Placering i syskonskarans effekt på icke-suicidalt självskadebeteende och upplevt föräldrastöd (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

In this study we investigated the effects of birth order and gender on nonsuicidalself-injury and perceived parental support. This study’s main purposewas to challenge the current use of birth order in psychology. The studyincluded a short questionnaire assessing birth order, gender, perceived parentalsupport and non-suicidal self-injury. The questionnaire was distributed throughan online survey among young adults attending a university in a medium sizedcity in Sweden (N = 202). To explore the perceived parental support, we usedThe Social Provisions scale and non-suicidal self-injury was assessed by theDeliberate Self-harm Inventory, short 9-item scale. The results of these studiesshowed that birth order had no significant effect on non-suicidal self-injury orperceived parental support. On the other hand, the results suggested that genderhad a significant effect on non-suicidal self-injury, with females engaging onnon-suicidal injury more frequently than men. This contradicts earlier studieswhere no effect of gender has been present in young adults. Gender had noapparent effect on perceived parental support.

Abstract [sv]

I denna studie undersökte vi effekten av placering i syskonskaran och kön påicke-suicidalt självskadebeteende och upplevt föräldrastöd. Denna studieshuvudsyfte var att utmana hur placeringen i syskonskaran används i psykologi.Studien inkluderade ett kortare frågeformulär som mätte placering isyskonskaran, kön, upplevt föräldrastöd och icke-suicidalt självskadebeteende.Frågeformuläret delades ut genom en online-baserad undersökning för ungavuxna som studerar på ett universitet i en medelstor svensk stad (N = 202). Föratt undersöka upplevt föräldrastöd använde vi oss av The Social Provisionsscale och icke-suicidalt självskadebeteende undersöktes av Deliberate SelfharmInventory, short 9-item scale. Resultatet av denna studie visade attplacering i syskonskaran inte hade några signifikanta effekter på varken ickesuicidaltsjälvskadebeteende eller upplevt föräldrastöd. Dock visade det sig attkön hade en effekt på icke-suicidalt självskadebeteende, då kvinnor hade enhögre prevalens att praktisera än män. Kön hade ingen uppenbar effekt påupplevt föräldrastöd.
