Kan säker anknytning från föräldrar moderera relationen mellan etniska trakasserier och självförtroende hos ungdomar som immigrerat (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The purpose for our study was to see whether reporting mothers and fathers safe base separately protects adolescents who are ethnically harassed from developing low self-esteem. To examine this, we use secondary longitudinal data with immigrant adolescents. In addition to bivariate correlations we ran two moderation regression analyses to test if perceived safe base from mothers or fathers could affect the link between ethnic harassment and self-esteem. Moreover, we wanted to see if perceiving safe base with either parent could change the level of self-esteem within the adolescent. The results showed significance when mothers safe base was tested as a moderator. However, this was not the case for the fathers. The findings in our study were discussed and compared to previous research.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med vår studie var att se om mammors och pappors säkra anknytning skyddar ungdomar som är etniskt trakasserade från att utveckla lågt självförtroende. För att undersöka detta använde vi longitudinell data med invandrarungdomar. Utöver bivariata korrelationer har vi genomfört två moderationsanalyser för att testa om en uppfattad säker anknytning till mammor eller pappor kan påverka sambandet mellan etniska trakasserier och självförtroende. Utöver detta ville vi se om uppfattad säker anknytning med ena föräldern kan ändra graden av självförtroende hos ungdomarna. Resultaten visade signifikanta resultat när mammors säkra anknytning testades som en moderator. Men detta var inte fallet för papporna. Resultaten i vår studie diskuterades och jämfördes med tidigare forskning.
