Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte var att undersöka hur studenter på psykologprogrammen beskriver och relaterar till sina erfarenheter av stress. En narrativ analys gjordes på fyra intervjuer med studenter på programmen. Narrativen skapades kring följande kritiska punkter: första året i klassen, termin 5, praktik, psykologmottagningen, och nuläget. Pauls narrativ innehöll försök att distansera sig från andra studenter för att minska sin stress. Matildas narrativ började med hög stress inför tentamen och avslutades med att hon uppfattade tentamina som hanterbara. Antonias narrativ innehöll stress som var relaterat till prestationer, men även en förståelse för hur hon bäst studerar. Stefans narrativ positionerade honom utanför klassen i ett försök att inte tappa sin individualitet och inte dras in i normer om hög prestation. Utifrån studien skulle det vara intressant att fortsatt undersöka normer om hög prestation och deras relation till önskvärd femininitet och maskulinitet på psykologprogrammen.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to examine how students at the Clinical Psychology Programs describe and relate to their experiences of stress. A narrative analysis was conducted on four interviews with students from the programs. The narratives were centered on the following critical events: the first year, the 5th semester, the work placement, the clinical practice, and the current time. Paul’s narrative included attempts to distance himself from the other students in order to reduce his stresslevels. Matilda’s narrative began with high stress associated with exams, and ended with experiencing exams as manageable. Antonia’s narrative described stress that was related to achievements, as well as an understanding of how she best should study. Stefan’s narrative positioned him outside the student-group in an attempt not to get lost in the crowd, and not get dragged into the norms of overachievement. Based on this study it would be interesting to further explore norms of overachievement and their relation to norms of desirable gendered conduct at the Clinical Psychology Programs.
