CHC nurses’ work to reduce stress among parents (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: The demands and norms of modern society cause increasing stress levels amongst the population where parents of young children have proven to be a particularly vulnerable group. Research indicates that parents with high stress levels often have a negative impact on the whole family, including their children as well, who then might present signs of a lower physical health and difficulties concentrating. Aim: The purpose of the study was to describe Child Health Care (CHC) nurses’ work to reduce stress among parents. Method: Eight semi-structured interviews based on a convenience sampling were conducted and analyzed according to qualitative content analysis. Results: The analysis identified three categories: ”Using Oneself as an Asset”, ”Strengthen the Parents” and ”Working in a Whole Family Approach”. Conclusion: The CHC nurses worked with a salutogenic perspective using multiple approaches when helping parents reduce stress. It was prominent that the conversation was of importance when meeting the parents and having good counseling skills seemed to be one of the most important areas to master. One area where more focus on stress reduction could be beneficial is as part of the education offered in parent groups and this would be a way of better emphasizing the occurrence of stress and the importance of useful stress management strategies.
