Calling Participants for Study on Social Support for Confidants Post-Sexual Assault Disclosure


Hello! I am writing to introduce myself, explain a research project that I am conducting, and invite your participation in this study. My name is Danielle Biss; I’m a master's student in the School of Communication at San Diego State U with research interests in feminist rhetorics, embodiment and communication, and critical organizational communication.


My current research project seeks to better understand the challenges of a confidant providing social support when navigating conversations related to a survivor’s disclosure of sexual assault. Importantly, I focus my study on the social support from a confidant's perspective. If a female you know shared with you face-to-face their story of a sexual assault, you may qualify for this study. In the age of #MeToo, these types of conversations are becoming more common. I am interested in learning how people navigate the challenges in providing social support when told face-to-face of a sexual assault from a female peer. The study may have the practical benefit in discovering the communicative strategies that help individuals (usually friends and family members) provide social support when navigating conversations related to a survivor’s disclosure of sexual assault. My advisor for this project is Dr. Patricia Geist-Martin (pgeist@sdsu.edu). This study is approved by San Diego State U’s Institutional Review Board.


Furthermore, I am very interested in hearing the experiences of any individuals who self-identify as confidants of sexual assault disclosure within the last three years. I seek to hear testimony from a diverse sampling of people, and connecting with individuals across the discipline will underscore the diversity of experiences of sexual assault and sexual violence. If you are interested in being interviewed or have any questions, please email me at dbiss3342@sdsu.edu. Of course, if you have further questions or concerns, I am happy to respond. All interviews will be conducted in a private location or via Skype. Thank you for considering participation in this research. I look forward to hearing from you.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

WERA FOCAL MEETING A Tenth Year Anniversary 5-8 August 2019 The University of Tokyo, Japan

Deadline for Submission: January 31, 2019; 23:59 Tokyo Time (GMT +9)

The World Education Research Association (WERA) invites submissions for papers, symposia, and posters for the WERA Focal Meeting to be held in Tokyo, Japan from 5 to 8 August, 2019. WERA is an association of major national, regional, and specialty education research associations dedicated to sharing scholarship, developing networks, and mutually supporting capacity building. The WERA 2019 Focal Meeting is an integral part of the annual conference of the Japanese Educational Research Association (JERA) and consists of a program of paper, symposia, and poster sessions on topics of world-wide emphases and significance. WERA Focal Meetings are embedded in the conference of a WERA member association.

In general, the WERA Focal Meeting seeks to feature research that includes more than one country or is comparative, cross-cultural, international, or transnational in conceptualization, scope, or design. Paper and poster submissions need to meet these criteria; symposia submissions can include papers from single sites or countries as long as the presentations combined are from different countries and the aims of the symposium are anchored in worldwide or global issues. Duplicate submission through the JERA and WERA online submission systems is not allowed.

Founded in 2009, WERA is celebrating its tenth anniversary at the Focal Meeting in Tokyo. Papers and session submissions are encouraged that aim to synthesize knowledge worldwide over the last decade and anticipate future research trends and directions. Scholarly papers and symposia with that goal in mind will be featured at the 2019 meeting.

Who Should Submit?

Scholars and advanced graduate students worldwide whose research extends beyond a single-country site are encouraged to submit to the WERA Focal Meeting. Papers may be submitted to be presented at paper sessions or poster sessions. Scholars wishing to organize symposia that feature research paper presentations from multiple countries or parts of the world are also encouraged to submit.

Scope of the Focal Meeting

The scope of the Focal Meeting is wide in its reach to include studies across the life span from early learning to workforce and adult education and that take place in formal and informal contexts of education and learning.

The emphasis of the Focal Meeting is on papers, posters, and symposia with a lens that is worldwide in perspective. Otherwise there is no restriction on the education research topics appropriate for consideration, although priority will be given to submissions that focus on research and findings addressed to significant trends, issues, and challenges worldwide.

Please follow the link to submit a paper submission. Paper Submission: https://www.conftool.org/wera2019/index.php?page=submissions&y=500.

Symposium Submissions: A symposium provides opportunities, not afforded by a single paper, to examine a specific education research problem or topic through an international, comparative, or worldwide lens and to bring to bear diverse perspectives, intensive discussion, or a wide range of expertise. Symposium abstracts are a maximum of 250 words. Submissions also include 150-word summaries for each presentation/paper in a symposium, and allow for up to ten references for each presentation. References cited in the summaries must be set forth in the reference list. Symposium proposals are submitted by an organizer who may or may not be a chair, presenter, or discussant. A WERA symposium can include a minimum of three and maximum of five participants in addition to the chair and discussant. Participants include all presenters and any discussants.

Please follow the link to submit a symposium submission. Symposium Submission: https://www.conftool.org/wera2019/index.php?page=submissions&y=500.

Poster Submissions: Poster sessions are visual displays of research findings, which provide the presenter with an opportunity for discussion of the research and findings. Submissions for poster sessions parallel the requirements for paper submissions, including a summary of up to 750 words that additionally addresses any unique elements particularly appropriate for a poster. Poster summaries are a maximum of 750 words on: a.) “Proposal Information/Research/Questions and Theoretical Approach” (350 words); b.) “Methods” (150 words); and c.) “Conclusion & Findings, Scientific Significance” (250 words) in addition to the poster title, information on the authors, and so forth. Up to ten references may be included in the summary, and must be set forth in the reference list. Also, a 250-word abstract suitable for publication must be included. Work with initial findings or in early stages of development and studies that are best conveyed with data analytic methods or pictorial or hands-on displays might be especially appropriate for a poster.

Foreword

National Cancer Institutes


A few words from DCCPS Training Director Rick Moser

It’s an exciting time in cancer research, given the amount of attention and associated funding currently being put into the area. Programs like the Cancer MoonshotSM and the Precision Medicine Initiative, which includes the NIH-funded All of Us program, spur research and create optimism about making inroads in reducing cancer morbidity and mortality. These initiatives address multiple determinants of cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment, including genetic, biological, and, most important for our work here, behavioral factors, such as lifestyle, environmental, and policy effects. Given that approximately 50% of all cancer cases could be prevented by eliminating risky behavioral factors like smoking, sedentary lifestyles, and poor nutrition, it’s more important than ever to train the next generation of cancer researchers to have expertise in behavioral research.

There are many benefits to joining the Behavioral Research Program (BRP) as a fellow. Our fellows are mentored by experts in cancer research; meet and network with other NCI and NIH fellows and staff; attend and present at scientific conferences, workshops, and symposia; learn about the grants process; and receive training in their areas of cancer-related behavioral interest. Fellows perform research, complete literature reviews and data analyses, give presentations, write manuscripts, and contribute to applied communication and project-management efforts, among other activities. Our program’s interest areas include health communication; cancer-related behaviors such as tobacco use, physical activity, diet/nutrition, sun safety, and alcohol use; and understanding the role of basic psychological processes such as affect and cognition on cancer control.
