Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to examine how school counsellors viewed their own profession. More specifically its aim was to find out how the work description, work assignment and professional role affected the school counsellor within their profession. As the study was based on semi-structured interviews the questions were designed to give the informants a wide opportunity to discuss specific topics. In the study five school counsellors working within public Swedish upper secondary schools were interviewed. The analysis was based mainly on two different theoretical frames of reference which were professionalization theory; focusing on the profession itself and role theory; focusing on the school counsellor in its environment. As a conclusion the profession can be described as vague and yet to be fully defined. The change in law regarding the school counsellors function within the educational arena could have meant that a big variety of expectations surrounds the school counsellor. This is in turn could have led to the fact that school counsellors express different variations, whilst sharing a lot of similarities on how the professional role should be perceived and exerted as.
