Risk Perception In Aviation Students: Weather Matters, Ric Ferraro PhD, Darci VanDyke, Mary Zander, Krista Anderson, Bethany Kuehlen 2015 Univ. North Dakota

Risk Perception In Aviation Students: Weather Matters, Ric Ferraro Phd, Darci Vandyke, Mary Zander, Krista Anderson, Bethany Kuehlen

International Journal of Aviation, Aeronautics, and Aerospace

Sixty-three aviation major students and 71 non-aviation major students participated in an experiment concerning aviation experience and risk perception (Risk Perception Scale, RPS; Hunter, 2002). Non-aviation students rated three of the RPS risk scenarios (P2Fly, P2Life, P2 Base) as having higher perceived risk than aviation students with the exception of the weather risk scenarios (P2WX). Aviation students perceived the P2WX scenarios to be significantly more risky. These results have implications for how future pilots perceive risk.

Consistency Of Aviation Students When Taking The Private Pilot Knowledge Exam, Scott R. Winter, Stephen Rice, Katie M. Reid, Rian Mehta

Journal of Aviation/Aerospace Education & Research

Inconsistency is the enemy of performance. Several researchers have conducted a number of studies examining consistency in a variety of laboratory tasks; however, no research to date has looked at test-taking consistency in a real-world aviation environment. In this study, participants took a portion of the Federal Aviation Administration Private Pilot Knowledge Exam for credit in their Aeronautics 1 (private pilot ground school) course at their respective university. This was done twice: once after seven weeks and another time after 12 weeks into the semester. In order to measure consistency, participants took the same exam twice (questions were randomized across ...

Repositioning Art Work From Patients Suffering From Anorexia Nervosa In A Gendered, Socio-Cultural Context: A Self-Reflective Study, Dafna Rehavia-Hanauer 2014 Psychological Art Therapy Services of Pittsburgh

Repositioning Art Work From Patients Suffering From Anorexia Nervosa In A Gendered, Socio-Cultural Context: A Self-Reflective Study, Dafna Rehavia-Hanauer

Journal of Clinical Art Therapy

This article, conceptualized within a post-structuralist, feminist approach to art therapy, addresses the role of visual images as a controlling constituting discourse significant to the formation of the eating disorder anorexia nervosa. As a core position this article argues for a change in the way art work created within the art therapy process by women who suffer from anorexia nervosa is interpreted and analyzed by art therapists. The article argues for an enhanced appreciation and critical analysis of gendered, social-cultural contextualization of visual images and recognition of how these forces have a role in directing women to enact behaviors of ...


The Use Of Creative Art As A Strategy For Case Formulation In Psychotherapy: A Case Study, Semra Karaca PhD, Nurhan Eren 2014 Marmara University Istanbul

The Use Of Creative Art As A Strategy For Case Formulation In Psychotherapy: A Case Study, Semra Karaca Phd, Nurhan Eren

Journal of Clinical Art Therapy

Case formulation refers to the appraisal of the individual data and the treatment plan in terms of certain principles. In psychotherapy, case formulation is relevant for the recognition of conceptual and clinical tools, as well as for the evaluation of the therapeutic endeavor. Art work (painting) provides an effective tool for case formulation because it allows the individual to express his/her thoughts and emotions, which are prone to the influences of subconscious drives, conflicts, fears, and desires in a symbolic fashion. In this study, case formulation of a 31-year-old woman, who could not overcome her verbal and physical aggressive ...

Grounding Naïve Physics And Optics In Perception, Ivana Bianchi, Ugo Savardi 2014 University of Macerata, Italy

Grounding Naïve Physics And Optics In Perception, Ivana Bianchi, Ugo Savardi

Baltic International Yearbook of Cognition, Logic and Communication

Many adults hold mistaken beliefs concerning the behavior of mechanical motion and reflections. In the field of psychology this has been investigated in the areas of naïve physics and naïve optics. The interesting question regards where these false beliefs come from. Particularly thought-provoking is the case of errors which are at odds not only with (presumably or even actually) known physical/optical concepts, but also with what people would actually perceive. Some errors are in fact consistent with what people see in ecological conditions while others apparently are not. This has led to the former being referred to as perceptual ...

Study Of The Importance Of The Inclusion Of Exact Sciences In Economic Sciences Using A Scientometric Approach, Houcemeddine A. Turki 2014 University of Sfax, Tunisia

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 ...


Exploring Communication Apprehension And Its Relationship To Communication Attitude And Socio-Communicative Functioning In Children With Velopharyngeal Insufficiency, Agnieszka Dzioba 2014 The University of Western Ontario

Exploring Communication Apprehension And Its Relationship To Communication Attitude And Socio-Communicative Functioning In Children With Velopharyngeal Insufficiency, Agnieszka Dzioba

University of Western Ontario - Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Myriad findings on children with velopharyngeal insufficiency (VPI) indicate the potential for this population of children to experience feelings of apprehension specific to communication and the potential for other psychological and social difficulties. The purpose of the present investigation was to explore the construct of communication apprehension (CA) and its potential relationship to social and communicative functioning in a diverse group of children with VPI. Potential linkages between CA and multiple socio-communicative constructs including attitude, speech satisfaction, speech and language skill, social competence, and speech severity were explored in a cohort of children with and without VPI, followed by an ...


Comparison Of Housed And Homeless Patients With An Orthopedic Diagnosis, Susan M. Williams 2014 The University of Western Ontario

Comparison Of Housed And Homeless Patients With An Orthopedic Diagnosis, Susan M. Williams

University of Western Ontario - Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Studies on homelessness have shown that people who are homeless are admitted to hospital more frequently, for longer periods of time, and at a younger age than people who are housed. Once admitted to hospital, discharge planning is difficult and resource intensive, often leading to discharge back to the streets or a shelter. This puts this population at risk for complications and readmission. Although people who are homeless are prone to orthopedic injuries, there is no research on the outcomes of patients who are homeless with orthopedic injuries. This retrospective, case control study, based on the social determinants of health ...

Ranking Of Tunisian Scientists According To Their Efficient Productivity, Houcemeddine A. Turki, Manel Turki 2014 University of Sfax, Tunisia

Ranking Of Tunisian Scientists According 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 University of Sfax, Tunisia

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 Monmouth 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 The College of Saint Rose

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.
