ABSTRACT

This study aims to examine how womens illict drug use appears in different ethnic groups. The chosen perspectiv is social constructivism. The study is based on 20 scientific studies: 17 from Northern America, two from Great Britain and one from Sweden. Central themes from the studies have been created from different subject viewpoints. The results of this study shows that women have different needs when treatment is required. In addition prevention must consider specific gender and ethnic issues. The patterns of use are different between ethnic groups. Important aspects to consider, besides ethnicity, in research as well as in social work practices are acculturation, heterogenity, cultural heritage and gender stucture. The role of scientific creations of ethnic catergorisations and definitions of illicit drug use are discussed. As a result of our study, the need for cultural competence and cultural sensitivity in social work has been pointed out.

Kvinnor, etnicitet och illegalt narkotikabruk

En litteraturstudie

Författare: Cecilia Eriksson och Hanna Rapp Andersson

Handledare: Odd Lindberg

Sammanfattning

Syftet med denna uppsats är att utifrån en litteraturstudie granska hur kvinnors illegala narkotikabruk gestaltar sig i olika etniska grupper. Granskningen görs utifrån ett socialkonstruktivistiskt perspektiv. Uppsatsens underlag utgörs av 20 vetenskapliga arbeten varav 17 är amerikanska, två brittiska och ett är svenskt. I uppsatsen redovisas centrala teman med utgångspunkt i materialets karaktär. Resultatet visar att kvinnors behov i behandling och prevention, användningsmönster samt prevalens skiljer sig inom och mellan etniska grupper. Viktiga faktorer att ta hänsyn till, utöver etnicitet, vid såväl forskning som det sociala arbetets praktik är ackulturation, heterogenitet, kulturell tillhörighet och genusstrukturer. Resonemang förs kring forskarens roll vid konstruktionen av etniska grupper samt definitioner av illegalt narkotikabruk. Utifrån studiens resultat lyfts behovet av kulturkompetens och kultursensivitet i socialt arbete fram.

Nyckelord: missbruk, etnicitet, genus, kultur, ackulturation, skuld, skam socialkonstruktivism, litteraturstudie, illegalt drogbruk
