  • Altruismo y empatía en situaciones que implican costos personales

    • Abstract: : This current study aimed to investigate the influence of empathic feelings on a risky altruistic behavior of young adults. 60 undergraduate students, aged between 18 and 35 years old took part in an experiment in which they had to decide in rather to give or not raffle tickets to an unfamiliar person, after participating of a gambling game. The tickets were gained after a memory quiz. 30 participants were allocated to an experimental condition named “neutral” in which they freely took their distributive decisions, and the other 30 were allocated to an “emotional” condition, in which empathic feelings were induced, by using a video. Results indicated that the participants’ sex and the experimental manipulation influenced gambling behavior, allowing the participants to be in the “emotional condition”, more prone to altruistic behavior than the participants in the “neutral” condition. Also, the men helped more in a high-cost condition than the women did. These results point that the influence of empathic concern on altruistic behavior in a situation involving risks might be mediated by the sex and the relation between these variables should be better observed in studies on distributive behaviorResumen: El presente estudio tuvo como objetivo investigar la influencia de los sentimientos empáticos sobre el comportamiento altruista de jóvenes adultos. 60 estudiantes de 18 a 35 años de edad participaron de un experimento en el que tuvieron que decidir dar o no rifas a una persona desconocida, después de participar en un juego de azar. Los biletes se obtuvieron después de ganar un concurso de memoria. 30 participantes fueron asignados a una condición experimental denominada "neutral", en la cual tomaron libremente sus decisiones distributivas, y los otros 30 fueron asignados a una condición "emocional", durante la cual se indujeron sentimientos empáticos, utilizando un video. Los resultados indicaron que el sexo de los participantes y la manipulación experimental influyó en el comportamiento del juego, dejando a los participantes en la "condición emocional" más propensos al comportamiento altruista que los participantes en la condición "neutral". Además, los hombres ayudaron más en una condición de alto costo que las mujeres. Estos resultados apuntan a que la influencia de la preocupación empática sobre el comportamiento altruista en una situación que implica riesgo, podría estar mediada por el sexo y que las relaciones entre estas variables necesitan ser mejor observadas en estudios sobre el comportamiento distributivo.
  • Autoeficacia y estilos de afrontamiento al estrés en estudiantes

    • Abstract: Resumen: La presente investigación analizóla relación entre los niveles de Autoeficacia presentes en estudiantes universitarios y los Estilos de Afrontamiento al Estrés utilizados para hacer frente a demandas internas y externas. Se seleccionó una muestra de 126 estudiantes a quienes se les administró la Escala de Autoeficacia General, el Cuestionario de Estilos de Afrontamiento al Estrés y un cuestionario sociodemográfico. Los resultados indican que quienes presentan un mayor nivel de Autoeficacia utilizan los Estilos de Afrontamiento al Estrés Focalizado en la solución del problema y Reevaluación positiva. Por otro lado, quienes presentaron menor nivel de Autoeficacia recurren al estilo de afrontamiento Autofocalización negativa : The present investigation analyzed the relationship between the levels of Self efficacy that students of the bachelor´s degree on Psychology have and the Coping Styles that they use to face internal or external requests. A sample of 126 students was selected. They were given the General Self Efficacy Scale, the Coping Strategies Questionnaire and a social demographic questionnaire. The results show that those students that have more Self-efficacy use the Coping Strategy focused on solving the problem and Positive reappraisal. On the other hand, students that have lower Self-efficacy levels use the Negative self-blameway of coping with stress.

  • Construcción y validación de la escala de locus de control

    • Abstract: Resumen: El objetivo de la presente investigación fue obtener la validez de constructo y consistencia interna de la escala de locus de control materno para madres con hijos adolescentes. Colaboraron de manera voluntaria 765 madres monoparentales y biparentales de la Ciudad de México (M edad = 42 años, DT = 6.66). La muestra fue no probabilística intencional. Se realizó un análisis de componentes principales con rotación ortogonal, se obtuvieron 30 ítems y 6 factores que explicaron el 51.09% de la varianza, consistencia interna = .740. Se realizó un modelo de ecuaciones estructurales para confirmar la estructura de la escala. Los valores de los índices de ajuste fueron: chi cuadrada = 611.528, gl = 356 > .05; NFI = .900; IFI = .956; CFI = .955; RMSEA = .031 (LO 90 = .026, HI 90 = .035). Se concluye que la escala es válida y confiable para medir el locus de control materno : The objective of this investigation was to obtain construct validity and internal consistency of the maternal locus of control scale for mothers with adolescent children. 765 mothers from single-parent and biparental families in Mexico City participated voluntarily (M age = 42 years, SD = 6.66). Non-probabilistic, convenience sampling was used. An orthogonal rotation principal component analysis was performed. 30 items and 6 factors that explained 51.09% of the variance (internal consistency = .740) were obtained. Structural equation modeling was performed to confirm structure. The index of adjustment values were: chi square = 611.528, df = 356 > .05; NFI = .900; IFI = .956; CFI = .955; RMSEA = .031 (LO 90 = .026, HI 90 = .035). The scale proved to be valid and reliable to measure the maternal locus of control

  • Espiritualidad y personalidad en el marco de los Big Five

    • Abstract: Resumen: El objetivo de este trabajo ha sido evaluar en nuestro contexto, si la espiritualidad emerge como un factor diferente dentro del modelo de los Big Five. A partir de un muestreo no probabilístico, participaron 186 sujetos de entre 18 y 28 años, de la ciudad de Paraná, Entre Ríos, Argentina. Los resultados obtenidos a partir de dos análisis factoriales muestran que los aspectos vinculados a la espiritualidad y la religiosidad, con excepción de la sub dimensión conexión, conformaron un factor independiente y no redundante con el modelo de los Big Five. Estos hallazgos permiten evaluar el rol de la espiritualidad y religiosidad dentro de una teoría de la personalidad que incluyendo este importante aspecto brinde una mirada más holística en la comprensión de las diferencias individuales en torno a la personalidad humana : The present study aimed at assessing, in our context, whether the previously mentioned constructs emerge as a distinct factor within the model of the Big Five. The study used a non-probabilistic, intentional sample composed of 186 subjects between the ages of 18 and 28 years old from the city of Parana, Entre Rios, Argentina. Two exploratory factor analysis were performed. The results show that those aspects related to spirituality and religiousness - except for the sub-dimension connectedness - constituted an independent and non-redundant factor with the model of the Big Five. These findings, in line with other studies, enable to assess the role of spirituality and religiousness within a theory of personality, and thus provide a more holistic understanding of individual differences in human personality
  • Asesoramiento en la perspectiva de profesionales de la atención
           primaria de salud:

    • Abstract: Resumo: O estudo objetiva conhecer e analisar como o aconselhamento em HIV/Aids vem sendo desenvolvido na descentralização do teste rápido de HIV e outras Infecções Sexualmente Transmissíveis (IST) para a atenção básica. Trata-se de estudo qualitativo exploratório, realizado em 15 unidades de saúde de Porto Alegre/Brasil, através de entrevistas com 22 profissionais. Os dados foram submetidos à análise temática e discutidos sob a perspectiva do trabalho vivo em saúde de Merhy. Organizou-se dois eixos temáticos: (1) Descentralização da testagem na atenção básica; (2) Aconselhamento - elementos e desafios. Os resultados apontados foram: a atividade não se apresenta de forma transversal na equipe, com prática centralizada nos enfermeiros; maior domínio na execução do teste (tecnologia dura) e na abordagem informativa (tecnologia leve-dura); insegurança em relação à gestão de riscos e ao suporte emocional (tecnologias leves), principalmente diante do diagnóstico positivo. Um dos principais desafios para a eficácia do aconselhamento é a adequação da abordagem as necessidades do usuárioResumen: El estudio tiene como objetivo conocer y analizar cómo el asesoramiento en VIH / SIDA está desarrollandose en la descentralización de la prueba rápida para VIH y otras enfermidades de transmisión sexual para la atención básica. Se trata de un estudio cualitativo exploratório, realizado en 15 unidades de salud de Porto Alegre/Brasil, a través de entrevistas con 22 profesionales. Los datos fueron sometidos al análisis temático y discutidos bajo la perspectiva del trabajo vivo en salud de Merhy. Se organizaron en dos temas principales: (1) La descentralización de las pruebas en la atención primaria; (2) Asesoramiento - elementos y desafíos. Los resultados señalados fueron: la actividad no se presenta de forma transversal en el equipo, con práctica centralizada en los enfermeros; mayor dominio en la ejecución de la prueba (tecnología dura) y en el enfoque informativo (tecnología ligera); inseguridad en relación a la gestión de riesgos y al soporte emocional (tecnologías ligeras), principalmente ante el diagnóstico positivo. Uno de los principales desafíos para la eficacia del asesoramiento es la adecuación del enfoque según la necesidad del usuario : This articles aims to investigate and analyze how rapid test and counselling for HIV were developed and assessed in decentralization process to primary care services. It is a qualitative and exploratory study, which was performed in 15 health services of Porto Alegre/Brasil, through semi-structured interviews with 22 professionals. Data were conducted to thematic analysis and discussed from theoretical perspective of “living work” in health by Merhy. Results were organized in two thematic axes: (1) Decentralization of testing in Primary Health Care; and (2) Counselling - topics and challenges. Results indicate: the activity is not presented transversally in the team, centralized in the nurses; greater domain in the execution of the test (hard technology) and informative approach (light-hard technology); insecurity regarding risk management and emotional support (light technologies), especially facing the positive diagnosis. One of the main challenges for the effectiveness of counseling is the appropriateness of the approach according to user's necessity
  • Sistema de Tareas Diagnósticas y la habilidad lectora

    • Abstract: Resumen: La presente investigación tiene como objetivo determinar la relación entre el Sistema de Tareas Diagnósticas (STD) y la lectura en una muestra de niños cubanos en el 1º y 2º grado. Se aplicaron tres procedimientos: (1) correlaciones entre el STD y la lectura, (2) ANOVA de la Regresión y (3) Regresión jerárquica. Las correlaciones indicaron que las 17 tareas tienen una significativa correlación con la lectura en los dos grados escolares. Sin embargo, el ANOVA de regresión mostró cuatro tareas cognitivas: Análisis fónico, Ordenamiento de láminas, Solución de matrices y Relaciones cuantitativas. En el 2do grado, se destacaron tres tareas: Ordenamiento de láminas, Coordinación viso - motora y Solución de problemas. En el 1er grado, la Regresión jerárquica indicó la importancia de Análisis fónico y el Ordenamiento de láminas por encima de las demás. En el 2do grado, indicó Ordenamiento de láminas y la Coordinación viso - motora. En resumen, las habilidades fonológicas y el razonamiento son procesos básicos que subyacen en la adquisición de la lectura en los primeros grados escolares : The objective of this research is to determine the relationship between the System of Diagnostic Tasks (SDT) and the reading in a sample of Cuban children in the 1st and 2nd. Three procedures were applied: (1) correlations between the SDT and the reading, (2) ANOVA of the Regression and (3) Hierarchical regression. The correlations indicated that the 17 tasks have a significant correlation with the reading in the two school grades. However, the regression ANOVA showed four cognitive tasks: Phonic analysis, Sheet ordering, Matrix solution and Quantitative relationships. In the 2nd grade, three tasks were highlighted: sheet ordering, visuo - motor coordination and problem solving. In the 1st grade, the hierarchical regression indicated the importance of phonic analysis and the ordering of plates above the others. In the 2nd grade, he indicated sheet ordering and visuo - motor coordination.

  • Cuidado sensible y seguridad del apego en preescolares

    • Abstract: Resumen: Este estudio se fundamentó en la hipótesis de sensibilidad de la teoría del apego que relaciona la crianza sensible con la seguridad del apego. Tuvo como objetivo analizar la relación entre la sensibilidad de 16 figuras cuidadoras y la seguridad del apego de sus hijos preescolares de desarrollo típico, residentes en Quito, Ecuador. Para la medición se utilizaron dos instrumentos: Maternal Behavior for Preschooler Q-set y Attachment Behavior Q-set Version 3.0, en su adaptación latinoamericana. En comparación con otros estudios con población latina, en este trabajo se encontró un nivel de sensibilidad similar al previamente reportado y un nivel de seguridad ligeramente más alto. En cuanto a la relación entre ambas variables, se halló a la sensibilidad como predictora de la seguridad del apego. Al ser Ecuador un país pluricultural, se recomienda replicar este estudio en grupos de otros contextos culturales y con otras condiciones de desarrollo : This study was based on sensitivity hypothesis of attachment theory that relates sensitive nurture with attachment security. The aim was to analyze the relation between 16 caregivers’ sensitivity and attachment security of their preschool children of typical development, living in Quito, Ecuador. Two instruments were used for assessment: Maternal Behavior for Preschoolers Q-set and Attachment Behavior Q-set Version 3.0, in their Latin American adaptation. Compared to others studies with Latino population, in this work a level of sensitivity similar to the previously reported, and a slightly higher level of children security was found. Regarding the relation between both variables, sensitivity was found as a predictor of attachment security. Since Ecuador is a multicultural country, is recommended to replicate this study in other cultural contexts and with other development conditions groups
  • Proyectos de vida de adolescentes en medida socioeducativa de

    • Abstract: Resumo: O objetivo desta pesquisa é caracterizar projetos de vida de adolescentes privados de liberdade devido ao cometimento de atos infracionais. Trata-se de um estudo de múltiplos casos conduzido por meio de quatro grupos focais. Participaram dos grupos 25 adolescentes, entre 15 e 19 anos, internos em unidades socioeducativas nas regiões metropolitanas do Espírito Santo e Rio Grande do Sul, Brasil. Os dados foram tratados a partir da análise temática, utilizando-se procedimentos sistemáticos para a diferenciação dos casos. Verificaram-se duas formas de conceber o futuro entre os participantes: 1) a partir de projetos de vida vinculados à criminalidade, que incluíam um sentido de ação claro para o futuro; e 2) a partir de aspirações de futuro relacionadas à educação, família e trabalho, mas sem um sentido de ação por meio do qual se intentava atingir tais aspirações. Os resultados sugerem a infetividade do sistema socioeducativo em promover projetos de vida saudáveis.Resumen: El objetivo de esta investigación es caracterizar proyectos de vida de adolescentes privados de libertad debido a la comisión de actos de infracción.

It is a multiple case study conducted through four focus groups, which had twenty-five adolescents as participants. The adolescents were aged between 15 and 19 years old and were confined in juvenile detention centers in the Metropolitan Regions of Espírito Santo and Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. Data were treated by thematic analysis and systematic procedures were used for differentiating the cases. There were two ways of conceiving future among participants: 1) with life projects associated to crime, which included a clear sense of action for the future; and 2) with future aspirations related to education, family, and work, but without a sense of action by which one attempted to achieve such aspirations. The results suggest that the social educative system is infective in promoting healthy life projects
  • Construcción de un inventario de inteligencia emocional percibida
           para adultos

    • Abstract: Resumen: Mayer y Salovey (1997) definen la inteligencia emocional como una habilidad para percibir y expresar emociones; para acceder y/o generar sentimientos; para comprender las emociones; y para regularlas. Si bien, desde este enfoque, se han construido distintas pruebas para evaluar inteligencia emocional, las mismas presentan una serie de limitaciones, tanto desde el plano conceptual, como a nivel de su validez y fiabilidad. Se presenta la construcción y validación de un instrumento para evaluar Inteligencia Emocional Percibida en adultos de Buenos Aires, Argentina. Este proceso comprendió: a) definición conceptual y operacional del constructo, b) elaboración y análisis de los ítems, c) aplicación a una muestra de 356 participantes adultos de Buenos Aires, d) estudio de las propiedades psicométricas del inventario. Se obtuvieron evidencias favorables en torno a la validez de contenido, discriminación de los ítems, validez factorial y consistencia interna del inventario, aportando así una herramienta valiosa, tanto para actividades de investigación como de intervención y prevención : Mayer and Salovey (1997) define emotional intelligence as an ability to perceive and express emotions; to access and/or generate feelings; to understand the emotions; and to regulate emotional phenomena. Although following this approach, different tests were designed to evaluate emotional intelligence, limitations both from the conceptual and methodological level still continue. The design and validation of a new instrument to assess Perceived Emotional Intelligence is presented for evaluating adult population of Buenos Aires, Argentina. This process included: a) conceptual and operational construct definition, b) preparation and analysis of items, c) application to a sample of 356 adult participants residing in Buenos Aires, d) study of psychometric properties. Favorable evidence for the validity of content, item discrimination, factorial validity and internal consistency of inventory were obtained. It constitutes a valuable tool, both for research activities, regarding intervention and prevention

           vida adulta

    • Abstract: Resumo: Este estudo visa examinar as influências dos traumas infantis nos sintomas psicopatológicos na vida adulta. A amostra foi constituída por 201 pacientes que estavam iniciando psicoterapia psicanalítica em uma clínica de vinculada a um instituto de formação. Os participantes responderam dois instrumentos de autorrelato que avaliaram, respectivamente, a presença e frequência de diferentes traumas na infância, e a intensidade da sintomatologia atual, considerando uma ampla variedade de síndromes psicopatológicas. Os resultados apontam que a maioria dos pacientes foram expostos a adversidades na infância e que diversos traumas passados apresentam associação positiva significativa com várias dimensões de sintomas atuais. Também foi constatado que o índice de trauma total prediz o nível de sofrimento psicológico derivado dos sintomas. Os achados corroboram a literatura que afirma as consequências psicológicas adversas do trauma infantil na saúde mental do adultoResumen: Este estudio examina las influencias de traumas infantiles en los síntomas psicopatológicos en la vida adulta. La muestra fue constituida por 201 pacientes que estaban iniciando psicoterapia psicoanalítica en una clínica vinculada a un instituto de formación. Los participantes respondieron dos Instrumentos de auto relato, que evaluaban respectivamente, la presencia y frecuencia de distintos traumas en la infancia, y la intensidad de la sintomatología actual, considerando una amplia variedad de síndromes psicopatológicos. Los resultados muestran que la mayoría de los pacientes fueron expuestos a adversidades en la infancia, y que diversos traumas presentan asociación positiva y significativa con distintas dimensiones de síntomas. También fue constatado que el índice de trauma total predice el nivel de sufrimiento psicológico derivado a los síntomas. Los hallazgos corroboran la bibliografía que señala las consecuencias psicológicas adversas del trauma infantil en la salud mental del adulto : The study aims to examine the influence of childhood trauma on adult psychopathological symptoms. The sample consisted of 201 patients who were initiating psychoanalytical psychotherapy in a clinic from a training institute. Participants answered two self-report instruments that assessed respectively, the presence and frequency of different traumas in childhood, as well as the intensity of current symptomatology, considering a wide variety of psychopathological syndromes. The results indicate that most of the patients were exposed to childhood adversities and that various types of past traumas have a significant positive association with many dimensions of current symptoms. It was also found that the total trauma index predict levels of symptom-derived psychological distress. The findings corroborate the literature indicating the adverse psychological consequences of childhood trauma on adult mental health
  • Algunos enlaces conceptuales entre psicopatología del desarrollo,
           personalidad y evaluación psicológica infantojuvenil

    • Abstract: Resumen: objetivos: 1) analizar conceptos sobre psicopatología infantojuvenil que permitan abordar la normalidad/anormalidad del comportamiento. Se deslindan conceptos de temperamento, carácter y personalidad. 2) considerar donde situar los trastornos que se detectan en el área emocional en la infancia. Se discute si corresponde hacerlo bajo el concepto de personalidad. Se desarrollan teorías de las que han derivado pruebas de evaluación de la personalidad en niños y adolescentes. Se concluye que no hay datos empíricos suficientes que permitan aseverar la estabilidad del temperamento; sería prudente conceptualizar la personalidad como estructura a partir de la adolescencia; en la infancia sería factible enunciarla solo en torno a dimensiones. La comunicación supone una reflexión crítica de conceptos de psicopatología del desarrollo, trastornos emocionales de inicio en la infancia y su vinculación con el concepto de personalidad que se presentan dispersos en la literatura y que sirven de respaldo a la evaluación psicológica : objectives: 1) to analyze concepts on child and adolescent psychopathology that allow to address the normality / abnormality of behavior. Concepts of temperament, character and personality are defined. 2) We consider where to place the disorders that are detected in the emotional area in childhood. It is debated if it corresponds to do this under the concept of personality. Theories are developed from which have derived personality assessment tests in children and adolescents. It is concluded that there is not sufficient empirical data to assert the stability of the temperament; it would be prudent to conceptualize personality as a structure starting from adolescence; in childhood it would be feasible to enunciate it only around dimensions. The communication supposes a critical reflection of concepts of psychopathology of development, emotional disorders of the beginning of childhood and their connection with the concept of personality that appear scattered in the literature and that serve as backup to the psychological assessment.
