Work Related Stress : the Importance of Cognitive and Behavioral Process Variables (English)
Abstract [sv]

Betydelsen av kognitivt och beteendemässigt undvikande samt katastroftankar studerades i det sedan tidigare kända sambandet mellan psykosocial arbetsmiljö och upplevd stress. Vidare undersöktes huruvida det fanns subgrupper med olika psykosocial arbetsmiljö. Denna tvärsnittsstudie baserades på enkätdata. Resultat indikerar att kognitivt undvikande och katastroftankar har en medierande funktion, samt att katastroftankar har en svag modererande funktion i sambandet. Vidare finns det subgrupper med olika psykosocial arbetsmiljö, vilka även skiljer sig åt avseende kognitivt undvikande och katastroftankar samt upplevd stress. Området är tidigare relativt obeforskat, varför författarna föreslår vidare forskning om kognitiva och beteendemässiga processvariablers betydelse i upplevelsen av stress.

Abstract [en]

This cross-sectional study examined the function of cognitive and behavioral avoidance and catastrophizing in relation to the already known association between psychosocial work environment and perceived stress. The study also examined whether there were subgroups with different psychosocial work environments. The results indicate that cognitive avoidance and catastrophizing serve as mediators, and that catastrophizing serve as a weak moderator in the association. Further, there were subgroups with different psychosocial work environments, which also differed regarding cognitive avoidance, catastrophizing and perceived stress. This area of investigation is to date relatively uncovered by research, which is why the authors suggest further research on the significance of cognitive and behavioral process variables in the perception of stress.
