  • Marital Status Transitions and Self-Reported Health among Canadians: A
           Life Course Perspective
    • Authors: Sara Zella
      Pages: 303 - 325
      Abstract: Abstract This study focuses on the relationship between marital status transitions (the formation and dissolution of unions) and the self-reported health of adults in Canada. Empirical research has found that those in intimate unions generally enjoy better mental and physical health than the unattached and the dissolution of a union causes distress both for men and for women. Much remains to be understood about the effects of marital status transitions on health, especially from a life course perspective. This study poses the following research questions: do the number of marital status transitions and the kind of marital status transitions (from single to cohabitant; from single to married; from cohabitant to married and from married to divorce) affect health over time? Does difference between genders exist in this relationship? Data come from the nine cycles of the Canadian National Population Health Survey (1994–2011) and random-intercept logistic regression models are estimated to address these questions. Results do suggest that marital status transitions play a crucial role in determining health over time. Controlling for socio-demographic characteristics, marriage and cohabitation are associated with better physical and mental health, and depression symptoms are clearly stronger in cases of the dissolution of unions. Differences between genders are also evident.

  • Development and Validation of the Social Emotional Health
           Survey–Higher Education Version
    • Authors: Michael J. Furlong; Sukkyung You; Mark Shishim; Erin Dowdy
      Pages: 343 - 367
      Abstract: Abstract We report on the development of the Social Emotional Health Survey-Higher Education (SEHS-HE), a multidimensional measure of covitality (the combinatorial effects of multiple positive psychological constructs). Scale development was carried out over 18 months involving five phases: conceptual grounding and item pool generation; cognitive interviews and item refinement; pilot survey and item reduction; structural validation survey and analyses; and, validity and stability analyses. Starting with a pool of 72 items, item selection and reduction was carried out using a sample of 771 college students. A second sample of 1,413 students (63.5 % female, mean age 20.0 years) completed the refined 48-item measure. Confirmatory factor analyses found acceptable fit for the SEHS-HE higher-order covitality latent structure. A final set of 36 items consisted of four latent traits (each comprised of three measured subscales): belief-in-self (subscales: self-efficacy, persistence, self-awareness), belief-in-others (subscales: family support, institutional support, peer support), emotional competence (subscales: cognitive reappraisal, empathy, self-regulation), and engaged living (subscales: gratitude, zest, optimism). Complete invariance was found for males and females with small effect size differences on latent mean scores. Evidence supported the SEHS-HE total score’s concurrent and predictive validity for students’ subjective well-being (r = .72, r = .65, respectively) and psychological distress (r = −.56, r = −.45, respectively). The 4-month stability coefficient for the SEHS-HE total score was .82, indicating it measures trait-like psychological constructs. The discussion focuses on the uses of the SEHS-HE in support of mental health programs, and refinement of the conceptual understanding of the covitality construct.

  • The Impact of Personal and Environmental Characteristics on Quality of
           Life of People with Intellectual Disability
    • Authors: Cristina Simões; Sofia Santos
      Pages: 389 - 408
      Abstract: Abstract The main purpose of this research was to examine the factors that can affect or predict the quality of life (QOL) of people with intellectual disability (ID). Two groups of factors were analyzed: (a) personal characteristics (gender, diagnosis, and age) and (b) environmental characteristics (living circumstances, daytime activity, and geographical location). Data were collected from 1264 individuals with mild or moderate ID levels and their proxies. QOL was assessed by the Escala Pessoal de Resultados (EPR), the Portuguese version of the Personal Outcomes Scale. The results showed that both sets of characteristics influenced the QOL scores of adults with ID. Furthermore, findings revealed that (a) the factors that strongly affected the QOL scores were diagnosis, age, living circumstances, and daytime activity; (b) the factors that strongly predicted the QOL scores were diagnosis, living circumstances, and daytime activity; and (c) the factors self-reported and reported by the proxies were similar. Implications for practitioners, service systems, and public policies that are directed towards addressing the supports of people with ID are discussed.

  • Understanding Dispositional Hope in General and Clinical Populations
    • Authors: Macarena Espinoza; Guadalupe Molinari; Ernestina Etchemendy; Rocío Herrero; Cristina Botella; Rosa María Baños Rivera
      Pages: 439 - 450
      Abstract: Abstract Hope is a positive, future-thinking construct that is highly related to pursuing and achieving our personal goals. Considering its relevance for well-being and psychological adjustment, the purpose of this study is to explore the psychometric properties of the Spanish version of the Dispositional Hope Scale (DHS) (Snyder et al. in Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, 60(4), 570–585, 1991), its relation with important psychological health indicators (depression, hopelessness, optimism, general self-efficacy and quality of life), and examine the possible differences between clinical (CP) and general populations (GP). Sample was composed of 290 volunteers. Measures of hopelessness, depression, optimism, quality of life, self-efficacy, and positive-negative affect were administered. Hope was assessed again 1 month later to collect test-retest data. CFA supports the unidimensional structure. In addition, good internal consistency and test-retest values were found. Further, based on the one-factor model, results revealed that the Spanish DHS has strong factorial invariance across populations (GP and CP). The differences in the hope levels detected between CP and GP appear to be mainly associated with positive affect and depressive symptoms. Results broaden the existing data about the Spanish DHS and support its usefulness not only for research, but also for clinical purposes.

  • Life Satisfaction of Career Women and Housewives
    • Authors: Adam Okulicz-Kozaryn; Rubia da Rocha Valente
      Abstract: Abstract Profound changes in gender roles have taken place over the past several decades in the United States. Women’s roles have changed most: women are marrying later in life and at lower rates, having fewer children, and working more outside of the household. “Career women” are the new normal and housewifery has gone out of fashion. At the same time, women have become less happy. We use the US General Social Surveys from 1972 to 2014 to explore these latest trends. We find that, until recently, women were happier to be housewives or to work part-time than full-time, especially, women who are older, married, with children, in middle or upper class, and living in suburbs or smaller places. The effect size of housewifery on subjective wellbeing (SWB) is mild to moderate, at about a fourth to a third of the effect of being unemployed. Therefore, we argue that one possible reason for the decline in average happiness for women was increased labor force participation. Yet, the happiness advantage of housewifery is declining among younger cohorts and career women may become happier than housewives in the future.

  • A Latent Profile Analysis of Internet use and Its Association with
           Psychological Well-Being Outcomes among Hong Kong Chinese Early
    • Authors: Cecilia M. S. Ma
      Abstract: Abstract Nowadays, the Internet has penetrated into every aspect of our daily life. The aims of this study were (a) to examine the patterns of Internet use among Hong Kong early adolescents and (b) to explore whether such patterns differed in terms of the psychological well-being (happiness, loneliness, depression and hopelessness), sensation seeking and perceived social support. A total of 1401 Chinese adolescents participated in the study. Results from the latent profile analysis suggested that there were four latent profiles, and different patterns of the Internet use were associated with the psychological well-being, perceived social support and sensation seeking. The present study sheds light on the importance of considering the nature of online activity and the relationship between Internet use and psychosocial well-being. Implications of the study are discussed.

  • Cognitive-Behavioural Group Therapy for Pure Victims with Internalizing
           Problems: An Evidence-based One-year Longitudinal Study
    • Authors: Annis Lai-chu Fung
      Abstract: Abstract The present study evaluates a specific cognitive-behavioural group intervention for pure victims of school bullying, employing a longitudinal design with mixed methods. 68 high-risk pure victims were identified from 5071 schoolchildren through screening measures and structured interviews, and assigned to 10 treatment groups. They completed a self-report questionnaire comprising measures of anxious/depressed problems and peer victimization prior and after the treatment, and at 1-year follow-up. The students, their teachers, and parents/guardians also received structural interview assessing students’ cognition, affection, and behaviour pertaining to peer victimization before and after the intervention. The results showed that the students’ physical, verbal, and total victimization, social exclusion, and depressed-anxious scores decreased from the pre-test to the one-year follow-up. They also reported a more realistic self-image, less self-blame, more positive outcome evaluation, less fearful, and employ more rational strategy when encountering problems in post-test interviews. Teachers and parents also noted the student experienced less peer victimization, had learnt to speak up against victimization and was less isolated in class. The results suggested the CBT program was effective for treating pure victims with internalizing problem.

  • How are Mothers Faring across the Globe' Constructing a new Mothers’
           Well-Being Index and Assessing Its Validity
    • Authors: Ming-Chang Tsai; Tsui-o Tai
      Abstract: Abstract This paper proposes a new index of mothers’ well-being for cross-country comparison. Conceptually, maternal health and the social protection and autonomy of mothers are two distinct dimensions at issue. In operationalization, maternal health is indicated by 1) prevalence of modern contraception, 2) low adolescent fertility; and 3) low maternal mortality. Social protection and autonomy of the mothers comprises (1) skilled attendants at delivery; (2) age at first marriage; and (3) maternal protection policy. The results from structural equation modeling show that a one-factor model is as good as a two-factor model for constructing the Mothers’ Well-being Index (MWI). The MWI’s internal validity and predictive validity are both satisfactory. We calculated the scores for each country and present the ranking of 150 countries for 2010. The mothers in Nordic and Western European countries fared best, and mothers from African countries fared worst. Countries located in the middle of the ranking list should be given more attention because their relative ranking can be contingent on the choice of measures in index construction.

  • Boarding School Attendance and Physical Health Status of Northern Plains
    • Authors: Ursula Running Bear; And the AI-SUPERPFP Team; Janette Beals; Carol E. Kaufman; Spero M. Manson
      Abstract: Abstract Our hypothesis was that boarding school attendance among Northern Plains tribal members was associated with lower self-reported physical health status controlling for demographic, socioeconomic variables, the number of mental health and physical health problems. This secondary analysis used the American Indian Service Utilization, Psychiatric Epidemiology, Risk and Protective Factors Project data collected from 1997 to 1999. This analysis included (n = 1638) Northern Plains tribally enrolled members, aged 15–54, who lived on or within 20 miles of their reservations. Using linear regression and path analysis we examined the indirect, direct, and combine associations of boarding school attendance and physical health status. Results confirm boarding school attendance contributed indirectly (beta = −.83, CI = −1.33,-.33, p. ≤ .001) through number of physical health conditions to lower physical health status. Combined direct and indirect results (beta = −.39, CI = −1.20, .42) show American Indians who attended boarding school have lower physical health status (beta = −1.22, CI = −2.18,-.26, p. ≤ .01) than those who did not. The relationship of American Indian boarding school attendance and physical health status is complex with more than one path existing. We need to better understand the relationship of boarding school attendance and American Indian health, identify risk factors, and develop interventions for families and younger generations.

  • Frames of Reference in Self-Reports of Health, Well-Being, Fatigue, and
           Pain: a Qualitative Examination
    • Authors: Doerte U. Junghaenel; Joan E. Broderick; Stefan Schneider; Marcella May; Alicia Bolton; Kelly P. McCarrier; Larissa M. Stassek; Sarah C. Keithly; Arthur A. Stone
      Abstract: Abstract Self-reports in survey research can be affected by internal comparison standards, or Frames of Reference (FoRs), that people apply when making their ratings. The goal of this study was to determine which FoRs people naturally use when rating their health, subjective well-being, fatigue, and pain. We further examined whether FoRs varied by content domain and age group. One hundred adults from a community sample of the US general population participated in individual semi-structured qualitative interviews. Participants provided self-report ratings on two of the four content domains and were then systematically queried about FoRs. Interview responses were summarized and coded into broad FoR categories. Four broad FoR categories emerged: References to (1) Other People, (2) an Earlier Time in Life, (3) an Important Event in the Past, and (4) a Hypothetical Situation. FoRs were reported in the majority (80.5%) of responses and multiple FoRs were reported in 34% of responses. The reporting of FoRs was evident for all domains, but was more prevalent for well-being compared to pain. References to a Hypothetical Situation were only mentioned in the well-being and health domains. For health, references to Other People were more frequently reported at older compared to younger ages. Our results extend prior work by demonstrating that participants’ reporting of FoRs is evident in ratings of various content domains. They further suggest that a limited number of FoRs are used and that their identification holds promise for understanding and controlling systematic group differences in FoRs.

  • Psychosocial Factors Influencing Individual Well-Being in Chinese
           Adolescents in Hong Kong: a Six-Year Longitudinal Study
    • Authors: Daniel T. L. Shek; Lu-Yin Liang
      Abstract: Abstract This pioneer study investigated the longitudinal development of adolescent subjective well-being (SWB) in terms of life satisfaction and hopelessness. The concurrent and longitudinal influence of different socio-demographic characteristics (i.e., age, gender, economic disadvantage, and family intactness), individual qualities (i.e., resilience, social competence, positive identity, and spirituality), and familial characteristics (i.e., family functioning, and parent-child relationship) on these two aspects of SWB were examined. A total of 3328 Hong Kong students from 28 secondary schools participated in a 6-year longitudinal study. While adolescent life satisfaction showed a declining trend, hopelessness gradually increased across the six years. Resilience, social competence, family functioning, and father-child relational qualities were significant predictors of life satisfaction at the initial status, whereas gender, mother-child relational qualities, positive identity and spirituality predicted changes in life satisfaction over time. Regarding hopelessness, gender, family intactness, resilience, social competence, father-child relational qualities, and mother-child relational qualities were significant correlates at the initial slope, but spirituality and family functioning were the longitudinal predictors of hopelessness over the adolescence period. While the present study showed that some existing Western findings can be replicated in the Chinese context, there are some novel and puzzling observations deserving further scrutiny.

  • Freedom and Happiness in Nations: A Research Synthesis
    • Authors: Amanina Abdur Rahman; Ruut Veenhoven
      Abstract: Abstract Freedom is highly valued, but there are limits to the amount of freedom a society can allow its members. This begs the question of how much freedom is too much. The answers to that question differ across political cultures and are typically based on ideological argumentation. In this paper, we consider the compatibility of freedom and happiness in nations by taking stock of the research findings on that matter, gathered in the World Database of Happiness. We find that freedom and happiness are positively correlated in contemporary nations. The pattern of correlation differs somewhat across cultures and aspects of freedom. We found no pattern of declining happiness returns, which suggests that freedom has not passed its maximum in the freest countries.

  • Examining the Cross-National Measurement Invariance of the Extended
           Satisfaction with Life Scale in the United States and Hungary
    • Authors: James B. Hittner; Rhonda Swickert; N. Clayton Silver; Krisztina Hevesi; Zsuzsanna Kövi
      Abstract: Abstract The measurement invariance properties of four domains from the Extended Satisfaction with Life Scale (ESWLS) were examined in samples of young adults from the United States and Hungary. The four domains (scales) were general life satisfaction, social life satisfaction, family life satisfaction, and satisfaction with one’s self. For both countries, confirmatory factor analyses supported a correlated four-factor model, with each ESWLS domain constituting a single independent factor. Multigroup invariance testing provided support for both configural invariance and metric invariance, suggesting that across the U.S. and Hungarian samples the four ESWLS scales evidenced the same pattern of factor loadings as well as largely equivalent regression weights. These results suggest that respondents in both countries attributed the same meaning to the ESWLS constructs and that associations between the four ESWLS scales and other variables can be meaningfully compared across the two nations. Latent factor analyses indicated that with the exception of the correlation between general- and self-satisfaction, which was higher for the U.S., the magnitudes of the correlations between ESWLS domains were similar for the U.S. and Hungary. Possible explanations for the lack of measurement invariance across all of the nested models (i.e., item intercepts through residuals) are discussed.

  • Decent Work and Work Motivation in Knowledge Workers: the Mediating Role
           of Psychological Capital
    • Authors: Tânia Ferraro; Leonor Pais; João Manuel Moreira; Nuno Rebelo Dos Santos
      Abstract: Abstract This article aimed to investigate the role of Decent Work as a predictor of different types of Work Motivation and to explore the possible role of Psychological Capital in mediating this relationship. The Decent Work Questionnaire, the Multidimensional Work Motivation Scale, and the Psychological Capital Questionnaire were administered to 3004 knowledge workers, in Portugal and Brazil. Results from Structural Equation Modeling analyses support the hypothesized model, showing the predictor role of Decent Work and complete and partial mediation effects of PsyCap in different relationships between DW and Work motivation variables. The results also support the idea that a decent work context predicts more autonomous work motivations again with the mediation of PsyCap. In sum, the results suggest that decent work plays an important role in promoting a positive approach to work, and that Psychological Capital is an important mediating variable in the promotion of autonomous Work motivation. Limitations and practical implications conclude the article.

  • Relationships between Involvement in School Bullying and Quality of Life
           in Taiwanese Adolescents
    • Authors: Pai-Cheng Lin; Chia-Nan Yen; Huang-Chi Lin; Peng-Wei Wang; Tai-Ling Liu; Huei-Fan Hu; Cheng-Fang Yen
      Abstract: Abstract This study aimed to examine the associations between involvement in bullying and perceived quality of life (QOL) among adolescents in Taiwan. A total of 5488 students whose grade ranged from 7 to 12 participated in this study. Their experiences of victimization by and perpetration of verbal, relational, and physical bullying (including the snatching of belongings) were assessed through using the Chinese version of the School Bullying Experience Questionnaire. The level of perceived QOL was assessed using the Taiwanese Quality of Life Questionnaire for Adolescents (TQOLA). The associations between involvement in bullying and QOL were examined using multiple regression analysis. After controlling for the effects of sex, age, and depression, victimization by verbal and relationship bullying was negatively associated with QOL on all subscales of the TQOLA except for the Family subscale. Victimization by physical bullying and the snatching of belongings was negatively associated with QOL on the Social Relationships and Pain subscales. Perpetration of verbal and relationship bullying was negatively associated with QOL on the Family, Psychological Wellbeing, and Pain subscales, but positively associated with QOL on the Social Relationships subscale. Perpetration of physical bullying and snatching of belongings was negatively associated with QOL on the Residential Environment and Personal Competence subscales, but positively associated with QOL on the Psychological Wellbeing and Pain subscales. The directions of associations between bullying involvement and QOL in adolescents vary according to the types of bullying involvement and the dimensions of QOL. The results may serve as the basis on which mental health and educational professionals can develop comprehensive need-assessment and resource-allocation strategies for adolescents who have been involved in bullying.

           Quality-of-Life: Applications to Assessment of Affect in Older,
           Chronically and Cognitively Impaired, Ethnically Diverse Groups Using the
           Feeling Tone Questionnaire
    • Authors: Jeanne A. Teresi; Katja Ocepek-Welikson; John A. Toner; Marjorie Kleinman; Mildred Ramirez; Joseph P. Eimicke; Barry J. Gurland; Albert Siu
      Abstract: Abstract Quality of life assessment includes measurement of positive affect. Methods artifacts associated with positively and negatively worded items can manifest as negative items loading on a second factor, despite the conceptual view that the items are measuring one underlying latent construct. Negatively worded items may elicit biased responses. Additionally, item-level response bias across ethnically diverse groups may compromise group comparisons. The aim was to illustrate methodological approaches to examining method factors and measurement equivalence in an affect measure with 9 positively and 7 negatively worded items: The Feeling Tone Questionnaire (FTQ). The sample included 4960 non-Hispanic White, 1144 non-Hispanic Black, and 517 Hispanic community and institutional residents receiving long-term supportive services. The mean age was 82 (s.d. = 11.0); 73% were female. Two thirds were cognitively impaired. Methods effects were assessed using confirmatory factor analyses (CFA), and reliability with McDonald’s omega and item response theory (IRT) generated estimates. Measurement equivalence was examined using IRT-based Wald tests. Methods effects associated with negatively worded items were observed; these provided little IRT information, and as a composite evidenced lower reliability. Both 13 and 9 item positive affect scales performed well in terms of model fit, reliability, IRT information, and evidenced little differential item functioning of high magnitude or impact. Both CFA and IRT approaches provided complementary methodological information about scale performance. The 9-item affect scale based on the FTQ can be recommended as a brief quality-of-life measure among frail and cognitively impaired individuals in palliative and long-term care settings.

  • Associations of Health-Related Quality of Life with Overall Quality of
           Life in the Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System
           (PROMIS®) Project
    • Authors: Alina Palimaru; Ron D. Hays
      Abstract: Abstract Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQOL) and evaluative well-being (EWB) surveys are used at local and national level to monitor population health. Significant associations have been reported between HRQOL and EWB measures. Perceptions of overall quality of life are one type of EWB measure. This study estimates associations between a quality of life item and HRQOL items in two datasets (n = 21,133 and n = 2996) collected as part of the U.S. Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS®) project. HRQOL measures accounted for 69% to 75% of variance in overall quality of life. The study provides further evidence about the empirical overlap between EWB and HRQOL. EWB researchers need to explicitly incorporate HRQOL measures and vice versa in their research. Future research is needed to determine the extent to which the associations between EWB and HRQOL vary by individual characteristics.
