You’re not strong alone : a quantitative survey study on the importance of relationships for students studying to become social workers during the pandemic (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka relationers betydelse för studenter på Ersta Sköndal Bräcke högskola i Stockholm under Covid-19 pandemin.

Som metod har en kvantitativ enkätstudie använts för att undersöka huruvida studenternas nätverk och sociala kontakter haft för betydelse i hur de hanterar sin livssituation under pandemin. Frågor om deras upplevelse av stress, ensamhet och psykisk hälsa har ställts för att få svar på hur de påverkats av restriktionerna i samhället där distansstudier varit en stor omställning för studenter.

Materialet har sedan bearbetats i det statistiska programmet IBM SPSS Statistics (SPSS) och analyserats utifrån relationella socialpsykologiska teorier såsom Thomas J Scheffs teori om sociala band, symbolisk interaktionism och teorin om primära och sekundära grupper samt vetenskapliga artiklar. Studiens resultat visar att majoriteten av studenterna har stabila nätverk där de prioriterar mer etablerade och meningsfulla relationer samt vänder sig till det primära nätverket när de är i behov av stöd vilket kan vara en orsak till att den psykiska hälsan blir hanterbar. Resultatet pekar även på att studenter som studerat under en längre tid tillsammans har starkare sociala band än de som precis börjat sin studieresa ihop.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate the importance of relationships for students at Ersta Sköndal Bräcke University in Stockholm during the Covid-19 pandemic.

A quantitative survey study has been used as a method to investigate whether the student’s network and social contacts were important to how they handle their life situation during the pandemic. Questions about their experience of stress, loneliness and mental health have been asked to get answers to how they have been affected by the restrictions in society where distance learning has been a major adjustment for students.

The material has since been processed in the statistical program IBM SPSS Statistics (SPSS) and analyzed on the basis of relational social psychological theories such as Thomas J Scheff’s theory of Social ties, Symbolic interactionism and the theory of primary and secondary groups, as well as scientific articles. The result of the study shows that most students have stable networks where they prioritize more established and meaningful relationships and turn to the primary network when they need support which may be the reason why mental health becomes manageable. The result also indicates that students who have studied together for a longer period have stronger social ties to one another than those who have just begun their study journey together.
