Reporting with Lex Sarah in the individual-and family section in social services- : A qualitative study about how the social worker reasons about report obligations (English)
Abstract [en]

This study is based on a qualitative study with 8 semi-structured interviews. The aim of the

study was to describe how social workers in the individual- and family section in social

services in two different municipalities in Sweden reason about reporting obligations and to

understand what lex Sarah means in the decisions making to report incongruity or not. We

interviewed social workers that work in the department of individual- and family section, a

municipality worker who works with state governance with all kinds people in the society.

We asked the social workers altered questions about how they handle lex Sarah in their work.

Three different topics were identified in our study and became the themes: Description,

management and conflicting thoughts. Our analysis is based on two different theories, one

about the choices a person make being in an organization, the other about how a professional

individual have altered pressures to handle in their everyday work. By doing a semi-structured

study of the social workers opinions, we found out that the description of incongruity was not

the focus just in managing lex Sarah. Results of the study showed that there is several

different aspects to take in considerations when social workers in individual- and family

section in social services decide whether to report or not. The description is one part and their

own individual worries affected them in their decision to report incongruity or not. They all

had faith in lex Sarah and thought it could be used as a tool to make their work better.
