Suizid im Alter in Österreich (German Edition) - download pdf or read online

By Daniel Gutschi

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Soziologie - regulate, notice: 1, Donau-Universität Krems - Universität für Weiterbildung, Veranstaltung: Arbeitsfeld: Ältere, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Die vorliegende Arbeit beschäftigt sich mit dem Thema Suizid im speziellen Kontext des
biologischen Alters.

Sich mit dem Tod und insbesondere mit dem Suizid auf eine erklärende, objektive und gar
wissenschaftliche paintings und Weise auseinanderzusetzen erschien mir vorerst ungewohnt. Der Tod
wird in unserem Kulturkreis wahrscheinlich primär traurig, schmerzvoll und leidend
wahrgenommen, vielleicht auch gerade deswegen weil guy sich in seinem Leben eventuell nicht
bewusst mit der Thematik auseinandersetzt. Konfrontiert mit dem Tod wird guy vermutlich am
ehesten wenn ein Mensch aus dem eigenen Umfeld stirbt, obwohl uns täglich Nachrichten von
tödlichen Unfällen, Massakern oder Ähnlichem erreichen - vielleicht macht guy sich zu diesen
Zeitpunkten Gedanken über die eigene Sterblichkeit oder guy schiebt es weg - weil es ja „Andere“
betrifft. Je älter guy wird, umso wahrscheinlicher wird es zu sterben und vermutlich gewinnt der
Gedanke über sein eigenes Ableben mehr an Präsenz, oder guy „entschließt“ sich vielleicht sogar
es selbst zu bestimmen - sich zu suizidieren. Wobei die Frage, ob guy sich objektiv für eine
Suizidierung entscheiden kann, unter anderem im Fokus dieser Arbeit stehen wird.
Nun stellt sich die Frage warum Menschen im Allgemeinen und speziell im adjust sich dazu
entschließen sich zu suizidieren und ob guy in diesem Kontext von der eigenen, selbstbestimmten
und ungezwungenen Meinung sprechen kann.

Get Ältere im Arbeitsleben. Eine Chancensuche: Von PDF

By Wolfgang Kollenz

Fachbuch aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich Soziologie - adjust, , Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Durch einen starken Rückgang des wirtschaftlichen Wachstums und das drückende challenge der Jugendarbeitslosigkeit ist in Europa die scenario älterer Menschen auf dem Arbeitsmarkt – so scheint es – zumindest bisher ein wenig ins Hintertreffen geraten; von Vielen wird sie undifferenziert als chancenlos abgetan.
Die Medien greifen dieses alarmierende Thema zwar vermehrt auf, die Politik hat bisher aber keine nachhaltigen Konzepte zur Verbesserung deren Erwerbssituation entwickelt.

Aber dürfen berufstätige ältere Menschen nur Kündigungsangst und solche, die ihres Jobs bereits verlustig sind, tatsächlich keine Hoffnung auf Wiederbeschäftigung haben?

Untersuchungsgegenstand dieser Arbeit sind berufliche Möglichkeiten für Menschen jenseits des Haupterwerbsalters als Querschnittsmaterie aus psychologischen, medizinischen und (personal)wirtschaftlichen, aber auch arbeitsmarkt- und gesellschaftspolitischen Parametern mit primär individuellem Fokus. Basierend auf einem umfassenden Literaturstudium, Interviewauswertungen mit österreichischen Experten und ausgewählten „Best Practice“-Beispielen sollen die state of affairs älterer Menschen in ausreichendem Gesundheitszustand (dh. ohne besonders schwere Behinderungen) umfassend beleuchtet und Wege aufgezeigt werden, am Berufsleben weiter teilhaben können.

Resilienz bis ins hohe Alter – was wir von Johann Sebastian by Andreas Kruse PDF

By Andreas Kruse

Die Biografie Johann Sebastian Bachs wird unter dem Gesichtspunkt der Resilienz betrachtet: Wie ist es dem großen Komponisten gelungen, trotz zahlreicher Verluste, Rückschläge und Grenzsituationen sein außerordentliches schöpferisches Potenzial zu entfalten? Inwieweit sind Bezüge zwischen der Entwicklung in verschiedenen Lebensabschnitten und einzelnen Werken erkennbar? Lässt sich das Leben Bachs selbst als „Werk“ interpretieren? Nach einem Überblick über psychologische Resilienzforschung werden der frühe Verlust seiner Eltern, der Tod seiner ersten Frau und die von gesundheitlichen Einschränkungen und dem Verlust der Sehfähigkeit geprägte letzte Lebensphase Johann Sebastian Bachs untersucht. Dabei wird deutlich, dass es ihm bis ans Ende seines Lebens gelungen ist, sein schöpferisches Potenzial in seinem Werk wie auch in seiner Lebensführung zu verwirklichen, wobei seiner religiösen Bindung besondere Bedeutung zukommt.
