Background. Several studies have highlighted the importance of psychosocial needs in cancer patients’ spouses. Our study’s aim was to reduce these spouses’ needs, using a combination of two psychotherapeutic methods: 1. Psychosocial needs’ organization into a hierarchy; 2. Problem-solving method. We also assessed perception of inequity, which is a new concept used in psycho-oncology. This perception focusses on two feelings that spouses might experience in their relationships: firstly, the feeling of overbenefit and underinvestment; secondly, the feeling of underbenefit and overinvestment. Method. A longitudinal design with three assessments (T0,T1,T2) and two groups (experimental, control) was employed. Spouses fulfilled questionnaires: socio-demographic questionnaire, Psychosocial Needs Inventory, Perception of Inequity, Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale. At T0, all participants organised their psychosocial needs into a hierarchy. Experimental group practiced problem-solving method before control group. Indeed, experimental group practiced it between T0 and T1 while control group practiced it only between T1 and T2. Results. Thirty-seven spouses participated: N experimental group=19; N control group=18. Whenever the combination was given, repeated measures’ ANOVAs highlighted a significant decrease in unsatisfied psychosocial needs when participants have received both methods. Nevertheless, our results did not replicate previous findings according to which spouses experience a higher feeling of overinvestment and underbenefit than feeling of underinvestment and overbenefit. Discussion. Our results underline the interest of proposing psychotherapeutic methods to cancer patients’ spouses to reduce unsatisfied psychosocial needs: clinical implications will be further discussed. Moreover, perception of inequity is a significant concept in psycho-oncology which consequences will also be discussed. [less ▲]

According to Gender Role Theory, girls and boys learn to develop interests and attitudes consistent with their gender, resulting in behaviors and characteristics known as “masculine” and “feminine” (Golombok & Fivush, 1994). Several authors have claimed that gender role, more than sex (male vs. female), explains the higher prevalence of anxiety in girls than in boys (e.g., Palapattu, Kingery, & Ginsburg, 2006). The expression of fear and anxiety is accepted and even encouraged among girls but is inconsistent with the masculine gender role: Boys are expected to face their fears and use adaptive behavior to handle the situation (Bem, 1981). Although the link between anxiety and gender role is well known for adults, empirical evidence concerning children is much scarcer (Palapattu et al., 2006). In this study, we first examine the importance of gender role in children’s anxiety. We also investigate the influence of a possible moderator in the relation between anxiety and gender role: emotional intelligence (EI). EI has been shown to protect against the development of anxiety in children (Williams, Daley, Burnside, & Hammond-Rowley, 2010). Our sample included 200 Belgian children (105 girls) aged 9 to 13 years old. The questionnaires used were the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory for Children (STAIC; Spielberger, 1973), the Trait Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire Child Form (TEIQue-CSF; Mavrovelli & Petrides, 2008), and the Children’s Personal Attributes Questionnaire (CPAQ; Hall & Halberstadt, 1980). The latter questionnaire is composed of three subscales: Masculinity (M, male-stereotyped traits but socially desirable in both sexes, e.g., leadership), Femininity (F, female-stereotyped traits but socially desirable in both sexes, e.g., kindness), Masculinity-Femininity (M-F, traits socially more acceptable for one sex or the other, e.g., emotional vulnerability for females and aggressiveness for males). High scores on the M-F scale indicate tendencies toward masculinity. Hierarchical multiple regression analyses were conducted to investigate the effect of gender role on the STAIC score beyond biological sex and EI as a moderator in relations between gender role and anxiety. Results indicated that gender role explains the anxiety score better than biological sex. Also, EI and the interaction between EI and M-F scores (TEIQue-CSF*M-F) were significant predictors of anxiety score. The children with low M-F scores and low EI had significantly higher levels of anxiety, while those with high M-F scores and high EI had the lowest levels of anxiety. These findings reveal not only the effect of gender role in the development of anxiety, but also the moderating effect of EI. [less ▲]

Background and purpose: Optimizing communication between radiotherapy team members and patients and between colleagues requires training. This study applies a randomized controlled design to assess the efficacy of a 38-h communication skills training program. Material and methods: Four radiotherapy teams were randomly assigned either to a training program or to a waiting list. Team members’ communication skills and their self-efficacy to communicate in the context of an encounter with a simulated patient were the primary endpoints. These encounters were scheduled at the baseline and after training for the training group, and at the baseline and four months later for the waiting list group. Encounters were audiotaped and transcribed. Transcripts were analyzed with content analysis software (LaComm) and by an independent rater. Results: Eighty team members were included in the study. Compared to untrained team members, trained team members used more turns of speech with content oriented toward available resources in the team (relative rate [RR] = 1.38; p = 0.023), more assessment utterances (RR = 1.69; p < 0.001), more empathy (RR = 4.05; p = 0.037), more negotiation (RR = 2.34; p = 0.021) and more emotional words (RR = 1.32; p = 0.030), and their self-efficacy to communicate increased (p = 0.024 and p = 0.008, respectively). Conclusions: The training program was effective in improving team members’ communication skills and their self-efficacy to communicate in the context of an encounter with a simulated patient. Future study should assess the effect of this training program on communication with actual patients and their satisfaction. Moreover a cost-benefit analysis is needed, before implementing such an intensive training program on a broader scale. [less ▲]

This study (n = 237 Belgian children; mean age = 12.3 years; SD = 0.41) examined the factor structure, reliability, and validity of the French translation of the Revised Childhood Anxiety Sensitivity Index (CASI-R). We obtained a hierarchical factor structure with four lower-order factors – “fear of cognitive dyscontrol,” “fear of publicly observable anxiety reactions,” “fear of respiratory symptoms,” and “fear of cardiovascular symptoms” – loading on a single higher-order factor (“anxiety sensitivity”). The French translation revealed acceptable internal consistency and a good interitem structure. Anxiety sensitivity was connected with the anxiety and depression scales but the correlation between the CASI-R and the depression score was more modest than that between the CASI-R and the trait anxiety score, indicating that the CASI-R is an anxiety scale. Girls reported more fear of anxious feelings than boys. This revised version allows for a more fine-grained assessment of the anxiety sensitivity concept. [less ▲]

The existence and importance of psychosocial needs experienced by spouses of cancer patients have been demonstrated repeatedly. In order to reduce these needs, our study assesses the efficacy of the combination of two psychotherapeutic methods: psychosocial needs' organisation into a hierarchy and problem solving. Our longitudinal and randomized study comprises three assessment times, separated from three weeks, (T0, T1 and T2) and two groups (experimental and control). At T0, both groups realize the hierarchy of needs. Between T0 and T1, only the experimental group practices problem solving. Then, between T1 and T2, the control group practices this method too. Questionnaires administered at each assessment time are: sociodemographic questionnaire, Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS), Psychosocial Needs Inventory (PNI), self-efficacy questionnaire (GSES). Between T0 and T1, a general improvement in scores is expected in both groups: it is expected to be higher in the experimental group who completed the problem solving. Between T1 and T2, scores in the control group should improve to join those obtained by theexperimental group at T1. Thirty-seven people participated: experimental group (N=19, male=12, female=7) and control group (N=18, male=11, female=7). The results confirm our initial hypotheses and emphasize the importance of taking care of cancer patients' spouses. [less ▲]

Introduction. La mucoviscidose est une maladie génétique grave, limitant la durée de vie du patient et entraînant de nombreuses complications. Les progrès scientifiques et médicaux ont conduit à l’augmentation de l’espérance de vie, de sorte que l’âge moyen de survie est d’environ 40 ans. Dans ce contexte, la qualité de vie (QV) est devenue un objectif thérapeutique important pour les patients atteints de mucoviscidose. Cependant, malgré un intérêt croissant pour le QV, celle-ci a été sous-investiguée chez les enfants âgés de 6 à 12 ans. Parallèlement, on observe que les professionnels de la santé ne sont plus seuls à intervenir dans la prise en charge du jeune patient. L’essentiel du traitement ayant lieu à la maison, la responsabilité concernant la gestion de la maladie reposent désormais sur les épaules de la famille. Ainsi, les parents d’enfants atteints de mucoviscidose doivent faire face à une variété de stresseurs pouvant entraîner d’importantes implications pour le bien-être psychosocial du système familial. Ces dernières années, le rôle de la famille dans l’adaptation des enfants atteints d’une maladie chronique a reçu une attention particulière. À l’heure actuelle, on reconnaît l’importance et l’influence de la relation parent-enfant dans de multiples aspects du développement social et émotionnel de l’enfant. Cependant, dans les recherches en pédiatrie, les pères sont sous-représentés. C’est principalement la relation mère-enfant malade qui a été pris en considération en ignorant la relation père-enfant malade. Objectifs. Ce projet de thèse s’oriente autour de trois objectifs : (1) étudier l’impact de la mucoviscidose sur la QV et, de manière plus générale, sur l’ajustement de l’enfant et de ses parents ; (2) comprendre le lien entre l’ajustement des parents et celui de l’enfant et identifier les mécanismes spécifiques par lesquels les parents influent sur la QV de l’enfant ; (3) étudier l’effet du genre. Méthodologie. Chaque triade (enfant, père et mère) devra répondre à un ensemble de questionnaire évaluant l’ajustement émotionnel, cognitif et comportemental ainsi que le fonctionnement familial et la qualité de vie. Afin d'isoler la spécificité de la mucoviscidose, trois groupes seront créés : mucoviscidose – asthme – sain. Le début du recrutement est prévu en septembre 2012. Contribution. Cette recherche se veut intégrative et contribuera à mettre en évidence les facteurs prédicteurs de la résilience et des difficultés d’ajustement chez les enfants souffrant de mucoviscidose et leur parent. Les résultats contribueront à l’avancement des connaissances et nous permettraient d’influer sur les initiatives de prévention. [less ▲]

Introduction: The concept of emotional intelligence (EI) is characterized by an individual difference to feel, identify, understand, regulate and use their own emotions and those of others. Several studies show a negative association between EI and various fields such as depression and anxiety. At various times, EI has been described as a protective factor against the development of certain disorders or dysfunctions. However, these studies have often been conducted with an adult population and fewer children. But a child is not a miniature adult, there may be differences between child emotional life and that of an adult. Objectives: This study aims to examine the internal consistency of the short version of the scale and French IE in children. Then, the association between EI and trait anxiety is studied, and the share of explanatory IE in the presence of trait anxiety in children, taking into account the effect of gender. Methods: A sample of 198 Belgian children aged between 9 and 13 years old completed the Trait Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire - Short Form Children (TEIQue - CSF) and the State Trait Anxiety Index for Children (STAIC). Results: We observe a good internal consistency of the French version of TEIQue - CSF (α = .83) and a negative correlation between EI and STAIC (r = - .43). The regression analyzes show that EI significantly explains 18% of the variance STAIC. No gender effect was observed. Discussion: As expected, this study demonstrates a negative association between emotional intelligence of the child and the presence of anxiety symptoms, as well as the lack of gender effect in the scores of EI. We also note that the scores TEIQue - CSF significantly predict the presence of anxiety symptoms in boys as well as girls. This is consistent with other studies in a population of adults or adolescents. [less ▲]

La prise en charge des enfants souffrant de maladie chronique s'est progressivement déplacée de l'hôpital à la maison où les responsabilités, concernant la gestion de la maladie, reposent sur les épaules de la famille. Les chercheurs, en reconnaissant ces changements, ont commencé à étudier le contexte familial de l'enfant avec une maladie chronique (Walker, Ford & Donald, 1987). Toutefois, la particularité de la prise en charge d’un enfant atteint de mucoviscidose a été peu étudiée. Par ailleurs, les connaissances dont nous disposons sur la manière dont les parents gèrent la prise en charge de la maladie de leur enfant sont principalement basées sur des recherches ne tenant compte que de la perspective des mères, en ignorant celle des pères (Hayes & Savage, 2008). Par conséquent, les objectifs de cette étude globale, de nature exploratoire, sont: (1) mettre en évidence les différentes variables qui peuvent jouer un rôle dans l’ajustement des parents à la maladie de leur enfant; (2) identifier l’impact de ces variables sur la qualité de vie de ces derniers; (3) tester l’existence de différences dans les résultats selon le sexe du parent.

En termes de santé, la prévention du stress psychologique sur le lieu de travail devient un enjeu important. Outre ses bénéfices sur la santé générale, l’activité physique est considérée comme une stratégie de coping face au stress [Steptoe et al., 1989]. Afin de répondre au manque de temps souvent mis en avant par les employés, nous avons décidé de tester un programme d’activités physiques en entreprise. Le défi consistait à élaborer un programme pouvant être réalisé n’importe où, sans équipement spécifique et sans engendrer une sudation importante des participants. Cette étude avait pour but d’identifier l’impact de ce programme sur le stress psychologique (lié au travail) et sur les niveaux d’activité physique. Ce programme (2 x 45 min/semaines pendant 10 semaines) alliait exercices gymniques et jeux de team building. Des salariées (n=29) de l’ULg ont participé à ce programme quasi-expérimental de type « Switching Replication Design ». Elles ont répondu à trois reprises à un questionnaire (pré-test, post-test Groupe 1 et post-test Groupe 2) et à une interview individuelle (post-expérimentation). La méthode d’évaluation du stress s’est appuyée sur la Job Stress Scale [Spielberger et al., 1970], la Perceived Stress Scale [Cohen et al., 1983] et la Mesure de Stress Psychologique [Lemyre et al., 1990]. Nous avons constaté une diminution significative du stress lié au travail (-9.2%) et du stress général (-12,3%) et une augmentation du niveau d’activité physique. Le G1 maintient les changements pendant 3 mois après l’intervention. Après le programme, 6 sujets ont repris une activité physique régulière. D’autres effets ont été observés : une meilleure perception de la santé et une diminution des douleurs physiques perçues. Ce programme souligne l’importance de la détente au travail, de l’ambiance positive et de la relaxation dans les exercices proposés afin de diminuer le niveau de stress via l’activité physique.

This study examines the processes and the life domains of the Child Quality of Life Systemic Inventory (ISQV-E(c) in French - Missotten, Etienne & Dupuis, 2007), involved in the suffering of depressed children, assessed with the CDI. These questionnaires were administered to 453 to school age children (8-12 years old) and they all spoke French (273 French, 180 Belgian). An initial analysis was undertaken to verify the nature of the model, additive vs multiplicative, underlying the ISQV-E(c). Five factors were tested: the Goal, the Discrepancy (distance between State and Goal), Speed, Rank and the Gap. Regression analysis revealed that only the Goal and the Discrepancy are significantly related to suffering depression (additive model). From these two factors, a second analysis was performed to account for domains of life most involved in suffering from depression. The results dealt with a PLS path modeling helped to update the 10 domains of life, of the twenty-evaluated by the ISQV-E(c), likely to predict depressive suffering of children. The specific contribution of the ISQV-E(c) is discussed in relation to depressive affect assessed with the CDI. [less ▲]

Purpose: The objective was to determine the psychometric properties and the clinical application of a new Quality of Life self-assessment questionnaire suitable for adolescents 13 to 18 years old: the “Inventaire Systémique de Qualité de vie pour Adolescents” (ISQV-A). Methods: This was a cross-sectional validation study. 171 French adolescents have completed the ISQV-A. Other tools were used: the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory for Children (STAIC), the Children’s Depression Inventory (CDI). Results: The internal consistency of the four indices of the ISQV-A (state, goal, rank and gap) is satisfactory. All scores have their own specificity. The data show the convergent validity, test-retest fidelity and applicability of the ISQV-A. Conclusions: The adequacy of this new tool seems evident to highlight the adolescent’s quality of life. We will also discuss its clinical relevance into a cognitive behavioural approach. [less ▲]

This study approaches the question of quality of life measure in paediatric oncology. The main aim is to compare the quality of life level of children (8-12 years) undergoing (T) and off (HT) oncological treatments by using the French and the Portuguese modular versions of the Child Quality of Life Systemic Inventory (QLSI-C©). The Portuguese sample consists of 26 children T and 14 HT while the Belgian sample includes 20 children T and 35 HT. Results demonstrate statistically significant differences between the T and HT groups, particularly for the French version of the QLSI-C©. They also give evidence of the influence of some clinical and sociodemographic variables on the global quality of life score, mainly for the Portuguese version of the QLSI-C©. In conclusion, findings demonstrate the clinical interest of French and Portuguese versions of the QLSI-C© and their capacity to distinguish children undergoing oncological treatments from children off these treatments.

This article discusses the measurement of quality of life for old people through the preliminary validation study (applicability, reliability and validity) of a questionnaire specifically designed for this population: the Quality of Life Systemic Inventory for old people (QLSI-65+©). This validation is based on a sample of 54 non-institutionalized adults aged 65 to 85 years. All completed a sociodemographic and medical questionnaire, the QLSI-65+©, the Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS) and the Satisfaction with Life Scale (SWLS). The results show a good applicability of the QLSI-65+©. The internal consistency of the indices (State, Goal, Rank and Gap) is very satisfactory. All indices are correlated each other to varying degrees (reliability). Correlations between State, Goal and Gap QLSI-65+© global scores and GDS and SWLS total scores are significant (convergent validity). Finally, State, Goal and Gap QLSI-65+© global scores of the sample are significantly better than those of 17 informal caregivers of people with dementia (validity in terms of know group differences).
