Piccinini, Cesar Augusto;Castro, Elisa Kern;Alvarenga, Patrícia;Vargas, Silvia;Oliveira, Viviane Z.;
Estudos de Psicologia (Natal) , 2003, DOI: 10.1590/S1413-294X2003000100009
Abstract: studies indicate that the presence of physical chronic disease in childhood may constitute an important factor to the quality of mother-child interaction. however, few studies investigate the childrearing practices in children with physical chronic disease. the daily care demand by the disease treatment as well as the child physical and emotional fragility may affect the childrearing practices. fourty mothers participated in this study, half of them with a child with physical chronic disease and the other with a child without this condition. the children were of both sexes, 3 to 4 years old. the participants were selected in public hospitals and schools. a semi-structured interview was used to investigate the mother's childrearing practices, examined by content analysis. the results show a marginally significant difference showing that the group of mothers of the chronic disease children uses coercive practices less frequently. moreover, there was a significant difference between the groups in relation to the use of physical punishment and privation/penalty, suggesting that mothers of chronic disease children use less frequently this type of practice. the results support the initial hypothesis that mothers of chronic disease children would be less coercive when compared to mothers of the other group.

Abstract: the goal of the present study is to examine the subjective well-being in adolescents who have undergone solid organ transplantation and its relationship to self-concept, self-esteem and variables related to disease and transplant. twenty-six transplanted adolescents, who were in routine treatment after transplant in three public hospitals in madrid, spain, aged 13-17 years old, were part of the study. measures to evaluate subjective well-being, self-concept and self-esteem and a questionnaire with socio demographic and clinical data were used. it was shown that positive affect was predicted by self-esteem, while self-concept and waiting list time were predictors of negative affect. these results support the idea that there is an important connection between clinical and psychological variables. therefore, indicate the need to help transplanted adolescents to construct adequate levels of self-concept and self-esteem. psychological interventions that may facilitate the adolescent have body and health problem conscience, helping them to accept their condition and limitations are necessary to minimize suffering.

A experiência de maternidade de m?es de crian?as com e sem doen?a cr?nica no segundo ano de vida
Castro, Elisa Kern;Piccinini, Cesar Augusto;
Estudos de Psicologia (Natal) , 2004, DOI: 10.1590/S1413-294X2004000100011
Abstract: the present study investigated the experience of motherhood in mothers of children with and without disease. sixteen mother-child dyads took part in the study, eight of which composed by children with physical chronic disease for at least one year, and eight with children having no chronic health problems. the children were of both sexes and 24 months old. all mothers were interviewed on child development and the experience of motherhood, and the mothers from the group with chronic disease were also interviewed on impressions and feelings concerning the child's chronic disease. content analysis performed on the interviews showed that the experience of motherhood was affected by the presence of chronic disease in the child. this appeared especially in the suffering of these mothers, with ambivalent feelings concerning the child, guilt, anxiety, overprotection, separation anxiety and feelings of little help from other people. these findings point to the importance of a preventive work and even of intervention, which may contribute towards minimizing eventual consequences of the presence of chronic disease not only for the child him/herself but also for his/her family.

Abstract: No presente trabalho, apresentamos a defini o de Psicologia da Saúde e Psicologia Hospitalar, esta última como especialidade exclusivamente brasileira. Refletimos, também, sobre a forma o acadêmica, o mercado de trabalho e a realidade da saúde no País. Consideramos que existem incongruências entre a forma o de base, a nossa realidade social e a inser o de psicólogos no ramo da saúde. Discutimos a inclus o da Psicologia Hospitalar na Psicologia da Saúde, área ampla que utiliza os conhecimentos das Ciências Biomédicas, Psicologia Clínica e Psicologia Comunitária para intervir em distintos contextos no ambito sanitário. In the present article the authors present the Health Psychology and the Hospital Psychology definition, the last one as an exclusive Brazilian specialization. Moreover, we reflect about the academic studies, the work market and the Brazilian health reality. We found some incongruence among the career studies, the social reality and the psychologists’ work in the health field. We discuss the Hospital Psychology incorporation in the Health Psychology area, which uses the Biomedical, Clinical and Community knowledge to intervene in different health contexts.

Abstract: Quality of life (QoL) has been considered worthy of assessment in the treatment, prevention and rehabili- tation of cancer patients. As it has a psychological dimension, is important to investigate the relationship between quality of life and psychological concepts like self-efficacy and psychological well-being. Ob- jective of the present study is to examine the QoL, self-efficacy and psychological well-being in adults with cancer. Methods: 50 patients completed self-report questionnaires: WHOQOL-bref, General Self- Efficacy Scale and GHQ-12 in two periods (T1 = timeline; T2 = follow up 1 year later). A paired t-test did not identify significant differences in the QoL self-efficacy and psychological well-being between T1 and T2. However, men had a better overall QoL and in the physical and social dimensions, and psycho- logical well-being in T1 compared with the women. In T2 there were significant differences between men and women only in the social and psychological dimensions of the QoL. The self-efficacy in T2 was the only predictive variable of the QoL in T2, explaining 71.9% of its variance. It is concluded that, in the pe- riod of one year, the QoL, psychological well-being and self-efficacy were stable, but gender differences were identified. The variables measured in T1 were incapable of predicting the QoL in T2. The gender differences found in QoL and psychological well-being can be used to guide specific future interventions with these patients.
