Does Practicing Only Yoga Asanas Impact Executive Functioning, Emotion Regulation, and Emotional Well-Being Among College Students with Anxiety and Depression? An Exploratory Study in India

By 1: Aayushi Shah , Garima Rajan

Page No : 11-23

Abstract
The current study aimed to document the psychological benefits (if any) of hatha yoga on emotion regulation, emotional well-being and executive functioning in college students with depression and anxiety disorders. 83 participants (31 Males and 52 Females), 19 in Clinical Experimental (yoga practitioners with anxiety and depression), 21 in Clinical Control (non-yoga practitioners with anxiety and depression), 19 in NonClinical Experimental (yoga practitioners without anxiety and depression) and 24 in Non-Clinical Control (non-yoga practitioners of yoga without anxiety and depression) were recruited in the present study. Participants were assessed on emotional regulation, emotional well-being and executive functioning. The one-way ANOVA analysis on the four groups for different variables showed no significant differences. The results could be because practicing yoga asanas only as a fitness regime do not suffice to bring about changes in psychological processes as Hatha yoga focuses only on physical asanas (Csala et al., 2021). Conclusively, an inclusive approach of yoga, meditation and positive practices are important to bring about affective changes in participants’ emotional well-being and emotion regulation (Bhide et al., 2021).

Working and Non-Working Women: Fashion Involvement in Relation to Buying Behaviour

By 1: Sonali De , Sharmistha Sadhukhan

Page No : 25-32

Abstract
In the present study an attempt has been made to find out the relationship of fashion involvement with two types of buying behaviour namely, compulsive and impulsive buying in working and non-working married women. Data were collected from married female participants of 25-60 years of age having at least one child. On the basis of monthly earning three groups were formed, namely, high salaried group (WWH), low salaried group (WWL) and housewife group (WWN) with monthly pocket money. Eighty participants were recruited in each group. Results indicate that in each of the three groups both compulsive and impulsive buying behaviours were positively correlated with fashion involvement. Also, participants of the three groups with high fashion involvement (HFI) were found to be significantly higher in compulsive buying as well as in impulsive buying than those with low fashion involvement (LFI).

Retirement’s Impact on Quality of Life and Purpose in Life

By 1: Avni Agarwal , Rajni Sahni , Aishi Roychowdhury

Page No : 33-43

Abstract
A study on participants in pre-and post-retirement phases was taken up to understand their quality of life (QoL) and purpose in life (PIL). A relationship between the two was also seen. A survey questionnaire was used with a modified Purpose in Life scale (Boyle et al., 2009) and CASP-19 (Hyde et al., 2003) for measuring PIL and QoL respectively. The sample taken comprised of participants who were about to retire (n=33) and participants who had already retired (n=33), with a total sample size of 66, between the ages of 55 to 70. A comparison of means and Pearson’s product correlation methods were used for data analysis. There was a positive correlation found between QoL and PIL (r=.594, p<0.01). Thus, it was concluded that PIL and QoL are positively correlated, but there seemed to be no immediate effect of retirement on them.

Is Unconditional Self-acceptance an Antidote to Self-esteem? A Study in India

By 1: Rooplekha Khuntia , Suchismita Pramanik

Page No : 45-52

Abstract
The relationship between self-esteem and self-acceptance is a debated topic. Although a few studies have investigated this issue, the findings remain inconclusive. The aim of this study is to examine the effect of unconditional self-acceptance on self-esteem within the Indian context. For this purpose, a total of 104 participants (55-female, 49- male, Mage- 27.13 years) were included in this study using a convenient sampling technique. The present study used a correlational research design and regression analysis. The Pearson correlation coefficient revealed a statistically significant positive relationship between the two constructs (r= .44). Furthermore, the regression analysis indicated that unconditional self-acceptance exerts a significant influence on selfesteem (R2 = .19, β= .17 ± .035). The present study makes a valuable contribution to the existing body of literature, providing new insights into the relationship between unconditional self-acceptance and self-esteem, thereby aiding readers in achieving a more definitive understanding of this association.

Neurocognitive Profile of Individuals having Depression with Suicidal Ideation

By 1: Surabhi Ghosh , Susmita Halder

Page No : 53-63

Abstract
Depression is characterized by a persistent state of sadness and disinterest in activities that one would normally find enjoyable, as well as an inability to function on a daily basis for at least two weeks. Reducing the overall number of suicide deaths and intentional self-harm incidents requires early detection of depression. Depression is frequently caused by suicide. Depression and suicidal thoughts have been found to be highly correlated. The purpose of the current study is to comprehend the neurocognitive profile of depressed individuals who have considered suicide. This cross-sectional study included 30 participants of both genders who were between the ages of 20 and 50. Further assessments of cognitive flexibility were conducted using tests for domains such as working memory, inhibition, set shifting, processing speed, and attention. Overall, it can be concluded that while phonemic fluency, inhibition, and set shifting have been found to have an impact, processing speed, attention, working memory, and semantic fluency are all compromised in depression associated with suicidal ideation. We can draw the conclusion that depression is a significant health problem that must not be disregarded because it is a key indicator of suicide and has been shown to reduce engagement in day-to-day activities, both of which can result in a reduced quality of life.

Attachment Patterns, Dispositional Forgiveness, and Perceived Social-Support among Emerging Adults

By 1: Krishnapriya K.V , Bindu P. Nair

Page No : 73-81

Abstract
The present study examined the relationship among attachment patterns, dispositional forgiveness, and perceived social support of emerging adults and probed into whether there existed any difference, in terms of gender or relationship status, in their attachment patterns. The participants (N=201) aged 18-25 years, were recruited on-line and completed the Revised Adult Attachment Scale: close relationship version (RAAS), Trait Forgiveness Scale (TFS), and the Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support Scale (MSPSS). Data analyses using non-parametric tests revealed significant positive relationship among attachment patterns barring anxious attachment, to dispositional forgiveness and perceived social support of young adults. Anxious attachment was negatively correlated with perceived social support and had no relationship to dispositional forgiveness. No significant gender difference or relationship status difference in adult attachment patterns were observed. The intricacies in attachment patterns, dispositional forgiveness, and perceived social support and how it affects the interpersonal interactions of young adults are highlighted.

Retelling of Indian Mythological Stories Through Gender and Multi-Cultural Perspective and Analysis of Retelling

By 1: Amita Uday Hardikar , Sadhana Natu

Page No : 83-92

Abstract
The research delves into exploring Indian mythology through gender and multicultural perspectives, employing a multidisciplinary approach to analyse contemporary retellings of myths. It evaluates how these retellings reinterpret traditional narratives, characters, and themes from diverse cultural and gender viewpoints. Data collection involves secondary analysis of literary works and primary data through interviews, using a purposive sampling method. The study aims to uncover sociocultural, psychological, and ideological implications within these retellings. By examining diverse perspectives, the research argues that such reimaginations enrich cultural heritage and foster a more inclusive society. This exploration serves as a springboard for further discussions on storytelling’s significance in shaping societal norms. In conclusion, analysing retellings of Indian mythology through gender and multicultural lenses challenges traditional narratives, fostering inclusivity, and shaping a progressive understanding of our shared cultural heritage.

By 1: Sachika S Bharadwaj , Archana Bhat Kallahalla

Page No : 93-100

Abstract
The study investigated the relationship between pet attachment, empathy and mindful self-care in young adult owners of pet dogs (n=226, 151 female) aged 18-45 years. The Lexington Attachment to Pets Scale (LAPS), Toronto Empathy Questionnaire (TEQ) and Mindful Self-Care Scale (MSCS-Brief) were used. Results showed that while women have significantly higher pet attachment and empathy, there were no gender differences in mindful self-care. In terms of magnitude of correlation, the correlation between pet attachment and empathy is higher in men than in women, and the correlation between empathy and mindful self-care was found to be significantly higher in women than in men. The relationship between pet attachment and mindful self-care is found to be similar in men and women. Further research is needed to study the potential of a causal relationship between pet attachment and the development of empathy and self-care practices, particularly in the Indian context.

By 1: Sobiya Khan , S Reshma Jamal , Zainab Khan

Page No : 101-114

Abstract
This article explores the co-occurring conditions associated with low self-esteem in individuals with autism spectrum disorders. The social and communication impairments common in autism may hinder the formation of social identity and developmental processes. The study reveals that depression is a prevalent cooccurring symptom, identified in 4 out of 12 selected articles. Other associated symptoms include internalizing and externalizing issues, aggression, helplessness, stress, damaged personal identity, low sense of power, conduct problems, anxiety, low happiness levels, hyperactivity, behavioral disorders, and suicidal thoughts. The findings highlight the significance of self-esteem in the mental health of individuals with autism. The conclusion suggests that developing a strong social identity may contribute to psychological well-being in autism, emphasizing the need for therapists to identify the root causes of low self-esteem for targeted treatment. The article underscores the relevance of self-esteem concepts in the autistic population, opening avenues for therapeutic intervention.

By 1: Sakshi Goel , Dr. Ravikesh Tripathi

Page No : 115-124

Abstract
In the present study, we examined the effect of sex on cognitive abilities among young adults. Our total sample was comprised of 64 participants (33 females). Males and females were matched with respect to age and years of education. Each participant underwent a detailed neuropsychological assessment, including assessment of attention, executive functions, fluency, verbal and visuospatial memory. Results revealed that females exhibited superior performance in verbal domain such as learning, immediate memory, and fruit fluency. Additionally, a noteworthy trend was observed indicating females’ enhanced performance on verbal delayed recall, animal and vegetable fluency. Contrastingly, no discernible gender-based effects were identified in relation to executive functions, working memory, or visuospatial ability. It is pertinent to note that our findings did not conclusively support male superiority in the visuospatial or verbal domains. In conclusion, the present study provides valuable insights into sex-related differences in cognitive abilities among young adults. Nonetheless, further investigations employing larger sample sizes across diverse age groups are imperative to validate and extend these findings.

Psychological Repercussions/Challenges of Incarcerated Men and their Adaptive Strategies

By 1: Jeyanthi. M

Page No : 125-133

Abstract
Prisons are environments that are more likely to contain socially ostracized people. The fundamental premise of prisons is to take away or limit freedom. The act of being sent to prison is hazardous or traumatic in the first place; then there is the suffering, loss of family, separation, identity confusion, etc. The psychological repercussions of imprisonment are the primary subject of this paper and it focuses on loss of identity and diminished sense of self, deprivation of liberty, privacy, independence, social withdrawal, isolation, and idleness. It gives a brief description of how conviction impacts children and their families and how, in a single night, their entire life falls apart. Next, it demonstrates how self-reconstruction occurs via adaptability and the reformation process. They cope/adapt to the environment by themselves, with the support of others as co-inmates, staff, family, and friends. Both the intrapersonal and interpersonal factors promote transformation which is a significant factor in a prisoner’s capacity to adapt to his circumstances and reintegration into society.

Evolution of Fashion Across Gender in Brief and its Psychological Impacts

By 1: Shreeya Panda , Sadhana Natu

Page No : 147-155

Abstract
Our lives are dependent on fashion that works as a self-esteem booster for both men and women. Apart from the simple dress, it gives people the ability to create distinctive identities in the society, glorifying individual characteristics and lifestyles. This research dives into the dynamic changes in fashion from historical times and its psychological influences on the society. The study uses a qualitative approach, where the objectives are to study the historical context of gender representation in clothing brands and analyse individual preferences in gender-neutral fashion. Media analysis and in-depth interviews are the main methods used for this study. The results show an old trend where fashion was based on gender roles, although the lines between men’s and women’s fashion has been drawn. However, the society images live on, and people who do not conform to conventional dress standards are stigmatised. The study therefore promotes a conversation that includes the fashion industry and society to defy norms and adopt more gender identities.

Page No : 157-164

Abstract
As people with disability participate in the abled world, they are at a clear disadvantage as there is an apparent gap in resources. This is evident at the intersection of disability and sexuality. They are viewed as asexual beings and denied basic rights when dependent on society and care-givers. We aim to study the available resources and ways of making it stakeholder friendly. We aim to provide a framework for creation of resources through qualitative data analysis. The purpose is to investigate ground reality and develop understanding and strengthen policy making, infrastructure and working on social conditioning in the Indian context. Analysis of the depiction of disability, sexuality and inclusivity in select films to view issues of representation is done. In-depth interviews with experts have provided insights about the complexity of the subject. In conclusion, as this subject remains in the shadows, active ground work is required on all fronts.
