Vulnerable children in preschool : Teachers experience and knowledge of helping children in abusive families, to a good self-esteem (English)
Abstract [en]


The purpose of my study is to examine the experiences and opportunities to support teachers in preschool to help children in vulnerable environments, a good self-esteem. Hindberg (1999) writes that of all children today are growing up in Sweden, so ten percent live in families where there is abuse. According Pousette (2011) as the National Public Health Institute has a new appreciation for families where there is hazardous and this means that drinking or abused so much that it can become an addiction. They appreciate the investigation that twenty percent of all children in Sweden are growing up in these conditions.

The results show that teachers' work is about building a sense of security in the children, both the teacher and the environment. It also shows that teachers believe that it is important to work with the self-esteem of all children, but especially children living in abusive families. My interviews show that all the teachers are not given the same opportunities for education on the issue of children of addicts, but everyone knows or believes that they would be jacking in work with children who are vulnerable. Through my study, I have learnt there are places where coordinated social services, special education teachers, doctors and police officers working under the same roof to help children who are vulnerable situations. The study also show that all teachers know they have notifications when a child is mistreated, but it would be good if the question is raised further so that those educators who feel insecure in to report a chance to learn more.
