Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att utifrån ett salutogent perspektiv undersöka om en hästunderstödd aktivitet med en ridterapeut kan påverka stress- och energinivå samt positiv och negativ affekt hos individer. Studien belyser om en sådan aktivitet kan fungera som copingstrategi och ge stressreduktion. En utgångspunkt var också att undersöka könskillnader beträffande stressreaktioner. I studien användes Stress- och energitest samt PANAS-test för pre- och post-mätningar. I studien ingick 69 respondenter, 42 kvinnor och 27 män. Resultatet visade att stressnivån sjönk efter en hästunderstödd aktivitet. Inte oväntat visade studien även att kvinnor var mer stressade än män. Dock erhöll kvinnor en större stressreduktion än män efter en hästunderstödd aktivitet.

Note

The purposes with this study was to examine equine-assisted activity with an equestrian

therapist based on a salutogenic perspective investigating the affect on individuals'

stress and energy levels as well as positive and negative affects. This study

illustrates if such activity may serve as a coping strategy and provide stress reduction.

A starting point was to examine gender differences in stressresponses. The

study used stress- and energytest as well as PANAS-test for pre- and post-test. The

study involved 69 respondents, 42 women and 27 men. The results showed that the

stress level was reduced after equine-assisted activity. Not surprisingly, the study showed that women are more stressed than men. However, women received a larger

stress reduction, than men after an equine-assisted activity.
