Abstract PDF

본 연구의 목적은 대학생들이 지각하는 사회적 불평등 및 주관적인 사회경제적 지위와 우울 및 불안의 종단적 관계를 확인하는 것이다. 한국의 대학생들을 대상으로 2016년 한 학기 동안 세 시점에 걸쳐 온라인 설문지를 작성하게 하였고, 총 247명의 데이터가 분석에 포함되었다. GEE 분석 결과, 지각된 사회적 불평등이 높아질수록 우울의 위험율도 높아졌으며(OR=1.56), 주관적 사회경제적 지위가 낮을수록 불안(OR=1.39) 및 우울(OR=1.38)의 위험율이 높아졌다. 해당 결과는 치료 장면에서 대학생들의 불안 및 우울을 다룰 때 이들의 불평등 인식 및 주관적 사회경제적 지위도 고려해야함을 시사한다.

Abstract PDF

Although social support for patients with chronic illnesses buffers the detrimental impacts of stress, if it is not provided appropriately, it can be a source of stress. This study examined the psychometric properties of the Korean version of the Contextual Illness Support Scale (K-CISS) for patients with rheumatoid disease.


A cross-sectional survey containing measures on social support, depression, anxiety, and quality of life was conducted with patients with rheumatoid disease (N=323).


The construct validity was supported by the results of the exploratory structural equation modeling, confirming the original two-factor model (positive and problematic support) and significant correlations between these two factors and health-related variables (i.e., depression, anxiety, and quality of life). The concurrent validity was supported by the significant positive correlation between positive and social support that was measured by the Korean version of the DUKE-UNC functional social support questionnaire. The internal consistency of the K-CISS was satisfactory, with Cronbach’s α values of .96 and .72 for the subscales.


These results suggest that K-CISS is a reliable and valid measure of two aspects of social support.

Abstract PDF

The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between attentional bias to threat and positive stimuli (i.e., facilitated attentional engagement, difficulty in attentional disengagement, and attentional avoidance) and event-related rumination, and to examine whether the latter mediated the relationship between attentional bias and posttraumatic stress symptoms (PTSS) and posttraumatic growth (PTG) in individuals with traumatic experiences.


A total of 70 college students with traumatic experiences participated in the study. Attentional bias to threat and positive stimuli was measured by employing a spatial cueing task. Other variables were assessed using self-report measures including The Impact of Event-Related Scale-Revised, Event-Related Rumination Inventory, Post-traumatic Growth Inventory, and State-Trait Anxiety Inventory.


The results indicated that attentional avoidance was significantly associated with intrusive rumination, whereas none of the three aspects of attention bias was associated with deliberate rumination. Furthermore, attentional avoidance was related to increased intrusive rumination, which in turn, was associated with increased PTSS. Additionally, difficulty in attentional disengagement from threat stimuli was associated with finding new possibilities, one aspect of a PTG, even after controlling for the impact of deliberate rumination.


The current results suggest that therapeutic interventions aimed at helping individuals not to avoid but accept their traumatic experience may be effective to overcome trauma and facilitate PTG among individuals with traumatic experiences.
