Understanding terrorism : psychosocial roots, consequences, and interventions by Fathali M Moghaddam( Book )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 1,176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Understanding Terrorism: Psychosocial Roots, Consequences, and Interventions brings the powerful resources of psychological science to bear on the issue of terrorism. Terrorism by definition attempts to change the psychological state of its targets, so psychologists are well positioned to cast light on this phenomenon. In this volume, leading international experts conduct an incisive analysis of the psychosocial basis of terrorism and suggest ways to prevent it, including both strategies to eliminate the conditions that give rise to terrorism and effective ways to treat victims of terrorism. Social psychologists, therapists, and social workers as well as political scientists and lawmakers will find this volume to be indispensable."--Jacket

Ethnocultural aspects of posttraumatic stress disorder : issues, research, and clinical applications( Book )

24 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, the concept of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) has captured the attention and concern of clinicians and scientists, and reactions to traumatic stress have been extensively studied. But are such reactions universal? Although the PTSD diagnosis is now used internationally, it is by no means clear whether the diagnosis is meaningful across cultures and ethnic groups. Most of the research and clinical experience validating the diagnosis has been carried out in Western industrialized nations, and some clinicians have raised the question of ethnocentric bias in its formulation. This richly documented, edited volume is the first systematic examination of ethnocultural aspects of PTSD. Leaders in the field of PTSD research and practice explore both universal and culture-specific reactions to trauma, and discuss implications for research, treatment, and prevention. The multidisciplinary perspective of the book will appeal to a broad audience of psychologists, psychiatrists, anthropologists, epidemiologists, sociologists, and social workers

Cultural conceptions of mental health and therapy by Anthony J Marsella( Book )

22 editions published between 1982 and 1989 in English and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Within the past two decades, there has been an increased interest in the study of culture and mental health relationships. This interest has extended across many academic and professional disciplines, including anthropology, psychology, sociology, psychiatry, public health and social work, and has resulted in many books and scientific papers emphasizing the role of sociocultural factors in the etiology, epidemiology, manifestation and treatment of mental disorders. It is now evident that sociocultural variables are inextricably linked to all aspects of both normal and abnormal human behavior. But, in spite of the massive accumulation of data regarding culture and mental health relationships, sociocultural factors have still not been incorporated into existing biological and psychological perspectives on mental disorder and therapy. Psychiatry, the Western medical specialty concerned with mental disorders, has for the most part continued to ignore socio-cultural factors in its theoretical and applied approaches to the problem. The major reason for this is psychiatry's continued commitment to a disease conception of mental disorder which assumes that mental disorders are largely biologically-caused illnesses which are universally represented in etiology and manifestation. Within this perspective, mental disorders are regarded as caused by universal processes which lead to discrete and recognizable symptoms regardless of the culture in which they occur. However, this perspective is now the subject of growing criticism and debate

Fear of persecution : global human rights, international law, and human well-being( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fear of Persecution offers an overview of the plight of internally displaced people and refugees. Every year there are tens of millions of people around the world who have fled or are in flight due to the fear of persecution based upon race, religion, nationality, or membership of a particular social group or political opinion, and who then become invisible. James D. White and Anthony J. Marsella bring together essays that address issues emerging from the current relationship of international law, human rights, and refugee health and well-being. This book discusses and critically analyzes the evolution of international responses and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), the influence of the East/West cultural binary, and possible frameworks for peace-building efforts."--Jacket

Evaluation of Factors that Contribute to Improving Academic Achievementof Career and Technical Education Students in Rhode Island by Anthony J Marsella( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The primary purpose of this study was to gain a deeper understanding of career and technical education in Rhode Island utilizing Program Approval Process: Standards, Instruments, and Protocols. The process establishes standards for quality career and technical education. The population surveyed provided data on Standard Two: Curriculum and Instructional Design. Rhode Island Department of Education provided New England Common Assessment Program data for analysis and comparison of vocational and non-vocational students. This study utilizes a descriptive non-experimental research design to examine factors of curriculum and instructional design that effect the achievement of career and technical students in reading, writing, and math. Career and technical educators (n =115) were surveyed on the level in which their program curricula were aligned, integrated, and designed to address Standard Two and evaluate whether these factors effect achievement. This study also examined the achievement level of vocational students (n =7293) and non-vocational students (n =4168) disaggregated by population. The research questions guiding this study were comprised of (1) examining levels in which factors were implemented into career and technical programs (2) achievement differences between vocational and non-vocational students in reading, writing, and math, and (3) factors of curriculum alignment, integration and instructional design relationship to the achievement of vocational students. Study findings indicate that career and technical educators perceive their curriculum as most aligned with proficiency based graduation requirements (m =4.44) while least aligned with business standards (m =3.31). Two factors emerged from the survey data. They were categorized as academic and workplace factors. The results of a one-way anova showed vocational students did not achieve differently from non-vocational students in reading f (1,10798)=3.50, p greater than 0.05, writing f (1,10801)=0.15, p greater than 0.05, and math f (1,10920)=0.69, p greater than 0.05. Differences in achievement emerged when the data was disaggregated by group and sub-population. Teachers, on average, perceived their programs more academically aligned with curriculum and instructional design factors than with workplace curriculum and instructional design factors. Both academic and workplace factors were independent of reading, writing, and math proficiency. Recommendations include, continue collecting data by program with additional indicators by participation level, conduct research on why certain sub-populations achieve at a higher level when participating in vocational programs, expand access to career and technical programs through programs of studies.
