Abstract [sv]

Huvudsyftet med föreliggande studie är att belysa soldaters upplevelser av stress under

utlandstjänst, samt stress i övergången utlandstjänst till hemkomst med fokus på fysisk

aktivitet och träningsvanor. Vidare var det av intresse att studera soldaters upplevelse av

hjälp/stöd. Studien genomfördes via ett kvalitativt tillvägagångssätt utifrån två

semistrukturerade intervjuguider och två olika intervjutillfällen. Samtliga åtta deltagare var

män mellan 2553

år gamla med erfarenheter från olika typer av förband samt från olika

missioner. Utlandstjänstgöringarna utfördes i länder som Afghanistan, Bosnien och Kosovo.

Upplevd stress under mission beskrevs som rastlöshet vid ledig tid på campen eller en oro

inför uppdrag. Under uppdrag kunde deltagarna uppleva kumulativ stress i ovissheten att

något kan hända dem eller kollegorna. Deltagarna gav uttryck för liknande symptom vid

hemkomst kopplat till stress då rastlöshet under ledigheten hemma beskrev som utmanade.

Fysisk aktivitet visade sig ha en stressreducerande effekt vid rastlöshet och oro under

utlandstjänst samt i övergången utlandstjänst till hemkomst. Dessa fynd kopplas till en

diskussionsdel utifrån föreskrivna referensramar, samt även förslag till framtida forskning

och implikationer.

Abstract [en]

The main purpose of the present study is to illustrate soldiers experinces of stress during

deployment and in the transition from deployment to homecoming with focus on physical

activity, stress and exercise habits. Further on, it was of interest to study the soldiers

experience of help/support. The study was conducted using a qualitative approach from two

semistructured

interviewguides and two interview occasions. The soldiers age were between

2553

years. The soldiers in this study came from various types of units as well as various

deployments that took place in countries such as Afghanistan, Kosovo and

BosniaHercegovina.

Stress during deployment was described as perceived restlessness

during freetime on the camp. During operations could the participants exeperience

cumulative stress wich could be shown as anxiety becausee of the uncertainty that something

could happend to them or their colleagues in the unit. The participants expressed similar

symptoms at the homecoming related to stress as restlessness during the holiday and anxiety.

Physical activity was found to have a stressreducing

effect during deployment and in

transition deployment to homecoming. Results of the study were associated with prescribed

theoretical frames of reference in the discussion. Finally suggestions for future research and

implications are provided.
