  • Cancer Patients’ Views on the Family Changes and the Family Social
           Support

    • Abstract: When someone is diagnosed with cancer, their entire family is affected. This study investigates how patients with cancer perceive changes in their family and the types of support provided by family members. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with eight individuals with cancer (seven women and one man, average age: 55.5 years). The individuals were diagnosed with various types of cancer and had no relapses. Analysed thematically, the results showed two axes, the changes axis (positive, negative and ambivalent changes) and the support axis (emotional and practical support and support adequacy). The results revealed many close links between elements on the two axes. The limitations of the study and future research are also discussed. Published on 2018-04-16 18:03:19
       
  • Registered Replication Report: Testing Disruptive Effects of Irrelevant
           Speech on Visual-Spatial Working Memory

    • Abstract: A Partial Replication of “Functional Equivalence of Verbal and Spatial Information in Serial Short-Term Memory (Jones, Farrand, Stuart, & Morris, 1995; Experiment 4)” The irrelevant speech effect (ISE)—the phenomenon that background speech impairs serial recall of visually presented material—has been widely used for examining the structure of short-term memory. In Experiment 4, Jones, Farrand, Stuart, and Morris (1995) employed the ISE to demonstrate that impairment of performance is determined by the changing-state characteristics of the material, rather than its modality of origin. The present study directly replicated the spatial condition of Experiment 4 with N = 40 German participants. In contrast to the original findings, no main effect of sound type was observed, F(2, 78) = 0.81, p = .450, η2p = .02. The absence of an ISE in the spatial domain does not support the changing state hypothesis. Published on 2018-04-06 14:40:24
       
  • Does the Association between Workplace Bullying and Post-Traumatic Stress
           Symptoms differ across Educational Groups'

    • Abstract: The aim of this study was to investigate whether the level of reported post-traumatic stress (PTSD) symptoms among targets of workplace bullying differ depending on their educational level. Exposure to workplace bullying was assessed by the behavioural experience method and the self-labelling method among 563 Danish employees. PTSD symptoms were assessed by the Impact of Event Scale – Revised. Educational level was measured as years of education. The results showed that workplace bullying was significantly associated with the reporting of PTSD symptoms. However, PTSD symptoms were not reported differently among those with experience of work-place bullying. Implementing bullying policies is an important step in promoting a healthy psychosocial working environment. All targets of workplace bullying would benefit from interventions aiming to reduce progression of PTSD symptoms. Published on 2018-01-17 18:17:23
       
  • Construal Level Theory and Moral Judgments: How Thinking Abstractly
           Modifies Morality

    • Abstract: Research based on construal level theory has shown that whether objects and events are construed as abstract or concrete is a major factor in influencing people’s moral judgments. The aim of this literature review is to describe and evaluate empirical research that has investigated the relationship between construal level and moral judgments. Although most reviewed studies show that abstract thinking leads to stronger moral judgments, inconsistencies exist and gaps in the literature remain. This is due to methodological limitations and differences in theoretical standpoints, which will subsequently be discussed. Suggestions for future research are offered.

  • Semantic Priming with Homonymous Nouns: Hints of Clarifying the Issue of
           Selective vs. Non-Selective Priming

    • Abstract: In this study, ways of accessing information about ambiguous words were tested. The non-selective access hypothesis states that all meanings of an ambiguous word are activated for retrieval. In contrast the selective access hypothesis predicates that only the meaning that fits the semantic context is accessed. To test this, 29 students (Age: 21.7 years [SD = 3.09]; 12 males, 17 females) were given a lexical decision task in order to record reaction times. Each trial had three stimuli while the second stimulus consists of a lexical ambiguity (e.g., bank). We found no difference in reaction times and error rates between conditions with and without semantic association, which favours the non-selective access hypothesis.

  • Cognitive Theories of Depression in Online Peer Support Forums: Exploring
           the Cognitive Triad

    • Abstract: This paper explores peer communication in an online support forum for depression, through displays of Beck’s cognitive triad. Theoretical semantic thematic analysis of the textual conversations of forum users generated preliminary information on the internet as a platform for the manifestation of depressive symptoms. The study consisted of a two-phase approach. Phase one looked for demonstration of the cognitive triad in user conversations. Phase two analysed how users depicted and responded to peer cognitive distortions, and will form a separate publication. Findings suggest that the cognitive triad is evident in the online textual communication of peer support group members. The practical applications and limitations of the research are discussed in terms of recommendations for future work. Published on 2017-08-04 11:33:30
       
  • The Role of Short Term Psychological and Somatic Anxiety in the Prediction
           of Long Term Anxiety of Early Hospital Discharged Patients with Complete
           Functional Recovery after a Mild Stroke

    • Abstract: Few previous investigations have focused on post-stroke anxiety (PSA) predictors in mild stroke patients. The aim of the study was to determine whether anxiety-related psychological symptoms and psychomotor agitation predict PSA. We compared 10 anxious and 10 non-anxious patients at 6 months post-stroke (T2) to their psychological anxiety and psychomotor agitation levels 3 months earlier (T1). Anxious patients had more psychological anxiety symptoms than non-anxious patients. Overall T2 anxiety was strongly correlated with T1 psychological anxiety. Thus, psychological symptoms are a better predictor of PSA than somatic symptoms of anxiety. Those results could improve PSA diagnosis and prognosis by directing clinicians to pay particular attention to psychological anxiety after a stroke, even in early discharged patients with complete functional recovery.

  • Does Bilingualism Delay the Development of Dementia'

    • Abstract: It has been suggested that bilingualism (where individuals speak two languages) may delay the development of dementia. However, much of the research is inconclusive. Some researchers have reported that bilingualism delays the onset and diagnosis of dementia, whilst other studies have found weak or even detrimental effects. This paper reviews a series of nine empirical studies, published up until March 2016, which investigated whether bilingualism significantly delays the onset of dementia. The article also explores whether the inconsistent findings can be attributed to differences in study designs or the definitions of bilingualism used between studies. Based on current evidence, it appears that lifelong bilingualism, where individuals frequently use both languages, may be protective against dementia. However, becoming bilingual in adulthood or using the second language infrequently is unlikely to substantially delay onset of the disease.  Published on 2016-08-31 08:13:40
       
  • Verbal Sexual Coercion among a US College Sample: Patterns of Sexual
           Boundary Violations and Predictive Factors

    • Abstract: The present study examined verbal sexual coercion. The behaviors which fall under the general label verbal sexual coercion are examined in more depth and categorized in seven behaviors named sexual boundary violations (SBVs). We aimed to explore patterns of SBVs and hypothesized that impulsivity and psychopathy predict SBVs. We analyzed secondary data gathered from a 2009 online survey of sexual behaviors. The participants were 430 sophomores (296 females and 134 males) from an urban south-western university in the US. We ran three stages of analysis: factor analyses to detect patterns of SBVs; hierarchical regression models to determine the predictive value of the hypothesized traits; and t-tests to explore sex differences. The results showed that men used SBVs more often than women. Two factors emerged, labelled “Disguised” and “Undisguised” SBVs. Male sex, sensitivity to temptation, and poorer executive functioning predicted undisguised SBVs. We discuss how these findings can inform future interventions.

  • Parental Divorce and Attitudes and Feelings toward Marriage and Divorce in
           Emerging Adulthood: New Insights from a Multiway-Frequency Analysis

    • Abstract: Experiencing parental divorce can exert long-term consequences on children’s attitudes toward marriage and divorce. Participants’ opinions on marriage and divorce were qualitatively coded and two themes selected based on Willoughby’s theoretical framework. Multiway frequency analyses (MFA) were used to investigate associations between empirically based factors (derived from previous empirical studies) and participants’ endorsement of the two themes. Four hundred and forty six participants between 18 and 25 years-old, including 217 participants from divorced households, were interviewed. Young adults’ optimism toward marital relationships was related to more proximal factors and a lesser number of factors than young adults’ positive attitude toward divorce. Religious affiliation and parental conflict stood out as important factors. Recommendations are offered for future research. Published on 2016-04-15 14:57:30
