Abstract [en]

The intension of this study is to investigate the interaction between teachers and social workers in two diffrent countys. The study is focused on how teachers act upon suspicions when there are children at risk and what kind of support the teacher gets from social workers. Another importent question is if the teachers know what kind of rules regarding to confidentiality and if it would be better for the pupils if there were no confidentiality.

To get answers to my questions, i have interviewed teachers and social workers in both countys.

In this study I assume that the power has three dimensions and that there are four levels of interaction.

Due to the law about confidentiality the social worker has the power over the teachers. Because the law about confidentiality it is difficult for teachers and social workers to interact.

If the teacher want help from social services, she or he must call the social worker because the social worker will not call the teacher. If the social worker want to help the teacher and give her advice, the social worker can do that without breaking confidentiality. But it is not all social workers who give advices to teachers.

Teachers do not know much about social service work and social workers must become better at informing teachers about this.
