Social pedagogy in the role of the school counselor (English)
Abstract [sv]

Socialpedagogiken är ett relativt outforskat område i skolans värld och det råder olika meningar kring vad socialpedagogiken skulle kunna och faktiskt redan bidrar med ute i det svenska skolsystemet. Studien som är en uppsats på C-nivå syftar att fånga socialpedagogiskt arbete ur en specifik yrkesgrupps perspektiv, nämligen skolkuratorns. Det empiriska materialet består av semistrukturerade forskningsintervjuer med 5 skolkuratorer som alla är utbildade socialpedagoger. Studien har ett explorativt syfte där kärnan alltså består i att ge en bild av hur skolkuratorerna själva uppfattar att de använder socialpedagogiken i sin yrkesroll som skolkuratorer. Studiens teoretiska ramverk bygger på socialpedagogiskt traditionella tankemodeller om individen som formar sin identitet i relation till sin omgivning och de lärandeprocesser som finns att hitta i denna växelverkan mellan individ och samhälle. Socialpedagogiska perspektiv om gemenskap, delaktighet, empowerment, dialog, inklusion och exklusion har fungerat som utgångspunkter att betrakta skolkuratorernas erfarenheter utifrån. Materialet har analyserats med analysmetoden IPA och resulterade i 4 övergripande teman: Relationsbyggande, Skapandet av insocialiserande processer, Inklusion och Fokus på det som fungerar. I diskussionsdelen diskuteras studiens relevans för det sociala fältet och för den aktuella situationen i dagens svenska skola.

Abstract [en]

Social pedagogy is a relatively unexplored area in the Swedish school-system and there are different opinions about what social pedagogy could, and indeed already contribute with out in the Swedish schools. The study, a thesis C-level aims to capture the social pedagogical work out a specific profession perspective, the school counselors. The empirical material consists of semi-structured research interviews with five school counselors who are all trained social pedagogues. The study has an exploratory purpose where the core is to provide a picture of how the school counselors themselves perceive that they use social pedagogy in their professional role as school counselors. The theoretical framework is based on a social pedagogical perspective built on traditional social pedagogical thoughts and theories. These theories and concepts all focuses on the individual that shapes their identity in relation to their environment and the learning processes that can be found in the interaction between the individual and society. Theories about community, participation, empowerment, dialogue, inclusion and exclusion has served as starting points to consider the experiences given by the school counselors. The material was analyzed with the analytical IPA and resulted in four broad themes: Relationship building, Creating socializing processes, Inclusion and Focus on what works. In the discussion section the study's relevance to the social field and the current situation in Swedish schools today is addressed.
