Couple Communication and Sexual Attitudes in Natural Family Planning by Mary Shivanandan( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Natural family planning (nfp) refers to techniques for planning or preventing pregnancy by observation of natural signs of fertility. In using natural family planning to avoid pregnancy, there is abstinence from sexual intercourse during the fertile phase of the menstrual cycle. Social values which are incorporated into the method include couples controlling and sharing responsibility for their own fertility and the fact that nfp does not interfere with physiological processes. Rhythm is considered to be an outmoded method which has been replaced by the ovulation or mucus method and the sympto-thermal method. A key concept of nfp is joint fertility since it is the life of the sperm and ovum together which constitute fertility. In a nfp satisfaction survey previously reported by Borkman and Shivanandan, almost all couples who had been using nfp at least 2 years reported positive aspects of spousal communication as a part of nfp. Natural family planning communication provides cycle awareness for both spouses, thereby enabling the understanding of women's moods related to hormone levels. This cycle awareness, or fertility awareness, represents a new and unique form of communication for couples. Natural family planning is a mechanism for impacting communication, forcing at least minimal communication about the sexual relationship, and providing regular opportunities for discussion of intimate aspects of the relationship.

The Alcohol Services Reporting System (Asrs) Revision Study by Thomasina Borkman( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document reports a revision study of the California Alcohol Services Reporting System (asrs), a system which consists of a structure of definitions and categories of services, a budget form of planned alcohol services, instructions for the county plan, and the report of expenditures. The study problem is that the asrs structure of definitions, categories and forms may be too restrictive and inadequate to accurately reflect the current diversity of publicly funded alcohol programs and services in California. The study methodology consisted of a literature review and site visits to and interviews with purposive samples of county alcohol programs and local service providers. Selective characteristics of the county alcohol programs and of the local service providers that were visited are described. The diversity of models of service in publicly funded programs is discussed. Six issues regarding the County Alcohol Program Administrators' use and evaluation of components of the asrs are discussed. These include overall use; problems with direct and indirect categories of service, with "participant" and "visit" types of service recipients, and with budget forms and cost guidelines; services that do not fit the asrs subcategories; and special accomplishments that are inadequately noted. The kinds of inadequacies in the data from the asrs and selected emerging issues that might impact revision of the asrs are discussed. Six major recommendations are presented with their rationales. The appendices include study plan and methods, a glossary, a paper on alcohol services models, and a discussion of the community-social model philosophy. (Abl)
