School counselor in the multicultural school : A qualitative study of school counselors work with newly arrived students (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studien syftade till att undersöka skolkuratorers upplevelser och erfarenheter av att arbeta med nyanlända elever. För att uppfylla syftet genomfördes kvalitativa intervjuer med fem skolkuratorer. Studien visade att professionen skolkurator omfattas av ett stort handlingsutrymme, men att detta handlingsutrymme inskränktes av olika organisatoriska begränsningar, till största delen resursbristen hos skolorna. Resursbristen resulterade i ett för stort elevantal per kurator, vilket medförde en tidsbrist för kuratorerna. Studien visade också att kuratorerna utgår från ett helhetsperspektiv i arbetet med eleverna, genom att uppmärksamma både psykiska och sociala behov. Utifrån kuratorernas utsagor var det mest framträdande behovet hos eleverna behovet av att tillägna sig språket. För att möta barnens behov arbetar kuratorerna på en individ-, grupp- och samhällsnivå. Därtill framhölls vikten av samarbete med andra professioner samt en särskild förståelse i form av kulturell kompetens.

Abstract [en]

This study aimed to examine school counselors experiences of working with newly arrived students. To fulfill the purpose, five qualitative interviews with school counselors were conducted. The school counselor profession is covered by a large degree of discretion, but it was limited by various organizational limitations, mainly the lack of resources in schools. Which resulted in an excessive number of students per school counselor, which led to a lack of time in their work. The school counselors had a holistic perspective in their work with the students, by paying attention to both the psychological and social needs. The most prominent need of the students were the need to acquire the swedish language. To meet the needs of the children the school counselors worked on an individual, group and community level. This study also showed that it was important to collaborate with other professions and a special understanding in form of cultural competence was needed.
