Self-concordance theory and the goal-striving reasons framework both measure the quality of people’s reasons for their goal pursuits. Both have provided substantial evidence for their predictive power for people’s well-being. However, it remains unclear which of the two goal-reason models is the better predictor for different forms of well-being. The paper analyses the distinct relationships of the two models in relation to hedonic well-being (Subjective Well-Being, Life Satisfaction, Affect Balance) and indicators of eudaimonic well-being (Basic Need Satisfaction, Purpose and Self-Acceptance). The findings are based on a cross-sectional, correlative research design based (N = 124). Using multiple regression analyses the results show that the goal-striving reasons framework is overall more strongly associated with hedonic and eudaimonic well-being. However, the differences for hedonic well-being as well as for self-acceptance and purpose are much larger than they are for the three basic needs of autonomy, com…
During 2019-20 a qualitative study of the learning experiences of BAME students at a post 92 university was carried out. Utilising focus groups, the study aimed to explore experiences of teaching and learning. The data uploaded to RADAR are the transcripts from the focus groups.
The data extracted from 69 papers that made up our meta-analysis.

There has been an increase in the number of UK university students disclosing mental health conditions in recent years. This dataset informed a paper that describes the evaluation of the Mind Tutor app, an artificial intelligence based wellbeing app specifically designed for first year undergraduate students, which included a chatbot function that guided students to relevant wellbeing content. The content of the app was developed based on data about mental health and wellbeing issues reported by students and focussed on anxiety, low mood, academic study, transition to university and relationships. Two randomised controlled evaluation studies were conducted with N = 177 and N = 240 first year undergraduate students from two UK universities (the second due to delays in development work and difficulties with recruitment in the first trial). The Mind Tutor had no significant impact on student wellbeing. The study suffered from poor recruitment and retention rates. However, further research is warranted to underst…
This paper will analyse the likeliness of being punished due to an accusation of male sexual deviance in Spain or England. In this vein, the paper includes primary sources involving doctors' role in these procedures. Regarding the legal treatment of sexual deviants, this paper will compare the data offered by the press respecting two case studies from each country. As a conclusion, British law proved to be more restrictive than the Spanish. Therefore, British male sexual deviants had fewer possibilities to avoid being judged and punished than the Spanish.
Background: Current alcohol product labelling tends to include ambiguous messages such as ‘drink responsibly’. Consumers who identify as responsible drinkers may not pay heed to health warning messages, believing that they are not the intended target.
Aims: We aimed to determine how responses to responsible drinking labels would differ from responses to positively and negatively framed health messages. We also explored if prototype perceptions would moderate the message impact.
Methods: A between groups, three arm (ambiguous, positive or negative messages) experiment recruited 465 participants. Outcomes were drinking intentions and label acceptability (novelty, believability, personal relevance, and potential to change behaviour). Measures of heavy and responsible drinker prototype perceptions were included for exploratory moderation analyses.
Results: Positive and negative messages were rated significantly more likely to change behaviour than ambiguous messages. There was also a moderation effect: partic…
Background: Cancer-related pain is a significant and growing problem for those living with and surviving cancer, requiring biopsychosocial (BPS) management independent to treatment of underlying disease. Best practice pain management has been established in the field of chronic non-cancer pain (CNCP), starting with education that is grounded in pain science. Consideration of this approach for cancer-related pain management is scarce, yet there is strong rationale for its use. The aim of this study was to explore the use of pain science in explaining cancer-related pain to patients through education, facilitating communication of a BPS phenomenon.
Methods: An exploratory narrative review was used to unveil a practice in its inception and deepen understanding of the field, capturing all available literature defined by inclusion of target concepts of pain education. A descriptive synthesis of the findings was interpreted and critiqued in the discussion. Methodological quality was included to assess the impact on…
