This study describes the functionality, cognitive, and neuropsychological performance of a child with Hemiplegic Cerebral Palsy, and the role of the “educational diet” in his performance. Executive dysfunction is expected in Hemiplegic children, and even those with normal cognitive functioning are predisposed to show specific learning difficulties. This particular case displays a profile disparate from what is expected. Results confirmed the high functionality of the child, FA, in all domains. Moreover, a parent interview verified that the educational diet followed may be an important aspect that is contributing to the child’s divergent results. Full article

The present study assessed the psychometric properties of the Bulgarian version of the Centre for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-DC), which is a 20-item self-report scale designed to measure depressive symptoms in children and adolescents. A total of 700 (323 female, 377 male) adolescents, aged 13-17 years, participated in this study. In addition to the CES-DC, the adolescents also completed the Strength and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) and the Spence Child Anxiety Scale (SCAS). The results of the confirmatory factor analysis yielded fit index values demonstrating viability of the four-dimensional solution as in the original. The CES-DC significantly correlated with SDQ total scores and its subscales, indicating that a high level of depressive symptoms was associated with high level of emotional and behavioral problems. Overall, the results provided evidence for the factor validity and reliability of Bulgarian version of the CES-DC when used among adolescents in Bulgaria. Full article

Frequently, students are immersed in situations, activities and academic events that generate stress and anxiety. The aim of this study was to analyze the level of burnout and engagement in health science students, as well as the health perceived in them. Also, given the importance of Emotional Intelligence in the prevention of the development of burnout, the second objective of this study was to determine the existence of differences in terms of the degree, with respect to the factors of Emotional Intelligence (interpersonal, intrapersonal, stress management, adaptability and mood). The sample consisted of 63 students who were studying higher degrees in health sciences, who were administered an ad hoc questionnaire, the student version of the Maslach Burnout Inventory and the Utretch Work Engagement Scale Student. According to the results, there are no statistically significant differences in Burnout and Engagement between university students of nursing and young people who take professional training as an Auxiliary Nursing Care Technician. Likewise, it was found that young people who feel they perform their tasks properly and are competent in their studies have a higher self-efficacy and a greater dedication to them. At the same time, the dedication to the studies showed to be related to the perceived health. Finally, the existence of significant differences between nursing students and ANCT in the intrapersonal factor was found. So it was the ANCT students who showed the highest intrapersonal emotional intelligence. Full article

Homework is one of the most controversial educational activities nowadays. Although, there is scientific evidence of their potential on the academic performance and learning of students, it is still necessary to study some variables, which are part of the process of carrying out homework, with more precision. Most of the relationships between motivational variables involved in learning and performance have been studied taking into account the tasks carried out by the student within the walls of the school. However, there is a certain lack of knowledge of the relationships that occur between these variables in the process of completing homework; Homework, by definition, are prescribed by the teacher to be carried out after school. For this reason, the main goal of the present paper is to analyze the predictive capacity of each variable related to motivation and homework involvement on the amount of them which are done by students. Participants were 899 students from Spanish compulsory secondary education. Results from the regression analysis indicate that the more time students spend on homework, the more intrinsically motivated they are, the more effective time management is, the better motivation management is and the less anxiety they show, then the more amount of homework they complete.

There is a growing public alarm about verbal violence by adolescents in educative center. The object of this study is to know the perception of students of compulsory secondary education (CSE) about the verbal violence exerted on classmates and teachers, identifying personal and school factors that intervene. It was used a quantitative methodology with the application of the questionnaire of perceived school violence (CUVE-R-ESO) that 4467 students (M=13.81; DT=1.38). The results show increased presence of verbal violence among companions (bad-mouthing each other, spread negative rumors about colleagues, make nicknames or insulting) to verbal violence toward teachers (disrespect, insults). The inferential analysis shows a prevalence in the verbal violence of women of older age, enrolled in upper courses of CSE and with repeated course. In addition, verbal violence among companions is higher in concerted rural centers, while verbal violence against teachers is higher in urban centers of public character; there are no statistically significant differences in the family structure. In conclusion, the verbal violence in educative centers is a prevalent behavior that is not perceived as an alarming behavior on the part of the pupil. Full article
