I want to assess the well-being of farmers in Southeast through both an assets and psychological perspective and am having trouble finding a good measurement scale for the latter. Ideally, I want to use a 3-item per scale survey (18 questions in total) but after some research I realize this version has been internally inconsistent. The results from this survey tool will likely be summed to produce a single index value since psychological well-being is only one component of my research. In either case of looking at it from a unidimensional or multidimensional perspective, which short versions of the Psychological Well-Being Scale do you recommend? What is the best process for selecting the items to ensure they are statistically valid and culturally appropriate?
OR do you recommend another assessment tool entirely? Please link the survey questions if available.

I would like to join or initiate a network with this goal in mind. I cannot fathom why, especially in view of the documented psychological impact of COVID-19, hardly any secondary or tertiary institutions, in the US and abroad, are requiring these subjects to be taught. Some universities and high schools in the US, UK and Australia are offering courses on psychogical wellbeing AKA "happiness" as electives, but the content is often scientifically shallow and not integrated with student services.

Thanks, I need to catch up and read the Palgrave Handbook. Having said that, as far as I know, many of the Positive Education interventions did not use standard measures of depression or in some cases, wellbeing, to evaluate outcomes. But I should read up on the latest.

Question

I want to understand the effect of around 7 to 8 socio-demographic factors on psychological well-being. The psychological well-being scale has 6 sub-scales/domains.
Now, some of the socio-demographic factors such as gender, pension status, having or not having children have 2 groups. Some other socio-demographic factors have more than 2 groups/categories such as educational level, income level etc.
Should I do t-test for the factors that have 2 groups, and one-way ANOVAs for the factors that have 3 or more groups? OR
Should I be doing one-way MANOVAs [given that psychological well-being has 6 dimensions] for each socio-demographic factor?
Relevant answer
Answer
a) Why wouldn't the OP want to use something akin to MANOVA where all 6 dimensions in the dependent variable would be looked at simultaneously ? Why is looking at each dimension separately preferable ?
b) Why is using separate t-tests and anovas preferable to combining several independent variables into a single model ?

Is the psychological well-being questionnaire proposed by Ryff an adequate instrument to measure psychological well-being? I have read that some of the subscales have little reliability and do not work very well; however, it is one of the most used instruments and this is an advantage to compare results with other studies. Is there any other questionnaire that you recommend, better than this one?

Base on my findings so far in this area of study (well being), RYFF scale remains a valid scale for this measurement. I conducted a study using the scale. However i adopted only the subsections that were relevant to my area of concern. Attached is a copy of the publication in case someone still need to see

Hello all,
Our research team is currently conducting a meta-analysis to examine the association between self-disclosure in social media and psychological well-being. We have identified several published studies and some unpublished studies, including thesis, and are now attempting to seek more unpublished work from researchers in the field. We would greatly appreciate it if you could share with us any unpublished data you may have or in press/in-progress research findings so that we can include your data/findings in our analysis and cite your work.
Studies that meet the following criteria will be of relevance:
- Studied self-disclosure in social media and examined its relationship with some forms of psychological well-being.
- Measured one or more of the following self-disclosure dimensions: amount/breadth, depth/intimacy, intent, valence/positivity, or honesty/accuracy.
- Measured one or more of the following psychological well-being measures: depression, social anxiety, stress, loneliness, life satisfaction, positive affect, negative affect.
Where possible, we would like to request the following data from you:
- Correlation coefficient(s) between self-disclosure (amount/breadth and/or depth/intimacy and/or intent and/or valence/positivity and/or honesty/accuracy) and psychological well-being (depression and/or social anxiety and/or stress and/or loneliness and/or life satisfaction and/or positive affect and/or negative affect.)
- Sample N
- The proportion of female participants (in percentage)
- Mean and SD of the age of the participants
- The social media platform(s) examined, e.g., Facebook, Twitter
- The ethnicity of the participants and the location of data collection took place
- Information of the scales used to measure self-disclosure and psychological well-being
The research team is based at the Department of Media and Communication, City University of Hong Kong. If you are able to share any relevant work or have any further questions about this, please send an email to tszhchu2-c@my.cityu.edu.hk

Dear Mengr,
I commend your for this interesting project. I do not have a sample to offer. But I have performed two meta-analyses on individual participant data (IPDMA) from published and also unpublished raw datasets. I will just briefly share my experiences and recommendations on search strategy.
I highly recommend using a multi-stranded search stratety in order to find available datasets (also unpublished). We did three types of searches:
1) Network searches. We regularly e-mailed our peer research collegues for new samples/surveys, especially unpublished surveys or datasets. All collaborators were offered signed agreements on the possibility for co-authorship if their data were used in publications, as long as they themselves participated in the process according to ICMJE rules for authorship.
2) Citation search. We selected eight central existing publications of our research field using the kind af datasets we were interested in. New publictions would most likely reference at least one of these publications. We used Web of Science to extract lists of citing articles.
3) Literature search. Traditional search using structured search strings in several relevant research indexes (PubMed, Medline, Embase, PsycInfo, Web of Science, Google Scholar).
Together we were able to locate both published and unpublished datasets.
I attach a methological article on how we built the latest version of our Data Pool, in case you might find it useful in regards to your own project.
Kind regards

Question

Empirical studies found that fear (e.g., fear of happiness) is detrimental to one's psychological well-being. While the result is consistent with our common beliefs, I wonder what theory can be used to explain the negative relationship.
Relevant answer
Answer
The concept of fear is a "typically fuzzy" concept (Morin, 1993). Situated between anguish, fear and dread at the individual level, and between panic and dread at the collective level, fear is a common ingredient in many phenomena within which it varies in its manifestations, causes and consequences. Its examination draws on a variety of disciplines, from neuroscience to social science, whose perspectives must be considered in order to identify how fear can be addressed in social psychology.
In psychology, fear is classified as an emotion. It is also classified as such by common sense. For example, a body of cross-cultural research (Scherer et al., 1986) has shown that fear is one of the meanings generally attributed to the term emotion, along with joy, sadness, anger and love. However, this research shows that fear is the emotion least linked to social situations. It would refer, in the current opinion, to situations representing a threat for the physical integrity (as the accidents of the circulation, the physical aggressions) or psychological (as the failure in situations of achievement, the disease, the taking of risk) or still to indirect perils (as the death of known persons, the supernatural, the action of external forces). There is a paradox there since these specific fears do not include any reference to the feelings of fear and social anxiety of which one observes today an intense expression in the opinion polls or the analyses of the sociological research relating to modernity.
The work carried out in psychology was focused on processes studied at the level of the individual, following the development of approaches to the passions, starting with Descartes, evolutionary currents following Darwin, and physiological currents following Cannon. Accompanying the development of psychology, research on emotion has experienced a growing expansion, especially since the 1960s thanks to the conjunction of two theoretical and empirical orientations. On the one hand, the emergence of cognitivism which revived interest in theoretical research, inspired by the work of Schachter (1964). On the other hand, the development of the psychobiological approach inspired by the work of Tomkins (1962). At present, there is a desire among psychologists to exchange and dialogue with neighboring disciplines, from neurology to the various social sciences.
Until now, fear has been considered in psychology as having the same characteristics as the other emotions and affective states as a prepared response structure that automatically intervenes in the adaptation to situations. LeDoux (1996) thus distinguishes the panics or the uncontrollable terrors, which would be of psychopathological character, and the current fears which, reasoned, act like a mechanism of alarm and vigilance vis-a-vis the danger and make it possible to react to new situations The emotions have for distinctive mark a rupture of continuity in the interaction individual-environment. Corresponding to physiological modifications that affect the organs controlled by the central nervous system, they result in changes in expression, color the subjective experience and lead to the deployment of specific actions. They are accompanied by cognitive changes, with an interruption of automatic activities, the focusing of attention, and a priority given to the information processing.

Hello friends,
I want to find some documents, which explain the effect of negative parenting practices on parental psychological well-being or mental health. Is there a plausible theory or research evidence to explain this relationship?
Current research evidence is mostly going from the opposite direction, that parental mental health will influence parenting practices. We hope to receive help from you. Thank you very much!

There is quite a bit of research on adverse parenting experiences and subsequent psychopathology. One widely used measure that we have relied on in some of our research is the Measure of Parental Style (MOPS). This article presents some of the research:

IJHRM has called for a special issue on the subjected-topic. If anyone is interested in working on this special issue, please contact me. Scholars should have a grip on comparative analysis and have published papers on emotional labour or relevant constructs.
This ‘Call for Papers’ entitled New HRM models for supporting managing emotional labour during emergencies invites HRM scholars to submit papers that develop new models and conceptualisations of HR’s role as the employee's champion, especially in relation to emergency workers. Consequently, we are interested in empirical papers that:
  1. Demonstrate the role of HRM in supporting front-line emergency workers, including those employees who undertake high levels of emotional work in potentially stressful environments.
  2. Integrate the role of HRM in the employee wellbeing-employee performance continuum.
  3. Develop and analyse HRM models that conceptualise the role of emotions in fostering employee wellbeing and the performance of emergency   workers confronted with high levels of emotional labour.
The provisional timeline is as follows:
  • ‘Call for Papers’ announced June 2020

Hello! So Ryff's psychological well-being scoring has no global scores right? And that it depends upon your sample distribution on how you go on about it. However, the scoring instructions her secretary sent me recommended that high and low scorers can be determined through for example getting the upper and lower 25% of the scores. So does that mean the scores in the middle will be disregarded? Will it be a risk if majority of scores are in the middle of the distribution?

I am struggling with what analysis to use for my data, I am currently looking at the effect of the 5 different personality traits (independents) on overall psychological well-being (dependent) with both being continuous variables. My sample size is quite small at 73. I have looked at normality, with neuroticism and overall psychological well not being not normally distributed.
I have done a pearsons correlation test finding every personality trait apart from conscientiousness to have a significant correlation with PWB (p<0.05). Then from this, I did a multiple regression analysis, but then the significance of all the traits is completely different to findings from the correlation, (e.g. extraversion and neuroticism had sig values of over 0.2, extraversion had a sig of 0.8)
How do I interpret this, am I doing the right analysis? data is not my strong point!
Relevant answer
Answer
The significance of regression coefficients can be very different from the significance of particular correlations with dependent variable. This is usually due to the substantial correlations between independents (multicollinearity). In regression analysis, the influence of predictors is partialized, so the effect of each predictor variable is genuine with taking away the effects of other predictors in the model. For the predicting purposes, only regression coefficient should be considered. The small sample size is certainly affecting the generalizability of your results.

The DASS-21 measures three variable; depression, anxiety and stress. Would like to know what statistical test is appropriate. Thank you.
Relevant answer
Answer
You could run three independent t-tests with gender as IV and DASS-21 as outcomes. I would correct the multiple analysis using a bonferonni correction (divide .05 by three to set you alpha level).
Or, even better, I would run a one-way MANOVA (Hotelling's analysis) with gender as the IV and the three sub-scales as the dependent variable composite. Also, I am not sure I would call the DV well-being as these constructs measure psychological distress, and research has shown that the presence of pathology does not necessarily mean the absence of well-being.

Hi everyone,
I am interested to find articles that talk about negative effect that support might have on a parent with developmentally chalenged child (e.g. giving advice when not asked for, criticism, innapropriate comments). I am mostly interested in this construct, but also search for papers that link consequential stress to well-being.
This topic is obviously not as appealing as positive side of social support and I have trouble finding reasearch that explored it among these parents. I would kindly ask for help in form of a reasearch paper, tip, hint, thought or direction in which I could turn my searches to. Of course, more recent papers that deal with this group specifically would be best, but I gratefully accept any recommendation that might help me improve my understanding of the topic (like classical work by KS Rook (1984) The negative side of social interaction: impact on psychological well-being or Shumaker, & Brownell, (1984).

The work of Lincoln (2000) on the link between social support, psychological wellbeing and the negative aspects of the interactions is worth having a look at. Likewise, you may also find it beneficial to examine the other side of the topic, which is the extent to which positive social support may trigger negative social, interactive behaviour (see for example, Hirsch, 2011).

For clarity, I collected data in which psychological well-being was measured within a specific population. The questionnaire I used was totalled to give a total score of psychological well-being. A high score is considered to reflect a high level of psychological well-being. I would now like to know on average, how many of my participants scored a high score, meaning they are psychologically well, and how many of my participants scored a low score, meaning they are psychologically unwell. What SPSS analysis can I run to find out how many of my participants are well and how many unwell??
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Monique,
First, you must recode the continuous variable "total score of the questionnaire" (eg., WELLB) in a new categorical variable with two categories (high level of psychological well-being and low level of psychological well-being) defining a cut-off point (or as many categories as you need, eg., also including a moderate level of wellbeing). For example: RECODE WELLB (Lowest thru xx = 1) (ELSE = 2) INTO WELLB_DIC EXECUTE. And then analyze with the utility "frequencies". Like this: VARIABLE FREQUENCIES = WELLB_DIC / ORDER = ANALYSIS.

Interesting question
Emotional intelligence and well-being are deeply related in the works of Dr. Daniel Goleman.
The fact of being able to recognize one's own and others' emotions as well as knowing how to manage them is a skill that can be developed; this brings with it a state of well-being or at least the construction of it.
There is another author, Dr. Daniel Siegel, who has explained how to develop this state through mindsight and mindfulness
I hope these references serve

Study 1: A developmental psychologist wants to examine differences in nightly sleep duration among easy, moderate and difficult infants. he knows that the effect size f would be 22, and he wants to reach 80% power with error probability of .05.
Study 2: A psychologist wants to examine the association between self esteem and life satisfaction, using rosenberg self esteem scale and satisfaction with life scale. She knows that the correlation p H1 would be approximately .30(correlation p H0 would be 0), and she wants to reach 95% power with an error probability of .001.
Study 3: A relationship scientist examined the difference in psychological well-being between married individuals and single individuals. He collected data from 160 people(80 married, 80 single). The first group’s well being average was 4.27 and SD was 1.3. He wants to know what his achieved power is.
I haven't ever used Gpower, these are example studies and I just want to know the right way to use Gpower and answers to these would be of big help. Thank you.
Relevant answer
Answer
G*Power is easy to use if you know what power is, and I agree you should use the manual. As you work through your problems, be sure to check your assumptions carefully. With an effect size f of 22 it is impossible to get a power as low as .8, because you have to have at least 2 in a group and the power with a total of 6 subjects is 1.0. Surely your effect size is wrong.

Dear researchers,
my personal work and passion is about supporting individuals in getting awareness about their personal values in order to enable them to set autonomous goals and to strive for intrinsically rather than extrinsic aspirations. I measure the effects on variables like goal attainment, subjective well-being, psychological well-being, and ecological as well as social behaviour.
To measure psychological well-being I use the psychological well-being scale by Ryff (1989). As I read a lot of studies in the area of self-determination theory, I read the very insightful empirical study by Brown & Ryan (2003) about the effects of mindfulness on different well-being scales. In that study they state (Brown & Ryan, p. 828) that they used subscales of Ryff's psych. wb scale to measure the satisfaction of the three psychological needs for autonomy, competence and relatedness. I wonder if this is possible with the subscales of Ryffs scale and if so, which subscales can be used to measure the three psychological needs validly.
I ask that question because I did a lot of studies with Ryff's psychological well-being scale and it would be very interesting for me, if I could use the scales also to measure the satisfaction of the psychological needs for autonomy, competence and relatedness. This could generate more insights.
Kind regards and thank you!

Dear researchers,
I am preparing a pre-/post test experiment for which I have an important question. I plan to do an intervention study that focusses on enhancing the independent psychological variables "mindfulness", "personal values awareness", "intrinsic values orientation" and "autonomy (self-concordance) of goals" of individuals. I plan to analyze how this intervention affects the dependant variables "goal engagement", "goal attainment", "subjective well-being", "psychological well-being" and certain health conditions like "depression", "anxiety" of the participants.
My specific question is, am I able to see how each of the independent variables contributes to each of the dependent variables. E.G. how "personal values" as one specific variable that was manipulated has affected each of the dependent variables. Or is it not possible to measure the causlities of each of the manipulated variables, because I manipulate 4 at a time? For me as a researcher it would be interesting to show causalities through my intervention and not only correlations.
It would be awesome to get some answers, as I am new to the methodoloy of experiments.

Here is a little fable.  One day I watched a grandfather, Leo, looking after his young granddaugther, Sarah.  Sarah had a pile of small cubes, some red and some blue.  There were two cups, one black and one white nearby.  She was picking up the cubes an placing them in either the white cup or the black one.  Every time she put a red in the black cup or a blue in the white cup a laughing noise came from near the cups, but not otherwise.  Sarah soon knew that red in a black cup or blue cube in a white cup causes a laugh.  Leo however knew this wasn't the case as he had a different world model to that of Sarah.
My message here is that experimental data together with a model may lead to an assertion of causality, but the validity of that assertion relies on the validity of the model not that of the data and the data analysis.

I am searching for literature (papers or books) on the thesis that welfare paternalism (that is, the infringement on the freedom of choice of a person aimed at improving his or her welfare) is self-defeating when the person does not understand why his/her freedom of choice ought to be restricted. The welfare of the person will be reduced because of his/her non-understanding. Conversely, if the person understands why there ought to exist restrictive constraints on his/her freedom of choice, he/she will accept these restrictive constraints, an acceptation which is better for his/her welfare.
For example, at a collective-political level, citizens would no longer – or, at least, would much less – suffer from the restrictive constraints upon democracy if they understood why constraints are needed to restrict the freedom of choice of temporary majorities. Constraints which are understood are better – for people's welfare – than constraints which are not understood.
Do you know any author, in economic or political theory, developing this thesis on the link between welfare paternalism and the comprehension of the constraints on freedom of choice?
Many thanks for your comments.

Looking back at Stefan's question, I notice that he speaks of some kind of manipulation of supply. This is not necessarily bad at least by modern marketing standards, talking, of course, about material goods. It may be worse when we talk about books, for example. Hiding/manifesting is fine as long as it concerned with material goods and is a privilege related to a firm's marketing policy. which does not break existent law. The manipulation of information  which should by public   law be available to all citizens is a different matter, on the other hand. 
So certain things may be examined case by case (e.g. public/private goods) something which might not have been disputed by Von Hayek who used to defend a natural, spontaneous social order. However, I must admit I am not especially familiar with his economic ideas.
Equally, I have to admit I am not quite familiar with "soft paternalistic" methods. Yet certain kinds of manipulation which clashes with civility and law are definitely unfavorable. I do not think anyone needs extremely uncivilized methods in order to "shop". Shopping freely is supposed to be a "therapy", not a kind of chess.
Thank you for including me in your discussion. Hoping to hear further examples from Regis and his colleagues,

Hello,
I am going to conduct an ESM study, in which I intend to ask participants how happy they feel at the moment several times per day during two or three weeks, and what they are doing, in order to link an activity to a mean level of happiness for instance. (not unlike what researchers are doing with DRM studies)
I want it to be as simple as possible for the participants, so my intention is to only ask one single question about their happiness at the moment (and a question about what they are doing). Searching through the litterature about happiness and subjective well being (SWB), I have found quite a lot of different measures, but most are complete surveys with multiple questions (which I want to avoid) or deal with overall life satisfaction ("overall, how happy are you with your life?").
So far, I haven't found a valid and reliable single question that would measure SWB. I am well aware that, since there are several dimensions to it, it is more rigorous to ask multiple questions, but once again, I really want it to be as simple as possible.
What question should I ask ? Something like : "How happy are you feeling right now?" ?
And the study will be conducted with French participants by the way, so if someone here knows of a french formulation that works well, that would be very helpful (as you can imagine, it is much harder to find established measures in French than in English).
Thank you.

Hi Hannah
I agree with Jennifer and would advocate for the CASP-19 or its shorter variant the CASP-12. It is a lot better at assessing older adult QOL than a number of current indicators because (1) it was designed specifically for older adults, and (2) it actually measure self-perceived QoL instead of proxy measure that focus on health or functioning. It is excellent. We've used it in our New Zealand longitudinal study for 4 waves now and it has been used widely in the European longitudinal ageing studies (i.e., ELSA, TILDA, SHARE) as well as some of the occupational cohort studies. There is a growing body of work attesting to its stability across countries. Please let me know if you need any links or related articles.

You first need to define which kind of psychological well-being you want to measure. There are several instruments available for measuring individual level psychological well being:
Satisfaction with life Scale (for cognitive domain of subjective well-being)
Positive and Negative Affect Scale (PANAS; for affective component of subjective well-being)
Ryff & Keyes' Scales of Psychological Well-Being (for measuring wellbeing in a eudaimonic perspective, seemingly the most relevant for your interest)
Keyes's Mental Health Continuum Scale (based on previous models especially the PWB model, the most up-to date of all, as far as I know)
I did not referred to the publications because there is always a possibility of finding updated versions of all the scales in many languages. You can just start searching by using the names of the scales.

Answer
Partly the answer to your question above is contingent on your research question--what you want to learn from participants.  Spiritual well-being would be a much tighter and more objective, hence easily measured, variable as Cinar indicates. This is particularly true for a quantitative study. Spirituality is a broader construct that can have many aspects such as spiritual beliefs, spiritual behaviors, spiritual support, etc. It would be better measured quantitatively with a scale, though both can be (and have been) scaled. Spirituality also does not preclude suffering which would be one antithesis of spiritual well-being.

She is an expert on demographic and social aspects of ageing, with particular reference to:
- well-being at later age and its relationship with social relations,
- the role of exchange of social support and its relationships with living conditions (rural or urban) and family arrangements (2), (3).

What are the environmental and psychological impact does urban sprawl have?
Relevant answer
Answer
Hello Shaun,
Rapid urbanization has many impacts on the local environmental conditions. Energy consumption and Air Pollution are none the less of prime importance. Apart from this, the urban water bodies are also being deteriorated (especially in developing countries, as was observed by me) due to unchecked dumping of waste. Not only the pollutants are added but also there is increased nutrification of such water bodies. Continuous nutrification leads to accelerated Eutrophication (also termed as Cultural Eutrophication). Ultimately the water bodies get shallower and shallower and gets converted in merely a land area with a depression.
Existence of Water Body has major impacts on local meteriological conditions as it affects evaporation rates and heating of earth's surface. Land surface in comparison to water surface gets heated up faster and average surface temperature of that area may increase.
Similar conditions may be observed in an area where dams are constructed. change in the micro climate and local weather conditions would easily be identified if you have before and after weather data.
I would strongly suggest proper urban planning and sustainable development if one wants development without destruction ( Though, complete elimination of deterioration can not be achieved... !)
