Abstract
This qualitative study is about the individual supportive conversation with the school welfare officer in upper secondary school.

This qualitative study is about the individual supportive conversation with the school welfare officer in upper secondary school. The main aim of the study was to find out what the pupils get out of a series of conversations with the school welfare officer and what it means for the pupils that the welfare officer belongs to the school organization. Six qualitative interviews were held with pupils who had conversation contact with the school welfare officer during their time at upper secondary school.

I found that these pupils and welfare officers were oriented towards change and solutions. I found that the most important thing for the pupils was to achieve a good and trusting relationship with the welfare officer. After this the pupil starts a process of change in cooperation with the welfare officer, with the aim that the pupil should be happy and satisfied with the current life situation. With good cooperation and a good relationship as a basis, a use is found for both the pupil's and the welfare officer's experiences and knowledge.

The pupils were content with what they had got out of the conversations with the school welfare officer. They stated that the problems had been solved and/or that they had found attitudes with which to handle troublesome situations in life. The pupils regard school as a healthy and normal place, so they thought that it felt good to visit school welfare officer compared with visiting a welfare officer in the health service. They found it positive to be a pupil and avoid having to be a patient. (Less)
