Fazem parte do campo da Atenção Básica à Saúde diversos elementos que compõem a vida das pessoas e que podem produzir ou agravar o sofrimento mental, demandando um cuidado que considere o modo como são produzidas as condições de existência do sujeito, estratégia que depende da rede de relações estabelecidas entre os trabalhadores do serviço porque as novas práticas em saúde, com vistas à integralidade da atenção, exigem uma interação entre diferentes saberes e fazeres. O objetivo desta pesquisa foi caracterizar a produção do cuidado em saúde mental de uma Unidade Básica de Saúde, tomando como analisador do trabalho em equipe o acolhimento, mediante sua potência em resgatar a humanização das relações e o espaço do trabalho como um lugar de sujeitos. Trata-se de um estudo de caso exploratório e descritivo, do qual participaram trabalhadores de saúde, de diferentes profissões, que fazem parte dos processos de trabalho em saúde mental do serviço. As técnicas de coleta de dados empregadas foram o grupo focal e o fluxograma analisador; os dados obtidos foram submetidos à análise de conteúdo do tipo temática, gerando quatro categorias empíricas: 1) O mapa afetivo dos primeiros agenciamentos: o conflito como motor de mudanças a construção de uma equipe de saúde mental no serviço...

The objective of this work is to present elements of the project Student engagement in Schools (SES). The team consists of 10 researchers from six Universities. Student engagement in schools is a multidimensional construct that unites affective, behavioural, and cognitive dimensions of student adaptation in the school and has influence on students‘outcomes. The team of researchers conceptualized two major studies, a differential study to analyze the relations between SES and contextual factors, personal factors, student’s outcomes, and a quasi-experimental study to analyze the effects on SES of a specific intervention programmes. In study 1, the sample size is around 600 students (150 6th graders, 150 7th graders, 150 9th graders, and 150 10th graders). We shall focus on years of school transition, with rural and urban populations, on different regions of the country, and on students with different family background. We shall conduct questionnaires with national and international scales. The study 2 will involve students in 7th and 9th grade, from four classes, two of the experimental group and two of the control group. Patterns of verbal communications between a teacher and students can influence the classroom environment and SES. This model of communication would result in more effective student management and more time on-task for learning.

Tese de mestrado integrado em Psicologia (Psicologia dos Recursos Humanos, do Trabalho e das Organizações), apresentada à Universidade de Lisboa através da Faculdade de Psicologia e de Ciências da Educação, 2008; A presente investigação tem como objectivo estudar o trabalho emocional envolvido na relação dos bombeiros com os seus colegas de turno e o impacto deste no engagement destes profissionais, e ainda o papel do coping social como variável mediadora desta relação. Para isto, recolheram-se dados sobre as exigências emocionais da função, as estratégias de coping e o engagement através da aplicação de questionários a 417 bombeiros sapadores, num total de 29 turnos. Os resultados permitem-nos concluir que o engagement se associa positivamente com o recurso a estratégias de coping activoprosocial e com a expressão de emoções positivas; por outro lado, relaciona-se negativamente com a expressão de emoções negativas e a utilização de estratégias de coping activo antisocial e passivo. Para alem disto, verificou-se que o coping activo prosocial medeia totalmente a relação entre exigências emocionais negativas e o engagement, e possui um efeito de mediação parcial da relação deste com as exigências emocionais positivas.; The present investigation claims to study the emotional work involved in the relationship between the firemen and their team mates and its impact on the engagement of these workers...

Dissertação de Mestrado em Biologia/Geologia para o ensino; Nas últimas décadas a investigação na área do Ensino tem demonstrado que a aprendizagem cooperativa favorece grandemente a melhoria do rendimento escolar e, simultaneamente o desenvolvimento de competências sociais pelos alunos. Na aprendizagem cooperativa os alunos trabalham juntos em pequenos grupos,heterogéneos, com o intuito de atingir objectivos de aprendizagem comuns. Os métodos,cooperativos possibilitam envolver todos os alunos na aprendizagem, sendo a,heterogeneidade encarada e potenciada como um elemento facilitador da aprendizagem, contrariamente ao que acontece na maioria das situações, quando o professor recorre à utilização de uma metodologia tradicional de ensino. Ao utilizar a diversidade entre os elementos de uma turma como elemento potenciador da aprendizagem, a aprendizagem cooperativa promove, por um lado, bons resultados escolares no domínio cognitivo e, por outro, importantes aprendizagens no que se refere ao domínio sócio-afectivo. De acordo com Johnson, Johnson e Stanne (2000), esta metodologia de ensino aprendizagem promove a socialização, desde o Jardim-de-infância até à Universidade, permitindo ganhos no que se refere às relações sociais entre diferentes culturas e etnias...

Tese de doutoramento em Psicologia / PsycINFO Classification Categories and Codes: 3660 Organizational Behavior; 3020 Group & Interpersonal Processes; The main goal of the present thesis is to propose, validate and understand the construct of team work engagement. The thesis includes one theoretical article and five empirical articles. Theoretically, team work engagement is defined as a shared emergent state that mediates the relationship between interpersonal team processes and team effectiveness. In studies 1 and 2, we aimed at validating the construct. Our results indicate that work engagement can be empirically assessed at the individual and team levels. Moreover, the findings support the proposed mediation role of team work engagement. Study 3 was aimed at investigating a specific interpersonal team process variable, team conflict, in the relationship between team resources and team effectiveness. Results show that task and relationship conflict are contextual variables that have a negative impact on team work engagement. Task conflict, however, can strengthen the positive relationship between team work engagement and team performance. In study 4 we investigated the cross-level influence of team work engagement and individual positive emotions on perceptions of team viability. Our results indicate that team-level states have a “protective” effect on this specific outcome. Finally...

Within the youth development field a growing movement exists to establish youth member positions on community teams (e.g. organizational boards and planning committees). The involvement of youth on decision-making teams is commonly referred to as youth engagement. As a relatively new approach to youth and community development, the existing research shows the potential positive impacts youth engagement efforts may produce and encourages youth practitioners to incorporate such efforts into their programs and organizations. In doing so, successful youth engagement efforts may be sustained within teams that best adapt their organizational structure, policies, and practices to complement the developmental needs of youth. Such adaptations begin with the four team characteristics presented in this paper: adult support, a youth-friendly environment, opportunities to complete meaningful tasks, and opportunities to learn and use new skills. When these practices are woven through the work of the team, youth engagement may flourish.

In this paper we maintain that 21st century science is, fundamentally, a relational process in which knowledge is produced (or co-produced) through transactions among researchers or among researchers and public stakeholders. We offer an expanded perspective on the practice of 21st century science, the production of scientific knowledge, and what community psychology can contribute to these developments. We argue that: 1) trends in science show that research is increasingly being conducted in teams; 2) scientific teams, such as transdisciplinary teams of researchers or of researchers collaborating with various public stakeholders, are better able to address complex challenges; 3) transdisciplinary scientific teams are part of the larger, 21st century transformation in science; 4) the concept of heterarchy is a heuristic for team science aligned with this transformation; 5) a contemporary philosophy of science known as perspectivism provides an essential foundation to advance 21st century science; and 6) community psychology, through its core principles and practice competencies, offers theoretical and practical expertise for advancing team science and the transformation in science currently underway. We discuss the implications of these points and illustrate them briefly with two examples of transdisciplinary team science from our own work. We conclude that a new narrative is emerging for science in the 21st century that draws on interpersonal transactions in teams...

As organizational leaders worry about the appalling low percentage of people who feel engaged in their work, academics are trying to understand what causes an increase in engagement. We collected survey data from 231 team members from two organizations. We examined the impact of team members’ emotional intelligence (EI) and their perception of shared personal vision, shared positive mood, and perceived organizational support (POS) on the members’ degree of organizational engagement. We found shared vision, shared mood, and POS have a direct, positive association with engagement. In addition, shared vision and POS interact with EI to positively influence engagement. Besides highlighting the importance of shared personal vision, positive mood, and POS, our study contributes to the emergent understanding of EI by revealing EI’s amplifying effect on shared vision and POS in relation to engagement. We conclude by discussing the research and practical implications of this study.

My capstone is an exploration into stages of boundary spanning and the challenges that result from attempting to work at the intersection of a critical power relationship: the school district and the community it serves. Denver Public Schools (DPS) recently unveiled the Denver Plan 2020, a strategic plan to lead the system towards the promise of “Great Schools in Every Neighborhood.” To embrace these goals, DPS announced an internal reorganization and committed to dramatic improvement alongside its community partners (charters, advocacy groups, political leaders and others). As a resident at DPS, I led as a boundary spanner between the Office of School Reform and Innovation (OSRI) and the Office of Family and Community Engagement (FACE) to facilitate stronger community engagement to achieve Denver Plan goals. Boundary spanning roles and teams process information, coordinate tasks between groups and represent teams externally, “linking organizational structure to environmental elements…buffering, moderating or influencing the environment” (Aldrich and Herker, 1977). My research concentrated on boundary spanning as an act to manage the relationship between internal and external authorization environments, boundary spanning in systems undergoing transition with “blended boundaries” (Scott...

O engagement no trabalho tem sido considerado um antecedente do comprometimento afectivo à organização, supervisor e equipa. Este estudo pretende investigar a relação entre o engagement e os focos de comprometimento afectivo mencionados. Pretende ainda perceber a relação entre os recursos laborais e o engagement e analisar as diferenças deste entre indivíduos que se encontram em outsourcing e os que trabalham directamente na organização que os contratou. Participaram 176 sujeitos do sector das Tecnologias de Informação (TI), sendo que 76 estão em outsourcing e 100 trabalham na organização de contrato. Verificou-se que os recursos laborais predizem o engagement, que por sua vez propicia vínculos afectivos dos colaboradores à organização, supervisor e equipa. Constatou-se ainda que o outsourcing não modera a relação entre essas variáveis, contudo é redutor dos níveis de engagement nos colaboradores. Assim, é importante reflectir acerca das consequências de “largar” um colaborador noutra organização e, simultaneamente encorajar o seu foco no trabalho; ABSTRACT: Work engagement has been identified as an antecedent of affective commitment to the organization, the supervisor and the team. This study aims to investigate the relationship between work engagement and this three focuses of affective commitment. Another objective is to understand the relationship that job resources establish with levels of work engagement and lastly...

The public sector of most developing countries is often the target of numerous criticisms - lack of or no infrastructure, absenteeism of service providers like teachers and doctors, poor quality of services, corruption, non-transparency, favoritism, discrimination, etc. While several of these criticisms are usually attributed to lack of resources and the conflict between the needs of equity and those of efficiency, research has shown in general that the correlation between increased public expenditure and actual outcomes or improvements in service delivery is weak. This gap between spending and development outcomes reflects more serious deficiencies of 'voice' and 'accountability' for citizens in general, and the poor in particular. The need for making services work for poor people is therefore immense, and has provided the theme for the World Bank's World Development Report (WDR) for 2004.

It is now increasingly recognized that, alongside the state and the market, civil society is a critical factor in determining the level, pace and equity of a country's economic, social and political development. Civic engagement is the participation of private actors in the public sphere, conducted through direct and indirect interactions of civil society organizations and citizens-at-large with government, multilateral institutions and business establishments to influence decision making or pursue common goals. It is a process that organizes citizens or their entrusted representatives to "influence, shape and control public affairs and development initiatives, implementation and resources. Under the right conditions civic engagement can promote development and improve the economic and social conditions of the poor. How civil society can maximize its potential in alleviating poverty and promoting social accountability, and what types of laws, regulations, governance and cultural norms are needed to create the most conducive environment in which civil society operates...

In February 2006, the government of Liberia invited the World Bank Group to work with the country to implement a comprehensive multiyear advisory services program. The program is designed to support the growth of a vibrant domestic private sector in Liberia that can create employment, increase opportunities for growth, attract partners, and provide services for quality international investment. The private sector development program in postconflict Liberia is being implemented by the investment climate team for Africa on behalf of the World Bank Group. The team is managed by the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and draws staff and resources from across the World Bank Group and development partners to help governments in Africa achieve successful reform. Underpinning the team's approach in Liberia is a deliberate strategy to engage with the government and all other key stakeholders, including civil society, the media, and the private sector. In the case of Liberia, this is all the more important...

This study examined work engagement among brain injury rehabilitation professionals with specific attention to how they engage with their work (the extent to which they experience vigor, dedication, and absorption while working) and how they engage with people (the degree to which they are welcoming towards others and demonstrate integrity, responsibility, transparency). This study also tested a theoretical model of work engagement that predicted a relationship between engagement and personal, interpersonal, and organizational capacity. Eighty-one staff employed in a hospital-based brain injury program participated in the study. A quantitative self-report survey was used to measure participants' levels of capacity and engagement and a qualitative question was included to identify initiatives that could be introduced to enhance job performance. As predicted by the model, there were statistically significant positive correlations among all three capacity variables and engagement with work and statistically significant positive correlations between ethical engagement and personal and interpersonal capacity. The results of the qualitative data analysis revealed three broad categories of recommendations for improving job performance (more learning opportunities...

Le but de cette recherche est la vérification des relations entre les pratiques de leadership et la performance de l’équipe. Nous nous concentrons sur deux pratiques de leadership distinctes : le leadership d’empowerment et le leadership autocratique. Cette recherche vise également à comprendre le rôle médiateur de l’engagement des membres envers les objectifs d’équipe dans ces relations. De plus, nous examinons la combinaison des deux pratiques de leadership chez un même responsable d’équipe, à savoir si l’adoption d’un style de leadership peut réduire ou amplifier l’effet de l’autre style de leadership. Les données de types secondaires ont été colligées auprès de 381 membres faisant partie de 101 équipes ainsi que des 101 supérieurs immédiats de ces équipes œuvrant dans une organisation de sécurité publique canadienne. Ces données ont été recueillies grâce à un questionnaire. Des analyses factorielles confirmatoires et des analyses de régression hiérarchique ont permis de vérifier nos huit hypothèses. Les résultats montrent que les pratiques de leadership sont modérément et significativement liées à la performance d’équipe. Les pratiques de leadership sont également liées fortement et significativement à l’engagement des membres envers les objectifs d’équipe. Par ailleurs...

Le monde actuel, marqué par une augmentation incessante des exigences professionnelles, requiert des enseignants une adaptation constante aux changements sociaux, culturels et économiques. Si, pour les enseignants expérimentés, l’accommodation à ces transformations est accompagnée de plusieurs défis, pour les nouveaux enseignants qui ne maîtrisent pas complètement tous les aspects de la profession, l’intégration au milieu scolaire peut être extrêmement difficile ou même insupportable, au point où certains quittent le métier. Néanmoins, à force de persévérance, un certain nombre des nouveaux enseignants franchissent les obstacles imposés par la profession. Dans leur cas, la satisfaction et l’engagement professionnel peuvent être des caractéristiques importantes qui les incitent à continuer à exercer leurs activités d’enseignement. Dans ce contexte, l’étude vise l’analyse des éléments liés à la construction de l’identité professionnelle des enseignants lors de leur insertion dans le métier, à partir des perceptions des nouveaux enseignants et de celles des gestionnaires des écoles primaires et secondaires. L’harmonie entre la perception de ces deux groupes d’acteurs scolaires peut constituer un important facteur du rendement des professionnels dans leur métier et de l’efficacité des institutions d’enseignement.

Unit-based teams (UBTs)—defined as natural work groups of physicians, managers, and frontline staff who work collaboratively to solve problems, improve performance, and enhance quality—were established by the 2005 national agreement between Kaiser Permanente (KP) and the Coalition of KP Unions. They use established performance-improvement techniques and employee-engagement principles (including social-movement theory) to achieve clinical and operational goals. UBT members identify performance gaps and opportunities within their purview—issues they can address in the course of the day-to-day work, such as workflow or process improvement. By focusing on clear, agreed-on goals, UBTs encourage greater accountability and allow members to perform their full scope of work. UBTs are designed to deliver measurable benefits in clinical outcomes and operations, patient-experience enhancements, and physician-team performance or work life. For many physicians, UBTs will require new ways of engaging with their teams. However, evidence suggests that with organizational and physician support, these teams can achieve their goals. This article presents case examples of successful UBTs' outcomes; physicians' comments on their experience working with teams; an overview of UBTs' employee-engagement principles; and advice on how physicians can support and participate in the work of such teams.

Emotional contagion theory applied to work and organizations posits that positive emotions are shared among team members, thus enabling them to converge in desirable shared states such as team work engagement. The aim of this study is to analyze how similarity among team members in terms of gender and company tenure is related to convergence in work engagement at the team level. Similarity in terms of gender and company tenure was expected to be positively related to convergence in team work engagement. Hierarchical regression modeling in 161 teams showed that similarity in terms of gender was positively related to convergence in team work engagement, whereas, unexpectedly, similarity in company tenure was negatively related to convergence in team work engagement.
