When an urbanfarming strategy is introduced to an open land it may affect the neighbouring activities, mainly residential.
What are the parameters to be studied to find out the impact?Mainly ecologically and psychologically?
Can this develop a new culture of farming in urban dwellers, and later they practise farming inside their house?
In psychology, we have many approaches to base our evaluation and treatment of a patient, such as psychology of education, community psychology, social psychology, humanistic approach, cognitive-behavioural approach, neuropsychological approach, industrial-organizational approach, psychodynamic, etc. I get that some approaches don't fit with the level of target/observation (e.g. I/O psychology for a single mother at home dealing with major depression), and that each one is a tool in the toolbox for a specific need and objective, but I ask for a possible integration of similar or potentially complementary approaches (neuropsy with TCC or humanistic with ecological model of Bronfenbrenner confirmed with neuropsy, etc.). In summary, I am curious of what has been proposed to build a sort of unity with some of the approaches in modern psychology.
In human life problems are inevitable and omnipresent. Be it common day to day problems or major social, economical, ecological, psychological, ethical,emotional or philosophical ones.
Solving a problem is always tricky,costly and time consuming.
Wikipedia says, "Problem solving consists of using generic or ad hoc methods in an orderly manner to find solutions to problems".
It is really difficult to eradicate problems completely from every corner of the world at a particular time permanently. Even if it is solved or resolved......It reappears at some other areas of this world at some other point of time.
So, can we really solve a problem......as often claimed by leaders, reformers, scientists, saints or many other so-called BIG persons?
As those versed in ecological psychology know well, Gibson's approach was hard externalist and he made no effort to explain the internal neurological process involved in taking action wrt an affordance. So there is an explanatory gap which afaik, remains to be filled. (That is not to say that conventional internalist explanations do not have explanatory gaps :) I'd like to hear perspectives.

Hi, may I know which part of the gene region you are targeting to control the circadian rhythm? What is the model organism used?
I'm looking for studies in the fields of social and environmental psychology on perception of air quality by European citizens (and comparison between countries).
There are many different projects and activities that aim to reconnect people to 'nature' in one way or another (e.g. forest schools, family bushcraft days, ecotherapy sessions, residential camps for teenagers, arts-based forest projects, etc). I'm interested in how these programs are currently evaluated and what criteria are used to determine whether or not they are 'effective'. I would be grateful for any references, websites, or personal experiences if you are willing to share them.
As we trundle along through our life's pursuits, there are causal forces at work that determine our future thoughts and actions.
Given some of the work that highlights the central role of exploratory movement for perception (that we act to detect information about the environment), it is possible that these constraints from the past determine solely our behavioral patterns, which in turn constrain the aspects of the environment that we perceive.
The case can also be made that past experience determines our interpretations of sensory stimulation and thus the actions engaged to select those sensations (following along the lines of Helmholtz' theory of unconscious inference). Of course both of these hypotheses may also be false!
Does past experience affect
1. Our cognition (thoughts, ideas, beliefs, etc.)
2. Our actions (which in turn determine the aspects of the environment we attend)
3. Both our actions and cognition
(a). Independent of each other
(b). Interdependently or cyclically
4. ...something else
What are the main differences between Skinner's Behaviorism and other biological approaches, like Ecological Psychology (J J Gibson) and Knowledge Biology (Maturna and Varela).
I am looking for any experience or paper in which a coach/teacher designs affordances into learning programmes, especially in motor learning and acquisition of movement skills, in nonlinear pedagogy and constraints-led approach.
I'm interested in the theory of ecological perception (Gibson) and looking for applications to biodiversity by their human users for subsistence (e.g. subsistence fisheries, communitary forestry, etc). Theory and, about all, methodology. Thanks.
I am looking for a good way to measure the behavioral regulations in exercise (intrinsic and extrinsic motivation) by using Ecological Momentary Assessment (EMA). How can I make a significant scale or how I can use EMA, in the best way? and what is the best tool/software for using EMA?
I am exploring the intersubjective experience of researchers focused on human-animal and animal-focused topics. Outside of Sanders, Churchill, and Dutton I haven't come across any in this new topic, therefore any additional citations would be appreciated.
