Physical self-perception of female high school students : and how it affects them in the subject of physical education (English)
Abstract [sv]

I tidigare forskning går det att läsa att individers fysisk självuppfattning kan påverka deras beteende, attityder, upplevelser och känslor i förhållande till kroppen. Den fysiska självuppfattningen kan variera beroende på vilken situation personen befinner sig i. Det finns även en koppling mellan personers fysiska yttre och självuppfattningen som grundas i de västerländska normer som finns kring utseende och kroppsideal. Syftet med uppsatsen är att undersöka kvinnliga elevers fysiska självuppfattning och hur de upplever att den påverkar deras deltagande och syn på idrott och hälsa. En semistrukturerad intervjumetod användes för undersökningen och sex kvinnliga gymnasieelever deltog. Resultatet visar att respondenternas fysiska självuppfattning varierar beroende på vilken situation eleverna befinner sig i. Den teoretiska undervisningen framstår problematisk då läraren pratat om hälsa på ett vilseledande sätt utan att ta hänsyn till elever med bland annat ätstörningar. Samtliga respondenter anser att undervisningen om fysisk självuppfattning kan bli mycket bättre och att det är ett arbete för hela skolan. Då begreppet hälsa har många definitioner finns det goda möjligheter att vidga undervisningen om hälsa. Samhället överöser oss dagligen med hur vi kan uppnå hälsa genom att konstant förändra oss själva. Hälsa-undervisningen borde fokusera mer på att lära elever om självkärlek.

Abstract [en]

Previous research shows that an individual’s physical self-perception can affect their behaviour, attitudes, experiences, and emotions in relation to their body. The physical self-perception can vary, depending on the social situation that a person is in. There is also a connection between a person’s physical appearance and their self-perception that is based upon western norms connected to appearance and body ideal. The purpose of this study is to examine female students’ physical body-perception, and how they feel that this perception affects their participation and view in the subject physical education. Six female high school students participated in the semi-structured interviews that were used as a method in this study. The results show that the respondents’ physical sel-perception varied depending on which situation the students are in. Parts of the theoretical education appears problematic when the teacher misleadingly talking about health without taking into consideration that there might be students present, suffering from, for example, eating disorders. All the respondents believe that education on physical self-perception could improve and that this is something that concerns all parts of the school/education. The conception of health has many definitions and there are good possibilities for the health-education/ education on health to widen. Daily, the society provides us with information on how to become healthier by constantly changing ourselves. Education on health should focus more on teaching the students about self-love, than anything else.
