Factors Predicting Sustainability: A Correlational Study Of One Multi-Site Program, Meredith L. King Jensen
All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
Healthcare organizations invest significant economic, physical, and human resources to implement changes and expect sustained benefits for their investments in the long term. Yet, few studies have examined long-term sustainability and factors contributingto sustainability. The primary aim of the study was to gain a better understanding of sustainability and five factors (champions, leadership support, policy, resources, and training and education) that might predict long-term sustainability within the context of one Safe Patient Handling and Mobility (SPHM) program implemented in a large, nationwide system more than 7 years ago. The secondary aim was to examine the number of nursing staff injuries ...
Evidence Based Practices At A New York City Youth Justice Services Organization, 2020 CUNY John Jay College
Evidence Based Practices At A New York City Youth Justice Services Organization, Betsy Delissa Cespedes
There has been a national push to establish evidence-based juvenile criminal justice policies and practices that are focused on reducing the risk of recidivism for juvenile offenses. The reason for this push is rooted in the growing recidivism rates of juvenile offenders in the United States (Weber, Umpierre, & Bikchik, 2018). More than half of all juveniles who are on probation nationwide are rearrested, indicating that each juvenile offender faces equal likelihood of reoffending or not (Weber et al., 2018). Further, approximately 66% of juvenile offenders, or nearly seven out of 10 offenders, are rearrested within two years of their first ...
The Association Between Mandatory State Arrests And Intimiate Partner Homicides, 2020 Northeastern Illinois University
The Association Between Mandatory State Arrests And Intimiate Partner Homicides, Magdelene Thebaud
2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium
Battered women have had to deal with a great rise in violence once mandatory arrests were decided on their intimate partner. The determination of the police to arrest the abuser was not always made with their best intentions. The motivation to arrest the abusers would often stem from the pressure of liability. Often times the police racially profile the victims and the abusers which may result in a dual arrest or unwillingness for victims of domestic violence to contact the police. This study refines our current understanding of the certainty of arrest in relation to domestic violence occurring after the ...
And Lettuce Is Nonanimal: Toward A Positive Theory Of Voluntary Action, 2020 West Virginia University
And Lettuce Is Nonanimal: Toward A Positive Theory Of Voluntary Action, Roger A. Lohmann
Faculty & Staff Scholarship
Much recent conceptual and theoretical effort to identify and define the kinds of voluntary action that take place outside households, economic markets and governments has a consistent emphasis on negation: It seems to define these matters by what they are not: not for profit, or nonprofit, nongovernmental, unproductive, inefficient, examples of contract failure, market failure, government failure and more. This paper is a beginning effort to shift the emphasis to the positive and the describe and explain what voluntary action is and what it consists of. It proposes the beginnings of an economics of common goods production, and differentiates such ...
Digital Activism: How The Online Youth-Led Climate Movement Mobilizes Communities For Change, 2020 Gettysburg College
Digital Activism: How The Online Youth-Led Climate Movement Mobilizes Communities For Change, Emily G. Wielk
With the increasing prominence of online media, digital environments have allowed for new developments in establishing online social movements. Social media, in particular, offered a new way to generate knowledge amongst publics, facilitate dialogue, and build a coalition around the movement’s cause. The theoretical framework provided by the contributions of McLuhan, Castells, and Goffman allowed key strategies of community building and storytelling to emerge through the lens of the youth climate change movement. Digital ethnography was used to collect data on seven female youth climate activists through their public Twitter accounts to assess social media as a tool for ...
Does Diversity In Team Members’ Agreeableness Benefit Creative Teams?, 2020 Singapore Management University
Does Diversity In Team Members’ Agreeableness Benefit Creative Teams?, Sean Teck Hao Lee, Guihyun Park
Research Collection School of Social Sciences
Although deep-level diversity among team members are often discussed as important catalysts of team creativity, little is currently understood about the impact of diversity in team members’ personality on team creativity and team satisfaction. We propose that diversity in team members’ agreeableness would reduce the effectiveness of creative teams through its impact on team conflict experienced. To test our hypotheses, we recruited 93 student teams to participate in a laboratory study where each member had their personality traits assessed before engaging in a team creativity task. We found that diversity in team members’ agreeableness was positively associated with team task ...

The General Artificial Intellect, Ramon S. Diab
Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository
In passages of Marx’s Grundrisse known as the Fragment on Machines, Marx suggested that advanced capitalist development leads to the production of autonomous machines that replace labour-power in the direct production process. Autonomist Marxist interpretations of this text have emphasized that the proliferation of immaterial labour is the historical condition that is leading to a crisis in the measure of value based on labour-time and that will lead to a future communist mode of production. Further, Mario Tronti posited that as capitalist development unfolds, it subsumes both the state and society, a concept known as the ‘social factory thesis ...
Loss Of Self In Dissociation In Prostitution; Recovery Of Self In Connection To Horses: A Survivor's Journey, 2020 University of Rhode Island
Loss Of Self In Dissociation In Prostitution; Recovery Of Self In Connection To Horses: A Survivor's Journey, Sandra Norak
Dignity: A Journal on Sexual Exploitation and Violence
This narrative is about dissociation in the lives of women who have been exploited through prostitution. When we speak about prostitution, we do not speak often enough about the dissociation needed for women and girls to survive sexual exploitation. The author challenges the wisdom of governments such as Germany that legalize prostitution, treating it as a “job” and ignoring the violence and subsequent dissociation in women. The author describes her personal journey, explaining how women are traumatized even after the first commercial sex act, which is a sexual assault. They dissociate which makes their lives bearable, but they fail to ...
Internet Memes And Desensitization, 2020 University of Florida
Internet Memes And Desensitization, Barbara C. Sanchez
Pathways: A Journal of Humanistic and Social Inquiry
Internet memes (IMs) have been used as a visual form of online rhetoric since the early 2000s. With hundreds of thousands now in circulation, IMs have become a prominent method of communication across the Internet. In this essay, I analyze the characteristics that have made IMs a mainstay in online communication. Understanding the definitions and structures of IMs aid in explaining their online success, especially on social platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. I use these understandings as a basis from which to theorize how both the creative process in making IMs and the prominence of IMs that utilize images ...
Spatial And Non-Spatial Drivers For Design Thinking In Knowledge Ecosystems, 2020 Izmir University of Economics
Spatial And Non-Spatial Drivers For Design Thinking In Knowledge Ecosystems, Onur Mengi
Markets, Globalization & Development Review
The concept of knowledge ecosystems is an emerging arena to reconsider the design thinking processes from a perspective which comprises different levels of knowledge interaction, and how those are regulated by different dimensions. The issue of design thinking is the most relevant for creative industries emerging around creativity and knowledge and providing innovation, change and impact through interaction, however, existing research inadequately connects design thinking both to physical and non-physical dimensions of knowledge ecosystems. Despite knowledge interaction is vastly regarded as a face-to-face communication for design thinking at micro-scale, it appears and be proficient as it involves non-spatial drivers at ...
University Hackathons: Managerialism, Gamification, And The Foreclosure Of Creativity, 2020 Virginia Commonwealth University
University Hackathons: Managerialism, Gamification, And The Foreclosure Of Creativity, Anthony L. Clary
Theses and Dissertations
This research presents a generative critique of hackathon events held in the contemporary research university. Through the analysis of cultural imaginaries and embedded techno-political forms, it works toward an assessment of whether these events support, foreclose, or redirect ideas of the future that might otherwise challenge technocratic, accumulatory, and/or hierarchal organization. Informed by institutional histories and firsthand field research at events, dynamics of entrepreneurialism, gamification, and techno-solutionism are extrapolated and problematized. Ultimately, this research draws on a historical materialist approach to understanding how and why hackathon events have flourished in the university setting. Corroborating recent theories of platform capitalism ...

Navigating Cultures And Development: An Account Of A Female Peace Corps Volunteer In Morocco, 2019 Illinois State University
Navigating Cultures And Development: An Account Of A Female Peace Corps Volunteer In Morocco, Renee Palecek
Stevenson Center for Community and Economic Development to Stevenson Center for Community and Economic Development—Student Research
Little is known of how the “doers” of development may navigate regarding her community’s culture and her job in international development. This lack of knowledge leads to the erasure of experiences, felt both by the volunteer herself, as well as the community members she works with. Through autoethnographic methodology, and analysis, I retell my experiences and entanglements as a Peace Corps volunteer in Morocco with Moroccan institutions and culture, with my own identities and prior American socialization. I examine three questions: (1) How does the female PCV in Morocco make sense out of and create value from life events ...
Examining Racial & Ethnic Disparities In The Reach Of The Medicare Shared Savings Program, 2019 University of Nebraska Medical Center
Examining Racial & Ethnic Disparities In The Reach Of The Medicare Shared Savings Program, Lindsey Arneson
It is important to understand the quality of health care for racial and ethnic minorities covered under the largest U.S. government-run insurance program, Medicare, because the demographics of the U.S. are becoming older and more diverse. A new value-based program under Medicare is the Shared Savings Program (MSSP), which creates incentives to improve care quality and health outcomes for Medicare beneficiaries with a specific focus on increasing the provision of preventive care services. This capstone project aims to understand the representation of racial/ethnic minority Medicare beneficiaries, namely African Americans/Blacks and Hispanics/Latinxs, that receive care from ...
Behind Quality, There Is Equality: An Analysis Of Scientific Capital Accumulation In Social-Democratic Welfare Regimes, Olivier Bégin-Caouette
Comparative and International Education / Éducation Comparée et Internationale
Trade-offs between quality and equality are at the forefront of multiple debates in higher education, and one conceptual tool to approach societies’ adjustment in resolving these trade-offs is the welfare regime typology. Relying on the theory of academic capitalism and using research production as a proxy for quality in higher education, this study analyses how social-democratic welfare regimes resolve the trade-off between comparatively high levels of academic research production, access to higher education and equal citizens’ living conditions. Interviews with 56 system actors suggest that equality is perceived to contribute to academic freedom, public investments in research and the ...
Surveillance And The Self: Understanding Privacy And Identity In Digital Environments, 2019 Gettysburg College
Surveillance And The Self: Understanding Privacy And Identity In Digital Environments, Alecea Ritter Standlee
The widespread use of internet enabled devices among contemporary US adults has given rise to a series of questions about issues of identity, privacy and group behaviors. The increasing use of algorithmic systems in social media and the attendant privacy concerns among users may also contribute to increased levels of strategic management of identity among users. In order to contribute to this discussion, this project examines perceptions and practices of privacy and self-representation in digital spaces among college age adults 18-24. This project utilizes semi-structured interview data collected with college students in the Eastern United States and focuses on both ...
In Search Of Psychiatric Kinds: Natural Kinds And Natural Classification In Psychiatry, 2019 The University of Western Ontario
In Search Of Psychiatric Kinds: Natural Kinds And Natural Classification In Psychiatry, Nicholas Slothouber
Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository
In recent years both philosophers and scientists have asked whether or not our current kinds of mental disorder—e.g., schizophrenia, depression, bipolar disorder—are natural kinds; and, moreover, whether or not the search for natural kinds of mental disorder is a realistic desideratum for psychiatry. In this dissertation I clarify the sense in which a kind can be said to be “natural” or “real” and argue that, despite a few notable exceptions, kinds of mental disorder cannot be considered natural kinds. Furthermore, I contend that psychopathological phenomena do not cluster together into kinds in the way that paradigmatic natural ...
Can The Lifeworld Save Us From Neoliberal Governmentality? Social Work, Critical Theory, And Habermas, 2019 Portland State University
Can The Lifeworld Save Us From Neoliberal Governmentality? Social Work, Critical Theory, And Habermas, Stephanie A. Bryson
Two years have passed since the 2016 election of Donald J. Trump, and U.S. social work is revisiting its radical stirrings and grappling with its conservative moorings. In this paper, I will argue that as U.S. social work appraises the adequacy of its intellectual leaders, the cultural relevance of its practice models, and its stance toward the Enlightenment ideals of reason, truth, and justice, it might usefully re-examine its relationship to the critical theory legacy of the Frankfurt School, especially the thinking of Jürgen Habermas. My goal is in this essay is to suggest ways in which Habermasian ...
