  • Medical rescuers’ occupational health during COVID-19: Contribution of
           coping and emotion regulation on burnout, trauma and post-traumatic growth

    • Abstract: Abstract The COVID-19 pandemic places unique challenges to medical rescuers’ occupational health. Thus, it is crucial to assess its direct and indirect impacts on key psychological outcomes and adaptation strategies. This study aims to analyse the impact of this pandemic on medical rescuers’ coping and emotion regulation strategies, and their levels of work-related psychological outcomes, such as burnout, trauma and post-traumatic growth. Additionally, it aims to analyse the contribution of coping and emotion regulation strategies, employed to manage the COVID-19 pandemic, on burnout, trauma and post-traumatic growth. A sample of 111 medical rescuers answered the Brief Cope, Emotion Regulation Questionnaire, Oldenburg Burnout Inventory, Impact of Event Scale-Revised and Post-Traumatic Growth Inventory. Medical rescuers resorted moderately to coping and emotion regulation strategies, since the beginning of COVID-19. They presented moderate burnout and post-traumatic growth and low trauma. Coping presented a higher weight on burnout, trauma and post-traumatic growth, than emotion regulation. Expressive suppression and dysfunctional coping predicted burnout and trauma, and problem and emotion-focused coping predicted post-traumatic growth. Dysfunctional coping mediated and, thus, exacerbated the effect of expressive suppression on burnout and on trauma. Practitioners should pay closer attention to professionals with higher burnout and trauma. Occupational practices should focus on reducing dysfunctional coping and expressive suppression and promoting problem-focused coping.Resumo A pandemia COVID-19 coloca desafios únicos à saúde ocupacional dos profissionais do pré-hospitalar. Assim, é fundamental avaliar o seu impacto psicológico, para sintomatologia direta ou indiretamente relacionada com a COVID-19. Pretende-se analisar o impacto desta pandemia nos outcomes psicológicos laborais, como burnout, trauma e crescimento pós-traumático, e nas estratégias de coping e regulação emocional. Pretende-se também analisar o contributo do coping e regulação emocional para estes outcomes. Uma amostra de 111 profissionais de emergência médica pré-hospitalar responderam ao Brief Cope, Emotion Regulation Questionnaire, Oldenburg Burnout Inventory, Impact of Event Scale-Revised e Post-Traumatic Growth Inventory. Os profissionais recorreram moderadamente a estratégias de coping e regulação emocional, desde o início da pandemia. Reportaram moderado burnout e crescimento pós-traumático e baixo trauma. O coping apresentou maior peso para os outcomes. A supressão emocional e o coping disfuncional contribuíram para o burnout e trauma, e o coping problema e emoção contribuíram para o crescimento pós-traumático. O coping disfuncional mediou e exarcebou o efeito da supressão emocional no burnout e trauma. Assim, poderá ser dada especial atenção a profissionais com elevado burnout e trauma e as práticas poderão ser focadas na redução do coping disfuncional e supressão emocional, bem como na promoção do coping problema.
  • Coping with the COVID-19 pandemic: Strategies employed by different
           sociodemographic groups and their role on quality of life

    • Abstract: Abstract The ways people cope with stressful and crisis-inducing episodes, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, have implications for quality of life. The current study aimed to analyse how coping strategies used by individuals during the COVID-19 pandemic varied according to sociodemographic characteristics. It also aimed to analyse how such strategies influence quality of life. Through an online survey, 505 adults living in Portugal reported on their sociodemographic characteristics, coping strategies, and perceptions of quality of life during the COVID-19 pandemic period. A sociodemographic questionnaire and the Portuguese versions of the Brief COPE and WHOQOL-BREF were used to assess the variables of interest. The main results suggest that middle-aged and more educated individuals, who were exposed to more risks at work, used more effective coping strategies. Men used more self-blaming coping strategies while women used more emotional support, religion, distraction, self-distraction, and behavioural withdrawal. Active coping was the strongest predictor of physical, psychological, and social domains of quality of life. Further studies are needed to examine the growth trajectory after the mitigation phase and the coping strategies used to promote mental health. Overall, advocating for active coping with current challenges promotes positive perceptions of quality of life amid the pandemic COVID-19.Resumo A forma como as pessoas lidam com situações de crise e stress, como é o caso da pandemia COVID-19, tem implicações na sua qualidade de vida. O presente estudo teve como objetivo analisar de que forma pessoas de diferentes grupos sociodemográficos utilizaram diferentes estratégias de coping durante a pandemia COVID-19. Foi também objetivo deste estudo, analisar de que forma essas estratégias influenciam a qualidade de vida. 505 adultos residentes em Portugal participaram num questionário online, indicando as suas características sociodemográficas, estratégias de coping e perceções relativas à sua qualidade de vida durante o período de pandemia devida à COVID-19. O protocolo de avaliação incluiu um questionário sociodemográfico e as versões portuguesas do Brief COPE e do WHOQOL-BREF. Os resultados principais sugerem que as pessoas de meia idade e com níveis mais elevados de educação, que foram mais expostas a riscos no trabalho utilizaram estratégias de coping mais eficazes. Os homens utilizaram mais estratégias de coping focadas na autoculpabilização enquanto as mulheres recorreram mais ao apoio emocional, à religião, a estratégias de distração e autodistração, assim como de evitamento comportamental. O coping ativo foi o preditor mais forte da qualidade de vida nos domínios físico, psicológico e social. Estudos de continuidade são necessários para averiguar as trajetórias após a fase de mitigação da pandemia e as estratégias de coping utilizadas para promover a saúde mental. De um modo geral, sugere-se que o coping ativo face aos desafios no contexto da pandemia COVID-19 poderá promover perceções mais positivas da qualidade de vida.
  • Family foster care: Perceptions of Portuguese child protection

    • Abstract: Abstract Family foster care (FFC) is the preferred out-of-home care measure for the protection of children and youth through Europe, in accordance with research findings of its superiority in meeting developmental needs of children and youth. Portugal, however, does not accompany the European trend in the implementation of FFC. Even after changes made to the law, prioritizing FFC, it represents only 2,7% of out-of-home placements (Instituto de Segurança Social, I.P. [ISS-IP], 2020). The main goal of this exploratory and descriptive study is to understand the perceptions of Portuguese child protection professionals concerning FFC. 101 participants, from different professional backgrounds and child protection contexts, filled out a questionnaire. Main findings show a heterogeneous degree of familiarity to FFC, and a generally positive although reserved attitude to it. Professionals seem to value its child-centred approach and ability to promote child development and healthy attachment relationships, due to the benefits of a family environment. Participants identified regulations and procedures related to selection, evaluation, training, and support to foster families both as obstacles and necessary conditions for placement success, indicating important arenas where change urges.Resumo O Acolhimento familiar (AF) é uma medida de colocação considerada preferencial no quadro da promoção e proteção de crianças e jovens em risco, em linha com a evidência científica que suporta a sua capacidade de responder às necessidades desenvolvimentais de crianças e jovens. No entanto, Portugal não acompanha a tendência europeia de implementação do AF. Mesmo após mudanças legislativas que priorizam o AF, este representa apenas 2,7% das colocações em acolhimento em Portugal (Instituto de Segurança Social, I.P. [ISS-IP], 2020). Este estudo, exploratório e descritivo, tem como objetivo principal conhecer as perceções dos profissionais do sistema de promoção e proteção de crianças e jovens relativamente à medida de AF. Participaram no estudo 101 profissionais provenientes de vários contextos do sistema de promoção e proteção em Portugal. Os resultados mostram um nível heterogéneo de familiaridade com o AF, e uma atitude geral positiva, embora com reservas. Os profissionais valorizam o AF pelo facto de ser centrado na criança, promotor de relações de vinculação de qualidade e de um desenvolvimento saudável. Os participantes identificaram os procedimentos de seleção, avaliação, formação e acompanhamento às famílias de acolhimento tanto como obstáculos, como condições necessárias ao sucesso da medida, indicando estas como áreas fundamentais em que a mudança urge.
  • The influence of organizational compassion on Job Crafting: A motivational
           resource facilitator'

    • Abstract: Abstract This study aimed to analyse the relationship between the perception of compassion at work (consciousness, empathy, evaluation, response type) and compassionate “actions and organizational characteristics” on job crafting (increasing structural job resources, increasing social job resources, increasing challenging job demands, decreasing hindering job demands). The study collected quantitative data from 231 professionals from different economic sectors. The results indicated that only the dimensions: “evaluation” and “response type” of the compassion process, as well as compassionate “organizational characteristics”, showed a positive influence in the “increasing structural job resources”, “increasing social job resources” and “increasing challenging job demands”. There was no negative relationship between the dimensions of the compassion process and compassionate “organizational characteristics and actions” in “decreasing hindering job demands”. The mechanisms by which compassion at work could have positive effects on the job crafting processes are presented.Resumo Este estudo teve como objectivo analisar a relação entre a percepção da compaixão no trabalho (consciência, empatia, avaliação, tipo de resposta) e as “acções e características organizacionais” compassivas na moldagem do trabalho (aumento dos recursos laborais estruturais, aumento dos recursos laborais sociais; aumento de exigências laborais desafiantes, redução de exigências laborais incómodas). Foram recolhidos dados quantitativos a partir de 231 profissionais de diferentes sectores económicos. Os resultados indicaram que apenas as dimensões do processo compassivo “avaliação” e “tipo de resposta”, bem como as “características organizacionais” compassivas influenciaram de forma positiva o “aumento dos recursos laborais estruturais”, “aumento dos recursos laborais sociais” e “aumento das exigências laborais desafiantes”. Não se verificou relação negativa entre as dimensões do processo de compaixão e as “características e ações organizacionais” compassivas na “redução de exigências laborais incómodas”. Conclui-se com uma reflexão sobre os mecanismos através dos quais a compaixão no trabalho poderá ter efeitos positivos nos processos de moldagem do trabalho.
  • Perceived cost of newly prescribed medication and supplementary diagnostic
           tests in the elderly: An experimental approach

    • Abstract: Abstract Primary nonadherence to medical prescription is a notorious phenomenon among the elderly. The perceived cost of medication and supplementary diagnostic tests is a major factor driving prescription adherence decisions. To explore the way such factor impinges on the perception of prescription cost, two independent samples of elderly volunteers (medication, N=59; supplementary diagnostic tests, N=58) rated on a visual analogue scale specific amounts of money matching three proportions of income reduction of a fictitious patient. Both medication and supplementary diagnostic tests modalities of prescription showed participants’ perception of cost to notoriously vary in the 3% and the 30% proportions of prescription values to the fictitious patient’s income, but not in the 15%. Further, Different patterns of perceived cost response suggest that an element of intertemporal choice influenced cost perception. Participants’ income had had no impact on their perception of cost, contrary to the pattern of self-referent responses that “perspective-taking” approaches would suggest. Further, research would benefit from broadening these experimental settings to include other known factors impacting nonadherence along with cost.Resumo A não-adesão primária à prescrição médica é um fenómeno patente entre os idosos. A perceção do custo da medicação e dos meios complementares de diagnóstico é um fator importante nestas decisões. Para explorar o modo como este fator influencia a perceção de custo da prescrição, duas amostras independentes de idosos voluntários (medicação, N=59; meios complementares de diagnóstico, N=58) classificaram numa escala visual analógica montantes de dinheiro em três proporções de redução de rendimento de um paciente fictício. Tanto na medicação como nos meios complementares de diagnóstico, a perceção do custo de prescrição variou notoriamente nas proporções de 3% e 30%, mas não na de 15%. Mais ainda, diferentes padrões de resposta de custo percebido sugerem que um elemento de escolha intertemporal influenciou a perceção de custo. O rendimento dos participantes não teve impacto na perceção do custo, contrariando o padrão de respostas autorreferenciais que as abordagens de “tomada de perspetiva” sugerem. Uma sequência desta pesquisa beneficiaria com o alargamento a cenários experimentais com outros fatores de reconhecido impacto na não adesão, conjuntamente com o custo.
  • The mediator role of the perceived working conditions and safety
           leadership on the relationship between safety culture and safety
           performance: A case study in a Portuguese construction company

    • Abstract: Abstract Occupational accidents in the construction sector are still a major concern with relevant costs at different levels, both individually and socially. We developed and tested two structural equation models to study, from the workers’ point of view, the mediator role of working conditions and safety leadership on the relationship between safety culture and safety performance, in a Portuguese firm. This quantitative and correlational case study applied a questionnaire to a convenience sample of 320 workers. A structural equation modeling analysis showed that safety culture was predominant in predicting safety performance and that working conditions mediated this relationship, but safety leadership did not. The results allow company’s managers gaining certain insights about the role of safety culture, working conditions and safety leadership on safety performance prediction and in the work accidents’ prevention. Furthermore, likely may help to understand what is going on in other firms, in construction sector in Portugal, and to identify problematic areas needing to be addressed.Resumo Os acidentes de trabalho no setor da construção constituem uma preocupação séria, com custos ao nível individual e social. Com base num questionário aplicado a uma amostra de conveniência com 320 trabalhadores de uma construtora portuguesa, desenvolvemos e testámos dois modelos para estudar, do ponto de vista dos trabalhadores, o papel mediador das condições de trabalho e da liderança de segurança, na relação entre a cultura de segurança e o desempenho em segurança. A análise baseada nos modelos de equações estruturais mostrou que a cultura de segurança foi sempre predominante na predição do desempenho em segurança e que as condições de trabalho mediaram essa relação, mas a liderança de segurança não mediou essa relação. Estes resultados enfatizaram a importância dos papéis da cultura de segurança, das condições de trabalho, e da liderança de segurança, na predição do desempenho em segurança e na prevenção de acidentes de trabalho na construtora. Poderão, ainda, contribuir para ajudar a compreender o que está a acontecer em outras empresas do sector da construção, em Portugal, e a identificar áreas problemáticas que necessitem de ser abordadas.
  • The impact of a naturalistic intervention on preschool children’s
           morphological awareness development

    • Abstract: Abstract This study evaluated the effectiveness of a morphological awareness intervention delivered by preschool teachers in the naturalistic setting of their classrooms. The participants were 162 Portuguese children, attending kindergarten who were allocated as groups to experimental and control conditions. The former group was the object of six-weeks morphological awareness intervention anchored on explicit discussions about the morphological structure of words appearing in selected storybooks. The control group received normal curriculum activities. Results showed strong to high effect sizes on morphological awareness post-test abilities of children in the experimental group related to identifying words of the same “family”, interpreting the meaning of stems and affixes in morphologically structured pseudowords and finding the base word in derived or inflected stimuli, after controlling for age, cognitive ability, vocabulary, pre-test phonological and morphological results. The relevance of developing tools that help preschool children to consciously manipulate morphemes as meaningful building blocks of words, in partnership with preschool teachers, is proposed.Resumo Este estudo avaliou a eficácia de uma intervenção sobre consciência morfológica desenvolvida por educadores de infância no contexto natural das suas salas. Participaram 162 crianças portuguesas que frequentavam jardins-de-infância, alocadas ao grupo experimental e ao grupo de controlo consoante as turmas que frequentavam. O grupo experimental foi objeto de uma intervenção de 6 semanas sobre consciência morfológica, em que foi explicitamente discutida a estrutura morfológica de palavras de livros de histórias selecionados. O grupo de controlo participou nas atividades curriculares usuais. Os resultados do pós-teste mostraram que as crianças do grupo experimental tiveram melhores desempenhos na identificação de palavras da mesma “família”, na interpretação do significado de prefixos e afixos em pseudopalavras estruturadas morfologicamente e na identificação da palavra-base em palavras derivadas ou flexionadas, após controlo da idade, da competência cognitiva, do vocabulário e dos resultados do pré-teste relativos à consciência fonológica e morfológica. Este estudo mostra a relevância de desenvolver, em parceria com educadores de infância, instrumentos que ajudem as crianças em idade pré-escolar a manipular conscientemente morfemas enquanto constituintes das palavras.
  • Children’s social and emotional behavior: Role of maternal emotion
           regulation, psychopathological symptomatology, and family functioning

    • Abstract: Abstract Research has demonstrated that maternal emotion regulation strategies (self-criticism and self-compassion), mental health, and family functioning impacts child functioning. Due to the paucity of studies, we aimed to analyze: (1) the associations between maternal emotion regulation strategies, psychopathological symptomatology, family functioning, and mother’s perceived child social and emotional behavior (SEB); (2) the differences in mother’s perceived child SEB, according to maternal, child and family characteristics; (3) the predictive role of maternal emotion regulation in mother’s perceived child SEB. A sample of 431 mothers (25-59 years), with children aged 4-17 years (55.5% male), answered the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire, the Systemic Clinical Outcome and Routine Evaluation, the Brief Symptom Inventory, the Forms of Self-Criticizing/Attacking and Self- Reassuring Scale, and the Self-Compassion Scale. The results showed positive associations between self-criticism, maternal psychopathological symptomatology, worse family functioning and child social and emotional problems, as well between maternal self-compassion and child prosocial behaviors. Mothers who reported low income, elementary school education, a history of psychiatric illness and whose children had early behavior changes perceived more social and emotional difficulties in their children. Maternal self-criticism was the main predictor of child social and emotional difficulties. In conclusion, maternal emotion regulation strategies and psychopathological symptomatology are associated with family functioning and child SEB.Resumo A investigação demonstra que as estratégias de regulação emocional maternas (autocrítica e autocompaixão), saúde mental e funcionamento familiar têm impacto no funcionamento da criança e do adolescente. Devido à escassez de estudos, temos como objetivos analisar: (1) as associações entre estratégias de regulação emocional materna, sintomatologia psicopatológica, funcionamento familiar, e a perceção materna do comportamento social e emocional dos filhos ; (2) as diferenças na perceção materna do comportamento social e emocional dos filhos consoante as características da mãe, dos filhos e da família; (3) o papel preditivo da regulação emocional materna na perceção materna do comportamento social e emocional dos filhos. Uma amostra de 431 mães (25-59 anos), com filhos de 4-17 anos (55,5% do sexo masculino), respondeu ao Questionário de Capacidades e Dificuldades, Systemic Clinical Outcome Routine Evaluation (SCORE-15), Inventário de Sintomas Psicopatológicos, Escala das Formas do Autocriticismo e Autotranquilização e Escala de Autocompaixão. Os resultados mostraram associações positivas entre o autocriticismo, a sintomatologia psicopatológica materna, pior funcionamento familiar e problemas sociais e emocionais dos filhos, e entre autocompaixão materna e comportamento prossocial dos filhos. Mães que relataram baixos rendimentos, educação escolar básica, história de doença psiquiátrica e cujos filhos tiveram alterações no comportamento precoce perceberam mais dificuldades sociais e emocionais nos seus filhos. O autocriticismo materno foi o principal preditor das dificuldades sociais e emocionais das crianças e adolescentes. Em conclusão, as estratégias de regulação emocional materna e a sintomatologia psicopatológica estão associadas ao funcionamento familiar e ao comportamento social e emocional dos filhos.
  • Psychometric properties of the Brazilian version of Clinical Perfectionism
           Questionnaire after rewording negatively keyed items

    • Abstract: Abstract The present study aims to verify the psychometric properties of the Brazilian version of Clinical Perfectionism Questionnaire after rewording negatively keyed items into positive (CPQ+). It was used a convenience sample of 168 Brazilian university students (M=25.37, SD=7.40), being 76.8% women. After rewording the negatively keyed items into positive, the CPQ+ was applied. The Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scales - Short Form (DASS-21) were also applied. The Corrected Item-Total Correlation values of CPQ+ items were close to or higher than the cutoff point. After exclusion of item 8, due to crossloading, and correlation between errors of items 3 and 10, the correlated two-factor model presented the best fit of latent structure to CPQ+, through Confirmatory Factor Analysis. The Perfectionistic Concerns dimension of CPQ+ was greater related to global score of DASS-21 in comparison to the Perfectionistic Striving dimension, indicating good validity regarding other variables. In summary, results recommend the use of CPQ+ presented in this study, it is, a version with 11 positive items.Resumo O presente estudo tem como objetivo verificar as propriedades psicométricas da versão brasileira do Questionário de Perfeccionismo Clínico após a reformulação de itens negativos em positivos (CPQ+). Foi utilizada uma amostra de conveniência de 168 universitários brasileiros (M=25.37, DP=7.40), sendo 76.8% mulheres. Após reformular os itens negativos para positivos, o CPQ+ foi aplicado. A Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scales - Short Form (DASS-21) também foi aplicada. Os valores de Correlação Item-Total Corrigido dos itens do CPQ+ foram limítrofes ou superiores ao ponto de corte. Após a exclusão do item 8, devido ao crossloading, e a inclusão da correlação entre os erros dos itens 3 e 10, o modelo de dois fatores correlacionados foi o de melhor ajuste para o CPQ+ através da Análise Fatorial Confirmatória. A dimensão Preocupações Perfeccionistas do CPQ+ esteve mais relacionada ao escore global da DASS-21 em comparação à dimensão Esforço Perfeccionista, indicando boa validade em relação a outras variáveis. Em síntese, os resultados encontrados recomendam a utilização do CPQ+ apresentado neste estudo, ou seja, uma versão com 11 itens positivos.
  • Validation of the revised Belief in a Just World Scale based on Popular

    • Abstract: Abstract The development of measures that assess individual differences in the Belief in a Just World plays an important role in advancing research in this area. The intent of this article was to validate a new version of the Belief in a Just World Scale based on Popular Sayings (BJWPS), proposing that this measure may be an alternative to the original scale. For this, two studies were developed: Study 1 (N=160) aimed to presenting psychometric evidence for a new version of the BJWPS scale through an exploratory factor analysis. Study 2 (N=144) aimed to verify the goodness-of-fit of the proposed measurement model using confirmatory factor analysis. Results of the two studies indicated a single-factor structure that assesses BJW, which corroborates the theoretical frameworks of the BJW scales. Together, the results allow us to conclude that the BJWPS presented satisfactory psychometric indexes.Resumo O desenvolvimento de medidas que avaliam as diferenças individuais da crença no mundo justo desempenha um papel importante no avanço da pesquisa nesta área. O objetivo deste artigo foi validar uma nova versão da Escala Crença em um Mundo Justo baseada em Ditados Populares (CMJDP), propondo que esta medida possa ser uma alternativa à escala original. Para isso, foram desenvolvidos dois estudos: Estudo 1 (N=160) teve como objetivo apresentar evidências psicométricas para uma nova versão da escala CMJDP por meio de uma análise fatorial exploratória. O Estudo 2 (N=144) teve como objetivo verificar a adequação da proposta ao modelo de medição usando análise fatorial confirmatória. Os resultados dos dois estudos indicaram uma estrutura unifatorial que avalia a CMJ, o que corrobora os referenciais teóricos das escalas da CMJ. Juntos, os resultados permitem concluir que a CMJDP apresentou índices psicométricos satisfatórios.
