Abstract PDF
The purpose of the study was to examine the effects of mindfulness and pain acceptance on pain and depression of chronic pain patients and to test moderating roles of mindfulness and pain acceptance in the relationship between catastrophizing and pain and in the relationship between catastrophizing and depression. Present Pain Intensity, Visual Analogue Scale, Cognitive and Affective Mindfulness Scale-Revised, Chronic Pain Acceptance Questionnaire, Pain Catastrophizing Scale, and Beck Depression Inventory were administered to a sample of 181 chronic pain patients. Results indicated that higher levels of pain acceptance were associated with lower levels of depression and pain and higher levels of mindfulness were associated with lower levels of depression, while the relation between mindfulness and pain was not significant. The meaningful moderating effect of pain acceptance in the relationship between catastrophizing and depression has been found, while, the same effect of those on pain was not verified. Mindfulness showed no meaningful sign of moderating effect on both pain and depression either. These results conform the positive effect of pain acceptance on depression, and support the fact that acceptance-based therapies would be useful to treat chronic pain. And finally suggest changes in pain acceptance and catastrophizing may be an important target to treat patients with chronic pain. (Korean J Str Res 2014;22:11∼21)

Abstract PDF
This study aims to investigate causes of suicidal ideation of persons with severe disabilities, and a total of 224 registered disabled persons in S-gu of Seoul were surveyed. The analysis of the suicidal ideation of persons with severe disabilities based on general characteristics showed that those who have ever attempted suicide have more suicidal ideation than those who have not. However, multiple regression analysis of the influence of daily activities, experience of committing suicide, and depression on suicidal ideation without general characteristics uncovered statistically significant effect of ‘depression’ and ‘experience of committing suicide’, while there was no statistical significance in ‘daily activities’. These results suggest that persons with severe disabilities, who have experience of committing suicide and depression in the past, need more care and support to prevent any future trial of suicide since they are more vulnerable to suicidal ideation (Korean J Str Res 2014;22:35∼42)

Abstract PDF
In recent years, mindfulness has been gaining much attention in the field of mental health. The purpose of this study is to explore the relationship among mindfulness and burnout and to confirm whether mindfulness related skills have preventive function against job stress. Demographic variables, mindfulness skill and burnout of counselors working in 76 counseling centers which provide services for sex trafficking victims were measured and the relationship among variables were analyzed. We found that age, effectiveness of practice and working time could predict burnout. Non-judgmental acceptance and concentration, sub-factors of mindfulness skills, could predict burnout even if we controlled effect of age, effectiveness of practice and working time. Mindfulness skills did not show significant relation with job satisfaction. Results showed counselors who have Mindfulness skills tended to experience less buruout. (Korean J Str Res 2014;22:43∼54)
