Multiple determinants of externalizing behavior in 5-year-olds: a longitudinal model. (1/5)

In a community sample of 116 children, assessments of parent-child interaction, parent-child attachment, and various parental, child, and contextual characteristics at 15 and 28 months and at age 5 were used to predict externalizing behavior at age 5, as rated by parents and teachers. Hierarchical multiple regression analysis and path analysis yielded a significant longitudinal model for the prediction of age 5 externalizing behavior, with independent contributions from the following predictors: child sex, partner support reported by the caregiver, disorganized infant-parent attachment at 15 months, child anger proneness at 28 months, and one of the two parent-child interaction factors observed at 28 months, namely negative parent-child interactions. The other, i.e., a lack of effective guidance, predicted externalizing problems only in highly anger-prone children. Furthermore, mediated pathways of influence were found for the parent-child interaction at 15 months (via disorganized attachment) and parental ego-resiliency (via negative parent-child interaction at 28 months).  (+info)

Health surveillance of preschool children. (4/5)

Discussions with every general practice, health visitor, and clinical medical officer in Northumberland Health Authority led to agreement about the content of preschool health surveillance, the ages at which it should be done, and referral pathways after a failed screening test. Each primary health care team now undertakes to do a basic minimum set of screening tests, and each team decides who in the team will do each test. The screening system agreed on should enable time to become available for the equally important aspects of surveillance--namely, developmental guidance, health education, and assessment and follow up of problems. The discussions also led to agreement about how the health authority should evaluate the effect of the surveillance programme on the health of children.  (+info)

Symptom evaluation and treatment selection in the latency-aged child. (5/5)

Most latency children referred to the non-psychiatric physician with behaviour disorders do not suffer from classical neuroses, brain syndrome, retardation or psychoses. In evaluating the significance of disturbance two questions must be answered. I. Does the child have significant symptoms? This requires assessment of parental objectivity, knowledge of normal development, familiarity with developmental tasks of the period and ability to draw conclusions from observations of the child. II. How disturbed is the child? Here the basic questions are: 1. To what extent are the difficulties reactive to current stress rather than internalized? 2. How serious are the symptoms themselves? Criteria for answering these questions are provided. Comments are made on history-taking and a guide to the clinical examination is presented, together with findings indicating whether the disturbance is mild or serious. Principles for rational intervention are discussed and various treatment options are examined. Methods relatively economical of the physician's time are indicated unless clear reasons for more intensive treatment are present. If very definite improvement has not taken place within six months, psychiatric consultation should be sought.  (+info)

Each patient is individually categorized as either having a persistent CV worsening or not depending on whether they exhibit a 20% worsening of their outcome by 3 months and that level of worsening persists to 24 months. We will examine paired t-tests for each time point for each measure to test whether measures are significantly worse at each time point. We will fit longitudinal models that examine all three time points (baseline, 3 and 24 months) simultaneously to determine whether there is a linear (or some other) function that can describe the decline in these subclinical CV MRI measures ...

Objectives: Vitamin D deficiency (VDD) is common in immigrant children with increased skin pigmentation living in higher latitudes. We assessed the pattern of and risk factors for VDD in immigrant East African children living in Melbourne (latitude 37°49′ South).. Study design: A prospective survey of 232 East African children attending a clinic in Melbourne. Data were collected by questionnaire, medical assessment and laboratory tests.. Results: Low 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OHD) levels (,50 nmol/l) occurred in 87% of children, and VDD (25-OHD ,25 nmol/l) in 44%. Risk factors included age ,5 years, female gender, increased time in Australia, decreased daylight exposure and winter/spring season. Anaemia (20%), vitamin A deficiency (20%) and iron deficiency (19%) were also identified.. Conclusions: Asymptomatic VDD is common in East African immigrant children residing at a temperate latitude. Risk factors for VDD limit endogenous vitamin D production. Screening of immigrant children with ...

The use of a joint longitudinal survival model allowed us to quantify the ability of rates of change in the different parameters in predicting the risk of progression taking into account the censored aspect of the data, while also adjusting for the effect of confounding variables. For estimated RGC counts, each 10,000 cells/y faster rate of RGC loss corresponded to approximately 2.7 times higher risk of progression over time in a multivariable model adjusting for age, CCT, and IOP values acquired during follow-up. The predictive abilities of the longitudinal models were significantly better than those of models including only baseline information, as shown in Table 4. The longitudinal model including baseline and rates of change in estimated RGC counts had an R 2 of 82%, that is, this model was able to explain 82% of the variation in the outcome defined by SAP and stereophoto disc progression. Similar results were found when data were analyzed in terms of the CSFI. The longitudinal models using ...

Noelle Grabel :: Council Bluffs, Iowa :: (919) 892-5092. The problem with fundamentalists insisting on a literal interpretation of the Bible is that the meaning of words change. A prime example is Spare the rod, spoil the child. A rod was a stick used by shepherds to guide their sheep to go in the desired direction. Shepherds did not use it to beat their sheep. The proper translation of the saying is Give your child guidance, or they will go astray. It does not mean Beat the shit out of your child or he will become rotten, as many fundamentalist parents seem to believe ...

I wonder if today, in our oppressive school environment where so much time is spent in sealing off things from discussion, cultivating the idea that all cultures and beliefs are equally to be respected, the pernicious ideas behind self-esteem (it doesnt matter what is real, it matters how you feel), etc., whether we havent essentially created an intellectual environment which precludes imagination, critical-thinking, and judgment. I wonder if our school culture hasnt become one that punishes those who reach a distinct opinion based on reason and evidence, if that opinion is outside the narrow bounds of received wisdom. If, in the pursuit of diversity, we havent simply cultivated a different version of conformity ...
Early intervention is important on different levels and must be justified as a social and economic long-term investment. There is no doubt about the importance of early detection when helping children/students in need of support. What kind of support that is deemed suitable and who provides the support can be viewed from different perspectives and with different approaches. Seen from a relational perspective the special education process is a long-term process and affects not only the individual but the whole school culture and systems may need changing. This study intends to describe the importance of the learning environment and what efforts are initiated early for students in need of support from the special education point of view. As part of this, a study of a student health project was made. A triangular method of investigation was used, with document studies, questionnaires and interviews. This has been done in consultation with promoters and linked to the background by previous research ...
Lets build dynamic learning communities that engage students, promote deep understanding, and sustain a lifetime of inquiry. Once again we are in the throes of curriculum reforms designed to transform education. However, these efforts generally neglect the vital role classroom and school culture play in promoting learning. Any curriculum, good or bad, will sink or float on the culture of the classroom in which it is enacted. Culture matters not only to realize curricular goals, but also as a shaper of students development as powerful thinkers and learners. Creating Cultures of Thinking, written by leading Harvard University researcher Ron Ritchhart, builds the case for enculturation as the key to deep learning and the development of the habits of mind and dispositions needed in a changing world. He demystifies the process of creating dynamic learning communities by first identifying and then walking us through the eight forces we must marshal to build strong group culture. Case studies, ...

Muslim immigrant children fare poorly in almost all aspects of schooling and well-being. Even those who came to the West as volunteer immigrants, still face the same hurdles due to their immigration status. The differences in the school system such as curriculum, teaching approach, and assessment, as well as the kind of school are all important factors contributing to discrimination, harassment, and racism in schools. These new experiences often create confusion and frustration as the children struggle to understand the new situation. As a result, some children feel depressed and uninterested in school, which may lead them to be at risk for academic disengagement. The cultural-ecological theory of minority schooling posits that some educators position these students by placing them in low-stream tracks (Ogbu, 2003). Ogbu further asserts that current educational discourse continues to attribute Muslim immigrant students underachievement primarily to school and societal factors (e.g., tracking, ...
Decades of research indicate the important connections among academic motivation and achievement, social relationships, and school culture. However, much of this research has been conducted in homogenous American schools serving middle class, average achieving, Anglo-student populations. This book argues that school culture is a reflection of the society in which the school is embedded and comprises various aspects, including individualism, competition, cultural stereotypes, and extrinsically guided values and rewards. Chapters address three specific conceptual questions: How do differences in academic motivation for diverse groups of students change over time? How do students social cognitions influence their motivational processes and outcomes in school? And what has been done to enhance academic motivation? To answer this last question, the chapters describe empirically validated intervention programs for improving academic motivation in students from elementary school through college.

Children of Immigrants Longitudinal Study (CILS) was designed to study the adaptation process of the immigrant second generation which is defined broadly as United States-born children with at least one foreign-born parent or children born abroad but brought at an early age to the United States. The original survey was conducted with large samples of second-generation immigrant children attending the 8th and 9th grades in public and private schools in the metropolitan areas of Miami/Ft. Lauderdale in Florida and San Diego, California. Conducted in 1992, the first survey had the purpose of ascertaining baseline information on immigrant families, childrens demographic characteristics, language use, self-identities, and academic attainment. The total sample size was 5,262. Respondents came from 77 different nationalities, although the sample reflects the most sizable immigrant nationalities in each area.

I went through a phase this spring of feeling like my life was not in my hands. Ive spent time abroad before, but never this long; and although I love it here, this was a phase of culture shock I had not anticipated. I realize now that its not just the living abroad, the feeling of being mildly left out of the decisions of my own life is Foreign Service Culture Shock. I worked as a social worker with immigrant children in the States and I remember drawing out the culture shock cycle on a piece of scratch paper for them. I would explain that the fact that they were young, couldnt speak the language and, often, undocumented made their culture shock all the more complicated. I should have remembered this for myself….not that Im any of those things, but you know what I mean. Culture shock is a guide - each individual, crazy life changes the cycle. In the end, its not much a cycle at all…more like your sh** just dumped randomly out of your suitcase ...

Introduction. Scarlett Hayes, 12R1 Outline and evaluate Bowlbys theory of attachment Attachment is a strong, reciprocal, emotional bond between an infant and his or her caregiver that is characterised by the desire to maintain proximity. Attachments take different forms such as insecure and secure. Infants display attachment through the degree of separation anxiety shown when separated from the caregiver, pleasure at reunion and stranger anxiety. John Bowlby was working to find out what caused attachment from the 1940s onwards. His original theory proposed that a child must form an attachment with their primary caregiver within a very limited time or the consequence would be quite severe. His 1946 study aimed to establish the cause and effect relationship between maternal deprivation and emotional maladjustment based on his observations at his child guidance clinic. He had observed that children showing poor emotional development had often experienced separation/ deprivation and suggested that ...
Formal interventions with families to help individuals and families experiencing various kinds of problems have been a part of many cultures, probably throughout history. These interventions have sometimes involved formal procedures or rituals, and often included the extended family as well as non-kin members of the community (see for example Hooponopono). Following the emergence of specialization in various societies, these interventions were often conducted by particular members of a community - for example, a chief, priest, physician, and so on - usually as an ancillary function.[1] Family therapy as a distinct professional practice within Western cultures can be argued to have had its origins in the social work movements of the 19th century in the United Kingdom and the United States.[1] As a branch of psychotherapy, its roots can be traced somewhat later to the early 20th century with the emergence of the child guidance movement and marriage counseling.[2] The formal development of family ...
Rose Marie Arce CNN When Marta was 12, she entered the United States illegally, hoping to join her mother, who had left her in Central America years ago to search for work. Three years later she was sitting in immigration detention by herself waiting to be deported back home to her grandmother, who was dying of cancer.
CCA officials have obviously been watching the national trends toward decarceration with some trepidation. Its 2013 annual report states:. The demand for our facilities and services could be adversely affected by the relaxation of enforcement efforts, leniency in conviction or parole standards and sentencing practices or through decriminalization of certain activities that are currently proscribed by criminal laws. For instance, any changes with respect to drugs and controlled substances or illegal immigration could affect the number of persons arrested, convicted and sentenced, thereby potentially reducing demand for correctional facilities to house them.. With friends like Governor Haslam and ALEC, CCA clearly shouldnt worry too much about decreasing profits. But communities must continue to worry about who will be targeted next by racist legislation and the greedy profiteers of the private prison industry.. Governor Haslam may have provided a hint about his next target when he penned a ...

Benedicts New Evangelization will fail miserably if it starts from the premise that the loss of influence for the Church is a product of secularization. This is tantamount to a parent blaming peer pressure or high school culture for the fact their children are just growing up. Theres no question some teenagers get lost in the process of maturing, but most teenagers dont get lost, and generally survive the process as better more mature thoughtful people. Good parents learn to accept and adjust to maturing children. They even learn to relish the challenges posed by those children because there is also much growth to be found for parents in this process. In fact one of the most important lessons parents can show adult children is that growth and maturation is a continual process. It never has to end. Its what keeps us young at heart. ...
Abstract. Time to-event endpoints have been proposed as alternatives to establish the effect of anti-epileptic drugs in clinical trials. These endpoints may reduce exposure to placebo or ineffective treatments, thereby facilitating trial recruitment and improving safety. Time to baseline seizure count is defined as the number of days until a subject experienced a number of seizures equal to the baseline seizure count. A post hoc analysis of completed Phase III trails with perampanel showed that an analysis of the time to baseline count endpoint is consistent with the classical endpoints (median % seizure rate reduction, percentage of patients achieving a 50% or greater reduction in seizure frequency)1. We investigated the performance of the time to baseline seizure endpoint by (1) a post hoc analysis of topiramate and carisbamate clinical trial data and (2) clinical trial simulation using a longitudinal model for daily seizures counts. This model included key features of daily seizure count ...
A draft law unveiling the provisions and clauses concerning the acquisition of the Greek nationality and granted political rights for repatriated Greeks and legal immigrants was tabled in Parliament on Friday. Under the draft law, Greek nationality is acquired at birth by any individual being born on Greek soil under the precondition that one of the parents was born in Greece and is a legal resident of Greece since birth; by individuals who have acquired no other nationality since birth; by individuals of unknown nationality -- in case unknown nationality is not the result of lack of cooperation by the parents. Also, Greek nationality is acquired by immigrant children if they have attended school in Greece. The children of foreign nationals, who have successfully attended at least six grades of a school in Greece and permanently and legally reside in Greece, can also acquire Greek nationality. Parents should apply to have their children registered at the municipality where their permanent ...
Allison Rabenau celebrated an inauspicious milestone on the otherwise unremarkable day of Oct. 18, 2004. Six weeks into her first year as a teacher, she finally taught a class. Ms. Rabenau had left a long career as a stage manager in the commercial theater to learn how to teach English as a second language to immigrant children in New Yorks public schools. The only problem, she quickly discovered, was that the avalanche of paperwork and other assignments meant she actually got to teach only sporadically.. In a perfect, if dispiriting bit of symmetry, her initial year at Public School 123 in Harlem ended the same way it began. Ms. Rabenau lost the last six weeks of the spring term to prepare, administer, then score a standardized test for English fluency.. Essentially, her teaching year, and her students learning year, had run only from mid-October to mid-April, with numerous interruptions even then. During the time when the students were entitled to instruction in English, they were sitting in ...
Yonata Feldman served on the faculty of the Smith College School for Social Work for many years. She was born in 1892 in Estonia and studied at the Imperial University of Jurjew; her education was interrupted when the Germans invaded Russia in 1912. Before emigrating to the United States, she taught at, and was principal of, an elementary school in Estonia. She earned her M.A. from the Chicago University School of Social Service Administration in 1923, specializing in the treatment of emotionally disturbed children. From 1923 to 1928 Feldman was a social worker at the Chicago Jewish Childrens Bureau, and from 1925 to 1928 also worked with disturbed children at the Chicago Institute for Juvenile Research. From 1928 to 1961, she was employed at the Madeleine Borg Child Guidance Institute of the Jewish Board of Guardians in New York City, working her way up from caseworker to casework supervisor to "boro" supervisor. In 1950, she joined the faculty of the Smith College School for Social Work where ...

ORACLE, Ariz. - Protesters waved "Return to Sender" signs, shoved a group of mariachi musicians and waited for a bus of immigrant children that the local sheriff told them would arrive. At one point, they briefly halted a bus before realizing it was carrying children from a YMCA.. The bus of Central American children never arrived, ending a day of protest in a small Arizona town that drew more than 100 people on both sides of the immigration debate.. Sheriff Paul Babeu is credited with stirring up the anti-immigrant protesters through social media postings and a press release and by leaking information about the migrants arrival to a local activist. The Sycamore Canyon Academy acknowledged that it had an agreement with the Department of Health and Human Services to take in a "small number" of immigrant children from Central America, but it did not specify how many and when they would arrive.. "All this was done in secrecy, and thats where a lot of people are upset," Babeu said Tuesday. "My ...
Results: In total, 545 pts with RA were included (PP, n=79 [14.5%]; NPP, n=466 [85.5%]). At baseline, PP pts were older, but other characteristics were similar (Table). DAS28 (CRP) and HAQ scores were similar between groups at 6 months (median [interquartile range (IQR)] DAS28 [CRP]: PP, 3.03 [2.4, 4.1] vs NPP, 3.2 [2.3, 4.3], coefficient -0.11, 95% CI -0.52, 0.29; HAQ: PP, 0.88 [0.25, 1.50] vs NPP, 0.63 [0.13, 1.25], incidence rate ratio [IRR] 1.12, 95% CI 0.76, 1.64) and 1 year (median [IQR] DAS28 [CRP]: PP, 2.98 [2.25, 3.75] vs NPP, 3.00 [2.05, 4.05], coefficient 0.02, 95% CI -0.39, 0.43; HAQ: PP, 0.75 [0.13, 1.38] vs NPP, 0.63 [0.00, 1.25], IRR 1.12, 95% CI 0.76, 1.64). Similar results were seen when using longitudinal models to combine all the repeated measures (DAS28 [CRP]: coefficient -0.02, 95% CI -0.30, 0.26; HAQ: IRR 1.17, 95% CI 0.92, 1.48).. Conclusion: Treatment response is similar in pts with and without poor prognostic factors. These results suggest that, at this early stage of ...

Charlotte Towle (1896-1966) was born and raised in Butte, Montana. She received a BA in education from Goucher College (1919), but after graduation accepted a job with the American Red Cross which strengthened her interest in social work. With the aid of a Commonwealth Fund fellowship, she attended the New York School of Social Work, completing her studies in psychiatric social work in 1926. For two years she was director of the Home Finding Department of The Childrens Aid Society of Philadelphia, and from 1928 to 1932 she gained experience in casework supervision and further training in psychiatric social work at the Institute for Child Guidance in New York. Established by the Commonwealth Fund as a model clinic, the Institute was in the forefront of psychiatric social work theory and practice. Towle served as the Institutes fieldwork supervisor for students from the New York and Smith College schools of social work. In 1932 Towle accepted an appointment to the faculty of the School of Social ...
Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health (JPHCOPH) at Georgia Southern University welcomes their new dean, Dr. Gregory Evans. Dr. Evans is coming to JPHCOPH from Saint Louis University School of Public Health. When asked about his thoughts about this new opportunity, Dr. Evans said, It is with great anticipation that I join Georgia Southern University as dean of the JPHCOPH. The school, despite its relative newness, already has an impressive teaching and research record. I plan to capitalize on these strengths to help increase national recognition for the school, while simultaneously recognizing the importance of service to the college, university, community, and the field of Public Health. To this end, it is crucial that I partner with faculty, staff and students of the school to develop a school culture based on shared values, goals, and sense of purpose. It will be a culture of encouragement and empowerment: A culture in which all stake-holders have a voice: A culture that understands the importance
The pattern of longitudinal changes in cholesterol levels has important implications for screening policies and for understanding the role of cholesterol as a risk factor for coronary heart disease. We explored a variety of longitudinal models to predict changes in cholesterol over several years, emphasizing the probability that an individual will develop a cholesterol level that requires further diagnostic tests or treatment. The first question was whether measured cholesterol is Markovian. A chi-square statistic based on the bootstrap and motivated by the Chapman-Kolmogorov equations established that it is not. Related bootstrap-based tests indicate that the probability structure of measured cholesterol is not that of a low order autoregressive moving average (ARMA) model. We then tested several alternative models to predict future cholesterol levels from the pattern of previous measured values, using receiver-operating characteristic (ROC) curves to summarize the sensitivity and specificity ...

At a forum held April 9, 2007 in Milford, the Massachusetts Office of Educational Quality and Accountability (MA EQA) and the University of Massachusetts Donahue Institute presented findings and facilitated discussion of a two-year study of factors influencing achievement in the Commonwealths urban public schools. The study, titled Gaining Traction: Urban Educators Perspectives on the Critical Factors Influencing Student Achievement in Comparatively High and Low Performing Urban Public Schools, involved extensive analysis of MCAS student achievement data and interviews with over 600 educators from 30 public schools in 10 urban districts.. The study found that higher performing schools displayed greater focus and competency in three broad areas of practice: leadership and staffing; school culture; and curriculum and instruction. The study report outlines specific strategies employed by higher performing schools with respect to each of these areas of practice and presents illustrative case ...
WHEREAS, changes in federal law which occurred on August 22, 1996, have resulted in a large number of legal immigrant children and legal immigrants who are aged, blind or disabled, living in New Jersey prior to August 22, 1996, losing their access to federal food stamp assistance; and WHEREAS, federal law was subsequently amended on June 12, 1997, to allow states to retain, at their own expense, certain former aspects of this food stamp program; and WHEREAS, the vast majority of these legal immigrants depend upon the food stamp assistance to feed themselves and their dependents; and WHEREAS, the health and welfare of the approximately 10,000 households which include children and the aged, blind or disabled persons affected by the cessation of federal assistance will be detrimentally impacted; and WHEREAS, the Department of Human Services total budget for Fiscal Year 1998 contains funds in anticipation of changes in federal law and the loss of federal assistance for certain populations which ...
The original version of the DREAM Act was introduced on April 25, 2001 by Representative Luis Gutiérrez, Democrat from Illinois, as the "Immigrant Childrens Educational Advancement and Dropout Prevention Act of 2001" (H.R. 1582) during the 107th Congress. This bill received 34 cosponsors, and would have allowed illegal immigrant students to first apply to be protected from deportation and then apply for and receive lawful permanent residency if they met the criteria.[20]. One month later, on May 21, 2001, Gutiérrezs version of the bill was scrapped in favor of a more limited version entitled "Student Adjustment Act of 2001" (H.R. 1918), introduced by Representative Chris Cannon, Republican from Utah. This version of the bill lowered age eligibility to 21 years of age and garnered 62 cosponsors. On August 1, 2001 a mirror bill to the "Student Adjustment Act of 2001" was introduced in the Senate by Senator Orrin Hatch, also a Republican from Utah. This legislation, S. 1291, was the first bill ...
Catalonia (Spain), this paper intends to analyse the impact of the family language and the generational cohort on the language attitudes towards Catalan and Spanish that is built by immigrant children (aged 14-16). The nature of the analysis carried out as a result of an attitude questionnaire answered by 527 young people allows differentiation of the effect of both variables individually when included in the same explanatory model. Results indicate that being Spanish-speaking or non-Spanish-speaking is influential in the construction of attitudes towards Spanish and towards Catalan. Moreover, the generational cohort is only influential for attitudes towards Catalan and when a migratory transit has been experienced or not. Since both variables are included in the same model, it is suggested that the effect of the generational cohort is moderated by being Spanish-speaking or not. The new perspectives opened up by these results are discussed as regards the promotion of intercultural communication ...
One afternoon on the bus, I bumped into the mother of a patient from the clinic where I supervise 4th year students. Their family recently immigrated from Korea and her 5 year old daughter doesnt have medicare coverage yet, so they found their way to the McGill Paediatric Clinic at the MCH, which provides free care for refugees and recent immigrant children. During our bus ride across the city, she shared with me how impressed she was with the care and attention her daughter received at each visit. The extra time taken to explain the treatment plan and hygiene advice was appreciated, since English and French are still new languages for her and her daughter. She was very grateful not only for the free dental care, but also that it was delivered with warmth and kindness. What brought the biggest smile to my face was when she said "Now flossing is fun! My daughter asks me to floss because we have the sticker chart;" a simple calendar decorated with a cartoon toothbrush, toothpaste and floss I made ...

Background Young people in the UK have among the worst health in Europe with marked inequalities across the social scale. Substance use and violence are highly prevalent and damaging to young peoples long-term health. There are increasing calls for adolescent health interventions to address multiple rather than single risk behaviours because such behaviours cluster together and because such interventions are potentially more feasible and efficient. Positive youth development (PYD) is one such intervention to address inter-clustered risk behaviours among young people. The National Youth Agency defines such interventions as voluntary and informal educational activities aiming to bring about generalised youth development in terms of positive assets such as skills, relationships and confidence, rather than merely remedying problem behaviours. We systematically reviewed outcome evaluations testing the effectiveness of PYD interventions on preventing substance use and violence in young people. ...
Collective teacher efficacy is a social construct in schools defined as teachers sense of group effectiveness. This is a powerful construct whereby teachers perceptions are a driving force for school culture and student achievement. This cross-sectional study used a quantitative approach to examine teachers collective efficacy as it relates to their perceptions of supervisory practices. Correlational and predictive analyses were performed to analyze the degree of the relationship between collective efficacy and supervisory practices. Additionally, this study examined teachers perceptions of strong instructional leadership as it relates to the instructional leadership strategies used by supervisors in 14 schools in one school district. The purpose of this study was to make clear statements for school leaders in regard to the strategies that are associated with teachers perceptions of collective efficacy and teachers perceptions of strong instructional leadership. The strategies studied for ...
My research can be broadly defined as understanding the developmental pathways towards behavioral problems and competence in childhood and adolescence. Taking a developmental psychopathology perspective, I am particularly interested in the following processes/aspects of development: a) temperament, or the constitutionally-based individual differences in emotional, motor, and attentional reactivity and regulation; b) emotion-related processing, including emotion regulation, emotionality, appraisal of and coping with stressors; c) family socialization, including parenting, parent-child and family relationship; and d) the larger socio-cultural context, including cultural values and norms. I investigate these questions in a variety of child/adolescent populations, including normative children and children at risk for maladjustment (e.g., children from divorced families, immigrant children), children of different cultural/ethnic backgrounds (e.g., European American, Chinese American, and native ...
