Sleep issues and coping strategies in female teachers : A survey of female teachers' experienced sleep issues and the relationship with coping strategies (English)
Abstract [sv]

En tvärsnittsstudie genomfördes med syfte att undersöka relationen mellan sömnproblem och copingstrategier. Vidare var syftet även att undersöka om arbetstiden var en prediktor till den upplevda sömnproblematiken. Populationen för undersökningen var kvinnliga lärare inom det svenska skolsystemet. Enkäten lades ut i slutna grupper med koppling till klassundervisning på den sociala medieporten Facebook. Sammanlagt deltog 358 kvinnliga lärare i studien. För att mäta sömnproblem användes mätinstrumentet Insomnia Severity Index, samt mätinstrumentet Brief Cope som avsåg mäta copingstrategier. Vidare fick respondenten själv skriva i antal arbetstimmar per vecka. 

Studiens frågeställning besvarades med två pearsons korrelationskoefficienter mellan sömnproblem och problemfokuserad coping, samt mellan sömnproblem och emotionsfokuserad coping. Vidare utfördes en enkel regressionsanalys med sömnproblem och arbetstid. Resultatet visade ett signifikant negativt samband mellan sömnproblem och problemfokuserad coping, samt ett icke signifikant samband mellan sömnproblem och emotionsfokuserad coping.  Regressionsanalysen visade att arbetstiden var en signifikant prediktor till skattad sömnproblematik.

Slutsatsen som drogs var att lärare som i högre grad använder problemfokuserad coping upplever mindre sömnproblem. Vidare drog slutsatsen att grad av sömnproblem till viss del kan förklaras utifrån arbetstid.

Abstract [en]

A cross-sectional study was conducted to investigate the relationship between sleep issues and coping strategies. Furthermore, the purpose was also to investigate whether working hours were a predictor of the experienced sleep problem. The population for the survey was female teachers in the Swedish school system. The survey was released in closed groups linked to classroom education at the social media portal Facebook. A total of 358 female teachers participated in the study. To measure sleep problems, the Insomnia Severity Index was used, as well as the Brief Cope measuring instrument for measuring coping strategies. Furthermore, the respondent was able to write in number of hours per week.

The study's question was answered with two pears correlation coefficients between sleep problems and problem-focused coping, as well as between sleep problems and emotion-focused coping. Furthermore, a simple regression analysis was carried out with sleep problems and working hours. The result showed a significant negative correlation between sleep problems and problem-focused coping, as well as an insignificant connection between sleep problems and emotion-focused coping. The regression analysis showed that working time was a significant predictor of estimated sleep problems.

The conclusion that was drawn was that teachers who use problem-focused coping to a greater extent experience less sleep issues. Furthermore, it was concluded that the degree of sleep issues can be explained to some extent by working time
