Presentations of the Symposium
Flamenco And Sevillanas As Emotional Expression In Andalucia
Emotionally expressive Flamenco dancing, originating in Andalusia spring fairs, impacts wellness, providing relaxation and enhancing coexistence. The musical genre crosses borders, practiced nearby France and even in Japan. Flamenco dance is used as a therapeutic mediator for maltreated women, people with disabilities, and people who need improve their self-esteem.
Kindness Maturity: Data Comparisons Japan, Italy, Greece, Chile and Australia
Four Stages Scale of Kindness Maturity data compares cultural similarities and differences in kindness across Japan Italy, Greece, Chile and Australia. Cross-national differences show Japanese demonstrate a higher level of kindness at the relational than personal level. The findings are discussed and direction for future research suggested.
Executive Wellness: Framingham Studies, Brain & Vital Sign Health Advances
Studies of heart health and stress cite Framingham Heart Studies as seminal work. Ongoing data collection escalates the role of population research on heart and collateral health. Neuroscientists, Clinical & Consulting psychologists offer training in brain plasticity, report lower rates of executive heart disease and extend emotional “vital signs” knowledge.
Mental Acuity and Personal Identity/Self Concept in the Elderly
In Japan, life expectancy reached 87.2 in 2017. Persons over 65 exceed 1/4 of Japan’s population, creating social and economic problems. Moreover, elders losing self-identities lack enjoyment of life. How can scientific /interdisciplinary approaches be helpful? I propose Interest Group members design a study with findings presented at upcoming conferences.
