Cognitive Defusion Versus Thought Distraction: A Clinical Rationale, Training, And Experiential Exercise In Altering Psychological Impacts Of Negative Self-Referential Thoughts., Akihiko Masuda, A. B. Feinstein, J. W. Wendell, S. T. Sheehan

Psychology Faculty Publications

Using two modes of intervention delivery, the present study compared the effects of a cognitive defusion strategy with a thought distraction strategy on the emotional discomfort and believability of negative self-referential thoughts. One mode of intervention delivery consisted of a clinical rationale and training (i.e., Partial condition). The other mode contained a condition-specific experiential exercise with the negative self-referential thought in addition to the clinical rationale and training (i.e., Full condition). Non-clinical undergraduates were randomly assigned to one of five protocols: Partial-Defusion, Full-Defusion, Partial-Distraction, Full-Distraction, and a distraction-based experimental control task. The Full-Defusion condition reduced the emotional discomfort ...


Mindfulness Mediates The Relation Between Disordered Eating-Related Cognitions And Psychological Distress, Akihiko Masuda, J. W. Wendell 2010 Georgia State University

Mindfulness Mediates The Relation Between Disordered Eating-Related Cognitions And Psychological Distress, Akihiko Masuda, J. W. Wendell

Psychology Faculty Publications

The present study investigated whether mindfulness mediates the relation between disordered eating-related cognitions and negative psychological outcomes within a non-clinical college sample. Disordered eating-related cognitions were positively associated with general psychological ill-health and emotional distress in interpersonal contexts and inversely related to mindfulness. Mindfulness, which was also inversely related to general psychological ill- health and emotional distress, was found to partially mediate the relations between disordered eating-related cognitions and the two predicted variables.

Neural Correlates Of Treatment In Adolescents With Generalized Anxiety Disorder: A Preliminary Investigation, Julie Maslowsky, Karin Mogg, Brendan P. Bradley, Erin B. Mcclure-Tone, Monique Ernst, Daniel S. Pine, Christopler S. Monk

Psychology Faculty Publications

Objective: Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is a prevalent and debilitating psychiatric condition in adolescence. Two effective forms of treatment are cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. This pilot study examined changes in brain function following each type of treatment in GAD. Method: Subjects were 14 youth with GAD (7 had CBT, 7 received fluoxetine) and 10 age- and gender-matched healthy peers. FMRI scans were acquired before and after treatment for patients, and over two comparable time points for controls. During fMRI acquisition, a probe detection task with emotional (angry, happy) and neutral faces allowed for assessment of ...


The Honduran Question: The U.S. Answer To Latin America, Lindsay Young 2010 Pepperdine University

The Honduran Question: The U.S. Answer To Latin America, Lindsay Young

Pepperdine Policy Review

Honduras grabbed international headlines when the Honduran Military removed José Manuel Zelaya Rosales from power on June 28, 2009. This paper uses the instability in Honduras as a case study of how the United States should respond to threats to democracy, and approach questions of democratic legitimacy in Latin America. It will first evaluate democratic contentions to put the Honduran crisis into a broader historical context. Next, it will examine the legality of the actions that triggered the democratic crisis because, though legality is not sufficient for legitimacy, it should be an important consideration in determining foreign policy responses. It ...


Latin America And The Financial Crisis Of 2008: Lessons And Challenges, Luisa Blanco 2010 Pepperdine University

Latin America And The Financial Crisis Of 2008: Lessons And Challenges, Luisa Blanco

Pepperdine Policy Review

In October of 2008 there were two main views of what the financial crisis would do to emerging countries in Latin America. The optimistic view predicted that they would do well overall and that the crisis would not have a significant impact on them because their economies were decoupled from the rest of the world. The pessimistic view saw these economies as vulnerable to the financial crisis, which meant they would become unstable and perform poorly. Over a year later, the outcome is something in between. This article will explain the current state of the financial crisis in Latin America ...


Economic Human Rights Violations Experiences By Women With Children In The United States, Sarah E. Twill, Samantha Fisher 2010 Wright State University - Main Campus

Economic Human Rights Violations Experiences By Women With Children In The United States, Sarah E. Twill, Samantha Fisher

Social Work Faculty Publications

In 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) was adopted by the United Nations. Economic human rights are expressed in Articles 23, 25, and 26. The UDHR requires that poverty be seen not just as an unfortunate living condition but also as a violation of human rights. In this study, 20 women with children were educated about the UDHR and interviewed in order to understand their stories of poverty through the lens of rights violations. Implications for reframing poverty as a rights violations and how social workers can advocate for policies that promote the well-being of families are discussed.


Playing In A New Key, In A New World: Virtual Worlds, Millennial Writers, And 3d Composition, Joe Essid 2010 University of Richmond

Playing In A New Key, In A New World: Virtual Worlds, Millennial Writers, And 3d Composition, Joe Essid

English Faculty Publications

In the author’s courses, students have been augmentationist, not immersionist, in their approaches to using technology. In a virtual world, however, they are born with new skins into strange settings, doing things that might be impossible in the world of matter. Their frequent discomfort at this rebirth corroborates findings in two studies (Mosier, 2009; Howe & Strauss, 2000) that American "Millennials" distrust activities that seem to have no direct bearing on their educational outcomes, established social circles, or professional desires. The chapter describes assignments for such students, in the context of Rouzie s (2005) "serio-ludic "pedagogy. Several touchstones for educators ...

The Pedagogy Of Digital Storytelling In The College Classroom, Rachel Raimist, Candance Doerr-Stevens, Walter R. Jacobs 2010 The University of Alabama

The Pedagogy Of Digital Storytelling In The College Classroom, Rachel Raimist, Candance Doerr-Stevens, Walter R. Jacobs

Faculty Publications, Sociology

In the fall of 2008, Rachel Raimist and Walter Jacobs collaboratively designed and taught the course “Digital Storytelling in and with Communities of Color” to 18 undergraduate students from a variety of disciplines. Candance Doerr-Stevens audited the class as a graduate student. This article examines the media making processes of the students in the course, asking how participants used digital storytelling to engage with themselves and the media through content creation that both mimicked and critiqued current media messages. In particular, students used the medium of digital storytelling to build and revise identities for purposes of rememory, reinvention, and cultural ...

Speaking The Lower Frequencies 2.0: Digital Ghost Stories, Walter R. Jacobs

Faculty Publications, Sociology

In Speaking the Lower Frequencies: Students and Media Literacy Walter R. Jacobs explores how college students can become critical consumers of media while retaining the pleasure they derive from it. Speaking the Lower Frequencies 2.0: Race, Learning, and Literacy in the Digital Age builds on its predecessor by examining pedagogy and literacy through theories and practices of digital media making, specifically digital storytelling methods used in a fall 2008 undergraduate class, "Digital Storytelling in and with Communities of Color." Jacobs begins his keynote with the course description and then examines one component of the class project. students' engagement with ...

Globalization And Economic Growth In Sub-Saharan Africa, Hadiatou Barry 2010 Gettysburg College

Globalization And Economic Growth In Sub-Saharan Africa, Hadiatou Barry

Gettysburg Economic Review

This study analyzes Sub-Saharan Africa through the framework of globalization. The study‘s objective is to determine whether globalization is a significant factor when associated with economic growth in the region. Using panel data from 1995-2005 for 41 countries and the KOF globalization index, an Ordinary Least Squares (OLS) model was employed to examine the relationship between globalization and other traditional factors of economic growth such as trade, foreign direct investment, loans, aid, natural resources, corruption, and rule of law. The study shows that globalization has a positive, though statistically insignificant impact on the economic growth of Sub-Saharan Africa. However ...


The Trend Of The Gender Wage Gap Over The Business Cycle, Nicholas J. Finio 2010 Gettysburg College

The Trend Of The Gender Wage Gap Over The Business Cycle, Nicholas J. Finio

Gettysburg Economic Review

Even after the close of the first decade of the 21st century, there is still significant gender bias in labor market composition and compensation. As the events of the last two years have proven, even drastic efforts of monetary and fiscal policy have not tamed the business cycle. Previous research has reached no definite conclusions on the effect of business cycle trends on the gender wage gap. Over the period from 1979:1 to 2009:3, it is found that increases in the growth rate of GDP yield decreases in women‘s earnings relative to men‘s, and it is ...


International Graduate Students And U.S. Innovation, Svetoslav I. Semov 2010 Gettysburg College

International Graduate Students And U.S. Innovation, Svetoslav I. Semov

Gettysburg Economic Review

This paper attempts to empirically evaluate the contribution of international graduate students to U.S. innovation. The main framework used is a simplified version of the ―national ideas production function‖. Two econometric specification are estimated – one in which a time trend is incorporated to observe the short-term relationship between the variables and one in which no time trend is included with the goal of capturing the variables‘ long term equilibrium relationship. The results suggest that in the long-term the number of international graduate students significantly (at the 10% level) affects innovative activity. However, when the short-term relationship of the variables ...


Clovis Excavations At Topper 2005-2007: Examining Site Formation Processes At An Upland Paleoindian Site Along The Middle Savannah River, D. Shane Miller 2010 University of South Carolina

Clovis Excavations At Topper 2005-2007: Examining Site Formation Processes At An Upland Paleoindian Site Along The Middle Savannah River, D. Shane Miller

Occasional Papers – Southeastern Paleoamerican Survey

With this inaugural issue of the Occasional Papers series of the Southeastern Paleoamerican Survey, we are pleased to offer this monograph by D. Shane Miller which was based on his masters thesis research at the Topper site. His excavations, conducted over 2006-2007, resulted in a 64m square block, the largest contiguous unit yet excavated at Topper. Situated in a previously plowed firebreak on the southern hillside exhibiting partial erosion, it was decided to take advantage of this situation and recover the basal Clovis remains in the undisturbed portion of the profile. This strategy worked well and allowed Miller to fairly ...


Why Your Academic Library Needs A Popular Reading Collection Now More Than Ever, Pauline Dewan 2010 Wilfrid Laurier University

Why Your Academic Library Needs A Popular Reading Collection Now More Than Ever, Pauline Dewan

Library Publications

Do popular reading materials belong in college and university libraries? Although some librarians think not, others believe there are compelling reasons for including them. The trend towards user-focused libraries, the importance of attracting patrons to libraries in the age of the Internet, and, most importantly, the need to promote literacy at a time when it has reached its lowest levels are all reasons why academic librarians are reconsidering their ideas about popular reading materials. Librarians who decide to implement a leisure reading collection should consider a number of key issues.
