    The absent meaning of concrete form in theory of architecture1996Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this dissertation is to discuss architecture as forming practical conditions for our way-of-being, and to clarify that which prevents traditional theory of architecture from dealing with these practical conditions as such.

    The dissertation investigates a theoretical problem concerning the nature of the relation between human being and the built environment. The main question is: In what way can we treat architecture as concrete material form, involved in such a way in our practical being, that it contributes to the maintenance and development of our way-of-being? A related question is: Why is this practical meaning usually so hard to treat in theory? By comparing and discussing a selection of theoretical works marked by their turning away, in different ways, from the actual concrete material form (towards something else), the traditional embrace of a Cartesian concept of human being is found to be what prevents theory of architecture from treating a practical meaning of architecture. The persistence of this concept is also found to be strengthened by the influences of closely related practices in which the use of architectural images, as a means to certain knowledges, play a vital role.

    The relevance of academic writing in design education: academic writing as a tool for structuring reasons2008In: Journal of Writing in Creative Practice, ISSN 1753-5190, E-ISSN 1753-5204, Vol. 1, no 2, p. 151-160Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper focuses on the current function of academic writing for design education within Sweden. It argues that in its present form academic writing is used to explain the final result by accounting for the process, but it would be much more useful to designers if the form were modified to fit the purpose of justifying a design solution. Interpretations of the academic report as chronologically telling about the process have, in Swedish design education, resulted in muddled texts where the final results are absent or hidden in the lengthy description of the process. The academic report fulfils its function because it is a logical construction. Its form includes explication of the research-process because this process determines the reliability and/or validity of the new knowledge arrived at. An excellent design-process does not, however, guarantee excellent design: a design-solution is justified only by solving the problem. Adjusted to this purpose, academic writing could become a useful tool, helping students to grasp which explicit reasons and grounds may support their definition of the problem, outline how their design may be a solution to it, and also show where reasons and grounds may prove to be poor. Writing, in a modified academic form, can become a useful and integrated tool in design education, primarily if the intellectual skill developed through this writing is useful also for the practitioner.

    Abstract [sv]

    Det är viktigt för tonåringen att ha ett eget rum, anses det i dag. Men varför är det så viktigt? Varför behövs tonårsrummet? Utifrån ett arkitekturperspektiv, där användning och funktion fokuseras, reflekterar Cecilia Häggström kring tonårsrummets betydelse i vår kultur. Vad är det som artikuleras eller formas i användningen av tonårsrummet? Kan man se rummet som ett redskap - och i så fall för vad?

    Skillnader i upplevelsen av den psykosociala arbetsmiljön: En explorativ studie av anställningsform och arbetslivserfarenhet med särskilt fokus på kvinnors upplevelse2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studien undersökte sambandet mellan psykosociala arbetsmiljöfaktorer, anställningsform och arbetslivserfarenhet. Undersökningen belyste även hur kvinnor inom ett verksamhetsområde i en kommun upplever sin psykosociala arbetsmiljö. Ett bekvämlighetsurval gjordes (n=130, 122 kvinnor och 8 män) och instrumentet som användes var en förkortad version av QPS Nordic 34 + (Arbetslivsinstitutet, 2000) där Cronbach’s alfanivån låg mellan 0,71 – 0,83 på de subskalor som användes. Envägs (One-Way) ANOVA visade signifikanta skillnader mellan tidsbegränsat – och tillsvidareanställda gällande arbetskrav (p=0,002). Analysresultatet visade även att arbetslivserfarenhet har en signifikant effekt i samband med arbetskrav (p = 0,04). De kvinnliga respondenterna skattade arbetskrav (M=3,06), social interaktion (M=4,06) och kontroll (M=2,89). Slutsatsen blev att de som har en tillsvidareanställning och mer arbetslivserfarenhet upplever högre arbetskrav och att de kvinnliga respondenterna inte anses ha ett ”spänt eller iso-spänt - arbete” enligt Karasek och Theorells (1990) krav, kontroll och stödmodell.

    “It’s everywhere!”: Thoughts and reflections about pornography among young people in Sweden2006In: Scandinavian Journal of Caring Sciences, ISSN 0283-9318, E-ISSN 1471-6712, Vol. 20, no 4, p. 386-393Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Pornography is one of the most sought-after topics on the Internet, and is easily available for anyone, including children and adolescents. At youth centres, nurse-midwives have noticed that young people have different kinds of questions about sexual practices compared with a few years ago. The aim of this study was to gain an understanding of thoughts and reflections about pornography consumption, and its possible influence on sexual practices, among young women and men. The staff at a youth centre in a city in central Sweden asked the visitors if they had seen pornography and if they wanted to be interviewed about their experiences. Ten young women and eight men, aged 16–23 years, participated. In-depth interviews were performed and open-ended questions about pornography and sexuality were posed. The interviews were tape-recorded and transcribed verbatim. Data were analysed according to grounded theory. The core category ‘Living with the current sexual norm’ depicted how pornography created sexual expectations and demands, for instance, to perform certain sexual acts. The informants expressed contradictory feelings towards pornography and felt that sexuality was separated from intimacy. A moral attitude was described and examples of stereotypic gender roles were given. To deal with the current sexual norm, informants had different individual handling strategies and attitudes to pornography, namely liberal, normalization, distance, feminist or conservative. Limitations of this study were the small sample size and that results from a qualitative research study cannot be generalized. The results contribute to an understanding of how pornographic material can influence young peoples’ thoughts, reflections and sexual behaviour. This indicates the importance, for personnel at youth centres and schools, to discuss sexual behaviour and how sexuality is portrayed in pornographic material with young people.

    Abstract [en]

    This study aims to investigate the effects of a literacy program. Focus lies on studying factors affecting school participation, examine whether participating schools have different results and explore the expe-riences of literacy developers regarding changes in teaching, teacher competence and student achievement. The survey is based on two groups: eight schools that participated and eight schools that did not. Data come from the National Agency databases and from a questionnaire addressed to the school literacy developers. An educational interaction model provides the theoretical framework. The study shows that participating schools have more students, are multilingual environments and recruit students whose parents have shorter education than non-participating schools. Results for grades in Swedish in grade 9 fluctuate and are difficult to interpret. The schools that participated have an increase in average merit rating and the proportion eligi-ble for upper secondary schools national programs.

    “We are ready for a new energy future”: En kvalitativ analys om hur Vattenfall kommunicerar CSR på YouTube.2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Consumers' demands regarding how companies should engage in social and environmental issues are becoming increasingly stringent. At the same time, research show that companies are spending more resources than ever before on the same issues, but despite this, companies' communication about society and the environment is fairly unexplored. Few articles in the field (Corporate Social Responsibility, CSR) chart corporate communication around Agenda 2030 and a third lacks theoretical perspective, which is a major concern for the development of theorizing the phenomenon.

    The purpose of this study is to help fill this research gap and to help theorize how companies communicate CSR on YouTube. This is done by analyzing the state-owned energy company Vattenfall. The study examines which focus areas Vattenfall focus on in their videos and how these are communicated through the design.

    The thesis results show that Vattenfall focuses its CSR communication on environmental responsibility. The empirical data has a clear link to environmental responsibility and is permeated by values ​​that can be linked to social responsibility, while it is only possible to see the hint of financial responsibility.

    Redovisning av CRI hos Tunable White-armaturer: En undersökning av armaturtillverkares specifikation av Tunable white-armaturer2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Tunable white luminaires today form a large part of the market and are expected to increase further in the upcoming years. As many manufacturers today produce and market their own solutions to create a dynamic light, it can be hard to know what quality these solutions have and how well the technical specification is. The purpose of this study were to investigate whether the information to the user is sufficient and whether the presented data of tunable white luminaires is correct. This study is based on two parts. An experimental study where five tunable white luminaires CRI (color rendering) were measured between different CCT levels (color temperature) and then compared these to what providers have specified on their websites. The second part was a survey was conducted to 144 lighting designers based in Sweden, 52 of whom chose to answer the questionnaire. The questions concerned the presented information of tunable white luminaires as well as the importance of a good light quality focusing on CRI. The results from the authors experimental survey showed that all tunable white luminaires that where tested are changing in CRI under different color temperature intervals. The biggest difference that was measured was on manufacturer 3 where 9 CRI shifted between 2700K-6000K. A comparison could be made and showed that two of five of the suppliers specifications did not match with the authors measurements. By analyzing the answers from the survey, some conclusions could be drawn. There were very different opinions regarding the technical specifications of tunable white luminaires. Some felt that it is enough as it is today, while others felt that more information was needed. The majority considered it very important to have a good CRI when selecting tunable white luminaires in their projects. One could also see that many lighting designers wanted to present color reproduction in TM-30-15 instead of the CRI method or to present CRI at given color temperatures. What can be determined by this study is that there is a tendency for some luminaire suppliers to have worse CRI than presented. This study only measured tunable white fixtures from five companies operating in Sweden and only at 100% luminosity. However, the authors consider that this study could lead to a discussion about better specifications for tunable white luminaires, as well as giving the reader an increased understanding of the complexity of the subject.

    Miljö, vad är det?: Förskolebarns uppfattningar om miljö, natur och miljöproblem2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien var att undersöka hur barn i förskolan uppfattar miljö, natur och miljöproblem. Mil-jöarbete är i högsta grad aktuellt i förskolan då det står i läroplanen att det ska vara en stor del av verk-samheten (Skolverket, 2010). Nio barn i åldern fem till sex år från två förskolor i olika kommuner var med i studien. Vi använde oss av halvstrukturerade kvalitativa intervjuer.

    Resultatet visade att miljö var ett okänt begrepp för barnen, men däremot var begreppet natur mer känt för dem. Framförallt beskrev barnen naturen i termer av komponenter som träd, blommor, växter och djur. Naturen sågs även som en plats att vara i då människor och djur är i behov av naturen genom till exempel mat och boplats. Barnen talade också om att det skulle vara rent i naturen och beskrev även samband i naturen, genom exempelvis solljusets betydelse för växtligheten. Begreppet miljöproblem var bara känt av ett av barnen, men alla hade uppfattningar om vad som är positivt respektive negativt för djur, människor och växter. Dessa uppfattningar tolkade vi som att de hade att göra med avverkning, luftföroreningar och nedskräpning samt hur det går att förebygga dessa problem.

    "Fast ifall det är små grejer som inte riktigt spelar någon roll, då kan eleverna bestämma": En studie om elevers upplevelser av elevinflytande i skolan2016Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Den svenska skolan ska vila på demokratins grund samt förmedla och förankra respekt i de demokratiska värderingar som samhället vilar på. Genom undervisningen ska eleverna även utveckla kunskaper om demokratins principer och utveckla sin förmåga att påverka, ta ansvar och arbeta i demokratiska former för att bli ansvarstagande och aktiva medborgare i samhället. Det demokratifostrande uppdraget framhålls särskilt tydligt i kursplanen för samhällskunskap. Där tydliggörs att undervisningen ska syfta till att eleverna utvecklar kunskaper om hur individen och samhället påverkar varandra och bidra till att eleverna utvecklar förtrogenhet för demokratiska processer och arbetssätt. Samtidigt som elevinflytande är en del i skolans demokratifostrande uppdrag så är det även en rättighet, vilket innebär att eleverna successivt ska ges ett allt större inflytande över sin utbildning och det inre arbetet i skolan.

    Forskning visar att även om det på skolor finns ambitioner för elevinflytande så finns det olika faktorer som bidrar till att elevernas möjligheter att vara delaktiga och utöva inflytande i verksamheten begränsas. Det gäller att eleverna har både de förmågor och den vilja som krävs för att kunna utöva elevinflytande. Läraren, de andra eleverna och klassrumsmiljön är några av de faktorer som påverkar elevernas delaktighet och möjlighet till inflytande. Syftet med denna studie var att genom intervjuer undersöka hur elever i årskurs 6 upplever sitt elevinflytande i skolan. John Dewey och pragmatismen utgjorde teorin på vilken studien baserades. Sex elever intervjuades och utifrån ett hermeneutiskt angreppssätt tolkades materialet för att skapa en förståelse för elevernas uppfattningar. Intresset låg i att ur ett elevperspektiv undersöka vilka former av inflytande som förekommer och vad eleverna upplever att de får vara med och påverka. I studiens resultat redogör eleverna för olika former av delaktighet när de beskriver sitt inflytande i skolan. Det är främst de formella formerna av elevinflytande som utgör de forum där eleverna uppfattar att de är med och påverkar, och då oftast gällande frågor som rör den egna klassen så som klassresa eller disco, men sällan undervisningen. Vidare framkommer av resultatet en betoning av lärarnas auktoritet i beslutsprocesser som rör undervisning och andra betydande frågor.

    Investigation of the elimination process of a multimodal polymer-shelled contrast agent in rats using ultrasound and transmission electron microscopy2015In: Biomedical Spectroscopy and Imaging, ISSN 2212-8794, Vol. 4, no 1, p. 81-93Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: A novel polymer-shelled contrast agent (CA) with multimodal imaging and target specific potential was developed recently and tested for its acoustical properties using different in-vitro setups.

    OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate the elimination of three types of the novel polymer-shelled CA, one unmodified and two shell modified versions, in rats.

    METHODS: The blood elimination time was estimated by measuring the image intensity, from ultrasound images of the common carotid artery, over time after a bolus injection of the three types of the novel CA. The commercially available CA SonoVue was used as a reference. The subcellular localization of the three CAs was investigated using transmission electron microscopy.

    RESULTS: The ultrasound measurements indicated a blood half-life of 17–85 s for the different types of the novel CA, which was significant longer than the blood half-life time for SonoVue. Additionally, CAs were exclusively found in the circulatory system, either taken up by, or found in the vicinity of macrophages.

    CONCLUSIONS: Compared to the commercially available CA SonoVue, the blood circulation times for the three types of the novel polymer-shelled CA were prolonged. Moreover, macrophages were suggested to be responsible for the elimination of the CA.

    Garantier kontra due diligence vid företagsförvärv: Särskilt om säljarens och köparens ansvar2010Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    The regulation of the areas of responsibility of the seller and the buyer and the definition of the location of risk in the contract of acquisition is of a greatest importance during a process of business transfer. It is essential to predict and identify the risks already at the moment of conclusion of the contract due to the reason of the fact of legal certainty. It always is the interest of both parties to, as far as possible, carefully regulate the conditions and the formulation of the contract.

    The purpose of this paper is to examine the interaction and the result of the fact that the seller introduces warranties in the contract versus the due diligence investigation performed by the buyer prior to the content of the contract is reached. The basis of the discussion is concentrated on the questions of the allocation of the risk between the parties, the rules in the Swedish sale of Goods Act about the obligation of the buyer to investigate the object of the contract, the duty to give the relevant information of the seller, and even the general duty of loyalty imposed on the contracting parties.

    The fundamental basis for the regulation of the contract is the definition of the defect of the object of acquisition and the reasonable expectations of the buyer regarding the object. The due diligence and the implementation of warranties in the contract may significate that the risks are regulated and the reasonable expectations are stated which leads to the predictability and certainty for the parties so that the parties can be able to avoid the risks in the future. I suggest that the due diligence should be an absolute duty to investigate the object of acquisition because it could reduce the number of future disputes between the contracting parties. The due diligence is a proactive way to identify and quantify risk. The warranties are however a reactive way of trying to allocate the risk. Finally there is no competition between the due diligence and the warranties rather they compose a complement to each other.

    Teknik för delaktighet i aktivitet och samhälle för personer med dövblindhet2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Det är allas rätt att fritt delta i samhället men att kunna ta del av samhällslivet är inte en självklarhet för alla. Personer med dövblindhet kan uppleva svårigheter kring aktiviteter så som att kommunicera, förflytta sig och få tag på information. I arbetsterapi är delaktighet i aktivitet ett viktigt begrepp. För att öka delaktigheten i aktiviteter i samhället för denna grupp behöver möjligheter till självständighet stärkas och beroende av andra människor minskas. Tillgång till teknologi kommer få större betydelse i rehabilitering i framtiden. Syftet med studien var att beskriva om och i så fall hur teknik kan främja delaktighet i aktivitet och i samhället för personer med dövblindhet. En litteraturstudie genomfördes vilken resulterade i tio artiklar med fokus på implikationer av tekniska lösningar för personer med dövblindhet. Resultatet visade att teknik kan främja delaktighet i aktivitet i samhället genom att ge personer med dövblindhet möjlighet till självständig mobilitet i samhället, kommunikation, tillgång till information och en känsla av säkerhet. Tekniken kan även ge personer ökad möjlighet till social interaktion och möjligt bryta viss isolering samt främja självständighet vid aktiviteter för personer med dövblindhet.

    Trust in financial advice2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis

    Abstract

    Problem

    Advising on financial products and services is considered to be important for customers because it has an impact on customers’ financial future. The risk involved in financial services makes customers feel uncertain as wrong decisions can cause serious economic losses. Retirement savings is a concrete example of a financial service affecting customers in the future. For customers to get an idea and understanding about retirement savings, it requires advice from professional advisors that customers can rely on. Therefore the aim of this thesis is to examine the potential gap of differences that might exist between advisers and customers, regarding how trust is created concerning advising on retirement savings.

    Purpose:

    The purpose of this study is to identify what differences might exist in the customers’ versus advisers’ opinions, on how the trust is created between the banker and the customer regarding retirement savings.

    Method:

    The method used in this study is a qualitative method. The study was done by eight interviews. The interviews were conducted with six customers and two of Handelsbanken's advisors. This made it possible for us to gain insight into two different perspectives, and therefore we were able to draw conclusions on possible similarities and differences.

    Conclusion:

    The study highlights that customers have a need for continuous contact with the financial advisors. This is a crucial factor in creating trust in a long-term relationship between the customer and the bank. The results indicate a clear difference between the experience of how trust is created regarding the communication between advisors and customers. Customers felt that their banks fail to provide them with sufficient information about updates of the progress regarding their retirement savings. Furthermore, customers felt that it was up to them to take the initiative to keep themselves updated regarding their retirement savings. The financial advisers, on the other hand did not appear to perceive the communication as a potential issue in the trust building process.

    Providing palliative care in a Swedish support home for people who are homeless2016In: Qualitative Health Research, ISSN 1049-7323, E-ISSN 1552-7557, Vol. 26, no 9, p. 1252-1262Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite high frequencies of multiple, life-limiting conditions relating to palliative care needs, people who are homeless are one of the most underserved and rarely encountered groups in palliative care settings. Instead, they often die in care places where palliative competence is not available. In this qualitative single-case study, we explored the conditions and practices of palliative care from the perspective of staff at a Swedish support home for homeless people. Interpretive description guided the research process, and data were generated from repeated reflective conversations with staff in groups, individually, and in pairs. The findings disclose a person-centered approach to palliative care, grounded in the understanding of the person’s health/illness and health literacy, and how this is related to and determinant on life as a homeless individual. Four patterns shape this approach: building trustful and family-like relationships, re-dignifying the person, re-considering communication about illness and dying, and re-defining flexible and pragmatic care solutions.

    En studie över effektiviseringsmöjligheter av fjärrvärmeinstallationer i småhus2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this study is to investigate the possibilities for improving the efficiency of district heating installations in houses by using Lean. This is done by answering the following three questions:

    • How is a district heating installation implemented?
    • What types of wastes can be identified in the process of district heating installations in houses?
    • How can wastes in the process of district heating installations in houses be reduced?

    Method: In order to fulfill the purpose of the study a case study has been conducted at Jönköping Energi, a supplier of district heating. Interviews and documentation studies have been used as data collection methods. Literature studies have been made to collect information on theories that were used to evaluate and analyze empirical data.

    Results: Wastes in the process of district heating in houses has been identified in the study. The biggest identified waste is the wait that occurs between the sub-processes, where wait reach up to 20 % of the total lead time of the installation. By implementing an information system, introducing changes in scheduling and start working in with parallel processes this wait can be reduced.

    Implications: This study shows that by using Lean the process of district heating installations in houses can be more efficient and that the lead time for the process can be shortened by eliminating wastes. The study also shows that by using bucketless planning, lead time can be shortened further when scheduling adapts to the process.

    Limitations: The study was carried out based on only one case study. By increasing the number of case studies and by carry those out in more than one company the generalizability of the results will be increased.

    The Role of Networks for Micro Firms2005Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction: Each year thousands of micro firms are established in Sweden, not all firms will survive and grow; instead many will be forced out of business. Possible explanations of this phenomena could lie in the personality of the entrepreneur, the network of the micro firm as well as support from society and so on.

    Problem: Prior research has showed that networks and networking are important for the establishment, development and growth of micro firms. The majority of prior research has been of a quantitative nature, which has resulted in great knowledge about structural dimensions while less is known about the interactional dimensions. It is because of the lack of qualitative knowledge that little is known about interactional dimensions in networks and networking activities.

    Purpose: The purpose of the study is to investigate the role of networks and networking activities for micro firms.

    Method: The research has the character of a qualitative case study. Data gathering has been done through six in-depth interviews with the founder or manager of six micro firms located in the facilities of Science Park in Jönköping. All information obtained from the interviews were transcribed and then analysed with a model developed by O’Donnell (2004).

    Summary of analysis: The role of networks and networking activities for micro firms are of great importance for generating business. Our analysis show that many of the micro firms are proactive towards their customers while their relationship with suppliers and competitors varies in characteristics.

    Investor Relations: Viewed from a marketing perspective2006Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction: When the American investment bank Morgan Stanley suddenly decide to increase their target stock price of the Ericsson stock by 100 percent, it became the point of origin for our interest in investor relations. In this particular case the increase of target stock price was announced right after new Morgan Stanley analysts started covering the stock. Why this tremendous increase in target stock price, we will probably never know. Perhaps the new analysts perceived the information disclosed from Ericsson’s investor re-lations function different from the prior analyst, and ended up in adjusting the target stock price.

    Problem: Stock prices today are very dependent on the market expectations of future company growth. Market actors estimate the potential growth by analysing information disclosed by the company. It has therefore become increasingly important for companies to manage their investor relations with a strategic marketing perspective to be able to meet the internal and external needs. Companies must also present themselves to investors in a way that appeals both on a rational and an emotional level. Once new investors are attracted and old ones are kept, companies must constantly communicate about their performance to uphold investors trust and there by creating or maintain long-term relationships.

    Purpose: The purpose is to explore if and how a marketing perspective is applicable when managing investor relations in traded companies.

    Method: This study has been conducted with qualitative research method. Collection of empirical data has been done through six semi-structured interviews with directors and managers whom all work with investor relations for their respective company. The six par-ticipating companies are all traded on the Stockholm stock exchange. The collected data were first analysed with the Kotler, Kartajaya & Young (2004) model and secondly ana-lyzed from a relationship marketing point of view.

    Analysis: The analysis shows that our sample of companies subconsciously work in align-ment with the Kotler et al. (2004) model and that they also work with different types of re-lationship marketing. Together this provides a holistic image of how traded companies work with a marketing perspective in their investor relations.

    Conclusion: After having analysed our empirical findings it is our belief that a marketing perspective is applicable when managing investor relations.

    Perceptions of employment, domestic work, and leisure as predictors of health among women and men2010In: Journal of Occupational Science, ISSN 1442-7591, E-ISSN 2158-1576, Vol. 17, no 3, p. 150-157Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: The aims of this longitudinal study were to analyse whether perceptions of employment,domestic work and leisure were predictors of health among women and men, and whether the predictors revealed were the same for both genders. Method: A random sample comprising of 2,683 employees in public health care and social insurance offices (2286 women and 397 men) in western Sweden, answered a survey twice, within a two-year interval. Results: The results showed that perceptions of low stress, good balance and high meaning in the occupations of everyday life predicted both good self-rated health and balanced work attendance among women but not among men. For men, the most important predictor of both good self-rated health and balanced work attendance was low work place stress. Conclusion: The men seemed to have a better balance between employment, domestic work, and leisure than the women. Furthermore, the results indicated that leisure might be a more pronounced health protector for women than for men.

    Associations between women's subjective perceptions of daily occupations and life satisfaction, and the role of perceived control2011In: Australian Occupational Therapy Journal, ISSN 0045-0766, E-ISSN 1440-1630, Vol. 58, no 6, p. 397-404Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND/AIM:

    More knowledge is needed about the role of perceived control in the associations between different perceptions of daily occupations and positive health outcomes. The aim was to explore the associations between different subjective perceptions of daily occupations, in terms of occupational balance, occupational meaning, occupational value and satisfaction with occupations, and life satisfaction, and the role of perceived control in those associations.

    METHODS:

    A questionnaire including questions about perceptions of daily occupations, perceived control and life satisfaction were answered by a random sample of 488 middle-aged Swedish women. Multiple logistic regression analysis was used to test the associations between perceptions of daily occupations and life satisfaction, and the role of perceived control.

    RESULTS:

    After adjustments for perceived control women who perceived a high level of satisfaction with work and leisure, occupational balance, occupational meaning and occupational value perceived greater life satisfaction than the other women. Perceived control was not significant in the model.

    CONCLUSIONS:

    It seems that occupational balance and occupational meaning were pivotal for the women's life satisfaction, but satisfaction with work and leisure, as well as perceived occupational value, was also of importance. The assumption that perceived control would have a role in the association between perceptions of occupations and life satisfaction was not confirmed.

    SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY:

    The results indicate that occupational therapists need to focus on occupational balance, occupational meaning, occupational value and satisfaction with work and leisure to promote positive health outcomes, in terms of life satisfaction, when working with middle-aged female clients.

    Achieving balance in everyday life: Insights from women with stress-related disorders2006In: Journal of Occupational Science, ISSN 1442-7591, E-ISSN 2158-1576, Vol. 13, no 1, p. 74-82Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is growing interest in developing a conceptual understanding of the experience of balance in everyday life, from an occupational perspective. The purpose of this study was to gain insights about balance in the everyday lives of women with stress-related disorders. Data were gathered from 19 women who were past the first phase of recovery from a stress-related disorder and participated in one of five focus groups. Analysis revealed that the participants experienced a continuum between imbalance and balance in everyday life. The themes that emerged were image of occupational self, strategies to manage and control everyday life, occupational repertoire, and occupational experience. Balance in everyday life was achieved through a dynamic interaction between these themes, which the women characterised as respecting their own values, needs, and resources; having strategies to manage and control everyday life; having a harmonious occupational repertoire; and engaging in personally meaningful occupation. Engagement in personally meaningful occupation appears to be a mechanism that enables people to achieve balance in everyday life by enabling them to develop a successful occupational selfimage, manageability, control, and a harmonious occupational repertoire. Well-being seems to be the outcome of balance in everyday life, and lack of balance is experienced as overload.

    Well-being and occupational roles among middle-aged women2005In: Work: A journal of Prevention, Assesment and rehabilitation, ISSN 1051-9815, E-ISSN 1875-9270, Vol. 24, no 4, p. 341-351Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    One purpose of the present study is to explore the stability of the pattern of health/work and sickness absence among middle-aged women over a period of three years. Two hypotheses were tested: 1. that enduringly healthy working women would perceive more valued occupational roles and higher well-being than long-term sick-listed women, and 2. that high levels of well-being at baseline would predict enduring health and occupational role value at a 3-year follow-up. Middle-aged women (n = 208) answered a postal survey with the Role checklist, a well-being scale and questions about work and sickness situation. The results showed that there was a considerable variability in the pattern of health/work and sickness absence. The results showed that the enduringly healthy women experienced a more valued worker role and higher well-being than the long-term sick-listed women. Furthermore, high levels of well-being concerning health and work predicted enduring health in the studied sample.

    Engagement in patterns of daily occupations and perceived health among women of working age2009In: Scandinavian Journal of Occupational Therapy, ISSN 1103-8128, E-ISSN 1651-2014, Vol. 16, no 2, p. 110-117Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the present cross-sectional study was to examine how subjective experiences of engagement in patterns of daily occupations (gainful employment, domestic work, enjoyable and recreational occupations) were associated with perceived health among women of working age. The sample (n_488) was drawn from a longitudinal cohort study of women of working age in Gothenburg, Sweden. Participants were women 38 (n_202) and 50 (n_286) years of age. They completed a questionnaire including questions about occupational experiences in relation to their patterns of daily occupations, perceived health, and socioeconomic factors. The results of the present study showed that a combination of different experience dimensions of patterns of daily occupations was associated with perceived health among women of working age, even when adjusted for socioeconomic factors and age. The results provided occupational pattern-related health indicators, i.e. manageability, personally meaningful occupations, and occupational balance. To combine these health indicators can be a way for occupational therapists to enable women to develop strategies to promote health and to prevent stress and sick leave.

    How Life Balance is Perceived by Swedish Women Recovering from a Stress-related Disorder: A Validation of the Life Balance Model2010In: Journal of Occupational Science, ISSN 1442-7591, E-ISSN 2158-1576, Vol. 17, no 2, p. 112-119Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This phenomenological research is the second part of two analysis phases. The purpose of the first analysis phase was to gain insights about the experiences, perceptions, and attitudes about lifestyle balance of 19 women who were recovering from stress-related disorders. The findings indicated that the women perceived both balance and imbalance relative to their image of occupational self, strategies to manage and control everyday life, occupational repertoire, and occupational experience. The purpose of the second analysis phase was to re-analyze the data for its congruence with the Matuska and Christiansen life balance model using a matrix system, and to test the validity of the model. Results from the second phase are reported. When discussing the continuum between balance and imbalance in their lives, the women described occupations that met needs related to each of the five lifestyle balance model dimensions. They felt balanced or imbalanced depending on whether they were able to maintain their physical health, nurture important relationships, create a positive identity, pursue rewarding and stimulating occupations, and manage their time and energy to achieve daily goals and renewal. These findings provide additional validity for the life balance model, which may be used in occupational science.

    Occupational balance, work and life satisfaction in working cohabiting parents in Sweden2019In: Scandinavian Journal of Public Health, ISSN 1403-4948, E-ISSN 1651-1905, Vol. 47, no 3, p. 366-374Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction: Occupational balance is the experience of having the right amount and right variation between work, domestic work, leisure, rest, and sleep. There is limited knowledge about which factors predict parents’ combined occupational balance, and if the combined occupational balance is associated with work and life satisfaction.

    Aim: The first aim was to explore whether domestic work and childcare at baseline predicted combined occupational balance at follow-up among working cohabiting parents. The second aim was to explore associations between different combinations of occupational balance, and work and life satisfaction at follow-up.

    Method: A sample of 139 cohabiting parents responded to a questionnaire. Cohabiting parents can experience their occupational balance differently, and in the present study their experiences were divided into high and low after the median. The parents’ balance was then combined in terms of high-high, high-low and low-low. Associations between childcare, domestic work, work and life satisfaction, and combined occupational balance were analysed with multinomial logistic regression analyses.

    Results: Satisfaction with the division of domestic work predicted a high-high occupational balance in parent couples. Associations were found between high-high as well as high-low combined occupational balance and life satisfaction, and between high-high occupational balance and work satisfaction.

    Conclusions: It seems important for both parents in a couple to experience satisfaction with the division of domestic work to experience high occupational balance as well as work and life satisfaction.

    Self-rated health in middle-aged women: Associations with sense of coherence and socioeconomic and health-related factors2003In: Scandinavian Journal of Occupational Therapy, ISSN 1103-8128, E-ISSN 1651-2014, Vol. 10, no 3, p. 99-106Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study aimed to describe and analyse self-rated health in relation to sense of coherence and socioeconomic and health-related factors and to explore the associations between self-rated health and these factors in order to identify health resources and health limitations in a group of healthy middle-aged women. Healthy middle-aged women from a defined geographical area in Southern Sweden ( n =577) answered a postal survey with the sense of coherence scale and questions about socioeconomic and health-related conditions. The results showed that very good/rather good self-rated health was associated with high sense of coherence and good economic situation, and these factors can be seen as a health resource. Poor self-rated health was most strongly associated with perceived symptoms of tension, weak sense of coherence, treatment for depression, treatment for chronic disease, and difficult economic situation, and these factors can be seen as health limitations. In conclusion, only 29% of the women rated their health as very good and 41% of the women had symptoms of tension but they were not sick-listed. It is of major public health interest to improve the understanding of self-rated health and to develop health promotion for women and methods to prevent symptoms of tension and sick-listing.
