1. Dunn, Tim W. A test of associations among generalized attachment, interpersonal competence, relational self-construal and happiness among undergraduates.

Degree: PhD, Human Development and Family Studies, 2018, Texas Tech University

The present study examined the associations between generalized attachment (orientations toward interactions with others) and personal happiness. In addition, it assessed whether these associations were mediated by interpersonal competence domains (initiation, self-disclosure, support provision, negative assertion, conflict management), and relational self-construal. A sample of 1209 undergraduates at a southwestern university participated in the study. Respondents completed an anonymous online questionnaire packet which contained a measure of generalized attachment style, Interpersonal Competence Questionnaire, Relational-Interdependent Self-Construal Scale and Subjective Happiness Scale. A factor analysis of the attachment measure revealed only two attachment dimensions (avoidance, anxious-ambivalence). For each dimension, regression analysis indicated that the attachment-happiness associations were partially mediated by competence and construal. Two elements of competence (initiation, conflict) emerged as unique predictors of happiness, even in the context of each insecure attachment dimension. Discussion of the findings and directions for future research are offered. Advisors/Committee Members: Niehuis, Sylvia (committee member), Chae, Yoojin (committee member), Fitzpatrick, Jacki (Committee Chair).

2. Tang, Xiaohui. Investigating the complexity of childhood obesity within multilevel environments in a Hispanic sample using structural equation modeling.

Degree: Human Development and Family Studies, 2012, Texas Tech University

The trend of obesity among Hispanic children is impacted by multiple factors working jointly. The current study aimed to explore the associations among factors at different ecological levels with child’s anthropometric outcomes in a Hispanic sample. The sample consisted of 309 children (5-9 years) who were enrolled in the project Transformacion Para Salud (Transformation for Health), an 18-month community-based intervention project in West Texas. Baseline data were used for this study. Measured factors included: child daily sugar-sweetened beverage intake and fruit/vegetable intake, TV viewing time, parent’s nutrition knowledge, support for physical activity, family meal and fast food frequency, acculturation, and participation in food assistance program(s). The outcomes were child’s body mass index percentile, waist circumference, and body fat percentage. Effects of all these factors on anthropometric outcomes were tested by structural equation modeling. For all three anthropometric outcomes, the models fit the data adequately: CFI is 0.921-0.940 and RMSEA is 0.040-0.042. Child daily sugar-sweetened beverage was positively impacted by daily TV viewing and fast food frequency. Child fruit and vegetable intake was negatively related to fast food frequency and positively related to parent’s support physical activity and participation in food assistance programs. Parent’s nutrition knowledge had a negative effects on child weight status. Acculturation was positively associated with fast food frequency, parent’s nutrition knowledge, and physical activity support. The significant factors associated with overweight and obesity may provide a basis for future prevention and intervention strategies targeting Hispanic children.
