In Sweden, young people are assessed in secure accommodations at the request of the social services. Although this kind of practice has a historical heritage in Sweden, research about their effectiveness and implications is lacking, especially from the assessed young people's perspective. In this oral communication a study about how 16 Swedish adolescents perceived being assessed in a secure accommodation at time of the assessment and in retrospect is presented.
