Abstract [sv]

Alkohol används ofta av ungdomar och kopplas med skadliga hälsorelaterade utfall (t ex skada, beroende). Denna uppsats undersökt unga kvinnors attityder till alkoholkonsumtion. Valet av unga kvinnor som studiegrupp motiverades av det faktum att unga kvinnor börjar vanligtvis att konsumera alkohol vid en tidigare ålder än unga män i samma åldersgrupp.

Studien bestod av två fokusgrupper med totalt nio unga kvinnor i nionde klass från en kommunal skola i en liten stad i södra Sverige. Resultatet visade att de unga kvinnorna ansåg att konsumtionen av alkohol med andra unga kvinnor inträffade på grund av en kombination av grupptryck och effekten av föräldrars påverkan på sina barn. De unga kvinnorna tänkte att om det fanns tydliga regler i hemmet barnen skulle veta vad som förväntades från själva. Resultatet visade också att ett behov av att bli accepterad av andra jämnåriga ansågs utgöra ytterligare en viktig orsak bakom alkoholkonsumtion. Sammanfattning utav denna studie är att både tidigare forskning och denna studies resultat visade att föräldrars påverkan på sina ungdomar och grupptryck har stor påverkan på hur ungdomar väljer att agera kring olika hälsorelaterade val. 

Abstract [en]

Alcohol are commonly used by adolescents and linked with harmful health-related outcomes (e.g. injury, dependence). This study explored young women’s attitudes to alcohol consumption. The choice of young women as a study group was motivated by the fact that young women typically start to consume alcohol at an earlier age than young males in the same age group. The study consisted of two focus groups with a total of nine young women in ninth class from a public school in a small town in the south of Sweden. The result showed that the young women believed that the consumption of alcohol with other young women occurred due to a combination of peer pressure and the effect that parents have on their child. The young women thought that if there were clear rules in the home the children would know what was expected from themselves. The result also showed that a need to be accepted by other peers were believed to constitute an additional important reason behind alcohol consumption. In sum, both previous research and the results of this study converge to indicate that parents' influence on their youth and peer pressure have a major impact on how young people choose to act on various health related life-style choices.
