Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry

The Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry is a peer-reviewed scientific journal covering both child and adolescent psychology and psychiatry providing an interdisciplinary perspective to the multidisciplinary field of child and adolescent mental health, though publication of high-quality empirical research, clinically-relevant studies and cited research reviews and practitioner review articles. It is one of two journals of the Association for Adolescent Mental Health; the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry was first published in 1960 by the Association for Child Psychology and Psychiatry. It dropped the "Allied Disciplines" component from its title in 2004; the primary founding aim of the journal was to "bring together original papers concerned with the child, from such diverse disciplines as psychiatry, paediatrics, social case-work and sociology". The original intent was to extend the focus from the individual a characteristic feature of psychology and psychiatry practice, to the broader family and social context, recognising that development occurs in interactive social settings and that contributions from the other disciplines, including "cultural anthropology and animal behaviour", would benefit our understanding.

Further, it was recognised that the methodologies employed by the different disciplines represented by the Journal varied, ranging from those in which "a considerable degree of systematic exactitude is possible" to others in which "reliance has to be placed on the more subjective evidence of the clinician or skilled observer". Such diversity was considered and relevant and should be reflected in the Journal; as no general theory existed that would account for what was known about psycho-pathology in children and young people, as there was no agreement as to what such a theory might look like, the founding Editors asserted that the JCPP "will provide a forum in which serious contributions, inspired by any point of view, will be welcomed". The first editors were Elizabeth Irvine, a social worker, Colin Hindley, a medical practitioner turned developmental psychologist, Emanuel Miller, a child psychiatrist whose ideas profoundly shaped the aims for the new Journal; the founding editors constituted a group representing the main disciplines in what was called "child guidance", now known as child and adolescent mental health services or child and family services, in the United Kingdom National Health Service.

Contributions to the four issues of the first volume well reflect the aspirations of the founders, with different disciplines represented. A number of the papers are data-based, some "philosophical" and others descriptive, the range covering clinical, developmental and other topics. Over the early decades, developmental psychopathology, child development and the allied disciplines became differentiated, encompassing a widening diversity of topics that reflected the growing breadth and increasing depth of interest in these areas. Since the 1990s, there has been further diversification of journal content, reflecting the emergence of many new developments that have an important impact on clinical research and practice; the journal is abstracted and indexed in the following: Abstracts in Anthropology Academic Search Academic Search Alumni Edition Academic Search Elite Academic Search Premier AgeLine Database AMED: Allied & Complementary Medicine Database Biological Abstracts BIOSIS Previews Current Contents: Clinical Medicine Current Contents: Social & Behavioral Sciences Education Index/Abstracts ERIC: Educational Resources Information Center Expanded Academic ASAP InfoTrac Journal Citation Reports/Science Edition Journal Citation Reports/Social Science Edition MEDLINE/PubMed OmniFile Full Text Mega Edition Periodical Index Online Psychology & Behavioral Sciences Collection Psychology Collection PsycINFO/Psychological Abstracts PsycSCAN: Developmental Psychology PSYNDEX PubMed Dietary Supplement Subset Research Library Science Citation Index Science Citation Index Expanded SCOPUS Social Sciences Citation Index Sociological Collection In 2018, ISI Journal Citation Reports ranked the journal 2/74 in Psychology Developmental journals, 6/77 in Psychology journals, 11/142 in the category Psychiatry.

Fagor Electrodomésticos is a large domestic and commercial appliance manufacturer based in the Basque Country and run by the Mondragon Corporation. Fagor is Spain's largest consumer appliance company and the fifth largest electrical appliance company in Europe, manufacturing a wide range of domestic appliances, including washing machines and ovens. Fagor Electrodomésticos was the world's biggest industrial worker cooperative for decades, the flagship of the Mondragon Corporation, the world's largest workers' co-operative, it started in 1956 in a small workshop in Spain. From the Spanish market, it expanded internationally to North Africa and Latin America in the late 1980s. From 1996 to 2001, Fagor formed joint ventures with international companies. In 1999, Fagor acquired Wrozamet in Poland; the acquisition of Brandt Electroménager in 2005 made it the leader in household appliances in France. Among European manufacturers, it ranked fifth after Electrolux, Bosch Siemens and Merloni; the employees of the foreign acquisitions were not offered ownership.

Besides, about 15% of the workers in the parent company were temporary employees without ownership rights. In 2006, it had 8 production plants in Spain, 4 in France, one in Poland, one in Italy, 3 in China and one in Morocco), its 1,729-million-euro sales were 6% of the European market. The total workforce was 10,543 employees; the buying of Brandt and other growth was financed through borrowing as capital markets were not available. When the Spanish housing crisis struck in 2008, the main market for Fagor appliances collapsed. Increased Asian competition could not be countered in spite of austerity measures, liquidity injections and staff relocation. On October 16, 2013, Fagor Electrodomésticos filed for protection from creditors while it tried to refinance and renegotiate its €1.1 billion of debt under Spanish law, after suffering heavy losses during the European financial crisis. On November 6, 2013, Fagor Brandt, the French subsidiary of the Spanish appliance manufacturing group, which employed 1,920 people, announced its bankruptcy and was placed under receivership in early 2014, before being divested and taken over by the Algerian conglomerate Cevital Group.

Fagor Electrodomésticos announced its bankruptcy as well and has been taken over by Spanish appliance manufacturer CATA Electrodomésticos in autumn 2014, adding 155 new jobs. In late 2014, the German appliance company BSH Hausgeräte was about to purchase FagorMastercook in Poland. One of the factors in the fall of Fagor has been the human resources policy. Relatives of workers were given preference; the new workers were submitted to Taylorist methods. The disengagement led to absenteeism beyond the usual in Spanish private companies, unusually higher among the younger workers; this was paradoxical for a worker-owned company. A reverse dominance hierarchy formed and decisions like offshoring production to the cheaper wage workers were not taken by worker-owners. Mondragon Corporation comprises, 122 industrial companies, 6 financial organizations, 14 retailers, 4 research centers, 1 university, 14 insurance companies, international trade services, it has a assets of 24.72b Euro, a revenue of 12.1b Euro, a workforce of 69,000.

The corporation is divided into three main divisions: finance and industrial. Major international expansion has increased Fagor's workforce to 6,074, it has factories in Europe and Africa. It has 13 worldwide subsidiaries and sales networks in 80 countries in 5 continents; the purchase of the Brandt Group in 2005 made Fagor one of the largest appliance manufacturers in Europe. This included the brand names, SanGiorgio, De Dietrich. Fagor America makes major appliances, small appliances, cookware. 44% of Fagor's sales are international, 70% percent of which are in France, Germany, the UK, Morocco and the Czech Republic.

Bogor is a city in the West Java province, Indonesia. Located around 60 kilometers south of the national capital of Jakarta, Bogor is the 6th largest city of Jakarta metropolitan area and the 14th nationwide; the city covers an area of 118.5 km2, it had a population of 950,334 at the 2010 Census. Bogor is an important economic, scientific and tourist center, as well as a mountain resort. In the Middle Ages, the city served as the capital of Sunda Kingdom and was called Pakuan Pajajaran or Dayeuh Pakuan. During the Dutch colonial era, it was named Buitenzorg and served as the summer residence of the Governor-General of Dutch East Indies. With several hundred thousand people living on an area of about 20 km2, the central part of Bogor is one of the world's most densely populated areas; the city has a presidential palace and a botanical garden – one of the oldest and largest in the world. It bears the nickname "the Rain City", because of frequent rain showers, it nearly always rains during the dry season.

The first mentioning of a settlement at present Bogor dates to the 5th century when the area was part of Tarumanagara, one of the earliest states in Indonesian history. After a series of defeats from the neighboring Srivijaya, Tarumanagara was transformed into the Sunda Kingdom, in 669, the capital of Sunda was built between two parallel rivers, the Ciliwung and Cisadane, it was named Pakuan Pajajaran, that in old Sundanese means "a place between the parallel ", became the predecessor of the modern Bogor. Over the next several centuries, Pakuan Pajajaran become one of the largest cities in medieval Indonesia with population reaching 48,000; the name Pajajaran was used for the entire kingdom, the capital was called Pakuan. The chronicles of that time were written in Sanskrit, the language used for official and religious purposes, using the Pallava writing system, on rock stellas called prasasti; the prasasti found in and around Bogor differ in shape and text style from other Indonesian prasasti and are among the main attractions of the city.

In the 9–15th centuries, the capital was moving between Pakuan and other cities of the kingdom, returned to Pakuan by King Siliwangi on 3 June 1482 – the day of his coronation. Since 1973, this date is celebrated in Bogor as an official city holiday. In 1579, Pakuan was captured and completely destroyed by the army of Sultanate of Banten, ceasing the existence of the State of Sunda; the city remained uninhabited for decades. In the second half of the 17th century, the abandoned Pakuan as most of West Java, while formally remaining under the Sultanate of Banten passed under control of the Dutch East India Company; the formal transition occurred on 17 April 1684 by signing an agreement between the Crown Prince of Banten and the VOC. The first, temporal, colonial settlement at Pakuan was a camp of lieutenant Tanoejiwa, a Sundanese employed by the VOC, sent in 1687 to develop the area, it was damaged by the eruption on 4–5 January 1699 of the Mount Salak volcano, however the concomitant forest fires removed much forest, leaving much area for the planned rice and coffee plantations.

In a short time, several agricultural settlements appeared around Pakuan, the largest being Kampung Baru. In 1701, they were combined into an administrative district; the district was further developed during the 1703 Dutch mission headed by the Inspector General of the VOC Abraham van Riebeeck. The expedition of van Riebeeck performed a detailed study of the Pakuan ruins and described many archaeological artifacts, including prasasti, erected buildings for the VOC employees; the area attracted the Dutch by a favorable geographical position and mild climate, preferred over the hot Batavia, the administrative center of the Dutch East Indies. In 1744–1745, the residence of the Governor-General was built in Pakuan, hosting the government during the summer. In 1746, by the order of the Governor-General Gustaaf Willem van Imhoff, the Palace, a nearby Dutch settlement and nine native settlements were merged into an administrative division named Buitenzorg Around the same time, the first reference to Bogor as the local name of the city was documented.

This name became used for the whole city as the local alternative to Buitenzorg. This name is believed to originate from the Javanese word bogor meaning sugar palm, still used in the Indonesian language. Alternative origins are the old-Javanese word bhagar, or the misspelling of "Buitenzorg" by the local residents; the city grew in the late 18th – early 19th centuries. This growth was stimulated by the temporary occupation of the Dutch East Indies by the United Kingdom in 1811–1815 – the British landed on Java and other Sunda Islands to prevent their capture by Napoleonic France which conquered the Netherlands; the head of the British administration Stamford Raffles moved the administrative ce
