Abstract PDF

Recently, the demand for mental health services using information and communication technology (ICT) such as mobile communication and social network service (SNS) is increasing. Mobile health (m-Health) and health big data are expected to play a major role in driving the future healthcare paradigm. In particular, the value of applications utilizing smart devices including smartphone and wearable devices is increasing day by day. Mobile applications that can be applied to the patient to restore disease in the neuropsychiatric area can be easily provided, and clinicians can also use the clinic in patient diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment. In practical use, it is still a step in the process, so it is necessary to check the stability of the system that operates the data and prevent infringement and leakage of personal information that may occur later. In addition, it is necessary to establish the effectiveness and credibility based on the basis of practical use of mobile health (m-Health) and health big data. With technological advances being made day by day, mental health care workers should be aware of this trend and have an active interest.

Abstract PDF

The present study investigates the mediating effect of experiential avoidance on the relationship between undergraduate student’s motives for using Social Network Service (SNS) and SNS addiction tendency. The current study focuses on Facebook as it is the leading SNS in Korea, and the motives for using Facebook are consisted of communication, information seeking, entertainment, self-confirmation and companionship. The total data of 279 undergraduate students (male N=103, M=21.94, SD=2.76) were analyzed. The results of the study validated that all of the motives for using Facebook are positively related to SNS addiction tendency. Experiential avoidance is also positively associated with SNS addiction tendency. Moreover, the mediating effect of experiential avoidance is significant on the relationship between motives for using SNS and SNS addiction tendency except for entertainment and companionship motives. The implications and limitations of the study were discussed.

Abstract PDF

The purpose of this study was to identify the mediating effects of emotional stability and social support in the relationship between major satisfaction and academic adjustment of college freshmen majoring in nursing and health science. Data were collected from 291 college freshmen majoring in nursing and health science using a self-reported questionnaire, which included a major satisfaction, emotional stability, social support, and academic adjustment. A Descriptive, t-test, ANOVA, Pearson correlation, hierarchical regression, and Sobel test were used for data analysis. The result showed that major satisfaction was positively related to emotional stability, social support, and academic adjustment. Emotional stability and social support was positively related to academic adjustment. Hierarchical regression analysis showed that emotional stability partially mediated the relationship between major satisfaction and academic adjustment. Also, social support partially mediated the relationship between major satisfaction and academic adjustment. These results suggest that emotional stability and social support can be effective variables in improving academic adjustment of freshmen majoring in nursing and health science. Overall, it is necessary to develop mental health interventions and networking system including strategies to improve emotional stability and social support in order to facilitate their academic adjustment.

Abstract PDF

The purpose of this study was to examine the possible selves and learning motivation of the depressed students, and the effects of possible selves in balance on learning motivation. Participants were 479 college students and the data of depression, possible selves, and learning motivation were obtained through self reports. The results showed that depressed students had negative possible selves and their level of learning motivation was low. Thereafter, 76 depressed students participated in the following experiment. Four different possible selves conditions (balanced condition, positive condition, negative condition, control condition) were generated by manipulating possible selves and participants’ learning motivation were measured using Raven’s Progressive Matrices (RPM). The results of this study indicated that there were motivational differences between types of possible selves especially for difficulty, quantity, and accuracy of the task. Participants in balance type selected more challenging task, solved more items, and worked out more accurately than those in negative type. These results imply that balance in possible selves will be effective for improving motivation of the depressed students. Finally, the limitation of this study were discussed.

Abstract PDF

The purpose of this descriptive study was to investigate the effects of personality and coping behavior on clinical practice stress in nursing students which was experienced at clinical practice. The data were collected using questionnaire from the convenience sample of 88 nursing students. The data were collected from May 21 to 31, 2016. Data were analyzed with independent t-test, one way ANOVA, Pearson correlation coefficients, and multiple regression by using SPSS version 23.0. The mean score for clinical practice stress was 1.43±0.62, and the score for student domain (1.73±0.96) was the highest in clinical practice stress. Among the big five personality traits, neuroticism had positive correlation (r=.356, p=.001) with the clinical practice stress. Coping behavior (r=.285, p=.007) and passive coping behavior (r=.327, p=.002) also had positive correlation with the clinical practice stress in nursing students. The significant major predictors of clinical practice stress were neuroticism (β=.31) and passive coping behavior (β=.27). The explained variances for clinical practice stress was 18% in nursing students. Therefore, development of a program on enhancing personality and coping behavior to reduce clinical practice stress is needed.

Abstract PDF

Savoring is one of the positive emotion regulation strategies. This study examined the mediating effects of rumination on the relationship between savoring and psychological health. For this purpose, we measured Savoring Belief Index (SBI), Rumination Response Scale (RRS), Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression Scale (CES-D), Concise Measure of Subjective Well-being (COMOSWB) to a sample of 242 undergraduate and graduate students. Correlation analysis results showed that savoring belief was negatively correlated with rumination and depression, and positively correlated with subjective wellbeing. In regression analysis, rumination mediated the relationship between savoring and depression and subjective wellbeing. These results suggest that savoring may reduce negative thoughts and emotions, and promote well-being. The implications of this study are discussed with future suggestions.

Abstract PDF

The purpose of this study was to investigate how physical activity levels, internet use, and stress/depression differ, based on Body Mass Index (BMI). The study assessed the impact that internet use may have on physical activity, fatness, and mental health, using data from the 2014 Korea Media Panel Survey. The 2014 Korea Media Panel Survey collected data from 6,568 Korean participants, who ranged in age from 19 to 60 years. Data collection addressed BMI, numbers of days per week for physical activity, internet use, and the levels of stress and depression. When participant data was grouped by BMI levels, it was found that the overweight group had significantly higher level of vigorous physical activity, when compared to the normal weight group. The analysis also showed that the obese group had significantly higher levels of vigorous physical activity, when compared to the underweight and normal weight groups. In looking at mental health issues, when compared to normal weight individuals, the obese individuals had significantly higher levels of depression. Higher BMI levels were more likely to be associated with increased internet use, when compared with lower BMI levels, but the amount of increase was non-significant. The indication is that increased levels of internet use might reduce the amount of time spent on daily physical activities, and that reduction could result in an increased BMI and a decreased mental health status. Further studies are needed to better identify the association between internet use, physical activity, and mental health.
