Objetivos: Dois estudos independentes envolvendo duas amostras probabilísticas de idosos brasileiros residentes na comunidade (65 anos e mais) investigaram relações entre riscos associados à vulnerabilidade social relacionada a condições de gênero, idade e renda familiar; vulnerabilidade psicossocial indicada por depressão e experiências autorrelatadas de eventos estressantes; fragilidade biológica indicada pelo fenótipo de Linda M. Fried; e funcionalidade indicada por desempenho independente de atividades avançadas e instrumentais de vida diária. Adicionalmente, o Estudo 1 (N=624) investigou o efeito mediador de recursos sociais indicados por suporte social percebido e por arranjos de moradia, e o Estudo 2 (N=302) trabalhou sobre os efeitos mediadores dos recursos pessoais indicados por estratégias de enfrentamento e por percepção da eficácia do enfrentamento. Os estudos não foram comparativos, mas foram feitos em Campinas, Região Sudeste, e em Parnaíba, Região Nordeste, cidades com IDH-Ms contrastantes (respectivamente 0,852 e 0,674). Método: Em ambas as amostras houve prévia exclusão dos idosos que pontuaram abaixo da nota de corte ajustada por anos de escolaridade no Mini-Exame do Estado Mental, respectivamente 23...

Mestrado em Gestão de Recursos Humanos; O nosso estudo tem como objectivo principal a análise do stress ocupacional originado pelas condições de trabalho e o seu impacto na qualidade de vida no trabalho dos indivíduos, uma vez que os contextos laborais se têm tornado mais exigentes. Procurámos averiguar o efeito das exigências laborais em repercussões psicológicas, emocionais e comportamentais, e que papel desempenham os recursos laborais e pessoais nestas relações. Porquê que alguns indivíduos encaram estes contextos de trabalho como exigentes, e outros os encaram como desafiantes? Considerando uma amostra de 200 indivíduos trabalhadores, dos dois géneros sexuais, de diversos sectores e categorias profissionais, idades diferentes, e formação académica e vínculos contratuais variados, todas as respostas foram obtidas por preenchimento on-line de questionários individuais. Através da análise das dezasseis hipóteses colocadas, foi possível apurar que as exigências laborais agem como stressors organizacionais, condicionam comportamentos e emoções no local de trabalho, afectam o bem-estar psicológico e organizacional, e só os recursos (tanto laborais como pessoais) podem devolver algum equilíbrio a estas relações. Estes mostraram ter um importante papel motivacional e de atenuação do stress ocupacional.; Our study’s main objective is the analysis of the occupational stress originated on the working conditions and its impact in the individual quality of life at work...

B. L. Fredrickson’s (1998, 2001) broaden-and-build theory of positive emotions asserts that people’s daily experiences of positive emotions compound over time to build a variety of consequential personal resources. The authors tested this build hypothesis in a field experiment with working adults (n = 139), half of whom were randomly-assigned to begin a practice of loving-kindness meditation. Results showed that this meditation practice produced increases over time in daily experiences of positive emotions, which, in turn, produced increases in a wide range of personal resources (e.g., increased mindfulness, purpose in life, social support, decreased illness symptoms). In turn, these increments in personal resources predicted increased life satisfaction and reduced depressive symptoms. Discussion centers on how positive emotions are the mechanism of change for the type of mind-training practice studied here and how loving-kindness meditation is an intervention strategy that produces positive emotions in a way that outpaces the hedonic treadmill effect.

Work stress is endemic among direct care workers (DCWs) who serve people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Social resources, such as work social support, and personal resources, such as an internal locus of control, may help DCWs perceive work overload and other work-related stressors as less threatening and galvanize them to cope more effectively to prevent burnout. However, little is known about what resources are effective for coping with what types of work stress. Thus, we examined how work stress and social and personal resources are associated with burnout for DCWs.

Although home-based care (HBC) programs are widely implemented throughout Africa, their success depends on the existence of an enabling environment, including a referral system and supply of essential commodities. The objective of this study was to explore the current state of client referral patterns and practices by community care workers (CCWs), in an evolving environment of one rural South African sub-district. Using a participant triangulation approach, in-depth qualitative interviews were conducted with 17 CCWs, 32 HBC clients and 32 primary caregivers (PCGs). An open-ended interview guide was used for data collection. Participants were selected from comprehensive lists of CCWs and their clients, using a diversified criterion-based sampling method. Three independent researchers coded three sets of data – CCWs, Clients and PCGs, for referral patterns and practices of CCWs. Referrals from clinics and hospitals to HBC occurred infrequently, as only eight (25%) of the 32 clients interviewed were formally referred. Community care workers showed high levels of commitment and personal investment in supporting their clients to use the formal health care system. They went to the extent of using their own personal resources. Seven CCWs used their own money to ensure client access to clinics...

Thesis (Ph. D.)--University of Rochester. Dept. of Clinical and Social Sciences in Psychology, 2008 ; This study examined patterns of parent-child relations and adaptation in a sample of 169 boys and girls ages 13-15 with high lifetime exposure to psychosocial adversities. A central question was whether the quality of adolescents’ bonding with their primary caregiver was associated with differences in the ability to access and benefit from other interpersonal resources. Two alternative models were proposed to explain competent functioning in the context of low youth-parent bonding: (1) a compensatory relational model and (2) a non-relational self-reliant model. The former model posits that competent youths who report suboptimal bonding with their primary parent will have high levels of interpersonal supports outside of their immediate families, which may play a compensatory role and promote positive adjustment. The second model emphasizes continuity and specificity of resilient processes and suggests that low bonding competent youths may be less likely to turn to relational resources. Instead, this model points to self-reliance and personal mastery as pathways to competence.
Confirmatory factor analyses validated youth-parent bonding as a multi-measure construct based on adolescents’ reports of emotional and instrumental support...

This study contributes to current research on voice behaviour by investigating several under-explored drivers that motivate employees’ expression of constructive ideas about work-related issues. It draws from the concept of psychological climate to examine how voice behaviour is influenced by employees’ (1) personal resources (tenacity and passion for work), (2) perceptions of social interdependence (task and outcome interdependence), and (3) supervisor leadership style (transformational and transactional). Using a multi-source research design, surveys were administered to 226 employees and to 24 supervisors at a Canadian-based not-for-profit organization. The hypotheses are tested with hierarchical regression analysis. The results indicate that employees are more likely to engage in voice behaviour to the extent that they exhibit higher levels of passion for work. Further, their voice behaviour is lower to the extent that their supervisor adopts a transformational leadership style characterized by high performance expectations or a transactional leadership style based on contingent rewards and contingent punishment behaviours. The study reveals that there are no significant effects of tenacity, social interdependence, and behaviour-focused transformational leadership on voice. The findings have significant implications for organizations that seek to encourage employee behaviours that help improve current work practices or undo harmful situations.

Already one of the poorest regions in Indonesia, the island of Nias was badly affected by the twin disasters of the 26 December 2004 tsunami and a devastating earthquake that struck three months later, on 28 March 2005. Now, more than two years after the disasters and despite the significant progress that has undoubtedly been made, some troubling trends are starting to emerge, of which this report takes stock. In particular, funds are not being disbursed at the desired pace as the reconstruction effort faces enormous implementation challenges. The allocation of significant resources for reconstruction, as well as the decentralization process, entails both opportunities and challenges for the development of Nias. This report assists in making use of those opportunities and overcoming the challenges by informing the planning and budgeting process of the two district governments in Nias, and analyzing constraints in public financial management in both districts, as well as identifying key gaps in the reconstruction process.

Im Anschluss an Diagnose und Behandlung treten bei den meisten an Brustkrebs erkrankten Frauen eine Vielzahl psychischer und sozialer Probleme sowie physische Beeinträchtigungen auf. „Sport nach Krebs“ stellt ein ambulantes, wohnortnahes Nachsorgekonzept in der Rehabilitation dar, das speziell für brustkrebsoperierte Frauen von den Landessportverbänden angeboten wird. Neben der Verbesserung funktioneller behandlungsbedingter Beeinträchtigungen sollen die positiven Wirkungen von Bewegung, Spiel und Sport die Lebensqualität der Teilnehmerinnen erhöhen. Die vorliegende Arbeit geht der Frage nach, inwieweit sich die sportlichen Aktivitäten in einer Gruppe Gleichbetroffener in physischer, psychischer und sozialer Hinsicht auf den Prozess der Krankheitsbewältigung auswirken. Die Erkenntnisgewinnung erfolgte mittels qualitativer und quantitativer Methoden zum einen anhand teilnehmender Beobachtung und Interviews mit Frauen einer Tübinger Krebssportgruppe und zum anderen durch eine Fragebogenuntersuchung an 264 Teilnehmerinnen verschiedener Krebssportgruppen aus Baden-Württemberg. Dabei zeigte sich, dass im /beim Krebssport unterschiedliche Bewältigungsformen angesprochen werden, die sich übereinstimmend mit Erkenntnissen der psychoonkologischen Copingforschung im Anpassungsprozess an die Erkrankung als effektiv erwiesen haben. Als aktives und selbstbestimmtes Verhalten zeichnet sich die Teilnahme am Krebssport durch einen ereignisdistanzierten Umgang mit der Krankheit aus...

The present study contributes to the literature on the Job Demands-resources model in the italian school context. the aim of this paper is to examine how the interaction between work-family conflict (i.e., a typical job demand) and opportunities to learn and to develop and self-efficacy (i.e., typical job and personal resources, respectively) affect the core dimensions of burnout (exhaustion and depersonalization) and work engagement (vigor and dedication). Hypotheses were tested with a cross-sectional design among 143 teachers of a junior high school in the north of Italy. Results of moderated multiple regression analysis partially supported the hypotheses as the opportunities to learn and to develop buffered against the aversive effects of work-family conflict on depersonalization, whereas self-efficacy moderated the relationship between work-family conflict and vigor. From a practical viewpoint, our findings suggest that opportunities to learn and to develop and self-efficacy are important re- sources that help teachers to reduce the negative effects related to work-family conflict.; El presente estudio contribuye a la literatura sobre el modelo de demandas y recursos laborales en el contexto escolar italiano.

In people suffering from schizophrenia, major areas of everyday life are impaired, including independent living, productive activities and social relationships. Enhanced understanding of factors that hinder real-life functioning is vital for treatments to translate into more positive outcomes. The goal of the present study was to identify predictors of real-life functioning in people with schizophrenia, and to assess their relative contribution. Based on previous literature and clinical experience, several factors were selected and grouped into three categories: illness-related variables, personal resources and context-related factors. Some of these variables were never investigated before in relationship with real-life functioning. In 921 patients with schizophrenia living in the community, we found that variables relevant to the disease, personal resources and social context explain 53.8% of real-life functioning variance in a structural equation model. Neurocognition exhibited the strongest, though indirect, association with real-life functioning. Positive symptoms and disorganization, as well as avolition, proved to have significant direct and indirect effects, while depression had no significant association and poor emotional expression was only indirectly and weakly related to real-life functioning. Availability of a disability pension and access to social and family incentives also showed a significant direct association with functioning. Social cognition...

Members of social groups face a trade-off between investing selfish effort for themselves and investing cooperative effort to produce a shared group resource. Many group resources are shared equitably: they may be intrinsically non-excludable public goods, such as vigilance against predators, or so large that there is little cost to sharing, such as cooperatively hunted big game. However, group members' personal resources, such as food hunted individually, may be monopolizable. In such cases, an individual may benefit by investing effort in taking others' personal resources, and in defending one's own resources against others. We use a game theoretic “tug-of-war” model to predict that when such competition over personal resources is possible, players will contribute more towards a group resource, and also obtain higher payoffs from doing so. We test and find support for these predictions in two laboratory economic games with humans, comparing people's investment decisions in games with and without the options to compete over personal resources or invest in a group resource. Our results help explain why people cooperatively contribute to group resources, suggest how a tragedy of the commons may be avoided, and highlight unifying features in the evolution of cooperation and competition in human and non-human societies.

Este artículo analiza los factores que obstaculizan y facilitan el cese o la reducción de la violencia de género en la pareja. Según la revisión de literatura esos factores están relacionados con recursos externos y personales. Los recursos externos abarcan la respuesta de la red social y de las instituciones ante el maltrato, y el acceso a los recursos materiales. Los recursos personales comprenden las estrategias de afrontamiento, resiliencia y creencias. Se propone que la recuperación de la violencia depende de la posibilidad de la mujer contar con recursos externos adecuados y de conectar con sus recursos personales. Comprender esos recursos permite la promoción de intervenciones que instrumentalicen las redes y las instituciones y favorezcan el empoderamiento para que ellas resistan a la violencia; This article analyses the factors that contribute and impede the cessation or reduction of partner violence. According to the literature review these factors are related to personal and external factors. The external factors are related to the answer given by the social network and social services toward gender violence in couples as well as acceding to material resources. The personal resources are described as coping strategies...

This paper aims at disseminating the experience of recruiting and selecting human resources in a psychiatric hospital in the city of Ribeirão Preto, a philanthropic institution with one hundred and four beds that assists pharmaco-dependent patients with mental problems. It presently has eighty-four employees and a high staff turnover in different sectors. As trainees, we realized that the high turnover impaieds the development of activities at the organization as well as prevented a better care delivery to clients. Therefore, we were invited to integrate a team that was made responsible for the recruitment and selection of human resources for this institution. After these procedures and the respective follow-up by those in charge of different sectors, our purpose is to reduce the turnover, implement larger institutional engagement and more synchrony among employees, reduce expenses and bureaucratic activities related to hiring and laying off personnel, reduce operational work and implementing more assisting activities in terms of planning, orientation, execution and evaluation.; El objetivo de este estudio es divulgar la experiencia de reclutamiento y selección de recursos humanos en un hospital psiquiátrico de Ribeirão Preto.

In recent years, early retirement has attracted increasing attention in the literature. Using a larger Italian-Spanish sample, this study examines the push and pull factors related to early retirees´ mental health status, as well as the moderating effects of perceived self-efficacy on the relationships between reasons for early retirement and mental health. Analyses revealed that poor retirees´ mental health is positively correlated to the push factor Pressure from Employer and negatively related to the pull factor Pursue Own Interests. Thus, mental health status is better for Italian retirees than for their Spanish counterparts. The Italian sample shows that Pursue Own Interests was negatively related to poorer mental health particularly under the low self-efficacy condition. Findings suggest that mental health depends on both the motivating reasons that lead people to retire early and the personal resources available to them to manage this psychosocial transition.

The present study explores whether psychological empowerment may act as a personal resource mediating the motivational process from job resources (i.e., task autonomy, skill utilization, social support from supervisors and social support from colleagues) to work engagement. Regression analysis using MEDIATE macros in a sample of Chilean public workers (N = 1,313) lent support to the mediation hypothesis: Psychological empowerment carried the effect of task autonomy, skill utilization, and social support from supervisors on work engagement. These results suggest that job resources may increase the perception of being empowered at work, which then represents an important factor to enhance work engagement. Psychological empowerment is thus a pathway to promote wellbeing in organisations.

ORIENTATION: In work and organisational psychology, the adverse effects of job demands have often been demonstrated empirically for various indicators of job strain. RESEARCH PURPOSE: Using the Job Demands-Resources (JD-R) model as a theoretical framework, the present study examined the role of compassion satisfaction, conceptualised as a personal resource, in buffering the relationship between job demands and job strain. MOTIVATION FOR THE STUDY: Accordingly, four demanding aspects of the job (i.e. role overload, insufficiency, ambiguity and conflict) and one personal resource (i.e. compassion satisfaction) were used to test the central hypothesis that the interaction between (high) job demands and (low) personal resources produces the highest levels of anxiety and depression as indicators of job strain. RESEARCH DESIGN, APPROACH AND METHOD: Hypotheses were tested amongst 122 military chaplains. MAIN FINDINGS: Results showed that compassion satisfaction partially moderated the relationship between job demands and job strain. More specifically, when compassion satisfaction was high, the effect of role overload on job strain was significantly reduced. However, the relationships between the other three role stressors and job strain were not offset by compassion satisfaction. PRACTICAL/MANAGERIAL IMPLICATIONS: The theoretical and practical implications of these findings for the JD-R model are discussed. CONTRIBUTION/VALUE-ADD: Despite the limitations of this study...
