Healing Racial Injustice With Mindfulness Research, Training, & Practice, 2022 Lesley University
Healing Racial Injustice With Mindfulness Research, Training, & Practice, Danielle "Danae" Laura
Mindfulness Studies Theses
This thesis offers a collection of authors and studies in support of improved research, training, and practice connecting mindfulness with racial justice through intergroup applications. The paper identifies barriers at work (e.g., colorblindness, spiritual bypass, white fragility, and implicit bias) in contemplative science, Western Buddhist communities, and secular mindfulness centers, which block the sizeable contributions possible in studying the intergroup application of mindfulness practice—specifically Lovingkindness Meditation, among others—when used as an intervention with anti-racist aims. Through secondary qualitative research, I reviewed six key works from Black authors on mindfulness and race, as well as six sample studies ...
Assessing Unstabilized Approaches: A Phenomenology Study Of The Risk Perceptions And Decision-Making Thought Process Of Collegiate Aviation Pilots, 2022 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

Aspects Of Personality Involved In Persistence, Makayla Reynolds, Johnna Brown, Reganne Miller, Daisy Pratt, Madison Cornelius, Gregory Corso
The purpose for this study was to measure characteristics of personality and their individual effects on persistence. Participants were required to solve, solvable and unsolvable anagrams. The operational definition of persistence was the amount of time a participant spent solving the anagrams. The personality aspects being examined in this study included Narcissism, Explanatory Style, Personal Achievement, Goal Orientation/Achievement, and Aspects of Motivation. The study began by asking each participant which type of media they preferred most (paper or computer). Then participants were randomly assigned to receive the anagrams in the paper or computer format first. Through counterbalancing, all participants ...
Facial Expressions And Emotion Labels Are Separate Initiators Of Trait Inferences From The Face, 2021 Central Washington University
Facial Expressions And Emotion Labels Are Separate Initiators Of Trait Inferences From The Face, Anthony Stahelski, Amber Anderson, Nicholas Browitt, Mary Radeke
All Faculty Scholarship for the College of the Sciences
Facial inferencing research began with an inadvertent confound. The initial work by Paul Ekman and Wallace Friesen identified the six now-classic facial expressions by the emotion labels chosen by most participants: anger, disgust, fear, happiness, sadness, and surprise. These labels have been used by most of the published facial inference research studies over the last 50 years. However, not all participants in these studies labeled the expressions with the same emotions. For example, that some participants labeled scowling faces as disgusted rather than angry was seen in very early research by Silvan Tomkins and Robert McCarty. Given that the same ...
Primacy And Recency Effects On Position Error In Short-Term Memory Recall, 2021 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
Primacy And Recency Effects On Position Error In Short-Term Memory Recall, Weerachet Sinlapanuntakul, Kelly Harris, Brittany S. Wesley
Beyond: Undergraduate Research Journal
Position error is the most common error in serial recall of short-term memory, especially when environment, language, or similarity factors are presented. Previous studies demonstrate some support for the serial recall resulting in less error-prone for the first and last positions than the middle positions. This study investigates the accuracy of recalling letters and their positions when given a random sequence with minimal to no external factors. The significant predictors influencing position error were the primacy and recency effects. Participants completed a 20-trial experiment on the CogLab Experimental Control Software, which presented a series of letters one at a time ...
Improving Stress Management For Female College Students, 2021 California State University, Monterey Bay
Improving Stress Management For Female College Students, Kelsey Acosta
Capstone Projects and Master's Theses
Although many college students report feeling stress, women may have a unique perspective and experience regarding stress. Gilligan's theory states that women consider their relationships when considering decisions. This decision-making process can create an added layer of the already existing academic stressors that women face. Stress management techniques that acknowledge the unique stressors that women face are essential to improve mental health and provide an optimal college experience.

Passengers’ Perceptions On The Use Of Biometrics At Airports: A Statistical Model Of The Extended Theory Of Planned Behavior, 2021 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
Passengers’ Perceptions On The Use Of Biometrics At Airports: A Statistical Model Of The Extended Theory Of Planned Behavior, Kabir Kasim, Scott R. Winter, Dahai Liu, Joseph Keebler, Tyler Spence
This study reviewed the factors which influence passengers’ behavioral intentions on using biometrics at airports. The theory of planned behavior (TPB) served as the theoretical foundation and included perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use. The study also examined the effect of passengers’ privacy concerns on their behavioral intentions and assessed the moderating influence of privacy on the influencing factors. Following a quantitative method, 689 participants responded to an online survey while data analysis was conducted using structural equation modeling (SEM). Attitudes and subjective norms were found to significantly influence passengers’ behavioral intentions to use biometrics. However, perceived behavioral control ...

The Art Of Breaking Up: Ending Romantic Relationships, 2021 University of South Dakota
The Art Of Breaking Up: Ending Romantic Relationships, Emma Salzwedel
This thesis reviews research on the most difficult aspect of dating: the breakup. The process of ending a romantic relationship follows a particular pattern which begins when problems begin to arise in the partnership and ends when both individuals have accepted the breakup and received closure. Using various peer-reviewed studies, the literature review deliberates the common predictors of a breakup, common methods of breaking up (and how each is perceived by the other person), common reactions to the breakup based on gender, and finally, the aftermath of the breakup. It is determined that personal and individual relationship factors ultimately decide ...

Our systematic literature review synthe-sizes gray literature (white papers, news articles, and blog posts) in addition to formal (published) litera-ture. This methodology closes the gap between academic research and professional practice and aids in providing timely, practical insights related to cybersecurity and safety in virtual care environments ...
Examining Therapist Experience With Resistant Clients, 2021 National Louis University
Examining Therapist Experience With Resistant Clients, Elisha Ibebunjo
This qualitative phenomenological study involved an exploration of the lived experiences of 10 licensed therapists with substantial encounters with resistant clients. The phenomenon under investigation is relevant to those working in the mental health industry because resistance in psychotherapy is a common challenge. It is not a matter of if a therapist will encounter resistant clients, it is a matter of when. The goal in this qualitative study was to discover how the 10 participants, all of whom were experienced therapists, navigated through resistance; to identify the methods and procedures they used; and to compile their successful approaches and methods ...

Fostering Attachment In Romantic Relationships Through Creative Art Therapies, 2021 Lesley University
Fostering Attachment In Romantic Relationships Through Creative Art Therapies, Mary Hachey
Expressive Therapies Capstone Theses
Attachment theory examines the infant/caregiver’s relationship by the attachment style they develop in the first years of life. Over time, these same attachment styles affect adult romantic relationships. Bowlby defines four infant/children attachment styles as securely attached, anxious-ambivalent-insecurely attached, avoidant-insecurely attached, and disorganized-disoriented-insecurely attached. These four styles transferred into three main types for adults: secure, anxious-ambivalent, and avoidant. A couple’s relationship can become affected by personal values, behaviors, environmental situations, attachment styles, and beyond. This literature review discusses how couples behave, relate, and interact with one another based on their attachment styles and it also gives ...
Reiki For Recovery: Incorporating Japanese Health Practices To Increase Contemporary Resiliency In American Health, 2021 The University of San Francisco
Reiki For Recovery: Incorporating Japanese Health Practices To Increase Contemporary Resiliency In American Health, Leif Peterson
Master's Projects and Capstones
The Japanese health practice of Reiki attempts to maximize the latent ability of the human system to heal itself. The Reiki system, established over a century ago, combines multiple Asian health traditions, experimenting with practices that maximize the natural processes of the body to perform its own repairs. Reiki encourages healthy behaviors that balance the mind and body, return the human system to a lowered stress level, and allow for an optimal recovery state for the patient. This paper illustrates how this Japanese health-affirming method can be integrated and utilized within existing health and medical practices. An area that is ...
