Experienced dependency-oriented psychological control and its impact on social anxiety : A quantitative survey study about the relation between  dependency-oriented  psychologically controlling parents and social anxiety in Swedish adolescents (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte var att undersöka relationen mellan upplevd beroendefokuserad psykologisk kontroll och social ångest hos ungdomar, för att se om det fanns skillnader i ungdomars sociala ångest avseende deltagarens och förälderns kön, samt grad av beroendefokuserad psykologisk kontroll. Data samlades in via det pågående forskningsprojektet Trestadsstudien genom enkätundersökning våren 2015. Beroendefokuserad psykologisk kontroll mättes med subskalan för DPC i DAPCS, och social ångest mättes med SPSQ-C. Totalt deltog 2958 elever i åttonde och nionde klass från tolv svenska skolor i undersökningen. Data analyserades via korrelationer, t-test och ANOVA. Resultatet visade på signifikanta positiva korrelationer mellan upplevd beroendefokuserad psykologisk kontroll och social ångest, och signifikanta huvudeffekter i form av deltagarens kön och grad av upplevd beroendefokuserad psykologisk kontroll avseende social ångest. Vidare påvisades det att pojkar i högre utsträckning än flickor upplevde beroendefokuserad psykologisk kontroll från fadern, samt att flickor hade en högre grad av social ångest. Slutsatser som drogs utifrån resultatet var att upplevd beroendefokuserad psykologisk kontroll tycks vara en bidragande orsak till utvecklandet av social ångest hos ungdomar, men att bakomliggande variabler med stor sannolikhet bidrar till ångesten, och då främst hos flickor. Vidare lyftes andra områden av intresse för eventuell fortsatt forskning kring de båda fenomenen utifrån studiens resultat. Avslutningsvis nämndes även praktiska förslag på vad som skulle kunna göras i skolor för att uppmärksamma fenomenen och hjälpa de ungdomar som lider av social ångest och utsätts för beroendefokuserad psykologisk kontroll.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study was to examine the relation between experienced dependency-oriented psychological control and social anxiety in adolescents, and if there were any differences in adolescents’ social anxiety depending on the participant’s and the parent’s gender, as well as degree of experienced dependency-oriented psychological control. Data was collected via the ongoing project Trestadsstudien through a survey conducted during the spring of 2015. Dependency-oriented psychological control was measured with the subscale for DPC in DAPCS, and social anxiety with SPSQ-C. 2958 students in eight and ninth grade from twelve Swedish schools participated. Data was analyzed via correlations, t-tests and ANOVA. Results showed significant positive correlations between experienced dependency-oriented psychological control and social anxiety, as well as significant main effects in the form of the participant’s gender and degree of experienced dependency-oriented psychological control regarding social anxiety. Results also showed that boys to a higher extent experienced dependency-oriented psychological control from their fathers, and that girls experienced more social anxiety. It was concluded that experienced dependency-oriented psychological control seems like a contributing factor to the development of social anxiety, but that other underlying variables likely contribute to the anxiety, and mostly in girls. Other areas of interest for future research concerning both phenomena were pointed out based on the results. Lastly some practical suggestions were made regarding what could be done in schools to note the phenomena and help the adolescents who suffer from social anxiety and are subjected to dependency-oriented psychological control.
