Abstract [en]

Adolescents are coming to high school counselors to talk about sexuality for various reasons and the purpose of this study is to gain an enhanced understanding of how adolescents in high school talk regarding sexuality and LGBTQ. The empirical material is assembled on eight narrative interviews with high school counselors. The school counselors have through their experiences in meeting adolescents, submitted stories about the adolescents´ conversations regarding sexuality to us. The empirical data were analyzed by a standard critical perspective and with the help of heteronormativity it made norms about what is normal and abnormal visible and problematized. The result demonstrates that adolescents are influenced by norms of society, the media, family and friends. The main discussion areas of sexuality and LGBTQ, as seen in this study, are the media, social context plus norms and values. Adolescents express themselves in various ways and they are generally described as up-front, in case of discussing sexuality. To get a deeper insight into the empirical material we have used a narrative analysis that contributed reconstructions based on specific themes of the school counselors stories. The study's main findings is that adolescents surroundings, self-identity and self-esteem are the underlying factors of why adolescents talk with school counselors about sexuality. These three factors influence how adolescents talk about sexuality and what the conversations with the school counselors contains.

Abstract [sv]

Ungdomar vänder sig till gymnasiekuratorn av olika anledningar för att prata om sexualitet och studiens syfte är att få en ökad förståelse för hur gymnasieungdomar samtalar om sexualitet och HBTQ med kuratorer. Det empiriska materialet grundar sig på åtta narrativa intervjuer med gymnasiekuratorer. Kuratorerna har genom sina erfarenheter av att möta ungdomar, berättat för oss om ungdomars samtal gällande sexualitet. Empirin har analyserats genom ett normkritiskt perspektiv och med hjälp av heteronormativitet har vi synliggjort och problematiserat normer om vad som anses normalt och avvikande. Resultatet visar att ungdomar påverkas av normer från samhället, media, familj och vänner. De främsta samtalsområdena inom sexualitet och HBTQ är media, social kontext och normer samt värderingar. Ungdomar uttrycker sig på olika sätt vid samtalen och de är överlag öppna kring att samtala om sexualitet. För att få en fördjupad insikt i det empiriska materialet har vi använt en narrativ analys som bidragit till rekonstruktioner av kuratorernas berättelser utifrån särskilda teman. Studiens viktigaste resultat är att ungdomars omgivning, självidentitet och självkänsla är bakomliggande faktorer till varför ungdomar samtalar med gymnasiekuratorer om sexualitet. Dessa tre faktorer påverkar hur ungdomar pratar om sexualitet och vad samtalen med kuratorn handlar om.
