ABSTRACT

Mindful of the unique challenges that military spouses face, including frequent moves, distance from family networks, long duty hours of the soldier, and multiple family separations due to training and deployments, the military has emphasized the enhancement of resilience through programs and support organizations and in empirical evaluations of resilience-related interventions. Though these programs offer many to foster resilience, little research has been conducted to identify the characteristics associated with resiliency among military spouses. Given the lack of research in this area and the continued need to study military spouses' resiliency, research aimed at identifying correlates of resilience among military spouses was needed to enhance understanding of their subjective well-being. Psychological resilience represents a process of adapting well in the face of adversity. Resilience is the ability to power through difficult time;however, it does not mean that a resilient individual does not feel stress as others do. The key difference is they manage their stress to keep it under control. Subjective well-being and resilience may counter stress related to a global pandemic. For this study, data was collected from an online survey completed by 597 military spouses of active-duty service members. Quantitative data included demographics and Likert-style items about perceived stress scale, military, and COVID-19. Qualitative data were collected from four open-ended question and analyzed thematically. Quantitative and qualitative findings were documented in the final analysis. A main finding was military spouses have higher-than-average levels of perceived stress. There were slightly higher average scores among the military services with Army, Air Force, and Coast Guard spouses. While Navy and Marine spouses were slightly below the high level of stress, they remained well above the average level of stress for a general population. No significant differences were found for race, gender, and socioeconomic status. Two primary themes evolved from the analysis of the open-ended question for contributors to stress: employment and loneliness and separation. Additionally, findings of the open-ended questions were the top resources that respondents used during COVID-19 were family and friends. The top resources highlighted that would have been helpful or needed were financial assistance and none. For the military lifestyle, the top support or resources needed are employment, housing, and medical security. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2023 APA, all rights reserved)

ABSTRACT

This research seeks to analyze the experiences of psychosocial coping in the context of Obligatory Social Isolation, brough about by COVID-19, in heads of families of Metropolitan Lima, Peru. In order to do this, we developed a qualitative research with a phenomenological design;semi-structured interviews were carried out with 17 participants, heads of their families, from districts with high and low income. The results show that, on the one hand, participants experience styles focused on the problem, which encompass active coping, planning, restructuring their activities and routines, as well as displacement and change of priorities. On the other hand, we have the styles centered on emotions, such as acceptance and agency, search for emotional support, positive reinterpretation and the release of emotions. Likewise, there are differences in the ways in which people cope, both regarding their belonging to districts with higher or lower income, or in relation to whether they are men, women or non-binary people. We conclude that the coping experiences vary according to the different socioeconomic and gender characteristics of the participants, requiring an intersectional perspective in the analysis. © 2022 Universidad de Alicante.

ABSTRACT

En el entorno familiar se empiezan a construir los proyectos vitales, acompañando a los sujetos en el tránsito de su vida. Una de estas transiciones es la inserción laboral, y las familias desempeñan un papel clave en este proceso. El presente estudio se inserta en una investigación más amplia sobre la Educación social y COVID-19 en Iberoamérica: exclusión sociolaboral tras la pandemia y buenas prácticas para la inclusión. Se trata de un estudio exploratorio, con metodología cualitativa, cuyos datos se han recogido mediante entrevista grupal (grupos focales), con preguntas semiestructuradas, que se han analizado con el software cualitativo Atlas-ti (v.22) Los grupos focales se constituyeron con profesionales (informantes clave) de la intervención socioeducativa con familias, que participan en servicios y programas para la inserción socio-laboral tras la pandemia, procedentes de cuatro países iberoamericanos: Brasil, Colombia, España y México. Mediante esta información se pretende conocer las situaciones de exclusión social, las poblaciones más afectadas, y las principales propuestas de intervención. Los resultados que orientan este estudio se centran en: a) Los jóvenes y el apoyo familiar durante y tras la pandemia;b) El género y los cuidados (el apoyo vinculado a los roles). Se encontró acuerdo entre los profesionales con respecto a la valoración del papel proactivo de padres, madres y cuidadores/as en el fomento de la autonomía personal y familiar de los miembros. Así, la intervención de agentes socioeducativos (entidades del 3° sector), se consideró pertinente para orientar, acompañar e identificar las habilidades sociales y laborales que facilitan la inserción sociolaboral.Alternate :The family environment is the place where vital projects begin, accompanying people in the transit that life itself entails. One of these transitions is labor insertion, and families play a key role in this process. This study is part of a broader research developed around Social Education and COVID-19 in Ibero-America: social and labor exclusion after the pandemic and good practices for inclusion. This is an exploratory study, with a qualitative methodology, with data collected through group interviews (focus groups), with semi-structured questions. The data analysis has been carried out through the qualitative software ATLAS.ti (v.22). The focus groups consist of professionals implied in socio-educational intervention with families, who participate in services and programs aimed at socio-labor insertion after the pandemic. These key informants come from four countries of the Ibero-American context: Brazil, Colombia, Spain and Mexico, and through the data they have provided, it is intended to know the situations of social exclusion, the populations that are most affected, as well as the proposals for intervention and insertion indicators on which they are based. Results of this research are interpreted within the framework of the two main categories that have guided the study. These categories derived from the focus groups information: a) Young people and family support during and after the pandemic;b) Gender and care (support linked to gender roles);The professionals participating in this study show agreement regarding the assessment of the proactive role of fathers, mothers and caregivers in promoting the personal and family autonomy of the members. Likewise, the intervention of socio-educational agents (entities of the 3rd sector) it is considered pertinent to guide, accompany and identify the main social and labor skills, and consequently, facilitators of social and labor insertion.Alternate :É no ambiente familiar que os projetos vitais começam a ser construídos, acompanhando os sujeitos no trânsito a própria vida.

ABSTRACT

Vaccines represent an important preventive strategy in paediatric populations, but the rate of vaccination has been constantly declining in the last decade. Concerns about vaccines' safety represent one of the main causes of vaccine hesitancy among parents. The aim of this study was the analysis of the immediate adverse reactions induced by vaccines included in the national program of immunization for the first year of life. Method: Eighty-one children born between 1st of January 2018 and 31st of March 2019 were included. The vaccination refusal rate, and incidence and severity of adverse effects induced by three mandatory vaccines (Hexavalent, Prevenar 13 and MMR) were analyzed. The level of parents' education and the sources of information that were consulted in order to understand the adverse effects were also analyzed. Results and conclusions: The rate of adverse events was lower than 30% of the total number of doses, and most of them were mild. The incidence and severity of vaccine-induced adverse effects were correlated with prematurity. The vaccine hesitancy rate was lower than the national one, possibly due to a high level of education and good information provided by doctors that might have led to parents' concerns regarding vaccination being answered.

ABSTRACT

Objective Background Method Results Conclusion Implications This brief report explores whether the COVID‐19 Pandemic impacted ideal family size in the United States.Although COVID‐19 negatively impacted short‐term fertility expectations, preferences, and behaviors in the United States, it remains unknown whether the pandemic contributed to changes in family size ideals more broadly.The sample consists of 1823 respondents from the General Social Survey (GSS) who were originally interviewed before the COVID‐19 pandemic (in 2016 and 2018) and were re‐interviewed in the first 6 months of the COVID‐19 pandemic (in August/September 2020), a period when pandemic‐related stress and uncertainty was particularly pronounced. A within‐person fixed effects approach is utilized.Findings from within‐person fixed effects analyses suggested that the pandemic had no impact on the quantum of ideal family size responses. These findings were robust to alternative specifications and were similar to what was observed in a parallel analysis of how the Great Recession impacted ideal family size.Findings pointed to stability in ideal family size in the first 6 months of the COVID‐19 pandemic in the US.Future work should explore the disjuncture between short‐term fertility intentions and behaviors and longer‐term family size ideals.

ABSTRACT

In this introduction to the handbook, we explore the social phenomenon of transnational families, provide an overview about the scholarship, and discuss emerging challenges that affect transnational families in the twenty-first century. In the first section, we discuss the classical transnational family literature and its development in the last decades of the twentieth century. Central concepts such as the formation of transnational families, reciprocity, co-presence, and care circulation are outlined here. In the second section, we propose four analytical lenses to understand current transnational families in the scope of increasing cross-border social inequalities and in an increasingly interconnected globalised world: (1) the concept social entanglements, (2) social cross-border assemblages, (3) the life-course perspective, and (4) the notion of (im)mobility regimes. Finally, we map out the emerging challenges that affect transnational families in the twenty-first century, such as climate change, war and political crisis, and mobility restrictions and social distancing measures responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. © 2023, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG.

ABSTRACT

Despite reductions in health disparities among US children during the 2 decades leading up to the COVID-19 pandemic, the relationship between health and income remains much stronger in the US than in peer countries. The study found an inverse relationship between income and all analyzed health conditions, which was particularly strong for mental health disorders. By limiting their sample to the lower part of the income distribution, the authors focused on a group for whom the relationship between income and health is expected to be especially strong.

ABSTRACT

Background Obesity and its related cardiovascular-metabolic diseases are growing public health concerns. Despite global attention to obesity, its prevalence is steeply increasing in developing countries, especially in children and adolescents. Eating behaviours and physical activity are modifiable risk factors for obesity that can variably be shaped by families. Eating behaviours and physical activity are especially important during adolescence, given its significance as a foundational period for developing healthy lifestyles. This qualitative study aimed to explore barriers and opportunities around creating healthy lifestyles among adolescents in Indonesia, focussing on family environments from diverse socio-demographic backgrounds. Method In-depth interviews using a semi-structured guide were undertaken with consecutively recruited 10–18-year-old adolescents with overweight or obesity, and their parents, from three different sites: urban (Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia), peri-urban (West Java Province) and rural (Banten Province). Thematic analysis was used to identify patterns of meaning. Results Nineteen dyads were interviewed. Thematic analysis revealed four themes: limited knowledge of healthy lifestyles;healthy lifestyles not a concern of daily life;limited parenting skills, including inequity around gender roles;and aspects of availability and accessibility. These interconnected barriers influenced lifestyle practices at home within the context of daily preferences and decisions around food and activities. Gender role inequity and healthy food accessibility were more prominent in rural families than in those from urban or peri-urban settings. Conclusions Healthy lifestyles in adolescence may be supported by strategies to enhance parenting skills, build individual motivation, and support the development of more enabling environments.

ABSTRACT

This study employed a qualitative content analysis of provincial policy documents, following deductive methods, to examine academic resilience and education policy developments across Canada during the COVID-19 pandemic. More specifically, the study explicates the nature and scope of provincial policy responses to the global pandemic that address academic issues, physical health and well-being, and mental health issues for K-12 students. The pan-Canadian analysis revealed a total of 62 documents were issued between January 2020 and December 2021 that addressed one or more of the triarchic dimensions of academic resilience. The findings suggested greater attention was devoted to academic issues and there was a general lack of policy differentiation in terms of how specific resources and supports were to be directed within provincial educational jurisdictions.Alternate :Cette étude a employé une analyse qualitative de contenu des documents de politiques provinciales, en suivant des méthodes déductives, pour examiner la ténacité scolaire et le développement des politiques d'éducation à travers le Canada pendant la pandémie de COVID-19. Plus précisément, l'étude détaille la nature et la portée des réponses politiques provinciales à la pandémie mondiale qui traitent des questions relatives à l'éducation, à la santé physique, au bien-être, et à la santé mentale des étudiants de la maternelle à la 12e année. L'analyse pancanadienne révèle qu'un total de 62 documents ont été publiés entre janvier 2020 et décembre 2021 qui abordaient une ou plusieurs dimensions triarchiques de la ténacité scolaire. Les conclusions mènent à penser qu'une plus grande attention est accordée aux problématiques scolaires et qu'il y a un manque général de différenciation dans les politiques quant à la façon dont les ressources et les soutiens seraient utilisés au sein des instances éducatives provinciales.

ABSTRACT

This study analyzes the survival strategies of Indonesian women from low-income families with different social and geographical backgrounds. The participants of this study are married women with children from poor families who live in the provinces of East Java and West Sumatra, Indonesia. This research uses the survey method;researchers received questionnaire responses from 857 respondents (457 respondents in East Java, and 400 respondents in West Sumatra). The results of this study indicate that the survival strategy of low-income families during the COVID-19 pandemic is based on the strength of their existing social capital, especially with the support of their families and neighbors. Heavy reliance on their internal social capital creates heightened vulnerability;this study reveals that not all low-income families receive assistance or benefits from the central or local governments. External assistance is pivotal to amplify their existing social capital and to enhance their resilience. This study also suggests that the government's policies designed to support low-income families need to emphasize women's agency and empowerment. © 2022, Journal of International Women''s Studies.

ABSTRACT

Artikel ini bertujuan untuk mempromosikan penyelesaian alternatif untuk menangani masalah atau perselisihan keluarga di Malaysia, yang dikenali sebagai mediasi. Mediasi adalah mekanisme penyelesaian alternatif yang paling sesuai untuk perselisihan keluarga, di mana objektifnya adalah untuk menjaga hubungan kekeluargaan. Isu keluarga adalah sesuatu yang sensitif, kerana ia melibatkan anak-anak dan harta hasil dari perkahwinan. Ini kerana peningkatan dari segi statistik mengenai konflik yang berlaku antara pasangan suami isteri di media sosial. Alasan untuk mengesyorkan mediasi keluarga adalah bagi mengelakkan publisiti dan perselisihan mereka diketahui umum. Perbincangan dan syarat-syarat penyelesaian pihak-pihak yang terlibat adalah sulit. Artikel ini membincangkan dan menjelaskan tentang prinsip dan proses mediasi dan bagaimana cara terbaik yang perlu diterapkan dalam penyelesaian perselisihan keluarga. Artikel ini juga menekankan perlunya keadilan perlu ditegakkan dalam menangani isu-isu keluarga. Dengan menggunakan analisis kandungan teks, artikel ini mengumpulkan dan menganalisis makna dan konsep, latar belakang dan sejarah serta struktur mediasi. Kajian ini membandingkan proses dan aplikasi mediasi keluarga di Australia dan New Zealand dengan Malaysia. Mediasi keluarga seperti yang dipraktikkan di negara-negara ini dapat menjadi rujukan bagi Malaysia bagi mewujudkan model mediasi keluarga yang praktikal di Malaysia.Alternate :Settlement of disputes outside of the court is quite popular nowadays as it gives more advantages compared to litigation. Many mechanisms can be applied under the umbrella of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), including mediation. Mediation is a suitable dispute settlement mechanism for family issues, where it seeks to preserve the familial relationship. Family issues are sensitive, as they involve children, maintenance, and matrimonial properties. The reason for recommending family mediation is to avoid the glare of publicity and keep the family disputes low-key and private. Discussion between the parties is confidential as to the terms of the settlements. This article discusses and explains the principles and process of mediation and how it is best applied in the settlement of family disputes. It also highlights the need for a family court in Malaysia. Applying qualitative research methodology, this article managed to gather and analyse the meaning, concept, historical background, structure and application of mediation. This article comparatively analyses family mediation practices in Australia and New Zealand. Family mediation as practised in these two countries can be a reference for the Malaysian government to learn from their experiences to establish a good and practical family mediation model in Malaysia.

ABSTRACT

This analysis of the Kyrgyz health system reviews developments in its organization and governance, financing, provision of services, health reforms and health system performance. A mandatory health insurance is in place, with the Mandatory Health Insurance Fund (MHIF) under the Ministry of Health acting as single public payer for almost all hospitals and providers of primary care. The benefits package of publicly covered services is defined in the State-Guaranteed Benefits Programme (SGBP). However, many services require co-payments and in 2019 only 69% of the population was covered by mandatory health insurance. Health expenditure per capita is one of the lowest in the WHO European Region, due to the country's small GDP per capita. Private spending, almost entirely in the form of out-ofpocket expenditure and including informal payments, accounted for 46.3% of health expenditure in 2019. Financial protection is undermined by low levels of public spending for health, resulting in financial hardship for people using health services. While there is a well-developed network of health facilities, the geographical distribution of health workers is uneven and there is an overall shortage of family doctors. Access to health services remains a challenge, which has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. While improvements have been made in recent years, communicable and noncommunicable diseases still pose a major problem and life expectancy prior to the COVID-19 pandemic was one of the lowest in the WHO European Region.

ABSTRACT

Polio virus, which causes a deadly disease that used to paralyze tens of thousands of children worldwide every year in the 1950s and 60s, is now spreading in London, New York and Jerusalem. It's happening for the first time in decades, spurring catch-up vaccination campaigns. A type 2 virus, related to the strain in the live oral vaccine used overseas, was first identified in samples from sewage works in north London in February. The virus has since been found in eight more treatment plants in different districts of the capital. Decades ago, before the introduction of the polio vaccination programme, up to 8000 people would develop paralysis due to polio every year in the UK.

ABSTRACT

Based on WeChat, the most popular social media application in contemporary China, this ethnographical case study reveals that the development of parental trust for teachers presents as an incremental process. It derives from parents' access to information shared by teachers online, unfolds across their engaging in constant collaborations with teachers, and increases with the formation of their close affective ties with teachers. Such a process is greatly dependent upon the formation of parents' liangxin (which is typically translated in English as "conscience") in regard to teachers. This study, conducted before the COVID-19 pandemic began, indicates that social media like WeChat has turned out to be a critical agent in parents' relationship with teachers that intervenes in their meaning-making process as well as their experience of building trust towards teachers.

ABSTRACT

Women are on the front line as carers in our society with 75% of the health and social care services being provided by women globally.1 They are often lower paid, experience harsher working conditions and suffer from health issues due to their work. They also represent the largest most diverse demographic that is negatively affected when disasters strike, including the COVID-19 pandemic.

ABSTRACT

Background: The COVID-19 pandemic is one of the worst public health crises in a century, with an expected death toll of several million worldwide and an even greater number of bereaved. Methods: We conducted qualitative research in the form of semi- structured interviews, using a consensus qualitative research method. We approached 16 participants who had a relative die from COVID-19 in hospice care or in a social services facility in Slovakia, or whose relative died during the peak of the pandemic of another lethal disease. Results: By analysing the interviews with the participants, we developed six main domains that formed the core themes of the testimonies, namely: the course of the disease, experiencing placement during the anti-pandemic measures, the attitude of the staff, experiences of other family members, the last moments of life, and experiencing the grieving period.The main difference in comparing the testimonies of relatives who had a family member in hospice and those who had a family member in a social services facility was the perception of communication by health professionals.Relatives of the deceased in social services facilities subjectively described communication and the transmission of health information as having been inadequate, while relatives of the deceased in hospices reported a positive experience and no negative comments were observed. Another difference was that relatives with family members in hospices were more prepared and reconciled with the death of their family member compared to relatives with a family member in a social services facility. Conclusion: Exploring the experience of bereaved relatives provides valuable insight into how families coped and adapted when their family member was dying during the COVID-19 pandemic. This can help to better know and understand the needs of patients and their relatives in health and social care facilities, as well as the needs of the bereaved.

ABSTRACT

For the graduating class of 2023, more than two years of high school has been impacted by the COViD-19 pandemic and the accompanying virtual learning, uncertainty, anxiety, and concerns about their own health or the health of family members. According to the college admissions consulting firm College Transitions, there are 31 colleges and universities listed as the "most selective," institutions that accept fewer than 15 percent of all applicants. There were eleven million applications filed the year Steinberg wrote his book even though there were essentially the same number of high school graduates. DeHaemers: When I was reading your book, I was thinking about how many institutions in the country are not the top-flight, elite, or selective institutions upon which you focus in the book.

ABSTRACT

This article examines the causal effects from Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefit enhancements on eligible food expenditures, the fiscal years 2020 and 2021 considered. Through a quasi-experimental research design embedded in a difference-indifference estimation method, the paper uses Consumer Expenditure Diary Survey data to yield interesting results. I find that enrolled households adjust their spending behavior in response to boosts in in-kind transfer. However, on eligible foods, increases in the program allocation levels disproportionately impacted participants spending. Estimates undergone several sensitivity checks which successfully validate their robustness. As policy implication, achieving a more meaningful impact requires food assistance experts to design some threshold of expenses for eligible expenditures.
