Objectives

Early parental support, provided by nurses within child health services, aims to strengthen parents in their parenthood. The aim of this integrative review is to describe communication in parental support in encounters between child health nurses and parents in child health services.

Methods

An integrative review was conducted. The databases Cinahl+ , MedLine, Psych Info, and Scopus were searched, 312 articles were screened, and 16 articles were found to be eligible.

Results

The studies included qualitative and quantitative methods, using interviews, focus group interviews, and observations. The findings show an overarching theme: The significance of mutuality in communication in a professional-parental relationship, further described in the following categories, 1) Authoritarian approach: a controlling manner, a neglecting manner, and a teaching manner; 2. Guiding approach: a counselling manner and a compliant manner.

Conclusions

The communication between nurses and parents can be understood as having several layers; the organisational context, the professional skills, knowledge, and experiences, and parents’ knowledge, expectations, and needs. There is a lack of studies of authentic communication between nurses and parents; thus, future research is warranted.

Practice implications:

The authoritarian and guiding approaches in parental support show the required skills a nurse is expected to have, but sufficient organizational prerequisites are also crucial.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the article is to describe and problematise the practice-initiated idea of developing a digital tool for children in child welfare investigations and whether and how this welfare technology is useful for social workers. The results include interview data and descriptions of the research process. The social workers are of the opinion that the digital application increases the possibilities for children’s participation in child investigations, even though their main focus is to create an alliance with the parents. During the research process the digital tool has developed from an empirical idea to a conversation tool and been tested with different user groups. However, the law on procurement limits the possibilities for data storage if the digital tool is to be used in the future. In sum, in order to develop child protection work further, more practice-based research needs to be conducted so that researchers can develop the practice’s ideas and identify the obstacles, opportunities, organisational conditions and development needs. The social workers in this study believe that the digital tool is useful for accessing children's perspectives and experiences, even though relational work with children is not their main task in child welfare investigations.

Abstract [en]

The COVID-19 pandemic has dominated the global media since 2020. To a large extent, it isvia the news media that the public has learned about the risks, levels of danger, governmentalregulations and mandatory actions. This article highlights the subject positions constructedby the Swedish news media from January 2020 to February 2021 in reports about thepandemic. The result shows that citizens can be active-passive or solitary solidarity, thesepositions appeal to individual accountability, thus potentially shaping and fostering citizensin line with the Swedish government’s wider response to the pandemic. The news media’simages are of self-regulated citizens who govern and discipline themselves and othersaccording to the current discourses, all of which simultaneously evoke fear, togethernessand hope. The ideological dilemmas for citizens are whether to be active-passive or, ifnecessary, switch to the solitary solidarity subject position.

Abstract [en]

How do children (aged 6-12 years) understand and make use of a digital tool that is under development? This article builds on an ongoing interdisciplinary research project in which children, social workers (the inventers of this social innovation) and researchers together develop an interactive digital tool (application) to strengthen children's participation during the planning and process of welfare assessments. Departing from social constructionism, and using a discursive narrative approach with visual ethnography, the aim of the article is to display how the children co-construct the application and contribute with "stories of life situations" by drawing themselves as characters and the places they frequent. The findings show that the children improved the application by suggesting more affordances so that they could better create themselves/others, by discovering bugs, and by showing how it could appeal to children of various ages. The application helped the children to start communicating and bonding when creating themselves in detail, drawing places/characters and describing events associated with them, and sharing small life stories. The application can help children and social workers to connect and facilitate children's participation by allowing them to focus on their own perspectives when drawing and sharing stories.

Abstract [sv]

I denna studie identifieras vilka diskurser som dominerat talutrymmet i svensk nyhetsmedia när det gäller pandemin och vaccinering. Data från Mediaarkivet analyserades utifrån hur språket används för att forma diskurser och samhällets medborgare. Nyhetsmedia använder retoriska resurser som väcker känslor; rädsla, solidaritet och ansvar. De identifierande diskurserna; Kriget mot världens osynliga fiende, I solidaritetens namn, I förnuftets kölvatten och Mot en ny värld? innehåller även metaforer som retoriska resurser med en dominans av krigsmetaforer. De medborgare som hävdar att de kan tänka och agera förnuftigt på egen hand, utan att styras av rädsla och rådande diskurser, framställs som obildade och egoistiska och får sällan talutrymme inom traditionell nyhetsmedia. De oönskade rösterna tystas och förpassas till alternativa kanaler och plattformar med allvarliga konsekvenser för åsiktsfrihet och det demokratiska samtalet i samhället.
