    ABSTRACT: Psychological resources such as hope have been suggested to positively influence quality of life (QoL) in chronic disorders. Here, we determined hope levels of psoriasis vulgaris in-patients and analyzed their relation to QoL. A total of 60 (29 male) patients were assessed for their QoL with a generic tool (WHOQOL-BREF) and a skin disease-specific instrument, the Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI). Hope levels were determined by use of the Basic Hope Inventory. We found a positive correlation between hope and all domains of WHOQOL-BREF (physical: r = 0.446, p = 0.000; psychological r = 0.464, p = 0.000; social r = 0.302, p = 0.019; environmental r = 0.480, p = 0000; and global r = 0.501, p = 0.000) and a negative correlation with DLQI (r = -0.281, p = 0.030) indicating higher QoL in patients with high hope. Hope was not correlated with disease severity or duration. Hope may play a substantial role in preventing QoL impairment in psoriasis. Psychotherapeutic interventions aimed at strengthening hope could improve QoL in this condition.

    ABSTRACT: Artykuł prezentuje wyniki badania, którego celem była analiza związków między zależnością/niezależnością od pola a wymiarami wsparcia społecznego w kontekście stresu. Zbadano 85 osób w wieku 19–58 lat (M = 36,4; SD = 10,66) za pomocą Berlińskich Skal Wsparcia Społecznego (BSSS), Skali Odczuwanego Stresu (PSS-10) oraz Testu Ukrytych Figur Witkina (GEFT). Wyniki pokazują, że istnieje ujemna niska korelacja pomiędzy niezależnym od pola stylem poznawczym i poszukiwanym wsparciem społecznym (r = -0,29). Nie wykryto istotnych związków niezależności od pola ze spostrzeganym i otrzymywanym wsparciem społecznym. Natomiast uzyskano interakcję zależności/niezależności od pola ze spostrzeganym wsparciem społecznym dla poziomu stresu (f2 = 13,3).

    ABSTRACT: errata: W Tabeli 3. pojawił się błąd dotyczący kolejności skrótów odnoszących się do trzech organizacji osobowości (opis w tekście oraz wartości podane w tabeli są prawidłowe). Prawidłowa kolejność to: PNB, PBN, PBN, PNB. Prawidłowa wersja tabeli dostępna do pobrania w pliku pdf jako dodatek do artykułu. This article presents pilot study verifying the assumption of O. Kernberg’s object relation theory concerning psychotic, borderline and neurotic personality organization. Three personality organization were characterized by the level of diffusion or integration identity, by dominance of primitive defensive operation centering around splitting or deny and by capacity for reality testing. These variables were tested by the following methods: Objective Measure of Ego-Identity Status (Adams, Bennion, Huh, 1989), Strength Ego (Barron, 1953) and Inventory of Defense Mechanisms (Gleser, Ihilevich, 1969) The research involved 30 patients with clinical diagnosis psychotic disorders (schizophrenic, psychotic disorders), 30 with anxiety disorders and neurosis and 30 with borderline personality disorder (assess by Leichsenring’s BPI). These groups was compared. The discriminative analyses show that three variables: diffusion identity, level of primitive or were mature defense mechanisms and capacity for reality testing explain about 67-87% qualification to one of three different groups of pathological personality organization.

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of this paper is to present the results of the pilot research on associations of the factor structure of psychopathy and the dimensions of the five-factor model of personality (FFM). The presented findings are of a preliminary and exploratory nature. They provide a contribution do polish adaptation of the Psychopatic Personality Inventory -Revised. The presented study belongs to the research stream claiming, that psychopathy can be described and understood in terms of personality traits from some models of personality. The paper refers to two approaches, that allow to compare the results of empirical studies, which are composed of attempts to identify a basic personality profiles for psychopathy in terms of five-factor model. The first one is the assessment of these relationships by experts, the second one - the translation a prototypical psychopathy, as measured by the Hare’a Psychopathic Checklist -Revised, into the language of five-factor model. The aim of the research was: 1) to investigate the relations between the intensity of psychopathy and the configuration of traits of psychopaty, according to PPI-R, and the profile of factors and dimensions of five-factor model of personality, as measured by the NEO-Personality Inventory-Revised; 2) to investigate similarities between the profiles of personality and the results of translation of psychopathic traits and of the results of expert description.

    ABSTRACT: This article aim to describe borderline personality organization from the defense mechanisms constellation point of view . A brief theoretical review has been provided, and results of classical and more recent empirical studies in this area have been presented. The author’s own research on defense mechanisms in individuals with BPO has been described. The results correspondent with accepted theoretical assumptions, namely, that individuals with BPO are characterized by using primitive defense mechanisms, and with a concomitant using of more developmentally mature defenses.
