Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to examine how social workers and pree-school teachers resonate about their experiences of cooperation with each other, in relation to maltreated children and the duty to report. Several studies show that there is a difference between how many children that is suspected of maltreatment and how many that are reported to social service. In Sweden, pre-school staff are obliged to notify the suspicion of child abuse according to 14: 1 SoL, but previous research indicates that the obligation to declare is not used to the extent that it should. One reason for the low notification rate is  the interaction between preschool and the social services shortcomings.Therefore, we believe it is relevant to examine how the cooperation really looks like between the organizations, when the child is being abused or at risk of suffering. The results of the study are based on qualitative semi-structured interviews with four preschool teachers and four administrators. The results show that the cooperation between the organizations needs to be strengthened in relation to maltreated children. However, there are no creative ideas on how this should be done, and there are doubts about whose responsibility it is to achieve an improved cooperation The results are explained and analyzed with neo-institutionell theory, Danemarks theoretical starting point and Lipsky theory of grassroots bureaucrats.
