Designed for students and researchers without an extensive quantitative background, this book offers an informative guide to the application, interpretation and pitfalls of structural equation modelling (SEM) in the social sciences. The book covers introductory techniques including path analysis and confirmatory factor analysis, and provides an overview of more advanced methods such as the evaluation of non-linear effects, the analysis of means in convariance structure models, and latent growth models for longitudinal data. Providing examples from various disciplines to illustrate all aspects of SEM, the book offers clear instructions on the preparation and screening of data, common mistakes to avoid and widely used software programs (Amos, EQS and LISREL). The book aims to provide the skills necessary to begin to use SEM in research and to interpret and critique the use of method by others.

Abstract null null This study aims to examine students' experience of augmented reality learning applications (AR.LRP). Uses and gratifications theory was proposed as a theoretical foundation of the current study's conceptual model. Four dimensions of UGT benefits were proposed as key antecedences of the students' experience with AR.LRP: personal interactive benefits, social interactive benefits, affective benefits, and cognitive benefits. The model was also extended by considering the role of t...

Abstract null null Contract cheating is a critical emerging threat to academic integrity in higher education. Although some situational predictors of student engagement in contract cheating are known, little is known about the psychological predictors of contract cheating. Intentions are a key predictor of future behavior. Thus, in this study, students' (N = 459) intentions to engage in contract cheating were examined in an extended Theory of Reasoned Action (TPR) model via a cross-sectional sur...

Abstract null null Resilience is the process of negotiating, managing, and adapting to significant sources of stress or trauma ( Windle et al., 2011 ). Previous research has demonstrated that higher levels of resilience can positively impact life outcomes, such as adaptive coping and life satisfaction. However, previous research has often been conducted within clinical populations, and less is known about how resilience develops in largely non-clinical college populations. Given some conceptual ...

Abstract null null The aim of the present study was to determine whether Big Five personality traits moderated intervention effects through differential susceptibility for environmental factors. We conducted a randomized controlled trial in which adolescents received either Rock & Water (a universal school based intervention aiming to enhance youth's psychosocial development) or care as usual. Adolescents (N = 1299, Mage = 12.38) reported on the outcomes (i.e., psychological wellbeing, resilienc...

Abstract null null Self-focused attention literature identifies inconsistencies which suggest that self-reflection does not have a direct relationship with resilient outcomes. This study aimed to clarify the associated mechanisms by (1) exploring the indirect relationships between general and adaptive self-reflection and mental health outcomes via insight, and (2) testing the role of rumination as a moderator of this mediating relationship. Two-hundred and seventy-seven Australian Protestant min...

Social media browsing is commonly seen as a trigger of unhealthy social comparison (i.e., upward contrast), which negatively affects well-being. One underlying assumption is the predominance of positive self-presentation on social media, which may have shifted during the COVID-19 pandemic when negative disclosures have become more prevalent. In this study, we conceptualize social comparison as a multi-dimensional construct based on different comparing targets and processes, and explore how indiv...

Abstract null null Desire thinking is an emerging construct which has been shown to play a role in addictive behaviors. The present study sought to validate a translated Persian version of the Desire Thinking Questionnaire (DTQ) in three groups of individuals with Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD; n = 300), nicotine dependence (n = 300), and problematic social media use (n = 300). All three groups completed the translated Persian version of the DTQ, the Barratt Impulsiveness Scale-15 (BIS-15), the Whit...

Abstract null null The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a severe hit on the health of workers in the tourism industry. It is crucial to understand how to help the workforce in this service industry become resilient and adaptive through this crisis. The primary objective of this research is to examine how family support nurtures tourism workers' posttraumatic growth (PTG), an adaptation form in the resilience process. The valid data were collected from 384 tourism workers who were on unpaid leave or l...

Abstract null null In the context of the Covid-19, the present study designed a longitudinal study to examine the relationship among interpersonal alienation, meaning in life and smartphone addiction. Meanwhile, with the development of the epidemic whether there would be changes in the three variables was also examined. A sample of 579 university students (baseline mean age = 20.59, SD = 2.20) finished the anonymous questionnaires about interpersonal alienation, meaning in life and smartphone ad...
