African American Msm And Hiv/Aids – Why It’S Not Just Behavior: A Literature Review, Examining The Institutional And Structural Causes Of Hiv/Aids Prevalence Among African American Msm, Situated By Social Theories, Chris Devaun R Parker

Student Research Awards

This literature review examines existing research, through the lens of social science theories, and as an alternative to individual behavior change models, to explain how structural and institutional elements can and do influence the disparate prevalence of HIV among AA MSM. Using the framework of syndemic theory, it highlights the structural elements and the confluence of multiple epidemics that compound to affect the prospect of delimiting the burden of the virus on this specific subgroup. For the sake of clearer sociopolitical context, it also uses critical race theory to highlight how the changing demography and political climate of the US ...


Bullying As A Source Of Posttraumatic Growth In Lesbian, Gay, And Bisexual Individuals, Jamie M. Tombari Jan 2017

Bullying As A Source Of Posttraumatic Growth In Lesbian, Gay, And Bisexual Individuals, Jamie M. Tombari

Student Research Awards

Lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) individuals are at high risk for bullying. Research suggests that experiencing discrimination or a hate crime based on sexual orientation can have a severe negative impact on LGB individuals. Indeed, these experiences have been shown to lead to trauma among LGB individuals. However, recent research has explored the phenomena of posttraumatic growth—positive psychological change following a trauma (PTG)—to occur. The present research explores the potential factors that predict PTG among bullied LGB individuals. One hundred thirty-nine participants identifying as lesbian, gay, or bisexual who indicated that they had been bullied completed a series ...

The Potential Of Ecofeminism To Develop ‘Deep’ Sustainability Competencies For Education For Sustainable Development, Susan V. Iverson Oct 2015

The Potential Of Ecofeminism To Develop ‘Deep’ Sustainability Competencies For Education For Sustainable Development, Susan V. Iverson

The Seneca Falls Dialogues Journal

Education for sustainable development (ESD) has gained much currency in the literature; yet, less attention has been given to understanding or defining learning outcomes, or rather, what competencies for sustainability should students develop and be able to demonstrate. In this position paper, I ask (and answer) the question, “What might be gained by bringing a feminist lens, and specifically an ecofeminist perspective, to ESD?” I argue that infusing ecofeminism into ESD can develop students’ sustainability competence beyond individual level change to thinking and acting systemically; it can develop the critical consciousness, activist skills, and deeper sustainability knowledge needed to foster ...


Adolescent Perceptions Of "Healthy" Dating Relationships: Implications For Programming, Cassandra M. Fleck Oct 2014

Adolescent Perceptions Of "Healthy" Dating Relationships: Implications For Programming, Cassandra M. Fleck

Counselor Education Master's Theses

Adolescence is a time of important developmental changes and the formation of relationships outside of the family. While most experiences children have with dating relationships are positive toward their developmental growth, there is the potential for unhealthy or abusive relationships. Adolescent dating violence (ADV) is a significant public health issue. Nearly 9% of teenagers experiencing physical violence by the time they turn 18 (CDC, 2014). It is possible that the high prevalence of ADV is a result of lack of definitions of healthy and unhealthy relationships and ambiguity that exists within teen relationships. This study examines qualitative interviews with adolescents ...


Ethnocentrism And Off Reservation Indian Boarding Schools, Nicholas C. Davidson Aug 2014

Ethnocentrism And Off Reservation Indian Boarding Schools, Nicholas C. Davidson

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

Ethnocentrism is a force to be reckoned with. The idea that one’s culture is morally and intellectually superior to another is a concept that has followed expanding civilizations for ages. The saga of the United States is no different. A society in a stage of expansion may think from a place of grandeur, and apply their cultural values to conquered people. This research will focus on three categories that will illustrate a holistic mindset of ethnocentrism from the point of view of the expanding United States to the original inhabitants of the continent. First, an exploration of federal government ...

This report is an initial attempt to assess the Civic Health of The College at Brockport. By “Civic Health” we mean the civic, social and political strength of a community.

Social strength captures the social ties, networks, level of trust, and shared understanding in a community. Political strength gauges the extent of citizens’ engagement with government. In this first Civic Health Report we present data addressing most, but not all, aspects of Civic Health. We focus on ...


The Effectiveness Of A Comprehensive Anti-Bullying Program In Reducing Reported Bullying Behaviors, Lindsay Wold Lazenby Aug 2009

The Effectiveness Of A Comprehensive Anti-Bullying Program In Reducing Reported Bullying Behaviors, Lindsay Wold Lazenby

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

Adolescence is characterized as a time of great personal upheaval wherein children experience significant physical, emotional, and social changes. As they begin to seek peer approval or try to resist peer rejection, many adolescents will do almost anything to fit in with a group, even if that means remaining silent as their peers are bullied. This research project discusses the ongoing battle to reclaim the academic landscape of American schools from various types of bullying behaviors by the use of school-wide, comprehensive anti-bullying initiatives. It highlights the impact a national anti-bullying program can have on the school environment and student ...
