    Abstract Trauma-related flashback is one of the typical symptoms of patients suffered from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which intrudes into the body and mind of patients uncontrobaly and repeatedly. Psychodynamic theories of mechanisms of the formation and involuntary repetition of trauma-related flashback establish a foundation for most cognitive theories of PTSD. Cognitive behavioral theories of PTSD, from the initial use of behavioristic principles (e.g., conditioning, alternative learning, generalization, etc.) to explain fear conditioning to the emphasis on the roles of cognitive and behavioral factors (e.g., cognitive model or schema, completion tendency, associative network, data-driven processing, analogue representation, etc.) in the representation… More >

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.21, No.3, pp. 111-122, 2019, DOI:10.32604/IJMHP.2019.011040
    Abstract In extant literature, considerable research has focused on the provoking effect of unfavorable work situations on counterproductive work behaviors (CWB) (i.e., abusive supervision→trigger CWB). Adopting the perspective of positive organizational scholarship and drawing on affective event theory (AET), this study examined the inhibitory effect of perceptions of favorable work situation on counterproductive work behaviors (i.e., uplifts affective events→affective well-being→inhibit CWB). Hierarchical linear modeling was used to test the hypotheses in a sample of 65 middle school teachers in China who completed daily diary method surveys over 15 consecutive working days, and got within-individual observations (level 1, N = 975) were… More >
