Moderators of the efficacy of a web-based stress management intervention for college students.

J Couns Psychol 2019 Apr 18. Epub 2019 Apr 18.

Department of Psychology.

High levels of stress are common among college students. Web-based interventions may be one way to teach students stress management skills. Although previous research has demonstrated the overall efficacy of web-based stress management interventions, little attention has been paid to who might benefit most from these interventions.

J Couns Psychol 2019 Apr 18. Epub 2019 Apr 18.

Department of Counseling and Educational Psychology.

The development and initial validation of a client-rated measure of therapist cultural comfort (the Therapist Cultural Comfort Scale [TCCS]) is reported. The first phase of the study involved content validation of the initial pool of items via consultation with (a) focus groups of doctoral student therapists and (b) experts in the field of multicultural counseling and psychotherapy. A 56-item pool generated during this phase, together with instruments used to gauge convergent and incremental validity, were administered to a community adult sample of current psychotherapy clients ( = 889).

Prediction of treatment outcome in psychotherapy by patient initial symptom distress profiles.

J Couns Psychol 2019 Apr 18. Epub 2019 Apr 18.

Department of Behavioral Science and Learning.

Understanding how different groups of patients change at different rates is important for treatment selection, planning and evaluation. This study aimed to assess whether an approach to classifying patients on the basis of initial symptom distress profiles (ISDPs) derived from a self-rated questionnaire measuring psychological distress may be useful in predicting treatment response. The Clinical Outcome in Routine Evaluation-Outcome Measure were collected from 1,095 first line mental health service patients ( [] age = 37. Read More

A qualitative investigation of beliefs about work-related crises in the United States.

J Couns Psychol 2019 Apr 18. Epub 2019 Apr 18.

Department of Guidance and Psychological Counseling.

Globalization, technological advancements, and macroeconomic forces have created significant challenges for working in the United States and other countries. Recent crises about working include long-term unemployment/underemployment and the rise of precarious work, which negatively impact individuals' mental health and well-being. To fully understand the nature and impact of these problems, it is essential to give voice to the people whose lives are affected by the work-related crises. Read More

The meaning of therapists' hope for their clients: A phenomenological study.

J Couns Psychol 2019 Apr 15. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

Department of Educational Psychology.

Hope is often identified as a central process in psychotherapy, with researchers supporting links between clients' hope, symptom distress, and process variables. However, this body of literature is yet to specifically ask what it means for psychotherapists to have hope for their clients. Our purpose, with this descriptive phenomenological study, was to understand the meaning of therapists' hope for their clients. Read More

The development and validation of the Emotional Cultivation Scale: An East Asian cultural perspective.

J Couns Psychol 2019 Apr 15. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

Department of Senior Citizen Service Business.

Research on emotion regulation in East Asian children and adolescents is limited. One obstacle hindering the development of emotion regulation for East Asian children and adolescents is the lack of a culturally sensitive measure. To fill this gap, we have developed and validated the Emotional Cultivation Scale using samples of Taiwanese children and adolescents. Read More

Masculine gender role stress and self-stigma of seeking help: The moderating roles of self-compassion and self-coldness.

J Couns Psychol 2019 Apr 15. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

Department of Psychology, University of South Alabama.

Many college men express stigma of seeking psychological help, possibly due to masculine gender role socialization proscribing help seeking. However, not every man who buys into restrictive masculine roles expresses self-stigma of seeking help, suggesting the presence of potential moderating variables. The present study examined self-compassion and self-coldness as potential moderating variables on the associations between men's masculine gender role stress and self-stigma of seeking help.

Surviving and thriving: Voices of Latina/o engineering students at a Hispanic serving institution.

J Couns Psychol 2019 Apr 15. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

Department of Educational, School, and Counseling Psychology, University of Missouri.

This study examined factors that played a role in Latina/o undergraduate students' persistence in engineering at a Hispanic serving institution (HSI; N = 10) using the consensual qualitative research method (CQR; Hill, Thompson, & Williams, 1997). Data analyses resulted in five domains: institutional conditions, additive intersectional burdens, personal and cultural wealth, coping skills, and engineering identity. Participants described how they persisted in the face of stressors, citing specific coping skills they developed over time as well as general personal and cultural strengths they carried with them into their pursuit of engineering.

Decent work and well-being among low-income Turkish employees: Testing the psychology of working theory.

J Couns Psychol 2019 Apr;66(3):317-327

Department of Counseling, Developmental, and Educational Psychology, Boston College.

People from lower social classes experience significant difficulties in many life domains including work, yet their work lives continue to be understudied in psychology. This study examined the applicability of the Psychology of Working Theory (PWT), which emphasizes the role of socioeconomic constraints in shaping work and well-being outcomes, in a non-Western, collectivist cultural framework. Specifically, we tested the associations of social class with work volition and career adaptability in predicting decent work and job and life satisfaction with a sample of 401 low-income Turkish employees.

Heterosexist harassment and social cognitive variables as predictors of sexual minority college students' academic satisfaction and persistence intentions.

J Couns Psychol 2019 Apr;66(3):308-316

Department of Counseling, Special and Higher Education, University of Maryland, College Park.

This study examined social-cognitive and cultural predictors of academic satisfaction in a sample of 731 sexual minority college students. In addition to predictors drawn from the social-cognitive model of domain satisfaction (Lent, 2004), we included heterosexist harassment (perceived animosity toward nonheterosexuality) as a culture-specific predictor, with the potential to predict sexual minority students' academic satisfaction and desire to remain at their current college campuses. The findings indicated that the model fit the data well and accounted for substantial amounts of the variance in academic satisfaction and persistence intentions. Read More

Health disparities between genderqueer, transgender, and cisgender individuals: An extension of minority stress theory.

J Couns Psychol 2019 Mar 21. Epub 2019 Mar 21.

Department of Psychology.

Interpersonal, social, and structural stressors have been identified as key elements that explain health disparities between transgender and cisgender individuals. However, most of this research has focused on binary transgender individuals or has not differentiated between binary and nonbinary individuals; little research has examined the experiences of minority stress or health of those identifying outside the gender binary. Guided by intersectionality and drawing on a sample of 3,568 college students from the Center for Collegiate Mental Health's 2012-2016 database-of whom 892 identified outside the gender binary-we conducted analyses of demographic and outcome measures administered in participants' 1st counseling appointment, examining differences between cisgender, transgender, and genderqueer individuals.

College alcohol beliefs: Measurement invariance, mean differences, and correlations with alcohol use outcomes across sociodemographic groups.

Authors:
P Priscilla Lui

J Couns Psychol 2019 Feb 18. Epub 2019 Feb 18.

Southern Methodist University.

Undergraduate students who believe that alcohol plays a central role in college life are prone to drink more frequently, in larger quantity, and experience more drinking problems. The College Life Alcohol Salience Scale (CLASS) measures individuals' college-related alcohol beliefs but has been used predominantly in Euro American and freshman student samples. Emerging research suggests mean differences in college alcohol beliefs by gender and years in college, and measurement nonequivalence across nations. Read More

J Couns Psychol 2019 Apr 18;66(3):280-307. Epub 2019 Feb 18.

Department of Psychology, University of Minnesota.

The protean/boundaryless career concepts refer to people becoming more self-directed and flexible in managing their careers in response to societal shifts in work arrangements. A sizable literature has emerged on protean/boundaryless career orientations/preferences (PBCO). Questions remain, however, about the structure of PBCO and whether they predict important criteria.

Department of Counseling and Clinical Psychology.

Even within counseling psychology's multicultural literature, attention to persons of Arab descent remains limited. Despite counseling psychologists' goal of becoming more multiculturally proficient, the dearth of systematic empirical research on the counseling of Arab Americans is glaring. This exploratory consensual qualitative research (CQR) investigation analyzed interview data from 11 Arab American women to explore their experiences at the intersections of ethnic identity and gender.

The development and initial validation of need satisfaction scales within the psychology of working theory.

J Couns Psychol 2019 Mar 4;66(2):195-209. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

College of Education.

The psychology of working theory (PWT; Duffy, Blustein, Diemer, & Autin, 2016) provides a framework to understand predictors and outcomes of decent work. Given that basic need satisfaction is hypothesized to be a primary mediator in the link between decent work and well-being, it is essential to have valid and reliable scales that are consistent with the PWT framework. In the current study, we developed the Work Needs Satisfaction Scales, a set of instruments designed to measure satisfaction of survival, social contribution, and self-determination needs from a PWT perspective.

Investigating the impact of early alliance on predicting subjective change at posttreatment: An evidence-based souvenir of overlooked clinical perspectives.

J Couns Psychol 2019 Jan 31. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Department of Psychology, University of Zürich.

Despite meta-analytic evidence showing that alliance is associated with posttreatment outcomes, several open questions still remain regarding this relation. First, we investigate whether (or not) the progressive aggregation of early alliance assessments increases the alliance-outcome relation across 2 distress and 4 subjective change measures. Second, we investigate whether the alliance-outcome relations using subjective change measures are independent from intake distress and early response. Read More

Development of the Self-Forgiveness Dual-Process Scale.

J Couns Psychol 2018 Nov;65(6):715-726

Mental Health Service, San Francisco VA Healthcare System.

Progress in the scientific study of self-forgiveness reveals a need for (a) integration of the extant self-forgiveness literature with general psychological theory, (b) development of measures that reflect nuanced conceptualizations of self-forgiveness, (c) better understanding of the impact of self-forgiveness on personal and interpersonal functioning, and (d) development of evidence-based clinical applications of self-forgiveness. Accordingly, we conceptualized self-forgiveness within the framework of Social Cognitive Theory and developed the Self-Forgiveness Dual-Process Scale to assess value reorientation (VRO) and esteem restoration (ERS) following perceived interpersonal offense. In Study 1, we identified the hypothesized 2-factor structure in a sample of university students (N = 191). Read More

Reducing threat responses to help-seeking information: Influences of self-affirmations and reassuring information.

J Couns Psychol 2019 Apr 15;66(3):375-383. Epub 2018 Oct 15.

Department of Psychology, Iowa State University.

This research was an examination of the effects of two types of self-affirmation interventions in reducing threat responses associated with receiving help-seeking information. Help-seeking information can be threatening to one's positive self-perceptions and people may avoid seeking such information to protect themselves. There is evidence that reflecting on personal values (values affirmation) may bolster self-integrity and mitigate this avoidance, and it is possible that reflecting on safe, close social relationships (social affirmation) could exhibit similar effects.

Secrets in psychotherapy: For better or worse?

J Couns Psychol 2019 Jan 8;66(1):70-82. Epub 2018 Oct 8.

Department of Counseling, Higher Education, and Special Education, University of Maryland, College Park.

We investigated how concealment and disclosure of secrets, two related but distinct processes, unfolded over the course of open-ended therapy for 39 clients and 9 therapists, using hierarchical linear modeling to identify longitudinal patterns and investigate relationships with working alliance and session quality. Results indicated that over the course of therapy, 85% of clients disclosed at least one secret and 41% concealed at least one secret, with 18% of sessions including a disclosure and 4% of sessions including concealment. Over time, clients were less likely to disclose secrets, and the secrets they chose to conceal were rated as less significant. Read More

The development and evaluation of a brief form of the Normative Male Alexithymia Scale (NMAS-BF).

J Couns Psychol 2019 Mar 4;66(2):224-233. Epub 2018 Oct 4.

Department of Educational Psychology.

The current study extended prior work on the Normative Male Alexithymia Scale (NMAS), a unidimensional measure of some men's limitations in expressing emotion that results from gender-based socialization informed by the masculine norm of restrictive emotionality (RE). Data ( = 505 men) were from Amazon Mechanical Turk participants. First, dimensionality was reassessed using exploratory factor analysis, which supported the unidimensional structure. Read More

J Couns Psychol 2019 Jan 13;66(1):1-13. Epub 2018 Sep 13.

Department of Educational Psychology, University of Nebraska - Lincoln.

The present study used a psychology of working theory (PWT) framework to test the direct and indirect relations of perceived social status and transgender and gender nonconforming (TGNC) marginalization (i.e., victimization, nonaffirmation of gender identity, negative expectations for the future) with work volition, overqualification, and vocational and emotional well-being outcomes (i.

The development and validation of the Contemporary Critical Consciousness Measure II.

J Couns Psychol 2018 Oct 30;65(5):539-555. Epub 2018 Aug 30.

Department of Counseling, Higher Education, and Special Education, University of Maryland, College Park.

Critical consciousness (CC) has been heralded as an antidote to oppression. Developed by the Brazilian educator, Paulo Freire, CC represents the process by which individuals gain awareness of societal inequities and subsequently take action to dismantle the systems and institutions that sustain them. Empirically supported instruments intended to assess this important construct have only been recently introduced to the literature and have focused specifically on racism, classism, and heterosexism.

The effects of routine outcome monitoring (ROM) on therapy outcomes in the course of an implementation process: A randomized clinical trial.

J Couns Psychol 2018 Oct 16;65(5):641-652. Epub 2018 Aug 16.

Department of Mental Health, Faculty of Medicine, Norwegian University of Science and Technology.

This study investigated the effects of the Partners for Change Outcome Management System (PCOMS) in adult outpatient treatment at a hospital-based mental health clinic. It also investigated whether the effects differed with the timing of the treatment within a 4-year implementation period, with clients' initial distress levels, and between therapists. Adult clients (N = 170) were randomized to treatment as usual (TAU) or routine outcome monitoring (ROM). Read More

Therapist-client agreement about their working alliance: Associations with attachment styles.

J Couns Psychol 2019 Jan 9;66(1):83-93. Epub 2018 Aug 9.

Department of Psychology.

Recent research on attachment in therapy indicates that therapist attachment style is related to therapists' agreement with their clients on the quality of their working alliance (WA; Kivlighan & Marmarosh, 2016). This study builds on these findings by examining how both the therapist's and the client's attachment style may be related to their agreement on the WA. The authors expected that less anxious and less avoidant clients working with less anxious and less avoidant therapists would have higher WA agreement. Read More

Social-cognitive predictors of career exploration and decision-making: Longitudinal test of the career self-management model.

J Couns Psychol 2019 Mar 9;66(2):184-194. Epub 2018 Aug 9.

Department of Counseling, Higher Education, and Special Education.

We tested the social-cognitive model of career self-management (Lent & Brown, 2013) using a longitudinal design. Participants were 420 college students who completed measures of career exploration and decision-making self-efficacy, outcome expectations, social support, goals, and actions, along with trait conscientiousness, at 2 time points roughly 4 months apart, near the beginning and middle of an academic year. They also reported their level of career decidedness and decisional anxiety at both of these time points as well as near the end of the academic year (about 3 months after the 2nd assessment).

Toward a nuanced understanding of nondisclosure in psychotherapy supervision.

J Couns Psychol 2019 Jan 2;66(1):114-121. Epub 2018 Aug 2.

Department of Educational and Counseling Psychology.

Previous research indicates that trainees often withhold important information related to their clients' progress and their reactions to supervision. Moreover, factors associated with the occurrence of supervisee nondisclosure (SND) are not well established. As one of the few studies to compare clinically related with supervision-related nondisclosure, we tested the relation of these two dimensions of the construct, as measured by Siembor and Ellis's (2012) Supervisee Nondisclosure Scales, to three important process variables: perceptions of (a) the supervisory alliance, as measured by Bahrick's (1989) Working Alliance Inventory-Trainee; (b) collaborative supervision, as measured by Rousmaniere and Ellis's (2013) Collaborative Supervision Behavior Scale; and (c) explicitly relational supervisor behaviors, as measured by Shaffer and Friedlander's (2017) Relational Behavior Scale.

Client feedback in China: A randomized clinical trial in a college counseling center.

J Couns Psychol 2018 Nov 30;65(6):727-737. Epub 2018 Jul 30.

Department of Educational, School, and Counseling Psychology.

Although client feedback has been demonstrated to improve psychotherapy outcomes in over a dozen randomized clinical trials, no studies to date have investigated the feedback effect outside of the United States or Europe. This study examined the impact of a client feedback intervention, the Partners for Change Outcome Management System, in a college counseling center in Wuhan, China ( = 186). Using a randomized design within routine care, treatment as usual (TAU; = 85) was compared with a feedback condition ( = 101) in which therapists had access to client-generated outcome and alliance information at each session.
