  • The Mediating Role of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder with Tendency to
           
    • Authors: Weinberg M.
      Pages: 147 - 154
      Abstract: The study reported in this article examined the relationship between psychosocial functioning and tendency to forgive, social support, and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms of terror survivors (N = 108). Structural equation modeling was used to examine whether PTSD symptoms mediated the association between tendency to forgive, social support, and psychosocial functioning. The findings demonstrated that the association between tendency to forgive and psychosocial functioning was mediated exclusively by PTSD symptoms, whereas the association between social support and psychosocial functioning was partially mediated by PTSD symptoms. The study reinforces the importance of addressing trauma survivors’ psychosocial functioning as an emotional state associated with tendency to forgive, social support, and PTSD symptoms. In addition, the findings suggest that when treating trauma survivors, therapists should be aware of PTSD not only as an emotional consequence of trauma, but also as a mediator of numerous emotional and cognitive coping mechanisms.

  • The Antecedent of Organizational Outcomes Is Psychological Capital
    • Authors: Durukan Köse S; Köse T, Uğurluoğlu Ö.
      Pages: 155 - 164
      Abstract: Psychological capital (PsyCap), which provides a new outlook on the fields of human resources and organizational behavior, is the entirety of positive and improvable features of an individual. An employee’s PsyCap can be positively or negatively affected by a social worker’s perceptions and beliefs. The purpose of this study was to assess the impact of PsyCap on the job satisfaction and organizational commitment of health care personnel. Data collection was performed through a survey of 501 health care personnel at a public university hospital in Turkey. Structural equation modeling (path analysis) was conducted to test the hypotheses. As a result of the analyses, it was determined that PsyCap positively affects job satisfaction and organizational commitment. In addition, subdimensions of PsyCap—optimism and hope—positively affected job satisfaction, whereas optimism had a positive effect on organizational commitment.

  • Safety Fears Held by Caregivers about Relatives with Psychiatric Disorders
    • Authors: Labrum T; Solomon P.
      Pages: 165 - 174
      Abstract: In this period of post-deinstitutionalization, much of the care for people with severe psychiatric disorders (PD) is provided by their families. A primary stressor for caregivers is fears regarding their own safety and that of others, which has been virtually unexplored. To fill this gap, factors in three domains were assessed: (1) relatives with PD, (2) family caregivers, and (3) interactions with each other. This investigation was a secondary analysis of data obtained from a national survey of caregivers of adults with mental illness conducted by the National Alliance for Caregiving. A subsample of 1,505 was used in the present study. Fear of harm was positively associated with the following factors: relatives with PD—serious mental health problem, alcohol and substance abuse, receipt of crisis mental health treatment, history of arrest; interaction—greater difficulty getting relative to take medications as prescribed; and fear that relative would be hurt by others or die by suicide. Social workers need to be cognizant of risk of potential violence against caregivers and ensure the safety of these family members, even if they may not be their primary clients. The article includes recommendations for family inclusion in the treatment of people with PD.

  • Commissioning Parents’ Experiences with International Surrogacy: A
           Qualitative Study
    • Authors: Gezinski L; Karandikar S, Huber S, et al.
      Pages: 175 - 184
      Abstract: The purpose of this qualitative study was to explore the experiences of commissioning parents (CPs) who travel abroad for surrogacy, paying attention to motivations, processes, and sources of social support. The authors recruited 10 CPs and used semistructured, in-depth interviews to illicit storytelling. Data analysis revealed primary themes around CPs’ experiences pre-surrogacy, during surrogacy, and post-surrogacy. International surrogacy was described as a long and arduous journey only undertaken after multiple failed attempts at “natural” conception. Prior to traveling abroad, CPs engaged in trade-off decision making, weighing their reproductive assistance options. CPs were primarily motivated to undertake international surrogacy by health complications and legal restrictions in their home country. CPs emphasized strenuous relationships in both the destination country and at home, and they worried about disclosure to family, friends, and children. The mental health and social needs of CPs were neglected throughout and should be incorporated in future interventions to address stigmatization.

  • Prayer and Faith: Spiritual Coping among American Indian Women Cancer
           Survivors
    • Authors: Roh S; Burnette C, Lee Y.
      Pages: 185 - 192
      Abstract: Although cancer disparities among American Indian (AI) women are alarming, research on spiritual coping among this population is virtually nonexistent. This is particularly problematic, given the importance of medical practitioners’ discussing the topic with cancer patients, along with the centrality of spirituality to many AI patients. The purpose of this article was to explore AI women cancer survivors’ spiritual coping with their experiences. Using a community-based participatory research approach, this qualitative descriptive study included a sample of 43 AI women cancer survivors (n = 14 breast cancer, n = 14 cervical cancer, and n = 15 colon and other types of cancer). Qualitative content analysis revealed that most participants (76 percent, n = 32) cited prayer as an important part of their cancer recovery and coping strategies. Many participants expressed how prayer and spirituality connected them to family, to faith communities, and to others. In addition to prayer, over a third (36 percent, n = 15) of participants emphasized faith as a recovery and coping strategy. Results indicate that most women drew great comfort, strength, hope, and relief from their spiritual and faith traditions, indicating that religious and spiritual practices may be an important protective factor against the strain of the cancer experience.

  • Developing a Computer Application to Prepare Social Workers for Integrated
           Health Care: Integrated Healthcare (Version 1.0)
    • Authors: Black D; Held M, Wyatt T.
      Pages: 193 - 200
      Abstract: Integrated health care (IHC) is a proposed change to the U.S. health care system to address health care disparities for individuals with mental and physical health conditions. Computer applications may provide an effective strategy to prepare social workers for the transition to IHC. An Internet-based tool, Integrated Healthcare (Version 1.0) was developed and tested through rapid prototyping to access knowledge required for behavioral health providers to practice in IHC settings. Two focus groups (N = 5, N = 7) and individual interviews (N = 5) were conducted with social work professors and students. Nielsen’s usability heuristics were used to evaluate data from focus groups and interviews, and changes were incorporated in development. The final computer application is an introduction to IHC concepts, reinforces the integrated nature of physical and behavioral health, and puts evidence-based knowledge at the point of care.
