Background: Knowledge about climate change may produce anxiety, but the concept of climate change anxiety is poorly understood. The primary aim of this study was to systematically review the qualitative literature regarding the scope of anxiety responses to climate change. The secondary aim was to investigate the sociodemographic and geographical factors which influence experiences of climate change anxiety. Methods: A systematic review of empirical qualitative studies was undertaken, examining the scope of climate change anxiety by searching five databases. Studies were critically appraised for quality. Content analysis was used to identify themes. Results: Fifteen studies met the inclusion criteria. The content analysis was organised into two overarching themes. The scope of anxiety included worry about threats to livelihood, worry for future generations, worry about apocalyptic futures, anxiety at the lack of response to climate change, and competing worries. Themes pertaining to responses to climate change anxiety included symptoms of anxiety, feeling helpless and disempowered, and ways of managing climate change anxiety. Relatively few studies were identified, with limited geographical diversity amongst the populations studied. Conclusions: The review furthers understanding of the concept of climate change anxiety and responses to it, highlighting the need for high-quality psychiatric research exploring its clinical significance and potential interventions.

The purpose of this study was to discuss the ethical role of the guidance and counseling profession, especially the principle of confidentiality in the implementation of online counseling. This research method uses a descriptive qualitative literature review that examines several scientific articles accompanied by the results of interviews and previous research results. The data analysis technique uses descriptive analysis techniques. The results of this study explain that counselors have an ethical responsibility to explain the meaning of confidentiality in group counseling. The principle of confidentiality is important considering that the professional ethics of the counselor pays more attention to the privacy of the counselee, because it will involve comfort and security in receiving counseling services. In the implementation of online counseling, counselors can anticipate the possibility of unwanted violations by making efforts such as: (1) Conducting interviews and evaluations when forming groups, (2) Conducting in-depth observations when providing classical services in the classroom, (3) Grouping individuals who voluntarily and voluntarily participate in group activities, (4) Giving informed consent containing personal data, applicable rules, and cooperation agreements which contain the privacy security of themselves and other members, (5) Members affix their signatures on the under a statement about what they will accept if they do not fulfill it.

The American scientist Carl Sagan once said: “You have to know the past to understand the present.” We argue that having a meaningful dialogue on the future of simulation requires a baseline understanding of previous discussions on its future. For this paper, we conduct a review of the discrete event simulation (DES) literature that focuses on its future to understand better the path that DES has been following, both in terms of who is using simulation and what directions they think DES should take. Our review involves a qualitative literature review of DES and a quantitative bibliometric analysis of the Modeling and Simulation (M&S) literature. The results from the bibliometric study imply that demographics of the M&S community are rapidly changing, both in terms of the nations that use M&S and the academic disciplines from which new simulationists hail. This change in demographics has the potential to help aid the community face some of its future challenges. Our qualitative literature review indicates that DES still faces some significant challenges: these include integrating human behavior; using simulation for exploration, not replication; determining return on investment; and communication issues across a splitting community.

Krisis ekologi sudah sangat mengancam kehidupan. Berbagai bencana dan penderitaan melanda dunia. Namun, krisis ekologi masih terjadi. Oleh sebab itu, krisis ekologi mesti diatasi dengan berbagai cara. Salah satu cara yang dapat dilakukan adalah menggali berbagai potensi kearifan lokal yang ada di wilayah setempat. Tulisan ini bertujuan untuk menunjukkan bahwa dalam ritual nahunan yang biasanya dilakukan oleh suku Dayak Ngaju tidak hanya sekedar upacara rutin, tetapi terdapat nilai-nilai ekologis yang dapat menyadarkan masyarakat, khususnya orang Dayak Ngaju bahwa mereka harus ikut terlibat dalam mengatasi krisis ekologis yang sedang terjadi. Tulisan ini menggunakan metode kualitatif kepustakaan yakni menggali berbagai sumber yang relevan untuk membahas topik dan mendapatkan data yang dibutuhkan, kemudian akan digali internalisasi nilai yang terdapat dalam ritual nahunan tersebut. Dalam ritual nahunan ditemukan nilai-nilai ekologis yang menunjukkan bahwa terdapat internalisasi konsep bahwa alam adalah keluarga. Konsep tersebut dapat mendukung pemeliharaan lingkungan hidup melalui ritual nahunan Suku Dayak Ngaju. Konsep tersebut dapat dikembangkan untuk mendorong kepedulian masyarakat dalam memelihara lingkungan hidup. Konsep tersebut adalah berupa nilai-nilai yang menganggap alam sebagai keluarga bagi manusia.ABSTRACTThe ecological crisis is already very life-threatening. Various disasters and suffering have hit the world. However, the ecological crisis is still occurring. Therefore, the ecological crisis must be overcome in various ways. One way that can be done is to explore the potential of local wisdom in the local area. This paper aims to show that the nahunan ritual, which is usually carried out by the Ngaju Dayak tribe, is not just a routine ceremony. However, ecological values can make people aware, especially the Ngaju Dayak people, that they must be involved in overcoming the ecological crisis. This paper uses a qualitative literature method to explore various relevant sources to discuss the topic and obtain the data needed. Then, the internalization of the values contained in the nahunan ritual will be explored. In the nahunan ritual, ecological values are found, which indicate an internalization of the concept of nature as family and can be encouraged through environmental preservation in the nahunan ritual of the Ngaju Dayak Tribe. This concept can be developed to encourage public awareness of preserving the environment. The concept is expressed in the form of values that involve nature as a family for humans.

Background There has been a call for a framework to guide recovery-oriented practices in forensic mental health services. Aims This study aims to examine personal recovery and its challenges in forensic mental health settings in relation to the established framework for personal recovery in mental illness: connectedness, hope, identity, meaning and empowerment (CHIME). Method This study is an updated and expanded systematic review and thematic synthesis of the qualitative literature. A systematic search of six electronic databases (Web of Science, Medline, PsycINFO, CINAHL, EMBASE and SocIndex) was carried out in January 2019, using the terms [Recover*] AND [Forensic OR Secure] AND [Patient* OR Offend* OR Service User*]. Only studies that included service user's own perceptions and were published from 2014 onward were included in the review. Data were examined with thematic synthesis and subsequently analysed in relation to the CHIME framework. Results Twenty-one studies were included in the review. Findings suggest that some adjustments to the original CHIME framework are needed for it to be more relevant to forensic populations, and that an additional recovery process regarding feeling safe and being secure (safety and security) could be added to CHIME, providing the CHIME-Secure framework (CHIME-S). Specific challenges and barriers for forensic recovery were identified and found to represent the opposite of the recovery processes defined by CHIME (e.g. hopelessness). Conclusions We present the CHIME-S as a framework for the personal recovery processes of forensic mental health service users. The CHIME-S may guide the recovery-oriented work of forensic mental health services.

In a secular society, obsessed with materialism and consumerism, the 13th-century mystical teacher and poet, Jalaluddin Rumi (1207–1273), has found a surprisingly widespread following. While his work is often misunderstood and diluted, this research proposed the opposite: that Rumi may broaden his modern admirers’ worldview and bring about an encounter with God. This study thus applied the insights of an 800-year-old mystic to the questions of today. The research comprised of a qualitative literature research method that first explored the life and writings of Rumi, and then investigated the issues and yearnings of a secular society as proposed by philosopher Charles Taylor. The study showed that Rumi may indeed open up the enclosed secular worldview by adding significance to our living, God to our loving and hope to our dying.Intradisciplinary and/or interdisciplinary implications: This article was a study in religion – applying the work of a medieval Sufi mystic to the philosophical questions of today. It also considered Anatolian history and Persian literature and offered philosophical options. It further related to missiology, as well as systematic and practical theology.

This study aim to investigate the concept of dilālah fi'li al-Nabi in terms of interpreting the sunnah from the prophet. This study also aim to know the implication of dilālah fi'li al-Nabi of the perspective of fiqh ikhtilaf. The methodological approach of the study was qualitative literature review using philosophical normative approach and the rules of ushul fiqh approach. The results of this study indicate that: (1) The law of Istinbāṭ sunnah fiʻliyah has been considered to be different from sunnah qauliyah, particularly in an attempt to understand the dilālah. If the sunnah qauliyah is merely interpreted based just only by its language, the fi'liyah sunnah is interpreted based on the essence of prophets’ actions also. Therefore, it is necessary to have a deep understanding of determining the law of the Prophet's actions. The Prophet's position as a qudwah and a human being that Allah has given distinction to him made the application of the law become different to his followers. So that it has to be taken into consideration before deciding any laws related to the prophet’s hadiths. (2) Ikhtilaf uṣūliyīn on dilālah fi'l al-Nabī has implications on various fiqh problems which postulate the actions of the Prophet. Ikhtilaf happens in an attempt to understand fi’l al-Nabī al-mujarrad because there are no supporting argument or the qarīnah, the explanatory instructions which is useful as a lawmaker. Some uṣūliyīn think that taʼassī in terms of the actions done by Nabi Muhammads’ followers will be rewarded by Allah though the actions are not related to any worship. Therefore, the spirit of taʼassī to sunna Nabi must be follewed by a proper understanding and a proper application, because a contradictive application of maqāṣid syarīʻah can happen if it is partially understood and jumūd. In contrast, the other groups that are against this spirit must beware of falling into excessive attitudes that can ruin the good relation between muslims, and must beware of falling into deviations.

Agriculture is facing mounting challenges across the globe and must move towards more sustainable practices to combat climate change and meet changed production requirements. Education has been acknowledged as highly important in a sustainable transition, but there is no clear agreement about what skills are needed for professionals in the agricultural system. The purpose of this paper is to identify and analyse skills needed for professionals in the agricultural system to engage in the transition towards sustainable agriculture and elaborate on the implications of this for a transition towards sustainable agriculture. The review is based on a qualitative semi-systematic literature review of 20 peer-reviewed articles concerned with sustainability, skills, and agriculture. Five categories of skills were identified and analysed, including systems perspective, lifelong learning, knowledge integration, building and maintaining networks and learning communities, and technical and subject-specific knowledge and technology. As the identified categories of skills have emerged from different contextual settings and a diverse group of actors, these five categories encourage a broad and inclusive understanding of skills that can be translated into different contextual settings, scales, and professions within the agricultural system. The article concludes that professionals engaged in the transition towards sustainable agriculture need skills that encourage a perspective that moves beyond generic discipline-based skills and instead builds on heterogeneity, inclusion, and use of different actors’ knowledge, practices, and experiences, and the ability to respond and be proactive in a constantly changing world.
