Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The aim of this study was to look into why children receive the interventions contact person and contact family. This was done by studying case-files. The main questions were:
- How common is it that there are reasons for the intervention linked to parents and which are the most common?
- How common is it that there are reasons for the intervention and problems linked to children and which are the most common?
- Is there any indication of connections between reasons, age, gender or type of intervention? If so, what are the connections?
The main results of this study were that most of the children lived with a single mother, often with a weak social network, and in need of relief. It was more common that reasons were linked to children then parents and the most common reasons indicated a need for an extra adult. The most frequent problem related to children were externalizing behavior. Connections among children were found between; externalizing behavior and gender; age and type of intervention; amount of problems, age and type of intervention.
