  • Subjective Social Status and Mental Health Outcomes: The Role of
           Mindfulness

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Hannah K. Heitz, Amanda M. Mitchell
      Abstract: Journal of Prevention and Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Positive personal resources have been shown to buffer the relationship between low subjective social status and poor mental health outcomes. However, limited data exist in relation to the role of mindfulness. The current study investigated how mindfulness moderates the relationship between subjective social status with life satisfaction and subjective well-being. Three hundred and twenty-two adults completed measures assessing subjective social status, as measured by the society and community ladders, mindfulness, life satisfaction, and well-being. Using PROCESS, a macro for SPSS and SAS,  mindfulness was found to significantly moderate the relationship between society ladder and life satisfaction (△R2 = .02, 95% confidence interval (CI) [−0.93, −0.15], p = .007) as well as the community ladder and life satisfaction (△R2 = .01, 95% CI [−.92, −0.11], p = .013). No significant moderating effect was found between the society ladder and subjective well-being (95% CI [−0.59, 1.73], p = .335) or the community ladder and subjective well-being (95% CI [−0.82, 1.54], p = .551). These findings underscore the value of investigating how positive personal resources, such as mindfulness, impact the subjective social status-well-being relationship. Additional research examining the subjective social status–health relationship through a strengths-based lens will be fruitful in identifying resources that promote positive outcomes in the face of economic marginalization.

  • “We in This Fight Together…”: HIV Treatment and Prevention Among
           Couples of HIV-Discordant Black and Latino Men Who Have Sex with Men

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Damian J. Denson, Deborah Gelaude, Alisú Schoua-Glusberg
      Abstract: Journal of Prevention and Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      HIV-positive Black and Latino men who have sex with men (MSM) have substantial challenges accessing and engaging in HIV care. Findings presented here are an analysis of 14 HIV-discordant couples (N = 28) from Atlanta, GA; Baltimore, MD; Chicago, IL; Los Angeles, CA; and Washington, DC. One-hour in-depth interviews were conducted. Interviews were analyzed using a qualitative content analysis approach. Most couples reported relationship fears associated with delayed disclosure, HIV care engagement instigated by the HIV-uninfected partner, and varying knowledge and concern about the impacts of HIV infection and risk reduction. Findings suggest an opportunity to jointly educate and treat MSM of color in HIV-discordant relationships to improve engagement in ART and PrEP care and adherence.

      Authors: Mary Mulla Abu-Yaman, Zipora Shechtman
      First page: 126
      Abstract: Journal of Prevention and Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      The established connection between disruptive and aggressive behavior, classroom climate, and classroom relationships led to an increase in suggested prevention programs. In the current study, we suggest a teaching modality (rather a program) named affective teaching and assess its effect on students’ behavior, motivation, achievement, and classroom climate, as well as on teacher self-efficacy. Participants were 92 teachers of 2893 fifth and sixth graders from 19 Arab schools in Israel. A hierarchical model of analysis (Mixed Models) was used to assess children’s gains in two randomized teaching conditions: affective teaching and conventional teaching. Results indicated more favorable outcomes on all measures in the affective teaching condition compared to control. Relationships, behavior, and teacher efficacy were significantly associated with children’s gains in motivation and content knowledge. The discussion focuses on the potential effect of this unique teaching modality on children’s psychological growth and adjusting behavior.

  • The Longitudinal Relationship Between Peer Relations and Empathy and Their
           Joint Contribution to Reducing Bullying in Middle School: Findings From a
           Randomized Trial of Cooperative Learning

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Mark J. Van Ryzin, Cary J. Roseth
      First page: 147
      Abstract: Journal of Prevention and Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      The positive peer relations arising from cooperative learning can contribute to the development of affective empathy, which in turn can reduce bullying (Van Ryzin & Roseth, 2019). However, from a theoretical perspective, the direction of effects between peer relations and empathy could be in the opposite direction, or bi-directional. In the current paper, we employed a process-oriented approach (i.e., cross-lag difference score modeling; McArdle, 2009) to investigate the longitudinal relationship between positive peer relations and affective empathy as well as their joint effect on bullying. Using four waves of data from a cluster randomized trial including 15 middle schools (7 intervention and 8 control schools; N = 1,890 students, 47.1% female, 75.2% White), we found a bi-directional or reciprocal relationship between peer relations and affective empathy, and change in both constructs predicted lower levels of bullying. Cooperative learning predicted positive change in peer relations and affective empathy, as well as lower levels of bullying. These results suggest that the structured social interactions that occur during cooperative learning can enhance student interpersonal relations, and simultaneously the experiential skill building of cooperative learning can contribute to a more profound understanding of the emotional states of others. These effects amplify one another and, in turn, significantly reduce bullying in middle school. Given that cooperative learning has already been demonstrated to enhance academic motivation and achievement (Roseth et al., 2008), we argue that cooperative learning offers an effective, attractive alternative to traditional curriculum-based bullying prevention programs.

  • Preventing Bullying and Improving School Climate Through Integrating Youth
           Participatory Action Research Into School-wide Positive Behavioral
           Interventions and Supports: An Illustration Using a Multiple Case Study
           Approach

      Abstract: Journal of Prevention and Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Bullying is a persistent problem in schools today, with developmental and socioemotional consequences. Multi-tiered interventions, such as School-wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (SW-PBIS), have been developed to decrease bullying by improving school climate. However, effects of SW-PBIS are stronger in elementary school than middle and high school, and effects are weaker for marginalized student groups. Aligning SW-PBIS with adolescent developmental needs and promoting systems change through youth participatory action research (YPAR) may improve the developmental fit of SW-PBIS for middle and high school students and strengthen its equity impact. In YPAR, youth conduct research on areas that are important to them and take data-driven action to improve their lives. In this paper, we utilize a qualitative instrumental multiple case study approach to identify similarities between YPAR and SW-PBIS and the value added of YPAR to SW-PBIS implementation. The two cases are from school districts chosen for their unique implementation of YPAR with SW-PBIS in middle and high schools. We used a general inductive approach to analyze field notes, documents, and interviews with school and district staff. We found that YPAR enhanced SW-PBIS implementation at the middle and high school level through alignment with adolescent developmental needs. Youth participatory action research also promoted equity through youth-led or youth–adult partnered assessment and data-driven decision-making, providing YPAR with the opportunity to improve the challenges SW-PBIS faces in decreasing disproportionality in academic outcomes for marginalized students. We provided examples to integrate YPAR with SW-PBIS at Tiers One through three.

      Abstract: Journal of Prevention and Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Mounting evidence suggests that a positive school climate can promote learning and well-being for students and reduce bullying and other forms of violence. However, many schools lack the capacity needed to engage in comprehensive school climate improvement. As part of a broader evaluation, this study examines implementation of a capacity-building framework for school climate improvement that emphasizes shared leadership and data-informed decision making. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with points of contact at schools receiving technical assistance and those that were allowed to work through the framework on their own. Interviews were also conducted with technical assistance specialists working with schools randomly assigned to receive the intervention. Analyses explored three key research questions: 1 What factors contributed to schools’ initial decision to participate in the project' 2 What factors were associated with sustained engagement' and 3 To what extent did schools build organizational capacity through participation' Organizational readiness, including both motivation and general organizational capacity, emerged as a key facilitator of sustained engagement. In particular, the presence of a champion was facilitative despite the framework’s emphasis on shared leadership. Staff turnover and competing priorities were identified as common challenges. With technical assistance, schools that were able to invest time and effort in the framework perceived growth in their capacity for shared leadership and data literacy. However, technical assistance specialists did not feel adequately prepared to support schools in implementing the framework. Our discussion focuses on implications for evidence-based technical assistance and implementing comprehensive climate improvement efforts in urban schools.

      Abstract: Journal of Prevention and Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Bullying is a critical pediatric public health problem; estimates across diverse methodologies generally indicate that roughly 36% of youth are bullied. Although policy initiatives aim to address the universal prevention of bullying and school-level secondary prevention programs aim to reduce the occurrence of bullying, tertiary prevention and intervention programs that mitigate the negative consequences experienced by victims of bullying remain an understudied need. The nature of bullying (that it occurs as events, leaves children feeling unsafe, and engenders emotional distress) and the association of bullying with posttraumatic stress symptoms among youth suggests that trauma treatment for bullying is promising. This manuscript presents the rationale for treating victims of bullying with trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), describes the components of TF-CBT, and discusses how to use TF-CBT specifically for bullying. Conducting research on treatment outcomes when using TF-CBT for bullying is critical to evaluate its efficacy and effectiveness in this group. Behavioral clinical trials would provide evidence for whether TF-CBT reduces the mental health harm experienced by youth victims of bullying. This evidence is an essential step to address the public health problem of bullying because the scientific literature currently does not have a well-established individual-level treatment for victims of bullying that mental health providers in diverse settings can deliver, despite individuals’ beliefs that healthcare providers are important sources of help for youth who have been bullied.

      Abstract: Journal of Prevention and Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      A gap in research on cyberbullying intervention strategies exists. The purpose of this study was to identify effective coping strategies for cyberbullying by interviewing cyberbullying survivors. The study used grounded theory qualitative methodology to allow data to fully emerge from participants’ perspectives. When analyzing the data, the researchers found that youth engaged in three types of coping: online coping, offline coping, and intrinsic coping. Online coping involved online interventions to stop active cyberbullying and prevent future cyberbullying; for example, youth limited who had access to their online accounts or blocked and reported cyberbullies. Offline coping included strategies that participants engaged in offline to minimize, tolerate, or cope with the effects of cyberbullying, such as talking about their experiences or reframing the way that they think about things. Finally, intrinsic coping described survivors’ personality traits or ways of being that aided them in developing such resilient coping strategies; for instance, possessing self-awareness and self-love contributed to survival. Accordingly, the findings contribute to the literature on effective coping strategies by confirming previously identified strategies, like online coping, and highlighting new ones, like intrinsic coping. The findings also help inform future counseling practices within schools.

      Abstract: Journal of Prevention and Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Recent studies have found that increasing numbers of students are experiencing cyberbullying during middle and high school. The current study examined how school psychologists and school counselors are involved in the prevention and intervention of cyberbullying, as well as what practices schools are implementing to address this issue. School counselors were more involved than school psychologists with cyberbullying prevention and intervention efforts. However, about half of school psychologists felt their skills were being underutilized and expressed a desire to be more involved in cyberbullying prevention and intervention efforts. A majority of participants reported that their schools are currently using reactive rather than proactive cyberbullying prevention and intervention strategies. Schools may benefit from examining their current cyberbullying prevention and intervention practices to ensure the use of proactive approaches as well as ensuring the utilization of all qualified staff to address this issue.

      Abstract: Journal of Prevention and Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      The sexual health of Black women has been compromised by racial and discriminatory healthcare practices from slavery through current medical and institutional barriers to care. This paper proposes a conceptual framework that identifies the link between stigma, gendered racism, and historical underpinnings that contribute to ineffective healthcare utilization of Black women diagnosed with the chronic sexually transmitted infection (STI), genital herpes. This paper also draws attention to different social factors that act as barriers to effective healthcare utilization and influence the health outcomes of Black women beyond individual factors. Using a socio-ecological framework, this paper reviews multi-level (i.e., individual, interpersonal, community, and institutional/policy) influences of the experience of genital herpes among Black women. Recommendations are provided to improve the ability of health systems and medical providers to deliver appropriate services to diverse populations, thereby improving healthcare utilization and reducing disparities for Black women.

      Abstract: Journal of Prevention and Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      COVID-19 is the new face of pandemic. Since the discovery of COVID-19 in December 2019 in Wuhan, China, it has spread all over the world and the numbers are increasing day by day. Anyone can be susceptible to this infection but children, older adults, pregnant women, and people with comorbidity are more vulnerable. The spread of coronavirus resulted in closures of schools, businesses, and public spaces worldwide and forced many communities to enact stay at home orders, causing stress to all irrespective of their age, gender, or socioeconomic status. The sudden and unexpected changes caused by the outbreak of coronavirus are overwhelming for both adults and children, causing stress and evoking negative emotions like fear, anxiety, and depression, among different populations. The aim of the paper is to ascertain how stress during this pandemic inculcates various psychological health issues like depression anxiety, OCD, panic behavior, and so on. Further, the paper is an attempt to identify different general as well as population specific coping strategies to reduce the stress level among individuals and prevent various stress-induced psychological disorders with reference to different theories and research articles.

      Abstract: Journal of Prevention and Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Persistent anxiety and depression may be particularly high in individuals with obesity. Increasing exercise reliably improves mood in the general population; however, it has rarely been tested specifically in adults with severe obesity. Volunteer participants (60% women) of a theory-based cognitive-behavioral weight-management treatment with severe obesity and elevated (highest 10% based on normative values) depression (N = 89) or anxiety (N = 60) were assessed at baseline and Month 6 on measures of exercise output (overall, and whether the equivalent of three moderate sessions/week [i.e., ≥ 15 METs/week] were completed), corresponding mood, and exercise barriers self-efficacy. There were significant improvements (large effect sizes) in exercise outputs and mood. Increase in exercise outputs was significantly associated with reduced depression (β = −.52) and anxiety (β = −.67) scores. At least 15 METs/week of exercise was reached by 61% and 60% of participants, respectively. Participants demonstrated significantly greater reductions in depression and anxiety scores over 6 months than those completing lower amounts. Change in exercise barriers self-efficacy significantly mediated the following: (a) the prediction of depression change by change in exercise output and (b) the prediction of change in anxiety by completion/non-completion of ≥ 15 METs/week of exercise. Findings suggest substantial benefits for depression and anxiety in adults with severe obesity under conditions of moderate exercise supported by a community-based cognitive-behavioral treatment. Because of its identified mediation properties, future behavioral treatments should seek to increase barriers self-efficacy to maximize effects on elevated depression and anxiety and possibly weight.

      Abstract: Journal of Prevention and Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Sexism and objectification present major challenges for mental and physical health among women. Scholars have called for research to identify mechanisms that underlie these associations as well as to delineate factors to target in prevention and intervention efforts. This study aimed to build on central tenets of objectification theory through its examination of sexist experiences in relation to body surveillance, body shame, depressive symptoms, and the health risk behaviors of substance use (i.e., alcohol and drug misuse) and sexual risk (i.e., condom use and number of sexual partners) among a large sample of college student women. We also examined whether body surveillance, body shame, and depressive symptoms would mediate theorized pathways extended to substance use and sexual risk. A sample of 505 full-time college student women ages 18–26 completed an online survey that assessed their health and behaviors. We used structural equation modeling to test mediation hypotheses. Results largely supported hypotheses, extended objectification theory to sexual risk, and expanded upon past research on objectification in relation to substance use. Notably, results of this study provided a more nuanced knowledge of how objectification may lead to increases in sexual risk when assessed by number of sexual partners (but not condom use). Further research is warranted to understand potential explanatory pathways between sexism, objectification, and sexual risk. Findings can inform prevention and intervention efforts to target body surveillance, body shame, and depressive symptoms to attempt to reduce the burden of sexist experiences on women’s health.

      Abstract: Journal of Prevention and Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      The goal of the current study was to examine whether contextual characteristics of a school are related to student interventions in bullying. Specifically, participants reported their perceptions of how teachers responded to bullying, school climate, and the promotion of social emotional wellness. The study included 390 eighth to twelfth grade students from the Southeastern region of the United States. The confirmatory factor analysis revealed good model fit and measurement invariance across sex was established. Structural models indicated that for boys, perceptions of social emotional learning (SEL) promotion were positively and significantly related to their intervention in bullying. For girls, both teacher interventions and perceptions of SEL promotion were positively related to their intervention in bullying. Results suggest that characteristics of the school are important for promoting interventions in bullying among high school students.
