Abstract

Divorce and the collapse of marital institutions are global issues which draws attention from many parties. As a result of the existence of quality family being a catalyst in the development of society, emphasis should be made to aspects of coping among married couples, especially during handling arising stress. Results show that research relating to dyadic coping within marriage has gradually gained attention from researchers. Many previous research indicate that personality has been a contributing factor in determining the actions taken by an individual. However, previous research has focused more on the five big traits compared to other types of personality such as perfectionism. Previous research has proved the existence of relationship between perfectionism personality with other aspects of life especially mental health and marital satisfaction. On the other hand, how much perfectionism personality influence dyadic coping within marriage still remains a question. Hence, this conceptual paper will discuss on the potential of perfectionism personality influence dyadic coping based on previous research. Eventually, implication and the importance of this study will also be discussed in the effort to encourage married couples to apply effective coping while retaining a harmonious marriage.

Abstract

This research examined the life experiences of Filipinos deported from Malaysia. Anchored on the symbolic interaction theory, the study sought to investigate how the interpretation of these experiences defined and shaped their personhood. It documented the life experiences of Filipino deportees before and after deportation from Malaysia to determine the consequences of such forcible repatriation on their health, socio-economic, cultural and psychosocial dimensions of life. The study looked into coping strategies with life changes focusing on deportation as a main turning point and identified this event’s differential treatment considering the variables of age and sex group. The research utilized a exploratory design and presented extensive case studies of 24 Filipino deportees, eight of which are included in this paper synthesized from in-depth interviews of deportees and key informants. Other technique used were non-participant observation and data gathering from records of government offices assisting the repatriates including the Department of Social Welfare and Development Region 9 and the Zamboanga City Philippines Social Welfare and Development Office. The study showed varying consequences of deportation with respect to the deportees’ health, socio-economic, cultural, and psychosocial condition. While all the respondents admitted having been adversely affected by their deportation there is evidence of remarkable resiliency and optimism as gleaned from their narrations. Deportees have varied interpretations of deportation in their lives. For some respondents, the experience meant re-connection and re-union with the family in the place of origin. For others, the experience meant free travel to their homeland. A number of respondents reported deportation was an opportunity to be free from detention, an experience which they described as "hell". Most of the deportees were stigmatized with the new identity, that of a Halau. Deportation was a shameful event to the family and friends but it has to be accepted because it happened and they made it happened. The respondents interpreted experience as evidence they were “meant to be at the lower rung of the ladder of life due to many reasons. Many reported the deportation experience meant they lost loved ones and felt diminished in individual worth and dignity. The recommendations that the study can make have been elucidated in the findings of the study which can be realize through policy formulation, advocacy, education/information, social networking and social services.

Abstract

This is a conceptual paper that investigates how the health related quality of life (HRQOL) of children with autism can be improved. The paper involves a literature review of background information regarding autism, studies documenting the HRQOL of children with autism and factors affecting the HRQOL of children with autism. The aim of this study is to propose an intervention procedure that will help to improve the HRQOL of children with autism. The intervention was developed based on autism clinical practice guidelines and best practice recommendations. Literature shows that HRQOL among children with autism is lower than the general population. Based on the impairment among children with autism, the factors that affect the HRQOL and best practice guidelines for autism intervention, this paper concludes that an ideal intervention program to improve the HRQOL of children with autism would be a parent training program or parent mediated intervention (PMI) that includes strategies to manage challenging behavior, adaptive skills, and social communication skills.
