Ethnicity and mental health : factors contributing to help seeking practices among Hatians by Harry Damus( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The purpose of this study was to examine how various factors contribute to the attitudes toward seeking psychological help among English speaking Haitians. Fifty Four English speaking Haitians responded to a questionnaire consisting of 4 parts: demographic section, attitudes toward seeking professional psychological help (ATSPPH), preference of mental health characteristics, and first choice of help for personal problems. It was hypothesized that among predictors such as social economic status of the clients, special characteristics of the mental health professional (language, gender of the therapist, and ethnicity of the therapist) age of the clients, education level of the clients, and ethnicity of the mental health counselor would be the strongest influence for seeking psychological help. Overall, Haitians had negative attitudes toward seeking professional psychological help. Preference of mental health professional of the same ethnic background negatively correlated with the ATSPPH total score. ANOVAs' analyses indicated the following: females had significantly more positive attitudes toward seeking professional psychological help than males; more males preferred mental health professionals with a similar ethnic background than females; males preferred a mental health professional who speaks a similar language; males indicated that their first choice of help for personal problems would be to seek help from clergymen. Results of the multiple regression analyses indicated that preference of mental health professionals of the same ethnic background and preference of mental health professionals with similar language significantly predicted Stigma Tolerance. Other factors such as social economic status, level of education and age were not significant predictors of seeking professional psychological help. The hypothesis under investigation was not fully confirmed. Limitations of the study and suggestions for future research are discussed
On racial bias : en empirical study on racism among mock jurors by Roberto Sanchez( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In this study, racial and ethnic bias were examined by asking subjects to make judgments about a mock Black Hispanic, a mock White Hispanic, or a mock White non- Hispanic who was represented in a short vignette of an accused rapist and murderer. The participants were 150 psychology students who were currently enrolled at Carlos Albizu University. The purpose of this study was to examine whether race or ethnicity were a significant factor in determination of guilt and the determination in length of sentence. The independent variables examined were the race and ethnicity of the mock defendants presented in a legal case, as well as the race/ethnicity of the participants. These variables were used to analyze and examine whether the participants in the study would demonstrate juror bias based on race/and or ethnicity and to analyze whether participants would consistently find the mock defendant guilty, and assign longer sentences based on race rather than based on ethnicity. The participants were divided by one of the three conditions (the three forms) and then by the race/ethnicity of the students based on self-reported demographics. The results of this study found no significant effect or differences between any White group, Black American group, Black Hispanics group, or the White Hispanic group when rating guilt and the length of sentencing for the White Hispanics mock defendant condition Black Hispanic mock defendant condition, or the White mock defendant condition. Therefore, the null hypothesis was accepted, as there were no differences between participants in this study in the determination of guilt or innocence, or in the length of sentences, regardless of race/ethnicity of the participant or the condition presented
Program design to treat elderly patients with depression by Douglas R Johnson( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This program has been designed to treat elderly patients with depression. It would be a combination of two concepts, ADULT DAY CARE (ADC) and VOLUNTEER CENTER. The Volunteer Adult Day Center (VADC) would be a community based group program. The VADC to treat elderly patients with depression would utilize a series of therapeutic interventions based on Psychopharmacology, Behavioral activation treatment for depression (BATD), Volunteer Work, and Activities aiming at reducing a variety of symptoms relating to Depression. The program would serve the elderly population between the ages of 65 and over with depression to help them gain effective coping skills in dealing with both their psychological reactions and any loss of function they may have sustained. This program offers a relatively low cost option for addressing a common and potentially debilitating problem among the elderly. It takes advantage of the benefits of a Faith Community-Health System Partnership. And it would combine a demonstratively effective psychological intervention with elements like volunteerism and spirituality often associated with a religious orientation. Furthermore, patients, who have benefited from receiving and giving help, can continue working as volunteers in the center as a part of treatment maintenance. They would not only work as volunteers, but at the same time they will participate in different activities, thus continuously receiving follow up health benefits from the program
