Abstract [en]

The study investigates how social workers looks at theris treatment when they come in contact with young offenders. The intention of this study is to find out how social workers debate about when they respond to young offenders, which treatment style they use and the opportunities but also the difficulties may arise in the meeting. In order to get answers to our questions we chose a qualitative study based on interviews with social workers that all work with young offenders. Seven people were interviewed and all of them are between 26 and 40 years of age. The theoretical starting points for this study were selected based on the Johan Asplunds (2010) theory on social responsivitet and Per Echeverris (2010) response theory on the outside and inside the perspective of the treatment and treatment styles. 

The conclusions we have formed from the interviewees is that the treament is something central and guiding the work for people, but especially with young offenders. Through a good treatment and good cooperation as social worker the opportunity  to be able to influnce young people for a positive behavior pattern. To achieve this, the social worker has different strategies to ensure the good cooperation with the youths. But there are also various obstacles in responding to the interviewees agreed, and that's including lack of time.

We are aware that our study is not possible to generalize over all social workers but, despite that, we have given a more positive image of the responses within the social services and social workers profession. We knew that the treatment was an important part of the social workers but what we did  not know was that the treatment was so governs almost all of the work with youths. We have, thanks to this study received better understanding and knowledge of the social services and social workers work.
