Abstract: Data that serve to support the convergent validity of the Internalizing Symptoms Scale for Children (ISSC), a new child self-report measure for assessing internalizing symptoms, are presented. The results of three studies are presented, wherein ISSC scores were correlated with three established internalizing comparison measures: the Youth Self-Report, the Childrens Depression Inventory, and the Revised Childrens Manifest Anxiety Scale. Correlations were in the desired direction and magnitude for demonstrating the convergent validity of the ISSC as a self-report measure of internalizing symptoms of children. Strong correlations were found between the ISSC and the Internalizing broad-band score of the Youth Self-Report, whereas moderate to moderately high correlations were found between the scores of the ISSC and those of the Childrens Depression Inventory and the Revised Childrens Manifest Anxiety Scale. The ISSC appears to measure the internalizing construct in children and to have ...
Question: How can one determine what shall fill the vacuum created in the process of eliminating self-consciousness?. Krishnamurti: Sir, why do you want to eliminate self-consciousness? Why do you think it is important to dissolve self-consciousness, or that "I", that egotistic limitation? Why do you think it is necessary? If you say it is necessary because you seek happiness, then that self-consciousness, that limited particularity of the ego will still continue. But if you say, "I see conflict, my mind and heart are caught up in disharmony, but I see the cause of this disharmony, which is the lack of understanding of environment which has created that self-consciousness", then there is no void to be filled. I am afraid the questioner has not understood this at all.. Please let me explain this once again. What we call self-consciousness, or that "I" consciousness, is nothing else but the result of environment; that is, when the mind and heart do not understand environment, the surroundings, the ...
There is a tendency to think of self-consciousness as a characteristic theme of specifically modern philosophy - a theme inaugurated by Descartes, subjected to doubt by Hume, transcendentalised by Kant, and set out in social and historical terms by Hegel. This modern tradition persists into recent times, particularly in connection with problems of self-reference and self-identification.. But what about the history of self-consciousness before the modern period? How was self-consciousness understood prior to the seductive Cartesian account which did so much to set the agenda for subsequent discussions? And what is the legacy of these earlier understandings of self-consciousness in the modern and contemporary world? My hope and working hypothesis is that we might enrich our understanding of the phenomena of self-consciousness by recovering some of the history that has been left out of the standard account, and by investigating the range of problems and concerns that emerged there. I focus on three ...

It is also known that the oral administration of L-theanine to rats results in a decrease of serotonin and an increase of catecholamine in the brain. L-Theanine has been confirmed to be safe in animal experiments. We found that the oral intake of L-theanine caused a feeling of relaxation among the human volunteers examined. These observations led us to conduct experiments on the effects of the administration of L-theanine on brain waves. Eight female university students were selected as volunteers. Four of them were ranked as Grade I (the highest anxiety) and the remaining four as Grade V (lowest anxiety) in an investigation done by the manifest anxiety scale ...
Early in her career Janet Taylor Spence told her students that to make a difference in psychology, people had to spend nearly all of their waking time on it. Three decades later, at her inaugural address as the very first president of the American Psychological Society, she talked on workaholism. I caught up with her later in the poster hall, reminded her of her earlier comments, and asked, "Whats the difference between your advice back then and workaholism?" She thought for a moment, perhaps remembering her early work on the Taylor Manifest Anxiety Scale. "Im not sure," she answered, "but I think workaholics do it because they are afraid not to, while great psychologists do it because they love it." Both of her words to the wise can be life-forming, but the later one tells you how to add grace to the process.. Psychology is already fun for you, or you wouldnt be seeking more of it. Even so, at application time, it will help to review. Go back to your General Psychology book and leaf through ...
A look at the following clinical trial: Anxiety in African-American Men With Prostate Cancer: Validation of the Memorial Anxiety Scale for Prostate Cancer in an African-American Sample
Premise 1 is very plausible: after all, the most plausible story about what a conscious computer would be aware of is immediate environmental data through its sensors. Premise 2 is, I think, also plausible for two reasons. First, its hard to see why awareness whose object is expressible in terms of "here" would be harder than awareness whose object is expressible in terms of "I". Thats a bit weak. But, second, it is plausible that the relevant sense of "here" reduces to "I": "the place I am". And if I have the awareness that the temperature in the place I am is 300K, barring some specific blockage, I have the cognitive skills to be aware that my temperature is 300K (though I may need a different kind of temperature sensor).. Premise 3 is, I think, the rub. My acceptance of premise 3 may simply be due to my puzzlement as to what self-consciousness is beyond an awareness of oneself as having certain properties. Heres a possibility, though. Maybe self-consciousness is awareness of ones soul. ...

Theres a small but interesting link at the bottom of the page for Terry Pinkards new translation of Hegels Phenomenology. An advertisement for the book that was run in German newspapers and literary journals in 1807 and was "probably penned by Hegel himself".. Full text of the ad:. This volume is the exposition of the coming-to-be of knowledge. The phenomenology of spirit is supposed to take the place of psychological explanations and also those of abstract discussions about the grounding of knowledge. It examines the PREPARATION for science from a standpoint through which it constitutes a new, interesting philosophy and a "first science" for philosophy. It comprehends within itself the various SHAPES OF SPIRIT as stations on the way through which spirit becomes pure knowledge, that is, absolute spirit. Consequently, the principal sections of this science are examined in terms of the following divisions, which themselves are divided into even more sections: consciousness, self-consciousness, ...

Background: A growing body of literature describes the performance of dental fear questionnaires in various countries. We describe the psychometric properties of Greek versions of the Modified Dental Anxiety Scale (MDAS) and the Dental Fear Survey (DFS) in adult Greek patients. Methods: Greek versions of the MDAS and DFS were administered to two samples of adult dental patients. In the first sample, 195 patients attending one of three private practice dental offices in a large city in Greece completed the questionnaires in the waiting room before dental treatment. After treatment, their dentists (who did not know how the patients had answered the questionnaire) rated their anxiety during dental treatment. In the second sample, 41 patients attending a Greek university dental school clinic completed the questionnaire twice at two separate visits, in order to provide test-retest data. Cronbachs alpha was used to compute the internal consistencies, while Spearmans rho was used to compute the ...
Background Dental anxiety is a widespread problem in many populations. This problem can be a barrier to dental care and may lead to poor oral health. Dental anxiety may be related to psychological status. Aims The aim of the present study was to assess the levels of dental anxiety, dental fear, Beck Depression, and state-trait anxiety according to age, gender and education level in patients at the periodontology clinic in the Diyarbakır Mouth and Dental Health Center. Study Design A total of 231 patients (115 males, 116 females) filled out dental fear scale (DFS), dental anxiety scale (DAS), Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), state-trait anxiety inventory-state (STAI-S), and state-trait anxiety inventory-trait (STAI-T) questionnaires, and evaluations of DFS, DAS, BDI, STAI-S, and STAI-T were conducted according to age, gender, and education level. Results The mean DFS, DAS, BDI, STAI-T, and STAI -S were 45.64, 9.15, 13.16, 38.90, and 40.18, respectively. There was a significant association among DFS, DAS
Purpose: To compare parental perceptions before and after viewing an animation demonstrating a dental injection. Also, parental dental fears were compared with perceptions of their childs dental fears before viewing the animation. Methods: Fifty caregivers of healthy children between 4 to 12 years old seen at a University based pediatric dental clinic were asked to assess their own and their childs dental fears by completing surveys. Surveys were completed before and after watching an animation about dental injections prior to dental treatment. Caregivers rated their childs fears in Dental Subscale of the Childrens Fear Survey Schedule (CFSS-DS). The CFSS-DS consists of 15 questions measuring fear-related items on a Likert scale from 1 to 5, producing a fear score out of 75 points. Caregivers rated their own fears in Modified Dental Anxiety Scale (MDAS) consisting of 5 questions measuring fear in dental situations, producing a fear score out of 25 points. Results: Parental fears corresponded ...
The aim of this chapter is to introduce the reader to the nature and development of dental anxiety and to provide an understanding of how and why patients behave in the way they do. This forms the basis for the practice of conscious sedation in the management of dental anxiety. The latter part of the chapter explains the development of conscious sedation, the accepted definition and the current guidelines relating to the practice of the technique in dental practice.. One of the main indications for the use of conscious sedation for dental care is anxiety. The prevalence of dental anxiety and phobia is high. The 2009 United Kingdom Adult Dental Health Survey indicated that 36% of adults had moderate dental anxiety and a further 12% reported extreme dental anxiety. The significance of dental anxiety as a barrier towards obtaining dental care, particularly as a result of avoidance, is well recognised. It has also been reported that dental anxiety does not just affect the patient but can have a ...
Objective. To evaluate quality-of-life (QoL), before and after cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) in patients diagnosed with intra-oral injection phobia according to DSM-IV and to compare with the general population. This study also aimed to evaluate if QoL was associated with self-reported injection anxiety, dental anxiety, time since last dental treatment and oral health. Materials and methods. Subjects were 55 patients (mean age 35.5 +/- 12.2, 78.2% women) who participated in a treatment study in which 89% managed an intra-oral injection at 1 year follow-up. The patients completed a set of questionnaires including Quality of Life Inventory (QOLI), Injection Phobia Scale-Anxiety, Dental Anxiety Scale and a single-item question assessing self-perceived oral health. Objective measures of oral health and treatment needs were based on clinical examination. QOLI-scores from a non-clinical sample were used for comparison. Results. Before treatment the general and health specific QoL were lower among ...
Objectives: Longitudinal studies considering social disparities in the utilization of dental services are scarce. Repeated measures should be accounted for by the use of appropriate statistical methods. The purpose of this study was first to describe the patterns of less frequent dental attendance (less than once a year) over time from the age of 65-70 in Norwegian and Swedish 1942 cohorts. Second, this study estimated the influence of predisposing, enabling and need-related social predictors using marginal model with robust variance estimators and random intercept model, RIM, to account for the clustered structure of the repeated observations. Third, the study aimed to compare the estimates of associations between social predictors and less frequent dental attendance derived from marginal and random intercept models.. Methods: In 2007 and 2012, all residents born in 1942 in selected counties of Norway and Sweden were invited to participate in a questionnaire survey. In Norway, the response rate ...

AU - Hollenbeak, C. S.. PY - 2012/9. Y1 - 2012/9. N2 - AIM: Eating disorders (ED) in children and younger adolescents are becoming more evident, but there is a small evidence base for their management in this population. We hypothesized that a new family-centered partial hospital program for young patients would be effective in promoting weight gain, as well as improvement in psychiatric symptoms. METHODS: A retrospective chart review of 56 patients treated in the program between August 2008 and November 2009 was performed. Historical data, anthropometric variables and scores from psychological instruments [Childrens Eating Attitudes Test (ChEAT), Childrens Depression Inventory (CDI), and Revised Childrens Manifest Anxiety Scale (RCMAS)] were collected on admission and at discharge. After exclusion, 30 ...

The present study aimed to evaluate the effect of one and five sessions of treatment for intra-oral injection phobia in 55 subjects fulfilling the DSM-IV criteria for specific phobia. The subjects were randomly assigned to one or five sessions of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) performed by dentists. Assessments included behavioural tests and self-report instruments used pretreatment, post-treatment, and at 1 yr of follow-up. The dental anxiety scale (DAS), the injection phobia scale-anxiety, and the mutilation questionnaires were applied. Mean avoidance duration of intra-oral injections before treatment was 7.0 yr. The results showed that 89% of the subjects had received intra-oral injections from a regular dentist during the 1-yr follow-up. The only significant difference between the one- and the five-session groups was that the five-session group reported less anxiety (as measured using the DAS) at 1 yr of follow-up. It was concluded that both treatments performed by dentists specially ...
Is the fear of going to the dentist keeping patients from getting critical healthcare? According to recent studies, the answer is yes. Statistics show that between 9% and 20% of Americans (between 30 and 40 million people) avoid going to the dentist regularly because of Dental Anxiety, the fear of seeking or receiving dental care.. This avoidance can lead to more serious health issues such as gum disease and tooth decay as reported in a JADA (Journal of the American Dental Association) study which found that a patients perception of a dental care experience as painful "… can not only result in poor satisfaction with the therapy but also in the avoidance of necessary treatments, resulting in the deterioration of oral health." This can lead to negative impact on a dentists business, such as revenue loss, lower patient retention rates, and fewer referrals.. With this in mind, one way dentists are increasingly looking to fight the growing problem of dental anxiety is by creating a more calming ...
Christophe Menant writes, "Let me inform you about a submission I just made to AAAI fall 2007 Symposium on AI and Consciousness. Title is Proposal for an Approach to Artificial Consciousness Based on Self-Consciousness (PDF format). It is close to [robots.net] posts made last year on Robot anxiety and consciousness. Feel free to comment." For those not familiar with Menants research, he proposes that consciousness (in the phenomenal sense) evolved from self-consciousness, which in turn evolved from self-representation. He believes using self-consciousness rather than phenomenal consciousness as a reference model will be a more productive route to developing artificial consciousness. This could also lead to interesting new ideas for robot perception and behavior ...

Dental anxiety is definitely an affliction endured by millions. Although some instances tend to be more severe than the others, most of the people impacted by dental anxiety dread their biannual dental professional visits. Regardless of how skilled their particular dentists are, dental sufferers of anxiety find standard checkups and cleanings deeply uncomfortable. While most of them simply bite the bullet and obtain their teeth washed every six several weeks, a considerable quantity of them elect to not receive regular checkups. Its hardly unusual for those who have extreme dental anxiety to visit years - sometimes decades - between dental professional visits.. When battling with dental anxiety, its vital that you avoid letting your fear overtake you. Doing this not just stands to break into the healthiness of the teeth - but additionally your whole mouth. After skipping a couple of cleanings and suffering no readily apparent effects, certain people arrived at this misguided conclusion they no ...
