This paper explores the use of autobiographical and autoethnographic approaches in understanding and analysing individuals’ lived experiences within psychoanalytic or psychotherapeutic frameworks. Autobiographical and auto ethnographic methods involve the researcher or therapist engaging in self-reflection and self-analysis to gain insights into their own experiences, which can then inform their understanding of clients’ narratives and therapeutic processes. By drawing on personal stories, these approaches aim to bridge the gap between subjective experiences and theoretical frameworks, offering a unique lens through which to explore the complexities of human psychology and therapeutic relationship. The theoretical foundations and practical applications of autobiographical and autoethnographic approaches in psychoanalysis and psychotherapy is highlighted alongside the significance of personal narratives as a source of knowledge and insight, emphasising the importance of reflexivity and self-analysis in therapeutic process. Drawing on existing literature, the potential benefits and challenges associated with using autobiographical and autoethnographic methods including ethical considerations, countertransference and the balance between personal and professional boundaries is elucidated. Furthermore, case studies illustrating the ways in which autobiographical and autoethnographic approaches have been employed in psychoanalytic and psychotherapeutic settings are highlighted. These examples demonstrate how personal narratives can enhance clinicians’ understanding of experiences, facilitate empathy and rapport, and contribute to the overall therapeutic process. Potential limitations and areas for further exploration in utilising these approaches, such as potential biases and the need for ongoing self-reflection and supervision is explored. This paper seeks to contribute to the growing body of literature on narrative approaches within psychoanalysis and psychotherapy.

El presente trabajo de investigación bibliográfica examinó el incumplimiento de las normas de bioseguridad por parte del personal de enfermería en el Hospital Básico El Triunfo durante el primer semestre de 2021. Después de la revisión de 6 documentos, se determinó que el 83,33% de los estudios identificó insuficiencias en el seguimiento de estas regulaciones. En específico, un 33,33% de los casos estudiados destacaron la existencia de desafíos en la salud mental de los enfermeros, lo cual está relacionado con el estrés continuo y la presión agravada por la pandemia de COVID-19. Este efecto en la salud mental tiene el potencial de ejercer un impacto negativo en la calidad de la atención. En un 50% de los casos, se señaló un incumplimiento de las normas de bioseguridad en relación con los medicamentos, ya sea debido al uso inapropiado de los fármacos o a problemas en el proceso de dispensación. Estas deficiencias pueden influir en la eficacia de los tratamientos y aumentar la mortalidad, incluyendo el riesgo de enfermedades como la tuberculosis. Sin embargo, el 16,67% de los estudios mostraron una retroalimentación positiva por parte de los pacientes en el sector de atención obstétrica, lo que sugiere que al menos en esta área, se están cumpliendo las normas de bioseguridad y proporcionando atención de calidad. Estos hallazgos resaltan la urgencia de fortalecer la formación y supervisión del personal de enfermería en cuestiones de bioseguridad, así como de abordar la salud mental de los profesionales para mantener una atención de alta calidad. También es esencial asegurar el estricto cumplimiento de las normas de bioseguridad con relación a medicamentos para mejorar la efectividad del tratamiento y reducir el riesgo de propagación de enfermedades.

This paper seeks to analyze the impact of Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) clubs, on performance of secondary school students. The study focuses on Mwanza Secondary School. The study will look at the experiences, challenges and success stories of the school. The year 2018 saw the introduction of STI Clubs in most secondary schools of Malawi including Mwanza Secondary School. These clubs were spear headed by Dr. Chomora Mikeka who is currently the Director of the Department of Science, Technology and Innovation. The Department now works with the Department of Innovation and creativity in the office of the president and cabinet, which was established in November 2020 by His Excellency, Dr. Lazarous MCathy Chakwera, The President of the Republic of Malawi. Through these initiatives, Mwanza secondary school’s performance, especially in science subjects improved and more students are currently being selected to public universities. The club helps equip all science students with the necessary skills and knowledge to solve various problems in their community through innovation and creativity. These innovations are fostering the achievement of the pillars of Malawi 2063 and the Malawi Recovery Plan. Since 2018, the club has participated in four National School Sciences Fair hosted by Kamuzu Academy. Currently, on October 2023, Mwanza secondary school registered one of its innovations, “Antifungal lotion”, with the Innovation and Engineering Hub of the Malawi University of Science and Technology (MUST-MIIRI).

This research paper delves into the challenges facing the US media industry, focusing on issues of viewability, attribution, and current investment practices. It explores the saturation of advertising, the decline in ad effectiveness, and the rise of ad blockers. Additionally, it investigates the hesitancy of brand managers to shift strategies despite apparent shortcomings. The paper also examines insights from both incumbent and smaller brands, drawing lessons from their approaches to navigating the evolving media landscape. The emergence of the Omni Channel age further complicates the scenario, emphasizing the need for a strategic reevaluation of media practices. The research proposes a new strategy to optimize media spending, considering changing consumer behavior and the shift towards an Omni Channel environment.

This study aims to assess how Technological Institute of the Philippines (TIP) utilizes principles of the knowledge economy in its research activities. A mixed methods approach is employed combining quantitative and qualitative analyses of research publications from TIP over the past 5 years. The publications will be collected from databases and repositories then preprocessed through text cleaning. Latent Dirichlet Allocation (LDA), a topic modeling technique, will be applied to identify prevalent themes within the publications. Both the frequency and content of topics related to knowledge economy concepts like innovation, technology transfer, and industry collaboration will be examined. In addition to quantitative metrics from LDA modeling, a qualitative analysis of publications within knowledge economy topics will provide context. The findings will offer strategic recommendations to better align TIP's research agenda with knowledge economy goals of fostering innovation, knowledge sharing, and technological progress. Proper ethical guidelines will be followed to ensure data privacy and anonymity. The study methodology integrates computational and manual approaches to comprehensively evaluate TIP's utilization of the knowledge economy in research.

Rainfall, maximum air temperature and minimum air temperature data for the five critically ground water depleted districts of central Punjab viz., Barnala, Moga, Sangrur, Patiala and Ludhiana for the baseline period from 1983-2005 and the near future, 2030 under medium emission scenario RCP 4.5 was obtained from six climate model ensembles based on IITM- RegCM4 model. The potential evapotranspiration (PET) and actual evapotranspiration (AET) data were estimated using bias corrected climate data and validated SWAT model for the study districts. Modified Mann-Kendall trend test stastic (Mmk-Z) indicated a significant decrease in rainfall at p<0.05 during 2030 for all the study districts except Ludhiana and Patiala. Sens’s slope estimator indicated rate of decrease of rainfall by 3.4 mm/year, 3.3 mm/year, 2 mm/year, 1.9 mm/year and 1.2 mm/year for Moga, Patiala, Barnala, Sangrur and Ludhiana district, respectively and an increase in minimum air temperature by 0.02oC/year for the whole study region during 2030. The estimated PET vales showed an increase by 13.6 %, 11.7 %, 11.6 %, 10.6 % and 10.1 % for Ludhiana, Sangrur, Moga, Barnala and Patiala districts respectively, whereas, the estimated AET values showed a decrease by 33.5 %, 31.7%, 30.7 %, 28.6 % and 27.1 % for Patiala, Sangrur, Ludhiana, Barnala and Moga districts, respectively during 2030 over the base period. An increased irrigation water demand by 43%, 36%, 31%, 21% and 21% for Ludhiana, Patiala, Sangrur, Barnala and Moga districts, respectively during 2030 over the baseline period was observed indicating more dependency on ground water for meeting crop irrigation demand in the study districts.

The Royal Canadian Army Cadet League is a national organization promoting community youth leadership skill development through an afterschool program format called "corps" across communities in Canada. Each corps is attached to a Canadian Forces Reserve Regiment. However, numerous corps are experiencing a decline in retaining their youth members. This decline in retention jeopardizes each corps’ funding from the Department of Defense, possibly closing the community corps. Examining retention through the lens of critical pragmatism will identify areas for improvement. A paradigm shift from primarily transactional-based leadership to transformational and servant leadership is required to improve the organization, ensure sustainability in the corps, and support the Canadian Armed Forces. Using mixed and current best practices for engaging youth and inserting a more applicable framework for teaching and training with a transformative change in mindset for the corps leadership, will improve the organization and ensure sustainability with a model of inclusivity. A leadership framework supported by recognized change path models with reinforcement from continual monitoring and evaluation will ensure a continued corps presence in the community.
