The effect of the COVID-19 related stressors on the mental health of both infected patients and the general public has been well established. However, knowledge is limited on how psychosocial support buffers the association. This study aimed to examine this buffering role in the context of China. We utilized cross-sectional data collected online in mid-March 2020, involving 585 respondents. Mental health status was determined through depression symptoms and loneliness.

Previous research on adults’ moral licensing and cleansing suggested the moderating role of psychological distance: psychologically close actions generate behavior opposite in valence that would restore moral balance, while distant actions motivate similar behaviors, as they are abstractly conceptualized as identity features. We adapted an experimental paradigm previously used in this area, that of recalling past moral and immoral behaviors, and used it in two studies on children (N = 285) aged ...

Trigger warnings are defined as alerts presented before media to warn that the content may represent a trauma reminder. Their usefulness in higher education has been at the center of debate. While originally created to help individuals with posttraumatic stress symptoms decide whether or not to engage with material that could elicit, or “trigger” symptoms, trigger warnings have been implicated in perpetuating the avoidant behaviors that maintain the posttraumatic stress syndrome. Much of the lit...

The purpose of this study was to investigate the synergy of self-brand connection and materialism on brand love and the negative impact of this relationship. Brand-love consumers display compulsive buying behavior because of their obsessive bond with their favorite brand. Partial least squares structural equation modeling was used to check the hypotheses and path analyses. The findings suggested that self-brand connection and materialism trigger brand love with emotional connections. Brand love,...

The COVID -19 pandemic represents a global health crisis, so adherence to government guidelines and public health advice is critical in reducing transmission rates. Despite this, it has been reported that a minority of people do not comply with the governmental guidelines. When considering the reasons why some people do not comply with preventive measures, previous studies have shown that beliefs in COVID-19 conspiracy theories negatively predict responsible pandemic-related behaviour. This, in ...
Virtual reality is an effective therapeutic tool in many psychiatric disorders. However, some patients are not very sensitive to these new treatments due to a difficulty in considering these virtual environments as plausible. The aim of this study is to evaluate the influence of conceptual priming on the perception of virtual environments in healthy participants. We primed participants with a pro-social, non-social or anti-social priming. The participants then had to present themselves for 2 min...

In the spirit of the growing developments in positive psychology, there is an increasing interest in how kind people are to each other. Yet, this area lacks any strong psychometric instrument. An initial exploratory study demonstrated that a 40-item questionnaire, completed by 165 people, revealed distinct aspects of kindness when subjected to multivariate analysis. A subsequent study is reported, using the structure of the exploratory results to further clarify the conceptual framework (Study 1...
