Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The aim of this study was to examine and analyze the experiences which social workers have of working with relatives of substance abusers. This included examining how they work with relatives who are in need of care and support and how the social workers identify their needs. We have also investigated how well informed the social workers are when it comes to approaches to helping relatives of substance abusers. A qualitative method has been used in this study in order to analyze the experiences of the social workers from a phenomenological point of view. This study was based on six semi-structured interviews. The results indicated that the relatives of substance abusers could receive help from a majority of the agencies but that most of the approaches to helping them were lacking in structure. Another result showed that relatives could not be accepted as clients at a majority of the agencies which presented a difficulty to working with relatives of substance abusers.
