Abstract [en]

There has been a dramatic increase in long-term sick leave in Sweden, which largely depends on occupational stress. Occupational stress applies particularly in relationship-intensive jobs, which means that the individual works with a lot of contact or responsibility for other people. Research has shown that attachment is relevant to the choice of coping style and perception of stress in the workplace. The aim of the present study was to investigate the relationships between attachment patterns, coping styles and occupational stress in relationship-intensive jobs and to extend previous studies by adding the variables age, work experience and education in relation to coping styles and occupational stress. The study was in quantitative form in which 186 participants from various relationship-intensive jobs across Sweden participated. The results showed that insecure-anxiety and insecure-avoidance attachment was correlated with a higher level of occupational stress. The results also showed that the higher the use of problem-focused coping style, the lower the level of occupational stress. The study’s results contradicted previous research, in the way that emotion-focused coping style had a negative correlation with insecure-avoidance attachment and occupational stress. Finally, the study's results showed that the higher the age of the individual, the lower the level of occupational stress. The result of this study is important for working-life research and highlights the importance of attachment patterns and coping styles effect on occupational stress.

 

 

Abstract [sv]

Det har skett en dramatisk ökning av långtidssjukskrivningar i Sverige som till stor del beror på arbetsrelaterad stress. Den arbetsrelaterade stressen gäller framförallt relationsintensiva yrken som innebär att individen arbetar med mycket kontakt eller ansvar för andra människor. Forskning har visat att anknytning har betydelse för valet av copingstil och upplevelsen av stress i arbetslivet. Syftet med den aktuella studien var att undersöka sambanden mellan anknytningsmönster, copingstilar och arbetsrelaterad stress inom relationsintensiva yrken samt att utvidga tidigare studier genom att lägga till variablerna ålder, arbetslivserfarenhet och utbildningsnivå i relation till copingstilar och arbetsrelaterad stress. Studien var i kvantitativ form där 186 deltagare från olika relationsintensiva yrken runt om i Sverige deltog. Resultatet visade att otrygg-ångest och otrygg-undvikande anknytning var korrelerat med en högre grad av arbetsrelaterad stress. Studiens resultat visade även att ju högre användning av problemfokuserad copingstil desto lägre grad av arbetsrelaterad stress. Studiens resultat gick emot tidigare forskning då emotionsfokuserad copingstil hade ett negativt samband med otrygg-undvikande anknytning och arbetsrelaterad stress. Till sist visade studiens resultat att ju högre ålder individen har desto lägre grad av arbetsrelaterad stress. Studiens resultat är viktigt för arbetslivsforskning och belyser betydelsen av att ta hänsyn till anknytningsmönstret och copingstilarnas påverkan på arbetsrelaterad stress.
