Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine what approach schools and social services adopt

towards students who are absent from middle- and high school under long periods, to examine

the distribution of responsibilities between them and to assess the collaboration between the

agencies. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with five personnel from school health

teams, and one from social services. The theories that were used was systems theory, labelling

theory and empowerment. We found that both schools and social services provided

counselling opportunities and sought to establish communication between the student and

parent(s). However, while part of the schools response was to adjust the schooling plan, social

services focused on mapping the individual

’s network and presented alternatives such as

temporary foster placement. The cooperation between schools and social services is perceived

differently between respondents. We conclude that a working method is needed to facilitate

cooperation between schools and social services to ensure efficient deployment of their

assistance for students and parents.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att

undersöka vilka insatser som görs från skolans och

socialtjänstens

sida när det gäller arbetet med hemmasittande elever i årskurs 7-9, samt

ansvarsfördelningen

dem emellan. Syftet var även att undersöka hur skola och socialtjänst

samverkar. Den metod som

användes var semistrukturerade intervjuer, fem med personal ur

skolans

elevhälsoteam och en med socialtjänsten. De teorier som användes var systemteori,

stämplingsteori

och empowerment. Vi har funnit att skola och socialtjänst erbjuder

samtalsstöd

och eftersträvar en god kommunikation mellan elev och föräldrar. Från skolans

sida var det viktigt att

påbörja insatserna tidigt, följa upp all skolfrånvaro och att anpassa

skolgången. Socialtjänstens

insatser var kartläggning av individens nätverk och orsaker till

hemmasittandet, samt erbjuda insatser som exempelvis hemterapeut, kontaktperson och

familjehem. Hur skola och

socialtjänst samverkar upplevdes olika mellan respondenterna. Vår

slutsats var att det

behövs en arbetsmetod, där skola och socialtjänst kan samverka och som

möjliggör snabba insatser för både elev och föräldrar.
