English abstract
The power of the meeting is a qualitative study primarily examining how homeless men and women and social workers experience the meeting between them. The homeless are the more vulnerable part in these meetings so their experience of these meetings is my focus in this study. I have in this paper also examined and analyzed how and whether homeless women and men tends to be treated and ad-dressed differently with basis on their gender. The main results I have found is that the homeless but also social welfare officers actually feel that there is com-municative problems when the parts meet and cooperates which often results in conflicts and lack of trust. I have chosen to highlight a number of factors that have been claimed as the main reasons for the experience of a poor meeting. These factors are the lack of interpersonal encounters, lack of information and also the lack of resources to help and support. I have been able to demonstrate that a difference exists between the social workers treatment and attitude towards homeless men and women based on their gender; women are more prone to be treated as victims, while men are considered sturdier and more self-reliable.
