The goal of this study is to examine how school counselors looks on collaboration and trust in relation to collaboration. I am using qualitative methods such as interviews and observations and my empirical work is based on three school counselors from the same municipality with the same management and guidelines. I chose to interview school counselors from the same municipality to get a common ground to stand on. Two of the informants have worked as a school counselor for over 10 years and one of them has worked as a school counselor for two months. I have supplemented my empirical data-collection with additional interviews with informants over the phone. My research questions I have based my study on are: How does the requirements for collaboration affect the school counselor's role?
The results from my research question showed that internal collaboration is consensus-oriented where the school counselor is part of a team with other professionals in the school and this makes the school counselor’s role more clear for the children while the external collaboration is more conflict-oriented, where various power-constellation are formed. This makes the school counselor’s role unsure in front of the children and this harms the reliance the children have for the school counselors. (Less)
