In accord with new European university reforms initiated by the Bologna Process, our objectives were to assess psychological quality of life (QoL) and to analyse its associations with academic employability skills (AES) among students from the Faculty of Language, Literature, Humanities, Arts and Education, Walferdange Luxembourg (F1, mostly vocational/applied courses); the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences, Liege, Belgium (F2, mainly general courses); and the Faculty of Social Work, Iasi, Romania (F3, mainly vocational/professional courses). Method: Students who redoubled or who had studied at other universities were excluded. 355 newly-registered first-year students (145 from F1, 125 from F2, and 85 from F3) were invited to complete an online questionnaire (in French, German, English or Romanian) covering socioeconomic data, the AES scale and the QoL-psychological, QoL-social relationships and QoL-environment subscales as measured with the World Health Organisation Quality of Life short-form (WHOQoL-BREF) questionnaire. Analyses included multiple regressions with interactions. Results: QoL-psychological, QoL-social relationships and QoL-environment’ scores were highest in F1 (Luxembourg), and the QoL-psychological score in F2 (Belgium) was the lower. AES score was higher in F1 than in F3 (Romania). A positive link was found between QoL-psychological and AES for F1 (correlation coefficient 0.29, p < 0.01) and F3 (correlation coefficient 0.30, p < 0.05), but the association was negative for F2 (correlation coefficient -0.25, p < 0.01). QoL-psychological correlated positively with QoL-social relationships (regression coefficient 0.31, p < 0.001) and QoL-environment (regression coefficient 0.35, p < 0.001). Conclusions: Psychological quality of life is associated with acquisition of skills that increase employability from the faculties offering vocational/applied/professional courses in Luxembourg and Romania, but not their academically orientated Belgian counterparts. In the context of developing a European Higher Educational Area, these measurements are major indicators that can be used as a guide to promoting programs geared towards counseling, improvement of the social environment, and services to assist with university work and facilitate achievement of future professional projects.

One of the unresolved issues regarding research on bulimia nervosa concerns the question as to how patients diagnosed with bulimia nervosa respond to body image exposure. In addition, it remains unclear whether there are differential responses associated with different exposure techniques (e.g. in vivo exposure vs. exposure by visualization). The aim of the present study was to investigate psychological responses to body image exposure. Twenty participants diagnosed with bulimia nervosa (DSM IV) and twenty non-eating disordered individuals were exposed to their body image using a video recording (video confrontation). In addition, they were asked to imagine and describe the appearance of their body (imagery task). Results indicate that self-reported negative emotions increased in response to both, video confrontation and imagery task, in the clinical as well as in the control group. Furthermore, video confrontation led to more pronounced group differences than exposure by visualization (imagery task). Participants diagnosed with bulimia nervosa took less time to describe their waist, hips and bottom compared to non-eating disturbed controls. This last result could be interpreted in terms of avoidance behavior and other mechanisms during body image exposure. [less ▲]

Profiling of the unemployed in order to predict and prevent long-term unemployment has hitherto been based on socio-professional data; however, there is evidence that psychological dimensions also predict job search strategies and unemployment duration. In order to provide psychological profiling, a typological method could be more parsimonious than trait/dimension approaches. Typologies created to date have not addressed the issue of predicting employment status. A sample of 384 newly unemployed people was assessed using psychometric scales which have been shown in past research to be linked to job finding. Through cluster analysis, five groups of unemployed people were differentiated: the “integrated”, “willing”, “outsider”, “anxious”, and “dispossessed”. The typology showed predictive validity for employment status after 12 months. People who were “anxious” or “dispossessed” were more often unemployed than those who were “integrated”, “willing”, or “outsider”. It provided an alternative way of classifying unemployed people that could be used in profiling and especially in advisory support and counselling. [less ▲]

Previous psychophysiological research suggests that pain measurement needs to go beyond the assessment of Pain Intensity and Unpleasantness by adding the evaluation of Pain-Related Suffering. Based on this three-dimensional approach, we attempted to elucidate who is more likely to suffer by identifying reasons that may lead individuals to report Pain and Pain-Related Suffering more than others. A sample of 24 healthy participants (age range 18±33) underwent four different sessions involving the evaluation of experimentally induced phasic and tonic pain. We applied two decision tree models to identify variables (selected from psychological questionnaires regarding pain and descriptors from post-session interviews) that provided a qualitative characterization of the degrees of Pain Intensity, Unpleasantness and Suffering and assessed the respective impact of contextual influences. The overall classification accuracy of the decision trees was 75% for Intensity, 77% for Unpleasantness and 78% for Pain-Related Suffering. The reporting of suffering was predominantly associated with fear of pain and active cognitive coping strategies, pain intensity with bodily competence conveying strength and resistance and unpleasantness with the degree of fear of pain and catastrophizing. These results indicate that the appraisal of the three pain dimensions was largely determined by stable psychological constructs. They also suggest that individuals manifesting higher active coping strategies may suffer less despite enhanced pain and those who fear pain may suffer even under low pain. The second decision tree model revealed that suffering did not depend on pain alone, but that the complex rating-related decision making can be shifted by situational factors (context, emotional and cognitive). The impact of coping and fear of pain on individual Pain-Related Suffering may highlight the importance of improving cognitive coping strategies in clinical settings. [less ▲]

Besides the intergenerational solidarity paradigm, the concept of psychological ambivalence has emerged as a key dimension for the description of intergenerational relations. Psychological ambivalence is defined as the concomitant occurrence of contradictory motives, emotions, and action tendencies towards one person. The present study aimed at the development of a Questionnaire for the Measurement of Ambivalence in Parent-Child-Relations in Adulthood. It comprises k = 23 items that are available in a maternal and in a paternal version. Exploratory and confirmatory analyses were carried out on a sample of N = 210 young and middle-aged adults, and showed different two-factor structures for the two versions. Further, a short version of the questionnaire was developed that allows for comparisons between parental relationships. Examination of the psychometric properties of the scales revealed sound reliability. Further, first substantive evidence for the criterion validity of the scales is reported. [less ▲]

Angesichts der Häufigkeit und Tragweite der Schuldfähigkeitsbegutachtung bei sogenannter schwerer anderer seelischer Abartigkeit (SASA) ist eine wissenschaftlich fundierte Methodenentwicklung Grundvoraussetzung psychowissenschaftlicher Sachverständigentätigkeit. Das Fehlen empirisch fundierter Schuldfähigkeitsmerkmale für das vierte Eingangsmerkmal führt in der Praxis häufig dazu, dass auf in beliebiger Form kombinierte, idiosynkratisch geprägte Lehrmeinungen und Erfahrungswerte zurückgegriffen wird. Dies beeinträchtigt die Rechtssicherheit in einem Feld, in dem Menschen weitreichenden Entscheidungen bezüglich der ihnen zuzumutenden Maßnahmen unterworfen sind. Vor diesem Hintergrund ist es Anliegen dieses Buches, ein empirisch basiertes gutachterliches Vorgehen der psychologischen Schuldfähigkeitsbegutachtung bei SASA vorzustellen, das mit der forensischen Praxis vereinbar ist. Dabei wird zunächst einführend auf die rechtlichen Rahmenbedingungen, bisher entwickelte entscheidungsorientierte Begutachtungsheuristiken sowie Mindeststandards eingegangen. Das neu vorgestellte Vorgehen zur Schuldfä-higkeitsbegutachtung bei SASA wird dabei über ein Vulnerabilitäts-Stress-Modell konzipiert, innerhalb dessen Bewältigungsfähigkeiten eine zentrale Rolle spielen. Dies wird aus einer persönlichkeitspsychologischen Rahmentheorie im Spannungsfeld von Saluto- und Pathoge-nese abgeleitet und anhand entsprechender Hypothesen überprüft. Auf der konkreten Begu-tachtungsebene wird ein zwei-axiales Begutachtungssystem vorgestellt, das sowohl situati-onsübergreifende als auch tatbezogene Erlebens- und Verhaltensweisen berücksichtigt. Proto-typen schuld- und vermindert schuldfähiger Straftäter sowie eine zugehörige Begutachtungs-heuristik auf empirischer Grundlage werden dargestellt. Das Buch stellt in Fortführung der Forschungstätigkeit zu diesem Thema umfassendes empiri-sches Material zur Überprüfung und Absicherung der vorgestellten Heuristik für die Schuld-fähigkeitsbegutachtung bei SASA zur Verfügung. Es stellt ein hilfreiches forensisches Arbeits- und Forschungsmittel für Psychologen, Psychiater und Juristen dar. [less ▲]
