Abstract [sv]

Socialtjänsten i Sverige har blivit alltmer specialiserad, vilket har lett till att klienter med komplexa behov är aktuella på olika organisatoriska enheter och har kontakt med flera socialsekreterare samtidigt. Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka förekomsten av parallella kontakter inom socialtjänsten och hur det hade förändrats över tid. Undersökningen antog en kvantitativ ansats och utgick från statistiskt material hämtat från en IFO-organisation i en större svensk stad. Materialet visade att andelen klienter med parallella kontakter hade ökat med en tredjedel på de fyra undersökta enheterna mellan 2014 och 2018 och att vissa klientgrupper uppvisade parallella kontakter i större utsträckning än andra grupper. Diskussionen behandlade klienters komplexa behov, fragmentisering och socialarbetares överlappande arbete för klienter med parallella kontakter.

Abstract [en]

Swedish social services have become increasingly specialized, with the result that clients with complex needs are in contact with several organizational units and social workers simultaneously. The purpose of the present study was to examine the degree to which such parallel contacts occur within social services and how their incidence has changed over time. We have employed a quantitative method and drawn on statistical material collected from a personal social services organization in a large Swedish town. The material revealed that the extent to which parallel contacts occurred had increased by a third between 2014 and 2018 among clients at the four units that were chosen for the study, while certain client groups had a greater incidence of parallel contacts than other groups. In a concluding section of the study we discussed clients’ complex needs, fragmentation and the overlapping responsibilities of social workers with regard to clients with parallel contacts.
