Abstract [sv]

Studien avser att undersöka arbetsrelaterad stress och dess betydelse för relationer i privatlivet. Vidare undersöker studien betydelsen av arbetsrelaterad stress för den egna identiteten. Studien utfördes genom semistrukturerade intervjuer med åtta deltagare vid ett mindre företag. Intervjuerna byggdes på fyra större teman: synen på den egna identiteten, förändring av identiteten, relationer och gränsen mellan arbetsliv och privatliv.

Resultatet visar att arbetsrelaterad stress och arbetsbörda har en betydande innebörd för relationer i privatlivet samt den egna identiteten. Genom att ta tid från privatlivet för att istället spendera denna på arbetsrelaterade uppgifter minskar möjligheten till vårdande av sociala band. Detta innebär försämrade relationer eller att relationen upphör helt. Vidare visar resultatet att arbetsrelaterad stress inte endast uppkommer från arbetet utan även att stress skapas ur relationer i privatlivet och utifrån den egna identiteten. Genom att inte kunna besvara privatlivets förväntningar förstärks upplevelsen av stress och den egna identiteten kan komma att ifrågasättas, både av individen själv men också av omgivningen. 

Abstract [en]

The study means to examine work-related stress and its meaning for relationships in the private life. In addition, the study means to examine the meaning of work-related stress for the own identity. The study was carried out through qualitative interviews with eight participants at a smaller company. The interviews were built on four major themes: the view of the own identity, changes in the identity, relationships and the border between work life and private life.

The results shows that work-related stress and workload have an important significance for relationships in the private life as well as the own identity. By spending the time of the private life at work-related tasks the tending to social bonds decreases which results in worsen social bonds or that the relationship completely ceases to exist. In addition the results show that work-related stress not only come to existence through work, but the experience of it is created through relationships in the private life and the own identity. By not being able to meet the expectations set by the private life the experience of work-related stress is enhanced and the own identity can be questioned, either by one self or by others.
