Â Apparently they didn’t sell as well as the strapped version — the sales person I talked to said the complaints she’d heard were that the velcro version causes the packy to hang too low.

Is your positive social identity hopelessly tied to the belief that only lazy hippies smoke the tweed that’s what we like to call it back home. Or, and more likely the case, is it simply a social convention that has been turned into a moral convention See Turiel, 2007 by, well, you squares. I think so….

Results: Discernible clusters of obese persons body-mass index, 30 were present in the network at all time points, and the clusters extended to three degrees of separation. These clusters did not appear to be solely attributable to the selective formation of social ties among obese persons. A person's cha...

An experimental drug showed promising results in treating the key symptom of social withdrawal in people with Fragile X syndrome, the most common known inherited cause of autism with intellectual disability, according to a recent clinical trial. The new study, published in Science Translational Medicine, hints that arbaclofen could be the first drug to treat symptoms of Fragile X and other autism spectrum disorders, and even other conditions involving social avoidance. In previous studies of mice that are missing the FMR1 gene and show autistic symptoms like repetitive behavior and social avoidance, arbaclofen has been able to treat these problem...

Is the School Required to Provide Social Skills Training. 05/07/12 by Wrightslaw. My daughter with autism needs help with social skills. She gets 90 minutes of social skills counseling a month. I think she needs to learn “hands on” in class, lunch, or recess, not in the “office.”. Is the school required to provide social skills training? Would this be considered a related service.

Mice become profoundly anti-social when the creation of new brain cells is interrupted in adolescence, a surprising finding that may help researchers understand schizophrenia and other mental disorders, Yale researchers report. The Yale team decided to explore the function of these new brain cells in mice of different ages. However, adult mice that had neurogenesis blocked during adolescence showed no interest in exploring other adult mice and even evaded attempts made by other mice to engage in social behavior. “These mice acted like they did not recognize other mice as mice,” Kaffman said. Blocking adult neurogenesis had no effect on social behavior, suggesting t...

DIY Brainless Robots Exhibit Collective Behavior.

We’ve all seen the amazing capabilities of flocks of birds and schools of fish to move seemingly as one. A lot of research is going into figuring out how swarm behavior works in order to mimic nature’s capabilities in swarm robotics. The ability of an individual agent to participate in collective behavior is often linked to cognition and social interaction implying that swarmbots require computational power and a sensor to function. But now scientists of Harvard university have demonstrated that brainless robots self-organize into coherent collective motion. The robots used in the experiment are BristleBots Bbots. These are very simple robots anyone can build for $5 from a toothbrush, a pager motor and a battery. When the brush head is pressed to the ground, the angled bristles give it forwar...

*  Farm Social Groupings
... Social Groupings within farm animals The social behaviour of farm animals is an important aspect of their sentience. Farm animals in natural conditions have quite complex social lives and social conventions. Living in groups requires awareness and understanding of the behaviour of others, and the ability to manage social interactions. Animal behaviour scientists have studied and compared the social lives of farm animals in natural, semi-natural and intensive farming conditions. In spite of thousands of years of domestic use, and decades of intensive breeding and farming, experts agree that the basic behaviour patterns and motivation of farm animals has changed little compared to their wild ancestors. Farmed pigs and chickens can revert to wild behaviour without difficulty. Cattle, pigs, sheep and chickens naturally live in herds or flocks. Many commercial farming methods cause social problems by joining unnaturally large numbers of animals together, changing or splitting up groups and mixing them with ot...

... The ASMR Experiment. ASMR and social grooming. In previous posts I described a theory of ASMR check out the ASMR theory tag on the right side of this page ; my conclusion is that ASMR is primarly drived by triggers' precision, which leads us to a state of physical and mental stillness : a condition whose importance is often ignored in the West, but widely recognized by traditional cultures. Now it's time to look at a phenomenon which can sometimes lead to ASMR: grooming. Note: linking ASMR to biology may sound strange, as I previously supported a theory which explains this phenomenon in terms of acoustics and brain waves. Social grooming. Grooming is - according to etologists - the way members of some animal species take care of each other, primarly for igienic purposes; in some species, however, grooming becomes an important social activity. The first example is massage; even in this case the ASMR effect is not directly connected to the task, and it only takes place when a massage is "tingle-oriented" b...

Obese adults are admitted to the hospital more frequently and for more days than adults who are normal weight, finds a new study that looks at how being obese leads to a need for more health care services. The study also finds that duration of obesity—how long an adult has been obese—has a direct impact on length of hospitalization. “A somewhat surprising result in our study was the fact that the length of time a person has been obese makes a much bigger impact than how severe the obesity actually is.” The study appears in the December issue of the Journal of Health and Social Behavior, a peer-reviewed scientific publication of the American Sociological Association. On average, obese adults had about 3.22 hospital stays in a 20-year period compared with 2.47 stays for the normal-w...

Hi I live in an area in england with one of the highest levels of autism in the uk we have lots of so called facilities and professionals but nothing in the way of treatment facilities, I was told after diagnosis that there is no cure, no way forward which I found pretty depressing, reading about your lack of even a social interaction group has made me feel even more strongly that we need as mothers to help our children ourselves and take treatment, therapies, and our children’s social needs into our own capable hands thanks you are an inspiration and your strength shines through I believe God in his infinite wisdom has blessed me with my autistic son he is a constant joy and has...

By John Breeskin, PhD, ABPP. The event that I am writing about has happened to me three times in 50 years of running groups and, as far as I'm concerned, this is three times too many. I do wish, however, to provide guidance to my colleagues in terms of the issues involved in order to give them a systematic way of looking at this possible event. Eric, a mid-20s young man, was a member of my men's group. He sought our help in order to respectfully terminate a relationship that he felt was no longer viable. His soon-to-be ex-wife ...

Positive social relationships in childhood and adolescence are key to adult well-being, according to Associate Professor Craig Olsson from Deakin University and the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute in Australia, and his colleagues. In contrast, academic achievement appears to have little effect on adult well-being.

Friends' support can help cancer patients. Friends' support can help cancer patients. Ask questions, but stay positive. Of course, relationships are affected during a disease as devastating as breast cancer, but we have some control over whether this effect is negative or positive. Even though you may not know what to say in a given moment or what to do in a given situation, experts remind us the relationship that counts is with the person, not with the illness. Breast cancer is one of the most commonly found types of cancer. A woman's concept of breast cancer may color all her interactions, making it difficult to relate normally. According to studies, attitude can affect treatment and have real consequences in terms of well-being and survival. Certainly the most important thing anyone can do to support a friend or relative with breast cancer is to be there while she begins to navigate the grueling course of treatment, recovery and ongoing lifestyle adjustments. Each woman's ability to deal with cancer differ...

Online contributes to the diversity of social networks. Some years ago there was interest in the possibility of what was known as ‘cyber-balkanisation’ – the expectation that online activity would create silos of communities of interest at the expense of diversity of networks; and perhaps that local communities based on face-to-face contact might atrophy as a direct consequence. I even wrote an article for the New Statesman about it, it must have been at least ten years ago. Now here ’s research to confirm that social networks are not less diverse when mediated by online, and that online use makes a ‘positive and substantive total contribution’ to network diversity and hence to the social capital that is accessible through personal networks. This is the most recent output from Keith Hampton and his colleagues based on the data collected for the Pew Internet and American Life Project which has grabbed our attention a couple of times in the past, here and here. The argument goes something like this....

Social Network Theory and Physician Prescribing Behavior. March 23rd, 2011. Sources: MIT Technology Rev., WSJ Health Blog Subjects: Providers, Social media. Tweet. Several years ago, scientists led by Harvard’s Nicholas Christakis showed how happiness and obesity can spread through social networks. The team showed for example, that when certain people gained weight, the chances increased that others in their social network would also gain weight. Similar analyses have mapped-out the impact of social networks on influenza outbreaks and cigarette smoking. Now, Christakis has teamed-up with Larry Miller to create MedNetworks, a company that uses the same network mapping methods to identify physicians that most strongly influence their colleagues when it comes to prescribing drugs. If their work proves successful, they will surely find plenty of drug makers who will pay for their insights. The Boston-based start-up relies on medical claims data for its mapping studies. It claims to be able to track growth in t...

(1/418) Measuring intermediate outcomes of violence prevention programs targeting African-American male youth: an exploratory assessment of the psychometric properties of six psychosocial measures.

This study examined the psychometric properties of six psychosocial measures that may be useful indicators of intermediate outcomes of violence prevention programs targeting African-American male youth. Baseline and 6 month follow-up survey data are used from 223 African-American male 12-16 year olds participating in a violence prevention program evaluation study. The constructs of interest are beliefs supporting aggression, aggressive conflict-resolution style, hostility, ethnic identity, self-esteem and hopelessness. Each construct is measured as a multi-item scale. Exploratory factor analysis results provided limited support for the unidimensionality of these scales, thus suggesting that further scale development is warranted. Reliability coefficients for the scales ranged from 0.55 to 0.80. Bivariate analyses with baseline data indicate that all six measures have construct and criterion-related validity, as they are associated with each other and with four behavioral criteria in the expected directions. Predictive validity was also demonstrated for beliefs supporting aggression, aggressive conflict-resolution style, hostility and hopelessness which were associated with weapon-carrying behaviors measured in the 6 month follow-up survey both before and after controlling for corresponding behaviors measured in the baseline survey.  (+info)

(2/418) A method in search of a theory: peer education and health promotion.

Peer education has grown in popularity and practice in recent years in the field of health promotion. However, advocates of peer education rarely make reference to theories in their rationale for particular projects. In this paper the authors review a selection of commonly cited theories, and examine to what extent they have value and relevance to peer education in health promotion. Beginning from an identification of 10 claims made for peer education, each theory is examined in terms of the scope of the theory and evidence to support it in practice. The authors conclude that, whilst most theories have something to offer towards an explanation of why peer education might be effective, most theories are limited in scope and there is little empirical evidence in health promotion practice to support them. Peer education would seem to be a method in search of a theory rather than the application of theory to practice.  (+info)

(3/418) Social capital and self-rated health: a contextual analysis.

OBJECTIVES: Social capital consists of features of social organization--such as trust between citizens, norms of reciprocity, and group membership--that facilitate collective action. This article reports a contextual analysis of social capital and individual self-rated health, with adjustment for individual household income, health behaviors, and other covariates. METHODS: Self-rated health ("Is your overall health excellent, very good, good, fair, or poor?") was assessed among 167,259 individuals residing in 39 US states, sampled by the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System. Social capital indicators, aggregated to the state level, were obtained from the General Social Surveys. RESULTS: Individual-level factors (e.g., low income, low education, smoking) were strongly associated with self-rated poor health. However, even after adjustment for these proximal variables, a contextual effect of low social capital on risk of self-rated poor health was found. For example, the odds ratio for fair or poor health associated with living in areas with the lowest levels of social trust was 1.41 (95% confidence interval = 1.33, 1.50) compared with living in high-trust states. CONCLUSIONS: These results extend previous findings on the health advantages stemming from social capital.  (+info)

(4/418) Student-school bonding and adolescent problem behavior.

Adolescent problem behavior, including substance use, school misconduct and delinquency, is a national concern. Implicit in the concept of middle school is the recognition that students who develop positive social bonds with their school are more likely to perform well academically, and refrain from misconduct and other antisocial behavior. However, little scientific attention has been given to the complex interactions between middle school students and the school environment. Prior to implementing a middle school problem behavior prevention program we conducted a survey in the seven middle schools in one US school district. Out of 4668 grade 6-8 students enrolled, 4263 (91.3%) completed the survey. Student-school bonding was positively correlated with school adjustment (r = 0.49) and perceived school climate (r = 0.77), but inversely correlated with problem behavior (r = -0.39 to -0.43). Problem behavior was significantly higher (P < 0.001) among males than females and among students in higher grades. Conversely, school bonding, climate and adjustment were significantly higher (P < 0.001) among females than males, but declined significantly from one grade to the next. The data support the conclusion that school bonding is associated with problem behavior. We describe the development of a multiple-component intervention in middle schools designed to increase student-school bonding and prevent problem behavior.  (+info)

(5/418) Identity in adolescent survivors of childhood cancer.

OBJECTIVE: To investigate identify formation among adolescent survivors of childhood cancer. Family functioning, perceived emotional support from family and peers, life stress, and anxiety produced by the cancer experience also were examined as they influenced identity development. METHOD: Participants were 52 adolescent survivors and their mothers recruited from a medical center and 42 healthy adolescent counterparts and their mothers recruited from the community. RESULTS: A greater frequency of survivors than their healthy peers was found within the foreclosed identity status. Factors associated with the foreclosed identity status included the cancer diagnosis, symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and family functioning characterized by greater levels of conflict. CONCLUSIONS: Data were interpreted to suggest that the foreclosed identity status may serve a protective function in assisting survivors to cope with the stressors of the cancer experience.  (+info)

(6/418) Cross-cultural analysis of eventfulness in the lives of people with schizophrenia.

Eventfulness as a strategy for creating a meaningful life is an important component of the attempts of people with schizophrenia to present a positive self-image. This study of patients with schizophrenia shows that the phenomenon of creating eventfulness through normalcy accounts is relevant cross-culturally, with common themes occurring in the speech of participants from Papua New Guinea and New Zealand. Both patient (n = 23) and nonpatient (n = 27) participants from these two countries were interviewed as part of a larger research project. Conversational speech of participants was analyzed for passages that could be defined as normalcy accounts. A total of 61 such accounts were obtained from the conversational samples. The three most common themes of normalcy accounts (educational achievement and goals, national pride, and travel) were characteristic of the self-presentation of nonpatient subjects as well as patients with schizophrenia. Normalcy themes varied slightly depending on nationality and patient or nonpatient status. The similarity of both normalcy account themes and presentation, however, was remarkably consistent across cultures.  (+info)

(7/418) Direct and moderating effects of community context on the psychological well-being of African American women.

The effects of community characteristics on well-being were examined among 709 African American women. Direct and moderating effects of neighborhood characteristics on distress were tested. Aggregate-level ratings of neighborhood cohesion and disorder were significantly related to distress, although the relation between cohesion and distress became nonsignificant when individual risk factors were statistically controlled. Aggregate-level neighborhood variables interacted significantly with individual risk and resource variables in the prediction of distress, consistent with trait-situation interaction theories (D. Magnusson & N. S. Endler, 1977). Community cohesion intensified the benefits of a positive life outlook. Community disorder intensified both the benefits of personal resources and the detrimental effects of personal risk factors. Results showed evidence of resilience among African American women.  (+info)

(8/418) Socioeconomic inequality in voting participation and self-rated health.

OBJECTIVES: This study tested the hypothesis that disparities in political participation across socioeconomic status affect health. Specifically, the association of voting inequality at the state level with individual self-rated health was examined. METHODS: A multilevel study of 279,066 respondents to the Current Population Survey (CPS) was conducted. State-level inequality in voting turnout by socioeconomic status (family income and educational attainment) was derived from November CPS data for 1990, 1992, 1994, and 1996. RESULTS: Individuals living in the states with the highest voting inequality had an odds ratio of fair/poor self-rated health of 1.43 (95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.22, 1.68) compared with individuals living in the states with the lowest voting inequality. This odds ratio decreased to 1.34 (95% CI = 1.14, 1.56) when state income inequality was added and to 1.27 (95% CI = 1.10, 1.45) when state median income was included. The deleterious effect of low individual household income on self-rated health was most pronounced among states with the greatest voting and income inequality. CONCLUSIONS: Socioeconomic inequality in political participation (as measured by voter turnout) is associated with poor self-rated health, independently of both income inequality and state median household income.  (+info)


What duties does a social worker do in the emergency room department?


I will be interviewing for a social worker position in the emergency room department, night shift. I'd like to be prepared for the interview by knowing what the social worker would being in this position.
----------

Some assist in supporting victims of crime, accidents and the families. They also help people bought in with no place to live, no benefits and counseling relatives when the patient dies. Being a social worker in an emergency room , especially on night duty is a very stressful job, and you need a strong stomach and character to deal with people in a time of personal tragedy and crisis. You will deal with reporting abused children and also telling the parents. You will also have to finish your work and leave it at the door if you want to not burn out, as you will meet many people who due to circumstances, budget, time restraints and job limits you are unable to help even though you know that you were there last chance.

A very important part is to have a very good knowledge of the various health laws. Also a very strong collection of resources to direct people to so they can get help from suitable places in the morning.

VIP, you cannot save everyone and some people despite asking for help do not really want it or use it.

Be prepared that they may give you a scenario and ask you what you would do. 


How has social stratification influenced the quest to determine Pellagra's underlying dietary cause?


(Social stratification is the hierarchical separation of a population into various groups, generally based on income, race, educational achievement, or family background. Some strata are “upper”; others are “lower.”)
----------

Are you a minority? Sounds kinda like a case of social B.S. The cure is usually watch less T.V. Study hard,stay open eared and closed mouthed ,smile at your opponents, Is Pellagra's a who or an it? dietary cause? WTF?  Hope your brain don't explode,poindexter.


What clinical skills are required in the provision of contemporary social work to patients in a hospital?


Need to describe examples of when social workers have demonstrated a high level of clinical skills in the provision of contemporary social work services to patients and their families within an acute hospital setting.  Need to know what the social workers did.
----------

Social workers help in cases such as death/dying. Take a patient who does not have the potential of full recovery, the doctors, social workers and family sometimes the patient as well have what is called a family meeting. The social worker then explains exactly what the physician said but in words that a patient would understand. Sometimes a Doctor can say something and it is mistaken in the form of false hope. Social workers also play a huge roll with insurance, and finding further placement for that patient if needed, they are responsible for obtaining the patient home health if needed. Most of the social workers that I work with are/were nurses who wanted a change in career, so they do have a lot of medical background.


How do personally balance your family life with your social life after having children?


When I say social life, I mean literally leaving the home to see friends, etc.  I'm just interested to hear other's opinions.
Desmeran- I added you as a contact and I hope you don't mind.  What you said to me a few days earlier was good information and I just wanted to thank you.
----------

most of the time that i'm with friends our kids are playing together and we're hanging out while watching them. and that comes out to quite a bit of social time for an introvert like me.  we have also twice gone on vacation with other couples whose kids are the same ages as ours.

but i'm married; my husband and i are in this parenting thing together; and we each are happy to watch the kids sometimes so that the other gets a chance for some grownup time.  usually i want that time totally to myself but once a month i go out with a group of neighborhood moms and very occasionally i will use my time to myself for some other social thing.

we also have a great babysitter whom our kids adore, plus my parents recently moved reasonably nearby.  so once in a while we'll go out as a couple and do things ... again, usually just the two of us, but sometimes with friends.  probably the latter once every three or four months.

*i'm relieved that you took it in the spirit in which i meant it.  and i'm fine with anyone who doesn't delete my q&as adding me as a contact.


How much do you get from your monthly social security disability payments?


How much does your monthly Social Security Disability pay?
I know it depends on how long you worked, but How much is it in dollars? Like what it a person worked for 5 or 10 years before they started getting disability? About how much would they get a month? And I assume you also get food stamps in addition to the disability payments? Is that true? Or do they expect the person to use their disability payments for food?
----------

There are great calculators on the SSA website. The amount of Social Security Disability you receive is based on your income when you became disabled. 

Look mid-page the disability calculator is there:

Good luck!


How do you go about filing for social security disability for a mental disorder?


I think I have social anxiety disorder or something like that. Have not left my house in over a year, running out of money, need help. Not currently seeing a therapist.

I have extremely bad case of social anxiety, besides medication and therapy are there other ways to overcome i?


I didn't  know what it was at first I thought it was just "shyness" and that I would grow out of it well I developed social anxiety. I consider it a extreme case because it causes skip classes (college) to avoid during presentation and other "social activities". I was actually suppose to graduate already but I'm still in school because this issue. My major is social work irronically and I don't want to change it because I really want to help people but it would be impossible to do with the level of anxiety I feel in social settings.

you can overcome this........i have.........listen to your therapist......it takes work........it is awful having it.......It still crops up occassionally when I am shopping in a mall or in a grocery store. Basically you have to expose yourself to what is uncomfortable. I started at first just imagining being in a social situation.....that even made me uncomfortable. Just the thought of it. Then you work your way slowly.......exposing yourself to uncomfortable situations. the funny thing is after a while because you have practiced it.........it isn't uncomfortable anymore. finish the degree and you'll figure it out after you graduate. good luck :)


How can I get treatment for social anxiety?


I've displayed several symptoms of social anxiety/phobia, but I don't have any health insurance so I can't seek professional help. I live in California - is there a program of some sort that can help me with this, that doesn't require insurance?

 View the information and weblinks for social anxiety/shyness, and self confidence, in sections 9, and 38, at http://www.ezy-build.net.nz/~shaneris  Here is an exercise that can help you. It is called "Act as If." When you are in a social situation, act as if you are outgoing. Talk more, smile at everyone, ask questions, speak in a normal or excited tone, not a meek tone. Watch some of your outgoing peers, and imitate the style of their social behavior.

Research shows that when you "act as if" continually, your image of yourself begins to conform to your new behavior. In this case, you will gain self-esteem and self-confidence, and begin to see yourself as socially normal, not shy. You will become more socially successful, and this will motivate you to continue your new social behavior until it becomes a habit.

Try this for a month, in every situation you can. I am confident that you will become much more comfortable and outgoing. One form of therapy is to go somewhere that nobody knows you, and deliberately make an utter fool of yourself: put on a paper hat, and scream out: "I'm queen/king of America!", or something else ridiculous, then get back in the taxi, (warn the driver of your intentions, first) or car, and leave.      

      People will point, and say: "Look at that idiot". But, you're probably not up to the stage where you can do that, yet (I can, and I used to be shy). It will teach you that, although it isn't actually pleasant, you will survive; be stronger for the experience, and the next time (should you need to repeat this type of therapy) will be considerably easier. Remember: "A fear avoided is a fear strengthened; a fear faced is a fear reduced." Regard it as your final test: once you have accomplished it, the barrier will be broken; just don't go too far, the other way! Learn to laugh at yourself, and give a big, cheesy grin when others see you do something foolish, as we all do, occasionally. It is endearing, if you don't do it too often. Use positive affirmations: for example: "I am very likable and other people feel comfortable around me".      

      Write down all of your self limiting beliefs; then write down the positive counter of them, (exact opposite) and repeat them and imprint them into your mind.
Most importantly: Force yourself to approach somebody and initiate some sort of communication. Start out small by asking the time and directions and gradually go bigger.

 Although there are anti-anxiety medications (anxiolytics) available, these come with risks, and the possibility of side effects, habituation, even addiction, and withdrawal problems, and are unsuitable for young people. 

Try having a cup of "Tension Tamer", herbal tea, by Celestial Seasonings, (from supermarket tea, or health food aisles) or make some at home, and cool, then bottle, and drink as needed (I find it so strong tasting, that I need to drink it quickly, followed by something like fruit juice, to take away the taste, but others may find it more tolerable). C(h)amomile tea is a more palatable option. As with all herbal/green teas, use lemon/lime, and/or a little sweetener (NOT ARTIFICIAL!!!) but no cream, or milk.  

     Xylitol, or Stevia is preferable, (health food stores) or fruit sugar (fructose, such as "Fruisana", from supermarket sugar aisles) or even a little honey, because these will reduce "sugar spikes". Valerian has also been recommended, but some people experience "valerian hangovers". Ensure you know how you react to it, before doing something potentially dangerous, like going out on the roads. The idea is to use the above like water wings, to provide initial, short term support, while you become proficient in the above techniques.
