The Relationship Between Power Distance and Organizational Silence in Organizations: A Field Research
The distance of power, which Geert Hofstede treats as a cultural dimension and expresses the unfair distribution of power, has a great importance in the relations between individuals at the social organizational level. The farther the distance between the powers causes the stronger to have more control over the behaviors and decisions of the less powerful individuals. Organizational silence behavior, which means that employees do not express their opinions about organizational problems deliberately, is discussed in three dimensions as Acquiescent Silence, Prosocial Silence and Defensive Silence. In this study, it is aimed to empirically examine the effect of power distance on employee’s behavior of organizational silence. For this reason, it is seen that there is a positive relationship between power distance and organizational silence according to the results of the study, which was conducted in the main universe of university employees, where the study, administrative and academic employees were together.

Ethnographic Research of Demand Factors for Psychological Counseling Services
Demand will increase when the price of a good falls according to the law of supply and demand. However, factors other than the price play an important role in service demand. Notably, the quality of professional services (i.e., legal, financial) varies and cannot be measured in advance. In the article, the demand factors of psychological counseling services as a professional service are examined, and strategies to be followed in entering the market are determined. The demand factors for psychological service are revealed by ethnographic research, which is a challenging subject due to the sensitive issues but offers advantages in showing the selection process in detail. In ethnographic studies, real events and circumstances of people are examined. With a semi-structured interview, 7 counselees were asked to explain in detail the process they went through. The user's behaviors cannot be understood in depth with questionnaires, focus groups, and research reports, which are other qualitative and quantitative methods. It is examined how the clients scan psychologists when they think of receiving psychological services and how they decide to continue and quit. The most crucial factor in demand in psychological service is the reference. Demand in the sector depends on the environmental aspect. Public relations management, such as advertisement and information, does not work. In addition to being a reference to their current counselors, the institution where the psychologist works can be effective. Every satisfied client folds up to bring new clients. The counselee emotionally attaches to the psychology counselor and never thinks to change. Reasons for quitting psychological counseling service are recovery, change of location, financial burden, and attempting to stand alone. It is important that a new psychological counselor should provide good service to existing counselees and start in a reputable institution. Negative feelings before counseling vary from person to person. The most critical change gained after psychological counseling is the evolution of the way of thinking. They gain the ability to comment differently on the same event. The article also discusses prejudices toward seeking psychological services in Turkey.
