The aim of this essay was to investigate how social workers, within chosen Social services districts in the northwest of Skåne, work with children placed in foster care. Our purpose was to investigate the interaction between the child and the foster home from the perspective of the Ecology of Human Development. Our questions were:

* How do the social worker prepare the child and the foster home before a placement?

* What kind of support is offered to the foster home with the purpose of supporting the child?

* How do the social worker make the childs contact with the biological parents easier?

* To what degree does the social worker work on strengthening the child's network?

* Which factors do the social worker decide the allocation of support?

* What do the social worker think affects the work with the foster home from a society level?

To answer our question we have interviewed nine social workers. We found that the social workers were generally good at perceiving how the micro- and meso-systems, and to a certain extent the exo-system, influenced the foster child. We concluded that the social workers felt some despair for how little influence the child has above the laws in the macro-systems. (Less)
