Working with student health at upper secondary school : a qualitative study of the percieved work situation for school nurses and counselors at upper secondary school (English)
Abstract [sv]

Forskning visar att ungas psykiska hälsa blir allt sämre och de statliga myndigheterna rekommenderas att förstärka elevhälsan. Samtidigt satsas det mycket pengar på forskning i ämnet och det sker en ständig omarbetning inom elevhälsan. Denna studies syfte var att undersöka hur personalen i elevhälsan upplever sin arbetssituation med tanke på hur den nuvarande situationen kring ungdomars psykiska hälsa presenteras. Studien genomfördes kvalitativt med hjälp av intervjuer som analyserades genom en tematisk analys. Tolv stycken anställda inom elevhälsa deltog i studien varav hälften var skolsköterskor och hälften var skolkuratorer på gymnasieskolor i Mellansverige. Resultatet som framkom består av tre teman vid namn; Trivsel och engagemang, Otillräcklighet och begränsning samt Beroende av samverkan. Samtliga respondenter talade om hur de drivs av att vilja göra skillnad och trivs med sina arbetsuppgifter. Majoriteten av respondenterna talade också om att de inte känner sig tillräckliga i sin yrkesroll då de skulle vilja se till att det görs mer. För att inte påverkas negativt av de tankarna har flertalet respondenter utarbetat strategier. Många nämnde ett behov av att kunna samarbeta med olika instanser både på och utanför skolan och känner sig beroende av högre instansers beslut med en önskan att kunna påverka dessa i större grad.
