  • Achievement Failures and Self-Regulation Processes among Chinese University Students in Hong Kong

  • BOND Michael Harris, Hui Chin-Ming*
    15 November 2004
    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    In this study, achievement failures and self-improvement strategies of Chinese university students were explored through both survey and experimental methods. The content of achievement failures found in the study was used to shed light on structure and dimensions of failures confronted by university students in Hong Kong. The influences of individuals’ social beliefs, values, self-esteem and attribution on the type of self-regulation strategies used in the process of achievement pursuit and the outcome of the pursuit were also investigated in this study. A goal-directed motivational system model was built to illustrate and explain the relationships between the psychological constructs mentioned above. (SS04813)



  • Age Differences in Social Goals: Should Older Adults Be Socially Active?

  • FUNG Hoi Lam Helene, LANG Frieder*
    1 September 2003
    Research Grants Council (Earmarked Grants)

    The project aims at studying whether being socially active is adaptive for older adults in a collectivistic society, i.e., a society that emphasizes interpersonal relatedness. Traditional theories of aging argue that older adults with larger social networks have higher psychological well-being. Yet, our theory and research in European and North American cultures have demonstrated that older adults are quite selective in choosing their social partners. What matters to their psychological well-being is having a small social network that consists of a high proportion of emotionally close social partners. Being socially active and having social networks that are as large as those of younger adults is not necessarily adaptive for older adults. In this project, we seek to extend this line of research to Hong Kong – a collectivistic culture. In an initial study and its2-year follow-up, we will test (1) whether older adults are more likely to maintain emotionally close social partners and drop less close social partners than are younger adults; (2) whether these age differences in social network composition are positively related to the psychological well-being of the specific age groups; (3) whether the above relationships differ depending on the extent to which an individual emphasizes interpersonal relatedness.

    1 January 2004
    Germany/Hong Kong Joint Research Scheme

    This study examines the anxiety symptoms of a community sample of children and adolescents in Germany and in Hong Kong. The specific aims are to estimate the prevalence and risk factors of anxiety symptoms, and to examine the associated psychosocial impairment.
    The cross-cultural design allows the recruitment of a large sample size (N=800) and the comparison of risk factors (personal and social/cultural factors) for anxiety symptoms in Germany and Hong Kong. Findings of this study may help to clarify the universality and different forms of anxiety symptoms among youths in these two cultures. (SS03411)



  • Application of Self-Determination Theory to Smoking Reduction

    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    Smoking has long been identified as the most prominent cause of preventable deaths. In view of detrimental effects of smoking, exploring factors facilitating smoking reduction is therefore important for community health. The proposed research aims to apply Self-Determination Theory (SDT) to smoking reduction among Hong Kong smokers. SDT values the role of self-determination in maintenance of people’s behavior. It is conceptualized from three basic psychological needs of humans, namely need for autonomy, need for competence, and need for relatedness. It proposes that people’s engagement in a particular health behavior is influenced by their level of autonomy in their health motivations, their perceived competence of performing the behavior and the support for their autonomy in their health decisions.
    The study has several theoretical extensions, which concern the nature of autonomous motivations, the effect of individual characteristics on the nature of autonomous motivations, and the unique contribution of situation-specific self-efficacy to SDT research on smoking.
    The research is a 1-month follow-up study targeting at Hong Kong smokers who are motivated to quit smoking. Results from the proposed study show added values both in theoretical and practical perspectives. Theoretically, it extends our understanding of SDT in predicting people’s smoking reduction. Practically, the model may offer grounds for future smoking cessation campaigns promotion strategies and clinical smoking cessation services. (SS07410)



  • Bicultural Orientations and Conflict Resolution: A Cross-Cultural Study

  • CAREY Timothy Patrick, CHEN Xiaohua Sylvia*
    1 January 2007
    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    The present study aims at investigating the relationship between bicultural self-construal and conflict resolution in the industrial and organizational contexts of Hong Kong and the U.K. Research on cultural dynamics has received growing attention, and the cultural concept of self-construals has been used increasingly to explain social behavior. In such studies, the self in individualistic cultures is characterized as independent, autonomous, and agentic; in collectivistic cultures, as interdependent, connected, and communal (e.g., Markus & Kitayama, 1991; Triandis, 1989, 1995). Past research has explored the relation between self-consturals and conflict management or negotiation styles. Previous studies have shown that respondents from individualistic cultures prefer confrontational styles such as dominating, whereas those from collectivistic cultures favor nonforcing, harmony-enhancing styles such as obliging and avoiding (e.g., Gire, 1997; Kim & Kitani, 1998; Leung, Au, Fernandez-Dols, & Iwawaki, 1992; Trubisky, Ting-Toomey, & Lin, 1991). Furthermore, self-construals have been found to be a better predictor of conflict resolution styles than ethnic/cultural background (Oetzel, 1998). Higher levels of independence have led to greater concern for self-face maintenance; higher interdependence to concern for other-face maintenance (Kim, Lee, Kim, & Hunter). In this study, we will measure four patterns of self-construal, viz., bicultural, Western, traditional, and culturally-alienated (Yamada & Singelis, 1999). We suggest that individuals with bicultural self-construal have a well-developed sense of independence and interdependence, and will display more culturally appropriate behaviors in conflict resolution. The availability of both types of self-construals may facilitate communication and adaptive behaviors for individuals interacting in multicultural societies. (SS06514)

  • Comparison of Psychological Characteristics of Adolescent Girls Displaying Bulimic Behaviors in Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong

  • LEUNG Yiu Kin Freedom, QIAN Ming Yi*
    1 April 2001
    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    psychological characteristics of adolescent girls displaying bulimic behaviors in Hong Kong, Beijing, and Shanghai. One thousand adolescent girls in each of the three cities will be tested. To explore possible developmental differences in the manifestation of bulimic features across different developmental stages, comparable number of subjects in two different age groups (age 12-14 and age 15-18) will be recruited. Subjects will complete a questionnaire package designed specifically to assess bulimic behaviors and relevant psychological characteristics. The prevalence rates of different bulimic behaviors among girls in the three cities will be examined and compared. Psychological characteristics of purgers (those who self-induced vomiting and abuse laxatives) and nonpurgers (those who do not purge) will be explored. Multivariate relationship patterns among bulimic features and the associated physical and psychological characteristics in the three samples will also be examined. Structural equation analyses will be conducted to explore potential causal relationships among different psychological variables in the development of bulimic behaviors in the three cities. Findings from this study will provide valuable information to mental health professionals about the extent and nature of bulimic behaviors among adolescent girls in Hong Kong, Beijing, and Shanghai. Comparing findings from people of the same ethnic heritage but growing up in different physical and social environment may also reveal interesting socioenvironmental variables that play a role in the development of bulimic behaviors.

  • Cross-Cultural Validity and Utility of the CPAI-2 in Career Counseling for College Students

  • CHEUNG Fanny Mui Ching, LEUNG Kwok*, LEONG T L Frederick*, CHEUNG Shu Fai*
    1 November 2006
    Research Grants Council (Earmarked Grants)

    This study examines the pattern of relationships between general personality and three key constructs in career counselling: vocational interest, career decision-making, and career exploration behavior. We use the Cross-cultural Personality Assessment Inventory (CPAI-2) which is derived as indigenously for the Chinese culture as a general personality measure. In Phase 1, we examine cross-cultural differences in the pattern of relationships between Hong Kong and American university students. We expect less congruence in the relationships between personality and career development among Hong Kong students whose vocational development may be more influenced by contextual factors. In Phase 2, we cross-validate the Chinese pattern of relationships among different cohorts of university students in Hong Kong, and identify profiles of personality and vocational interest for students enrolled in different faculties. We further examine the influence of participation in various career-planning activities on the students’ vocational development. Results will also contribute to the cross-cultural validation of the indigenously derived personality factors in the CPAI-2 beyond the Chinese culture, and demonstrate the utility of the CPAI-2 in career counselling.

  • Cultural and Psychosocial Factors Associated with Willingness toward Posthumous Organ Donation in Hong Kong

  • TANG So Kum Catherine
    11 November 2002
    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    With scientific advancements in medical technology in recent decades, organ transplantation has rapidly developed as an acceptable treatment for various fatal diseases. However, the demand for organs far exceeds that of the supply across countries. Many people die as a result of not able to find a suitable donor. This study aims to devise a comprehensive theoretical model to predict posthumous organ donation intention and behavioral commitment of signing the donation card. About 1,000 Chinese residing in Hong Kong will be interviewed. Various cultural and psychosocial factors under investigation include a sense of community, religious beliefs and cultural beliefs about death, altruistic beliefs, knowledge and normative beliefs about organ donation, and attitudes toward becoming a donor. Findings of this study have significance in designing public health campaigns to promote the acceptance of posthumous organ donation as well as to enhance the intention and behavior commitment to become a donor.

  • Cultural Attributional Model of Public- and Affiliate-, and Self-Stigma for Individuals with Major and Minor Psychiatric Disorders

  • MAK Wing Sze Winnie, CHEUNG Fanny Mui Ching, WOO Jean (Medicine & Therapeutics)
    1 September 2004
    Research Grants Council (Earmarked Grants)

    Stigma has been identified as a major source of many psychological, behavioral, and sociopolitical phenomena. Individuals’ quality of life, social relations, and major life opportunities diminish as the result of being relegated to a stigmatized status. Despite its significance on social minorities, local studies on stigma were generally descriptive and tended to focus on the perspective of the general public without regard to the target individuals and their affiliates. The singular focus and descriptive nature precluded the opportunity to explore the underlying social-cognitive mechanisms that may explicate the process of stigmatization as well as any unique cultural or contextual factors that may put Chinese particularly prone to stigmatization of social minorities.
    The proposed study will elucidate the mechanisms by which public-, affiliate-, and self-stigma of mental illness affect the well-being and recovery process of individuals with major or minor psychiatric disorders in Hong Kong. By linking the concomitant psychosocial factors related to the stigma experience of individuals with mental illness within the Chinese context, the study aims to unpackage the pluralistic construct of stigma. The understanding of these social-cognitive and cultural processes can better position researchers and service providers to design empirically based and effective stigma reduction interventions and prevention programs.

    Research Grants Council (Earmarked Grants)

    This project aims to extend and adapt the comprehensive Chinese (Cross-cultural) Personality Assessment Inventory (CPA) for adolescents. The combined emic-etic approach in the development of the CPAI-A will address the concern regarding cross-cultural relevance of imported Western instruments. It will provide a reliable and valid inventory suitable for both normal and clinical personality assessment. The project involves two phases. In Phase 1, culturally relevant personality constructs will be identified and scales will be developed for the standardization version of the CPAI-A. In Phase 2, the CPAI-A will be standardized in Hong Kong using a large-scale quota sample. Ratings by parents and teachers will be collected on a sub-sample. The reliability and validity of the CPAI-A and its factor congruence with the adult version will also be examined. The CPAI-A will be useful in the assessment of psychopathology, psychosocial problems, as well as for guidance in career planning and personal growth during adolescence. (CU03259)

  • The Development of a Checklist of Career Development Activities for College Students in Hong Kong

  • CHEUNG Fanny Mui Ching
    1 March 2006
    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    This Direct Grant project is a preparation study for a 2006-07 RGC study proposed to examine the cross-cultural differences in the pattern of relationships between personality dimensions and career outcome variables as well as within-culture differences at different stages of career development. This Direct Grant project serves to develop a comprehensive checklist of career development activities to provide objective information on the actual career development activities undertaken by the students, as a means to cross-validate the subjective measures used in the RGC project. In the pilot study, we will collect items of career development activities and prepare the final test version for the standardization study. In the main study, we will standardize the measure with a large-size sample of university students and examine its psychometric properties, such as the reliability, factor structure and validity. The standardized Checklist of Career Development Activities (CCDA) will provide useful information on the range of career exploration activities undertaken by college students in Hong Kong.

    1 August 2003
    Research Grants Council (Earmarked Grants)

    This project examines longitudinal predictors of early reading skills in Chinese children. Our unique sample of approximately 300 children each from Hong Kong and Beijing has already been tested at least twice from ages 8-20-months on the Chinese Communicative Development Inventory. We will focus on how these children’s previously tested early language skills predict subsequent performance on reading-related measures (e.g. phonological and morphological awareness) and reading itself. An overall measure of nonverbal intelligence will also be administered to all participating children at around the age of 3.5 years. All children will be tested on reading-related skills at twelve-month intervals from 3.5 years to eighty months or the fifth testing time, whichever comes first. Hierarchical linear modeling will be used to test growth curves predicting subsequent reading development from early oral language and literacy-related skills. A Beijing-Hong Kong comparison of growth curves in reading is particularly useful because it highlights some of the effects of teaching and linguistic environment on reading development in Chinese children. This study will be among a very few that have examined normal early spoken language development in relation to normal reading development in any language or orthography. Theoretically, this study will help researchers to understand both universal and language/script-specific aspects of reading development. Practically, this study will indicate to clinicians those markers of early language development that may be diagnostically useful for identifying children in Chinese-speaking populations who may be at-risk for subsequent reading problems.

  • Does a Fragile Sense of Self Predict Eating Pathology among Chinese Adolescent Girls in Hong Kong and Beijing? A 2-year Follow-up Study

  • LEUNG Yiu Kin Freedom, WANG Jianping*
    1 June 2003
    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    A fragile sense of self has long been implicated in the development of eating disorders. Findings from previous high-risk studies in the West generally support that low self-esteem is a valid vulnerability marker for future eating disorders. Recent theory and evidence, however, suggest that there is much more to self-esteem than whether it is high or low, and instability or fragility of self-esteem is an even more important construct in predicting psychological functioning. To extent knowledge in this area, the present study will examine the utility of the two components of self-esteem (both the level and fragility of self-esteem) in predicting eating pathology among Chinese adolescent girls in Hong Kong and Beijing in a 2-year follow-up study. Four thousand adolescents girls, 2000 from Hong Kong and Beijing respectively, between the ages of 11 and 13 will be recruited for the study. Subjects will be tested at three different time points over a period of two years with various measures assessing a fragile sense of self, parenting styles, unstable mood trait, weight and shape related variables, and eating symptoms. The following research questions will be addressed: (1) Does a fragile sense of self predict future eating pathology among Chinese adolescent girls in Hong Kong and Beijing? (2) What are the causal relationships among parenting styles, unstable mood trait, self-esteem problems, and other weight and shape related variables in the development of pathological eating? (3) Will sociocultural differences between Hong Kong and Beijing contribute to different result patterns across cities? Findings from this study will shed light on processes and mechanisms that help transform a fragile sense of self into pathological eating. (SS02932)



  • Does Behavioral Inhibition Predict Later Anxiety Disorders among Chinese Adolescents in Hong Kong And Beijing? A 2-Year Follow-up Study

    The present study will examine the construct of behavioral inhibition as a vulnerability marker for anxiety disorders among Chinese adolescents in Hong Kong and Beijing. We will also explore how parenting styles and other individual psychological characteristics may moderate or mediate the effect of inhibition in the development of pathological anxiety. Six thousand adolescents, 4000 from Hong Kong and 2000 from Beijing, between the ages of 11 and 13 will be recruited for the study. Subjects will be tested at three different time points over a period of two years with various measures assessing temperamental inhibition, parenting styles, individual affective, cognitive, and behavioral characteristics, and anxiety symptoms. In this study, we will try to answer the following research questions: (1) Does temperamental inhibition predicts future anxiety disorders among Chinese adolescents in Hong Kong and Beijing? (2) What are the causal relationships among temperamental inhibition, parenting styles, individual affective, cognitive and behavioral styles in the development of pathological anxiety? (3) Will sociocultural differences between Hong Kong and Beijing result in different result patterns across cities? Findings from this study will shed light on processes and mechanisms that help transform temperamental inhibition into pathological anxiety. Cross-cultural comparison of findings between Hong Kong and Beijing, or between the East and West, may also enhance our understanding of how environment moderates the effect of temperament in the development of anxiety disorders across cultures.

  • Effects of Pinyin Learning on the Development of Phonological Awareness and English Reading

  • CHEUNG Him
    15 November 2004
    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    The proposed research aims at discovering the relationship between Mandarin Pinyin learning and reading in English among Hong Kong children. I hypothesise that learning Pinyin to transcribe Mandarin speech on top of traditional logographic Chinese writing enhances phonological awareness, which transfers to English and subsequently facilitates English reading. The mechanisms involved are two. First, learning a transparent writing system (e.g., Pinyin), in which letters are consistently and regularly related to sounds, facilitates phonological awareness more than learning an opaque system (e.g., English), in which the relation between letters and sounds is less consistent. Hence, learning Pinyin in addition to written English benefits the development of phonological awareness. Second, phonological awareness in one language transfers to another. Hence, the relatively high level of phonological awareness attained through Pinyin learning transfers to and subsequently facilitates reading in English. The proposed research is important because it represents a novel attempt to examine transfer of phonological awareness across two non-native languages (i.e., Mandarin and English in Hong Kong children). Previous studies investigating transfer have used first and second languages; the unique effects of a native language are therefore confounded into the general effects of transfer. Furthermore, the anticipated outcome bears on whether the teaching and learning of Pinyin constitutes an educationally sound approach to Mandarin learning. (SS04912)



  • Emotional Understanding and Emotional Competence in Hong Kong Chinese Children

    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    This project intends to examine Hong Kong Chinese children's emotional understanding and emotional competence and their relation to children's theory of mind, rule understanding, and parental socialization practices. Two studies are proposed, involving a total of 500 Hong Kong children, aged 3 to 10, and their mothers. Study one is a study of school-aged children's emotional understanding and its relation to children's theory of mind, attribution styles, moral rule understanding, their parents' emotion socialization practices, and parents' own emotional competence. It will involve sending questionnaires about the parents' own empathy, emotional intensity, and a number of other emotional competence scales as well as a scale measuring emotional socialization practices in parenting to 350 mothers of children aged 6, 8, and 10 in local schools. Children of the parents whose questionnaires are completely filled out (i.e., no missing data) will then be asked to participate in a 20-minute experimental testing session. In the experimental session, children will be presented with a number of story tasks measuring their understanding of their own and others' emotions, a simple and complex false belief test, a measure of their attributional style (internal vs. external), and their understanding of social rules and conventions about events likely to cause shame or guilt in an imaginary story character. Study two examines emotional understanding and emotional competence in preschool-aged children and its relation to their theory of mind, ability to delay gratification, emotional responses during a potentially guiltinducing situation (peeking at a toy when asked not to), scores on the Child Behavior Checklist, and their parents' emotional competence and emotion socialization practices. Taken together, these studies will add enormously to our knowledge of Chinese children's baselines for emotional understanding and competence and form a strong basis for further crosscultural research in this area.

  • Experience of Stigma: Its Multifaceted Effects on Social Minorities

  • MAK Wing Sze Winnie

    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    Social stigma has gained much attention in social psychological and health services research. Previous studies tend to focus on a single perspective and on a particular condition of concern. To more comprehensively understand the experience of stigma and its effects on help-seeking, caregiving, and mental health, the proposed study attempts to use both qualitative and quantitative methods to elucidate core psychosocial and cultural factors that may be related to stigmatization of different social minorities (e.g. individuals with mental illness, individuals with intellectual disability, new arrivals from Mainland China). Moreover, the proposed study aims to understand the effects of stigma on psychological well-being and illness behaviors from different perspectives (from the public, the stigmatized, or their close associates). The significance of this study rests in providing a common basis from which we can understand stigma across different social minorities, which can further lead us into designing effective, empirically based, and ecologically valid stigma reduction campaigns in Hong Kong.

  • Hong Kong Students’ Academic Functioning and its Development Contexts Across the Transition from Primary to Secondary School

  • WANG Qian

    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    The proposed study will examine Hong Kong students’ academic functioning and its developmental contexts (i.e., influences from parents, teachers and peers) across the transition from primary to secondary school. By obtaining from multiple informants (i.e., students, parents, and teachers) comprehensive information relevant to students’ academic functioning and its developmental contexts when they are in the last semester of Primary 6 and again in the first semester of Secondary 1, the proposed study will shed light on two important questions left unanswered in prior work: 1) how there may exist a poor state-environment fit for Chinese early adolescents going through the transition from primary to secondary school, which in turn may result in deterioration in the quality of their academic functioning (e.g., decreased mastery orientation toward schoolwork); and 2) how the Chinese ideology about learning and academic achievement and the ensuing cultural supports (from parents, teachers, and peers) may help maintain the intensity of Chinese early adolescents’ academic functioning (e.g., sustained investment and engagement in schoolwork) across the transition from primary to secondary school. Findings from the proposed study will be of both theoretical and practical significance. For example, theoretically, they will advance the understanding of how cultural ideology about learning and academic achievement affects the development of academic functioning. Practically, they will be instructive to education reforms such that some of the negative effects of current educational system may be eased. (SS07702)



  • Identifying Emotional Factors Linked With Suicide Among Children, Adolescents, Adults and The Elderlies in Hong Kong - A Systematic Study Of Suicide Notes

  • LIN Siu Fung, WONG Chun Hon Michael#
    10 November 2004
    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    Suicide notes are considered (at least legally) crucial pieces of evidence about the motive and psychological states of the equivocal death (see, Atkinson, 1978).
    What causes suicide remains a myth. It is partly because suicide cannot be studied retrospectively unless the suicides have communicated their thoughts and feelings before their fatal act. McClelland et al (2000) found substantial amount of blames while others found substantial positive emotions as well as negative emotions in suicide notes. It is considered important that emotions of the suicides at the time of taking this act being identified, so that we would be able to address the needs of those who are at risk (see, Birchard, 2003).
    In Western society, it is more common for the elderly suicides to leave suicide notes than any other age-groups and it was found that younger suicides were significantly more likely than older suicides to include emotions (see, Brophy, 2003). My preliminary analysis of data collected in Hong Kong shows that 80% child-suicides, 1/3 young suicides and adult suicides left notes, while only ¼ elderly suicides left notes in year 2003. This age-related pattern seems to be different from that in the West. To tackle the problem in HK and to set up effective suicide preventive measures targeted at different age groups, it is worth exploring how suicides of different ages in Hong Kong describe, account for, and communicate to someone their suicidal act and their emotional states by studying their suicide notes scientifically and systematically.

    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    In this study, we seek to study the effects of different types of parent-child shared reading on children.s language development. In two groups of kindergarten students, normal hearing and hearing impaired, we will compare two approaches to parent-child book-sharing to a control condition in which parents and children are not given any special reading training.
    We address two primary issues in this study. First, to what extent can dialogical reading promote language skills in young children? This reading technique, which has been used with success in American preschool programs, has not yet been tested in other countries. If this program is successful, it may be one key to promoting children.s early interest in reading and facilitating children.s language growth. Second, to what extent can dialogical reading techniques facilitate language learning among the hearing impaired? One of the greatest difficulties hearing impaired children have is that of language delay. If it is possible to promote language growth in these children very early with this technique, this will be an important breakthrough in remediation techniques among parents and teachers who work with hearing impaired students.

    Sleepiness is a common problem among professional drivers, and its detrimental effect on vigilance and driving performance is well documented. However, this important health problem has not been studied in Hong Kong. The purposes of this study are to (1) examine how the sleepiness level and vigilance performance of taxi drivers vary within one shift and whether these changes are greater among daytime or nighttime drivers, (2) investigate whether matching taxi drivers' shift with their circadian typology (morning vs. evening type) will contribute to better shiftwork adaptation, and (3) determine whether exposure to therapeutic bright light can improve nighttime taxi drivers' sleep quality and quantity, alleviate their sleepiness, and improve their vigilance performance, and whether these changes are greater among morning type or evening type drivers.

  • The Integration of Bicultural Orientations in Hong Kong

    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    Research on bicultural identities and orientations has received growing attention. Yet, bicultural identities have often been associated with negative psychological outcomes, mostly arising from identity conflict or identity diffusion involving the two intersecting cultures. Recently, Benet-Martinez et al. (2002) have proposed the theoretical construct of bicultural identity integration (BII) to tap individual variations in the experience of this acculturation process. The present investigation is an attempt to adapt the BII framework to the Hong Kong Chinese context, where Chinese-English bilinguals are open to both Western and Asian influences despite being brought up in the same Chinese cultural setting. This research will be extended to include two under-investigated populations as well: new immigrants and domestic helpers. We aim to examine the integration of bicultural orientations and its association with language use, bicultural competence, acculturation attitudes and stress. We will also evaluate the impact of this bicultural integration process on respondents' self-esteem and life satisfaction. The distinctiveness of enculturation, which incorporates selected cultural elements, will further our understanding of the dynamics of cross-cultural integration. (SS04886)



  • An Investigation of the Independence of Mental Rotation and Viewpoint-dependent Object Recognition

    Research Grants Council (Earmarked Grants)

    In a world of three dimensions, the ability to recognize and reason about objects with different perspectives and appearances is crucial to survival. Researchers have long known that one such ability is mental rotation, or reasoning about the 3-D structure of an object. More recent studies have shown similar results to mental rotation when more fundamental tests of object recognition are conducted. An earlier study by my colleagues and I examined the nature of the differences between mental rotation and view-specific object recognition. In this project, we investigate this issue further.
    We will conduct three sets of studies in this research project. First, we will collect data from normal subjects at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and examine the factors that interfere with or facilitate either mental rotation or object recognition. Second, we will test normal subjects at Vanderbilt University, while they are placed in an MRI scanner. We will conduct fMRI while they are performing the tasks identified in the first phase of the project. Third, we will test brain-damaged patients from Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney, Australia, to examine whether damage to the temporal or parietal lobes are associated with specific deficits to object recognition or mental rotation, respectively.
    The results will give us much better understanding of the relationship between these two similar cognitive processes, and the neural basis upon which they stand. (CU03260)



  • Is Language Processing Cognitively Encapsulated? A Brain Imaging Analysis of Tonal and Non-tonal Languages

  • PENNEY Trevor Bruce, Besson Mireille*, Schon Danielle*
    5 February 2001
    France/Hong Kong Joint Research Scheme

    The question of whether the computations performed by the brain to process language are specific to language or whether they rely on more general cognitive principles is unresolved. While the claim for specificity is central to some linguistic theories, such as the generative grammar developed by Chomsky and followers (1) other linguistic theories, such as the cognitive grammars developed by Lakoff and others (2) assume that language is a cognitive function that shares the same functional and organisational principles as other cognitive functions, such as music processing.
    The research proposed here takes a first step toward addressing the general problem of the specificity of language processing by asking two, complementary, experimental questions. First, the researchers want to elucidate the neurophysiological basis of musical consonance. That is to say, they want to determine why two notes played simultaneously can sound pleasant or unpleasant. Second, they want to examine the neurophysiological basis of prosody, i.e. the melodic contour of the voice, and the way it is implemented in the brains of speakers of tonal and non-tonal languages. Specifically, the researchers want to determine if the brain's response to semantically congruent and incongruent sentences is modulated by whether or not the sentences are prosodically congruent. The answers to these two questions will lay the necessary groundwork for future experiments directed at legislating between the specificity and generality models of language function. (SS20013)

    This study involves following over 300 children's language development in two locations, Hong Kong and Beijing, for three years. The children were selected based on their results on the administration of a "Communicative Development Inventory" (Cantonese or Putonghua version, depending on location) when the children were 8- to 20-months-old. The top, middle, and lowest 10% of scorers in each age group will be re-examined for aspects of their phonological, lexical, and grammatical development at yearly intervals for two additional years.

  • Maternal Mediation of Writing in Kindergarten Children: A Comparison between Hong Kong and Beijing

    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    The proposed study tests how mothers’ approaches to guiding children’s writing are associated with their children’s early literacy skills in 60 Hong Kong 5-year-olds, and 60 6-year-olds in Beijing. We plan to adapt/create and apply scales of mother-child interactions in preschool writing based on previous research on Hebrew. These scales focus on how mothers help their children to write, e.g. by giving them autonomy to try to write by themselves or by giving them relatively little autonomy by emphasizing copying; comments on the writing process are also important. Ratings on each scale, along with measures of phonological awareness, morphological awareness, and visuo-orthographic skill, will be used to explain children’s word recognition. We will also compare mother-child joint writing by age and culture.
    This research will reveal mothers’ typical writing practices in Hong Kong and Beijing. Maternal mediation writing strategies may differ across these societies because of differences across them in oral languages, scripts, and use of Pinyin for teaching reading. Thus, it will be important to compare these. Theoretically, this study will test the importance of different maternal strategies for facilitating children’s early writing across age and culture in a broader Chinese context. Practically, this study might help us to understand what constitutes “best practices” for writing skills in early childhood. Whichever practices seem most strongly related to reading success might subsequently be applied by teachers or parents in helping children to achieve strong literacy skills. (SS07576)



  • Mental Illness Stigma Reduction Program

    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    The study tests the effectiveness of a newly developed stigma-reduction program for mental illness with traditional educational program and control in a random sample of secondary school students in Hong Kong. By combining interpersonal contact, that has been shown to be an effective ingredient in reducing stigma, with a theoretical framework that is based on the self-regulatory model, the proposed program aims to change participants’ attitudes towards mental illness in seven social cognitive dimensions (i.e., identity, cause, timeline, consequence, control, emotional representations of the illness, and overall illness coherence). Findings of the study will provide evidence to a new approach that can potentially reduce mental illness stigma systematically in the community. If we can change the way public view mental illness and communicate with each other about it, we can potentially reduce their stigmatization and facilitate help-seeking for mental health problems for the community at large.

  • Negotiating Survival: A Study of Hong Kong, Guangzhou, and U.S. Students' Negotiation and Dispute

  • BOND Michael Harris, TARDIF Twila
    1 November 2000
    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    The proposed study intends to examine the disputing and negotiating behaviors engaged in by strangers when they are asked to come up with a consensus in two Chinese cultures (Hong Kong and Guangzhou) and one Western culture (U.S.A.). Negotiating disagreement is a critical social skill for individuals in all cultures, particularly when that negotiation occurs in a group setting. There are suggestions from previous research that Chinese persons will be more conflict-avoidant than Americans as will women be with respect to men. These conclusions may be premature, however, since the specific ways in which Chinese and women negotiate may simply be different, leading to presumptions that they are more conflict-avoidant. This research attempts to document the various ways in which people may agree or disagree as well as support or undercut one another during negotiations, so as to more fully understand the full range of responses by which different groups communicate to achieve consensus. These differences in style may lead to important misperceptions if they are interpreted by members of another group, and this research will enable questions about cross-cultural misunderstanding to be addressed also. The inclusion of two Cantonese samples will enable us to understand if the socialpolitical differences between Hong Kong and Guangzhou have resulted in different negotiation styles, despite their linguistic and familial similarities.

    The increase in elderly population has raised a number of social and economic issues in Hong Kong. While there is an increasing burden to balance the needs of the old and young within their families, there is a strong economic pressure to support and care for a growing population of older people within our medical system. If our elderly can maintain their functioning capacities, they can live independently and remain productive after retirement. To be functioning capable, an elderly needs to maintain a good physical health and reasonable cognitive abilities. Cognitive function in terms of domains of ability--including attention, language, memory, spatial ability and conceptualization-is known to decline with. This cognitive decline is a significant factor that affects the daily functioning and quality of life of an aging individual. For instance, an elderly with severe cognitive impairment such as the one resulting from Alzheimer's disease will require 24 hours assistance even they are physically healthy. It is, therefore, both important and urgent to investigate how cognitive functions can be preserved in older persons. The proposed project aims to identify the psychosocial and lifestyle factors that account for changes in cognitive function in local elderly population. A community sample of 60 elderly people aged between 65 and 74 will be recruited to undergo interviews and a series of neuropsychological tests. The findings will be vital to the development of evidence-based programs to maintain the cognitive functions of elderly in Hong Kong. (SS00584)



  • Parent-Child Reading in the Hong Kong Bilingual Context

    1 August 2004
    Quality Education Fund, HKSAR Government

    We seek to improve both Chinese and English language and preliteracy skills, as well as interest in speaking English through a method of parent-child reading called dialogical reading in kindergartners. This dialogical reading program has worked well in previous research studies (mostly from the U.S.) in promoting early language and pre-literacy skills in children learning to read in their first language. This study will involve approximately 210 students and their parents in three kindergartens in Hong Kong. In order to evaluate this program using a rigorous research design, we seek to accomplish the following:
    1) Adapt current children’s books.
    2) Pretest children on early language and early literacy skills in both English and Chinese and randomly assign them to groups. These groups will be the same, separately in both Chinese and English, except a dialogical reading with additional linguistic training group will be included for the Chinese part, for a total of seven groups.
    3) Train selected parents.
    4) Facilitate a 12-week dialogical reading intervention.
    5) Post-test all children on language and early literacy skills in both Chinese and English.
    6) Analyze the data and draw conclusions.
    7) Create a dialogical reading manual to be made available to all parents and teachers on kindergartens to promote dialogical reading skills in both Chinese and English.
    If this technique is successful, it will be useful for pre-primary school educators in Hong Kong and perhaps in other areas of the world seeking to promote Chinese, and English as a second language as well. (SS04582)



  • Perceived Endings, Mortality Salience and Goal Regulation

    1 January 2003
    Germany/Hong Kong Joint Research Scheme

    As we age, many reminders – such as graduations, births of children and grandchildren, deaths of age peers, and one’s own health problems – all provide gentle and not-so-gentle reminders that lifetime is – in some sense – running out. Socioemotional selectivity theory suggests that it is precisely this sense of anticipated ending that makes old age emotionally meaningful. This project will test the theory by examining what we strive for, i.e., our goals, when we are reminded of the finitude of our life. It will also study the cognitive and behavioral outcomes of these goals in an aging context. Finally, it will investigate potential cultural differences in the above relationships between Hong Kong Chinese and Germans. (SS02986)

    In this study, personal goals and self-regulation strategies of Chinese university students were explored through both qualitative and quantitative research methods. The content of personal goals found in the study was used to shed light on the structure and dimensions of goals pursued by university students in Hong Kong. The influences of individuals’ social beliefs, values, degree of “goal-mindedness” on the type of self-regulation strategies used in the process of goal attainment and the outcome of their goal pursuit were also investigated in the prospective short-term panel study in this research project. A goal-directed motivational system model was built to illustrate and explain the relationships between the above mentioned psychological constructs. (SS03939)



  • Personality in the Bilingual Context: Self-Perceptions and Perceptions by Others

  • BOND Michael Harris, CHEN Xiaohua Sylvia*

    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    Personality has long been conceptualized as stable and consistent over time and across situations. However, numerous studies in social psychology have shown that social behavior of individuals varies considerably across different situations. This line of research demonstrates the importance of situation, the social environment that affects how people act. On the other hand, though language has been thought to affect thoughts, feelings, and actions which compose the personality construct, how language impacts on personality has rarely been explored. It is argued that language is associated with a history of usage, and using a second language accesses the cultural context of the groups using that language and in which it is applied, thus activating behavioral expressions of personality that are appropriate in the corresponding linguistic-social context. This research project attempts to examine the impact of language and culture on personality in the bilingual Chinese-English context. A series of studies will be conducted to determine whether Hong Kong Chinese bilinguals exhibit different patterns of personality characteristics, each associated with one of the two languages and their corresponding cultural contexts. We propose to qualify and quantify such discrepancies using different assessment approaches and methodologies to evaluate the range of impact for language shifts with Hong Kong Chinese bilinguals. The results of this project will have important applications in a number of areas such as communication, social behavior, ethnic identity, second-language teaching and inter-cultural processes.

    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    Research and clinical practice, indicate that post traumatic states can result form traumata such as war, natural or human-made disasters, adult or child sexual assault, child abuse, and crime (March, 1993). However in Hong Kong, despite the documented experience of many of these potentially traumatic experiences (e.g., Tang, 2001), no systematic study of the traumatic effects of these experiences has been reported in the English-language literature. This research programme based on a Hong Kong Chinese sample, assesses the prevalence of exposure to potentially traumatic events, identifies trauma related psychological correlates, establishes normative data for the Trauma Symptom Inventory (Briere, 1995) and the Dissociative Experiences Scale (Carlson & Putnam, 1993), and explores the applicability of imported conceptualizations of trauma by correlating these data with the Chinese Personality Inventory clinical scales (Cheung, et al., 1996).
    Implications relate to both policy and practice. The impact of unresolved trauma has been recognized as a significant public health issue overseas, including in North American and Australia (e.g., van der Kolk & McFarlane, 1996). Community crisis response programmes are costly and need to be targeted to the substantiated needs of specific groups. Survivors of interpersonal and sexual violence require funding and legislative support (e.g., Tang, Lee & Cheung, 1999). Without systematic empirical evidence of the traumatic impact of such experiences, proposals for funding and services remain anecdotally based. This study represents a new research direction in Hong Kong SAR, and aims to provide the first step necessary for the development of a comprehensive trauma research programme based on Hong Kong data.

    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    We seek to understand the effects of dialogic reading, an interactive parent-child reading technique, on the language, development of language-delayed children in Hong Kong. We will compare the effects of this technique to those in a control condition in which parent and children engage in shared-book reading without any special training.
    Language developmental delay affects a substantial proportion (estimates range from 5 to 15%) of children, with lasting consequences for their development. Given the seriousness of the influence of early speech delay on children’s later development, the proposed study will be conducted to establish the extent to which the proposed reading technique can facilitate language-delayed children’s learning of language and literacy skills.
    Although the dialogic reading technique has enhanced both language and emergent literacy skills of North American children, there is little research available on the effects of this technique on Chinese children. This study will help us to evaluate the overall effectiveness of the dialogic reading technique for Chinese language-delayed children, and to refine the technique for wider use in Hong Kong. As developed in North America, the dialogic reading technique is teachable within a short period of time to adults who have no background in psychology or linguistics, and the training is inexpensive. Positive results of this study may encourage parents and educators to learn and use the technique across Hong Kong, and this will be an important breakthrough in remedial language teaching techniques created to help parents and educators to teach language-delayed children most effectively.

  • The Role of Phonological and Morphological Awareness in Spelling and Reading Ability across Languages: A Comparison between Dutch and Chinese

  • MCBRIDE Catherine Alexandra, Reitsma Pieter*, Rispens Judith*
    1 November 2004
    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    In the proposed study, we examine how phonological awareness and morphological awareness are associated with vocabulary acquisition and reading and spelling skills in beginning readers and sixth graders in Hong Kong and The Netherlands. Our recent work, carried out in separate labs in Hong Kong and The Netherlands, suggests that awareness of morphemes as building blocks for language in Chinese and inflectional morphology in Dutch are both important predictors of early reading in those respective languages. The present study extends this research in four ways. First, we will examine the role of morphological awareness for more advanced reading and spelling skills in both scripts (Dutch, Chinese). Second, we will develop and test different tasks of morphological awareness in Dutch and Chinese and compare these when applicable across cultures and learning levels (beginning readers and sixth graders). We will focus on the role of lexical compounding across both languages but additionally study the role of inflectional morphology as separate from lexical compounding, which is particularly important in Dutch. Third, we will examine the roles of different tasks of morphological awareness for statistically predicting vocabulary acquisition across cultures and age groups. Finally, we will study the development of phonological awareness and morphological awareness relative to one another and to literacy skills and vocabulary knowledge across languages. The proposed study highlights universals and specifics of language and literacy development and may suggest new ways to identify and train those at-risk for reading or language delays across cultures.

    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    The study aims to examine the effect of labeling on stigma of individuals with psychotic features through an attributional model. Subsequent affect and discriminating behaviors will also be explored. As a stigma reduction and early intervention scheme, the Hospital Authority of Hong Kong has introduced the label of “Early Psychosis” for early onset schizophrenia since 2000. However, its effect in the reduction of stigma among young adults with early psychosis has not been empirically examined since its introduction. The present study attempts to (1) explore the difference in stigma cued by different sick labels, (2) identify cognitive attributes of positive symptoms and negative symptoms, (3) examine the effect of gender in the perception of individual with mental illness, and (4) assess the knowledge of the general public about early psychosis. The target population of the public survey is the general population aged 18 to 60 who speak Cantonese in all domestic households in Hong Kong. A total of 800 participants will be surveyed over telephone. A 3 (sick label) x 2 (gender of the young adult) x 2 (psychiatric symptoms) factorial design will be used in 12 vignettes to tap the cognitive affective, and behavioral responses of the consented participants towards a young adult with psychotic features. The significance of this study rests in providing a comprehensive understanding of the attributional patterns of different illness label from the general public, which may inform us in designing effective, empirically-based, and ecologically-valid stigma reduction campaign in Hong Kong.

    There are increasing incidents of adolescent sexual abuse by their peers. Existing prevention and educational programs rarely target at sexual by adolescent peers. There is an urgent need to have a better understanding of sexual attitudes and behaviors of adolescents to develop and facilitate more effective sexual education and sexual abuse prevention programs for upper primary and junior secondary school students. This study thus aims to (1) provide update information about adolescent sexuality in Hong Kong, (2) explore factors related to rapid and early sexual maturation among adolescents, (3) investigate the prevalence rate and profiles o abusers and victims of peer child sexual abuse among adolescents in Hong Kong, (4) examine how sexual permissiveness relates to the occurrence of peer child sexual abuse, (5) determine health and mental health consequences of peer child sexual abuse, and (6) identify key components for education and prevention programs in relation to child peer sexual abuse. This study will consist of two parts. Part I is qualitative interviews of upper primary and junior secondary school students. Part II is a large-scale of 3,000 students. (SS02456)

  • TAYLOR Paul John

    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    Globalization has resulted in an increasing need for the application of job-related information across countries. Recently there has been an increase in the development of generic job information that is meant to generalize to similar jobs across different organizations, but the research base for this generic job information has been drawn almost exclusively from research done in individual countries, primarily the USA. Without an understanding of the ways in which jobs compare across countries, the application of job analysis findings from one country to another may result in inappropriate use of human resource practices. The aim of this project is to begin to answer the broad question of whether job analysis information is transportable across countries, by comparing the activities and requirements of jobs across two countries: Hong Kong and the USA.
    The study will involve the completion of job analysis questionnaires concerning general work activities, ability requirements, and personality requirements for a set of 32 benchmark jobs within a sample of organizations within Hong Kong, followed by an analysis of that data in comparison to an existing, comparable dataset from the USA. At a conceptual level, the results of this project will suggest what impact, if any, country differences have on the activities and requirements of jobs. At a more practical level, the study will also be able to inform multi-national and local organizations within Hong Kong about the extent to which generic job information developed overseas can be applied locally.

    Research Grants Council (Earmarked Grants)

    Earlier studies with the Chinese Personality Assessment Inventory (CPAI) found that the indigenously developed personality test contains an additional personality dimension, originally labelled as the Chinese Tradition factor, beyond those deemed to be universal in the current Five-Factor Model (FFM) of personality. The CPAI, however, does not tap the Openness factor from the FFM. To establish the completeness of the CPAI, a set of scales defining the Openness factor in the Chinese culture will be developed in the first phase of this study. The scales will be standardized in China and Hong Kong. In the second phase, both Chinese and American data will be collected and the updated CPAI will be submitted to a joint factor analysis with the NEO-FFI, which measures the Five-Factor Model of personality. Results of the joint analysis will show that the interpersonal relatedness (IR) dimension tapped by the Chinese Tradition factor is needed for a complete description of Chinese personality on top of the FFM. They will also clarify whether the Chinese Tradition factor is a culture-general domain tapping the interpersonal relatedness dimension that is also relevant to Western culture, but has been neglected previously in Western theories of personality.

    The proposed study will incorporate measures of speed, phonological awareness, metalinguistic skill (primarily morphological awareness), and home literacy environment to predict beginning reading performance in bilingual (Chinese and English) Hong Kong children, monolingual (Chinese) Beijing children, and monolingual (English) American children in two grade levels, kindergarten and second grade. Children will be tested twice on these measures, initially in late October and again in July of the same academic year. Results will clarify the nature of phonological awareness in relation to language and orthography, the extent to which bilingual children have an advantage over monolingual children in metalinguistic awareness, and the relative importance of morphological and phonological awareness for reading of Chinese and English. We will use structural equation modeling to test the contributions of constructs of speed, phonological awareness, morphological awareness, and home literacy environment for reading each orthography, concurrently and longitudinally. Clarifying the strengths of these associations with reading and with one another will contribute to our understanding of the universal and orthography/language-specific components of comprehensive models of beginning reading of Chinese and English.
