Abstract

The link between youth delinquency and increasing exposure of youth to the media in contemporary world is not sufficiently researched. The present paper presents the results regarding secondary school students aged 15 – 19 years from Slovenia regarding media exposure, internet privacy concerns, school achievement and will to live in relation to youth delinquency. We hypothesised that students with a lower last year final achievement and lower current grades are more delinquent than students achieving higher grades and that heavy media users are more delinquent than less exposed students. To test the hypotheses, groups were created and independent sample Student T-tests was used. The present paper demonstrates the correlation between higher delinquency rates and lower school success and between higher delinquency rates and higher media exposure.

Key words: Adolescents, Secondary School, Media, Delinquency, Deviance, Family.

RESOLVING CONFLICT BETWEEN AUTONOMY AND RELATEDNESS IN INTIMATE RELATIONSHIPS THROUGH THEIR CONSTANT INTERCHANGE OR THROUGH SYNTHESIS Print E-mail

Simona Gomboc[1]

Abstract

The purpose of our qualitative research was to explore distinct ways individuals surpass ambivalent tendencies for autonomy and for relatedness in intimate relationships. Our study was based on principles of grounded theory and included 47 participants (55.3% female and 44.6% male) of Slovene nationality, whose average age was 30 years and 8 months and who had been in intimate relationship on average for 7 years and 4 months. Analysis of data collected with diary method identified two distinct ways of resolving fundamentally antagonistic tendencies: tendencies for autonomy and tendencies for relatedness can be satisfied by their constant interchange or by their synthesis. Lastly, the paper also discusses parallels and differences between our results and findings of attachment and interdependence theory.

INTIMATE SPOUSAL’S VIOLENCE AND WOMEN’S PROPERTY OWNERSHIP: DELVING DEEPER INTO LINKAGE IN LAGOS STATE, NIGERIA Print E-mail

Olabisi Sherifat Yusuff[1],

Abstract

A large body of global research documents the high prevalence of intimate partner violence (IPV) against women across the world and the resulting socioeconomic costs and reproductive and other health consequences for societies, women and their children. Developmental theorists and Feminists have advocated for empowerment of women and properties ownership as a panacea to intimate spousal violence. Yet, the relationship between intimate spousal violence and women property ownership is not clear: The aim of this study is to examine the relationship between women property ownership and intimate spousal violence. The theoretical orientation of the paper is anchored on Household bargaining model and Male backlash model. The method of data collection was triangulated. Two hundred and seventy two questionnaires were distributed to married women with property ownership through snowball method, While twenty in-depth- interviews were conducted with women purposively chosen. Quantitative information obtained was analysed through frequency distribution and simple percentage, while qualitative information was analysed through content analysis and ethnographic summaries. Within, the theoretical orientations of Male backslash and household bargaining models, the findings revealed that majority of women with properties still experience intimate spousal violence. Types of violence experienced by women property owners include emotional and sexual violence. Hypothesis tested at 0.05 significant levels that there is relationship between women property owners and intimate spousal violence was accepted. This is because men want to exert authority and superiority over women whereas the violence is seen as cultural. The paper recommends various strategies in eliminating/curbing intimate spousal violence.

PERSPECTIVES OF THE PARTICIPANTS OF GROUP SUPERVISION ON THE EFFECTS OF SUPERVISION ON THEIR PROFESSIONAL PERFORMANCE Print E-mail

Brigita Rupar[1]

Abstract

This article presents the analysis of focus group interview data from three professional groups: primary school teachers, school counsellors, and principals who were included in a supervision process. The main research focus is on determining the effects of supervision on the participants’ experience of their tasks and responsibilities, their monitoring and analysis of their performance, their self-regulated learning, and other possible effects. The findings show that active learning in the supervision process contributes to better self-awareness and more premeditated action in professional situations, deeper insight into one’s own reactions and clearer distinction between one’s own and other’s responsibility. Supervision also helped the participants to improve their self-regulated performance and their focus on essential aspects of their work.  There were no significant differences among the groups of professionals interviewed, except in the aspects directly related to the specifics of their work.

Key Words: supervision, reflection, self-regulated learning,  teachers, school counsellors, principals

THE PERILS OF CHRONIC ILLNESSES: PATIENTS LIVED EXPERIENCE ANDSOCIETAL REACTIONS IN CENTRAL AND SOUTHWESTERN ETHIOPIA Print E-mail

Dereje Wonde[1], Amanti Baru[2]

Abstract

Chronic illness is one of the chief health and development challenges of contemporary society. As in any other developing countries, Ethiopia is challenged by the rampant chronic illness that created a double tragedy on the society and the health care system, which is already threatened by acute illnesses. The main objective of this study was to investigate patients’ experience and perils of living with chronic illnesses. Both quantitative (sample survey) and qualitative (key informant interview and illness narratives) research methods were employed. Accordingly, 150 chronic illness outpatients visiting health facilities in the data collection period were surveyed.  The informants of qualitative studies were recruited by using purposive sampling technique based on availability basis. Descriptive statistics were employed to analyze the quantitative data, and the qualitative data were summarized and presented concurrently alongside with the quantitative data by hiring thematic analysis technique. The study unearthed that people from all walks of life are vulnerable to chronic illnesses. Chronic illness exposed patients for a number of personal and family problems. Chronic illness has a devastating impact on the livelihood of the patients and impoverishes the households of the patient. The problem of chronic illness is not just a health problem; rather it affects the overall functioning of the society. Thus, chronic illness has to be a national agenda and action oriented commitment is required from the government, NGOs and other concerned bodies to arrest the evils of chronic illness.

COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS OF UNIVERSITY STUDENTS IN DIFFERENT YEARS OF STUDY OF TWO COURSES OF STUDY AT THE FACULTY OF EDUCATION IN LJUBLJANA Print E-mail

Tomaž Vec[1], Tanja Rupnik Vec[2]

Abstract

Critical thinking is recognized as one of the key professional competences. In our study, we wanted to  research whether there were differences in critical thinking skills among the students entering the faculty, concerning some of their socioeconomic and educational characteristics, whether there were differences in critical thinking skills among students of two courses of study, as well as differences in critical thinking among the first-year and third-year students of each course of study, because the results could show the effects of courses of study on the ability of the graduates in this respect. Among the most important conclusions of the research we should emphasize that there were significant differences between the scores of the first-year students in relation to completed secondary school, that there were no differences in critical thinking among the first-year students of two courses of study,  that these differences  in the third-year students were significant, and that the first-year and third-year students of two courses of study  practically showed  no progress in critical thinking skills (except in one sub-test). Final conclusion would be that it would be necessary to introduce in study more specific content and different teaching styles, which would encourage critical thinking skills among students.

Abstract

Introduction: This study investigated the influence of pornography use and socio-environmental factors on risky sexual behavior among in-school youths in Assosa, Ethiopia.

Methods: The study involved a cross-sectional survey of 317 students, FGDs and key-informant interviews.

Results: Pornography use had 24.6 % prevalence among the students. 31.2% of the students have started sexual intercourse, with 22.7% started sex before the age of 18 years. Gender (AOR [95% CI] = 3.2 [1.173, 8.734]), educational status of the students (AOR [95% CI] = 0.141 [0.025, 0.797]), religious attendance (AOR [95% CI] = 0.259 [0.088, 0.765]), pornography use (AOR [95% CI] = 6.401 [1.788, 22.919]) and alcohol use (AOR [95% CI] = 3.449 [1.359, 8.754]) have significantly influenced risky sexual behavior. Qualitative data revealed peer pressure, exposure to western media and less communication with parents about sex as influencing students sexual behavior.

Conclusion: Pornography use and social-environmental factors strongly influenced students’ risky sexual behavior: early sexual initiation, unprotected sexual intercourse and having sex with multiple sexual partners.

Keywords: Pornography, Youths, Risky sexual behavior, students
