My purpose with this essay was to investigate psychic health/well-being among young people from the concept Sense of Coherence and to try to make out such factors that could have an effect on young peoples Sense of Coherence. The main questions were: · How is the Sense of Coherence look among the investigated youths? · What kind of similarities/differences exists between genders regarding the Sense of Coherence? · Is it possible, through the questioner developed for the essay to find factors connected to the Sense of Coherence? · Are there any differences in these factors that can be connected to different gender, and if so - how? To get the information I have done an investigation among a total of 47 youths (in the ninth grade). Everyone has answered two questioners - one that measures the Sense of Coherence, developed by Aaron Antonovsky, a professor in medical sociology and one with questions. These questions were made to answer what kind of factors - connected to young peoples conditions of life, that could have an effect on the Sense of Coherence, and if these were affected by gender. The results showed that there are factors that are connected to the Sense of Coherence and that a difference between boys and girls exist to an extent. The results also showed a clear connection between how the youth's experience of their life-conditions can affect their psychic health/wellbeing and therefore their Sense of Coherence. The effect that I hope that the results of this essay will have is that the knowledge about how certain factors can have an effect on young people's Psychic health/well-being can help us to make life easier and better fore those who have a more troubled life.
