In the past few years we have focused on field building initiatives centered around building the capacity of evaluators to incorporate culturally responsive evaluation (CRE) and social justice into their practice. We see this goal as paramount to create a thriving field ready to respond to the evaluation needs of a multicultural world. This past year, during our flagship event, the Social Justice & Evaluation conference, is where we promoted this work. We provided CRE 101 sessions in addition to sessions helping evaluators address isms during the evaluation process from start to finish, how to assess what the current political climate can impact evaluation and the people we serve, or how social justice can be infused into practices such as results-based accountability.. Lessons Learned:. We recently administered a survey to Wisconsin evaluators and asked them about how much they use CRE. The full results will be shared in the future, but we can share a couple points for discussion. For ...

When I was in medical school in the late 1950s, a visiting professor (a psychiatrist from Yale, I think, whose name I have forgotten) gave a talk advocating a restructuring of training that would lead to a degree of Doctor of Medical Psychology. I think that it was an idea much like yours, even then, before the current split between talk therapy and pharmacological therapy. I infer that you are advocating training that plays up the essentials and does away with the nonessentials, and I agree wholeheartedly. I have ordered your book and am eagerly awaiting it. It seems to me that some authority will have to be persuaded to license people trained in that manner. In another of your blogs, I suggested that a possibly promising route would be the military (i.e. the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences). What do you think? ...

Theory of Mind (ToM) is defined as one’s ability to understand others’ wishes, beliefs, intentions, and other psychological states and thereby to judge others’ behavior, as an essential component of social cognition. However, there have been limited studies on social cognition,
Social jet lag, a term coined by researchers in Europe, refers to the discrepancy between your natural body clock and your social clock - the schedule you need to keep for your job and other social commitments. If youre relying an alarm clock to wake up every morning during the week, but sleeping in on weekends, thats a good sign theres a mismatch. The end result is that your bodys basically shuttling back and forth between time zones each week while youre becoming increasingly sleep-deprived.. While during the workweek [people] get too little sleep and are woken by the alarm clock in the middle of their biological night, they sleep in on the weekends in order to fill up their tanks with the sleep they need, researcher Dr. Till Roenneberg of the University of Munichs Institute of Medical Psychology, in Germany, said in a video about the study..

A very well documented study of the lying factor, Lack of Evidence for Transmission of HIV Through Vaginal Intercourse, was published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, Vol 24, No. 4, November 1995. The study by Stuart Brody, Ph.d., a specialist in medical PSYCHOLOGY traces the invalid reports of heterosexual contact in detail including data on broader sexual lies told and the various psychological tests to measure the lie factor in other activities. The strong conclusion is lying by respondents (including socially desirable response bias), is one of a number of factors resulting in HIV-positive reports that fail to show the true risk factor of anal intercourse or iv drug activity. Mr. Brody says: Scientifically proving that something does not exist or occur is always very difficult and usually impossible. The primary point this paper attempts to convey is that there has been the assumption in both scientific and lay communities that vaginal HIV transmission does commonly exist, and that the ...

by Brennan Lagasse. On October 12, 2011, indigenous elders and medicine people came together on a conference call with several representatives of the federal government. The purpose of the call was to continue an ongoing dialogue centered on the protection of indigenous sacred sites that continue to be comprised under federal leadership. It was a very relevant exercise in where the modern day power culture of the federal government still stands in regards to respect for the well-being of indigenous peoples.. Although several governmental representatives took part in the call, the clear and salient message received by those not affiliated with the federal government was, firstly, that sacred site protection is not important enough for Secretary Tom Vilsack to be a part of the call-the one whom all indigenous elders and medicine people were planning on being involved. And secondly, that it is not important enough to honor the request of those who hold these places as central to their well-being ...

Getting enough sleep is vital to supporting our immune system in fighting off pathogens - so much is common knowledge. But what we dont know is how exactly sleep affects certain immune functions. Scientists at the University of Tübingen and the University of Lübeck have now discovered a new mechanism by which sleep supports the immune system. The team led by Dr. Luciana Besedovsky and Dr. Stoyan Dimitrov from the Institute of Medical Psychology and Behavioral Neurobiology in Tübingen and Dr. Tanja Lange from the Clinic for Rheumatology and Clinical Immunology in Lübeck were able to show that the function of T cells, the white blood cells that are responsible for combating pathogens, was impaired after only three hours without sleep. The study was published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine.. The scientists conducted a 24-hour experiment with volunteers: One group was allowed to sleep for eight hours at night, a second group stayed awake for the whole period. During the experiment, ...

The overarching purpose of the current article was to examine the status of sport psychology as a profession in 4 ways. First, the author characterizes the profession of sport psychology as an illusion because there is so little demand for sport psychology services and because there are so few full-time practicing sport psychologists. Second, paradoxically, it appears that many people assume that applied sport psychology is a healthy and viable profession, so the author comments on why this is the case. Sidestepping the lack of jobs does a disservice to graduate students who believe they can easily become practicing sport psychologists. Third, it is clear that few athletes or teams want to pay for sport psychology services, so some reasons why this is the case are presented. Fourth, the author speculates about the future of the sport psychology profession, followed by some recommendations that would rectify his claim that the fields relative silence on this issue does a disservice to students. ...

The plant science community is being called upon as never before to carry out research that addresses challenges in food, climate, and health, to educate a populace inundated with science misinformation, and to excite and recruit a new generation of scientists from among that populace, all while investments in basic research are stagnant or even declining in many countries. The Decadal Vision (Plant Science Research Summit, 2013) represents a response from that community, one that launches a meaningful and ongoing dialogue about how best to accomplish these goals. In that spirit, we welcome this thoughtful commentary by Cathie Martin (Martin, 2013).. We wish to remind readers that the impetus to embark on the development of a plant science decadal vision, by design from a U.S. perspective, derived from several national science and agriculture reports (Plant Science Research Summit, 2013; see A National Call to Action). Each of these reports, from the National Academies or the White House, ...
ABOVE: © ISTOCK.COM, CYNOCLUB Genetics hold far more sway over the mouse microbiome than transient environmental exposures, researchers reported July 26 in Applied and Environmental Microbiology. The results appear to contradict previous studies in humans that have found environmental factors to be more influential than genetics, and they add to an ongoing dialogue in the microbiome research community over how much control we hold over the bacterial communities in our guts. Hila Korach-Rechtman, a microbiologist at the Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, set out to identify the microbes in mice that become a fixture in the gut after being introduced through the environment.
The Popes comments come on the third day of his state visit to his homeland. He was particularly keen to highlight the life and legacy of the saints who had established the Christian Gospel in the Erfurt area. These included St. Severus from Italy in the fourth century, St. Killian from Ireland in the seventh century, St. Boniface from England in the eighth century and St. Elizabeth of Hungary in the 13th century. The Papal liturgy used texts specific to the Diocese of Erfurt for the veneration of St. Elizabeth.. Pope Benedict held each one of them up as a model of how a Christian should use prayer to fathom the will of Christ in their lives.. They, as it were, reached out to him from deep within themselves in the ongoing dialogue of prayer, and in return they received from him the light that shows where true life is to be found, said the Pope.. Each is also a reminder of the missionary nature of the Catholic faith, said the Pope, as the Church does not stop at national borders, as we can ...
