Coping when working with unaccompanied asylum seeking children (English)
Abstract [sv]

Till Sverige kommer dagligen ensamkommande flyktingbarn som söker asyl. Barnen har ofta varit med om svåra upplevelser som påverkat dem svårt med psykisk ohälsa, ångest och oro som följd. Vissa av barnen placeras i familjehem men de flesta placeras på speciella boenden, så kallade HVB-hem. Syftet med denna studie var att ta reda på hur personalen på dessa boenden upplever sitt arbete och vilka copingstrategier de använder. Uppsatsen bygger på fyra intervjuer med personal från olika boenden i Västerbottniska kommuner. Intervjuerna visar på fördelar och nackdelar med arbetet samt vikten av goda copingstrategier och att ta hand om sig själv. Samtliga intervjupersoner beskriver hur träning, samtal med kollegor, handledning och vila är centralt för att de ska orka med och kunna prestera bra på sitt arbete. 

Abstract [en]

Unaccompanied children seeking asylum arrive to Sweden every day. Many of the children have experienced trauma and are sometimes suffering from PTSD, anxiety or other psychiatric symptoms. These children are sometimes being placed in ordinary families but mostly they stay at residential care homes for children and young persons. In this essay we are interested in the staff at these homes. We wanted to find out how they experienced their work and how they coped with difficult situations. Through interviews we talked with four social workers, working at residential care homes in different municipalities in the north of Sweden. During the interviews the staff explained how they felt about their work, both the positive and the negative sides. Further results show that the staff uses coping strategies. They told us that especially exercise, talking to co-workers and rest is essential to do a good work.
