Designing training programs for the development of emotional intelligence in adolescents with behavioral problems

Designing training programs for the development of emotional intelligence in adolescents with behavioral problems

In this article, deviant behavior is considered as a combination of different manifestations of personality, leading eventually to its social desaptation. It is shown that an effective method of preventing deviant behavior is psychological training. Group training activity helps to solve the problems associated with the development of various behavioral skills, to provide psychological support, and can be used as a means of psychological work with teenagers with behavioral problems. We discuss the basic points required to effectively create and conduct training programs in general, as well as the challenges and opportunities of designing trainings in order to develop emotional intelligence as a method of prevention of deviant behavior.

Emotional intelligence and features of social and psychological adaptation in adolescents with deviant behavior

Emotional intelligence and features of social and psychological adaptation in adolescents with deviant behavior

The problem of social-psychological adaptation of adolescents with deviant behavioral today is of particular relevance in relation to the current process of restructuring of educational institutions - the merging of general and specialized schools for adolescents with behavioral problems in a unified educational complexes. In these circumstances it is necessary to find an efficient tool that will simultaneously accelerate the process of adaptation and have a positive preventive effect. In this article, the author shows that such a tool can become the emotional intelligence as a construct that includes various abilities of the emotional sphere. The main hypothesis of the study was that the socio-psychological adaptation of adolescents with deviant behavior has its own characteristics, different from the norm group, and is interconnected with the components of emotional intelligence. The study was conducted on the basis of general education school № 2077 formed by the merger of five educational institutions: the former school № 738, № 703, № 702, № 7 and № 77. The study involved 222 teenagers from 14 to 16 years (111 girls and 111 boys).

Indicators of Emotional and Behavioral Problems in Adolescents: Evaluation among Multiple Informants

Indicators of Emotional and Behavioral Problems in Adolescents: Evaluation among Multiple Informants

It is worth noting that the literature has indicated the need for the use of multiple informants in the evaluation of emotional and behavioral problems in order to provide a more detailed picture of these problems in different contexts. And also to guide potentially effective interventions, as well as to minimize the influence of the various expectations and possible biases of researchers (Gomez, Vance, & Gomez, 2014; Rescorla, 2016), but there is still a lack of studies in the area. In this perspective, family members and teachers, because they belong to important development contexts, such as family and school, are privileged observers of the behavior of children and adolescents (Major & Seabra-Santos, 2014). With regard to adolescents, the evaluation of their own behaviors can bring relevant contributions to the understanding of the indicators evaluated (Grigorenko et al., 2010). However, nationally, few studies have been found that have used different sources of information to assess behavioral problems in adolescents (Alckmin- Carvalho et al., 2014), perhaps due to the difficulty of accessing different informants to evaluate the same case in a period.

THE EFFECT OF EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE TRAINING ON BEHAVIOR PROBLEMS OF BOYS WITH EXTERNALIZED BEHAVIOR DISORDER IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS

THE EFFECT OF EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE TRAINING ON BEHAVIOR PROBLEMS OF BOYS WITH EXTERNALIZED BEHAVIOR DISORDER IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS

expresses, emotional intelligence skills may be taught and can be learned. He believes that with the help of methods such as psychotherapy and counseling, these skills can be enhanced in individual. This is the same as Bar- n idea which has focused on teaching these skills to children. Development of emotional intelligence starts from early stages of life and continues to be shaped throughout the school. Thus, if the primary school age can be taken into account as the early stages of life and as the base for the emotional intelligence development (24), it is important to have some intervention programs relate to children’s emotional intelligence and their problem behaviors. On the other hand, behavior disorders are usually first observed in the early years of primary school and reach their peak between the age of 8 to 15 and if it continues, these behavior patterns leads to failure in individuals compatibility with their surroundings (24). This was one of the reasons needed to address elementary-aged children in the present study. Given the high prevalence of externalized behavior disorders in boys and their tendency more towards aggressive and destructive behaviors (25) also considering the lower performance of emotional intelligence in boys than girls (26), we chose the boys for our study. Therefore, the main objective of the present study is to examine the effect of emotional intelligence training on behavior problems of boys with externalized behavioral disorders in elementary schools.

The comparison of the structure and microhardness of the tool steel C90 and HS 6-5-2 remelted with the electric arc

The tool steels consistute a very important group of materials used for the production, not only tools, but also machine ele- ments, that need to have the increased strength, for example the high-speed steels are used on the rolling bearing operating in high temperatures [1]. Modern technologies such as: laser treatment, electron treatment, CVD, PVD methods, give the possibility of forming the structure of the surface layer of steels providing the demaded properties. The economic factors direct research in using the plasma of the electric arc for shaping the surface layer of the machine elements and tools. Advantages of that method are the possibilities of receiving wider treated areas with one stream of the heat in comparison with the laser technologies or electron

The Relationship Between Emotional Intelligence and Internet Addiction Among Youth and Adults

The Relationship Between Emotional Intelligence and Internet Addiction Among Youth and Adults

The correlations established between the variables of emo- tional intelligence and Internet addiction are weak and negative (r = j.184, p G .001) but statistically significant. The study by Reiso?lu, Gedik, and Goktas (2013) show that emotional intelligence is not a predictor of Internet addiction, which contradicts other findings from the literature as well as those found in this study. Jafari and Fatehizade (2011) corrob- orate the existence of correlations between Internet addiction and emotional intelligence, claiming that emotional intelligence can reliably predict 29% of cases of Internet addiction. Data from this study indicate that there is a relationship between these variables. However, it should be noted that this associ- ation might vary based on individual and cultural differences. Contrary to those who display low levels of emotional in- telligence, emotionally intelligent individuals will actually be able to create, through the use of emotional regulation, pos- itive emotions controlling the negative and grow emotionally and intellectually and will be better able to establish interper- sonal relationships and better control of their own lives (Wong & Law, 2002).

The Relevance of Emotional Intelligence in Personnel Selection for High Emotional Labor Jobs.

The Relevance of Emotional Intelligence in Personnel Selection for High Emotional Labor Jobs.

We used the MSCEIT [21] to assess applicants’ EI. Some subscales (i.e., understanding and regulating emotions) of this measure have only moderate reliabilities, and this in turn reduces power to observe associations with the predictor and outcome variables. With a more reliable measure, larger effects may have emerged. Furthermore, because the data were cross-sectional in nature, we cannot infer whether EI predicts long-term job success of the accepted applicants. We thus recommend that future research applies a longitudinal approach and examines the mental health and job performances of accepted applicants over a period of time. In addition, the incremental validity of EI above and beyond other selection variables (e.g., cognitive intelli- gence and conscientiousness) needs to be established more thoroughly.

Kritiki so avtorjem oèitali, da skušajo vnesti dodatno zmedo na podroèje inteligentnosti, pri èemer so izpostavili predvsem problem veljavnosti konstrukta. Poudarili so, da predstavlja konstrukt emocionalne inteligentnosti predvsem zbir najrazliènejših osebnostnih lastnosti, kot so npr. empatija, toplina, socialna sprejetost itd. ter da združuje dva pojma, ki sta že po svoji naravi kontradiktorna, emocije in inteligentnost. Problematizirali so tudi trditve, da lahko s pomoèjo emocionalne inteligentnosti napovemo uspeh posameznika na vseh življenjskih podroèjih precej bolje, kot na podlagi klasiène inteligentnosti in IQ-ja. Mayer (1999) pravi, da bi na podlagi tako raznovrstne zbirke spremenljivk z razliènih podroèij, kot jih vkljuèuje koncept emocionalne inteligentnosti, sicer lahko prièakovali boljšo napoved uspešnosti posameznika v življenju, vendar pa emocionalna inteligentnost napoveduje uspeh na pomembnih življenjskih podroèjih na približno isti ravni kot ostale pomembne osebnostne spremenljivke, tj. na ravni od 2 do 25 odstotkov pojasnjene variance.

Synthesis Of Arts In Architecture Of Uzbekistan Of The Ancient Period

Synthesis Of Arts In Architecture Of Uzbekistan Of The Ancient Period

decoration in Airtam "the sculpture with the busts of musicians, gift-bearers was subjected to the unified principle of division of the entire space into rhythmic segments" [47, 86].As an example, one may consider the case when the sculpture had a religious or symbolic significance, and was a crucial element in resolving the entire interior ("Hall of Warriors" in Toprak-kale). But on the whole, in contrast to a more constrained medieval sculpture, antique one differed in realistic nature (right arrangement of the figures), expressiveness (the types of faces and their emotions), naturalness (in different curves of the body), through which the aesthetic sides of the structures were emphasized. Monumental characters of the structures, their ideological concepts (for example, the idea of greatness) were emphasized by means of sculpture. And, the most important aspect, the sculpture differed in architectonic manner (Buddhas - under the arches, gandharvas– between the acanthuses), as the determinant factor was still the scale of the monument, the height of the walls, the conditions of observation, the very architectonics of the interior. A high quality performance, especially in the Greco-Bactrian period, testified to the high skills of the artists, in the best traditions of Hellenic arts. "The artist could be acourt master from Seleucid accompanying the king to a distant Bactria" [30, 190]. It is assumed that in Bactria existed at least three sculptural schools; their students were familiar with Asia Minor sculpture schools [48, 125p]. Smooth walls of buildings were divided not only horizontally –by friezes, zofors, but also vertically - through door and window openings, columns and pilasters. The synthesis of architecture and decorative plastic forms, generally typical for later Hellenistic states, could be seen in the ancient Bactrian capitals - Corinthian and composite ones, representing a complete architectural form. Professional masters "were widely using the approach of architectonic

The Prediction of Social Adjustment Based on Emotional and Spiritual Intelligence

The Prediction of Social Adjustment Based on Emotional and Spiritual Intelligence

The self-evaluation scale of social adjustment was used four weeks before and after the treatment of 76 patients. The social health of patients showed significant increase in all of the six factors. Despite of major inconsistency in responses, the social adjustment scale could distinguish between patients with depression disorder, alcoholism and schizophrenia. In recent studies, significant difference resulted between depressed patients and normal individuals (controls) for 40 out of 48 females. Viessman et al., suggested the correlation between this scale and other scales of mental health. This result provides the concurrent validity of social adjustment scale. Riyahinia et al., (2003) used correlation method and Cronbach’s alpha to calculate the validity and reliability of the test. The results showed that maximum validity is related with adjustment plus leisure time (50%) while minimum validity is related to family

Strategies and Problems in the Promotion of Taal as a Culture and Religious Destination

Strategies and Problems in the Promotion of Taal as a Culture and Religious Destination

V. CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS The commonly visited tourist attractions in Taal were Escuela Pia, White House and Basilica of St. Martins of Tours. Historical Sites were considered the most effective promotional strategies used in Taal. Presence of Beggars was the common problem encountered by the tourists of Taal. The Municipality of Taal may continually preserve Taal’s historical sites. The Department of Tourism of Taal may provide a sustainable program to promote Taal through its historical and pilgrimage sites. CITHM may also support existing activities promoting Taal as tourist destination. Future researchers may conduct similar study but using other variables. It is a great opportunity for the students to have c urriculum which is supported by activities which are in the forms of actual

Children’s mental health problems were analyzed from a sociological approach addressing two questions: what are the main children’s behaviors identified and considered to be mental health problems, and what are the consequences of this classification for the debate on children’s problems in contemporary societies. This quantitative and qualitative study analyzed 275 patients’ records from two child mental health services (CMHS) in the northeast area of Paris, France. The majority of children were boys from six to 11 years old; requests were presented mainly by schools and parents; the main problems were behavioural problems, cognitive difficulties and relational problems (boys), and affective or emotional problems (girls). There is an interdependence of a great number of actors who worry about children’s behavior and a system of expectations seems to be collectively woven by them as social classifications.

Emotional intelligence training intervention among trainee teachers: a quasi- experimental study

Emotional intelligence training intervention among trainee teachers: a quasi- experimental study

On the other hand, Bond and Manser (2009) con- ducted a study in which they modified courses from the first semester of technology degree programmes to in- tegrate EI course concepts. The time dedicated to the EI course involved a reduction in the time dedicated to the remaining lessons and, therefore, decreased stu- dents’ academic performance. Despite the effort made, students complained about the large amount of home- work required for this course compared to other courses, and of the five dimensions developed in the course, only the dimension of self-awareness was improved in the intervention group. The authors explained that this did not improve students’ overall level of EI due to the short duration of the course (15 weeks). In contrast, Oberst et al. (2009) proposed an intervention for psychology students that took the form of seminars directed at problem solving; these seminars were student-focused, with the objective of promoting emotional competencies and EI. They came to the Table 5 Fit index for linear mixed model and linear regression model (MSCEIT as target)

reduction of symptoms on mothers perception increased. This represents the positive effect of MFD treatment on children and adolescents behavior, improving internal emotional problems such as anxiety, depression as well as behavior pattern most expressed and unadjusted such as aggressive and delinquent behavior. We should note that spite of a significant symptoms reduction we observed that the patients remained with high scores on Emotional/Behavioral Problem Total Scale after treatment (see table 1). This indicates that, even with MFD use in this population there is a need of a psychological and/or pedagogical follow-up, according to CBCL/6-18 rules [20]. According to other studies, the underlying mechanisms of abnormal brain function, DAE, seizures can be involved with persistent behavior dysfunction in spite of attention symptoms treatment [4, 26]. Freilinger et al (2006) pointed an association between polytheraphy and high scores on social and attention problems and aggressive behavior.

Assessment Of Some Acceleration Schemes In The Solution Of Systems Of Linear Equations.

Assessment Of Some Acceleration Schemes In The Solution Of Systems Of Linear Equations.

Many practical problems can be reduced to systems of linear equations Ax = b, where A, b are known matrices and x is a vector of unknowns. Systems of linear equations play a prominent role in economics, engineering, physics, chemistry, computer science and other fields of Pure and Applied Sciences [2]. A solution to a system of linear equations is a set of numerical values ….. that satisfies all the equations in a system [1]. There are two classes of iterative methods [3]: linear stationary and linear nonstationary. The stationary iterative methods are the Jacobi, Gauss-Seidel and SOR and Nonstationary include Krylov subspace methods: Conjugate Gradient, Minimal Residual, Quasi-Minimal Residual, Generalizes Minimal Residual and Biconjugate gradient methods. The choice of a method for solving linear systems will often depend on the structure of the matrix A. According to [8] ideally, iterative methods should have the property that for any starting vector , it converges to a solution Ax = b. [5] is of the view that examination of the Jacobi iterative method shows that in general one must save all the components of the vector while computing the components of the vector for an iterative method. According to Hadjidimos [6], the first step in the construction of solution of stationary iterative methods usually begins with splitting of matrix A. Thus, A = M – N where det M and M is easily invertible so that A = b is equivalent to = T + C , where T = and C = giving the iterative scheme = T + C , (k = 0,1,2……). [2] noted that for systems of linear equation A the splitting matrix may be chosen in a different way; that is, one can split matrix A as A = D L U where D is the diagonal matrix, L and U are strictly lower and strictly upper triangular matrices respectively. In solving the systems of linear equations Ax = b, therefore, we consider any convergent method which produces a sequence of iterates { [7] .Quite often the convergence is too slow and it has to be accelerated. According to [9] to improve the convergence rate of the basic iterative methods, one may transform the original system A = b into the preconditioned form PA = Pb, where � is called the preconditioned or a preconditioning matrix. Convergent numerical sequences occur quite often in natural Science and Engineering. Some of such sequences converge very slowly and their limits are not available without suitable convergent acceleration method. Some known acceleration schemes are: Chebyshev Extrapolation scheme [4] and residual Smoothing.

Objective: To verify and compare the results of behavioral modification plus pelvic floor muscle training and behavioral modifications plus oxybutynin chloride in children with nonmonosymptomatic enuresis. Methods: A total of 47 children were randomized using opaque and sealed envelopes sequentially numbered. Group I was composed of 21 children who underwent antimuscarinic treatment (oxybutynin), and Group II was composed of 26 patients who underwent pelvic floor muscle training. Both groups were instructed as to behavioral modifications. Results: The voiding diary results were compared each month between Groups I and II. In the first month of treatment, children in Group I presented 12.2 dry nights, 13.4 in the second month, and 15.9 in the last month. In Group II, the results were: 14.9 dry nights in the first month, 20.8 dry nights in the second and 24.0 dry nights in the last month. There was a significant difference between the groups in second and third months. Conclusion: Pelvic floor exercises associated with behavioral changes were more effective than pharmacological treatment in children with urinary incontinence.
