Questions related to Psychosocial
New ideas, new concepts in science and art arise as a result of human creativity, innovation, emotional intelligence, the need for self-realization, the need to be appreciated by other people.
These are the values at the very top of Maslov's pyramid. Human higher needs arose through the evolution of human consciousness and intelligence under conditions of multi-generational development of sociobiological and psychosocial determinants.
On the other hand, artificial intelligence is being developed, which will probably be used in various fields of technological information services, including multi-criteria, based on complex data processing algorithms.
In view of the above, the current question is: Can innovations be or can be created by artificial intelligence or only by man?
Please, answer, comments.
I invite you to the discussion.
The swift spread of brain-based interventions for the alleviation of mental torment is a phenomenon that captivates the modern world. Yet, their efficacy remains limited in isolation, and it is only through the delicate balance with psychosocial treatments that their true potential may be realized.
But alas, this harmonious union is greatly understudied, leaving many to question the motives of our scientists and their seemingly dangerous adherence to reductionism. How, then, may we protect against the threat of a technology that seeks to impose its norms without sufficient clinical counterbalance?
Does anyone know how to split a nominal variable on jamovi? I’ve attached an image of my data.
I am studying the effect of prematurity on psychosocial outcomes in adulthood
I want to do a correlation between pre-term/full-term and each psychosocial outcome (self-esteem, life satisfaction etc…).
Obviously if I run the correlation as it is now, it gives me one statistic, and doesn’t break it down into pre and full term.
How would I go about this?
I want to do a psychological analysis of a political office holder and I am looking for the necessary metrics and things to consider, given that my background is not in psychology. Kindly help colleagues!
I continue, even here at the end of 2021, to see research on the mental health and psychosocial wellbeing of people in low- and middle-income countries, led by researchers in high income countries, for which no local collaborator is listed as a co-author. I find this troubling, and feel it lends credence to the view of much of our research as having a colonialist underpinning. If a study reports on help- seeking behavior among displaced people in Country X, or Intimate Partner Violence in Occupied Country Y, or patterns of distress among survivors of violence in Country Z, shouldn't people from the target countries & communities be involved in all aspects of the research, including co-authorship on publications?
There are psychosocial factor that come up during pubery for all Adolescent, especially with autism.
What's difference between their behavior in this area. And how we can help them to over come on it?
I am reviewing several clinical practice guidelines to verify if psychosocial risk factors are considered.
I want to make a systematic review on this subject because it is necessary to include it in the Guides and Protocols of clinical practice.
Emerging adults have multitudes of psychosocial stressors. However, it is not clear to what extent does regional variation determines the age of onset of major mental disorders.
I want to make connections between the real world and the impact these events have on human development. Just any questions that relate to development and the 3 domains: physical, cognitive, and psychosocial.
(1) Background: The COVID-19 pandemic forced people from all around the globe to strongly modify their daily routines, putting a significant strain on the social aspects of daily lives. While the first wave of the pandemic was a very challenging time in all countries, it is still uncertain whether various lockdown intensities and infection rates differed regarding their psychosocial impact. This work therefore aimed to investigate (i) the psychosocial effects of home confinement in two European countries that underwent different lockdown intensities: Italy and the Netherlands and (ii) the role of communication technology in relation to feelings of loneliness. (2) Methods: A cross-sectional online survey inquiring about different psychosocial variables and the use of and satisfaction towards communication technology was circulated among the general public during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. In total, 629 participants (66% female, 68% from the Netherlands) answered each question twice, referring to “before” and “during” the pandemic. (3) Results: We found significant negative effects of COVID-19 home confinement on depressive feelings (p < 0.001, %∆ = +54%), loneliness (p < 0.001, %∆ = +37.3%), life satisfaction (p < 0.001, %∆ = −19.8%) and mental wellbeing (p < 0.001, %∆ = −10.6%) which were accompanied with a significantly increased need for psychosocial support (p < 0.001, %∆ = +17.3%). However, the magnitude of psychosocial impact did not significantly differ between residents undergoing a more intense (Italy) versus a less intense (Netherlands) lockdown, although the decrease in social participation was found to be significantly different for both countries (z = −7.714, p < 0.001). Furthermore, our findings demonstrate that the increase in loneliness was associated with the adoption of new digital communication tools (r = 0.21, p < 0.001), and significantly higher for individuals who started to adopt at least one new digital communication tool during confinement than for those who did not (z = −4.252, p < 0.001). (4) Conclusions: This study highlights that, although COVID-19 home confinement significantly impacted psychosocial wellbeing during the first wave of the pandemic, this impact did not differ based on lockdown intensity. Recognizing the increasing adoption of digital communication technology in an attempt to reduce lockdown loneliness, future studies should investigate what is needed from the technology to achieve this effect.
I am looking for standard survey questions that need to be designed to identify and analyse psychosocial risk factors and the evaluation of the organizational environment say work culture, work stress, peer relationships, responsibilities, work-life balance, etc for employees working in Mexico.
" Psychosocial Issues among Breast Cancer Patients in Asian Developing Countries" is my article but another Sajid Iqbal has added it to his profile on research gate, how can we let him know his false attribution please.
I am interested in the determinants of quality of life (QoL) for parents of chronically ill children. The respondents are the father and mother of the same family. My dependent variable is the QoL of the parents (quantitative variable) with covariates such as socio-demographic, socioeconomic and psychosocial variables. The question I am trying to answer is: What are the determinants of parental QoL?
So what models should I use between GEE and LMM?
Thank you for your assistance
I intend to research (quantitatively) "The impact of COVID-19 lockdown on the 'psychosocial landscape' of the economically middle-class population (the number of middle-class population is around 550000) in Jaffna district, Sri Lanka.
I prepared a structured questionnaire, which inquires how people have complied with the advice and guidelines of the WHO and the government authorities; how are they affected psychologically, how do they economically cope with the current crisis, etc. So far, I have got a response from randomly selected participants. Is the sample size enough to draw the result?
Dear fellow researchers ;
A friend of mine is currently investigating how he can bring local youths with various psycho-social issues together by music. More specifically : he's aiming to see if local houses for youth can be used to encourage them to make hip hop, rap or other music.
This to encourage them to get off the streets, stay away from drugs, bad peers etc.
I'm looking for your very valued opinions on this topics and I am definitely interested in any research concerning this topic.
At War Child Holland, we want a simple and brief set of measures, in Arabic, that we can use for a simple pre-post evaluation of our life skills intervention. Not high level research, just an initial assessment of change over time. Thanks!
Can anyone explain or point me in the direction of resources that explain the analytics of social power and what is meant by Psychosocial Desire in the context of Psychoanalysis and the Psychosocial? Particular works I've heard of include those written by Derek Hook and Paul Frosh. Many thanks.
I am working on a research concerning psychosocial strain at work, in relation with working conditions, decision-making processes and system dynamics.
What would be an interesting topic for a PhD thesis with regards to cerebral palsy, from a clinical psychology perspective. It could also involve designing new models or interventions. My understanding is that cerebral palsy results in a lot of behavioural difficulties which has a psychological effect on the caregivers as well as the siblings. The effects of the first diagnosis is a crucial point, as well as how the mother-child attachment is affected.
I work part time for a database of instruments. They are primarily medical and psychosocial, but we are attempting to add instruments that measure technology use assessment, especially in education. (I am also interested in them for my research.) It is a bibliographic database, accessible through EBSCO and Ovid, and authors are welcome to submit published articles that contain descriptions of their instruments for inclusion in the database. Authors can also, if desired, submit the instrument and scoring information, and we will share it with database users who request it.
I ran across this database for the first time 3 years ago, and was amazed to learn about it. If you are interested in submitting, send a message to me and I'll give you more information.
At the same time, I am interested in thoughts of other researchers about this database. Did you know about it? (It's called HaPI.) Have you seen it? Do you think it would be valuable for your work? I'd really like to know your thoughts!
A scale titled " University Students Evaluation of Psychosocial Problems (USEPP) Scale" can be of help.
I am currently work on this project and wish to garner responses from fellow academicians and research on this platform.
Most of the published studies used proteases inhibitor during blood collection to prevent breakdown of oxytocin. I am also wondering since I did not collect the blood with aprotinin would I still be able to measure oxytocin? I intend to measure the effect of one of the psychosocial trial that I am involved in, thanks in advance!

A collaborator has stored saliva at multiple time points. There is only one saliva sample per time point and they are at varying times, which eliminates any chance of assessing things like salivary cortisol. Any recommendations for a biomarker that is sensitive to psychosocial stress? Thank you in advance!
As we all know that bioecological model give us many ideas about how environmental factors influence children's development, however, those factors almost refer to psychosocial environment, and the physical environmental factors such as air pollution, greenness and other geographical elements have been neglected. I am not sure my opinion is right or not. Are anyone have some ideas about it?

Puede alguien recomendar estudios desde la psicología sobre la conservación de bosques nativos por las comunidades? Muchas gracias.
Traditionally, studies have been carried out on the conservation of native forests of other disciplines, other than psychology. I have found related studies in community and environmental psychology, but not about the subject that I investigate.
Thank you very much.
I'm looking at what contributes to stress for speech and language therapists and would like to find out about how this aspect of communication adds to the psychosocial workload.
Many studies over the years have identified a variety of factors potentially leading to psychosocial risks to health in the workplace, such as stress at work, ineffective communication with the colleagues and management, excessive workloads, etc. Apart from the introducing good management practices, what are the measures to manage these risk factors?
The specific objectives are;

The COPSOQ II (Copenhagen Psychosocial Questionnaire II) has two scales for social support: One for SS from colleagues and one for SS from supervisors. Is there any literature that supports merging the two scores into one?
So, in the end, I would only have one score for social support. Can that be done at all?
Thank you very much!

What are the perspectives within the biopsychosocial model.
Applying concepts from the biopsychosocial model, including systems, reductionism and holism using topics related to local and/or global health issues using the biopsychosocial model
Can anyone help please? Thanks
In spite of the increased importance of student autonomy and empowerment in the 21st century, little literature seems to be available on the topic. Relatively classical authors such as Rosseau, Dewey, Freire, Bourdieu, Foucault, Rogers, Kolb, and Knowles are useful references, and David Boud’s edited book “Developing Student Autonomy in Learning” (Kogan, 1981/1988) is helpful, but the apparent absence of contemporary research and theory on the topic is puzzling. Does anyone know of any serious work produced in the last decade?
The focus of my research is the efficacy of community compulsory treatment orders /compulsion order in forensic mental health in terms of:
> Improve outcomes for patients
> reduce readmission
> improve access to care
A young colleague is preparing a ph.d. application on this theme. A proper review show that overweight in adults affect employment and career negatively (Robroek et al 2013, SJWEH). We want to study the effect of being overweight as child/adolescent on achievements and labor market participation in adulthood, independent of adult overweight - possibly mediated by psychosocial pathways as well as somatic health.
Psychological theories on causes for getting overweight and on consequenses of being overweight seem to be a field of limited clarity and consensus?
Input on good articles/reviews, relevant theories, useful data, ongoing projects and possible collaboration is very welcome.
Imagine you need to induce (psychosocial) stress in an individual enclosed within a space sized 2x3 meters. How would you do that? For the purpose of our experiment, we need to compare precisely defined individuals within enclosed space and we need to develop a stressed and non-stressed cohort... will be happy for any suggestions, Julie
Imagine you need to develop a stress model (possibly psychosocial stress) in an individual closed in a chamber of size of an average room. How would you induce psychosocial stress? We excluded timed physical activity (ergometry etc), as it inteferes with our calculations. We don't even know whether such model exist - we need to compare the "stressed" individuals with the "non-stressed" ones under precisely described conditions. Will be happy for any suggestions, Julie
Anyone with information about models that have proved effective for accompaniments and psychosocial interventions in cases of human rights violations such as torture, forced disappearance or forced Carrying.
The Istanbul Protocol is the most widely used international instrument for the investigation and documentation of torture cases, this was published in 2001 and revised in 2004; this is 12 years ago; we have seen changes in patterns and practices of torture, but it has reviewed this document; anyone know if it was done ?, or is there a similar proposal?
I am helping with development of a CBT based group program for the bipolar disorder. NICE Guidelines are rather disappointing in this regard. There are a few old meta analyses. Any help and guidance will be heplful.
In 2006 the UN adopted the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CDPcD); This suggests a profound change of look-interventionist welfare, one integrator preventive model. Of the most relevant and has caused more debate articles is the 12th referring to the legal capacity of persons with disabilities; This is particularly relevant in relation to involuntary placement of persons with severe psychiatric disorders. This presents a review of the relationship between psychiatric disorders and psychosocial disabilities, some reforms have been conducted in various countries with regard to their models of mental health disorders that are considered most disabling globally and some strategies for weigh the level of disability that may occur; as well as the situation in Mexico of these and the existing debate between some rights and involuntary detention of these patients.
Mexico faces a serious human rights crisis, and we found that the mental health services, especially those psychosocial and permir assist and provide support to people who have suffered violations of their human rights, are very sketchy, so we are building a Mexican model for this situation, which is why we wanted to share the idea and know the experience of other countries to enrich our perspective and advance the benefit of people.

I would like to conduct an interventional study to assess the potential role of psychosocial support in pregnant women exposed to gender based violencein rural resource constrained public health facilities. I would like to have one group and intend to collect baseline data (CTS2, Validated mental health assessment tools etc will be used) and post intervention data. The 13.5 % prevalence of violence during pregnancy is an estimate from the only similar study I could find done in a neighboring country (Uganda). What formula would be appropriate to calculate the sample size?
I am looking for a study by Germaine de Montmollin, quoted by Flament (1994) without reference. In this study, students were asked what they would do if they see "someone" fall (general case) or a "drunk person" fall (specific case). 87% of the students declare that they would help the person in the general case against 54% in the specific case. Their predicitions fit with real behavior.

Literature about adolescents with chronic diseases says that their adolescence is hard because of the new problem in their lives: the disease, coping with...
I want to know if the adolescence of a person who is newly diagnosed is the same of another adolescent who was diagnosed during childhood.
The problem during adolescence is to have the disease on itself, regardless of time since diagnosis, or the ones who were diagnosed during childhood are accustomed to disease and easily cope with, and they become independent from parents like healthy adolescents?
I'm researching about diabetes mellitus type 1 and inflammatory bowel disease.
A non-profit organisation welcomes people who are mostly homeless 4 mornings per week. They can have a coffee, get their mail, ask for different administrative advice and coupons for free services (cloths, laundry cleaning, hairdresser etc.).
I am looking for Positive Interventions which work for homeless people. These PIs would be to increase psychosocial needs or meaning in life.
Would you know of any examples?
