Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att skapa förståelse för förhållandet mellan skolkuratorns person och yrkesroll samt hur känslor som uppkommer i elevsamtal hanteras. Utöver det undersöks också de konsekvenser för välbefinnande som kan följa av känslohantering, för såväl kurator som elev. Detta undersöks genom åtta kvalitativa intervjuer med skolkuratorer där deras beskrivningar av kuratorsyrket står i fokus. Intervjuerna utgör en systematiserad empiri som tolkas för att tillsammans med utvalda teorier besvara studiens frågeställning. De teorier som huvudsakligen används för att förstå empirin är teorierna om emotionellt arbete och social responsivitet. Vidare visar studiens resultat att skolkuratorer har varierande personlig distans till yrkesrollen. Detta tycks bero på att kuratorsrollen inte är särskilt definierad vilket ger kuratorer möjlighet att själva individuellt utforma yrkesrollen. Graden av personlig distans till yrkesrollen tycks avgöra i vilken utsträckning kuratorn behöver hantera de känslor som uppkommer i samtal med elever samt vilka konsekvenser detta får för kuratorns såväl som elevens välbefinnande.

 

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to understand the relationship between school counselor’s self and their professional role, also how they manage feelings which emerges from dialogues with students. Moreover, the consequences for counselor as well as student well-being, due to emotional management, will be examined. This will be examined through eight qualitative interviews with school counselors whose description of the counselling profession will be in the spotlight. The interviews will then be put together and interpreted with the selected theories which seek to answer the question formulation. The theories that mainly are used to understand the empirics are ’emotional labor’ and social responsivity. Furthermore, the study’s result shows that school counselors have various distances between their selves and the professional role. This seems to depend on that the counseling role is not well defined, which give counselors the opportunity to individually shape the professional role. In which extension the counselor needs to manage their feelings seems to be determined by the extent of personal distance to the professional role and also the consequences this will have on the well-being of the counselor as well as the student.
