Healing Racial Injustice With Mindfulness Research, Training, & Practice, Danielle "Danae" Laura
Mindfulness Studies Theses
This thesis offers a collection of authors and studies in support of improved research, training, and practice connecting mindfulness with racial justice through intergroup applications. The paper identifies barriers at work (e.g., colorblindness, spiritual bypass, white fragility, and implicit bias) in contemplative science, Western Buddhist communities, and secular mindfulness centers, which block the sizeable contributions possible in studying the intergroup application of mindfulness practice—specifically Lovingkindness Meditation, among others—when used as an intervention with anti-racist aims. Through secondary qualitative research, I reviewed six key works from Black authors on mindfulness and race, as well as six sample studies ...

The Secret Sauce Of Online Community Of Practice During Covid-19 Pandemic: Nonviolent Communication, 2021 Columbia College Chicago, USA
The Secret Sauce Of Online Community Of Practice During Covid-19 Pandemic: Nonviolent Communication, Yonty Friesem, Elizaveta Friesem
Journal of Media Literacy Education
The challenges of work-family balance while being asked to move to remote instruction and engage students creatively have affected us all globally on multiple levels - from our professional identity, to our own health, mortality and purpose in life. The idea behind Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is that as Rosenberg (2015/1999) put it, it is a language that celebrates life. Applying these practices in a community building initiative of the Media Education Lab during the COVID-19 pandemic supported our community not only for their professional needs, but also and most importantly in their social and emotional resiliency to keep positive their ...
The Disc® Personal Profiles Of Emerging Sign Language Interpreters, 2021 Rochester Institute of Technology's National Technical Institute for the Deaf
The Disc® Personal Profiles Of Emerging Sign Language Interpreters, Kim B. Kurz, Kierstin S. Muroski, Veronika B. Talbott
Journal of Interpretation
Language interpretation is a discipline of choices governed by the unique personality and behavioral traits of individuals involved in an interpreted interaction. Interpreters are communication facilitators for people who do not share languages. Every interpreter has distinct personality and behavioral traits that influence their communication choices. There are benefits for interpreters to be keenly aware of personality styles and behaviors. This article reports the findings of the personality and behavioral styles using the DiSC® Personality Profile Instrument of 242 undergraduate American Sign Language-English Interpreting students over a nine-year period. Specifically the study explores the four DiSC® profiles, Dominance, Influence, Steadiness ...

Nurse Manager Communication Associated With Staff Nurse Satisfaction Or Retention, 2021 Kennesaw State University
Nurse Manager Communication Associated With Staff Nurse Satisfaction Or Retention, Svetlana Periut, Mary Dioise Ramos
Symposium of Student Scholars
Nurse Manager Communication Associated with Staff Nurse Satisfaction or Retention
Background: Nursing communication is a significant part of a nurse's job, especially when communicating with their patients, patients' families, and the healthcare team. Communication is the center of attention of many studies, and the way nurse leaders relate massages can influence an organization’s outcomes, including nurse satisfaction and retention. This integrative study aims to analyze communication styles, behaviors, and instruments used by hospital unit nurse managers to increase staff nurse satisfaction and retention. Methods: The Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis were used in the ...
“Don’T Touch My Hair”: An Examination Of The Exercise Of Privilege And Power Through Interracial Hair-Centered Communication Interactions, Zakiya Collier
Proceedings of the New York State Communication Association
The black body, including skin color and hair texture, has served as markers of Otherness separating Black people from people of other racial groups. Because of this, the black body especially that of the female, is frequently subjected to the interrogation by non-black people. This study examines the effects of that interrogation as it relates to black women’s hair. Two critical questions are explored: 1) What role does white privilege play in the questioning and touching of Black hair? and 2) Do these questions signify the innocent quest of information for understanding and coexistence or are they assertions of ...
Consumer Representative Experiences Of Partnership With Health Workers In Australia, 2021 Western Sydney Local Health District, NSW, Australia
Consumer Representative Experiences Of Partnership With Health Workers In Australia, Coralie R. Wales, Judith A. Lababedi, Alison Coles, Philip Lee, Emma Clarke
Patient Experience Journal
We examine the experiences of Consumer Representatives participating in consumer engagement activities across a public health service in NSW, Australia. A team of Consumer Representatives and staff members use a participatory, constructivist paradigm and a hermeneutic phenomenological approach to analyse ten interviews with Consumer Representatives over three years 2017-2019, and three focus groups in 2020. We explore these experiences and identify the linked contextual factors from their points of view. Consumer Representatives were prepared to invest their time, but they needed respect. “Respect” from a consumer perspective was being meaningfully included, supported and heard, and activities needed to be purposeful ...

Toward A New Community Of Care: Best Practices For Educators And Administrators During The Covid-19 Pandemic, Cody M. Clemens, Tomeka M. Robinson
Journal of Communication Pedagogy
The onset of COVID-19 left people feeling unsettled, confused, and afraid of what tomorrow may hold. As university professors specializing in health communication, we too were left with these same feelings. As health communication scholars, we focus on issues surrounding illness, risk, crisis, care, health inequities, and wellness. COVID-19 is a health crisis, yes, but it has also changed the way we operate not only in higher education but in daily life. We begin this essay with an overview of COVID-19 and its impact on students, educators, and administrators. Then, we suggest four best practices to foster a community of ...
"It's Been A Good Reminder That Students Are Human Beings": An Exploratory Inquiry Of Instructors’ Rhetorical And Relational Goals During Covid-19, Victoria Mcdermott, Drew T. Ashby-King
Journal of Communication Pedagogy
As colleges and universities moved to remote learning during the Spring 2020 semester due to COVID-19, the traditional higher education classroom format was challenged. This study examines how instructors reconceptualized their rhetorical and relational goals in the pandemic classroom. A thematic analysis of 68 qualitative survey responses revealed that instructors adapted their rhetorical and relational approaches to instruction due to a perceived change in students’ needs. Moreover, findings suggest that instructors intend to continue to use many of these instructional changes in their post-pandemic classrooms. These conclusions confirm that instructors should consider contextual factors not only during but also after ...
Frederick Wiseman's Essene (1972): The Duality Of Mary And Martha, 2021 New York University
Frederick Wiseman's Essene (1972): The Duality Of Mary And Martha, Nilita Vachani
Journal of Religion & Film
America’s legendary documentary filmmaker Frederick Wiseman shot Essene 50 years ago at the height of the commune movement in the United States. Unlike his previous institutional films which showcase an insane asylum, a public high school, an inner city police force, a hospital, and a military training school, Essene's canvas is the far less turbulent terrain of a serene and austere Benedictine monastery devoted to the love and service of God and the divine spirit. This paper undertakes a close textual and hermeneutic analysis of Essene alongside an appraisal of Wiseman’s working methodology, his cinematic portrayals of ...
Moving From Dialogue To Deliberation About Campus Diversity, Equity, And Inclusion, 2021 Santa Clara University
Moving From Dialogue To Deliberation About Campus Diversity, Equity, And Inclusion, Chad Raphael
Experiential Learning & Teaching in Higher Education
Campus communities continue to become increasingly diverse as the U.S. grows more sensitized to, yet polarized over, issues of social justice. In response, many institutions of higher learning are placing greater emphasis on students’ experiential learning about diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in co-curricular experiences such as new student orientation and in coursework. Experiential educators can help students forge links between learning about DEI in the co-curriculum and curriculum, and to move from intergroup dialogue to deliberation, which allows student learning to inform institutional learning. This article describes the design, outcomes, and implications of a course on dialogue and ...
The 12 Fundamentals Of Highly Effective Communicators: Teaching Theory-Based Professional Communication To Pharmacy Students, 2021 The University of Texas at Austin
The 12 Fundamentals Of Highly Effective Communicators: Teaching Theory-Based Professional Communication To Pharmacy Students, Erin Donovan, Laura Brown, Calandra Lindstadt, Billy Table, Elham Heidari, Andrew Coolidge, Suheib Omran, Sharon Rush
Journal of Communication Pedagogy
Pharmacists are increasingly expected to communicate skillfully, yet few Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) curricula include theoretically-derived or evidence-based communication training. The 12 Fundamentals of Highly Effective Communicators is a pedagogical tool that we developed to teach principles of communication to two consecutive cohorts of PharmD students in their second year (P2). Students were asked to reflect on which of the 12 Fundamentals they found most helpful in their pharmacy training and practice. The most frequently selected Fundamental was “There is no ‘one size fits all’ message that will work in EVERY situation.” Students provided specific examples of how they perceived ...
The Art Of Breaking Up: Ending Romantic Relationships, 2021 University of South Dakota
The Art Of Breaking Up: Ending Romantic Relationships, Emma Salzwedel
This thesis reviews research on the most difficult aspect of dating: the breakup. The process of ending a romantic relationship follows a particular pattern which begins when problems begin to arise in the partnership and ends when both individuals have accepted the breakup and received closure. Using various peer-reviewed studies, the literature review deliberates the common predictors of a breakup, common methods of breaking up (and how each is perceived by the other person), common reactions to the breakup based on gender, and finally, the aftermath of the breakup. It is determined that personal and individual relationship factors ultimately decide ...
Preparing Internal Medicine Trainees For Independent Practice: A Pilot Simulation Program On Emotional Intelligence, 2021 St. John Fisher College
Preparing Internal Medicine Trainees For Independent Practice: A Pilot Simulation Program On Emotional Intelligence, Deborah Maier, Nagesh Jadhav, Christina Goodermote, Richard Alweis
Advances in Clinical Medical Research and Healthcare Delivery
Introduction: Emotional intelligence (EI) is the ability to monitor emotions and use this knowledge to guide one’s thinking and actions. EI shapes the physician’s bedside manner and leads to a better doctor-patient relationship. Higher physician EI is inversely proportional to feelings of burnout and increases resiliency to the stresses of the profession. Given the increasing levels of physician burnout, there has been a call to incorporate the development of emotional intelligence into medical education. However, little guidance exists on best practices in incorporating EI training into graduate medical education.
Purpose/Aim: Utilization of EI simulation as a pedagogical ...
Stakeholder Preferences For Process And Outcomes In Community-University Research Partnerships: Implications For Research Collaborations, Karen Hutchins Bieluch, Linda Silka, Laura A. Lindenfeld
Journal of Community Engagement and Scholarship
Researchers in numerous fields assert that research partnerships involving academics and nonacademics are essential for developing solutions to pressing and complex problems. While theoretically justified and urgently needed, working across institutional and epistemological boundaries to produce knowledge and create solutions turns out to be complex and challenging. Given the potential and often realized challenges of collaborations, and the need for partners to come together to develop workable solutions, additional research is needed on process in research collaborations. With this paper, we contribute to the literature on process and outcomes in the development of community-university research teams. Specifically, we study local ...

Conclusion: Female Leaders Using Coercive Power Motivate Subordinates, Mary Kovach
The Journal of Values-Based Leadership
This manuscript advances prior research (Blau, 1964; Elangovan & Xie, 1999; French & Raven, 1959; Goodstadt & Hjelle, 1973; Hegtvedt, 1988; Randolph & Kemery, 2011; Zigarmi, Peyton Roberts, & Randolph, 2015) and capitalizes on supervisory skills using power dynamics within the workplace, by investigating employee effort resulting from gender dissimilar supervisor-employee dyads and employee locus of control. To offer a more focused approach, this is an evaluation specifically on reward and coercive power derived from French and Raven’s (1959) five power bases. This manuscript proposes that the motivation levels of employees change, based on their locus of control and gender. There were 155 full-time professionals surveyed, this study concluded a positive relationship ...
An Active Learning Approach To Listening: The Coin Drop Activity, 2021 University of Wisconsin-La Crosse
An Active Learning Approach To Listening: The Coin Drop Activity, Ronda Leahy, Michael Tollefson
Communication and Theater Association of Minnesota Journal
There is considerable research examining listening, as it is an important skill. While listening skills are important, very little instructional time is devoted to developing those skills (Hopper, 2007). After completion of this activity, students are able to describe their own listening process and assess listening techniques. This activity works well to introduce the concept of listening and various components within the listening process. Students do not typically think of listening as a skill that they can improve. When we discuss the listening process, we can recall this activity to illustrate the connection between sensing and processing.
Stereotyping: An Open Conversation On The Establishment, Nature, And Impact Of Stereotypes On Society, 2021 Arizona State University
Stereotyping: An Open Conversation On The Establishment, Nature, And Impact Of Stereotypes On Society, Christina M. Van Essen
Communication and Theater Association of Minnesota Journal
Stereotypes are generalizations about groups of people that have impacted predominantly marginalized communities. We typically use stereotypes against a generalized other and some stereotypes have become part of our perceptual sets. This activity attempts to re-humanize stereotypes by confronting students with known stereotypes and makes students reflect on the impact of stereotypes on people’s lives.
