Housing first : ending homelessness, transforming systems, and changing lives by Deborah Padgett( Book )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chronicles the story of Housing First (HF), a paradigm-shifting evidence-based approach to ending homelessness that began in New York City in 1992 and rapidly spread to other cities nationally and internationally. The authors report on the rise of a "homeless industry" of shelters and transitional housing programs that the HF approach directly challenged by rejecting the usual demands of treatment, sobriety, and housing readiness. They proceed to trace the history of homelessness and the rapid growth of the publicly funded homeless industry, an amalgam of religious and philanthropic organizations, advocacy groups, and non-profits that was insufficient to stem the tide of homelessness (resulting from dramatic reductions in affordable housing) in the 1980s, and continuing to the present time. The book also summarizes research findings on HF, and includes a chapter of personal stories of individuals who have experienced it. The book was written with the participation of the founder of HF (Tsemberis) and includes seminal research on HF by the co-authors (Padgett and Henwood). Also central to the volume is the deployment of theories--organizational, institutional, and implementation--to conceptually frame the rise of HF and its wide adoption as well as the resistance that arose in some locations. This book also addresses wider issues of innovation and systems change in social and human services.--Adapted from dust jacket

Cystinosis in Emerging Adulthood by Maya Helene Doyle( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Purpose: Medical advances have allowed for the transmutation of cystinosis, a rare disease, from fatal in childhood, to chronic and manageable into adulthood. Arnett's theory of Emerging Adulthood suggests that the ages of 18 to 30 are a time of exploration, instability, and possibility. How do individuals with cystinosis, and their families, navigate this time in their lives?

Serbian Americans : N017( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This file is made up of ten documents almost entirely on Serbs in the United States and dealing with a wide range of ethnographic topics. Cultural assimilation and adaptation to American society, as well as the maintenance of Serbian ethnic identity are discussed to some extent in nearly all the works but are given special attention by Padgett, Simić, and Matejec. A study of the Serbian American community in the San Francisco Bay Area for the period of 1918-1980s, is found in Vucinich. This document discusses Serbian immigration to the area, the culture history of the region, socio-political organization, literary activities, and the effects of the European "wars of liberation" on the Serbian American population. Brkich's work describes the origin, development, activities, and significance of various Serbian organizations in the United States, with particular emphasis on the Serbian Mutual Aid Societies. The three publications in this file by Simić deal with the concept of aging in Serbian American society, the institution of slava or "baptismal glorification", and the Serbian family. The study by Vrga presents an analysis of the various factors promoting ethno-religious factionalism in the Serbian Orthodox Church in America in the early 1960s. Gakovich presents a bibliography of documents on Serbian life in the United States and Canada up to 1990. His work also contains a list of Serbian newspapers and periodicals which are active or no longer active in the field of publication for the period of 1869-1990. This document also contains a directory of Serbian churches and monasteries in the United States and Canada

A number of computing techniques are considered, such as methods of operator approximation with any given accuracy; operator interpolation techniques including a non-Lagrange interpolation; methods of system representation subject to constraints associated with concepts of causality, memory and stationarity; methods of system representation with an accuracy that is the best within a given class of models; methods of covariance matrix estimation;methods for low-rank
Making sense of violence: A qualitative study of men who have been violent towards female partners by Christine Theuma Wilkins( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This qualitative study centers on men who have been violent towards female partners, and explores their understanding and meaning making of their behavior. The sample was selected from among three batterer intervention programs in New York City. Data were collected through in-depth initial and follow-up interviews with sixteen men, aged 23-46 years over a period of one year and analyzed for codes and themes consistent with grounded theory methodology. Making sense of violence was identified as an overarching theme among the men's narratives, and included concepts such as emphasizing self as nonviolent, being in control/being out of control, assuming responsibility for behavior, "it takes two to tango," linking behavior to childhood violence exposure, and recreating one's self. How the men contextualized their violence and their experiences of their participation in a group program were recognized as sub-themes. Implications for clinical practice and future research that specifically focus on men who are violent towards female partners are also discussed
The cycle of relapsed/refractory disease among young adults with lymphoma: A grounded theory study by Jenna Mills( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cancer survivorship research is shifting toward identifying survivors not as one homogenous group, but rather as encompassing several subgroups with differing needs by age and disease-type. Young adults diagnosed between the ages of 15-39 represent one understudied population. Even less is known about the experiences of young adults with lymphoma whose disease is considered incurable upon diagnosis or becomes relapsed (disease returns) or refractory (disease does not respond to treatment). This study used qualitative methods to examine the experiences of fifteen young adults (median age of 24 years) with relapsed or refractory lymphoma from diagnosis, through recurrence and beyond. The data analysis revealed seventeen codes that are categorized into five themes describing how life changes upon diagnosis, the process of adaptation, how recurrence differs from diagnosis and the impact on life choices, relationships and worldview. The grounded theory generated through this study captures the cycle of relapsed or refractory disease among young adults with lymphoma. The findings suggest young adults, particularly those whose disease is not cured after primary treatment, have unique physical and psychosocial needs
