Abstract [en]

Stress is a natural reaction of the body's organ systems, which is triggered by emotional and mental stress. These pressures arise when the individual experiences an imbalance between the demands and the resources available to meet the requirements. High school is a time in life when students face increased expectations and demands, both from themselves and the environment, which affect the perceived stress. The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the causes of stress in a Swedish school environment using new instruments developed in international research. Further, the way students handle stressful situations is studied. The questions have concerned these areas and differences in stressful experiences between girls and boys when it comes to the causes of stress. The survey was conducted at a secondary school in Luleå. The results show that the majority of the students feel pressure as a result of their studies, and therefore feel stress because of the study situation, expectations and the future. This study, just like most other studies, show that girls feel more pressure and feel more stressed and worried about the future than boys do. The results also show that the majority of students do handle stressful situations in an efficient way and feel support from their social networks.
