    Finns det ett samband mellan utnyttjandegraden avfriskvårdsförmåner och de anställdas upplevda arbetsmotivation?2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    På många arbetsplatser sker idag olika typer av friskvårdssatsningar i syfte att få friskare medarbetare med hög arbetskapacitet och som är motiverade i sitt arbete. Studiens primära syfte var att undersöka om utnyttjandegraden av friskvårdsförmånerna har en positiv effekt på den upplevda arbetsmotivationen. Författarna ämnade även att sekundärt kartlägga inledningarna till varför de anställda inte utnyttjar friskvårdsförmånerna fullt ut. En enkätstudie genomfördes på en avdelning hos Försäkringskassan i Östersund. Totalt deltog 109 respondenter. Data analyserades med hjälp av korrelationer, t-test, regressionsanalys samt variansanalys. Resultaten visar attutnyttjandegraden av friskvårdsförmåner inte har någon märkbar effekt på den upplevda arbetsmotivationen. De anställda utnyttjar friskvårdsförmånerna i relativt stor utsträckning och den upplevda arbetsmotivationen är förhållandevis hög. Friskvårdsförmånerna bedöms vara en väsentlig del av arbetsförhållandet och kan i enlighet med Herzbergs motivationsteori ses som en hygienfaktor.

    Effects of a Recovery-Focused Intervention for Stress Management: A Randomized Controlled Trial2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    INTRODUCTION

    Stress symptoms, burnout, poor mental health and long-term sick leave related to these are major problems in Sweden and elsewhere. Evidence-based prevention and treatment efforts are lacking. Research indicates that stress related health problems primarily could be conceptualized as deficiencies in recovery responses between stress periods rather than high level of stress responses per se. Therefore it is relevant to examine whether it is effective to intervene the recovery behavior – instead of the stress behavior - of people with stress symptoms.

    OBJECTIVES

    The primary purpose of this study was to investigate if a behavioral oriented recovery management intervention could enhance “recovery behaviors” and experiences of recovery and reduce stress related ill health.

    METHODS A group based intervention program focusing exclusively on “recovery behavior” in everyday life (earlier developed and tested in two pilot studies) was evaluated in an experimental group study. The intervention consisted of seven group sessions of 2.5 hours over a period of approximately 10 weeks supplemented by an internet based treatment support system. Self- referred subjects with scores above 24.4 on the Perceived stress scale were randomized to the intervention (n=26) or a waiting-list (n=33).

    RESUL T

    Statistically significant and clinically relevant effects were achieved for the intervention group compare to the waiting-list group: recovery behaviors and experiences of recovery were increased, and levels of perceived stress, worry, anxiety, depression and exhaustion were decreased.

    DISCUSSION These results are in line with two previous pilot studies that we have done. A behavioral and recovery oriented intervention seems to be effective to increase the recovery of the individual and decrease stress related ill health. There are reasons to continue to explore the potential of recovery-oriented interventions for example for different populations (such as people with more extensive clinical health problems) and in different contexts.

    The reliability and factorial validity of the Swedish version of the Recovery Experience Questionnaire2018In: Nordic Psychology, ISSN 1901-2276, E-ISSN 1904-0016, p. 1-10Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Recent research has indicated that recovery from work stress and effort might be crucial for health and well-being. Thus, a valid measurement of recovery becomes important. The main purpose of the present study was to empirically evaluate and seeking support for the hypothesized four-factor model of the Swedish version of Recovery Experience Questionnaire (REQ). The total sample (N = 680) was randomly split into two subsamples. The first subsample was used for finding the best-fitting model using an exploratory factor analysis and the second subsample was used to test the a priori model using confirmatory factor analysis. The results support the proposed four-factor structure of the scale for both males and females. Additionally, apart from high reliability estimates, this instrument proved to have good convergent and discriminant validity for all four factors. Implications for the use of the REQ in conjunction with recovery-focused interventions were discussed, as were limitations such as low response rate.

    A cognitive behavior therapy-based intervention among poorly controlled adult type 1 diabetes patients--a randomized controlled trial.2009In: Patient Education and Counseling, ISSN 0738-3991, E-ISSN 1873-5134, Vol. 77, no 1, p. 72-80Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    OBJECTIVE: To examine the impact of a Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)-based intervention on HbA(1c), self-care behaviors and psychosocial factors among poorly controlled adult type 1 diabetes patients. METHODS: Ninety-four type 1 diabetes patients were randomly assigned to either an intervention group or a control group. The intervention was based on CBT and was mainly delivered in group format, but individual sessions were also included. All subjects were provided with a continuous glucose monitoring system (CGMS) during two 3-day periods. HbA(1c), self-care behaviors and psychosocial factors were measured up to 48 weeks. RESULTS: Significant differences were observed with respect to HbA(1c) (P<0.05), well-being (P<0.05), diabetes-related distress (P<0.01), frequency of blood glucose testing (P<0.05), avoidance of hypoglycemia (P<0.01), perceived stress (P<0.05), anxiety (P<0.05) and depression (P<0.05), all of which showed greater improvement in the intervention group compared with the control group. A significant difference (P<0.05) was registered with respect to non-severe hypoglycemia, which yielded a higher score in the intervention group. CONCLUSION: This CBT-based intervention appears to be a promising approach to diabetes self-management. PRACTICE IMPLICATIONS: Diabetes care may benefit from applying tools commonly used in CBT. For further scientific evaluation in clinical practice, there is a need for specially educated diabetes care teams, trained in the current approach, as well as cooperation between diabetes care teams and psychologists trained in CBT.

    Experience from a behavioural medicine intervention among poorly controlled adult type 1 diabetes patients2009In: Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice, ISSN 0168-8227, E-ISSN 1872-8227, Vol. 84, no 1, p. 76-83Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim To describe experience from a behavioural medicine intervention among poorly controlled adult type 1 diabetes patients, in terms of feasibility, predictors and associations of improved glycaemic control. Methods Data were collected on 94 poorly controlled adult type 1 diabetes patients who were randomised to a study evaluating the effects of a behavioural medicine intervention. Statistics covered descriptive and comparison analysis. Backward stepwise regression models were used for predictive and agreement analyses involving socio-demographic and medical factors, as well as measures of diabetes self-efficacy (DES), diabetes locus of control (DLOC), self-care activities (SDSCA), diabetes-related distress (Swe-PAID-20), fear of hypoglycaemia (HFS), well-being (WBQ), depression (HAD) and perceived stress (PSS). Results The participation rate in the study was 41% and attrition was 24%. Of those patients actually participating in the behavioural medicine intervention, 13% withdrew. From the regression models no predictors or associations of improvement in HbA1c were found. Conclusions The programme proved to be feasible in terms of design and methods. However, no clear pattern was found regarding predictors or associations of improved metabolic control as the response to the intervention. Further research in this area is called for.

    Fear of hypoglycaemia in adults with Type 1 diabetes2010In: Diabetic Medicine, ISSN 0742-3071, E-ISSN 1464-5491, Vol. 27, no 28, p. 1151-1158Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aims The aim of this studywas toexamine the fearof hypoglycaemiaand its association with demographic anddisease-specificvariables in a large and unselective population of adult patients with Type 1 diabetes.

    Methods Questionnaires were sent by post to all patients with Type 1 diabetes who were identified in the local diabetesregistries of two hospitals in Stockholm, Sweden (n = 1387). Fear of hypoglycaemia was measured using the SwedishHypoglycaemia Fear Survey, theWorry subscale and theAloneness subscale.Demographic variables and disease-specific factorswere collected from patients’ self reports and medical records. Univariate analysis and multiple stepwise linear regressionanalysis were used in the statistical analyses of the data.

    Results Seven hundred and sixty-four (55%) patients participated in the study (mean age 43.3 years andmeanHbA1c 7.0%,normal < 5.0%). The Hypoglycaemia Fear Survey - Worry subscale was significantly associated with frequency of severehypoglycaemia, number of symptoms during mild hypoglycaemia, gender, hypoglycaemic symptoms during hyperglycaemiaand hypoglycaemic unawareness. The Hypoglycaemia Fear Survey - Aloneness subscale was significantly associated withfrequency of severe hypoglycaemia, number of symptoms during mild hypoglycaemia, gender, frequency of mildhypoglycaemia, HbA1c, hypoglycaemic unawareness and visits to the emergency room because of severe hypoglycaemia. Fear of hypoglycaemia proved to be more prevalent in females and indicated a different pattern between genders in relation tofactors associated with fear of hypoglycaemia.

    Conclusions This study identifies the frequency of severe hypoglycaemia as themost important factor associated with fear ofhypoglycaemia. Moreover, for the first time,we document gender differences in fear of hypoglycaemia, suggesting that femalesare more affected by fear of hypoglycaemia than men.

    Fear of hypoglycemia: relationship to hypoglycemic risk and psychological factors2015In: Acta Diabetologica, ISSN 0940-5429, E-ISSN 1432-5233, Vol. 52, no 3, p. 581-589Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The major aims of this study were to examine (1) the association between fear of hypoglycemia (FOH) in adults with type 1 diabetes with demographic, psychological (anxiety and depression), and disease-specific clinical factors (hypoglycemia history and unawareness, A(1c)), including severe hypoglycemia (SH), and (2) differences in patient subgroups categorized by level of FOH and risk of SH. Questionnaires were mailed to 764 patients with type 1 diabetes including the Swedish translation of the Hypoglycemia Fear Survey (HFS) and other psychological measures including the Perceived Stress Scale, Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale, Anxiety Sensitivity Index, Social Phobia Scale, and Fear of Complications Scale. A questionnaire to assess hypoglycemia history was also included and A(1c) measures were obtained from medical records. Statistical analyses included univariate approaches, multiple stepwise linear regressions, Chi-square t tests, and ANOVAs. Regressions showed that several clinical factors (SH history, frequency of nocturnal hypoglycemia, self-monitoring) were significantly associated with FOH but R (2) increased from 16.25 to 39.2 % when anxiety measures were added to the model. When patients were categorized by level of FOH (low, high) and SH risk (low, high), subgroups showed significant differences in non-diabetes-related anxiety, hypoglycemia history, self-monitoring, and glycemic control. There is a strong link between FOH and non-diabetes-related anxiety, as well as hypoglycemia history. Comparison of patient subgroups categorized according to level of FOH and SH risk demonstrated the complexity of FOH and identified important differences in psychological and clinical variables, which have implications for clinical interventions.

    En studie om arbetsmotivation bland personal inom dagligvaruhandeln2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien var att undersöka vilka faktorer som personalen inom dagligvaruhandeln upplevde som viktiga för arbetsmotivationen utifrån Herzberg`s tvåfaktorteori. Studien undersökte även om det fanns samband mellan inre faktorer, yttre faktorer och personlighetsegenskaper. En enkätstudie genomfördes där 74 medarbetare inom dagligvaruhandeln i Mellansverige deltog. Ett t-test visade att skillnaden mellan inre och yttre faktorer inte var signifikant. En korrelationsanalys visade på samband mellan inre faktorer, yttre faktorer och personlighetsegenskaper. Regressionsanalyser visade på att 18 procent av variationen i inre och yttre faktorer kan förklaras av personlighetsegenskaper. Den visade även på signifikanta samband mellan inre faktorer och personlighetsegenskaperna öppenhet och målmedvetenhet. Ytterligare ett signifikant samband fanns mellan yttre faktorer och personlighetsegenskaperna vänlighet och känslomässig instabilitet. Författarna drar slutsatsen att studiens resultat kan fungera som ett underlag för dagligvaruhandeln i deras beslut gällande motivationshöjande investeringar.

    FJÄLLETS KÄNSLOMÄSSIGA OCH SYMBOLISKA BETYDELSE FÖR DET SAMISKA FOLKET2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Kulturer bestäms och formas av de symboler de använder och vördar och en människas identitet formas delvis av att hon initieras i en kulturs specifika symbolsystem. Symbolerna vänder sig till både våra intellekt, känslor samt våra andliga liv. Genom att använda Pietikainens modifiering av Jungs teori kring arketyper till att förstås som symboliska former så kan ett beskrivande värde uppnås gällande att närma sig människans mentala processer. Uppsatsens syfte är att visa exempel som illustrerar och kan öka förståelsen för vilken symbolisk och känslomässig betydelse fjället har för det samiska folket, i det här fallet representerat av fem personer med samiskt ursprung.   Utifrån ett hermeneutiskt perspektiv har intervjuer gjorts och 17 teman utkristalliserats varav fyra visat sig vara framträdande. Fjällets känslomässiga och symboliska betydelse verkar främst vara kulturellt betingat och fungerar som ett gemensamt minne i den samiska kulturen, utvecklat över generationer. Ett minne som tillskriver fjället starka personifierade egenskaper.

    A "dry eye" for victims of violence: effects of playing a violent video game on pupillary dilation to victims and on aggressive behavior2015In: Psychology of violence, ISSN 2152-0828, Vol. 5, no 2, p. 199-208Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: The present experiment analyzed the effects of playing a violent video game on player’s sensitivity to victimized people by measuring the involuntary pupil dilation responses (PDRs) during a passive picture viewing paradigm and examining the mediating role of PDR on aggression. Method: Participants (N = 135) were randomly assigned to play a violent video game or a nonviolent video game. The participants’ PDRs were then recorded while they were exposed to pictures of alleged victims of violence displayed in negative, neutral, and positive contexts. A competitive reaction time task was also used to measure aggression. Results: Participants in the violent game condition demonstrated both a lower PDR to the victims of violence in a negative circumstances and greater aggression than participants in the nonviolent game condition. Lower PDR to victims displayed in negative context mediated the relationship between violent game play and aggression. Conclusion: The negative effects of playing violent games are a societal concern. Our results indicate that a single violent gaming session can reduce the player’s involuntary PDRs to pictures of victimized people in negative context and increase participant aggression, a new relevant finding that should encourage further research in this area.

    Are the effects of unreal violent video games pronounced when playing with a virtual reality system?2008In: Aggressive Behavior, ISSN 0096-140X, E-ISSN 1098-2337, Vol. 34, no 5, p. 521-538Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study was conducted to analyze the short‐term effects of violent electronic games, played with or without a virtual reality (VR) device, on the instigation of aggressive behavior. Physiological arousal (heart rate (HR)), priming of aggressive thoughts, and state hostility were also measured to test their possible mediation on the relationship between playing the violent game (VG) and aggression. The participants—148 undergraduate students—were randomly assigned to four treatment conditions: two groups played a violent computer game (Unreal Tournament), and the other two a non‐violent game (Motocross Madness), half with a VR device and the remaining participants on the computer screen. In order to assess the game effects the following instruments were used: a BIOPAC System MP100 to measure HR, an Emotional Stroop task to analyze the priming of aggressive and fear thoughts, a self‐report State Hostility Scale to measure hostility, and a competitive reaction‐time task to assess aggressive behavior. The main results indicated that the violent computer game had effects on state hostility and aggression. Although no significant mediation effect could be detected, regression analyses showed an indirect effect of state hostility between playing a VG and aggression.

    Violent computer games and their effects on state hostility and psychophysiological arousal2006In: Aggressive Behavior, ISSN 0096-140X, E-ISSN 1098-2337, Vol. 32, no 2, p. 146-158Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    An experimental study was conducted to investigate the impact of violent computer games on state hostility, state anxiety and arousal. Participants were undergraduate students, aged from 18 to 25 years. Before the experimental sessions, participants filled in self-report measures concerning their video game habits and were also pre-tested for aggressiveness and trait anxiety. Physiological responses (heart rate and skin conductance) were measured during the experiment. After playing, information about state hostility and state anxiety was collected. The results showed that participants who played the violent game reported significantly higher state hostility, and support the assumption that an aggressive personality moderates the effect of playing a violent game on state hostility.

    Looking at the (mis) fortunes of others while listening to music2014In: Psychology of Music, ISSN 0305-7356, E-ISSN 1741-3087, Vol. 42, no 2, p. 251-268Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The present study examined whether eye movements when regarding pictures of other people in fortunate (positive) and unfortunate (negative) circumstances are influenced by background music. Sixty-three participants were randomly assigned to three background music conditions (happy music, sad music, or no music) where pairs of negative-positive pictures were shown. Participants' eye movements were recorded throughout the experiment to assess distinct phases of attentional processes, i.e., initial orienting to, and subsequent engagement with, visual scenes. We found that these attentional processes were not uniformly influenced by the music. The type of background music had no effect on initial visual attention but played a relevant role in guiding subsequent gaze behaviour by maintaining attention in a mood-congruent fashion: sad music enhanced attentional bias to visual images of others in unfortunate circumstances, whereas happy music contributed to longer gazes at images of others in fortunate circumstances. These results support the notion that attention is affected by background music and reflected by gaze behaviour.

    Effects of Playing Violent Computer Games on Emotional Desensitization and Aggressive Behavior2011In: Journal of Applied Social Psychology, ISSN 0021-9029, E-ISSN 1559-1816, Vol. 41, no 8, p. 1900-1925Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study analyzed the effects of playing a violent computer game on emotional desensitization and aggressive behavior. College students (N = 58) were randomly assigned to play a violent game (VG) or a nonviolent game (NVG), and then were exposed to a set of emotional pictures. Participants' physiological responses were recorded, and the Self‐Assessment Manikin scale was used to assess affective valence and arousal while viewing the pictures. Participants were then asked to replay the game, after which aggressive behavior was measured. Participants' violent game habits (VGH) were also measured. We found that VG playing interacted with participants' VGH to influence aggression, and that self‐reported valence mediated this effect by lowering the feelings of pleasure and displeasure toward emotional stimuli.
