Women's Age Of First Exposure To Internet Pornography Predicts Sexual Victimization, Sarah J. Harsey, Laura K. Noll, Melissa J. Miller, Ryan A. Shallcross 2021 University of California, Santa Cruz

Women's Age Of First Exposure To Internet Pornography Predicts Sexual Victimization, Sarah J. Harsey, Laura K. Noll, Melissa J. Miller, Ryan A. Shallcross

Dignity: A Journal of Analysis of Exploitation and Violence

Increases in the availability and accessibility of Internet pornography have led growing numbers of children to become consumers of sexually explicit media. Research has identified negative behavioral and attitudinal outcomes associated with Internet pornography use in childhood and adolescence, but few studies have examined sexual victimization as a correlate. The current study aimed to examine the association between age of first Internet pornography exposure and sexual victimization. Data from 154 undergraduate women yielded several important findings. Women who viewed Internet pornography unintentionally at a younger age reported more sexual victimization. Specifically, compared to women who were first unintentionally exposed to ...


Connecting Theories Of Emotional Intelligence And Emotion Regulation With Positive Psychology, Nadia Almheiri 2021 University of Pennsylvania

Connecting Theories Of Emotional Intelligence And Emotion Regulation With Positive Psychology, Nadia Almheiri

Master of Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) Capstone Projects

In recent years, there has been an increased scientific interest in the area of emotional intelligence, specifically emotion regulation, as well as the field of positive psychology. Because of the vital role emotion regulation plays in enhancing individuals’ overall well-being, I suggest that it is crucial to connect the two disciplines. This paper conducts a literature review, introduces an overview of positive psychology, the science of well-being, and summarizes existing emotional intelligence and emotion regulation models. It then finds how theories and applications in positive psychology interrelate with research in emotion regulation—suggesting strategies on how to best respond to ...

Teaching Military Cultural Competency To Clinicians And Clinical Students: Assessing Impact And Effectiveness, Nancy Isserman, James A. Martin

Journal of Community Engagement and Scholarship

Military members, veterans, and their families belong to a unique American subculture. Studies have identified the need for mental health professionals to attain military cultural competency to practice more effectively within this subculture. As an 88-year-old counseling and training agency with a record of service to the military/veteran communities, it was appropriate that Council for Relationships commit to providing training in military culture for its therapists and students. From 2017 to 2019, the course highlighted in this paper was part of an approved Institutional Review Board (IRB) study intended to assess the success of graduate-level instructional activities focused on ...


The Importance Of Interdisciplinary Frameworks In Social Media Mining: An Exploratory Approach Between Computational Informatics And Social Network Analysis (Sna), Danny Valdez, Meg Patterson, Tyler Prochnow MEd 2021 Indiana University School of Public Health

The Importance Of Interdisciplinary Frameworks In Social Media Mining: An Exploratory Approach Between Computational Informatics And Social Network Analysis (Sna), Danny Valdez, Meg Patterson, Tyler Prochnow Med

Health Behavior Research

Social media content is one of the most visible sources of big data and is often used in health studies to draw inferences about various behaviors. Though much can be gleaned from social media data and mining, the approaches used to collect and analyze data are generally strengthened when examined through established theoretical frameworks. Health behavior, a theory driven field, encourages interdisciplinary collaboration across fields and theories to help us draw robust conclusions about phenomena. This pilot study uses a combined computer informatics and SNA approach to analyze information spread about mask-wearing as a personal mitigation effort during the COVID-19 ...

Active Curation Of Large Longitudinal Surveys: A Case Study, Inna Kouper, Karen L. Tucker, Kevin Tharp, Mary Ellen Van Booven, Ashley Clark

Journal of eScience Librarianship

In this paper we take an in-depth look at the curation of a large longitudinal survey and activities and procedures involved in moving the data from its generation to the state that is needed to conduct scientific analysis. Using a case study approach, we describe how large surveys generate a range of data assets that require many decisions well before the data is considered for analysis and publication. We use the notion of active curation to describe activities and decisions about the data objects that are “live,” i.e., when they are still being collected and processed for the later ...

Projection-Based Ar For Hearing Parent-Deaf Child Communication, Victor N. Antony, Adira Blumenthal, Ziyue Qiu, Ashely Tenesaca, Wanyin Hu, Zhen Bai

Frameless

Deaf infants born to hearing parents are at risk of language deprivation due to lack of sign language fluency and subpar parent-child communication. We present a projection-based Augmented Reality (AR) prototype designed to improve parent-child communication and American Sign Language (ASL) acquisition. Our system aims to non-intrusively augment play episodes by projecting just-in-time and context-aware ASL equivalents extracted from nursery rhymes being sung by parents. This paper presents the initial implementation of the prototype .


Reflections Of A Central Bank Governor, Ernest K. Addison 2021 Bank of Ghana

Reflections Of A Central Bank Governor, Ernest K. Addison

Center for Social Development Research

Central banks seldom play central roles in the strategies that researchers and practitioners formulate for fostering financial capability in marginalized populations, but in this Perspective, by Dr. Ernest Addison, Governor of the Bank of Ghana, illustrates that the work of those banks is “inextricably linked” to financial capability.

This Perspective presents remarks offered by Dr. Addison as part of the event marking the launch of Financial Capability and Asset Building in Africa (FCAB Africa). Participants gathered virtually for the start of this multinational collaboration in a session of the 22nd biennial conference of the International Consortium for Social Development, which ...

Center for Social Development Research

In sub-Saharan Africa, mobile phones and financial technology have opened doors to financial inclusion for millions, but the new financial terrain is uneven ground fraught with risks.

Why Swedes Don’T Wear Face Masks During The Pandemic – A Consequence Of Blindly Trusting The Government, Bengt Johansson, Jacob Sohlberg, Peter Esaiasson, Marina Ghersetti 2021 University of Gothenburg

Why Swedes Don’T Wear Face Masks During The Pandemic – A Consequence Of Blindly Trusting The Government, Bengt Johansson, Jacob Sohlberg, Peter Esaiasson, Marina Ghersetti

Journal of International Crisis and Risk Communication Research

Government trust is generally helpful for societies, especially in crisis situations, such as during the COVID-19 pandemic, because governments rely on citizens to follow directives. Worldwide, with supporting evidence accumulating, a key directive has been to wear face masks. However, in Sweden, the government has questioned their usefulness. On other behavioral recommendations, such as handwashing, the government has taken a conventional path. We rely on this non-recommendation of face masks to examine the causal impact of government trust on behavior. Based on a large Swedish survey fielded during the pandemic, we find that higher government trust reduces the likelihood of ...

Examining The Role Of Transparent Organizational Communication For Employees’ Job Engagement And Disengagement During The Covid-19 Pandemic In Austria, Julia Stranzl, Christopher Ruppel, Sabine Einwiller

Journal of International Crisis and Risk Communication Research

This study provides an understanding of how employees’ perception of organizational transparency during the long-lasting situation of the COVID-19 pandemic engendered their job engagement as well as job disengagement. Data were collected by means of an online survey among 410 employees in Austria during March 2021. Results show that employees’ perception of their organization’s approach to transparency directly influenced their job engagement and disengagement. Importantly, the relationship between transparency and job engagement was also mediated through organizational trust, and job-specific state anxiety mediated the relationship between transparency and job disengagement. The results imply the importance of transparency during times ...
