Stress is a frequent problem reported by women, impacting the strategies they use to deal with problems in daily life and their ability to recover from this critical phenomenon. <strong>Objective: </strong>The objective of this study was to evaluate the relationship between stress levels, knowledge about COVID -19, ways of coping, and resilience in women. <strong>Method:</strong> A non-experimental, cross-sectional, and correlational study was carried out in a group of 386 Mexican women through a format that was distributed on social networks. <strong>Results:</strong> The data suggest that the higher the level of knowledge about COVID-19, the greater the perceived stress. High stress is positively and statistically significantly related to coping style, <em>denial</em> (r = .245; q = .20) and <em>cognitive-reflective analysis</em> <em>(r =</em> .303; <em>q=</em> .21). Low levels of stress are negatively and statistically significantly associated with a weak effect size with factors like <em>social competence</em> (<em>r=</em> -.198; <em>q=</em> .11) and <em>family support</em> (<em>r = </em>-. 227;<em> q =</em> .16). <strong>Conclusion:</strong> Stress affects women considerably due to work overload and interpersonal factors. This study offers the possibility of knowing the emotional state of women in times of COVID-19.</p> Ana Leticia Becerra Gálvez, Alejandro Pérez-Ortiz, Yuma Yoaly Pérez-Bautista, Isaías Vicente Lugo-González, América Genevra Franco-Moreno, Erick Alberto Medina-Jiménez ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://www.revistainteracciones.com/index.php/rin/article/view/249 Wed, 02 Mar 2022 15:10:26 -0500 Anxiety and adaptation to pandemic in Mexico: A cross-sectional study https://www.revistainteracciones.com/index.php/rin/article/view/242 <p><strong><span lang="EN-US">Background:</span></strong><span lang="EN-US">&nbsp;An aspect that becomes relevant in the current pandemic situation is the probable psychological effects that it may cause. A series of studies have shown that these kinds of critical situations have effects such as the development of anxiety processes in people. Hence the interest in knowing how health habits help to adapt to the pandemic and mediate anxiety processes.&nbsp;<strong>Objective:</strong>&nbsp;to analyze the relationship of healthy habits with anxiety and adaptation to confinement.&nbsp;<strong>Method:</strong>&nbsp;7,439 people from Mexico participated, with ages between 18 and 80 years (<em>M</em>&nbsp;= 36.99,&nbsp;<em>SD</em>&nbsp;= 14.00).&nbsp;<strong>Results:</strong>&nbsp;We found that sleep (58%), eating (29%) and physical activity (52%) habits have been affected by confinement; 11.5% of the participants showed indicators of anxiety. The 9% of participants adapted poorly to confinement. The variable that best predicts adaptation to confinement is anxiety, followed by food, sleep, and physical activity. Those who are most affected by habits are young people and women by gender.&nbsp;<strong>Conclusions:</strong>&nbsp;The pandemic has led to changes in negative habits in a large sector of the population, which are now considered risk factors for physical and mental health. In addition, habits are associated with anxiety and adaptation, so it is necessary to provide society with strategies that allow proper management of habits, which can prevent the manifestation of anxiety.</span></p> Javier Álvarez Bermúdez, Cecilia Meza Peña ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://www.revistainteracciones.com/index.php/rin/article/view/242 Sun, 30 Jan 2022 00:00:00 -0500 Theory of Planned Behavior in predicting condom use in Latin-American Women https://www.revistainteracciones.com/index.php/rin/article/view/254 <p><strong><span lang="EN-US">Background:</span></strong><span lang="EN-US">&nbsp;The theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) is used to predict condom use. The present study assessed the causal relationships of the TPB in a cultural context different from the one that was proposed.</span><strong><span lang="EN-US"> Objective: </span></strong><span lang="EN-US">To assess the causal relationships among the variables proposed by the TCP to determine if they predict consistent condom use in two groups of Latina women and to identify the inter-group similarities in both groups and the discrepancies with what the model proposes for the North American population.</span><span lang="EN-US">&nbsp;</span><strong><span lang="EN-US">Method:&nbsp;</span></strong><span lang="EN-US">A set of variables were evaluated in two samples of Latina women (Mexican and Argentine): consistency of condom use, intention to use condoms in the next sexual encounter, the subjective norm of friends and parents, attitudes towards condoms, and perceived behavioral control to use condoms. We used the Linear regression analysis.&nbsp;</span><strong><span lang="EN-US">Results:&nbsp;</span></strong><span lang="EN-US">Intention to use condoms was found to be the best predictor of condom use. Subjective norm was more important than attitudes; although the latter variable was not configured as a predictor in Argentine women.</span><strong><span lang="EN-US">&nbsp;Conclusion:&nbsp;</span></strong><span lang="EN-US">The associations between the CTP variables and the predictive values of the variables may change according to the cultural group evaluated; perceived behavioral control, in both samples, was not a direct predictor of condom use behavior, but it was a predictor of intention to use condoms. In addition, we discussed the relevance of the variables proposed by the TCP about the cultural context of Latinos and the critical use of the model in populations other than North America.</span></p> David Javier Enríquez-Negrete, Ricardo Sánchez-Medina, Susana Xóchitl Bárcena-Gaona, Itzel Guadalupe Chávez-Santos ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://www.revistainteracciones.com/index.php/rin/article/view/254 Tue, 19 Apr 2022 17:31:13 -0400 Contemporaneous Emotion Regulation Theoretical Models: A Systematic Review https://www.revistainteracciones.com/index.php/rin/article/view/237 <p><strong><span lang="EN-US">Background:&nbsp;</span></strong><span lang="EN-US">Emotions and their regulation are a phenomenon present in everyday life. Despite its relevance and growing interest, a consensual and univocal definition has not yet been reached.&nbsp;<strong>Objective:</strong>&nbsp;This paper aims to review contemporary theoretical models of emotion regulation, looking for agreements and divergences between authors. It seeks to identify the main processes considered when working with emotional dysregulation.&nbsp;<strong>Method:</strong>&nbsp;Our team conducted a systematic review in the form of a narrative synthesis following the guidelines of the PRISMA statement. The database used were SCOPUS, PUBMED, and&nbsp;<span class="SpellE">Dialnet</span>. We included articles published between 2018 and 2020, which have been peer-reviewed in indexed scientific journals, whose central theme was the theoretical presentation of the construct of emotional regulation. We excluded articles that conceptualized only one dimension of the construct focused on specific populations and empirical studies without a theoretical conceptualization of the construct. The information was systematized in a table identifying authors' information, country of institutional affiliation, main characteristics of the given definition of emotion regulation, regulation skills mentioned, and underlying theoretical frameworks.&nbsp;<strong>Results:&nbsp;</strong>We identified ten different theoretical frameworks that propose models of emotion regulation. The main components found in the definition were the complexity of the construct, goal orientation, intra- or interpersonal regulation, the proposal of moderators, and its voluntary character.&nbsp;<strong>Discussion:</strong>&nbsp;There is a consensus on the use of emotion regulation strategies to adapt to environmental demands, achieve goals and increase well-being. We identify that people's learning history is an important factor in the development of emotional regulation skills. In addition, context and personality traits are proposed as moderators of the therapeutic efficacy of interventions focused on emotional regulation. Further studies along these lines would favor the implementation of preventive interventions and the personalization of treatments.</span></p> Camila Florencia Cremades, Cristian Javier Garay, Martín Juan Etchevers, Roberto Muiños, Graciela Mónica Peker, Juan Martín Gómez Penedo ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://www.revistainteracciones.com/index.php/rin/article/view/237 Wed, 23 Mar 2022 11:17:56 -0400
