Adaptation of seniors as a assumption for successful aging
Doskočilová, Aneta ; Štětovská, Iva (advisor) ; Kebza, Vladimír (referee)
Successful aging is increasingly topical issue given the rapidly aging population and it is therefore crucial to deal with the way the old people adapt to the coming age, and whether there is some way we can be prepared for it. Model coping with life's problems - selection, optimization and compensation is a lifelong adaptation strategy, which currently in old age leads to successful aging. Besides adaptation are important attitudes towards aging and old age, that have an impact on senior's self-esteem. The main goal of this thesis was to analyze attitudes towards age and the use of model coping with life problems in a sample of younger and older Czech seniors using questionnaires SOC and AAQ. The research had a qualitative aspect, which focused on mapping the topic of retirement planning and strategies for successful aging. It turned out that the younger and older seniors differ from each other only in the use of the strategy chosen selection, in other strategies there was no difference between age groups. In the area of attitudes to each other, age groups also did not differ. The results also show that between using SOC strategies and their own attitude to old age, there is no relationship. Seniors recommend to young people and to their peers to think of their health, maintain good relationships...
Folkstories of school-age children
Doskočilová, Aneta ; Klusák, Miroslav (advisor) ; Viktorová, Ida (referee)
The main purpose of this bachelor thesis is to carry out heuristically conceived and adequately reduced replication of B. Sutton-Smith research. B. Sutton-Smith focused on children narration development and during his long term research he collected hundreds of stories from children aged 2 - 10. Based on this stories' analysis he created a theory which he later published together with selected stories in his monograph called The folkstories of children. In accordance with B. Sutton-Smith method I chose school enviroment for my data collection. Nevertheles I focused on children aged 8 - 15 and applied certain Sutton-Smith analysis techniques on collected stories. I have particulary observed the conflict resolution level, nature of the conflict and the way the conflict is solved. Subsenquently I have compared my findings with Sutton-Smith conclusions. In stories - unlike Sutton-Smith - I have not found significant age gradient on the level of conflict solution. Nevertheless I have detected a difference in usage of these levels amongst girls and boys. It is important to bear in mind I worked with incomparably smaller sample than Sutton-Smith did and my age group was different too. All these aspects might have led to these dissimilar results
