  • Socialization in Multicultural Space: Determinations and Conditions

    • Abstract: Publication date:  May 2018
      Source:Universal Journal of Psychology  Volume  6  Number  2  Martsinkovskaya T   Chumicheva I   and Khuzeeva G   Relevance and significance of socialization in the modern changing and multicultural space is connected both with social transitivity and expansion of interpersonal and intergroup communication. Globalization and mass migrations of people spread out socialization borders and demand the positive attitude towards norms and standards of native and foreign culture. These assumptions were tested in the course of empirical research of teenager's socialization in the megalopolis (Moscow) and the capital of Karelia Petrozavodsk. Teenagers from Petrozavodsk represent ethnically homogeneous group, the teenagers living in Moscow belonged to 9 ethnic groups. The obtained data showed the general for modern generation of the Russian youth tendency of essential increase of personal identity. In Karelia this tendency connected with orientation to the outside world and "mixed" ethic identity. This phenomenology increase tolerance to uncertainty and raise socialization's potentials in the multicultural environment. The materials received in Moscow allow allocating three levels of determination in teenager's socialization. This is the space of the big city which gives many variants of socialization and can be considered as the translator of common cultural and civil values. The second determinant is development's aims which unite teenagers of different ethnic groups. The third level is the nearest environment of the teenager. The received materials show that for socialization in multicultural environment is extremely important to give teenagers various sociocultural and ethnic patterns of socialization, which give the chance of self-realization in many spheres to teenagers of different ethnic groups.

  • Homicide in Pregnant and Postpartum Women: A Review of the Literature

    • Abstract: Publication date:  May 2018
      Source:Universal Journal of Psychology  Volume  6  Number  2  Charlotte Cliffe   Access to better care and advances in obstetric medicine have led to a global reduction in maternal mortality rate. Although obstetric-related causes of death have decreased, the numbers of deaths relating to injuries have remained static. Suicide has been recognised as a significant cause of overall perinatal mortality. However there has been less consideration of the role of maternal homicide as a contributor to pregnancy-associated mortality. This review reports on international literature on maternal homicide. Rates were reported from 0.97 to 10.6 per 100 000 live births. Pregnancy-associated homicide rates were higher in the United States compared with other countries; it is unclear whether this is due to better case identification or represents an actual difference in risk. Women murdered in the perinatal period constituted a highly vulnerable group: they were younger, more likely to be from minority ethnic groups and unmarried. Domestic violence was a significant risk factor for attempted and completed homicide. This review demonstrates pregnancy–associated homicide is an important contributor to maternal mortality with rates comparable to suicide. Central to any strategy will be the identification of those at risk and these findings add to the importance of screening for current and previous domestic violence.

           School Counseling Self-efficacy Expectations and Delivery System
           Components

    • Abstract: Publication date:  May 2018
      Source:Universal Journal of Psychology  Volume  6  Number  2  Aliye Işık Tokmak   and Ragıp Özyürek   In this study, the relationships between school counselors' vocational satisfactions, their school counseling self-efficacy expectations and delivery system components were examined. The research participants of this study were two different samples of counselors who work one of the cities in the west of Turkey. The number of participants in each sample is 150. According to findings, positive correlations were obtained between counselors' vocational satisfactions and their school counseling self-efficacy expectations, and time spent conducting school counseling tasks with students / consultants in face-to-face interaction and negative correlations were found with conducting non-counseling duties. The findings also showed that there may be a positive relationship between vocational satisfactions and self-efficacy expectations and the number of clients participating in individual counseling sessions, the number of individual counseling sessions, the number of large group counseling sessions, the number of periodical individual planning interviewing and a negative relationship the number of small group guidance sessions and the number of conferences the counselors gave to the students. In the discussion section, the similarities between these findings and the findings in the previous studies were discussed and some suggestions were given to the researchers.

The research in the CCCartola, an excluded community of Afro-Brazilian origin, shows that samba is the largest "host agent", where individuals develop potential through socio-educational activities.

  • Introduction of Magnanimous Psychotherapy

    • Abstract: Publication date:  Jul 2018
      Source:Universal Journal of Psychology  Volume  6  Number  3  Huang Xuewei   The founding of magnanimous therapy (MT) was inspired by psychological characteristics of long-term cancer survivors. Our empirical research for probing into how cancer patients can live longer with a high quality of life, and related studies, showed that being magnanimous was the important psychological characteristic of long-term cancer survivors (≥ 5 years post-diagnosis) with a good quality of life. MT is based on helping cancer patients to adjust and achieve a magnanimous mental state. The theoretical soul of this therapy is that a magnanimous state can become an individual's cognitive habit, and psychological and behavioral mode, through a series of professional interventions. The habit and the mode can also get into one's unconscious and soul, and thus will be a part of one's cognition, emotion and behavior and be a part of one's lifestyle. The characteristics of the therapy include being simple and easy to conduct, diversiform and attractive. The main forms of the MT consist of computer MT and operator MT, story MT and game MT, etc. The pilot controlled clinical trials showed improvements within the mental composite, general health, mental health and social functioning of clients after MT intervention. It can be applied to cancer patients, depressive patients and any patients with emotional problems.

  • A Study of Gender Differences of Attitudes toward Date Rape among Chinese
           University Students

    • Abstract: Publication date:  Feb 2018
      Source:Universal Journal of Psychology  Volume  6  Number  1  Peitzu Lee   He Kaiwen   and Deng Jiayi   The purpose of this study was to investigate differences in attitudes towards date rape between genders in Mainland Chinese university students, given the fact that there is little research about attitudes toward date rape, which is defined as the occurring of forcible intercourse between two parties in romantic or potentially sexual relationship, among Chinese people. 104 male and 117 female university students, aged from 17 to 27 were asked to complete the Attitudes towards Forcible Date Rape (FDR) Scale online. The findings showed that female students rejected date rape-tolerant attitudes more than their male counterparts. Also, female students expressed more disagreement with the belief that forcible intercourse on a date is acceptable under certain conditions, compared to the male students. The current findings suggest that there is indeed a need for education concerning consent versus rape in mainland China.

  • What Impact does an Adult Substance User Have on Mothers, and How Do They
           Make Sense of Their Experience'

    • Abstract: Publication date:  Feb 2018
      Source:Universal Journal of Psychology  Volume  6  Number  1  Ingela Clare Jackson   Previous research has focused on the impact of substance use on the whole family system, and whether certain family dynamics are common in families with substance use in them. This research, conducted in the UK, explores the specific experience of being a mother of a substance user and their phenomenological experience from the perspective of mothering metanarratives in western cultures today. The findings were complex due to the amount of data, but the theme of loss ran through all of the impacts, as well as being a major part of how the participants made sense of their experience. Loss was therefore the focus for studying the impact on the participants. The findings showed the complexity of mothering for this group of women and how their experience is largely misunderstood and unsupported in our society, where mother blaming is culturally acceptable.

           in a Psychiatric Hospital in Rwanda

    • Abstract: Publication date:  Feb 2018
      Source:Universal Journal of Psychology  Volume  6  Number  1  Alfred Ngirababyeyi   Charles Mudenge   and Eric Constant   Aims: This quantitative study investigated the attitudes toward people with mental illness among professionals working in Ndera neuropsychiatric hospital in Rwanda. The purpose of this study was to determine whether there are differences in attitudes between direct care providers and supportive professionals towards the people with mental illness. Methods: The Community Attitudes towards Mentally Ill (CAMI) scale (Dear & Taylor, 1982) was used. A total of 72 members of the staff, including 55 directly involved staff members and 17 support staff members, participated in the survey. Results: The mean score is 3.98 for authoritarianism, 3.75 for social restrictiveness, 3.88 for benevolence, and 3.87 for community mental health ideology attitudes subscales. There is no statistically significant difference between the two groups in their overall scale scores. However, directly involved staff members had a greater mean score on many individual items (P≥0.05). Demographic variables did not account for the variance within the two groups (P≥0.05). 87.27% of our respondents think that staff members, patients and family members can be involved in the decision making process and 70.59% appreciate that it is good to involve staff, patients and family relatives in this process. Negative attitudes towards people with mental illness admitted to Ndera neuropsychiatric hospital are also present, even though the majority of our respondents have favorable attitudes towards the people with mental illness. There is the need to explore the influence of staff attitudes on the delivery of high quality healthcare.
