  • Quantifying Healthy Days Lost to the Non-Medical Use of Prescription Drugs
           (NMUPD) among a Sample of College Students
    • Abstract: NMUPD remains a public health concern in the United States, especially among college students, and is associated with numerous poor health and economic consequences. This study aimed to quantify healthy days lost to the NMU of antidepressants, painkillers, sedatives, and stimulants using the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s “Healthy Days” index. A web-based survey was sent to a random, stratified sample of full-time students ages 18–24 at a large Mid-Atlantic university (N = 494). Healthy Days were calculated among demographics and for users and non-users of each prescription drug class by adding the number of poor physical and mental health days in the 30 days and subtracting the total from 30. Females reported significantly (P < .0001) fewer healthy days (N = 208) compared with males (N = 265). Significant healthy days differences were also detected between individuals who reported the NMU of antidepressants (P < .001) compared to those who did not for both males and females and for NMU of any drug (P < .01) for females only, but not for painkillers, sedatives, or stimulants. Based on our results we estimate, on average, females report 57 fewer healthy days per year than males. Furthermore, we estimate females lose an additional 34 days each year owing to the NMU of any drug and an additional 62 days for the NMU antidepressants. For males engaged in the NMU of antidepressants, we estimate the loss of 82 days each year. Results indicate significant impairment for the NMU of antidepressants and for the NMU of any drug, representing a critical barrier toward reaching Healthy People 2030 goals.

  • The Significance of Family Structure in Internalizing (Anxious/Depressed)
           and Externalizing (Aggressive/Delinquent) Problems among Chinese
    • Abstract: The present pioneering study investigated the differences across various types of family structure among Chinese adolescents with proactive and reactive aggression. It aimed at providing frontline social workers and family therapists with inspirations for designing suitable interventions for adolescents with specific subtypes of aggressive behavior from different family structure backgrounds. After completing an online survey including the Reactive and Proactive Aggression Questionnaire (RPQ) and the subscales of the Child Behavior Checklist – Youth Self-report (CBCL-YSR) on aggressive behavior, delinquent behavior, and anxious/depressed symptom, 520 out of 13,338 Chinese adolescents aged 11 to 18 were randomly selected and stratified based on the types of family structure (intact family, single father family, single mother family, stepfather family, and stepmother family). Expectedly, boys elicited more proactive aggression, delinquent behaviors, and aggressive behaviors than girls. Besides, significant cross-structural differences were found between children from stepmother family, who showed more proactive aggression, anxious/depressed symptoms, aggressive behaviors, and delinquent behaviors, and those from intact family regardless of gender. The interaction effects between gender and family structure were significant for reactive aggression, anxious/depressed behavior, and aggressive behavior. An interaction effect showed boys from stepmother families were more reactively aggressive than those from intact families. In addition, more anxious/depressed symptoms were found in boys from stepmother family than those from intact and single mother families. In conclusion, the impacts of family structure on proactive aggression and delinquent behavior are not gender specific, but the impacts on reactive aggression and anxious/depressed behavior are only specific to boys.

  • Developing Social Entrepreneurship as an Intervention to Enhance
           Disadvantaged Young People’s Sense of Self-Worth and Career Competence
           in Hong Kong
    • Abstract: This is the first empirical research in Hong Kong to examine the impact of social entrepreneurship training on disadvantaged young peoples’ career competence including their self-perceived employability, entrepreneurial knowledge, skills and intent, and their psychosocial development including their self-esteem, resilience, and career-linked self-efficacy. The subjects of this research were in-school youths and school drop-outs who joined the three waves of “Social-Up Youth Entrepreneurship Programme” including social entrepreneurship training (T1), internship (T2), and a pre-incubation project funded by a Charities Trust in Hong Kong. This research included a quantitative part, that is, questionnaires, and qualitative part, that is, focus group and individual interviews. At the time of data analysis, 100 disadvantaged young people joined the program at the baseline measure (T0). Only 77 and 31 could be matched and sufficient enough for data analysis at T1 and T2, respectively. The results demonstrated that social entrepreneurship training is positive and promising to enhance disadvantaged young peoples’ sense of self-worth and resilience, their entrepreneurial knowledge and skills, and overall self-perceived employability. The impact of the interactive and experiential-oriented social entrepreneurship training was the most significant. The impact of the internship was influenced by the extra burdens added to in-school youths. Because of its potential positive effects, further examination is required. Young people were found to have weak proactivity and flexibility in work, thinking, and interpersonal and communication skills, and the early introduction of curriculum-based youth entrepreneurship training in secondary schools is highly recommended.

  • Predictors to Happiness in Primary Students: Positive Relationships or
           Academic Achievement
    • Abstract: This study aimed to examine the role of positive relationships and academic achievement in predicting student well-being, i.e. subjective happiness. This study employed a longitudinal design with two waves of data collection on a sample of 786 primary school students in Hong Kong. Students completed questionnaires on parent-child relationship, teacher-student relationship, peer relationship, academic achievement, and happiness at the beginning and end of the school year. Path analysis was used for data analysis. The results indicated that Time 1 parent-child relationship and peer relationship were associated with Time 2 academic achievement, after controlling for Time 1 academic achievement. However, only Time 1 parent-child relationship was predictive of Time 2 happiness. Time 2 academic achievement was a mediator between Time 1 parent-child relationship and peer relationship and Time 2 happiness. Furthermore, girls reported higher levels of academic achievement when they perceived better peer relationship than did boys, and girls were happier when they had higher levels of academic achievement than were boys. The results suggested the need to put in place strategies to enhance parent-child relationship, peer relationship, and a harmonious classroom.

  • The Contribution of Sex to Quality of Life in Modern Societies
    • Abstract: Sexual behavior is a core activity not only for our genes, but also for individual happiness. It is therefore important to assess how this aspect of life functions in industrialized nations. Adopting the idea that society should aim at maximizing happiness, the question is whether the present situation is optimal, or if we should strive toward cultural changes that may improve the impact of sex. Sex is associated with some of the strongest rewards the brain has to offer, and consequently should serve to improve quality of life. There are, however, numerous pitfalls in that sex easily elicits negative emotions. Certain aspects of sexuality may reflect what is referred to as a ‘disease of modernity’; that is, the present environment is causing an increase in the prevalence of sex-related misery. The text use both an evolutionary and a bioecological perspective to understand human behavior. Biological (nature) and ecological (environment or nurture) factors are considered in order to assess how to improve the impact of sex on quality of life.

  • Cultural Participation and Subjective Well-Being of Indigenous in Latin
    • Abstract: In general populations, to several scholars, cultural participation (i.e., participation in cultural and artistic activities) contributes to subjective well-being. Nevertheless, although the mentioned association in Indigenous has been suggested to be related to health, general well-being, and cultural identity, it has been usually left aside in research. Therefore, this manuscript aims to explore the connection between cultural participation and subjective well-being of Indigenous individuals in the context of Latin America. Using the 2013 Latinobarometer dataset (n = 3337), an ordinal regression analysis was run. Results suggest that, reading books, reading news, attending theater, and visiting heritage places show a positive association with life satisfaction (a dimension of subjective well-being); while attending concerts and participating in community celebrations do not report one. These outcomes suggest that participation in cultural and artistic activities can be related to individual and community well-being of Indigenous, and, in consequence, to subjective well-being. Besides, they indicate the need for adequate cultural policies to fulfill the achievement of participation and engagement in cultural life, as well as the review of the activities that potentially bring access to the cultural rights of Indigenous populations.

  • The Age and Gender Effect on Four Forms of Peer Victimization among
           Chinese Children and Adolescents
    • Abstract: This study is the first to examine the effects of age and gender on different forms of peer victimization among local Chinese schoolchildren in Hong Kong. The cross-sectional study recruited a sample of 8604 schoolchildren aged between 8 and 16 from 24 primary (elementary) and secondary (middle) schools in Hong Kong. The Multidimensional Peer Victimization Scale was used to measure how often the participants had experienced physical and verbal victimization, social manipulation, and attacks on property during the last school term. The participants were divided into three age groups (8–10, 11–13, 14–16) based on the average ages of senior primary, junior secondary, and senior secondary school students. Two-way MANOVA and subsequent two-way ANOVAs were used to analyze the data. Physical victimization and attacks on property were found to decrease with age. Across the age groups, boys were more likely than girls to experience physical and verbal victimization, but not social manipulation. However, the gender × age group interaction effects were insignificant. The findings suggest that educators and helping professionals should consider providing gender-specific anti-bullying programs in schools.

  • From Teachers’ Work Engagement to Pupils’ Positive Affect: a Weekly
           Diary Study on the Role of Pupils’ Autonomous Motivation
    • Abstract: The main purpose of the present study was to investigate whether there is a crossover effect from teacher’s general (trait-level) work engagement to their pupils’ weekly positive affect in school and to examine whether pupils’ weekly autonomous motivation for school functions as an underlying mechanism that may explain this crossover effect. Building upon the self-determination theory and the emotion contagion theory, we argue that teachers’ general work engagement can be a strong resource for pupils, which can foster their psychological investment and interest in school-related activities, skills, and tasks (i.e. autonomous motivation), and, in turn, their positive affect. To test our hypotheses, we employed a weekly diary methodology by following 50 teachers and their 916 pupils in six different countries for three consecutive work weeks, which yielded 2735 reports from pupils and their teachers. The results of multilevel modeling provided support for the shypothesised research model. When teachers were generally more engaged in their work, their pupils reported more weekly positive affect in school, and this positive crossover effect was mediated by pupils’ weekly autonomous motivation for school. These findings extend current literature by revealing the potential underlying mechanism that can explain how teachers’ work engagement transmits to pupils’ positive affect in school.

  • Family Conflicts, Anxiety and Depressive Symptoms, and Suicidal Ideation
           of Chinese Adolescents in Hong Kong
    • Abstract: The present study examined the relationship between parent–adolescent conflict and adolescent suicidal ideation in Hong Kong, China. Depression and anxiety were investigated as possible mediators of this relationship. A cross-sectional survey was conducted, with 338 valid self-administered questionnaires completed by adolescents. The results indicated that parent–adolescent conflict is significantly associated with suicidal ideation among adolescents in Hong Kong. This effect was mediated by those adolescents who suffered from depression and anxiety. To decrease Chinese adolescent suicidal ideation resulting from parent–adolescent conflict and depression, prevention intervention is suggested, such as parenting programmes and more help for adolescents who have symptoms of depression.

  • Development of the Quality of Life in Youth Services Scale (QOLYSS):
           Content-Related Validity Evidence Based on Adolescents’ and Expert
           Reviewers’ Perspectives
    • Abstract: Despite increased interest in the quality of life of younger populations, the quality of life of youngsters in vulnerable situations such as those in youth services remains under-researched. To gain insight into critical ingredients for understanding and enhancing the lives of these youngsters, appropriate assessment tools are needed. This study focuses on providing content-related validity evidence for the new Quality of Life in Youth Services Scale (QOLYSS) for adolescents in youth services. A sequential approach to item generation, refinement, and evaluation is presented. The initial item bank is devised by means of a thorough literature search and evaluated against findings from qualitative research among adolescents in youth services. In addition, a three-round international expert panel (N = 5) is convened to align identified items to the adopted quality of life framework, and to provide evidence on domain representation and relevance. Last, input is collected from adolescents in youth services themselves. More specifically, 20 group discussions and 13 individual interview sessions are organized to support 21 adolescents in critically assessing the content of the item bank on level of relevance, clarity, and coverage. The expert panel resulted in a provisional scale of 262 unique items that, based on adolescents’ input, is further reduced to a set of 88 items. Adolescents omitted items because of divergent reasons (e.g., content-overlap, self-evident character of the items, level of irrelevance). Explanatory qualitative information on the item selection process is provided. This study provides a detailed understanding of the content-related validity evidence of a new multidimensional quality of life scale. Moreover, it highlights the importance of acknowledging youngsters as critical partner in quality of life research and assessment.

  • Cultural Adaptation, Translation and Validation of Tuberculosis Specific
           Health Related Quality of Life Measuring Functional Assessment of Chronic
           Illness Therapy Tuberculosis (FACIT-TB) Scale in Sri Lanka
    • Abstract: The aim of the present study was to culturally adapt, translate and validate the functional assessment of chronic illness therapy tuberculosis (FACIT-TB) scale with a view to assess health related quality of life among pulmonary tuberculosis patients in Sri Lanka. The cultural adaptation was performed by Delphi method. The translation into Sinhala (the local Sri Lankan dialect) was carried out through forward–backward translation method by five translators. A multidisciplinary team of experts assessed the Sinhala FACIT-TB scale for its content validity. The construct validity, the reliability and the acceptability of the scale were determined by conducting a validation study among 225 pulmonary tuberculosis patients. The confirmatory factor analysis technique was used to assess the construct validity. The reliability was assessed through internal consistency by Cronbach’s alpha and test re- test reliability by intraclass correlation coefficient after one week of assessment. The FACIT-TB showed adequate content validity. The confirmatory factor analysis yielded high fit indices with the original five factor model of FACIT-TB: Root Mean Square Error of Approximation (RMSEA) =0.05, Standardized Root Mean Square Residual (SRMSR) =0.07, Comparative Fit Index (CFI) =0.94 and Non –Normal Fit Index (NNFI) =0.94. Reliability showed high internal consistency with Cronbach’s alpha values exceeding the Nunnally’s criteria of 0.7 and all factors of the scale showed high test-retest reliability with intra-class correlation coefficient exceeding 0.7. Overall the FACIT-TB Sinhala version showed adequate validity to assess health related quality of life among pulmonary tuberculosis patients in Sri Lanka.

    • Abstract: Using the Global Behaviors and Perceptions in the COVID-19 Pandemic dataset covering 108,918 respondents from 178 countries, the paper examines the determinants of public trust in governments during the COVID-19. It is found that older and healthy people trust more to their governments. Education is negatively related to trust in governments. The results are robust to consider different measures of trust in government as well as including various controls, such as precautionary behaviors, first-order beliefs, second-order beliefs, and the COVID-19 prevalence in the country. The findings are also valid for countries at different stages of economic development as well to varying levels of globalization, institutional quality, and freedom of the press.

  • The Impact of Childhood Emotional Abuse on Adolescents’ Subjective
           Happiness: the Mediating Role of Emotional Intelligence
    • Abstract: Subjective happiness has been considered a key indicator of adolescents’ healthy development. The present study aimed at identifying the impact of childhood emotional abuse on adolescents’ subjective happiness and the possible role of emotional intelligence as a mediating variable. Using convenience sampling, a cross-sectional survey was conducted with 9 secondary schools in Hong Kong, China. Participants included a total of 1710 grade 8 to grade 9 secondary school students. The mean age was 13.6, and 61.2% were boys. Measures included child abuse and trauma, emotional intelligence, and subjective happiness. The results showed that childhood emotional abuse in adolescents’ childhood is a significant risk factor for subjective happiness. Emotional intelligence has a partial mediation effect on the relationship between childhood emotional abuse and subjective happiness. It is noteworthy that parenting practices in childhood have a significant impact on children’s happiness even after a period of time. It is suggested that students’ emotional intelligence be enhanced to increase their subjective happiness. Although the conventional parenting style may be rooted in Chinese culture, a paradigm shift in parenting seems to be needed for Chinese parents. Efforts should be made to promote appropriate parenting methods and emotional intelligence in Chinese societies. Limitations of the study and recommendations for future research are also discussed.

  • Quality of Life among Adolescents in Hong Kong: General and
           Gender-Specific Effects of Self-Efficacy and Mindfulness
    • Abstract: This study investigated the effects of self-efficacy and mindfulness on the quality of life of Chinese adolescents. The effects of gender, age, and perceived family functioning were also examined. This cross-sectional study was based on a sample of 462 Hong Kong adolescents 11 to 18 years of age. Self-reported measures were used to collect data on the participants’ quality of life, family functioning, self-efficacy, and mindfulness. Although boys were found to have an overall better quality of life than girls, except in the social domains in which girls tend to have an advantage, none of the differences were statistically significant. The age effect among boys was insignificant but girls aged 12 or below had higher quality of life in total score and in emotional and school domains, when compared with girl aged 16 or above. Family functioning was a significant predictor of quality of life but the effect was relatively small. Self-efficacy and mindfulness were strong predictors of adolescent quality of life but the two independent variables had unique effects in different domains quality of life and the relationships between the variables were gender specific. The limitations of the study and the implications of the findings are discussed. (198 words).
