ItemAnorexia nervosa - fenomen ponowoczesnej kultury i choroba systemu rodzinnego(Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM, 2005) Frąckowiak, MonikaThe aim of this article is to present anorexia nervosa as a complex phenomenon which ought to be analyzed in macro-, mezzo- and microstructural context. Anorexia is defined in terms of “self destructive adaptation strategy” which is considered to be a reaction to specific configuration of cultural patterns and family system. The most significant factors affecting the process of forming the identity based on being an anorectic are: perfectionism and contemporary standards of beauty - as far as culture is concerned as well as dysfunctions of communication structure and lack of flexibility in role patterns - as far as family is concerned. To ilústrate the mentioned process on mezosocial level there have been presented results of content analysis of websites dealing with anorexia. As a conclusion, the author sketches the main assumptions of individual and family system psychotherapy of anorectics. ItemPożądany i unikany absenteizm członków rodziny w oczekiwaniach osób bezdomnych(Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM, 2005) Oliwa-Ciesielska, MonikaThe article discusses social exclusion and social inclusion of marginal groups such as homeless people. It examines poverty as such, and why poverty is passed on from one generation to another. Furthermore, the article explains the lifestyle of the homeless, discusses homelessness as a symptom of social adaptation, and presents a view of homelessness as a dramatic way of life for many people, showing kinds of adaptation that can take place in the lives of homeless people. The article also describes the results of living in poverty, without home, without relatives, outside of society in the underclass. The term “culture of poverty” is touched upon in the description. The article presents people who have a distinct way of life. In the view of the article, poverty and homelessness depend on the conditions in the family. Most of the people described in the article have more or less the same social status as their parents have had. Such a situation is possible because there might have never been a tradition of higher education and honest work in the family. The article explains why the crisis of homelessness is not only about lack of services, housing, and jobs, but also a result of mental problems. It explains the crisis of homelessness and reveals the daily struggle of street people to organize their lives and value system without families. ItemRodzina wobec poszkodowanego w wypadku jej członka(Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM, 2005) Florek, MagdalenaAn accident is an event which primarily causes many negative effects in its direct victim, but which also has a destructive influence on the way the families of the victims function. The factors that cause the negative effects stem from the limited performance of social roles and family roles, as well as from material losses, and stress. It is uplifting that for the majority of the injured, the family have showed up to be a support group, explicitly performing their caretaking role. ItemOd wielodzietności do bezdzietności? Przemiany w poglądach na posiadanie dzieci i ich uwarunkowania(Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM, 2005) Jaguś, IngaThe article shows that the realm of procreation is conditioned by a number of factors. Some of those affected the reproduction in the past centuries, others have their share nowadays. To find satisfaction in having delivered and brought up a child is no longer the highest-ranked value. As the results of the research show, it is more and more often the case that the decision to have children is being delayed or a choice is consciously made not to perform the role of a mother. ItemZagrożenia przebiegu procesu wychowania we współczesnej rodzinie polskiej -jakościowa analiza opinii(Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM, 2005) Kowalczyk-Szymańska, MirosławaThe article presents the outcome of a poll carried out among 400 families in the city of Bełchatów. Basing on the results, it may be concluded that in the families investigated there are many factors threatening the process o f upbringing. The reasons for this are such features characteristic of social processes as the orientation towards possessions (the “to have” modus), the consumptionist lifestyle, the lack of time, combined with inertia, alienation, negation, authoritarianism, and violence. These cause many negative phenomena in the family which have detrimental influence on the process of upbringing ItemWielkość i struktura rodziny a przejście demograficzne(Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM, 2005) Szukalski, PiotrThe basic indicators of the changes labelled as the demographic transition are: 1) the decrease in the number o f members of the family and relatives of the same generation, as a result of changes in fertility, and 2) the simultaneous increase in the time-span of the members' co-existence, thanks to the substantial drop in the death-rate. As result of the demographic transition, the size and the demographic structure of the family net is subject to change. ItemRelacje zachodzące pomiędzy osobami samodzielnymi życiowo a ich rodzinami pochodzenia(Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM, 2005) Żurek, AldonaThe article shows that the highest-ranked value in the life of self-reliant people is the feeling of freedom. The decision to leave the family home was motivated by the urge to expand one’s personal freedom, and to lead a life that would be independent of one’s parents. The emotional ties that link the self-reliant people with their parents are not as strong as those that link them their friends. The influence that the families of orientation have upon lives of the ‘singled-out’ people is subject to deterioration as time passes. The self-reliance evolves from a transitional period into a lifestyle. ItemSytuacja i niektóre tendencje w rozwoju współczesnej rodziny w Rosji i Sankt-Petersburgu(Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM, 2005) Biezrukowa, Olga N.; Samojłowa, Walentina A.The article presents many detrimental phenomena that presently taking place in the life of the marriage and the family. They are reflections of the harsh situation that has followed the changes in Russia, and which is complicated and painful for Russians. Among the negative and destabilising factors one may list the dropping number of new marriages, the rising number of divorces and incomplete families, the drop of the birth-rate, the rise in the number of abortions, the surge in the number of children bom outside marriages, and the rise of social orphanhood. The escalation of threats (?) to the families is beyond their adaptive capacity, as well as the capacity of social services. ItemPatologia seksualna w systemie rodzinnym(Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM, 2005) Beisert, MariaThe article proposes an analysis of the family as a system which, when faced with the threatt of a breakup, is capable of resorting to pathological mechanisms in order to ensure durability and continuity. The article is an attempt to answering the question of how and for what reasons it is possible that a family can overstep the norm, and why it should continue to maintain the pathology despite the conquences it may face. ItemKobiety na tynku pracy - bariery płci(Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM, 2005) Kwak, Anna; Gillian, PascalEconomic and social policies in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe were different from those in Western Europe. The transformation period brought essential changes in labour market to the countries of the former socialist bloc. New economic demands have introduced workplace closures and unemployment. In particular, in Poland, it is clear that women have suffered the most from the loss of employment. Does this mean that there is a return, or desire to return, to the traditional male breadwinner model of the family? Do high rates o f unemployment have an influence on attitudes towards women’s employment? Paid employment is important for women for various reasons. It is a source of their economic independence, opportunity for social and personal development and in a household context it influences their power, position and role. Is paid employment for women only a result of economic pressures? What kind of motives - material or nonmaterial - are involved in women’s decisions and desires about employment, especially women with young children? To what extent do they have choice? To what extent and in what ways is their choice constrained by structural factors in the labour market and society? During the communist era women had a guaranteed right to employment and they generally worked full time. At present, women have many more problems with getting and keeping jobs than men. Women are less attractive as workers. What forms of discrimination do mothers of young children experience in Poland’s labour market?
