Relation of perceived safety and sense of coherence in the Armed forces of Slovak Republic
Vzťah vnímaného bezpečia k zmyslu pre koherenciu u príslušníkov ozbrojených síl SR
Perceived safety or danger is a rising topic in the public psychology. The aim of this paper is to determine the relationship between the perception of safety and sense of coherence in specific sample of the Armed forces of the Slovak Republic. To measure sense of coherence we used questionnaire of life orientation from A. Antonovsky which focuses on personality-related stress-resistance resource. Perceived safety, we explored by the selected items using the main questionnaire from the 5th round of the European Social Survey (ESS). The sample consisted of 204 members of the armed forces of which 93.6% were males. The average age of respondents was 31.43 years (SD = 5,795). Task of members of the Armed forces is: to guarantee the security of the state against external attack by a foreign power, as well as obligations arising from international agreements by which the Slovak Republic is tied. Perceived safety can be in this particular sample negatively affected due to the nature of the profession, and we expect a significant relationship to personality related characteristics of the sense of coherence. Interpretation of the results will be described in more detail in the paper.
