Emotion and well-being in infertile women: : a comparative study between Sweden and Iran (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna studie undersökte kulturella skillnader i emotionella och kognitiva aspekter av subjektivt välbefinnande, mer specifikt uttryckt; nivåer av positiva, negativa och balanserade känslor och hur dessa påverkar välbefinnande. Studien innefattar 212 infertilitetsdrabbade kvinnor i det individualistiska landet Sverige och det kollektivistiska landet Iran. Korrelationsanalys, regressionsanalys och One-way ANOVA användes för att besvara forskningsfrågorna. Resultaten visade ingen kulturell skillnad i kognitivt välbefinnande; men Svenska kvinnor uppgav högre känslonivåer, medan de Iranska i större utsträckning kunde uppleva motsatta känslotillstånd samtidigt. Balanserad affekt var huvudsaklig prediktor för välbefinnande i båda grupper. Resultaten diskuterades utifrån teori om individualism, kollektivism och infertilitet i relation till subjekivt välbefinnande.

Abstract [en]

This study examined cultural differences in the cognitive and emotional aspects of subjective well-being, more specifically the levels of positive, negative and balance affect and how these affect cognitive well-being. It involves 212 infertile women in the individualistic country Sweden and the collectivistic country Iran. Analyses of correlation, stepwise and linear regression as well as One-Way ANOVA were used to answer the research questions. The results showed no cultural difference in cognitive well-being, and Swedish women reported higher levels of affect while the Iranian to a higher extent experienced positive and negative emotions simultaneously. Balance affect was the best predictor for well-being in both samples.
