Abstract [en]

This study aims to describe the psychosocial strengths and challenges related to work among persons with intellectual disabilities. The instrument used for this purpose was the Swedish version of the Worker Role Interview. Thirty people with moderate to mild intellectual disability participated in the study. The findings indicate that the participants have many psychosocial strengths that positively affect their worker role. For most of the participants, work is a highly valued life domain and something to which they feel a commitment. It is also shown that the participants have well-developed work habits and a supportive social environment. The main problem area for some participants was in the area of personal causation. Overall, MOHO and the WRI provided useful concepts and a practical method of assessment for understanding strengths and challenges in persons with intellectual disabilities related to work.
