  • Revisiting the Relationship Between Acculturation and Smoking Cessation
           Among Mexican Americans
    • Authors: Castro Y; Vinci C, Heppner W, et al.
      Pages: 211 - 222
      Abstract: AbstractBackgroundA well-established gender-differentiated association between acculturation and current smoking exists among Latino adults. There are far fewer studies on the potential influence of acculturation on smoking cessation, and extant findings are mixed.PurposeUsing a multidimensional measure of acculturation, the current study examined the independent and interactive associations of gender and acculturation with smoking cessation among Mexican American smokers engaged in a quit attempt.MethodsUsing a latent variable modeling approach to repeated measures analysis, the independent and interaction effects of acculturation in two cultural directions (American and Mexican) were examined for their prospective associations with smoking abstinence. Interactions of acculturation domains with gender were also examined. Acculturation was assessed at baseline and abstinence status was assessed at 3 and 26 weeks post-quit.ResultsThe interaction of American and Mexican cultural identity was significantly associated with smoking abstinence, such that greater American cultural identity was positively associated with abstinence only among those with high Mexican cultural identity. The interaction of English proficiency with gender was significant such that English proficiency was positively associated with abstinence among men but not women.ConclusionsFindings in the cultural identity domain are consistent with a “benefits of biculturalism” perspective, and may be particularly relevant to the adoption of an American cultural orientation among persons with an already-strong heritage-culture orientation. Findings also replicate a gender-differentiated association between acculturation and cessation. Implications for treatment development and future research are discussed.

  • Romantic Relationship Satisfaction and Ambulatory Blood Pressure During
           Social Interactions: Specificity or Spillover Effects'
    • Authors: Cornelius T; Birk J, Edmondson D, et al.
      Pages: 223 - 231
      Abstract: AbstractBackgroundPeople in high-quality romantic relationships tend to have lower blood pressure (BP). People may experience lower BP specifically when interacting with romantic partners.PurposeThis study parsed the effects of different types of social interactions on ambulatory BP (ABP) and tested whether romantic relationship satisfaction moderated these effects during interactions with partners in particular (specificity) or with others (spillover; e.g., friends, co-workers).MethodsPartnered participants (N = 594) were drawn from a larger study on BP and cardiovascular health (age = 46.5 ± 9.3; 57.4% female). Participants reported on romantic relationship satisfaction and completed 24-hr ABP monitoring. At each reading, participants reported whether they had a social interaction and with whom. Multilevel models accounted for nesting of data over time.ResultsRomantic relationship satisfaction significantly modified the effects of some social interactions on systolic and diastolic BP (SBP, DBP). Participants with high (+1 SD) relationship satisfaction had significantly lower SBP (−0.77 mmHg, p = .02) during partner interactions compared with no social interaction; low-satisfaction (−1 SD) participants had a nonsignificant 0.59 mmHg increase (p = .14). A similar pattern emerged for DBP. Relationship satisfaction also modified SBP response during friend interactions (elevated SBP for low-satisfaction participants) and DBP response during “other” interactions (elevated DBP for high-satisfaction participants).ConclusionParticipants with high levels of romantic relationship satisfaction experienced significantly lower BP during social interactions with their partner compared with situations without social interaction. Although there was some evidence for spillover to other types of relationships, effects were largely restricted to partner interactions.

  • Understanding Why Pictorial Cigarette Pack Warnings Increase Quit Attempts
    • Authors: Brewer N, Parada H, Jr; Hall M, et al.
      Pages: 232 - 243
      Abstract: AbstractBackgroundOur randomized trial found that pictorial cigarette pack warnings elicited more quit attempts than text-only warnings.PurposeIn the current study, we sought to identify psychological mechanisms that explain why pictorial cigarette pack warnings change behavior.MethodsIn 2014 and 2015, we recruited 2,149 adult smokers in NC and CA, USA. We randomly assigned smokers to receive on their cigarette packs for 4 weeks either a text-only warning (one of the USA’s current warnings on the side of cigarette packs) or a pictorial warning (one of the USA’s proposed text warnings with pictures on the top half of the front and back of cigarette packs).ResultsPictorial warnings increased attention to, reactions to, and social interactions about cigarette pack warnings (all p < .05). However, pictorial warnings changed almost no belief or attitude measures. Mediators of the impact of pictorial warnings included increased attention, negative affect, social interactions, thinking about the warning and harms of smoking, and intentions to quit (all p < .05). Analyses also found that pictorial warnings led to greater avoidance of the warnings, which was associated with more quit attempts (p < .05).ConclusionsPictorial warnings increased quit attempts by eliciting aversive reactions and by keeping the message vividly in smokers’ minds. Contrary to predictions from several theories of health behavior, the warnings exerted little of their influence through changes in beliefs and attitudes and none of their influence through changes in risk perception. We propose the Tobacco Warnings Model based on these findings.Clinical Trial identifier: NCT02247908;

      Abstract: AbstractBackgroundFear of cancer recurrence (FCR) is a top ongoing concern of breast cancer (BC) survivors and thus the focus of recent intervention development. The Self-Regulation Model of FCR (Lee-Jones C, Humphris G, Dixon R, Hatcher MB. Fear of cancer recurrence–a literature review and proposed cognitive formulation to explain exacerbation of recurrence fears. Psychooncology. 1997;6:95–105.) states that everyday cancer-related events trigger FCR, which, in turn, leads to specific behavioral responses, including checking the body for signs or symptoms of cancer. Links between triggering events, FCR, and checking behavior have not yet been studied in the context of daily life or at the within-person level.PurposeThe goal of this study was to examine whether FCR has a within-person link with daily checking behavior and whether FCR mediates the link between triggering events and checking behavior.MethodsSeventy-two early-stage BC survivors completed daily diaries over a 21-day period approximately 5 months after BC surgery. FCR, checking behavior, and triggering events were assessed each evening.ResultsMultilevel modeling results indicated that FCR predicted greater odds of same-day, but not next-day, checking behavior. We found that daily FCR significantly mediated the same-day effect of triggering events on checking behavior. These average within-person effects varied substantially between patients and were not explained by momentary negative affect.ConclusionsFindings support the within-person relationship between triggering events, FCR, and checking behavior posited by guiding theory, and can inform FCR intervention development.

  • Smoking and Physical Activity Explain the Increased Mortality Risk
           Following Marital Separation and Divorce: Evidence From the English
           Longitudinal Study of Ageing
    • Authors: Bourassa K; Ruiz J, Sbarra D.
      Pages: 255 - 266
      Abstract: AbstractBackgroundMarital separation and divorce are associated with an increased risk of early mortality, but the specific biobehavioral pathways that explain this association remain largely unknown.PurposeThis study sought to identify the putative psychological, behavioral, and biomarker variables that can help explain the association of being separated or divorced and increased risk for early mortality.MethodsUsing data from the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing, a representative community sample of aging adults (N = 5,786), we examined the association of marital status and life satisfaction, health behaviors measured 2 years later, biomarkers measured 4 years later, and mortality outcomes from the subsequent 4 years.ResultsConsistent with prior literature, older adults who were separated/divorced evidenced greater risk of mortality relative to those in intact marriages over the study period, OR = 1.46, 95% CI [1.15, 1.86]. Marital status was associated with lower levels of life satisfaction, β = −0.22 [−0.25, −0.19] and greater likelihood of smoking 2 years later β = 0.17 [0.13, 0.21]. Lower life satisfaction predicted less frequent physical activity 2 years later, β = 0.07 [0.03, 0.10]. Smoking, but not physical activity, predicted poorer lung functioning 2 years later, β = −0.43 [−0.51, −0.35], and poorer lung function predicted increased likelihood of mortality over the following 4 years, β = −0.15 [−0.27, −0.03]. There was a significant total indirect effect of marital status on mortality through these psychological, behavioral, and biomarker variables, β = 0.03 [0.01, 0.05], which fully explained this mortality risk.ConclusionsFor separated/divorced adults, differences in life satisfaction predict health behaviors associated with poorer long-term lung function, and these intermediate variables help explain the association between marital dissolution and increased risk of earlier mortality.

  • Parental Expectation of Side Effects Following Vaccination Is
           Self-fulfilling: A Prospective Cohort Study
    • Authors: Smith L; Weinman J, Amlôt R, et al.
      Pages: 267 - 282
      Abstract: AbstractBackgroundOne of the major factors contributing to parental refusal of vaccinations is the perception that vaccines cause side effects. Although symptoms are commonly reported following vaccinations, their causes are not always straightforward. Although some may be directly attributable to the vaccine itself, others may reflect pre-existing or coincidental symptoms that are misattributed to the vaccine.PurposeTo investigate psychological factors associated with parental report of side effects following vaccination with the child influenza vaccine, and parental intention to re-vaccinate one’s child the following year.MethodsA prospective cohort study was run in primary care practices in London in the 2016–2017 influenza season ( number NCT02909855). Two hundred seventy parents from 14 practices completed a questionnaire before their child’s vaccination. Follow-up questionnaires were completed 3 days after vaccination and one month after vaccination. Parental report of side effects and vaccination intention for the subsequent year were measured.ResultsParental report of side effects was strongly associated with pre-vaccination expectation of side effects. Suggestions received from the media, National Health Service (NHS) vaccination leaflet, and health care workers, as well as uncertainty-related beliefs, perceived sensitivity of the child to medicines, pessimism, and anxiety were also associated with reporting side effects. Side effect report was associated with lower vaccination intention for the following influenza season.ConclusionsSide effect perception following vaccination is influenced by psychological factors, in particular expectations. Perceiving side effects reduces future vaccination intention. Future public health communications should aim to decrease unrealistic expectations of side effects to increase vaccine uptake.

  • Discontinuing Treatment Against Medical Advice: The Role of Perceived
    • Authors: Glusman M; Bruce A, Thelen J, et al.
      Pages: 283 - 289
      Abstract: AbstractBackgroundLong-term medication adherence is problematic among patients with chronic medical conditions. To our knowledge, this was the first study to examine factors associated with nonadherence among patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis who discontinue disease-modifying treatments against medical advice.PurposeTo examine differences in perceived provider autonomy support between disease-modifying treatment–adherent relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis patients and relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis patients who discontinued disease-modifying treatments against medical advice.MethodsSelf-report questionnaires and a neurologic exam were administered to demographically matched adherent (n = 50) and nonadherent (n = 79) relapsing- remitting multiple sclerosis patients from the Midwest and Northeast USA.ResultsAdherent patients reported greater perceived autonomy support from their treatment providers, F(1, 124) = 28.170, p < .001, partial η2 = .185. This difference persisted after controlling for current multiple sclerosis healthcare provider, education, disease duration, Expanded Disability Status Scale, perceived barriers to adherence, and prevalence of side effects, F(1, 121) = 9.61, p = .002, partial η2 = .074. Neither depressive symptoms, F(1, 124) = 1.001, p > .05, partial η2 = .009, nor the occurrence of a major depressive episode, χ2(1, N = 129) = .288, p > .05, differed between adherent and nonadherent patients.ConclusionsGreater perceived autonomy support from treatment providers may increase adherence to disease-modifying treatments among patients who discontinue treatment against medical advice. Results may inform interventions for patients who discontinue treatment against medical advice.

  • Early Weight Loss in Behavioral Treatment Predicts Later Rate of Weight
           Loss and Response to Pharmacotherapy
    • Authors: Tronieri J; Wadden T, Chao A, et al.
      Pages: 290 - 295
      Abstract: AbstractBackgroundEarly weight loss (EWL) in the first 1–2 months of behavioral treatment is a strong predictor of later total weight loss. It is not clear whether participants with lower early losses lose less in ongoing treatment or simply fail to overcome the smaller initial loss. Furthermore, no study has tested whether EWL in behavioral treatment predicts response to a different treatment modality, such as pharmacotherapy.MethodsData were from 170 participants with obesity (baseline BMI = 40.8 ± 5.8 kg/m2, 87.6% female; 71.3% Black) enrolled in a two-phase trial. Data from the weight loss phase, which provided weekly lifestyle counseling and a meal replacement diet, were used to examine the relationship between 4-week EWL and subsequent rate of weight loss in behavioral treatment. Data from the maintenance phase, in which 137 participants who had lost ≥5% of initial weight were randomized to 52 weeks of maintenance counseling with lorcaserin or placebo, were used to determine whether EWL with behavioral treatment affects the benefit of pharmacotherapy.ResultsEWL in the first 4 weeks of behavioral treatment (3.6 ± 1.7%) predicted greater total losses at Week 14 (r2 = 0.61, p < .001) and a faster rate of weight loss in the subsequent 9 weeks of the program (p < .001). During the maintenance phase, lower EWL in behavioral treatment predicted a greater benefit of lorcaserin, in comparison with placebo, for the maintenance of a ≥5% loss at Weeks 24 and 52.ConclusionsThese findings support recommendations to modify treatment for individuals with low EWL.
