Abstract [sv]

Samhällets utveckling går ständigt framåt vilket har lett till ökade valmöjligheter och ständig anpassning för människor. Att leva upp till kraven som ställs orsakar en viss utsatthet och ökar risken för stressrelaterad ohälsa. Syftet med studien var att belysa tidigare forskning om skogens betydelse i samband med arbetsrelaterad stress och utmattningssyndrom, samt belysa vikten av naturen som en del utav rehabiliteringen. För att uppnå syftet gjordes en litteraturstudie. Sökningar gjordes i åtta databaser för att finna artiklar efter samtliga kriterier. Efter urval inkluderades tio vetenskapliga artiklar som sedan analyserades. Resultatet av studien visade att skogen kan ha restorativ effekt på personer som lider av arbetsrelaterad stress och utmattningssyndrom. Lägre nivåer av stress uppvisades och pulsen var lägre i skogen än i stadsmiljö. Att delta i naturbaserad rehabilitering kan underlätta för personer att återgå till arbete och finna balans i dagliga rutiner med skogen som en del av vardagen. För att kunna utföra fler evidensbaserade förebyggande åtgärder med skogen som verktyg rekommenderas dock vidare forskning inom detta område.

Abstract [en]

The society is constantly growing. This puts people in front of an infinite number of choices and requires them to be adaptable. Stress is a risk factor in the community and also at workplaces. The strained condition affects negatively people’s health, wellbeing and achievement. The aim of the study was to illuminate previous researches about nature’s roll in relation to work-related stress and exhaustion disorders, and also to elucidate the importance of nature as part of a rehabilitation program. The work in this paper is presented as a literature review. Eight different databases have been used to identify scholarly articles that corresponded to specific criteria. The assortment included ten scholarly articles that were analyzed. The results showed that the forest has a restorative effect on most people who suffer from work-related stress and burnout. Lower levels of stress and lower heart rate were showed in the forest compared to urban areas. To participate in nature-based rehabilitation can make it easier for people to return to work when they possibly have found balancing/restorative activities within daily occupations. In order to establish evidence based practice, involving the forest as part of rehabilitation for people with stress related disorders, more research are recommended.
