Trauma Narratives With Inner City Youth: The Storiez Intervention, Meagan Corrado 2016 University of Pennsylvania

Trauma Narratives With Inner City Youth: The Storiez Intervention, Meagan Corrado

Doctorate in Social Work (DSW) Dissertations

Research shows that inner city youth are being exposed to trauma at alarming rates. Not only are youth exposed to one incident of trauma, they are often victims of complex trauma. Evaluation of best practices and commonly implemented interventions for youth reveals that creation of a trauma narrative is an integral element of treatment for this population. However, there is a gap in the literature as it relates to the definition of the trauma narrative and the process by which the narrative should be created. The Storiez intervention is presented as a tool for clinicians to implement with trauma-exposed, inner ...

College-Going Experiences Of Male Foster Youth Alumni Who Have Stopped-Out Of College, Felipe D. Longoria

Educational Administration: Theses, Dissertations, and Student Research

This qualitative research study examined how foster care experiences and masculinities influenced male foster youth alumni’s decision to go to college. The study also sought to understand the in-and-out-of-college factors that led participants to exit college prematurely. Five participants were each interviewed twice for data collection purposes. Findings from data analysis indicated that establishing and maintaining relationships in college were challenging and affected an already vulnerable population in their help-seeking behavior. Recommendations are offered for higher education professionals and areas for future research are noted.

The Effects Of Alcohol Consumption And Perception Of Normative Behaviors On Risky Sexual Behavior Among College Students, Tayler E. Pollock Ms.

School of Social Work Undergraduate Honors Theses

Recent research suggests that a majority of college students report having sex with multiple partners while practicing inconsistent condom use. These reports can be attributed to heavy drinking habits and perceived approval of behavior based on social interactions. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects that alcohol consumption and perceptions of peer behavior have on risky sexual behavior among college students. The present study recruited 50 students from the University of Arkansas to participate in an anonymous survey on their drinking habits, risky sexual behavior, and their perception of normative risky sexual behavior. Correlational analyses revealed a ...

Nutrition And Child Development, Danielle Cyr 2016 Goodwin College

Nutrition And Child Development, Danielle Cyr

Human Services Capstones

Proper nutrition in utero, infancy, and childhood is essential for a child’s normal physical, emotional, and cognitive growth. Nutritional deficiencies during this period can have severe and permanent effects on a child. Pregnant mothers who do not meet their own nutritional guidelines while carrying a child put themselves and their child at risk for a multitude of physical, mental, and emotional ailments that could render them unable to be successful academically and in employment as adults, unable to have fulfilling relationships, and experience a low sense of self-worth, and a low quality of life. These risks become greater if ...

The Perception Of Children In Chile: Burden Or Joy?, Christine W. Black 8016280219, Renata Forste

FHSS Mentored Research Conference

Globally, family values and behaviors have been shifting. This can be seen through a decrease in the universality of marriage, increased individualism, higher prevalence of divorce, older age at marriage and low birthrates with an increase in planned and controlled fertility. In Latin America, and specifically in Chile, these types of changes have been the most drastic. Data come from the ISSP where about 1,500 Chilean participants were asked a series of questions regarding family and gender attitudes as well as multiple demographic questions. This study looked at how these attitudes contributed to the perceived burden or joy of ...

An Exploration Of Service Needs For Adults Who Live With Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, Armush Salahadin

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Families who care for children with disabilities feel that supports are essential. However, little is known about the support needs of adults who live with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders, and few specialized services exist to meet their needs. This study examined caregivers' perceived support needs for their children when they grow into adults. Sixteen caregivers of children aged 10 years or older with FASD participated in telephone interviews. Participants provided responses to the following two questions: “What do caregivers need to help young adults live as independently as possible?” and “What services would help young adults live as independently as ...


Black Women Matter: Assessing Scales To Examine Minority Stress And Intersectional Microaggression, Vanessa N. Jones 2016 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

Black Women Matter: Assessing Scales To Examine Minority Stress And Intersectional Microaggression, Vanessa N. Jones

SEWSA 2016 Intersectionality in the New Millennium: An Assessment of Culture, Power, and Society

Greater understanding of minority stress and intersectional microaggression in African American women’s lived experience may contribute to improved health outcomes. To date, there is a scarcity of research exploring intersectionality and psychometric instruments. This review examines purpose, format, psychometric properties, and cultural applicability of seven measurement scales that assess gendered racism and sexual identity. Future research should include diverse samples of African American women to improve external validity. In clinical practice, measurement scales provide an objective tool to evaluate and differentiate minority stress.

Populations In Flux

DePaul Magazine

In June 2015, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees reported its highest level of displacement in recorded history: 59.5 million. Conflicts in Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe and Asia largely contribute to this staggering number, which is up 8.3 million from 2014. At DePaul, a new master’s degree in refugee and forced migration studies seeks to provide students with a hands-on, interdisciplinary approach to offering sustainable support to refugees.

Religiosity As A Protective Factor For Hazardous Drinking And Drug Use Among Sexual Minority And Heterosexual Women: Findings From The National Alcohol Survey, Laurie Drabble, Karen Trocki, Jamie Klinger

Laurie A. Drabble

Objective
Despite research documenting disparities in risk for alcohol-related problems among sexual minority women, few studies explore potential protective factors within this population. This study examines how religiosity may function as a protective or risk factor for alcohol-problems or other substance use among sexual minorities compared to heterosexuals.
Method
Data from 11,169 women who responded to sexual identity and sexual behavior questions from three population-based National Alcohol Survey waves (2000, 2005, 2010) were utilized for analyses of religiosity in relation to lifetime drinking, past year hazardous drinking, and past year drug use.
Results
Religiosity was significantly greater among exclusively ...

SEWSA 2016 Intersectionality in the New Millennium: An Assessment of Culture, Power, and Society

Background & Purpose: Many victims of sexual assault are rising to advocate for sexual assault prevention on college campuses, including Christian college campuses.

The purpose of this study was to increase the promotion of sexual assault awareness and prevention to students on the campus of Charleston Southern University.

Methods: A one-day seminar was offered in partnership with a community health organization on campus. Over 75 students ...
