Abstract PDF
This study aimed to develop a serious game for college students with interpersonal trauma to practice adopting an alternative perspective mentoring a game character with similar experiences.
We recruited 44 college students with high levels of distress after experiencing interpersonal trauma. They were assigned to either the serious game+relaxation training (SG+RX, n=22) or the virtual reality+relaxation training condition (VR+RX, n=22). Cognitive, emotional, and self-efficacy aspects related to trauma were compared in both groups before and after treatment. In addition, interpersonal perceptions of "warmth, dominance, trust, and accessibility" for facial expressions of happiness, anger, and neutrality were compared in both groups before and after treatment.
Both groups showed positive changes in relaxation, post-traumatic cognition, and post-traumatic emotion after treatment. The SG+RX group showed greater increases in behavioral competence and confidence in the future and rated accessibility to angry/happy facial expressions higher than the VR+RX group.
These findings suggest that an interactive serious game promoting empathy, coping skills, and an alternative perspective effects positive changes for individuals with interpersonal trauma.

Abstract PDF
This study aimed to examine negative weighting biases in risk-taking situations and recalibrate the negative weighting biases using Bean Fest training among college students with high levels of rejection sensitivity.
Participants were college students who were randomly assigned to one of three groups: an implicit instruction group, an integrated instruction group, and a control group. In the recalibration condition, participants were informed whether each classification was correct or not, thus recalibrating the valence weighting bias. The integrated instruction group was given a strategic message to recalibrate the negative weighting bias explicitly, while the implicit instruction group was given a message that allowed them to determine the more effective method based on their own response.
Both treatment groups recalibrated the negative weighing bias effectively. In addition, the level of rejection sensitivity in the integrated instruction group was significantly reduced compared to that of the implicit instruction group.
This result suggests that Bean Fest training is effective in recalibrating the negative weighting bias and reducing rejection sensitivity among college students. The limitations of this study and suggestions for subsequent research are discussed.

Abstract PDF

The first step in disaster response is preparation, and education and training of workforce are considered as important elements of preparedness. The purpose of this study was to identify the needs of volunteers by exploring service experiences after a disaster to develop volunteer education programs.


Participants were 11 volunteers who had supported the victims’families during about 1 year after the Sewol ferry disaster. Focus group interviews were conducted to investigate the experience of volunteer at the levels of individual, within-team and between-teams, and to discover the need of further training.


The results showed that the needs for self- and team-care and advanced education were reported.


These results were discussed in terms of development of competence and mental health needs disaster volunteers. Limitations of this study and directions of future research were suggested.
