Kater, Maren-Jo eng Schlarb, Angelika Anita 2022-10-14T11:32:53Z Lohaus, Arnold Personal and social resources in the context of adolescent sleep 2022-10-14T11:32:53Z Kerkhoff, Denny Lohaus, Arnold 2022-09-08 Schlarb, Angelika Anita Kater, Maren-Jo Werner, Anika Objective<br />The existing literature has focused little on the health-promoting role of resources for sleep. Mainly risk factors have been highlighted regarding mental health in general. Moreover, for the vulnerable age group of adolescents, resources and their relation to sleep have hardly been explored. Therefore, this study aims to investigate the predictive role of personal/social resources for the likelihood of having chronic sleep problems in adolescents.<br /><br />Methods and measures<br />A sample of n = 131 adolescents (M = 14.31 years, SD = 1.84) completed the Sleep Disturbance Scale for Children and the Questionnaire to Assess Resources for Children and Adolescents at two measurement points about 8 months apart.<br /><br />Results<br />Binomial logistic regressions controlling for age and sex revealed that higher levels of personal and social resources were associated with a lower likelihood of having chronic sleep problems. Especially optimism and school integration were associated with not experiencing chronic sleep problems.<br /><br />Conclusion<br />For the first time, this study highlighted multiple resources and their health-promoting role in adolescent sleep. Both personal and social resources seem to be relevant for preventing adolescents from chronic sleep problems. Prevention and intervention programs for sleep disorders in teenagers should especially promote optimism and school integration. Werner, Anika Kerkhoff, Denny
