Cognitive processes of emotional regulation, burnout and work engagement.

Psicothema 2019 02;31(1):73-80

Universidad Siglo 21, Córdoba (Argentina).

Background: Workers constantly resort to cognitive processes of emotion regulation to deal with emotions they experience in the workplace. These processes belong either to the "automatic" (preconscious and fast) or the "elaborative" (conscious and slow) mode. This study aims to determine the role of these variables in the work setting and to analyze their relationship with positive and negative affect, engagement and burnout. Read More

Metacomprehension skills depend on the type of text: An analysis from Differential Item Functioning.

Psicothema 2019 02;31(1):66-72

Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.

Background: Metacomprehension skills determine an individual reader's ability to judge their degree of learning and text comprehension and have considerable importance in their ability to learn from reading. Given that many comprehension processes are influenced by text characteristics, the aim of the present study was to analyze whether different types of text have significant impact on metacomprehension skills at two different points in primary education.

Method: A total of 823 students (4th and 6th years of primary school, 9 to 11 years old) read three different texts (narrative, expository and discontinuous texts) taken from ECOM-PLEC. Read More

Type of memory and emotional valence in healthy aging, mild cognitive impairment, and Alzheimer's disease.

Psicothema 2019 02;31(1):60-65

University of Valencia.

Background: Autobiographical memory (AM) presents components related to the type of memory and may present an associated emotional valence. Comparing healthy older adults, adults with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and adults with Alzheimer's disease (AD) gives contradictory results. We examined AM in these groups to analyze differences and provide information that would contribute to the understanding of AM and associated emotional deficits in patients. Read More

Influence of environmental enrichment on the volume of brain regions sensitive to early life stress by maternal separation in rats.

Psicothema 2019 Feb;31(1):46-52

Universidad de Oviedo.

Background: Exposure to maternal separation (MS) in rodents may have long-lasting consequences for the structure and function of several brain regions, eventually associated with alterations in cognition and emotion later in life. Post-weaning environmental enrichment (EE) has been reported to ameliorate the detrimental effects of exposure to early life stress mainly in the hippocampus.

Method: In vivo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was applied to evaluate possible volumetric changes in the dorsal and ventral hippocampus, the medial prefrontal cortex and the dorsal striatum of 90-day-old male rats after daily MS for 240 min from postnatal days 2-21. Read More

Background: Some attitudes serve to justify violence against women, to blame women for the violence they experience, and to perpetuate levels of this violence. These attitudes often stem from traditional norms and beliefs which are important to identify. The purpose of this study is to compare beliefs about intimate partner violence against women (IPVAW) between two time points, examining the effect of the respondents– sex and previous academic-training.

Psicothema 2019 Feb;31(1):17-23

Universitat Jaume I, CIBER de Fisiopatología de la Obesidad y Nutrición (CIBEROBN).

Background: Adjustment Disorders (AjD) are one of the most prevalent psychological problems in primary and hospital care. It is necessary to have evidence-based instruments to help professionals diagnose and better understand this problem, which has been little studied. This study presents an adaptation of the Inventory of Complicated Grief for the assessment of AjD symptoms, referred to as the Inventory of Stress and Loss (ISL), and explores the differences in the response to stressful situations between general and clinical Spanish populations.

Spanish version of the Phubbing Scale: Internet addiction, Facebook intrusion, and fear of missing out as correlates.

Psicothema 2018 Nov;30(4):449-454

University of Malaga.

Background: Phubbing is an increasingly common behavior that involves using a smartphone in a social setting of two or more people and interacting with the phone rather than with the other people. Research to date on phubbing has measured it using different scales or single questions, and therefore standard measures with appropriate psychometric properties are needed to improve its assessment. The aim of our study was to develop a Spanish version of the Phubbing Scale and to examine its psychometric properties: factor structure, reliability, and concurrent validity. Read More

Seven methods to determine the dimensionality of tests: application to the General Self-Efficacy Scale in twenty-six countries.

Psicothema 2018 11;30(4):442-448

Universidad de Salamanca

Background: One of the most important concepts within Cognitive Social Theory as framed by Bandura is the perceived self-efficacy; this concept became widespread in 1981 when Mathias Jerusalem and Ralf Schwarzer, using 10 items, established a one-dimensional and universal construct of this scale. The main purpose of this study is to show that the General Self-Efficacy Scale (GSE) is not a one-dimensional and universal construct, as is currently assumed.

Method: The data from 19,719 people from 26 countries were analyzed. Read More

Data analysis of incomplete repeated measures using a multivariate extension of the Brown-Forsythe procedure.

Psicothema 2018 11;30(4):434-441

Universidad de Oviedo.

Background: A multivariate extension of the Brown-Forsythe (MBF) procedure can be used for the analysis of partially repeated measure designs (PRMD) when the covariance matrices are arbitrary. However, the MBF procedure requires complete data over time for each subject, which is a significant limitation of this procedure. This article provides the rules for pooling the results obtained after applying the same MBF analysis to each of the imputed datasets of a PRMD. Read More

Differences between individualist and collectivist cultures in emotional Facebook usage: relationship with empathy, self-esteem, and narcissism.

Psicothema 2018 Nov;30(4):376-381

Universidad de Oviedo.

Background: Adolescents are one of the groups who most use social networks in an emotional way, to express their own emotions and to empathize with the emotions of others. Although personality factors; namely, empathy, self-esteem, and narcissism appear to play an important role in this usage, the contribution of cultural variables has yet to be examined. The aim of this study is to examine cross-cultural variations in Facebook usage and the relationship of those variations with empathy, self-esteem and narcissistic personality factors. Read More

The contrastive value of lexical stress in visual word recognition: Evidence from Spanish.

Psicothema 2018 08;30(3):276-282

Universidad de La Laguna.

Background: Many pairs of words in Spanish, in particular many verbal forms, differ only in the syllable stressed, such as aNImo (I encourage) and aniMÓ (he encouraged). Consequently, word stress may acquire a lexical contrastive value that has been confirmed by Dupoux, Pallier, Sebastian, and Mehler (1997) for Spanish speakers though not for French speakers in auditory perception.

Method: This study contrasts the priming effect produced by pairs of written words that differ only in their stress pattern with the priming effect in repetition priming, stress only priming (with no orthographic relation), and morphological priming, in visual word recognition. Read More

Assessing self-determination in youth with and without disabilities: The Spanish version of the AIR self-determination scale.

Psicothema 2018 May;30(2):238-243

Universidad Ramon Llull.

Background: Acting in a self-determined manner, that is, using problem-solving or decision-making strategies, strongly depends on the opportunities the person is given to do so by the context. In fact, context can either facilitate or thwart the opportunities of adolescents and young adults for self-determined action, though there is, to date, a lack of instruments within the Spanish context to assess these opportunities.

Method: This study aims to address this need by adapting and validating the AIR self-determination scale to the Spanish context with a sample of young Spanish people with and without disabilities. Read More
