  • The study examined the mediating effect of emotional dysregulation on the relationship between care worker's job stress and mental health. The Geriatric Caregiver's Job Stress Questionnaire, Difficulties in Emotion Regulation Scale, and The Symptom Check-List-90-R were administered to 154 care workers. Through the hierarchical regression analysis, direct interrelationship among job stress, emotional dysregulation, and mental health was examined. Furthermore, the statistical significance of mediating effect of emotional dysregulation on the relationship between job stress and mental health was tested through the bootstrapping. The result showed that the lack of emotional clarity and the limited access to emotion regulation strategies appeared to have a complete mediation effect on the relationship between job stress and mental health. That meant the necessity of adaptive emotional regulation in dealing with mental health problem elicited by job stress.

This study adopted hermeneutic phenomenological method which was developed by van Manen. The participant for this study was a ChoSun-jok woman who had worked as a care-giver and housekeeper in Korean home for more than 2 years. She missed the time when she was raising her own daughter and son and expected the time that her family would be together. So, her present time wears away for her stable future in Korea which give an opportunity to make a good money.

She felt that she was disregarded from the family when she miscommunicated with them because of the difference between cultures.

The following results were obtained. 1. Of the housewives studied, 61.5% knew that B.C.G. is a vaccine for T.B prevention and 12.3% knew that D.P.T. is a vaccine for diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus. 2. The vaccination rate of the children under six-year of the housewives studied was: polio 83.1%, B.C.G. 75.4%, D.P.T. 66.2%, and measles 55.4% respectively. 3. The vaccination rate was higher in children in the area near from the health subcenter than in there of the area further away. 4. Out of 87 respondants, 87.5% knew one or more methods of contraception for spacing children. These were: loop 69.0%, oral pill 66.7% and condom 14.9% respectively. 5. Out of 87 respondants, 82.2% knew the methods of contraception for sterilization. These were: laparascopy 87.5% and vasectomy 16.9%. 6. Out of 87 respondants those who had experience using contraceptive methods were 70.1% and present users were 47.1%. 7. Contraception practice rate was higher in the group of housewives having middle school education or above than those having primary school education or less. 8. Functions of the health subcenter listed by respondants were: patients care 72.4%, family planning 31.0%, vaccination 23.0%, T.B. control 3.4%, health education 3.4%, infant birth delivery assistance 1.1% respectively. 9.

  • This study was a quasi-experimental research of a non-equivalent control group and non-synchronized design for analyzing the effects of fire safety education on care worker trainees. The subjects of the study were care worker trainees of the S Care Worker Institution: 57 trainees with 28 in the experimental group, and 29 in the control group. The research period was from May 21 to June 14, 2018 and the experiments focusing on fire safety education were performed once per week for a total of four times over the research period. The data were then analyzed using a ${\chi}^2-test$ and t-test. The results showed that fire safety education is an effective source of education for increasing the knowledge on fire safety, attitudes towards fire safety, perceived behavioral control on fire safety, behavioral intention on fire safety, and fire safety behavior in addition to being incredibly useful in practicing fire safety behaviors throughout their daily lives. On the other hand, the subjective norms on fire safety did not show any significant differences. Therefore, this paper suggests a follow-up study that should focus on analyzing the effects of the subjective norms on fire safety.
