In this project, we will define the importance of the knowledge of ethical responsibility in cases regarding placements in the matching process. We will illuminate the frequency of breakdowns in placements and want to make specific action guidelines to counteract the breakdowns. Our focus is from a performer perspective and will refer to the work of the authorities.
Furthermore, we will compare the ethical responsibility to the Danish word: Behandlerblik (common treatment perspective), and illuminate the coherence between the two keywords. We are occupied with the motivation of determining development opportunities regarding the problem statement. Our project will make the foundation for our study and we will be able to make action guidelines in our own practice and inspire placements.
By combining theory and practice in a joint analysis of the problem, we will suggest possible improvements and future and current actions. We will illuminate the knowledge of exercise of discretion after an approved legal basis handed in by the project group and exclude deficient considerations in the matching process of vulnerable children and young people.
Finally, we will conclude and go through the entire process. Also, being reflective and examine what we could have done differently. We see this as an important reflection tool to be aware of criticism of the project.
Overall, it can be concluded from the entire project that there is a significant problem because of the fact that there are no major or more legal requirements for the matching process, seen from a performer perspective. Through the tasks from the legal basis, it has been illustrated and described how few requirements have been set when a placement is going to be selected in accordance with section 68b of the Act on Social Services for the child or young person. It can be concluded in the dissertation that the informants who handle the matching processes do not experience the involvement that must legally take place, cf. Appendices 10 and 11.
With the problem statement formulation in mind, we can conclude that the development opportunities should be in a concrete template on which it was stated which considerations are important for the authorities to focus on, so that we can be sure that the matching process creates a common treatment perspective in the development task that is at the placements.
