Abstract


As my first edition of Makara Human Behavior Studies in Asia that I manage, I am excited to discuss six interesting articles that I have handpicked for this July 2018 edition. In the first article Arjadi et al (2018a) discuss the potential of using an Internet-Based psychological therapy in Indonesia for a prevalent and well-known mental disorder called depression. In the second article Renanita and Setiawan (2018) discuss about marriage satisfaction in Indonesia in relation to the status of employment of the wives. Then, we have another timely topic in the third article. Here Soon Aun Tan (2018)discusses the role of self-esteem as a potential mediator of the relationship between perceived discrimination and suicide in homosexual population. Subsequently, in the fourth article Natalya and Purwanto (2018) studied the validation of a new scale in Indonesian called Academic Motivation Scale. In the fifth article Mulyaningsih, Purwaningsih and Anggun (2018) estimate the economic significance of housewives’ role. Lastly, in the sixth article Ningdyah, Greenwood and Kidd (2018) discuss some potential problems of the quality of Indonesia’s professional psychology programs, and offer a scale as a solution.
