Questions related to Young People
Currently it is very common to see young people with social networks like Tik Tok, Instagram... but how does it really influence them? It is true that there are many educational, playful and motivating profiles for study, but... are social networks used correctly? Do they positively or negatively influence this group?
A Leaked audio from Brisbane’s watch house exposed the fact that police allowed sexist and racist attitudes to flourish inside the dept. This leak outraged Australia. Australia depends on importing cheap young labor with promise for a better life while brunt of the taxes fall on these migrants as well as young Australians towards benefitting the aged for their cavorting health care bills. While many young Australians seek to get into the police force, they are mostly ignored or do not pass the interview stages. Many feel its due to racism's. Now Australia's decided to import police officers (again denying their own young people), and where will these officers be recruited from? England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, New Zealand.
¿Conoces que está pasando en el mundo, más pernicioso en los jóvenes, con el consumo de cannabis, posterior a la decision de la ONU a propuesta de la OMS de regularizar la utilización del cannabis con fines de investigación cientifica a finales de 2020? Es importante escuchar los criterios, de cualquier índole, de todos nuestros científicos.
Do you know what is happening in the world, more pernicious in young people, with the consumption of cannabis, after the decision of the UN at the proposal of the WHO to regularize the use of cannabis for scientific research purposes at the end of 2020? It is important to listen to the criteria, of any kind, of all our scientists.
Emerging adults are young people 18-24
Disconnected students are neither in school nor working
Eri Mountbatten-O'Malley's question: "why don’t we see young people as citizens in their own right?" seems to be on more and more minds. Academics, practitioners - sometimes they are both - are adding weight to the longstanding argument for young peoples' (including children's) enfranchisement.
I have not read a convincing argument about why young people should not be enfranchised. As John Wall recently wrote: the onus should not be on young peoples and their allies to demonstrate why they should gain the vote but rather that onus should fall on the shoulders of the people who do not want to enfranchise them.
Both so very much evidence and ethics side with young peoples enfranchisement. Is this "the" suffragist movement of our times?
Through observations and studies on specific cases of university students and through the behavior of most young people and even the elderly and the great addiction to mobile phones, which have turned into a safe haven for most people. The danger lies in addiction and wasting time and great effort in browsing websites and entertainment that consume time and effort, in addition to controlling behaviors and directing them in the wrong direction, especially for young people. Which poses a serious threat to their sound behaviors and even to their future. And the great social and economic damage resulting from this addiction. All of the above makes us confirm that mobile phones and laptop computers, instead of being useful tools and improving the scientific, social and economic level, have turned into harmful electronic drugs.
What are examples of housing policy programmes that have worked effectively and have significantly increased the availability of housing for citizens, including young people starting families?
In many countries, specific housing programmes have been designed and implemented or attempted to be implemented with varying results, which consisted of activating and subsidising, within the framework of government financial support programmes, investments in the construction of flats, housing estates, houses, etc. The aim of such programmes is primarily to reduce the scale of the housing gap in society by increasing the number of flats and residential houses in the country, increasing to a large extent the availability of housing for citizens, including young people starting families. Besides, in connection with the fact that the construction sector is one of the key cyclical sectors in the economy, so among the key objectives of introducing such programmes within the framework of the government's housing policy is also the activation of economic processes through the creation of an additional economic growth activator, which can also be an important anti-crisis factor in the economy during the forecasted and ongoing economic downturn caused, for example, by international factors, the global economic crisis affecting the open economy. Unfortunately, not all such housing policies have worked effectively. For example, in the country where I operate such a housing policy programme, whose official strategic goal was to counteract the high housing deficit in the country in the face of social needs, was to be the Housing Plus Programme, the implementation of which was started by the PIS government from 2016, i.e. immediately after winning the parliamentary elections. This programme, alongside the social programme Family 500 Plus, was one of the key election slogans before the parliamentary elections held in autumn 2015, which the organised PIS political group won and thanks to which the PIS government, which has been in power for almost 8 years, was formed. Unfortunately, despite the passage of two parliamentary terms and the governments in power, the housing programme announced in the 2015 election campaign has not been implemented on the announced scale. In view of the above, the social and housing current goals of the Housing Plus Programme have only been realised by a few per cent relative to the original plan, the strategic goal of significantly reducing the housing deficit gap has not been realised. In fact, only the political objective of this housing policy programme, i.e. winning the parliamentary elections in 2015 and the local elections held in the following years, has been fully realised.
In view of the above, I address the following question to the esteemed community of researchers and scientists:
What are some examples of housing policy programmes that have worked effectively and have significantly increased the availability of housing for citizens, including young people starting families?
And what is your opinion on this?
What is your opinion on this subject?
I invite you all to discuss,
Thank you very much,
The title of my study is 'The sociocultural factors that influence body image and self esteem of young people'. The sociocultural factors I am looking at are media, and friends and family. My aim is to see which of these factors has the greatest impact on body image and self esteem, and to see whether males or females are more influenced by these factors.
My DVs are body image and self-esteem, and my IVs are media, friends and family, and gender. Any help would be really appreciated !
The cities that might be influenced can be dispersed into :
1. Street Fashion
2. High End Brand Fashion
3. Street Surfer / Beach Fashion
4. Contemporary Fashion
5. Musical fashion
Let's talk about Instagram:
Young people needs "likes",
Young peope loses the privacy.
According to Amaro Cabello, M. (2022). El uso de Instagram como conflicto de identidad en los adolescentes y sus consecuencias en la ausencia de pensamiento crítico. Eirene Estudios De Paz Y Conflictos, 5(9). Recuperado a partir de https://www.estudiosdepazyconflictos.com/index.php/eirene/article/view/169 , I would like to reflect on the importance of Social Networks, especially Instagram, in the construction of identity in adolescents.
According to the INE, the goal that is proposed is that there is an improvement in education for all those young people who are being trained, since if we study we can aspire to a suitable job meeting adequate conditions.
The INE explains that there is a higher school dropout rate for men than for women and this data is reflected in the year 2021.
Little by little this is improving, since there are more people who are in formal-education.
I am beginning a new research about employability in young people, I would like to know, what are the factors that help the new graduates to find a better paid job in a faster way?
Any information about a title of the topic or a research problem to solve, will be much appreciated,
It can be a challenging issue that young people have minimal concentration on nature and biodiversity due to their regular and deeper engagement on social media. They are going to forget natural phenomena and their dynamic ecological system without which the co-existence of humans would be impossible. We get food, fodder, oxygen, and every raw material to run industries from nature which is our real feeder. It is urgent to think from now onwards to activate youth towards nature and its conservation addressing burning issues of climate change and global warming through discussion, education, and awareness campaigns to save our souls through the conservation of nature. Thus, a discussion on the strategic presumption needs to be forwarded through intellectuals.
I am doing research to find if the level of stress in students or young people associated with the consumption of greater amounts of UPF. Does anyone know of a good tool to measure stress on young people and students?
Africa has the youngest population and highest youth unemployment rates in the world. Every year, 11 million young people join the African labour market but the continent can only generate 3.7 million jobs.The agriculture sector has the potential to absorb the unemployed youth but generally farming is not attractive to the teeming youth especially the university graduates in terms of profitability compared to white-collar jobs.
How can we make agriculture attractive to increase youth participation?
Where should the focus be?
In Uganda, youth is a critical concern and a popular topic of debate. The Uganda National Bureau for Non-Governmental Organizations has 2154 recognized non-profit organizations (NGOs). As of July 4th, 2022, approximately 215 organizations registered out of 2154 deal with youth issues. Looking at the core youth space/center of talks, the youth continue to blame the government for their failures, and I would also want to point out that the youth have forgotten that they can also play a role in altering their life. What's going on over there?
This question is very important to develop a plan and strategy to confront the problem of unemployment that is increasing among young people in society In all countries of the world ?
I am looking for suggested reading on the "neuroscience of trust" if anyone is aware of such or related studies.
I am researching how practitioners in "helping professions" for young people who offend practitioners can develop "trusting" relationships with the young people they support - ages eight to twenty-five years - to allow for meaningful and transformational interactions for both.
I hypothesize that hermeneutical injustice negates meaningful engagements and understanding the formation of trust socially and neuroscientifically, might help illuminate my investigation.
I will be grateful if you could share with me the screening tool that you use in your diabetes clinic to screen for any mental health problems among children and young people live with T1DM.
Thanking you in advance
All the best
I`m going to start researching young people with different disabilities. Does anyone have the Quality of Care and Support (QOCS) available since I would need it for the research purposes? Would it be possible to share the instrument with me.
I highly appreciate your help in this matter.
We are researchers from Rajiv Gandhi National Institute of Youth Development (RGNIYD), Sriperumbudur, (Institution under the Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports, Government of India) inviting you to participate in a study on Positive Youth Development.
As part of the research, we are conducting focus group discussions with youth (15-25) who are in their high school/college/university level education and among middle-aged adults (40-65) who are dealing with young people in their professional positions such as school/college teacher/youth worker/skills trainer/juvenile social worker/counselor, etc., who lives in India.
If you are coming under the above criteria and interested in sharing your views on the developmental assets/features/ characteristics that are required by youth to become healthy, well-adapted, and successful adults. You may give your consent by filling out the form for further communication. Thanking you in advance. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd9eM4h-rsExK3fErcKu6G-IYefULB7tHSTIXNSJtn87xRqmQ/viewform?usp=sf_link
I have recently published papers related to this theme in collaboration with two recent Pakistani doctoral graduates - Yaar Muhammad and Rehana Kousar. I would be interested to read RG members reflections on these papers and to hear of any good recent references which relate to teaching and learning around cultural and ethnic diversity.
I am inviting researchers to review my book "Transforming Nations after the Covid-19 Pandemic: A Humanitarian and Planetary Systems Perspective." This is available through University libraries throughout the world and through Springer International.
This book reflects on the humanitarian and planetary challenges that national communities will face in the coming decades after the Covid-19 pandemic. This book underscores the need for decent, ethical, healthy, and just societies that will enable individuals reach their full potential in this Century. The book explores the future directions of 12 key world nations through lens of compelling factors that are shaping the contours of tomorrow’s planetary community. It speaks to those interested in understanding and preparing for the planetary challenges of the coming decades. It is also a clarion call to the new generation of young people to strive for hope and endless possibilities.

Thank you for your kind consideration.
Scientific capacity or scientific exploitation?
When a researcher (placed in "favorable conditions") supervises many young (gifted) researchers in the framework of a PhD or otherwise and thus obtains many publications as co-author, can we consider that this is a particular capacity to train young researchers or a scientific exploitation of young researchers (especially if all the work is done by these young people)?
Hi everyone! I am a PhD student at the University of Sussex and I am looking for parents/guardians/carers based in the UK to fill in an online survey about their child's participation on YouTube. If you have a few minutes to spare please fill in this short online questionnaire
I am also looking for young people (12-14 years old) to participate in the research.

In recent times, many of the dengue infected cases are found against younger age groups. According to the Epidemiological Update Report of PAHO and WHO (7 February 2020), the highest incidence rates in 2019 were among children under 15 years (546.3 cases per 100,000 population) . Another report claimed that at least 300 children aged 5-9 have died in the recent Dengue outbreak in the Philippines. The virus is disproportionately affecting children and young people with a staggering 73 percent of recorded cases under the age of 19 .

Is it for children and young people to limit, limit the use of smartphones?
Should I fully control the use of smartphones by children and adolescents?
If children or adolescents use smartphones for learning, as a tool to support education processes, communication with schoolchildren and friends, and if these devices use new online media from time to time, this may not be positively assessed. However, if divides or young people from smartphones use many hours a day, among other things, viewing advertisements on social media portals and worthless memes and films, then it can have a destructive effect on the intellectual and psychological development of children and adolescents. In this situation, the use of smartphones by children and teenagers should be limited and controlled by parents, guardians and teachers.

Thank you very much
If in the process of technological and technical progress new kinds of products and services are created that improve the lives of people, it can be assumed that at certain times people may seem to be happier, then people can feel happier.
But after some time, people get used to a certain level of life and look for further stimuli from the world of science, technology, technology, production of goods, provision of new services that will meet the growing human needs.
However, it seems to me that in such a situation one should consider and verify the essence of the concept of happiness.
What is the achievement of people's sense of happiness in the realities of the current technological revolution, known as Industry 4.0?
Is the definition of the concept of happiness not deformed in the realities of current reality dominated largely by technology in technologically developed countries?
Is it sure that technological progress gives people a sense of happiness?
Technical and technological progress itself provides new products, but it does not necessarily always make people feel happier and certainly not in the long term.
In my opinion, the main factors deciding about happiness are on completely different issues and concern the fundamental values of self-fulfillment in personal, family and professional life.
In this approach to the interpretation of the concept of achieving the state of happiness, self-fulfillment in various spheres of human functioning can be an important determinant of achieving happiness.
Do you agree with me on the above matter?
In the context of the above issues, the following question is valid:
Does technological progress make people feel happier?
I invite you to the discussion
Much has been written about children and young people who experience and exhibit complex and difficult behaviour. There appears less written and researched about children and young people and their capacity to keep well in the face of hostile and arid domestic and community environments.
What is out there that focuses on the well and "pro-social" children and young people?
Neuroscience suggests that when people are exposed to traumatic events their worldview changes. How then do we explain what happens to children and young people that appear to remain "unaltered' after what is generally perceived as traumatic exposure? Does their remaining "unaltered" suggest differences in their neuroscientific make-up?
I am designing a new project and want to use participatory methods with children. I want the children to consider the questions and ask them in focus groups with other children. I know of a number of research projects that have carried this out successfully with young people (11+) but I am wanting to carry this project out with children between the ages of 5-11 yrs. Can anyone recommend any research where this has been attempted and discussed?
Seizures are fascinating intellectually, but they can be devastating for the person suffering from them. We have all heard stories of young people who seemingly have no genetic or other past medical history and present to the Neurological ICU in status epilepticus -- an entity known as NORSE. All our algorithms fail and we are left scrambling for effective approaches without any evidence. Often, despite our best interventions, these young healthy patients have >35% mortality rate. And those that survive rarely make it past the SNF.
We have one such patient in our Neurological ICU currently. So I wanted to ask what you guys do when the standard treatments have failed? Per the American Epilepsy Society guidelines, we initially treated her status with Ativan, Midazolam, Keppra loads, Vimpat loads, Fosphenytoin loads, Versed drips, and finally Pentobarbital coma. Currently she is on Keppra, Vimpat, Fosphenytoin, Felbamate, Epidiolex, and Fycompa. Thankfully the Pentobarbital is now off, but she continues to require continuous Versed drip.
In your experience, have you found anything effective in these situations?
A “cleavage” is a deep and lasting division between groups that comprises: an economic, religious and social dimension and collective identity of this social group. In Belarus and in Lebanon, have the new cleavages (poorer part of society, unemployed, young people, students, women’s movements, global middle classes) that are fuelling anti-government protests strong basis for mass identification and organization of interests? These new cleavages are endowed with crucial resources?
In many countries, traditional cleavages still have the social and cultural resources to bring together in collective movements the social resentment of a large part of civil society and the resources of many institutions. In countries where the basis for the rise of new cleavages are weak and fluid, there is a high risk that existing religious and political cleavages gradually prevail. But will it still be like this?
I am a Medical student working on a research concerning mental health on young people. I am looking for a scale with good properties for symptoms of depression and anxiety.
Since the questionnaire includes many other dimension, short version are particularly welcome!
Thanks in advance!
"THIS IS AN ABSOLUTELY SCIENTIFIC QUESTION"
I personally have two strategies, I give lectures aimed at Children and Young people and I make these lectures available (presentations) for other people to use in other places in world, translating into their own languages, trying to use more images than text.
Tell us what your strategies are, share with RG so that we can have more researchers and that Childrens and Youth people can see that it is a "nice" option to be a researcher and contribute to the development of humanity!
Source links of my documents, there are 7 (seven) documents (Childrens and Young People) within section called Presentations. Hope they can be helpful.
I was planning to do an IPA on how a specific intervention (Befriending) is helping young adults. Due to lack of participants I decided to change my research to systematic review. Now my question is that I have a feeling that there won't be many researches on befriending on young adults. Can I do some kind of research where in I find how befriending is helping people across all age spans and then do a different review on what young people expects from the interventions and compare the two? If it seems right how will I go on about it?
Also if anyone has better idea on how I should redefine my research your ideas are welcomed.
Younger people have been largely spared during the pandemic, mainly because the coronavirus has a harder time binding to receptors in their cells compared to those of adults.
Now there’s growing concern about whether the B.1.1.7 variant first detected in the United Kingdom could be causing more infections in young people. Kindly. Comment on this topic.
In some countries, work in the scientific field is paid mediocre. Young people have little interest in the complex problems of science. The popularization of science is necessary. The pages of the RG publish questions and answers to these scientific questions.
Can the publication of answers to questions in the RG be considered a popularization of science?
In the context of COVID-19, in many universities, one of the strategies used not to lose the academic year is the realization of the courses by webinars. Some believe that the courses by webinars were long overdue in Africa to manage the large numbers of students in faculties.
So the question that arises is whether we should give priority to courses by webinars or not after this period of COVID-19. Can distance courses help to train young people well?
Isn't it better to always give priority to face-to-face lectures, to use open educational resources to facilitate learning and to use webinairs if necessary?
What do you think ?
The SNS and PNS indices in Kubios are calculated in relation to adult HRV standards. However, are they usable for young people (13-15 years old)? After transformations or as they are?
Thanks in advance
I am looking for updated research on relations between video game play/esports and young people with autism spectrum disorder. I am both interested in qualitative and quantitative studies. Most of the research seems to be focused on learning games, but I am more interested in the games that young people with ASD choose to play according to their own interests. Hope that anyone can help out!
Yes, this is a very important issue. The issue of communication with the use of new online media is very important in the context of an efficiently run education process.
We are currently communicating widely across various online media, including via email. Some of the email mailboxes we use have anti-spam restrictions, which makes communication difficult. The development of communication through various online media, also through social media portals is an important issue in education. New media should be effectively used in the education process, but not always their technical specification is fully suitable for the needs of communication development in the context of the ongoing education process. However, as far as possible, new online media should be used in education, because young people use them widely and can be an excellent additional tool in the field of teaching instruments, eg for the purpose of efficiently searching for the necessary, current information.
In view of the above, I would like to ask you: Should new internet media be used in educational processes?
Please, answer, comments. I invite you to the discussion.
We are starting the project CultSense - Sensitizing Young Travellers for Local Cultures (www.cultsense.com). The project seeks to find a new approach to increase understanding and valorization of local cultures by the people that visit these places. We are in first instance thinking of young people.
- What is for you the most important challenge in making this bridge of understanding between (young) tourists and the local cultures they visit?
- Any ideas of how to communicate ways to tackle this challenge?
Thank you for sharing your views and the challenges of the places you live and visit!
You can also follow our project here - http://www.researchgate.net/project/CultSense-Sensitizing-Young-Travellers-for-Local-Cultures
It's been a long time since I learned to do quantitative research and analyse statistics. I've now found myself doing a study where I have no idea how to process the data once it's collected.
I'm trying to ascertain whether there's a causal link between tolerance to ambiguity in risk and young people's involvement in crime.
I've sent out a questionnaire which has some questions about general background and involvement in crime, a copy of the Adolescent Risk Taking questionnaire and an behavioural-economic lottery task to ascertain tolerance to risk-ambiguity.
I've read up on loads of different ways to analyse data and all of them sound equally possible and problematic.
Together with another researcher, I have developed a new type of self esteem measure, to use in Ghana and potentially other countries. We wanted to create a measure that is less abstract, and more related to the daily lives of the respondents. Instead of using a typical scale, with statements and a Likert-scale as answer options, we use scenario based questions. We describe certain situations that are reflective of the lived realities of young people, and then let them select how they would most likely respond to that situation. Answer options describe different responses, which reflect different levels of self-esteem.
We now would like to determine the convergent validity of this measure, by letting respondents fill out our self-esteem measure, as well as 2 or 3 established self-esteem measures and determine how they are related to each other. However, I have never conducted such a study before, so I am looking for some guidance. Maybe some tips on how to go about it, literature that gives further guidance or anything else that could be of use.
Thank you in advance!!
Although education is more than simply getting the job, but major concerns of young students in the universities is how to land safely on the career surface. Unfortunately it is not their skill or degree which will decide the employment after university, rather market forces of demand and supply in the labor market which decide who will get the job.
For a young person, it is not an efficient decision to prepare for the specific job or career. It may be considered necessary step as a contingency plan, but prime goal is to be on the demand side of the labor market. Being on the demand side, means that person is joining the forces in the market who give jobs to others.
The entrepreneurial mindset is the key feature that can open the doors to join demand side of the labor market.
Discussion point is that what stops young people to develop the entrepreneurial mindset? Input is required 'for' or 'against' the argument built above.
I have been asked to write an editorial about young adults facing the pandemic and measures to be taken to mitigate social risks (in France). I am looking for some international examples.
Do you know if in your country some age specific measures have been enforced, or if young people have been included in some support policies?
Thank you very much and keep safe!
Corona spread in India is the highest at present and numbers are daily increasing. We find that about 30 percent people do not use masks and many are keeping mask below the mouth to escape from police so that they can pull it to cover mouth and nose when a traffic signal is nearby.
The corona has affected the economy of India worst than any other country in the world and GDP is highest in negative direction. it is affecting the poor very badly. Many shops and small entrepreneurs are forced to close their business.
With all the above conditions, Indian citizens in large number are not taking the condition seriously. This phenomenon is quite strange and worth for research to understand the intention and behavior of these people. is there any effect of culture on irresponsible behavior? Whether, the information given by WHO that death rate of young people due to COVID-19 is negligible, is the reason for negligence? Whether people want to show that they are more immunized? What is the role of social stigma of considering corona patients as persons who committed sins so they got corona, and role social stigma of boycott of family having corona patient forcing the people to hide the illness?
What kind of scientific research dominate in the field of Good governance in business?
Please, provide your suggestions for a question, problem or research thesis in the issues: Good governance in business.

Thank you very much
The COVID-19 Pandemic is repeating history as in 1918 and other catastrophes. Maybe this will be a wake-up call to governments to listen to their health departments, to prepare for the future. Obviously, no one had prepared properly, even the largest most wealthy governments. This was all totally predictable, as I have been describing repeatedly in my comments, based upon history with previous pandemics, and notably the 1918 flu pandemic. The scenario is following the same format as has been done many times, it has been totally predictable, as I have been documenting for the past 6 months, and is predictable for the future. Human society needs to prepared better for the next time we have a pandemic, because it will happen again. Also, I think we are lucky in a way this time, as the mortality rate is only about 5%, but think about the next time, perhaps it will hit young people harder, or think about what happens if Ebola virus becomes airborne at 95% mortality. Obviously, this time no one was prepared, but the species will survive until the next hit. Everyone needs to wake up, and get better prepared. Thank you and stay safe. Gary Ordog, MD July 15, 2020.
Corona pandemic is still roaring in the US when Europe is relatively more relaxed but careful in easing lockdown.
The United States has long prided itself as the world's shining beacon. But its current status is a much darker one: the globe's leader in coronavirus cases.
More than 125,000 people have died from Covid-19 in the US, and more than 2.5 million Americans have been infected.
American life has been irrevocably altered by the worst pandemic in a century. And as the country struggles to reopen, cases of Covid-19 have surged again -- this time in young people and in states that had previously avoided the brunt of the virus.

The average normal body temperature is generally accepted as 98.6°F (37°C). From various scientific studies, we now know that body temperature fluctuates as much as 0.5 F (0.2 C) throughout the day; that young people generally stay warmer than elderly people; and that women tend to maintain a higher temperature than men, depending on where they are in their menstrual cycles.
As per some of the recent studies, The ideal body temperature may no longer be 98.6 F. another factor is the accuracy of the device used; which may effected due to various things like ambient temperature, source emissivity, reflections, etc.
So then what is the meaning of temperature screening alone at most of the entry and exit points?
In recent days, among the victims of COVID-19, there are many young people; is there clinical evidence that can explain the reasons?
Can it be linked to the poor observation of the rules on social distancing, failure to adopt protective and sanitizing measures, and high promiscuity behaviors too?
I want to do some research about the psychological effects of COVID-19 on adolescents and young people.
To do this, I need a standard questionnaire.
There is an increasing use of energy drinks by young people that could be harmful for their health!
Dear fellow researchers ;
A friend of mine is currently investigating how he can bring local youths with various psycho-social issues together by music. More specifically : he's aiming to see if local houses for youth can be used to encourage them to make hip hop, rap or other music.
This to encourage them to get off the streets, stay away from drugs, bad peers etc.
I'm looking for your very valued opinions on this topics and I am definitely interested in any research concerning this topic.
Our investigation group is currently working on a research about pornography consumption in adolescents and young people. We'd like to read your comments and any information you consider interesting regarding this topic. All contributions will be welcome.
In our project on Processes of emancipation of young people under the care of the public administration, we are working on gender marking. We have produced two works (unaccompanied minors and substitute parenthood). We are currently preparing interviews for care leavers young women. We have started to test the ABAS-II tool (adaptive behavior assessment) with vulnerable population. We would like to know the trajectory review protocols that you consider more recommendable (psychometric properties, validity, etc.) or trajectory analysis scripts for in-depth interviews.
Hi, I'm planning to start my PhD in Behavioural Economics. Research areas includes young consumers and e-commerce. But it seems I'm hitting the end of the road. How could I expand the topics? and what can I do so I could start my PhD soon? Thanks
Much has been discussed about the policy that best contributes to the incorporation into the labor market of young workers. In this discussion, I liked to focus the question on three points of view, higher education, vocational or professional training or the promotion by the governments of entrepreneurship and self-employment of young people. Regarding university education, during the last half century it has been seen as a tool for social mobility. However, many countries with high rates of university graduates have high levels of youth unemployment and important percentages of graduates work below their qualifications, while inequalities in the labor market grow. I thank you in advance for your opinions.
Knowledge is very important in academic life and academic life has its own conditions. However, experience is an accumulation gained over many years and should be shared with young people. In the light of your years of experience, what do you recommend to young academics and to those who want to be an academician?
The people behind food production are becoming less. The farmers of the world are aged and many young people are not interested in farming .
Greta Thunberg began one year ealier in August 2018 to demonstrate for more actions in improving our climate. Since this kids all over the world demonstrate on Fridays for Future. Some groups of them began to act. Most of them are still demonstrating. This is great and has moved a lot up to now. But we think young people could go on acting to solve real environmental problems together with society and economy. They should rise the pressur by showing what has to be done actively.
Therefore we are asking for problems they really can work on successfully and f.e. improve CO2 emissions or reduce drinking water consumption or help to reduce the rabbish in companies or help to save food for poor persons aso....I am looking forward to reading your suggestions.
What is the best method(s) to encourage and motivate young adults to take their academic studies seriously? Many young people (age 18 to 25) don't seem to take their college courses serious. How can instructors/professors motivate them to study hard and be more serious about their college courses?
In my research I have two groups of participants: addicts and healthy young people (controls).
I seek to identify latent classes based on genotype polymorphism (categorical), epigenetic changes (continuous) and experience of childhood trauma (continuous) and parental styles (continuous). The assumption would be that different subpopulations have different disease risks that we can measure through different proportions among cases and controls.
Can I do a LCA on a single combined sample of addicts and controls to identify specific subpopulations (latent classes) and latter check for proportions of latent classes among cases and controls?
If so should I include only geno,epi,trauma,parent indicators without group membership variable? Or do I include group variable as indicator also?
In not, should I alternatively run two different LCA each on its own population?
Any other suggestions?
Does anyone know of quantitative research which has reported on the degree to which children and young people (e.g., anyone under 20yrs) with neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs) are bullied because they have their specific NDD? There is plenty showing that these young people experience more bullying behaviours from their peers, but there seems to be much less (virtually nothing) on whether they are being picked on specifically because they have an NDD. Thanks.
