Abstract [sv]

Denna tredje upplaga har genomgått en omfattande revidering utifrån ny lagstiftning och aktuell forskning. Den innehåller också ett nyskrivet kapitel om centrala utmaningar för professionella som arbetar med personer med intellektuell funktionsnedsättning. Sedan bokens första upplaga har benämningen av målgruppen ändrats, vilket är motivet till att denna upplaga har fått en ny titel.Valfrihet, egenmakt och individuell frihet är ledord i den svenska välfärdspolitiken.

Att individen själv ska ha rätt att bestämma över sin vardag har inneburit natt man inom funktionshinderpolitiken alltmer har kommit att betona den enskildes möjlighet att påverka villkoren för stöd och hjälpinsatser. Men vad händer när personer med funktionsnedsättningar inte primärt ser sig som behövande av stöd och service, utan baserar sina livsprojekt på helt andra visioner, mål och värden?

Författarna har mångårig erfarenhet av verksamhetsnära arbete och deras forskning är inriktad på de villkor som omgärdar arbetet med personer med intellektuell funktionsnedsättning. I den här boken sätts dessa erfarenheter och villkor in i en bredare samhällelig och välfärdspolitisk kontext. 

Boken vänder sig till studenter vid samhällsvetenskapliga, beteendevetenskapliga och vårdvetenskapliga utbildningar men även till yrkesverksamma inom välfärdssektorn och andra som är intresserade av frågor om intellektuell funktionsnedsättning.

Abstract [en]

This article examines how administrators in social services (n=70) and habilitation staff in healthcare (n=40) in Sweden experience difficult work situations in their daily work with people with intellectual disabilities (ID). The research aim was a) to scrutinize the most typical aspects of difficult working situations and b) to apply a comparative analysis of differences and similarities, where the respondents’ organizational affiliations are taken into account. The results are primarily based on a content analysis, although contextual standardized questions were also included. The results revealed that experiences of difficult work situations were associated with (1) structure, (2) professional role, (3) relationships, and (4) collaboration. The study also demonstrate that the respondents’ experiences of difficulties did not correspond to work dissatisfaction or unclear goals. On the contrary, handling this plurality within a specific organizational context was interpreted as an important aspect of professionalism. We argue that the different characteristics of the organizations reflect two different institutional logics. While the administrators mainly operated within an administrative logic based on a regulatory framework, the habilitation staff operated within a therapeutic logic based on a cognitive framework. The organizations different norms and rule systems, seem to have influenced when, and to what extent, everyday situations were experienced and defined as difficult when working with people with intellectual disabilities. This suggest that organizational context are important to acknowledge in order to understand professional experiences within intellectual disability services.

Abstract [en]

Background. The research aim of this study was to analyse aspects of job satisfaction in daily work with people with intellectual disability (ID) in schools, social services and health care. Method. With a comparative approach, we collected data via a digital questionnaire with in total 333 respondents. The empirical material was analysed through a thematic content analysis. Results. The result showed that perceptions of job satisfaction could be differentiated into five typological categories: (1) the target group; (2) social rewards; (3) social relations; (4) professional core mission; and (5) results and outcomes. The findings also showed apparent differences in responses, both in terms of frequency and content, which seem to be associated with the respondents’ organisational affiliations. Conclusion. This study suggests that differences in experiences seem to be associated with work assignments, professional identities and organisational affiliation.

Abstract [en]

This paper presents an overview of research about support-to-work in relation to psychiatric and intellectual disabilities. The overview shows that support-to-work services are multifaceted, and that work can be seen as a tool for individual rehabilitation or as a set of goals to achieve. Providers are presented with specific components, which are characterised by systematic, targeted, and individualized interventions. The overview illustrate a need of long-term engagement and cooperation of and between welfare services and agents within the labour market to dissolving the Gordian knot that transition from welfare interventions to employment seems to be.

Abstract [en]

People with intellectual disabilities are commonly seen as "nonadult others" and as persons of limited credibility, and this view has implications in a number of areas. In this paper, the empirical findings from an interview study focused on lived experience are analyzed in relation to the intersections of intellectual disability and gender. In light of Fricker's (2007) work on epistemic injustice, and in recognition of Anderson's (2012) emphasis on the importance of transactional and structural injustice, a novel aspect of epistemic injustice is provided: as a consequence of conditioned lived space. The social identity of intellectual disability position persons thus identified to belong to a segregated and marginalized group. Although guided by the ambition to care for and protect this vulnerable group, structural transactions provided by the welfare system run the risk of simultaneously depriving individuals of both the experiences and the hermeneutical resources necessary to interpretatively frame and make sense of their limited situation and lack of possibilities – and thus from interacting epistemically in fruitful ways. A key structural feature of the epistemic injustice towards the group is shown to be a lived experience that to a large extent is conditioned by the constructions of disability and gender.

Epistemische Ungerechtigkeit und bedingte Erfahrung: Der Fall von geistiger Behinderung

Anhand einer Analyse der gelebten Erfahrungen von Menschen mit geistiger Behinderung erschließt dieser Artikel einen neuen Aspekt der epistemischen Ungerechtigkeit: Strukturell in das wohlfahrtsstaatliche System eingebettete Abläufe laufen Gefahr, die betroffenen Individuen sowohl ihrer Erfahrungen als auch der hermeneutischen Ressourcen zu berauben, die sie benötigen würden, um ihre bedingte Situation angemessen interpretieren zu können und um an einem epistemisch fruchtbaren Austausch teilzuhaben.

A partir d'une analyse de l'expérience d'un handicap mental, cet article met à jour un nouvel aspect d'injustice épistémique. La gestion structurelle assurée par la sécurité sociale risque de priver les individus des expériences et des ressources herméneutiques nécessaires pour interpréter et donner du sens à leur situation limitée, et de les empêcher de participer à des interactions épistémiques fructueuses.
