The effectiveness of a motivational-targeted feedback message intervention on increasing physical activity in long-term maintenance cardiac rehabilitation patients

Metzger, Elise R. 12 August 2011 (has links)
The aim of the study was to determine the relative effectiveness of a motivational-targeted (MT) message intervention designed to increase physical activity (PA) in cardiac patients beginning a long-term maintenance cardiac rehabilitation (CR) program to enable them to meet recommended PA levels. Methods: Fifty two individuals (34 males, 18 females) volunteered for the study and were randomly assigned to either the Usual Care Group (UC), or the Motivational Message Group (MM). Participants in the MM group received, in addition to the usual long-term maintenance CR program, 12 –standard, MT newsletters at the beginning of each week during the intervention period. Thirty-three individuals (mean age: 61.4 ± 11.4 years) completed the study with viable data. PA was assessed for 12 weeks with the use of a Lifecorder PLUS accelerometer. Baseline and post measures of weight, body mass index (BMI), body fat percentage, resting heart rate and blood pressure measures, and fasting blood measures were completed on all subjects. Subjects also completed an exercise self-efficacy questionnaire and a stage of change of physical activity readiness questionnaire at these timeframes. Results: Independent sample t-tests indicated there were no significant differences between baseline characteristics between the UC group and MM group. Results indicated slight increases in the MM group in steps/day, and moderate-vigorous minutes/day, with slight decreases in resting heart rate, blood pressure, and blood lipid values compared to the UC group. Two-way repeated measures ANOVA tests determined there was a significant main effect for time for resting heart rate, however, there were no other significant differences between the two groups or within either group, showing no time by group interaction for any variables measured. Conclusions: MT messages may have the ability to increase PA levels and adherence in CR patients, however, more research is needed to determine the significant value of motivational-targeted messages for these individuals. / School of Physical Education, Sport, and Exercise Science

A test of two hypotheses concerning the effects of manifest anxiety on the learning of multidimensional stimulus discriminations

Smith, David William January 1971 (has links)
This thesis was designed as a partial test of two hypotheses concerning the effects of manifest anxiety on the learning of a concept formation task. The Taylor-Spence hypothesis has suggested that anxiety functions as a drive in the Hullian model relation drive to habit strength in a multiplicative manner. Taylor ahs devised the Manifest Anxiety Scale to measure this drive level. A review of the literature indicated inconsistencies in the results of studies dealing with complex human learning. Saltz has suggested an alternative hypothesis to account for the inconsistencies in the research results. The results of this study indicated that Saltz’ hypothesis was substantiated and is the more defensible of the two. An interpretation of the results, the limitations of this study, and suggestions for further research are discussed.

Energy commitments of women counselors in schools, colleges and agencies

Shanahan, John Edward January 1972 (has links)
The main purpose of this study was to compare energy commitments of counselors working in elementary and secondary schools, colleges or universities and agencies. The underlying assumption inherent in the comparisons is that counselors have similar goals but are differentiated by setting and type of clients with whom they work. No previous research was found comparing personal characteristics of counselors in the various settings and the need for studying them was evident.Secondary purposes were to examine variables of age and amount of graduate education as determining factors of counselors' energy commitments. Counselors at the masters level, masters plus level and doctoral level were compared. For age as a variable, energy commitments of younger counselors between the ages of 20 years and 39 years were contrasted with those of older counselors between the ages of 45 and 59.
