  • Assessing Loneliness in UAE Populations: the Relationship with Age,
           Gender, Marital Status, and Academic Performance
    • Abstract: Abstract This study evaluates the extent of loneliness among tertiary students and the wider population in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and examines its association with age, gender, marital status and academic performance. The study used the Arabic version of the UCLA Loneliness Scale. A total of 1429 students from all colleges of the UAEU and 1431 participants from the UAE responded to the scale and to questions on gender, age, marital status and educational level. It was found that college students tended to score below average on the loneliness scale and that males tended to score slightly lower than females. As for the wider UAE community, the participants’ mean loneliness score was also below the scale average and there were no statistically significant differences between males and females or between married and single persons. With respect to age, it was found that only among unmarried participants was age significantly correlated with loneliness. Interestingly enough, the relationship between academic performance as measured by GPA and loneliness levels was not statistically significant for either gender. These results were discussed within the UAE cultural context and the related literature.

  • Subjective Well-Being of Bullied Children in Indonesia
    • Abstract: Abstract This study aimed to explore sibling bullying and school bullying across three age groups (8, 10, and 12 years old) in Indonesia (N = 21,002; 49.44% boys, 50.56% girls) and how these bullying actions (physical, psychological, verbal) affect children’s subjective well-being. The study used data from the third wave of Children’s Worlds Survey, which was conducted in West Java Province. Bullying actions were measured by reported frequency of experiencing being bullied by siblings and other children during the last month. Subjective well-being (SWB) was measured using the Children’s Worlds Subjective Well-Being Scale (CW-SWBS). Data were analysed using structural equation modelling. Being hit by siblings displayed significant effects on the CW-SWBS for Grades 6 and 2, while being called unkind names by siblings showed significant effects in the three grades. Being hit by other children at school did not display a significant effect on the CW-SWBS for Grades 2 and 4, and only a low level of significance for Grade 6. Being left out by children in class showed significant effects for all grades. Being called unkind names by children at school displayed significant effects for Grades 2 and 4 and was non-significant for Grade 6. Many Indonesian children who are victims of bullying seem to have adapted to physical bullying to maintain their level of SWB through buffers (behaviour and good relationships). The incidence of bullying in Indonesian children is very worrying and it must be taken into account by parents and teachers that these children may be at risk, although they remain passive to the situation in apparently a conformist way, by reporting rather high SWB scores.

  • From Unemployment to Employment and Back: Professional Trajectories and
    • Abstract: Abstract So far, only few studies have considered different aspects of well-being in studying losing or gaining employment. We examined life satisfaction, mental health, and the orientations to pleasure, engagement, and meaning over two years in a large sample of the Swiss labor force (N = 1231). We analyzed four different trajectories: Individuals always being employed, never being employed, those who lost employment, and those who gained employment. Results showed that losing and gaining employment went along with expected changes in life satisfaction and mental health. Additionally, gaining employment went along with increases in the orientations to pleasure, engagement, and meaning while a decrease in the orientation to pleasure was observed in the constantly unemployed. Further, life satisfaction was predictive for gaining employment, mental health problems were predictive for losing employment, and the orientations to pleasure, engagement, and meaning were unrelated to the future employment status. We conclude, in line with earlier studies, that well-being might be an important resource for coping with vulnerabilities and could be used for identifying risk groups with regard to employment status.

  • Particip-active Musical Performance: Quality of Life at a Seniors’
           Village in South Africa
    • Abstract: Abstract With increasing life expectancy around the globe, both developed and developing countries face greater ageing populations. South Africa is no different as ageing impacts on quality of life. This paper situates itself within a wider study Spirituality and Well-being: Music in the community. It focuses on a mixed voice choir based in the Somerset West area (near Cape Town). The senior citizens in this choir are all ex-professional people bar one, almost all residing in this affluent retirement home. Using case study methodology and drawing on questionnaire data, we employ Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis as an analytical tool to code the data and report on these overarching themes: Sense of Community and Social Relationships, The Desire to Learn and Try New Things, and Creating New Spiritual Selves. Our findings show that through ‘particip-action’ and performance, in both formal and informal settings, participants have the opportunity to actively learn, experience and question their sense of spirituality, and engage in a leisure activity like singing which significantly contributes to their life quality. This case study adds to the wider body of research that promotes active participation for all seniors. In a country like South Africa, where there is much disparity between the haves and have nots, we argue that singing is an effective medium that may contribute to the lives of all seniors despite their financial background. As this is a small-scale study, a limitation in itself, generalization to other countries or communities cannot be made.

  • Personality, Luck Beliefs, and (Non-') Problem Lottery Gambling
    • Abstract: Abstract This study offers both the first systematic investigation of the relationship between the five-factor personality model and general (ostensibly non-problem) lottery gambling, and the first application of Thompson and Prendergast’s (2013) bidimensional model of luck beliefs to gambling behavior. Cross-sectional analyses (N = 844) indicate the bidimensional model of luck beliefs significantly accounts for variance in lottery gambling that is discrete from and greater than that of the five-factor personality model. Moreover, the broad pattern of relationships we find between presumably harmless state-sponsored lottery gambling and both personality and luck beliefs tend to parallel those found in studies of problem gambling, suggesting implications for quality of life and public policy in relation to lottery gambling.

  • Does Happiness Pays' A Longitudinal Family Life Survey
    • Abstract: Abstract Most of the research on happiness has documented that income, marriage, employment and health affect happiness. Very few studies examine whether happiness itself affect income, marriage, employment and health. This study does so, benefiting from data drawn from the panel longitudinal Indonesian Family Life Survey (IFLS) 2007 and 2014. The survey includes 23,776 individuals from 15,067 households living in about 262 neighborhoods between 2007 and 2014. The findings show that happier Indonesians in 2007 earned more money, were more likely to be married, were less likely to be divorced or unemployed, and were in better health when the survey was conducted again seven years later. Policy makers may consider that increasing citizen happiness is vital to achieve citizen success on labor markets, to improve their job performance and to maintain their health.

  • Understanding Well-Being in the Ghanaian Context: Linkages between Lay
           Conceptions of Well-Being and Measures of Hedonic and Eudaimonic
    • Abstract: Abstract The aim of this study was to explore the measurement and conceptualisation of well-being within the Ghanaian socio-cultural setting. In addition to testing the structural validity of two commonly used well-being scales, the Satisfaction with Life Scale (SWLS) and the Meaning in Life Questionnaire (MLQ) among Ghanaian adults, we explored Ghanaian people’s lay conceptualisations of well-being. We also established to what extent the integration of quantitative and qualitative findings will support the distinction of hedonic and eudaimonic dimensions in the Ghanaian context. A concurrent mixed-method design was implemented involving 420 employed individuals living in urban areas (mean age = 41.32; SD = 9.59; 230 men and 178 women). Data was analysed using structural equation modelling, thematic analysis, and descriptive statistics. Our findings demonstrated that the SWLS and MLQ had good psychometric properties. The lay understanding of well-being referred to emotional stability, sustenance and relational well-being and thus comprised of psychological, material, subjective and relational dimensions. Lay conceptualisations of well-being in the Ghanaian context reflect the understanding of well-being as multidimensional and as a relatively holistic phenomenon with overlapping categories where the simultaneous fulfilments of needs of the individual and others are intertwined with hedonic and eudaimonic notions. The interface of quantitative and qualitative data also portrays that hedonic and eudaimonic dimensions of well-being could not be clearly distinguished in the Ghanaian context. Our findings indicate that there is a continuous need to test and refine prevailing theoretically assumptions of well-being against prevailing contextual needs.

  • Feeling Exhausted' Let’s Play – How Play in Work Relates to
           Experienced Burnout and Innovation Behaviors
    • Abstract: Abstract Play in work, as one specific type of work designs, is regarded as the possible solution to experienced burnout and could bring the desirable outcomes to organizations. Drawing on Affective Events Theory (AET), we argued that workplace events (such as play) cause emotional reactions on the part of employees (i.e., burnout), which in turn influence workplace attitudes and behaviors (i.e., innovation behaviors). A total of 439 employees completed surveys, and the results showed that play in work positively relates to innovation behaviors. We also examined individual’s attitude toward workplace fun to further understand the impact of individual differences on the relationship between play in work and their feelings and subsequent behaviors. We found that the positive attitude toward fun moderated the indirect relationship between play in work and innovation behaviors via experienced burnout. Based on AET, our results showed that play in work could reduce employees’ experienced burnout which in turn lead to their innovation behaviors. Such an effect of play in work are stronger when an individual has more positive attitude toward fun at work. Practically, it is suggested that play in work would contribute to favorable outcomes in the workplace, but managers should pay attention to individual differences in attitude toward workplace fun to ensure the maximum benefit of play.

  • Factors Influencing the Maternal Life Balance of Flemish Mothers, a
           Cross-Sectional Study
    • Abstract: Abstract This cross-sectional study examined the levels of maternal life balance and its influencing factors. The sample was composed of 731 Flemish mothers who self-reported on perceived maternal life balance; maternal-infant bonding; emotional wellbeing and coping responses to motherhood. Sociodemographic details were obtained. Mothers overall perceived life balance. Multiple linear regression analysis revealed a model with predictors of perceived maternal life balance: Sense of coherence (B.157; p.000), level of education (B.035; p.000), seeking social support (B.064; p.008) and shared parenting (B.080; p.030) had a significant positive relationship with maternal life balance. Low emotional wellbeing (B-.273; p.000), income level (B-.144; p < .000), maternal age (B−.009; p.011) had a significant negative relationship with maternal life balance. To establish and maintain maternal life balance, Flemish mothers, mothers ≥31 years of age in particular, would benefit from support during their children’s pre-primary school age-period, irrespective of maternal socio-economic characteristics. Professional and peer support should include the dialogue about transition to motherhood, adaptation of the maternal identity and about maternal role attainment. The woman’s emotional wellbeing, her concerns about motherhood, her coping resources and what motherhood means to the individual woman should be considered. Education of professionals and future research, with specific attention to co-parents, older mothers and mothers with a non-Flemish background, are recommended.

  • Important Goals, Meanings, and Relationships in Flourishing and
           Languishing States: Towards Patterns of Well-being
    • Abstract: Abstract Qualitative studies of lay people’s perspectives on facets of well-being are scarce, and it is not known how the perspectives of people with high and low levels of well-being dovetail or differ. This research explored the experiences of people with high/flourishing versus low/languishing levels of positive mental health in three cross-sectional survey design studies. Languishing and flourishing participants were selected in each study based on quantitative data from the Mental Health Continuum - Short Form as reported by Keyes et al. (Journal of Health and Social Behavior 43:207–222, 2002). Qualitative content analyses were conducted on written responses to semistructured open-ended questions on the what and why of important meaningful things (study 1, n = 42), goals (study 2, n = 30), and relationships (study 3, n = 50). Results indicated that well-being is not only a matter of degree—manifestations differ qualitatively in flourishing and languishing states. Similar categories emerged for what flourishing and languishing people found important with regard to meaning, goals, and relationships, but the reasons for the importance thereof differed prominently. Languishing people manifested a self-focus and often motivated responses in terms of own needs and hedonic values such as own happiness, whereas flourishers were more other-focused and motivated responses in terms of eudaimonic values focusing on a greater good. We propose that positive mental health can be conceptualized in terms of dynamic quantitative and qualitative patterns of well-being. Interventions to promote well-being may need to take into account the patterns of well-being reflecting what people on various levels of well-being experience and value.

  • Job Autonomy and Schedule Flexibility as Moderators of the Relationship
           Between Work-Family Conflict and Work-Related Outcomes
    • Abstract: Abstract Using data on employees from the 2008 National Study of the Changing Workforce (NSCW), this study tests the effects of work-to-family conflict and family-to-work conflict (WTFC and FTWC, respectively) on job satisfaction and work engagement. Moreover, using the job demands-resources (JDR) model, this study evaluates whether job autonomy and schedule flexibility moderate these effects. The results support the matching hypothesis perspective, where WTFC (but not FTWC) is associated with lower job satisfaction and lower work engagement. Moreover, job autonomy and schedule flexibility are both found to moderate the effects of WTFC (but not FTWC) on job satisfaction and work engagement. These results highlight the importance of job autonomy and schedule flexibility in moderating the negative effects of WTFC (but not FTWC), and suggest that job autonomy and schedule flexibility both act as a buffer but only in matching-domain relations.

  • Balancing Work, School, and Personal Life among Graduate Students: a
           Positive Psychology Approach
    • Abstract: Abstract Graduate students are faced with an array of responsibilities in their personal and professional lives, yet little research has explored how working students maintain a sense of well-being while managing work, school, and personal-life. Drawing on conservation of resources theory and work-family enrichment theory, we explored personal, psychological resources that increase enrichment and decrease conflict, and in turn decrease perceptions of stress. In a study of 231 employed graduate students, we found that mindfulness was negatively related to stress via perceptions of conflict and enrichment, whereas self-compassion, resilience, and recovery experience were negatively related to stress, but only through conflict, not enrichment. These findings suggest that graduate students who are able to be “in the moment” may experience higher levels of well-being, in part due to greater enrichment and lower conflict.

  • When and how Workplace Social Support Improves Family Performance
    • Abstract: Abstract This research investigates the simple and conditional indirect effects of emotional and instrumental family related social support from coworkers on relationship and task family performance. Work to family enrichment is incorporated as mediator and family role salience as the conditional moderator. Primary data were collected through the Likert type of survey questionnaire from the employees working in banking sector of Pakistan (N = 401). It was found that emotional and instrumental family related social support from coworkers have significant effect on relationship and task family performance. Further, the effect of emotional support were more on relationship and the effect of instrumental were more on task family performance. Work to family enrichment was found as mediator in the relationship between social support types and family performance types. Family role salience was found as the conditional moderator in the indirect relationship between both types of social support and both types of family performance. This study will help managerial practitioners and researchers to understand the direct and conditional indirect effects of two specific types of social support (i.e., emotional and instrumental) on two specific types of family performance (i.e., relationship and task).

  • Quality of Life Outcomes in Internet-Delivered ( Space from Depression )
           Treatment for Depression
    • Abstract: Abstract Quality of Life (QoL) outcomes in interventions for depression are an area in the literature that has received little focus, particularly in trials relating to internet-delivered psychological interventions. Evaluating QoL outcomes are necessary to more completely understand if an intervention is successful in the treatment of depression, given that a decrease in negative symptoms in depression does not equate to synonymous increase in QoL. This secondary analysis study is aimed to examine the effects of an internet-delivered intervention for a mild to moderate depressed sample on QoL. 188 participants were randomly allocated to the Space from Depression intervention (n = 96) or a waiting-list group (n = 92). The intervention is an eight-module online cognitive-behavioural therapy intervention for depression. The trial had a duration of 8 weeks and the results were explored up to 3 months later. QoL was measured using the EuroQol-5D (EQ-5D) at different time points. The intervention produced positive effects in the global scores of QoL at post-treatment an these results were maintained at follow-up, although no differences between conditions were found. Analyses of the QoL dimensions showed a significant improvement on the Anxiety/depression dimension compared to controls, but no effects were found in other dimensions. The results suggest that internet-delivered interventions has the potential to produce changes in QoL. These results can potentially be understood by the lower impairments within a mild to moderate depressed sample. Further inferences about the sensitivity of the EQ-5D measure within this population are discussed in light of the findings.

  • Impacts of Structural Social Capital and Cognitive Social Capital on the
           Psychological Status of Survivors of the Yaan Earthquake
    • Abstract: Abstract The Yaan earthquake occurred in April 2013, which measured 7.0 on the Richter scale, caused 196 people died, 11,470 injured and USD 6.9 billion economic loss. The Yaan area were also severely affected by the Wenchuan earthquake in 2008. This research examined the impacts of structural social capital (social association) and cognitive social capital on the psychological status (depression, life satisfaction) of survivors of the Yaan earthquake. Based on a survey of 495 respondents, structural equation models were constructed to test the mediation effects of cognitive social capital on the relationships between structural social capital, depression, and life satisfaction of respondents with disaster impact as a control variable. This study also examined the paths of impact of the three components of cognitive social capital (sense of community, trust, and social connectedness) on survivors’ psychological status. The findings indicated the following. 1) The disaster impact had negative effect on cognitive social capital (β = −.15, p < 0.05), but no effect on structural capital (β = −.06, n.s.); disaster impact also had positive effect on depression (β = .16, p < 0.01) and negative effect on life satisfaction (β = −.13, p < 0.05). 2) Structural social capital had positive effect on cognitive social capital (β = −.35, p < 0.001) and cognitive social capital had negative effect on depression (β = −.44, p < 0.001). Structural social capital had indirect effect but no direct effect on depression. The impact of structural social capital on depression was fully mediated by cognitive social capital. 3) Cognitive social capital had positive effect on life satisfaction (β = .44, p < 0.001). Structural social capital had indirect effect but no direct effect on life satisfaction. The impact of structural social capital on life satisfaction was fully mediated by cognitive social capital. 4) Sense of community has a positive effect on life satisfaction (β = .72, p < 0.05), but no effect on depression. 5) Trust has a negative effect on depression (β = −.41, p < 0.05), but no effect on life satisfaction. 6) Social connectedness has a negative effect on depression (β = −.16, p < 0.05), but no effect on life satisfaction. The research highlighted the importance of building and maintaining cognitive social capital in a community affected by disaster. It also makes recommendations for social workers to improve trust and social connectedness in the pre-disaster and disaster relief phases to buffer depression. After a disaster, it is recommended to facilitate a sense of community to improve the life satisfaction of survivors.

  • “We Help each Other”: Relational Patterns among Older Individuals in
           South African Samples
    • Abstract: Abstract The present study aimed to describe the reasons for the importance of relationships for older individuals living in urban and rural sites in South Africa. Participants were selected from urban (n = 50, males = 14, females = 36; mean age = 70, SD = 8.35) and rural (n = 50; males = 16 females = 34; mean age = 67, SD = 5.31) areas in the North West Province of South Africa. Thematic analysis was implemented to explore participants’ important relationships and the reasons thereof. Both samples experienced provision and expectation of sustained support, personal identity and security via spiritual relatedness. Whereas the expression of affection for the nuclear family was unique to the urban sample, the rural sample expressed the need for dependable, trusting relationships. Interventions to improve relational well-being must consider a plurality of dimensions such as the self, others, the supernatural, and the unique social context.
