Abstract [sv]

Uppsatsen syftade till att belysa kuratorers erfarenheter av arbete med individer som har utmattningssyndrom. Sju kuratorer inom primärvården intervjuades i en kvalitativ intervjustudie. Resultatet visade att kuratorernas erfarenheter av orsaker till utmattningssyndrom kunde relateras till både inre och yttre krav. Utmattningssyndromets ökning i samhället beskrevs bero på samhällsförändringar samt att många vill att allting i livet ständigt ska vara på topp. För att identifiera patientens behov beskrevs skattningsinstrument, diagnostisering, alliansbygge och kartläggning som viktiga delar. Avgörande för vilken metod och tillvägagångssätt som används var individens behov, kuratorns bakgrund och personliga egenskaper, den egna organisationen samt utvärdering av behandlingens effekt. Empowerment, KBT, mindfulness och samverkan med andra professionella beskrevs som användbara metoder och tillvägagångssätt i kuratorns arbete med patienter som har utmattningssyndrom. Informanterna beskrev att det tar lång tid för patienter med utmattningssyndrom att återhämta sig och att rutinen 8-10 samtal med patienten ofta inte är tillräckligt.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to illustrate counselors’ experiences of working with individuals experiencing exhaustion disorder. Seven counselors working in primary health care were interviewed in a qualitative study. The results showed that the counselors’ experiences of causes to exhaustion disorder could be related to both external and internal factors. The increase of exhaustion disorder within society was ascribed to societal change and the demand to always be on top of things. To identify the patients’ needs questionnaires, diagnosis, alliance building and mapping were used. The method and approach used was determined by the patients’ needs, the counselors’ background, personal traits, organizational guidelines and evaluation of treatment results. Empowerment, CBT, mindfulness and cooperation with other professionals were described as useful counseling methods and approaches. Counselors described that the recovery for patients with exhaustion disorder takes time, and the routine of 8-10 meetings with the patient is often not enough.
