The thesis takes its starting point in conception that teenage boys living with a single mother lack male role models and that this lack is related to some of the boys? The overall aim of the thesis is to analyse and deconstruct the conception lack of male role models within the field of social work.
It combines a quantitative and a qualitative approach and uses three empirical
Manliga forebilder sets to fulfil the aim. The first is an interview study with 11 informants working directly with teenage boys in open forms of social treatment.
The second is a survey using ques-tionnaires directed to key social workers and containing questions both on number of assess-ments, gendered differences, measures taken etc. The third is an analysis of texts published in Socionomen, the most influential journal for social workers in Sweden. The texts studied span over a period of 42 years to The thesis concludes that the conception lack of male role models has a strong hold on social workers both in assessing and in carrying out care for teenage boys.
The conception is under-stood as closely linked to a number of discourses that, in their
Manliga forebilder, cooperate with social prac-tice. Within a Manliga forebilder equality discourse with a strong political rhetoric two different discourses on gender can be seen: This ambivalence raises ques-tions on the role of men in female dominated work places and as role models.
Are they sup-posed to be models in a stereotypical and traditional masculinity construction or models for transgressing stereotypes? The constructions of masculinity are multiple and complex. A man of the body is constructed from components such as courage, discipline, physical activity and a trimmed body. A man of the head is also constructed, consisting of verbality, sensitivity and care. In the constructions of Manliga forebilder two main discourses can be identified: The construction of the lone mothers shows similar complexities and ambivalences.
She is both strong and capable but at the same time morally disreputable and burdened under a dominating mother centred discourse influenced, in its turn, by psychoanalytical thinking. She is seen as lacking in relation to the son. Mothers and fathers are further measured as parents by different gauges. The is often? The discourses presented are interrelated, not least with a discourse where society is viewed as fatherless and where childhood is seen dominated by women.
Manliga forebilder of the wild teenage boy can be seen that leads to demands for discipline and a traditional form of masculinity within practical social work. But alternatives can also be seen and the ambivalences, competition and movements between discourses open a dynamic field.
The thesis analyses these movements, different posi-tions and competitions, within both discourses and social practice. Visa bara avhandlingar i fulltext.
