Agency and communion as fundamental dimensions of social adaptation and emotional adjustment

Fournier, Marc Alan January 2002 (has links)
It has been argued that agency and communion define the fundamental dimensions of human existence. Agency represents strivings for expansion and elevation that surface as efforts to pursue social dominance. Communion represents strivings for contact and congregation that surface as efforts to preserve social bonds. From an evolutionary perspective, agency and communion define the problems of group living to which our ancestors were historically required to adapt. From a dyadic-interactional perspective, agency and communion organize the domain of behavior that individuals in contemporary societies are presently able to demonstrate. The purpose of this research was to explore the agentic and communal dimensions underlying social adaptation and emotional adjustment; this objective was pursued through the use of event-contingent recording procedures that require respondents to report upon their behavior in significant social interactions over extended time intervals. I first propose that emotional adjustment is optimized through mitigation processes that balance the expression of agency and communion in everyday behavior. Findings indicated that a balance within agency and within communion---achieved through moderate levels of agentic and communal expression---predicted optimal emotional adjustment. I then propose that the dark aspects of agency and communion---the human propensities to quarrel and submit---are equally relevant to social adaptation. In this regard, I argue that these propensities represent social rank strategies through which individuals grapple with and defend themselves against feelings of threat and inferiority. Consistent with an evolutionary perspective upon social competition, individuals tended to quarrel when threatened by subordinates and to submit when threatened by superiors. Consistent with an evolutionary perspective upon defeat and depression, individuals who typically felt more inferior tended to quarrel more frequently with subordina

The effect of segmental manipulation of the cervical spine on grip strength in patients with mechanical cervical spine dysfunction

Naidoo, Trevor Pragasen January 2002 (has links)
Thesis (M.Tech.: Chiropractic)- Dept. of Chiropractic, Durban Institute of Technology, 2002. x, 55 leaves / Chiropractic researchers have hypothesized as to how the removal of a cervical dysfunction may affect the nervous system negatively. However, little focus has been placed on possible optimizing effects, such as grip strength. This study attempted to establish that relationship. Therefore, the specific aim of this study was to determine the relative effectiveness of segmental manipulation of the cervical spine on grip strength in patients with mechanical cervical spine dysfunction.
