  • O impacto dos acontecimentos significativos no processo terapêutico: Um
           estudo de caso de sucesso

    • Abstract: Este estudo teve como objetivo descrever os impactos associados aos acontecimentos significativos, identificados pelo cliente e terapeuta, ao longo de um caso de sucesso clínico. Utilizámos a metodologia de estudo de caso, com um cliente adulto, diagnosticado com perturbação de pânico e acompanhado em terapia comportamental e cognitiva. A versão portuguesa do questionário Helpful Aspects of Therapy foi administrada em todas as sessões para a recolha dos acontecimentos significativos e respetivos impactos. Categorizámos o tipo de impacto percebido a partir de uma grelha de análise temática construída com base na literatura. Os resultados mostram diferenças nos impactos percebidos pela terapeuta e pelo cliente. Enquanto para a terapeuta esses impactos incidiram sobre as categorias de Orientação, Autocompreensão, Sensação de fortalecimento e Mudança de comportamento, para o cliente os impactos percebidos incidiram nas categorias de Autocompreensão e Sensação de fortalecimento. Estes resultados sugerem que ambas as perspetivas devem ser consideradas na compreensão do que é útil para a mudança do cliente e que o terapeuta deve atender à possibilidade de emergirem outros possíveis impactos no cliente, alinhando a sua intervenção no sentido de os potenciar e contribuir dessa forma para a mudança do cliente.This study aimed to describe the therapy significant events’ impacts, identified by the client and the therapist, throughout a good outcome case. We used a methodology of case study with an adult client diagnosed with panic disorder and followed in cognitive-behavioral therapy. The Portuguese version of the Helpful Aspects of Therapy questionnaire was administered over all sessions to collect the significant events and their helpful impacts. We categorized the type of impact using a system of thematic categories, based on literature. The results showed that impacts, identified by the therapist and the client, were different. Whereas for the therapist these impacts were focused on categories such as Guidance, Self-understanding, Empowerment and Behavioral Change, for the client the impacts were focused on Self-understanding and Empowerment. The results suggest that both perspectives should be considered in order to better understand what is helpful to the client’s change. Moreover the therapist should be sensitive to other possible impacts on the client, aligning his or her intervention accordingly and contributing in this way to the client change.
  • Pretest of images associated with the expertise dimension

    • Abstract: In this paper, we present norms concerning the perceived association that two sets of stimuli (photos of people and photos of objects) establish with the concept of expertise. Participants were presented with a set of words associated with the expertise dimension and subsequently asked to judge each stimulus on how much it related with the learned (expertise) dimension on a 7-point scale (1 - Not at all related; 7 - Very related). The interpretation of means’ confidence intervals allowed us to distinguish between images highly related with the expertise dimension and images highly unrelated with this dimension. Summarized results are presented and photos made available to support future research requiring stimuli associated with the expertise dimension.Neste trabalho apresentamos normas de associação percebida de dois tipos de estímulos (imagens de pessoas e imagens de objectos) com o constructo de “perícia” (expertise). Os participantes foram expostos a um conjunto de palavras associadas com o constructo de perícia e subsequentemente avaliaram cada imagem relativamente ao quanto estas se relacionam com o constructo aprendido numa escala de 7 pontos (1 - Nada relacionada; 7 - Muito relacionada). A interpretação dos intervalos de confiança das médias permitiu distinguir entre imagens altamente relacionadas com o constructo de perícia e imagens não relacionadas com este constructo. Os resultados obtidos são apresentados e discutidos e as imagens testadas são disponibilizadas de forma a apoiar futuros estudos que requisitem estímulos associados ao constructo de perícia.
  • Risco e regulação emocional em idade pré-escolar: A qualidade das
           interações dos educadores de infância como potencial moderador

    • Abstract: A investigação tem demonstrado que as crianças em desvantagem social enfrentam muitos desafios e estão mais vulneráveis a desenvolver dificuldades ao nível da regulação emocional, sendo extremamente relevante identificar fatores protetores que moderem esta vulnerabilidade, de modo a identificar formas de alterar as trajetórias desenvolvimentais. No presente estudo, foi analisado o papel moderador das interações do educador de infância no desenvolvimento da regulação emocional. Os participantes incluíram 345 crianças em idade pré-escolar de dois ambientes sociais distintos: em risco sociocultural (n=183) e em situação de não risco sociocultural. A regulação emocional foi avaliada através de um questionário ao educador, o Emotion Regulation Checklist (ERC; Shields & Cichetti, 1997). A qualidade das interações do educador de infância com as crianças foi observada através de uma escala de observação, o Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS; Pianta, La Paro & Hamre, 2008). Os educadores avaliaram ainda a sua relação com cada criança participante através da Student-Teacher Rating Scale (STRS; Pianta, 2001). Análises multi-grupo multinível indicaram que no grupo de crianças de risco socicultural, em salas em que os educadores de infância estabeleciam interações com mais qualidade a nível emocional e organizacional, as crianças demonstraram competências de regulação emocional mais elevadas, o que sugere o importante papel das interações dos educadores de infância com as crianças no desenvolvimento da regulação emocional.Research has shown that socially disadvantaged children faces may social challenges and are more vulnerable to display poor levels of emotional regulation. It seems therefore extremely important to identify protective factors that can change the developmental trajectories. In this study, we examine the moderating role of teacher-child interactions in the development of emotional regulation. Participants were 345 preschool children from two distinct social sites: at-risk (n=183) and non-risk. Emotional regulation was assessed through a teacher report, the Emotion Regulation Checklist (ERC; Shields & Cichetti, 1997). The quality of teacher-child interactions was observed through a rating scale, Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS; Pianta, La Paro, & Hamre, 2008). Teachers additionally reported on the quality of the relationships with children using the Student-Teacher Rating Scale (STRS; Pianta, 2001). Multilevel multigroup analyses indicated that in the at-risk group, children showed higher levels of emotional regulation in classrooms in which the teachers show higher levels of quality of emotional and organization interactions. Results point to the important role of teachers in the development of emotional regulation skills for at-risk children.
  • Grooming online em Portugal: Um estudo

    • Abstract: O grooming online - aliciamento de crianças e jovens através da internet - tem sido alvo de preocupação e estudos a nível internacional. No entanto, o contexto português caracteriza-se pelo relativo desconhecimento sobre o fenómeno. O presente estudo tem como objetivos conhecer as experiências, perceções e inseguranças dos/as jovens acerca do grooming online, bem como revelar números de vitimação. Pretende-se, ainda, analisar as diferenças de género e etárias, quer ao nível da vitimação quer ao nível da perceção da gravidade do grooming online e do sentimento de insegurança relativamente ao fenómeno. Optou-se por um estudo exploratório de natureza quantitativa e os dados foram recolhidos através de um questionário construído para o efeito. A amostra foi constituída por 151 participantes, 76 (50,3%) do sexo masculino e 75 (49,7%) do sexo feminino. Os resultados encontrados neste estudo, nomeadamente uma percentagem de 20,5% de vitimação por grooming online, revelam uma realidade preocupante em Portugal, pelo que este fenómeno deve ser alvo de maior atenção e discussão no nosso país, inclusive através de modificações legislativas para que se possa atuar sobre o mesmo.The online grooming - grooming of children and teenagers over the internet - has been the subject of concern among international studies. However, the portuguese context is characterized by the relative lack of knowledge about the phenomenon. This study aims to learn the experiences, perceptions and insecurities of young people about online grooming, as well as to reveal numbers of victimization. We intend also to analyze gender and age differences, both in terms of victimization both in terms of perception of the severity of online grooming and feeling of insecurity regarding the phenomenon. We opted for an exploratory quantitative study and data was collected through a questionnaire prepared for that purpose. The sample consisted of 151 participants, 76 (50.3%) were male and 75 (49.7%) were female. The results of this study, especially a percentage of 20.5% of victimization by online grooming, reveal a disturbing reality in Portugal, so this phenomenon should be given more attention and discussion in our country, including through legislative changes so you can act on it.
  • A prematuridade na perspectiva de mães primíparas e multíparas:
           Análise do seu estado psicoemocional, autoestima e bonding

    • Abstract: A literatura tem referido que a prematuridade do bebé gera nas mães níveis mais elevados de ansiedade, sentimentos depressivos, assim como níveis mais baixos de autoestima, comparativamente com mães de bebés de termo, o que poderá conduzir a um envolvimento emocional mais negativo com o recém-nascido. Essa vivência parece variar em função da paridade das mães (i.e., mãe pela primeira vez vs. multípara) não obstante não serem muito claras as particularidades desta variável. Este estudo teve como objetivo analisar num grupo de mães primíparas e multíparas com bebés prematuros, as associações entre o estado Psicoemocional, a Autoestima e o Bonding maternos. Participaram 50 mães (27 primíparas e 23 multíparas), com bebés pré-termo recrutados numa maternidade pública de Lisboa. Os resultados indicam que as mães multíparas apresentam níveis mais elevados de Sentimentos Depressivos expressando, também, uma maior Capacidade e Preparação Geral para a função materna. A Capacidade Geral para tratar do bebé surge associada de forma negativa com o seu estado Psicoemocional e de forma positiva com o Bonding. As associações negativas encontradas entre Ansiedade e Aceitação do bebé, e entre Estado Psicoemocional e Bonding não parecem variar em função da paridade, mostrando que os desafios se colocam a ambos os grupos de mães.Literature has been showing that prematurity leads mothers to increase their levels of anxiety, depressive feelings and to decrease their self-esteem, when compared to mothers with pre-term babies. Such experience seems to be different if we take into account mothers’ parity although there are no clear evidences on that. This study aims at analyzing in primipara and multipara mothers of premature babies the associations between psycho-emotional state, maternal self-esteem and bonding. Participants were 50 mothers (27 primipara and 23 multipara) with pre-term babies from a public maternity in Lisbon. Results showed that multipara mothers express more Depressive feelings but simultaneously a greater Capacity and overall preparation for the maternity role. Nevertheless their Capacity for providing care (to the baby) is negatively associated with their psycho-emotional state and positively associated with bonding. Negative associations between Anxiety and Acceptance of the baby, and between psycho-emotional state and Bonding do not vary as a function of parity showing that having a pre-term baby can be a challenge for both primipara and multipara mothers.
  • Avaliação de um programa de promoção de habilidades
           sociais para idosos

    • Abstract: Evidências na literatura apontam a importância da qualidade nos relacionamentos sociais, mas não fornecem dados suficientes que indiquem como auxiliar os idosos a se tornarem socialmente competentes. O presente estudo pretende avaliar a eficácia de um Programa de Promoção de Habilidades Sociais para Idosos (PHSI). A pesquisa contou com a participação de 40 idosos de uma Universidade da Terceira Idade. O grupo experimental reuniu 20 pessoas com idades que variavam de 62 a 83 anos (M=69,4; DP=6,05) e o grupo controle apresentou 20 idosos com idades que variavam de 60 a 74 anos (M=67,1; DP=4,61). As habilidades sociais foram avaliadas antes e depois da intervenção com follow-up por meio de uma medida de autorrelato e o desempenho através de jogos de papéis em sete situações sociais. Os resultados apontaram melhora significativa no desempenho social dos participantes do grupo experimental, em relação ao grupo controle, nos contextos envolvendo conflito de interesses. Análises intragrupos também confirmaram uma melhora na capacidade de lidar com situações interpessoais que demandam a afirmação e defesa de direitos. Esses resultados constatam que o Programa criado promoveu habilidades assertivas, previamente apontadas na literatura como deficitárias na população de idosos.Evidence in the literature point to the importance of quality in social relationships, but do not provide enough data that indicates how to assist the elderly to become socially competent. This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of a Program to Promotion Social Skills for the Elderly. The research had the participation of 40 students at the University of the Third Age. The experimental group included 20 people with ages between 62-83 years (M=69.4; SD=6.05) and the control group had 20 elderly with ages between 60-74 years (M=67.1; SD=4.61). Social skills were checked before and after intervention with follow-up through a measure of self-report and performance through role play situations. The results showed significant improvement in social performance of the participants in the experimental group compared to the control group, in contexts involving conflict of interest. Intragroup analysis also confirmed an improvement in the capacity to handle interpersonal situations that require the affirmation and defense of rights. These results find that the created program promoted assertive skills, previously identified in the literature as deficient in the elderly people.
  • Resposta coletiva compassiva: Impacto de estrutura e missão

    • Abstract: A capacidade coletiva compassiva tem claras implicações no desempenho e no bem-estar dos indivíduos no contexto organizacional (Lilius, Worline, Maitlis, Kanov, Dutton, & Frost, 2008). O presente estudo tem como objetivo descrever a forma como o efeito combinado de práticas e características de flexibilização de estrutura organizacional contribuem para o aumento de respostas coletivas compassivas (RCC) em organizações com missão pró-social, quando comparadas com organizações cuja missão é focada na produtividade. Este objetivo tem como pressuposto que todas as organizações, independentemente da sua missão (pró-social vs. produtiva), podem ter a capacidade de se auto-organizar de forma compassiva para minimizar o sofrimento dos colaboradores, embora o possam fazer através de mecanismos diferentes. Esta resposta poderá, contudo, ser mais facilitada nas organizações com uma estrutura flexível e com valores culturais humanizadosA compassionate collective capacity has clear implications on performance and well-being of individuals in the context of organizations (Lilius, Worline, Maitlis, Kanov, Dutton, & Frost, 2008). This study aims to describe how the combined effect of organizational and structural characteristics of flexibility practices contributes to the increase of compassionate collective responses (in organizations with pro-social mission vs. mission focused on productivity). This objective presupposes that regardless of their mission (prosocial vs. productive), all organizations may have the capacity to self-organize in a compassionate manner to minimize the suffering of employees, although they can do so through different mechanisms. This response may, however, be more facilitated in organizations with a flexible and humanized cultural values.
  • Como podem as organizações gerir paradoxos'

    • Abstract: As organizações participam em ambientes que, além de complexos, são repletos de ambiguidade e de exigências contraditórias. A capacidade de trabalhar com os paradoxos é necessária para responder a essa complexidade ambiental. Este artigo discute como esse desafio pode ser levado a cabo. Começa por esclarecer a diferença entre processos por vezes equiparados a paradoxos por envolverem contradições, nomeadamente dilemas e dialéticas. Trata, depois, de diferentes possibilidades de resposta às situações paradoxais. Discute, finalmente, como dessas respostas podem resultar círculos viciosos versus virtuosos.Organizations participate in environments that are not only complex, but also replete with ambiguity and contradictory demands. The capacity to work with paradox is necessary to respond to environmental complexity itself. This article discusses how that challenge may be handled. First, it establishes the difference between processes that are often confused because they all involve an element of contradiction, namely dilemmas, paradoxes and dialectics. Then, it discusses different ways/responses to handle paradoxical situations. Finally, it discusses how those ways/responses may result in virtuous versus vicious circles.
  • Inteligência espiritual: Validação preliminar da versão portuguesa da
           Escala de Inteligência Espiritual Integrada (EIEI)

    • Abstract: Amram e Dryer (2008) propõem o construto de Inteligência Espiritual [IE] e defendem a inclusão da mesma na Teoria das Inteligências Múltiplas de Gardner. Os autores apontam 5 dimensões para a IEs: “Consciência”, “Transcendência”, “Graça”, “Verdade” e “Significado” que compõem a Integrated Spiritual Inteligence Scale [ISIS]. A presente investigação visa apresentar os dados preliminares de validação de um novo instrumento para avaliação do conceito de inteligência espiritual, na população portuguesa. Participaram no estudo 714 sujeitos, 257 do sexo masculino e 461 do sexo feminino, com idades compreendidas entre os 14 e os 81 anos. A aplicação dos instrumentos realizou-se online e além da utilização da Escala de Inteligência Espiritual Integrada usámos um questionário sociodemográfico com o intuito de caracterizar a amostra. A escala apresenta uma estrutura penta fatorial (“Coping religioso e espiritual”, “Consciência”, “Graça”, “Significado” e “Missão”). No estudo da consistência interna obtêm-se valores de alpha de Cronbach situados entre os 0.67 e 0.88, e de 0.92 para a escala total. Nesta versão preliminar as dimensões obtidas não foram congruentes com a escala original. Apesar de serem necessários estudos posteriores que se debrucem sobre a validade convergente e discriminante, e uma confirmação da estabilidade da estrutura fatorial obtida em nova amostra, este trabalho constitui um contributo relevante para a análise crítica deste novo constructo, assim como se assume como ponto de partida para outras pesquisas na área da Inteligência Espiritual.Amram and Dryer (2008) suggest a vision of Spiritual Intelligence that can be encompassed in the Multiple Intelligences Theory by Gardner. The authors point 5 domains “Consciousness”, “Transcendence”, “Grace”, “Truth” and “Meaning” that compose the Integrated Spiritual Intelligence Scale [ISIS]. The present investigation aimed to realize a preliminary validation of the Portuguese version of ISIS. A sample of 714 subjects, 257 males and 461 females, aged between 14 and 81 years took part of the study. The implementation of the instruments was performed online and besides the use of Integrated Spiritual Intelligence Scale, we used also a socio-demographic questionnaire in order to characterize the sample. The results showed a Cronbach’s alpha values lying between 0.67 and 0.88. The value of Cronbach’s alpha for the total scale is 0.92. A penta factorial structure was found (“Religious and Spiritual Coping”, “Consciousness”, “Grace”, “Meaning” and “Mission”). In this preliminary version the domains were not congruent with the original scale. Although they are necessary further studies that focus on the convergent and discriminant validity, and a confirmation of the stability of the factor structure obtained in new sample, this work is an important contribution to the review of this new construct, and is assumed as a point of departure for further research in the area of Spiritual Intelligence.
