The Relationship Between the Failure Trap- Strategy, Depressive Symptoms and Alcohol Related Problems in University Students (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka om den teoretiska modellen failure trap- strategin kan förklara alkoholproblematik och depression bland studenter, samt om strategin kan förklara alkoholproblematik ut-över depression. Vi belyser även om strategin bidrar till det dubbelrik-tade sambandet mellan alkoholproblematik och depression. Deltagare var 358 universitetsstudenter vid ett mellanstort svenskt universitet. Deltagarna svarade på en onlinebaserad enkät rörande depressiva symptom, alkoholvanor och användandet av failure trap- strategin. Data analyserades genom korrelations-och regressionsanalyser. Resul-taten visade att failure trap- strategin inte verkar förklara alkoholpro-blematik. Däremot har den en viss betydelse för depressiva symptom bland studenter. Failure trap- strategin verkar inte bidra till sambandet mellan alkoholproblematik och depression.

Abstract [en]

This study aims to examine whether the failure trap- strategy explains alcohol related problems and depressive symptoms among Swedish university students. We also discuss whether the failure trap strategy contributes to the bidirectional relationship between alcohol related problems and depression. Participants were 358 university students at a medium sized Swedish university, who responded to an online survey. Data was analyzed through correlational and regression analyses. Re-sults suggest that the failure trap- strategy does not explain alcohol re-lated problems among university students. However, it might be useful as part of an explanation for depressive symptoms among students. The strategy does not seem to contribute to the relationship between depres-sion and alcohol related problems.
