    The relationship between self-concept, body image, and the personal health of the Assumption University female student
    This correlative study had the following four objectives; 1) to explore the self-concept and body image of the Au female students, 2) to explore the Au female students’ knowledge concerning personal health, 3) to identify health behaviors of Au female students, and 4) to study the correlation between self-concept, body image, and personal health of the Au female students. The population consisted of 1,336 female students who were pursuing a bachelor degree. The 243 participants were selected using stratified random sampling technique. Data was collected from the three questionnaires: Female Body Image Questionnaire, Self-Concept Questionnaire, and Personal Health Questionnaire. Data analysis was conducted by SPSS version 10.01. Results of data concluded that the majority of participants (75.40 %) had a slightly negative body image and only 8.60 % had a positive body image. However, the results show that only a small correlation exists between body image and health behaviors. 47.70 % of the participants posse sed positive levels of self-concept. Students with positive levels of self-concept were believed to also possess positive health behaviors. Furthermore, data analysis showed a significantly moderate correlation of 0.455 between these two variables, denoting that a direct relationship existed between self-concept and personal health. To accomplish the objective of exploring the Au female students’ general health, results showed that the majority (66.25%) held very good health practices, emphasizing that health was very important, 36.60 % stated to that they read health related literature, 41.20 % exercised regularly, and 50.60 % had very good eating habits, eating three meals daily. On the other hand, a percentage of the Au female students displayed negative health practices. 23.10 % of the participants had a bad practice of smoking almost always or often as a means to alleviate stress along with 31.60 % who either usually or always used alcohol as a means to handle stress. This study hopefully will assist in enhancing health care professionals understanding and perspective of the relationship between the human mind and body. It is noted that this connection will act as an important means in the advancement of interventions that will promote health.

    The third-year nursing students’ opinion toward the integration of student-centered approach for field trip in mental health and psychiatric nursing practicum
    This research aimed to examine the third year Assumption University nursing students’ opinions toward the integration of student-centered approach for field trip in Mental Health and Psychiatric Nursing Practicum. The eight of nursing students were purposive sampled by the researcher from 43 students. Data collection was derived by focus group discussion after completing three areas of field trip including the Stress Relaxation Clinic of Somdejchaophraya Institute of Psychiatry, Emergency Home of Association for the Promotion of the Status of Women, and Yuwaprasart Vaitayoprathum Hospital. Data analysis including content analysis and analytic induction were applied. The research results found that nursing students prepared themselves before field trip by meeting to choose their leader, set up field trip objectives, and delegate responsibilities to others. The benefits gained from field trip were receiving more knowledge, practicing working as a group and cooperating with other people. But the most benefit was obtaining knowledge as their real needed. There were some obstacles during the implementation of student-centered approach for example some students didn’t response in their assignments, moreover some parts of plan didn’t relate to the real environment of field trip areas. The instructors’ roles were facilitator, consultant, and encourager. Nursing students involved in all steps of activities, got more experiences that their needs, and knew how to seek knowledge by themselves which was the good point of the integration of student-centered concept into teaching-learning process. The results suggested that student-centered approach should be implemented in advance in nursing education as a life long learning.

    This study was a Quasi-experimental pretest-posttest non-equivalent comparison group design, aimed to evaluate the effects of the empowerment program for caregivers of autistic children. The participants were 74 caregivers who took care of 2-5 years old autistic children at the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Institute, Rajanakarin. After being enrolled into the study, the participants were matched by caregivers’ and children’s gender and assigned to the experimental group (37 participants) or the control group (37 participants).The experimental group completed the 5-day empowerment program which was administered by the researcher whereas the control group received only the routine treatment program. The empowerment program was composed of 4 steps: discovering reality, critical reflection, taking charge and holding on through group process. The data was gathered at the pre-test and at the 4th, 8th and 12th week after the intervention program.The findings revealed that the experimental group had statistically significantly higher scores on perceived self-efficacy in care of autistic children than the control group (p < .001) and there was a statistically significant difference between the 4th and 12th weeks (p < .05).The evidence from this study indicated that this program had effect on promoting perceived self-efficacy in autistic child care.
