Abstract [sv]

Forskning visar på att hbt-personer (homo-, bi- och transpersoner) ingår i en grupp som har sämre psykosocial hälsa än befolkningen i övrigt. Forskning visar även på att heteronomen i samhället påverkar bemötandet mellan yrkesverksam inom socialt arbete och hbt-personer negativt. Syftet med studien är att undersöka hbt-personers upplevelser av och resonemang kring bemötandet i kontakten med yrkesverksamma inom socialt arbete samt kuratorers upplevelser och resonemang kring bemötandet av hbt-personer. Studien byggs på en kvalitativ ansats varför sex semistrukturerade intervjuer genomfördes utifrån ett hbt- och kuratorsperspektiv, vilket ger studien en bredd gällande resonemang kring bemötande. Resultaten visar att det finns en samstämmighet mellan alla respondenter om vad ett gott bemötande bör innehålla. Det finns dock en skillnad gällande uppfattningen om de yrkesverksammas kunskaper i frågor som rör sexuell läggning, könsidentitet och könsuttryck. Hbt-respondenterna har upplevt brister i kunskapen från de yrkesverksamma som de mött medan kuratorerna uppfattar sin kunskap som tillräcklig men att de vid kunskapsbrister aktivt söker mer information. För socialt arbete kan studien bidra med att öka medvetenheten kring dessa frågor bland yrkesverksamma inom socialt arbete, vilket skulle kunna resultera i att bemötandet av hbt-personer blir bättre.

Abstract [en]

Research shows that LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transsexual) people have a lower level of psychological health than the population in general. Research also show that heteronormativity in society affects the way social workers approach LGBT clients in a negative way. The aim of the study is to investigate both LGBT people's experiences and reasoning about the approach in contact with social workers as well as counselors experiences and discussion on the approach of LGBT people. A qualitative approach is used in the study and six semi-structured interviews were conducted from a LGBT and counselors perspective, this provides the study with a wider angle on the discussion regarding approach. The results show a consensus among all respondents about what a good approach should include. There is however differences in the perception of what knowledge the professionals have about issues related to sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression. LGBT respondents experiences gaps of knowledge from the professionals they met, while counselors perceived their knowledge as adequate, however, when lacking of knowledge they actively search for more information. For social work this study could contribute by raising awareness of these issues among professionals in social work, which could result in better approach of LGBT people.
