We gathered the empirical material and categorized it in several themes using four theories: Organization theory, interaction theory, professional theory and discretion. Through the coding of the empirical material, three themes emerged: Cooperation, confidentiality and profession and legitimacy. We also found that the school councilor’s felt their role and mission in the school was misunderstood or not understood at all. There was also lack of clarity with the confidentiality between the school counselor, the social services, BUP, parents and students.
