SPSS is a major software of data analysis in social research. For researchers involved in collecting, processing, and modeling data from social research, this is a course that will teach them how to use SPSS from inputting and analyzing data, as well as interpreting and presenting results. The course is not only to teach the main technologies of using this software, but also to make sense of each specific procedure of analysis. Both the descriptive and inferential statistical methods are covered that can be used to analyze data relevant to the social research.
Death and dying have often been treated as experiences distant from childhood, both in policy and practice. Often, in conversations and policy documents, death appears to be a subject pertinent to older age or chronic illness, specifically cancer. However, this Special Issue contributes to a different discourse, which suggests that children may also be confronted with death, not simply as grievers but also dying themselves.
The World Health Organization considers questions like the global increase in dementia as issues that can be tackled, in part, through design. The National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research underlines how environments can actively exclude whole sections of society by design itself. The World Institute of Psychology identifies multiple links between mood, behavior and the objects we interact with daily.
Adequate analysis on social issues and problems requires careful choice and rigorous application ofresearch methods. This course aims to introduce participants to the methodological foundation and practical skills of data collection, analysis, and interpretation for major social research methods. The 2-day training will focus on survey methods but also touch on other methods such as fieldwork research, comparative historical research, and experimental research. The course will extensively adopt research examples for illustration, and will closely combine lectures and hands-on exercises.
