Ziel dieser Arbeit ist es, die beiden familienstrukturerfassenden Verfahren „Familiensystemtest“ (FAST) von Gehring (1998) und „Family Adaptability and Cohesion Scale“ (FACES IV) von Olson (2003) miteinander zu vergleichen. Da beide Verfahren die Kohäsion für eine zentrale Dimension bei der Gesunderhaltung von Familien halten, soll dieses Konzept besonders in der Aufmerksamkeit der Untersuchung stehen. Die beiden Autoren treffen unterschiedliche Annahmen über das Maß, in dem Nähe, Zuwendung und Bindungsverhalten in Familien unterstützend und förderlich sind und ob es ein „Zuviel“ an familiärer Kohäsion geben kann. In dieser Arbeit nun sollen die beiden familienstrukturerfassenden Verfahren jeweils anhand einer Stichprobe aus dem klinischen und aus dem nichtklinischen Bereich miteinander verglichen werden. Im ersten Teil erläutern wir die theoretischen Grundlagen des Untersuchungsgegenstandes. Es erfolgt eine Definition und Abgrenzung der Begriffe der Grenzen in Familien, der Kohäsion, der Hierarchie und der Flexibilität. Außerdem werden diagnostische Möglichkeiten dieser Familienstrukturen vorgestellt.

During the last 30 years, face recognition and related problems such as face detection/tracking and facial expression recognition have attracted researchers from both the engineering and psychology communities. In addition, extensive research has been carried out to study hand and body gestures. The understanding of how humans perceive these important cues has significant scientific value and extensive applications. For example, human-computer interaction, visual surveillance, and smart video indexing are active application areas. Aiming towards putting such amazing perception capability onto computer systems, researchers have made substantial progress. However, technological challenges still exist in many aspects. Following a format similar to the IEEE International Workshop on Analysis and Modeling of Faces and Gestures (AMFG) 2003, this one-day workshop (AMFG 2005) provided a focused international forum to bring together well-known researchers and research groups to review the status of recognition, analysis and modeling of faces and gestures, to discuss the challenges that we are facing, and to explore future directions. Overall, 30 papers were selected from 90 submitted manuscripts. The topics of these papers range from feature representation, robust recognition, learning, and 3D modeling to psychology. In addition, two invited talks were given, by Prof. Kanade and Dr. Phillips. The technical program was organized into four oral sessions and two poster sessions. This workshop would not have been possible without the timely reviews provided by the members of the Technical Program Committee under a tight schedule.

The past few years have witnessed rapid scienti?c and technological devel- ments in human-centered, seamless computing environments, interfaces, de- ces, and systems with applications ranging from business and communication to entertainment and learning. These developments are collectively best charac- rized as Active Media Technology (AMT), a new area of information technology and computer science that emphasizes the proactive, seamless roles of interfaces and systems as well as new digital media in all aspects of human life. This - lume contains the papers presented at the Sixth International Computer Science Conference: Active Media Technology (AMT 2001), the ?rst conference of its kind, capturing the state of research and development in AMT and the latest architectures, prototypes, tools, and ?elded systems that demonstrate or enable AMT. The volume is organized into the following eight parts: I. Smart Digital - dia; II. Web Personalization; III. Active Interfaces; IV. Autonomous Agent - proaches; V. Facial Image Processing; VI. AMT-Supported Commerce, Business, Learning, and Health Care; VII. Tools and Techniques; and VIII. Algorithms.

Over the past twenty-five years, the presidency of Yeshiva University has been a mighty pulpit from which Dr. Norman Lamm has addressed many of the critical issues that have faced world Jewry and confronted Modern Orthodoxy. As spokesman for the institution that he leads, the movement he champions, and the Jewish people he loves, Dr. Lamm has fearlessly addressed such issues as the possibilities for faith and real religious commitment in the modern world: unity within a fragmented and contentious Jewish community, morality within a libertine contemporary society, and the prospect for Zionism and Israel within the world of nations. He has defined the parameters and structured the vision of Modern Orthodoxy as a vibrant and attractive religious phenomenon that combines fidelity to Jewish tradition while embracing the modern world of knowledge and culture, with tolerance for all Jews and civility toward all humankind. This is the definitive work on modern orthodoxy.
