The purpose of this paper was to establish what possible set of problems might be associated with three different types of social care available to young people. I chose to study institutionalised care, foster care and home-based intervention. Through interviews with three social workers, my aim was to answer the following questions: - What set of problems related to the teenagers tend to generate a certain type of social care? - What set of problems and possibilities are associated with the three forms of social care? - What dilemmas are social workers faced with when deciding upon a suitable type of social care for youths? - What connotations, related to gender and age, can be drawn from limitations in these forms of social care? It can be concluded that teenagers placed in institutions have problems differing according to gender. Aggressive behaviour, criminal activity and substance abuse are problems associated with teenage boys. Teenage girls are commonly placed in institutions due to suicide attempts, self-destructive acts and substance abuse. In foster care, parents’ (dis)abilities become focused upon, and their lack of care and boundaries increase risk behaviour in their children. There are gender differences. In home-based intervention, relationship difficulties are in a majority. Differences can be seen in girls’ and boys’ behaviour. (Less)
