The applicability of eye-controlled highlighting to the field of visual searching.

Aust J Psychol 2018 Sep 26;70(3):294-301. Epub 2018 Feb 26.

Center for Psychological Sciences Zhejiang University Hangzhou China.

Objective: With the increasing amount of information presented on current human-computer interfaces, eye-controlled highlighting has been proposed, as a new display technique, to optimise users' task performances. However, it is unknown to what extent the eye-controlled highlighting display facilitates visual search performance. The current study examined the facilitative effect of eye-controlled highlighting display technique on visual search with two major attributes of visual stimuli: stimulus type and the visual similarity between targets and distractors.

Sexual behaviour in early adolescence: a cross-national comparison of Australian and United States youth.

Aust J Psychol 2017 Mar 16;69(1):3-11. Epub 2016 Mar 16.

Social Development Research Group, School of Social Work, University of Washington.

Objective: This study used matched samples from schools in the states of Victoria, Australia and Washington, United States (US), to compare sexual behaviour in early adolescence. It was hypothesised that the contrasting dominant policy objectives of harm minimisation in Australia and abstinence in the US would result in state differences for markers of sexual risk, mirroring prior cross-national findings in substance use.

Method: A two-stage cluster sampling approach was used to recruit students from the two states. Read More

Early maltreatment effects on adolescent attention control to non-emotional and emotional distractors.

Aust J Psychol 2016 09 18;68(3):143-153. Epub 2016 Aug 18.

Department of Psychology King's College London London UK.

Objective: Early maltreatment increases lifetime risk of psychopathology. Emerging models suggest that exposure to maltreatment leads to changes in cognitive processes associated with the processing of threat, including processes of selective attention. Existing data may be interpreted to suggest that maltreatment is associated with an automatic attentional engagement with threatening cues, or that maltreatment is associated with generally poorer attention control.

Emotional working memory training as an online intervention for adolescent anxiety and depression: A randomised controlled trial.

Aust J Psychol 2016 09 1;68(3):228-238. Epub 2016 Jul 1.

Department of Psychology University of Amsterdam Amsterdam The Netherlands.

Objective: Anxiety and depression are highly prevalent disorders in adolescence. They are associated with deficits in working memory (WM), which also appears to increase rumination, worry, and negative mood. WM training, especially in an emotional context, might help in reducing or preventing these disorders. Read More

Appraisal and coping styles account for the effects of temperament on preadolescent adjustment.

Aust J Psychol 2014 Jun;66(2):122-129

University of Washington.

Temperament, appraisal, and coping are known to underlie emotion regulation, yet less is known about how these processes relate to each other across time. We examined temperamental fear, frustration, effortful control, and impulsivity, positive and threat appraisals, and active and avoidant coping as processes underpinning the emotion regulation of pre-adolescent children managing stressful events. Appraisal and coping styles were tested as mediators of the longitudinal effects of temperamental emotionality and self-regulation on adjustment using a community sample (=316) of preadolescent children (8-12 years at T1) studied across one year.

Coping and Emotion Regulation from Childhood to Early Adulthood: Points of Convergence and Divergence.

Aust J Psychol 2014 Jun;66(2):71-81

Vanderbilt University.

Processes of coping with stress and the regulation of emotion reflect basic aspects of development and play an important role in models of risk for psychopathology and the development of preventive interventions and psychological treatments. However, research on these two constructs has been represented in two separate and disconnected bodies of work. We examine possible points of convergence and divergence between these constructs with regard to definitions and conceptualization, research methods and measurement, and interventions to prevent and treat psychopathology.

Contributions of Socialization of Coping to Physiological Responses to Stress.

Aust J Psychol 2014 Jun 27;66(2):102-109. Epub 2014 Mar 27.

University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.

The messages mothers communicate to their children about coping may play an important role in children's emotional development by shaping children's responses to stress. Building on prior research demonstrating associations between maternal socialization of coping (SOC) and children's self-reported coping and emotional functioning (Abaied & Rudolph, 2010; 2011), we examined the contribution of SOC to children's physiological responses to stress. Mothers completed a measure of SOC with peer victimization. Read More

Does school suspension affect subsequent youth nonviolent antisocial behavior? A longitudinal study of students in Victoria, Australia and Washington State, United States.

Aust J Psychol 2013 Dec;65(4):236-249

Social Development Research Group, School of Social Work, University of Washington, 9725 3 Ave. NE, Suite 401, Seattle, WA 98115.

School suspension has been not only associated with negative behaviours but is predictive of future poor outcomes. The current study investigates a) whether school suspension is a unique predictor of youth nonviolent antisocial behaviour (NVAB) relative to other established predictors, and b) whether the predictors of NVAB are similar in Australia and the United States (U.S. Read More

Predictors of career commitment and employment level of tertiary-educated Indonesian women.

Authors:
W D Mansoer T P Oei

Aust J Psychol 1999 Apr;51(1):29-36

This study investigated the relationships among education, liberal sex-role values, gender-role orientation (masculinity/femininity), career commitment, and employment level for a sample of 302 married Indonesian women. All participants were tertiary educated and currently employed either as teachers in tertiary institutions or as managers in government or private enterprise. Multiple regression analysis revealed that liberal sex-role values and masculinity were significant predictors of career commitment, whereas education was the only variable to significantly predict employment level.
