English abstract
In recent years the number of adolescent refugees entering Sweden without an accompanying guardian has increased almost 10000 percent. Due to this unprecedented increase, career counseling must take new paths, explore new avenues and adopt new way of thinking in order to improve the structure. This is necessary to be able to provide enough guidance for adolescent refugees to begin the integration process into Swedish society. The aim of the study is to find out which ways of working and which career counseling methods are being used with adolescent refugees. The aim is also to see what the expectations are on the career counselors from a macro- and meso-perspective and to find out what the different parties want from counseling, since career counseling is a component of the integration process. This study is qualitative. Four career counselors, one department manager, one county council politician responsible for education and one employee at the Swedish National Agency for Education were interviewed. The result have been analyzed using chosen concepts in Careership theory, SCCT and Systems theory. Concepts of cultural competence and asymmetrical powers have also been used. The study results show that career counselors need more time to be able to perform high quality sessions and have the opportunity to use group counseling when appropriate. The counselor’s level of commitment strongly affects the result of the career counseling. The cultural competence of the counselors and engaged parents or guardians are crucial to successfully integrating youth refugees.
