Parents play a key role in a child’s physical, mental, emotional, social, and psychological well-being. Parents give shape to the child’s personality and it solely depends on Parenting style or the way they brought up their children.
Psychology is the scientific study of mind and behavior. Psychology includes the study of conscious and unconscious phenomena, including feelings and thoughts. It is an academic discipline of immense scope, crossing the boundaries between the natural and social sciences. Psychologists seek an understanding of the emergent properties of brains, linking the discipline to neuroscience. As social scientists, psychologists aim to understand the behavior of individuals and groups.
The psychology of language deals with the cognitive functions which include perception, memory, thinking, volition, emotion, and behavior. It focuses on the three acts of mental processes: language comprehension, language production, and language acquisition. The psychological study of language dealing with the relationship between the linguistic behavior and psychological processes is called psycholinguistics. Perception has something to do with our senses while memory talks about storing, retaining, and retrieval of information. Meanwhile, there are many types of thinking such as perceptual or concrete, conceptual or abstract, reflective, creative, critical, and non-directive or associative thinking. Volition serves as the initial stage of will. Emotion and feeling are often used interchangeably. What separates them from each other is time. Behavior exhibits with some kind of a discipline, manners, etiquettes, and personality. Finally, language comprehension deals with language perception, word knowledge, figurative language, and pragmatics. A glimpse of some psycholinguistic 25 terms is also included in this unit. Of course, the skits (Skit 1-8) articulated the psychological viewpoints of the topics presented.
The importance of leadership in the foundation and legitimization of an organization is a pressing issue in organizational studies. This book, Leadership in the formation of an organization, which focuses on an organizational case study – the formation of Asilo de Infância Desvalida da Horta (a foster organization for girls and young women), in the Azores, Portugal, seeks to contribute to the analysis the relative autonomy that leadership faces and which it has to deal with in the search for its legitimacy as an organization. The book concludes with the reproduction of a booklet, dated 1884, titled Memória histórica sobre o Asilo de Infância Desvalida da Cidade da Horta [Historical memory on Asilo de Infância Desvalida da Cidade da Horta], which offers relevant arguments of this study. Furthermore, in addition to the analysis put forth here, its facsimile availability in digital version is deemed pertinent.
Cognitive science is a highly interdisciplinary field of scientific study of the human mind and its structure, processes, and complexities. As it pertains to cognition, it combines the ideas and methods from other disciplines related to intelligence and behavior which include psychology, education, artificial intelligence, anthropology, sociology, neuroscience, computer science, computational linguistics, philosophy, and linguistics in general. Cognitive science basically focuses on how the human mind works with regard to language acquisition, memory, perception, and other forms and contents characterizing the nature of human knowledge beyond preferences and biases. Psycholinguistics is part of the field of cognitive science being a combination of psychology and linguistics
This study guide tackles about what is in the undergraduate seminar course in which students are expected to present a seminar paper as the ultimate course outcome. Moreover, it presents what’s in the bigger picture, and that is, presenting the student’s research study in academic conferences and getting their research work published. When we talk about academic conferences and meetings, we don’t mean that students are to present their full-blown research study or their complete research outline. In this course (Undergraduate Seminar), the students are to present only their thesis outline. However, students are given salient points to look forward once they have completed their research study. Nowadays, knowing some terms and phrases are just one click away with the internet and Google, and signal, of course. Nevertheless, we will “spell out” some of the terms and phrases related to our subject (Undergraduate Seminar) in this study guide for fluidity sake.
It is very strange that there is no trace of economic pathology in economics which regards the economy as an organism. As even a human body, an excellent organism, occasionally gets sick, the economy, an organism, also gets occasionally an economic disease. Rather the economy gets sick more often in the life cycle of the economy than that of a human body since the organic function of the former is inferior to that of the latter, needless to say the immune system. The economic pathology should have been established and advanced already as the pathology has been done for human body. Indeed, the pathology for human body is developed more than its physiology and divided several parts which also have advanced in depth and diversity. So, there is no reason that the economic pathology is neglected in economics of which theoretical system is alike that of physiology. Indeed, economics has got its birth and development affected directly by the natural science. In the late 18th century when the modern economics was established as an academic discipline, the natural science was in the limelight and its organic approach was naturally introduced into economics, which is proved by the fact that the theoretical systems of all the economic schools have been established organically, and the development of economics is closely related to that of natural science. So, this organic approach is common for all the schools such as neoclassical economics, Marxian economics, Keynesian economics, institutional economics, historical economics, behavioral economics, complex economics, and so on.
All the best stories begin with once upon a time. In science however, since time has a habit of speeding up, slowing down or even maybe going backwards locally, depending on how fast you are travelling, how much stuff surrounds you or your temperature; we will start at the beginning – wherever that is. Some time, long ago, Alice and Bob, two post-doc students, persuaded their friends Chloe and David to go for a ride in their black ford Anglia to nowhere in particular as long as it was a sunny day and they ended up on an enchanted island. All four were multi-disciplinary scientists in Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Cosmology, Geology, Material Science and heaven knows what other branches besides including neuroscience and psychology. “To begin with,” began Alice “the first thing to remember is that atoms and molecules – all the stuff we’re made of – and all the matter we know about like the Earth, planets,stars and galaxies are far more intelligent than human beings. They’ve been around so much longer than we have and they’ve learned so much more during that time.” “That’s why” said Bob agreeing with her “we as scientists need models of scientific theory to explain how things work and make predictions which can then be tested. This is where theories have to be modified, falsified or verified otherwise you end up saying something is just because it is and having arguments.” “Let’s have a look in more detail then about those atoms and the description of their structure” interjected Chloe warming to the conversation. David on the other hand remained silent. This was boring basic science and he dozed off though earwigging at the same time.
Studies of parasuicide in the general population indicate that where there is one person committing suicide, there is a possibility of 8-10 people that fail, and mental illness is one of the major contributors to suicide. This study was an archival epidemiological survey to determine the prevalence of parasuicide in relation to demographic variables and related mental disorders. Files of 248 patients who were admitted at Butabika Hospital because of parasuicide were analyzed. Most patients came from Kampala District, tended to be young (15-39 years), came from the student population and were unmarried. Common methods used were hanging, drowning, self poisoning and overdose. Women tended to use less physical lethal methods. Many of the subjects suffered from more than one mental disorder
