This edition consists of six articles. The first article investigates the relations between resilience and post-traumatic, and psychological well-being among adolescents experiencing parents’ marital dissolution. A total of 56 participants who lived in Semarang completed three measurements. Correlational, t-test, and path analysis was applied. The result suggests that both resilience and post-traumatic growth significantly and positively correlated toward psychological well-being. Furthermore, post-traumatic growth was found to have a significant partial mediating effect on the relationship between resilience and psychological well-being.

In the next article, we present an experimental approach with a factorial design that aimed to identify the effect of news’ features, especially the news platform, and supporting data on the news credibility perception in middle adults. The participants in this research were 120 middle-aged social media users who were assigned randomly in four conditions, namely news with supporting data via Whatsapp, news without supporting data via Whatsapp, news with supporting data via Kompas website, and news without supporting data via Kompas website. This study found that there was no significant effect of supporting data and news platforms on news credibility perception in participants. This means that they tend to perceive the credibility of the news without considering the existence of supporting data or reliable news platforms.

The third article is about the role of mindfulness and self-compassion in a single way or combines with humor styles. The sample consisted of 261 students from 447 populations and used a quantitative approach. Results of the first phase using linear regression to see the role mindfulness toward humor styles stated that mindfulness did not play a role in affiliative humor, but there was a negative role between mindfulness on self-enhancing, aggressive, and self-defeating humor.

The fourth article investigates the moderating effect of ambidextrous organization culture in the relationship between leader autonomy support (LAS) and innovative behavior. Participants of this study were 117 employees in Jakarta with a tenure minimum of 1 year. Results showed that leader autonomy support significantly predicts innovative behavior, while ambidextrous organization culture significantly moderates the influence of leader autonomy support on innovative behavior.

The next article aims to develop and test a communication medium that can support the recovery process of post-discharge patients from the Mental Health Hospital or Rumah Sakit Jiwa (RSJ) in Aceh. This action research was carried out through focus group discussions (FGDs), interviews, and surveys to health practitioners (mental health nurses, psychiatrists, psychologists, community leaders) and family or caregivers of Patients with Schizophrenia (PWS). The study found that messages about Schizophrenia that are developed through a community-based approach are likely to be better accepted than the expert-led information.

Furthermore, the sixth article evaluates the validity of CFIT by analyzing the guessing behavior using the Item Response Theory (IRT) method. The sample of this study was 1,955 participants and the results showed that based on IRT 3 PL modeling, the items in the CFIT 3A are still feasible to use. The result of the model fit test using the Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) method as an additional analysis shows that the validity construct of CFIT 3A is good.
