Overparenting And Emerging Adults' Mental Health: The Mediating Role Of Emotional Distress Tolerance, 2017 University of Southern Mississippi
Overparenting And Emerging Adults' Mental Health: The Mediating Role Of Emotional Distress Tolerance, Christopher Michael Perez
Overparenting is a type of parental control that features intense parental involvement, which is negatively associated with the development of age-appropriate autonomous behavior in children and emerging adults. To this point, overparenting has been linked to poor mental health in young children (Bayer, Sanson, & Hemphill, 2006; Gar & Hudson, 2008), as well as in emerging adults (LeMoyne & Buchanan, 2011; Segrin, Woszidlo, Givertz, & Montgomery, 2013). The emerging adult population has continued to be one of interest across recent studies concerning mental health, given the unique emotional and behavioral changes that arise during this stage of development. Emotional distress tolerance (DT), defined as the ability to withstand negative emotional states (Anestis et al., 2012; Simons & Gaher, 2005), has not yet been established as a construct in relation to overparenting. The present study examined the direct role of overparenting in relation to mental health symptoms in emerging adults and explored emotional DT as a mediator of this relationship. College student participants (N = 360) completed a demographic questionnaire ...
Marbles And Machiavelli: The Role Of Game Play In Children's Social Development, 2017 Utah State University
Marbles And Machiavelli: The Role Of Game Play In Children's Social Development, David F. Lancy, M. Annette Grove
SSWA Faculty Publications
The authors review several case studies of children engaged in rule-governed play and conclude that the process of learning rules—and of breaking them and making new ones—promotes what they call gamesmanship. They link the development of gamesmanship to the theory of Machiavellian intelligence, which considers social interaction primary in the evolution of human intelligence. They also question the benefits of adult-managed child play and assess the impact it may have on the ability of children to develop gamesmanship.
Accounting For Variability In Mother-Child Play, 2017 Utah State University
Accounting For Variability In Mother-Child Play, David F. Lancy
SSWA Faculty Publications
This paper highlights contrasting perspectives in the study of mother-child play. One contrast emerges as we look at the phenomenon using the lens offered by anthropology as opposed to the more commonly used lens of psychology. A second contrast is apparent from on-the-ground descriptions of childhood in the ethnographic record compared to observations of children in the upper strata of modern society. Psychologists and those public agents who adopt their perspective see mother-child play—from infancy—as both necessary for normal development and an unlimited good. Its self-evident value should be impressed upon those who are as yet, unenlightened. Anthropologists ...
Do #Blacklivesmatter? Implicit Bias, Institutional Racism And Fear Of The Black Body, 2017 University of Central Florida
Do #Blacklivesmatter? Implicit Bias, Institutional Racism And Fear Of The Black Body, Reshawna L. Chapple, George A. Jacinto, Tameca N. Harris-Jackson, Michelle Vance
Ralph Bunche Journal of Public Affairs
The paper implores a brief cultural analysis to examine racial tensions and injustices in the U.S. that have led to the Black Lives Matter movement. Specifically, implicit bias is of primary focus as the authors examine how bias of the Black male frames the “Black-as-criminal” mentality, as well as connotes fear of the Black male body. The authors further discuss how fear of the Black face and Black male body has led to discriminatory actions such as institutional racism and, in the most vehement yet consistent cases, the killing of unarmed Black men and women. Cases such as Freddie ...
Race And Justice Outcomes: Contextualizing Racial Discrimination And Ferguson, 2017 Montclair State University
Race And Justice Outcomes: Contextualizing Racial Discrimination And Ferguson, Jason M. Williams
Ralph Bunche Journal of Public Affairs
While scores of literature may hint at the tumultuous relationship between the criminal justice system and Blacks, such literature, however, fail to assess, comprehensively, the intersectional purpose of present criminal justice processes and race. This paper will examine contemporary applications of justice along racial lines. It is argued that current justice outcomes are advantageous to the status quo. It is no secret that the American system of justice has a race problem; however, if the goal is to administer justice then, as this paper argues, the current system needs to be seriously examined and rebuilt. The paper also argues that ...

Black Girlhood: Reshaping The Identity And Improving The Well-Being Of African American Girls, Karla La'toya Sapp Ed.D
National Youth-At-Risk Conference Savannah
The identity and overall well-being of African American girls tends to be influenced, both positively and negatively, by the following factors: mass media, gender roles, and environmental factors. Black Girlhood examines the identity development of African American girls utilizing the relational developmental systems theory framework. Black Girlhood also explores the role that mass media, gender roles, and environmental factors shape how African American girls view themselves, while providing interventions that can allow the reshaping of their identity and improvement in their overall well-being.

Making Common Causes: Crises, Conflict, Creation, Conversations: Offerings From The Biennial Alecc Conference Queen’S University, Kingston 2016, Jenny Kerber, Astrida Neimanis, Pamela Banting, Tania Aguila-Way, Ron Benner, Mick Smith, Adeline Johns-Putra, Peter C. Van Wyck
At ALECC’s biennial gathering at Queen’s University in June 2016, participants came together to explore the possibilities of “making common causes” from a host of angles, yet all were anchored in an acknowledgement of the diverse more-than-human relationships that make up our common worlds. The following collection of short essays, authored by some of the gathering’s keynote speakers, explores specific aspects of making common causes. In this special section of The Goose, we deliberately invoke the plural of conversation. We understand the effort to make common causes as a process, rather than a “one and done” act ...
The Mental Health Of Black Men: A Problem Of Perception, 2017 Clark Atlanta University
The Mental Health Of Black Men: A Problem Of Perception, Narviar C. Calloway
Black men in our society face enormous challenges. Some of these challenges stem from social attitudes and perceptions about African American men, especially as these perceptions impact education, poverty, employment, and health-related problems. Society's response to social stigma, the treatment of social and mental problems and racism are all evident in African Americans' daily relationships with others. Each of these challenges individually can be devastating; collectively, they become overwhelming and catastrophic. It is this author's supposition that the mechanisms that undergrid the challenges of Black men are embedded in race, ethnicity and culture, and that the pervasiveness and ...
Control, Punish, And Conquer: U.S. Public Schools' Attempt To Control Black Males, 2017 Unit 4 School District, Champaign, IL
Control, Punish, And Conquer: U.S. Public Schools' Attempt To Control Black Males, Terence Fitzgerald
Policies and procedures that govern public education in the United States have produced a system of control and punishment that impedes the education of Black males. The historical antecedents of this system are reflected in various forms of racism, from denying education to enslaved Blacks through legal segregation in schools during the post-Civil War period. This study reviews the treatment of Black male children attending public schools in the United States. It focuses on contemporary policies and procedures related to special education, alternative schooling, and the practice of "medicating" children with behavioral difficulties to demonstrate how covert forms of racism ...
Twenty-Seven Years Of Success And Failure At Morehouse, 2017 Morehouse College
Twenty-Seven Years Of Success And Failure At Morehouse, Benjamin E. Mays
I will always remember the first time I met Dr. Benjamin Mays. It was an experience that I will always remember, l had the pleasure of meeting him during a wedding reception several years after his retirement as President of Morehouse College. Unfortunately, I matriculated at Morehouse College the year after Dr. Mays retired and did not have the opportunity of experiencing his mentoring firsthand. However, throughout my years at Morehouse, I developed a deep appreciation for Dr. Mays through his writings and speeches. His works and ideology have had a profound impact upon my life.
Business, Philanthropy And Higher Education, 2017 AT&T Foundation
Business, Philanthropy And Higher Education, Milton Little
AT&T is conspicuous by its presence in support of the post-secondary education of youth especially those of diverse backgrounds. Much, though certainly not all, of this support is provided through grants to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), majority colleges and universities and to the United Negro College Fund. AT&T supports HBCUs for reasons not dissimilar to those of other donors. Before I describe them, let me place our philanthropy and support for higher education in a broader context framed by the unique role played by corporate philanthropy and the special niche ATST has tried to carve among ...
Benjamin Elijah Mays: A Perspective, 2017 The Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation
Benjamin Elijah Mays: A Perspective, Richard O. Hope
I recall attending chapel five times a week and a sixth day on Sunday, since I was in the Sunday Morning Choir, Pop Dansby sat in the balcony with his chart of the seating arrangement and checked off those who were not present. As you progressed through the years from freshman to senior, your seating was moved closer to the podium.
As a freshman, coming by train from Nashville, Tennessee, I found my first day at Morehouse memorable. My first task after getting off the train was to find a taxi to the college, and, growing up in the segregated ...
Mays Transcendent And Transcending Mays, 2017 Howard University
Mays Transcendent And Transcending Mays, Herman F. Bostick
The famous African American theologian and Morehouse alumnus, Howard Thurman, has written that:
The time and place of a man's life on earth are the time and place of his body, but the meaning and significance of his life is as vast and far-reaching as his gifts, his times and the passionate commitment of all his powers can make it (Thurman, 1979:1). The time of life on this earth for Benjamin Elijah Mays was the years between 1894 and 1984. The places of his life were several because he traveled frequently and widely. But the places most closely ...
A Sociology Of Immanence And Transcendence: Reflections On The Legacy Of Benjamin Mays, 2017 Education and Urban Studies Harvard University
A Sociology Of Immanence And Transcendence: Reflections On The Legacy Of Benjamin Mays, Charles V. Willie
In 1963, about a generation ago, sociologists in America began to examine and reexamine their concepts of caste, class and status. Dennis Wrong presented a paper at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association in which he stated that "Historically, biological continuity has been the major means of preserving the internal solidarity and the distinctive ethos of class from generation to generation..." (Wrong, 1969:518). Wrong mentioned George Orwell's observation, however, that new sets of classes are emerging that are not recruited by the intergenerational transmissions of privilege through the family and whose cohesion does not depend on ...
Reflections On A Rebel's Journey, 2017 Dillard University
Reflections On A Rebel's Journey, Samuel Dubois Cook
I unabashedly revered Bennie Mays for his genuine contributions, strength of character, gifts of mind, vision, ability to grow and courage to change, creative restlessness and zest for life, stubborn moral courage, prophetic imagination, deep commitment to social justice, boundless energy and eagerness to tackle new tasks, devotion to academic excellence, capacity for independence of thought and critical judgment, single-minded commitment to the mot precious and enduring values of the human enterprise, and life-long romance with the world of higher possibilities. He was a wise man. His spirit was indomitable, his will inexhaustible.
Dr. Mays' Views Of A Changing World, 2017 The International Affairs Center Howard University
Dr. Mays' Views Of A Changing World, Julius E. Coles
While most people will remember Dr. Benjamin E. Mays as the President of Morehouse College for 27 years and as a former President of the Atlanta Board of Education, he was also an internationalist with strong views of how Christian values might govern the relations between man and nations. Many of his international insights were gained while he was serving as the Dean of Howard University's School of Religion from 1934 to 1940. As Dean, he began to travel abroad to attend world conferences in Europe and India. These travels broadened his perspective of the issues of racism abroad ...
Benjamin E. Mays' Vision Of Education, 2017 Morehouse College
Benjamin E. Mays' Vision Of Education, Walter E. Massey
This Symposium is very timely in a number of ways. It is an occasion for us to think through again the role of the Historically Black Colleges and Universities, to reflect on what they have contributed in the past, but perhaps more important, to begin to plan for the role they will play in the United States in the future. That role may be somewhat different from the one that they have played in the past. Certainly, the nation's changing attitudes towards race, gender and affirmative action at this time provides a certain urgency to the task of establishing ...
Benjamin Mays And Morehouse College, 2017 Xavier University
Benjamin Mays And Morehouse College, Dereck J. Rovaris
Morehouse Before Mays. In 1867, Richard C. Coulter, an Augusta, Georgia, resident and former slave, Reverent Edmund Turney, educator of freedmen and organizer of the National Theological Institute in Washington, D.C., and William Jefferson White, an Augusta Baptist minister and cabinetmaker, founded the Augusta Institute (Jones, 1967). With educating the recently emancipated Negroes as their mission, they started a campaign that was highly unpopular in the South. In addition to operating with inadequate facilities during its early years, the Institute also had to deal with protests from the recently formed Ku Klux Klan (Brawley, 1970 1917).
Slow Journalism? Ethnography As A Means Of Understanding Religious Social Activism, 2017 University of Redlands
Slow Journalism? Ethnography As A Means Of Understanding Religious Social Activism, James V. Spickard
This article, originally presented as a talk at Harvard University's Weatherhead Center, poses the question: What makes ethnography more than just slow journalism in the study of religion? It traces this concern to the political subtext of ethnography's origins in both sociology and anthropology: as an aid to imperial &/or middle-class domination of other peoples. Having discovered this, anthropologists (and a few sociologists) have changed their approach to their interview partners (no longer 'subjects'). This requires several epistemological moves, including a willingness to acknowledge our own projections about our research partners and to recognize that we are as ...
