  • A Concept Analysis of the Form that Trans-forms as a Result of
           Transformation

    • Abstract: Two decades ago, renowned developmental psychologist Robert Kegan made a resounding call to investigate and make explicit, the form that undergoes fundamental change during human transformation. He explained that without precise understanding of the form, “there is no transformation” (Kegan, 2000, p. 48). A review of literature found that this literature gap remains and as such, this study aims to clarify “What form transforms as a result of human biopsychospiritual transformation'”  The method to achieve this goal is a concept analysis, which constitutes an empirical examination of a concept described in literature, where a concept---transformation in this case---is the research object. The outcomes illustrate that three structures change form (i.e., transform): the ego, mind, and body. Results reject that consciousness is a human form that transforms. An unexpected finding suggests the content of the life-changing experience (e.g., epiphany) indicates the form that will transform (i.e., the mind) and also the form through which consciousness emerges (i.e., increased consciousness of the mind).

  • Psychosocial Stress and Problems toward Infertility: A Pilot Study of
           Differences between Immigrant and Nonimmigrant Infertile Couples in
           Toronto, Canada

    • Abstract: The purpose of this study was to explore the psychosocial stress and problems regarding infertility and to compare the differences in these two variables on infertile couples in Canada. Fifty infertile, heterosexual individuals were selected as the study participants by convenient sampling. Participants filled out three questionnaires after their infertility appointment and were divided into two groups, depending on their immigration status. The data were analyzed using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS.26). Significant differences in infertility stress and psychosocial problems existed between these two groups, with immigrants’ scores significantly higher than nonimmigrants’ scores. Years of marriage showed positive relationships with infertility stress and problems. In addition, a positive relationship existed between years of infertility and infertility problems. Furthermore, a significant negative relationship existed between the length of time living in Canada and infertility stress. The results of this study enhanced our knowledge of psychosocial stress and problems faced by infertile couples. Findings suggest that immigrants had more infertility stress and problems than nonimmigrants. Understanding infertile couples’ stress and problems provides the basis for informing and changing nursing practices on how to work with infertile couples, adjusting health policy related to infertility treatment, and needing future research in this area.

  • Doodle Away: Exploring the Effects of Doodling on Recall Ability of High
           School Students

    • Abstract: Doodling is often misinterpreted as a distraction to students in an academic setting– a hindrance to learning. However, recent research has shown that doodling may be beneficial to learning and memory retention. The current study expands upon previous research by investigating the impact of structured and unstructured doodling on auditory recall. This experiment was designed using a multi-method quantitative approach with an experiment that consisted of a control, structured doodling, and unstructured doodling group, and a questionnaire to assess students’ doodling experience. A group of 39 high school juniors were chosen for this study. In all three conditions, students listened to a history lecture in their normal classroom circumstances and took a quiz over the information afterward. Students doodled in both experimental conditions– they shaded a structured doodling sheet in the first condition and doodled in a blank, white A4 sheet in the second condition. The results indicated that those in the structured and unstructured doodling group performed significantly better than those in the control group, with structured doodling scoring the highest out of the three. The Post Doodling Questionnaire indicated that the majority of students experienced less daydreaming and increased recall while doodling; furthermore, the majority of students reported doodling naturalistically.

  • Organizational Culture and Its Relationship with Employee Stress,
           Enjoyment of Work and Productivity

    • Abstract: Despite a recent resurgence in the study of organizational culture, insufficient attention has been paid to the impact of the types of organizational culture on employee well-being and productivity in Canadian settings. This study investigated which types of organizational culture are most closely related to employee levels of work-related stress, enjoyment of work and self-perceived productivity. A secondary research interest was to identify the dominant culture type at the studied university in northern Canada. A total of 193 staff members from various departments (e.g., academic services, facilities, student life) completed an online survey containing questions on organizational culture, stress, enjoyment of work and productivity. Three intriguing findings were generated from the data: (1) All four types of organizational culture – clan, hierarchy, adhocracy, market – were identified at the institution; (2) the hierarchy culture was most prevalent, followed by the adhocracy culture, the market culture and then the clan culture; and (3) the type of organizational culture was significantly related to stress, enjoyment of work and productivity. Employees working in a clan culture reported the lowest levels of stress, and highest levels of enjoyment and productivity, followed by those in the adhocracy and hierarchy cultures, lastly the market culture. Important implications include: (1) Organizational leaders need to take into account the role organizational culture plays in employee well-being and workplace functioning, and (2) Organizational leaders should implement strategies to create a workplace culture that promotes employee well-being and productivity.

  • The Impact of a Career Group Counseling Mix Model on Satisfaction of
           Low-achieving College Students──Specialty-Oriented Career Exploration
           Group Counseling

    • Abstract: The unique feature of the group counseling program in this study is the integration of group counseling, individual counseling and peer tutoring. This study aims to determine the satisfaction level of low-achieving college students, who participated in the "Specialty-oriented Career Exploration" group counseling mix model. This study is an action research that lasts one semester. The research samples are 12 low-achieving freshmen students in the Finance Department of a business university (these students, as recommended by the class mentor, achieved average performance in the last fifth tier in their first semester), who participated in all three phases of career group counseling mix model. The unique feature of the group counseling program instituted in this study is the integration of group counseling, individual counseling and peer tutoring: (1) Phase 1: Group counseling before the mid-term exams, which included the design of structured career group counseling activities that were held eight times in eight weeks; (2) Phase 2: Individual counseling performed after mid-term exams; (3) Peer tutoring added to the process. According to the statistical analysis results of the satisfaction questionnaire, the results of the questionnaire show that they are very satisfied with the appropriateness of the overall planning (M=4.8; S=0.16); and that Specialty-oriented Career Counseling mix model is very helpfulimportant for individuals thinking about future careers (M=4.6; S=0.24).  The preventive measures adopted by the career counseling program received positive responses from students who participated in this career counseling group mix model, that they then became familiar with the counseling center. Group members who had serious emotional and interpersonal problems were willing to seek out counselors in the collage counseling center and continue with individual counseling. This study recommended that individual counseling or peer tutoring can be arranged after specialty-oriented career exploration group counseling, in order to meet the career counseling needs for various low-achieving college students. Lastly, this study offers specific suggestions, based on the research results, for "specialty-oriented career group counseling" in higher education to enhance the diversified contents of college career counseling.
