Abstract (Summary)
The purpose of this study was to gain an understanding of the structured and evidence-based assessment tool/method The Brief Child and Family Phone Interview (BCFPI) trough a social psychology perspective of conversation. The aim was especially to seek an understanding of the method considering aspects of children’s participation. The research question was: how do the method users apprehend the advantages and the limitations of the BCFPI method considering aspects of children’s participation. The study was carried out trough a qualitative analyze and sex respondents in two child psychiatry clinics in Sweden were interviewed. A symbolic interactionistic perspective were used to analyze the results. The results showed that it was mostly advantages that were discussed and only a few limitations were presented. No reflections about children’s participation were expressed. Together the results and analyze contributed to an understanding of the BCFPI method as a restricted method considering social psychology perspectives and perspectives of children’s participations. One interpretation of the results showed that much focus was on the effectiveness of the method. In the future it could therefor be significant to reflect upon social psychology aspects as well as aspects of children’s participation regarding the BCFPI method.
