Abstract [en]

The aim of this thesis was to study how personal development of unemployed adolescents may be promoted by coaching. Twenty-eight participants between the ages of 16 and 24 were included in the study, whereof 16 participated in a project called Kubik, where the purpose was to support the participants in their individual development and minimize the risks for them to end up in alienation from society. The method was a combination of interviews and a quasi-experiment based on theories of coaching by Johansen & Oestrich (2005), McDermott & O'Connor (1998) and Stelter (2003). The specific accounts of behaviour and cognition in the study regarded the respondents’ perceptions of the future, self-confidence and social skills and how these may change due to coaching. The interviews were semi-structured and were analyzed with IPA (Interpretative phenomenological analysis). The quasi-experiment consisted of inquiries, which were analysed both in a between-groups design and a within-groups design. The results from the interviews showed that the participants in the project experienced change within the studied categories, but the quasi-experiment did not support the hypothesis that they would probably not have experienced this change if they had not participated in the project. A conclusion that was drawn was that the participants in the project Kubik experienced personal development that, according to the interview group, may be ascribed to coaching. A larger number of participants and a longer time interval could lead to safer conclusions if a similar investigation should take place in the future.
