In a case by case basis : A qualitative study of Social Workers’ perspective on children's participation in assessments (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att öka förståelsen för hur socialsekreterare resonerar kring barns delaktighet vid beslutsprocesser. Undersökningen är kvalitativ och baseras på halvstrukturerade intervjuer som har genomförts med elva socialsekreterare. Samtliga arbetar med barnutredningar i olika kommuner. Studien har en induktiv ansats och har skrivits ur ett socialkonstruktionistiskt perspektiv. Av intervjuerna har en tematisk analys gjorts, där tre teman blev centrala. Det första temat, flexibilitet, handlar om hur socialsekreterarna anpassar sig efter barnet, syftet med mötet och barnets ålder. Det innebär att de måste vara flexibla i hur de informerar och blir informerade. Andra temat, relation, handlar om hur socialsekreterarna ser på relationens betydelse för barns delaktighet. Några socialsekreterare tycker att relationen har en stor betydelse medan andra inte har lagt stor vikt vid det. Det sista temat, påverkansfaktorer, handlar om hur barns möjlighet till delaktighet i utredningar har ökat med tiden och tar upp faktorer som kan påverka. Alla teman handlar om socialsekreterares perspektiv på barns delaktighet och hur det skiljer sig från fall till fall i olika möten med barn.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to increase the understanding of how social workers reason about children's participation in decision-making. The study is qualitative, with, semi-structured interviews being conducted with eleven social workers, in different municipalities, working with children assessments. The study, which has an inductive approach, has been written from a social constructionist perspective. Analysis of the interviews was conducted in the style of a thematic analysis, where three themes were central. The first theme, flexibility, is about how social workers adapt to the child, the purpose of the meeting and the child’s age. This means that they must be flexible in how they inform and be informed. The second theme, relationship, is about how the social workers look at the relationship’s importance to children’s participation. Some social workers believe that the relationship is of great importance, while others haven’t put much emphasis on it. The last theme, influencing factors, is about how children’s opportunity to participate in decision-making has increased over time and factors that may affect. All themes are about social workers perspective on children’s participation and how it differs from case to case in various meetings with children.
