"Barnahus often becomes a pit stop on the way to the police" – A qualitative study on social workers’ experiences of the support given by Barnahus (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka hur socialsekreterare, som arbetar med barn- och ungdomsärenden, upplevde stödet från Barnahus. Socialsekreterare verkar enligt forskning under pressade arbetsförhållanden, vilket kan bidra till sjukskrivningar samt svårigheter att rekrytera och bibehålla personal. Som stöd i den rättsliga hanteringen av arbetet finns bland annat Barnahus; en verksamhet där ett flertal myndigheter samverkar. Målet är att erbjuda ett bemötande anpassat efter behov till de barn som misstänks ha varit utsatta för våldsbrott eller sexuella övergrepp. Mot denna bakgrund, och med KASAM som den teoretiska utgångspunkten, genomfördes sex stycken semistrukturerade intervjuer med socialsekreterare från ett urval kommuner i Mellansverige. Resultatet påvisade att flertalet deltagare upplevde stödet från Barnahus som välfungerande. Dock framkom missnöje riktat mot andra samverkanspartners inom Barnahus, vilket enligt deltagarna behöver åtgärdas för att på ett adekvat sätt kunna möta behoven hos de barn som aktualiseras inom socialtjänsten.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine social worker’s experience of the staff support received from Barnahus. Recent research stated that social workers are suffering due to pressurised working environments, which can lead to difficulties with sick leave and a high staff turnover. Barnahus can be summarized as a place where concerned authorities are interoperating for the benefit of children who have been subject to violence or sexual abuse. They also offer support for social workers concerning the legal handling of said children. The study consists of semi-structured interviews with six social workers from different councils in mid Sweden. KASAM was used as the theoretical frame. Results showed that a majority of the participants were satisfied with the support. However, concerns about other authorities within Barnahus were raised. According to the participants these concerns need to be addressed in order to meet the needs of the children more effectively.
