Conflict management style and perceived stress of university teachers (English)
Abstract [sv]

Stress har funnits förekomma i läraryrket. Stress kan samvariera med konflikter i den psykosociala arbetsmiljön. Studiens syfte var därför att undersöka om konflikthanteringsstilar hade något samband med upplevelsen av stress. Ett annat syfte var att undersöka vilken konflikthanteringsstil som var mest och minst förekommande, samt att belysa universitetslärares upplevda stressnivå. Ytterligare syfte var att undersöka om stress och konflikthanteringsstilar hade något samband med kön och ålder. Undersökningens deltagare var 92 heltidsanställda universitetslärare (52 kvinnor) vid Högskolan Väst. För datainsamlingen användes skalan Perceived Stress Scale, Thomas – Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument samt bakgrundsfrågor gällande lärarnas kön ålder och tillhörande institution. Resultatet visade att den konkurrerande stilen var minst förekommande och att lärarnas upplevda stressnivå ansågs vara relativt låg. Det visades förekomma svaga positiva icke-signifikanta samband mellan stress och två konflikthanteringsstilar; samverkan och undvikande. Sambandet mellan stress och den undvikande stilen, samt mellan stress och den samverkande stilen, diskuterades bero på att det kan upplevas som mer stressande att se till bådas behov i en konflikt. Resultatet fann att stress och den konkurrerande stilen tenderade att vara mindre förekommande hos äldre universitetslärarna. Den konkurrerande stilen visades även vara den minst förekommande konflikthanteringsstilen hos lärarna, vilket diskuteras som positivt eftersom det indikerar att lärarna inte är angelägna om att tillgodose sina egna behov framför sina studenters. Ett kritiskt förhållningssätt bör hållas till resultatet, eftersom den interna konsistensen gällande konflikthanteringsstilar var svårbedömd

Abstract [en]

Stress has been found to occur in the teaching profession. Stress is connected with conflicts in the psychosocial work environment. The purpose of the study was to investigate if conflict styles were related to the experience of stress. The study examined which style that was most and least frequent, and university teachers perceived stress levels. A further aim was to examine whether stress and conflict styles were related to gender and age. The participants were 92 full-time teachers (52 women) at University West. For the data collection the Perceived Stress Scale and Thomas - Kilmann Conflict Mode Instruments were used among with background questions regarding gender, age and institutional belonging. The results showed the competing style to be least frequent and that teachers' perceived stress level was considered to be relatively low. The results also showed a weak positive non-significant correlation between stress and the two styles; collaboration and avoidance. The relationship between stress and the avoidance style, and between stress and the collaborative style, were discussed to be perceived as more stressful since both styles try to ensure both needs in a conflict. The study found that stress and the competing style tended to be less frequent and less prevalent among older teachers, which were discussed to be positive since it indicates that teachers do not look to meet their own needs in front of their students. A critical approach should be use with these results, since the internal consistency regarding conflict management styles, were difficult to assess
