In Advances in Psychology Research. Volume 132, the authors seek to explore relatives’ beliefs about family therapy in the long term concerning schizophrenia, as relatives’ opinions about schizophrenia may influence expressed emotions, family burden and patients’ adherence to Behavioural Family Intervention Therapies, or FITs. Continuing, this compilation provides a summary of the existing literature on sex differences in obesity and bariatric surgery population. The authors analyze the different ontological perspectives for analyzing the relationship between self and others within psychology and sociology, the different existing notions of the psychosocial as a category for analyzing the I-Other relation, the way in which the I-Other relation is usually analyzed in the fields of CGC and WOP, a psychosocial proposal for analyzing the I-Other relation based on social constructionism, and possible theoretical and practical implications of a psychosocial proposal for understanding the reality for the field of CGC and for the field of WOP. A chapter is included that reviews cross-sectional, longitudinal, cross-sequential, qualitative, quantitative, and mixed-methods research designs. These studies are drawn from various disciplines, such as psychology, sociology, media and communication studies, social work, computer science, and education. Following this, conceptual clarification of protection theory is provided along with evidence-based orientations for intervention. The role of mindfulness as a strategy for adaptive self-regulation of emotional dysregulation and impulsivity, specifically in Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and Bipolar Disorder (BD), is analyzed. In conclusion, exploratory research conducted in three universities of Delhi – University ‘X’, University ‘Y’ and University ‘Z’ – is presented, with the goal of determining the scope, incidence, nature and kind of various types of sexual harassment behaviors experienced by four groups of women in the age group of 18 to 65.
