  • COVID-19-related media consumption and parental mental health.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Currently, little is known about the relationship between COVID-19-related media consumption and mental health among Canadian parents. Consequently, the current study aimed to investigate the associations between the consumption of COVID-19-related news and mental health in a large sample of Canadian families. We recruited 924 Canadian parents, between April 14th and August 9th 2020, to participate in an online survey, which assessed their demographics, media consumption patterns, and their levels of anxiety, and depression. Relationships between COVID-19-related media consumption and parental mental health were analyzed using a series of multiple regression analyses. Multiple regression was also used to examine whether pediatric health status (i.e., chronic disease vs. no chronic disease), parent health status, and the prevalence of COVID-19 in the participant’s province of residence moderated the relationship between news consumption and parental mental health. Greater consumption of news related to COVID-19 was associated with higher levels of depression, and anxiety after controlling for a number of covariates. Contrary to predictions, neither the prevalence of COVID-19, parent health status, nor child health status significantly moderated the relationship between media consumption and parental mental health.

  • Examining the temporal associations between depression and pathological
           gaming.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In North America, pathological gaming frequently co-occurs with depression. Current literature provides mixed support for three different models of temporal precedence: The vulnerability model, scar/complication model, and reciprocal model. In the present study, we examined directional associations between pathological gaming and depression, using a short-term multiwave study design. Two hundred and eighty-nine participants from North America completed a three-wave 4-week study through Amazon Mechanical Turk. We ran two cross-lagged panel models (CLPMs) to test temporal associations between depression and both time spent gaming and gaming-related problems. The first CLPM showed evidence for reciprocal effects between depression and gaming-related problems; however, effects over time were more consistent for depression preceding gaming problems (vulnerability model). The second CLPM showed no cross-lagged associations between depression and time spent gaming. Both models were invariant across gender. The results of this study clarify depression’s unique relation to gaming-related problems, irrespective of gender. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2021 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Sociodemographic variables and illness attitudes toward COVID-19 in

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on the world. However, the real consequences to the lives of individuals are still unclear, especially regarding mental health. The present study aims to investigate whether there are any significant differences in illness attitudes (worry about illness, concern about pain, hypochondriacal beliefs, thanatophobia, and treatment experience) toward COVID-19 among Kuwaiti participants. An online survey was distributed via WhatsApp to 1,413 residents of Kuwait. The survey included the Illness Attitude Toward COVID-19 Scale (IATCS) and demographic data. During any pandemic or crisis worldwide, individuals’ mental health and illness attitude levels toward it differ depending on their sociodemographic characteristics. This study detects that females, people aged 49 years old and younger, students, and people with bachelor’s degrees reported higher scores of illness attitudes toward the COVID pandemic.

  • Unnecessary ping-pong: Illustrations of why previous findings should be
           taken into account when evaluating new data sets.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Eighteen data sets for a wide selection of research topics were used to illustrate why previous findings should be taken into account when attempting to reach a conclusion about an effect when evaluating a new data set. Traditional data analysis methods that neglect previous findings can result in high rates of incorrect or conflicting conclusions while, for the same data sets, the rates of conflicting findings for methods that incorporate previous data (updating meta-analyses or Bayesian analyses) are dramatically lower. The benefits of incorporating previous findings are particularly evident when the effect size for a phenomenon is small. It is hoped that the illustrations will assist in a shift away from the still-common tendency to neglect the incorporation of effect sizes from previous studies when evaluating new data sets.

  • Trust as a mediator of the relationship between character and perceptions
           of leader effectiveness during the COVID-19 crisis.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Character is a leadership quality that is often scrutinized yet poorly understood. Our research focuses on several questions relating to character and perceived leader effectiveness during the COVID-19 crisis. First, does the character of the prime minister matter to voters during major crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic' Second, are all dimensions that comprise the leader character framework we examined considered essential for political leadership in times of crisis' Third, is character related to perceptions of leadership effectiveness' Fourth, what role does identification-based trust play in the relationship between character and perceptions of leadership effectiveness in times of crisis' The results of our survey taken during the early weeks of the COVID-19 pandemic reveal that character is considered among Canadians of voting age as an important ingredient of political leadership. We also found that there is a significant gap between the perceived importance of the dimensions that comprise character and the belief that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau lives up to the expectations. The congruence between the perceived importance of the character dimensions and the belief that Trudeau demonstrated these dimensions predicted leadership effectiveness, and this relationship was mediated by trust. Our results are based on perceptions of leadership effectiveness; that is, we do not have objective measures of performance. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2021 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Mandatory reporting and clinician decision-making when a client discloses
           sexual interest in children.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Many individuals with sexual interest in children express a desire for mental health services but represent an underserved client population. An identified barrier to service provision is mandatory reporting legislation, which requires clinicians to report when they learn of a child who has been, or is at risk of being, sexually abused. We conducted a vignette study to examine the factors that would influence mandatory reporting decision-making when a client discloses sexual interest in children. We recruited a convenience sample of 309 Canadian registered mental health clinicians and student trainees who completed several questionnaires. Clinicians were randomized to one of nine vignettes that were crossed on two situational factors (use of child sexual exploitation material and access to children). The results of the multivariate analysis suggested that stigma towards people with sexual interest in children was associated with an increased likelihood of reporting. Clinicians were more likely to indicate that they would report the hypothetical client was viewing child sexual exploitation material and/or had access to children. These findings are discussed within the context of improving service provision to the underserved population of people with sexual interest in children.

  • Emotional impact of graphic health warnings on tobacco packages in
           Colombia.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Around the world, approximately 168 countries have used graphic health warnings (GHWs). Colombia has used such GHWs since 2009. The present study evaluated the emotional impact of GHWs that were used in Colombia from 2009 to 2017; additionally, we also assessed craving toward GHWs, since previous studies have found that some GHWs may induce positive affective states. The study included 703 participants (47.9% female; mean age = 25.43 years), classified into three age groups (adolescents, young adults, and adults) and into three smoking status groups (nonsmokers, smokers, and former smokers) and with two different educational levels (medium and high). We recorded valence, arousal, and craving responses to 33 GHWs with sizes that were similar to those that appear on cigarette packages and analyzed the effect of sex, smoking status, education level, and age. The results showed that all of the GHWs that were used in Colombia generated aversive affective states, and none of them produced craving. Nonsmoker adult women may be a population that can benefit the most by this public policy. GHWs are useful for communicating health messages to people with different levels of education. However, these GHWs produced low levels of arousal, which decreases their emotional impact. The main reason why GHWs may not increase arousal is their relatively small size, suggesting that the size of GHWs should be increased to generate a higher arousal response, especially in adolescents.

  • Mindfulness and perceptions of physical health: The mediating role of
           perceived stress.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Mindfulness, the ability to attend to present-moment thoughts and feelings in a nonjudgmental manner, is associated with a variety of positive health outcomes. In previous research, self-perceived stress mediated the relationship between mindfulness and physical health perceptions, a finding consistent with the Mindfulness Stress Buffering Account. To extend this research, we examined how five facets of mindfulness were related to self-perceived stress and self-reported physical health. We distributed an electronic survey assessing mindfulness, self-perceived stress, and self-reported physical health to 242 undergraduate students. Using regression analyses, we found that for four of five mindfulness factors, self-perceived stress mediated the relationship between mindfulness and self-reported physical health. An examination of effect sizes revealed that the nonjudging mindfulness factor had the strongest relationship with self-reported physical health. These results support the Mindfulness Stress Buffering Account, and extend previous work on the subject by considering specific facets of mindfulness.

  • Chronic PTSD and other psychological sequelae in a group of frontline
           healthcare workers who contracted and survived SARS.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) epidemic of 2003 was highly concentrated in health care settings and resulted in a high number of health care workers (HCWs) contracting the disease. The SARS epidemic has improved our understanding of how trauma impacts frontline HCWs who serve as first responders during an infectious disease outbreak. However, our insight into the trajectory of frontline HCWs’ morbidity posttrauma continues to be limited, as the majority of the previous work has focused on the short-term or immediate impact of SARS on HCWs, with only a few studies dedicated to the evaluation of its long-term or sustained impact. Previous research into the long-term impact of SARS on HCWs spans 1–3 years postoutbreak. The present study extends previous research by examining HCWs up to 7 years postoutbreak. More specifically, frontline HCWs who contracted and survived SARS were evaluated at 1 year (2004), 4 years (2007), and 7 years (2010) postoutbreak by using a within-participants design. Across all three time points, frontline HCWs showed a lack of abatement in clinically significant levels of depression, anxiety, and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptomatology. In addition, HCWs reported below average and persistent functional outcomes, such as problems with pain, reduced vitality, and reductions in physical, mental, and social functioning. Finally, we report on the particular psychiatric variables from 1 year postoutbreak that are significantly associated with functional debility at 4 and 7 years postoutbreak. Findings of this study underscore the importance of understanding the long-term sequelae of infectious disease outbreaks on frontline HCWs, in order to decrease the likelihood of chronic adverse outcomes in this population. This information is especially relevant now, given the current global outbreak of Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2021 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Psychosocial factors associated with Canadian police officers’
           susceptibility to posttraumatic stress and growth.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Potentially traumatic event exposures occur frequently in policing, yet relatively little research has been done on posttraumatic outcomes in Canadian federal and municipal officers. Given that posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in police populations represents a significant health concern and economic burden, clarifying risk and protective factors for PTSD would inform screening, training, and early intervention for Canadian police. The current research investigated the relationship between psychosocial variables [i.e., anxiety sensitivity (AS), intolerance of uncertainty (IU), childhood adversity, personality facets, work engagement, hope, optimism, and perceived social support] and trauma outcomes (i.e., PTSD, posttraumatic growth) in a sample of 500 Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and municipal officers deployed in Saskatchewan. Within the sample, 25% of RCMP officers and 12% of municipal officers screened positive for PTSD based on self-reported symptoms. Several psychosocial variables were statistically significantly (p < .05) associated with PTSD (i.e., high AS; high IU; low social support; and low optimism) and posttraumatic growth (i.e., greater PTSD severity; high agreeableness; and more adverse childhood events) for both RCMP and municipal participants. The psychosocial variables represent possible aims for prevention or intervention protocols across Canadian police populations. Comprehensive results, implications, and directions for the future research are discussed. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2021 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Explaining support for post-secondary educational funding for indigenous
           students.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: A concerning post-secondary education gap exists between Indigenous and non-Indigenous individuals in Canada. One program designed to help address this issue, the Post-Secondary Student Support Program (PSSSP), provides eligible First Nations students with post-secondary education funding. Although such programs are beneficial, it is unclear how much Canadians support public funding of Indigenous education and whether psychological research can help explain why some may endorse or oppose it. Thus, using the PSSSP as an example, we examined five possible psychological predictors of public support: personal prejudice toward Indigenous Peoples, perceived social mobility, meritocratic beliefs, group zero-sum beliefs, and political conservatism. Based on previous research, we hypothesized that all would negatively relate to support for the PSSSP. In a sample of non-Indigenous Canadian adults, we found that only higher personal prejudice, group zero-sum beliefs, and political conservatism uniquely explained lower support for the program (or conversely, lower prejudice, group zero-sum beliefs, and political liberalism were related to higher program support). Although correlational, this study provides insight into factors that may influence Canadians’ attitudes toward a program aimed at addressing a consequential societal inequality. We discuss the implications of these findings in regard to support for programs and policies targeted at marginalized groups. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2021 APA, all rights reserved)

  • On the quest for quality self-report data: HEXACO and indicators of
           careless responding.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Careless responding is an ongoing concern for social science researchers, especially with the rising popularity of online data collection. In this article, we examine personality trait predictors of careless responding and explore the relationships between various subjective and objective indicators of carelessness. Data were collected from two samples (N = 470 and N = 822) where participants rated a large number of items and completed the HEXACO-PI-R. The subjective and objective indicators of data quality were related to five HEXACO traits—in particular conscientiousness, agreeableness, and openness—and were correlated in the expected directions. Differences between the samples suggest that careless responding screening should be dispersed across surveys, rather than lumped at the end.

  • Habitual, but not momentary, avoidance strategy use moderates the
           association between disgust sensitivity and affective response to a
           disgust-inducing film clip.

      Abstract: Habitually avoiding disgust-eliciting stimuli may lead to a stronger connection between negative appraisals (i.e., disgust sensitivity) and experiences of disgust. We tested if the use of experiential avoidance or expressive suppression moderated the association between disgust sensitivity and disgust ratings. Sixty-seven female undergraduate students reported disgust sensitivity and their habitual use of experiential avoidance and expressive suppression. Participants viewed a disgust-eliciting video and reported disgust levels before and after. The interactions between disgust sensitivity and habitual experiential avoidance, B = .14, SE = .06, p = .03, 95% CI [.02, .26], and disgust sensitivity and habitual expressive suppression, B = 1.09, SE = .53, p = .046, 95% CI [.02, 2.15], were significant. At low levels of these strategies, there was no association between disgust sensitivity and disgust ratings, whereas at high levels of these strategies, there was a positive association. There were no significant interactions when predicting anxiety ratings. We discuss these results in terms of behavioural conditioning theories.

  • Nudging to increase hand hygiene during the COVID-19 pandemic: A field
           experiment.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic has made a significant impact on citizens all around the world. In order to prevent the spread of the virus, one of the most important measures is practicing hand hygiene. We see nudging, a technique from behavioural economics, as a possible way to increase hand hygiene without relying on mandatory measures. In this field experiment, we test two nudge types that previously have been applied successfully, a salience nudge and a gain frame nudge, in a new context (i.e., shopping street). Four hundred nineteen shoppers were observed during a counterbalanced experiment in three stores, where a disinfectant dispenser was accompanied by a salience nudge, gain frame nudge, or no nudge. Data on dispenser usage was analysed using mixed models to account for groups entering the store. When compared to the control condition, no significant effect of either nudge on participants using the disinfectant was found. This could be caused by the increased attention for hand hygiene during COVID-19, because the baseline for practicing hand hygiene in our study was much higher than that in previous pre-COVID-19 studies. Alternatively, it is possible that shoppers already disinfected their hands before leaving the house, as advised by the government. Our results suggest that stores, and governments, should look for other measures than the tested nudges to improve hand hygiene in the shopping street during the COVID-19 pandemic, either combining different nudges and/or using less subtle methods.

  • Identity processing styles and quality of life in head and neck cancer.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: A cancer diagnosis produces important disruptions in a person’s life that can lead to a reconsideration of one’s roles, values, purposes, and goals. This may threaten one’s identity, which can be defined as an implicit self-theory construed using different identity processing styles (IPSs), categorised as informational, normative, and diffuse-avoidant. This study examined IPSs, commitment to identity, and their relationship to psychosocial outcomes in head and neck cancer (HNC) survivors. Sixty patients (age: M = 57.4, SD = 9.9) were recruited from an HNC outpatient clinic. Participants were at least 1 year posttreatment, on medical follow up, and free of recurrence. All participants completed questionnaires assessing IPS, quality of life (QoL), anxiety and depression, positive and negative perceptions of illness impact, and body image concerns. Correlational analyses showed that commitment to identity was significantly related to higher QoL, illness impact, and anxiety. A normative IPS was related to higher QoL. A diffuse-avoidant IPS was related to a negative perception of illness impact. A bootstrapped multiple regression analysis showed that only the normative IPS was a significant predictor of overall QoL. For this sample of HNC patients, a stronger commitment to normative goals, values, and beliefs contributed to the preservation of identity and to a greater sense of well-being during survivorship. Many forms of psychotherapy include a focus on various aspects of identity, some more directly than others. We discuss how such therapies may be applied to improve psychosocial outcomes in HNC patients. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2021 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Do Canadian and U.S. American handgun owners differ'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This study of male Canadian (n = 475) and U.S. (n = 425) handgun owners addresses 2 questions: (a) Are there differences in gun-related motivation and behaviour patterns; and (b) does the Model of Defensive Gun Ownership of Stroebe, Leander, and Kruglanski (2017) fit data of Canadian handgun gun owners' U.S. and Canadian gun cultures are supposed to be different: Unlike most U.S. gun owners, Canadian gun owners are not assumed to purchase guns for self-defense because they trust their government to protect them against crime. Although Canadian and U.S. handgun owners differed in their gun-related motivation and behaviour patterns, these differences were less substantial than expected: Mean levels of trust in law enforcement of Canadian and U.S. handgun owners did not differ. Furthermore, half of Canadian gun owners considered self-defense to be an important reason for gun ownership. Finally, a structural equation model that had fit the U.S. data of Stroebe et al. (2017) could also be applied to the Canadian data. Given that 30% of all Canadian handguns were purchased between 2012 and 2017, which is when shootings became more common in Canada’s large cities, we speculate that recent events may have reduced differences that might have existed between Canadian and American handgun owners.

  • Workplace violence and psychopathology in paramedics and firefighters:
           Mediated by posttraumatic cognitions.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Paramedics and firefighters have an elevated risk for developing psychopathology, yet much is unknown about why this occurs. One contributor may involve exposure to high levels of workplace violence associated with unpredictable and dangerous work environments. Further, appraising such events in a negative, maladaptive fashion may exacerbate the psychological impacts of workplace violence. Accordingly, the purposes of the current study were to examine the relationship of workplace violence to psychopathology in first responders and investigate how posttraumatic cognitions may mediate this relationship. A convenience sample of firefighters (n = 117) and paramedics (n = 129) from a large urban department in Canada completed an online survey measuring symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, workplace violence, and posttraumatic cognitions. We found high levels of workplace violence and a pervasive association between violence and psychopathology in paramedics and firefighters, which was mediated by posttraumatic cognitions. We discuss the implications of the current findings for understanding, protecting, and supporting first responders. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2021 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Stakeholder perspectives on internet-delivered cognitive behavioural
           therapy for public safety personnel: A qualitative analysis.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Public safety personnel (PSP)—including border security agents, correctional workers, dispatchers, firefighters, paramedics, and police—have elevated rates of depression, anxiety, and posttraumatic stress. In its Action Plan on Posttraumatic Stress Injuries, the Government of Canada reported that many PSP are unable to access treatment for mental health problems. The Action Plan identified internet-delivered cognitive behavioural therapy (ICBT) as a treatment that can improve access to care for PSP. Nevertheless, little is known about how PSP perceive ICBT and what tailoring PSP deem important to address their needs. We conducted interviews with 126 PSP stakeholders in the Canadian provinces of Saskatchewan and Quebec to explore their perspectives on ICBT. The results confirmed that PSP face many barriers to treatment. Stigma was the most frequently cited barrier. The results also indicated that PSP have positive perceptions of ICBT; most stakeholders reported believing there is a need for ICBT tailored for PSP and that PSP would be likely to use it. Stakeholders provided valuable recommendations regarding how researchers and clinicians should design and deliver ICBT for PSP. Specifically, PSP recommended that tailored ICBT should treat a range of symptoms, address other concerns that are important to PSP, and be delivered in a flexible manner. The results indicate that PSP perceive ICBT as an appropriate treatment option to help address the high prevalence of mental health problems among Canadian PSP. These findings have helped us tailor an existing ICBT program for PSP and may help researchers tailoring interventions to PSP in other contexts.

  • Élaboration d’une échelle d’épanouissement psychologique en milieu
           de travail (ÉÉPMT) et examen de ses qualités psychométriques.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This research aims to develop a personal flourishing psychological scale specific to the occupational context and then examine its metrological qualities. The scale, composed of eight verbal items, is an adaptation to the occupational context of the Flourishing Scale made by Diener et al. (2010), validated in French by Villieux, Sovet, Jung and Guilbert (2016). A total of 405 French employees completed the scale. Results show good internal consistency (omega higher than .75) and satisfactory temporal stability (r = .90). The examination of the factor structure of the scale suggests a one-dimensional structure. Finally, the convergent validity tested with a measure of life satisfaction at work is also conclusive. With its integrative construction based on recent theories of well-being, its satisfactory psychometric qualities and a form that is both short and handy to administer, the scale is of great interest to both researchers and practitioners interested in the field of well-being at work. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2021 APA, all rights reserved)
