Abstract [en]

Our purpose with this qualitative study is to investigate how teachers experience their work situation, using Karasek and Theorell’s demand-, control- and support model. The study is based upon ten semi-structured interviews with gymnasium teachers. The interviews were transcribed and coded with three different themes; demand, control and support. We analyzed the results with Karasek and Theorell’s mentioned model. The results shows that all three dimensions – demand, control and support – seem important for teachers’ experienced work situation. Though we found that social support seems to be more important than the degree of control, which is the most important dimension according to Karasek and Theorell’s model, as well as according to previous research within the area of psychosocial disorder. Further, we reached the conclusion that a high level of control does not always have to be favorable, as it might cause more stress for the employees.

Abstract [sv]

Denna kvalitativa studie syftar till att undersöka hur lärare på en utvald gymnasieskola upplever sin arbetssituation, utifrån Karaseks och Theorells krav-, kontroll och stödmodell. Vi önskar få en djupare förståelse för hur lärares välmående påverkas av krav, kontroll och stöd i arbetet. Vi genomförde tio semistrukturerade telefonintervjuer med gymnasielärare på den utvalda skolan. Intervjumaterialet transkriberades och kodades därefter utifrån tre olika teman; krav, kontroll samt stöd. Analysen gjordes utifrån Karaseks och Theorells ovan nämnda modell. Resultatet visar att samtliga dimensioner tycks ha en stor betydelse för hur lärare upplever sin arbetssituation. Vi fann att den dimension som verkar vara mest betydelsefull för lärares upplevda arbetssituation är det sociala stödet, och således inte i första hand egenkontroll, som framgår av Karaseks och Theorells modell samt i tidigare forskning. Studien visar vidare att hög egenkontroll inte per automatik behöver vara någonting positivt, som det framstår vid studerande av Karaseks och Theorells modell.
