In its simplest definition, obesity is an increase in excessive fat accumulation in the body in a way that impairs health. If the energy taken with food is more than the energy spent, the excess energy is stored as fat in the body and causes obesity. Obesity has negative effects on all systems and psychological states in the body, and these effects cause many health problems. Childhood obesity is a serious medical condition that affects children and adolescents. Being healthy is not limited to the physical well-being of the child. At the same time, the child's psychological well-being is a condition that creates a whole with the development of a positive self-perception about himself. Preventing obesity is crucial to the health and well-being of children. Prevention of obesity in children can achieve with parents' conscious and active participation.</p> <p>In this study, childhood obesity and its precautions were compiled by researching various publications.</p> Havva Sabani, Yasemin Saban Copyright (c) 2022 International Scientific Journal Vision https://visionjournal.edu.mk/social/index.php/1/article/view/113 Thu, 01 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0200 ANXIETY DISORDER AND PSYCHOLOGICAL FACTORS IN ADOLESCENTS https://visionjournal.edu.mk/social/index.php/1/article/view/114 <p>Adolescence is when the individual develops and changes physically and spiritually, which begins after childhood. The individual started forming his ideas and thoughts and tried establishing his independence and identity in this period. In this process, the individual grows physically with her biological development and tries to understand her sexist identity with her sexual story. Because she has passed into the abstract period, she also forms her cognitive development.In adolescence, the period when all these developments are experienced, the individual is to gain and create his own identity. With the psychological effect of changes, adolescents are in stress and anxiety. As the state of anxiety causes positive situations in adolescents, this anxiety in which the physical and mental balance cannot establish causes psychological-based disorders. Anxiety disorder is one of them. Anxiety disorder occurs due to genetics, drugs, stress, and chemical substance use. It is a mental and physical disorder that the individual shapes without any relation to reality, has consequences on the adolescent, and affects the development and life functioning of the adolescent. These are panic attack disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and separation anxiety disorder. Conditions such as the adolescent's not continuing his education, his family's attitude, and the adolescent's personality traits affect this situation.</p> Müedin Kahveci, Tuna Tüner Copyright (c) 2022 International Scientific Journal Vision https://visionjournal.edu.mk/social/index.php/1/article/view/114 Thu, 01 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0200 THE CONCEPT OF GENDER AND RELATED THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK https://visionjournal.edu.mk/social/index.php/1/article/view/115 <p> Considering the fact that society treats women and men differently by assigning different characteristics, roles and responsibilities, the increasing number of studies on the causes of these differences has drawn attention to the concepts of "sex" and "gender".</p> <p>The concept of gender can be named as the stereotypes, judgments and prejudices acquired by the individual regarding gender during the socialization process, unlike the biological sex of the person. Gender is a socio-cultural phenomenon that emerges with the socialization process of the individual.</p> <p>The concept of gender is used to express the qualities built within the complex social relations network, the meanings attributed to femininity and masculinity, and the behaviors expected from them, apart from the concept of gender, which denotes the biological characteristics that define men and women.</p> <p>In this study, sex, gender roles, <strong> </strong>Gender equality/ Gender inequality and related theoretical approaches will be discussed in order to better understand the concept of gender.</p> Sehida Rizvance Masan Copyright (c) 2022 International Scientific Journal Vision https://visionjournal.edu.mk/social/index.php/1/article/view/115 Thu, 01 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0200 HYPER PRESIDENTIALISM AND FIRST YEAR OF THE TURKISH TYPE OF PRESIDENTIALISM https://visionjournal.edu.mk/social/index.php/1/article/view/116 <p>The new government system of Turkey can be described as hyper-presidentialism, this is because the president then becomes the arbiter of all powers. In another word, the power to enact decrees, appoint bureaucrats and judicial officials into offices, and the power to dissolve a parliament belongs solely to the president. As strong presidency fuse with disciplined party system as well as concurrent elections and 10 percent electoral threshold, the president possibly poses a great danger to the separation of powers. Additionally, with regards to the presidential term, the president constitutionally holds the power to be elected only for two terms in Turkey. However, Erdoğan and his supporters believe that the 2017 constitutional amendments that changed the system of government has reset the agenda. Thus, the 2017 amendments offered Erdoğan a secret opportunity to join the presidential election race for a third, and even a fourth term.</p> Azam Körbayram, Ahmet Ekinci Copyright (c) 2022 International Scientific Journal Vision https://visionjournal.edu.mk/social/index.php/1/article/view/116 Thu, 01 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0200 VOCABULARY LEARNING AND VOCABULARY LEARNING STRATEGIES https://visionjournal.edu.mk/social/index.php/1/article/view/117 <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Vocabulary learning is an important component&nbsp; in&nbsp; language&nbsp; learning&nbsp; and&nbsp; of&nbsp; critical&nbsp; importance&nbsp; to&nbsp; the&nbsp; typical&nbsp; language&nbsp; learner.&nbsp; It is a basic constituent of learning a language. If students lack vocabulary they&nbsp; will&nbsp; be&nbsp; unable&nbsp; to&nbsp; function&nbsp; in&nbsp; any&nbsp; particular communication. Also, the grammar&nbsp; or&nbsp; the structure&nbsp; of&nbsp; a&nbsp; language&nbsp; is also important.&nbsp; But if we wish to express ourselves effectively we need enough vocabulary. The more words we know, the better we understand what we read and listen to. Unfortunately, the&nbsp; importance of&nbsp; vocabulary&nbsp; teaching&nbsp; is being neglected&nbsp; by&nbsp; most&nbsp; of&nbsp; the&nbsp; language&nbsp; teachers. They assume&nbsp; that&nbsp; their&nbsp; students&nbsp; will&nbsp; learn&nbsp; words&nbsp; incidentally. It&nbsp; is&nbsp; thought&nbsp; that&nbsp; vocabulary&nbsp; expansion&nbsp; will&nbsp; happen&nbsp; through&nbsp; the&nbsp; practice&nbsp; of&nbsp; other&nbsp; language skills. Teachers&nbsp; need&nbsp; to&nbsp;&nbsp; be&nbsp; aware&nbsp; of&nbsp; and&nbsp; expand&nbsp; vocabulary&nbsp; teaching&nbsp; techniques. Furthermore, the language&nbsp; teacher&nbsp; needs&nbsp; to have a deep knowledge on Vocabulary Language Strategies, thus&nbsp; find&nbsp; systematic&nbsp; ways&nbsp; of&nbsp; helping&nbsp; learners&nbsp; in&nbsp; building&nbsp; vocabulary. This paper deals&nbsp; with&nbsp; some&nbsp; of&nbsp; the&nbsp; ways&nbsp; vocabulary&nbsp; is&nbsp; taught by pointing out the Vocabulary Learning, Learning Strategies and Vocabulary Learning&nbsp; Strategies.</p> Arafat Usein Copyright (c) 2022 International Scientific Journal Vision https://visionjournal.edu.mk/social/index.php/1/article/view/117 Thu, 01 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0200 INTEGRATION OF JURAN'S TRILOGY, DEMING'S QUALITY CYCLE AND DMAIC METHODOLOGY IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF MANAGEMENT WITH QUALITY COST METHODOLOGY https://visionjournal.edu.mk/social/index.php/1/article/view/118 <p>This paper presents systematized approach to introducing and implementing a management system with quality costs, with a development of a management methodology using quality costs which, in a structured and systematic manner includes all relevant procedures (algorithms), with a view fully expressing the benefits and usefulness of the quality costs.
