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.

40 Days of Dating

Author: Jessica Walsh
Publisher: Abrams
ISBN: 9781613127155
Release Date: 2015-01-20
Genre: Self-Help

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.

Embodying the Self Neurophysiological Perspectives on the Psychopathology of Anomalous Bodily Experiences

Release Date: 2018-04-12
Genre:

Since the beginning of the 20th Century, phenomenology has developed a distinction between lived body (Leib) and physical body (Koerper), a distinction well known as body-subject vs. body-object (Hanna and Thompson 2007). The lived body is the body experienced from within - my own direct experience of my body lived in the first-person perspective, myself as a spatiotemporal embodied agent in the world. The physical body on the other hand, is the body thematically investigated from a third person perspective by natural sciences as anatomy and physiology. An active topic affecting the understanding of several psychopathological disorders is the relatively unknown dynamic existing between aspects related to the body-object (that comprises the neurobiological substrate of the disease) and the body-subject (the experiences reported by patients) (Nelson and Sass 2017). A clue testifying the need to better explore this dynamic in the psychopathological context is the marked gap that still exists between patients’ clinical reports (generally entailing disturbing experiences) and etiopathogenetic theories and therapeutic practices, that are mainly postulated at a bodily/brain level of description and analysis. The phenomenological exploration typically targets descriptions of persons’ lived experience. For instance, patients suffering from schizophrenia may describe their thoughts as alien (‘‘thoughts are intruding into my head’’) and the world surrounding them as fragmented (‘‘the world is a series of snapshots’’) (Stanghellini et al., 2015). The result is a rich and detailed collection of the patients’ qualitative self-descriptions (Stanghellini and Rossi, 2014), that reveal fundamental changes in the structure of experiencing and can be captured by using specific assessment tools (Parnas et al. 2005; Sass et al. 2017; Stanghellini et al., 2014). The practice of considering the objective and the subjective levels of analysis as separated in the research studies design has many unintended consequences. Primarily, it has the effect of limiting actionable neuroscientific progress within clinical practice. This holds true both in terms of availability of evidence-based treatments for the disorders, as well as for early diagnosis purposes. In response to this need, this collection of articles aims to promote an interdisciplinary endeavor to better connect the bodily, objective level of analysis with its experiential corollary. This is accomplished by focusing on the convergence between (neuro) physiological evidence and the phenomenological manifestations of anomalous bodily experiences present in different disorders.

Culture and Health

Author: Malcolm MacLachlan
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.

Stress and Anxiety

Author: Petra Buchwald
Publisher: Logos Verlag Berlin GmbH
ISBN: 9783832516901
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.
