Emotions and Gender: Combination of Patient’s and Therapist’s Gender has Impact on Psychotherapy – Including Erotic Feelings
  Current research findings by Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences to be integrated into curriculum   Krems, 5 June 2018 – Gender can have an influence on psychotherapy. This is backed up by the latest analysis and long-term research carried out by the director of the Psychotherapy and Counselling Science BA-degree programme at Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences in Krems (KL Krems). The results show that gender identity affects the emotions of both patients and therapists. This can give rise to specific dynamics in the therapeutic relationship, for instance in terms of power, and can also lead to sexualised atmospheres. A recent publication focusing on psychotherapeutic practice describes how such developments can come about.   Psychotherapy is all about emotions –regarding patients of course, but also their therapists. They need to “resonate“with their patients’feelings and react on the basis of their own emotions. In an article in the latest ...

Long-term Psychological Study Confirms: Time is The Best Medicine Against Homesickness
Researcher from Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences investigated feelings of homesickness among exchange students abroad   Krems, 23 May 2018 – Time heals homesickness – and quickly, according to a unique long-term study on international students. A propensity towards neuroticism and the desire to keep others happy are among the factors associated with the development of homesickness. However, the study also found that the level of homesickness among those currently studying abroad is generally low. The investigation was facilitated by a smartphone app that enabled students to participate in the study while they were still abroad.    Homesickness hurts. But on top of that, it can lead to health, cognitive and academic difficulties, reclusiveness and general mental health problems. In light of all these effects, it is remarkable that so little scientific research into the phenomenon has been carried out, especially in view of people’s increased mobility and widespread ...

Useful Alcohols: Ceresana Analyzes the World Market for Solvents
Solvents play a major role in industrial production: They can dissolve, dilute, and, in a very fine distribution, absorb other substances without changing them chemically. Solvents (sometimes also called dissolvents) are mainly used in the paints and varnishes, print inks, and adhesives industry but also, for example, as an ingredient of pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and detergents. Substances that cause unpleasant odors, explosive vapors, as well as health and environmental damages are controversial and increasingly targeted by the legislature. Ceresana analyzed the global market for solvents already for the fourth time. Paint Industry Looking for Alternatives The largest consumers of solvents are manufacturers of paints and varnishes, followed at a considerable distance by producers of printing inks. Demand on the part of the pharmaceutical industry ranked third, followed by utilization in cosmetics and adhesives. Other important applications are chemical manufacturing processes, cooling circuits, dry-cleaning, and deicers. However, a trend away from solventborne ...
