The main questions in this study was 1) what is counselors view on parental involvement? 2) what is the counselors approach towards the adolescents maturity and ability to manage their mental illness? 3) how do counselors work in the handling of adolescents mental illness and parental involvement? We interviewed two counselors within health care, two within the youth clinic and two school counselors in Scania (Skåne), which have been randomly selected. Partly the analysis is based on Pierre Bourdieus concepts about field and doxa. Most of the analysis is however based on Erik Eriksons and James Marcias theorys about identity. We found that counselours work differently with parental involvement and make individual assessments when parents should be contacted or not, unless the adolescent itself wants the counsleor to contact their parents. All the counselors could see something positive and something negative in parental involvement. Some conselors thought that parental involvement was the main focus, while some wanted to involve them as little as possible. This means that they have different kinds of doxa, and their work routine is different from each others. The adolescents are in a process where they have to find their own identity and be independent. They are still in need of adult support, but have to manage to take care of them self and begin their journey to the adult life.

Key words: parental involvement, adolescents, counselors, separation-individuation, identity (Less)
