Fear of Cancer Recurrence and Inhibited Disclosure: Testing the Social-Cognitive Processing Model in Couples Coping With Breast Cancer.

Ann Behav Med 2020 Jul 1. Epub 2020 Jul 1.

Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences, University of Delaware, Newark, DE, USA.

Background: Withholding cancer-related concerns from one's partner (protective buffering) and feeling that one's partner is inaccessible or unresponsive to such disclosure (social constraints) are two interpersonal interaction patterns that separately have been linked to poorer adjustment to cancer.

Purpose: Guided by the Social-Cognitive Processing Model, we examined the joint effects of social constraints and protective buffering on fear of cancer recurrence (FCR) in survivors and spouses. Social constraints and protective buffering were hypothesized to emerge as independent predictors of higher FCR. Read More

Lung Cancer Stigma: Does Smoking History Matter?

Ann Behav Med 2020 Jun;54(7):535-540

Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, 641 Lexington Ave., 7th Floor, New York, NY, USA.

Background: Lung cancer patients commonly report stigma, often attributing it to the well-established association of smoking as the leading preventable cause. Theory and research suggest that patients' smoking history may differentiate patients' experience of lung cancer stigma. However, there is inconsistent evidence whether lung cancer stigma varies by patients' smoking history, owing to limitations in the literature. Read More

Direct and Indirect Relationships Between the Built Environment and Individual-Level Perceptions of Physical Activity: A Systematic Review.

Ann Behav Med 2020 Jun;54(7):495-509

Department of Sport and Physical Education, Hong Kong Baptist University, Hong Kong, China.

Background: Socioecological models highlight the potential direct and indirect effects of multiple levels of influence in explaining physical activity (PA). Social cognitive theories, however, position individual cognitions as the mediator of external factors such as the built environment when explaining PA.

Purpose: To appraise the evidence for direct and indirect associations between the built environment and social cognition to predict PA. Read More
