An analysis of sociodemographic and health-related variables related to occurrence and treatment outcome in Mexican American and non-Hispanic white clients diagnosed with alcohol-related disordersReed, Pamela; Garduño, Rosemarie; Glittenberg, Jody; Colbert, Lucy (The University of Arizona., 1995)This study analyzed sociodemographic and health-related variables related to occurrence and treatment outcome in Mexican American and non-Hispanic white clients diagnosed with alcohol-related disorders. A sample of 551 clients diagnosed with alcohol abuse and dependence in a community treatment center were analyzed in the context of three research questions. Demographic and treatment outcome comparisons were made between two prominent ethnic groups--Mexican Americans and non-Hispanic whites. A demographic and health risk profile was derived utilizing standard statistical methods. The findings of the study suggest that Mexican Americans differ from non-Hispanic whites in various demographic characteristics and treatment outcome variables. However, considerable cross-cultural complexity exists such that more refined comparisons are essential in order to derive meaningful program design and clinical treatment strategies.
Reality TV, Relational Aggression, And Romance: The Effects of Reality Show Viewing On Relational Aggression and Relational Quality in Romantic RelationshipsSegrin, Chris G.; Swiatkowski, Paulina; Segrin, Chris G.; Stevens Aubrey, Jennifer L.; Bonito, Joseph A. (The University of Arizona., 2018)Reality shows remain a prominent genre of today’s media culture. More importantly, plot lines tend to be dominated by interpersonal relationship trajectories, which often include conflict such as relational aggression (Coyne, Robins, & Nelson, 2010). When relational aggression is included in analyses that compare the content of scripted and reality shows, researchers find that aggression is more likely to occur in reality shows than scripted shows (Coyne et al., 2010). Furthermore, reality shows are often described as “unscripted,” portraying “real” people during their “ordinary” days (Riddle & De Simone, 2013). Relational aggression is link to physical violence and other poor social and psychological effects (e.g., Caetano, Vaeth, & Ramisetty-Mikler, 2008; Linder, Crick, & Collins, 2002) and, therefore, needs better understanding. Therefore, the present study’s theoretical foundation in cultivation theory, theory of reasoned action, social cognitive theory, and social comparison theory sought to understand how reality shows influence adult viewers and their perceptions and behaviors within romantic relationships. Four-week longitudinal data from 117 dyads was analyzed for potential media effects and how those effects could influence relational aggression within relationships and relational quality. The results suggest minimal media effects but do support negative longitudinal effects of relational aggression on relational quality. Limitations and future directions are discussed.
Caregiving spouses’ experiences of relational uncertainty and partner influence in the prolonged relational transition of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementiasCooper, R. Amanda; Pitts, Margaret J.; Department of Communication, University of Arizona (SAGE Publications, 2021-12-08)Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias cause gradual cognitive and communicative decline over a period of several years creating a prolonged transitional period in the lives of people with the disease and their spouse. Relational turbulence theory served as a lens to examine 18 in-depth interviews with caregiving spouses regarding their experiences of relational uncertainty, and interference and facilitation from their partner throughout this prolonged relational transition. Counterintuitively, the experience of relational uncertainty was greatly influenced by the certainties of relational change and termination (death) that shifted the temporal focus of uncertainty to the future. Communicative symptoms and aggressive behavior were a main source of interference. Despite the impairment of the disease, caregiving spouses recognized their partners’ expressions of gratitude, moments of recognition, and simple expressions of love as facilitation.
