The Industry, the Psychologist and What We Can Do to Build Working Relationships Between Them by Joyce Parr( Book )

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

The housing industry for the elderly has changed from being primarily the effort of charitable organizations to include a large number of for-profit businesses. Psychologists interested in dealing with this industry will have to be aggressive. Important considerations include the following: (1) managers make decisions about finances, products, and services which impact older persons; (2) these entrepreneurs create and manage capital which makes new living and health care options available; (3) psychologists should try to learn from those who have been in the business; (4) potential clients for psychologists include entrepreneurs trying to enter the industry; (5) many who want information do not want to pay for it; (6) large companies do not want consultants, but want to hire their own people; and (7) small companies are more interested in consultants' data than are large companies. Psychologists working with industrial clients should read industry journals and attend industry meetings; identify practitioners' information needs and supply that information; make recommendations based on data, experience, and current psychological and gerontological information; and accept a timetable. Industrial parties should be sure the psychologist knows what they want, anticipate questions, share insight, insist on understandable terminology, give a deadline, and insist on discussions of implications. By working with industry, psychologists can contribute to the creation of better long-term care settings. (Abl)
Evaluating the Internal Health of Senior Communities by Joyce Parr( Book )

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

For members of the elderly housing industry, important questions concern how people decide to become residents of a particular senior community, how they function after they move in, and how they feel about their experience in the community. Scientists can design and conduct research to answer these questions. In an elderly housing facility, management must maintain control of the operation of the facility but residents must feel they are in control of their lives. Since these feelings of control are important to residents' satisfaction, management needs to help residents maintain the kinds of control they need. An evaluation procedure measuring internal health of senior communities has been developed by the Foundation for Aging Research of Clearwater, Florida. This evaluation determines if residents are dissatisfied, what training staff needs, priorities for improvements, impact of current programs and policies, and effectiveness of various communities under the same management. The evaluation assesses attitudes of residents, staff, management, and board members. The same questions are asked of all groups. Large differences of opinion suggest problem areas. Past studies have shown that residents' satisfaction is most dependent on their perception of staff caring about them as people. Staff, on the other hand, believe residents' satisfaction to be most dependent on interesting activities. Residents felt more in control of their lives than staff perceived them to be. This type of research can be useful and addresses specific questions for which owners and managers need answers. (Abl)
Special Thinking in Special Educators by Glenn J Gesek( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper describes the first year of a 3-year project to identify the specific skills of expert special education teachers. The project has three objectives: (1) to develop a knowledge base of identified expert special educators who work with culturally and linguistically diverse students with mild/moderate disabilities; (2) to field-test expertise teacher training materials and activities by incorporating them into a teacher education program; and (3) to evaluate and disseminate project results. The project is based on the premise that changes in the nature of special education have altered the role that special education teachers play. These changes include the inclusion movement, the changing demography of the school population, and the increased emphasis on transition services for adolescents. The literature is reviewed concerning characteristics of the expert educator of students with disabilities, the definition of expertise in teaching, and findings of research on thought processes of expert teachers. These findings suggest expert special educators focus more intensely on the needs of the individual learner than do regular educators. Other findings suggest that an effective method for teaching expertise is the use of videotaped classroom situations with audiotapes of the expert teacher commenting on his/her instructional behavior.

Optical properties of thin films of mixed Ni-W oxide made by reactive DC magnetron sputtering by I Valyukh( )

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

Thin films of NixW1-x oxides with x = 0.05, 0.19, 0.43 and 0.90 were studied. Films with thicknesses in the range 125-250 nm were deposited on silicon wafers at room temperature by reactive DC magnetron co-sputtering from targets of Ni and W. The films were characterized with X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and spectroscopic ellipsometry (SE). XRD spectra and SEM micrographs showed that all films were amorphous and possessed a columnar structure. The ellipsometric angles psi and Delta of as-deposited films were measured by a rotating analyzer ellipsometer in the UV-visible-near infrared range (0.63-6.18 eV) and by an infrared Fourier transform rotating compensator ellipsometer in the 500-5200 cm( -1) wavenumber range. SE measurements were performed at angles of incidence of from 50 degrees to 70 degrees. Parametric models were used to extract thicknesses of the thin films and overlayers of NixW1-x oxide at different compositions, band gaps and optical constants. Features in the optical spectra of the NixW1-x oxides were compared with previous data on tungsten oxide, nickel oxide and nickel tungstate
Spectroscopic ellipsometry characterization of electrochromic tungsten oxide and nickel oxide thin films made by sputter deposition by Iryna Valyukh( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Electrochromic films of tungsten oxide and nickel oxide were made by reactive dc magnetron sputtering and were characterized by X-ray diffraction, Rutherford backscattering spectrometry, scanning electron microscopy, and atomic force microscopy. The optical properties were investigated in detail by spectroscopic ellipsometry and spectrophotometry, using a multiple-sample approach. The W oxide film was modeled as a homogeneous isotropic layer, whereas the Ni oxide film was modeled as an anisotropic layer with the optical axis perpendicular to the surface. Parametric models of the two layers were then used to derive complex refractive index in the 300-1700-nm-range, film thickness, and surface roughness. A band gap of 3.15 eV was found for the W oxide film, using a Tauc-Lorentz parameterization. For the Ni oxide film, taken to have direct optical transitions, band gaps along the optical axis, perpendicular to it, and in an isotropic intermediate layer at the bottom of the film were found to be 3.95, 3.97, and 3.63 eV, respectively. Parameterization for the Ni oxide was made by use of the Lorentz model
Determination of electronic structure by impedance spectroscopy by Gunnar A Niklasson( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We present a novel method, based on electrochemical intercalation and impedance spectroscopy, to determine the electronic density of states of disordered transition metal oxides. Specifically, we have determined the "electrochemical density of states" of tungsten and iridium oxide thin films over energy ranges as wide as 1-2 eV. Our experimental results show a number of qualitative features exhibited by state-of-the-art band structure computations. Differences in details are probably due to the disordered, porous and sometimes amorphous nature of our films. The results suggest that the impedance spectroscopy method can be used to obtain the density of states only if the conduction band states are localized. The electrochemical density of states is often smaller than the computed one due to kinetic effects, i.e. very slow relaxations of the charge carriers. Nevertheless, our sensitive method opens new vistas for studying the electronic structure of disordered materials
"I'm Not Broken" : Perspectives Of Students With Disabilities On Identity-Making And Social Inclusion On A College Campus by Melinda Leigh Maconi( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Narratives help individuals to make sense of their lives and their everyday worlds. Within these narratives, individuals make sense of identities. Historically, people with disabilities have been depicted as helpless victims of their own bodies. However, during the twentieth century, disability rights social movements constructed a counter-narrative, stating that society's reactions to different bodies was the real source of disability. While this was a positive status change for people with disabilities, it did not do enough to shed the status as victim. Yet many students with disabilities do not see themselves as victims. Therefore, I used narrative analysis to answer the question: "How do university students with disabilities make sense of their identities as adults with agency through narratives?" Furthermore, these narratives are not created in a vacuum. Many stories of identity-making surrounded narratives of being included or excluded from various social situations, leading to my second research question: To what extent have students with disabilities felt included/excluded in aspects of university life including clubs, organizations, sporting events, and other social aspects of the university in which other students participate? I am focusing on people with disabilities who seek accommodations, as they are acknowledging that they need help, which goes against the narrative of rugged individualism found in the United States of America. However, my research found that university students who seek accommodations do not construct themselves as victims. On the contrary, many students receiving accommodations construct narratives in which they are more hard working and more moral than other students

Ellipsometrically determined optical properties of nickel-containing tungsten oxide thin films Nanostructure inferred from effective medium theory by Iryna Valyukh( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Films of Ni x W 1− x oxide with 0.05 ≤ x ≤ 0.53 were produced by reactive dc magnetron co-sputtering onto Si. Such films have documented electrochromism. Spectroscopic ellipsometry was used to extract accurate data on the dielectric function in the photon range 0.062 to 5.62 eV. The results for 0.62 to 5.62 eV were compared with computations from the Bruggeman effective medium theory applied to two nanostructural models: one representing a random mixture of structural entities characterized by the dielectric functions of WO 3 and NiWO 4 and the other describing a random mixture of WO 3 and NiO. Unambiguous evidence was found in favor of the former model, and hence the films are composed of nanosized tungsten oxide and nickel tungstate. This agrees excellently with an earlier investigation of ours on Ni x W 1− x oxide films, where nanostructure was inferred from Raman spectroscopy, x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and x-ray diffraction
Perspectives of service professionals on culturally competent treatment modalities for women with dual diagnosis by Sara Green( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study examined the cultural competency dimensions of work in the mental health field, with particular reference to services for women who are dually diagnosed with mental health and substance abuse disorders. This quantitative, exploratory study used a non-probability, convenience sample of 31 respondents with experience and/or knowledge of services offered by mental health agencies that provide services for women diagnosed with co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorders. Literature review conducted for this study substantiated the fact that dual diagnosis treatment bifurcates a complex phenomenon and compartmentalizes the treatment modalities offered by mental health and substance abuse treatment providers. Key study findings indicate that extraneous variables pertaining to demographic profiles of the participants is not a differentiating factor of the cultural competency scores of the respondents; and that the participants' likelihood of having received gender specific training is not contingent upon the agency having a policy for handling inappropriate language or behavior related to gender. Additionally there were statistically significant strong positive correlation (r (31) =.873, p < .05) between the participant's agency having a policy for handling staff members' inappropriate language or behavior related to gender and agencies having a policy for handling inappropriate language or behavior related to ethnicity. Medium positive correlation was also found between participants' understanding of the impact of culture on life's activities and the participants' agencies gradations on the policy for handling staff members' inappropriate language or behavior relating to ethnicity. Recommendations include the need for the incorporation of consistent training on culturally competent services for professionals, in the mental health field, to understand the way gender specific stereotypes mediate the quality of services for women diagnosed with both substance abuse and mental health related issues
Structure and composition of sputter-deposited nickel-tungsten oxide films by Sara Green( )

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

Films of mixed nickel-tungsten oxide, denoted NixW1-x oxide, were prepared by reactive DC magnetron co-sputtering from metallic targets and were characterized by Rutherford backscattering spectrometry. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, X-ray diffractometry and Raman spectroscopy. A consistent picture of the structure and composition emerged, and at x<0.50 the films comprised a mixture of amorphous WO3 and nanosized NiWO4, at x = 0.50 the nanosized NiWO4 phase was dominating, and at x>0.50 the films contained nanosized NiO and NiWO4

Electrochromism in Nickel Oxide and Tungsten Oxide Thin Films Ion Intercalation from Different Electrolytes by Sara Green( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Electrochromic (EC) NiOz and WOy thin films were prepared by sputtering and were used in a feasibility study aimed at investigating mixtures of these two oxides. The object was to identify a suitable electrolyte, compatible with both NiOz and WOy. To that end we carried out cyclic voltammetry (CV) in potassium hydroxide (KOH), propionic acid, and lithium perchlorate in propylene carbonate (Li-PC). WOy could be coloured in propionic acid and Li-PC, while NiOz could be coloured only in KOH. Both films showed best stability in Li-PC, which hence is well suited for further studies of mixed NiOz and WOy
