Abstract [en]

My essay is about a dilemma that came up on a preschool that I worked in. My purpose with my essay is to examine and to get an understanding for what children with attachement and separation anxiety goes through, and how a preschool teacher the best way can help them.

The background story is about a boy named Sixten (not his real name). When separated from one of the preschool teachers Sixten exhibits a great deal of separation anxiety. In the story I give some clear examples of situations where Sixten displays this separation anxiety. I have in the essay viewed it from different perspectives and I have questioned my own role as an educator, but also my entire team. I have the whole time analyzed my own and my colleagues actions to be able to find out where the dilemma really is.

I have gained new knowledge through the study of academic literature and my own analysis of the situations with separation anxiety. I have also learned how to use that knowledge in my work as a preschool teacher.
