The population of the study is too small to allow general conclusions to be drawn, however, we have been able to ascertain that families of a different background are over-represented relative to their percentage of Lund´s population. Familjeenheten has no statistical record of ethnicity and the interviewed persons express no certain importance in the families´ cultural origins. They express no need to develop special treatment methods that take the clients´ cultural background in regard as they feel that so many of family issues are universal. However, they say that knowledge of the clients´ culture can improve communications during the treatment. The unit managers say that the goals of all family treatment programs, regardless of the clients´ background, is to make progress with the family with the interests of the child at heart. (Less)
