Worterkl rungen - Burnout The onset is slow. The early sumptoms include a feeling of emotional and physical exhaustion; a sense of alienation, cynicism, impatience, negativism and feelings of detachment to the point that the individual begins to resent work involved and the people who are a part of that work. In extreme cases, the individual who once cared very deeply about a project or a group will insulate himself to the point that he no longer cares at all. The irony of burnout is that it happens to the same person who previously was enthusiastic and brimming over with energy and new ideas when first involved in a job or a new situation. This type of person generally has a very high expectation of what can be accomplished. Three things are associated with burnout: role conflict: A person who has conflicting responsibilities will begin to feel pulled in many directions and will try to do everything equally well without setting priorities.

Scandinavian - Scandinavian America - Immigration...- Classroom Presentation Scandinavian America The Scandinavian immigrants not only built new lives in the United States; they also built a new culture. As immigrants from Scandinavia flooded into sparsely populated areas of the U.S., they helped create a particularly Scandinavian way of life, melding the varied religious, culinary, literary, and linguistic traditions that they brought with them with those that they found in their new country. During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, in the Great Lakes states, the northern Great Plains, and in enclaves scattered among northern U.S. cities, a visitor might imagine that he or she was traveling through a unique new nation—Scandinavian America. Language and Education As Scandinavian immigrants arrived in the U.S., they brought a diverse group of native languages with them, and they quickly established institutions to nurture and promote their linguistic heritage. Many Scandinavians also took an active role in the burgeoning U.S. labor movement.
Research shows what you say about others says a lot about you How positively you see others is linked to how happy, kind-hearted and emotionally stable you are, according to new research by a Wake Forest University psychology professor. "Your perceptions of others reveal so much about your own personality," says Dustin Wood, assistant professor of psychology at Wake Forest and lead author of the study, about his findings. By asking study participants to each rate positive and negative characteristics of just three people, the researchers were able to find out important information about the rater's well-being, mental health, social attitudes and how they were judged by others. The study appears in the July issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology . The researchers found a person's tendency to describe others in positive terms is an important indicator of the positivity of the person's own personality traits. "Seeing others positively reveals our own positive traits," Wood says. Source: Wake Forest University

Passive Aggressive Behavior: A Form of Covert Abuse Passive Aggressive behavior is a form of covert abuse. When someone hits you or yells at you, you know that you've been abused. It is obvious and easily identified. Passive aggressive behavior stems from an inability to express anger in a healthy way. Common Passive Aggressive Behaviors: Ambiguity: I think of the proverb, "Actions speak louder than words" when it comes to the passive aggressive and how ambiguous they can be. The Passive Aggressive and You: The passive aggressive needs to have a relationship with someone who can be the object of his or her hostility. The biggest frustration in being with a passive aggressive is that they never follow through on agreements and promises. The passive aggressive ignores problems in the relationship, sees things through their own skewed sense of reality and if forced to deal with the problems will completely withdraw from the relationship and you.
Documentary Log What Do All Babies Need Yet Aren't Getting Equally? To break the cycle of poverty, young children need something that’s as free and abundant as air. An extraordinary program is giving it to them. Russ and Reyn for Reader’s Digest Babies need a few basic things to get started: mother’s milk, or something like it; love, attention, and playtime; clean clothes; and a safe place to sleep. All over the world, high- or low-income, desert or forest, high-rise or countryside, doting parents give their babies these essentials. Many low-income American children are suffering from a shortage of words—songs, nursery rhymes, storybooks, chitchat, everyday stuff. In many low-income families, warm and loving parents may struggle desperately to provide all the other basics, without a clue that their relative silence—and the lack of bedtime stories, picture books, and lullabies—hurts the babies. The deficit has astounding and bitter consequences. She’s used to being on her own. “Here’s a child on his first day of kindergarten,” Walzer says. “I like Dora!”
