Question

Hi,
I'm aiming to conduct my first research project to finish my final master's year project. The project focus is to measure psychological employee well-being within my workplace (the UK NHS).
Reading the literature, there are lots of theories and measures of well-being, but unsurprisingly little agreement on a gold standard.
I'm looking to use quantitative data analysis for measuring well-being and have opted for a questionnaire based on Ryff's scales of well-being, as it's relatively straightforward and has been used for decades. However there's a lot of debate about its validity and scales. I'm wondering if someone can advise on using a different validated instrument that's straightforward to use, particularly within the NHS?
Thanks in advance

Good day everyone,
Please advise me.
I always wondered if one of the benefits of EQ is emotional well-being?
OR
Is emotional well-being a different subject on its own?
I am also trying to do a lit review, there is very limited information on emotional well-being to put it as a chapter on its own, hence I am not sure if this should be a benefit of EQ?
Many thanks

Answer
No comparto la idea de EQ. La inteligencia es única, un complejo que incluye tanto lo emocional como las operaciones llamadas racionales. El bienestar de un individuo depende del uso acertado (cosa que no siempre ocurre) que haga de la misma, en las diferentes circunstancias de su vida

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.

Resonance Breathing is a promising intervention for clients with substance use disorder (SUD). The intervention and technological advances (Apps) make it possible for people to train with the intervention by themselves and independent of location.
When planning a longer study for at-home use with an App over several weeks - what would you suggest would be the optimal length, frequency and duration of the overall training? That is, how many weeks, how often per week and how long per session (minutes)? Are there recommendations or best practice examples?
Our intended outcomes apart from HRV (pre/post) would include questionnaires about the SUD and fMRI. Specifically, executive functions, general well-being, substance use parameters.
Relevant answer
Answer
Hi Dominik,
The original protocol for HRV biofeedback training is 10 sessions, usually with 1 session per week (see Lehrer et al. attached), but we've also done studies with 8 sessions over 12 weeks and 3 sessions over 3 weeks, both of which produced good results for patients with SUD.
In both of these studies we modified the protocol to fit in the context the participants were in (i.e., university recovery housing and an inpatient SUD treatment facility). Sessions are usually 60min as it takes a while to get participants hooked up with equipment and to walk them through the day's training protocol.
In choosing your number of sessions consider what's most important in the study and who's in your sample. If this is a clinical trial of HRV biofeedback, I would do at least 5 sessions with participants and encourage daily practice between sessions to make sure folks get a sufficient dose.
Regarding practice time, we usually tell folks to do 20min/day, knowing they'll probably end up doing less. In a previous study we showed that 12 min of practice daily was sufficient to elicit significant reductions in negative affect and it didn't seem to matter if all the practice happened in one block each day, or was spread out throughout the day (Alayan et al.).
Also, a lot of people in our studies began using the breathing practice in the moment to manage acute stress and anxiety, even though we didn't instruct them to do so. Anecdotally people have reported this in-the-moment practice as being super helpful. Definitely something we plan on testing in future studies. If you can look at acute vs chronic practice effects in your study that would really help the field.
A couple of methodological suggestions: Be sure to track participants practice as you'll eventually want to check for practice effects in your analyses. Also, few studies to date have actually looked at substance use outcomes. Quite a few studies have shown HRV biofeedback reduces craving and other forms of negative affect in SUD patients, but whether this translates into actual reductions in substance use is an important open question.

We have survey 15 teachers and their students (6 - 14 students each) to find a correlation between teacher well-being and students' academic results. We are also looking at student-reported teacher relationship as a potential mediator.
Unfortunately, we have had to stop data collection due to COVID19.
We are considering using Spearman's think that it is most likely not sufficient. Is there a better alternative for this?
Should we also drop mediation analysis given the sample size obtained?
Relevant answer
Answer
Hong Hwee Note that your data have a multilevel/hierarchical structure (students nested within teachers). This is relevant for statistical inference (significance testing) and needs to be taken into account, for example, by using multilevel/hierarchical linear modeling to analyze the data. That being said, you have relatively few Level-2 units (teachers) which may limit your power.

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.

My discussion question is about an intertwined process of communication concepts development across digital marketing agencies or brands’ in-house communication departments. Do they think about the emotional well-being of their clients, audience, or consumers when they make decisions in digital communication strategies and in their choice of marketing performance tools?
Relevant answer
Answer
I think many marketing agencies work to play on the emotions of their clients. Many on positive emotions, but some on negative emotions. That's how companies sell their products. In regard to "emotional well-being," I think in many cases companies take it into account. Offering after-sales services or guarantees are examples of this. Nowadays there are many other instruments.

How important is the development of a fully inclusive school culture? Are leadership teams willing but in need of structured professional support?
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Dr.Lorraine Marsland
In order for inclusive education to be realized and sustained in practice, it is crucial that time is spent on establishing shared beliefs and understandings. That is, coming to a collective realization about education and its purpose, about how students learn, about what constitutes quality and effective teaching, about responsibility, and about the vision for life and communities beyond school.
In practice, culture change can be viewed as impacting the “hearts and minds” of a school and its population.
In order for authentic culture change to occur, the majority (80%+) of staff need to reach a point where they believe and understand that quality, evidence-based education should be afforded to all students, and that diversity should be embraced and celebrated. If changes in practice are demanded prior to significant cultural impact, there runs a risk of minimal compliance, tokenistic responses, and the less than desirable outcome of integration. Inclusive school reform is not likely to be scalable and sustained long term.

I want to know the risk and protective factors of the mental well-being of university students. Is there any screening tools or psychological test for assessing the factors?
Relevant answer
Answer
There are such a broad range of risk and protective factors for mental wellbeing that finding a specific scale to measure these may be difficult. To name a few general domains, there are numerous neurobiological, psychological and social factors that would be of relevance here. If you are investigating these associations, it is likely that you have a research question or hypothesis in mind. I would begin working on this by going into previous research (including systematic reviews) investigating risk and protective factors of mental wellbeing in general, in addition to articles investigating common psychological issues reported by university students.
At the end of the day, you will have to make executive decisions when developing your survey as to what domains you would like to investigate and the number of questions necessary to do this. Your main limitation will be the time constraints regarding survey completion and wanting to ensure a high completion rate and accurate responding.

Dear colleagues,
as a sexualities researcher, I am faced with a difficult question regarding the complex dynamics between seeking ways in which evidence-based science on human sexual orientation (e.g. on the normalcy of homo-/bi-sexuality, understanding of unchangeability and immutability in the domain of attractions; proven harmful effects of sexual orientation change efforts - SOCE; minority stress and stigma influence on LGBT+ people's well-being, etc.) collide with the prevalent doctrines perpetuated by various Churches (e.g. by Catholic Church, etc.). For example, in most of the Catholic discussions or written sources, I continue to see distinguishing between one's sexual orientation (as a trait) and the seeming (and seen as sinful) choice of acting upon this "drive" or "impulse".
By making this distinction, one is faced with a view in which human (homo/bi)sexuality is represented as (a) suppressible and (b) possibly changeable.
Here, I would like to ask you, fellow scholars, if you have some resources, references, results of your research as well as consequent suggestions in which it may be possible to find fruitful grounds for progressive discussion with a capacity for reconciling this schism between scientific evidence on (a) understanding of sexuality as human natural physiological need similar to hunger or thirst (Maslow 1987 Motivation and Personality), and (b) unchangeability of sexual orientation and harmful practices of SOCE which is backed by several position statements by respected scientific communities like World Psychiatric Association (Bhugra, D., Eckstrand, K., Levounis, P., Kar, A., & Javate, K. R. (2016). WPA Position Statement on Gender Identity and Same-Sex Orientation, Attraction and Behaviours. World psychiatry: official journal of the World Psychiatric Association (WPA), 15(3), 299–300. https://doi.org/10.1002/wps.20340)
In this view, the religious (normative, moral) requirement of suppression or alteration of someone's sexual orientation and proscribed partner selection effectively restricting homo/bisexual individuals' potentials for forming and sustaining long-term relationships (and in this view acting upon their physiological desires) poses a substantial barrier to their well-being as well. The significance of these questions surpass individuals or interindividual psychology, they foray into law, religious freedoms, bioethics and so much more.
I am sure that many have asked themselves similar questions, so perhaps this discussion will also benefit other scholars.
Sincerely,

Thank you for your response Lukasz Dominik Kaczmarek . In this respect, I wonder whether the church does, in fact, distinguish between the voluntary and respected priests' devotion to celibacy and the enforced moral requirement of non-heterosexuals to suppress their sexuality which would otherwise be viewed as sinful? I see there is both normative/moral difference as well as distinction in motivation and role of individual's choice.

Answer
A negative indirect effect here means that perceived stress (X) is negatively related to well-being (Y) through its effect on positive religious coping (M). The indirect effect is negative because X->M is negative but M-> Y is positive. When these two are multiplied to give you an indirect effect, they result in a negative product. Hope this helps.

Invasive species are an increasingly significant threat to our environment, economy, health and well‐being. Most are nonindigenous (evolved elsewhere and accidentally introduced) and have been removed from the constraints regulating growth in their native habitat. The best method of control is to prevent establishment in the first place or to quickly identify establishment and adopt an eradication programme. However, if an invasive species becomes established many of the options for removal can cause environmental damage, for example chemical control or mechanical excavation. Biological control (introduction of a natural predator/pathogen) can work well as long as the control organism targets only the invasive species. Otherwise there is a risk that the control organism might also become an invasive species. Alternatives, such as manipulating existing natural enemies and/or the environment to enhance biological control, are also being developed. Sustainable solutions are required if we are to deal with the continually growing problem of invasive species.

Hello everyone:
What does it mean when a variable is significant in one step but then in the next step it's no longer significant? For example, in this article (https://cyberleninka.org/article/n/1102972.pdf) neuroticism is a significant predictor of well-being in the first step when the Big Five personality traits are introduced, but in the second step neuroticism is no longer a significant predictor when new variables are added. The authors in the discussion seem to interpret step 1 and step 2 of the model independently (concluding that neuroticism is a predictor of well-being even though it is not in the last step of the model). Would this be an acceptable way to interpret a hierarchical regression?
Thank you!
Relevant answer
Answer
If I understood your question correctly, interpretation would be that in the model where neuroticism stops being significant, implies that whatever variables were introduced, they accounted for most of the variance (or at least the variance that neuroticism had previously accounted for) in the DV. This would suggest that these 2 new variables are more important in their relationship to the DV then neuroticism alone. More analysis would need to be done to know for sure (SEM for example would give direct and indirect effects of variables).

Its my first time, please I need help. Thank you
Relevant answer
Answer
Additionally to the comment of Michael R. Frone, which is the reason I cannot give any specific answers, I would like to add some rather fundamental aspects in the interpretation of SEM results to think about. Is your analysis explorative or confirmative? The interpretation often is a question of the assumptions you make about your model/situation. One option is to interpret the results as substantial, assuming there are processes connected with the parameters. Are you sure, that this interpretation lines up with your theoretical assumptions? Another option is to interpret it as a kind of multiple regression. In this case it is highly problematic to argue with causality. Are you using a model with correlated latent variables? There might be a situation in which paths and correlations yield contradicting results. The theoretical (almost philosophical) way you interpret your model might be a basis on which to choose. My opinion is, that you should not use any standard methods (rotations) without a solid justification and theoretical understanding for it. There are a lot of reasons, why a careful argumentation is important in interpreting SEM-results.

I am conducting a cross-sectional quantitative study, originally i was using 4 predictor variables and criterion and used multi-regressional analysis. This was significant and lead to three of my four predictors being supported.
pearsons correlation indicated these predictors were correlated the variance inflation factor (VIF) and tolerance indicated this was no an issue (low-moderate VIF and high tolerance) as the correlated variables were significant predictors.
predictors: professional self-doubt, developmental depletion and developmental growth (whether participants think they are growing in their careers). i also had years of experience that was non-significant. he criterion is well-being
I ran a serial mediation analysis using model 6. using a theoretical basis i added predictor variable 'self-doubt' as a predictor. developmental growth, developmental depletion and years of experience as mediators . well-being as the criterion.
the pathways between each variable and the criterion are the same as those found in multi-regression. indirect pathways were also found for developmental growth and depletion. depletion also influenced the link between growth and well-being. Is it reasonable to conclude these variables have direct and indirect effects on well-being?
The aim of my study is to see how these factors impact well-being.
Relevant answer
Answer
it seems that you have ran appropriate analyses to test your research purpose (except for testing the relative significance of the mediators, you can test which mediating effect is stronger). However, it would be quite challenging to publish your findings into an academic journal due to the cross-sectional design (with the self-assessed measures only--it seems that all the measures were assessed by self-report).
I suggest you to test some potential moderating effects. For example, you can test whether years of experience can moderate some of the indirect effect or the relationship between professional self-doubt and developmental depletion/developmental growth. Also, you can test other variables in your data or demographic variables as a potential moderator.

I ran a mediation analysis as these predictors were also highly correlated with one another (though VIF was low-moderate and tolerance was high). Three of four variables predicted the criterion. Using a theoretical rationale two of the variables were identified as mediators.
From this, when I added all significant predictors the B in hayes process model 6 between the predictor variable and mediators with the criterion was lower than suggested by the multiple regression.

“In addition, children may be less likely to become infected and to spread infection. Policies to mitigate the spread of Covid-19 within schools must be balanced with the known harms to children, adolescents, families, and the community by keeping children at home," the AAP said.

Relevant answer
Answer
This pandemic has affected students in so many ways. Their mental and social state has indeed changed drastically and more importantly academically. In developing countries, online learning is not prevalent and most students are finding it difficult to adjust to it. It is very challenging for students who are used to face-to-face learning to get used to online learning in terms of assimmilation and understanding notes without proper guidance from lecturers and tutors who help during physical learning.
Some students are demotivated to even practice online consultation with their lecturers and mentors because in situations like this, factors such as inadequate data, lack of electricity, and the fear of talking directly/alone with their mentor/tutor hinder effective learning. Unlike physical learning where tutors can group students and facilitate discussions. This type of setting encourages and gives confidence to students who are not able to converse directly with their tutor. They can also find solace in their peers and be comfortable to discuss amongst friends.
Group discussions could be possible with online learning but in this global age, students could easily be distracted with social media activities and neglect schoolwork. Technology has been so helpful during this pandemic, but most students find it challenging to channel the impact of technology towards a good course like accessing different materials to aid learning or form a group discussion where students can share ideas to help each other.

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). Interesting work.

DV= EWB (comprises from 8 variables in dichotomous nature, based on yes and no)
IV= Social exclusion (comprises from 6 indicators and each indicator has 5-8 statements based on categorical and continuous data)
please write me the step wise procedure of the statistical tool and reference papers, books and videos link. I'll be highly thankful.

Answer
It really depends on the the scales you are using:
DV= EWB (comprises from 8 variables in dichotomous nature, based on yes and no): To address DV, you could either use the sum of all responses, in which case you need to examine the KR20 score first to establish internal consistency reliability. This slide includes how to calculate KR20 in Stata: https://cdn1.sph.harvard.edu/wp-content/uploads/sites/59/2016/10/harvard-lecture-series-session-2_Reliability.pdf
Alternatively, you can use latent class analysis to identify the latent groups. In Stata, you can find instructions here: https://www.stata.com/features/overview/latent-class-analysis/
IV= Social exclusion (comprises from 6 indicators and each indicator has 5-8 statements based on categorical and continuous data): In this case, you need to create a latent variable using GSEM (assuming you use STATA) and specify the distribution of each indicator. https://www.stata.com/meeting/italy13/abstracts/materials/it13_huber.pdf
Given the feature of your IV, it might be inevitable for you to use GSEM in STATA. Alternatively, R and Mplus can also do the above. Mplus software is probably the most powerful one. But I know more about Stata, yet GSEM often encounters situations of non-convergence.

Hello fellow researchers,
I am writing an introduction on a new article on social marginalization in school, where I wish to refer to leading research on well-being (or school belonging) and academic achievement in school. Do you know any articles in which the relationship between student well-being and academic achievement is analyzed thoroughly? Is there any evidence that more well-being leads to higher academic achievements? How strong is this relationship and has it been quantified in former research?
Thanks for your suggestions in advance.

Good question, and often overlooked.
Science and philosophy in Western countries began in the Greek province of Ionia, in present Turkey - and an degree of riches and wellbeing and access to free time was an important factor it seems in this province Which had become rich by trade.
in the same way, a student that is homeless, sick and hungry and on the brink of survival cannot be expected to be very engaged in his or her studies.
A very interesting read on the subject is
Mullainathan, S., & Shafir, E. (2013). Scarcity: Why having too little means so much. Macmillan.
The authors say that ”scarcity captures the mind”. See parts of the book in Google books and see also a review below. Interesting read!

The importance of public health governance has again emerged in the entire world and, especially developing countries because it is an integrated approach for the well-being of human health through both government and society approaches. How can make it more sustainable?
Relevant answer
Answer
In my view, with the appearance of COVID-19, the importance of PREVENTION in countries focused on treatment, once again, become clear. Unfortunately, the attitude of most developing countries is treatment-oriented, and most of the budget, time, and education is spent on strengthening and promoting TREATMENT, and health care providers are isolated and not given enough attention. Perhaps only if public attention (governance and society) turns to health and prevention, will there be a possibility of overcoming this crisis.

Climate change is a reality. Responsible for this change is the excessive concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere, mainly due to the requirement of electricity at the residential, commercial, industrial and services level, from fossil sources emitting large amounts of carbon dioxide. Trying to reduce such consumption would affect people's well-being?

Many nations and companies are energy inefficient. Thus, it is possible to make communities, companies and households energy efficient without impacting productivity.
I was involved in energy efficiency drives in my "neck of the woods." Although, I do not have any data to support my assertion, but I can say without fear of contradiction that inefficient use of energy is big challenge.
EPRI, IEA and the World Energy Council may provide some useful insights.
I would even argue actually that improvement in energy efficiency could have a positive impact on GDP growth.

Greetings,
Hope this message finds you well. I am working on designing a survey questionnaires that can effectively discover a local military community's needs, so that a nonprofit organization can best meet those needs in the ares of:
1. Work/life balance problems
2. Household management problems
3. Financial problems
4. Legal problems
5. Health care system problems
6. Relationship problems
7. Child well-being problems
8. Problems with own well-being
9. Problems with spouse’s/partner’s well-being
Would you happen to know an IRB approved survey instrument that I could use, or any suggestions on the best survey questions to ask in those areas?
How many questions are appropriate in each category to discover the true problems and the magnitude of the problems?
This will help the NPO to redefine their strategic planning and effectively utilize their limited resources to serve those needs.
Thank you so much for your help!

Look at the different questionnaires we have used and you may find them applicable. Also attitudes towards the community could easily be measured:
