The nature of nurture: Disentangling passive genotype–environment correlation from family relationship influences on children's externalizing problems.
The relationship between interparental conflict, hostile parenting, and children's externalizing problems is well established. Few studies, however, have examined the pattern of association underlying this constellation of family and child level variables while controlling for the possible confounding presence of passive genotype–environment correlation. Using the attributes of 2 genetically sensitive research designs, the present study examined associations among interparental conflict, parent-to-child hostility, and children's externalizing problems among genetically related and genetically unrelated mother–child and...

Impact of child sex abuse on adult psychopathology: A genetically and epigenetically informed investigation.
Genetic, environmental, and epigenetic influences and their transactions were examined in a sample of 155 women from the Iowa adoptee sample who had been removed from their biological parents shortly after birth and assessed when participants were an average of 41.10 years old. We observed an interactive effect of child sex abuse (CSA) and biological parent psychopathology (i.e., genetic load) on substance abuse as well as a main effect of CSA on substance abuse in adulthood. We also observed main effects of CSA and genetic load on depression and on antisocial characteristics. As predicted, CSA, but not genetic load or lat...

Genetics and epigenetics in family context: Introduction to the special section.
We introduce the special section on “Genetics and Epigenetics in Family Context.” It is noted that family researchers are incorporating genetic factors in their research with increasing frequency. The current special section includes contributions from behavioral genetic, molecular genetic, and epigenetic perspectives, reflecting the diversity of methodologies that are currently being applied to the study of genetic contributions to family processes and outcomes. The special section is both an acknowledgment of the increasing prominence of genetic factors in family models as well as an effort to highlight different app...

Optimistic or quixotic? More data on marriage and relationship education programs for lower income couples.
Replies to comments made by Hawkins et al. (see record 2013-04752-002) on the author's original article (see record 2012-08242-001). I am gratified and encouraged that such an esteemed group of relationship scientists as Hawkins et al. I want to continue the discussion of government-supported marriage and relationship education (MRE) programs for lower income couples by responding to my article (Johnson, May–June 2012). In their comment, they argued that there are data that support the efficacy of MRE programs for disadvantaged couples and that the benefits of these programs outweigh the costs. My response to both of the...

A more optimistic perspective on government-supported marriage and relationship education programs for lower income couples.
Comments on the original article by Matthew D. Johnson (see record 2012-08242-001). It is important to challenge some of Johnson’s points about the effectiveness and reach of interventions to lower income couples and couples of color and his suggested prioritization of basic over applied research. With emerging findings and practical knowledge gained in lower income communities from all across the United States over the past decade, we see evidence to support optimism for the potential utility of marriage and relationship education (MRE) programs to help disadvantaged and minority couples. Accordingly, continued support ...

Violent video games and the Supreme Court: Lessons for the scientific community in the wake of Brown v. Entertainment Merchants Association.
In June 2011 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that video games enjoy full free speech protections and that the regulation of violent game sales to minors is unconstitutional. The Supreme Court also referred to psychological research on violent video games as “unpersuasive” and noted that such research contains many methodological flaws. Recent reviews in many scholarly journals have come to similar conclusions, although much debate continues. Given past statements by the American Psychological Association linking video game and media violence with aggression, the Supreme Court ruling, particularly its critique of the scien...

A psychological predictor of elders' driving performance: social‐comparisons on the road
Abstract Older individuals often believe they can drive better than their contemporaries. This belief is an example of downward social‐comparisons; they can be self‐enhancing tools that lead to beneficial outcomes. As predicted, we found that drivers who engaged in downward social‐comparisons were significantly less likely to have adverse driving events over time, after controlling for relevant factors (p = .02). This effect was particularly strong among women, who tend to experience more negative driving stereotypes (p = .01). The study was based on 897 interviews of 117 elder drivers, aged 70–89 years, ov...

Feeling left out? The mediating role of perceived rejection on workgroup mistreatment and affective, behavioral, and organizational outcomes and the moderating role of organizational norms
Abstract This two‐study paper examines the detrimental impact of workgroup mistreatment and the mediating role of perceived rejection. In Study 1, perceived rejection emerged as a mediator between workgroup mistreatment and depression, organization‐based self‐esteem, organizational deviance, and organizational citizenship behaviors. In Study 2, the role of organizational norms was examined. Employees who experienced supportive organizational norms reported lower levels of perceived rejection, depression and turnover intentions, and higher levels of organization‐based self‐esteem and job satisfaction. Employees in...

Investigation of nonverbal discrimination against women in simulated initial job interviews
This study investigated nonverbal sex discrimination in simulated initial job interviews with women applicants. It was hypothesized that experienced interviewers would exhibit more negative behaviors while interviewing a woman for a “masculine” job (an incongruent interview), but more positive behaviors while interviewing a woman for a “feminine” job (a congruent interview). It was further hypothesized that the behavior of inexperienced interviewers would remain the same across interviews. Mock initial job interviews were videotaped and nonverbal behaviors were coded. As hypothesized, experienced interviewers exhib...

The effect of foot massage on long-term care staff working with older people with dementia: a pilot, parallel group, randomized controlled trial
Conclusions: This pilot trial provides data to support the feasibility of the study in terms of recruitment and consent, the intervention and completion rates. Although the outcome data should be treated with caution, the pilot demonstrated the foot massage intervention showed trends in improved mood, reduced anxiety and lower blood pressure in long-term care staff working with older people with dementia. A larger study is needed to build on these promising, but preliminary, findings.Trial registration: ACTRN: ACTRN12612000659808.

Conclusion: The pilot study found the intervention was feasible and acceptable to mothers and counsellors, and provides preliminary evidence that participation in the intervention encouraged disclosure and health promotion. The pilot methodology and small sample size has limitations and further research is required to test the potential of this intervention. A larger demonstration project with 300 families is currently underway.

Can mindfulness‐based interventions help adolescents with cancer?
Abstract During the past 30 years, there has been an increase in the incidence of cancer in adolescents. While recent studies have illustrated remarkable resilience in youth living with cancer, they can also face daunting acute and chronic adjustment struggles, cognitive and school problems, family and peer relational difficulties, depression, post‐traumatic stress symptoms, and other anxiety disorders. Mindfulness‐based interventions (MBIs), increasingly shown to be effective in a variety of medical and mental health settings, may be particularly beneficial for adolescents with cancer. This paper reviews evidence fr...

School violence, social support and psychological health among Taiwanese junior high school students.
CONCLUSION: The findings imply that peer social support plays an important mediating role between exposure to school violence and student psychological health. The findings provide empirical evidence and information to help school practitioners and policymakers justify developing or incorporating social support into prevention and intervention strategies. The findings suggest that interventions or policies promoting social support incorporated at a national level could be effective across genders and ethnicities in Taiwan.

However, a simple change of gender in any of the names is all it takes to apply the principles to other pairs.

The star of the workshop was a woman in her 30s he calls "Nasreen", who was working on a novel based on her family's experiences in pre-revolutionary Iran. "There are seldom more than a couple of students in any workshop who seem natural writers, and they aren't hard to spot," Lasdun writes in the early pages of his memoir, Give Me Everything You Have: On Being Stalked.
