I conduct a bibliometric analysis of 219 peer-reviewed articles specific to research conducted in Canada. The articles are extracted from EBSCO using the key words “mental health” and “workplace” and published between the years 2000 and 2020. A qualitative research technique – ‘co-occurrence of key words’ is used to identify the most relevant key words in the theoretical corpus of 219 articles. Most frequently occurring words are clustered together forming a research theme. Five research themes- healthcare management, organizational context and support, psychological issues, methodology &amp; research design, and Participants are identified. This research makes a significant academic contribution in providing directions for future research on the topic of mental health in organizations. From the practitioner viewpoint, it draws the attention of healthcare professionals to some of the more recent practices in organizations that address the important issue of mental health.</p> Ravikiran Dwivedula Copyright (c) 2021 European Journal of Behavioral Sciences Wed, 30 Dec 2020 00:00:00 +0000 Joining Militia; Understanding the Drivers of Militia Participation in Counterinsurgency Operation in Yobe State, Nigeria <p>The Nigeria government has been fighting a protracted insurgency by Boko Haram since 2009. Despite the concerted multifaceted counterinsurgency approach, the insurgent sustained its violence with impunity. However, the participation of militia to support the government significantly suppressed the insurgent hostilities, reduced both attack frequencies and fatalities. Even though the militias succeed in the operation, but what motivates them to engage in the militia is not address. This article, therefore, drawing data from interviews and field observations, this study investigated the drivers of the militias in Yobe State. The case study is at Geidam involving 15 participants from three groups that include the militia participants, government officials, and community leaders. The find revealed poverty and unemployment are the key drivers of militias' participation in the operation. However, the study recommends that Nigeria and Yobe State governments should regulate the militia activities to avoid excessiveness. Nigeria's government should re-strategize its counterinsurgency campaign toward the people-centered operation. Others are the recruitment of more state counterinsurgent forces by the government.</p> Modu Lawan Gana Copyright (c) 2021 European Journal of Behavioral Sciences Wed, 30 Dec 2020 00:00:00 +0000 Turkish Public Perceptions About Oman <p>Oman has long lasting peaceful relations with its neighbours and the world. It is a small size Arabian Gulf state with very rich natural resources. Relations between Oman and Turkey was very pleasant in 15-19<sup>th</sup> centuries. A century of interrupted relations has started to resurrect in the recent years with the new economic, political treaties and socio-cultural relations between two nations. Turkey and its policies, TV serials, and political leaders are very well known in Oman, whereas Oman is not very familiar to the Turkish people. In this research, to understand the level of Oman’s image in Turkey, a survey was orchestrated on more than 500 respondents and striking findings demonstrate that Oman is not well-known well in Turkey. The survey was conducted physically in the shopping malls in Istanbul and virtually via online questionnaire. Social representation of the survey overlaps on the Turkish social facts. In comparison with Europeans and Asians, the Turkish public knows Oman more than double of the world public opinion. For example, the location of Oman is known 51.9% in Turkey, but 38.2% in the world; the existence of general elections in Oman is known in Turkey on the level of 32.7%, whereas in Europe 16.3%. This study, as a primary resource, shares and interprets the result of conducted survey and then suggests some policy alternatives to Oman to be known better in Turkey and the world as a public diplomacy tool.</p> Cuneyt Yenigun, Saranjam Baig Copyright (c) 2021 European Journal of Behavioral Sciences Wed, 30 Dec 2020 00:00:00 +0000 The Relationship among Indonesian Women Self-Esteem with Breast Cancer Beliefs Screening: Attitude, Knowledge, and Barriers to Mammographic <p>Breast cancer is one of the prevalent non-communicable diseases in developed and under-developed countries, especially Indonesia.
