Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is tounderstand the approach that the staff who works in the aftercare for juvenileoffenders have to the organizational structure in the organization they workin. SiS is the authority which is taking care of the juvenile offenders if theybeen sentence to closed youth institutional care, when they are done it is thesocial service were the adolescent live which is responsible for the aftercare.This is decided by the law since 1999, if a young person between 15 and 17commit a serious crime, they can be sentenced to closed youth institutionalcare. The interest for this study was the aftercare and what possibleparticipant was involved in the aftercare for this young people. By looking upearlier research in the area and doing six different interviews with bothsocial workers, staff on the SiS-institution and an organization for ex convictthe purpose was examines. To analyze the interviews the theory called newinstitutionalism was used. The study shows that aftercare is individual and notall of these young people need aftercare but if it is going to work the firstcondition is that the adolescent him/herself want to have support by socialservice. Another condition is that SiS and social service have a goodcooperation with each other, the adolescent, the family and other importantparticipant. Everything in the care for these young people has to be individualbecause no one is the same, everyone has their own needs and limits. The studyalso shows that the staff has a different approach to the organizationalstructure, depending on which organization they work in and what position theyhave in the organization. The most common approach in this study was that theyhave to do their job to fix these young people, but they always have tostruggle to that fact that it is other people who set the law and the rulesthat they are going work from.
