Evaluation of Victim Advocacy Services Funded by the Violence Against Women Act in Urban Ohio, 1999 by Carol Bohmer( )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The focus of this research and evaluation endeavor was on direct service programs in Ohio, particularly advocacy services for female victims of violence, receiving funding through the Services, Training, Officers, Prosecutors (STOP) formula grants under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) of 1994. The objectives of this project were (1) to describe and compare existing advocacy services in Ohio, (2) to compare victim advocacy typologies and identify key variables in the delivery of services, (3) to develop a better understanding of how victim advocacy services are defined and delivered, and (4) to assess the effectiveness of those services. For Part 1, Service Agencies Data, comprehensive information about 13 VAWA-funded programs providing direct services in urban Ohio was gathered through a mailback questionnaire and phone interviews. Detailed information was collected on organizational structure, clients served, and agency services. Focus groups were also used to collect data from clients (Parts 3-11) and staff (Parts 12-23) about their definitions of advocacy, types of services needed by victims, services provided to victims, and important outcomes for service providers. Part 2, Police Officer Data, focused on police officers' attitudes toward domestic violence and on evaluating service outcomes in one particular agency. The agency selected was a prosecutor's office that planned to improve services to victims by changing how the police and prosecutors responded to domestic violence cases. The prosecutor's office selected one police district as the site for implementing the new program, which included training police officers and placing a prosecutor in the district office to work directly with the police on domestic violence cases. The evaluation of this program was designed to assess the effectiveness of the police officers' training and officers' increased acce ... Cf.:
Prevention of non-biological male perpetrated child maltreatment : does a prevention and public awareness campaign work? by Linda S Helm( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study evaluated the effectiveness of the Choose Your Partner Carefully campaign on reducing the incidence of non-biological male-perpetrated child maltreatment in the counties that implemented the program. County factors such as the strength and length of the program implementation, poverty rates, and the availability of social services and childcare availability were included in the analysis. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used to examine the difference in in counties with and without the campaign on the incidence rates of non-biological male maltreatment. A negative binomial regression model controlling for covariates was used to provide a more detailed look at the impact of the Choose Your Partner Carefully campaign

Treatment programs in the agency. Computer Satisfaction scores for individual caseworkers, and aggregated for each of the treatment groups, were analyzed for the implementation phases. The relationship between Computer Satisfaction scores and various workers characteristics was also analyzed
Targeting families for family preservation services : the decision-making process by Ramona Woods Denby( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In this dissertation, two approaches to targeting are explored: imminent risk and special population. The purpose of this research was to evaluate how a sample of family preservation workers handle the issues of imminent risk and special population in the decision-making process they employ
Intention to use male condoms to prevent teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections by Charlla D Allen( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A factor analysis was used to determine which factors would emerge that could be used to predict adolescent females' use of condoms. Seven factors emerged that explained 68.3% of the variance. These factors were found to be positively correlated with the intent to use condoms, and the intention to talk about condom use was significantly correlated to the intent to use condoms. Those who view condom use to be necessary, generally intended to use male condoms in the future. Logistic regression analysis showed that (a) current use of condoms, (b) discussion of condom use, and (c) a sense of acculturation, best predicted the intent of using male condoms.

Effects of social capital and adolescent extracurricular activities on school truancy by Francis A Kombarakaran( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The findings of this study support a social capital hypothesis (Coleman, 1990) in explaining adolescent participation in extracurricular activities and school truancy. Adolescents whose parents are involved in their lives and who experience a sense of connection to their school tend to participate in extracurricular activities. Additionally, parental involvement in school activities, and intergenerational closure in the neighborhood also promote participation in extracurricular activities. Access to social capital resources in the various loci of adolescent life was found to predict the likelihood of non-truancy. Adolescents who experienced closeness at home and acceptance in school were less likely to be truant than others. Whereas parental involvement in school and in community activities were more protective for middle school children, parental involvement in community activities was more beneficial for poor children. Participation in arts and music activities was found to protect particularly middle school children from truant behavior

The impact of maternal problem drinking on children's developmental outcomes : focus on parenting as mediator by Gye Soon Kong Seo( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The results showed that maternal problem drinking was associated with children's increased non-normative behaviors and poor reading performance, but maternal problem drinking was not associated with children's depressive mood. Maternal problem drinking was associated with less maternal warmth and less cognitive stimulation, but it was not associated with other dimensions of parenting practices. Less cognitive stimulation and less maternal warmth were associated with increased children's non-normative behaviors and poor performance in reading tests, but they were not associated with scores on the measures of depression. Parenting practices, specifically in terms of maternal warmth and cognitive stimulation, had a mediating function in the impact of maternal problem drinking on children's non-normative behaviors and reading performance. However, the mediating effects of parenting were very small, and the direct effects of maternal binge drinking on child outcomes remained strong after controlling the effects of parenting variables. Major findings were discussed in terms of previous research findings. Several suggestions were made for social work practice and future studies of children with parental problem drinking
Testing a multisystemic model of school dropout by Kyusuk Jung( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Based on Henggeler's multisystemic perspective of adolescent behavior and empirical findings in the area of school dropout, this study constructed multisystemic model of school dropout and tested it. Specifically, this study examined the following: (a) & nbsp;whether the multisystemic model is statistically significant in explaining school dropout; (b) & nbsp;whether each of variables in the model is significant, controlling for all other independent variables; (c) & nbsp;what variables are more powerful than other variables in explaining dropping out; (d) & nbsp;how well the model explains dropping out; and (e) & nbsp;whether a different set of variables explain dropping out for various gender-race groups
Model analyses of factors affecting the neighboring activities of youth who reside in a revitalizing community by Carol A Snively( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A specified model with adequate fit indices resulted from structural equation model analyses. The latent constructs "community attitudes" and "neighboring activities" were supported. Paths between length of time in the community and community attitudes, length of time and social network, community attitudes and neighboring activities, and social network and neighboring activities were significant (p [less than or equal to] .05). Those who resided in the community for longer periods had less favorable community attitudes and a more extensive social network that included university affiliates. Persons with more favorable attitudes about the community and a social network that included more university affiliates participated more often in neighboring activities. The model created by these paths resulted in adequate goodness of fit indices but explained only 17% (R square standardized solution) of the variance in neighboring activities indicating that the model could benefit from further development, specifically in regard to a possible feedback loop between attitudes and neighboring activities. Further research is also needed to test the model with gender, minority status, and socioeconomic status. These analyses were not possible due to the small sample size

Utilizing research technology in human service organizations : factors contributing to implementing a convergent needs assessment model in area agencies on aging by In Hae Seo( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A descriptive analysis shows that 240 agencies had needs assessment experiences in the past. Of those 240 agencies, 29% reported having implemented the maximum convergent model, including fully completed convergence from people, from existing data, and from data collection methods. Almost 64% reported having experienced some degree of convergence in NA activities which converged either data sources and/or data collection: 17% for the minimum convergent model, 47% for the moderate convergent model. In addition, only 7% of the AAAs conducted a divergent needs assessment in which a single source was collected by a single method
The role of paternal involvement in male violence against female intimates by Gary Lee Dick( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Negative paternal involvement such as witnessing marital violence and being abusive by the father, along with self-esteem and the educational level of the men were statistically significant predictors of intimate violence. Shaming by the father, the moral father role, and the positive paternal emotional relationship were not statistically significant in predicting intimate violence. However, men who had the highest positive paternal emotional relationship with their fathers had higher self-esteem, than men who had negative relationships with their fathers. A positive paternal relationship was statistically correlated to self-esteem
