    No full text
    Rising tuition rates are detailed as a driver of increased student employment, potentially leading to reduced time and academic performance. We observed this relationship across 3 cohorts of Genetics (BIOL-211), totaling 238 students. Students working 20+ hours scored significantly fewer total points (p=0.0089), exam points (p=0.0255), and were more likely to incur a failed assignment (p=0.0025). These data represent an important metric for identifying and treating underlying factors associated with reduced STEM performance and retention

    Addressing Aggressive Behaviors in Long Term Care Settings: How Do Caregivers Feel Supported?

    Get PDF
    Caregivers are faced with great challenges when it comes to handling aggressive behaviors among long term care residents and, therefore, need support in managing resident aggression. Qualitative in depth interviews will be cond ucted with a convenience sample of caregivers on the occurrence and management of aggressive behaviors in long term care settings. The findings of the research will show that caregivers have difficulties handling aggressive situations which sometimes leads to caregiver stress and high turnover. Long term care facilities give inadequate support in managing aggressive behaviors leading to challenges in staffing. Findings will help fill the gap in the published research on what makes caregivers feel supported and provide evidence based recommendations to help facilities support and train caregivers on effective interventions in managing aggressive behavior

    No full text
    Through a carefully curated selection of readings highlighting important empirical research on family life in the U.S., The Sociology of Families Reader: Issues, Perspectives, and Debates introduces students to the major questions, influential findings, and contested interpretations that animate the sociology of families today.The volume is organized into nine units, each dedicated to a unique aspect of family life. Units begin with a brief introduction, which situates the readings for that unit within broader patterns and trends playing out in both the institution of family and in society at large. Units I and II examine culturally dominant conceptions of family life and the dramatic ways in which the institution of family has changed over time. The remaining units are arranged in step with the life course, from dating and cohabitation to marriage and divorce. Students read about sexuality, reproduction, parenting, as well as violence and abuse within the family context. Additional topics include women’s conformity or resistance to traditional weddings, family diversity and gender convergence, college hookup culture, marriage equality, how divorce affects children, childfree adults, corporal punishment, and more.Insightful and engaging, The Sociology of Families Reader is an ideal resource for courses and programs in family studies and sociology.https://cornerstone.lib.mnsu.edu/university-archives-msu-authors/1453/thumbnail.jp
