Schelling, Von Neumann, And The Event That Didn’T Occur, Alexander J. Field 2017 Santa Clara University

Schelling, Von Neumann, And The Event That Didn’T Occur, Alexander J. Field

Alexander J. Field

Thomas Schelling was recognized by the Nobel Prize committee as a pioneer in the application of game theory and rational choice analysis to problems of politics and international relations. However, although he makes frequent references in his writings to this approach, his main explorations and insights depend upon and require acknowledgment of its limitations. One of his principal concerns was how a country could engage in successful deterrence. If the behavioral assumptions that commonly underpin game theory are taken seriously and applied consistently, however, nuclear adversaries are almost certain to engage in devastating conflict, as John von Neumann forcefully asserted ...


Undergraduate Research Needs: Faculty-Librarian Collaboration To Improve Information Literacy In Policy Papers, Michelle C. Pautz, Heidi Gauder 2017 University of Dayton

Undergraduate Research Needs: Faculty-Librarian Collaboration To Improve Information Literacy In Policy Papers, Michelle C. Pautz, Heidi Gauder

Heidi Gauder

To improve the quality of semester-long policy projects of upper-division political science students, a faculty member and research librarian collaborated to reframe the assignment in hopes of improving students’ research skills and information literacy, revising the traditional one-way model of faculty sending students to the library to get information. The outcomes over the course of two semesters have been promising. Citations in two sets of student papers showed a remarkable increase in the number and quality of sources used. This suggests that when faculty work with librarians throughout the semester, such collaboration can improve students’ information literacy and thus their ...

Academic Blasphemy: Providing Access To Textbooks In The Library, Heidi Blackburn, Tammi Owens 2017 University of Nebraska at Omaha

Academic Blasphemy: Providing Access To Textbooks In The Library, Heidi Blackburn, Tammi Owens

Heidi Blackburn

As textbook prices and tuition continue to soar, academic libraries offering textbooks as part of their circulating or reserves collections are valuable contributors to student recruitment and retention. Students need affordable and convenient access to textbooks for reasons including delayed financial aid, personal economic hardships, and just-in-time use. Textbooks at the library can fill those needs. Criss Library’s Summer 2017 Textbook Reserves Pilot Project brought together a team from several departments across campus, selected textbooks for a small number of general education courses, and marketed the program to our student success outreach partners. The goal of the project was ...

Open Access Week Seeks To Address “Textbook Crisis”, Gauri Mangala

Open Access Week at Gettysburg College

Jay Hauser ‘19 spent $391.43 for a single course’s materials during his first semester at Gettysburg College.

“I had a class where we read classical text of [political] philosophy. But only sections of each text. But we had to buy the books. No one ever tried to bring in open source online copies of them and the professor did not provide them. Instead we spent a lot of money on like twentyish books and only used parts of them.”

In fact, a 2016 analysis conducted by College Board found that the price of books and supplies for a ...

Eye Movement Desensitization And Reprocessing: A New Therapy For The Treatment Of Dissociative Identity Disorder, 2017 Brigham Young University

Eye Movement Desensitization And Reprocessing: A New Therapy For The Treatment Of Dissociative Identity Disorder

Intuition: The BYU Undergraduate Journal in Psychology

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is a new type of therapy that has been shown to be helpful in the treatment of various psychological disorders. Some of these include body dismorphic disorder, phobias, low selfesteem, and chronic phantom limb pain (Brown, McGoUrick, & Buchanan, 1997; ]onghl & Broeke, 1998; Maxwell 2003; Schneider, Hofmann, Rost, & Shapiro, 2008). In addition, because EMDR has been found to be specifically helpful in the treatment of anxiety based disorders like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD ), it could also aid in the treatment of dissociative identity disorder (DID). EMD R may help to quickly integrate disturbing memories that cause personality fragmentation; however, further research should be conducted in order to fully establish this hypothesis.


The Long-Term Effects Of Short-Term Psychotherapy On Depression: A Review Of The Literature, 2017 Brigham Young University

The Long-Term Effects Of Short-Term Psychotherapy On Depression: A Review Of The Literature

Intuition: The BYU Undergraduate Journal in Psychology

As depression is one of the most prevalent challenges to mental health today, there is a need for still farther research in this subject that has already received so much attention. There is a particular need for longitudinal studies of depression to determine the efficacy of psychotherapy as treatment. Additionally, there is a promising possibility for research into brief periods of treatment. Some of the psychotherapy literature focusing on the overlap of these two fields is examined. While many studies indicate that therapy brings about a decrease in depression symptoms, which is then maintained for as long as two years ...
