Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 44, issue 12, 2006, Pages 9~18
A case study was conducted on the development of patient clothes designs at the Korea University Medical Center, in order to provide an example of patient clothes designs which meet the hospital identity and the demands of patients and nurses. In this study, we focused on general patient pajamas and one-piece gowns worn in the obstetrics and gynecology department. A scientific and systematic design approach consisting of the following four steps was conducted in the designing process: needs assessment, design direction establishment, design presentation, and final decision. For the first step, focused group interviews and a survey were conducted to identify the needs of the patients and nurses. According to the results of the first step, 3 fabric patterns with light, modern, rhythmic, modest and ordinary images were designed utilizing the university and hospital symbols and logotypes. Fixed forms with realistic and geometric characteristics and colors, including white, yellow, blue, grey, and pink were selected to deliver the preferred image. Each fabric pattern was made in male and female versions of the color sets. The following styles of patient clothes were made with the 3 fabric samples: general patient pajamas with a U-neckline, 9/10-length sleeves and ankle-length pants, a full-length sleeved gown with openings for breast-feeding, and a gown with a deep back-neckline and button fastening. Different sizing systems for males and females were recommended for the production.

Yun, Ju-Ri ; Hwang, Hae-Shin ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 44, issue 12, 2006, Pages 19~30
The present study investigated the effects of children's cognitive styles on their interpersonal problem solving performances. It examined closely whether children's interpersonal problem solving performances differed depending on their individual cognitive styles such as field independence-field dependence and reflection-impulse cognitive styles. It also examined whether children's interpersonal problem solving performances differed depending on the subjects children interacted with. The subjects were 80 5-and 6-year-old children from three child care centers. Collected data were analyzed with SPSS Win 10.0 and processed statistically using average, standard deviation, and repeated measures design. Children's interpersonal problem solving performances showed differed according to the subjects they interacted with. Children showed better interpersonal problem solving performances with their peers than with adults like teachers or parents. There was a significant positive correlation between children's field independence-field dependence cognitive styles and interpersonal problem solving performances. That is, the more independent children were, the higher their interpersonal problem solving performances were. In addition, there was a partially negative correlation between children's reflection-impulse cognitive styles and interpersonal problem solving performances. The more impulsive children were, the lower the problem solving performances were.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the correlation among parental bonding, attachment styles, love styles and satisfaction in dating and their effects on other variables. The main findings of the study were as follows 1)The stronger the relationship with one's parents in infancy, the higher the possibility to forge secure attachment. 2)There was a significant correlation between attachment styles and love styles. 3)There was a significant correlation between attachment styles and dating satisfaction. 4)There were meaningful differences on dating satisfaction and duration among different love types. This study showed the importance of forging secure attachment between parents and children, and found related variables that can affect dating satisfaction and duration. However, the study results were based on a limited group of people, which limits the generalizability of the results to the general public. Follow-up studies that cover a wide range of age groups and related variables are necessary.

Bae, Moon-Jo ; Jeon, Gwee-Yeon ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 44, issue 12, 2006, Pages 53~64
The purpose of this study was to investigate the variables on employees' retirement expectations divided into imposed frustration, new beginning, transition to rest, and continuing. Independent variables were individual(gender, age, occupation, income, education, and health condition), psychological(self-esteem, locus of control, attitude of leisure, and attitude of family), and job-related variables(job attitude, job satisfaction, and job stability). In order to achieve this purpose, a survey was conducted with 515 employees from Daegu and Kyungpook. Retirement expectations were measured with questionnaire based on several studies. The data analyzed by frequency, percentage, mean, factor analysis, Cronbach's
, correlation, and multiple regression. The major findings were as follows. First, imposed frustration was affected by income, self-esteem, locus of control, job satisfaction, job attitude, and job stability. Second, new beginning was affected by self-esteem, locus of control, attitude toward leisure and family, and job stability. Individual variables were not statistically significant predictors of new beginning. Third, transition to rest was affected by locus of control, attitude toward family, job satisfaction, job attitude, and job stability. Individual variables were not statistically significant predictors of transition to rest. Finally, continuing was affected by age, education, job satisfaction. Psychological variables were not statistically significant predictors of continuing.

Song, In-Sook ; Yang, Deok-Soon ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 44, issue 12, 2006, Pages 65~78
It is very important for consumers to control their buying impulse the modem market environments because of the enormous marketing pressure to induce consumers to buy. In this context, we investigated (i) the relevant factors to construct the strategies for restraining buying impulse, (ii) the frequency with which the strategies are used, and (iii) the variables related to the strategies. Data were gathered through an internet survey(azoomma.com) and total 626 cases were analysed. Self-control strategies prior to the buying impulse comprise four categories: restricting the means of payment and transportation, avoiding shopping stimulus, no-wandering around a shop, and planning a purchase. Self-control strategies after the buying impulse comprise five categories: normative assesment of impulse buying, reconsidering economic condition, postponing purchasing decision, distrusting marketing activities, and partially satisfying buying impulse. Most of married women use these strategies very often, and some psychological variables are more related with them than demographic variables. Based on findings some implications for consumer education are also discussed.

Kim, Hye-Jeong ; Park, Ji-Hoon ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 44, issue 12, 2006, Pages 117~126
A movie's fashion style delivers the overall atmosphere of the scene including the characters's class, personality, spiritual world and inner thinking and even their conflicts in the story. The movie 'American Psycho' directed by Mary Harron and based on from Bret Easton Ellis's original novel ridicules the American yuppie culture of the 1980's through the behavior of the hero Patrick Bateman. The life style of the yuppie sees itself as the high-class embodiment of a particular culture, but the various subcultures such as Glam and Punk show that it is merely a two-faced culture suffering from hypocrisy and mammonism. An analysis of the costumes found in the movie indicated an exhibition of the 1980's Haute Couture fashion, which was mainly occupied by the mainstream social class and of the social phenomenon of post-modernism. The anti-fashion presented in the movie as the resistance culture formed by the subculture was in extreme contrast with the expression of self-actualization.

Bang, Hyun-Ju ; Yoon, Gyung-Ja ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 44, issue 12, 2006, Pages 127~137
The goal of this study is twofold: (1) to identify how well the predictors of family resilience using selected ENRICH subscales measure couple resilience of spouse abusing couples; (2) to verify how predictors of family resilience differentiate abusive partners from non-abusive partners through discriminant analysis. The results show that nonviolent couples have significantly higher scores of family resilience factors than violence experienced couples. The accuracy of discriminant analysis was as high as 85.7% for non-violent couples and 85.4% for violence experienced couples. Whereas collaborative problem solving and couple's flexibility had the highest discriminant power, socioeconomic resources and transcendence and spirituality had little contributed. In addition, this study shows that predictors of family resilience have high discriminant power for distinguishing violent groups from non-violent groups. The results of this study can be clinically utilized in identifying violent groups and designing couple education programs. Based on these results, the recommendations for the future research in this area were discussed.

Nam, Su-Jung ; Yoo, Hyun-Jung ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 44, issue 12, 2006, Pages 189~201
The purpose of this study was to explore consumers' experiences in one used market site. For this purpose, in-depth interviews were conducted for the 8 consumers who were members of the used market site. In the study methodology, the grounded theory designed by Strauss and Corbin was utilized. From the analysis results, 23 subcategories and 11 categories were created. In the axial coding, the following paradigm model was proposed: 1) the casual conditions were "the pond of information" and "underground market," 2) the contextual conditions were "inconsistent behavior" and "error of communication", 3) the central phenomenon was "non-ethic behavior of seller/buyer, 4) the intervening conditions were "induction of intimacy", "use of patronage", and "creation of network", 5) the action/interaction strategy was "being shrewd", and 6) the consequence was "adaptation/non-adaptation". In selective coding, the core category was "to adapt of non-ethic behaviors through being shrewd." Based on the core category, the following four types of process of adaptation of the used market site were found: "A selfish addict," "An advanced utilitarian", "A hard philosopher," and "A cynical dropout".
