D. Summary of my Activities and Future Plans

Ispecialize in close human relationships and how they affect function, health,and well-being across the human life span, both in health and educationalsettings.

Iam one of just a few researchers who quantitatively investigate the nature andextent of support provided to older adults by family members in the hospitalsetting. This is a unique field of inquiry given the technical complexity ofgenerating studies in hospital settings that involves many intervening factorswhich must be considered. I have developed and validated a method of measuringthe amount of support provided to older adults in the hospital setting (D7).This measure has been administered in three large scale studies involving morethan two thousand older adults. These studies were funded by the Israel ScienceFoundation, Israel National Institute for Health Policy and Health Services,and Clalit Health Services.

Throughmy research, I have found that family member support provided to hospitalizedolder adults is highly prevalent, varies in kind and amount, and is related toolder adults’ demographic and cultural characteristics. Emotional support hasbeneficial consequences for older adults’ mental state, whereas help with activitiesof daily living for independent older adults has negative consequences forwellbeing and function. In these research projects, I have supervised apost-doctoral fellow, a doctoral student and three master’s degree students. Todate, this research has yielded five published papers (D8, D9, D22, D24, D28).This research has been presented in conferences of the Association forGerontology and Geriatrics in the US and Europe.

Ihave organized and chaired a symposium about the complexity of providing familysupport to older adults in the hospital setting, resulting in presentationsbefore the International Congress of the Association for Gerontology andGeriatrics European Region in 2019. I was a member of the scientific committeeof a conference about older adults’ functional ability in hospital settings, andhave held colloquia about family support for older adults. Given my cumulativeexpertise, I have served as a reviewer of scientific papers concerningcaregiving relations and older adults.

            Since 2016, I have engaged in thedevelopment of a research area concerning personality and function of parentsand teachers. I developed a measure to investigate social information processingby parents and have administered it in studies concerning parents’ personalitytraits and the ways in which personality traits affect parental cognition,emotion and behavior in social interactions involving their children. Thesestudies have suggested that social information processes mediate the relationsbetween parents’ personality traits and behavior, and children’s socialcognition. In these projects I have supervised four master’s degrees students.Two of the resulting theses were published in peer-reviewed scientific journals(D20, D25) and one is currently being prepared for publication.

Inthe last decade I have taught research seminars and final research projectseminars for master’s students. I have supervised the preparation of a doctoratethesis and 11 master’s theses. Six of these students graduated with distinctionor higher distinction and five of them were able to publish their work inpeer-reviewed scientific journals (D9, D12, D15, D20, D25).

Currently, I amcombining my passion for teaching with my expertise in the research of closerelationships for purposes of initiating teaching and research in life-longlearning at the Oranim Academic College of Education in cooperation with theIsraeli Organization of Lifelong Learning. Having developed a curriculum forthis initiative, I now serve as the head of the continuing and life-longeducation program at Oranim Academic College.

 

My future research plans include closer investigation offamily involvement in instrumental and emotional support for older adults inthe hospital setting. I intend to launch a qualitative investigation to studythe perspectives of nursing staff, family members and patients, with the goal ofenriching society’s understanding of how the nursing staff and family memberssee their responsibility to emotionally and instrumentally support hospitalizedolder adults.

Using my experience in research about health care settings,close relationships, well-being and education, I plan to pursue research whichexplores the similarities and differences in structures, processes and theoutcomes of these systems. I also plan to initiate research into the domains ofrelationships between teachers and high school students, and how theserelationships affect student engagement and academic achievement.
