Abstract [en]

Our purpose with this essay is to examine if social workers tend to assess the clients problems, needs and responsibility for their situation different, depending on if the client is a man or a woman.

The essay is based on interviews with social workers in four communities in the middle of Sweden. We have used a qualitative method. To analyse the material we have used theories and research that explain that gender is always present and that gender is made in our relations with people that we meet and surrounds us. Further on we have used a research summary that describes differences between gender in socialworkers decisions and valuation of the problems of the clients. We have also used research that is based on a vignette which describes a case with a single parent. This is the same case that we later on have used in our study.

In the study we show that there are no differences in the decisions regarding financial support between the sexes. On the other hand we have found differences in other types of support, such as mental health, occupation and children, between the sexes. The social workers in our study tend to support male clients more in these areas than they support female clients.
