Relational Depth in Online Therapy: Can it be experienced, and what facilitates and inhibits it?

‘With recent developments around the coronavirus, many counsellors and psychotherapists are having — or choosing — to move to online or telephone-based therapy with their clients.

  • Science, institutions, and values
    on 21st September 2020 at 7:52 am

    Abstract This paper articulates and defends three interconnected claims: firstly, that the debate on the role of values for science misses a crucial dimension, the institutional one; secondly, that institutions occupy the intermediate level between scientific activities and values and that they are to be systematically integrated into the analysis; thirdly, that the appraisal of the institutions of science with respect to values should be undertaken within the premises of a comparative…

  • Public employment services: Building social resilience in youth?
    on 21st September 2020 at 7:22 am

    Abstract It is contested to what extent public employment services (PES) help build resilience in young unemployed people. Drawing on qualitative interviews with 19 people born in Germany and Norway between 1990 and 1995, the article examines stories about how PES, in two different activation regimes, help young people find meaningful work. The analysis and discussion are carried out within a theoretical framework that combines the capability approach with social resilience literature in a…

  • Wish list thinking: The quasi‐endowment effect’s impact on online wish lists outcomes
    on 21st September 2020 at 5:57 am

    Abstract Marketing practitioners encourage retailers to incorporate online wish lists into their websites, based on the presumption of increasing future purchases. However, recent papers find that purchasing wish list products is far from guaranteed.

Across two studies, we…

  • Justice perceptions of artificial intelligence in selection
    on 21st September 2020 at 5:20 am

    Abstract Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly being utilized by organizations in selection decisions. However, research has fallen behind the practice, and one area in need of investigation is how applicants’ perceptions of justice are formed in this increased involvement of AI in the hiring process. Accordingly, two studies were conducted to investigate the effects of using AI in selection on justice perceptions. Findings indicated that AI‐based interviewing was generally viewed as…

  • Breaking down experience—Heidegger’s methodological use of breakdown in Being and Time
    on 20th September 2020 at 11:15 pm

    Abstract Phenomenologists draw on descriptions of experience to uncover the conditions that enable experience. However, a second‐order or distanced view of experience can distort it. In his analysis of the ready‐to‐hand, Heidegger utilizes experiences of breakdown to avoid this problem, but he does not provide a detailed account of why this methodology is effective. I use Heidegger’s analysis of interpretation to reconstruct a detailed account of the breakdown methodology and show why it…
