Promoting Critical Thinking Through Service Learning: A Home-Visiting Case Study, Cynthia G. Campbell, Brianna R. Oswald 2018 Boise State University

Promoting Critical Thinking Through Service Learning: A Home-Visiting Case Study, Cynthia G. Campbell, Brianna R. Oswald

Psychological Sciences Faculty Publications and Presentations

As stated in APA Learning Outcomes 2 and 3, two central goals of higher education instruction are promoting students’ critical thinking skills and connecting student learning to real-life applications. To meet these goals, a community-based service-learning experience was designed using task value, interpersonal accountability, cognitive dissonance, and guided reflection, and was implemented to motivate and promote students’ critical thinking skills in a human development psychology course. Students in this course served as home visitors or support-group facilitators to vulnerable families and reflected on their experiences in class assignments. Qualitative evidence from class discussions and journal entries, and quantitative data from ...

Mental Health And Resource Utilization Among Underrepresented Students Transitioning To College, Yoojin Kook 2018 College of William and Mary

Mental Health And Resource Utilization Among Underrepresented Students Transitioning To College, Yoojin Kook

Undergraduate Honors Theses

Underrepresented college students – including first-generation college students, students from lower-income backgrounds, and minority students – have lower rates of college completion (Fitzgerald & Delaney, 2002; Engle & Tinto, 2008; Choy, 2001). One set of factors that could play an important role in lower rates of college persistence for these students might involve higher rates of emotional distress, coupled with greater barriers to utilizing mental healthcare resources on campus (Andrews & Wilding, 2004; Eisenberg, Golberstein, & Hunt, 2009). The current study followed 59 underrepresented students (UR; 53 racial/ethnic minority; 12 immigrants; 20 first-generation; 23 low-income) and 62 non-underrepresented students (NR) during their first semester at a medium-sized, public southeastern university to compare rates of mental health problems, as well as stigma ...


The Mind-Body Problem; Three Equations And One Solution Represented By Immaterial-Material Data, Ion G. Motofei, David L. Rowland 2018 Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Faculty of General Medicine

The Mind-Body Problem; Three Equations And One Solution Represented By Immaterial-Material Data, Ion G. Motofei, David L. Rowland

Journal of Mind and Medical Sciences

Human life occurs within a complex bio-psycho-social milieu, a heterogeneous system that is integrated by multiple bidirectional interrelations existing between the abstract-intangible ideas and physical-chemical support of environment. The mind is thus placed between the abstract ideas/ concepts and neurobiological brain that is further connected to environment. In other words, the mind acts as an interface between the immaterial (abstract/ intangible) data and material (biological) support. The science is unable to conceives and explains an interaction between the immaterial and material domains (to understand nature of the mind), this question generating in literature the mind-body problem. We have published in ...


An Intermodal Approach To Identity Formation And Empowerment In The Latina Community, Amanda Bravo 2018 Lesley University

An Intermodal Approach To Identity Formation And Empowerment In The Latina Community, Amanda Bravo

Lesley University Community of Scholars Day

For many in the Latinx community, the question of “Who am I?” depends heavily on your skin color, your gender, your hair texture, your accent, and other factors that distinguish you as non-caucasian, rather than on how many languages you speak, how well you can dance, your passion, or how deeply you love. Identity reflections are at the core of self-esteem and empowerment and can take place in a variety of settings, but unfortunately, many of these settings are tailored to the majority group as well as the individual running the exploration, leaving many Latinx individuals left out.This workshop ...


̶T̶H̶E̶ ̶ A Possibility For Light, Daniel Burmester 2018 Lesley University

̶T̶H̶E̶ ̶ A Possibility For Light, Daniel Burmester

Lesley University Community of Scholars Day

How can an educator help young people feel a reverence for and connection with the world? I asked myself this three years ago as I began thinking about how, as an educator, I could better the world. I believe that harmful action on our world can occur when reverence for and connection with it erodes or has never given a chance to flourish. Researchers in cognitive psychology have suggested that experiencing the emotion awe allows people to feel greater connections with elements of our world. (Keltner, 2016; Shiota, Keltner, & Mossman, 2007) My work at Lesley focuses on the emotion awe ...

METHODS: We conducted a population-based cross-sectional health facility survey with 1474 adults attending 10 primary healthcare facilities in Chitwan district, Nepal. The prevalence of depression and AUD was assessed ...


Mental Health Literacy For Children With A Parent With A Mental Illness, Joanne Riebschleger, Christine Grove, Shane Costello, Daniel Cavanaugh 2018 Michigan State University

Mental Health Literacy For Children With A Parent With A Mental Illness, Joanne Riebschleger, Christine Grove, Shane Costello, Daniel Cavanaugh

Journal of Parent and Family Mental Health

Promoting mental health literacy is an effective strategy to protect the wellbeing of parents with mental illness and their children. Mental health literacy is part of health literacy; it is defined as “one’s level of understanding about mental health attitudes and conditions, as well as one’s ability to prevent, recognize, and cope with these conditions” (Jorm et al., 1997 p. 182). Mental health literacy can be developed by mental health providers discussing mental illness, recovery, and coping with parents and family members, including children. Increased mental health literacy leads to engagement in mental health promotion and (for the ...


The Effects Of A Task Analysis And Self-Evaluation On The Acquisition Of Yoga Postures, Elizabeth Ortega 2018 University of South Florida

The Effects Of A Task Analysis And Self-Evaluation On The Acquisition Of Yoga Postures, Elizabeth Ortega

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

There is a growing amount of research evaluating behavioral approaches for skill acquisition in sports. Few of these studies have focused on yoga and skill acquisition. There is a need for a low effort yet effective way to teach yoga postures to individuals who do not take private yoga classes and may practice at home. This study evaluated the effects of using a picture-based task analysis and self-evaluation on the skill acquisition of yoga postures. A multiple baseline across yoga postures was used. During the task analyses intervention, the participants received a task analysis, performed the posture, and scored the ...

The Role Of Neuropsychiatrists In Medical Science, Joseph Keating, Delia Bakeman, Joshua Claunch, Sheldon Benjamin

Psychiatry Publications and Presentations

The re-emergence of neuropsychiatry in the twentieth century occurred in the context of a history of neuropsychiatric contributions to medical science. In parallel to the growth of neuropsychiatry as a medical specialty, psychiatry has benefitted from developments in neuroscience, many of these built upon foundations established by neuropsychiatrists. We sought to enumerate the contributions by psychiatrists with neurological training to advances in medical science.

Teaching Debit Card Skills Using General Case Programming, Kristin More 2018 University of South Florida

Teaching Debit Card Skills Using General Case Programming, Kristin More

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Independent living skills are extremely important for individuals with developmental disabilities as these skills aide in autonomy, lessen the burden on caregivers, and assist with integration into the community. An important skill that should be targeted is purchasing skills. Teaching purchasing skills can bring individuals into contact with new environments and access to items that would not have been available for them to access independently before learning the skill. Traditional purchasing skills often target teaching money and math skills. However, as technology advances, these skills are not only hard to teach to various individuals but may be outdated. There have ...


Maternal Psychological Distress And Cortsiol, Jenna Schroeder 2018 DePaul University

Maternal Psychological Distress And Cortsiol, Jenna Schroeder

Grace Peterson Nursing Research Colloquium

Abstract

Background: Previous studies have reported associations between prenatal maternal distress and negative health outcomes for the unborn. There are gaps within this body of knowledge and inconsistencies in the research which make the relevant relationships unclear. If changes in maternal cortisol cause alterations in fetal development, it is important to gain an adequate understanding of how, and if, maternal psychological distress predicts maternal cortisol levels. This study is an integrative literature review that looks at the research investigating a connection between maternal psychological distress and maternal cortisol levels during pregnancy.

Genetic Correlations Among Psychiatric And Immune-Related Phenotypes Based On Genome-Wide Association Data, Daniel S. Tylee, Eric O. Mick 2018 SUNY Upstate Medical University

Genetic Correlations Among Psychiatric And Immune-Related Phenotypes Based On Genome-Wide Association Data, Daniel S. Tylee, Eric O. Mick

University of Massachusetts Medical School Faculty Publications

Individuals with psychiatric disorders have elevated rates of autoimmune comorbidity and altered immune signaling. It is unclear whether these altered immunological states have a shared genetic basis with those psychiatric disorders. The present study sought to use existing summary-level data from previous genome-wide association studies (GWASs) to determine if commonly varying single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are shared between psychiatric and immune-related phenotypes. We estimated heritability and examined pair-wise genetic correlations using the linkage disequilibrium score regression (LDSC) and heritability estimation from summary statistics (HESS) methods. Using LDSC, we observed significant genetic correlations between immune-related disorders and several psychiatric disorders, including ...


Creating The Capacity To Screen Deaf Women For Perinatal Depression, Kelly S. Wolf Craig, Melissa L. Anderson, Kathleen Biebel, Nancy Byatt 2018 University of Massachusetts Medical School

Creating The Capacity To Screen Deaf Women For Perinatal Depression, Kelly S. Wolf Craig, Melissa L. Anderson, Kathleen Biebel, Nancy Byatt

Community Engagement and Research Symposia

There are approximately 1 million Deaf women in the U.S. who depend on American Sign Language (ASL) for communication. Although Deaf women become pregnant and enter motherhood at rates similar to hearing women, Deaf women attend fewer prenatal appointments, receive less information from their physicians, are less satisfied with physician concern and quality of communication, and are less satisfied with their prenatal care. These barriers persist after childbirth, leaving Deaf mothers with little professional support for struggles with postnatal healthcare, breastfeeding, and childcare.

Combined with pre-existing mental health disparities observed among members of the Deaf community, such barriers leave ...

Addressing Positive Suicide Screens In The Emergency Department: The Importance Of Post-Discharge Follow-Up, Colette Houssan, Alexandra Morena, Rachel Davis-Martin, Celine Larkin, Edwin D. Boudreaux

Community Engagement and Research Symposia

Suicide is the tenth leading cause of death and many of those who die by suicide have visited an emergency department (ED) in the months prior to their death. Thus, identification and treatment of suicidal ideation (SI) in the ED is essential to suicide prevention efforts. Although a recent effort to implement universal SI screening has identified more patients with suicide risk, there are still barriers to further risk assessment and intervention, including: patients being too ill, language differences, physician caseload, length of SI evaluation and intervention, staff availability and communication with emergency mental health (EMH) services, and stigma surrounding ...

Community Engagement and Research Symposia

Introduction: Individuals who die by suicide often make ED contact the year prior to death. In accordance with Joint Commission recommendations, universal suicide screening has been implemented across UMass Memorial Health Care EDs, in an effort to improve quality of care for patients with suicide risk. We developed clinician decision aids, clinical workflows, and electronic health record (EHR) items, and introduced them using an 'at-the-elbow' training model in the ED.

Methods: We programmed a data visualization application (Tableau), which pulls data directly from the EHR, to measure suicide-positive detection rates and physician secondary screener completion. Training logs were completed following ...

Inclusion Of Evidence-Based Healthy Eating Policies In Community Health Improvement Plans: Findings From A National Probability Survey Of Us Local Health Departments, Meera Sreedhara, Karin V. Goins, Milagros C. Rosal, Stephenie C. Lemon

UMass Worcester PRC Presentations

Introduction: Evidence-based healthy eating (HE) policies can increase opportunities to engage in a healthy diet. The adoption of evidence-based policies into practice is limited and no study reports the status of HE policies nationally. Community Health Improvement Plans (CHIPs) strategically address health priorities, steer evidence-based strategy selection and implementation, and require collaboration. Local health departments (LHDs) are often key stakeholders. We aimed to determine the proportion of LHDs with a CHIP having evidence-based HE policies.

Methods:A national probability survey of US LHDs serving populations of

Results: 44.1% (95%CI: 34.7-54.0%) of US LHDs with a CHIP ...
