    Self-Compassion Moderates the Effect of Contingent Self-Esteem on Well-Being: Evidence from Cross-Sectional Survey and Experiment

    Ruirui Zhang1, Xuguang Zhang2, Minxin Yang3, Haoran Zhang4,5,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.26, No.2, pp. 117-126, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.045819

    Abstract Contingent self-esteem captures the fragile nature of self-esteem and is often regarded as suboptimal to psychological functioning. Self-compassion is another important self-related concept assumed to promote mental health and well-being. However, research on the relation of self-compassion to contingent self-esteem is lacking. Two studies were conducted to explore the role of self-compassion, either as a personal characteristic or an induced mindset, in influencing the effects of contingent self-esteem on well-being. Study 1 recruited 256 Chinese college students (30.4% male, mean age = 21.72 years) who filled out measures of contingent self-esteem, self-compassion, and well-being. The… More >

    Yuxin Li1, Fengping Yan2, Yixin Zhang1, Man Li1,3,4, Tour Liu1,3,4,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.6, pp. 767-781, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.026969

    Abstract Background: With the development of information technology, mobile phone has brought much convenience to people’s lives but also caused many negative consequences due to excessive use, such as mobile phone addiction and nomophobia. Previous studies have explored the relationship between the Big Five Personality and problematic mobile phone use (PMPU). However, they focus on mobile phone addiction. Although there is a correlation between nomophobia and mobile phone addiction, the psychological structure is different. Therefore, it is necessary to explore the relationship between personality and nomophobia and the underlying mechanism. This study aims to examine the relationship… More > Graphic Abstract

    Sequential Mediating Effect of Proactive Coping and Perceived Stress in the Relationships between Self-Esteem Stability and Life Satisfaction

    Seungju Hyun*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.24, No.3, pp. 425-437, 2022, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2022.018829

    Abstract While the effect of self-esteem stability on life satisfaction is widely verified, it is not very known how coping strategies explain this relationship. The present study focused on proactive coping, a preliminary step to minimize the impact of expected stressors, and a process of recognizing stressful events as challenges and actively managing them. Specifically, this study (N = 280) examined whether proactive coping and perceived stress mediated the relationship between self-esteem stability and life satisfaction in a sequential manner. The results indicate that proactive coping and perceived stress sequentially mediated the relationship between self-esteem stability and More >

    Neighborhood Disadvantage and Self-Esteem—Do Socioeconomic and Relational Resources Matter?

    Joongbaeck Kim1, Manacy Pai2,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.24, No.3, pp. 311-329, 2022, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2022.017555

    Abstract Extensive research suggests that living in a socioeconomically disadvantaged neighborhood is associated with poor mental health. Few studies, however, have examined (1) whether neighborhood disadvantage is associated with residents’ self-esteem; and (2) the extent to which individual-level socioeconomic resources such as income and education, and relational resources such as marriage and social support moderate the association between neighborhood disadvantage and self-esteem. This study employs data from the Americans’ Changing Lives panel survey (hereafter ACL), a 15-year panel study of the U.S. adult population ages 25 and older in original sample. Because hierarchical linear model was… More >
