Use of horticultural products in the advertising of non-horticultural products: The advertisers of non-horticultural products, like telephone and computer manufacturers, have used horticultural products in their advertisements.
These horticultural products include fruits and vegetables. This presentation deals with a survey of advertising agencies to find out the reasons for the popularity of horticultural products in advertising non-horticultural products.
Although the project is not yet complete, some of the reasons that have been identified are: The project draws the attention of horticulturists to this phenomenon and analyzes the thinking of advertisers in capturing the attention of the general public by using fruits and vegetables in their advertisements.
Airhart, Douglas and Kathleen M. Measuring client improvement in vocational horticultural training. Horticultural activities incorporated into training programs can improve behavioral and job skills of persons with a variety of disabilities Daubert and Rothert, ; Hefley, These activities can be adapted to clients with day care, sheltered workshop, borderline competitive and competitive employment capabilities Hudak, The horticultural industry has experienced a shortage of trained persons to fulfill the labor requirements Roche, Vocational horticultural training programs can provide clients trained for entry level positions in horticulture Hefley, Successful programs incorporate prior appraisal of a client's adaptive behavior skills, a statement of training objectives, and, if necessary, a baseline task analysis of activities.
A structured work routine is followed to avoid confusion, and experienced clients assist new clients which builds self-confidence. Clients practice skills that help them to gain a sense of job responsibility through the daily activities of plant care and greenhouse maintenance.
They can improve the quality of their lives through a positive self-image and a degree of self-sufficiency Airhart and Tristan, Few tools, however, exist for documenting improvement and maintenance of competitive skills in horticulture. Experimental design issues that arise while measuring the effectiveness of horticultural therapy at a veterans administration medical center.
Due to the difficulties in establishing a control group in a hospital setting, we have temporarily suspended our desire to conduct a true experimental study.
The goal of our present project is to refine our outcome measures in order to quantify the changes that we feel occur with a psychiatric population. Our hypothesis is that patients experience improvements in such areas as general psychiatric functioning, self- esteem, socialization, and the ability to work with co-workers and supervisors as a function of their involvement in horticultural therapy.
However, at this time we need to determine if we have the proper outcome measures to detect changes and if those changes are perceived differently by the various members in the therapeutic process e.
There would be little reason to encounter the obstacles involved in the establishment of a control group unless there was faith in the dependent variables that would be utilized.
We believe that a longitudinal study with observations from several different agents in the therapeutic process would be a fruitful next step. We visualize the procedure consisting of patients filling out a self- esteem scale at the time they begin the program as well as the staff completing the Horticultural Therapy Questionnaire designed by the present authors and mentioned earlier.
A psychologist outside of the program would provide a general assessment of psychiatric functioning utilizing the Global Assessment Scale Endicott, et al. These measures would be repeated at several times e.
A discharge interview would also be conducted to obtain the patient's perceptions of the positive and negative contributions of horticultural therapy in their overall treatment plan. It would be our hope to develop more appropriate future outcome measures from these exit interviews.
Prior to the settlement of the Old Northwest Territory, the landscape was blanketed with a great, enclosed forest canopy interrupted by a series of clearly-defined open spaces. The openness of these isolated, treeless spaces were in sharp contrast to the enclosed, special feeling provided by the forest.
To the new settlers the diversity of plants and the spaces they created were of little importance. Cleared, open land harbored wealth and capital; the forest and its environs was nothing more than another obstacle to overcome on the way to a better life.
This presentation explores the relationship between early s, historical field-mapped, plant community data of those isolated, open spaces and specific soils data developed in the s.Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) take a major human toll on society and reduce public confidence in the healthcare system.
The current convergence of scientific, public, and legislative interest in reducing rates of HAI can provide the necessary momentum to address and .
