The dilemma in the application of compulsory (English)
Abstract [en]

The overall objective of our research is to understand  how social workers in social services protect the individual's autonomy, integrity and a coercive law which deprives the individual of his rights.

In this study, we bring out social secretaries perspective on how they see the compulsory treatment and the problems that can arise in a detention. This study is based on the questions; How are power between social worker and client? What is the social secretary of the law on compulsory as a tool to help clients?

We interviewed eight social workers who work specifically with compulsory treatment. We used the result to answer our questions. As a theoretical background, we chose to use the power perspective, the concepts of flexibility and freedom of action and categorizations.

The results that emerged from our study are that compulsory treatment is considered to be a positive and negative thing. Social workers believe that the positive of compulsory treatment is that it is a tool to save lives but the downside is that it is forced to use violence.
