Study Of The Importance Of The Inclusion Of Exact Sciences In Economic Sciences Using A Scientometric Approach, Houcemeddine A. Turki 2014 SelectedWorks

Study Of The Importance Of The Inclusion Of Exact Sciences In Economic Sciences Using A Scientometric Approach, Houcemeddine A. Turki

Houcemeddine A Turki

Using a scientometric approach based on Google Scholar, this research studies the advances in the conciousness of scientific range about the dire effects of the overuse of Mathematics in Economics and the advances in the consideration of the efficiency of interdisciplinary approaches other than Mathematical Ones in solving Economic Problems. The work finished by determining that the consideration of the efficiency of interdiscipliary approaches has preceded the consciousness about the studied matter itself by using Regression Tools and Gompertz Model. This proved that the problem is in the conciousness about the matter and not the impossibility to find a complement ...

Ranking Of Tunisian Scientists Accroding To Their Efficient Productivity, Houcemeddine A. Turki, Manel Turki 2014 SelectedWorks

Ranking Of Tunisian Scientists Accroding To Their Efficient Productivity, Houcemeddine A. Turki, Manel Turki

Houcemeddine A Turki

Ranking Scientists had been a huge purpose in order to find the list of best scientists in a particular country and even worldwide and this is what some scholars from developed countries had recognized. However, scholars from developing countries did not accomplish any scientific ranking for scholar from their countries. That is why a scientific ranking for Scientists of Tunisia should be created and this is possible only by the use of metrics of Hirsch Index and Google Scholar MyCitations Database as a computational tool. The ranking is limited only to Scientists having a Hirsch Index of 15 and more ...


New Methodology For New Economic Sciences, Houcemeddine A. Turki 2014 SelectedWorks

New Methodology For New Economic Sciences, Houcemeddine A. Turki

Houcemeddine A Turki

Since Scientists working on Social Scientists had witnessed that Social Sciences does not have the same reliability and accuracy as Exact Sciences, they had witnessed that they had to inspire methods and tools from Exact Sciences in order to do their studies. In this context and as many disciplines in Economic Sciences had not been developed and ameliorated as they contain some facts that are not irreducible to Mathematics which are leading Economics Nowadays, a new modeling strategy has to be created as said by Paul Krugman. That is why many scientists had worked on the similarities between Economics and ...


Reasons For Ethical Misconduct Of Counseling Students: What Do Faculty Think?, David Burkholder, Jessica Burkholder 2014 Western Connecticut State University

Reasons For Ethical Misconduct Of Counseling Students: What Do Faculty Think?, David Burkholder, Jessica Burkholder

The Journal for Counselor Preparation and Supervision

The ethics training of students in the helping professions has been a frequent topic in the literature, yet students still commit ethics violations (Li, Lampe, Trusty, & Lin, 2009). No known research has examined the attributions faculty give for student ethics violations. This qualitative study used a conceptual framework of attribution theory and explored faculty attributions of counseling master’s students’ ethical misconduct. Emergent themes were grouped across two broad domains, attribution themes and prevention themes. Attribution themes include: (a) the person, (b) educational factors, and (d) performance. Prevention themes include (a) education and training, (b) gatekeeping and screening, (c) monitoring ...


An Exploratory Study Of Classroom Diversity And Cultural Competency, Jelane A. Kennedy, Wendy Neifeld Wheeler, Stephanie Bennett 2014 Western Connecticut State University

An Exploratory Study Of Classroom Diversity And Cultural Competency, Jelane A. Kennedy, Wendy Neifeld Wheeler, Stephanie Bennett

The Journal for Counselor Preparation and Supervision

This exploratory study compares the effectiveness of multicultural training across two classrooms of counselors-in-training at a predominately white institution—one which was homogenous in class composition; the other which was diverse in class composition. Results indicated that there was a statistically significant difference between classrooms and that individual students demonstrated statistically significant change in perceived multicultural competence. Such findings highlight the need for ongoing research that explores influence of classroom composition on cultural competency training for counseling graduate students.


Students' Experiences With Bilingual Counseling, Heather Trepal, Nathaniel Ivers, Anna Lopez 2014 Western Connecticut State University

Students' Experiences With Bilingual Counseling, Heather Trepal, Nathaniel Ivers, Anna Lopez

The Journal for Counselor Preparation and Supervision

Multilingual diversity is increasing in the United States. In response, more counselors are providing bilingual counseling services. However, little is known about their experiences. This qualitative, phenomenological study examined six mental health counseling students' experiences with providing counseling services in a second language. Analyses revealed that, although unintentional, these students found their experience with bilingual counseling both challenging and connecting. Implications for counselor educators and supervisors are discussed.


Preplanning For Feedback In Clinical Supervision: Enhancing Readiness For Feedback Exchange, Diana Hulse, Tracey Robert 2014 Western Connecticut State University

Preplanning For Feedback In Clinical Supervision: Enhancing Readiness For Feedback Exchange, Diana Hulse, Tracey Robert

The Journal for Counselor Preparation and Supervision

This article makes the case for preplanning for feedback in clinical supervision. Preplanning for feedback can help supervisors maximize the positive benefits of feedback delivery by building and solidifying a supportive supervisory climate that enhances supervisee receptivity to corrective feedback. The Corrective Feedback Instrument-Revised (CFI-R) is introduced as a major tool to facilitate preplanning. Additional resources that derive from the CFI-R are presented to assist supervisors in the preplanning process.


Integrating Continuous Client Feedback Into Counselor Education, Christopher D. Schmidt 2014 Western Connecticut State University

Integrating Continuous Client Feedback Into Counselor Education, Christopher D. Schmidt

The Journal for Counselor Preparation and Supervision

Researchers show that the integration of continuous client feedback mechanisms provides many benefits to treatment including enhanced effectiveness and a reduction in early terminations. Although practitioners in the field are increasing their use of this evidence-based practice, counselor educators may not be promoting it. The author suggests that as counselor educators introduce evidence-based practices to their students, they should examine the potential benefits of teaching and practicing continuous client feedback. The article provides both the reasoning behind and recommendations for integrating continuous client feedback into the curriculum of counseling programs


The Reluctance Of African-Americans To Engage In Therapy, Monique Estelle Williamson 2014 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

The Reluctance Of African-Americans To Engage In Therapy, Monique Estelle Williamson

Open Access Theses and Dissertations from the College of Education and Human Sciences

This thesis is presented with the intent to explore the reasoning behind why members of the African-American culture are reluctant to enter into therapy. While the numbers of African-Americans who enter therapy continue to rise there are still persistent stigmas that make therapy a taboo option for solving problems. The goal of this qualitative study is to identify (1) if there truly is reluctance in the African-American community, (2) why the African-American community is reluctant, (3) what are the stigmas regarding mental health and therapy from the perspectives of American participants, and (4) what would help break the barriers to ...


Can A Physician Use Really His Scientific Knowledge Acquired In Many Fundamental Exact Sciences In Order To Solve A Social Science Matter He May Face Frequently In Close Relationship With Health Management And Economics?, Houcemeddine A. Turki 2014 SelectedWorks

Can A Physician Use Really His Scientific Knowledge Acquired In Many Fundamental Exact Sciences In Order To Solve A Social Science Matter He May Face Frequently In Close Relationship With Health Management And Economics?, Houcemeddine A. Turki

Houcemeddine A Turki

Generally, most Physicians and Working Pharmacists face problems when dealing with managerial problems. So, in order to solve such Health Economics and Management Matters, they should profit of their scientific knowledge that seems to be very deep in Exact Science and this is possible only if they assimilate the faced economic phenomenon to a Biomedical Problem and try to solve it. However, this technique should be organized by a Strong Methodology so that the procedure give accurate results and would not be influenced by Ideologies of the Technique's Users or give wrong theories due to errors of approximation and ...

This paper investigates all variables and looks for potential patterns in the survey data in the hope of finding ...


Conference Presentation: The Power Of Words In Tension: Enterprise/Strategy As A Dilemma In Neoliberalism’S Persistence., Brendan K. O'Rourke 2014 Dublin Institute of Technology

Conference Presentation: The Power Of Words In Tension: Enterprise/Strategy As A Dilemma In Neoliberalism’S Persistence., Brendan K. O'Rourke

Conference papers

We address how enterprise is related to, another important discourse, strategy. From a discourse analysis of the talk of small firm owner-managers, emerges a view of strategy and enterprise as a single, integrated entity, bound together by some commonalities but more importantly by paired opposites reminiscent of ideological dilemmas (Billig, Condor, Edwards, Gane, Middleton & Radley, 1988). This dilemmatic nature of enterprise/strategy discourse adds to explanations for the persistence of the neoliberal form of enterprise, with the entrepreneur as the heroic saviour of all, based on the entrepreneur as an empty signifier (Jones & Spicer, 2009; Kenny & Scriver, 2012) or as a spectre (Marttila, 2012).

Across-Year Social Stability Shapes Network Structure In Wintering Migrant Sparrows, Daizaburo Shizuka, Alexis S. Chaine, Jennifer Anderson, Oscar Johnson, Inger Marie Laursen, Bruce E. Lyon

Faculty Publications in the Biological Sciences

Migratory birds often form flocks on their wintering grounds, but important details of social structure such as the patterns of association between individuals are virtually unknown. We analysed networks of co-membership in short-term flocks for wintering golden-crowned sparrows (Zonotrichia atricapilla) across three years and discovered social complexity unsuspected for migratory songbirds. The population was consistently clustered into distinct social communities within a relatively small area (~ 7 ha). Birds returned to the same community across years, with mortality and recruitment leading to some degree of turnover in membership. These spatiotemporal patterns were explained by the combination of space use and social ...


Towards An Embodied Social Justice: Integrating Mindfulness Into Anti-Oppression Pedagogy, Elizabeth S. Berila 2014 St. Cloud State University

Towards An Embodied Social Justice: Integrating Mindfulness Into Anti-Oppression Pedagogy, Elizabeth S. Berila

Ethnic and Women's Studies Faculty Publications

This webinar explores how contemplative practices can deepen feminist and critical race pedagogies in Women’s Studies, Ethnic Studies, and other courses about diversity, power, and oppression. Mindfulness can help students both understand their reactions in class discussions and help them become more intentional about them. But they may also evoke for students complex responses to their own experiences of oppression. As teachers, we have a responsibility to help students make sense of those responses.

How does embodiment play a role in unlearning oppression? How might our identity locations and our lived experiences shape our responses to mindfulness practices? What ...


The Magic Of (A)Ffective Management, Ryan Weir 2014 Purdue University

The Magic Of (A)Ffective Management, Ryan Weir

Charleston Library Conference

(A)ffective management is a people-first approach to managing employees. After all, employees and supervisors are people first. No matter how hard any individual may try, inevitably the stress and strain of life outside of work can and will bleed through into the work environment. The (A)ffective and effective manager understands this and incorporates this understanding into how he/she interacts with superiors and subordinates in the work environment on a daily basis. This article offers strategies on how to be an (A)ffective manager.


"The Popular Thing To Do" Examining Young Evangelicals' Motivations For Short-Term Mission Trips, Kelsey McGhee 2014 Pace University

"The Popular Thing To Do" Examining Young Evangelicals' Motivations For Short-Term Mission Trips, Kelsey Mcghee

Honors College Theses

Evangelical Christians are taking short-term mission trips in ever increasing numbers, with several billion dollars a year invested in these efforts. This thesis set out to understand if there was a gender difference in the motivations of young evangelical men and women, ages 14-25, who participate in short-term mission trips. Using historical perspectives on missions and functionalism, this thesis explores the motivations of recent short-term missionaries. I expected a large difference between the genders based on historical narratives of men and women missionaries, as well as my own experience in missions. However, after interviewing seventeen people, ten women and seven ...


Motivations To Pursue The Doctoral Degree In Counselor Education And Supervision, Michelle Hinkle, Melanie M. Iarussi, Travis W. Schermer, Jennifer F. Yensel 2014 Western Connecticut State University

Motivations To Pursue The Doctoral Degree In Counselor Education And Supervision, Michelle Hinkle, Melanie M. Iarussi, Travis W. Schermer, Jennifer F. Yensel

The Journal for Counselor Preparation and Supervision

Pursuing a doctoral degree in Counselor Education and Supervision (CES) requires a significant commitment. Although there is research on motivations to pursue a doctorate in general, there has not been a specific examination of motivations among those who have pursued a doctorate in CES, which warrants investigation given the diversity of training and potential career paths offered by the degree. In this Q methodology study, 35 students, counselor educators, and practitioners sorted statements pertaining to their motivation for doctoral studies in CES. The sorted statements were correlated and factor analyzed, resulted in four distinct motivations. The motivations are described and ...
