Assuming Elder Care Responsibility: Am I A Caregiver?, Lindsey E. Wylie, Eve M. Brank Dec 2009

Assuming Elder Care Responsibility: Am I A Caregiver?, Lindsey E. Wylie, Eve M. Brank

Faculty Publications, Department of Psychology

Caregivers of the elderly face conflicting legal demands; they must make certain the elder’s needs are being met while not forcing undesired care on an adult capable of informed decisions. This dichotomy may be a reason a large volume of reported elder abuse derives from unintentional neglect on behalf of informal familial caregivers. The current research examines this possibility with exploratory interviews and an experiment. The interviews between elders and their family (30 dyads) revealed that many did not intend for the living arrangements to become permanent, and the nonelders were largely unprepared for the magnitude of changes and ...

A Comparison Of Two Theoretical Models Of Procedural Justice In The Context Of Child Protection Proceedings, Twila Wingrove Jul 2009

A Comparison Of Two Theoretical Models Of Procedural Justice In The Context Of Child Protection Proceedings, Twila Wingrove

Theses, Dissertations, and Student Research: Department of Psychology

In this study, the researcher tested two theoretical models of justice in the context of child protection proceedings. Participants read a case file describing a hypothetical child neglect case. The file included the court petition, the caseworker’s court report, a summary of the protective custody hearing, and the judge’s final order. Within the case file, the researcher manipulated four variables: procedural treatment, interpersonal treatment, severity of child neglect, and assigned role (judge or parent). Results of confirmatory factor analyses suggested that a four-factor model of justice judgments best fit the data. Consistent with the organizational justice approach (Colquitt ...


Juveniles’ Knowledge Of The Court Process: Results From Instruction From An Electronic Source, Christine Driver, Eve M. Brank Jul 2009

Juveniles’ Knowledge Of The Court Process: Results From Instruction From An Electronic Source, Christine Driver, Eve M. Brank

Faculty Publications, Department of Psychology

Our study first determined what juveniles know about the juvenile court process. Second, it evaluated a DVD designed to be a systematic and simple way to improve this knowledge. A pre- and post-test design was used with two pilot samples and two samples from the population of interest. A sample from a juvenile detention center (n = 118) was the focus of this study. Initial knowledge of the court process was quite low for the detention sample (pretest M = 64.0%, SD = 14.2%). All samples experienced a significant improvement of knowledge after watching the DVD. Youth in the detention sample ...


Space Law In The Age Of The International Space Station, Frans Von Der Dunk Jun 2009

Space Law In The Age Of The International Space Station, Frans Von Der Dunk

Space, Cyber, and Telecommunications Law Program Faculty Publications

This article focuses on the special context where humans from various nations work and live together in one orbiting laboratory, the International Space Station (ISS), and the legal rules pertinent to those activities. This essentially concerns the application of an existing body of international treaties on space and space activities to the ISS, as well as the special legal framework that has been established to deal with the various ramifications of this very international operating environment. Within that context moreover, the specific European parameters stemming from the fact that the European Space Agency (ESA) serves as the vehicle for the ...


A European “Equivalent” To United States Export Controls: European Law On The Control Of International Trade In Dual-Use Space Technologies, Frans Von Der Dunk May 2009

A European “Equivalent” To United States Export Controls: European Law On The Control Of International Trade In Dual-Use Space Technologies, Frans Von Der Dunk

Space, Cyber, and Telecommunications Law Program Faculty Publications

Abstract This article analyzes the system developed within Europe, more precisely within the European Union through European Community law, to address the security-sensitive issues involved in the export of hardware, software, and knowledge for the purpose of space activities and major space applications. The subject is introduced with reference to the far better known export control developments within the United States, such as those concerning International Traffic in Arms Regulations, and the international understandings under the Missile Technology Control Regime and Wassenaar Arrangement. European Community Regulations for export controls provide for a complex system of balances between national sovereignty and ...

A Survery Of Western United States Instream Flow Programs And The Policies That Protect A River's Ecosystem, Kyle Jackson Apr 2009

A Survery Of Western United States Instream Flow Programs And The Policies That Protect A River's Ecosystem, Kyle Jackson

Environmental Studies Undergraduate Student Theses

The Western United States can best be described as a vast, varying land, with the high plains to the east and the jagged horizons of Rockies to the west. However there is one common trait shared by these states: the lack of water resources. With the continued development of this land, the fact that water is scarce is becoming more real. This issue became more difficult to handle as the public became more aware that many competing uses existed for the finite resource, and those different uses were degrading the natural environments of the surface waters. With this realization instream ...

The World Of Charles J. Kappler: A Digital Portrait, Charles D. Bernholz, Robert J. Weiner Jan 2009

The World Of Charles J. Kappler: A Digital Portrait, Charles D. Bernholz, Robert J. Weiner

Faculty Publications, UNL Libraries

Charles J. Kappler (1868–1946) is known primarily for his compilation, Indian Affairs: Laws and Treaties. His life, however, reached beyond this accumulation of fundamental documents. He was a staff member of, among other entities, the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs; served as co-counsel in the first case before the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague; brought important tribal issues before the courts, just a quarter century after the Battle of the Little Big Horn; married, was widowed, married again, developed a family, and found a place in District society; and, in one role or another, participated in a ...


Europe And The 'Resolution Revolution': 'European' Legal Approaches To Privacy And Their Relevance For Space Remote Sensing Activities, Frans G. Von Der Dunk Jan 2009

Europe And The 'Resolution Revolution': 'European' Legal Approaches To Privacy And Their Relevance For Space Remote Sensing Activities, Frans G. Von Der Dunk

Space, Cyber, and Telecommunications Law Program Faculty Publications

English abstract: With the increasing general availability of very high resolution (VHR) satellite remote sensing data, issues of potential invasion of personal spheres of privacy will become ever more important. As of yet, there is no international law providing for a clear-cut regime balancing the freedom of information, including information gathering, with the rights of individual persons to remain free from interference with their privacy. The latter issues therefore essentially can be tackled only at a national level, with the obvious disadvantage that any regulation remains principally limited in scope to the national jurisdiction concerned.

Also at the European level ...


Protecting Well-Being While Pursuing Justice, Barbara Sturgis Jan 2009

Protecting Well-Being While Pursuing Justice, Barbara Sturgis

Faculty Publications of the Center on Children, Families, and the Law

The second and third chapters in this section draw attention to circumstances in which concerns regarding the ability of the criminal justice process to achieve just outcomes intersect with concerns regarding the potential effects of that process on the psychological well-being of various participants. These chapters by Bruce Winick, Jodi Quas, and Bradley McAuliff can reasonably be understood as complimentary in the following sense. Winick’s chapter endorses a substantive legal standard and a proposed procedure for applying that standard that raises a series of questions regarding the manner in which that procedure, and the participants in that procedure, will ...

Managing Performance [In Child Welfare Supervision], Megan E. Paul, Michelle Graef, Erika J. Robinson, Kristin Saathoff

Faculty Publications of the Center on Children, Families, and the Law

One of the primary roles of a supervisor is to manage worker performance. Performance management is the "continuous process of identifying, measuring, and developing the performance of individuals and teams and aligning performance with the strategic goals of the organization" (Aguinis, 2007, p. 2). Supervisors must regularly assess current performance levels and take steps to improve performance in a way that is congruent with agency goals. The ultimate goal is to achieve agency objectives through individual and team performance.

To effectively manage performance, supervisors must know what the performance expectations are for workers and clearly communicate these expectations to workers ...

Recruiting And Selecting Child Welfare Staff, Michelle Graef, Megan Paul, Tara L. Myers

Faculty Publications of the Center on Children, Families, and the Law

In this chapter, the focus is on recruiting and selecting new staff and on the steps agencies can take to ensure that they are doing the best possible job to attract and hire a high-performing, committed workforce. This chapter reviews a number of strategies for improving recruitment and selection processes and provides case examples from the authors' work with child protection agencies in several states.

Some of the techniques described here will be familiar, whereas others ...


European Satellite Earth Observation: Law, Regulations, Policies, Projects, And Programmes, Frans G. Von Der Dunk Jan 2009

European Satellite Earth Observation: Law, Regulations, Policies, Projects, And Programmes, Frans G. Von Der Dunk

Space, Cyber, and Telecommunications Law Program Faculty Publications

Outer space is no longer the exclusive domain of the two Cold War superpowers, the United States and the Soviet Union. In fact, many states now understand the potential benefits that outer space activities can bring and have become active in outer space activities in their own ways. Amongst the major players in outer space, specifically the area of satellite earth observation, one area stands out: Europe. Europe is not a single state, such as the United States, Russia, Japan, China, India, or Brazil; rather, Europe is comprised of a number of sovereign member states. The term Europe as used ...


The International Law Of Outer Space And Consequences At The National Level For India: Towards An Indian National Space Law?, Frans G. Von Der Dunk Jan 2009

The International Law Of Outer Space And Consequences At The National Level For India: Towards An Indian National Space Law?, Frans G. Von Der Dunk

Space, Cyber, and Telecommunications Law Program Faculty Publications

The discussion on a forum on the famous web-based LinkedIn networking site has already taken off: should India, as party to the four most important international space treaties, also develop a national space law, as other states increasingly are doing? That India is currently one of the leading spacefaring nations in the world is beyond discussion. In itself, however, that does not necessarily necessitate going through the trouble of drafting and implementing a national space law.

This article, however, argues that indeed, following the examples of a growing number of spacefaring states around the world discussed in some detail as ...
