Self-regulation and Its Role in Socialization: Meditation Practice as a Means of Emotional and Behavioral Self-regulation
Doležalová, Petra ; Horáková Hoskovcová, Simona (advisor) ; Kalousová, Zuzana (referee)
This bachelor thesis investigates the possibilities for development of self-regulation by means of meditation practice. Its literary review part deals with self-regulation and self-control as variously defined mechanisms of one own's regulation of thoughts, emotions, and behavior and their role in one's capability to manage their actions and accept social norms throughout a life- long socialization process. It also briefly describes various forms, causes and consequences of failure in the socialization as well as the self-regulation domain. Further on, it discusses the mechanisms of meditation practice and its effects - particularly on the development of self- regulatory skills and concludes with a presentation of existing experience from this area of research in penitentiary practice. The empirical part proposes an experimental study of the effect of an intensive 10-day standardized meditation course of the vipassana technique as taught by S. N Goenka on the rate of impulsivity among the male prison population in the Czech Republic. Key words Self-regulation, self-control, impulsivity, meditation, vipassana, penitentiary practice
The Importance of Communication fot the Quality of a Relationship
Martinová, Petra ; Šulová, Lenka (advisor) ; Kalousová, Zuzana (referee)
This Bachelor thesis deals with the importance of communication for relationship quality. The thesis describes communication and its specifics in a relationship between partners while placing emphasis on communication behaviour which can facilitate or, by contrast, impede communication. In addition, it critically evaluates studies covering this topic. The suggestion for research is focused on the observation of couples in strong and healthy relationships. A strong and healthy relationship is the one in which both partners are satisfied. The description of communication behaviour typical of these couples could serve as an inspiration to couples in which communication does not work well, and could be used in relationship and marriage counselling. Further research in this area should be aimed at proving the causality of these phenomenons and so support a hypothesis saying that the improvement of communication leads to a relationship of higher quality. Keywords: interpersonal communication, a relationship between partners, relationship quality
