Abstract [sv]

Edvinsson, J. & Eriksson, I. (2014). Den sociala omgivningens påverkan på kvinnors hälsa - En kvalitativ studie om sju unga kvinnors upplevelser. Kandidatuppsats i pedagogik. Högskolan i Gävle, Akademin för Utbildning och Ekonomi, Avdelningen för utbildningsvetenskap. Den sociala omgivningen och dess processer har visat sig påverka individers upplevelser av vad hälsa är och även deras hälsoattityder- och beteenden. I dagsläget är däremot medvetenheten liten kring hur processerna påverkar dessa, samtidigt som kvinnor upplever sin hälsa sämre än någonsin. Det behövs mer forskning om fenomenet sociala processer och hälsa, som kan öka medvetenheten kring detta. Därför är syftet med denna studie att undersöka hur unga kvinnor beskriver hälsa samt hur de upplever att deras sociala omgivning påverkar deras hälsoattityder- och beteenden. Metoden som användes var kvalitativa semistrukturerade intervjuer med sju kvinnor mellan 20-30 år. Det insamlade materialet kategoriserades utifrån gemensamma teman och analyserats med inspiration av fenomenologi. Resultatet visade genom samlade upplevelser att kvinnorna upplevde hälsa som en balans mellan psykiskt och fysiskt välmående. Det fanns upplevelser av förväntningar och normer i omgivningen kring hälsoattityder- och beteenden, samtidigt som kvinnorna inte ansåg att dessa har någon påverkan på hur de upplevde hälsa. Omgivningen har med andra ord ingen uttalad påverkan på kvinnornas upplevelser av hälsa. Däremot går det inte att konstatera att påverkan inte sker eftersom det kan vara en omedveten process som sker i samspel med omgivningen.

The social environment and its different processes have been shown to influence individual’s perception of health and peoples’ attitude toward health and behavior constructions. However, the range of knowledge about these processes and their influence is small, while women perceive their health worse than ever. It is essential that more research be conducted, on the phenomenon of social processes and health, which can increase awareness around this. increase the awareness of health and its benefits. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to investigate how young women describe health and how they perceive that heir social environment and surroundings influences their attitude and behavior toward health. The method that was used in this study was qualitative semi-constructed interviews that were answered by seven women, aged 20-30 years. The data have thereafter been categorized by common themes and was then analyzed with the help and inspiration of phenomenology. The result, the common experiences that these women shared, showed that health was perceived as a balance between psychical and physical wellbeing. The social environment contain expectations and norms regarding the attitudes and behaviors toward health, however the women did not conceive these to have any impact on their experience of health. The environment and surroundings have therefore no pronounced influence over the women’s experience of health. It is impossible, however, to verify that there are no influence what so ever, as it may be an unconscious process in interplay with the surroundings.
