PURPOSE
The purpose of this study is to explore the effects of a group movement exercise program on psychophysiological variables in the institutionalized elderly.
METHODS
This research adopted the non-equivalent control group pretest-posttest design. Twenty elders were selected as an experimental group, whereas twenty-two elders were as a control group. The group movement program consisted of 35 minutes of dance and three days a week for eight weeks. Resting systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure and heart rate were measured in a relaxed sitting position. The range of flexion and extension of joint was measured with a gonimeter. Life satisfaction and self-efficacy were measured by self-report. Data were analyzed through chi2-test, t-test and ANCOVA using SPSS/WIN program.
RESULTS
The results were as follows: Resting systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure and resting heart rate decreased significantly by the group movement training. The range of flexion and extension of the shoulder and hip joints increased significantly. The scores of life satisfaction and self-efficacy increased remarkably by the group movement.
CONCLUSION
The results suggest that group movement training can be an effective intervention to improve psychophysiological variables and the range of motion for the institutionalized elderly.

PURPOSE
The purpose of this study was to examine impulsivity and self-efficacy according to Internet addiction in adolescents.
METHOD
Subjects were middle and high school students in Daegu (N=486). Data were collected by a self-rating questionnaire including demographic data, a Korean version of Internet addiction, impulsivity and self-efficacy.
RESULT
Impulsivity and self-efficacy according to Internet addition were significantly different (F=22.909, p<.001). There were significant correlations between Internet addiction and impulsivity (r=.280, p<.01), between Internet addiction and self-efficacy(r=-.288, p<.01) and between impulsivity and self-efficacy (r=-.665, p<.01).
CONCLUSION
These results indicate that the more addictive to the Internet the more impulsive and the less self-efficacious. Therefore, further studies are needed to generalize these results and examine the effects of Internet addiction more broadly.
