Abstract [en]

Previous research has shown how the care at the youth institutions is gendered in several ways. The chapter focus on how staff at special approved youth homes constructs the significance of males, in particular males physical bodies, in the staff. Focus is on the links between the presence of physically powerful men and the gender constructions that may be generated, and their relevance for the treatment offered to, above all, the boys. Thirty-nine qualitative interviews have been conducted with treatment staff, working on both single-sex and mixed-sex wards. The subthemes that emerges in the analysis of the staffs views is the male staff’s contribution in both good and bad ways to a laddish atmosphere at the wards, physical conflicts, women as having a soothing effect, and the male body as provocative. The interview participants’ narratives illustrate their ambivalence towards a physically powerful and muscular male body in the treatment staff. It should be noted that both women and men are participants not only in constructing the image of the need for the physically strong man but also in the problematisation of the same. The chapter concludes that in the organization of the care at youth institutions there is a need to be awareness of these issues.
