Abstract [en]

Placed in an institution, what happens next? A study concerning how social workers handle the after-care of adolescents who earlier has been placed in an institution is written by Therese Wester and Sanna Sjölander Wirlöf. The purpose of the study is to understand and explain how social workers handle the after-care. This study is based on an organizational perspective since the after-care has been studied in relation to the structure of the organization and the laws and guidelines that the organization has to relate to. The method that has been used is semi-structured interviews with six social workers in different municipalities in Stockholm. The material that has been collected is then processed by coding and thematization. The theoretical framework that has been applied is the organizational theory and street-level bureaucracy, these theories has been used to analyze the results to answer the purpose of the study. The results shows how the structure of the organization, laws and guidelines and also how the community affects the work concerning after-care. The interviews show that the approach regarding after-care is similar between the social workers but the way they work with after-care is different between the communities. This creates different conditions concerning the after-care of the adolescents.
