Article
Objective The existing literature has focused little on the health-promoting role of resources for sleep. Mainly risk factors have been highlighted regarding mental health in general. Moreover, for the vulnerable age group of adolescents, resources and their relation to sleep have hardly been explored. Therefore, this study aims to investigate the...

Three-level clustered data commonly occur in social and behavioral research and are prominently analyzed using multilevel modeling. The influence of the clustering on estimation results is assessed with the intraclass correlation coefficients (ICCs), which indicate the fraction of variance in the outcome located at each higher level. However, ICCs...
Article
Background: Coping is considered to have an important influence on well-being, especially in adolescent refugees dealing with a high amount of stress. In addition, gender differences in coping are a common topic for research and are often attributed to differences in socialization between boys and girls. Aims: The study aims at clarifying the gende...
Article
Full-text available
Background: Studies on the health of minors with refugee background (RM) often focus on symptoms and risks. In contrast to these deficit-oriented approaches, the present study examined well-being and resources of RM. Aims: The aim was to get an overview of the extent to which RM differ from both minors with migration (MM) as well as native (NM) bac...

Background Young Middle Eastern male refugees are currently among the most vulnerable groups in Europe. Most of them have experienced potentially traumatic events (PTEs) such as rape, torture, or violent assaults. Compared to their peers, young refugees suffer more from internalizing and externalizing symptoms, especially when unaccompanied. Little...
Article
Statistics courses are challenging for many psychology students. We designed a ‘Painting and Puzzles Exercise Book for Statistics’ for first year psychology undergraduates, to repeat and deepen the course content and get prepared for the exam. We describe the development and characteristics of the book and report a longitudinal evaluation study. Us...

Objective The present cross-cultural study examined the factor structure, measurement invariance, and convergent validity of the Stress-Symptom and Well-Being Scales from the Stress and Coping Questionnaire for Children and Adolescents (SSKJ), originally in German, across gender and for five newly developed language versions: English, French, Russi...
Article
Statistics and methodology play a crucial role in psychological research, and university psychology courses teach students the theory and application of various statistical methods. However, students who conduct their own research projects oftentimes face problems which are specific to their data and cannot be solved using standard curricular proce...
Article
The coping scales from the Stress and Coping Questionnaire for Children and Adolescents (SSKJ 3–8; Lohaus, Eschenbeck, Kohlmann, & Klein-Heßling, 2018 ) are subscales of a theoretically based and empirically validated self-report instrument for assessing, originally in the German language, the five strategies of seeking social support, problem solv...
Article
This study investigated whether foster parents’ reports of their dyadic coping competencies differ from biological parents, whether there are differences with regard to the temporal associations between maternal and paternal dyadic coping in the two samples, and whether parental dyadic coping competencies predict future mental health problems in ch...
Article
Full-text available
In educational psychology, observational units are oftentimes nested within superordinate groups. Researchers need to account for hierarchy in the data by means of multilevel modeling, but especially in three-level longitudinal models, it is often unclear which sample size is necessary for reliable parameter estimation. To address this question, we...
Article
Full-text available
Background Biosafety is a key aspect in the international Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition, which offers student teams an amazing opportunity to pursue their own research projects in the field of Synthetic Biology. iGEM projects often involve the creation of genetically engineered bacterial strains. To minimize the risks associated...
Article
This paper focuses on the longitudinal relationships between foster children’s mental health problems and parental stress across a 1-year interval with three measurements. A sample of 94 foster children and a comparison group of 157 biological children and their families participated in this study. The age of the children was between 2 and 7 years....

Protein design is usually limited to 20 amino acids. Since the chemical abilities of these amino acids are limited, a lot of interesting functions are not applicable in protein design. We aim to enable the translational incorporation of non-canonical amino acids (ncAAs) through an expanded genetic code. First, we repurposed the rarely used amber st...
Article
Full-text available
Research on genetics and related topics has been a topic of discussion and concern for more than a century, especially with regards to the ethics of using the genetic code as a tool. In recent years, the emergence of synthetic biology offers solutions to many world problems, while also raising questions about its responsible use. Researchers in the...

We are exploring the application of unnatural base pairs (UBPs) as an expansion of the genetic code. To prevent loss of the unnatural base pair during reproduction we will utilize several systems including CRISPR/Cas9. The extended genetic code allows the ribosomal incorporation of several non-canonical amino acids (ncAAs) into peptides. With their...

Project
This sinergia project is a collaboration among multiple chairs of the department of Psychology of University of Zurich and University of Konstanz. PASEZ examines the impact of stress on romantic relationships and their development over time in a prospective longitudinal study design including three age cohorts (Partnerschaft und Stress: Entwicklung im Zeitverlauf; PASEZ). Furthermore, the impact of close relationships on the well-being of children is investigated. The project builds upon existing efforts to understand how couples and families change over time by emphasizing the role of (a) different facets of stress (extradyadic versus intradyadic stress, macro versus micro-stress, acute versus chronic stress), (b) coping (individual and dyadic coping), as well as (c) motivational processes (implicit and explicit motives, goals, commitment, etc.). The data of past waves of this ongoing longitudinal research project may be used for collaborative research purposes. https://www.psychologie.uzh.ch/de/bereiche/hea/kjpsych/forschung/laufende-projekte/paare/pasez/Scientific-collaboration.html
Project
Within the frame of the Consortium YOURHEALTH project "Stress, Health and Integration of Young Refugees: Discovering the Interrelations and Improving Access to Healthcare" a sub - project will be carried out in cooperation with the University of Education Schwäbisch Gmünd. The main aim of this research project is to analyse the developmental trajectory of young refugees in their new environment after their arrival in Germany. The second aim is to identify risk factors and resources that support or impede adjustment processes. Further information can be found here: http://www.uni-bielefeld.de/yourhealth
