  • A Two-Dimensional Framework for Analyzing Facebook Use and Subjective

    • Authors: Cecilia Cheng
      Pages: 67 - 73
      Abstract: The present research aimed to organize the array of Facebook activities by proposing a framework that comprises two dimensions: mode of Facebook communication and motive of Facebook use.  Our research also aimed to address the less explored issue of users’ appraisals in addition to their Facebook use.  A new measure, the Facebook Use and Satisfaction Scale, was constructed. Among 155 undergraduates (43% men, mean age = 21.02 years), the results indicated that satisfaction with both private and public social communication was positively linked with positive affect but not negative affect.  More importantly, satisfaction with private social communication explained 9% of the variance in positive affect beyond that explained by perceived peer support.  These results point to the utility of the proposed two-dimensional framework in the study of Facebook satisfaction.

    • Authors: Lathifah Hanum, Dharmayati Bambang Utoyo, Edo Sebastian Jaya
      Pages: 74 - 80
      Abstract: There have been numerous investigations regarding the prevalence of common psychological problems among the older adults, but the majority of them are conducted in a Western setting. This study attempts to provide some data on the mental health of Indonesian older adults, specifically: stress, chronic pain acceptance, depression, and insomnia. The result shows that prevalence of psychological problems is high and comparable to result from the Western studies. Unfortunately, even though the rate of psychological problems cases is similar to the West, access to psychological services is still very far from Western standard. Keywords: Indonesian older adults; stress; chronic pain acceptance; depression; insomnia

           Personal Safety Skills for Down syndrome Adolescent with Mild Intellectual

    • Authors: Dewi Kumalasari
      Pages: 81 - 89
      Abstract: This study aimed to examine the effectiveness of Behavioral Skills Training (BST) program in improving personal safety skills for a Down syndrome adolescent with mild intellectual disability. Personal safety is defined as an ability to recognize touch appropriateness, including four self-protective skills, consisting of resisting, removing, telling others, and reporting about any inappropriate touch she/he experiences. The single-subject design was administered in three days. The results show that the program was effective to improved subject’s personal safety skills and reached 97 % of the maximum score. The subject was able to master the skills of recognizing, resisting, removing and telling others with 100% score, while on the reporting skill, the obtained score was 83%.  Rerunning the program, specifically with reporting skill as the target, has been recommended to improve reporting skill. Overall, to improve the effectiveness of the program, in situ training, training for trainers, and providing reinforcements are suggested.

  • How a Leader Transforms Employees’ Psychological Empowerment Into
           Innovative Work Behavior

    • Authors: Rahadi Prabowo, Martina Dwi Mustika, Bertina Sjabadhyni
      Pages: 90 - 99
      Abstract: Businesses, especially those in urban areas, rely on innovation as the crucible of growth. Businesses must adapt to current and future conditions of their markets, consumers, and the demands of globalization. Therefore, innovation is central to a business’ success. We argue that psychological empowerment indirectly influences the relationship between transformational leadership and innovative work behavior. A transformational leader spurs their employees’ capability and efficacy. As a result, employees feel valued by the company, which encourages them to be innovative in the workplace. Thus, the employee can be innovative, without fearing the reprimand of superiors. This research surveyed 292 employees from different organization types (e.g., private sector, public sector, and nongovernmental organizations) in urban areas. The results of the study’s mediation analysis demonstrate that innovative work behavior is the outcome of the psychological empowerment from transformational leadership. Therefore, we argue that a transformational leader tends to empower their employees psychologically, which may improve employees’ ability to be more innovative at work. There are some limitations of this research (e.g., research design, adaptation of measuring instruments, and statistical remedies that have not been optimally implemented). The researchers provide suggestions regarding countermeasures for common method bias, which are outlined in the Discussion section.
