Background: School climate is a heterogeneous concept with a multitude of standardised and validated instruments available to measure it.Purpose: This overview of measurement scales aims to provide researchers with short summaries of some of the self-report instruments in existence, especially in relation to the link between school climate and aggression, within the context of Bronfenbrenner’s model. A secondary aim of this article is to show how the same instrument can sometimes be adapted to fit different theoretical approaches or to focus on different dimensions of school climate.Design and methods: After database consultation and literature hand searching, the resulting literature was screened for a statistical analysis of school climate and aggression. Those studies that had unclear operationalisations of the main variables or used qualitative methods were excluded. The resulting selection of studies were further scanned for common instruments used to evaluate school climate.Conclusions: This article will show how the California School Climate Survey (CSCS), the Psychological Sense of School Membership Scale (PSSM), the School Climate Survey (SCS) and the Effective School Battery (ESB) as well as different versions of self-created scales on school connectedness, school climate and school culture have been adapted by different researchers in different contexts. Finally, the necessity of adapting a pre-existing instrument or creating a new one will be discussed. [less ▲]

Die Selbstregulationstheorie postuliert, dass Patienten eine aktive Rolle in der Krankheitsverarbeitung einnehmen und dabei insbesondere die Ziel- setzungen der jeweiligen Person bedeutsam sind (Leventhal, 1970; Maes, Karoly, 2005). Vor dem Hintergrund dieser Annahmen befasst sich die Studie „MONDIAB” (von „mon diabète” abgeleitet) mit der Fragestellung, inwiefern psychosoziale Faktoren einen Einfluss auf das subjektive Gesund- heitserleben von Diabetes-Typ-I-Patienten aufweisen. Die Stichprobe der Studie umfasst insgesamt 328 Diabetes-Typ-I-Patienten im Alter von 16 bis 65 Jahren, von denen 120 Patienten sechs Monate später an einer Nach- befragung teilnahmen. Die Daten wurden mittels eines Online-Fragebogens erhoben. Unter anderem gesundheitsbezogene Kognitionen und Motivatio- nen, die wahrgenommene Unterstützung des Pflegeteams sowie die persön- lichen Lebensziele wurden erfasst. Die Befunde unterstreichen die Bedeutung der wahrgenommenen Kontrollüberzeugung und Motivation für die Diabetesdiät. Darüber hinaus zeigt sich, dass die erlebte Unterstützung des Pflegeteams in sowohl kurz- als auch langfristiger Hinsicht einen Einfluss auf den Zuckerspiegel der Patienten hat. Weiterhin belegt die Studie, dass die Einschränkung von persönlichen Lebenszielen durch die Krankheit einen Risikofaktor für das psychologische Wohlbefinden der Patienten darstellt. Demgegenüber erweisen sich Selbstwirksamkeit und soziale Unterstützung als Schutzfaktoren. Abschließend werden die Befunde im Hinblick auf An- satzpunkte für Interventionsmaßnahmen zur Verbesserung der Lebens- qualität der Betroffenen diskutiert. [less ▲]

Based on the assumptions of social cognitive theory and self-regulation theory, the present study aimed at exploring psychosocial factors in self-care of diabetes (Edgar & Skinner, 2003; Iannotti et al., 2006; Nouwen et al., 2009). The study sample comprised N 1⁄4 99 patients with type 1 diabetes aged between 12 and 39 years. Participants completed the diabetes self-efficacy scale, the brief illness perceptions questionnaire, the WHO-five index and the summary of diabetes self-care activities scale. Results showed that illness perceptions (i.e. perceived consequences (r1⁄4􏰆0.28), personal control (r1⁄40.24), treatment control (r1⁄40.27), compre- hension (r1⁄40.27) and emotional response (r1⁄40.27)), as well as well-being (r1⁄40.42) and perceived diabetes self-efficacy (r 1⁄4 0.55) were significantly correlated with self-care. Furthermore, stepwise regression analyses elucidated self-efficacy (􏰈1⁄40.44) to be the most powerful predictor of self-care, as illness perceptions and well-being became non significant when introducing self-efficacy. Moreover, self-efficacy completely mediated the effect of well- being on self-care (Sobel t 1⁄4 3.74, p50.01). As for clinical implications of these results, it can be suggested that a stronger emphasise should be given on fostering patients’ confidence in their ability to effectively manage their diabetes.

Preliminary results demonstrated that anger coping style is linked to mental and physical health in diabetes (Kolbasovsky, 2004; Yi et al., 2008). The present study examined the effect of anger expression and emotional distress on well-being of diabetics. A sample of diabetic patients (n1⁄488 type I, n1⁄4111 type II) completed the WHO-five well-being index, the Problem Areas in Diabetes scale and the State-Trait-Anger-Expression-Inventory. Results showed that diabetics with type I demonstrated significantly more emotional distress than type II patients and that well-being was negatively correlated with emotional distress and anger in. Regression analyses showed that well-being was predicted for both types of diabetes by emotional distress. In addition, type II patients’ well-being could be explained by anger in. These findings confirmed anger in as a risk factor of type II diabetics’ mental health. Considering these results, anger-management interventions may be useful in particular for type II diabetics’ patients. [less ▲]

Findings demonstrated that overweight adolescents are more likely to be both victims and perpetrators of violent acts (Janssen et al., 2004). The present study tested this weight-based victimization/perpetrator hypothesis. The study sample comprised N1⁄4649 middle school students, which were regrouped in three weight categories (i.e. underweight, normal weight, overweight) according to the cut-offs proposed by the International Obesity Taskforce. In order to analyze group differences between the weight categories, three same sized groups (N 1⁄4 75) were randomly created from the whole data set. Results confirmed that overweight students are more likely to be victimized but not to become perpetrators themselves compared to their peers. Logistic regressions showed that being anxious (OR 1⁄4 2.34), having low self- esteem (OR1⁄40.58), having a higher BMI (OR1⁄41.11) and being male (OR1⁄40.26) are risk factors of victimization. Results will be discussed with respect to psychosocial interventions. [less ▲]
