  • Project Reach Out: A training program to increase behavioral health
           utilization among professional firefighters.
    • Authors: Gulliver; Suzy B.; Cammarata, Claire M.; Leto, Frank; Ostiguy, William J.; Flynn, Elisa J.; Carpenter, Grace Stephanie J.; Kamholz, Barbara W.; Zimering, Rose T.; Kimbrel, Nathan A.
      Abstract: The current study examined the efficacy of a newly developed training program to help firefighters identify fellow firefighters in distress and connect them with behavioral health care. This training program—known as Reach Out—incorporates elements of Motivational Interviewing and Community Reinforcement along with basic education about common behavioral health problems. Two active versions of the Reach Out training program (group format vs. video format) were compared with a behavioral health video control condition. One hundred seventy-two firefighters were randomized to 1 of the 3 training conditions. Dependent measures included successful attempts to connect identified firefighters with treatment, intervention effectiveness, and treatment credibility. Firefighters in the video-based Reach Out training condition reported a significant increase in successful interventions and intervention effectiveness from pretest to the 3-month follow-up compared with the control group. The video-based Reach Out training condition was also rated as significantly more credible than the control condition. Although preliminary, these findings suggest that the video-based Reach Out training program may help to increase behavioral health utilization among firefighters. Additional research on this promising new training program is warranted. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Work strain, job satisfaction, and intention to quit: The moderating
           effect of long-term orientation.
    • Authors: Sims; Randi L.; Ruppel, Cynthia P.; Zeidler, Peter
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate the moderate role of national culture on the relationship between work strain and employee attitudes. National culture describes the context in which work strain is experienced and employee attitudes and intentions are expressed. National culture also influences the perceptions of its members by creating cultural schemata for how experiences are viewed and interpreted. This study considers the attitudes of 347 entry-level employees working in manufacturing and call center companies in China, India, and the Philippines. Our findings indicate the national cultural dimension of long-term orientation moderates the relationships between work strain, job satisfaction, and intention to quit. Isolating national cultural differences related to long-term orientation may aid in the understanding of more subtle cultural variances which may be overlooked when samples from seemingly similar national cultures and geographic regions are grouped for analysis.

  • Stress and posttraumatic growth among survivors of breast cancer: A test
           of curvilinear effects.
    • Abstract: The purpose of the current study was to test the curvilinear associations between experiences of stress and posttraumatic growth among female breast cancer survivors. Participants (n = 193; 86% Caucasian; 80% diagnosed with Stage I or II cancer) completed self-report questionnaires assessing sociodemographic and medical information, perceived general stress, cancer-specific stress, and posttraumatic growth. Two hierarchical regression models tested the associations between general and cancer-specific stress and posttraumatic growth. After controlling for the effects of age, education, and time since diagnosis, there was a significant curvilinear effect of general stress on posttraumatic growth. Moderate levels of general stress were associated with the greatest posttraumatic growth. Cancer-specific stress was not associated with posttraumatic growth. These findings suggest that stress can be adaptive in the aftermath of cancer treatments, and different manifestations of stress may require individualized intervention. Future research studies are needed to better understand and contextualize these findings among other cancer populations. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Outcome expectancy as a process indicator in comprehensive worksite stress
           management interventions.
    • Authors: Fridrich; Annemarie; Jenny, Gregor J.; Bauer, Georg F.
      Abstract: This study investigates the relationship between outcome expectancy for an individual stress management course and the total perceived impact of a comprehensive stress management intervention (SMI). It is based on data from 3 different measurement points from a longitudinal SMI in Switzerland. Individual and organizational outcome expectancies for stress management courses were captured with 2 newly developed items (SMI outcome expectancy) immediately after course completion. Perceived individual and organizational impacts of the overall intervention captured with 2 items of a retrospective impact assessment scale (perceived SMI impact) at the 2-year follow-up survey were used as the outcome measurement. Baseline individual and organizational change commitments (as rated by participants) were included in the analyses as possible moderators. Regression analyses show that individual and organizational outcome expectancies with respect to stress management courses can to some extent predict the perceived impact of the intervention as a whole. At the individual level, an intervention will be perceived as most successful when participants already have a high individual change commitment and develop high outcome expectancies during stress management courses.

  • Are support and control beneficial stress buffers in the presence of
           work–family barriers' Findings from Italy.
    • Authors: Lo Presti; Alessandro; Mauno, Saija
      Abstract: Work–family barriers can be conceived as a stressor, as it refers to organizational time demands interfering with an employee’s family-related needs and anticipated negative career outcomes as a result of prioritizing family over work. The negative effects of stressors can be buffered by various resources. In this study, we examined whether 4 specific job resources (i.e., work–family organizational support, supervisors’ and coworkers’ overall support, and job control) buffer against work–family barriers in relation to work-to-family enrichment. We sampled 447 Italian workers employed in the food-processing industry. The results of hierarchical regression analyses showed that all the studied resources, except work–family organizational support, buffered against the negative effects of work–family barriers on work-to-family enrichment. In addition, 3 of 4 resources (i.e., work–family organizational support, job control, and supervisors’ overall social support) had a direct positive effect on work-to-family enrichment. The results call attention to job resources in boosting a positive work–family interface, and cross-validate the positive effects of resources in an Italian context.
