  • Perceiving Cardiac Rehabilitation Staff as Mainly Responsible for
           Exercise: A Dilemma for Future Self-Management
    • Authors: Parminder K. Flora; Casey J. McMahon, Sean R. Locke, Lawrence R. Brawley
      Abstract: BackgroundCardiac rehabilitation (CR) exercise therapy facilitates patient recovery and better health following a cardiovascular event. However, post-CR adherence to self-managed (SM)-exercise is suboptimal. Part of this problem may be participants’ view of CR staff as mainly responsible for help and program structure. Does post-CR exercise adherence for those perceiving high CR staff responsibility suffer as a consequence'MethodsParticipants in this prospective, observational study were followed over 12 weeks of CR and one month afterward. High perceived staff responsibility individuals were examined for a decline in the strength of adherence-related social cognitions and exercise. Those high and low in perceived staff responsibility were also compared.ResultsHigh perceived staff responsibility individuals reported significant declines in anticipated exercise persistence (d = .58) and number of different SM-exercise options (d = .44). High versus low responsibility comparisons revealed a significant difference in one-month post-CR SM-exercise volume (d = .67). High perceived staff responsibility individuals exercised half of the amount of low responsibility counterparts at one month post-CR. Perceived staff responsibility and CR SRE significantly predicted SM-exercise volume, R2adj = .10, and persistence, R2adj = .18, one month post-CR.ConclusionViewing helpful well-trained CR staff as mainly responsible for participant behavior may be problematic for post-CR exercise maintenance among those more staff dependent.

  • Standing Up for Student Health: An Application of the Health Action
           Process Approach for Reducing Student Sedentary Behavior—Randomised
           Control Pilot Trial
    • Authors: Wuyou Sui; Harry Prapavessis
      Abstract: BackgroundSedentary behavior (SB) has been associated with chronic diseases. University students are a high-risk population for excessive SB. The purpose of this pilot study was to determine if a Health Action Process Approach (HAPA) based intervention, specifically action and coping planning, would increase student break frequency and decrease duration.MethodsFifty-two university students (14 men, mean age 23.5) were randomised into an 8-week HAPA-treatment (sedentary behavior) or HAPA-control (nutrition) group. Participants completed an SB questionnaire that assessed break frequency and duration of student SB (Baseline, Weeks 1–6 Treatment, and Weeks 7–8 Follow-up), and received behavioral counselling on either dietary information or SB (Baseline and Week 3).ResultsAn intent-to-treat analysis revealed a significant group by time interaction effect for student break frequency (p = .05, ηρ2 = 0.27), and a non-significant effect for student break duration (p = .10, ηρ2 = 0.23). For occupational (student) break frequency and duration, the large accompanying effect sizes favored the treatment group.ConclusionsThe current pilot study provides preliminary evidence for the potential of a HAPA-based intervention for increasing student break frequency in full-time university students.

  • Benefits of Well-Being Training in Healthy Older Adults
    • Authors: Alessandra Cantarella; Erika Borella, Cinzia Marigo, Rosanna De Beni
      Pages: 261 - 284
      Abstract: IntroductionSeveral studies have shown that psychological well-being (PWB) can be promoted through positive psychological interventions (PPIs). Although these interventions have shown promising results in clinical settings, only a few studies have investigated their effectiveness in older adults, and they have rarely considered an active control group. In addition, generalisation effects of the PWB training to quality of life (QoL) and to untrained cognitive abilities have never been considered.ObjectiveIn this study, we evaluated the effectiveness of a six-session PWB intervention aiming specifically to improve PWB, and sought any transfer effects on an aspect related to PWB, QoL. Transfer effects on a high-level cognitive process, working memory (WM), were also investigated.MethodsThirty-two older adults (61–82 years old) volunteered to take part in the study and were randomly assigned to either a training group or an active control group.ResultsOnly the trained group, once controlled for variability, reported larger gains in PWB and in WM performance after the training.ConclusionsThis pilot study suggests that PWB training can be effective in older adults, with a positive generalisation effect on cognition (WM). The discussion focuses on the need to develop PPIs tailored to older adults’ needs and resources.

  • Self-Regulatory Efficacy Encourages Exercise Persistence Despite Arthritis
           Flare Symptoms
    • Authors: James D. Sessford; Lawrence R. Brawley, Miranda A. Cary, Parminder K. Flora, Jocelyn E. Blouin, Laura Meade, Shaelyn M. Strachan, Nancy C. Gyurcsik
      Pages: 285 - 302
      Abstract: BackgroundThe study of exercise adherence during an arthritis flare is recommended by arthritis researchers. Studies to date have been correlational.MethodsSocial cognitions of exercising individuals with arthritis who consider exercise adherence under different levels of challenge of an arthritis flare were examined using an experimental design. Exercising individuals with differential self-regulatory efficacy for managing arthritis flare symptoms (SRE-flare) were randomly assigned to conditions where flare symptoms were perceived as either many or few. Individuals in each condition responded about the strength of their anticipated persistence to continue exercise, and their self-regulatory efficacy to use coping strategies to enable exercise.ResultsHigher SRE-flare individuals expressed significantly (a) greater persistence (Cohen's d = 1.17) and (b) more confidence to use their flare coping solutions (Cohen's d = 1.44).ConclusionMain findings were as hypothesised. When exposed to the condition with more limiting flare symptoms (i.e. greater challenge), high SRE participants were the most confident in dealing with flare symptoms and exercising. Identifying lower SRE-flare individuals less likely to persist with exercise during arthritis flares may improve tailored exercise counselling.

  • Using Smartphone-Based Support Groups to Promote Healthy Eating in Daily
           Life: A Randomised Trial
    • Authors: Jennifer Inauen; Niall Bolger, Patrick E. Shrout, Gertraud Stadler, Melanie Amrein, Pamela Rackow, Urte Scholz
      Pages: 303 - 323
      Abstract: BackgroundAlthough many people intend to eat healthily, they often fail to do so. We report the first randomised trial testing whether smartphone-based support groups can enhance healthy eating.MethodsAdults (N = 203) were randomised to the support or control condition (information), and to one of two eating goals (increasing fruit and vegetable/decreasing unhealthy snack consumption). After baseline, participants received information on their assigned eating goal, and completed a 13-day electronic diary. During Days 4–10, support participants were asked to support each other in achieving their eating goal in smartphone-based groups. The primary outcome was daily servings of fruit/vegetables or unhealthy snacks. Maintenance of intervention effects was assessed on Days 11–13, and at 1-month and 2-month follow-ups.ResultsSupport participants showed a gradual increase in healthy eating over time, and ate 1.4 fruits and vegetables more, 95% CI [0.3, 2.6], or 0.8 unhealthy snacks less, 95% CI [−1.4, −0.2] than controls on Day 10. Most effects were not maintained at follow-ups.ConclusionsSmartphone-based groups can promote fruit and vegetable consumption and decrease unhealthy snack intake. This study extends previous findings of the benefits of support groups, and sheds light on the temporal dynamics of behavior change.

  • Health Behavior Change in Older Adults: Testing the Health Action Process
           Approach at the Inter- and Intraindividual Level

      Abstract: BackgroundHealth behavior change theories usually claim to be universally and individually applicable. Most research has tested behavior change theories at the interindividual level and within young-to-middle-aged populations. However, associations at the interindividual level can differ substantially from associations at the intraindividual level. This study examines the applicability of the Health Action Process Approach (HAPA) at the inter- and the intraindividual level among older adults.MethodsTwo intensive longitudinal studies examined the HAPA model covering two different health behaviors and two different time spans: Study 1 (physical activity, N = 52 × 6 monthly observations) and Study 2 (medication adherence, N = 64 × 30 daily observations). The HAPA constructs (risk awareness, outcome expectancy, self-efficacy, intention, action planning, action control), and self-reported behaviors were assessed.ResultsOverall, at the interindividual level, results of both studies largely confirmed the associations specified by the HAPA. At the intraindividual level, results were less in line with the HAPA. Only action control emerged as consistent predictor of behavior.ConclusionsThis study emphasises the importance of examining health behavior change theories at both, the inter- and the intraindividual level.

  • Clinical and Subclinical Distress, Quality of Life, and Psychological
           Well-Being after Cardiac Rehabilitation
    • Authors: Sara Gostoli; Renzo Roncuzzi, Stefano Urbinati, Chiara Rafanelli
      Pages: 349 - 369
      Abstract: BackgroundThe literature has outlined positive effects of cardiac rehabilitation (CR) on clinical psychological distress (DSM depression and anxiety) and quality of life (QoL). In cardiac settings, subclinical distress (subthreshold depressive and anxious symptomatology) and psychological well-being also showed relevant clinical implications. This research explored these psychological variables, their changes over time and cardiac course of CR patients.MethodsClinical and subclinical distress, QoL, and psychological well-being were assessed in 108 consecutive patients undergoing CR, at baseline and up to 12 months after the program's completion.ResultsOf all patients, 25.9 per cent showed high distress with a DSM diagnosis, 31.5 per cent high distress without a DSM diagnosis, and 42.6 per cent low distress. Comparing these subgroups, worse QoL and psychological well-being were significantly linked not only to clinical but also to subclinical distress. After CR completion, a significant reduction in DSM diagnoses was observed, whereas there were no positive effects on subclinical distress, QoL, and well-being, or when they initially occurred, they were not long lasting. Moreover, only the subgroup with high distress without a DSM diagnosis was at greater risk for adverse cardiac outcomes, showing worse scores on items of contentment.ConclusionsThese findings confirm data on clinical distress reduction after CR completion. However, a large amount of relevant subclinical distress remains and predicts adverse cardiac events.

  • The Dynamic Nature of Self-Assessed Health (SAH) as a Function of Negative
           and Positive Affects among Cardiac Patients
    • Authors: Shira Peleg; Erga Drori, Shmuel Banai, Ariel Finkelstein, Shoshana Shiloh
      Pages: 370 - 386
      Abstract: BackgroundSelf-assessed health (SAH) predicts health outcomes above and beyond medical variables. One of the explanations for this robust finding is the sensitivity of SAH to changes in multiple aspects of health, including emotional factors. We assessed the dynamic nature of SAH by longitudinally examining the associations between initial and change levels of SAH and positive affect (PA) and negative affect (NA).MethodsParticipants were 138 cardiac patients undergoing coronary angioplasty. Self-report questionnaires measured SAH, PA, and NA, one day and one month after catheterisation.ResultsMeans of SAH and NA did not change between measurement points, but PA decreased. Cross-lagged analysis indicated that the best model for representing the data included a path from affect at hospitalisation to SAH one month later; that is, lower NA (but not PA) at hospitalisation predicted higher SAH a month later. A latent change model analysis also revealed that NA (but not PA) at hospitalisation predicted changes in SAH (but SAH did not predict changes in negative or positive affect); and that increases in positive affect and decreases in negative affect were linked to increases in SAH.ConclusionsThese findings highlight the importance of NA as an indicator of SAH and SAH change, and provide further insights into the dynamics of SAH in cardiac patients.

  • Third-Person Self-Talk Reduces Ebola Worry and Risk Perception by
           Enhancing Rational Thinking
    • Authors: Ethan Kross; Brian D. Vickers, Ariana Orvell, Izzy Gainsburg, Tim P. Moran, Margaret Boyer, John Jonides, Jason Moser, Ozlem Ayduk
      Pages: 387 - 409
      Abstract: BackgroundDuring the fall of 2014, the threat of an Ebola outbreak gripped the United States (Poll, 8–12 October 2014; see Harvard School of Public Health & SSRS, 2014), creating a unique opportunity to advance basic knowledge concerning how emotion regulation works in consequential contexts and translate existing research in this area to inform public health and policy.MethodWe addressed these issues by examining whether third-person self-talk, a simple technique that promotes emotion regulation, could nudge people into reasoning about Ebola more rationally. In all, 1,257 people from across the United States were asked to write about their feelings about Ebola using their name or I (i.e. third-person self-talk vs. first-person self-talk) as concerns about Ebola swelled (24 October 2014–26 October 2014).ResultsThird-person self-talk led participants who scored high on Ebola worry at baseline to generate more fact-based reasons not to worry about Ebola, which predicted reductions in their Ebola worry and risk perception. These findings held when controlling for several theoretically relevant covariates, highlighting their robustness.ConclusionThese results demonstrate how a simple linguistic technique can enhance rational thinking and quell worry about a pressing public health threat.

  • Socioeconomic Context as a Moderator in the Relationship between Body Mass
           Index and Depression in Europe
    • Authors: Javier Alvarez-Galvez; Diego Gomez-Baya
      Pages: 410 - 428
      Abstract: BackgroundObesity and depression are two major health issues in contemporary societies. This study aims to address two fundamental questions: (1) what is the impact of macro-level adverse socioeconomic circumstances on depression' and (2) how do macro-level variations in the socioeconomic context affect the relationship between body mass index (BMI) and depression'MethodsData from the 7th round of the European Social Survey were used, collected from a sample size of 37,623 participants and aggregated around a total of 20 countries. A random intercept multilevel model was constructed to study the variations in the relationship between depression and BMI. The contextual effect of risk of poverty, unemployment rate, and gross domestic product per capita were studied at the country level.ResultsFirst, both unemployment and poverty risk were found to be positively associated with depressive disorders. Second, the results show that a higher risk of poverty at the macro level may increase the effect of BMI on depression in European countries.ConclusionThe present study provides new evidence suggesting that the obesity–depression relationship will be, on average, stronger in countries with poor socioeconomic conditions. Therefore, adverse socioeconomic contextual conditions may increase depression associated with obesity.
