    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.4, pp. 485-504, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.026126

    Abstract As the essence of traditional Chinese educational thought, heuristic teaching has gradually enriched and developed its ideas through the continuous efforts of educational researchers of the past dynasties. In front-line teaching, heuristic teaching, as a teaching principle that can help teachers and students to interact and learn, undoubtedly plays an important role in students’ acquisition of knowledge and scientific thinking activities. But teachers’ understanding of heuristic teaching is not the same. In actual teaching, there are obvious gaps in language ability among different teachers. This research aims to enrich the heuristic teaching theory based on the perspective of psychology, and… More >

    Abstract In order to explore the criminal psychological mechanism of burglars, this study adopts the qualitative research method of grounded theory to conduct in-depth interviews with 41 burglars in two prisons in Jiangxi Province, China. Nvivo 11.0 was used to code-construct and qualitatively analyze the interview content in order to refine the influencing factors and psychological evolution process of burglary behavior. The findings revealed that (1) burglary risk factors include burglary cognition, burglary motivation, burglary decision-making, delinquent peers, burglary opportunity, and incomplete reformation. (2) There are three stages in the psychological evolution process of burglars: cognitive formation, motivational dominance, and behavioral… More > Graphic Abstract

    Wenyuan Wang1,#, Shuili Luo1,#, Everett L. Worthington Jr2, Haijiang Li1,3,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.4, pp. 539-550, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.025634

    Abstract Previous studies have found that self-control training was effective in improving an individual’s self-control, which plays an important role in inhibiting negative emotions. However, it is unclear whether self-control training can facilitate refraining from retaliation. This study randomly assigned participants (N = 55) to a training condition (building self-control by avoiding sweets) or a control condition. Before and after training, participants completed the Transgression-Related Interpersonal Motivations Inventory-18 (TRIM-18) and a modified Taylor aggression task once each. Participants in the training condition inflicted more low-intensity penalties on the previous offender compared to control participants. Participants in the training condition reported lower revenge scores… More >

    Heesup Han1, Hong Ngoc Nguyen2, Hyerin Lee3, Sanghyeop Lee4,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.4, pp. 449-469, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.025379

    Abstract Since the outbreak of COVID-19, tourists have been increasingly concerned over various risks of international travel, while knowledge of the pandemic appears to vary significantly. In addition, as travel restrictions continue to impact adversely on international tourism, tourism efforts should be placed more on the domestic markets. Via structural equation modeling, this study unearthed different risk factors impacting Korean travelers’ choices of alternative local destinations in the post-pandemic era. In addition, this study extended the goal-directed behavior framework with the acquisition of perceived risk and knowledge of COVID-19, which was proven to hold a significantly superior explanatory power of tourists’… More >
