Abstract

Background and aims

Social-networks-use disorder is discussed as a potential further type of disorders due to addictive behaviors. Theoretical models assume cue-induced craving and disadvantageous decision making to be relevant mechanisms. This study investigates if the presentation of social-networks-related cues interferes with decision making under ambiguity.

Methods

Craving was induced with a cue-reactivity paradigm and assessed with a visual analogue scale. Participants (N = 146) played a modified Iowa Gambling Task with social-networks-related cues and neutral cues presented on the advantageous and disadvantageous decks respectively, or vice versa. Symptoms of social-networks-use disorder were measured with a modified version of the short Internet Addiction Test.

Results

Overall, participants chose options with neutral cues more often than those with social-networks-related cues, even if it was disadvantageous. There was a significant interaction between decision-making performance and Iowa Gambling Task condition in predicting symptom severity. The results indicate that choosing decks with social-networks-related cues even if it was disadvantageous is associated with higher tendencies towards a social-networks-use disorder. The interaction with cue-induced craving did not explain further variance.

Discussion and Conclusions

The results highlight the relevance of cue reactivity, decision making, and their interaction as potential mechanisms explaining tendencies towards a social-networks-use disorder. Decision making was influenced by affective responses, which could result in a higher risk of a potential addictive behavior. This is consistent with the findings from addiction research and with theoretical approaches assuming an imbalance between affective and cognitive processes in addictive behaviors.

Abstract

Background and aims

Online sports wagering is a popular and still growing gambling activity around the world. Like other types of gambling, it can lead to problems that include devastating financial, social, and health-related harms. The first analysis of actual online sports wagering activity (LaBrie et al., 2007) suggested that levels of financial and time involvement were more moderate than anticipated from earlier self-report studies. However, these findings are now more than a decade old.

Methods

The current study examined actual online sports wagering activity of a similar cohort of 32,262 gamblers who subscribed to a European online betting platform in February 2015 to understand how sports betting might have changed in ten years. Measures included subscriber characteristics, betting activities, and transactional activities.

Results

Players placed a median of 15 bets during the 8-month study period, made a median of 2.5 bets per betting day, had a median bet size of 6.1 euros, and experienced a median net loss of 25 euros. We were able to distinguish highly involved bettors in the top 2% of total wagered, net loss, and number of bets, whose behavior differed from that of the rest of the sample.

Discussion and Conclusions

Sports wagering behavior has remained relatively stable over time despite legislative changes and an increase in popularity, with a small subset of subscribers exhibiting disproportionately high engagement, transactional activity, and in-game betting. Further investigation of individual trajectories of wagering behavior and engagement with different types of sports wagering products is merited.

Abstract

Background and aims

Social determinants are closely related to addiction, both as a cause and a consequence of substance use and other addictive behaviors. The present paper examines prosocialness (i.e. the tendency to help, empathize, and care for others) among a population of young males. We compared prosocialness across different types of addiction and examined whether prosocialness varied according to the presence of multiple addictions.

Methods

A sample of 5,675 young males, aged 19–29 years old (Mean = 21.4; Median = 21), completed a questionnaire that included screening tools to identify addictive behaviors with regards to alcohol, nicotine, cannabis, gambling, and gaming. The questionnaire also included a scale to measure prosocialness.

Results

Compared to a no-addiction control group, the subgroups of young men suffering from behavioral addictions (i.e., gambling and gaming) reported the lowest levels of prosocialness. Respondents with an alcohol addiction also showed lower prosocialness compared to no-addiction controls. By contrast, no significant differences in prosocialness were found between respondents with nicotine disorder or cannabis disorder and the no-addiction controls. Furthermore, the number of addictions had no clear, observable effects on prosocialness. Significant differences were found between the no-addiction control group and the groups reporting one or more addictions, but not between the separate groups reporting one, two, and three or more addictions.

Discussion and conclusions

A better understanding of the social dimension affecting young males with addiction, particularly gambling and gaming addictions, may be useful for their prevention and treatment.

Abstract

Background and aims

It has been argued that similar to addictive behaviors, problematic Social Network sites use (PSNSU) is characterized by sensitized reward processing and cue-reactivity. However, no study to our knowledge has yet investigated cue-reactivity in PSNSU. The present study aims at investigating cue-reactivity to Social Network sites (i.e., Facebook)-related visual cues in individuals identified as problematic vs. non-problematic Facebook users by the Problematic Facebook Use Scale.

Methods

The Event-Related Potentials (ERPs) were recorded during the passive viewing of Facebook-related, pleasant, unpleasant, and neutral pictures in 27 problematic and 26 non-problematic users. Moreover, craving for Facebook usage was collected using a Likert scale.

Results

Despite problematic users were more likely to endorse higher craving than non-problematic ones, Facebook-related cues elicited larger ERP positivity (400–600 ms) than neutral, and comparable to unpleasant stimuli, in all Facebook users. Only in problematic users we found larger positivity (600–800 ms) to pleasant than unpleasant cues and higher craving to be related with lower later positivity (800–1,000 ms) to pleasant and unpleasant cues.

Discussion

Regardless of whether Facebook usage is problematic or non-problematic, Facebook-related cues seem to be motivationally relevant stimuli that capture attentional resources in the earlier stages of “motivated” attentional allocation. Moreover, our results support the view that in higher-craving problematic users, reduced abilities to experience emotions would be the result of defective emotion regulation processes that allow craving states to capture more motivational/attentional resources at the expense of other emotional states.

Abstract

Background and aims

Parental depressive symptoms may aggravate the effects of children’s emotional problems on risks for Internet gaming disorder (IGD). Here we examined the joint effects of children’s emotional problems and parents’ depressive symptoms on the incidence of IGD.

Methods

A large prospective, population-based cohort tested potential interactions between children’s emotional problems, parents’ depressive symptoms, and incidence of high risk of IGD (HRIGD). Family dyads (n=2,031) that included children who were non-HRIGD at baseline completed assessments of childhood and parental affective symptomatology. HRIGD was assessed at baseline and 12 months. Relative excess risk due to interaction (RERI) estimated the magnitudes of interactions.

Results

In terms of risk for the development of IGD, parental depression was 1.8 times greater, children’s emotional problems were 2.9 times greater, and both risk factors together were 6.1 times greater than the background risk, with the last two findings reaching statistical significance. The expected risk for the development of HRIGD was RR=3.7.

Discussion and conclusions

Children’s emotional problems demonstrated a particularly strong relationship with HRIGD. Joint effects of children’s emotional problems and depressive symptoms in parents on the incidence of HRIGD were stronger than the sum of the independent effects of each factor. The findings suggest that combining interventions for the treatment of children’s emotional problems and parents’ depressive symptoms may have extra risk reduction effects on preventing IGD in children and adolescents.

Abstract

Background and aims

Crypto-currency trading is a rapidly growing form of behaviour characterised by investing in highly volatile digital assets based largely on blockchain technology. In this paper, we review the particular structural characteristics of this activity and its potential to give rise to excessive or harmful behaviour including over-spending and compulsive checking. We note that there are some similarities between online sports betting and day trading, but also several important differences. These include the continuous 24-hour availability of trading, the global nature of the market, and the strong role of social media, social influence and non-balance sheet related events as determinants of price movements.

Methods

We review the specific psychological mechanisms that we propose to be particular risk factors for excessive crypto trading, including: over-estimations of the role of knowledge or skill, the fear of missing out (FOMO), preoccupation, and anticipated regret. The paper examines potential protective and educational strategies that might be used to prevent harm to inexperienced investors when this new activity expands to attract a greater percentage of retail or community investors.

Discussion and conclusions

The paper suggests the need for more specific research into the psychological effects of regular trading, individual differences and the nature of decision-making that protects people from harm, while allowing them to benefit from developments in blockchain technology and crypto-currency.

Abstract

Background and aims

The sports betting market has been growing rapidly over the last years, as have reports of problematic gambling behavior associated with betting. Due to the well-documented gambling problems of famous athletes and the betting supportive nature of many sports-related environments, athletes have been highlighted as a potential group at-risk for problematic sports betting. However, there currently remains a lack of research on individual-level athlete-specific risk-factors or mechanisms that might contribute to the development and perpetuation of betting-related problems. Here, we examine the influence of two potential risk-factors on sports betting behavior and problems: erroneous beliefs and athletes' emotional involvement.

Methods

201 athletes with different levels of expertise completed a newly developed scale to assess both factors. Participants were sampled from the general German population, predominantly male (83.08%) and on average 29.52 (SD = 11.05) years old. We use principal components analysis to detect patterns of covariation, potentially due to the proposed underlying latent factors, and regression analyses to test associations of these factors with betting behavior and problems.

Results

We find that athletes' emotional involvement was strongly associated with betting problems whereas erroneous beliefs were not. However, distorted cognitions/beliefs were associated with higher volumes and more frequent betting activities.

Discussion and Conclusions

This might contribute to betting problems in the long run. These results highlight athletes' emotional involvement and erroneous beliefs as potential targets for future intervention and prevention efforts.

Az Önkritikusság és Önmegerősítés Skála hazai validálása

Hungarian validation of the Self-Criticizing/Attacking and Self-Reassuring Scale

Mentálhigiéné és Pszichoszomatika
Authors: Borostyánkői Zsófia, Takács Szabolcs, and Szabó-Bartha Anett

Elméleti háttér: A Self-Criticizing/Attacking and Self-Reassuring Scale (Önkritikusság és Önmegerősítés Skála) magyar változatának köszönhetően az önkritikusság jelensége Magyarországon is mérhetővé vált. Cél: Jelen vizsgálat során bemutatásra kerül az Önkritikusság és Önmegerősítés Skála magyar mintán történő alkalmazhatósága, és az önegyüttérzéstől való félelem mellett a depresszióval, valamint az élettel való elégedettséggel vizsgált öszszefüggése. Módszerek: A kutatásban összesen 434 fő vett részt: 107 férfi és 327 nő, átlagéletkoruk 30,2 (SD = 12,15) év. Eredmények: A feltáró faktoranalízis az Önkritikusság és Önmegerősítés Skála (FSCRS-HU) esetén az eredetihez hasonló háromfaktoros struktúrát jelzett: a magyar mintán is megjelentek az alkalmatlan én (inadequate self), a megerősített én (reassured self) és a gyűlölt én (hated self) dimenziói. Ezt a struktúrát a konfirmatív faktoranalízis is megerősítette (RMSEA = 0,056; CFI = 0,945) és az alskálák belső megbízhatósága megfelelőnek bizonyult (Cronbach-α = 0,9; 0,87, 0,83, sorrendben). Az FSCRS-HU mind a depresszióval (r = 0,62 – 0,68; p < 0,01), mind az önegyüttérzéstől való félelemmel (r = 0,65 – 0,68; p = 0,01) és az élettel való elégedettséggel (r = [–0,51] – [–0,52]; p = 0,01) is szignifikáns, közepes erősségű együttjárást mutatott. Az életkor gyenge, az alkalmatlan én esetében pedig közepes mértékű szignifikáns hatása mindhárom alskálánál megjelent. A nemek közt azonban egyedül az alkalmatlan én esetén volt szignifikáns különbség (Z = –2,109; p = 0,040; rang Cohen-d = –0,229). Következtetések: Összességében az Önkritikusság és Önmegerősítés Skála megbízható és érvényes mérőeszköznek bizonyult hazai mintán is.

Background: Due to the Hungarian version of the Self-Criticizing/Attacking and Self-Reassuring Scale, the phenomenon of self-criticism has become measurable in Hungary as well. Aims: In the present study we present the applicability of the Self-Criticism and Self-Reassuring Scale on a Hungarian sample and its relationship to depression, life satisfaction, and fear of self-compassion. Methods: A total of 434 people participated in the research: 107 men and 327 women, with a mean age of 30.2 (SD = 12.15) years. Results: The exploratory factor analysis indicated a three-factor structure similar to the original version of the Self-Criticism and Self- Reassuring Scale, the Hungarian sample also showed the dimensions of the inadequate self, the reassured self and the hated self. This structure was also confirmed by confirmatory factor analysis (RMSEA = 0.056, CFI = 0.945) and the internal reliability of the subscales proved to be adequate (Cronbach's α = 0.9, 0.87, and 0.83, respectively). The FSCRS-HU showed a significant, moderate association with both depression (r = 0.62 – 0.68; p < 0.01) and fear of self-compassion (r = 0.65 – 0.68, p < 0.01) and life satisfaction (r = [–0.51] – [–0.52], p = 0.01). Age had a weak and, in the case of an inadequate self, a moderately significant effect on all three subscales. There was a significant difference between the sexes only in the case of the inadequate self (Z = –2.109, p = 0.040, rank Cohen’s d = –0.229). Conclusions: Overall, the Self-Criticism and Self- Reassuring Scale proved to be a reliable and valid measurement tool in the Hungarian sample as well.

A szülői nevelői stílus azonosítására alkalmas Parenting Styles and Dimensions Questionnaire hazai alkalmazásával szerzett tapasztalatok

Measurement experience with Parenting Styles and Dimensions Questionnaire developed for identifying parenting styles

Mentálhigiéné és Pszichoszomatika
Authors: Hadházi Éva, Takács Szabolcs, Csikós Gábor, Homoki Adél, Czinkóczki Annamária, Törő Krisztina, Kövesdi Andrea, and F. Földi Rita

Elmélet: A gyermekek egészséges testi, lelki fejlődésének támogatása a szülői vágyakon túlmutató társadalmi érdek. Az 1950-es évektől kezdve élénk kutatási érdeklődés övezi a szülői nevelői stílusnak a gyermek fejlődésére gyakorolt hatásvizsgálatát, ám a szülői nevelői stílust befolyásoló tényezőkről kevesebb eredmény áll a rendelkezésünkre. A tanul­ mány célja: a Parenting Styles and Dimensions Questionnaire (PSDQ) kérdőív magyar mintán történő kipróbálása, és a szülői nevelői stílus lehetséges szociodemográfiai, párkapcsolati és pszichoszociális összefüggéseinek vizsgálata volt. Módszerek: 711 fős (113 férfi, 598 nő, átlagéletkor 34,8 [SD = 10,91] év) önbeszámolós, keresztmetszeti vizsgálatunkban a PSDQ 32 tételes kérdőív mellett felvettük az Intim Kötődés Mérésére kidolgozott kérdőívet, a Kapcsolati Elégedettség Skálát, a Közvetlen Kapcsolatok Élményei kérdőívet, a STAI Vonásszorongás, a Zung-féle Önértékelő Depresszió Skálát, valamint a MOS Társas Támasz Kérdőívet. Eredmények: a konfirmatív faktorelemzés a PSDQ-HU önmagára és párjára vonatkoztatott változatának megbízható faktorstruktúráját igazolta (Saját – Self: SRMR = 0,065, RMSEA = 0,059, TLI = 0,796, CFI = 0,818; Másik – Other: SRMR = 0,066, RMSEA = 0,063, TLI = 0,890, CFI = 0,902). A Tekintélyelvű és Irányító skálák belső reliabilitása megfelelő (Cronbach-α = 0,73 – 0,95), a nemzetközi tapasztalatokhoz hasonlóan a Megengedő skála Cronbach-α értéke alacsonyabb (0,64). Az alskálák: Testi fenyítés, Verbális ellenségesség, Indokolatlan büntetés, Melegség, Érvelés, Demokratikus részvétel Cronbach-α értéke 0,54 – 0,93 között mozog. A nem, a családi állapot, valamint az, hogy valaki egyedüli gyermekként nő-e fel, szerepet játszhat a szülői nevelői stílu sában. A PSDQ-HU több kérdőívvel mutatott szignifikáns (p < 0,05) együttjárást. A párkapcso lati intimitás (r = –0,38 — 0,62), a felnőtt kötődés biztonsága (r = –0,31 — –0,57), a párkapcsolattal való elégedettség (r = –0,39 — 0,58) együtt jár azzal, hogy milyen szülőnek észleli valaki a párját. A vonásszorongás és a Zung-féle depresszió kérdőíven elért pontok a pár szülőként való negatívabb észlelésével korrelálnak (r = –0,33 — –0,38). A minél erősebb társas támasz észlelete a párra vonatkoztatott pozitívabb szülői percepcióval jár együtt (r = 0,36 — 0,46). Az önmagára vonatkoztatott szülői nevelői stílus nem mutat szignifikáns összefüggést egyetlen vizsgált skálaváltozóval sem, csak a nemmel és a testvér nélküli felnövekedéssel. Következtetések: A PSDQ-HU kérdőív az önmagunk szülőként való észlelése mellett alkalmas a párunk szülőként való észlelésének a monitorozására, s bár nem párokat vizsgáltunk, eredményeink felhívják a figyelmet a mentális állapot, a párkapcsolat minőségének percepciója és a pár szülői nevelői stílusának észlelete kö zötti kapcsolatra, amely a pszicho- edukációban és a családokkal, párokkal dolgozó szakemberek számára nyújthat hasznos támpontot.

Background: Promoting the healthy physical and mental development of children is a social interest that goes beyond parental desires. Since the 1950s, there has been a strong research interest in assessing the impact of parents’ parenting style on their children’s development, while we have more modest research findings on the factors influencing parental style. Aim: testing the Parenting Styles and Dimensions Questionnaire (PSDQ) developed by Robinson, Mandleco, Olsen and Hart (2001) on a Hungarian sample and examining the possible sociodemographic, relationship, and psychosocial contexts of the Parenting Style. Method: In our 711-person (113 fathers, 598 mothers, mean age 34.8 [SD = 10.91] years) self-report cross-sectional study, we checked the structure and internal reliability of the PSDQ 32-item questionnaire and its subscales correlation with relationship intimacy (IBM-HU), adult attachment (ECR-RS), relationship satisfaction (RAS-H), social support (MOSS SSS), and mental well-being (STAI-T, ZUNG). Results: Due to the confirmatory factor analysis a reliable factor structure of the self- and pair-version of PSDQ-HU was confirmed (Self: SRMR = 0.065, RMSEA = 0.059, TLI = 0.796, CFI = 0.818; Other: SRMR = 0.066, RMSEA = 0.063, TLI = 0.890, CFI = 0.902). The internal reliability of the Authoritarian and Authoritative scales (Cronbach-α = 0.73 – 0.95) is adequate. Similar to international experience, the Cronbach-α value of the Permissive scale is lower (0,635). The Physical Coercion, Verbal Hostility, Non-Reasoning, Warmth, Reasoning and Democratic Participation subscales Cronbach-α is between 0.54 – 0.93 values. Gender, marital status, and whether someone grows up as an only child can influence the parenting style. PSDQ-HU showed significant association with multiple questionnaires (p <0.05). Relationship intimacy (r = –0.38 — 0,62), adult attachment security (r = –0.31 — –0.57), and relationship satisfaction (r = –0.39 — 0.58) shows correlation with the way parents perceive their partners. The scores obtained on the trait anxiety and Zung depression questionnaires correlates with the perception of the couple as more negative parents (r = –0.33— –0.38). Perception of stronger social support is associated with more positive parental perception of the couple (r = 0.36— 0.46). Self-referenced parenting style does not show a significant correlation with any of the scale variables examined. Conclusions: The questionnaire is suitable for monitoring the perception of our couple as a parent, as well perceiving ourselves as a parent. Although we examined single persons, not couples, our results draw attention to the relationship between mental state, perception of the quality of the relationship, and perception of the couple’s parenting style. Our findings can provide a useful reference point for professionals working with families and couples, and in psychoeducation as well.

Validation of the Hungarian version of the short form of Spiritual Connection Questionnaire (SCQ-14)

A Spirituális Kapcsolat Kérdőív rövid változatának (SCQ-14) magyar validálása

Mentálhigiéné és Pszichoszomatika
Authors: Barbara Csala and Ferenc Köteles

Background: Spirituality is a human specific phenomenon associated with positive mental and physical health outcomes. From a scientific point of view, it is a complex construct which can be investigated in various ways. The Spiritual Connection Questionnaire (SCQ) measures spirituality independently from religiousness thus it appears to be an appropriate measure to assess religious and non-religious aspects of spirituality. Aim: The present study aimed to develop and validate the Hungarian version of the short form of the Spiritual Connection Questionnaire (SCQ-14). Furthermore, it aimed to investigate spirituality’s association with affect and thinking style. Methods: Participants of two non- representative community samples (n = 387 and n = 145) completed the following questionnaires online: short form of the Spiritual Connection Questionnaire, Spiritual Transcendence Scale, Rational–Experiential Inventory, and Positive and Negative Affect Schedule. Results: The Hungarian SCQ-14 showed an excellent internal consistency (Cronbach’s α = 0.94 and 0.97 on Sample 1 and 2, respectively). Confirmatory factor analyses indicated inappropriate fit with the theoretically assumed one-factor model (χ 2 = 435.848, df = 77, p < 0.001; CFI = 0.904; NFI = 0.886; RMSEA = 0.110 [90% CI = 0.100–0.120] on Sample 1, and χ 2 = 247.132, df = 77, p < 0.001; CFI = 0.917; NFI = 0.885; RMSEA = 0.123 [90% CI = 0.106–0.141] on Sample 2). In contrast, results of exploratory factor analyses indicated a one-factor structure on both samples. The SCQ-14 was positively associated with spiritual transcendence, experiential thinking style, and partly with positive affect. No significant correlations with rational thinking style and negative affect were found. Results of the multiple hierarchical linear regression analysis on both samples revealed a significant contribution of experiential thinking style and spiritual transcendence to spiritual connection after controlling for gender, age, educational qualification, and positive affect. Conclusions: The Hungarian version of the Spiritual Connection Questionnaire (SCQ-14) is a valid, psychometrically sound measure. Spiritual transcendence and experiential thinking style independently contribute to spiritual connection.

Elméleti háttér: A spiritualitás humánspecifikus jelenség, amelynek pozitív hatása a testi és mentális egészségre nézve bizonyított. Tudományos szempontból a spiritualitás meglehetősen összetett fogalom, számos különböző mérőeszközzel vizsgálható. A Spirituális Kapcsolat Kérdőív (Spiritual Connection Questionnaire, SCQ) vallástól függetlenül értékeli a spiritualitás szintjét, így vallásos és nem vallásos személyek körében egyaránt alkalmazható. Cél: Jelen kutatás célja Spirituális Kapcsolat Kérdőív rövid változatának (SCQ-14) magyar nyelvű validálása volt. További cél volt a spiritualitás gondolkozási stílussal és affektivitással való összefüggésének vizsgálata. Módszerek: A kutatás két nem reprezentatív mintából áll (n = 387 és n = 145), amelynek résztvevői a Spirituális Kapcsolat Kérdőív rövid változatát, a Spirituális Transzcendencia Kérdőívet, az Észszerűség–Megérzés Kérdőívet, valamint a Pozitív és Negatív Affektivitás Skálát töltötték ki online formában. Eredmények: Az SCQ-14 magyar változata kiváló belső konzisztenciát (Cronbach-α = 0,94 az első, és 0,97 a második mintán) jelzett. A konfirmatív faktoranalízis nem mutatott megfelelő illeszkedést az eredeti egyfaktoros modellhez képest (χ 2 = 435,848, df = 77, p < 0,001; CFI = 0,904; NFI = 0,886; RMSEA = 0,110 [90% CI = 0,100– 0,120] az első mintán, és χ 2 = 247,132, df = 77, p < 0,001; CFI = 0,917; NFI = 0,885; RMSEA = 0,123 [90% CI = 0,106–0,141] a második mintán). Ezzel szemben a feltáró faktoranalízis eredménye egyfaktoros modellt mutatott mindkét minta esetén. Az SCQ-14 továbbá pozitív irányú összefüggést mutatott a spirituális transzcendenciával, a tapasztalati gondolkodási stílussal, valamint részben a pozitív affektivitással is. A spirituális kapcsolat és negatív affektivitás, valamint a racionális gondolkodási stílus között nem jelentkezett szignifikáns korreláció. A mindkét mintán lefuttatott többszörös hierarchikus lineáris regresszió eredményei szerint a tapasztalati gondolkodás és a spirituális transzcendencia a nem, a kor, az iskolai végzettség és a pozitív affektivitás kontrollálása után is szignifikáns kapcsolatban maradt a spirituális kapcsolat pontszámmal. Következtetések: A Spirituális Kapcsolat Kérdőív rövid változatának magyar verziója valid, jó pszichometriai mutatókkal bíró mérőeszköz. A spirituális transzcendencia és a tapasztalati gondolkodás egymástól függetlenül is hozzájárulnak a spirituális kapcsolathoz.
