Abstract [en]

Within organizational psychology, previous research has shown that there is a relationship between burnout on team-level and individual team members’ burnout, but little is known if this contagiousness of burnout is also relevant within sport contexts. Therefore, the first aim of the present study was to examine the effect of perceived teammate burnout on athletes perceptions of their own burnout. Furthermore, previous research has suggested that highquality coach-athlete relationship has several positive outcomes for the athlete. Recently, researchers have found evidence that a high-quality coach-athlete relationship is linked with less symptoms of burnout in athletes. Therefore, the second aim was to investigate whether a high-quality coach-athlete relationship can mediate the relationship between perceived teammate burnout and individual burnout. Male and female athletes (N=102) performing five different competitive team sports at different levels participated in a cross-sectional study and completed questionnaires measuring individual athlete burnout, perceptions of teammates’ burnout and the quality of perceived coach-athlete relationship. The mediation regression analysis showed that the regression between perceived teammate burnout and individual burnout was significant. No mediation effect of quality of coach-athlete relationship was found when applying a Sobel test. The findings support the preliminary research on burnout contagiousness within the field of sport and to further examine the relationship between quality of coach-athlete relationship and athlete burnout more research is encouraged.

Abstract [sv]

Inom organisationspsykologi har tidigare forskning visat att det finns en relation mellan utbrändhet på gruppnivå och individuell gruppmedlems utbrändhet, men det finns lite forskning om denna smittsamhet av utbrändhet också gäller inom idrottssammanhang. Därav var första syftet med föreliggande studie att undersöka effekten av upplevelsen av lagkamraters utbrändhet på idrottarens upplevelse av egen utbrändhet. Forskning har vidare visat att en högkvalitativ tränare-idrottare relation har flera positiva utfall för idrottaren. Nyligen har forskare funnit bevis att en högkvalitativ tränare-idrottare relation är kopplat till mindre symtom av utbrändhet hos idrottare. Därmed var andra syftet att undersöka huruvida en högkvalitativ tränare-idrottare relation kan mediera relationen mellan upplevelsen av utbrändhet hos lagkamrater och individuell utbrändhet. Manliga och kvinnliga idrottare (N = 102) från fem olika tävlande lagsporter på olika nivåer deltog i tvärsnittsstudien. De fick fylla i frågeformulärer som avser mäta individuell utbrändhet, upplevelsen av lagkamraters utbrändhet och kvalitén på den upplevda tränare-idrottare relationen. Mediator- och regressionsanalyser visade att regressionen mellan upplevelsen av lagkamraters utbrändhet och individuell utbrändhet var signifikant. Ingen medierande effekt av kvalitén på den upplevda tränare-idrottare relationen hittades med Sobel-test. Resultaten stödjer den preliminära forskning om smittsamhet av utbrändhet inom idrott och att ytterligare undersöka relationen mellan kvalitén på den upplevda tränare-idrottare relationen och individuell utbrändhet uppmuntras.
