How well are children's needs met in the children to children grief-support groupsLauver, Philip J.; Parrish, Pamela Jo, 1953- (The University of Arizona., 1994)The primary purpose of this study was to determine whether Children to Children's grief-support groups helped young participants cope with their grief, and which elements of the program were most helpful. The population for this study consisted of six bereaved children between the ages of 5 and 18 who were referred by Children to Children. The instrument used in this study was developed specifically to measure grief in children by self-report. Other information-gathering techniques were used to determine children's attributions for change and their view of their families before and after the loved one's death. It was found that the Children to Children grief-support groups were helpful to the participants. Participants cited two components of the program as most helpful: ritual, verbal sharing of the circumstances of the loved one's death, and being with other children who were going through a similar experience.
Systematic Review of Stigmas Present against Disabled Children Globally and How These Stigmas Vary across Regions and Population and Comprehensive Review of the Perceptions and Attitudes that Disabled Children Face GloballyPusapati, Nithin; The University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix; Beyda, David (The University of Arizona., 2019)Current literature shows that disabled individuals are vulnerable compared to their abled body counterparts in a variety of measures, disability varies across regions and cultures and that attitudes toward these disabilities may also vary globally. Literature searches using keyword searches were done based on search strings of “childhood disability” with other phrases. Outcome variables included region, population studied, a general description of the attitudes, a broader category into which the type of attitude falls and whether or not there were persistent negative attitudes toward disability. Meta analyses were done for outcomes. An initial 114 articles were screened to be relevant to the topic. 15 articles had data extracted. Descriptive results demonstrated that cultural and religious norms are associated with negative attitudes toward disability. Meta analyses did not demonstrate any statistical significance between the cultural, religious or regional factors in the likelihood of having negative attitudes toward disability. The association between religion, culture and region and the likelihood of having negative attitudes was not statistically significant. The presence of negative attitudes on the basis of culturally or religiously held beliefs, globally, does appear to exist on review of the literature.
