Abstract

This study tested the hypothesis that cooperative breeding facilitates the emergence of prosocial behavior by presenting cottontop tamarins (Saguinus oedipus) with the option to provide food rewards to pair-bonded mates. In Experiment 1, tamarins could provide rewards to mates at no additional cost while obtaining rewards for themselves. Contrary to the hypothesis, tamarins did not demonstrate a preference to donate rewards, behaving similar to chimpanzees in previous studies. In Experiment 2, the authors eliminated rewards for the donor for a stricter test of prosocial behavior, while reducing separation distress and food preoccupation. Again, the authors found no evidence for a donation preference. Furthermore, tamarins were significantly less likely to deliver rewards to mates when the mate displayed interest in the reward. The results of this study contrast with those recently reported for cooperatively breeding common marmosets, and indicate that prosocial preferences in a food donation task do not emerge in all cooperative breeders. In previous studies, cottontop tamarins have cooperated and reciprocated to obtain food rewards; the current findings sharpen understanding of the boundaries of cottontop tamarins? food-provisioning behavior.

Abstract

From Psychoanalytic Narrative to Empirical Single Case Research revivifies the experimental potential of psychoanalysis by focusing a number of structured research methods on a single case study: Amalia X. Drs. Kächele, Schachter, and Thomä, in tandem with the Ulm Psychoanalytic Process Research Study Group, bring their formidable tools and knowledge to bear on this well-documented case history. After providing an intensive review of the problematic aspects of clinical psychoanalytic research and a review of the case study itself, the subsequent chapters--utilizing clinical and linguistic models, respectively--deconstruct Amalia's psychopathology along a variety of methodological axes in an effort not only to uncover the roots of her presenting symptoms, but also to reify and validate psychoanalytic empiricism in general.

Abstract

It was the purpose of this study to assess the validity of the stages-of-change model with respect to intimate partner violence (IPV) offenders. To this end, the University of Rhode Island Change Assessment (URICA) scale was administered to 210 participants in a 26-week, court-ordered batterer treatment program. As is customary with the use of this scale, respondents' scores on the four scales of this measure (precontemplation, contemplation, action, and maintenance) were subjected to a cluster analysis in order to derive clusters of individuals who differed with respect to their responses. It should be noted that cluster analysis of the URICA does not tend to result in clusters of individuals characterized by an elevation on only one scale (suggesting a primary stage of change) but instead leads to different overall profiles on these scales. The validity of this cluster solution was then assessed by testing the differences between clusters on relevant criterion variables (cf. Aldenderfer & Blashfield, 1984). It was hypothesized that individuals with a profile suggesting an earlier stage of change would report having perpetrated less violence against their partners (thus denying the significance of their behavior), although their partners would report no difference in their behavior as compared to the partners of batterers in a later stage of change. Second, it was hypothesized that those individuals characterized by an earlier stage of change would report experiencing less distress (anxiety, depression, and alcohol abuse) as well as fewer problems with anger. Finally, it was hypothesized that individuals in an earlier stage of change would exhibit less change over the course of treatment. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2009 APA, all rights reserved)

Abstract

Coaching is a professional practice in human performance improvement. The goal of coaching is to assist individuals in determining global and domain-specific-satisfaction levels at a point in time, and then develop skills and insight to achieve greater satisfaction in both global and domain satisfaction. One area lacking in research is how coaching an individual positively or negatively impacts that individual's immediate support system such as family and friends. The purpose of this study was to explore and describe the impact of individual coaching on immediate support systems through a phenomenology study. A literature review of family systems theory, life satisfaction, and coaching practices shows how family systems can be affected through life satisfaction coaching. The results of this study indicated that impact on immediate support system members occurred in three theme areas; positive changes in attitudes, positive changes to financial satisfaction, and positive changes in communication. Future research recommendations are to replicate this study with a larger sample, replicate this study with a longer coaching program, complete a longitudinal study on continued impact of coaching, design a family coaching model that addresses possible coaching impacts, and replicate this study with diverse groups of people to determine other impact and results.

Abstract

Reviews the book, Child abuse and neglect by Monica L. McCoy and Stefanie M. Keen (see record 2008-16591-000). In this book, the authors make quite clear the book?s intention: ?Our purpose in writing this book was to create a textbook that was appropriate for an undergraduate course in child abuse and neglect? (p. xv). Reading this book can certainly make one quite depressed. But that is not a fair verdict on the book itself. We have to realize that the very designation of child abuse and neglect is possible only where there is a dramatic contrast effect. Any country where children can expect as the norm to experience love, nurturance, healthy development, and a rich education and quality of life has the opportunity to respond firmly and constructively to the aberration of a few people hurting and neglecting children. The present text makes a valuable contribution to that opportunity, and students who read it will be in the forefront of such well-informed, vigilant efforts.
