Individuals who use this coping style tend to be less depressed and more satisfied with their lives. (Kulich, et al. 1998)
High El students were able to use their social skills to access their social network in coping with their stress. They were able to use interpersonal skills to address stressful conflicts with colleagues and patients.
Low El students tended to procrastinate and withdraw from their social support network.
Interpersonal skills are recommended as ideal skills in a good dentist and discussing problems with other per-sons involved has been cited as a coping strategy for stress in practising dentist. (Lundh, et al. 2001)
High El students were able to judge that such behaviours were not helpful. Health-damaging behaviours such as tobacco and alcohol consumption
Adopting health-damaging lifestyles or behaviours was reported by low El students in response to their experiences of stress.
The use of drugs and medication are commonly reported in the literature as responses to stress in dental students (Underwood & Fox 2000) and practising dentists.(Forest 1978)
The authors state that this study is the first to link El and health-damaging lifestyles or behaviours in dental undergraduates.
Apart from causing harm to themselves, such habits may have implications on the students' perception of their role in health education on tobacco and alcohol consumption.
Most of the interviewees recognised that organisation and time-management were important in coping with stress.
High El students in the present study reported how they organised their activities and managed their time with confidence.
Low El students were tentative about how they structured their time.
The results of the present study indicate that reflection and appraisal, social and interpersonal, and organisation and time-management skills are associated with high El students, whereas health-damaging behaviours are associated with low...
Whilst the location of the teaching (wards, clinics, clinical skills centres and ambulatory teaching areas) and the authenticity of the patient (real patient, simulated patient or model) may vary, the principles of the small group work are the same. The small group instructional skills of clinical teachers are considered one of the most important determinants of effective clinical teaching
This is especially true of dental students during their undergraduate training. They often come into contact with their fellow students, tutors and patients in the context of a small-group, usually an intimate chair-side learning environment. In this environment El is an important resource that enables students to manage stressful emotions in themselves and in those they work closely with.
The Chart here shows the relevant factors in small group sessions and is perhaps where the fundamental practice of better EI coping strategies should begin.

Ethical Aspects in Research Studies The essential aspects of research are the concern and respect that the researchers offer to the participants. Research is aimed at producing insights that are beneficial to the society. However, the research should be conducted ethically. The ethical concern in research adduces that it should not advance a society at the detriment of others especially the participants in the research. Ethics in research is vital because
Gerontology The research study framework explains the theory or a part of the theory that is to be tested in the research study. The framework shows the relationship between the different variables and helps to create the hypothesis which is to be tested in the research. The important concepts of quantitative study design are introduction, methods, results, discussion, conclusion and recommendation. List the type of quantitative research design and briefly describe how each

Sampling and Empirical Research Studies Quantitative scientific studies typically require sample sizes that are sufficiently large enough to produce valid interpretable data, and using a questionnaire-based survey to poll a large group of respondents is a traditionally accepted methodology within the realm of scholarly research. The objective of any survey-based sampling experiment is to translate raw statistical data on a testable subject of interest, obtained from a sizable sample of relevant
They discovered various anthropometric variables such as calculating body mass index, pediatric calculation capabilities, etc. They found that none of the computers used Internationale units, only English and/or metric. They compared user instruction booklets for ease of understanding and found that none of the five included a toll-free telephone number. They also found variations between the calculators when basal energy expenditure and ideal body weight were calculated, but could
