The chapter points at the growing need for different welfare professions to collaborate and coordinate their services in order to respond to service users’ complex needs. To solve complex cases doctors, social workers and therapists often need to develop professional knowledge and skills that facilitate inter-professional collaboration. However, multi- or inter-professional services can give rise to demarcation problems and competition between professions. Using data from child welfare services in Finland and Norway, the chapter examines problems connected to the development of multi professional services that involve inter-professional boundary crossing and knowledge development.

Keywords:   Professional boundary crossing, multi professional services, complex needs, knowledge development, child welfare services
