Att predicera kommande sömnstörningar - betydelsen av emotionell reglering (English)
Abstract [en]

The role of emotional regulation as a predictor for forthcoming sleep disturbances was investigated within the Prospective Investigations on Psychological Processes for Insomnia (PIPPI) study. Participants were classified to one of four sleep groups in accordance with a classification algorithm based on self report-data on nighttime symptoms, daytime symptoms, and sleep disorders other than insomnia. Measures of baseline emotional regulation were then examined as a predictor for follow-up sleep group affiliation. The results indicate that emotional regulation is a non-significant predictor of forthcoming sleep disturbances, also when individual sleep group-movements are controlled for. It is suggested that models on how sleep disturbances evolve are revised, that measures of emotional regulation are refined, and that a person oriented approach is adopted.

Abstract [sv]

Betydelsen av emotionell reglering som prediktor för kommande sömnstörningar undersöktes inom projektet "Prospektiva undersökningar på psykologiska processer rörande insomni". Baserat på självrapporteringsdata för nattidssymptom, dagtidssymptom och andra sömnstörningar än insomni, klassificerades deltagarna till en av fyra sömngrupper i enlighet med en klassificeringsalgoritm. Baslinjedata för emotionell reglering undersöktes sedan som prediktor för sömngruppstillhörighet vid uppföljningsmätningen. Resultatet indikerar att emotionell reglering inte är en signifikant prediktor för kommande sömnstörningar, detta även när individuella förflyttningar mellan sömngrupper tas i beaktande. Det föreslås att modeller för hur sömnstörningar utvecklas revideras, att mått för emotionell reglering förfinas samt att en personorienterad ansats antas.
