Short description

The dissertation concerns front-line practice in social child and youth care, where reports of concern for children and young people are received and handled.
I want to seek knowledge about how social workers, in the initial phase called preliminary assessments, go about identifying children and young people who are at risk and need support from society . The study has an ethnographic approach and is planned to be completed in the autumn of 2023.
