an overview of the literatureen litteraturoversigt
This article reviews literature on Multi-Disciplinary Work (MDW) for children and young people in need of special support, as defined by the Danish Social Services Act. The focus is on frontline workers’ everyday encounters with each other. The author reviews all significant Danish publications between 1999 and until the middle of 2008. The publications are categorised as one of the following: primary research, secondary research, and practice and commentary literature. Although there has been an increase in the promotion of MDW with an emphasis on early intervention and prevention during the last 30 years, this literature review reveals a lack of research publications. Even though the literature review advocates that the quality of existing Danish research literature is varying, it also demonstrates that there are several good sources which can be used when writing theoretically about MDW or for enhancing MDW on a practice level in Denmark as well in other Nordic countries.
