Effekter av träning, socialt stöd och stresstålighet på arbetsrelaterad stress hos svenska lärare (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between physical activity, social support and hardiness as predictors of occupational stress in Swedish upper secondary school teachers. Effects with respect to gender were also examined. A convenience sample of teachers (n=145) from three different municipalities participated in a cross-sectional survey. The results indicated that physical activity, social support and hardiness significantly predicted the level of occupational stress in upper secondary school teachers. Despite female teachers reporting significantly higher levels of stress compared to males, no interaction effects between gender and physical activity, social support or hardiness were found. In summary, physical activity, social support and hardiness appear to provide stress buffering effects for male and female teachers alike. Implications of the findings and suggestions for further research are discussed.

Abstract [sv]

Målet med denna studie var att undersöka förhållandet mellan fysisk aktivitet, socialt stöd och stresstålighet som prediktorer av arbetsrelaterad stress hos svenska gymnasielärare. Könsskillnader för respektive effekt på nivå av stress undersöktes. Ett bekvämlighetsurval av lärare (n=145) från tre olika kommuner deltog i vår tvärsnittsstudie. Resultaten pekade på att fysisk aktivitet, socialt stöd och stresstålighet signifikant predicerar nivån av arbetsrelaterad stress hos gymnasielärare. Trots att kvinnliga lärare rapporterade signifikant högre nivåer av arbetsrelaterad stress i jämförelse med manliga lärare fann vi ingen signifikant interaktionseffekt mellan kön och fysisk aktivitet, socialt stöd eller stresstålighet. Sammanfattningsvis framstår det som att fysisk aktivitet, socialt stöd och stresstålighet förser stresskyddande effekter för både manliga och kvinnliga lärare. Implikationer av fynden och förslag på framtida forskning diskuteras.
