Davis, Elizabeth L. – Child Development, 2016
Emotion regulation predicts positive academic outcomes like learning, but little is known about "why". Effective emotion regulation likely promotes learning by broadening the scope of what may be attended to after an emotional event. One hundred twenty-six 6- to 13-year-olds' (54% boys) regulation of sadness was examined for changes in…

Göksoy, Süleyman – Universal Journal of Educational Research, 2017
Many research carried out so far have demonstrated that there is a direct relationship between individuals' happiness and aspects of their behaviours. That is to say, happiness has a positive relationship with life quality, job satisfaction, aggression, self-efficacy levels of individuals, vitality, optimism, altruism (self-sacrifice for the…

Waite, S.; Goodenough, A.; Norris, V.; Puttick, N. – Pastoral Care in Education, 2016
Pastoral care in education may take many forms but increasing emphasis on education for sustainable development (ESD) and concern about children's disconnection from nature suggests that our understanding of care should perhaps encompass the more than human world. The study described in this article examines longer term perspectives on well-being…

Pe, Madeline Lee; Koval, Peter; Kuppens, Peter – Cognition, 2013
A growing literature shows that the ability to control affective information in working memory (WM) plays an important role in emotional functioning. Whereas most studies have focused on executive processes relating to emotion dysregulation and mood disorders, few, if any, have looked at such processes in association with happiness. In this study,…

Baldacchino, John – Review of Education, Pedagogy & Cultural Studies, 2017
Maxine Greene's unique approach to education is primarily exciting because before she ever engages with teaching, or learning, or a school, or classroom, she engages with human beings who live in a society and who partake of its senses--the good, the bad, the beautiful, and the ugly. Before she engages in the mechanisms of education, she begins…

"Inhibitory control" is a cognitive mechanism that contributes to successful self-control (i.e., adherence to a long-term goal in the face of an interfering short-term goal). This research explored the effect of imagined positive emotional events on inhibition. The authors proposed that the influence of imagined emotions on inhibition…

Beard, Renee L.; Fetterman, David J.; Wu, Bei; Bryant, Lucinda – Gerontologist, 2009
Purpose: Most individuals with Alzheimer's are cared for in their homes by unpaid family members. Research on caregiving focuses disproportionally on costs of care, service utilization, and negative psychosocial outcomes. Few narrative accounts of Alzheimer's exist; those that do suffer similar pejorative framings and narrow foci. No studies that…

In medical terminology anamnestic denotes "based on memory". The ACSA uses…

Burdette, Kimberly – About Campus, 2007
In this article, the author recalls and shares the first half of her college journey. Her memories do not play back to her in bursts of sounds or colors; friends or lovers; feelings, touches, tastes, or ideas. They play, rather, as silent images of herself that flicker disjointedly across her mind, the lens of her memory having recorded her…

Cardone, Kenneth – New England Journal of Higher Education, 2009
Beating the competition with restaurant-style dining, wood-fired pizza ovens, espresso machines and organic vegetables is one of many ways for colleges to attract and hold the best and brightest. It also seems that fond food memories fuel alumni associations, which increase attendance at reunions and boost giving. But is it just an arms race with…

Pippel, Midge – Principal, 1994
A bit of kindness can make a principal lifelong hero or heroine in child's memory. Principals can create joy and happiness for students by working with them on plays, calling child's parents to praise positive achievement, publishing children's poems and drawings in the district newsletter, displaying student art work on bulletin boards, and…

Gerson, Mary-Joan – 1978
A multivariate exploration of the characteristics of women who want children and what women see as the benefits and costs of motherhood are presented.
