Abstract

In this contribution, a sociological study of networks of human service organizations, using social network analysis, is presented. Data from nine networks of human service organizations involved in the care for children and youngsters in Flanders are analysed. The analyses aim to sketch the prevailing pattern of client referral between types of organizations. It is speculated that the referral of clients between human service organizations is based on the role expectations that derive from the statute of the organization. Using blockmodelling techniques, it is investigated to what degree the relations of referral and the network position of an organization are directed by the statute of the organization. Results indicate that the relations of referral and the position of the organization in the network are – to a large extent – determined by the bylaws of the organization. From the data from nine networks, an average blockmodel is derived that represents the pattern of relationships between types of organizations in the average network of freely accessible youth care in Flanders.
