    Using the social robot probo as a social story telling agent for children with ASD.Bram Vanderborght, Ramona Simut, Jelle Saldien, Cristina Pop, Alina S. Rusu, Sebastian Pintea, Dirk Lefeber & Daniel O. David - 2012 - Interaction Studies 13 (3):348-372.
    This paper aims to study the role of the social robot Probo in providing assistance to a therapist for robot assisted therapy (RAT) with autistic children. Children with autism have difficulties with social interaction and several studies indicate that they show preference toward interaction with objects, such as computers and robots, rather than with humans. In 1991, Carol Gray developed Social Stories, an intervention tool aimed to increase children's social skills. Social stories are short scenarios written or tailored for autistic (...)

  2. Children with autism social engagement in interaction with Nao, an imitative robot: A series of single case experiments.Adriana Tapus, Andreea Peca, Amir Aly, Cristina Pop, Lavinia Jisa, Sebastian Pintea, Alina S. Rusu & Daniel O. David - 2012 - Interaction Studies 13 (3):315-347.
    This paper presents a series of 4 single subject experiments aimed to investigate whether children with autism show more social engagement when interacting with the Nao robot, compared to a human partner in a motor imitation task. The Nao robot imitates gross arm movements of the child in real-time. Different behavioral criteria (i.e. eye gaze, gaze shifting, free initiations and prompted initiations of arm movements, and smile/laughter) were analyzed based on the video data of the interaction. The results are mixed (...)

The results are mixed and suggest a high variability in reactions to the Nao robot. The results are as (...)

    The Mediation Effect of Response Expectancies between Religious Coping and Non-Volitional Responses in Patients with Breast Cancer.Aurelian I. Bizo, Adrian N. Opre & Alina S. Rusu - 2014 - Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies 13 (39):181-202.
    Even though there are several studies showing a clear connection between religious coping and distress, only few of them illustrate models of mediation between religious coping and its psychological effects. In this paper we investigate the mediation effect that response expectancies have in the relation between religious coping and non-volitional responses . The study was made on 38 females diagnosed with breast cancer and which were following a treatment with radiotherapy sessions. The results confirmed the presence of a mediation effect (...)

    Interaction with a Therapy Dog Enhances the Effects of Social Story Method in Autistic Children.Andreea A. Grigore & Alina S. Rusu - 2014 - Society and Animals 22 (3):241-261.
    This study explored the effects of a combination between two methods that have proved to enhance the social abilities of autistic children—Social Story and Animal Assisted Therapy. The main hypothesis of this investigation was that a naturally enriched social environment improves the effectiveness of Social Story method. Two social skills were targeted: the ability to greet a social partner and the ability to introduce oneself to a social partner, by using a standard single-subject research design. Three preschool autistic children were (...)
