Posttraumatic Stress Disorder In Maltreated Multiracial Youth, Harpreet Kaur 2014 University of Nevada, Las Vegas

Posttraumatic Stress Disorder In Maltreated Multiracial Youth, Harpreet Kaur

UNLV Theses/Dissertations/Professional Papers/Capstones

Lemos-Miller and Kearney (2006) first identified depression as a meditator of (1) dissociation and posttraumatic cognitions and (2) PTSD in maltreated children. In addition, they found that African American status weakened the mediating relationship, whereas multiracial status strengthened the mediating relationship. Multiracial youth in Lemos-Miller and Kearney's study experienced a stronger relationship between depression and PTSD than other ethnic groups.

The present study evaluated the Lemos-Miller and Kearney (2006) model of PTSD among a larger sample of multiracial youth. The present study sought to identify whether the Lemos-Miller and Kearney (2006) finding regarding multiracial youth could be replicated. The ...


An Analogue Study Of The Mechanism Of Change In Functional Analytic Psychotherapy, Cristal Elizabeth Weeks 2014 University of Wisconsin Milwaukee

An Analogue Study Of The Mechanism Of Change In Functional Analytic Psychotherapy, Cristal Elizabeth Weeks

Theses and Dissertations

The study attempted to isolate the mechanism of change of Functional Analytic Psychotherapy (FAP) using non-clinical participants engaged in stable, cohabitating romantic relationships. Employing an analogue, concurrent, multiple-baseline A/A+B design, the A phase controlled for attendance, self-monitoring, instructions for increased engagement in interpersonal behaviors, and ongoing review of interpersonal behaviors. The A+B phase added a manualized FAP interaction emphasizing therapist contingent responding to in-vivo target behaviors. In addition, daily couple interactions were tracked using the Weeks Interpersonal Interaction Inventory (WIII). Targeted behaviors appeared to increase after introducing the manualized FAP interaction. Limitations and future considerations were also ...


Understanding The Role Of Trust In Cooperation With Natural Resources Institutions, Joseph A. Hamm 2014 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Understanding The Role Of Trust In Cooperation With Natural Resources Institutions, Joseph A. Hamm

Theses, Dissertations, and Student Research: Department of Psychology

This dissertation investigates the role of trust in predicting cooperation with a natural resources management institution. It begins with an exploration of the legal landscape against which the relationship between land owners and natural resources management institutions is contextualized, presents a review of the often ostensibly disparate trust literature and a framework for its integration, and proposes and tests a model of trust and cooperation in the natural resources context. The results provide mixed support for the model as proposed but confirm the importance of trust in this context and suggest implications for policy, especially the potential importance of increasing ...


Traditional Masculinity & Advertising Image Approval, Danielle W. Kailing, Peggy Cantrell PhD 2014 East Tennessee State University

Traditional Masculinity & Advertising Image Approval, Danielle W. Kailing, Peggy Cantrell Phd

Undergraduate Honors Theses

This project investigates the relationship between adherence to traditional masculinity and approval of selected advertising images. Because traditional masculinity includes characteristics supportive of aggression and dominance; I hypothesize that an increase in adherence to traditional masculinity will correlate with approval of the violence found in some print advertisements. Participants include 259 men who completed an anonymous, online, survey. Adherence to masculinity is measured using the Male Role Norm Inventory-Revised (MRNI-R) (Levant, et. al, 2007). Each picture is scored on a 5-point Likert Scale. As hypothesized, an increase in total MRNI-R score, is significantly correlated with an increase in the approval ...

Attachment To Therapist And Treatment Outcome Among Foster Youth, Tzipporah Dang, Rosana M. Aguilar, Saralyn C. Ruff, June Madsen Clausen

Creative Activity and Research Day - CARD

Compared to non-foster youth, children in foster care are at increased risk for emotional and behavioral problems due to their experienced maltreatment, separation and loss, and foster care system instability. Research with adults has shown that relationship elements, such as alliance in therapy and empathy, are positively associated with patient progress and secure attachment to the therapist. The current study evaluates the impact of Relationship Based Therapy provided to current or former foster youth. Analysis of semi-structured telephone interviews with therapists indicated a significant change in depression, anxiety, aggression or violence as the perpetrator, and problems in relationship with people ...


The Influence Of Moral Concerns On Memory For Individuals And Their Actions, Amy Pekkala, Brittney Aresta, Emmanuel Te, Sarah Levinson, Alec Starzinski, Marisa Knight 2014 University of San Francisco

The Influence Of Moral Concerns On Memory For Individuals And Their Actions, Amy Pekkala, Brittney Aresta, Emmanuel Te, Sarah Levinson, Alec Starzinski, Marisa Knight

Creative Activity and Research Day - CARD

We explore how learning about individual behaviors that violate or uphold moral norms impacts our ability to recognize individuals who engage in them. We also explore how behaviors representing five moral foundations influence facial recognition differently according to whether the behavior relates to moral foundations that are typically emphasized by liberals (harm/fairness) or by conservatives (loyalty/authority/purity). We observed higher associative memory for individuals linked with behaviors that violated liberal principles than for individuals linked with behaviors that violated conservative principles. In addition, we examined the contribution of implicit processes in shaping early impressions and judgments of individuals.
