Sammanfattning (abstract):
Earlier studies on women's health and women's drinking and contemporary associated risk factors have highlighted the need for more complex approaches in understanding the pathways into women's problem drinking. Research from both social science and occupational therapy theory have underlined the importance of deconstructing the often dichotomised way of investigating women's daily lives (such as in paid and unpaid work or in work and leisure) when discussing factors from the daily life environment and their impact on health issues. The aim of this study is to explore the relationship between patterns of women's daily occupation and alcohol consumption using the broader concept of occupation from occupational therapy theory. Method: A cross-sectional study with data from the latest wave (2000) of a population-based project, Women and Alcohol in Göteborg (WAG). The study group consists of in total 871 women, aged 20-55 years. For identifying different groups of occupational patterns we are using an individual oriented method; Two-step clustering. Further we aim to use analyses of variance to analyse if there are specific occupational patterns related to problematic alcohol consumption. The specific variables constituting the patterns of daily occupations in this study are employment status, leisure, distribution of household/maintenance work, time for free disposal and the satisfaction with each of these four domains. Preliminary results will be presented.
