The theoretical framework in this study is Mertons theory about deviance and Foucaults theory about pastoral power and disciplinary power. The results in this study shows that it was an ambivalence between determinism and voluntarism. Structural factors is interpreted and understood by the social workers in the form of position in society and social workers' working methods. Another reason is the youth's own motivation and the risk of a normalization of social aid and also that the youth lacks adult role models who are working and have their own incomes. The majority of the respondents advocated early efforts and meetings with the youth while they still are in their parents household. In order to inform and guide youth and compensate the living condition. (Less)
