Over the course of a lifetime, people are vulnerable to stress and anxiety in various domains, which may lead to impaired well-being and deteriorated health. To address both aspects, this book comprises two parts which deal with stress, anxiety and coping (1) over the life span and (2) in the context of health promotion. Part one is concerned with stressful person-environment interactions and the ways stress impact upon individual and group functioning in different life phases. For example, sources of adolescents' stress may include school demands and frustrations due to sexuality, while stress among the elderly might be caused by negative thoughts and feelings about physical deterioration and social isolation. Part two is dedicated to recent research on health promotion. Over time, stress and anxiety may lower resistance and make people more vulnerable to illness. From that perspective, antecedents, side effects and consequences of stress that may cause limitations in physical and psychological functioning are investigated, leading to a variety of serious health problems.

Fachbuch aus dem Jahr 2016 im Fachbereich BWL - Unternehmensführung, Management, Organisation, , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Leitung von Teams im monokulturellen Umfeld stellt bereits eine besondere Herausforderung für Manager im betrieblichen Alltag dar. Mit zunehmender Internationalisierung von Teams und einer folglichen Anreicherung der kulturellen Vielfalt erhöht sich entsprechend auch die Leadership-Komplexität. Die Führungspersönlichkeit ist permanent mit vielen „Hürden“ und „Stolpersteinen“ im Umgang mit Menschen konfrontiert. Meist unbewusst werden Fehler verursacht. Oder positiv formuliert: Manager haben es in der Hand, mit einer Verbesserung zum Beispiel ihrer eigenen Wahrnehmung und Anpassung ihres Führungsstils die Produktivität ihres Teams zu optimieren und zu steigern. Leadership ist erlernbar und kann stetig verbessert werden! Man muss es aber wollen. Wie kann man sein Leadership verbessern? Ein Aufsatzpunkt ist, sich seiner „eigenen Realität“ klar zu werden. Wie nehmen Sie Ihre Umwelt wahr? Was scheint für Sie richtig – oder falsch? In jeder Sekunde nehmen unsere persönlichen Sensoren zirka 11 Millionen bits auf (bspw. Töne und Geräusche, Farben, Gerüche, Luftdruckveränderungen). Dies sind zu viele Informationen, um sie in Echtzeit vollumfänglich zu verarbeiten. Unser Gehirn bietet dafür einen sogenannten Wahrnehmungsfilter, der in die drei Bereiche biologisch, psychologisch und sozio-kulturell differenziert werden kann. Nach diesem Wahrnehmungsfilter stehen 40 bits pro Sekunde zur weiteren und bewussten Verarbeitung zur Verfügung. Diese Informationen prägen dann die persönliche Realität. Es existieren also unterschiedliche individuelle Realitäten. Ist Ihre Realität die Richtige? Menschen können ihre Wahrnehmung verändern. Voraussetzung ist, das eigene Wissen, seine Erfahrung und seine Einstellung zu reflektieren und zu bewerten, Schlüsse zu ziehen und zielführende Veränderungen einzuleiten. Psychologen sind der Auffassung, dass es 7 Wochen benötigt, neue Verhaltensmuster und Prozesse zu lernen. Danach sind diese verinnerlicht. Vor diesem Hintergrund ist Leadership erlernbar und kann stetig verbessert werden. Sie müssen es nur wollen! Einen Beitrag soll dieses vorliegende Buch leisten.
When New York–based graphic designers and long-time friends Timothy Goodman and Jessica Walsh found themselves single at the same time, they decided to try an experiment. The old adage says that it takes 40 days to change a habit—could the same be said for love? So they agreed to date each other for 40 days, record their experiences in questionnaires, photographs, videos, texts, and artworks, and post the material on a website they would create for this purpose. What began as a small experiment between two friends became an Internet sensation, drawing 5 million unique (and obsessed) visitors from around the globe to their site and their story since it was launched in July 2013. 40 Days of Dating: An Experiment is a beautifully designed, expanded look at the experiment and the results, including a great deal of material that never made it onto the site, such as who they were as friends and individuals before the 40 days and who they have become since. Note: 40 Days of Dating has a special binding that allows it to open very flat by attaching the endpapers to the inside covers.

Since its first appearance in Germany in 1911, Jews and Modern Capitalism has provoked vehement criticism. As Samuel Z. Klausner emphasizes, the lasting value of Sombart's work rests not in his results-most of which have long since been disproved-but in his point of departure. Openly acknowledging his debt to Max Weber, Sombart set out to prove the double thesis of the Jewish foundation of capitalism and the capitalist foundation of Judaism. Klausner, placing Sombart's work in its historical and societal context, examines the weaknesses and strengths of Jews and Modern Capitalism.

Most Western health professionals practice in multicultural societies. The influence of culture on illness, health and rehabilitation is therefore very important. Despite this, most lower level health psychology texts skim over these differences and assume our traditional biomedical approach will be appropriate for all. In this completely revised and updated edition of a groundbreaking book, Malcolm MacLachlan redresses the balance by showing how social and cultural aspects interact with the purely physical: from assessment and treatment all the way through to effects on rehabilitation.

In his bestselling book Culture's Consequences, Geert Hofstede proposed four dimensions on which the differences among national cultures can be understood: Individualism, Power Distance, Uncertainty Avoidance and Masculinity. This volume comprises the first in-depth discussion of the masculinity dimension and how it can help us to understand differences among cultures. The book begins with a general explanation of the masculinity dimension, and discusses how it illuminates broad features of different cultures. The following parts apply the dimension more specifically to gender (and gender identity), sexuality (and sexual behaviour) and religion, probably the most influential variable of all. Hofstede closes the book

Everywhere, life seems to be speeding up: we talk of &“fast food&” and &“speed dating.&” But what does the phenomenon of social acceleration really entail, and how new is it? While much has been written about our high-speed society in the popular media, serious academic analysis has lagged behind, and what literature there is comes more from Europe than from America. This collection of essays is a first step toward exposing readers on this side of the Atlantic to the importance of this phenomenon and toward developing some preliminary conceptual categories for better understanding it. Among the major questions the volume addresses are these: Is acceleration occurring across all sectors of society and all dimensions of life, or is it affecting some more than others? Where is life not speeding up, and what results from this disparity? What are the fundamental causes of acceleration, as well as its consequences for everyday experience? How does it affect our political and legal institutions? How much speed can we tolerate? The volume tackles these questions in three sections. Part 1 offers a selection of astute early analyses of acceleration as experienced in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Part 2 samples recent attempts at analyzing social acceleration, including translations of the work of leading European thinkers. Part 3 explores acceleration&’s political implications.

vii PREFACE It was 13 years ago that we met for the ?rst time at a German developmental psychology conference. One of us, Wolfgang Friedlmeier (WF), was interested in ontogenetic development from a cross-cultural perspective. He presented a study on the development of empathy and distress in preschool age, dealing with how far children from different cultures respond to comparable demands with different emotions and regulation strategies. The other, Manfred Holodynski (MH), was - terested in ontogenetic development from the perspective of internalization: how processes that are originally socially distributed between persons are transformed into mental processes within the individual. He presented a study on the devel- ment of the emotions pride and shame in preschool age. This led the two of us to discover our common interest in central issues of emotional development: What role do the emotions play in an individual’s activity regulation? What is it exactly that is “developing” when we talk about emotional development? Do emotional processes have a social genesis? And what is the role of the early social interactions between children and their caregivers, along with the obvious fact that individuals grow up and live in completely different cultures? Even at this time, we both already suspected that the social and cultural embedment of the individual would prove to be a key to understanding how the diversity of human emotions and their regulation develop.

Degradation, dehumanization, instrumentalization, humiliation, and nonrecognition – these concepts point to ways in which we understand human beings to be violated in their dignity. Violations of human dignity are brought about by concrete practices and conditions; some commonly acknowledged, such as torture and rape, and others more contested, such as poverty and exclusion. This volume collates reflections on such concepts and a range of practices, deepening our understanding of human dignity and its violation, bringing to the surface interrelationships and commonalities, and pointing to the values that are thereby shown to be in danger. In presenting a streamlined discussion from a negative perspective, complemented by conclusions for a positive account of human dignity, the book is at once a contribution to the body of literature on what dignity is and how it should be protected as well as constituting an alternative, fresh and focused perspective relevant to this significant recurring debate. As the concept of human dignity itself crosses disciplinary boundaries, this is mirrored in the unique range of perspectives brought by the book’s European and American contributors – in philosophy and ethics, law, human rights, literature, cultural studies and interdisciplinary research. This volume will be of interest to social and moral philosophers, legal and human rights theorists, practitioners and students.
