Anneli Paldanius,Kaarina M??tt?
International Journal of Caring Sciences , 2011,
Abstract: Background: Nurses have already for decades tried to develop their work to be based on scientific knowledgeand ethics. Caring has long roots in nursing.Aims: The aim of this article is to analyze the phenomenon of caring in nursing: to identify of which elementscaring (loving caring, love for fellow humans) in nursing is constructed according to nursing students.Methodology: The research subjects are Finnish nursing students (N = 20), who already had experience andknowledge of nursing theory. They were asked to write their views of the meaning of caring and of what kinds offeatures it consists. The data was analyzed with the inductive qualitative content analysis.Results: This article describes and discusses the features and factors of caring in nursing students’ opinionsduring studies, and creates a model of caring.Conclusions: This article pays attention to how learning about caring and caring in nursing could be improvedduring nursing education as the most essential element in nursing is the sensibility to feel love for one’sneighbor.

Abstract: The aim of the work was to compare models of food eating by mothers and their daughters. The study included 97 pairs of mothers (43.3±6.0 years old) and their daughters (16.0±3.1 years old). Food intake was described by food frequency intake method using the calibrated FFQ questionnaire. Products were aggregated into 15 groups using the factor analysis and the tree diagram. Using the clusters analysis separately for mothers and daughters clusters were separated, that corresponded with characteristic eating models. Significant correlation between the amount of food eaten by mothers and daughters was proven for all 15 groups of products (from 0.25 to 0.57; p<0.01). Mothers and daughters had two eating models separated, called moderate (64% of mothers and 65% of daughters) and varying (36% and 35%, respectively). Similar eating models were stated for about 51% of pairs for the moderate model and about 21% of pairs for the varying model. Mothers and daughters with similar eating models differed in intake of only some products, mostly fish and sea fruit, vegetables and juices. In total, a lack of significant differences in the amount of food consumed by mother-daughter pairs was revealed for 67% of products in the varying model and 60% of products in the moderate model. The obtained results indicate on a big similarity of mothers and daughters eating models. It may affect pro-healthy attitudes of girls and finally determine generational influences on people`s health.
Restorying "Caring" in Education: Students’ Narratives of Caring for and about  [cached]
Corinne McKamey
Narrative Works , 2011,
Abstract: In this paper, I use two exemplary narrative case studies to illustrate the multiple ways caring functioned for students in their urban high school context. One case study illustrates how different frames of caring can provide different interpretations of a situation. Another case study shows how caring processes can act in synergistic ways. I conclude by arguing that we should widen our conception of educational care to be inclusive of the complex and overlapping ways that students engage in processes of caring for and caring about.
Food Eating of Mothers and Their Daughters in Relation to Mothers` Body Mass Index  [PDF]

Pakistan Journal of Nutrition , 2007,
Abstract: Similarities in food eating by mothers and daughters were studied in relation to mothers` body mass index. The study included 97 pairs of mothers and daughters aged 43.3 6.0 years and 16.0 3.1 years, respectively. Food eating was determined by the food intake frequency method, using the calibrated FFQ questionnaire. Mothers-daughters family pairs were divided into 3 groups according to terciles of the mothers` BMI. Significant correlation between the amount of food eaten by mothers and daughters was found in both extreme terciles for 75% of products. The obtained results indicate on a significant similarity in food eating by mothers and their daughters, which in a limited degree depended on mothers` body mass. The BMI of overweight mothers was a good predictor of daughters` body mass index, which suggests that family environment promotes obesity among their children.

THE LOVING SEPARATION: A PSYCHOANALYTIC APPROACH
Elen de Paula Ferreira
Psicanálise e Barroco em Revista , 2010,
Abstract: In this work, we approach the decurrent suffering of the loving separation from the theoretical referencial of the Freud’s psychoanalysis. They had been argued, initially, the mechanisms that direct the individual in the choice of a loving object while I will choose narcísica, beyond presenting some considera es on the loving passion, emphasizing its desmedida character of. After that, we deal with the reaction human being front to the loss of a love object. Finally, we approach the attempts of the Ego to surpass the suffering unchained for the separation.
The quality of caring relationships

Psychology Research and Behavior Management , 2009,
Abstract: Tineke A Abma, Barth Oeseburg, Guy AM Widdershoven, Marian VerkerkMedical Humanities/EMGO Institute, VU Medical Center, Amsterdam, The NetherlandsAbstract: In health care, relationships between patients or disabled persons and professionals are at least co-constitutive for the quality of care. Many patients complain about the contacts and communication with caregivers and other professionals. From a care-ethical perspective a good patient-professional relationship requires a process of negotiation and shared understanding about mutual normative expectations. Mismatches between these expectations will lead to misunderstandings or conflicts. If caregivers listen to the narratives of identity of patients, and engage in a deliberative dialogue, they will better be able to attune their care to the needs of patients. We will illustrate this with the stories of three women with multiple sclerosis. Their narratives of identity differ from the narratives that caregivers and others use to understand and identify them. Since identities give rise to normative expectations in all three cases there is a conflict between what the women expect of their caregivers and vice-versa. These stories show that the quality of care, defined as doing the right thing, at the right time, in the right way, for the right person, is dependent on the quality of caring relationships.Keywords: ethics of care, dialogue, responsibilities, narratives, relationships

Surface Loving and Surface Avoiding modes  [PDF]

Physics , 2008, DOI: 10.1140/epjb/e2009-00061-3
Abstract: We theoretically study the propagation of sound waves in GaAs/AlAs superlattices focussing on periodic modes in the vicinity of the band gaps. Based on analytical and numerical calculations, we show that these modes are the product of a quickly oscillating function times a slowly varying envelope function. We carefully study the phase of the envelope function compared to the surface of a semi-infinite superlattice. Especially, the dephasing of the superlattice compared to its surface is a key parameter. We exhibit two kind of modes: Surface Avoiding and Surface Loving Modes whose envelope functions have their minima and respectively maxima in the vicinity of the surface. We finally consider the observability of such modes. While Surface avoiding modes have experimentally been observed (Phys. Rev. Lett. 97, 1224301 (2006)), we show that Surface Loving Modes are likely to be observable and we discuss the achievement of such experiments. The proposed approach could be easily transposed to other types of wave propagation in unidimensional semi-infinite periodic structures as photonic Bragg mirror.
