Abstract [en]

This article explores hospital social workers' assessment processes for children at risk within the context of inter-professional teams working in child hospital care in Sweden. Based on qualitative interviews, the study discusses how assessment processes for children at risk can be understood from a professionalism perspective. Three institutionalized norms-juridical, therapeutic, and medical, building on different knowledge systems-are analyzed in relation to the three positions taken by hospital social workers as team members-active, reflective, or passive-leading to different kinds of actions in the assessment processes. The outlined norms and the positions taken involve consequences for the children and their families, but also pose questions for the future professionalization efforts of hospital social work.
