Deenz Histrionic Personality Scale, a purpose-built 20-item instrument, seeks to unravel the subtle nuances of subclinical traits associated with Histrionic Personality among college students. Developed with precision and care, the scale's primary goal is to identify individuals exhibiting a heightened inclination toward histrionic traits, while concurrently assessing the potential impact and likelihood of developing Histrionic Personality Disorder (HPD). Anchored in a commitment to early intervention and support, the scale's efficacy was rigorously examined in a case study involving 230 college students, comprising 131 males and 99 females. The study revealed the scale's accuracy in pinpointing students displaying impairment and tendencies toward clinical traits associated with Histrionic Personality. The findings underscore the Deenz Histrionic Personality Scale as a valuable tool for not only illuminating subclinical traits but also forecasting the trajectory toward clinically significant personality disorders. As a proactive measure, this scale holds promise in contributing to the holistic well-being of college students, emphasizing the importance of targeted interventions and support strategies. As further research unfolds, the scale's role in refining our understanding of histrionic traits among college students becomes increasingly evident.
The current research was conducted with the aim of investigating Relationship between life expectancy and psychological well-being students During the corona era of 2020-2021. The current research method was quantitative and correlational. The current research population included 83 students of the last semester of university yadegar Imam Khomeini (RA) psychology in 1399-1400, Based on Morgan's table of whom 68 (61 women and 7 men) were selected as Available a sample. Miller's life expectancy questionnaire (MHS) and Riff's psychological well-being questionnaire (RSPWB) were used as research tools. The method of data collection was library and field. SPSS version 26 software was used to analyze the data. While checking the assumption of normality of the data according to the research method which was correlation, Pearson correlation test was used to confirm or reject the research hypotheses. The results of Pearson's test showed that there is a positive and significant relationship between life expectancy and mental well-being and its dimensions in students during the Corona era of 2020-2021with a probability of 99% (p<0.01). Solutions should be organized along with teaching the concepts and dimensions of life expectancy to improve it and explain the factors affecting it, which will increase the level of life expectancy and psychological well-being of students.

This study aims to explore the impact of migration as a central event in personal identity, spirituality, and religiousness on subjective well-being (SWB). The sample was composed of 204 Latin American immigrants living in Israel, with ages ranging from 18 to 80 years (M = 48.76; SD = 15.36) across both sexes (Men = 34.8%; Women = 65.2%). The results show that, when analyzing the effects on SWB, Positive and Negative Affect, Centrality of Event, Religious Crisis, and Spiritual Transcendence present as the most relevant explanatory variables within the models. However, contrary to expectation, the present study identifies positive associations between the centrality of migration and SWB. Motivations for emigration should be explored in further studies as they could be mediating the relationship between centrality of events and SWB.
This reflection of practice is based on a case that has been carried out on four sessions of music therapy with client L, in the medical clinic area of the San Jose hospital in Buenos Aires, Argentina, 2022. The cause of hospitalisation was an ischemic stroke, which resulted in a left-sided hemiplegia. The Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT) technique Patterned Sensory Enhancement known as (PSE), is used in order to provide rehabilitation for the left arm, promoting, in addition to the motor rehabilitation process, a safe space to rebuild her own recovery narrative, in a favourable way, through a comprehensive person-centred approach.
This paper explores the correlation between binge eating behaviors and depression symptoms in adolescents. Understanding this relationship is crucial for effective diagnosis and treatment of these prevalent mental health conditions. The study involved 100 adolescents aged 13-19 years, utilizing standardized scales to measure binge eating behaviors and depression symptoms. Results showed a positive linear correlation (R = ~0.52) between binge eating behaviors and depression symptoms. Specific questions related to "boredom and eating habits" and "guilt after overeating" were significant predictors of depression symptom severity. Similarly, the depression symptom "feeling hopeless about the future" significantly predicted binge eating behavior severity. Consideration of comorbid mental health conditions is important for assessing and treating eating disorders. However, limitations included convenience sampling, lack of diversity, small sample size, and potential response bias. Future research should investigate causal relationships, underlying factors in binge eating disorder, and additional predictors for a comprehensive understanding of mood and eating disorders.
The adoption of online-based learning and the internet has had both a positive impact on students. This study aims to understand how social media literacy, guardian supervision, and self-discipline affects Online Privacy Risk during the Covid19 pandemic in India. This paper elaborated a quantitative method with SEM-PLS to raise the comprehension of the phenomenon studied. A questionnaire was voluntarily responded to approximately 300 high school students who engaged in online-based learning. The structural equation modeling estimation indicates that social media literacy, guardian supervision, and self-discipline influences Online Privacy Risk. However, guardian supervision failed in promoting students' self-discipline. These findings suggest that both social media literacy and guardian supervision needs to be penetrated to reduce the impact of Online Privacy Risk in the teaching and learning process. This is the first step for schools and parents’ alertness in assisting and considering the appropriate and safe media using technology
This paper utilised a sequential explanatory mixed-methods design comparing the experiences of 17 parents who use; and 23 parents who do not use psychotropic medicine for their children diagnosed with autism. The main objective is to identify the factors influencing their decision-making process. Quantitative analyses revealed that attitude towards treatment significantly differentiates parents who use (with more positive attitude levels) and parents who do not use (with more negative attitude levels) prescribed medicines. Furthermore, treatment attitude has been found to have significant association with three treatment decision variables. There was a low negative correlation with treatment cost and a high positive correlation with treatment belief and perceived behaviour severity. In the qualitative analysis, six factors were identified that influenced parents’ decision to use or not to use medicine: (1) perceived mental health condition; (2) perception towards autism diagnosis; (3) doctor’s prescription and recommendation; (4) beliefs and attitudes towards treatment; (5) perceived necessity and expectation of treatment decision which include perceived improvement of the child (from parents who decided to have both therapy and medication and from parents who decided to have only therapy); and, (6) the problems encountered. Integrating both the quantitative and qualitative data led to the formulation of a treatment decision model that explains the interaction of five major variables (child, parent, doctor, decision, and treatment) in the decision-making process from which the parent variable, specifically perception and beliefs towards treatment directs the decision to use on not to use such treatment.
The development of the Filipino Coping Strategies scale was based on the qualitative data on the resilience of Filipinos and the ways by which they cope with stressful life experiences and the quantitative data on foreign measures of coping. Integration of both data led to the formulation of nine coping strategies: cognitive reappraisal (pagsusuri), social support (paghingi ng tulong), problem-solving (pagtugon), religiosity (pagkarelihiyoso), tolerance (pagtitiis), emotional release (paglabas ng saloobin), overactivity (pagmamalabis), relaxation/recreation (paglilibang), and substance use (pagbibisyo). Initially, the scale was composed of 45 items with five items under each domain. This was pilot tested to 627 male and female Filipinos aged 18 above. Reliability analysis revealed items that are internally consistent with each other resulting in the reduction of items to 37. Furthermore, construct validity was established via a) factor analysis through principal components analysis extraction method and varimax rotation method and b) test for convergent validity by correlating each domain of the Filipino Coping Strategies scale with the corresponding domains of Ways of Coping by Folkman and Lazarus and the COPE Inventory by Carver, Scheier, and Weintraub. Independent samples t-test revealed significant differences among males and females in each coping strategy which served as the basis for norm groups. The Filipino Coping Strategies scale is a four-point Likert scale which aims to measure the coping strategies of Filipinos towards stress and generates a coping dispositional profile which can be used to aid in the assessment of coping behaviors.
The purpose of the present study was to predict emotional intelligence based on the Prosocial Personality in people aged 16 to 56 living in Tehran during the COVID-19 era with descriptive and correlational methods. 92 people (43 women and 49 men) were selected from among the 16 to 56-year-old people living in Tehran during the COVID-19 period of 1400-1401 as the available sample. Data collection was in library and field. Research tools included emotional intelligence questionnaire (MSEIS) and Prosocial Personality (PSB). Due to the spread of the COVID-19 virus and to prevent the spread of the disease, relevant questionnaires were created through the Porsall system, and the link was provided to the participants for answering. The research data was analyzed using SPSS-26 software with two methods of descriptive statistics and inferential statistics. In descriptive statistics, mean, standard deviation, frequency tables and relevant charts were used, and in inferential statistics, according to the research method, regression and Pearson tests were used to check research hypotheses. The results of the regression test of the main hypothesis of emotional intelligence and Prosocial Personality are significant (r=0.000) and Prosocial Personality predicts 14% of emotional intelligence changes in people. Also, the sub-hypotheses of the research showed that there is a positive and significant relationship between emotional intelligence and its dimensions, including evaluation of emotions in oneself and others, regulation of emotions and perception and understanding of emotions with a Prosocial Personality with a probability of 99% (P<0.01).
