Abstract [sv]

Föreningsengagemang, sociala relationer och stress är ofta omnämnda tillsammans och relateras ofta till varandra. Eftersom befintlig forskning är begränsad vad gäller sambanden dem emellan, var det av intresse att undersöka dessa. Syftet med studien var att kartlägga föreningsengagemang bland högskolestudenter på en högskola i södra Sverige samt undersöka eventuella samband mellan föreningsengagemang, sociala relationer och stress. Metoden för studien var deduktiv med ett kvantitativt angreppssätt. Enkäter med frågor om föreningsengagemang, stress och sociala relationer genomfördes på 230 studenter. Att avsluta snarare än att påbörja föreningsengagemang var vanligare vid högskolestudier. Aktivitet i idrottsförening innebar lägre grad av upplevd stress. Studenter som var tillfreds med sitt umgänge, upplevde att de har vänner som visar stort intresse för det hon/ han gör samt umgås dagligen med vänner upplever lägre grad av stress. En slutsats kan vara att börja studera på högskola har en negativ inverkan på föreningsengagemang. Att vara aktiv i en idrottsförening samt att ha goda sociala relationer har en positiv inverkan på studenters upplevelse av stress. Denna nya kunskap kan användas vid arbete med och rådgivning till stressade studenter. Studien kan även informera högskolor om att fysiska aktiviteter genom skolan kan ha en positiv inverkan för studenters psykiska hälsa.

Abstract [en]

Extracurricular participation, social relationships and stress is often mentioned together and are related to each other. Because of insufficient research of the correlation between these three, there was an interest to study this subject. The aim for this study was to investigate the degree of extracurricular participation among college students and also to investigate potential correlations between extracurricular participation, social relationships and stress. The method for this study was deductive whit a quantitative approach. A questionnaire about extracurricular participation, social relationships and stress was performed among 230 college students. The result showed that withdrawal from extracurricular activities was more common among students than to begin. Students who were active in sport associations experienced lower stress than students that did not participate in sport associations. The result also showed correlations between the student’s satisfaction with their friends and how they reported stress. Students who felt that their friends show them a big interest also reported lower stress. Also students who meet their friends on daily basis reported lower stress. A conclusion could be that entering college has a negative influence on extracurricular participation. Involvement in sport activities and to have satisfying social relationships has a positive influence on students stress. This knowledge can be used for work and guidance of stressed college students. This study can also inform colleges that physical extracurricular participation can have a positive influence on student’s mental health.
