The study also shows that the decision-making process can be laborious and a source of great stress for those responsible for the welfare of children and adolescents.
”Strategies for coping with stress, both at the individual and organizational level, should be developed locally and be anchored among individual local government officers and management,” says Arve Lerum.
”Achieving good results for users of these services is an important coping factor.”
Child protection workers can be criticized both for decisions that are taken and not taken.
Arve Lerum has interviewed child protection workers in Danish and Norwegian municipalities and compared the results.
