Among the cliental qualities we used in this essay, gender was the most important quality and therefore the quality we wanted to pay special attention to. When it came to the organizational aspects we paid special attention to the social workers boundaries of agency.

The organization in its turn decides which cliental qualities that are important in the municipality and thereby the qualities the social workers are affected by in their choices of assessments.
