The empirical studies were processed through the theoretical perspectives power and professionalism. We came to the conclusion that the different types of relationships were of importance for the juvenile, especially the relationship between the juvenile and the caregiver. We also came to the conclusion that the relationships were constituted by dilemmas, especially in terms of professionalism. The power that the caregiver holds over the juvenile appeared to be subtle, yet visible. (Less)
