Abstract [en]

Within the framework of an ongoing interdisciplinary research study into a Barnahus in Sweden, narratives of 53 social workers and 8 children have been explored. The narratives deal with the question how children can experience to become summoned to Barnahus covering what happens before, during and after a visit to Barnahus. The aim of the study is to develop new knowledge about Barnahus in the perspective of children. The research results indicate deficiencies in considerations of how children experience and understand the processes and procedures in use. In Sweden when a parent is under suspicion, the child becomes summoned without the parents’ consent and knowing. The child is expected to accept to be brought away from school or kindergarten and participate without any preparations and with very little information. In Barnahus the social assessments are said to regularly be done without involving the children. The social workers speak of difficulties in finding orientation for how and when to approach the child. After the police interview, when assessed no need for immediate measures, the child is brought back to school or kindergarten without any special support and further information about what have happened afterwards. In this children are at risk of feeling abandoned by the authorities. Social workers become occupied with the process of supporting and informing the parents. However, when the social worker and the child already know each other or the social worker has accompanied the child to Barnahus, the social worker becomes an important partner for the child.
