  • EJIHPE, Vol. 9, Pages 39-49: Academic performance, perceived social
           support and emotional intelligence at the university

    • Authors: Oihane Fernández-Lasarte
      Pages: 39 - 49
      Abstract: Perceived social support contributes to the students´ development and academic performance. Likewise, previous research suggests a positive relationship and influence of emotional intelligence on academic performance. Thus, the purpose of this study is twofold: a) to examine the relationship between perceived social support, emotional intelligence, and academic performance; and b) to analyze the predictive capacity of perceived social support on emotional intelligence and both variables on academic performance. A total of 419 students from the University of the Basque Country participate in this study, with ages between 18 and 40 years (M=20.45; SD=3.31), 27% boys and 73% girls. The following scales are used: Perceived Social Support Scale (AFA), Teacher and Classmate Support Scale (TCMS), Trait Meta Mood Scale (TMMS-24), and Brief School Adjustment Scale (EBAE-10). Correlational and multiple regression analyzes are applied. The results show the highest associations between teacher support and academic performance, family support with emotional repair, and academic performance with emotional repair. Worth noting is the explanatory capacity of the teacher support on academic performance, family support on emotional clarity and emotional repair, and emotional repair on academic performance.

  • EJIHPE, Vol. 9, Pages 51-58: Family communication patterns, school and

    • Authors: Celeste León-Moreno
      Pages: 51 - 58
      Abstract: During adolescence, family and school contexts play a fundamental role in the psychosocial adjustment of individuals. Previous research shows that the existence of family communication problems is one of the family factors for violent behaviour in adolescents. In the school context, several factors have also been identified that can negatively influence an adolescent's psychosocial adjustment, such as school self-concept. This study aims to explore the role of family communication and family and school self-concept in the revenge motivations of adolescents. The sample includes 671 adolescents of both sexes, between 10 and 16 years old, (49.3% boys, M=13.04; SD=1.80), attending primary and secondary school. The structural equation model, calculated with EQS software. The results obtained show that open family communication is directly and indirectly related to revenge motivations, through school and family self-concept. Finally, results are discussed and its possible implications as well

           Conflict within the Same Organization. The Role of Organizational Identity

    • Authors: Samuel Fernández-Salinero, Gabriela Topa
      First page: 1
      Abstract: The main purpose of this research is to shed light upon how perception of intergroup discrimination is related to perception of organizational conflict. This phenomenon is mediated by group identification and moderated by organizational identification. The sample was constituted by 466 employees belonging to the staff of Administration and Service of a Spanish public University. Main research results show that perceived discrimination has a direct effect on organizational conflict through group identification. The relationship between perceived discrimination and group identification is moderated by organizational identification.

  • EJIHPE, Vol. 10, Pages 10-17: Educational Attainment Better Reduces
           Disability for Non-Hispanic than Hispanic Americans

    • Authors: Shervin Assari, Mohsen Bazargan
      First page: 10
      Abstract: Objectives: Minorities’ Diminished Returns (MDRs) refers to the weaker protective health effects of socioeconomic status (SES) for minorities, particularly educational attainment for racial and ethnic minorities, compared to the general population. This pattern has been documented among African-Americans compared to Whites, however, we know very little about MDRs for educational attainment on disability among Hispanics compared to Non-Hispanic Whites. Aims: This cross-sectional study explored ethnic variation in the effects of educational attainment on severity of disability in the United States of America (USA). Materials and Methods: The 2015 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) was a national survey of the general population in the USA. The total sample was 1021 American adults that reported some disability. Of the 1021 participants, 855 identified as Non-Hispanic and 165 identified as Hispanic. The independent variable was educational attainment. The main outcome was severity of disability measured using self-reported data. Age, gender, and race were covariates. Ethnicity was the effect modifier. Results: Among individuals with a disability, higher levels of educational attainment were associated with fewer disabilities, independent of all confounders. When ethnicity and educational attainment were interacted on severity of disability, the results indicated a smaller protective effect for Hispanics than for Non-Hispanics with a disability. Ethnicity-stratified models showed an effect for Non-Hispanics but not for Hispanics. Conclusions: The protective effects of educational attainment against severity of disability are smaller for Hispanics than for Non-Hispanics. To prevent health disparities, there is a need to minimize MDRs of SES for ethnic minorities. To do so, there is a need for innovative economic, public, and social policies that are not limited to equalizing educational attainment but that also help minorities leverage their resources and gain tangible outcomes.

  • EJIHPE, Vol. 10, Pages 18-29: Authentic Leadership and Creativity:
           Moderated Meditation Model of Resilience and Hope in the Health Sector

    • Authors: Aizza Anwar, Ghulam Abid, Ali Waqas
      First page: 18
      Abstract: Authentic leaders are recognized as self-aware individuals who act according to their values and beliefs in the organization. Most of the studies have acknowledged the positive impact of authentic leaders on followers. However, the characteristics of an authentic leader, such as making decisions according to his/her own belief system, might negatively affect the followers. The current study aims to investigate the relationship of authenthic leadership/leaders (AL) and creativity through the mediating role of resilience. In this study, data were collected from 172 nurses working at public hospitals using a three-wave, time-lagged study design. The findings show that authentic leadership significantly predicts hope among employees. A hopeful individual positively reflects creativity in the workplace and also mediates the relationship between authentic leadership and creativity at workplace. These results report that authentic leadership impacts hope in a positive manner; thereby, increasing the level of creativity of nurses at the workplace. The study also highlights that if a resilient nurse is supervised by an authentic leader, it decreases hope and eventually creativity at work. The paper elaborates theoretical and practical implications for the health care sector along with limitations and direction for future research.

  • EJIHPE, Vol. 10, Pages 30-43: Adoption of a Serious Game in the Developing
           of Emotional Intelligence Skills

    • Authors: Fernando Almeida
      First page: 30
      Abstract: Emotional intelligence is intrinsically associated with the ability to understand, manage, and express feelings and deal with other people’s emotions. This competence is essential for the formation, development, and maintenance of personal and professional relationships. Furthermore, emotional intelligence can be extensively worked out and developed over time, which allows each individual to become a better professional. Nevertheless, the perception that higher education students have about the importance of emotional intelligence remains residual and there are few contexts that allow them to develop emotional intelligence skills. In this sense, this study proposes the use of a serious game to assess and develop emotional intelligence skills in the context of an entrepreneurship discipline attended by multidisciplinary students from the courses of management and computer engineering. The performance of students is measured and discussed considering a mixed methods approach. The findings indicate the existence of a correlation between the player’s emotional intelligence skills and his performance in the game, and this occurrence is common to students regardless of their course, gender, age, and number of years of professional experience. The study also explores the importance of emotional intelligence considering the distinct profile of students.

  • EJIHPE, Vol. 10, Pages 44-58: Improving Employee Performance in Industrial
           Parks: An Empirical Case of Garment Enterprises in Binh Duong Province,

    • Authors: Thanh-Lam Nguyen, Pham Xuan Giang
      First page: 44
      Abstract: In responding to the current international integration and fierce competition on marketplace, over the last few decades, most businesses have tried to continuously improve their performance for better competitiveness. One of the preferred approaches is to enhance their employee performance; thus, fully capturing its determinants is critical. Thus, this study aimed at identifying key factors affecting employee performance so that businesses can create proper policies and actions to improve their overall performance. Specifically, as a common phenomenon, most employees working in industrial parks not only live far away from their workplaces as well as work a lot of overtime. These issues were carefully considered in this study to investigate their impacts on the employee satisfaction and performance. In the empirical case of garment enterprises in Binh Duong industrial parks, it was found that job satisfaction and employee performance are positively affected by eight factors: (1) reward and recognition; (2) development and training; (3) job promotion; (4) income; (5) work environment; (6) relationship with superiors; (7) relationship with colleagues; and (8) work procedure and role. In addition, it was found to be negatively affected by the house–work distance and overtime work, which are two new factors proposed in this study.

  • EJIHPE, Vol. 10, Pages 59-69: Validation of the Persian Translation of the
           Children’s Test Anxiety Scale: A Multidimensional Rasch Model Analysis

    • Authors: Roya Shoahosseini, Purya Baghaei
      First page: 59
      Abstract: In this study, we examine the psychometric properties of the Persian translation of the Children’s Test Anxiety Scale (CTAS) using the Rasch rating scale model. In the first step, rating scale diagnostics revealed that the thresholds were disordered. To remedy this problem, two categories were collapsed and a rating scale structure with three points turned out to have optimal properties. Principal component analysis (PCA) of standardized residuals showed that the scale is not unidimensional. Since the scale is designed to measure three distinct dimensions of test anxiety we fitted a correlated three-dimensional Rasch model. A likelihood ratio test showed that the three-dimensional model fits significantly better than a unidimensional model. Principal component analysis of standardized residuals indicated that three subscales are unidimensional. Infit and outfit statistics indicated that one item misfitted the model in all the analyses. Medium correlations between the dimensions was evidence of the distinctness of the subscales and justifiability of the multidimensional structure for the scale. Criterion-related evidence was provided by correlating the scale with the Spence Children’s Anxiety Scale (SCAS). The patterns of correlations provided evidence of convergent-discriminant validity. Findings suggest that a three-dimensional instrument with a 3-point Likert scale works best in the Persian language.

  • EJIHPE, Vol. 10, Pages 70-81: Health and Sport. Economic and Social Impact
           of Active Tourism

    • Authors: Araújo Vila, Fraiz Brea, de Araújo
      First page: 70
      Abstract: Concerns with health and wellness are currently a global trend. Consequently, people have increasingly been engaging in some form of regular sports practice in their adult lives. This is evidenced by the rise of markets that are related to the sports sector. One of those market trends is active tourism, which refers to the practice of physical activities in natural environments within a tourist destination. In this context, people travel to certain places, typically with friends or as couples, to engage in sports activities of greater or lesser intensities. This allows for them to disconnect with their daily routines and provides them all of the positive health-related outcomes that are associated with exercising. Therefore, health tourism is also an efficient tool against sedentariness. The present study explores which sports are currently the most popular amongst active tourists, which attributes they value the most when choosing a destination, and what is their expenditure pattern. To this end, a sample of 60 individuals who have engaged in some form of active tourism in Galicia is surveyed. The findings suggest that active tourists are particularly interested in dedicating their discretionary time to travelling and they have a higher daily expenditure within the destination than the average tourist.
