To get the pupil to return to school

- A qualitative study of social workers and educators' experiences of their work with long-term school absence

Previous research on long-term school absence has identified a number of risk and protection factors that affect pupils’ school absence. The purpose of the study was to investigate social workers’ and educators' perception of long-term invalid school absence and the extent to which known factors are used in an overall perspective in their work against and in their collaboration. The research questions concerned in what way professionals use known factors of influence in an overall perspective in the work against long-term invalid school absence and how social workers and educators cooperate with others in the work against long-term invalid school absence. The empirical material of the study was collected through two focus group interviews with social workers and teachers. System theory and organizational theory was used to analyze the results of the study. The result showed that a central part of the professional's work is to map the pupil's problems, which often consists of a complex problem that involves several factors. Collaboration with other professionals in working with the pupil is also described as necessary in order for efforts to be made against long-term invalid school absence.

Abstract [sv]

Tidigare forskning om långvarig ogiltig skolfrånvaro har identifierat ett flertal risk- och skyddsfaktorer som påverkar elevens skolfrånvaro. Syftet var att studera socionomers och pedagogers uppfattning om och i vilken utsträckning kända påverkansfaktorer tillvaratas för att beakta ett helhetsperspektiv i arbetet med att motverka långvarig ogiltig skolfrånvaro samt vilka aspekter av samverkan som finns. Studien har haft två frågeställningar; på vilket sätt upplever professionella att kända påverkansfaktorer tas tillvara för att beakta ett helhetsperspektiv i arbetet med att motverka långvarig ogiltig skolfrånvaro samt vilka aspekter av samverkan socionomer och pedagoger som finns i arbetet med att motverka långvarig ogiltig skolfrånvaro. Materialet samlades in genom fokusgruppsintervjuer och systemteori och organisationsteori har använts för att analysera resultatet. Resultatet visade att en central del i de professionellas arbete är att kartlägga elevens problematik, vilket ofta består av en sammansatt problembild där flera faktorer spelar in. Även samverkan med andra parter som arbetar med eleven beskrivs som nödvändigt för att insatser mot långvarig ogiltig skolfrånvaro ska bli verksamma.
