Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis has been to examine preventing child sexual abuse in four elementary schools in Stockholm, Sweden. The study is based on qualitative interviews with school counselors. The aim of this thesis was to find out how and if elementary schools in Sweden work with preventing child sexual abuse. The aim was also to examine how the school counselors reason about the schools efforts to prevent child sexual abuse. Their statements was analysed with Foucault’s theory about sexual history to get a deeper understanding for why people reason the way they do when it comes to issues like this. It was interesting to see if there was something in our history that made us think the way we do. An organization theory was used to help understand why the school works the way it does, but also to get a better understanding for the schools discretion. The main conclusions of this study have been that these four schools in Sweden mostly focus on children that already have been sexually abused rather than trying to prevent child sexual abuse from happening in the first place. It was also found that most of the school counselors were feeling that there lies a taboo around this kind of topic.
