    Abstract [en]

    The social work taking place in child protection is quite complex. The research that exists in today's scholarly literature mainly describes the most comprehensive efforts; taking children into custody and child placement. We have discovered a lack of research about the factors that have an affect on assessments and decision-making. The purpose of this study is therefore to study the meaning of use of self in social work, also to increase the understanding about how subjective knowledge acts in the assessment and decision-making processes. With that information place the subjective knowledge within a professional setting. To fulfill this purpose the authors used a qualitative vignette complemented with semi- structured interviews, and from those findings analysed the stories of the seven interviewees whilst relating them to Weber´s theory about ideal bureaucracy, Hasenfeld´s human service organizational theory, Lipsky´s theory on street-level bureaucracy and Lundquist´s theory about autonomy. The result show that social workers have great room for discretion in their work with child protection, also that they to a large extent utilise their intuition and past experiences. How a social worker is as a person has a big impact on how they choose to use their room for discretion. The result also show that social workers with more experience are more likely to lean on their subjective knowledge at work than a social worker with less experience. Our comprehension is that the self is an important tool when working with child protection, and that it corresponds to the built-in complexity present in the work. However, the importance of reflecting this knowledge should be emphasized.
