The lived experiences of late-adolescent female suicide survivors: ‘A part of me died’
WA Hoffmann, C Myburgh, M Poggenpoel
Health SA Gesondheid , 2010,
Abstract: People’s thoughts often focus on the suicide victim immediately after a completed suicide. Yet, the real victims of such an event are those individuals who are left behind to cope with the aftermath of the suicide. This phenomenological psychological study explored the lived experiences of lateadolescent suicide survivors, particularly those negative experiences that seemed to worsen in the weeks and months after a significant other’s completed suicide. The research participants were five female late-adolescents (aged 17–22 years) who were recruited by means of purposive sampling at a South African tertiary institution and at youth camps. Data collection consisted of collagefacilitated, face-to-face phenomenological interviews. In addition, some participants provided documentary material in the form of personal diaries, letters and poems. The data analysis was conducted according to Giorgi’s phenomenological method. The following salient experiences emerged during the data analysis: guilt, self-blame, blaming others or God, anger, loss or restriction of ‘self’, depression, suboptimal behavioural coping patterns, changes in relationship dynamics, and suicidality. The results of this study can be used by mental health professionals and caregivers to support adolescent suicide survivors effectively, in the midst of their mourning.
The relationship between the perception of own locus of control and aggression of adolescent boys
L Breet, C Myburgh, M Poggenpoel
South African Journal of Education , 2010,
Abstract: Aggression is increasingly seen in most parts of South African society. Aggressive behaviour of boys in secondary school often results from frustrations caused by perceived high expectations of others regarding the role, locus of control, and personality of boys. Locus of control plays an important role in a person’s perception concerning a situation and possible reactions to what is happening, or should be happening. A 56-item questionnaire, based on Rotter’s “Locus of control” questionnaire, and the DIAS Scale were used. The questionnaire was completed by 440 boys in Grades 9, 10, and 11. Various factor, item and differential statistical analyses were conducted. Three constructs were identified, i.e. physical, verbal, and indirect aggression. Results indicated that locus of control has a significant influence on verbal and indirect aggression. The differential analysis indicated that contextual variables (language of tuition, age, and grade) play a significant, but not substantial, role in aggression. Furthermore, boys with an internal locus of control are significantly and substantially less aggressive than boys with an external locus of control, with respect to physical, verbal and indirect aggression.
Multivariate differential analyses of adolescents’ experiences of aggression in families
C Myburgh, M Poggenpoel, D Du Plessis
South African Journal of Education , 2011,
Abstract: Aggression is part of South African society and has implications for the mental health of persons living in South Africa. If parents are aggressive adolescents are also likely to be aggressive and that will impact negatively on their mental health. In this article the nature and extent of adolescents’ experiences of aggression and aggressive behaviour in the family are investigated. A deductive explorative quantitative approach was followed. Aggression is reasoned to be dependent on aspects such as self-concept, moral reasoning, communication, frustration tolerance and family relationships. To analyse the data from questionnaires of 101 families (95 adolescents, 95 mothers and 91 fathers) Cronbach Alpha, various consecutive first and second order factor analyses, correlations, multiple regression, MANOVA, ANOVA and Scheffè/ Dunnett tests were used. It was found that aggression correlated negatively with the independent variables; and the correlations between adolescents and their parents were significant. Regression analyses indicated that different predictors predicted aggression. Furthermore, differences between adolescents and their parents indicated that the experienced levels of aggression between adolescents and their parents were small. Implications for education are given.

Abstract: The experiences of wives of pilots undertaking overseas flights. The experiences of wives of pilots undertaking overseas flights are explored to generate guidelines for mental health promotion of such couples. An exploratory/ descriptive, qualitative and contextual design was used. Phenomenological semi-structured interviews were con-ducted with a purposively selected sample of seven wives of pilots undertaking overseas flights. A literature control was conducted as a measure of reliability. Results indicated that the wives needed communication with and support from their husbands. Guidelines for mental health promotion of the marital couples were formulated. These guidelines can be operationalised in a mental health promotion programme for airways communities. Opsomming Die belewenis van vrouens van vlieeniers wat oorsese vlugte onderneem word verken en beskryf ten einde 'n basis te voorsien waaruit riglyne gegenereer kan word vir geestesgesondheidsbevordering van sodanig betrokke huwelikspare. 'n Verkennende, beskrywende, kwalitatiewe en kontekstuele ontwerp is gebruik. Fenomenologiese semi-gestruktureerde onderhoude is gevoer met 'n doelgerigte geselekteerde steekproef van sewe vrouens van vlieeniers wat oorsese vlugte onderneem. 'n Literatuurkontrole is uitgevoer as betroubaarheidsmaatreel. Resultate van hierdie studie dui daarop dat die vrouens 'n behoefte aan kommunikasie met en ondersteuning van hulle mans het. Riglyne vir geestesgesondheidsbevordering vir huwelikspare/ waar die mans buitelandse vlugte onderneem, is geformuleer. Hierdie riglyne kan geoperasionaliseer word in 'n geestesgesondheidsbevorderingsprogram vir 'n lugdiensgemeenskap.
Exploring the needs and resources of children in a haematology-oncology unit
AE Oberholzer, E Nel, CPH Myburgh, M Poggenpoel
Health SA Gesondheid , 2011,
Abstract: Too often a child’s body is restored to health in the hospital, but the child is sent home with emotional wounds. This study explored the needs of children in a haematology-oncology unit as well as the resources that could be mobilised in order to address these needs by firstly carrying out a literature review. A field study was then conducted in order to prioritise the resources according to their importance for children in a haematology-oncology unit. A definite trend could be found in the way that the children responded to the request to prioritise the resources. The first three resources, as chosen by the children, all concerned the external social environment of the child. It could therefore be concluded that support from parents and other people of significance are most important to the child and should be taken into account when facilitating support for children in a haematology-oncology unit. It could also be concluded that these children do not experience sufficient control in their situation and it could therefore be suggested that children in a haematology-oncology unit should experience more control and power in their situation. So dikwels word ‘n kind se liggaam genees in die hospitaal, maar hierdie selfde kind gaan huis toe met emosionele wonde. Die behoeftes van kinders in ‘n hematologie-onkologie eenheid is ondersoek asook die hulpbronne wat gemobiliseer kan word om hierdie behoeftes aan te spreek deur gebruik te maak van ‘n literatuurstudie. Daarna is ‘n veldstudie gedoen om hierdie hulpbronne te prioritiseer volgens die belangrikheid daarvan vir kinders in ‘n hematologieonkologie eenheid. Die manier waarop die kinders die hulpbronne geprioritiseer het, het ‘n definitiewe tendens getoon. Die eerste drie hulpbronne wat deur die kinders gekies is, is al drie hulpbronne wat die eksterne sosiale omgewing van die kind behels. Die gevolgtrekking kan dus gemaak word dat die ondersteuning van ouers en ander persone wat belangrik is vir die kind, van uiterste belang is en in aanmerking geneem behoort te word in die fasilitering van ondersteuning van kinders in ‘n hematologie-onkologie eenheid. Die gevolgtrekking wat gemaak kan word is dat hierdie kinders nie genoeg beheer ervaar in hulle situasie nie en daarom word voorgestel dat kinders in ‘n hematologie-onkologie eenheid meer bemagtig behoort te word gegewe hulle omstandighede.
