  • The Effects of a Positive Death Education Group on Psycho-Spiritual
           Outcomes for Chinese with Chronic Illness: A Quasi-Experimental Study
    • Authors: Leung, P. P.-Y; Wan, A. H.-Y, Lui, J. Y.-M, Ho, A. H. Y, Liu, K.-H, So, A, Chan, O. K.-M, Kwan, J. C.-Y, Wong, T. K.-H, Chan, C. L.-W.

      Abstract: Traditionally, death is a taboo subject in Chinese culture. However, very few studies examine the effects of death education program on the psycho-spiritual outcomes among Chinese patients. This article reports on a quasi-experimental study on Chinese patients with chronic diseases who participated in a psycho-education group on positive death preparation. Findings revealed that participants in the intervention group (n = 81) reported significantly greater reduction in fear of death, death avoidance, greater increase in death acceptance, death preparation, tranquility and spiritual well-being at immediate post-intervention than the control group (n = 79). It is also found that levels of death-related fear and avoidance in the intervention group were significantly lower at 1–month follow-up when compared with baseline. This study challenges the assumption that Chinese people are not receptive to intervention that addresses issues of death and dying. Implications of conducting death education program among a culturally diverse population are discussed.

  • Factors Related to Suicidal Ideation among College Students in GUAM

      Abstract: The risk and protective factors related to suicidal ideation among college students in Guam remains unknown. The purpose of this study is to identify the rates of suicidal ideation and suicide attempt, and explore the risk and protective factors of suicidal ideation among college students in Guam. A total of 207 college students at the University of Guam were surveyed in 2009. The rate of suicidal ideation and suicide attempts was 10.2% and 8.2%. respectively. In multivariate logistic regression analyses, previous suicide attempts, shorter period of living in Guam, high scores on cultural difference and negative affect, and low scores on family meaning were identified as independent predictors of suicidal ideation. These risk and protective factors for suicidal ideation among college students, including stress and social support, should be considered in planning campus suicide prevention programs.

  • An Exploratory Study of Social Capital and Cancer Survivorship: Meaning
           and Interpersonal Relationships among Chinese with Cancer
    • Authors: Joubert, L. B; Wan, A. H. Y, Bhatt, S, Chan, C. L. W.
      Pages: 33 - 44
      Abstract: Previous research suggests that sociodemographic characteristics as well as social environment assessment of individual social capital can support cancer survivorship. It is in this context that the current study was undertaken. The aim of this study was to explore the social capital of Hong Kong Chinese who live with a diagnosis of cancer. An exploratory analysis was undertaken of 20 patients diagnosed with cancer in the Queen Mary Hospital in Hong Kong and undergoing treatment. After informed consent, participants underwent a semi-structured psychosocial assessment, conducted by a social worker. Themes relevant to their cancer experience were explored, within their individual psychosocial context. Qualitative data was recorded within an Eco-Map framework and analyzed employing a Thematic Network Analysis model. The major themes identified within this sample included financial concerns, interpersonal relationships, and existential meaning. Cultural beliefs were found to be a major protective factor, as were supportive and caring interpersonal relationships. This exploratory analysis has demonstrated the importance of including social capital as an integral part of the approach to the patient experience and the importance of the concept of cancer survivorship in a culturally relevant context.

  • Diagnostic Ambiguity and Psychosocial Distress among Chinese Women with
           Idiopathic and Non-Idiopathic Infertility
    • Authors: Chan, C. H. Y; Chan, T. H. Y, Chan, C. L. W, Ng, E. H. Y, Ho, P. C.
      Pages: 45 - 58
      Abstract: The aim of this study is to investigate how women with different diagnoses on their cause of infertility—non-idiopathic (female, male, mixed), or idiopathic (unknown causes)—display different levels of psychosocial well-being prior to their IVF treatment. Women who attended an assisted reproduction clinic were recruited to fill out a set of questionnaire about 3 months before the start of their first IVF treatment cycle (valid N = 330). Measures included anxiety, somatic, emotional, and spiritual distress, as well as marital satisfaction. Somatic distress was found to be highest among women without a known cause of infertility. Women with mixed-factor diagnosis reported significantly lower emotional distress. Spiritual distress was found to be the highest in female-factor infertility group. Results remained significant after controlling for marital satisfaction. The current findings suggest that facing infertility whose cause is unexplained, women may express their distress through somatic complaints. Where a physiological cause can be identified, emotional and spiritual distress are paradoxically lower when both wife and husband are perceived to share the responsibility for the condition. Results can inform healthcare professionals about the psychological needs of women with different diagnoses of infertility prior to their IVF treatment.

  • The Therapeutic Use of Individual Story Book in Group Context
    • Authors: Hung, E. N; Law, B. M. F.
      Pages: 59 - 73
      Abstract: In this study, a qualitative analysis of the therapeutic use of writing individual storybooks by patients with brain disease is reported. The researchers aimed to examine how a group of brain disease patients integrated their personal stories by writing in a group work setting. A narrative approach was used for the data analysis. Results indicate that writing individual storybooks was therapeutic and could strengthen participants' awareness of personal competence. Writing in a group setting helped the patients realize the meaning of life and therefore was an effective strategy for patient rehabilitation. Implications for individual storybook use among groups of brain disease patients are discussed.

      Abstract: As we move into this new year, we want to thank the many of you who keep me posted about the "good stuff" that deserve to be shared with others. A number of you have been reviewers, and we always need more. There is no shortage of books and the top publishers internationally recognize the value as one of the best ways for them to reach their "customers." We hope to expand our already rich resources on loss as we continue to expand our awareness of, and response to the many challenges and opportunities that come to this ever-shrinking planet. We hope to expand our attention to the needs of children and teens, those who walk alone, and for older adults. If you come across a book or resource we should look at, please send them to me at 1484 N. Academy Street, Galesburg, IL 61401. (309) 351–7447. This issue is dedicated to the many who share in the work we all do, and the many who have died, with special remembrance of Darcie Sims and Marv Johnson.
