Doing Phenomenological Research and Writing.

Qual Health Res 2021 May;31(6):1069-1082

University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

When looking through phenomenology articles in human science and philosophy journals, we may be excused to get the impression that they offer an inconsistent array of phenomenology publications. In this article, we describe three simple but helpful distinctions for determining some order: first, the great foundational publications; second, exegetical publications in the wake of the great works; and third, phenomenological studies done directly on phenomena. Our aim in this article is not to lay claim to phenomenology as a label but rather to discuss how "doing phenomenology directly on the phenomena and the things" means taking up a certain attitude and practicing an attentive awareness to the things of the world as we live and experience them.

Using dynamical systems mathematical modeling to examine the impact emotional expression on the therapeutic relationship: A demonstration across three psychotherapeutic theoretical approaches.

Psychother Res 2021 May 6:1-15. Epub 2021 May 6.

Department of Counselor Education, Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton, FL, USA.

The purpose of this paper is to describe an approach to dynamical systems (DS) using a set of differential equations, and how an application of these equations can be used to address a critical element of the therapeutic relationship. Using APA's and videos, DS models were created for each of the six sessions with expert clinicians (Judith Beck, Leslie Greenberg, and Nancy McWilliams) from the three theoretical approaches. A second-by-second observational coding system of the emotional exchanges of the therapists and clients was used as the data for the equations. Read More

Health and Disease Are Dynamic Complex-Adaptive States Implications for Practice and Research.

Front Psychiatry 2021 29;12:595124. Epub 2021 Mar 29.

Faculty of Health and Medicine, School of Medicine and Public Health, University of Newcastle, Callaghan, NSW, Australia.

Interoception, the ability to convey one's overall physiological state, allows people to describe their health along an experiential continuum, from excellent, very good, good, fair to poor. Each health state reflects a distinct pattern of one's overall function. This assay provides a new frame of understanding health and disease as complex-adaptive system states of the person as-a-whole. Read More

Department of Interdisciplinary Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, Institute of Health and Society, University of Oslo, Box 1089, Blindern, 0317, Oslo, Norway.

Background: Fibromyalgia (FM) is a contested, chronic widespread pain syndrome on which recommended therapies have short-lasting, moderate effects. Nevertheless, some patients become symptom-free, and their recovery experiences inspired us to develop a patient-centred recovery-oriented programme (PROP) delivered in a group format. Presently, we describe the theoretical rationale, purpose and content of the PROP, and its meanings for clinicians and patients. Read More

Translating evidence-based behavioral weight loss into a multi-level, community intervention within a community-based participatory research framework: the Wellness Engagement (WE) Project.

Transl Behav Med 2021 Apr 5. Epub 2021 Apr 5.

Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine, Department of Health Behavior and Policy, Richmond, VA, USA.

Black Americans and individuals from economically disadvantaged backgrounds are at disproportionate risk for obesity, yet are underrepresented in behavioral weight loss (BWL) trials and experience less benefit from traditional programs. The Wellness Engagement (WE) Project sought to translate evidence-based BWL within a CBPR framework to promote change across multiple domains of influence in an under-resourced, predominantly Black community. The purpose of this paper is to describe the efforts we undertook to translate data from our extensive formative phase into programming well suited to meet the needs of the Petersburg community.

We studied three grassland locations in the Pacific Northwest, USA, to (1) describe variability in spider communities, (2) identify environmental variables that may underlie patterns in spider communities, and (3) determine whether spiders and environmental variables differ between actively (removal of disturbances, then plant with natives) vs. passively restored sites (removal of disturbance only).

Witnessing Quality of Life of Persons with Profound Intellectual and Multiple Disabilities. A practical-Philosophical Approach.

Health Care Anal 2021 Jun 17;29(2):144-153. Epub 2021 Mar 17.

Section of Medical Ethics, Department of General Practice, Amsterdam University Medical Center, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Persons with profound intellectual and multiple disabilities (PIMD) cannot speak about their Quality of Life (QoL), which makes it necessary to involve others. In current approaches, these 'others' are seen as assessors trying to describe QoL as objectively as possible, which involves a reduction of their experiences, through which they develop knowledge on the QoL of the person with PIMD. The objective of this paper is to give caregivers' knowledge on the QoL of a person with PIMD a theoretical basis that values these experiences. Read More
