Abstract [en]

The aim of this article is to problematise how confession operates as a technology that shapes and fosters subjects within vocational education. By rehearsing parts of Foucault’s genealogy of confession as emerging among the Stoics and within Christianity, an in-service training program for care workers within elderly care is analyzed. Learning conversations and log-books are identified as confessional techniques through which care workers come to know who they are. These techniques work through the freedom of those they target and thus these techniques need to be problematised
