School counsellors’ experiences and knowledge regarding anxiety in young women : A qualitative interview study (English)
The aim of the study was to examine the knowledge that school counsellors in Swedish schools have about young women with anxiety disorders. The study also examines how the counsellors act when there is a suspicion or a case of anxiety in a female student. With a qualitative approach eight school counsellors were interviewed. The theoretical approach that was used is the sociology of knowledge. Some of the study’s conclusions are that anxiety disorders are frequent among young girls. School counsellors have different types of education and work experiences which can affect their understanding of anxiety disorders. There are similar opinions among the school counsellors regarding the definition of anxiety and that it is a serious condition where the affected needs some sort of support or help to handle it. The results and conclusions confirm and extend the previous research made on the subject.
