This volume is the product of a course on longitudinal prospective re search arranged by the three editors in Arhus, Denmark, in 1978. The course was supported by the Nordisk Kulturfond for young researchers from the Nordic countries, who had planned or had simply involved themselves in longitudinal prospective research projects of various kinds. The twenty-six participants represented a wide range of professions: statisticians, psychologists, psychiatrists, nutritionists, and public health researchers. The teachers came from many countries and represented many disciplines. The course was very successful, especially from the point of view of the quality and investment of the teachers. We felt also that the course met a strong need in this relatively new field of research. Therefore, we asked the teachers to prepare written versions of their lectures so that they could have wider dissemination; they agreed to do so. The present book is composed of these contributions. The first chap ter, after outlining some of the problems with traditional strategies in mental health research, goes on to suggest some of the possible preven tive applications of longitudinal research methods. Included in Parts II and III are papers on design problems and on the tools of long-term research, such as genetics and classification, biological measurements, epidemiological guidelines, statistical models, disease registers, and de velopmental psychology

Prospective studies of crime and delinquency by Katherine Teilmann Van Dusen( Book )

10 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Katherine Teilmann Van Dusen and Sarnoff A. Mednick This introduction delineates what we consider to be three of the most important impediments to the advance of knowledge in the field of criminology. The most fundamental need is for more studies of the nature and progress of criminal and delinquent careers. The second need is for more prospective, longitudinal studies of the etiology of crime and delinquency. The third need concerns the lack of interdisciplinary research toward a more integrated understanding of delinquent and criminal behavior. Criminal and Delinquent Careers The birth cohort study by Wolfgang, Figlio and Sellin (1972) was heralded by many (Farrington, 1973; Erickson, 1973; Weis, 1974) as a landmark which allowed researchers to study the course of delinquency without the usual sampling biases that plagued other, cross-sectional research. For the first time, we could get a reasonable picture of when delinquency usually starts, what proportion of the population engages in delinquency, what types of delinquencies they engage in, what proportion continue, and so on. Cross sectional studies do not permit the investigation of careers because cross 1 PROSPECTIVE STUDIES OF CRIME AND DELINQUENCY 2 sectional sampling includes only portions of careers for many of the individuals sampled. This is just one of the many problems that restricted researchers' ability to study the nature of criminal careers

The associative basis of the creative process by Sarnoff A Mednick( Book )

4 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research was conducted to focus on an examination of several aspects of the creative process as well as on the development of a test of creative thinking. The specific objectives were (1) to construct a test which will measure creativity at the high school level, (2) to identify the variables that are effective in influencing the creative process, and (3) to refine a theory of creative thinking. A number of studies using different methods were pursued--(1) a development of the remote associates test (rat), a test of creative thinking, which is derived from an associative theory of creativity, and (2) studies of the creative process in terms of associative theory. These studies, related to each other in that all test hypotheses stemmed from an associative theory, were (1) continual association as a function of level of creativity and type of verbal stimulus, (2) an associative interpretation of verbal relatedness, (3) incubation of creative performance and specific associative priming, (4) creativity and the need for novelty, (5) some effects of conflict in creative thinking, (6) creative potential and childhood antecedents, (7) factors affecting the manifestation of creative associative relatedness in verbal transfer. Each of the nine separate studies had their own independent experimental design which included objectives, procedure results, and conclusions. (Hb)
Early intervention in psychotic disorders by Tandy Miller( )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The papers presented here, written by experts from all parts of the globe, describe efforts that represent a revolutionary moment in the treatment of schizophrenia disorders as, with caution, we begin to shift the standard of treatment toward early intervention and prevention. Contributions are organised according to the early course of psychosis. The book is of critical importance to anyone interested in psychotic disorders and the revolutionary impact that the field of early detection and intervention is having on traditional conceptualisations of psychotic illness
