Black women are disproportionately affected by HIV. Understanding how sociocultural factors and beliefs contribute to Black women's risky sexual behavior is critical in understanding this health disparity. This study investigated the mediating influence of silencing the self (i.e., putting the needs and wants of a romantic partner before one's own needs) on the relationship between risky sexual behaviors and self-esteem, gender role beliefs, and gender ratio imbalance beliefs and behaviors (GRIBBs) in Black female college students. Participants included 99 female undergraduate students enrolled at a regional Mid-South University. Results demonstrated that risky sexual behavior was not significantly associated wtih the hypothesized variables. Higher scores on silencing the self was significantly associated with lower self-esteem (b = -1.42, p .001) and higher GRIBBS (b = .82, p .001). The results suggest that silencing the self can still adversely impact Black women, despite its non-significant relationship with risky sex. .

Women are particularly vulnerable to depression. Understanding Depression provides an in-depth critical examination of mainstream approaches to understanding and treating depression from a feminist perspective. Janet Stoppard argues that current approaches give only partial accounts of womens' experiences of depression and concludes that a better understanding will only be achieved when womens' experiences and lived realities are considered in relation to the material and social conditions in which their everyday lives are embedded. The impact of this change in approach for modes of treatment are discussed and solutions are suggested. Understanding Depression offers new insights into the problem and its treatment. It will prove useful to those with an interest in depression and gender as well as mental health practitioners.

Christopher Shultis observes an intriguing contrast between John Cage's affinity for Thoreau and fellow composer Charles Ives' connection with Emerson. Although both Thoreau and Emerson have been called transcendentalists, they held different views about the relationship between nature and humanity and the artistÍs role in creativity. Shultis explores the artist's "sounded" or "silenced" selves-the self that takes control of the creative experience versus the one that seeks to coexist with it-and shows how understanding this distinction allows a better understanding of Cage. Having placed Cage in this experimental tradition of music, poetry, and literature, Shultis offers provocative interpretations of Cage's aesthetic views, especially as they concern the issue of non-intention, and addresses some of his most path-breaking music as well as several experimentally innovative written works.

It is well known that depression occurs more often in women than in men. It is the most commonly encountered mental health problem among women and ranks overall as one of the most important women's health problems. Researchers have studied depression a great deal, yet women's depression has rarely been the primary focus. The contexts of women's lives which might contribute to their depression are not often addressed by the mental health establishment, which tends to focus on biological factors. Situating Sadness sheds light on the influence of sociocultural factors, such as economic distress, child-bearing or child-care difficulties, or feelings of powerlessness which may play a significant role, and points to the importance of context for understanding women’s depression. Situating Sadness draws on research in the United States and other parts of the world to look at depression through the eyes of women, exploring what being depressed is like in diverse social and cultural circumstances. It demonstrates that understanding depression requires close attention to the social context in which women become depressed.

Women who work in residential university housing have a unique opportunity to mentor individuals new to the on-campus community, but at what cost to themselves? This study investigated the relations between the gendered personality constructs of self-silencing, agency, communion, and their unmitigated counterparts, and well-being in a sample of Canadian female Residence Assistants. Results confirmed that agency and communion were significant predictors of positive affect, whereas self-silencing and unmitigated agency were best able to predict low levels of life satisfaction and negative affect. Results of this study are examined in relation to the unique demands of the Residence Assistant job role and implications for student affairs and women's leadership.

Covering leadership in the arts and humanities, this volume integrates critical theory with authentic leadership development, exploring the notion that leadership is both a discursive practice and a performative identity. Each year the International Leadership Association publishes a book that captures the best contemporary thinking about leadership from a diverse range of scholars, practitioners, and educators working in the field of leadership studies. In keeping with the mission of the ILA, the International Leadership Series Building Leadership Bridges connects ways of researching, imagining, and experiencing leadership across cultures, over time, and around the world. Praise for The Embodiment of Leadership "Read this book to experience an artistic and more robust sense of leadership; to rise to the challenge to gain alignment in mind, body, and spirit; and to heed the call to heal the shadows we as leaders sometimes cast over our collective humanity. Read this book to become more whole." —Shann Ray Ferch, professor of leadership studies, Gonzaga University "For once leadership expertsconsider the mind-body problem from the perspective of the latter—the body. Those with an interest inhow the body is brought to bear on the exercise ofleadership would do wellto exploreThe Embodiment of Leadership." —Barbara Kellerman, James MacGregor Burns Lecturer in Public Leadership, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University "The Embodiment of Leadership goes beyond the banal by using our body experiences as the point of departure in deciphering the leadership conundrum. Anyone interested in the study of leadership would do well to pay attention to this book." —Manfred F. R. Kets de Vries, Distinguished Clinical Professor of Leadership and Organiza-tional Change, The Raoul de Vitry d'Avaucourt Chaired Professor of Leadership Development, INSEAD "Leadership is a social construction. The Embodiment of Leadership presents a multifaceted approach to understanding how we, as a society, define, create, and contend with leaders and leadership. Serious scholars and students of leadership need to read this." —Ronald E. Riggio, Kravis Leadership Institute, Claremont McKenna College

On November 4, 2008 the American people elected a virtually unknown, untried, and inexperienced but charismatic community organizer from the streets of Chicago as President of the United States. His campaign had promised little more than "Hope," "Change," and "Yes We Can," with an occasional vague reference to "transformative" change. The new President, exalting himself and his associates as "the ones we have been waiting for," lost no time in imposing an enormous expansion of layered bureaucratic power through regulation, takeovers, intimidation, and ruinous debt to replace the institutions of American Liberty. Barack Hussein Obama tells us that America is no longer an exceptional nation; no longer a Christian nation; and acts as though it were no longer a constitutional nation. The result is a genuine coup d'etat; and the meaning of "transformative" change becomes all too clear. Call it sociofascism. The ground for this shocking "change" was prepared when the campus riots of the 1960s opened a culture war against America. Over the decades this became a full-fledged Civil War to capture or destroy American institutions of Liberty, and is now merged with the Obama regime. But in their jackboot haste to effect their purpose the new commanders stepped on a sleeping giant, and aroused its fury. "We the people" saw "transformative" change exposed for what it is. The Tea Parties were born, and a broad citizen-based counter-attack against those who would destroy America began barely a month after the new regime took office. Liberal Betrayal of America and the Tea Party Firestorm is the story of how this has happened, and what the future prospects for America may be.

In 1896, a Norwegian immigrant and mother of eight children named Helga Estby was behind on taxes and the mortgage when she learned that a mysterious sponsor would pay $10,000 to a woman who walked across America. Hoping to win the wager and save her family’s farm, Helga and her teenaged daughter Clara, armed with little more than a compass, red-pepper spray, a revolver, and Clara’s curling iron, set out on foot from Eastern Washington. Their route would pass through 14 states, but they were not allowed to carry more than five dollars each. As they visited Indian reservations, Western boomtowns, remote ranches and local civic leaders, they confronted snowstorms, hunger, thieves and mountain lions with equal aplomb. Their treacherous and inspirational journey to New York challenged contemporary notions of femininity and captured the public imagination. But their trip had such devastating consequences that the Estby women's achievement was blanketed in silence until, nearly a century later, Linda Lawrence Hunt encountered their extraordinary story.

"As expected, this book is complex but it is also engaging, thought-provoking, and exciting because it helps nurses and other readers think deeply about meeting the needs of patients at their most vulnerable moments. Score: 94, 4 Stars--Doody's Medical Reviews Callista Roy, one of nursingís leading theorists and creator of the widely used Roy Adaptation Model of Nursing, presents a unique pathway for developing knowledge for nursing practice. Her book distills the most relevant information from 200 published research studies to provide a roadmap for progressing from nursing research to middle-range theory to optimum practice regimens. It is based on tested knowledge, clear evidence, and refined caring perspectives. Step by step, the text identifies and critiques research suited for developing cumulative knowledge for practice and uses the research to develop middle-range theories that apply across all health care settings. It then presents the evidence for practice for each middle range theory, refocuses EBP within nursing knowledge and within defined levels of readiness for practice, and recommends changes for practice based on evidence. Grounded in the Roy Adaptation Model of Nursing, the book provides a single conceptual basis for synthesis of research into middle range theories for use across all patient populations. It clarifies ways to select research from one conceptual basis to build middle-range theories, how to classify evidence for practice by levels of readiness, and recommend research-based changes in practice. The text includes quantitative and qualitative research designs and offers instruments to measure major concepts for implementation. Also included are plentiful examples, tables that display values across studies, definitions of major terms and concepts, and diagrams of concepts. Supplementing the text is a faculty guide for using the text to teach critical thinking at multiple graduate levels and videos illuminating each section of the book. Key Features: Explains clearly how middle-range theories grow from research Designed for implementation in practice Uses Royís five core ìadaptationî contexts as organizing themes: coping, changing life events, loss, chronic health condition, and traumatic events Constitutes a seminal work from a pre-eminent nursing theorist and educator Includes faculty guide and videos elucidating each section of the book

Dietrich Bonhoeffer's example of self-sacrificing discipleship has for over fifty years inspired Christians around the world in both their resistance to evil and their devotion to Jesus Christ. Yet for some readers--particularly those who suffer trauma, abuse, and other forms of violence--Bonhoeffer's insistence on self-sacrifice, on becoming a person for others, may prove more harmful than liberating. For those already socialized into self-abnegation, uncritical applications of Bonhoeffer's teachings may reinforce submission, rather than resistance, to evil. This study explores Bonhoeffer's understandings of selfhood and spiritual formation, both in his own experience and writings and in light of the role of gender in psycho-spiritual development. The central constructive chapter creates a mediated conversation between Bonhoeffer and these feminist psychologists on the spiritual formation of survivors of trauma and abuse, including not only dimensions of his thinking to be critiqued from this perspective but also important resources he contributes toward a truly liberating Christian spirituality for those on the underside of selfhood. The book concludes with suggestions regarding the broader relevance of this study and implications for ministry. The insights for spiritual formation developed here provide powerful proof of Bonhoeffer's continuing and concretely contextualized relevance for readers across the full spectrum of human selfhood.

Brain Evolution Language And Psychopathology In Schizophrenia

This book provides a comprehensive review of new developments in the study of language processing and related neural networks in schizophrenia by addressing the complex link between psychopathology, language and evolution at different levels of analysis. Psychopathological symptoms in schizophrenia are mainly characterized by thought and language disorders, which are strictly intertwined. In particular, language is the distinctive dimension of human beings and is ontologically related to brain development. Although normal at the levels of segmental phonology and morphological organization, the speech of patients suffering from schizophrenia is often characterized by flattened intonation and word-finding difficulties. Furthermore, research suggests that the superior temporal gyrus and specific prefrontal areas which support language in humans are altered in people with schizophrenia. Brambilla and Marini bring together international contributors to explore the link between brain evolution and the psychopathological features of schizophrenia, with a focus on language and its neural underpinnings. Divided into three sections the book covers: • brain evolution and language phylogenesis • brain abnormalities in schizophrenia • psychopathology and schizophrenia. This theoretical approach will appeal to professionals including clinical psychologists, cognitive neuroscientists, neuropsychiatrists, neuropsychologists, neurolinguists, and researchers considering the links between brain evolution, language and psychopathology in schizophrenia.
