4d ago
Abstract The influence of socio-economic status (SES) on child temperament and psychological symptoms was examined using a nationally representative sample in Singapore. Data were available for 2169 children from 1987 families. Caregivers' reports were obtained on children aged 4–6. SES was operationalized as an aggregation of household income per capita, parental education level and housing type. Compared to their counterparts from higher SES families, children from low-SES families tended to exhibit (a) higher negative affectivity but lower effortful control, and (b) higher internalizing and ..read more

Wiley Online Library » British Psychological Society
by Orla Gallagher, Emma E. Regan, Gary O'Reilly

Abstract Since its release the Power Threat Meaning Framework (PTMF) has received considerable interest and uptake. However, there have not yet been any attempts to review the scope of this emergent literature. This scoping review aimed to identify and synthesize: (1) all empirical research which utilized the PTMF in their methodologies, (2) the characteristics of these studies, (3) the different ways in which these studies utilized the PTMF, and (4) the key findings of these studies. This review was conducted in line with the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses ..read more

Coping styles and the developmental trajectories of anxiety symptoms in children during transition into early adolescence
Wiley Online Library » British Psychological Society
by Qiaochu Zhang
4d ago
Abstract The study investigated how active and avoidant coping styles predicted the trajectory membership of anxiety symptoms during the transition into early adolescence. A total of 321 Chinese children aged 9 to 10 years were recruited from a primary school in mainland China. Self-reported trait anxiety, coping styles and anxiety symptoms were assessed at baseline. After 6 months, self-reported anxiety symptoms were measured at three follow-up assessments with an interval of 6 months. Latent class growth modelling revealed high (18.7%) and low (81.3%) trajectories of anxiety symptoms in chil ..read more

A registered report survey of open research practices in psychology departments in the UK and Ireland
Wiley Online Library » British Psychological Society
by Priya Silverstein, Charlotte R. Pennington, Peter Branney, Daryl B. O'Connor, Emma Lawlor, Emer O'Brien, Dermot Lynott
4d ago
Abstract Open research practices seek to enhance the transparency and reproducibility of research. While there is evidence of increased uptake in these practices, such as study preregistration and open data, facilitated by new infrastructure and policies, little research has assessed general uptake of such practices across psychology university researchers. The current study estimates psychologists' level of engagement in open research practices across universities in the United Kingdom and Ireland, while also assessing possible explanatory factors that may impact their engagement. Data were c ..read more

Preserving the placebo effect after disclosure: A new perspective on non‐deceptive placebos
Wiley Online Library » British Psychological Society
by Mehran Emadi Andani, Diletta Barbiani, Marco Bonetto, Rudy Menegaldo, Bernardo Villa‐Sánchez, Mirta Fiorio
4d ago
Abstract The present study explores whether a particular style of placebo disclosure could serve as a tool to foster a renewed trust in one's own inherent resources and elicit a meaningful placebo effect. In a motor performance task, two placebo groups received inert transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) in each of four sessions along with information on its force-enhancing properties. Before the final session, one of the placebo groups was informed about the placebo, which was portrayed as a means to unleash an inherent potential. Along with force, we systematically monitored tas ..read more

Perceiving multiple truths: Does dialectical thinking harmonize colourblind and multicultural ideals?
Wiley Online Library » British Psychological Society
by Jessica Gale, Kumar Yogeeswaran
4d ago
Abstract Multicultural and colourblind approaches to managing diversity are often conceptualized to be antagonistic. However, in principle, both have underlying motives for social justice, making it important to understand how they may be psychologically reconciled. In the present research, we examined dialectical thinking as an individual characteristic or condition under which people may endorse them in a conciliatory way. Across five studies (three pre-registered; N = 1899), using well-established materials that have measured and experimentally manipulated dialectical thinking, we found tha ..read more

Satisfied on our own, yet ready to leave together: An actor–partner interdependence mediation model on job satisfaction and turnover intentions in leader–follower dyads
Wiley Online Library » British Psychological Society
by Marjolein C. J. Caniëls, Petru L. Curseu
4d ago
Abstract Drawing on conservation of resources theory and job embeddedness, this study aims to investigate crossovers of positivity and negativiy between leaders and their followers with respect to work-related variables (i.e. work engagement, emotional exhaustion, job satisfaction and turnover intentions). Two waves of multisource data were collected from 244 leader–follower dyads. An actor–partner interdependence model extended to mediation (APIMeM) was used to test two mediation models and examine crossovers between leaders and their followers. Findings show that negative events are positive ..read more

How victim sensitivity affects our attitudes and behaviour towards immigrants
Wiley Online Library » British Psychological Society
by Lucas John Emmanuel Köhler, Mario Gollwitzer
4d ago
Abstract Three studies explore the relation between victim sensitivity—the sensitivity to being a victim of injustice – and anti-immigration attitudes and behaviour. Based on theoretical considerations and prior research, we hypothesized that victim sensitivity positively predicts anti-immigration attitudes and behaviour over and above political orientation and ideology. Results from a longitudinal study (Study 1; N = 1038), a computerized online experiment (Study 2; N = 299), and a laboratory experiment (Study 3; N = 178) provide support for this hypothesis. Studies 2 and 3 indicate that a he ..read more
