Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to examine how social workers work regarding questions dealing with the sexual behaviors amongst adolescents. The research questions used were: “What are the social workers concerns regarding sexual behaviors amongst adolescents?” and “what actions are taken with the result from their concern about the sexual behaviors amongst ado-lescents?”. Five semi structured qualitative interviews were conducted. The tool used to ana-lyze the results was “Franzén’s Triangle of Power” (direct translation). The most important results were that specific sexual behaviors did not seem to create concern, instead it was the context in which the sexual behavior occurred. Reasons for concern often had something to do with a belief that there was a power imbalance between the adolescent and his or her sexual partner/s, that the sexual behavior was an indication of other problems and that the sexual behavior could lead to problems in the future. The concern differed according to the sex of the adolescent. The most common action taken was talking to the adolescent.
