1. Legerski, John-Paul. JUST AMONG FRIENDS: ASSOCIATIONS AMONG EMOTIONAL EXPRESSION, FRIEND BEHAVIOR, AND FRIENDSHIP QUALITY IN EARLY ADOLESCENT SAME-SEX FRIEND DYADS.

Degree: PhD, Clinical Child Psychology, 2010, University of Kansas

To better understand emotional expression within the context of close same-sex friendships of young adolescents, this study examined emotional expressivity among 116 adolescents (58 friend dyads) in Grades 7-8 (12-14 years of age) utilizing a multi-method design that incorporates both observations and multi-informant ratings of emotional expression. A series of actor-partner interdependent models revealed similarities among close friends on parent-reported and observed emotional expressivity, although some of these findings were gender specific and varied according to how emotional expression was measured. Measures of friendship quality appeared unrelated to indicators of emotional expressivity. Loglinear analyses indicated that when friends responded to participants' emotional expressions supportively, rather than dismissively, participants were more likely to disclose emotions in subsequent utterances. Research and clinical implications for early adolescent emotional development are discussed. Advisors/Committee Members: Biggs, Bridget K (advisor), Greenhoot, Andrea F (advisor), Hall, Jeffery A.

2. Cushing, Christopher. Validation of a Measure of Weight-Related Quality of Life in a Community Sample of Normal Weight, Overweight, and Obese 4th and 5th Grade Students.

Degree: PhD, Clinical Child Psychology, 2012, University of Kansas

The current study extends the quality of life assessment literature by examining the reliability and validity of a disease-specific instrument in a sample of nontreatment-seeking school aged children with overweight and obesity. Participants were 4th and 5th grade students recruited from six Kansas elementary schools. Results of the current study were consistent with the initial evaluation of Sizing Me Up and revealed a five-factor first-order factor structure for the 22-item measure with one second-order factor representing a total score. Consistent with study hypotheses and the available literature, factorial invariance could not be established between a sample of children with healthy weight (n = 168) and the primary sample (n = 134) of children with overweight and obesity. Good evidence for convergent validity within Sizing Me Up factors as well as with similar constructs measured by a general quality of life instrument were revealed. The Sizing Me Up also demonstrated evidence for criterion-related validity with BMI%ile. The current study also advances the quality of life assessment literature by empirically testing the assumption that disease-specific measures assess different constructs than general quality of life measures. Study hypotheses that Sizing Me Up assesses weight-related quality of life constructs were supported. Finally, reliabilities for the five-factor Sizing Me Up factor structure were acceptable for research purposes. However, the scales are unacceptable for clinical use and only the total score should be used with individual children. Advisors/Committee Members: Steele, Ric G. (advisor), Roberts, Michael C.

3. Van Allen, Jason. A Longitudinal Examination of Outcome Expectancy Constructs and their Role in Type 1 Diabetes in Youths.

Degree: PhD, Clinical Child Psychology, 2013, University of Kansas

This study was designed to test the associations between outcome expectancy constructs (i.e., hope, optimism, and self-efficacy) and health outcomes (i.e., HbA1c and self-monitored blood glucose [SMBG]) among youths with type 1 diabetes mellitus. It was hypothesized that hope, optimism, and self-efficacy would be significantly associated with each construct in longitudinal models, such that outcome expectancy constructs would statistically predict change in health outcomes approximately 6-months after baseline assessments. 110 participants (mean age = 13.6) completed the Children's Hope Scale (CHS), the Life Orientation Test-Revised (LOT-R; optimism measure), and the Self-Efficacy for Diabetes Scale (SED), and their HbA1c and SMBG data were obtained from chart review during their clinic visit. 81 of the original 110 participants completed the assessment battery at time 2 (6-month follow-up). Confirmatory factor analyses were conducted on all measures, and the results confirmed the factor structure of the CHS and the LOT-R, but did not support the factor structure of a three-factor model, or more parsimonious one-factor model. The limited follow-up data restricted statistical power for tests of longitudinal associations using structural equation modeling (SEM), but a cross-sectional model using baseline data indicated a significant association between the CHS and HbA1c. Two baseline mediation models were also significant, suggesting that both the CHS and the LOT-R have significant indirect associations with HbA1c through a mediator, SMBG. Post-hoc analyses tested longitudinal associations using hierarchical multiple regression (which requires less statistical power than SEM analyses), and these analyses supported significant associations between change in CHS scores and change in HbA1c and SMBG data. This study provides further evidence of significant associations between hope and health outcomes in youths. Clinicians and researchers may benefit from incorporating hope in clinical assessments, and testing the benefit of hope-based intervention efforts in future clinical studies.
