  • Psychometric properties of the Japanese CES-D, SDS, and PHQ-9 depression scales in university students

    Yusuke Umegaki; Naoya Todo

    We used an item response theory (IRT) model to simultaneously compare the psychometric properties of 3 commonly used self-report depression scales translated into Japanese-the Zung Self-Rating Depression Scale (SDS), the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D), and the Patient Health Questionnaire Depression Scale (PHQ-9)-in a Japanese university student sample. Although the 3 scales were likely to measure the same underlying construct-that is, depression-the choices of the negatively worded items in the SDS and CES-D did not function well. The CES-D provided more information than the other scales at the range of depression severity approximately from the mean through 2 standard deviations above the mean, while the PHQ-9 provided more information for the other degrees of depression. The PHQ-9 performed better as a whole, as it provided more information than the other scales on the broadest range of depression severity, and it did not contain items with inefficient choices. The CES-D may also be a good choice when sampling students with elevated levels of depressive symptoms. Finally, we linked the 3 instruments on a common scale using parameters derived from IRT analysis, and we provided a crosswalk table to enable the conversion of each scale score., AMER PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSOC, Mar. 2017, Psychological Assessment, 29 (3), 354 - 359, doi;web_of_science

  • Correlations between formal help-seeking behavior for psychological problems and help-seeking intentions and attitudes

    Yusuke Umegaki

    The present study examined the correlations between formal help-seeking attitudes/intentions and actual helpseeking behavior for psychological problems. Initially, I assessed university students' attitudes and intentions to seek help, as well as their prior experience of seeking help from five formal sources of help (Time 1: N = 707). Actual help-seeking behavior was assessed four weeks after Time 1 to determine the correlations between helpseeking attitudes/intentions and behavior (Time 2: N = 412). The results revealed that for four out of five formal sources of help, help-seeking intentions were weakly correlated with help-seeking behavior (r = .11 - .22). Although help-seeking attitudes did not significantly predict help-seeking behavior, intentions were positively correlated with help-seeking attitudes (r = .23 - .34). I discuss future directions for measurement of help-seeking behaviors., Japanese Psychological Association, 2017, Shinrigaku Kenkyu, 88 (2), 191 - 196, doi

  • Effects of contingencies of self-worth and sensitivity to indebtedness on optimistic bias in seeking help for depression

    Yusuke Umegaki

    The occurrence of the optimistic bias in seeking help for depressive symptoms has been attributed to the threat-to-self and equity theories. The current study tested the hierarchical relationships between contingencies of self-worth (CSW), self-esteem (SE), sensitivity to indebtedness (SI), and optimistic bias in seeking formal/informal help for depression. An online questionnaire survey was conducted with Japanese university students (n=1000). Results from structural equation modeling analysis revealed the mediating effect of CSW on SE and optimistic bias. SI was positively related to optimistic bias in symptom recognition and informal help-seeking. The results suggest that both CSW and SI are responsible for the occurrence of optimistic bias in seeking help for depression. Cognitive patterns in recognizing personal and others' depressive symptoms and needs for seeking help were discussed., WILEY-BLACKWELL, Oct. 2015, Japanese Psychological Research, 57 (4), 331 - 347, doi;web_of_science

  • Testing the effect of migratory restlessness on the occurrence of vagrant continental passerines in Japan

    Yusuke Umegaki

    Many vagrant passerines from the Western Palearctic have been documented in Japan. In the present study, I tested the following two hypotheses: (1) the vagrancy of continental passerines migrating to Japan is affected by migratory distance and migratory direction, rather than distance from the normal distributional range; and (2) the vagrancy of continental passerines migrating to Japan is related to migratory restlessness. Data on vagrants were collected from various sources, and the effects of migratory distance, distance from the normal distributional range, migratory restlessness, migratory direction, and normal distribution size were examined. The results revealed significant positive effects of migratory distance and migratory restlessness, with these effects being significant even when the effects of other variables were controlled. The normal distribution size had a marginally significant positive effect, but none of the remaining variables predicted the occurrence of vagrants. The vicinity of the normal distributional range of continental passerines was not a predictor of vagrancy. These findings indicate that the endogenous migratory program of individuals is responsible for the occurrence of vagrants in Japan, and that sufficiently restless birds may reach the Far East., ORNITHOLOGICAL SOC JAPAN, UNIV TOKYO, SCH AGR, Dec. 2014, Ornithological Science, 13 (2), 83 - 90, doi;web_of_science

  • Factors related to seeking help from a student counseling service for depression and suicidal ideation: Japanese university and college students

    Masato Kimura; Yusuke Umegaki; Haruhisa Mizuno

    The present study investigated the process of students' seeking help from a student counseling service for depression and suicidal ideation, and related factors. Japanese university and college students (N = 758) completed a self-report questionnaire that included measures of help-seeking behavior for hypothetical problems (depression and suicidal ideation), the seriousness of the problem, attitudes toward seeking counseling, self-esteem, depressive symptoms, social support, and demographic variables. The results of logistic regression analysis indicated that gender (female), social support, and the seriousness of the problem were positively correlated with willingness to seek help. Seeking help from a student counseling service for suicidal ideation was positively correlated with gender (male), the seriousness of the problem, and attitudes toward seeking counseling. Implications of these findings for intervention strategies that focus on the process of help-seeking behavior were discussed., Japanese Association of Educational Psychology, 2014, Japanese Journal of Educational Psychology, 62 (3), 173 - 186, doi

  • Optimistic bias in help-seeking intentions and behaviors for depressive symptoms

    Yusuke Umegaki; Masato Kimura

    The present study investigated the effect of optimistic bias on help-seeking intentions and behaviors in relation to health care professionals and nonprofessionals for depressive symptoms. In addition, the study tested the hypothesis that seeking help from professionals poses a greater threat for self-esteem than from non-professionals. A questionnaire survey (N = 462) using clinical vignettes was conducted with university students. The results suggested that optimistic bias had an impact on help-seeking intentions and behaviors directed towards both health care professionals and nonprofessionals. There seemed to be a relatively stronger threat to self-esteem in help-seeking involving nonprofessionals and a weaker threat in help-seeking involving professionals, contrary to previous studies. The results were explained by the threat to self-esteem and equity theories. Understanding the rationale of optimistic bias and symptom recognition in the helpseeking process may provide relevant information to bridge the service gap in the treatment of depression., Dec. 2012, Shinrigaku Kenkyu, 83 (5), 430 - 439, doi;pubmed
