The Impact Of A Mindfulness-Based Group On Anxiety In Sixth Grade Students, Carina Ingoglia 2017 The College at Brockport

The Impact Of A Mindfulness-Based Group On Anxiety In Sixth Grade Students, Carina Ingoglia

Counselor Education Capstone

This study examines the impact of a five-week mindfulness-based group on levels of anxiety in sixth grade students. Anxiety is a prevalent problem among children and adolescents. Research shows the need for early intervention for students dealing with anxiety (HirshfeldBecker & Biderman, 2002). Research suggests that mindfulness techniques are effective in decreasing anxiety in adolescents (Skorman Cicero, 2013; Semple et al., 2005; Napoli et al., 2015; Semple et al., 2010). Each group in this study included discussing the students’ anxiety concerns and practicing new mindfulness exercises. The group curriculum focused on paying attention to thoughts and feelings without judgment. Results show a decrease in overall anxiety levels among group members. Students also reported positive feedback about the group ...


The Effects Of Successful Completion Of Dialectical Behavior Therapy On Reduction Of High Cost Emergency Service Utilization, Christine Wilson 2017 The College at Brockport

The Effects Of Successful Completion Of Dialectical Behavior Therapy On Reduction Of High Cost Emergency Service Utilization, Christine Wilson

Counselor Education Capstone

Dialectical Behavior Therapy is one of the most highly researched evidence-based practices for the treatment of personality disorders as well as functional deficits in emotional regulation, distress tolerance and interpersonal skills (Brazier et al., 2006). These symptoms untreated often lead to the utilization of crisis management mental health treatment including inpatient hospitalizations and emergency department visits (Lieb et al., 2004). This research study examined whether DBT is an effective treatment modality to reduce high cost emergency service usage. This research study is a secondary analysis of data that has been collected by a community mental health organization. Aggregate data was ...


Nutrition And Mental Health, Michelle Burke 2017 The College at Brockport

Nutrition And Mental Health, Michelle Burke

Counselor Education Capstone

This research study was focused on the barriers mental health clients experience to consuming a plant-based diet. The research participants included seven clients at an outpatient mental health clinic consisting of different diagnoses, races, and ages. A multi-method approach was utilized with the use of a nutritional survey followed by a semi-structured interview. Six of the seven participants consume a poor diet per the nutritional assessment. When asked the barrier(s) to consuming a healthy diet, five participants expressed lack of interest and another participant reported lack of resources. Further research is recommended in this area.

Investigating The Effect Of Group Process On Depression For Lgbtqia Adolescents, Michael J. Pernot

Counselor Education Capstone

This quantitative study implements secondary data to analyze the impact of a psychoeducational group on reported depression scores from teenagers identifying on the LGBTQIA spectrum. Teenagers participating in this group completed Beck’s Depression Inventory, 2nd Edition (BDI II) before entering the group then completed another BDI II after completing the 12 week group. A paired samples t-test was used to investigate the relationship between reported depression scores and participation in the group. Results corroborated previous findings that group participation impacts reported depression scores, but further research is needed to determine specific causation of the changes in scores.


High School Seniors’ Perceived Stress Of The College And Career Decision-Making Process, Michelle Infantolino 2017 The College at Brockport

High School Seniors’ Perceived Stress Of The College And Career Decision-Making Process, Michelle Infantolino

Counselor Education Capstone

The focus of the school counselor is on every student’s academic development, career development, and social/emotional development in order to promote a culture of academic excellence and college/career readiness (ASCA Mindsets & Behaviors, 2014). Being able to identify what students are stressed about the most can help school counselors narrow down what they need to be focusing on in preparing students for life after graduation. The purpose of this study was to determine what high school seniors perceive to be the most stressful about the post-graduation decision-making process, and what schools are and aren't doing to aid ...

Exploring The Relationship Between Depression And Resilience In Survivors Of Childhood Trauma, Marquis A. Norton 2017 Old Dominion University

Exploring The Relationship Between Depression And Resilience In Survivors Of Childhood Trauma, Marquis A. Norton

Counseling & Human Services Theses & Dissertations

Although experiences of trauma are common, reactions vary due to a host of biopsychosocial and cultural factors that influence the individual reaction to the trauma (Nakai et al., 2015). One such factor is resiliency, the capability to adapt in adverse environmental circumstances (Basim & Cetin, 2011). This study used hierarchical multiple regression to examine the relationships between childhood trauma, recent experiences of depression, and resilience in adult university students. This study also examined the possible moderating effects on depression by resilience. Participants completed the Childhood Trauma Questionnaire, Connor-Davidson Resilience scale, and PROMIS Depression survey. Small significant relationships were found for several ...

Scholastic Journalism Adviser's Guide, Mark Hilburn 2017 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Scholastic Journalism Adviser's Guide, Mark Hilburn

Professional Projects from the College of Journalism and Mass Communications

With a passion for scholastic (high school) journalism, I want my professional project to tailor to that. I hold multiple degrees and certifications in journalism, which have no doubt helped me in the classroom, but not all high school journalism teachers do. Instead, many are taking teaching positions and are told at the time of their interview, or later, that journalism classes (mainly yearbook and newspaper) are part of their teaching schedule. Wanting a job in such a competitive market, these teachers are agreeing and then left scrambling to teach themselves the curriculum before they can teach it to students ...


Dominican College Students’ Experiences Of Distress, Help-Seeking And Stigma, Laura Alicia Pacheco del Castillo 2017 Western Michigan University

Dominican College Students’ Experiences Of Distress, Help-Seeking And Stigma, Laura Alicia Pacheco Del Castillo

Dissertations

The Dominican Republic has a population of over 10 million, from which an estimated 20% fall within the age range of 10 to 19 years old (OECD, 2012). The provision of education, particularly for Dominican youth, has been established as a long-term social and economic priority at the government level (OECD, 2012; Pimentel, 2002). Nevertheless, research suggests that education and health management in the Dominican Republic have been historically inadequate and insufficient (Schumacher, 2010; Vargas-Lundius, 1991). Further research is warranted to better understand Dominican students’ mental health experiences as they attempt to succeed in formal learning environments (Schumacher, 2010).

Impact Of Post-Secondary Correctional Education On Self-Efficacy And Personal Agency Of Formerly Incarcerated African American Men, David E. Jones 2017 Western Michigan University

Impact Of Post-Secondary Correctional Education On Self-Efficacy And Personal Agency Of Formerly Incarcerated African American Men, David E. Jones

Dissertations

This study explored the impact of post-secondary correctional education (PSCE) on those released from prison, with special attention paid to individuals’ sense of self-efficacy and personal agency. A review of the literature indicates the vast majority of people who enter prison will one day return to society. These returning citizens face a number of hurdles as they work to reconstruct life outside of prison and avoid recidivism. Prior research suggests education is positively correlated with successful reentry into society. Unfortunately, there are few opportunities to pursue education past the secondary level in prison, which limits access to the corollary benefits ...

Eating Affordable Together, Nicole E. Teefy 2017 Kent State University

Eating Affordable Together, Nicole E. Teefy

Undergraduate Research Symposium

Our intervention, Eating Affordable Together provides young adults and their families with education and skills to achieve a healthy lifestyle while reducing the obesity in adolescents within Portage County. The obesity rate since the 1980’s in teens has gone from 5% to over 20%. In Portage County 15% of youth are considered obese. Obesity increases risk for anxiety, depression, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, and stroke. We are focusing on adolescents and their parents because adolescents depend on these parents or legal guardians for guidance and resources such as food. We would like to implement workshops consisting of ...

Concussions And Student Sports: A 'Silent Epidemic', Susan C. Davies, Charles J. Russo, Allan G. Osborne

Charles J. Russo

An issue that has gained attention concerns concussions among student–athletes in elementary and secondary schools. In fact, in light of the “silent epidemic” of concussions among student–athletes, in the six month period ending in August of 2011, the number of states that enacted statutes on concussion management jumped from eleven to thirty–one and the list of jurisdictions with laws in place continues to grow.

Based on the significance of concussion management, the remainder of this article is divided into two sections. The first part of the article examines the background on concussions while the second offers recommendations ...

Beyond Black And White: Infusing Restorative Practices Into Student Discipline, Louis L. Fletcher PhD, Peter Hilts 2017 School District 49 (Colorado)

Beyond Black And White: Infusing Restorative Practices Into Student Discipline, Louis L. Fletcher Phd, Peter Hilts

National Youth-At-Risk Conference Savannah

As a reaction to school violence, zero-tolerance became the rule in many school districts. The latter practice silenced student voices and institutionalized the overrepresentation of minority students in discipline situations. An over-reliance on punishment has not significantly changed behavior; therefore, it is time to explore proactively using restorative practices to allow students to value the reasons behind rules instead of simply complying to avoid punishment.
