The analyses were based on two theories, Theory of professions by Tacott Parson and Andrew Abbott and the other about system theory (Öqvist 2003, Schjodt & Egeland 1994). The study shows that there is a need for more clear guidelines and routines and that there is some uncertainty around who has the overall responsibility to report to the social services, the preschool teacher or the manager. There are also some slots in the knowledge of each other professions, between the preschool teachers and the social workers. The study shows that there is a difference between parent cooperatives and public preschools in terms of the relationships between the preschool teachers and the parents which can have an effect on the assessments to report maltreated children to social services. The issues contribute to the fact that only a part of the concern for maltreated children is reported to the social services. (Less)
