Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to examine how men perceive their male identity affects their coping with unhappiness in Sweden. The hypothesis was that men lack positive masculine role models. This study is qualitative in nature with discourse analysis. The study has used three theories as guidelines to the interview questions and as basis for the analysis. The theories used are, Hegemonic Masculinity Theory, The Transactional Model of Stress and Coping and Symbolic Interactionism.  The results of the study show that it is not clear whether men use particular coping strategies that relate to their masculinity. However, it indicates that they believe that being a man has an effect on which coping strategies they use.
