  • Postmodernism and educational style. Clarifying discussions

    In the context of all the changes that we feel so acute, from societal level to the individual one, a fresh and updated conception of what education means today is required. Those who offer education (schools, teachers, and mentors) have to respond to the demands imposed by contemporary life, marked by increasing globalization and diversity, conflict and instability, etc. It is natural to believe and to promote the idea that postmodernization of the school (an idea that is not exactly new) will bring about those fundamental changes in the teachers' conceptions and, changes that are so expected and even urgent. This idea of post-modernization of the school will facilitate the resuscitation of education, considered so necessary in the conditions in which the confusion and lability of the system are "insight". This paper proposes two analyses. First, one of the elements that characterize post-modern education. The second analysis captures specific aspects of the dynamics of the structural elements of the educational style, considered a possible revitalizing factor of the educational phenomenon

    These article aims to provide the postmodernist point of view on aesthetics. Nowadays a work of art can no longer be defined within an aesthetical discipline.

  • Child abuse in igboland of nigeria: context and characteristics

    Igboland is located in south-eastern Nigeria and the inhabitants are known for the love they have for children. These children depend on their parents, teachers and extended families for both their physical and psychological well-being. The interaction that the children have with their parents and others influences their physical, emotional, social and intellectual development. Some parents with the intention of teaching values, beliefs, attitudes end up abusing them because of the type of disciplinary methods that they apply. In Igboland, some parents and those who are in charge of children find it hard to detect and identify child abuse and its characteristics. Most of the children who are abused in Igboland display some of the characteristics that are discussed in this work. This paper will help parents and the society to watch for red flags

  • Pilot study concerning school maladjustment in secondary and high school cycles

    This pilot study was carried out on 130 students from secondary and high school cycles, 53 of masculine gender, 77 of feminine gender, with an average age of 14 years (SD 2.67). There were applied the newly created School Maladjustment Questionnaire, in conjunction with a verbal intelligence test (Verbal Recombination) and a nonverbal one (Bonnardel 53), jointly providing an IQ. The study hypotheses predicted the existence of some gender differences concerning school maladjustment (more maladaptive reactions which are internal for girls and external for boys - unconfirmed). These differences are caused by the school cycle (more school maladjustment in high school which was confirmed only for the external component of academic maladjustment). There were predicted significant negative correlations of SMQ with school averages and with intelligence level - these hypotheses were also confirmed

  • The social worker-client relationship: difficulties and solutions

    The social worker-client relationship is a construction that depends on both parties.
