Abstract [en]

This study aims to examine how social workers, in the Swedish social services, perceive and interpret LVU § 3 from a gender perspective. In total eight social workers participated in the study, attending interviews based on a vignette. From a gender perspective we wanted to found out how the social workers define "other socially destructive behaviour" and understand their thoughts about this subject. Moreover, we aimed to see if social workers perceive any differences between boys and girls behaviour. Based on several theories, two gender theories and concepts we have analysed our result from the interviews. The study has shown that the social workers seems to find "other socially destructive behaviour" in the LVU § 3 difficult to use. Through the result from the vignette, it has also shown that the social workers seemed to perceive more risks for girls to be sexually abused than boys in the same situation. The fear they see with boys in the same situation is that they will start using drugs.
