More than a checked box : emerging adult women's disclosure of family health history during healthcare provider appointments by Emily Brady Owen( )

1 edition published in 2021 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The process of disclosure is an essential part of the process of healthcare. Individuals must disclose information to healthcare providers in order to received accurate care and an accurate diagnosis (Valdez et al., 2010). Although it is a crucial part of the healthcare process, individual's privacy boundaries affect the amount of private information an individual will disclose. Petronio's (2002) Communication Privacy Management Theory states that an individual owns their private information and has the ability to decide who to share the information with, what information to share, and when to share the information. In addition to owning the private information, individuals create symbolic privacy boundaries when deciding who to disclose to. This thesis utilizes Petronio's (2002) Communication Privacy Management Theory to explore the lived experiences of emerging adult women and their experiences disclosing family health history and women's health to both family members and healthcare providers. In- depth interviews were utilized to understand the lived experiences of the participants and led to the findings of familial core criteria, individual motivations, provider communication catalysts, and privacy boundary coordination

The power of words : the impact of power language in corporate financial disclosures by Mackenzie Palmer Pike( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The current research seeks to understand how CEOs use power in their language when disclosing financial information and its ability to predict the financial success of a company. The amount of power one has dictates one's ability to achieve goals and influence others (Berger, 1985), and those with power are constantly engaging in behaviors and actions that communicate the amount of power they have (Hall, Coats & LeBeau, 2005). Nonverbal communication is used to display power through channels such as hand and body gestures, facial expressions, and language. Using the Linguistic Inquiry and Word Count (LIWC) software, an analysis of power language communicated by CEOs through their Management Discussion and Analysis (MD & A) section of their SEC 10-K filing was conducted and examined in relation to net income. It was found that companies that use more power language in MD & A statements have higher net incomes; companies with female CEOs, while having higher overall net incomes, have no relationship between power language and net income; companies with male CEOs have a significant relationship between power language and net income. Future research should explore the perception of power language in MD & As and its impact on investment decisions
