Community vitality

The study of measuring community vitality is relatively a new subject. Not much research has been done on it. For meaningful development and vitality of the community the emphasis on the quality of life of the community, not just on the economic aspects of it, is clearly important. This is because research has shown that an increase in material well-being over time does not increase the happiness of the people (Blanchflower and Oswald 2000; Diener and Oishi 2000; Myers 2000; Kenny 1999; Lane 1998; and Easterlin 1974, 1995; cited in Frey and Stutzer 2002). An increase in income definitely raises the happiness of the people with low income, but stops to do so beyond a certain level (Inglehart 1999). Besides an excessive focus on material development has led to a diminished sense of community in some countries.

Definitions of community are varied, but show three general characteristics: it is a social group, people in it have common activities and experiences, and it occupies a definite territorial area (Hoffer 1931). This paper is mainly concerned with geographic communities of people living in villages and towns.

This study pertains to determinants and methods that could maximize well-being and vitality of the community, as well as revitalize moribund communities. It examines interactions and relationships within and, to some extent, across communities. By looking at specific dimensions of community vitality, such as  giving and volunteering, social cohesion, safety, family, and duration of stay in the community; this paper gives some ideas on the state of community vitality in Bhutan. Relationships between these variables are also analysed.

  7. Obrigada. Estava me sentindo um pouco desconfortável, pois, assino várias newsletters de diferentes profissionais da LE e agora, quase todos, estão fazendo uma propaganda enorme sobre o Kevin. Alguns estão até oferecendo brindes e vales se a pessoa adquirir o ESF. Eu, sinceramente, não gostei muito disso, pois ficou quase que escancarado que ele fez uma boa oferta para os meus professores, mas, também parece, não os informou direito sobre o que é e como vai ser o curso. Não parece correto.

  25. Carrie to Brody in Series 2 Episode 5″Q&A “about Abu Nazir:”He pulled you apart until there was nothing left but pain. And then he relieved the pain and he put you back together again as someone else”. In first case the purpose is therapy, in second case– creating an assassin. Method is similar, but in first case the pain is psychological, in the second– pain is physical. Interesting it was done twice to the protagonist played by our favourite actor:–RRB- Thank you!

Loved to read your take on my favorite episode and have you call my attention to so much that I have missed. Let me add my different view on one conversation about the “false “issue.Axe:”False, like when someone knows they have to tell a lover good-by but they can’t so they sleep with HIM one last time etc. “He is talking about Wendy and himself. I believe she was at a point in her psychiatric training when it would have been unethical for her to continue both therapy and a sexual relationship with him. She had to choose treating him during his crisis. Looking at the timeline of the story they both quickly married soon after this episode which probably explains these two curious marriages.
