Sample text

In the earlier stages of modernity, when the fields of psychosocial work were only just differentiating, one after another, the branch was not specialized enough to produce such multiagency complexity. Today, these dilemmas are not infrequent or exceptional. 6 On the one hand, there are the processes of individualization. On the other hand, there are the processes of societal differentiation. Individual–society relationships are experiencing a fundamental transformation. According to the German sociologist Ulrich Beck (1986), individualization is the core process of societal modernization.

The concept of boundary—and boundary systems—is, in our view, essential for analysing and developing psychosocial work. The idea that a system emerges through interaction across boundaries turned out to be very useful for understanding how the problems of the late-modern society were realized in concrete situations. Jaakko had analysed his team’s interactions with the families and developed a concept that could embody the independent nature of such co-created activity patterns. He called the co-created system the system of boundary.

The outcomes will very seldom be exactly what one anticipated. Instead, one is likely to face a mix of intended and unintended consequences. In order to learn what promotes change through being different enough while also maintaining contact by being familiar enough—in other words, is being appropriately different—it is useful to reflect upon the outcomes in the light of one’s anticipations. Controlling networks is not possible, but it is possible to learn more about how others position you. 1 Evan Imber-Black’s work (Imber-Black, 1988; Imber-Coppersmith, 1985) inspired Tom and Esa to combine anticipations with analysing multi-problem/multi-agency situations.
