Abstract [sv]

Självskadebeteende tycks öka bland ungdomar oavsett kön samtidigt som samhället utvecklas. Mer press sätts på ungdomar som behöver planera sin framtid i förtid för att på detta sätt inte utsättas för mer stress och ångest samt för att lyckas som individ. Denna ångest kan i sin tur leda till ett självskadebeteende som reduceras på allt fler sätt. I takt med samhällets utveckling är det allt vanligare att ungdomar uttrycker sin ångest i fler arenor som sociala medier. Det är dock inte lika vanligt att det talas om självskadebeteende bland pojkar som flickor. Därför har denna studie försökt lyfta fram pojkars dåliga mående likväl som flickors. Denna studie är en kvalitativ intervjustudie som har som syfte att undersöka kuratorernas upplevelser av självskadebeteende bland ungdomar. Samtliga fem intervjuade kuratorer arbetar på verksamheter där ungdomarna frivilligt besöker dem. Resultat av studien visar att kuratorer upplever en ökning av självskadebeteende bland unga i form av bland annat skärning, självsvält samt posering i sociala medier. Resultatet visar även att kuratorerna önskar mer förebyggande arbete av självskadebeteende och allt mer gemensamma utbildningar med andra instanser. Studiens slutsatser blev att dessa instanser kan underlätta kuratorerna i sitt arbete i kampen mot ungdomars dåliga mående.
