Abstract [en]

In this chapter I present my doctoral project and an example analysis of a small part of the research data. The purpose of my doctoral project is to study the construction of professional identity in social authorities’ documents concerning children and to highlight in which ways the professionals handle institutional requirements for the documents. In Sweden these documents are known as Barn- och ungdomsutredningar, and it is estimated that 15–20 per cent of all children in Sweden are the target of these kinds of investigations at some point in their childhood.

In this chapter I conduct a pilot study which can be described as a content analysis of the documents, and the most central concepts for the analysis are macro and micro theme. Two different investigation documents have been included in this pilot analysis and it should not in any way be seen as representative for the whole study’s data. I see the content analysis as a way to give insight into what kind of documents my study deals with. If the content of several documents of the same genre is analysed, this can demonstrate what kind of content is typically included and what information could have been included but is left out in some cases. For my study it can be interesting to see what selection of information social workers, as main participants in a professional discourse, make in different cases and thereby gain insight into what information they consider crucial. I regard this as one aspect of the social workers’ professional identity. The results indicate that investigation documents of this kind can focus on persons of different roles in different cases. In one of the investigations the focus is entirely on the child and the other investigation focuses more on parent. The overall theoretical framework of the study is Critical Discourse Analysis.
