<b>Purpose:</b> The purpose of this study was to analyze the research trends about hospitalization stress in korea and suggest the direction of future studies.<b>Methods:</b> 84 researches from 1975 to 2014 were analyzed with regard to the years, subjects, main concepts and designs et al.<b>Results</b>: Among the 84 studies, 44 were for thesis studies for a degree, 40 for academic journal. There were 62 quantitative studies, 17 qualitative studies, and 5 other types of study. The most frequently used study design was a descriptive research. The majority of study participants were medical/surgical inpatients, psychiatric patient or elder patient. In correlation studies, hospitalization stress had positive correlation with depression, anxiety, psychosomatic disorder and had negative correlation with family support, social support, mental health. Main study tool for hospitalization stress was Volicer et al.(1975) HSRS (Hospital Stress Rating Scale). In experimental study, the independent variables were aroma hand massage, music therapy, nursing information. The main theme of qualitative studies was the experience of hospitalization, and the main methods of qualitative studies were phenomenology, grounded theory. A few tool development studies were done.<b>Conclusion:</b> The hospitalization stress suitable for the unique emotional and sociocultural characteristics of the Koreans and based on country health situation should be investigated, and we need various tool development studies. Furthermore, research for short-term inpatient and effective program development studies are needed. (Korean J Str Res 2015;23:49∼61)

Abstract PDF
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of MAUM meditation on Hwa-byung symptoms, stress symptoms, and coping styles. Participants were 120 people consisting of 65 men and 55 women who attended a MAUM meditation camp which lasted for 8 days. Ages ranged from 15 to 60 years (Men’s mean of age=41.8 years old, SD=11.2; Women’s mean of age=41.6 years old, SD=11.8). In the MAUM meditation camp, the participants were trained to meditate and be mindful for the total of 70 hours in groups of 15 to 20 people. Results revealed that the MAUM meditation participants showed decreases in scores on all subscales of Hwa-Byung Diagnostic Interview Schedule and SCL-90-R. The participants also endorsed more adaptive coping strategies and less maladaptive strategies. These results suggest that MAUM meditation can help people reduce Hwa-Byung symptoms and stress from daily life events. (Korean J Str Res 2015;23:63∼77)

Abstract PDF
The purpose of this study was to examine influencing factors of job-seeking stress among Korean college students. A cross-sectional descriptive survey was conducted. A sample size of 248 male and 225 female students residing in South Korea completed the instruments of perceived job-seeking stress, self-efficacy, stress coping, social support, and depressive symptoms. Data was analyzed by ANOVA and multivariate regression. Female presented higher stress level, depressive symptoms, and lower self-efficacy and active coping. Influencing factors of job-seeking stress were self-efficacy, depression, grade, major, academic achievement, and employment status. Female students, self-efficacy, and academic major need to be considered when developing job-seeking stress management program. Depression should be screened when counseling students on high level of job-seeking stress. (Korean J Str Res 2015;23:79∼89)

Abstract PDF
The purposes of this study were to investigate the child-rearing attitude, parenting stress and their relationship and to identify the predictors of parenting stress among infant mothers. A descriptive correlational study was conducted. The participants were 258 infant mothers who visited a health department in G city. Self-administered questionnaire was used for data collection. For data analysis, descriptive statistics, t-test, ANOVA, Scheffe multiple comparison, Pearson correlation coefficient and multiple regression analysis were conducted. The average score for child-rearing attitude was 70.5 and parenting stress was 76.80. Child-rearing attitude was significantly correlated with parenting stress. Child-rearing attitude, husband support, economic status, the mother’s age, the mother’s perception of infant’s growth were significant predictors explaining 40.4% parenting stress. Nursing interventions need to be developed and applied to improve child-rearing attitude of infant mothers and to maintain and promote health status of infants. Further studies are needed to identify the predictors of parenting stress. (Korean J Str Res 2015;23:91∼100)

Abstract PDF
The purpose of this study is to investigate the difference in P3 amplitude between relevant questions (RQ) and irrelevant questions (IRQ) during concealed information test using event-related potential. Response difference between guilty group, not-guilty but exposed to crime-related information group, and not-guilty and not exposed to crime-related information group are compared. A total of 126 subjects’ data has been analyzed out of 131 subject data. Data from 5 subjects has been discarded due to inadequacy. Ultimately, in each of the 3 groups, 42 participants are randomly assigned. Result indicated that the P3 amplitude observed in the Fz area showed a significant difference between the RQ and the IRQ among the guilty group. However, remaining groups of the two not-guilty groups did not show a significant difference in all areas of Fz, Pz, and Cz between the RQ and the IRQ regardless of the exposure of the crime-related question. The limitation and the implications are discussed in this article. (Korean J Str Res 2015;23:101∼107)
