Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to identify and make attitudes among social workers towards homosexual and bisexual people visible, examine how these attitudes relate to their actions in their professional role and how these attitudes and actions can be understood by theories of heteronormativity and power. The study is a cross-sectional quantitative survey in the form of a questionnaire completed by social workers. The result shows that there are two groups among the social workers. One larger group that reproduces a norm of acceptance toward homosexual and bisexual people and one smaller that reproduces a heterosexual norm. This reproduction of heteronormativity increases the risk for homosexual and bisexual people to be made invisible and treated more negatively in contact with social workers, which in turn can lead to worse health among the clients.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien är att identifiera och synliggöra vilka attityder socialarbetare har gentemot homo- och bisexuella personer, undersöka hur dessa attityder relaterar till deras handlingar i yrkesrollen samt hur både attityderna och handlingarna kan förstås utifrån teorier om heteronormativitet och makt. Undersökningen är en kvantitativ tvärsnittsstudie i form av en enkät besvarad av socialarbetare inom socialtjänsten. Resultatet visar att det finns två grupper bland respondenterna, en större grupp som reproducerar en norm av acceptans gentemot homo- och bisexuella personer, samt en mindre grupp som reproducerar heterosexualitet som norm. Denna reproduktion av heteronormativitet ökar risken för att homo- och bisexuella personer blir osynliggjorda och sämre bemötta i kontakten med socialarbetare, vilket i sin tur kan leda till en sämre hälsa bland klienterna.
