Difficulties with quality assurance in the privatised Swedish family counselling (English)
The purpose of this article is to examine issues concerning quality assurance in the Swedish family counselling. To obtain the purpose following factors have been analysed: what kind of requirements/criteria are put on the companies/practitioners, what the respondents think about the lack of common standards and criteria and their opinions concerning “Lagen om valfrihetssystemet”. Monitoring of criteria, privatisation and increased competition are other factors that have been analyzed. The material was obtained from the family counsellors own association and was analyzed in the light of previous research and theories regarding the quality of family counselling however we also considered theories about quality within social work in general. To get the practitioners' opinions we did a qualitative study with five semi-structured interviews. We constructed an analysis from the material and interviews where the answers and the retrieved data were linked together. The results show that family counsellors wanted common quality standards, local authorities should be better at checking the family counsellors and that privatisation has given unserious practitioners access to the market.
Artikeln syftar till att undersöka kvalitetssäkringsproblematiken i den svenska familjerådgivningen. Vi har sett till tidigare forskning samt gjort en kvalitativ studie med yrkesverksamma.
