Our purpose was to examine how social workers, within the child- and youth psychiatry, works with aggressive children and which theoretical perspectives they use. The questions we wanted to examine were how they worked with these children, how they motivated their work and which theoretical perspectives they used. The method that was used was a qualitative interview, where six social workers were interviewed. The result showed that their work foremost was based on conversation methods and all social workers emphasized the importance of a near cooperation with the parents since they considered that parents had the strongest influence on the children. Some social workers focused foremost on altering children's aggressive behavior while others focused on understanding the meaning of the behavior. All social workers agreed on that many difficulties in the childhood were the biggest risk for developing an aggressive behavior. All social workers used several theories in their work, the most common were psychodynamic, cognitive and behavioristic theory. The result was then analysed by connecting it to earlier research and to our theoretical perspective, social constructivism.
