This newly developed PRQ was utilized into prior research to predict the levels of adjustment in children. There has been limited research conducted on behavioral adjustment in children with life threatening illness. This qualitative study utilized an open-ended interview process to gather information about the factors that promote behavioral adjustment and whether or not the factors already researched in quantitative studies applied. Participants were also recruited by word-of-mouth after calling such groups and individuals in California.
The Photographic Comportment of Bernd and Hilla Becher Blake Stimson Bernd and Hilla Becher first began their still-ongoing project of systematically photographing industrial structures — water towers, blast furnaces, gas tanks, mine heads, grain elevators and the like — in the late s.
That said, their project did draw its original vitality from two prewar influences, and Thematic analysis of zeitenschlag by becher would seem to locate their ambition elsewhere — that is, strictly on the side of what was once called the New Objectivity with nothing in common with the postwar subjectivist enterprises of Steichen or Steinert or Frank.
Just to recall a key influence from a history that is well known to any student of the Bechers, scientific method, industrial subject matter and the mechanical advantage of photography — to varying degrees among their Machine Age forebears from around the industrialised world and across the political spectrum — all drew on and supported a challenge to the perceived anachronism of aestheticism and subjectivism and promised a new place and new importance for artists in the modern world.
That ambition was developed in many places — for example by Aleksandr Rodchenko in when he wrote: It will continue to exist as long as there is a mania for the romantic and so long as there are people who love beautiful lies and deceptions.
Every modern cultured man must make war against art as against opium. More broadly still, of course, this tension between art as an autonomous and self-contained value, on the one hand, and modern life, on the other, has regularly given definition and distinction to the social role played by photography throughout its history.
From the beginning, photography was not only a passive product or sign or symptom of modernity but also worked actively as an engine of modernisation. These assumptions are misleading, however: To do so, the objects must be isolated from their context and freed from all association.
Indeed, comporting oneself to see the world in this way — to see it grandly without caring about that grandeur — may be said to be their legacy. In the forest, we acquiesce to the spiritual pleasure of solitude. We turn inward, breathing slowly.
In order to flesh out the details of this bearing or comportment I shall be working between three separate attitudes that each can be said to be driving the Becher project: There is another obvious rule too, although one their project might be said to systematically ignore — their industrial history is exclusively and resolutely a history of the west.
We need make only the most rudimentary comparisons to see that theirs is a project about modernisation not globalisation and so does not detail, or even allude to, the geopolitical ambitions and conflicts that drive the process.
Three workers, migrants from rural areas, are retrieving waste iron using a magnet on the end of a bamboo pole. This photograph shows an outlet for flushing waste materials from an iron-smelting furnace at the Capital Steel factory, Beijing.
While an individual Becher photograph seen on its own without attribution could be mistaken easily as the sort of transparent illustration used in trade journals or annual reports, for example, or in books on the history or design of industrial architecture, the same photograph seen in its intended setting alongside tens or hundreds of nearly identical others could not support any similar instrumental goal.
This distinctive method of cultivating aesthetic response is consistent with the s and s project of aesthetic appropriation of scientific or systemic method, but it is also different. Perhaps the most significant measure of difference between the Bechers and their forebears is artistic ambition.
This mission offered artists a sense of social significance that the profession had not enjoyed since its days in the court.
This social isolation had been a by-product of the Industrial Revolution, as typical and pernicious as slums, mechanisation and unemployment. What gave artists renewed confidence and ambition was a new understanding of patronage that had been made possible by the revolutions of the s.
Instead of decorating the private mansions of individual bankers or businessmen, artists were hired by revolutionary governments in Russia and Mexico and patronised by communist parties in much of the rest of the industrialised world to make art that spoke about and addressed itself to the working masses.
This new sense of significance and anticipation of an emerging audience and market quickly impressed itself upon most of the developing movements of the period regardless of whether the political conditions existed to actually support such ambition. A rich sense of this anticipated social role was given in a series of statements by the Russian-born, Berlin-trained, New York-based, Precisionist-turned-Social Realist Louis Lozowick on the changing status of the artist in the Soviet Union.
Full members in trade unions, the artists carry insurance against sickness, accident and unemployment. They are consulted on every issue that vitally affects the country. When we read, for example, of such vast projects as the ten year plan for the complete rebuilding of Moscow, the most gigantic scheme of city planning in history, we are not surprised to find artists actively cooperating.

Narratives of their life experience with the child having life-threatening illness were examined. Emergent themes, previously mentioned, were elicited from the interview material in hopes of providing additional support services needed as voiced by the parents/caregivers.
These were transcribed verbatim and thematic analysis was conducted.
