Television and social behavior : reports and papers by National Institute of Mental Health (U.S.)( Book )

11 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 833 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Any attempt to gain insight into the effects of television on the viewing public must also include an assessment of the amount and patterns of viewing by the various segments of the general population. This fourth volume of technical reports to the Scientific Advisory Committee on Television and Social Behavior attempts to provide a new picture of how much and what kind of television people watch in the 1970s. After an overview, eight research projects are reported. They range from general studies of national samples to studies which focus either on specific subpopulations or on audiences for specific types of programs. Findings of the several studies include that television has become more interwoven into our lives, but its hold on our attention has perhaps been reduced; that the public has become more critical of the medium, especially of commercials; that heavy versus light viewing of television per se no longer discriminates among children the way it did in the 1959 study of Schramm, Lyle, and Parker; that television is more likely to be used to fill time that would otherwise be used for generally "nonconstructive" activities; that there is learning from television; and that viewing of violent programs tends to increase according to the amount of viewing done in the company of parents.

Dyslexia : an appraisal of current knowledge by National institute of mental health conference on dyslexia( Book )

6 editions published between 1978 and 1979 in English and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 22 chapters of this book provide an analysis of current thinking about the condition known as "developmental dyslexia,""specific reading disability," or "specific reading retardation." Leading investigators were commissioned to critically examine the scientific literature on dyslexia in various research areas and to write comprehensive state-of-the-art reviews. Topics of the major sections of the book are the nature and prevalence of dyslexia, psychological factors, neurobehavioral research, electroencephalographic and neurophysiological studies, genetic factors, early detection and preventive intervention, and remediation and instructional techniques. The conclusion notes that a satisfactory understanding of the nature of this disorder has not been achieved and that specific treatment and remediation methods of proven effectiveness have still to be developed.

Human aging; a biological and behavioral study by National Institute of Mental Health (U.S.)( Book )

25 editions published between 1963 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many of the more serious public health problems of our day relate to the later years of life; and one of the most challenging issues for scholarly study is the mystery of the phenomenon of aging itself. This volume presents the efforts of 22 investigators and is primarily directed toward the understanding of the aging experience and the processes it involves. However, consonant with the premise of science that pure inquiry affords practical consequences, the public health implications of this work are obvious. Two strategies are clear in this study: first, the selection of the healthy, community-dwelling aged so that we may look anew at the prevailing ideas and research findings concerning the aged and aging which heretofore have stemmed primarily from studies of the sick and institutionalized; second, the introduction of the collaborative, multidisciplinary approach so that there can be a more complete and accurate evaluation of the many factors known, or believed, to determine the overt manifestations of aging. As important as the substantive findings, are the methods used in the research investigations. Despite the public health significance of the problems affecting the aged, ranging from sensory handicaps, to housing, to mental and physical illness, there has been a relative neglect of the study, care, and treatment of the aged. Basic inquiry into the final stages of life, therefore, is a welcome contribution to our public health effort in this country. It is opportune in many ways that this volume appears now at a time of increased national concern for the welfare of our older citizens and for the study and improvement of their health and welfare.

Understanding panic disorder by Mary Lynn Hendrix( Book )

4 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This booklet is part of the National Institute of Mental Health's efforts to educate the public and health care professionals about panic disorder. Discussed here are the causes, definition, and symptoms of the disorder. Panic attacks, which can seriously interfere with a person's life, may strike more than three million U.S. citizens at some time in their lives. Individuals who suffer panic attacks may also develop phobias, especially agoraphobia, in which a person avoids places or situations where help may not be forthcoming if an attack occurs. Treatment, it is claimed, can bring significant relief to 70 to 90 percent of people with panic disorder. Several kinds of treatment approaches, by themselves or in combination, may be effective: (1) cognitive-behavioral therapy, where the person modifies or eliminates troublesome thought patterns and behaviors; (2) pharmacotherapy, in which prescription medication is used both to prevent panic attacks or reduce their frequency and severity; and (3) psychodynamic therapy, where the therapist and the patient work together to uncover emotional conflicts which may underlie the patient's problems. Other conditions may accompany a panic disorder and health care personnel should be careful to identify these. The reader will find strategies and tips on how to cope with a panic attack, as well as information on where individuals may seek further help. (Rjm)
