  • Men in communal roles. The influence of gender incongruent role models on gender stereotypes and occupational aspirations of kindergarten children in Northern Norway 

    Ofori, George Kwadwo (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2018-05-02)
    Research in the past has looked extensively at gender segregation in the workforce, where men and women are “divided” into bigger domains of work based on traditional gender roles attributed to them (Watt, 2008; Tellhed, Bäckström & Björklund, 2016). These two domains are STEM: science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (Beede et al., 2011) and HEED: healthcare, elementary education, and ...
  • The thrill of speedy descents: A pilot study on differences in facially expressed online emotions and retrospective measures of emotions during a downhill mountain-bike descent 

    Hetland, Audun; Kjelstrup, Eirik Refsnes; Mittner, Matthias; Vittersø, Joar (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-04-02)
    When extreme sport athletes explain the engagement behind their taxing and risky endeavors, they often refer to the happiness generated by the activities. However, during the activity, these athletes seem neither pleased nor happy. This article proposes some answers from a study of facially expressed emotions measured moment by moment during downhill mountain biking. Self-reported emotions were ...

Salient predictors and antecedents of workaholism and work engagement are identified in a sample of 12170 employees at Norwegian universities and university colleges. Structural equation modeling suggested that job demands and job resources relate to workaholism ...
  • Estrogen receptors α and β in the central amygdala and the ventromedial nucleus of the hypothalamus: Sociosexual behaviors, fear and arousal in female rats during emotionally challenging events 

    Le Moëne, Olivia; Stavarache, Mihaela; Ogawa, Sonoko; Musatov, Sergei; Ågmo, Anders (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-03-27)
    Estrogens receptors (ER) are involved in several sociosexual behaviors and fear responses. In particular, the ERα is important for sexual behaviors, whereas ERβ modulates anxiolytic responses. Using shRNA directed either against the ERα or the ERβ RNAs (or containing luciferase control) encoded within an adeno-associated viral vector, we silenced these receptors in the ventromedial nucleus of the ...

    Walstad, Anja Sletten; Nilssen, Miriam Adele (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2017-05-02)
    Barn av psykisk syke foreldre er en gruppe med forhøyet risiko for selv å utvikle psykisk sykdom. For å kartlegge og ivareta barn som pårørende, har det blitt implementert to nye intervensjoner ved et sykehus i Nord-Norge. Denne studien er en del av en longitudinell studie, hvor formålet er å evaluere implementeringsprosessen over tid. Utvalget (N= 219 ved pre-test, N = 185 ved post-test og N = 108 ...
  • "Jeg ville de skulle tro meg!" Menn utsatt for seksuelle overgrep som barn: Veier til avsløring og hjelp 

    Johansen, Miriam (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2018-05-02)
    Foreliggende studie undersøker hvor lang tid det tok før menn som har vært utsatt for seksuelle overgrep i barndommen (SOB) avslørte dette, til hvem, og hva som førte fram mot, eller hindret avsløring. Studien undersøker videre hvor lang tid det tok fra avsløring til hjelpsøking, når og hvor det ble oppsøkt hjelp, og hva som opplevdes og ikke opplevdes hjelpsomt. Inklusjonskriteriene var menn utsatt ...
  • The role of ultrasonic vocalizations in the formation of rat groups in a semi-natural environment 

    Skagen, Bjørn (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2018-05-03)
    This study investigated if ultrasonic vocalizations (USV) had an effect on the formation of groups of rats in a semi-natural setting that allowed the rats to live closer to their natural state in the wild. This was done by letting four groups of rats into a semi-natural environment. Where prior to release into the environment, all the rats received surgery. Where some of the rats had the nerve to ...
  • The Psychology of leisure experiences. A closer look at liminality and a comparison of (the seemingly very different) activities of friluftsliv and video gaming 

    Torjul, Ingelin Settemsdal (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-05-02)
    This thesis explored the nature of liminality and experiences, by collecting responses from a sample of 155 Norwegians who partook in the leisure activities friluftsliv or video gaming, by responding to an online questionnaire consisting of various scales measuring liminality, and variables we believed to be more, or less, related to liminality. The variables included, in addition to liminality, ...
  • Synliggjøring av "De usynlige barna". Barn som pårørende av foreldre med psykiske lidelser og ruslidelser i behandling ved Psykisk helse- og rusklinikken, Universitetssykehuset i Nord-Norge 

    Støver, Ylva Victoria; Freili, Janita (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2017-05-01)
    Bakgrunn: Kunnskapsstatus viser at det er en transgenerasjonell overføring av risiko og psykisk morbiditet fra foreldre til barn som pårørende (BAP), men det finnes relativt få implementerte tiltak tilpasset BAP i psykisk helsevern for voksne. Svake kartleggingsrutiner har bidratt til at vi fortsatt ikke vet hva som kjennetegner disse barna, deres livssituasjon, foreldrenes lidelser eller hvorvidt ...
