  • Psychometric Characteristics of the Iranian Version of the Motives for
           Online Gaming Questionnaire (I-MOGQ)

    • Authors: Behnaz Dowran, Fatemeh Forouzesh Yekta, Elham Aghaie
      Pages: 1 - 7
      Abstract: Objective: The growing popularity of computer games has attracted the attention of researchers in this field. The underlying psychological motives of gamers are important to prevention of disorders related to online gaming. This study was aimed at evaluating the psychometric characteristics of the Iranian version of the Motives for Online Gaming Questionnaire (I-MOGQ) and its association with Internet Gaming Disorders (IGD). Method: Four hundred and fifty-two Iranian adult gamers (mean age = 21.5 years, SD = 4.14) voluntarily responded to the anonymous survey online. All participants in this study were males. The questionnaires used in this study were MOGQ and IGD Scale. We performed confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) for MOGQ. Also, the correlation between MOGQ and IGD was evaluated. Results: CFA supports the construct validity of the questionnaire (RMSEA < 0.08). Cronbach's alpha, as an indicator of internal consistency of the questionnaire, was 0.91 (Social = 0.85, Escape = 0.84, Competition = 0.83, Coping = 0.79, Skill Development = 0.89, Fantasy = 0.85 and Recreation = 0.83). Also, the scale displayed adequate convergent validity, as shown by significant positive correlations with IGD scores. The highest correlation was found with the Escape motive (0.57) and the lowest was found with Recreation (0.15). Conclusion: This study showed that the Iranian version of the MOGQ is a valid and reliable scale for identifying the motives for online gaming among young adults.

  • Happiness and Internet Addiction among High School Girls in Iran: A
           Single-Center Experience

    • Authors: Aida Rastegarian, Amir Bazrafshan, Pedram Keshavarz
      Pages: 1 - 7
      Abstract: Objective: Happiness is an essential component in measuring quality of life. Today, rapid internet use proliferation has led to adverse effects on this behavior of individuals and family structures. Method: The statistical population consisted of 500 high school girls aged between 15 and 18 studying in 10th, 11th, and 12th grades at Shiraz, Iran, from February 2018 to March 2019. The data were collected using the Oxford Happiness Questionnaire (OHQ) and the Young’s Internet Addiction Test (IAT). The test and the questionnaire were translated into Persian. The validity and reliability were approved by earlier studies in Iran. Five hundred high school students participated in the study. Results: The mean age of the participants was 16.7 ± 0.97 years, and their grade point average (GPA) was 18.41 ± 7.92. Among the 500 participants, 55% (275) of fathers and 65.8% (329) of mothers had parents with a diploma degree, and 162 (32.4%) were affected by Internet Addiction (IA). The univariate analysis showed that participants' education field, parents' educational status, each parent's vocational status, participants' GPA, and their duration of Internet usage correlated with the IA (P ≤ 0.2). Furthermore, multiple logistic analyses showed that mothers’ education (P < 0.055) and participants’ minutes of Internet usage (P < 0.001) correlated with IA. Conclusion: There is a negative correlation between happiness score and internet addiction among high school female students in Shiraz, Iran.

  • Reducing Maternal Stress in Pediatric Hospitalization during the COVID-19
           Pandemic by Improving Family-Centered Care with Bedside Telehealth: A
           Pilot Randomized Clinical Trial

    • Authors: Sajjad Khaksar, Maryam Maroufi, Faramarz Kalhor
      Pages: 1 - 8
      Abstract: Objective: Stress and anxiety in the mother as one of the most important members of the child's health can delay recovery and prolong hospitalization of the child. However, families feel very anxious or stressed because of the limitations imposed by COVID-19; therefore, it is important for physicians and nurses who work with children and families to recognize and reduce family stress. This study aimed to investigate the effect of implementing an educational-supportive program on improving family-centered care with bedside telehealth. Method: In this clinical trial, 40 parents with hospitalized children were selected and randomly assigned to control and intervention groups. The intervention group received a supportive training program, including teaching parental roles and supportive methods for the child and mother during the illness, while nurse counseling and support role was performed virtually as part of the intervention. After the virtual and visual implementation of the training, the father established online video communication with the child and the mother as the primary caregiver. Data collection tools were a demographic questionnaire and Stress Response Inventory (SRI) completed by the mother before and after seven days of intervention. The control group received routine care. Results: After the intervention, mothers in the intervention group showed significantly lower levels of stress than before the intervention (P < 0.05). Stress level of mothers in the control group did not demonstrate significant difference before and after the intervention (P > 0.05). Also, a comparison of mothers' stress scores post-intervention showed significant difference between the two groups (P < 0.05). Conclusion: Planning and maintaining family integrity during the COVID-19 pandemic along with educating and supporting fathers through the supportive role of spouses can reduce stress of mothers with hospitalized children.

      Pages: 1 - 6
      Abstract: Background: Patients with borderline personality disorder (BPD) often engage in high-risk sexual behaviors. In this study, we investigated the correlation of their online sexual activities and the severity of BPD symptoms. Methods: Fifty patients  with BPD who were referred to Iran psychiatric hospital and Tehran psychiatric institute in 2020, participated in this research. Borderline Evaluation of Severity over Time (BEST) questionnaire was used for the assessment of the severity of BPD symptoms, and Internet Sex Screening Test (ISST) was used to assess the online sexual behaviors. Results: There was a positive and significant correlation between the scores of the BEST questionnaire and ISST (p < 0.001). There was also a significant relationship between the mean score of the ISST and the history of substance abuse. Conclusions: Online sexual activity was associated with the severity of BPD symptoms. Hence, our results underline the importance of screening for online sexual activities in patients with BPD.
