  • 4C/ID instructional design model: Effects on the students approaches to
           learning on 9th grade

    • Abstract: Este artigo tem como principal objetivo apresentar os resultados de uma investigação sobre o efeito da utilização de um ambiente de aprendizagem digital, destinado ao ensino dos circuitos elétricos e construído com base no modelo de Desenho Instrutivo de Quatro Componentes (4C/ID), sobre o tipo de abordagem à aprendizagem adotada por alunos do 9ºano. Constituímos dois grupos: um experimental (nE=76), no qual o tema circuitos elétricos foi ensinado com o ambiente digital (estratégia centrada no aluno) e um grupo de controlo (nC=49), no qual o tema circuitos elétricos foi ensinado com base num método convencional (estratégia centrada no professor). Para caracterizar o tipo de abordagem à aprendizagem adotado pelos alunos usámos o Inventário de Processos de Estudo (IPE) validado para várias amostras da população estudantil portuguesa. Os resultados revelaram: (1) equivalência no pré-teste entre os dois grupos ao nível das variáveis abordagens superficial e profunda; (2) no pós-teste, para o grupo experimental, ocorreu uma diminuição do uso da abordagem superficial e um aumento da pontuação para a variável abordagem profunda, não havendo alterações significativas nestas variáveis no grupo de controlo. A análise dos dados qualitativos da descrição do processo experimental, feita com base em observação das aulas e em entrevistas aos professores, permitiu-nos explicitar algumas características do ambiente de aprendizagem digital, tornando mais clara a interpretação dos resultados. O carácter multidimensional do constructo “abordagem à aprendizagem” evidenciou-se pelos valores de magnitude de efeito, que se mostraram globalmente baixos.The main purpose of this paper is to present the research results of the use of a digital learning environment, built with the four components instructional design model (4C/ID-model), on the students’ approach to learning. We used the digital environment to teach the subject of electrical circuits to 9th grade students. We formed two groups: the experimental group (nE=76) in which electrical circuits were taught with the digital learning environment (student-centered strategy) and a control group (nC=49) in which a conventional method (teacher-centered strategy) was used to teach the subject of electrical circuits. To assess the students approach to learning we used the “Inventário de Processos de Estudo” validated to several samples of the Portuguese student population. The results revealed that: (1) the two groups were equivalent on the surface and deep variables in the pre-test; (2) on the post-test, for the experimental group, there was a decrease of the surface learning approach and an increase of the deep learning approach, and there were no significant changes in the control group. The analysis of the qualitative data derived from the experimental process, based on the classes’ observation and in interviews with the teachers, allowed us to explain some characteristics of the digital learning environment, which allowed us to interpret the results more accurately. The multidimensional nature of the “approach to learning” construct was evident by the low effect sizes.
  • The experiences in the family of origin and the early maladaptive schemas
           as predictors of marital violence in men and women

    • Abstract: Marital violence is a worldwide issue that affects several economic, racial and ethnic groups. Assuming that the marital violence dynamics is interactive, this study aims to identify the predicting variables of the phenomenon, through the perspective of the Theory of Schemas by Jeffrey Young. This way, the importance of experiences within the family of origin as well as the Early Maladaptive Schemas predicting marital physical violence between men and women were investigated. There was a sample made up of 181 men and 181 women and the instruments applied for data collection were: Young Schema Questionnaire (YSQ-S3) and Revised Conflict Tactics Scale (CTS2). The analysis of the results was carried out through multiple regression analysis with the stepwise methodology. The results show that the defectiveness/shame schema in both men and women and the mistrust/abuse schema in men are predicting variables of the violence committed against the spouse. A longer adjustment in mothers was considered the protective variable of violent behaviors among women. Regarding the victimization of the violence, the defectiveness/shame schema in both men and women and the Mistrust/Abuse schema in men are predicting variables of the violence suffered in the intimate relationships. More functionality in the decision-making styles of mothers was identified as a violence-victimization protector among women. The outcome of this study amplifies the discussion on the variables which can identify the marital violence phenomenon, consolidating the importance of the Early Maladaptive Schemas in the marital violence.A violência conjugal é uma problemática mundial que abrange diferentes classes econômicas, raças e etnias. Partindo-se do pressuposto de que a dinâmica conjugal violenta é um fenômeno complexo e interacional, o presente estudo se propõe a identificar variáveis preditoras do fenômeno, utilizando a perspectiva da Teoria dos Esquemas de Jeffrey Young. Sendo assim, foi investigado o poder das experiências na família de origem e dos Esquemas Iniciais Desadaptativos como preditores da violência física cometida e sofrida na relação conjugal conforme o sexo. A amostra foi constituída por 181 homens e 181 mulheres e os instrumentos utilizados para a coleta de dados foram: Young Schema Questionnaire (YSQ-S3), e Revised Conflict Tactics Scale (CTS2). A análise dos resultados foi realizada através de análise de regressão múltipla com método stepwise. Os resultados indicaram que o esquema de defectividade/vergonha das mulheres e dos homens e o esquema de desconfiança/abuso dos homens são variáveis preditoras da violência física cometida contra o cônjuge. O maior ajustamento materno foi considerado a variável protetiva de comportamentos violentos cometidos pelas mulheres. Em relação à vitimização da violência, os esquemas de desconfiança/abuso das mulheres e dos homens, assim como o esquema de defectividade/vergonha dos homens foram identificados como preditores de violência física sofrida nos relacionamentos íntimos. A maior funcionalidade do estilo de decisão materno foi identificada como protetor de vitimização de violência para as mulheres. Os achados ampliam a discussão sobre as variáveis que podem explicar o fenômeno da violência conjugal, consolidando a importância da avaliação dos Esquemas Iniciais Desadaptativos em situação de violência conjugal.
  • Comparing maternal and paternal interactive behavior and communication in
           a study about collaborative play tasks with preschool children

    • Abstract: A investigação tende a descrever o pai como parceiro de jogo que favorece a liberdade de ação; enquanto a mãe, tende a reforçar a comunicação nas interações, envolvendo afetivamente a criança. Nos casos em que a mãe brinca e o pai presta cuidados básicos à criança, a qualidade da interação pai-filhos aumenta consideravelmente. Neste estudo, observamos pai e mãe independentemente na mesma situação experimental como parceiros da criança numa atividade lúdica de construção. Comparamos os seus comportamentos quando colocados no mesmo papel. Para o efeito, foi pedido a 19 díades mãe-filho(a) e 17 díades pai-filho(a) que realizassem, em 20 minutos, um produto à sua escolha com os materiais e ferramentas disponibilizados. As crianças tinham entre 3 e 5 anos, sem atrasos de desenvolvimento identificados. Pretendemos descrever e comparar os pais (mães e pais considerados em conjunto) quanto: (i) à empatia, atenção, reciprocidade, cooperação, elaboração/fantasia e desafio proposto; (ii) à qualidade da comunicação; e (iii) aos produtos realizados e escolhas de materiais. Os nossos resultados indicam poucas diferenças entre pais e mães. Em termos de comunicação, as mães realizam mais perguntas de processo do que os pais. As diferenças mais relevantes correspondem à forma como os pais e as mães reagem com os meninos e as meninas, dando maior liberdade de ação às meninas, mais feedback positivo e revelando-se mais sensíveis a responder às suas emoções. Os meninos perderam mais interesse durante a atividade e revelaram mais sinais de aborrecimento do que as meninas. O sexo das crianças afetou mais os resultados do que o dos pais, ou seja, os pais interagiram e comunicaram distintamente com meninas e meninos. Adicionalmente, a escolaridade dos pais correlacionou-se com comportamentos mais atentos, pacientes e cooperativos dos pais. Relativamente à idade dos progenitores, os pais mais novos e com mais filhos usaram mais materiais e ferramentas.The previous research performed in children life contexts tend to describe fathers as non-directive playmates; while mothers tend to reinforce the communication during interactions and involve affectively the child. When mothers are playmates and fathers give basic care to their child the quality of the interaction of mother-infant and father-infant increases considerably. In this study, fathers and mothers were observed independently in the same semi-experimental play situation with their children. For this purpose, 19 dyads mother-infant and 17 dyads father-infant participated in this 20 minutes experience, to manufacture one product using the materials and tools available to one’s choice. Children were between 3 and 5 years old and had no developmental problems identified. We aimed to: (i) compare the interactive quality of parents related to empathy, reciprocity, cooperation, fantasy and challenge; (ii) the communication quality and (iii) describe and compare the products made by the dyads mother-infant and father-infant, as well as the chosen materials. Our findings indicate few differences between mothers and fathers behaviour. In terms of communication, mothers communicate more with process questions than parents. The major differences correspond to how parents react to boys and girls, giving girls more freedom to explore, more positive feedback, and being more responsive to their emotions. The boys lost more often interest during the activity than the girls. Children’s gender affected the results more than the parents’, which indicates that the parents interact and communicate distinctly with girls and boys. Additionally, parents’ educational level correlated with more attentive, patient, and cooperative behaviour with their children. Regarding the age of the parents: younger parents and with more children use more materials and tools.
  • Parenting styles, academic adaptation and psychological well-being in
           young adults

    • Abstract: O desenvolvimento de relações de vinculação seguras com as figuras significativas e os estilos parentais, sugerem assumir um papel importante para o jovem adulto na transição e adaptação aos desafios externos, nomeadamente, à adaptação ao contexto académico e à manutenção de um bem-estar psicológico. O presente estudo objetivou analisar o papel dos estilos parentais na adaptação académica e bem-estar psicológico de jovens adultos assim como testar o papel moderador do género na associação anterior. A amostra foi constituída por 787 jovens universitários com idades compreendidas entre os 18 e os 25 anos (M=20.07, DP=1.7). Os resultados apontam para um efeito preditor positivo do bem-estar psicológico face à adaptação académica. Verificou-se também a existência de um efeito moderador do género na associação entre o estilo parental autoritativo, face ao pai e à mãe, e a adaptação académica.The development of secure attachment relationships with significant figures and parenting styles suggests that they play an important role for the young adult in the transition and adaptation to external challenges, in particular, adaptation to the academic context and maintenance of psychological well-being. The present study aimed to analyze the role of parenting styles in the academic adaptation and psychological well-being of young adults as well as to test the moderating role of gender in the previous association. The sample consisted of 787 university students aged 18 to 25 years (M=20.07, SD=1.7). The results point to a positive predictor effect of psychological well-being in relation to academic adaptation. It was also found that there is a gender moderating effect on the association between the authoritative parenting style, to father and mother, and academic adjustment.
  • Psychopathological symptomatology and social support in parents of
           children with autism spectrum disorder

    • Abstract: O presente estudo teve como principal objetivo analisar a presença (ou não) de sintomatologia psicopatológica nos pais das crianças com PEA (perturbação do espetro do autismo), bem como estudar o grau de satisfação destes com o suporte social. Para este efeito, investigámos uma amostra de 246 pais em que pelo menos um filho é portador de PEA. Utilizaram-se três instrumentos, nomeadamente um Questionário Sociobiográfico; o Inventário de Sintomas Psicopatológicos (BSI; Derogatis, 1982, versão portuguesa de Canavarro, 1999); e a Escala de Satisfação com o Suporte Social (Pais-Ribeiro, 2011). Os resultados indicaram que: (1) as mães das crianças com PEA apresentam maior sintomatologia psicopatológica do que os pais; (2) os pais e mães com 3 ou mais filhos percecionam índices de maior satisfação com a família comparativamente aos pais e mães com 1 ou 2 filhos; (3) existe uma correlação negativa entre todas as dimensões do suporte social e as da sintomatologia psicopatológica; (4) o sexo feminino é uma variável preditora para algumas das dimensões de sintomatologia psicopatológica. Os resultados foram discutidos com o intuito de proporcionar algumas diretrizes na intervenção clínica com pais de crianças com PEA.The present study had as main objective to analyze the presence (or not) of psychopathological symptomatology in the parents of children with ASD (autism spectrum disorder), as well as to study their degree of satisfaction with social support. For this effect, a sample of 246 parents in which at least a son is a bearer of ASD was investigated. Three instruments were used, namely Sociobiographical questionnaire; Brief Symptom Inventory (BSI; Derogatis, 1982, portuguese version of Canavarro, 1999); and Social Support Satisfaction Scale (Pais-Ribeiro, 2011). The results indicated that: (1) mothers of the children with ASD present higher levels of psychopathological symptomatology than the fathers; (2) parents with 3 or more children present higher rates of satisfaction with the family comparatively to the parents with 1 or 2 children; (3) there are a negative correlation between all the dimensions of the social support and of the psychopathological symptomatology; (4) female is a predictor for some of the psychopathological symptoms dimensions. The results were discussed with the intention of providing some directives in the clinical intervention with children’s and parents with ASD.
  • Invented spelling in preschool: Contributions for learning to
           read and write

    • Abstract: A presente investigação insere-se no quadro teórico da literacia emergente e pretende analisar os contributos de um programa de intervenção de escrita inventada no jardim-de-infância para a aprendizagem da leitura e escrita no 1º ano de escolaridade. Participaram 95 crianças no último ano do ensino pré-escolar que não sabiam ler nem escrever e que foram aleatoriamente divididas em duas condições: 48 no grupo experimental e 47 no grupo de controlo. Os participantes em cada condição eram equivalentes quanto à idade, habilitações académicas dos pais, raciocínio abstrato, consciência silábica, consciência fonémica e conhecimento de letras. Foram avaliadas as competências de escrita e leitura de palavras das crianças no jardim-de-infância (antes e depois do programa) e no final do 1º ano do ensino básico. Durante a intervenção, o grupo experimental participou em 10 sessões bissemanais de escrita inventada, enquanto o grupo de controlo realizou atividades de conto de histórias infantis. A análise dos dados revelou diferenças estatisticamente significativas entre os dois grupos, tanto em escrita como em leitura, apresentando o grupo experimental resultados superiores no final do pré-escolar e do 1º ano. Este estudo sugere a importância de incluir atividades de escrita inventada como prática pedagógica no contexto de jardim-de-infância.This study was developed within the theoretical framework of emergent literacy and aims at analysing the contributions of an invented spelling intervention programme in preschool for learning to read and write in the first year of primary school. 95 children attending the last year of preschool who did not know how to read or write participated in this study and were randomly divided into two conditions: 48 in the experimental group and 47 in the control group. The participants in each condition were equivalent on age, parents’ education level, abstract reasoning, syllabic awareness, phonemic awareness and letter knowledge. Children’s word reading and writing skills were tested in preschool (before and after the programme) and at the end of primary school. During the intervention period, the experimental group participated in 10 invented spelling biweekly sessions, whereas the control group participated in storytelling activities. Data analysis exposed statistically significant differences both in reading and in writing, since the experimental group displayed higher results at the end of primary school and at the end of Year 1. This study indicates that it is important to include invented spelling activities as a pedagogical practice in preschool contexts.
  • Decision-making in the system of protection of children and young people:
           A study comparing the attitudes of professionals and students

    • Abstract: Este estudo tem como principal objetivo analisar as atitudes de 200 estudantes do ensino superior e 200 profissionais, responsáveis pela supervisão de casos e pelas recomendações para a intervenção, em domínios relacionados com os processos de tomada de decisão no sistema de proteção das crianças e jovens, em matérias como o acolhimento familiar e o acolhimento residencial. O estudo adota uma estratégia quantitativa e os dados foram recolhidos em 2014 nas principais regiões do país (Braga, Porto, Coimbra, Lisboa e Faro), com a aplicação do questionário ‘Child Welfare Attitudes Questionnaire’ (Davidson-Arad & Benbenishty, 2008, 2010). Os resultados obtidos permitem concluir que ambos os participantes, profissionais e estudantes, podem ser divididos em dois grupos, um mais favorável à retirada e outro menos favorável à retirada. Em comparação, os profissionais são menos favoráveis à retirada da criança e defendem mais a reunificação do que os estudantes. Não há diferenças estatisticamente significativas entre os participantes no que diz respeito à opinião sobre o papel do acolhimento familiar e do acolhimento residencial, assim como à participação da criança no processo de decisão. No entanto, os profissionais apoiam mais a participação dos pais no processo de decisão do que os estudantes. Finalmente, apresentam-se algumas implicações para a prática.This study has as main objective to analyse the attitudes of 200 students of higher education and 200 professionals, responsible for case supervision and recommendations for intervention, in areas related to decision-making processes in the child and young people protection system, in matters such as foster care and residential care. The study adopts a quantitative strategy and data were collected in 2014 in the main regions of the country (Braga, Porto, Coimbra, Lisbon and Faro), with the application of the questionnaire “Child Welfare Attitudes Questionnaire” (Davidson-Arad & Benbenishty, 2008, 2010). The results show that both participants, professionals and students, can be divided into two groups, one more and other less favourable to removal. In comparison, professionals are less favourable to child’s removal and advocate reunification more than the students. There are no statistically significant differences between the participants regarding the role of foster and residential care, as well as the participation of the child in the decision-making process. However, professionals are more supportive of parental involvement in decision-making than students. Finally, there are some implications for practice.
  • The Reading the Mind in the Eyes Test: A Portuguese version of
           the adults’ test

    • Abstract: The Reading the Mind in the Eyes Test (RMET) is a Theory of Mind task that assesses the ability to understand others’ mental states in both healthy and clinical populations. The goal of the present study was to translate the revised version of the adults’ RMET to the Portuguese (European) language, investigate item validity for this version and differences related to gender. The English revised version was translated into Portuguese and 5 pilot studies were run to reach a final Portuguese version of the test. After these procedures, 130 adult participants (71 females) answered a computer version of the RMET. Thirty items showed appropriate answer distribution, while the remaining six did not meet the initially stipulated criteria for item validity. Mean scores for this adaptation were similar to those found in the original revised version and other translations. We found no differences related to gender in our sample. Future investigations should explore additional validity and reliability measures of this instrument.O Reading the Mind in the Eyes Test (RMET) é uma tarefa de Teoria da Mente utilizada para avaliar a capacidade de compreender estados mentais de terceiros, tanto em populações normativas como clínicas. O presente estudo teve como objectivo traduzir para Português (Europeu) a versão adulta revista do RMET, investigar a validade dos itens desta versão e diferenças associadas ao género. A versão revista Inglesa foi traduzida para Português e foram realizados 5 estudos piloto de forma a chegar a uma versão final Portuguesa do teste. Após estes procedimentos, 130 participantes adultos (71 mulheres) responderam a uma versão computorizada do RMET. Trinta itens mostraram uma distribuição de respostas adequada, enquanto os restantes seis itens não foram de encontro aos critérios de validação interna considerados. As médias das pontuações obtidas nesta versão do RMET foram semelhantes às conseguidas tanto na versão original revista do teste como noutras traduções. Não foram observadas nesta amostra diferenças significativas entre géneros. Investigações futuras deverão explorar indicadores adicionais de validade e fiabilidade deste instrumento.
  • Parenting Behavior Questionnaire revised (QEEP-r): Psychometric study and
           measurement invariance analysis for mothers and fathers

    • Abstract: Este artigo apresenta o Questionário de Estilos Educativos Parentais revisto (QEEP-r), que oferece uma medida da perceção dos adolescentes quanto aos estilos educativos parentais (tal como a sua primeira versão, o QEEP), mas distinguindo o alvo da avaliação em pai e mãe e focando a dimensão da promoção da autonomia. São estudadas as propriedades psicométricas e avaliada a invariância da escala quanto aos estilos educativos do pai e aos estilos educativos da mãe. Um total de 664 participantes, alunos do ensino básico e secundário de seis escolas dos distritos de Braga e Porto, com idades compreendidas entre os 12 e os 18 anos (M=15.31, DP=1.28), do género feminino (54.20%) e masculino (43.50%) preencheu o QEEP-r. Os resultados da análise fatorial confirmatória evidenciam uma estrutura tridimensional do QEEP-r e propriedades psicométricas adequadas. A estrutura tridimensional inclui um fator de autonomia psicológica, um fator de clima positivo e um fator de conhecimento. Do ponto de vista da invariância da medida foi identificada a invariância configural e a invariância métrica, mas não a invariância escalar ou residual. Este instrumento é relevante no contexto da investigação em língua portuguesa sobre os EEP, na medida em que permite avaliar a perceção dos adolescentes até aos 18 anos de idade sobre os EEP dos pais, através de duas escalas (pai e mãe) entre as quais se constata invariância métrica.The current study presents the Parenting Behavior Questionnaire revised (QEEP-r), which offers a measure of adolescents’ perceptions of father and mother’s parenting behaviors (as its first version QEEP), however distinguishing the target of the assessment between father and mother and focusing the dimension autonomy support. Psychometric properties of the measure are addressed as well as measurement invariance analysis regarding father and mother’s parenting behaviors. A total of 664 participants, middle and high school students from six schools located at the districts of Braga and Porto, aged between 12 and 18 years old (M=15.31, SD=1.28), female (54.20%) and male (43.50%), filled in the questionnaire. Results from the confirmatory factor analyses revealed a tridimensional factor structure of QEEP-r, comprised by the factors autonomy support, warmth and knowledge, and adequate psychometric properties. Configural and metric invariance were found for father and mother’s parenting behaviors, but not scalar nor residual invariance. This questionnaire is relevant in the Portuguese language research context regarding parenting behaviors, as it provides a measure of adolescents’ perceptions until the age of 18, through two scales for father and mother’s parenting behaviors with metric invariance.
