Abstract [sv]

Huvudsyftet med föreliggande kvantitativa studie var att få en förståelse för hur individens sociokulturella influenser kan bidra till en god hantering av stressorer. Detta genom att jämföra en grupp brandmän från Värends Räddningstjänst i Växjö med en kontrollgrupp, för att med ett salutgeniskt perspektiv, undersöka om begreppet Kasam (Känsla av sammanhang) kan vara en möjlig förklaring till att brandmän klarar av de stressorer de utsätts för i deras yrke. Det sekundära syftet var att undersöka om individers uppskattade hälsa samverkar med graden av Kasam då dessa antas samspela. I studien deltog 75 respondenter varav 26 personer i gruppen brandmän och 49 personer i kontrollgruppen. Respondenterna från båda grupperna fick besvara 29 frågor i frågeformuläret Kasam-29 samt skatta sin upplevda hälsa. Resultatet visade att brandmännen har en signifikant högre genomsnittlig grad av Kasam jämfört med kontrollgruppen samt att graden av Kasam samverkar med upplevd hälsa.

Abstract [en]

The main purpose of this quantitative study was to gain an understanding of how the individual's socio-cultural influences may contribute to their management of stressors. This by comparing a group of firefighters from Värends Räddningstjänst i Växjö with a control group by using a salutogenic perspective examine if the concept of SOC (Sense of Coherence) may be a possible explanation to how firemen cope with the stressors they face in their profession. The secondary purpose was to investigate whether individuals' estimated health interacts with the degree of SOC though these are assumed to interact. The study involved 75 respondents including 26 people in the group firefighters and 49 people in the control group. Respondents from both groups were asked to answer 29 questions in the questionnaire SOC-29 and overestimate their perceived health. The results showed that firefighters have a significant higher average level of SOC comparing to the control group and that the degree of SOC interact with perceived health.
