1. Lybell, Ann. En skola för alla? : Skolans och socialtjänstens hjälp till hemmasittare sett ur ett föräldraperspektiv.

Degree: Social Work and Psychology, 2017, University of Gävle

The aim of this study was to examine how parents of children who refuse school experience the treatment they received from the school and from social services in regards to their situation, and what they believe that social services can improve in their work with these families. The study was conducted by qualitative phone interviews with six mothers of children with school refusal behavior. The main results show that the mothers were displeased with the help and treatment the school provided, but overall pleased with the help from social services although they also described room for improvements. The respondents also expressed that they had to struggle to receive help and had to make a lot of efforts themselves. Several suggestions for improvements for social services were mentioned, especially that more knowledge about school refusal and neuropsychiatric disabilities is needed in social services, and that collaboration between schools and social services should be improved.

Syftet med studien var att undersöka hur föräldrar med s.k. hemmasittande barn, det vill säga som varit frånvarande från skolan utan synbar orsak i minst tre veckor, upplever skolans och socialtjänstens agerande gentemot dem samt vad de anser att socialtjänsten eventuellt kan förbättra i arbetet med dessa familjer. Telefonintervjuer med sex mödrar till hemmasittare genomfördes. Resultaten visade på ett missnöje med skolans bemötande och hjälp medan man överlag var nöjda med socialtjänstens bemötande och hjälp även om de ansåg att det fanns utrymme för förbättringar. Ett annat starkt tema var att man ofta upplevde att deras barn inte togs på allvar utan föräldrarna fick kämpa för att få hjälp och lägga ner mycket arbete själva. Flera förbättringar för socialtjänstens arbete föreslogs, främst nämndes att mer kunskap om hemmasittare och neuropsykiatriska funktionsnedsättningar behövs samt att deras samverkan med skolan behöver förbättras.

2. Joseph, Alice. A study of elementary school children at risk for truancy: exploring gender differences, services offered, and other factors related to truancy.

Degree: MSW, Social Work, 2008, Louisiana State University

This cross sectional, exploratory study examined the characteristics of elementary school children at risk for truancy. Furthermore, the study explored if there were any significant gender differences in the number of children referred to the TASC program. The current study also sought to answer if there were any gender differences in common problem areas reported to have an impact on truancy. Finally, any differences between children identified as low risk and high risk were also investigated. This study used secondary data analysis. Elementary school children (N = 23,459), grades Kindergarten through 4th grade who participated in the TASC program of Louisiana from the years 2002 to 2007, were included in the study. The Risk Indicator Survey I and the Global Assessment tool were used as a means of identifying the common problem areas that are affecting children in the TASC program. The results of the study revealed that there were no significant differences quantity of males and females referred to the TASC program. No significant differences were observed between males and females in regards to each category of risk factors or characteristics listed on the Risk Indicator Survey I. Furthermore, the study illustrated that there were no significant difference between males and females in the type of problem area that is affecting their truancy. However, a considerable number of children were reported to have behavioral problems and educational issues affecting their truancy. Significant gender differences were found between children identified as low risk versus high risk in the TASC program. Also, children’s characteristics were significantly related to the risk status. School social workers can positively impact truancy by identifying students at risk for truancy and linking at risk children with appropriate interventions.

Subjects/Keywords: school absenteeism; early intervention; school refusal behavior; delinquency; truancy; TASC program
