A quantitative study about the relationship between life satisfaction and coping strategies of relatives : Web based questionnaire for relatives to individuals with mental illness (English)
Abstract [sv]

Psykisk ohälsa är i dagens samhälle ett växande problem och klassas som en folksjukdom. Bakom dessa individer står ofta anhöriga. Denna grupp får lite utrymme och uppmärksamhet, men som även de känner sig nedvärderade och åtsidosatta på grund av den närståendes problematik. I tidigare studier har anhöriga uttryckt en lägre livstillfredställelse samt en större psykisk och fysisk börda gällande deras familjemedlems problematik jämfört med normen. Anhörigas välmående blir drabbat och de riskerar att själva utveckla psykisk ohälsa.Denna kvantitativa studie undersökte samband mellan livstillfredställelse och problem-, känslofokuserad samt undvikande copingstrategier för anhöriga till individer mer psykisk ohälsa. Studien undersökte även ifall användandet av copingstrategier skiljer sig mellan anhöriga. Detta genomfördes genom en webbaserad enkät med bakgrundsfrågor samt instrumenten SWLS som mäter livstillfredställelse, och CISS som mäter användandet av problem-, känslofokuserade och undvikande copingstrategier.Studien bestod av 90 respondenter som kontaktades via olika anhörighetsföreningar. En multipel regressionsanalys visade ett signifikant samband mellan livstillfredställelse och problemfokuserad copingstrategi. Studien visade dock ingen markant skillnad i användandet av copingstrategier för anhöriga.

Abstract [en]

In today’s society, mental illness is a growing problem and classified as a widespread disease. Behind this individual, there are often relatives. It’s a group who gets little attention and space, and who feels depreciated and slighted because of their dearests problems. In former studies, relatives have expressed a lower life satisfaction, both a mentally and physically burden according to their family member’s problems comparing to the norms. Relative’s wellbeing gets affected and some of them have a risk in developing their own mental illness.This quantitative study examined links between life satisfaction-, task oriented-, emotion focused- and avoidance coping strategies for relatives to people with mental illness. The study also examined if the using of coping strategies is different for relative. It was accomplished thru a web based questionnaire with questions ruling background, and the instruments of SWLS which measure life satisfaction, and CISS which measure task oriented-, emotion focused- and avoidance coping strategies.The study consisted of 90 respondents who were contacted through various relatives associations. A multiple regression analysis showed a significant link between life satisfaction- and task orient coping strategies. The study did not show any prominent difference in using of coping strategies for a relative.
