 The Development and Standardization of a Spanish Version of the Washington Psychosocial Seizure Inventory.

 Vincenza A. Tiberia1,*, Terry Froman2Article first published online: 5 NOV 2007Keywords:Epilepsy;Psychosocial;Cross-cultural;TestingSummary: The Washington Psychosocial Seizure Inventory (WPSI) was translated from English into Spanish, reviewed by a bilingual panel, and then standardized on 107 Spanish-speakers and 45 bilinguals in Miami, Florida. The 152 subjects were active clients of the Epilepsy Foundation of South Florida. Subjects were assigned to one of three treatment groups: Monolingual (Spanish WPSI only), Bilingual Monolingual (Spanish WPSI only), Bilingual (Spanish WPSI first), or Bilingual (English WPSI first). All three groups were given two administrations of the WPSI at least 30 days apart. Resulting data were submitted to measures of split-half reliability, test-retest reliability, and concurrent validity. The psychosocial scales were found to be internally consistent and showed stability across administrations with a marked similarity between the Spanish and English forms. The concurrent validity of the Spanish scales was established at the 0.01 level of significance or better. It was concluded that the Spanish WPSI was statistically comparable to the original English language version, thus establishing a basis for its usage in the psychological assessment of Spanish-speaking epileptics throughout the world.

  Archetypes: Toward a Jungian Anthropology of Consciousness.

Charles D. Laughlin & Vincenza A. Tiberia (2012). Archetypes: Toward a Jungian Anthropology of   Consciousness. Anthropology of Consciousness 23 (2):127-157.

Authors:  Charles D. Laughlin, Vincenza A. Tiberia

It is very curious that C.G. Jung has had so little influence upon the anthropology of consciousness. In this paper, the reasons for this oversight are given. The archetypal psychology of Jung is summarized and shown to be more complex and useful than extreme constructivist accounts would acknowledge. Jung's thinking about consciousness fits very well with a modern neuroscience view of the psyche and acts as a corrective to relativist notions of consciousness and its relation to the self.


Jungian Archetypal Themes in Cross-Cultural Dream Symbolism

 Unpublished Doctoral Dissertation, School Of Human Behavior, USIU, San Diego, I February 1981

 Authors: Dr. Vincenza Tiberia, MS.Ed., Ph.D.

 Original contribution to the field of Jungian analytical psychology provides empirical validation for the cross-cultural existence of common archetypal themes. Data from 300 different societies in the Human Relations Area Files were perused to collect sixty-two archetypal dreams from forty-three different cultures over seven world areas. Five archetypes were isolated, two of which had not been previously described by Jung, 'The Ancestor Archetype' and 'Losing Teeth'.,5&hl=en
