Abstract [en]

The article focuses on 13-year-old girls’ meaning-making processes during participation in a manual-based psycho-educational course at school. Drawing on childhood studies and ethnographic investigations of subjectivity, I explore how the course is realized in practice. The analysis, based on video-recordings of thirteen classes, shows that the girls and the teachers, through collective transformation, moves the focus from individual potential problems to relational issues. The result demonstrates the weakness of using manual-based educational courses, and indicates that cognitive methods for dealing with negative thoughts could be replaced by exercises designed to deal with interaction and strengthening the individual.
