By Rebecka Onerup and Julia Drugge


Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka relationen mellan ogiltig skolfrånvaro och grad av psykologiska, emotionella och sociala resurser. Vi undersökte både hemmasittande ungdomar (N = 13) och normalpopulation (N = 235) i två delstudier med en enkätbaserad tvärsnittsdesign. Resultatet visade att hemmasittande ungdomar upplevde mycket låg grad av psykologiska resurser. Resultaten visade även att graden av ogiltig skolfrånvaro hängde samman med graden av psykologiska resurser. Ogiltig skolfrånvaro hängde även till viss del samman med sociala och emotionella resurser. Ogiltigt skolfrånvarande ungdomar använde sig i lägre grad av adaptiv emotionsreglering och upplevde lägre socialt stöd från lärare. Vidare forskning behövs för att bekräfta resursernas betydelse.The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between unauthorized absence from school and psychological, emotional and social resources. We examined two samples, one consisting of students with complete school absence (N = 13) and one population based reference group (N = 235), using a questionnaire based cross-sectional research design. Results showed that students with complete school absence experience a very low level of psychological resources. Results also showed that unauthorized absence from school was related to level of psychological resources. Unauthorized absence from school was also partly related to social and emotional resources. Students with unauthorized absence from school used adaptive emotional regulation strategies to a lesser extent, and experienced a lower level of social support from teachers. Further research is required to confirm the relevance of the psychological, emotional, and social resources
