that the staff confirms the structure of society by reconstructing traditional gender roles.
