Children at risk : the precarious state of children's well-being in America by Janice Shaw Crouse( Book )
5 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 393 libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: The desire for our children to be free from want and danger and to be able to enjoy their youth in innocence would seem to be universal. Conventional wisdom says that parents in every socio-economic level of society share the dream of preserving their children's innocence. All want to provide a childhood and adolescence that shelters and protects children from the harshness of life and nurtures them until they are able to withstand the onslaught of reality. One need only look at troubled areas of the world, such as Northern Ireland, parts of the Middle East, or any number of other points on the globe, to see how weak is any communion forged out of these universal desires for the welfare of children. Even in the United States, the competition of ideas and values about what represents the "good" society in which to raise our children is fierce-as are differing views about the value of innocence and even life itself. These differing ideas and values affect people's actions even when they have never reflected on them, or have never cared enough to formulate those values into a coherent worldview. Crouse contends that without morals, children are at risk. Moral boundaries, not moral relativism, provide a safe haven for children by preserving their innocence and protecting them from predators and pedophiles. When authentic religious faith has been quashed, children are no longer safe. When the underlying values are wrong, when there are no common values unifying a people, even the best programs and most honorable of intentions are doomed to failure. Well-intentioned programs and policies inevitably fail miserably without an undergirding moral foundation, as is documented by an abundance of data and the social trends in America today
Marriage matters : perspectives on the private and public importance of marriage by Janice Shaw Crouse( Book )
6 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 176 libraries worldwide
In Marriage Matters, Janice Shaw Crouse argues that marriage is a critical element in a free society and that society's most vulnerable communities, especially minorities and the poor, suffer the most from the nation's retreat from marriage. Crouse writes that marriage advances the public interest and we should create laws and policies that support rather than undermine it. She demonstrates both the public and private importance of marriage, and organizes her argument in a thoughtful and logical manner. Compared to other household arrangements, Crouse observes, marriage is by far the best for raising children and offers financial advantages as well. Writing about bullying, Crouse shows how the trend away from marriage has lead to poor child-rearing and to some of the nation's worst contemporary problems. In household arrangements with an absence of traditional fathers, the government has in some ways overtaken this role by creating social programs such as food stamps, Social Security, and Medicare. Social programs are but a small part of an effective solution. The groundwork for strong marriages and lasting relationships is examined in detail. Crouse then discusses the role of sex in marriages and the harmful influence of casual sex. The second half of the work shows how marriage matters to individuals (specifically to women and children) and depicts same-sex marriage as a threat to the institution. Other public policy issues affecting marriage are also explored

Advocacy in the Courtroom: The Moot Court by Judie Mosier Thorpe( Book )
1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
A moot court program developed for undergraduate debaters at Ball State University (Indiana) is presented. Following a brief introduction that establishes the benefits of such a program for the students and the department of communication, the first section of the paper explains how the moot court concept was modified to emphasize communication skills. The next three sections describe the steps taken by the students involved in the competition, present the actual procedures on the day of the event, and list the responsibilities of the various participants, including the debate coaches and volunteer lawyers. The paper's last two sections suggest possible improvements in the program and affirm the value of the moot court as an enriching educational experience. A bibliography is provided, and the appendixes include detailed descriptions of past exercises and the actual materials used for the program. (Jl)
The Extra-Curricular Perspective: The Moot Court by Janice Shaw Crouse( Book )
1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
At Ball State (Indiana) University, the moot court format's replication of real-world advocacy has been found far more conducive to teaching ethics and values than debate because it provides internal monitoring devices and instantaneous feedback. Of course, the main purpose of the moot court is to polish communication skills. Still, even with this emphasis on communications ethics, ethical and moral questions emerge primarily in three areas: (1) the role of evidence, (2) the use of persuasion and argument, and (3) responsibilities to the client and to society. Questions of evidence are particularly important during the first two sections of moot court, the opening statement and the examination of witnesses. During these phases, accuracy, completeness, relevance, openness, understanding, and reason are stressed. Given the importance of closing arguments and the difficulty of formulating objective rules, students are asked to judge persuasive arguments by effects, truthfulness, type of appeal, intent, and means. Lastly, the realism of the moot court format forcefully impresses upon the students their responsibilities to the client and to society. Although it is unclear whether ethics can be taught, the moot court format does pose many ethical questions that student advocates must grapple with and answer. (Appendixes contain copies of moot court scenarios and agendas.) (Jl)
The Hidden Other within: An Alternative to Psycho-Biological Interpretations of Intrapersonal Communication by Janice Shaw Crouse( Book )
1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Communication scholars have only recently begun to consider internal processes of thought as essential components of interpersonal communication. In 1964 a reorientation of thinking to include intrapersonal processes as integral to the communication process was first urged. The "hidden other" refers to the wellspring of the mind and its role in intrapersonal communication. Intrapersonal communication is dominated by interpretations of the events that happen and the incoming data that the individual assimilates. Intrapersonal communication is influenced by the memories that are stored, the emotions that drive the individual, and the will that can be summoned to bear on the situation at hand. In addition, there is considerable mutual influence going on between the emotions, memories, interpretations, and intrapersonal communication. Those interactions determine what is dominant in intrapersonal communication. Therefore, self-talk must be governed by a compass point of faith and ethics that will reveal the distorted memories, damaged emotions, weak wills, and false interpretations that prevent us from seeing things as they really are and negatively influence the ways we talk to ourselves. Will, alone, is insufficient to enable the individual to see truth clearly. The spotlight of faith must go one step further. It is not enough merely to see the truth; faith must link up with will to enable the individual to do the right thing regarding that truth. (Thirty-four references are attached.) (Rae)
