English abstract
The aim of this study was to investigate how various professions within the treatment of ADHD is working with the diagnosis and the importance of the diagnosis has been at work. We also want to investigate what the different professions think of the diagnosis, what it has for opportunities or limitations in treatment. The chosen professions are two nurses, two treatment assistants, a psychologist and a psychotherapist. When we interviewed our chosen professions, we have used a qualitative approach with semistructured interviews. Through our interviews we got the opportunity to take part in the various professions' knowledge and experience of working with teenagers who have ADHD. The results show that there are different ways to look at the diagnosis and its implications, and that the professionals believe that the diagnosis brings both opportunities and limitations of the treatment. The most important thing is not to have a predetermined idea of how teenagers with ADHD behave as this can mean major limitations in the treatment. Meanwhile, the diagnosis of opportunities helps the professionals to understand the teenager's difficulties in everyday life. For a successful treatment requires that there is a good cooperation with the help of a good alliance between the professional and the individual. To achieve this, understanding of the diagnosis and its symptoms decisive treatment.
