Teenage mothers and their peers: a research challenge. (1/1946)

Recent reports have highlighted the adverse health experience of teenage mothers. The question of how these mothers' perceptions of their own health status and social networks differ from those of their nulliparous peers is explored in this pilot study, which highlights some practical problems associated with research in this important field.  (+info)

Loud, sad or bad: young people's perceptions of peer groups and smoking. (2/1946)

This paper suggests that most 13 year olds and many 11 year olds have a clear and detailed grasp of their own social map, recognize the pecking order which is established amongst their peers and are aware of the different levels of risk-taking behaviour, including smoking, adopted by different peer groups in their school year. Thirty six 11 year olds and 40 13 year olds took part in the study. Their remarkably consistent views about which pupils adopt or reject smoking are closely related to their perceptions of their social map. Their accounts differentiate top girls, top boys, middle pupils, low-status pupils, trouble-makers and loners, associating smoking behaviour consistently with three of the five groups--the top girls, the low-status pupils and the trouble makers. Top boys, although sharing many of the characteristics of top girls, have an added protection factor--their keen interest in football and physical fitness. From their descriptions, it is apparent that different groups of pupils smoke for different reasons which are related to pecking order and group membership. The implications of these young people's views for health education programmes to prevent smoking and other risk-taking behaviours are far reaching.  (+info)

Planning with PRA: HIV and STD in a Nepalese mountain community. (3/1946)

The application of Participatory Rural Appraisal methods (PRA) to the topic of sexual health enabled us to explore key factors concerning local people's perceptions regarding HIV/AIDS and STDs and to plan collectively to address the emerging issues. Conducting the process in a gender sensitive way enabled people to feel safe enough to express their own opinions, and having gained confidence in their peer groups, to share ideas later with the whole community in a joint planning exercise. Nevertheless one group was identified as difficult to reach and whose needs could not be met in a group for reasons of confidentiality. While the methodology itself clearly has great potential in planning around specific health issues, there are, nevertheless, limitations. Although the approach and the tools used are simple and accessible, the skills needed to analyze the information are more complex and demanding. The training given did not manage to equip facilitators adequately with these analytical skills and in the future will be more experience based and geared towards developing analysis and the ability to formulate questions. In addition, since the project is not permanently resident in the area, intensive support within the District is necessary to increase the chances of sustainability.  (+info)

Is peer tutoring beneficial in the context of school resuscitation training? (4/1946)

First year pupils at a Cardiff comprehensive school were trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation, 106 by the teacher only and 137 by the teacher assisted by older pupils (peer tutoring). Scores in a multiple choice theory test and in practical skill assessment showed no significant difference between instruction methods, but boys taught by the teacher assisted by older pupils expressed less willingness to resuscitate in an emergency than girls instructed by either method (P < 0.01). Girls had higher scores in the multiple choice paper (P < 0.025) and in the skills assessment (P < 0.01). Those pupils who reported some prior knowledge of resuscitation techniques performed better during skill assessment than novice trainees (P < 0.025).  (+info)

The relation between behavior problems and peer preference in different classroom contexts. Conduct Problems Prevention Research Group. (5/1946)

This study tested two alternative hypotheses regarding the relations between child behavior and peer preference. The first hypothesis is generated from the person-group similarity model, which predicts that the acceptability of social behaviors will vary as a function of peer group norms. The second hypothesis is generated by the social skill model, which predicts that behavioral skill deficiencies reduce and behavioral competencies enhance peer preference. A total of 2895 children in 134 regular first-grade classrooms participated in the study. Hierarchical linear modeling was used to compare four different behaviors as predictors of peer preference in the context of classrooms with varying levels of these behavior problems. The results of the study supported both predictive models, with the acceptability of aggression and withdrawal varying across classrooms (following a person-group similarity model) and the effects of inattentive/hyperactive behavior (in a negative direction) and prosocial behavior (in a positive direction) following a social skill model and remaining constant in their associations with peer preference across classrooms. Gender differences also emerged, with aggression following the person-group similarity model for boys more strongly than for girls. The effects of both child behaviors and the peer group context on peer preference and on the trajectory of social development are discussed.  (+info)

Behavioural intervention trials for HIV/STD prevention in schools: are they feasible? (6/1946)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the feasibility of conducting a large randomised controlled trial (RCT) of peer led intervention in schools to reduce the risk of HIV/STD and promote sexual health. METHODS: Four secondary schools in Greater London were randomly assigned to receive peer led intervention (two experimental schools) or to act as control schools. In the experimental schools, trained volunteers aged 16-17 years (year 12) delivered the peer led intervention to 13-14 year old pupils (year 9). In the control schools, year 9 pupils received the usual teacher led sex education. Questionnaire data collected from year 9 pupils at baseline included views on the quality of sex education/intervention received, and knowledge and attitudes about HIV/AIDS and other sexual matters. Focus groups were also conducted with peer educators and year 9 pupils. Data on the process of delivering sex education/intervention and on attitudes to the RCT were collected for each of the schools. Analysis focused on the acceptability of a randomised trial to schools, parents, and pupils. RESULTS: Nearly 500 parents were informed about the research and invited to examine the study questionnaire; only nine raised questions and only one pupil was withdrawn from the study. Questionnaire completion rates were around 90% in all schools. At baseline, the majority of year 9 pupils wanted more information about a wide range of sexual matters. Focus group work indicated considerable enthusiasm for peer led education, among peer educators and year 9 pupils. Class discipline was the most frequently noted problem with the delivery of the peer led intervention. CONCLUSION: Evaluation of a peer led behavioural intervention through an RCT can be acceptable to schools, pupils, and parents and is feasible in practice. In general, pupils who received the peer led intervention responded more positively than those in control schools. A large RCT of the long term (5-7 year) effects of this novel intervention on sexual health outcomes is now under way.  (+info)

An expansion of the peer-tutoring paradigm: cross-age peer tutoring of social skills among socially rejected boys. (7/1946)

We examined the effects of a cross-age peer-tutoring program on the social skills of 2 sixth-grade and 2 kindergarten socially rejected and isolated boys. Peer tutoring consisted of the older boys conducting social skills training with their younger tutees. The frequency of positive social interactions increased for all 4 boys, with maintenance of treatment gains following a 5-week interval.  (+info)

Practical approaches to reduce the impact of bullying. (8/1946)

Bullying has serious long term consequences for all concerned. The cost of ignoring bullying is great, and it is no longer acceptable to view bullying as a normal part of everyday life that children have to learn to tolerate. Effective strategies exist to reduce the frequency of bullying and to make this type of aggressive behaviour less likely to occur.  (+info)

What are some good examples of negative peer pressure - Can peer pressure ever be good for my child? Depends on type. Certainly peer pressure to drink alcohol, do drugs, have sex, etc. Has very negative implications for the one being pressured or bullied. However, in other environments peer pressure can help kids stay away from these things and do better in school.
Innovative and sustainable programs are required to support the well-being of stroke survivors. Peer support is a potentially low cost way to enhance well-being of recent stroke survivors and the well-being and community reintegration of their peer supporters. This article describes the perceptions of stroke survivors, care partners, peer supporters, and professionals of an individual peer support program. An instrumental case study design was used to examine a volunteer peer support program that provides acute care visits and telephone follow-up post-discharge. In particular, a) type of support provided, b) benefits for the stroke survivor and care partner, c) potential harms to the stroke survivor, d) impact of providing support on the peer supporter, and e) required processes were considered. Semi-structured interviews were carried out with 16 new stroke survivors and 8 care partners immediately following hospital discharge and then 6 months later, and with 7 peer supporters, 3 program co-ordinators
The use of peer-based recovery support has grown substantially in the last five years. However, given ongoing high rates of opioid overdose and addiction, another peer-based workforce has not received enough attention: peers who use drugs. Just as there is a long history of peers in recovery supporting peers seeking recovery, there is a similarly long history of drug-using peers helping one another stay safe and alive. This presentation describes a peer-based program that employs people who use drugs to distribute naloxone and sterile injection equipment in Pittsburgh, PA. It reviews basic harm reduction principles, the peer-based program model, and data on program effectiveness.. ...

A variety of public campaigns, including the Just Say No campaign of the 1980s and 1990s that encouraged teenagers to Just Say No to Drugs, are based on the premise that teenagers are very susceptible to peer influences. Despite this, very little is known about the effect of school peers on the long-run outcomes of teenagers. This is primarily due to two factors: the absence of information on peers merged with long-run outcomes of individuals and, equally important, the difficulty of separately identifying the role of peers. This paper uses data on the population of Norway and idiosyncratic variation in cohort composition within schools to examine the role of peer composition in 9th grade on longer-run outcomes such as IQ scores at age 18, teenage childbearing, post-compulsory schooling educational track, adult labor market status, and earnings. We find that outcomes are influenced by the proportion of females in the grade, and these effects differ for men and women. Other peer variables ...
The provision of antiretroviral therapy (ART) in rural, resource-limited settings entails substantial challenges due to limitations in the health service infrastructure and in human resources for HIV/AIDS care. In addition, long geographical distances between providers, care facilities, and patients can represent a significant barrier to appropriate and timely care. The use of peer health workers as frontline adherence supporters and clinical monitors in order to improve care in underserviced settings has been implemented by a number of programs, but the effect of peer support on HIV care outcomes has not been extensively evaluated. Mobile phones have also been proposed as a potential method of improving access to health care in resource-limited environments by expediting communication and data transfer, but rigorous studies on their effectiveness in Africa have not yet been conducted..

Since 2000, peer-mediated interventions among female sex workers (FSW) in Mombasa Kenya have promoted behavioural change through improving knowledge, attitudes and awareness of HIV serostatus, and aimed to prevent HIV and other sexually transmitted infection (STI) by facilitating early STI treatment. Impact of these interventions was evaluated among those who attended peer education and at the FSW population level. A pre-intervention survey in 2000, recruited 503 FSW using snowball sampling. Thereafter, peer educators provided STI/HIV education, condoms, and facilitated HIV testing, treatment and care services. In 2005, data were collected using identical survey methods, allowing comparison with historical controls, and between FSW who had or had not received peer interventions. Over five years, sex work became predominately a full-time activity, with increased mean sexual partners (2.8 versus 4.9/week; P | 0.001). Consistent condom use with clients increased from 28.8% (145/503) to 70.4% (356/506; P |

Many school going adolescents still thought to face issues regarding risky sexual behaviours and this has been attributed to drug abuse they are exposed to through peer pressure while they are still young as well as exploring with their lives that is assumed to make them vulnerable to risky sexual behaviours. This research set out to examine the relationship between peer pressure, drug abuse and risky sexual behaviours among adolescents. A correlational study design that is quantitative and descriptive was adopted to establish the relationship between the variables. A total of 100 respondents, both male and female participated in the study. Data collected was analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS), where Pearson Correlation Coefficient (r) was used to test the significance of the hypotheses. The study revealed that there is no significant relationship between peer pressure and drug abuse among adolescents; the study also revealed that there is no significant relationship ...

Group membership, loyalty, and weight are highly relevant for adolescent peer evaluations at school. This research tested how in-group/out-group membership affected judgments of peers who deviated from social norms for weight and loyalty. Two hundred and forty 11-13-year-olds (49 percent female; 94 percent Caucasian) judged two in-group or out-group peers: one was normative (loyal and average weight) and the other was non-normative (i.e., deviant). The deviant target was overweight, disloyal to their own group (school), or both (doubly deviant). Derogation of overweight relative to average weight peers was greater if they were in-group rather than out-group members, revealing a strong black sheep effect for overweight peers. Disloyal out-group deviants were judged favorably, but this effect was eliminated if they were doubly deviant, suggesting that their disloyalty was insufficient to overcome the overweight stigma. Consistent with developmental subjective group dynamics theory, effects ...

We know that one of the key purposes of play is socialization, says Katie Salen, a professor at the University of California, Irvine, who studies game design and learning. By around 3-years-old, kids begin to play productively with one another and engage in peer-based play, which helps kids learn how to make friends and interact with other people. Once they enter pre-adolescence, its very peer-based, she explains. The play and experimentation is very much rooted in the peer group and issues of exploring identity and friendship and belonging..

This study explored how peer deviant behavior and peer drug use differentially mediated the paths from unsupportive parenting to youth externalizing behavior and both the probability and extent of current drug use in a sample of Venezuelan youth. Models were further extended to test for group differences by gender and age. Results suggested that peer influences are domain specific among Venezuelan youth. That is, deviant peer behavior mediated the path from unsupportive parenting to youth externalizing behaviors, and peer drug use mediated the path to the drug use outcome. Mediation effects were partial, suggesting that parenting influenced the outcomes beyond its impact on affiliations with negative peers. Notable exceptions to the models were found when moderated by either gender or age. Implications for the development of screening tools and for formulating intervention programs targeting this age group are discussed.
As government policy moves towards a more transparent process of quality control in health care, emphasis on the education of doctors becomes greater. For those in non-training grades, this education is provided in the form of CPD. The response to this survey implies that the vast majority who need to register will already have registered, although staff grade doctors may be one possible area of concern. Owing to varying rates of return, results would appear to be generalisable for consultant staff but not necessarily for staff grades and associate specialists.. In psychiatry, CPD will be prospectively planned with the aid of a peer group. However, from this survey, under half of respondents thought peer groups alone should be involved in CPD planning, while over a quarter thought peer groups should not be involved at all. Of those rejecting peer groups for CPD planning, a majority thought another key individual should be involved, such as the medical director or lead consultant.. Regarding peer ...

Peer support has found applications beyond the mental health field and is useful for managing several chronic disorders and supporting healthy lifestyle choices. Communication through telephone and the Internet allows for greater access to those who cannot meet in person. Adolescent chronic pain would seem ideally suited to benefit from online peer support groups. Research is lacking, however, to characterize benefit in terms of pain and function, despite a clear desire among adolescents for access to such programs. More rapid development of online applications is needed for peer support, and research into the associated outcomes will be necessary to optimally design such programs ...
A distributed computer system that enables end users to evaluate a brokers trade settlement performance by market and across multiple markets in terms of how many of the brokers trades failed. Trades are defined as having failed when the actual settle date exceeds the date on which the trade should have settled. The system analyzes trade settlement statistics about each broker within the context of a selected broker peer group, and ranks and compares a brokers settlement performance relative to the peer group. The system also ranks the brokers based on a set of metrics relative to the selected peer group. A brokers peer group is defined in terms of the brokers relative size within the trade universe as determined by trade count.

TY - JOUR. T1 - The Double Standard at Sexual Debut. T2 - Gender, Sexual Behavior and Adolescent Peer Acceptance. AU - Kreager, Derek A.. AU - Staff, Jeremy. AU - Gauthier, Robin. AU - Lefkowitz, Eva S.. AU - Feinberg, Mark E.. PY - 2016/10/1. Y1 - 2016/10/1. N2 - A sexual double standard in adolescence has important implications for sexual development and gender inequality. The present study uses longitudinal social network data (N = 914; 11-16 years of age) to test if gender moderates associations between adolescents sexual behaviors and peer acceptance. Consistent with a traditional sexual double standard, female adolescents who reported having sex had significant decreases in peer acceptance over time, whereas male adolescents reporting the same behavior had significant increases in peer acceptance. This pattern was observed net of respondents own perceived friendships, further suggesting that the social responses to sex vary by gender of the sexual actor. However, findings for making ...
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The workplace HIV and AIDS peer educators were recruited by the Department of Correctional Services in order to render education, awareness and preventative programmes to employees on HIV and AIDS. However, there is lack of endeavor that is being seen in these peer educators concerning the provision of the required services. The study investigated the factors inhibiting the implementation of workplace HIV and AIDS peer education programme of Durban Correctional System in order to identify areas that need strengthening so that intervention measures can ensure the success of the endeavour. Findings indicated the need of HIV and AIDS training of supervisors and line managers concerning the impact of HIV and AIDS in the workplace as well as the roles and responsibilities to be undertaken by them to combat the spread and effects of the epidemic hence management support and participation is regarded as a key intervention strategy in the management of HIV and AIDS. The study also ...
European Journal of Special Needs Education Internationally and in Ireland, the adoption of inclusive education frameworks have been broadly welcomed, particularly by parents of children with special educational needs (SEN). Mainstreaming these children is generally viewed as positive primarily because of the social factors associated with attending mainstream schools for children with SEN. Despite this commonly held view, there is increasing evidence to show that children with SEN have difficulties participating in mainstream environments. Using data from the Growing Up in Ireland study of 8,578 nine year olds, this paper examines whether peer relations differ among typically developing students and students with different types of SEN. We focus on the quantity and quality of peer relations using data on the childs number of friends and, using the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire, the quality of relations with their peers. These measures are examined by controlling for a range of ...
Abstract: Children with autism experience deficits in social and communication skills compared to their typically developing peers. Quality parental behaviors during dyadic interactions and childrens expressive language ability could be important predictors of peer social competence during early childhood, especially for children with autism. This study examines the relations between parental behaviors, child expressive language ability, and peer social competence for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and a comparison group of typically developing (TD) children. Secondary data from the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study-Birth Cohort (ECLS-B), a nationally representative longitudinal study following a sample of children born in the U.S. in 2001 from birth through kindergarten entry, were analyzed. Two subgroups of young children with and without a parent-reported diagnosis of autism were analyzed to understand the relative importance of parental behaviors and child expressive language ...
The dissertation is an initial investigation of a peer mentoring program in a suburban high school in the southeastern United States. Additionally, the Peer Mentoring Program (PMP) study examined whether the Program improves academic performance and attendance, and decreases referrals. Utilizing an experimental design, a Participant and a Nonparticipant group were compared based on archival summative data. The Participant group met with a 10th-12th grade assigned peer mentor, while the Nonparticipant group with equal group qualifications, did not. Quantitative analysis, resultant from an independent t-test and d effect size analysis for each inquiry, with further application of the Welch t test to the attendance data and the additional Mann-Whitney U test to the referrals data, provided interpretive results. Findings revealed the increased likelihood of the PMP to improve attendance. Findings further indicated the schools Peer Mentoring Program did not improve academic performance

Adjusting by individual-level confounding factors, the MSEM model showed deviant peer associations as being the greatest influence for both types of adolescent aggressive behaviour, followed by harsh discipline. By contrast, parental supervision and pro-social peers exerted a very important protective role, particularly against delinquent behaviour. Consistent with three-level Rasch model results, neighbourhood social processes did not predict adolescents aggressive behaviour. The left-hand side of the Figure shows that structural neighbourhood factors indirectly exerted their effect on aggression and delinquency by increasing the risk of poor parenting and greater deviant peer affiliation.. DISCUSSION. This paper has investigated pathways linking neighbourhood characteristics to individual-level aggression and delinquency. The significance of the indirect effects indicated that structural neighbourhood conditions were important for adolescents aggressive behaviour, given that although they ...

Peer delinquency is often associated with the development of juvenile delinquency. Some have even reported that peer deviance wholly mediates the relationship between parenting behaviors and adolescent delinquency (Chung & Steinberg, 2006). Multiple studies provide empirical support for the association between peer delinquency and increased delinquency (Fite et al., 2012; Taylor et al., 2000; Crnic & Greenberg, 2001), though the reason for this association is not clear. Potentially, peer encouragement to commit delinquent acts may result in increased delinquency (Mulder et al., 2011; Fossum et al., 2008). Conversely, some research has found that peer group norms that do not support physical aggression serve to reduce the effects of a genetic predisposition to develop aggressive behavior, further highlighting the importance of peer group on the development of antisocial behaviors (Brendgen et al., 2013; May & Beaver, 2014). In a study that examined the interactive effects between contextual risk ...
It is unclear whether there is variation in the impact of intimate partner violence (IPV) on child peer problems, and which individual and environmental factors might predict such variation. This study uses data from 7,712 children (3,974, 51.5% boys) aged 4 from the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC). Children were cross-categorized based on exposure to IPV from birth to 3 years, and mother-rated peer problems at age 4, into 4 groups: Resilient, Non-resilient, Vulnerable and Competent. Between-group differences in maternal depression, maternal life events, parenting, attachment, and temperament were analyzed, and these variables were also examined as predictors of group membership. Girls were more likely to be identified as resilient. In contrast to the non-resilient group, resilient boys were less emotional, had more secure attachment to their mothers, more interaction with their mothers partner, and their mothers reported fewer life events. For girls, the resilient ...

Challenges in peer interaction are commonly associated with autism, both within research literature and through first-person accounts. Related intervention studies have tended toward a skills-based approach that emphasizes remediating perceived social deficits in the autistic individual, with most of the literature focusing on children who are classified as high functioning due to their verbal skills and/or typical IQ scores. Limitations in this skills-based approach have led to the development of a supports-based approach-based largely on a distributed model of communication-as an alternative way to facilitate peer interactions involving autistic students (Vidal, Robertson, & DeThorne, 2018). This supports-based approach prioritizes egalitarian interactions, participation in shared activities, and flexible access to multimodal communicative resources. The present mixed methods study was designed to examine the communication profile and peer interactions of John, a 9-year-old autistic child ...

Relational aggression (i.e., harming the victims relationships, reputation/status, or feelings of belongingness) is associated with a number of adverse correlates among college students (Dahlen, Czar, Prather, & Dyess, 2013; Ostrov & Houston, 2008). Peer exclusivity (i.e., the desire that ones close friends do not have other close friends) has been shown to be positively related to relational aggression in peer relationships (Kawabata, Youngblood, & Hamaguchi, 2014); however, this relationship has not been widely explored. Anxiety is also relevant to relational aggression among college students (Cooley, Frazer, Fite, Brown, & DiPierro, 2016; Gros, Gros, & Simms, 2010) and may inform our understanding of the relationship between peer exclusivity and relational aggression. The present study examined the relationships of peer exclusivity and anxiety symptoms to relational aggression in a sample of traditionally aged (i.e., 18-25) college students (N = 260) recruited from the University of Southern

Wayne Osgoods research concerns crime and deviance over the life course, especially during the period of dramatic change from early adolescence through the first decade of adulthood. He is especially interested in the role of peer relations and time use in the growth and decline of delinquency and substance use over this span. Evaluating the effectiveness of programs addressing these behaviors is also an important aspect of his work. Currently, his principal research project is the PROSPER Peers study, which investigates evolving friendship networks across the full span of adolescence. It is the largest long-term study of adolescent social networks. Funded by National Institute of Drug Abuse through 2018, the PROSPER Peers study follows the friendship networks and problem behavior of two grade cohorts of adolescents in 27 small communities of Iowa and Pennsylvania (over 10,000 youth) on eight occasions from 6th through 12th grade. ...

Peer support or mutual support has a long history in mental health. Recent developments mean that peer support, which originated informally through participation in service user groups, has become incorporated into statutory services through the use of employed intentional support roles. The purpose of this paper is to explore service user perspectives on peer support, particularly looking at the benefits and pitfalls of these developments. The paper is informed by a literature review, and by a series of consultations with 5 service user and peer support groups. The findings suggest that there are many benefits to service users from engaging in peer support, including: shared identity; development and sharing of skills; increased confidence; improved mental health and wellbeing; and the potential for challenging stigma and discrimination. Most of the challenges were associated with intentional support, including: role conflict; setting boundaries; and ensuring adequate training and support. A ...

A true peer group comparison shows our facility near the middle of the 3rd quartile. That isnt a great position and indicates a need for additional analysis to see why our costs are so high.. To reduce our maintenance costs, the next step in the process would be to see which Best Practices are being employed by the buildings that our to the left of ours in the chart. We then can see what we may do differently in our facility. Well present more on this in next months article.. In conclusion you can see how the application of filters can impact your relative rankings in a very significant way. This allows for comparisons to a more similar peer group and is a much more effective way of using benchmarking tools. ...
Since the virtual world seems to lack the two most important sensory delights of the food world-smell and taste-it might not seem like the ideal place for foodies to gather. But its been a popular hangout, or rather, Hangouts, with cooking classes being one of the more innovative uses of the video chat feature. Cooking enthusiasts Lee Allison and Eric McKee run The Social Skillet, which gives Google+ users the chance twice a week to roll up their sleeves in their own kitchens. They can make dishes like crab Rangoon and Japanese beef rolls with the guidance of an instructor and the encouragement of nine other students attempting the same meal. Cooking collective Studiofeast gave fans who missed its Doppelganger Dinner a taste of the event, which matched omnivore dishes with a vegetarian lookalike, by hosting and then broadcasting a Hangout.

We have successfully applied simple questionnaire-based methods to measure social networks within complete primary school classes, and in some cases complete schools, in Britain. The networks of reported social contacts demonstrate a great deal of complex structure, with important implications for the spread of infectious diseases and the interpretation of epidemiological data. There is a striking segregation between the genders, with very little reported social communication between boys and girls, and tight, internally connected cliques that become more evident in older groups. Sociological studies have consistently found similar patterns of sex bias and clustering in school peer networks [10-15]. However, no study to our knowledge has attempted to survey exhaustively entire school populations or considered the implications of detailed school mixing patterns for disease transmission.. Interpreting social contact networks in an epidemiological context can be delicate as there is no clear ...
Whilst neurological and physical effects of addiction have been widely documented and studied, the genetic risk factors for amphetamine abuse in genetics remains challenging and often contradictory.. The Nature vs Nurture saying is better phrased as a Nature and Nurture in the case of addiction as research has shown a strong correlation between the environment you grew up in (family, social, education & economic) and the actual gene sequencing within your body.. Generally, positive family influences, such as family bonding and consistent rules, appear to reduce the risk of drug abuse among teens, while negative family influences tend to increase risk. The same is true of positive and negative peer factors. ...
When I was diagnosed with breast cancer at a young age I felt very isolated and alone. All the women who were in my support group were much older than me and while I could relate to the symptoms and side-effects they were experiencing, I longed to have someone to talk to who understood the unique psycho-social aspects of a disease which isolated me from my healthy peers. I turned online for that support and its been an important part of my recovery. ReplyDelete ...
Traditional scientific workflow platforms usually run individual experiments with little evaluation and analysis of performance as required by automated experimentation in which scientists are being allowed to access numerous applicable workflows rather than being committed to a single one. Experimental protocols and data under a peer-to-peer environment could potentially be shared freely without any single point of authority to dictate how experiments should be run. In such environment it is necessary to have mechanisms by which each individual scientist (peer) can assess, locally, how he or she wants to be involved with others in experiments. This study aims to implement and demonstrate simple peer ranking under the OpenKnowledge peer-to-peer infrastructure by both simulated and real-world bioinformatics experiments involving multi-agent interactions. A simulated experiment environment with a peer ranking capability was specified by the Lightweight Coordination Calculus (LCC) and automatically

Peer Mentoring: We use Peer Mentoring in our volunteer on-boarding process, where volunteers sit with other volunteers to learn how our agency operates and how to counsel consumers on Medicare. They often exchange personal phone numbers and rely on each other to provide a network of support. In addition to program staff, the option to call another volunteer for support has created a sense of community and an environment where volunteers feel valued. Peer mentoring helped relieve the time-consuming task of mentoring a volunteer from program staff. In the process, it helped engage and offer a renewed sense of collegiality for our existing pool of volunteers ...

We examine how firms can create word of mouth peer influence and social contagion by incorporating viral features into the design of their products. Evaluating the effects of such product design decisions on social contagion is difficult because econometric identification of peer influence is non-trivial. Although several approaches have been proposed, it is widely believed that the most effective way to obtain unbiased estimates of peer effects is to conduct large-scale randomized trials of peer-to-peer communications intended to influence particular economic decisions, such as the decision to adopt a product. We therefore designed and conducted a randomized field experiment testing the effectiveness of passive-broadcast and active-personalized viral messaging capabilities in creating peer influence and social contagion among the 1.4 million friends of 9,687 experimental users of The experiment utilizes a customized commercial Facebook application to observe user behavior, ...
