Resumo

LEITE, ÂNGELA et al. Psychological well-being and health perception: predictors for past, present and future. Arch. Clin. Psychiatry (São Paulo) [online]. 2019, vol.46, n.3, pp.53-60.  Epub 29-Jul-2019. ISSN 1806-938X.  https://doi.org/10.1590/0101-60830000000194.

Background

Increasing evidence supports an association between psychological well-being and overall health, however, much remains to be understood about this association. The current study addresses this issue by presenting a new perspective focusing on health perceptions. Additionally, it examines the impact of each of six dimensions of psychological well-being on health perception.

Methods

Data for this study were collected from a sample of 1,155 Portuguese adults in various settings. Findings reveal that psychological well-being dimensions' impact differently on prior, current, and health outlookperceptions. Furthermore, the dimension depressed mood influences current health perception; in turn, current health perception is the strongest predictor for psychological well-being. Our results provide support for a bidirectional relationship between health perception and psychological well-being.

Palavras-chave : Psychological well-being; health perception; prior health perception; current health perception; health outlook perception.
