A suitable foster home : A qualitative study of approved foster care assessements (English)
Abstract [en]

The focus of this thesis is on what is considered to be a suitable foster home. For the study to be carried out an application had to be made to get access to the foster home assessments in a medium-sized municipality in Sweden. With the support of attachment theory and theory of standards different categories have been picked out and analyzed in foster home assessements that have been approved. The conclusion to what is considered to be a suitable foster home is a complex issue, as there are many factors that are interacting. Social workers seem to focus on the importance of a family’s ability to provide some kind of stability and security for a child who is considered to be placed within their home. An important feature that the parents need to show is some kind of potential to form a secure attachment for a child. The foster home may be considered suitable regardless of the foster parents background and current situation as long as the foster child has the potential to form a secure attachment to either of them. In a normative perspectiv the foster parents should have a good and stable relationship and the foster home should be placed close to nature. Another feature that the social workers seem to prefer is to place a child in a foster home where the foster parents are related or somehow closely connected to the child.
