Abstract [en]

There is an aspiration and policy within the European Union to fully involve persons with disabilities in the community; this implies an opportunity to gainful employment. A large percentage of disabled persons remain unemployed despite this policy, especially persons with mental health problems. This study aims at investigating how people with mental health problems and caseworkers in different agencies experience the vocational rehabilitation process from an interagency collaboration perspective. The study reveals a number of hindering factors portrayed and discussed in six themes – the time available for rehabilitation, management, new ways of working, absence of an actor, continuity and consensus – and also tables the implications for interagency collaboration in the field of vocational rehabilitation.

Abstract [en]

Erfarenheter av rehabiliteringsprocessen mot ett arbetsliv - brukarens och de professionellas perspektiv. Örebro, Studies from the Swedish Institute of Disability Research No 34, 107 pp.The overall aim of this dissertation is to (1) describe and analyse perceived barriers and opportunities from the perspective of the individual receiving vocational rehabilitation services as a result of unemployment and psychiatric disability (2) describe and analyse perceived barriers and opportunities in services for unemployed people with psychiatric disabilities from the perspective of professionals working in the area of vocational rehabilitation and (3) utilize empowerment theory to explore and develop a deeper understanding of the experiences and perceptions described by these individuals and professionals. The data consists of open-ended interviews with service users and professionals’ working in the area of vocational rehabilitation. A content analysis together with an interpretive approach was used to analyse the data. The results revealed that support and the psychosocial work environment are important factors that influence the rehabilitation process for the individual. These factors can facilitate opportunities to develop skills in contacts with fellow employees, increase belief in one’s own abilities, and can contribute to the achievement of specified goals. These factors are also seen as supporting empowerment and active participation in the rehabilitation process. However, the results also revealed that the rehabilitation process is negatively effected by environmental factors to which the professionals and their organizations contributed. Barriers related to interagency collaboration contributed to barriers to a successful rehabilitation for the individual. The professionals were consistent in what they viewed as enabling factors in the rehabilitation process but the results also showed how difficult it was for the service system to create a rehabilitation context in line with their knowledge and experience.Keywords: Psychiatric disabilities, vocational rehabilitation, empowerment, interagency collaboration, support system.
