  • Características de la comunicación en empresas ecuatorianas: una
           primera aproximación

      El tema de investigación nace de los datos obtenidos en una investigación anterior sobre clima organizacional realizada por los mismos autores, donde el factor «Comunicación» fue el más llamativo. En el presente estudio se determina el proceso de comunicación de las empresas afiliadas a la Cámara Nacional del Calzado (CALTU), provincia de Tungurahua (Ecuador). Es una investigación de tipo exploratorio, descriptivo, cualitativo, fenomenológico, inductivo, hermenéutico-dialéctico, no experimental, transversal. Se aplican entrevistas en profundidad a los gerentes/propietarios de las empresas de calzado. El procesamiento de datos se realiza a través del software Atlas.ti, herramienta informática que facilita el análisis cualitativo de datos textuales. El análisis metodológico de los resultados se apoya en la teoría fundamentada, cuyo principio básico es la construcción de teoría partiendo directamente de los datos obtenidos, y no de supuestos a priori, de otras investigaciones o de marcos existentes. Se concluye que los entrevistados entienden la comunicación organizacional básicamente como la comunicación con el trabajador. Y la comunicación técnica es más fluida que la comunicación personal: existe apertura para la comunicación ascendente y para las sugerencias del personal, siempre y cuando la comunicación se relacione con la información necesaria para la ejecución de las tareas. The research topic arises from the data obtained in an earlier research on Organizational Climate conducted by the same authors, where the «Communication» factor was the most striking. In the present study, the communication process of the companies affiliated to the National Shoe Chamber (CALTU), Tungurahua, Ecuador, is determined. It is an investigation of type exploratory, descriptive, qualitative, phenomenological, inductive, hermeneutic-dialectical, non-experimental, transversal. In-depth interviews are conducted with managers/owners of footwear companies. The data processing is done through Atlas.ti software, a computer tool that facilitates the qualitative analysis of textual data. The methodological analysis of the results is based on the Grounded Theory, whose fundamental principle is the construction of theory starting directly from the data obtained, and not from a priori assumptions, from other research or from existing frameworks. It concludes that interviewees understand organizational communication basically as communication with the worker. And technical communication is more fluid than personal communication: there is openness to the upward communication and to the suggestions of the staff, as long as the communication is related to the information necessary for the execution of the tasks.

  • Influencias del aprendizaje musical en el bienestar de un grupo de

      Este artículo expone una investigación realizada para valorar la influencia del aprendizaje musical, en un grupo de adultos mayores de 65 años. Las actividades musicales realizadas se basaron en audioperceptiva (audición musical activa, entrenamiento de la discriminación auditiva, lectura musical) y canto grupal. Se realizó una valoración inicial y otra al final que han evidenciado la mejora en el bienestar subjetivo de todos los participantes. Con respecto a las habilidades cognitivas, los participantes muestran un cierto deterioro inicial, pero se han mantenido sus capacidades en todos los casos, y ha habido mejoras en algunos integrantes del grupo. Se considera que el programa debería aplicarse durante más tiempo para valorar su influencia en la conservación de habilidades cognitivas a medio plazo. This article presents an investigation to evaluate the influence of musical learning in a group of adults over 65 years. The musical activities were based on audioperceptive (active musical hearing, training of the auditory discrimination, musical reading) and group song. An initial, and final assessment was carried out where the improvement in the subjective well-being of the participants was evidenced. With regard to cognitive abilities, there is some cognitive impairment at the beginning, but the initial abilities have been maintained in all cases, and there have been improvements in several of the group members. It is considered that the program should be applied for a longer time to assess its influence on conservation of cognitive abilities.

  • Comportamiento prosocial y agresivo en niños: tratamiento conductual
           dirigido a padres y profesores

      El análisis conductual aplicado a través del entrenamiento a padres y profesores ha demostrado su efectividad para incrementar el comportamiento prosocial en niños que exhiben conductas agresivas; sin embargo, es escaso el trabajo de investigación que implique el efecto aditivo del tratamiento de ambos agentes. El objetivo del estudio fue conocer la efectividad de un programa de entrenamiento a padres y a profesores en 2 condiciones experimentales, para disminuir el comportamiento agresivo e incrementar el prosocial en alumnado de Educación Básica, en un estudio cuasiexperimental con diseño de inversión A-B-A. Participaron 3 docentes, 14 padres de familia y 94 alumnos, identificando a 14 que exhibieron comportamiento agresivo y mostraron déficit en comportamiento prosocial. Los programas de intervención empleados en el estudio se organizaron en 2 condiciones experimentales: la primera incluyó solo el entrenamiento a padres y la segunda incluyó el entrenamiento a padres más el entrenamiento a profesores en técnicas de modificación conductual. Los resultados demostraron que la intervención con 2 agentes de cambio obtuvo un mayor incremento en el comportamiento prosocial y una mayor disminución de comportamiento agresivo en el contexto familiar comparado con el grupo que recibió solo el entrenamiento a padres. También el tratamiento combinado demostró cambios significativos en el comportamiento de los niños en el contexto escolar. Applied behavior analysis has demonstrated its effectiveness to increase prosocial behavior in children with aggressive behavior through parent and teacher training, however, research work is limited regard the additive effect of the treatment with both agents. The target of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of an intervention program addressed to teachers and another addressed to parents in a quasi-experimental study with A-B-A design. Three teachers, 14 parents and 94 students participated, identifying 14 who presented aggressive behavior and showed deficits in pro-social behavior. The intervention programs used in the study were organized in 2 experimental conditions, the first included only parent training and the second included parent training plus teacher training in behavior modification techniques. Results showed that the intervention with 2 agents was the most effective to increase prosocial behavior and decrease aggressive behavior in the family context compared with the group that received only parent training. Also the combined treatment showed significant changes in the school context.

  • Asignación de etiquetas de talla a terceros en función de las

      Se averiguó si el sexo, la edad y el nivel educativo de un observador influyen sobre la etiqueta de talla que asigna a un tercero. Adultos (99 hombres y 176 mujeres; edad media de 40.52 años) asignaron las etiquetas de delgado, normal, con sobrepeso u obeso a ocho siluetas masculinas y ocho femeninas. Entre el 1 y el 82% de los participantes asignó una misma etiqueta a varias siluetas que no se correspondió con la etiqueta conforme al índice de masa corporal de los hombres y mujeres que representaban. Las mujeres, los participantes más jóvenes y los participantes con educación universitaria sobreestimaron la talla de hombres y de mujeres en mayor grado que sus contrapartes. En cambio, los hombres, los participantes adultos y los participantes con educación básica tendieron a subestimarla. Así, la estimación de la talla de otros efectivamente varió en función de las características sociodemográficas del observador. El etiquetamiento de las siluetas femeninas tendió a ser más preciso que el de las masculinas. Las normas culturales de cada subgrupo posiblemente uniformaron dentro de cada subgrupo el etiquetamiento de terceros. Los resultados añaden la asignación de etiquetas de talla a terceros al conocimiento previo sobre la influencia de los preceptos culturales sobre la percepción visual. The purpose of the study was to determine if body-size-labeling of other people varies according to the sex, age and educational level of the labeler. Adults (99 men and 176 women; mean age 40.52) assigned body size labels (thin, normal, overweight or obese) to eight masculine and eight feminine silhouettes. Between 1 and 82% of the participants assigned a same label to various silhouettes, that differed from the one that corresponded to the men and women represented by the silhouettes according to their body mass index. Results showed that women, younger participants and those with university studies overestimated the body size of both men and women to a greater degree than their counterparts. By contrast, men, adult participants and those with basic education underestimated the body size of men and women. Thus, body size labeling indeed varied with the sociodemographic characteristics of the observer. Labeling feminine silhouettes tended to be more precise than labeling masculine silhouettes. It was concluded that the cultural norms of each group might have uniformed within each subgroup the labeling of third parties. Results add body-size-labeling of third parties to the previous knowledge on the influence of cultural norms on visual perception.

      Alrededor del 75% de los habitantes de Metlatónoc, Guerrero, viven en pobreza extrema (ENSANUT, 2012), lo que aumenta sus probabilidades de padecer problemas de salud, fundamentalmente en materias de higiene y nutrición. Para proporcionar a esta población herramientas que mejoren el control sobre la toma de decisiones que afectan su salud y prevenir enfermedades, se implementó un programa comunitario basado en habilidades para la vida y en el Marco para Facilitar el Empoderamiento Intrínseco (Pick y Sirkin, 2010). Se impartió un taller para formar a 35 promotores, quienes lo replicaron con la población meta siguiendo una metodología participativa y vivencial, llegando a 4,728 personas —casi todas mujeres—. Para evaluar el efecto del programa se aplicó un cuestionario de autorreporte; con los promotores se utilizó un diseño longitudinal: pre, post y seguimiento, y con la población meta un diseño pre-post con grupo control. Se encontraron efectos favorables y significativos en gran parte de las variables evaluadas (conocimientos, actitudes y conductas meta, habilidades para la vida, barreras psicosociales, agencia personal y empoderamiento intrínseco), en ambos tipos de participantes. Los hallazgos se discuten a la luz de su contribución para disminuir la vulnerabilidad de las personas y potenciar su desarrollo. About 75% of the population of Metlatónoc, Guerrero, México, lives in extreme poverty (ENSANUT, 2012), which increases the probability of having health problems, regarding their hygiene and nutrition. In order to facilitate tools which can allow this population to improve their control over their decisions with respect to their health and disease prevention, a community-based program based on life skills and the Framework for Enabling Intrinsic Empowerment (Pick y Sirkin, 2010) was implemented. Thirty five promoters were trained through an experiential workshop, who replicated it with 4,728 people —mostly women—. To evaluate the program effect, a self-report questionnaire was applied; a longitudinal design (pre, post and follow-up) was used with the promoters and a pre-post with control group with the target population. With both groups, positive statistically significant effects were found in most of the variables: knowledge, attitudes and target behaviors, life skills, psychosocial barriers, personal agency and intrinsic empowerment. Findings are discussed in light of their contribution to diminish the vulnerability of this population, and strengthen their potential for development.

  • Construcción de una escala de ideología política en el contexto

      La ideología política refleja una serie de creencias y comportamientos que pueden ser medidos, siendo necesario la creación de un instrumento psicométrico que permita llevar a cabo dicho fin. Para ello, se utilizó como base la escala construida por Brussino, Rabbia, Imhoff y Paz García (2011), quienes desarrollaron un trabajo similar en Córdoba, Argentina. El procedimiento contempló la valoración de personas expertas, entrevistas cognitivas y una muestra de 117 asesoras y asesores de la Asamblea Legislativa de Costa Rica, además del apoyo de dos personas diputadas. Los datos arrojan que el instrumento mide tres tipos de ideología (conservadora, socialista y progresista) con un índice aceptable de confiabilidad (α=0.747). The political ideology reflects a series of beliefs and behaviors that can be measured, being necessary the creation of a psychometric instrument. In this way, we used the scale constructed by Brussino, Rabbia, Imhoff, & Paz García (2011), who developed a similar work in Cordoba, Argentina. The procedure included expert's criteria, cognitive interviews and a sample of 117 advisers from the Legislative Assembly of Costa Rica, in addition to the support of two deputies. The data show the instrument can measure three types of ideology (conservative, socialist and progressive) with an acceptable reliability (α=.747).

  • Conciencia racial en una muestra de niños veracruzanos

      En México la discriminación por origen étnico es un fenómeno documentado, como lo informa el Consejo Nacional para Prevenir la Discriminación (CONAPRED). Identificar el grupo étnico al que uno pertenece y categorizar a otros según sus características físicas se denomina «conciencia racial» (Clark y Clark, 1939, 1947, 1950). Greenfield (2009) propone que los patrones de socialización son modificados por cambios sociodemográficos en el medio socializador. El estudio se basó en las investigaciones de Clark y Clark (1939, 1947, 1950) añadiendo una muñeca similar al fenotipo «moreno» presente en el 64% de la población en México. Se aplicó a 180 menores de primer grado de primaria de la zona centro del Estado de Veracruz en niños con fenotipo «mestizo nahua» (Buentello, Peñaloza, Salamanca y Sanabria, 2005), 90 de medio urbano y 90 de medio rural que, aunque comparten origen étnico, son socializados de modo distinto; la comparación se realizó para contrastar si existen diferencias significativas entre ambos medios en el desarrollo de la conciencia racial, medida en: actitudes y prejuicio a grupos raciales, identificación de grupos raciales y autoidentificación racial. No se encontraron diferencias significativas al comparar los medios de socialización; la tendencia general fue asociar «lo blanco» con lo bueno y lo malo con «lo oscuro». Discrimination related to ethnic origins in Mexico is a documented topic as the Consejo Nacional para Prevenir la Discriminación (CONAPRED) reports. Understanding oneself as a member of an ethnic group and categorizing others and their groups is denominated “Racial Awareness” (Clark & Clark, 1939, 1947, 1950). Greenfield (2009) proposed that socialization patterns are modified by the sociodemographic changes in the socialization media. This study was bases on Clark and Clark studies (1939, 1947, 1950) adding a doll phenotypically similar to the 64% of the considered “brunette” Mexican population. The experiment was applied to 180 first graders at the central zone of the State of Veracruz in “mestizo nahua” phenotypical children (Buentello, Peñaloza, Salamanca & Sanabria, 2005), 90 from urban media and 90 from rural media, that despite of sharing the ethnic origin, are socialized differently. The stablished comparison objective was to check if actually there are significant differences in the Racial Awareness development, measured by: attitudes and prejudice towards Racial Groups, Racial Groups Identification and Racial Autoidentification. No significant differences were found among the socialization media; the general tendency was to associate “the whiter” choices with the positive terms and the negative terms with “the darker” choices.

      Las prácticas de crianza parentales son significativas en etapas tempranas del desarrollo. En la adolescencia, aunque existe influencia de otros ámbitos sociales, estas prácticas aún continúan teniendo un papel significativo. El diseño y la construcción de instrumentos de medición para estas prácticas de crianza en adolescentes se han caracterizado por la complejización de variables. Esta investigación tiene como objetivo elaborar y aportar evidencias de validez estructural de la Escala de Percepción de Prácticas de Crianza para Adolescentes (Flores et al., 2010), en una muestra conformada por 623 adolescentes de Mérida, Yucatán, de entre 12 y 18 años (51.8% mujeres y 48.2% hombres). Los resultados obtenidos en el análisis factorial confirmatorio mostraron ajustes significativos (X 2 =1,423.049, gl=374, p =0.000; CFI=0.916, GFI=0.917, TLI=0.909, RMSEA=0.049, RMR=0.055) en un modelo de tres dimensiones: afectividad (α=0.93), control (α=0.81) y apoyo (α=0.62), con propiedades psicométricas y evidencias de validez estructural significativas. Se reporta que la afectividad y el apoyo se asocian con la percepción de las prácticas de crianza maternas en adolescentes, mientras que la dimensión de control se asocia con las prácticas de crianza paternas. The parental parenting practices are significant in the early stages of development. In adolescence, although there is influence from other social spheres, these parental practices still continue to play a significant role. However the design and construction of measurement instruments for these adolescent parenting practices have been characterized by the complexization of variables. This research aims to elaborate and provide evidence of structural validity of the Parenting Perception Scale for Adolescents (Flores et al., 2010) in a sample consisted of 623 adolescents of Mérida, Yucatán, between 12 and 18 years old (51.8% are women, and 48.2% are men)). The results showed that the structural equivalence and confirmatory analyzes obtained significant adjustments (X 2 =1,423.049, gl=374, P =.000; CFI=.916, GFI=.917, TLI=.909, RMSEA=.049, RMR=.055) in a three dimensional model: the affectivity dimension (α= 93), the control dimension (α=.81) and the support dimension (α=.62). Psychometric properties and evidence of significant structural validity in the scale were found. It is reported that the affective dimension and the support dimension are associated with the perception of maternal parenting practices in adolescents, while the control dimension is associated with perception of parental parenting practices.

      El uso universal del Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI), y sus versiones, ha creado un marco de inferencias polémicas sobre el cimiento anglosajón del MBI. El estudio analiza la universalidad del constructo de burnout del MBI en un contexto latinoamericano, examinando su validez, mediante análisis factorial exploratorio, confirmatorio y de fiabilidad. Un total de 505 docentes nicaragüenses participaron en el estudio. El 41% de los ítems no superaron las cargas factoriales. El mayor cuestionamiento acopia las inferencias de las dimensiones Despersonalización y Realización personal, apuntando a la probable falta de correspondencia cultural del constructo. El Agotamiento emocional resultó consistente y con la fiabilidad aceptable. El modelo del análisis factorial confirmatorio con el mejor ajuste mostró que el burnout puede ser interpretado como parte de una sola variable latente. Se concluyó que el constructo del MBI, tal como se plantea, no muestra suficiente peso para asumir su universalidad entre culturas heterogéneas. Las inconsistencias encontradas en la Despersonalización y la Realización personal dan indicios que se trata de un fenómeno específico ligado a contextos culturales determinados. The universal use of the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) and its versions has created a framework of controversial inferences about the MBI's Anglo-Saxon foundation. The study analyzes the universality of the MBI burnout construct in a Latin American context, examining its validity, through exploratory, confirmatory factor analysis plus reliability; 505 Nicaraguan teachers participated in the study; 41% of the items did not surpass the factorial loads. The major inquiring points out to the inferences of the Depersonalization and Personal Realization dimensions, directing to the probable lack of cultural correspondence of the construct. Emotional exhaustion was consistent and with acceptable reliability. The model of Confirmatory Factor Analysis with the best fit showed that burnout can be interpreted as part of a single latent variable. It was concluded that the MBI construct, as proposed, does not show enough weight to assume its universality among heterogeneous cultures. The inconsistencies found in Depersonalization and Personal Realization give indications that it is a specific phenomenon linked to particular cultural contexts.

      Debido al rápido crecimiento en las habilidades sociales y emocionales tempranas, variaciones significativas en el desarrollo socioemocional comienzan tempranamente y pueden hacerse más fuertes a través del tiempo. Además, variables individuales y familiares pueden contribuir a incrementar estas diferencias entre niños de una misma edad. Este estudio examina la relación entre la percepción materna del desarrollo socioemocional infantil a los 12 meses de edad con la sensibilidad materna, el sexo y temperamento infantil, y el nivel socioeconómico familiar, y analiza cuál de estas variables predice dicha percepción. Un total de 90 niños y niñas fueron evaluados con sus madres al año de edad, con la Escala Social Emocional (Bayley), el Infant Behavior Questionnaire (IBQ-R-VSF), la Evaluación de Sensibilidad del Adulto (ESA) y un cuestionario sociodemográfico. Los resultados mostraron que el mejor predictor de la percepción materna del desarrollo socioemocional infantil a esta edad era el temperamento del niño, específicamente la dimensión de extraversión. Because of the rapid growth in early social and emotional skills, significant variations in socioemotional development begin early and may become stronger over time. In adittion, individual and family variables may contribute to increase these differences among children of the same age. This study examined the relationship between maternal perception of infants’ social-emotional development at 12 months of age, maternal sensitivity, child's gender and temperament, and family's socioeconomic status, and analyzes which of these variables predict such perception. 90 boys and girls were assessed with their mothers at 1 year old with Bayley Social Emotional Scale, Infant Behavior Questionnaire (IBQ-R-VSF), Adult's Sensitivity Assessment (ESA), and a socio-demographic questionnaire. Results showed that the best predictor of maternal perception of infant socio-emotional development at this age was the child's temperament, specifically the dimension of extraversion.

      En el actual sistema educativo, existe una enorme preocupación por el bajo rendimiento en las diferentes áreas académicas, lo que promueve la búsqueda de nuevas fórmulas de actuación docente. Esta búsqueda exige que el alumnado deba aprender nuevas habilidades y capacidades con el fin de adaptarse a este proceso en continua evolución. Desde esta perspectiva, con preocupación por los escasos logros académicos, se pone de relieve la enorme importancia que pueden llegar a tener las emociones y su adecuado control para la mejora del mismo. Este trabajo tiene como objetivo validar un cuestionario para evaluar el miedo, utilizando como referencia el Fear Survey Schedule for Children II (FSSC-II) (Ascensio et al., 2012) y destinado a una muestra de estudiantes desde educación primaria hasta bachillerato en la ciudad de Ceuta. Para esto se contó con 961 participantes, procedentes de 8 centros distintos (4 Centros de Educación Infantil y Primaria [CEIP] y 4 Institutos de Enseñanza Secundaria [IES]). El 53.4% fueron mujeres, el 46.6% varones, el 66.3% musulmanes, el 33.7%, con edades comprendidas entre los 6 y los 18 años. Considerando la muestra por cultura, el 66.3% fueron musulmanes y el 33.7% cristianos. Como instrumento de evaluación se empleó el FSSC-II, adaptado al castellano por Ascensio et al. (2012). Se reflejan niveles de fiabilidad altos así como las dimensiones esperadas (5) para el cuestionario, apareciendo intercorrelaciones positivas entre los totales y las dimensiones que lo conforman. Este cuestionario se muestra como instrumento adecuado para evaluar estas capacidades en la población adolescente en un contexto diferente al del trabajo de referencia. In the current educational system, an enormous preoccupation by the low yield in the different academic areas exists, which promotes the search of new formulas of educational performance. This search cause that the pupils must learn new abilities and capacities with the purpose of conforming itself to this process in continuous evolution. From this perspective, with preoccupation by the little academic profits, the enormous importance is put of relief that can get to have the emotions and their suitable control for the improvement of himself. Socio-emotional states are starting to become more relevant and are now part of a reality in the field of Education. In this field there is high interest in emotional education programs, especially in earlier stages. These programs must be evaluated to check this efficiently. The objective of this paper is to validate a questionnaire to assess Fear, using as reference the Fear Survey Schedule for Children II (FSSC-II) (Ascensio et al., 2012) aimed at a sample of students from Primary to the end of Secondary Education. We focused on 961 participants from 8 different centers (4 schools and 4 high schools) that clearly reflect the city's pluricultural features. Considering age we focused on children from 6 to 18 years old. Considering gender, the 46.6% of them are boys and the 53.4% are girls. If we consider culture and custom religion, 66.3% are Muslims and 33.7% Christians. The technique used in this survey is a test developed to assess Fear (FSSC-II) adapted for its use in the Spanish language by Ascensio et al. (2012). The results show high levels of reliability. Our expectations about dimensions (5) were confirmed for the questionnaire. There are positive correlations between totals and the dimensions of the questionnaire. Therefore this questionnaire is an appropriate tool to evaluate the Fear in a teenager sample in our context.

      The aim of this study was to measure the eight Psychological Types proposed by Carl G. Jung in Mexican population. A cross-sectional, multicenter, exploratory study was carried out, for which a psychometric instrument based on Jungian typology theory was developed. The Psychological Type Indicator (ITP, for its acronym in Spanish) consisted of 8 subscales (one per psychological type). It was administered to a sample of 1194 participants and validated by the methodological and statistical procedure developed by Reyes Lagunes and García y Barragán. The participants were Mexican university students, ranging from 17 to 40 years (median=21, IQR=4; 63% female). The internal consistency of the instrument was determined, obtaining an alpha coefficient of 0.873. An exploratory factor analysis indicated a structure of 10 factors, which together explained 32.672% of the variance. Four of the found factors were consistent with Jungian typology (Introverted Feeling, Introverted Thinking, Extraverted Sensing and Extraverted Feeling). The rest of the factors grouped attributes of this theory, which enable a new way of assessing personality in Mexican population with reference on this model of personality.

      El propósito de este estudio instrumental fue obtener las propiedades psicométricas de la Escala de Violencia de Pareja que se expresa a través de Medios Electrónicos (EVIME) en adolescentes mexicanos. Colaboraron 878 participantes, hombres y mujeres con edades de entre 12 y 19 años (M=16.58; DE=1.36 años). Dicha escala está compuesta por 32 reactivos agrupados en 5 factores y con formato de respuesta tipo Likert de 4 opciones. Se obtuvo la validez de constructo mediante análisis factorial de componentes principales con rotación ortogonal (varimax) que explican el 57.7% de la varianza (prueba KMO=0.93, p =0.00). La consistencia interna total tiene un valor alfa de Cronbach α=0.94. Las prevalencias de violencia en una muestra probabilística de 1,278 adolescentes para cada una de las dimensiones son: control, monitoreo intrusivo y vigilancia cibernética=44.3%; agresión verbal=15.5%; agresión sexual=11.9%; coerción sexual=7.7% y humillación=6.1%. La violencia de pareja que se manifiesta a través de medios electrónicos es un problema social y de salud pública emergente que posee cualidades específicas debido a la naturaleza de las herramientas tecnológicas que utilizan los adolescentes para interactuar con la pareja romántica. The aim of this study was to get the psychometric characteristics for the Social/Electronic Media Violence in Couples Scale (EVIME for its initials in Spanish) in Mexican teenagers. There were 878 participants, men and women with ages ranging between 12 and 19 years old (M=16.58; SD=1.36). This scale is composed by 32 items grouped into 5 factors with 4 Likert-type answer options. The construct validity was obtained through a factorial analysis of principal components with an orthogonal rotation (varimax) which account for the 57.7% of the variance (KMO test=.93, P =.00). The total internal consistency has a Cronbach's alpha of α=.94. Violence prevalence in a probabilistic simple of 1,278 teenagers for each dimension are: control, intrusive monitoring and cybernetic vigilance=44.3%; verbal aggression=15.5%; sexual aggression=11.9%; sexual coercion=7.7% and humiliation=6.1%. Violence in couples through social/electronic media is a social and public health growing problem with specific characteristics due to all the variety of technological tools teenagers use to interact with their couple.

      Researchers are making increasing use of the distinction between cultural logics emphasizing dignity, face, and honor. Students from eight nations including two from Latin America rated items tapping the extent to which they believed that most persons in their nation endorsed these types of mindset. Their ratings did not accord with prior beliefs as to which cultures exemplify dignity, face, and honor. However, the predictions that analytic cognition would be more prevalent in dignity cultures and contrasting types of holistic cognition would be more prevalent in face and honor cultures were supported. The belief that the logic of dignity was prevalent within one's nation was significantly associated with higher life satisfaction.

      La fatiga es una sensación de cansancio físico con consecuencias adversas en la calidad de vida de las personas, por consiguiente, es importante contar con instrumentos confiables y válidos para medirla. Una de las escalas más utilizadas es la Escala de Impacto de Fatiga, sin embargo, hay versiones con una y tres dimensiones en diversas culturas. Por lo que el propósito de este trabajo fue traducir, adaptar de manera culturalmente relevante y comparar las estructuras de una y tres dimensiones de la Escala de Impacto de Fatiga, para identificar la más adecuada en población general de la Ciudad de México. Se trabajó con tres grupos diferentes de participantes; el primero para la traducción y adaptación conformado por siete jueces expertos en el idioma, el segundo para la validación psicométrica con 205 participantes de población general y, el tercero, para el análisis factorial confirmatorio con 406 habitantes de la Ciudad de México. Se probó la distribución, discriminación, confiabilidad y estructura de la escala, en un análisis exploratorio y confirmatorio, quedando una escala final de 10 reactivos con tres factores: física, mental y psicosocial que explican el 59% de varianza con buen ajuste (X2[21.7] =20,762, p=0.522; CFI=1; RMSEA=0), con una confiabilidad α=0.93. Fatigue is a sensation of physical weariness with adverse consequences on the quality of life of people, therefore, it is important to have reliable and valid instruments to measure it. One of the most widely used is the Fatigue Impact Scale, however, there are one- and three-dimensional versions in several cultures. Therefore, the aim of this work was to translate, culturally relevant and compare the one and three-dimensional structures of the Fatigue Impact Scale to identify the most appropriate in the general population of Mexico City, with three different groups of participants. The first one for translation and adaptation made up with seven expert judges in the language; the second for psychometric validation with 205 participants from the general population, and the third, for confirmatory factor analysis with 406 inhabitants of Mexico City. The distribution, discrimination, reliability and structure of the scale were tested in an exploratory and confirmatory analysis, with a final scale of 10 items with three factors: physical, mental and psychosocial explaining the 59% variance with goodness of fit (X2[21.7]=20.762, p=0.522; CFI=1; RMSEA=0), with reliability α=0.93.

      El apoyo social es definido como la disponibilidad de personas en las que se puede confiar, que le hacen saber a un individuo que es valorado y amado. El objetivo del estudio fue elaborar una escala para evaluar el apoyo social en personas adultas mexicanas. En una primera fase, 200 adultos (M edad =25, DE =8.93) respondieron redes semánticas para obtener el significado del apoyo social. En una segunda fase, resultado de las redes semánticas y con los supuestos teóricos sobre apoyo social, se elaboró una escala Likert con 6 opciones de respuesta. Colaboraron 350 participantes (M edad =33, DE =9.38). En ambas fases la muestra se integró por residentes de la Ciudad de México y área metropolitana. Resultado de los análisis psicométricos realizados (sesgo, correlación ítem total, t de Student para grupos extremos, análisis factorial de componentes principales con rotación oblicua y alpha de Cronbach), la escala quedó integrada por 26 reactivos distribuidos en 4 factores: emocional (α=0.90), compañerismo (α=0.75), validación (α=0.82) y práctico/instrumental (α=0.80). La varianza explicada fue del 56.33%, con un índice de fiabilidad global de 0.937. Se obtuvo una escala válida, confiable y culturalmente relevante para evaluar el apoyo social en población mexicana. Social support is defined as the availability of people on whom someone can rely on, people who let an individual know that he is valued and loved. The aim of this research was to elaborate a scale to assess the social support in adult Mexican people. In the first stage 200 adults (M age =25, SD =8.93) answered and instrument using the technique of the natural semantic networks to obtain the psychological meaning of social support. In a second stage, using the results from the first one, a Likert instrument with six answer options was elaborated. In that part 350 participants collaborated (M age =33, SD =9.38). In both stages the samples were integrated by Mexico City and Metropolitan Area residents. Result of the psychometric analysis performed (skew, item-total correlation, Student t test for extreme groups, factorial analysis by principal components with oblique rotation and Cronbach's alpha), the scale became integrated for 26 items distributed in 4 factors: emotional (α=.90), fellowship (α=.75), validation (α=.82) and practical/instrumental (α=.80). The explained variance was of 56.33% with a global reliability index of .937. It was obtained a valid and reliable scale, culturally relevant to assess the social support in Mexican population.

      Mathematics competencies are critical in the development of the individual. There are several variables that can predict poor performance in this competition. These variables may be related to self-learner and teacher who instructs. Objective Analyse the risk of poor performance depending on several variables: attending early childhood education, learning strategies and strategies used by the teacher uses. Method No experimental or ex post facto. Data We used the database PISA 2012 for Spain provided by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport. The generated data sample consists of 25,313 young Spaniards of both sexes, aged 15 years, belonging to 902 schools that are distributed throughout the national territory of Spain. Dependent or endogenous variable Performance in mathematics. Independent or exogenous variables Different variables were considered: attendance and duration of Early Childhood Education, student learning strategies and teaching strategies. Analysis of data Binary logistic regression. Results It shows that the factor that has greater predictive capability of risk of underperformance is attending Early Childhood Education [β =−.595; ρ <.001]. It is the variable that has more predictive capability of risk of all analysed. Discussion There are variables that increase the risk and others that reduce this risk. It is possible to prevent low performance in Mathematics competencies, for example, we need to pursue a teaching of quality Early Childhood Education knowing their long-term benefits and not only ensure access to it for all children.

      El objetivo del estudio fue generar un instrumento confiable y válido que permita evaluar la percepción del riesgo de deslave en habitantes de asentamientos urbanos vulnerables a riesgos geológicos en la ciudad de México. Se construyó una escala conformada por 9 reactivos con 5 opciones de respuesta; para obtener las propiedades psicométricas óptimas se aplicó a 217 habitantes de entre 18 y 86años de edad, 126 mujeres y 91 hombres. El análisis de la estructura factorial y la confiabilidad proporcionan una escala final constituida por 6 reactivos organizados en 2 factores, con apropiados índices de bondad de ajuste. Se concluye que la Escala de Percepción de Riesgo de Deslave proporciona información relevante para la toma de decisiones ante fenómenos naturales extremos en la ciudad de México. The main objective of this study was to develop a valid and reliable scale that assessed the risk perception in urban settlements vulnerable to geological hazards in Mexico City. The scale included 9 items with 5 optional answers. In order to obtain optimum psychometric properties, the scale was applied to 217 inhabitants between the ages of 18 and 86, from which 126 were women and 91 men. The analysis of factorial structure and the reliability provide a final scale made up from 6 items organized in 2 factors with satisfactory goodness of fit (df=8; χ2 =14.138; P =.078; CFI=.990; RMSEA=.060). It is concluded that the Scale of Landslide Risk Perception provides relevant information for decision-making to extreme natural phenomena in Mexico City.
