Abstract [sv]

Praktiskt arbete inom institution innebär kontinuerliga riskbedömningar och beslutsfattande av eventuella åtgärder. Denna studie syftar till att undersöka vilka uppfattningar och resonemang personal vid två särskilda ungdomshem har kring risker och riskbedömning samt vilka beslutsstrategier som tillämpas. Vidare undersöks skillnader i bedömning ur ett genusperspektiv. Kvalitativ metod tillämpas och studien omfattar tolv intervjuer. Resultaten visar att risk och riskbedömning uppfattas som mångdimensionella begrepp omfattandes samtliga aspekter i det dagliga arbetet, dock förekommer interindividuella skillnader utifrån kunskap, erfarenhet och personlighet. Riskfaktorer relateras till våld, risker av både materiell och mänsklig karaktär samt psykisk ohälsa. Genusskillnader urskiljs i uttryckssätt kring flickor och pojkar. Slutligen visar resultaten att beslutsfattande, som huvudsakligen sker genom dialog, konsensus och formellt beslutsfattande, kan påverkas av tankefel.

Abstract [en]

Practical work in institution involves continuous risk assessments and decision making in anticipation of possible actions. This study aims to examine which concepts and reasoning staff, at two treatment centers, employ regarding risks and risk assessments and also which decision strategies are applied. Furthermore, differences in assessment from a gender perspective are also examined. Qualitative method is applied and twelve interviews were conducted. The results show that the subjects of risk and risk assessment are understood as multidimensional concepts which comprise all aspects of daily work. However, differences are found between individuals influenced by knowledge, experience and personality. Risk factors are primarily apportioned in relation to violence, risks of both material and human nature and psychological ill-health. Gender differences are distinguished in mode of expression about girls and boys. Finally, the results show that decision making, which principally takes place through dialogue, consensus and formal decision making, could be affected by biases.
