Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
ADHD – Hyperactivity and concentration deficit with children, has been interesting to science for a century. We know since ca. 20 years back that this doesn’t necessarily disappear with age, instead in most cases it stays with the individual and follows the adult through life. We have interviewed career counsellors in different counties in Sweden, to see how they work with career counselling to adults with ADHD and to get a picture of their knowledge, we also interviewed adults with diagnosed ADHD to get a picture of their experience of their needs, that they may possibly have in meeting a career counsellor. The result shows great congruence between the career counsellors and their knowledge, their work method with counselling towards adults with ADHD and their experienced needs. This congruence is seen in both parties’ answers about clarity, structure, time-aspects and outlook on people along with treatment. This thesis can show the reader factors to considerate around how to work with this group, skills and knowledge in career counselling towards adults with ADHD.
