Flourishing After Sexual Assault: An Examination Of Self-Compassion In Women, Jessica E. Schindler Jan 2021

Flourishing After Sexual Assault: An Examination Of Self-Compassion In Women, Jessica E. Schindler

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Sexual assault is a serious and increasing public health concern, which has spurred recent development of the #metoo movement (Miller, 2017; Sigurdsson, 2018). Much of the current literature and treatment emphasis focuses on how to bring survivors of sexual assault back to baseline functioning. This exclusive focus on stability models often neglects pathways by which survivors thrive and flourish following experiences with sexual violence. It is important to consider how sexual assault experiences relate to flourishing efforts. Self-compassion, or the ability to be open and non-judgmental about one’s own suffering and treat oneself with kindness in the face of ...


Perceptions Of Child Sexual Abuse: The Effects Of Perpetrator Age, Rural Status, And Rape Myth Acceptance, Kalynn C. Gruenfelder Jan 2021

Perceptions Of Child Sexual Abuse: The Effects Of Perpetrator Age, Rural Status, And Rape Myth Acceptance, Kalynn C. Gruenfelder

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Child sexual abuse (CSA) is a global issue, affecting many children in the short- and long-term. Despite the high prevalence of CSA, factors affecting adults’ perceptions of CSA are still in question. Research focuses on CSA committed by adults, but there is disproportionately less research examining perceptions of CSA committed by juveniles. Research shows a higher incidence of juvenile-perpetrated CSA than adult-perpetrated CSA in the lifetime of 17-year-olds (Finkelhor, Shattuck, Turner, & Hamby, 2014). The current study aimed to fill the gaps in the literature concerning adult perceptions of CSA cases considering victim and perpetrator characteristics and rape myth acceptance. More ...


Effects Of An Educational Intervention On Students’ Knowledge And Attitude Towards Working With Older Adults, Johnna L. Kelley Jan 2021

Effects Of An Educational Intervention On Students’ Knowledge And Attitude Towards Working With Older Adults, Johnna L. Kelley

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Many individuals report reservations about working with an older adult population. A potential factor that may influence this is openness to experience. Additionally, research shows that educational interventions are effective in increasing individuals’ level of knowledge on various topics including older adults and aging. This increased level of knowledge contributes to a higher level of willingness to work with an older adult population. In order to support and extend the existing literature on this topic, we examined the effect of a short-term education session on undergraduate students’ willingness to work with older adults in a variety of positions and settings ...

The Culture Code: The Secrets Of Highly Successful Groups (Book Review), Lucero A. Aradillas Jul 2020

The Culture Code: The Secrets Of Highly Successful Groups (Book Review), Lucero A. Aradillas

Georgia Journal of College Student Affairs

In the book The Culture Code: The Secrets of Highly Successful Groups, Daniel Coyle discusses how people work together as part of a group that achieves excellent results. As opposed to this being a book on how individuals lead, the author focuses on how people interact successfully and productively with each other; thereby, giving leaders three skills that can help hone successful teams. His research identified three skills that propel effective teamwork: Build Safety, Share Vulnerability, and Establish Purpose. This book review will briefly describe these skills and how the book provides a solid base for leaders seeking to lead ...


Becoming Liberated In The Process Of Researching And Writing About Liberation: A Scholarly Reflection Of A Healing Process In A Doctoral Program, Falon N. Thacker Jul 2020

Becoming Liberated In The Process Of Researching And Writing About Liberation: A Scholarly Reflection Of A Healing Process In A Doctoral Program, Falon N. Thacker

Georgia Journal of College Student Affairs

This article chronicles the process of researching and writing a dissertation about liberation and how it connects to my own experiences of liberation. Qualitative research involves a more personal connection between the researcher and the study (Hays & Singh, 2012) which allows for a more in depth understanding of the experiences of the participants and the researcher. This article provides a reflection of my journey that began in early childhood and through the doctoral process, connecting those experiences to the research process utilizing Pillow’s (2003) four reflexive strategies. Reflecting on the method, theory, and findings, the researcher makes connections with ...

Wrack & Ruin: A Tale Of Tortured Trees, John T. Van Stan Ii, Albertus Tyasseta, Siloy, Graphic Artist Jun 2020

Wrack & Ruin: A Tale Of Tortured Trees, John T. Van Stan Ii, Albertus Tyasseta, Siloy, Graphic Artist

Geology and Geography Faculty Bookshelf

This work was co-authored by Georgia Southern Faculty member Dr. John T. Van Stan II.

Here, we visit a community of trees living along the Georgia coast, just above the high tide line, on a little lump of sand called a "hammock." This hammock plant community is battered by a hurricane. The plants that survive soon realize that they have fallen prey to a hydrological torture wrack - one composed of the salty corpses of their neighboring marsh plants (Spartina alterniflora). This sci comic is based on the publication, "Wrack and ruin: Legacy hydrologic effects of hurricane-deposited wrack..." (https://doi.org ...

Wrack And Ruin: Legacy Hydrologic Effects Of Hurricane-Deposited Wrack On Hardwood-Hammock Coastal Islands, John T. Van Stan Ii, Scott T. Allen, Travis Swanson

Geology and Geography Faculty Publications

Hurricanes can cause immediate catastrophic destruction of marsh vegetation and erosion of soils; however, they also have long-lasting ecological impacts. Those impacts include the deposition of tremendous amounts of saltmarsh litter ('wrack') onto upland ecosystems, the hydrologic effects of which have not previously been investigated. When Hurricane Irma battered the southeastern US coastline, widespread wrack deposition was reported (often exceeding 0.5 m depth), especially in vulnerable coastal hammock ecosystems: locally-elevated forests within the saltmarshes that rely on freshwater inputs from rain. We report the impacts of this deposited wrack, which has persisted for 2 years, on effective precipitation inputs ...

Creating Oral History Collections In Digital Commons, Christy Allen, Rick Jones May 2020

Creating Oral History Collections In Digital Commons, Christy Allen, Rick Jones

Digital Commons Southeastern User Group 2020

Furman University has seen a boom in the creation of oral histories over the past several years. This presentation will look at two of their oral history collections and discuss how they are built and presented within Digital Commons. The "Furman University Oral Histories" project contains historical histories digitized nearly a decade ago with limited metadata and poor audio/video quality. The "Oral Histories of Columbian Textile Workers in Greenville, South Carolina" is a new collection of recent histories which contain videos, Spanish/English translations, transcripts, and robust metadata. The presenters will discuss the benefits and challenges of each collection ...


From Dublin Core To Marc - Crosswalking Etd Metadata From Digital Commons To The Library Catalog, Jill V. Krefft, Zhonghua Du, Rebecca Bakker May 2020

From Dublin Core To Marc - Crosswalking Etd Metadata From Digital Commons To The Library Catalog, Jill V. Krefft, Zhonghua Du, Rebecca Bakker

Digital Commons Southeastern User Group 2020

Florida International University has developed a semi-automated process for harvesting and transforming qualified Dublin Core metadata to MARC for electronic theses and dissertations published in Digital Commons for inclusion in the library catalog. This presentation will share the workflow whereby metadata is harvested via OAI-PMH; transformed to MARC using a script; and ingested into the catalog. Challenges and benefits of this workflow will be discussed.

This presentation will also share information related to our retrospective thesis and dissertation scanning project; the need to overlay existing records in the catalog with new metadata; and specific challenges related to RTDs.


Lessons Learned In Lmu Digital Commons, Arya Hackney May 2020

Lessons Learned In Lmu Digital Commons, Arya Hackney

Digital Commons Southeastern User Group 2020

When creating an institutional repository (IR) from scratch, there are both challenges and opportunities before the manifestation of the IR, during it, and the final product. Maintaining the IR in kind also introduces additional considerations to navigate. Is it only one person who creates and maintains the IR, or is it the community? Or is it somewhere in between? What is the ideal scenario and what is the realistic outcome? Is there any way to anticipate the bureaucratic demands for the IR’s presence? This presentation answers all these questions, some answers simpler than others using LMU Digital Commons as ...


Automating Metadata Pulls Via Doi And Google Apps Scripts, Aajay Murphy, Himaja Kailaswar May 2020

Automating Metadata Pulls Via Doi And Google Apps Scripts, Aajay Murphy, Himaja Kailaswar

Digital Commons Southeastern User Group 2020

In this presentation, two IR workers will discuss the origination, development, complications, and successes of their efforts in creating a Google Apps Script to pull metadata for batch uploading faculty publications into the Digital Commons. By pasting a DOI into a particular cell in a Google Sheet, the IR manager can automagically plug in the metadata that coordinate with bepress’s batch upload Excel sheet. This happens by pulling in the information from CrossRef’s database. Future development could result in a more seamless and effective batch upload procedure, but it is also dependent on the publishing community to be ...

Establishing Best Practices In Institutional Repository Organization, Scott Bacon

Digital Commons Southeastern User Group 2020

On the one-year anniversary of the CCU Digital Commons repository the organization of the Collections / Communities.html page was reviewed to gauge the need for revisions. Over 100 Digital Commons sites were examined to see how other repository managers organized their Collections pages. Top-level communities were coded into Community Types and were analyzed to surface trends in current practice. This presentation reviews trends in practice that emerged during research, as well as some of the best practices that were identified, including planning, iteration, labeling, limiting jargon, and finding a balance with top-level and nested content. Suggestions for improvement are given ...

Kicking & Streaming! Enhancing Digitally-Born Oral History Collections In Digital Commons, Autumn Johnson May 2020

Kicking & Streaming! Enhancing Digitally-Born Oral History Collections In Digital Commons, Autumn Johnson

Digital Commons Southeastern User Group 2020

Oral history collections pose unique challenges for archival institutions. Making these important histories available to researchers is often impeded by complex issues of access, privacy rights, and media obsolescence. These challenges are magnified when histories are digitally-born. Not only do they face the same issues as their analog counterparts, but digital materials have their own unique preservation and access issues with which archivists are still struggling to identify best practices. Digital Commons offers archivists a platform for sharing digitally-born oral histories that mitigate many of these complex issues. Not only does the platform allow for the consolidation of files from ...


Giving New Life To Old Memories: Migrating Central Florida Memory From Contentdm To Digital Commons, Lee Dotson May 2020

Giving New Life To Old Memories: Migrating Central Florida Memory From Contentdm To Digital Commons, Lee Dotson

Digital Commons Southeastern User Group 2020

For 18 years, CONTENTdm was home to Central Florida Memory (CFM). CFM is a cooperative project started by three partner institutions in 2002 to provide an online platform and focal point for gathering, preserving, and disseminating the documents, artifacts, and stories of the history of Central Florida. As the project grew to include content from nine partners, UCF remained the primary technology support and host institution for Central Florida Memory. Recent server consolidations and lack of support for locally hosted CONTENTdm instances underscored the urgent need to migrate this valued cultural heritage content to another platform. In the Fall of ...

Mining The Minutia: Leveraging Adobe Acrobat’S Comparison Tools For Cv Updates, Jennifer Gerrald, Jeffrey M. Mortimore May 2020

Mining The Minutia: Leveraging Adobe Acrobat’S Comparison Tools For Cv Updates, Jennifer Gerrald, Jeffrey M. Mortimore

Digital Commons Southeastern User Group 2020

As every profile administrator knows, CVs are amorphous documents. Updates can occur anywhere at any time as researchers’ statuses, institutional roles, and research agendas evolve. Sections and entries can appear and disappear fluidly over the life of a CV, and even details within a single entry can change over time. For the profile administrator, catching these updates efficiently and effectively can be a real challenge. This presentation details one university’s approach to using Adobe Acrobat’s document comparison tools to identify, track, and process updates that improves significantly on manual review techniques. Presenters provide a detailed overview of this ...


Drive Traffic, Increase Links, Michele Gibney, Nicole Grady May 2020

Drive Traffic, Increase Links, Michele Gibney, Nicole Grady

Digital Commons Southeastern User Group 2020

One of the best ways to drive traffic to an institutional repository site is by adding links to it from other, established sites. This could be your institutional website – adding links from a departmental page to the department’s scholarly work. Or from your social media platforms to a relevant article corresponding with a topical news event. Another option is Wikipedia. Have you considered leveraging Wikipedia’s astronomical base of users for your own ends? With an average of 200 million+ page views a day, Wikipedia is an excellent resource to drive traffic to your IR.

But HOW can you ...
