The teacher and the gifted student: a situation at the border between the atypical manifestation of the student and the standardized requirements of the school
Gabriel Albu

In Romania, within the current context of education reform (whose too frequent and incoherent changes create a feeling of uncertainty and anguish among the large majority of teachers), the gifted student is almost neglected. Also, in their daily activity, preoccupied with (total) quality management, with educational management, time and material resources management, finances and project management, with truancy issues and school violence and what not, policy makers and teachers are left with very little time and energy to deal with this special category of students. It is necessary to design a training program to move from a holistic pedagogy, suited for collectivities, to one of exceptions and excellence. Once acquired, it will prepare the teacher mentally and attitudinally to recognize the gifted student (in the large mass of students), to know how to work with him, to advise him and prepare him for the time when, after graduation, he will enter life, so that his exceptional potential would not go to waste in the minor register of existence.

Teachers’ Training Department, Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, 15, C-tin Daicoviciu street, Cluj-Napoca, Romania
Teachers’ cross competences are the concern of proposed training programs and target leadership, organization, control and evaluation, participation, personal development, team work and conflict resolution and negotiation. For teachers in particular skill areas such as IT, implementation of projects
and labor laws are targeted, because initial training in the Romanian educational system does not provide a solid base for teachers who do not have any other choice but to consolidate these issues through continuing education. Trends in teacher training are geared towards enhancing initial training and a diverse offering for continuous development is required so as to cover the entire range of cross competences.

We observed that our students, future teachers, described the ideal pupil starting from their own profile as pupil. Surprisingly, we also noticed that our subjects indicated a relatively similar profile both for ideal teacher (well trained, emphatic, creative, and communicative) and for ideal pupil (eager for
knowledge, sympathetic, creative and open to communication).
Keywords: ideal profile; teacher; student / pupil; values

Stoic therapy: mode of successful application
Emil Stan
Petroleum-Gas University of Ploiesti, Bucuresti Blvd., 39, Ploiesti, 100680, Romania
This study makes actual a meaning of philosophy overlooked by academic philosophical disciplines: philosophy is the art to live a better life. In other words, philosophy has important “practical” valences. In this light, philosophy is, on the one hand, a tool for analyzing the individual’s lifestyle and, on the
other hand, a therapy, in the true sense of the term, targeted on the reorientation of this lifestyle. Our demonstration resorts, as an example, to the Stoicism practiced by the ancient Greeks (Zeno, Chrysippus etc.).

This study has been conducted with the aim of examining the effectiveness of sandplay therapy in reducing symptoms of separation anxiety in children 5 to 7 years old. The present study is a quasiexperimental with the pretest-posttest control group design. Statistical population of the study included all the 5 to 7 years old children suffering from separation anxiety disorder who went to psychiatry clinics in Tehran in 2014. Sample size of the study was comprised of 30 participants who were selected through random sampling and were selectively divided into two groups (15 persons in experimental group and 15 persons in control group); but control group was waiting for treatment. Before and after 10 treatment sessions, all the participants were tested by using abnormal Child Symptom Inventory-4 (CSI-4), parent checklist. Besides, participants received psychiatrist’s diagnosis of the aforementioned disorder. The CSI-4 is a behavior rating scale whose items correspond to the symptoms of disorders defined by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (4th edition). The validity of this scale has been approved of by the specialists of American Psychological Association (APA). The reliability of this inventory has been 0.78 through Cronbach’s alpha. Analysis of the data obtained from administrating CSI-4 was carried out by using SPSS software in two descriptive (frequency distribution table, mean, variance and standard deviation) and inferential (covariance) sections. Results obtained from covariance analysis indicated that sandplay therapy reduces separation anxiety disorder in posttest. Therefore, the findings revealed that sandplay therapy can be effective in reducing symptoms of separation anxiety disorder.

Alina Margarițoiu
Educational Sciences Department, Petroleum-Gas University, Bd. Bucuresti, 39, Ploiesti, 100680, Romania
This paper contains a preliminary study that explores the perception of speech and language therapists from special schools, Prahova County, towards computer-based therapy. Using documents’ analyse and individualised interview, we have reached to the conclusion that all investigated speech and language therapists know the advantages and disadvantages of computer-based therapy, but they are used on an average level, more for documentation purposes than to correct speech activities or reduce language disorders of children with disabilities. More, they are using in an overwhelming proportion computer programs especially in a demonstrative purpose (in order to obtain first didactic degree) and less in current practice.
Keywords: speech and language therapists, computer-based therapy
