PURPOSE
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship of depression and smartphone dependency with female college students' career decision-making self efficacy.
METHODS
This was a descriptive study. The survey participants were 497 female college students in M City and S City. Data were collected from November 16 to December 4, 2015 using self-report questionnaires including BDI (Beck Depression Inventory), Smartphone Dependency Scale, and CDMSES-SF (Career Decision-Making Self Efficacy Scale-Short Form). Data were analyzed through descriptive statistics, independent-samples t-test, ANOVA, and stepwise multiple regression.
RESULTS
Career decision-making self efficacy showed significant differences according to religion. Smartphone dependency was found to have a statistically significant negative correlation with career decision-making self efficacy and a positive correlation with depression. Depression was found to have a statistically significant negative correlation with career decision-making self efficacy. Stepwise multiple regression analysis revealed that the predictors of career decision-making self efficacy were depression (7.1%), religion (1.8%), and smartphone dependency (1.3%), accounting for a total of 10.6% of the variance.
CONCLUSION
This study suggests that interventions to promote female college students' career decision-making self efficacy should consider their depression, religion, and smartphone dependency.

PURPOSE
This study was to analyze the quality of life of married women practicing a natural family planning method based on given parameters in order to obtain some specific basic data for developing holistic programs to enhance the quality of life of married women practicing natural family planning.
METHODS
The subjects of this study were selected from married women who had been practicing natural family planning over two years. Data were collected from May 20 2001 to March 5 2002 using a structured questionnaire and interviews. The total number of subjects was 239. Collected data were analyzed using PC-SAS, which utilized descriptive statistics. In addition, LISREL 8.0 program was used to utilize covariance matrix.
RESULTS
The hypothetical model was reasonably fitted to commonly accepted data. Revision was required for the x2 value and RMR, and the model was revised by eliminating 6 paths. The revised model was fit well for commonly accepted data (x2 = 86.26, GFI = 0.97, NFI = 0.98, NNFI = 0.99, AGFI = 0.96, RMR = 0.02, CN= 422). Variables that influence the practice of natural family planning were communication of spouses, knowledge about natural family planning, self-efficacy and perceived benefits. Variables that control the quality of life were self-efficacy, internal health locus of control, attitude toward natural family planning, communication of spouses, perceived benefits and natural family planning behaviors.
CONCLUSIONS
These findings prove that the quality of life of married women practicing natural family planning can be improved through developing programs that enhances communication of spouses, self-efficacy and perceived benefits.

AbstractAbstract PDF
This study was attempted to understand experiences of the user of natural family planning(NFP) by applying Q-methodology. 37 statements were used to Q population through literature research and interviews. For the P sample. I interviewed personally 30 people who had taken a lesson in NFP for over 6 months and had been using and experiencing it autonomously for more than 2 years so far, and asked them to Q-classify the statement cards in order of the degree of approval from the one they most approved to the one they least approved. Data were coded and input into a computer and wee analyzed using QUANL PC Program. In this study I discovered 4 types of experiences by the users of NFP and named them each according to their features: the first a type of mutual control with morality the second a type of the pursuit of mutual cooperation the third a type of the pursuit of conviction and the fourth a type of the perception of health management. The first type said that NFP was a good contraceptive way in which no drug or devices are used that the husband's cooperation was needed and that they became able to control sexual desire with morality. The second type perceived that continuous efforts were required to put NFP in practice that the husband's cooperation was essential and that dialogues between husband and wife were also necessary to use it and as such they regared mutual cooperation between husband and wife as highly important. On the other hand the third type perceived that one's conviction played a big part that knowledge of physiological changes was useful and the ability to sense physical changes improved and that one's willpower was important and thus they regarded one's own willpower as most important. The fourth type reported that this method was a good way to control pregnancy and should be taught about at the beginning of sex education and thus they were emphasizing the importance of NFP as a helpful way to manage one's health. I, therefore intend to provide the following suggestions based on the result of this study. 1) It is necessary to develop a program that allows NFP to be applied to sex education program. 2) It is necessary to analyze factors that affect the execution of NFP. 3) It is necessary to analyze causes of failure of those who fail to execute NFP.
