Emerging adulthood and perceived stress among third year high school students (English)
Abstract [sv]

Den industrialiserade världen har de senaste årtiondena genomgått förändringar vilket har bidragit till att en ny tidsperiod uppkommit. Tidsperioden benämns enligt forskaren Arnett (2007) som Emerging Adulthood och har den svenska översättningen vuxenblivande. Perioden sträcker sig mellan åren 18-25. Stress är en känsla av press som för stunden inte är hanterbar och stressnivån har under de senaste åren ökat markant hos gymnasieelever. Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka om vuxenblivande samt stress skiljer hos elever som läser ett yrkesförberedande respektive ett högskoleförberedande program. Studien syftar också till att undersöka om stress är signifikant relaterat till vuxenblivande. I studien deltog 173 gymnasieelever som gick tredje året på gymnasieskolor i Örebro och Västerås. Deltagarna svarade på en enkät om vuxenblivande och upplevd stress. Resultatet i studien visade att de yrkesförberedande eleverna upplevde en högre grad av fokus på andra och att de högskoleförberedande eleverna upplevde en högre nivå av instabilitet och stress.

Abstract [en]

The industrialized world has changed in recent decades, which have contributed to a new period in life. The time period is, according to researcher Arnett (2007), called Emerging Adulthood. The period is ranging between ages 18-25. Stress is a feeling of pressure that the individual for the moment can’t handle and stress level has in recent years increased among high school students. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether adulthood and stress differ among students who read a vocational or a university-preparing program. The study also aims to investigate whether stress is significantly related to emerging adulthood. The study involved 173 Swedish high school students from Örebro and Västerås. The participants answered a questionnaire about emerging adulthood and perceived stress. The results of the study showed that the vocational students experienced a greater degree of focus on others and that the university-preparing students experienced a greater level of instability and stress.
