9780814729151 What Is Parenthood by Linda C

Content:
"Extraordinary changes in patterns of family life
and family law
have dramatically altered the boundaries of parenthood and opened up numerous questions and debates. What is parenthood and why does it matter How should society define, regulate, and support it Is parenthood separable from marriage
or couplehood
when society seeks to foster children's well-being What is the better model of parenthood from the perspective of child outcomes Intense disagreements over the definition and future of marriage often rest upon conflicting convictions about parenthood. What Is Parenthood asks bold and direct questions about parenthood in contemporary society, and it brings together a stellar interdisciplinary group of scholars with widely varying perspectives to investigate them. Editors Linda C. McClain and Daniel Cere facilitate a dynamic conversation between scholars from several disciplines about competing models of parenthood and a sweeping array of topics, including single parenthood, adoption, donor-created families, gay and lesbian parents, transnational parenthood, parentchild attachment, and gender difference and parenthood"

ERIC - Social Support and Well-Being in Contemporary Greek Society: Examination of Multiple Indicators at Different Levels of Analysis, Social Indicat

Social Indicators Research. v76 n1 p127-145 Mar 2006

An extensive and coherent body of social and psychological research has identified social ties and supportive relationships as important predictors of well-being and quality of life. This paper examines the relationships between structural and functional indicators of supportive relations and well-being in Greece at different levels of analysis based on results from three studies: (a) the European Social Survey (Study 1); (b) a cross sectional community study in Greece (Study 2); and (c) a social interactions study in Greece and the UK using an event sampling methodology (Study 3). Structural indicators of social support and life satisfaction and happiness in the first study were moderately associated. This finding was partly supported by results from the second study which revealed connections between some structural aspects of social support and well-being (happiness, anxiety, irritability) but not others. Functional aspects of social support and psychological indicators of well-being (happiness, anxiety, mental health) at the individual (Study 2) and social interaction (Study 3) levels were not associated. Cross-cultural comparisons of structural indicators of social support in Studies 1 and 3 revealed low frequency of social interactions. Also functional aspects of social support in everyday social interactions in Greece showed significantly lower levels in comparison to the UK. These findings suggest that structural and functional aspects of social support in Greece may not have the same palliative role as usually observed in the international literature and are discussed with particular attention to the level of analysis, the method, and the aspect of well-being being assessed.

Childhood Stress In Contemporary Society

Don’t let your own reaction to stress negatively affect the children in your care!

With new evidence indicating that undesirable stress is likely to have its roots in childhood, Childhood Stress in Contemporary Society is a much-needed resource for anyone who works with children. An authority in the field of stress education, Dr. James Humphrey offers an easy-to-read text on what stress is, how it affects children as opposed to adults, and how to take back control when stress becomes overwhelming. Whether a parent, caretaker, counselor, or teacher, this book will provide you with a better understanding of stress and several methods for helping children cope on a daily basis.

Childhood Stress in Contemporary Society provides readers with an extensive exploration of the definition of stress, from basic terminology to the causes and effects of stress in the daily lives of children and adults. This book will teach you how to better deal with stress in your own life and how to share that knowledge with children. Dr. Humphrey walks you step-by-step through a variety of techniques, exercises, and games that improve a child’s self-image and the confidence necessary to contend with stressful situations.

This book will help you:
  • spot irregular behavior in children usually associated with poor stress management
  • help children understand and respond more appropriately to stressors
  • work with children with special needs who have additional stress due to their afflictions
  • alleviate or reduce stressors at home and in school
  • provide the appropriate level of physical activity to children to decrease tension
  • utilize relaxation techniques, such as meditation and biofeedback, to alleviate stress
Rich with interviews, surveys, and case studies focusing on children and caretakers, Childhood Stress in Contemporary Society is an important manual for helping children in today’s hectic culture. Recent discoveries indicate that children who associate with adults under stress are very likely to become stress-ridden themselves; children supervised by adults who do not cope well with stress can adopt this same inability to cope. Therefore, this book is vital for those adults who are involved with the well-being of children.

The Internet, Power and Society - 1st Edition ISBN: 9781843344520

The Internet, Power and Society Description

An exciting challenge to how the internet and ICT have been understood in academia and popular culture and shows how important ‘cultural’ assumptions are in how we understand technology. The Internet, Power and Society argues that the way in which we view technology such as the internet owes much to older, historic views of the media and to ‘issues’ in contemporary society. Such perspectives are deeply rooted in a Western view of technology and the book concludes by offering a radically new perspective as to how the internet can change a society that is truly global in its application.

Key Features
  • An original approach to ICT and the Internet that challenges the orthodoxy
  • Very topical subject matter - the book addresses many of the issues regarded of key import in high level political discussions (such as the World Summit on the Information Society); the current understanding of ICT and how to move beyond this interpretation
  • An approach that moves the debate forward and offers a truly global way of understanding the Internet and ICT
Readership

Researchers, academics, post-graduate and higher level undergraduate students in the fields of information studies – particularly fields such as social and community informatics, media/mass communications studies, media sociology, media anthropology, media development and other academics subjects allied to the media field

Table of Contents

Part 1 Understanding the Internet: Theories of technology and society; The idea of the Internet; The Internet, politics and the public sphere; Politics and the role of the Internet. Part 2 The Internet and society: Social form and media potency – the processes of modernisation; The Internet and society: Reconsidering the link; Conclusion.
