By Stephanie Liou. Greg Walton, assistant professor of psychology (Photo by Linda A. Cicero / Stanford News Service). Like a gnawing stomach or pesky runny nose, a looming stereotype can make it difficult to focus and perform well in school. Based on existing research, black students, Latinos, and women in math and science are known to perform poorly when a mistake could seem to confirm a negative stereotype about their group.. A new study by Stanford psychologists has found that negative stereotypes can also prevent minority students from learning new academic material. But alleviating concerns about stereotypes dramatically improves black students learning.. The idea that a persons work might suffer if he or she believes a poor performance will reinforce a negative stereotype about that persons group is known as stereotype threat. Studies have shown that stereotype threat is a likely cause of educational achievement gaps.. What hadnt been done was to see whether the same stereotype ...
Stereotype threat is often described as resulting from increased anxiety over confirming a negative stereotype about ones group (Steele, 1997). However, variations in the type of emotional reactions targets experience as a function of stereotype threat has never been examined systematically before and after taking a test, thus it is unclear whether targets experience different emotions at different points in the testing session. The present study investigated this issue of emotional specificity. Results demonstrate that targets of a negative stereotype, but not non-targets, experienced heightened anxiety prior to taking a test under stereotype threat conditions and heightened frustration once the test was concluded. No effects were found in the non-stereotype threat conditions. These findings, therefore, highlight the specific affective states that targets and non-targets experience in threat and non-threat conditions, as well as how these affective states can be assessed using self-report ...
Fox Sports has canceled The College Experiment… and quoted an ethnic-studies professor as saying that the segment was demeaning to millions of Asian Americans and perpetuates negative stereotypes of the minority group as foreigners.. Do you think any ethnic-studies professor would EVER complain that the media regularly demean Whites? Would the media EVER cancel a show or refuse advertising that openly portray Whites as fools, clueless and/or losers?. Would academia EVER demand that the media stop perpetuating negative stereotypes against Whites the way they did for Asians in the above article??. No. It is OK to dehumanize Whites across the media and academia.. At the University of Illinois in Chicago most of the students are Asian. You will find this all across the country, USC is not exception.. Asians are not a majority at USC:. Ethnic composition of USCs student body:. Undergraduate:. Caucasian: 47.0% Asian 21.0%. Graduate Students:. Caucasian: 31.9% Asian: 20.2%. Source: ...
The promotion of insight among people with schizophrenia spectrum disorders has posed a dilemma to service providers as higher insight has been linked to positive clinical outcomes but negative psychological outcomes. The negative meaning that people attached to the illness (self-stigma content) and the recurrence of such stigmatizing thoughts (self-stigma process) may explain why increased insight is associated with negative outcomes. The present study examined how the presence of high self-stigma content and self-stigma process may contribute to the negative association between insight and life satisfaction. A total of 181 people with schizophrenia spectrum disorders were assessed at baseline. 130 and 110 participants were retained and completed questionnaire at 6-month and 1-year follow-up, respectively. Results showed that baseline insight was associated with lower life satisfaction at 6-month when self-stigma process or self-stigma content was high. Furthermore, baseline insight was ...
Despite constituting one fifth of the population in Europe, elderly people (65+) are the least active group with respect to using the internet and computer-based services. Toward shedding light on rea-sons for this discrepancy, we adopt in this paper the theory of stereotype threat as a theoretical lens. Stereotype threat theory posits the perception of a social identity threat such as being old and cogni-tively slow, which in turn results in anxiety, low performance, and avoidance behavior when exposed to a stereotype-relevant situation. Psychological research has resulted in numerous studies that pro-vided evidence of perceived aging stereotypes and their implications on performance, anxiety, and avoidance. Within this research in progress, we transfer this knowledge to the phenomenon of infor-mation system (IS) avoidance by elderly people and propose a research model and multi-methodological experimental design in order to investigate the relationship between perceived com-puter-based stereotype
Rao also said that creating supportive communities for people living with HIV/AIDS and having visible testing centers would help reduce stigma in India.. According to Avnish Jolly -- an HIV/AIDS advocate and member of the country research team at the United Nations India office -- it will take decades to reduce the stigma that is attached to what is largely considered a sexually transmitted disease. He said that despite centuries of reform and development, traditional Indian concepts like the caste system and untouchables havent vanished from our villages. Padmavati, a Chennai-based consultant at the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation, said that attitudes toward a person living with HIV/AIDS largely are determined by cultural and social taboos -- such as education and the status of women -- and that reactions toward people living with the virus vary throughout India. She said that stigma is greater in places like Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan where women do not have a voice in the family and that ...
Most of us, despite our explicit beliefs, have implicit biases. These are assumptions we make about social groups that inform our language, explicit attitudes, and actions in subtle ways. Implicit biases can be so deeply engrained that they inform our interactions with others when we arent even consciously aware of them. What this means is that even the most egalitarian-minded among us may unwittingly act in ways (or hold beliefs) that are racist or sexist, despite their desire not to do so.. Stereotype threat happens when a persons group identity, shrouded by the dominant cultures stereotypical judgements and expectations, negatively affects her own capacity to succeed. The fear, conscious or unconscious, that she will be judged according to negative stereotypes can raise self-doubt and lead a person to effectively impair her own performance, thereby narrowing her educational and career prospects.. There is a great deal of evidence to show that implicit bias and stereotype threat contribute ...
New research by Lisa Gunter provides insights on how shelters might increase Pit Bull adoptions. Her abstract is below; click here to view the poster.. Previous research has indicated that dog breed stereotypes exist and that the appearance of a human handler alongside a dog can affect perceptions of the dogs temperament. The present study looked at participants perceptions of a Pit Bull-type dog in comparison to a Labrador Retriever and Border Collie, and whether the addition of a rough adult male, elderly woman or male child influences the dogs perceived characteristics of approachability, aggressiveness, intelligence, friendliness, trainability or adoptability.The results indicated that participants viewed the Pit Bull least favorably in all six characteristics when evaluated with the other breeds, confirming the presence of a negative stereotype.. The appearance of a handler alongside the Pit Bull influenced participants impressions of the dog on characteristics of aggressiveness, ...
An implicit stereotype is the unconscious attribution of particular qualities to a member of a certain social group. Implicit stereotypes are influenced by experience, and are based on learned associations between various qualities and social categories, including race or gender. Individuals perceptions and behaviors can be affected by implicit stereotypes, even without the individuals intention or awareness. Implicit stereotypes are an aspect of implicit social cognition, the phenomenon that perceptions, attitudes, and stereotypes operate without conscious intention. The existence of implicit stereotypes is supported by a variety of scientific articles in psychological literature. Implicit stereotype were first defined by psychologists Anthony Greenwald and Mahzarin Banaji in 1995. Explicit stereotypes are the result of intentional, conscious, and controllable thoughts and beliefs. Explicit stereotypes usually are directed toward a group of people based on what is being perceived. An explicit ...
The authors aimed to establish whether interventions designed to reduce intergroup bias could be applied to the stereotype threat domain. In three experiments, the hypothesis was tested that blurring intergroup boundaries would reduce stereotype threat. In the first study, it was found that female participants who thought about characteristics shared between the genders tended to show less preference for stereotypical female careers than did participants in the baseline condition. In. Experiment 2, participants who thought. about overlapping characteristics answered more math questions correctly compared to a baseline group and Participants who thought, about differences between the genders. In experiment 3, a. specific threat manipulation was included. Participants who completed the overlapping characteristics task before receiving the threat completed significantly more math questions correctly than did participants in the baseline and threat conditions. The findings support the idea that ...

Non-disabled people should listen to the wishes of disabled people, rather than trying to gain experience of disability Ive only just caught up with the Community Care article on Bupa care home staff who were trained to become more aware of their clients requirements using simulation exercises such as being blindfolded and using a wheelchair.. While these kind of exercises do provide limited benefits in terms of understanding access, they are based on the medical model and reinforce negative stereotypes and myths. Anyone who is put in a situation for the first time will lack the experience, skill and expertise necessary to cope with it. That applies to everything from blindness to windsurfing. It is therefore dangerous and arrogant to allow people to assume they can understand blindness after wearing a blindfold for 30 minutes, when we would not assume someone would be a good windsurfer after half an hour trying it. For disabled people, their impairment is often not the main cause of concern. ...
Until recently, in our society, we seemed to equate getting older and retiring as slowing down. We expected that as a person would age, they would slow down, sleep more, go into retirement and just fade into the background.. That is not the reality today. Seniors are living longer, are in better health, and seem to be able to conquer more things in their lives, than the seniors of yester year.. According to Health Canada, older Canadians are healthier, more affluent, are living longer and more independent lives than ever before. Seniors are physically more active, are engaged with their families and in their communities and are becoming international globetrotters. They are challenging many of the negative stereotypes we hold about aging and showing us that life is for living with vigour and vitality (Depression in Elderly, Mood Disorders Society of Canada).. There is a tendency in our culture, though, to see depression in seniors as a normal part of aging. We figure that seniors have a right ...
This new research was published in the Eating & Weight Disorders journal. It shows that, although usually well-meant - the parents comments regarding their childs weight often become precursors to harmful dieting behavior, overindulging as well as other potential eating disorders. It can unintentionally build upon negative stereotypes regarding the weight that kids attribute to themselves.. Especially when it comes to girls, what a mother or father says about her weight could have health consequences for her for years following. It can contribute to a girls chronic dislike of her own physical appearance… even when shes not at all overweight.. Parents with children who are diagnosed with obesity may be concerned, but it is the matter in which those concerns are addressed that could have a detrimental long-term impact, says Rebecca Puhl, deputy director at the University of Connecticut of the Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity.. The effect it has on girls might be especially ...
Im a little fed up with the generalization that white women know how to exploit their image to their advantage and Black women dont. SOME White women know how to do this and the others ride on the coat tails of those that do. What I mean is white women are generally seen as the fairer sex, worthy of being supported and rescued. This view has been reinforced in literature, T.V. and film. Consequently, all white women are assumed to be so until they prove you otherwise. Black women have a different discourse going on. And I dont need to spell it out here. As someone else alluded to the collective image does indeed affect the individual. This is why Black women have to work harder to shake off those negative stereotypes and learn a new way. We did need to start with highlighting the issues as Halima and other BWE bloggers have done but I do hope we move on from tut tutting by setting the example and pointing the new way. It is a war we are in because unfortunately society has coarsened across ...

They had pulled Boondocks in 2004 and their ombudsman at the time Michael Getler noted, One year after refusing to publish a weeks worth of the Boondocks comic strip drawn by Aaron McGruder, The Post did it again last week, only this time it didnt tell readers. The Post says that comics are edited just like any other feature of the paper and denies that this is censorship. Editors say last weeks offering was racially offensive and used negative stereotypes of African Americans to lampoon TV reality shows. Last year The Post was the only paper, among 250 that buy Boondocks, to drop it. This time seven other papers dropped it, including the Boston Globe. I disagreed last time, and this time, too. I think McGruder, who is African American, is a brilliant artist who has created young, black characters speaking with razor-sharp, satirical candor who say things that make us uncomfortable but also make us think. In January of 2004, Mike Peters of the Dallas Morning News noted that the Post ...
At the end of the day, this is the most important question to answer. While there is consensus among administrators about the risks of illicit drug use, there is a lack of consensus about what to do when it comes to effective prevention. In many cases, this ambivalence has led either to inaction or reaction to a specific issue such as availability of Naloxone. Much of the uncertainty around creating effective programs and policies aimed at drug abuse has to do with a lack of understanding about what exactly we are trying to prevent. Add to that the negative stereotypes associated with illicit drug use and abuse and schools are challenged to come up with effective solutions that arent limited in scope and impact. Upon considering these questions, some schools may decide that use of Naloxone is an important part of their universitys efforts to combat drug abuse. But if we really want to lessen the impact of overdose, campus administrators must work collaboratively to identify the most effective ...
Ive always liked my anonymity here. I have another blog which is less anonymous where I wear my race and faith on my sleeve. Im used to the burden of the minority which is when you are part of a minority your actions can often be taken to represent the beliefs and views of all of your particular minority. I handle this well for the most part. I strive to break the negative stereotypes but when I began a blog about IF and loss I wanted to not have to go into that part of myself. I wanted a place where no one would see my name or the color of my skin and begin to make assumptions. I could write about family politics, or anger or sadness without worrying that anyone would accidentally make a sweeping generalization of my faith or race as a whole. I liked that. I kind of didnt mind keeping it that way. And then came Faisal Shahzad. The seemingly nice and normal assimilated Muslim-American who decided to try and plant a bomb in Times Square. Stupid. Idiotic. Deplorable. And then I read Zeitoun. ...

The governor was trying to end the press conference, having said hed take one last question several questions ago. But then the topic of mental illness came up and Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said he was glad for the chance to make a final point.. This is a very important point, he said. Having mental health services and getting to the point where a stigma that might otherwise attach to accessing those services dissipates is a very important process for our country to engage in.. All too often, we think of treatment for mental illnesses very differently than we think about a broken arm or a broken leg, or, for that matter, a chronic illness.. Malloy was taking questions after announcing the creation of a commission to craft a response to the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The panel is expected to address school safety, gun violence and mental health issues.. Malloy has not offered specific ideas about mental health changes hed like to see. But hes spoken repeatedly about the need ...
When reading Whistling Vivaldi to learn more about stereotype threat, one thing that really struck me was something discussed towards the end of the book: the idea that fear of being seen as racist (or sexist) might lead people to disengage. In the book, this was discussed in terms of things like where people choose…

When I was in college, there was a t-shirt that was very popular. It pictured a woman who was overweight, had big red lips, big hair and was waving a credit card. There was a big red circle with a line through it (the universal symbol for no). Underneath this lovely graphic was the tag line: slap-a-JAP.. It has been a while since I have had to think about that particular t-shirt advocating random violence against Jewish women. Or the one that advised going further than just a slap. It rather pains me that this stereotype is one that is apparently being revived - even as comedy. Sure there are women who are Jewish, and vapid, who love money. There are also Jewish men who fit that stereotype, but somehow they seem to miss being mocked as a group and tarred with that excellent tag of JAP. For that matter, I believe I have encountered non-Jews who fit that stereotype as well.. When Maya Escobar uses this stereotype she may be either mocking it or indulging it - or both - thats one of the ...

Our culture, not our biology, dictates which illnesses are stigmatized and which are not, which are considered disabilities and which are not, and which are deemed contestable (meaning some medical professionals may find the existence of this ailment questionable) as opposed to definitive (illnesses that are unquestionably recognized in the medical profession) (Conrad and Barker 2010). For instance, sociologist Erving Goffman (1963) described how social stigmas hinder individuals from fully integrating into society. The stigmatization of illness often has the greatest effect on the patient and the kind of care he or she receives. Many contend that our society and even our health care institutions discriminate against certain diseases-like mental disorders, AIDS, venereal diseases, and skin disorders (Sartorius 2007). Facilities for these diseases may be sub-par; they may be segregated from other health care areas or relegated to a poorer environment. The stigma may keep people from seeking help ...
CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): A general theory of domain identification is used to describe achievement barriers still faced by women in advanced quantitative areas and by African Americans in school. The theory assumes that sustained school success requires identification with school and its subdomains; that societal pressures on these groups (e.g., economic disadvantage, gender roles) can frustrate this identification; and that in school domains where these groups are negatively stereotyped, those who have become domain identified face the further barrier of stereotype threat, the threat that others judgments or their own actions will negatively stereotype them in the domain. Research shows that this threat dramatically depresses the standardized test performance of women and African Americans who are in the academic vanguard of their groups

Theres a phenomenon known as stereotype threat, in which people, when reminded of their status as members of traditionally underperforming groups, perform worse on exams. They dont even have to believe that any stereotypes about their groups are true; they still perform worse than they would have if they hadnt been reminded. The more the differences are played up, the worse the members of the threatened group perform. It even works on white males, if theyre told just before taking a math test that Asians perform better on the test. Stereotype threat accounts for at least some of the underperformance that we see in the scores of certain groups on standardized tests, such as the SAT. But it does not account for all ...
The researchers point to some limitations in the study. They could not establish causality between internalized HIV stigma and negative outcomes - only a strong association between them. Also, the study did not directly measure social inequality, social support, self-efficacy and other similar covariates that may be related to HIV stigma. The study may also have missed people who do not access care or HIV services at all, given that study participants were recruited from community organizations providing outreach and social services to people living with HIV and from HIV clinical care sites. Finally, non-English speakers such as Latinos and Asian Americans were underrepresented in the sample ...
Stereotypes can boost as well as hinder our chances of success, according to psychologists from the University of Exeter and St. Andrews University.

Recently researchers have debated the relevance of stereotype threat to the workplace. Critics have argued that stereotype threat is not relevant in high stakes testing such as in personnel selection. We and others argue that stereotype threat is highly relevant in personnel selection, but our review focused on underexplored areas including effects of stereotype threat beyond test performance and the application of brief, low-cost interventions in the workplace. Relevant to the workplace, stereotype threat can reduce domain identification, job engagement, career aspirations, and receptivity to feedback. Stereotype threat has consequences in other relevant domains including leadership, entrepreneurship, negotiations, and competitiveness. Several institutional and individual level intervention strategies that have been field-tested and are easy to implement show promise for practitioners including: addressing environmental cues, valuing diversity, wise feedback, organizational mindsets, reattribution
The overall purpose of this dissertation is to examine cognitive and social mediators of psychological distress in Korean childhood cancer survivors. The four specific research aims are (1) to examine the overall prevalence of psychological distress and to compare the profile of cancer survivors with and without significant levels of psychological distress, (2) to examine perceived physical functioning and perceived public stigma as potential risk factors for psychological distress, taking into account possible sociodemographic and cancer-related correlates, (3) to test a model of the effects of perceived physical functioning and perceived public stigma on psychological distress as mediated through three cognitive and social factors, and (4) to examine gender differences within the mediated effects of perceived physical functioning and perceived public stigma on psychological distress. ❧ Participants consisted of 223 cancer survivors diagnosed before the age of 19 years and currently residing ...
The relationships between stigma and quality of life in schizophrenia (QoL) have been extensively explored but have mostly focused on self-stigma and self-esteem and have never been explored in Latin-America. The objective of this study was to determine which stigma dimensions were associated with QoL in a sample of community-dwelling SZ subjects of three Latin-American countries. Stabilized outpatients with SZ were recruited in three Mental Health Services in three Latin-American countries: Bolivia (N = 83), Chile (N = 85) and Peru (N = 85). Stigma and Qol-SZ were evaluated by self-administered questionnaires, the Internalized Stigma of Mental Illness scale (ISMI-12) and the SQoL-18. 253 participants were included. In multivariate analyses, QoL has been associated with each stigma dimension (social stigma, stigma experience and self-stigma), independently of age, gender, education level, ethnicity, age at illness onset, illness symptomatology and mental health treatment. More specifically, social
Stereotype Threat is THE fundamental reason why there are so few female math geniuses. I look at my own life as a woman and see the havoc that negative stereotypes about my gender has wrecked on my life and the lives of my female friends. For example, in college I studied anthropology because I believed that you need to have innate abilities in math to do well in math-related subjects. I struggled in math, engineering, and physical science courses and promptly decided that I was too stupid to do major in mathematics. After college I found myself hired for job as a web developer. Years after that I decided that software engineering was interesting and enrolled in a C++ course at local university. After finishing the course easily with an A grade I considered the possibility that I might be good at programming and decided to take some undergraduate computer science courses. Well, one thing led to another and I ended up being accepted to a masters in computer science program at a top 20 ...
Just as negative stereotypes about ones social group can impede targets performance, positive stereotypes can enhance it. This positive effect is called Stereotype boost (Cheryan & Bodenhausen, 2000; Levy, 2001; Shih, Pittinsky, & Ambady, 1999). When, for instance, a positive self-relevant stereotype is made salient, targets tend to perform better than non-primed targets (Shih, et al, 1999). For instance, Shih and colleagues (1999) demonstrated that Asian American women performed better on a math test compared to a control group when their Asian ethnic identity was subtly made salient (positively stereotyped) but worse when their gender was subtly made salient (negatively stereotyped). Work by Dijksterhuis and van Knippenberg (1998) provided evidence that direct priming also activates self-relevant stereotypes which in turn have a direct impact on behavior. Priming college professor in college students led to better performance on trivia questions (relative to a control group). This effect is ...
Stigma, a set of negative stereotypes tied to behavioral health conditions, is not a new problem. Results of a recent survey suggest that views may be changing when it comes to mental illness. Advocacy efforts are getting results, and the public is beginning to recognize that mental illness is, in fact, a health condition. We need a similar evolution to start when it comes to substance use disorders. Public perception of what it means to be addicted hasnt shifted significantly. This is a problem. In a study of Americans conducted by Johns Hopkins University, only 22% of people surveyed were willing to work closely with someone suffering from drug addiction, yet 62% were willing to work closely with someone suffering from mental illness. Every person struggling to manage a substance use disorder, and every family stigmatized while supporting a loved one, are part of this broader landscape. Our current culture of stigma creates resistance to funding prevention and treatment. Belief that persons ...
Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) affects a significant portion of the US population, but there remains limited information on public responses to affected individuals. Diagnosed mental illnesses can lead to negative stereotyping by the public, who can then socially exclude or otherwise discriminate. This paper presents results of an experiment (N = 830) that assessed the extent to which workers with PTSD labels-either resulting from an auto accident or wartime military service-evoked negative stereotypes in a workplace scenario and social distance from study participants. ...
Anti-Hindu sentiment is a negative perception or any sentiment against the practice and practitioners of Hinduism, stemming from religious intolerance. Individuals in the Indian diaspora have begun to protest that Western scholars distort their religion and perpetuate negative stereotypes, which began with Macaulayism in India. Historically, such stereotypes were promulgated during the British Raj by several Indophobes in South Asia as a means to aggrandize sectarian divisions in Indian society, part of the divide and rule strategy employed by the British. Such allegations have seen a rise with the Hindu right using them for politics. The Indian Caste System, a social stratification system in South Asia which has been criticized for its discriminatory problems, is often seen as a uniquely Hindu issue rather than a cultural one. This is a common stereotype, as adherents of other religions such as Islam, Sikhism and Christianity have kept the practice of caste segregation in India (for ...
The Lord has been exposing in me a fear of being seen as ignorant, out of touch, uneducated, backward, and the like. An underlying motivation in my presentation of Christ has been to show that Christianity is none of the negative stereotypes imposed on it. More importantly, I want to make sure people dont think I fit those stereotypes. At bottom, my defense of Christianity is merely self-love. And really, we talk in this day and age as if stereotypes are always completely false when in reality there is often truth to them. While bridge building is a legitimate calling within the church, so is being misunderstood, maligned, and rejected. Many in the church are perplexed by the worlds reaction to us and assume something must be wrong with the church or our presentation of the gospel. Many of us are busy polling our neighbors, finding out what offends or confuses, and trying to find the holy grail of cultural relevance that will end all dissonance with non-Christians. Others make it their ...
I stuck out among the students who came from predominately privileged backgrounds, said Abeyta, an assistant professor of psychology who started teaching at Rutgers University-Camden this fall.. I found myself confronting issues of race and stereotypes. Like many first-generation college students and students of color, I felt like an imposter, unsure about my ability to succeed in college. This was made worse by those who questioned whether I had earned my spot or was here because of affirmative action. Then he took his first course in social psychology - a discipline that uses scientific methods to understand individual behavior in a social context - which allowed him to view his situation through a less personal lens.. Once you start thinking about how people act, think and feel in the context of society, you can be more dispassionate about the world, said Abeyta, whose survey-based senior thesis looked at the effect of negative stereotypes on low-income parents and parenting ...

Language is a very powerful tool. It can be used not only to communicate ideas, but also to change and shape attitudes. People with all types of disabilities are striving for equality, community accessibility, and acceptance. Yet, they are constantly confronted by language which perpetuates negative stereotypes of who they are and what they are capable of doing.. Using positive language that values and affirms people with disabilities is a first step in helping to change societal attitudes. When a term such as victim or invalid is used to describe a person who uses a wheelchair, the listener or reader immediately views the person as an object, not as a human being. The image that comes to mind is a negative one, focused not on the person, but on the disability. These terms do not allow or encourage the reader or listener to see any of the unique aspects of the individual.. When a person sustains a spinal cord injury and is paralyzed, he/she loses the ability to fully use his/her legs and/or ...
For others, this was their first experience with the gas chamber. Abby Burgdorf, Belleville, IL, Wheaton College noted, we have a couple people enlisted who have done this prior so they had said how awful it was. I was kind of prepared that it was going to be bad but I didnt expect how painful the burning sensation was.. My advice would be: talk to people who have done the training before. Just mentally prepare yourself. You know its going to be uncomfortable Its going to hurt but its a good bonding experience. I think its important to know the different aspects of branches in the Army. The Chemical Corps gets a negative stereotype so going in and seeing what they do, you recognize they have a very important part in mission success.. After completing the training, Cadets learn to decontaminate themselves and react to various tasks helping them further their plight in becoming Army Officers and leaders of the next generation. ...

Even though there had been improvements in Sri Lanka, a number of defects remained, another expert said. Special temporary measures were meant to eliminate and accelerate equality. The roots of inequality remained deeply entrenched in negative stereotypes. The Government seemed to be relying on a natural evolution of things. In practice, such a simple, linear evolution did not exist. If improvements in education were enough to improve the situation in the labour market and in politics, the situation would have been better already. Change would happen, of course, but there was a need to make it happen sooner and quicker as a matter of justice and human rights for women, on the one hand, and good governance for the country on the other. Special temporary measures must be seen in that light. They were not just quotas in political life but were legal and policy measures, targets and specific training activities. Sri Lanka must consider special temporary measures in many areas. ...
Ramazan and Eid ul-Fitr provide excellent opportunities for everyone who is deployed - military and civilian, government or contractor - to make positive contributions that will help keep ISAF Soldiers, Civilians, and Afghan Allies safe and our missions successful. Those working outside the wire can benefit the most from this report, but anyone who encounters Afghans, from village engagements to DFAC workers, can make significant contributions, even if they never leave the base.. Each day, everyone who is deployed has the opportunity to reinforce positive or negative stereotypes about ISAF forces and Western civilians. These encounters are important, regardless of whether the interaction is with GIRoA or ANSF officials, prominent elders, unemployed sharecroppers, or a young man who is tasked with working in the DFAC or cleaning our toilets. All of the Afghans we encounter have the potential to become supporters or detractors, allies or foes. The experiences Afghans have - good and bad - in ...
A local radiology resident was given the highly coveted Resident of the Month award earlier this week after a medicine attending wrote him one of the most positive nominations we have ever seen. Dr. Ryan Sterling was very honored to receive the ward, claiming it will take away a lot of the negative stereotype surrounding radiology.. Everyone thinks radiologists sit in the dark and look at the computer all day, said Sterling. And they are absolutely right. However, we sometimes know some other stuff too. Sterling says he received a call from Dr. Harrison Harrisons, an internist at his hospital who was requesting help with a patients scan. It was then that he was able to show off his knowledge. I said hey, do you think you could give me a quick wet read on this patient?, and he immediately responded by asking for the vital signs. Specifically blood pressure. I couldnt believe it! Harrisons told White Coat Weekly. Sometimes the radiology attendings reach that level, but Ive never seen ...
I too eschew reality-TV (OK--I do confess to watching Dancing With the Stars when Hines Ward was a contestant) This show, (Married to Medicine) sounds as though it perpetuates multiple negative stereotypes including that women marry doctors, more often than they become doctors themselves. Granted, this was once true, but a better, more relevant, motivational reality show might focus on statistics that indicate 48% of grads from US medical schools (in 2011) were female! What a change from the 1960-70 era...And young women, from all ethnic groups, need to see, and know that these role-models exist. Instead of building up, reality TV seems to perpetuate the dumbing-down of our society ...

Background. Anti-stigma programmes should aim to increase disclosure to those who can support someone with a mental health problem and appropriate professional help-seeking.. Aims. We investigated associations among public awareness of Englands Time to Change anti-stigma campaign and: (a) comfort envisaged in disclosing a mental health problem to family and friends; (b) comfort in disclosing to an employer; and (c) intended professional help-seeking from a general practitioner, i.e. a physician working in primary care.. Method. Using data from a survey of a nationally representative sample of adults, we created separate logistic regression models to test for campaign awareness and other variables as predictors of comfort in disclosure and intended help-seeking.. Results. We found positive relationships between campaign awareness and comfort in disclosing to family and friends (odds ratio (OR) = 1.27, 95% CI 1.14-1.43) and to a current or prospective employer (OR = 1.20, 95% CI 1.06-1.35); and ...
The RDC has been successful in advocating for better roads, schools, and other social amenities and budgetary activities and I am certain that those same energies could be used to influence the eradication of the stigma attached the HIV/AIDS..... if this is not done, very soon, rather than discussing other issues of regional development at statutory meetings, they will have a crisis on their hand and have to discuss the high toll of deaths in the region relating to HIV/AIDS ...

Movies were, and still are, a powerful medium for the transmission of stereotypes. Early silent movies such as The Wooing and Wedding of a Coon in 1904, The Slave in 1905, The Sambo Series 1909-1911 and The Nigger in 1915 offered existing stereotypes through a fascinating new medium (Boskin, 1986). The premiere of Birth of a Nation during the reconstruction period in 1915 marked the change in emphasis from the happy Sambo and the pretentious and inept Jim Crow stereotypes to that of the Savage. In this D.W. Griffith film, the Ku Klux Klan tames the terrifying, savage African-American through lynching. Following emancipation, the image of the threatening brute from the Dark Continent was revitalized. Acts of racial violence were justified and encouraged through the emphasis on this stereotype of the Savage. The urgent message to whites was, we must put blacks in their place or else (Boskin, 1986). Old themes about African-Americans began to well up in the face of the perceived threat. ...
The Stigmatization in Worplace of People with Addictive Disorders. Stigmatization related with Drugs, Alcohol and Addictive Behaviours in the Workplace.
The present study examined the influences of gender-role stereotypes, gender-role congruity, and the sex-typing of the professor job on performance evaluations of university educators in actual classroom settings. Participants used the Schein Descriptive Index (Schein, 1973) to define gender-role stereotypes, characteristics of their professor/instructor, and the characteristics of an Effective Professor. Participants used a behavior summary scale (BSS) formatted student assessment of instruction to evaluate their professors/instructors performance after a full semester of class participation. It was hypothesized that a pro-male bias would exist in the sex-typing of the professor job, and that combined with the gender-role stereotypes of participants and the gender-role congruity of professors/instructors, would influence performance evaluations. In support of hypothesized relationships, results demonstrated that male and female participants hold different gender-role stereotypes of Men and Women,
Severna Park, MD (PRWEB) September 06, 2012 -- The Binge Eating Disorder Association (BEDA) announced today that its second annual Weight Stigma Awareness Week
Results: The final scale has 31 items and four factors: informal social networks, socio-institutional, health professionals and self-stigma. Cronbachs alpha was 0.84 for the Factor 1; 0.81 for Factor 2; 0.74 for Factor 3, and 0.75 for Factor 4. Correlation matrix among factors revealed that most were in the moderate range [0.31-0.49], with the strongest occurring between perception of stigma in the informal network and self-stigma and there was also a weaker correlation between stigma from health professionals and self-stigma. Test-retest reliability was highest for informal networks [ICC 0.76 [0.67 -0.83]] and self-stigma [ICC 0.74 [0.64-0.81]]. There were no significant differences in the scoring due to sex or age. Service users in Argentina had the highest scores in almost all dimensions ...
I am posting two items back to back. This item here on PZ Myers, and nother posting on Bill Donahue.. PZ Myers. Contributions to a stereotype are not tax deductable.. I do not know why this particular quote, from a popular television series several decades ago called Barney_Miller, has stuck with me all of these years. The episode in question involved one in which the precinct arrested a black man for assault. The person he was accused of assaulting was a voodoo priestess that he believed had cursed him.. The quote above was uttered by Detective Harris (played by Ron Glass), who was also black.. It applies today to the stereotype that atheists lack any connection to morality or, in the absence of a belief in God, are capable of committing horrendous deeds that a person with a belief in God would not commit. These claims are used to promote an attitude of fear and hostility towards atheists.. The question of contributing to a stereotype in this case means acting in a way that contributes to ...

Illness is something that is an inevitable part of our lives. It is rare that you could find an individual that has not been affected by illness, either directly with their own diagnoses or indirectly with the illness of a loved one. Having any sort of illness causes immense strain on an individual as well as their family unit; but what happens when a person is suffering from an illness in silence and shame? Mental illness affects 1 out of every 5 individuals in Canada and does not discriminate according to age, education level, or occupation. The issue that I want to discuss however is not mental illness it is the stigma associated with it that causes added stereotypes and shame for the people who are suffering. In the dictionary stigma is defined as a mark of disgrace or infamy; a stain or reproach as on ones reputation. Ultimately stigma is made up of two parts: negative and unfavourable attitudes and negative behaviours that result from those attitudes. People with mental illness often ...
AIMS: To identify and categorise core components of effective stigma reduction interventions in the field of mental health in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) and compare these components across cultural contexts and between intervention characteristics. METHODS: Seven databases were searched with a strategy including four categories of terms (stigma, mental health, intervention and low- and middle-income countries). Additional methods included citation chaining of all papers identified for inclusion, consultation with experts and hand searching reference lists from other related reviews. Studies on interventions in LMICs aiming to reduce stigma related to mental health with a stigma-related outcome measure were included. All relevant intervention characteristics and components were extracted and a quality assessment was undertaken. A best fit framework synthesis was used to organise data, followed by a narrative synthesis. RESULTS: Fifty-six studies were included in this ...
The stigmatization of the tar sands industry is also growing outside the United States. In Germany, as previously reported on Planetsave, the largest science institution in the nation - one of the worlds most prestigious research institutions - last week severed its ties with a major Alberta Tar Sands research project, citing fears to our environmental reputation. In England, a growing protest movement is demanding that the UK reject proposals to import tar sands oil from Canada. Even in Israel, fossil-fuel protesters turned out to greet President Obama during his visit last week with demands that he reject the Keystone Pipeline. ...

HIV and AIDS have spread rapidly since the first case was diagnosed in 1986. HIV and AIDS pandemic the world over is still incurable despite efforts by the local and international community partnerships. Worsening the case still, is epidemic of stigmatisation and discrimination of people living with HIV and AIDS from the general public most especially healthcare providers who render services to people living with HIV and AIDS (PLWHA). Factors reinforcing these behaviours among the healthcare providers have not been adequately investigated. Such cruel behaviours towards persons living with the virus has myriad of negative impacts on their psyche and adjustment pattern and ultimately their health-related quality of life. The study therefore seeks to investigate the pattern and the extent of discrimination and stigmatisation among healthcare providers; experiences of stigma and discrimination by persons living with HIV and AIDS from healthcare providers as well as the socio-cultural factors ...
The objective of the project is a test-of-concept of an intervention to reduce the effects of the perception of discrimination on the care of patients with chronic illness. Perception of discrimination manifests itself as stereotype threat. We hypothesize that stereotype threat impairs communication between minority patients and their physicians because of increased stress and diminished trust, resulting in interactions that are less successful at enhancing patient self-efficacy, in turn resulting in lower rates of adherence with anti-hypertensive medication.. The intervention is a self-affirmation exercise performed prior to a patient-physician visit. A similar intervention has been shown to reduce the racial gap in academic performance in middle school classrooms.. We will explore the mechanistic effects of the intervention by analysis of audiotapes of patient-provider visits following the intervention. We will measure the effect of the intervention on minority hypertensive patients adherence ...

A stereotype is a generalization about a person or group of persons. We develop stereotypes when we are unable or unwilling to obtain all of the information we would need to make fair judgments about people or situations. In the absence of the total picture, stereotypes in many cases allow us to fill in the blanks. Our society often innocently creates and perpetuates stereotypes, but these stereotypes often lead to unfair discrimination and persecution when the stereotype is unfavorable. ...
