School counsellors knowledge and experience of tics and Tourette syndrome : A qualitative interviewstudy (English)
The aim of this study was to examine the knowledge and the experience that school counsellors have about tics and Tourette syndrome. This study is based on a qualitative research which we conducted with semi-structured interviews. We have done five interviews with different school counsellors in a small municipality in southern Sweden. The theoretical approach that was used in this study was theory of knowledge as a comprehensive theory and professional competence which includes formal knowledge and tacit knowledge. Some of the study’s conclusions are that the School Counsellors had different professional competence about tics and Tourette syndrome. The school counsellors had received their knowledge through formal educations and work experience. School counsellors had different types of education which mean that they had different knowledge and experiences but also different approaches, methods and way to relate students with tics and Tourette syndrome in their profession. In our results, it appears that work experience and formal education often exist together. Therefore it is not possible to say which specific form of knowledge school counsellors use in a meeting with a student with tics and Tourette syndrome, and whether this could have affected the meeting.
