    Abstract PDF
    In this study, 12,795 NPOs, including both registered and terminated in the Ministry of the Interior and Safety (MOIS), were surveyed to reorganize the current status of Non-Profit Organizations. This study was conducted to analyze the past and present of NPOs and to be used as policy data for the revitalization of NPOs. This study analyzed NPO’s current status into three categories: basic information, business contents, and organizational status. First, the basic information status was subdivided into the status by detailed types, regions, cities, counties, districts, sub-ministerial departments, organizational types, authoritative agencies, and established years. The status of the business contents was divided and analyzed as the business subject, purpose, area and organization type by items. In addition, the organization status included the relevant agencies and supporting entities, support methods, operation status, abolition year, certification year, support year, relevant laws, establishment foundation law and salary payment. The workforce status and structure included the number of employees, members, number of volunteers, other personnel, average age, and average education. Finally, the decision-making structure was analyzed by dividing details into general meetings, boards of directors, operating boards, other meetings and corporate governance. As a result, we found that the majority of NPOs had high operating rates, and NPOs were heavily distributed around the Seoul metropolitan area, Gyeonggi, and North Jeolla Province. In addition, social welfare was concentrated in the business area and type of non-profit civic groups, and it was difficult to receive support regardless of region, type of organization, year of establishment, or type of detail as a support method. Therefore, it is important to find a way for NPOs to be established in various types and fields of business in the future, and above all, it will be important to find ways to increase the support method and support ratio so that NPOs can perform their roles well.

    Nara Kim , Kim Yong Kweon | 2019, 3(2) | pp.45~55 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study was to determine the frequency with which exercise specialist address certain psychological issues related to injury and non-injury related psychological issues with their athletes or patients, their attitude to deal with psychological issues, and referral patterns to other mental health professionals. A hundred clinical exercise specialists who educate exercise rehabilitation of the injured athletes were participated and data from 60 persons were analyzed. Statistical analyses were performed using SPSS (version 18.0 for windows). Exercise specialist (ES) group reported frequently encountering psychological issues more related to injury than unrelated to injury in athletes and patients. Furthermore, ES believed it was their role to address injury more than non-injury-related psychological issues with athletes and patients. Less experienced ES reported slightly less competent and much less comfortable with psychological skills than more experienced ES. The current findings suggest that ES encounter and discuss psychological issues during rehabilitation frequently. Clinical implications regarding the dealing with psychological issues during the rehabilitation were discussed.

    Relationship of Critical Thinking Disposition, Self-Esteem and Self-Efficacy among Dental Hygiene Majors

    So-Yeon You , Jong-Hwa Jang | 2019, 3(2) | pp.69~78 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study is to investigate critical thinking disposition, self-esteem, and self-efficacy among dental hygiene majors to determine the degree of relevance among the three factors. From Oct. 15 to Dec. 6, 2012, a total of 935 students from five three-year universities and six four-year colleges nationwide were conducted. A structured questionnaire was used to conduct correlation and regression analysis on the degree and mutual relevance among critical thinking disposition, self-esteem, and self-efficacy. When measuring the degree of critical thinking disposition, self-esteem, and self-efficacy, the results showed that the score was 3.40 for critical thinking disposition, 3.53 for self-esteem and 3.03 for self-efficacy. Critical thinking disposition is composed of seven factors: intellectual passion/interest, prudence, self-confidence (A), systemicity, intellectual fairness, sound skepticism, and objectivity, and significant influencing factors were found to be self-regulation efficacy among self-esteem and self-efficacy. Factors that were significant for self-esteem included confidence (A), intellectual passion/interest, systemicity in critical thinking disposition and confidence (B) and self-regulation efficacy in self-efficacy. Self-efficacy was classified into three factors: confidence (B), self-regulation efficacy, and task difficulty preference, and the significant factors of influence were self-esteem, systemicity, confidence (A), intellectual passion/interest, and sound skepticism in critical thinking disposition. The relevance between critical thinking disposition, self-esteem, and self-efficacy showed a positive correlation among all items except for sound skepticism and confidence (B). From the above results, critical thinking disposition, self-esteem, and self-efficacy were significantly related to each other, and it is expected that they will be used as basic data for the development of the dental hygiene curriculum where each factor can be systematically and continuously enhanced.

    A Study on the Awareness of Medical and Non-medical Personnel on the Inclusion of Dental Hygienists in the Category of Medical Personnel

    Yu-Ri Park , Jae-Eun Park , Hae-Mi Yang and 4 other persons | 2019, 3(2) | pp.79~89 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The study conducted a survey of medical and non-medical personnel living in Seoul and Gyeonggi province for about two months from April to June 2018 to explore ways to improve people's awareness on the need to include dental hygienists in the category of medical personnel and obtained the following results. Looking at the factors that affect the changes that would be made to the dental hygienists if they were to be included in the category of medical personnel, we found that people who thought it was appropriate or fair for dental hygienists to be included as medical personnel (p<0.001) and those who had a high opinion on the role of dental hygienists (p<0.001) tended to have a positive awareness on the changes that would occur after the inclusion of dental hygienists as medical personnel. Based on the above results, it is believed that the government needs to raise people's awareness on the role of dental hygienists and actively inform the public of the need for dental hygienists to be classified as healthcare professionals.

    Augmented Reality-based Speech-Language Therapy for Individuals with Communication Disorders: Current Evidence, Limitations, and Benefits

    Park, Hee-June , Kwon, Soon-Bok | 2019, 3(2) | pp.91~102 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This study aimed to review currently available research on augmented reality (AR) based speech-language therapy for individuals with communication disorders. AR is generally referred to as a system in which the user has a direct view of their environment and where a specially constructed device allows additional information or graphical elements to be blended with the real environment in the form of an overlay. AR-based speech-language therapy refers to speech-language therapy delivered via computer-simulation technology to improve speech and language abilities for children and adults with communication disorders. In addition, this paper addressed limitations of previous studies and benefits of AR-based speech-language therapy. Recent Findings Recent research reports suggest that AR-based speech-language therapy is a viable option for treating children and adults with speech-language disorders. However, most of the research studies were conducted without a rigorous experimental design. Additionally, the quality of technology is difficult to assess and application to real clinical practice is currently lacking. Future studies should be conducted with a rigorous experimental design and more advanced technology. Summary This paper has reviewed current evidence related to the effectiveness of AR-based speech-language intervention for children and adults with speech-language impairment. This paper discussed limitations of the current research and benefits of AR-based speech-language therapy
