Commentary: the public health consequences of restricted induced abortion--lessons from Romania. (1/17)

The question of whether abortion should be legal is currently being decided in many countries. Although much of the discussion has focused on ethical issues, the public health consequences should not be overlooked and should be addressed realistically and responsibly. Nowhere are the public health manifestations of restricted abortion more apparent than in Romania. The pronatalist policies of the Ceaucescu regime resulted in the highest maternal mortality rate in Europe (approximately 150 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births) and in thousands of unwanted children in institutions.  (+info)

Contextual predictors of mental health service use among children open to child welfare. (2/17)

BACKGROUND: Children involved with child welfare systems are at high risk for emotional and behavioral problems. Many children with identified mental health problems do not receive care, especially ethnic/minority children. OBJECTIVE: To examine how patterns of specialty mental health service use among children involved with child welfare vary as a function of the degree of coordination between local child welfare and mental health agencies. DESIGN: Specialty mental health service use for 1 year after contact with child welfare was examined in a nationally representative cohort of children aged 2 to 14 years. Predictors of service use were modeled at the child/family and agency/county levels. Child- and agency-level data were collected between October 15, 1999, and April 30, 2001. SETTING: Ninety-seven US counties. PARTICIPANTS: A total of 2823 child welfare cases (multiple informants) from the National Survey of Child and Adolescent Well-being and agency-level key informants from the participating counties. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Specialty mental health service use during the year after contact with the child welfare system. RESULTS: Only 28.3% of children received specialty mental health services during the year, although 42.4% had clinical-level Child Behavior Checklist scores. Out-of-home placement, age, and race/ethnicity were strong predictors of service use rates, even after controlling for Child Behavior Checklist scores. Increased coordination between local child welfare and mental health agencies was associated with stronger relationships between Child Behavior Checklist scores and service use and decreased differences in rates of service use between white and African American children. CONCLUSIONS: Younger children and those remaining in their homes could benefit from increased specialty mental health services. They have disproportionately low rates of service use, despite high levels of need. Increases in interagency coordination may lead to more efficient allocation of service resources to children with the greatest need and to decreased racial/ethnic disparities.  (+info)

Neonaticide, newborn abandonment, and denial of pregnancy--newborn victimisation associated with unwanted motherhood. (3/17)

We report two cases of newborn death and two cases of near-miss newborn death. One neonate was strangled to death after delivery in the hospital and one died from lethal congenital malformations. The third was found on the verge of death after being abandoned in a dumpster. The fourth was rescued from the toilet bowl by the mother's boyfriend while the mother was in a state of panic. In the three cases where the infants' maternal identities were known, the women were all primiparous and aged 22, 13, and 17 years. The paternity was extramarital, incestuous, and concealed, respectively. Denial or concealment of pregnancy was present in all cases, but none of the women had any overt psychiatric manifestations at the time of delivery. Neonaticide and newborn abandonment are closely associated with denial of pregnancy, and are serious forms of childhood victimisation. Their occurrence in Hong Kong is poorly understood and no representative figures are available. A concerted effort among the health care, social work, and judicial professionals is needed to define the scope of the problem and devise preventive measures.  (+info)

Crimes and misdemeanours: the case of child abandonment. (4/17)

In 2002, a child was abandoned in a Burger King restaurant in Amsterdam by a Chinese woman, who hoped that the baby would be picked up by someone able to give the child a better life. She was convicted for child abandonment and imprisoned. Whereas some forms of child abandonment are criminalised, others are socially accepted and not even on the ethics agenda. This paper is an invitation to reflect on the inconsistency in the ways in which we prosecute, punish or try to correct some forms of child abandonment and yet make allowances for others.  (+info)

Cognitive recovery in socially deprived young children: the Bucharest Early Intervention Project. (5/17)

In a randomized controlled trial, we compared abandoned children reared in institutions to abandoned children placed in institutions but then moved to foster care. Young children living in institutions were randomly assigned to continued institutional care or to placement in foster care, and their cognitive development was tracked through 54 months of age. The cognitive outcome of children who remained in the institution was markedly below that of never-institutionalized children and children taken out of the institution and placed into foster care. The improved cognitive outcomes we observed at 42 and 54 months were most marked for the youngest children placed in foster care. These results point to the negative sequelae of early institutionalization, suggest a possible sensitive period in cognitive development, and underscore the advantages of family placements for young abandoned children.  (+info)

With my Los Nefilim series, I have two individuals who were abandoned at very early ages: Diago and his son, Rafael. Diago suffered tremendous abuse, and still deals with the fallout from his early childhood. Rafael, meanwhile, was abandoned at an earlier age and lived in an orphanage before Diago discovers him.. I didnt need to research the effects of abandonment on either Diago or Rafael-personal experience was already under my belt. I did do some research into how to mitigate the effects of abandonment on children. By looking at the problems and solutions that the adoptive parents of Russian orphans placed in American homes experienced, I was able to see tactics that failed miserably and others who experienced success.. Apparently, in some cases, the adoptive parents werent prepared for the emotional issues of their children. They expected love and discipline would be enough. One example that remained with me was that of a young Russian boy who had been adopted by an affluent family. The ...

The Ospedale degli Innocenti was a charity institution that was responsible for the welfare of abandoned children. It represented social and humanistic views of Florence during the early Renaissance. It can also explain how investors used Florences charitable institutions as savings banks: A relationship between charity and Italian city-states can be depicted by using the Innocenti as a case study. Furthermore, the hospital remains as a significant place with a statement of compassion and care besides its unpleasant downfalls. The Innocenti was responsible for the care of abandoned children and provided them with the ability to rejoin society. The first infant abandoned was on February 5, 1445, ten days after opening.[3] Babies were received, wet nursed and weaned. Masters were hired to teach reading and writing to boys. Boys were taught skills according to their abilities. Girls were considered to be the weaker sex, fragile and most vulnerable. They were sent to mistresses who taught them how ...
If you have an existing health condition, even if it is well-managed, we recommend you ask your doctor whether or not they are happy for you to travel. This is because the extreme heat, humidity and dust can often exacerbate conditions.. Volunteers must be aware that they will be required to sit on the floor with their legs crossed for long periods of time - this is a cultural practice. Volunteers must also be able to cope with heavy lifting. If you suffer from joint problems, mobility problems or bone problems, you must seriously consider whether or not this is the right placement for you.. We strongly recommend that volunteers take out travel insurance with good medical coverage. There are several excellent private international hospitals nearby in Bangkok, but they are very expensive! Travel insurance will help with this. We recommend that volunteers only use these private hospitals if they need medical care. ...

Our Africa Circle of Hope(ACOHF) Community Health Team is returning to Mathare after more than a year. These five dedicated women are led by Dr. Katrina, who helped to establish our first health team three years ago. The participants are medical, education and business professionals from Illinois, California and Florida. Their goal this year is to complete a health assessment of more than 200 orphaned and abandoned children, from babies only a few months old to teenagers, in the Good Samaritan Children`s Home in the Mathare slums of Nairobi. The ACOHF team is assisted by nursing students, including Gladys, an ACOHF scholarship student at Regina Pacis University College completing her Community Health degree.. The 2016 ACOHF team members-- Katrina, Simone, Joanie, Kellee, and Kristin-- are competent, caring and professional as they assess each individual. Many of the children are shy and avoid eye contact. Others come and show one of the members of our health workers a hand, arm or leg that is ...
Sensible kids know that some of the scariest stories come in the form of fairy tales. In the original Brothers Grimm story, Hansel and Gretel are abandoned by their starving parents in the woods where they encounter a cannibalistic witch who fattens them up with cakes and sweets. This South Korean adaptation recasts the children as the villains of the story, making them the cake suppliers who dispose of unwary strangers unlucky enough to chance upon their home in the forest. Cannibalism only gets a slight (visual) mention in this modern retelling, in the form of a dubious, bloody joint of meat in the over-stocked fridge, but the other memorable elements of the story - the house full of cakes, the abandoned children and the impenetrable woods you cannot escape - survive intact. Creepy children are a safe bet for horror movies, as are crash victims who foolishly wander away from their wrecked cars instead of waiting for emergency services. These two horror staples have been over-used, and combined ...

The Shaare Zedek Medical Center (Hebrew: מרכז רפואי שערי צדק‬, Merkaz Refui Shaarei Tzedek) (lit. "Gates of Justice") is a major hospital in Jerusalem established in 1902. Shaare Zedek was the first large hospital to be located in the Western portion of Jerusalem and is today the citys fastest growing hospital and the only major medical facility in the citys center. After the Ottoman Turks gave permission in the 1890s, and with funding from European donors, the hospital was built on Jaffa Road, two miles (3 km) outside the Old City. Its opening ceremony took place on January 27, 1902. Dr. Moshe Wallach was the director from then until 1947. Schwester Selma lived in the hospital and cared for abandoned children. The building in Bayit Vegan was inaugurated in 1980. In December 2012, Shaare Zedek assumed operational control over Bikur Cholim Hospital and merged many of its activities. The hospital treats over 600,000 patients per year in more than 30 inpatient departments and ...

For these reasons, the Working Group offers five recommendations. First, we recommend that abandonment of treatment be documented as an adverse event in childhood cancer studies in resource-poor countries. Patients who do not begin or complete treatment should not be excluded from survival analyses. Event-free survival should be analysed in two ways: by treating abandonment as an adverse event and by censoring cases at the time of abandonment. Because some children might be cured if they abandon treatment after completing most of their planned therapy, these two estimates will reflect the upper and lower bounds of the true event-free survival estimate. Second, we propose that abandonment of treatment be defined as failure either to begin (conventionally termed refusal) or to continue the planned course (abandonment), because both are likely to have related underlying causes and could benefit from similar interventions. However, the timing of abandonment should be documented to help to identify ...

AKIN was founded in 2007 after the sudden closure of an orphanage in Nairobi, Kenya, which left hundreds of orphaned and abandoned children displaced. Since that time, AKIN has funded every one of these children through primary, secondary and often tertiary level schooling so that they be given the opportunity to achieve their full potential.. Nairobi born Managing Director, James Wright, has personally partnered with AKIN for the last six years and has since implemented a micro-loans program called Bakari (Swahili for shows great promise) for those AKIN graduates who wish to start their own businesses. He has financed 8 loans and conducts monthly business mentorship meetings with each loan recipient via Skype.. ...

Humans are social creatures, and there is no other behavioral process that is more important than attachment. Attachment requires sensory and cognitive processing that lead to intricate motor responses. As humans, the end goal of attachment is the motivation to acquire love, which is different from other animals who just seek proximity. There is an emerging body of research across multiple disciplines investigating the neurological basis of attachment and the prosocial emotions and behaviors that are the prerequisites for healthy adult relationships. The social environment, mediated by attachment, influences the maturation of structures in a childs brain. This might explain how infant attachment affects adult emotional health. Researchers are currently investigating the link between positive caregiver-child relationships and the development of hormone systems, such as the Hypothalamic-pituatary-adrenal axis (HPA axis) and Oxytocinergic system. In order to accurately study the neurobiology of ...

If these feelings continue to linger, as they often do, the event will be etched into the portion of the mind that is sensitive to the feeling of abandonment, until the anxiety sufferer will begin to question the viability of the relationship. As this process begins, the one who perceives being abandoned will start to feel unloved and unworthy, and can begin to get angry. The afflicted partner may start to get very controlling in an attempt to save him or herself and the relationship. Sufferers may start to smother their partners to the point where they become jealous if he/she spends free time with anyone else.. People with this disorder fear that their partner will not be dependent upon them, and will leave them to be abandoned once again, as they were in childhood. At times they may feel that in the end people will always let them down, and with these thoughts they can justify why they live defensively, and end relationships prematurely. This also means that they will be constantly on the ...

I think I can safely say we have all experienced some sort of toxicity in a relationship , whether it be with a family member, ex-boyfriend, friends or a work colleague. While many are born into a loving, caring, supporting family, from my many years in the clinic, this is far from the truth for many clients. This can be extremely painful when we have experienced first hand the exile, trauma or abandonment from our family members.

Cultural, economic, and political forces in China have resulted in an extraordinary increase in the numbers of Chinese children placed with adoptive families in the United States over the past 10 years. Most of these abandoned children are girls, attributable to strong cultural preferences for sons and the incentives for a 1-child family.11,,12 Many adoption professionals suppose that the Chinese girls have been healthier than the Eastern European children, in part, because they are generally younger at the time of adoption. Notably, in 1996, the China Center for Adoption Affairs (the national authority) reorganized, with resulting delays in adoptive placements. Children often now remain in institutional care for ,1 year. It is hoped that these delays will be minimized in the future as new political appointments are made. Although foster care is now being used in some areas of China, the children included in this study nearly all resided in orphanages before adoption.. Medical information from ...

What do we do when we are not task-focused? Daydream! Daydreaming involves memory constructions, future plans, and reflections on the past," stated Prof Conway. He suggested that when we are in default mode, we are engaging in narrative thinking and creating coherent, meaningful, evaluative and emotional mental representations. These will include conceptual autobiographical knowledge (general events), some episodic memories, some memories of future events (plans) as well as imaginings of how the past might have been (wishes).. While narratively thinking, we oscillate between internal and external perspectives creating narratives that have both experiential, wishful and critical aspects to them. Sometimes, these narratives become memories or are experienced as memories. Perhaps because they are generated in the same brain networks as actual memories, they can more easily become part of long term knowledge.. "The purpose of narrative thinking is to maintain a dynamic self-system. Maintenance of ...

It is as if Mom and Dad consulted a mail order catalog, found the child they wanted on page 37, placed an order, but that child was "out of stock" and you were sent to them as a trial replacement. Rather than send you back, they decided to make you into the child they had in mind all along.. The pain of that rejection, the rejection of ones real self, continues to play out. It is not just a one-time-and-its-over rejection; the conditionality of acceptance in ones family is known in ones gut regardless of lavish claims by parents that one is truly loved.. Though the child goes along with the game, the feelings of abandonment remain. They are too painful for the child to bear. To go on with life, the child has to hide the pain deeply away. Rejection of the real self - and what the child must do to pretend it didnt happen - are a directing force in ones life, throughout ones life.. What a person does to hid from feelings of abandonment result in what therapists call "Personality Disorder." ...

The Karnofsky Performance Scale Index allows patients to be classified as to their functional impairment. This can be used to compare effectiveness of different therapies and to assess the prognosis in individual patients. The lower the Karnofsky score, the worse the survival for most serious illnesses. Other similar scales of performance status include the Zubrod , TNM and AJC-ECOG scales.

This abandonment of the world is not me. I enjoy family and friends for dinner during the holidays. Though it takes a lot of energy but that energy converts to joy. Not this year.

So what does this all mean to our work and the project we were focused on at Flip the Clinic? Well, we discovered that perhaps instead of trying to change the system, we needed to change ourselves and the way we interact with it. Rather than focusing on transition as a point in time and trying to identify which transitions throughout the life cycle of a person with a chronic illness have the greatest impact on the other aspects of life and health, we shifted our focus to the core components of a transition point, any transition point, and the parts that we want to take to 100 and the parts that we want to take to 0 - what do we need to start doing and what do we need to stop doing in order to achieve transformation. In our 100 column we thought about things like partnership, preparedness, empowerment, shares goals and ideal communication. In our 0 column we put things like wasted time, feelings of abandonment, falling through the cracks, preventable illness and "the yuck", defined as anxiety, ...

Sent me off to a foreign land. Said go and kill the yellow man. I was born in the USA... Worth including just because it is so misunderstood. Widely mistaken for a patriotic song, even Ronald EReagan -- to Springsteens bemusement and anger -- used it as a presidential campaign at one point. By the 1990s, Springsteen had taken to performing the song acoustically or so stripped back (like above) that the words and their meaning were impossible to misunderstand. This song is only pro-USA is you think poverty, lack of opportunities, the send of womring class youths to foreign wars, and the abandonment of those who fight and widespread unemployment are good things. Which, in Reagans defence, I think he actually did ...

The research will examine the following Specific Aims:. Specific Aim 1: To adapt a U.S.-developed family-focused and strengths-based prevention program to the context of HIV/AIDS-affected families in Rwanda (the Family-Strengthening Intervention in Rwanda or FSI-R) using prior qualitative findings and CAB input.. Specific Aim 2: To deliver the intervention to a small group of families to collect preliminary data on intervention feasibility, acceptability, and to further refine the intervention manual for the FSI-R.. Specific Aim 3: To conduct a pilot feasibility study of the FSI-R with 80 families.. In pursuit of Specific Aim 3, this research will (a) conduct a preliminary exploratory analysis to examine the extent to which the FSI-R for HIV/AIDS-affected families is associated with improved caregiver-child relationships using measures of family connectedness, good parenting, and social support. Hypothesis 1: Participants in the FSI-R will demonstrate increases in protective processes compared ...

Collaborative Opportunities. Collaboration is not a useful add-on in child welfare; it is the critical link to resources that the system needs for success (Children and Family Futures, 2011). School age children that live in an environment where substance abuse is present need a variety of services. CPS is not the only agency that can assist children and families of SUD; other agencies are needed to serve the needs of the child and family to address any trauma or stressors/challenges that the family may have as a whole. The school social worker and child welfare can both work together by collaborating effective interventions, resources, etc. for the child and family as a whole unit. Two opportunities of cross sector collaboration is that both agencies can collectively achieved their goals of service delivery and contribution of strengths they both have. Rosenberg, 2009 states that School social workers generally work in teams often known as a "school-based support team." The school social worker ...

Abandonment/Separation Abandonment is when a child has been abandoned, a childs parent has died or is unavailable to exercise his or her custodial rights over a child and has not made adequate provision for a childs care and custody. It also occurs when a child is in a residential placement and the parent refuses or is unable or unwilling to resume the childs care and custody.. Serious Act Committed by a child under the age of 12. This is when a child has killed or seriously injured another person or caused serious damage to another persons property. Services or treatment are necessary to prevent a recurrence and the childs parent or the person having charge of the child does not provide, or refuses or is unavailable or unable to consent to those services or treatment. The child has on more than one occasion injured another person or caused loss or damage to another persons property, with the encouragement of the person having charge of the child or because of that persons failure or ...
We are very happy to declare the abandonment of this horrible act on women," said Fatuma Ali, head of womens affairs in the Amibara district. We will fight until we secure 100 percent abandonment of the practice from our region.". The ban comes 10 years after various UN agencies, NGOs and the regional government strengthened efforts to discourage the practice. According to the UN Childrens Fund (UNICEF), more than 91% of women in the Afar region undergo one of the most severe forms of FGM.. "This is what we have been seeking for a long time," added Fatuma. "We have devoted all our resources and human power to stop this violation of the rights of women in our region. We are happy that our elders and the community agreed to stop this malpractice.". Female genital mutiliation is illegal under Ethiopian criminal law, with a penalty of five to twenty years in prison. Afar has also adopted this law, announcing a new proclamation to further protect women.. The decision to ban the practice in both ...
From a personal point of view, this was a remarkable experience. Speaking as someone with a history of mental health issues in my immediate family, and also as someone that has spent years working with people with autism and other developmental disorders, this was another unique and special exploration for me. I couldnt help but think about a young female client that I had out west, who spent most of her teenage years in a helmet in a white room. She was on her last shot at societal integration during our time together, sadly, she failed to meet the standards set for her, and she was re-institutionalized. I wondered what had become of her for what seemed like days, but was a mere matter of seconds, before my focus shifted to my brother. I get a sinking lost feeling like there is nothing that I can do when I think about my older brother. Like if I just had one more piece of the puzzle I could help him put himself back together. His experiences locked in psych wards and modern day institutions ...

Dear All, I share an interest in the questions posed by Dr. Opton yesterday afternoon. Aside from the psychological and emotional toll this levies on children, I am also interested in what can be done to capitalize on existing child welfare funding flexibility. Multiple moves indicate certainly a form of funding flexibility, do they not? I am often told that the money cannot be used flexibly to find the most appropriate placement (or an independent) apartment and services for older youth in care because the funding is either not available or inflexible. Therefore, Im interested in how it is that the youth can be moved so frequently, given these restrictions. Has anyone researched any of the questions the Dr. poses so eloquently to this listserv? Is there any good research on how the decision to move a child are made, etc.?

Blurb:Two brothers. One impossible choice From the moment her suspicions are confirmed, Lily knows shes screwed. What the hell is a nineteen year old with no future going to do with a baby? She can barely take care of herself. She needs help. In walks Sloan McClain, the only man Lily has ever truly wanted - and the brother of the boy whose baby shes carrying. While Lily expects a great number of outcomes when she tells Sloan her news, him proposing marriage and asking her to keep the baby is not one of them, especially not when she has every intention of giving the baby a better future by giving it the home she cant. Having spent the majority of his life protecting his brother from the bone-breaking fists of their father, Sloan is no stranger to hardship, loss and abandonment. He has learned long ago never to rely on anyone to take care of what was his, and that baby is his. He isnt about to let Lily give away his family, nor can he allow that child to destroy the future he has built for ...
Whether the continuation of a policy which prohibits the US from acquiring drugs used in lethal injection procedures leads to the abandonment of the process may become clear in the coming years. There may however be unintended consequences, highlighted by this case in particular. If the drugs which cause death in the most humane way are not available, then the next best alternative is used instead, and should that become unavailable the process continues on down the line. The result being that each time the process becomes slightly less humane but remains within the acceptable boundaries so as not to be described as cruel and unusual punishment ...

Monday November 21st, 2011 - Chicago, IL. Well, I sure didnt expect my morale and self esteem to dip down this low this quickly - and stay there for this long. Ive had disappointments before, in fact a lifetime jam packed with them, but this particular setback sent me over the edge for some reason. Im a mess.. It snapped something deep inside, and Ive been trying to figure out exactly what that is. I thought I had a magnificent mojo and a tremendous groove for the last few months, and I did - probably my best ever, but this came out of nowhere and kicked me in the crotch.. It wasnt just the fact that a bunch of people I thought were friends let me down. It goes deeper than that. I admit I have abandonment issues, and this rattled my cage in the worst way. Whatever tweak I have deep inside took a direct hit, and now there are aftershocks.. My mother left when I was a baby, and Ive tried to deal with that my whole life and not let it get me down. For the most part I think Ive dealt with it ...
There is also widespread evidence at this time of neighbouring and hitherto autonomous settlements clustering close to one another to form "tribes." The best documented example is Tucks (1971:214-16) demonstration that two villages, one small and the other much larger, settled within a few kilometres of each other between AD 1450 and 1475 to found the Onondaga nation. The larger village was itself the result of an earlier fusion of two small ones. This drawing together of communities to form larger settlements and tribes led to the abandonment of many formerly settled areas and produced more widely separated clusters of human habitation. It also created new political groupings, each of which embraced more people than any previous ones in this part of North America had. (Trigger, 1985, p. 102) ...

In a previous blog post, we focused on the primary drivers of prescription abandonment for rheumatoid arthritis patients. But do these patients face different challenges than other patients? Well compare data from the Abandonment Insight Monitors recent survey of over 1,000 asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), hepatitis C (HCV), multiple sclerosis (MS), rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and diabetes patients to examine which challenges patients face across various disease states share, and which are unique.. The decision of a patient not to fill a new prescription is what we call primary abandonment. Hepatitis C patients had the highest rate of primary abandonment (21%), while diabetes patients had the lowest (9%). In many cases, hepatitis C does not display symptoms until liver disease becomes advanced, which may cause patients to be more likely to delay treatment. Conversely, diabetes medication is typically prescribed when diet and exercise are no longer adequately maintaining ...

There are no significant concessions. In fact, the final rule is tougher. It requires a 32 percent reduction of carbon emissions from 2005 levels by 2030, a 9 percent increase compared to the proposed rule. Thats the most important number in the whole document. The abandonment of the fourth "building block" (consumer-side energy efficiency) in determining targets is not a huge problem because the abandonment does not result in a lower nationwide target (rather EPA has adjusted its formulae to produce a higher target of 32%). In addition, states retain the option of encouraging consumer-side energy efficiency (often the cheapest tool) to meet their targets.. There are two "extensions." States have until 2022 (rather than 2020) to make cuts. Also a "safety valve" provision gives states more time if needed to avoid disruptions in the grid. But, new provisions give states incentives (carbon reduction credits) to cut emissions early and also incentives to move straight to zero-carbon energy sources, ...

In applying dynamical principles to the motion of immense numbers of atoms, the limitation of our faculties forces us to abandon the attempt to express the exact history of each atom, and to be content with estimating the average condition of a group of atoms large enough to be visible. This method... which I may call the statistical method, and which in the present state of our knowledge is the only available method of studying the properties of real bodies, involves an abandonment of strict dynamical principles, and an adoption of the mathematical methods belonging to the theory of probability. … If the actual history of Science had been different, and if the scientific doctrines most familiar to us had been those which must be expressed in this way, it is possible that we might have considered the existence of a certain kind of contingency a self evident truth, and treated the doctrine of philosophical necessity as a mere sophism. ...

Abstract This study investigates the realization of time-related positive fertility intentions using a comparative approach. Four European countries of medium size are compared, all with rather different fertility regimes: the Netherlands and Switzerland in western Europe, and Hungary and Bulgaria in the east. Using harmonized data from four panel surveys conducted in two waves between 2000 and 2007, a typology of fertility intentions and outcomes (postponement, abandonment or realization) can be constructed using multinomial logistic regressions. Age is a universal factor of success and failure in realization of intentions; above 35 years postponement and abandonment become frequent, and abandonment generally increases with age. In the eastern post-communist countries, younger age groups do not postpone as much as women around their 30s. Childless people postpone, and higher parity parents abandon more, but certain countries deviate from this pattern: Bulgarians postpone if they have one child, ...
Barbara Fallon and Nico Trocmé with the OIS-2008 Research Team recently initiated several knowledge mobilization activities. One of the OIS-2008 knowledge mobilization projects focuses on increasing research capacity in Ontario child welfare agencies. The objectives of this project include using OIS-2008 data to answer agency-driven research questions relevant to policy and practice, and to promote and facilitate collaboration among the OIS-2008 research team and child welfare agencies. Through collaboration with the OACAS and child welfare agencies across Ontario, agency representatives will work with the OIS-2008 research team over the next year to produce 15 agency-authored information sheets. Barbara Fallon is the Principal Investigator for this project and Nico Trocmé is a co-investigator, with funding provided by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.. If you work at a child welfare agency in Ontario and are interested in participating in this project, or for more ...
