The Reluctance Of African-Americans To Engage In Therapy, Monique Estelle Williamson 2014 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

The Reluctance Of African-Americans To Engage In Therapy, Monique Estelle Williamson

Open Access Theses and Dissertations from the College of Education and Human Sciences

This thesis is presented with the intent to explore the reasoning behind why members of the African-American culture are reluctant to enter into therapy. While the numbers of African-Americans who enter therapy continue to rise there are still persistent stigmas that make therapy a taboo option for solving problems. The goal of this qualitative study is to identify (1) if there truly is reluctance in the African-American community, (2) why the African-American community is reluctant, (3) what are the stigmas regarding mental health and therapy from the perspectives of American participants, and (4) what would help break the barriers to ...


Political Attitudes Towards The Bush Administration By Ethnic And Racial Groups, Amber Elzen, Mai Inoue, Julianna Koomen 2014 Minnesota State University, Mankato

Political Attitudes Towards The Bush Administration By Ethnic And Racial Groups, Amber Elzen, Mai Inoue, Julianna Koomen

Journal of Undergraduate Research at Minnesota State University, Mankato

This project analyzes the attitudes towards political statements according to a person’s ethnic and racial groups. The statements relate to the Bush administration and some of its policies. The different responses are categorized by age, gender and location as well. It is hypothesized that Caucasians would have a more positive outlook on the administration and its policies while racial and ethnic minorities would have a less positive response to the questions. Overall, a total of 219 participants were surveyed from Minnesota State University, Mankato and from communities of southeastern Minnesota through questions asking them to indicate their political attitudes ...


Critique Of The Appropriation On Black Culture By White Suburban Youth, Julie Lemley 2014 Minnesota State University, Mankato

Critique Of The Appropriation On Black Culture By White Suburban Youth, Julie Lemley

Journal of Undergraduate Research at Minnesota State University, Mankato

This critique is an examination of the appropriation of black culture by white suburban youth as being not only racist, but sexist. The primary view of this phenomenon is through the lens of hip hop culture and its commercialization by patriarchally dominated white corporations to increase profit by targeting the music to white suburban youth. This creates a distinct change within the critical content of the culture as an original context by replacing it with a focus that objectifies women, encourages violence and glamorizes the consumption of drugs and alcohol. In addition, there exists an intentional promotion of luxury consumerism ...


Challenges Facing Women In Us Higher Education: The Case Of Faculty Of Color, Fredah Mainah 2014 Part Time Instructor, Western Michigan University

Challenges Facing Women In Us Higher Education: The Case Of Faculty Of Color, Fredah Mainah

International Conference on African Development

Despite a milliard of challenges such as the slow pace of rising to the top, and the low compositional diversity in most university leadership, women of color are increasingly becoming visible in top positions in higher education. This paper investigated the phenomena of increasing numbers of women in top positions with the aim of debunking the myth of invisibility of black women in leadership positions in higher education. The findings indicate that although women in the US earn the majority of post-secondary degrees, with 26.4% of college presidents being women (4.5% of them being women of color), they ...


Stratification Within The Classroom: An Examination Of The Role Of Education In The Reproduction Of Labour Market Inequalities, Awish Aslam 2014 University of Western Ontario

Stratification Within The Classroom: An Examination Of The Role Of Education In The Reproduction Of Labour Market Inequalities, Awish Aslam

Sociological Imagination: Western’s Undergraduate Sociology Student Journal

The relationship between education and social mobility has been of interest to sociologists since the 1950s. This paper examines the role of education in the reproduction of labour market inequalities through the mechanisms of class, gender, and race-ethnicity. Both functionalist and conflict perspectives will be applied to explain the purpose of formal schooling, and signaling theory will be used to explain the significance of academic qualifications in the labour market. Ultimately, the examination of these mechanisms demonstrates how the hidden curriculum of schooling lends itself to the reproduction rather than the upward transmission of social mobility. The ruling class maintains ...

The Intersection Of Victim Race And Gender In Capital Cases: Evidence From The Capital Jury Project, Alicia A. Girgenti 2014 Northeastern University

The Intersection Of Victim Race And Gender In Capital Cases: Evidence From The Capital Jury Project, Alicia A. Girgenti

Criminology and Justice Policy Dissertations

For decades, the U.S. Supreme Court has struggled with issues surrounding the arbitrary and capricious imposition of the death penalty. One of the primary sources of concern surrounds race and the death penalty. Juries have broad discretion in their life and death decision and have the power to treat similarly-situated defendants differently because of the race of the defendant or the race of the victim. Previous research has shown that a defendant's race is only marginally related to whether a homicide results in a death sentence; however, the race of the victim does appear to be a significant ...

“Work What You Got”: Political Participation And Hiv-Positive Black Women’S Work To Restore Themselves And Their Communities, Monica L. Melton 2014 Spelman College

“Work What You Got”: Political Participation And Hiv-Positive Black Women’S Work To Restore Themselves And Their Communities, Monica L. Melton

Journal of Interdisciplinary Feminist Thought

Black women’s rates of HIV/AIDS infection have skyrocketed in comparison to other racial and ethnic groups over the past thirty years. Despite these rates, HIV-positive Black women’s perspectives are rarely sought regarding best practices to eradicate and interrupt HIV/AIDS among African American women, even though historically Black women have often proved phenomenal agents of social change. HIV-positive Black women’s activism has been understudied and input from the community in crisis has rarely been deemed as valuable to public health officials in HIV/AIDS prevention and interventions. Through the narratives of thirty HIV-positive Floridian Black women ...

Interpersonal Relationships And Social Support In Transitioning Narratives Of Black Transgender Women In Detroit, Louis F. Graham, Halley P. Crissman, Jack Tocco, Laura Hughes, Rachel C. Snow, Mark B. Padilla

Louis Graham

Social support has been shown to play a key role in overcoming adversities associated with marginalized identities, yet there is a dearth of information regarding the role of social networks in the gender transition process, particularly in ethnic minority transgender communities. This study uses life history narratives, and a modified grounded theory analysis, to explore the impact of interpersonal relationships on the gender transition process of Black transgender women in Detroit, Michigan. The following interpersonal interactions were significant: family reactions to self-recognition of femininity, coming out as gay prior to transgender identity disclosure, contact with an out transwoman, emotional and ...
