Within the last two decades, Barnahus to deal with sexually abused children and adolescents have been established in the Scandinavian countries. The Barnahus are based on a common model and aim at ensuring a professional and holistic approach to children and adolescents who have been exposed to physical, mental or sexual abuse. The idea is to offer a cross-sectoral effort within one place. Experiences from Iceland, Greenland and Denmark, where Barnahus were established in 1998, 2011 and 2013, show that, despite a common point of departure, the Barnahus have evolved in different directions. Based on studies of and interview with Barnahus in the three countries this presentation presents the current organization and approach to abused children present in the three countries. The fact that the development of Barnahus has taken different directions in the three countries suggests that implementing one methodological approach to abused children is not possible without regard for national, political and organizational logics and local practical conditions. The question is whether the differences in the implementation of the Barnahus model influence the help children and adolescents in the three countries are offered. The presentation explores dilemmas and challenges in the implementation of Barnahus and discusses if it is possible to discuss what kind of approach is in the best interests of the child.
