  • An Investigation into Cyberloafing and Its Associations with Work and
           Non-Work Factors

    • Abstract: Cyberloafing, engaging in non-work-related online activities during work hours, has attracted increasing attention due to its potential to disrupt productivity and organizational functioning. Drawing upon contemporary research, we delve into the underlying mechanisms of cyberloafing. This study examines how cyberloafing behavior is related to work-related factors, including the position in the organization, boredom at work, pay satisfaction, and the non-work factors, such as loneliness and social network addiction. Furthermore, we investigate the role of two demographic variables: marital status and gender. We collected data from 174 white-collar employees working in various private-sector institutions in Sakarya (Türkiye). The findings showed that only two work-related variables, boredom at work and salary satisfaction, are significantly associated with cyberloafing. Gender and marital status were weakly related to cyberloafing. The paper also discusses possible solutions and practical implications for organizations seeking to mitigate the adverse effects of cyberloafing. The paper concluded with suggestions for future research and acknowledged the limitations of this study.

  • Effects of Cognitive Behavioral Group Therapy on Reduction of Anxious
           Thoughts among Selected High School Students in Iran: A Case Study

    • Abstract: Cognitive behavioral group therapy (CBT) helps reduce individuals’ anxious thoughts. Considering this, the present study aimed to determine the level of anxious thoughts among selected Iranian high school students and to explore whether cognitive behavioral group therapy curtails anxious thoughts among Iranian high school students. To do so, a one-group pretest-posttest design was adopted (quantitative design) in this research, to measure the effectiveness of anxious thoughts-reduction policies to reduce anxiety among Iranian high school students. To address the research objectives, 20 teenagers who were students at some schools in Mashhad, Iran, participated in this study after taking the Anxious Thoughts Inventory (AnTI) designed by Wells (1994). The analysis of the data obtained from implementing the questionnaires was performed through SPSS 25 software in two sections: descriptive and inferential (Paired sample t-test). The results revealed that the means score of the students at the beginning of the experiment in the pretest at Anxious Thoughts Inventory was 63 which was a sever level of anxious thoughts at the pretest.  The item “I worry about my appearance” remained on top both in the pretest and posttest. A paired t-test was used and showed that there was a significant difference in the pretest and posttest scores of anxious thoughts of the participants after using the cognitive behavioral group therapy. Therefore, it can be concluded that cognitive behavioral group therapy curtails anxious thoughts effectively.

  • The Lived Experience of Seeking Pregnancy in a Woman with a History of
           Cancer

    • Abstract: Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are a rare form of cancer that affects the bone marrow's ability to produce mature blood cells. Several treatments are available, including chemotherapy using anticancer or cytotoxic drugs, blood or platelet transfusions, and stem cell transplants. In this study, a 33-year-old woman shares her experience of attempting to conceive while undergoing treatment for myelodysplastic syndromes. The study aimed to explore the psychosocial difficulties women with a history of cancer treatment may encounter when trying to get pregnant. Semi-structured qualitative interviews were undertaken, recorded, and transcribed verbatim. The transcript was analyzed by narrative analysis. Four themes were identified: 1) Support from loved ones, 2) Challenges in conceiving, 3) Emotional ups and downs during pregnancy, and 4) The joy of motherhood. A cancer diagnosis can devastate young women, primarily if the treatment affects their fertility. These women must have the support of their husbands. Fortunately, many methods are available to assist women in successfully conceiving, although the journey can be difficult and emotional. The ups and downs of the process are inevitable, but the desire to become a mother makes it all worth it in the end. Cancer treatment for myelodysplastic syndromes and related conditions can profoundly impact childbearing women. Such women may face significant challenges if they plan to have a child after treatment. Hence, further research with more women with the diagnosis of MDS is imperative in this critical area.

  • Revealing the Effect of Emotional Intelligence on Organizational
           Effectiveness: Perspectives from Industrial-Organizational Psychology

    • Abstract: The study reveals the concept of emotional intelligence and its effects on individuals and organizations within the field of Industrial-Organizational psychology. In recent years, emotional intelligence has emerged as a focal point for researchers and practitioners, recognizing its capacity to support various aspects of workplace dynamics, including performance, teamwork, leadership, and overall organizational success. The findings of this research explained the profound impacts of emotional intelligence on a range of employee behaviors and organizational interactions. Individuals with heightened emotional intelligence exhibit advanced communication skills, accurately managing their emotions and articulating themselves effectively. This proficiency extends to conflict resolution scenarios, where individuals demonstrate resilience and approach resolutions with empathy and open-mindedness, fostering enhanced collaboration, stronger interpersonal connections, and heightened group cohesion. The study adopts a triangulation methodology to examine different data sources to ensure the validity and reliability of the research outcomes. Furthermore, the research framework is rooted in Salovey and Mayer's Four-Branch Model of emotional intelligence.

  • Testing the Field Nature of Consciousness: A Pilot Test

    • Abstract: Researchers are exploring consciousness as a field permeating the world around us, rather than just a feature of human experience. If consciousness is a field, then one should be able to affect others by acting from the field of consciousness. This study used a random-assignment, double-blind design to probe effects of nine students practicing the Transcendental Meditation technique on the subjective experiences and physiological patterns of another student also practicing Transcendental Meditation. For 12 recording sessions, the group (sender) either practiced the Transcendental Meditation technique or read a textbook. When the group was meditating, the individual (receiver) reported more settled meditation experiences, and they exhibited higher alpha EEG power, a correlate of deep meditation experiences. Effect sizes for all measures were large. This was a pilot study to identify markers of field effects of consciousness. Future research could replicate these findings with a larger sample size, modify the distance between the sender and receiver, explore EEG synchrony between the senders and the receiver, called hyperscanning or collective neuroscience, and explore differential effects between friends, family, and strangers to test social influences. This design could meaningful probe the nature of consciousness.

  • Activation of the Frontal Pole Using Children’s Video Games: Support for
           Children’s Well-being

    • Abstract: Effective support intended to promote children’s well-being has gained scholarly attention worldwide. Well-being is composed of complex elements. Of these elements, the promotion of executive function, which coordinates cognitive activities, via an effective method is important. Regarding the frontal pole in the anterior part of the prefrontal cortex, scholars presume that it is involved in advanced abilities, such as metacognition, and is essential for well-being. In today’s digital society, video games are appealing to children. Thus, a possibility exists that children can achieve certain aspects of well-being, such as a sense of achievement, perseverance, and happiness, by playing video games. In this regard, evidence that video games can be used to activate the prefrontal cortex is accumulating. In light of this discussion, this study hypothesizes that playing video games may affect the frontal pole and analyzes the brain activation of the frontal pole using video games compared with a mental abacus activity. The results demonstrate that playing through an educational game called Big Brain Academy: Brain vs. Brain exhibited more activation potential than mental abacus in many points.

  • Cultural Perceptions and Awareness of Dementia Amongst the People of
           Ibiaku Issiet Community: A Qualitative Study

    • Abstract: This study investigates the perceptions and interpretations of dementia within the Ibiaku Issiet community, focusing on individuals' understanding of dementia, its symptoms, and its impact on affected individuals and their families. A qualitative approach was employed, utilizing semi-structured interviews with open-ended questions. Fifteen participants, comprising men and women aged 34 to 76, were selected from the community, with inclusion criteria limited to those who have a family member with dementia. Analysis of the data revealed various themes, including spiritual influences, punishment beliefs, limited awareness, stigmatization, spiritual beliefs, lack of accessibility to support services, frustration, helplessness, and a call for educational awareness and support initiatives. These findings highlight the importance of cultural interpretations in understanding dementia and underscore the need for increased awareness and support, particularly in communities lacking awareness. Recommendations include government intervention to provide educational programs and allocate resources for tailored support programs for caregivers within diverse cultural contexts.

  • The Relationship between Parents’ Social Comparison Orientation and
           Educational Anxiety of Preschool Children Aged 2-5 Years Old in A District
           of Jilin Province, China: the Mediating Role of Parental Educational
           Expectations

    • Abstract: Educational involution is a major concern in the field of education in China and needs to be solved urgently. In this study, we investigated the effect of parents’ social comparison orientation on educational anxiety in preschool children aged 2-5 years old. A mediation model was constructed from “social comparison orientation” to “parental educational anxiety” with “parental educational expectation” as the mediator through structural equation modeling. The results of the study found that: (1) parents’ social comparison orientation significantly and positively predicted their level of educational anxiety; (2) parental educational expectations could partially mediate the relationship between social comparison orientation and parental educational anxiety. The results of this study suggest that parents’ individual factors, such as social comparison orientation, are also important factors that can catalyze educational involution. Parents could make changes in themselves to reduce the negative effects of involution on their children.
