The Routledge handbook of health communication by Teresa L Thompson( Book )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Routledge Handbook of Health Communication brings together the current body of scholarly work in health communication. With its expansive scope, it offers an introduction for those new to this area, summarizes work for those already learned in the area, and suggests avenues for future research on the relationships between communicative processes and health/health care delivery. This second edition of the Handbook has been organized to reflect the goals of health communication: understanding to make informed decisions and to promote formal and informal systems of care linked to health and well-being. It emphasizes work in such areas as barriers to disclosure in family conversations and medical interactions, access to popular media and advertising, and individual searches online for information and support to guide decisions and behaviors with health consequences. This edition also adds an overview of methods used in health communication and the unique challenges facing health communication researchers applying traditional methods to efforts to gain reliable and valid evidence about the role of communication for health. It introduces the promise of translational research being conducted by health communication researchers from multiple disciplines to form transdisciplinary theories and teams to increase the well-being of not only humans but the systems of care within their nations. Arguably the most comprehensive scholarly resource available for study in this area, the Routledge Handbook of Health Communication serves an invaluable role and reference for students, researchers, and scholars doing work in health communication.--Publisher website
Communication and aging by Jon F Nussbaum( Book )

9 editions published between 1988 and 2000 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text employs a communication perspective to examine the aging process and the ability of individuals to adapt successfully to aging. It continues the groundbreaking work of the first edition, emphasizing a life-span approach toward understanding the social interaction that occurs during later life. The edition provides a comprehensive update on the existing and emerging research within communication and aging studies and considers such topics as notions of successful aging, positive and negative stereotypes toward older adults, and health communication issues. It raises awareness of the barriers facing elderly people in conversation and the importance such conversations have in elderly people's lives. The impact of nonrelational processes, such as hearing loss, are considered as they impact relationships with others and affect the ability to age successfully. The book is organized into 14 chapters. Each chapter is written so that the reader is presented with an exhaustive review of the pertinent and recent literature from the social sciences. As in the first edition, when the literature is empirically based, the communicative ramifications are then discussed. Readers of this volume will gain greater understanding of the importance of their communicative relationships and how significant they remain across the life span. Developed for students in communication, psychology, nursing, social gerontology, sociology, and related areas, Communication and Aging provides important insights on communication to all who are affected by the aging process

Communication Between Handicapped and Nonhandicapped Children A Network Analysis of a Mainstreaming Program by Teresa L Thompson( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research was conducted to test six hypotheses about the social effectiveness of mainstreaming orthopedically handicapped children. Data were collected on the network structures of the social relationships among handicapped and nonhandicapped children in first, third, and sixth grade classrooms. The three samples of children used in the study included nonhandicapped, nonmainstreamed children; handicapped and nonhandicapped children in mainstreamed classrooms; and handicapped, nonmainstreamed children. Children in all three samples were asked questions about how much they played with handicapped and nonhandicapped children both at school and at home. Pictures were taken of each child in the selected mainstreamed classrooms, and the children in these classrooms were shown the pictures of their classmates and asked how often they talked to or played with the pictured child. Only one of the six hypotheses was supported, indicating that orthopedically handicapped children were less integrated into overall communication networks. Those children who were mainstreamed did have more contact with peers outside of school than those who were not mainstreamed. The network analysis procedure appeared to be an accurate index of communication patterns, and the use of photographs in the process increased reliability and children's willingness to participate.

Parental Discretion Advised Televised Warning Statements and Parental Attitudes by Dan Slater( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study was conducted to determine the influence on parents of televised warnings about content unsuitable for children and to determine parents' attitudes toward such warnings. Researchers conducted interviews in 422 homes and distributed questionnaires with Likert-type and frequency scale items. While parents recognized and observed the warnings, the multiple regression analyses revealed that the parents who were influenced by the warnings were those who came to the viewing situation already active in regulating and monitoring their children's television viewing. The results suggest that television networks should supplement the warning statement system with efforts to increase the involvement of parents in overseeing their children's television viewing. The warnings would then influence greater numbers of active parents and increase the effect of the warnings on the audience for which they are intended. (Author/HTH)
A Test of a Method of Increasing Patient Question Asking in Physician-Patient Interactions by Teresa Feeser( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study examined the effectiveness of a method designed to increase active patient involvement in the health care context. Subjects, 38 patients visiting a three-physician dermatology practice one randomly selected morning, were asked to fill out a survey at the end of their visit. Half of the subjects were asked to read a "communication memo" prior to their meetings with their physicians, the other half were not. Results indicated that patients who read the memo encouraging questions were more at ease with their physicians, reported asking more questions, felt their physicians understood them more, and showed more of a decrease in concern about their health problems than did the control group. Results also indicated a positive correlation between the number of questions asked and perceived physician understanding. (Two tables of data are included; 28 references, the communication memo, and the survey are attached.) (Rs)
You Can't Play Marbles You Have a Wooden Hand: Communication with the Handicapped by Teresa L Thompson( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A two-year long study investigated the influence of being in a mainstreamed classroom on nonhandicapped children's abilities to communicate with the handicapped. The study involved three groups of students: (1) 66 nonhandicapped, nonintegrated (those in classes without handicapped children); (2) 24 nonhandicapped, integrated; and (3) 55 handicapped only. To measure the ability of a child to adapt communication to a specific listener, each subject was shown a series of eight drawings illustrating handicapped and nonhandicapped children doing different things and asked what he or she would say to communicate a certain intention to the child in the picture. The subjects' responses were coded for their empathic adaptation to each handicap. The subjects were tested at the end of the first year of a mainstreaming program and again at the end of the second year of the program. The results indicated that both nonhandicapped and handicapped children had difficulty communicating with their handicapped peers. Being in a mainstreamed class had no impact on the communication skills of the nonhandicapped children, and no differences were found between children studied at the conclusion of the first or second years of the mainstreaming program.

Television Cartoons Do Children Notice It's a Boy's World? by Teresa L Thompson( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study, a part of a larger project, investigated what children learn about gender roles from cartoons and how these cartoons might color the children's view of the world. A total of 89 children ranging in age from four to nine were sampled from three different locations (a university-affiliated day-care center and two parochial schools near the university). Interviewers were eight trained senior-level university students in a Women and Communication class. Interviews with the children lasted from 4 to 10 minutes. Results indicated that: (1) children watched more "chase-and-pratfall" cartoons than any other type, but the favorite cartoon type for nearly half of the children was continuing adventure; (2) a strong correlation existed between continuing adventure cartoons and more stereotypically male behaviors; (3) children attributed more of all behaviors to boy characters than to girl characters; (4) both boys and girls described boy characters' behavior as violent and active, but only the girls recognized that boys' behaviors made an impact on girl characters; (5) a majority of children perceived male and female characters in stereotypical ways; (6) children identified very few "real job" behaviors for either boy or girl characters; (7) children whose mothers worked outside the home reported that boy characters engage in fewer stereotypically male behaviors; and (8) the type of cartoon preferred by the children had an impact on their perceptions about cartoon characters.

Closing the gender gap : action video game training, cognitive improvement, and related self-efficacy by Lorraine Borghetti( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Despite concerted public efforts to reverse the trend, a persistent gender gap remains in many science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) disciplines. Earlier research has shown training on challenging action video games improves the type of cognitions crucial for STEM success. Equal to cognitive abilities in influence, high levels of self-efficacy in math and science predict involvement in STEM. Both action video game playing and STEM self-efficacy reflect broader social influences such that men play action games at a much higher rate than women and exhibit more self-efficacy for math and science. Using two research methods, cross-sectional and experimental, our study investigated the interaction between these two factors on interest and capabilities for STEM. Results supported existing findings as well as revealed novel findings in video game and self-efficacy research. Using a cross-sectional method, Study 1 predicted that action video gamers are much more likely to major in a hard STEM discipline, such as physics, engineering or computer science, than non-action video gamers. Notably, the effect of gender disappeared when the analysis on hard STEM major selection also considered the contribution of SAT/ACT math scores and action video gaming. However, Study 1 also found distinct video game preferences between the genders, while men and women played low-action games, like puzzle or relationship games, at the same rate, whereas men played far more action or semi-action games, such as first-person shooters or role playing games. Since gender was not indicated as significant factor, further exploration into possible latent variables revealed that high levels of the personality trait Openness were common to both action video gamers and hard STEM majors. Study 2 used a mixed-model experimental design to investigate the relations between action video game playing, cognitive improvements, increases in self-efficacy, and predispositions for STEM involvement. Though constrained by a small sample size, Study 2 suggests two genres of video gaming, 3D puzzle and action, improve cognitive abilities, though at varying levels, and increase self-efficacy in spatial-thinking, a core STEM capability. The results in Study 2 did not show an effect for gender; men and women increased in both at the same rate. Ultimately, the findings expand the understanding of video game effects on cognition and self-efficacy, in general, and in particular, illuminates how video gaming simultaneously represents and influences predispositions for science and math fields
