Peer Pressure Keeps Kids Active And Alive | SecureTeen, 8 Jan 2015 [cached]
Sabina Gesell, a research assistant professor in pediatrics at the Vanderbilt School of Medicine, and her fellow researchers published their reports in the journal Pediatric, on the positive impact of peer pressure on children. The scientists studied a network of friends falling in the age group of 5 to 12 and the study was conducted on these children in an after-school program. One of the primary reasons for conducting this study was to record muscle movements of kids on a pedometer-like device, and through this process the researchers kept track of the physical activity of kids over a period of 12 weeks.
Gesell and her colleagues made sure that the kids who were put under observation did not know each other well for the sole reason that it would help the researchers track the social habits of kids by following a credible system.
"We see evidence that the children are mirroring, emulating or adjusting to be similar to their friends," says Gesell.
Since the entire research was conducted on the topic of obesity and physical activity among children, Gesell had this to say about the positive influence of a peer group on a child, "This is a novel approach to obesity prevention ... None of the approaches to combating obesity are really working now, and we need a new approach.

"I can see how on the surface it can appear to be all fun and games, especially if it's packaged as a birthday party, but we do need to be careful about the message we're sending," says Sabina Gesell, a research coordinator for Vanderbilt University's Pediatrics Department.
Vanderbilt's Gesell is afraid that exposure to beauty treatments at too young an age pushes girls to be older before their time.
"The key message that children need to receive at any age is that they are whole and beautiful as they are," Gesell says."It's not their physical appearance that makes them whole and beautiful, it's who they are as an individual.It's their character traits, accomplishments and efforts."
Research shows that children as young as 4 are affected by our appearance-obsessed culture, Gesell says.Pressure from parents and peers can result in negative body image and low self-esteem, she says.

Yahoo! - The Key To Nursing Home Satisfaction May Be Found In Resident Involvement, 22 July 2002 [cached]
"While other areas of care such as quality of food have lower scores, facilities that focus on actively involving residents in their own care may see higher rates of overall satisfaction," said Sabina Gesell, Ph.D., Research Product Manager for Press Ganey."Residents want providers to take interest in their suggestions for care.They want to be more informed, to know what to expect and why,"
The Press Ganey studies specify that the top satisfaction indicators and likelihood to recommend revolve around explanation of care, as well as responsiveness and receptivity to resident ideas.Nursing Home Priority Index
"When decisions are being made for them, without their consultation, residents may feel uncomfortable interjecting," asserts Gesell."They are less likely to be afraid if they sense that their ideas are encouraged, respected, and requested."
Facilities that encourage resident feedback may also see unparalleled success in the industry, as management receptivity to ideas correlated number one with resident likelihood to recommend.Irwin Press, Ph.D., and Chairman of Press Ganey Associates, says, "Word of mouth is very powerful.Facilities become strong competitors for the industry market share when they can boast high levels of resident satisfaction."
"Feedback from the residents and their families provides valuable insight into the customer's perception of care, and allows facilities to serve them better," says Gesell."The key is to foster an environment where customers feel comfortable offering both positive and negative feedback."
