"You don´t want to cause a commotion unless you´re really sure" : A qualitative study of the influence of emotions in relation to reporting child maltreatment in pre-school (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna kvalitativa studie har varit att undersöka förskollärares definition av omsorgssvikt, samt om emotioner påverkar att förskollärare gör en anmälan till socialtjänsten gällande omsorgssvikt. Empirin samlades in med kvalitativa intervjuer av fyra förskollärare, som hade erfarenhet av anmälan till socialtjänsten. Intervjuerna analyserades med hjälp av teori om omsorgssvikt, emotioner samt interaktionsritualer. Studien ger inblick och förståelse för förskolepersonalens kunskap och erfarenheter av omsorgssvikt samt om hur emotioner formar relationer mellan de inblandade och kan påverka en anmälan. Resultatet visade att förskollärarnas definition av omsorgssvikt inte består av ett visst antal tecken, utan att de bildar sig en helhetsuppfattning av barnets situation. Studien visar att emotioner kan påverka att en anmälan görs, både genom att förskollärarna tvekar och därmed förlänger processen, men också genom att en anmälan överhuvudtaget inte alls upprättas.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this qualitative study was to study pre-school teachers´ definition of child maltreatment, and the impact of emotions in reporting child maltreatment to the Social Services. The empirical data was collected through qualitative in-depth interviews of four pre-school teachers, who were all experienced in reporting child maltreatment to the Social Services. The interviews were analyzed using emotion theory, theory on child maltreatment and interaction ritual theory. The study provides insight and understanding of their knowledge and experience of child maltreatment, how emotions shape the relationship between the people involved as well as how emotions affect reporting. The result shows that preschool teachers´ definition of child maltreatment is not composed of one or two signs of neglect, but by forming an overall picture of the child's situation. The study also shows that emotions can affect the reporting of child maltreatment both in the sense of actually reporting, as well as hesitating and therefore prolonging the process, but also possibly that the neglect is not reported at all.
