dc.description.abstract This Master’s project aims to investigate specific professionals’ experience of collaboration in a Swedish Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) in order to evaluate how cultural aspects affect the various investigative objectives held by the various professionals. Furthermore, the project is investigating how enablers and barriers to the goal of delivering the best practices for vulnerable children. The project embraces a qualitative approach, including interviews with professionals’ that are active in child; - consultations and interrogations at CAC. The project’s analysis is characterized by three themes: legislation in relation to collaboration, collaborative practice and developmental opportunities. As a result, it is apparent that the different professional identities are affected by legal constraints but also cultural factors creating a hierarchy which automatically gives the juridical system precedence. It is expected that the health and welfare system must adapt and prioritize the criminal investigation before developing support measures. Furthermore; the results show a need of closer collaboration between all professionals and common measures of health and social services to achieve the best practices for children. en_US
