Genre: Students

The current volume in the Stress and Anxiety series focuses on peer-reviewed papers in four thematically different areas. The first collection of papers relates to a range of issues in schools and school children: stress and coping among preschoolers, among children aged 7-11 years and those children with at risk behaviours and those experiencing test anxiety, as well as stress and intention to quit among teachers. Next is the impact of stress on people's well-being in particular stress, and economic deprivation in particular, as predictors of depression and on cardiovascular reactivity. Coping, including resilience and adjustment, is addressed in the third section where there is an emphasis on appraisal, cognitions and comedy. The final chapters are contemporaneous as they present two opposing views on the internet and cyberspace: the internet as social support coping, alternatively as an escape or avoidant strategy.

F hrung internationaler Teams Das ROSKAB Leadership Modell

Author: Reinhold Kohler
Publisher: GRIN Verlag
ISBN: 9783668357051
Release Date: 2016-12-05
Genre: Business & Economics

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.

Stress and Anxiety

Release Date: 2008
Genre: Psychology

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.

Culture and Health

Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9780470035689
Release Date: 2006-05-01
Genre: Psychology

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.

Child Care and Culture

Author: Robert A. Levine
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 052157546X
Release Date: 1996-09-13
Genre: Psychology

Child Care and Culture examines parenthood, infancy, and early childhood in an African community, revealing patterns unanticipated by current theories of child development and raising provocative questions about the concept of "normal" child care. Comparing the Gusii people of Kenya with the American white middle class, the authors show how divergent cultural priorities create differing conditions for early childhood development. Combining the perspectives of social anthropology, pediatrics, and developmental psychology, the authors demonstrate how child care customs can be responsive to varied socioeconomic, demographic, and cultural conditions without inflicting harm on children. This text will be of interest to researchers in child development and anthropology.

High speed Society

Author: Hartmut Rosa
Publisher: Penn State Press
ISBN: 9780271047706
Release Date: 2010-11-01
Genre: Science

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.
