Abstract (Swedish)
Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka förekomsten och graden av alexitymi och dess samband med kvalitet i nära relationer och psykisk ohälsa i en allmänpsykiatrisk population. Studien genomfördes på en allmänpsykiatrisk mottagning för vuxna under två veckors tid med ett konsekutivt urval där patienterna vid ett ordinarie besök ombads besvara ett enkätmaterial. Statistikprogrammet SPSS användes för att bearbeta det vid ett mättillfälle insamlade materialet, bestående av svar från formulären TAS-20, som mäter alexitymi, RSQ-30, som mäter anknytningsstil och GHQ-12 som mäter generell hälsa. Resultaten visade att kvinnor och män skattade likartat på alexitymi och att det inte fanns något signifikant samband mellan alexitymi och ålder. Av... (More)

Resultaten visade att kvinnor och män skattade likartat på alexitymi och att det inte fanns något signifikant samband mellan alexitymi och ålder. Av 46 deltagare skattade 21 sig som alexityma. Det fanns ett signifikant samband, (p=0,003), mellan hög grad av alexitymi och anknytningsstilen Fearful. Kunskap om patientens grad av alexitymi och anknytningsstil kan möjligen vara en värdefull variabel att som terapeut ha aktualiserad inför och under ett behandlingsarbete. (Less)
Abstract
The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence and degree of alexitymia and its correlation with quality in close relationships and health distress in a general outpatient population. The study was performed in a general outpatient care unit for two weeks with a consecutive selection where the patients, during an ordinary visit, was asked to participate and complete questionnaires assessing their general health (GHQ-12), attachment style (RSQ-30) and levels of alexitymia (TAS-20). The data used was collected at one occasion and the statistical analysis was made using SPSS. The results showed that men and women evaluated themselves equaly on alexitymia and there was no significant correlation between alexitymia and age. 21out of the... (More)

alexitymia. There was a significant correlation, (p=0,003), between alexitymia and Fearful attachment style. As a therapist, understanding of patients' degrees of alexitymia and attachment styles may be valuable factors to consider before and during treatment. (Less)
