Knowledge review about treatment methods in youth welfare. : A comparative study of three methods. (English)
The aim of this study is to describe and analyse the knowledge of three of the treatment methods used in youth welfare and this is accomplished through a knowledge review. This study contains an analysis of three different treatment methods described in eleven different peer reviewed articles. The articles are all internationally published between the years 2006 to 2012 and they are all effectiveness evaluations. The articles deal with treatment methods concerning Motivational interviewing (MI), Aggression Replacement Training (ART) and Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and these are three of the most common in youth welfare in Sweden. There is not much knowledge of Swedish conditions and that is why this study focuses on international research. The theoretical focus we use to analyse the results is approaches about knowledge. The earlier research used in this study is four meta-analyses on MI and CBT, none were found on ART. During this study we found that there is not much earlier research of effectiveness evaluations on these three treatment methods for adolescents. We also found that the effects shown in the articles were not as big as we expected and some of the studies may be difficult to use in practical social work in Sweden.
