In daily life we usually scan the environment in terms of critical events over non-critical events. The ability to detect and maintain attention for extended periods of time is referred as sustained attention or vigilance. The present study examined the effect of visual warning cue on sustained attention task performance. Twenty undergraduate students of Banaras Hindu University were randomly assigned into two different experimental conditions. A 2 (warning cue: No warning, warning cue) x 4 (Block: 10 minute each) mixed factorial design with repeated measure on last factor was used. Super Lab software was used to design and conduct successive go/no-go visual sustained attention task. Reaction time, correct detection and incorrect detection were recorded as dependent measures. Findings revealed that participants took less time to respond, when warning cue was preceded the target. However, rate of correct detection and false alarm scores did not differ significantly under both conditions. Real world application of this research includes traffic system, system that requires operators to sustain attention to complex tasks while receiving and responding to warning.

Military families are faced with stressors that are unique in nature and very different from those that are faced by civilian couples, such as extended separation, trauma witnessed during deployment, reintegration into the family after separation, changing roles, frequent transfers, role transitions and the need to adapt to all these changes. This may impact the marital adjustment and well-being of military wives. Mindfulness can help the military wives become aware of the environmental demands, be mindful in their communications with their spouse and help tackle the various issues that come in conjunction with being a part of this lifestyle. The main aim of the present study is to understand the relationship between dispositional mindfulness, marital adjustment and psychological well-being with regard to military wives. 50 military wives whose husbands are currently posted in field areas were studied. The Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire, The Psychological Well Being Scale, and The Marital Adjustment Inventory were administered. The data was analyzed using correlation and regression analysis. The results indicate the existence of a positive relationship between mindfulness, marital adjustment and the overall psychological well-being with dispositional mindfulness significantly predicting marital adjustment and psychological well-being.

The purpose of the present study was to examine the role of family relationship in child rearing of drug addiction afflicted and normal families. Sample for the present investigation was comprised of 270 students (7th to 10th classes) from Govt. High schools of rural areas (Mandoli, Harpalpur and Ajrawar) of Patiala district. Sample covered children who are from drug addiction afflicted families (N=135) as GrI and children from non-drug addiction afflicted families or normal families (N=135) as GrII. Family relationship inventory (Sherry & Sinha, 1987) was used to measure three types of perceived parental attitudes, namely acceptance, concentration and avoidance. It was hypothesized that Family relationship in drug addiction afflicted families would be characterized by low concentration, low acceptance and high avoidance rejection as compared to normal families. T-ratio was used to analyze the data. The results of t-ratio revealed that Family relationships in GrI, i.e., students belonging to drug addiction afflicted families were characterized by significant higher attitude of avoidance that is abuse and rejection of children. Family relationships in GrII (normal families) were characterized by significant higher acceptance and concentration and very low on avoidance attitude toward children. Implications of the findings have been discussed.

Given all the debates about how children should be taught, it may come as a surprise to learn that students spend less than 15% of their time in school. While there's no doubt that school is important, a clutch of recent studies reminds us that parents are even more so. A study published by researchers at North Carolina State University, Brigham Young University and the University of California-Irvine, for example, finds that parental involvement checking homework, attending school meetings and events, discussing school activities at home has a more powerful influence on students' academic performance than anything about the school the students attend. Another study, published in the Review of Economics and Statistics, reports that the effort put forth by parents (reading stories aloud, meeting with teachers) has a bigger impact on their children's educational achievement than the effort expended by either teachers or the students themselves. And a third study concludes that schools would have to increase their spending by more than $1,000 per pupil in order to achieve the same results that are gained with parental involvement. So parents matter a point made clear by decades of research showing that a major part of the academic advantage held by children from affluent families comes from the “concerted cultivation of children” as compared to the more laissez-faire style of parenting common in working-class families. Children who hear talk about counting and numbers at home start school with much more extensive mathematical knowledge, report researchers from the University of Chicago knowledge that predicts future achievement in the subject. Psychologist Susan Levine, who led the study on number words, has also found that the amount of talk young children hear about the spatial properties of the physical world how big or small or round or sharp objects are predicts kids' problem-solving abilities as they prepare to enter kindergarten.

Health and emotions have a greater impact over the aspects of well-being. In this respect, it is interesting to focus on Physical mental and social Health strategies and its association with well-being of an individual. There are many health related issues which are expected to play greater role in adaptive functioning of a person. Several other health related challenges are the plausible consequence of maladaptive emotion regulation that leads to emotional and behavioural disturbances. Studies reveal that health and emotions regulation of well-being may influence help seeking behaviour, symptoms report, medical adherence and somatic health of the people. The way people regulate their health is shaped by bio-psychosocial and cultural processes. Gender differences have also been reported in emotional regulation strategies as studies indicate that women are comparatively better than men in attending, valuing, and expressing emotions in daily life. Other findings have reported that styles of emotional expression are related with health as individuals who repress their emotional symptoms exhibit poor health outcomes. While the Individuals, who feel emotions with greater intensity, differentiate among them and regulate them properly, show better health outcomes in their health related issues.

The upside of peer pressure on adolescent behavior

Rajesh G. Meshram, Department of Psychology, Jijamata College, Nandurbar, Maharashtra

Show Preview
Peer pressure is influence on a peer group or an individual that encourages others to change their attitudes, values, or behaviors to conform to those of the influencing group or individual. The need to follow the crowd and do what majority of us are doing forces us to do things or take up activities which we wouldn't otherwise. This is especially true for teenagers who are easily influenced by their surroundings or people they socialize with. However, recent studies have shown that peer pressure might have an upside to it; that in certain environments peer pressure can inspire an individual to be a more focused and determined individual (Tejaswini & Romate 2015).Peer pressure has become a big part of the adolescent lives. Whether they are at school or work, peer pressure can affect their output and even impact their general outlook on life. All of us, at some point in our lives, have had to deal with peer pressure. The need to follow the crowd and do what majority of us are doing forces us to do things or take up activities which we wouldn't otherwise. This is especially true for adolescents who are easily influenced by their surroundings or people they socialize with. Parenting styles can also affect peer influence. Authoritative parenting encourages adolescents to be less susceptible to peer influence specifically in domains in which peers are engaging in unacceptable behaviors, but more susceptible to peer influence in domains that are approved by adults (Mounts and Steinberg 1995). However, recent studies have shown that peer pressure might have an upside to it; that in certain environments peer pressure can inspire an individual to be a more focused and determined individual.

The goal of Positive Education is to guide young people towards positive functioning and flourishing by dovetailing evidence-based positive psychology interventions with best-practice teaching methods. The delivery of Positive Education programs in schools can equip both students and teachers with the skills and confidence to better manage their emotions, develop healthy thinking styles, form a positive self-identity, and foster healthy relationships. Positive Education provides a new educational paradigm which prepares young people to thrive despite the complex life challenges they face in contemporary times. Positive Education, the embedding of positive psychology research findings into education best practices has also been shown to reduce or even prevent depression and anxiety, increase enjoyment and engagement in school, improve curiosity and love of learning, and enhance social skills like empathy, cooperation, assertiveness, and self-control, all of which are correlated with increased academic achievement. It is also the incorporation of the science of positive psychology into the life and work of schools. While it may sound daunting to educators to hear of something else that schools should be doing, Positive Education benefits teachers personally, and then benefits them again by making it easier to get students to engage with and persist in the work they need to master academic material.

Show Preview
The departure point of this paper is the definition of materialism as a value as well as a trait. Materialism is seen in a negative light in the literature available on the topic. It is defined as the tendency to assign greater value to material goods and comforts as compared to the spiritual values. It has been a fodder for studies in various disciplines ranging from philosophy, sociology, political science, and psychology. This paper attempts to investigate the relationships between materialism and life-satisfaction, self esteem. To this end, the data was collected from a sample of teachers (N=400) from colleges and universities in Chandigarh. The statistical analysis was conducted using SPSS. The techniques of Pearson Product Moment Correlation and student's t-test were employed. It was observed that people's endorsement of a materialistic lifestyle negatively correlates with their life satisfaction and self esteem. The findings of the study reveal that gender differences exist when it comes to expression of materialism as a trait comprising envy, non generosity and possessiveness. The gender differences were explored on all the variables. Males scored higher on materialism, females scored higher on self esteem and no gender differences were found on life satisfaction.

The behavior of the parents has direct effect on the children's psychological growth and behaviour. Parents are varied in their rearing practice and frequently unpredictable. Sometimes their interactions with children are tinged with odd combinations of beliefs such as personal prejudice, emotional regards, tradition and rule of thumb procedures. According to psychoanalytic theory social value and controls are largely interiorized on the basis of early parent-child interactions. Parents rear their children in the same way that they were reared by their parents. The reward with affection and privilege similar behaviours, punish with rejection and threats the same kind of misbehaviours for which they were chastised. This cultural drift is characteristically in the direction of the prevailing value of the general community with its gradual assimilation of new ideas, technology inventions and the shifting art. When the parents do not deal with their children in a proper way the children may develop internalizing and externalizing disorders, here we focus on externalizing disorders which includes disorders with behaviour that are disruptive and often aggressive. A high level of externalizing behaviour is an obvious indication of a potential problem. Children who do not pay attention, seems exceptionally active, behave aggressively, break rules and cause significant harm to other people and their property are need special concern and proper care of their parents and caretakers. The aim of the current study was to focus on how parental counselling can be helpful in dealing with externalizing behaviour of the child. So parents need special training and counselling to handle such type of children.

Value education is the process by which people give values to others. It can be an activity that can take place in any organization during which people are assisted by others, who may be older, in a position of authority or are more experienced, to make explicit those values underlying their own behavior, to assess the effectiveness of these values and associated behavior for their own and others' long term well-being and to reflect on and acquire other values and behavior which they recognize as being more effective for long term well-being of self and others. There is a difference between literacy and education. Values education can take place at home, as well as in schools, colleges, universities, jails and voluntary youth organizations. There are two main approaches to values education; some see it as inculcating or transmitting a set of values which often come from societal or religious rules or cultural ethics while others see it as a type of Socratic dialogue (Bergmark, 2009) where people are gradually brought to their own realization of what are good behaviors for themselves and their community. Youth power is the driving force of a nation; if it moves in right direction. But now a day youth is adversely diverted through different immoral activities which does not only influence the present Indian society but also it stimulates the future generation of our civilization. Therefore, it is imperative to find out the solution of this crucial problem to establish India in the world of peace and harmony that is very much depends over the hand of youth generation.

Positive school climate and positive education: Impact on students well-being
Page 865-866
Vasant Namdeo Borkar Department of Psychology, Nowrosjee Wadia College, Pune, Maharashtra

Show Preview
School climate has often been described as the “quality and character of school life”, including both social and physical aspects of the school, that can positively promote behavior, school achievement, and the social and emotional development of students. Positive education has been defined as "education for both traditional skills and for happiness" (Seligman et al., 2009). A broader and more useful definition is "applied positive psychology in education". Positive psychology itself has been defined as an umbrella term encompassing theory and research in relation to what makes life worth living (Noble & McGrath, 2008). Positive psychology is extremely relevant to the school setting to assist in the understanding and development of high levels of psychological wellbeing in students, staff and school. Researchers have found that a positive school climate can help solve a lot of problems. Studies find that it decreases absenteeism, suspensions, and bullying, and increases students' academic achievement, motivation to learn, and psychological well-being. It can even mitigate the negative effects of self-criticism and socioeconomic status on academic success. In addition, working in this kind of climate lessens teacher burnout while increasing retention. The education policy framers in India need to pay heed to positive education, which is being successfully applied in progressive educational institutions of the world.
