Article
Batterer Intervention Programs (BIPs) show minimal evidence of treatment efficacy in curbing post-intervention recidivism. These interventions demonstrate even less significant treatment potential for Immigrant Male Batterers (IMB) who contend with intersecting pre- and post-migration barriers to intervention uptake in BIPs in their host countries....
Article
Full-text available
Before COVID-19, 1 in 3 women and girls, globally, were victimized by an abusive partner in intimate relationships. However, the current pandemic has amplified cases of domestic violence (DV) against women and girls, with up to thrice the prevalence in DV cases compared to the same time last year. Evidence of the adverse effects of the pandemic on...
Article
Full-text available
Male victims of rape and sexual violence (SV) constitute a highly stigmatized group who doubly suffer the trauma of SV and hegemonic notions of real masculinity that punishes weakness and vulnerability in men. This double exposure produces a stigmatizing identity (i.e., male victim stigma) that is embedded in grand narratives about male SV. However...
Article
Full-text available
A growing body of research shows the promise and efficacy of technology‐based or digital interventions in improving the health and well‐being of survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV). In addition, mental health comorbidities such as anxiety, post‐traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and depression occur three to five times more frequently in su...

About one in eight U.S. high school students in Grades 9 to 12 report experiencing teen dating violence (TDV) in the form of physical, sexual, or psychological dating violence in the past year in person, on school grounds, and online. Compared with their urban counterparts, rural teens face nearly double the rate of physical dating abuse and an ele...

BACKGROUND Black boys and men from disinvested communities are disproportionately victims, perpetrators, and witnesses of youth violence and homicide. Yet, they face several critical barriers to accessing and engaging with violence prevention programs. These barriers include but are not limited to historical mistrust of legal and medical systems, s...

The global COVID-19 pandemic has driven innovations in methods to sustain initiatives for the design, development, evaluation, and implementation of clinical support technology in long-term care settings while removing risk of infection for residents, family members, health care workers, researchers and technical professionals. We adapted tradition...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Scholars have recognized dating violence as a public health and social justice issue among youths. Between one in four to one in eight teens in the United States report being a victim of dating violence, including physical, psychological, sexual violence, and online/school bullying. As it turns out, teenagers residing in rural areas are two times m...

There is increasing evidence on the importance of education access and quality for the abolition of child labour. However, to date, only a few evidence assessments have documented the effectiveness of educational policies and programmes with respect to child labour. This Rapid Evidence Assessment (REA) aims at filling this gap, by providing a compr...
Article
Introduction Rural youth are twice as likely as urban youth to experience some forms of teen dating violence (TDV), and significant barriers to accessing support services for physical, psychological, sexual violence. However, rural youth remain understudied and undersampled. Rural young men, in particular, are at risk for experiencing or perpetrati...

Physiological and behavioral sensors on consumer-grade wearable devices have great potential to inform augmented cognition applications in everyday living. However, lack of understanding of usability and function of new devices when embedded within larger technical systems is a barrier to their implementation in translational research. Practical ev...
Article
Full-text available
Introduction Studies show digital interventions such as mobile and wireless platforms (e.g., smartphone apps, text messaging) and web‐based platforms (online support groups and telehealth services) can improve the mental health outcomes for victims/survivors of partner abuse. Depression, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and anxiety are three t...

Storytelling, familiar folktales, and metaphors in psychotherapy and psychoanalysis are not novel therapeutic devices. These procedures have stimulated the therapeutic engagement of hard-to-reach patients. Many hard-to-reach patients, especially child victims of sexual abuse, lack well-defined terminologies, and vocabularies to express emotional vi...

Accordingly, best practices and treat...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In spite of hegemonic masculine notions that stereotype male victims of sexual violence as weak, unmanly, or deviants of heteronormativity; anecdotal, research and media evidence indicate men are disclosing sexual assault to trusted members of their social support system, including victim service providers (VSP). We identify VSPs as those who provi...

This psychobiography is an indirect estimate and seeks to be pragmatic in depicting the man and his mandate. After Barack Obama's presidency, we will yet see a sophisticated dismembering - death by pragmatic psychological autopsies - of the man and his quirks for years to come. This thesis was written in 2015 for a graduate-level class. It will uti...
Thesis
Antioxidants are chemicals that neutralize free-radicals oxidants in physiological systems. They can be classified as organic i.e. natural or synthetic antioxidants e.g. Manganese and Copper salicylates which have thus by this study demonstrated promise for their potential for antioxidants activity as useful superoxide free-radical scavenging eleme...

Question
Preferably in the US. 'Birth order' in this case would ask whether respondent is a first-, middle-, last-born, or only child. Any attendant metrics measuring behavioral variations in related sibling from same household and same father will be highly advantageous! Grazie.
Question
Help needed finding a quantitative or preferably quantitative survey instrument, that has become acclaimed in assessing self-reported exposures in frequency, intensity and timing of any forms of police violence. Thank you!

Project
There is increasing evidence on the importance of education access and quality for the abolition of child labour. However, to date, only a few evidence assessments have documented the effectiveness of educational policies and programmes with respect to child labour. This Rapid Evidence Assessment (REA) aims to fill this gap by providing a comprehensive review of the effects of educational policies and programmes on child labour. With the objective to provide policy and programmatic recommendations, the review will focus on quantitative and mixed methods studies that identify causal effects. The REA will be complemented by an evidence gap map.
Project
Identify correlations between self-reports of exposure to acute and chronic levels of police violence exposure linked to negative health utilization behaviors of preventive care in men. Generalized linear model correlational analyses are predicted to reveal variance in perceptions of anticipated injustice from primary or secondary police contact between non-Hispanic Black and Non-Hispanic White men correlate to primary health care use habits. The results should identify comparative progressions of discrepancies in individual and community perceptions of police violence and anticipated injustice as a subjective experience, preceding an ongoing systemic distrust linked to negative health behaviors among adult men in community with higher exposure to acute and chronic events of police violence.
