Abstract [sv]

Syftet med föreliggande studie var att undersöka anknytningsteorin i relation till arbetslivet. Anknytningsteorin behandlar samspelet mellan omvårdnad och anknytning. Teorin omfattas av olika anknytningsstilar: trygg, undvikande och ängslig, som människan utvecklar beroende på hur de behandlas av sin primära vårdnadsgivare under uppväxten. Det huvudsakliga syftet var att undersöka om trygg anknytningsstil genererar hög arbetstillfredsställelse. Studien utgick från Self Determination Theory som bygger på att behoven autonomi, kompetens och samhörighet bör uppfyllas för att skapa motivation och därmed nå högre tillfredsställelse. Teorin omfattas även av två olika motivationsformer: autonom och kontrollerad, vilka i föreliggande studie undersöktes i relation till anknytningsstilarna. Populationen var vårdanställda (n = 88) i en kommun i södra Sverige. Deskriptiv data visade att anställda inom vården har en övervägande trygg anknytningsstil. Resultatet i denna studie visade att det fanns ett signifikant samband mellan hög arbetstillfredsställelse och hög nivå av trygg anknytningsstil (p = .006). Resultatet visade inga signifikanta skillnader i motivationsform mellan de olika anknytningsstilarna. Den huvudsakliga slutsatsen i föreliggande studie var att trygg anknytningsstil kan predicera hög arbetstillfredsställelse (p = .007). 

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine Attachment Theory in relation to working life. Attachment Theory deals with the interaction between nursing and attachment. The theory includes different attachment styles: secure, avoidant and anxious that people acquire depending on how they are treated by their primary caregiver while growing up. The main purpose was to investigate whether a secure attachment style generates high job satisfaction. The study was based on Self Determination Theory which states that the needs for autonomy, competence and relatedness should be met to create motivation and achieve higher satisfaction. The theory also contains two different forms of motivation: autonomous and controlled, which in the present study were investigated in relation to the attachment styles. The population was health care workers (n = 88) in a municipality in southern Sweden. Descriptive data showed that health care workers have a predominantly secure attachment style. The results of this study showed that there was a significant correlation between high job satisfaction and high level of secure attachment style (p = .006). The results showed no significant differences in motivation between the various attachment styles. The main conclusion in this study was that secure attachment style can predict high job satisfaction (p = .007).
