1. Partial Efficacy of Vipassana Mindfulness Approach in Alcohol-Dependent Persons

Abstract

Alcohol-dependent persons who drink to manage negative emotions are likely to become lifetime drinkers. The study aimed at assessing the effectiveness of Vipassana mindfulness on alcohol intake, depression, and empathetic responses at a rehabilitation center. Mixed methods were employed, with a battery of self-report instruments (depression, cognitive, and daily drinking) and a focus group interview. There were 23 alcohol-dependent males in the intervention group and 22 in the control group. Participants completed questionnaires one week before and one month after intervention, and a focus group was held with 15 intervention participants at one-month follow-up. The intervention consisted of 2 hours a day of sitting and walking with Vipassana mindfulness for 5 consecutive days. At pretest, intervention and control groups had similar scores on demographic, alcohol intake, and depression variables. When comparing pre- and posttest scores within each group, the intervention group had lower cognitive and total depression scores postintervention, but the difference was not significant. In the focus group, participants said they had no time to practice mindfulness regularly, which may have been a reason for only gaining partial benefits from Vipassana mindfulness. Additionally, participants’ previous mindfulness experiences may have limited the success of the mindfulness approach.

2. The Effects of Brain Base Learning on Academic Achievement and Attitude in Studying Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing of Nursing Students

Abstract

This quasi- experimental research aimed to study of brain based learning on academic achievement and attitudes in psychiatric mental health nursing. This experimental study, which was designed as pre and posttest control group model, was conducted in 2014 academic year at faculty of nursing in private University Bangkok Thailand. Sixty nursing students were randomly divided equal into each group. The experimental group was administered a brain-based learning approach, while the control group was administered a traditional teaching approach for 5 weeks. The data were obtained through the attitude questionnaires. The Cronbach’s alpha coefficient of the questionnaires was 0.93. The final exam scores were collected. The data were analyzed using dependent and paired t-test.
The results illustrated that 1. The final score and attitudes score of a control group and an experimental group were not statistically significant (t=0.46, p=0.65 and t=-1.39, p=0.17). 2. Attitude score of a control group at pretest was not statistically significant (t=-0.73, p=0.47). 3. Attitude score of an experimental group at posttest significantly higher than that of pretest (t=-3.43, p<.05). It was evidence that a study of brain based learning help to increase attitude for study in psychiatric mental health nursing. The researchers recommended using brain based learning as learning program for nursing students and provides directions for future research based on alternative methodologies.

The result of the objectives found 1) The patients with the chronic disease had more the different of personal data were the behavior using different local wisdom. It was found that patients with chronic diseases by age group education level and income are different. The behavior used of the local wisdom of health differences. The significance level of 0.05 and 2) The factors prediction behavior to use of the local wisdom of patients with chronic diseases found age, education level and the amount of time that patient themselves. The predict behavior using local wisdom. The statistical significance level of 0.05, which could predict is 6.6 percent by the first variable to predict is the age (β= -.160). The second is education level (β= .159). And the third is the time to know their patients (β=.103).
Suggestion: Should encourage knowledge management and promote to use the local wisdom of health using a participatory process. As an alternative to self-care in the symptoms slightly.
