    Qualitative Research: Philosophy, Technique & Interpretation

    in Education

    Qualitative research explores the meaning people attach to their experience and how they understand their world (Merriam, 2009). Through qualitative methods, researchers gain knowledge that would otherwise be unavailable, thus expanding our understanding of the world around us. This rich and complex approach to research raises many questions and is the source of scholarly discussion and debate about philosophy, technique, and interpretation. Join Dr. Paula Dawidowicz and me to discuss qualitative research and address questions from doctoral students in qualitative research.

    The Gospel Is God's Qualitative "New Thing" In History

    in Spirituality

    This episode of Pneumatikos explores the radical message of the Gospel as God's powerful undertaking in history.  The Gospel is provocative and compelling. It's ethos is inherently built upon decisive action. One must decide as to whether he or she will hear the Gospel with a view to obeying its message or reject its claims and incur the consequences thereof.  The Gospel is God's answer to the greatest needs of the human heart.    

  • Dying with Dignity: Starting the Conversation to Close the Healthcare Gap

    in Health

    What constitutes a ‘good death’? How and where are people dying? Are the needs of the dying being met? How can we advocate for a “good death”? Considering we are all going to die and lose loved ones at some point in time in our journey through life, these are all important questions to explore. Recently there has been an increased emphasis on the importance of addressing healthcare disparities in end of life care. This increased emphasis is mostly as a result of a bountiful of research on how dying patients are invisible in many acute healthcare settings in the United States and are victims of healthcare disparities. That is, certain groups receive lower quality of care than others. Worse than being a dying patient, is being a dying patient who is perceived by medical personnel as belonging to a different race, culture or ethnicity. These biases that lead to disparate treatment are often present at a subconscious level.

    Dr. Jacqueline N. Font-Guzmán is associate professor at the Werner Institute at Creighton University. She is a certified mediator and arbitrator by the Puerto Rico Supreme Court.  She is a Fulbright Scholar who has actively participated in the field of conflict studies through national and international conferences and workshops, and has conducted a wide variety of trainings and seminars in the field. 

    Dr. Font-Guzmán conducts qualitative research with a focus on the fields of healthcare disparities, law, and conflict engagement. Specifically, how people construct meaning at critical points in their lives about their identity (e.g., professional and community), reflective learning/practice, and end of life to explore the manners in which meaning-making leads them to productively engage with conflict. She also explores how marginalized individuals create alternate stories and counter-narratives to address institutional injustices.

In this episode, Joe and Angel interview Dr. Glenn Fleisig, Research Director for American Sports Medicine Institute (ASMI).

    "The Worth & Value Swap In Relationships-Pt 1-The Settlement"

    in Lifestyle

    There's no question that today's relationships march to the beat of a different drum. Technology, the liberation of women, the overdevelopment of our youth and the lax operations of mainstream media have sent the message that a "hook-up" is a must-have, but the respect, communication, and equality of relationships are eliminated from the equation. With no real qualitative standards to meet, the goal is now to just have a companion to claim to the world or never to get caught alone. This leads to a race for a companion that you keep for life at any costs...even if you have to compromise your true beliefs, mannerisms, character, individuality, and even worse..your happiness. For Black America, much more of our precious human commodities are compromised and/or traded in as we become involved with twisted relationships to "fit in" or "feel priviliged". Join in tonight for Part One...as we focus on settling for less in relationships just to avoid loneliness or being the outcast. Call 347-327-9967 at 10:30 pm EST.

    Dyslexia Screening: Essential Concepts for Schools and Parents

    in Education

    Dyslexia Screening: Essential Concepts for Schools & Parents - Dr. Richard Selnick

    Dyslexia Screening: Essential Concepts for Schools & Parents presents an overview of the ‘nuts and bolts’ of what goes into a dyslexia screening program for schools. Helpful for parents too this guide presents material in clear, ‘down-to-earth’ terms.

    "Dyslexia Screening: Essential Concepts for Schools & Parents is a perfect compendium that enables educators to take a proactive stance in the early identification and remediation of dyslexia."
    - Steven G. Feifer, D.Ed., ABSNP – 2009 National School Psychologist of the Year

    "Dyslexia Screening:  Essential Concepts for Schools & Parents really helped our district get a handle on dyslexia – what it is, how to detect it and what to do about it, especially as we needed to implement the new state law.”
    - Patricia Moulton, M.S.W. Special Education Coordinator, Brooklawn School District

    "I wanted to let you how much I enjoyed your book. I especially appreciated that you point out the qualitative observations that should take place during assessment that can be so incredibly crucial. For example, using marks to show that a student took a long time to decode a word, even if they decoded it correctly. Your book will be a great resource for teachers/districts who are so reluctant or so nervous to identify struggling students."
    - Kelli Sandman-Hurley, Ed.D.  Dyslexia Training Institute

    sIgNoThEtImEs w Queen Tahiyrah FEATURED LISTEN IN SESSION Dr. Joy Degruy PTSS

    in Motivation

    Tonight as a part of our 90 Day Blackout of Main Stream Media & HIP HOP, we are featuring the lecture by Dr. Joy Degruy called Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome from her book of the same title.

    On her website, Dr. Joy describes PTSS as the following:

    POST TRAUMATIC SLAVE SYNDROME As a result of twelve years of quantitative and qualitative research Dr. DeGruy has developed her theory of Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome, and published her findings in the book Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome - America’s Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing”. The book addresses the residual impacts of generations of slavery and opens up the discussion of how the black community can use the strengths we have gained in the past to heal in the present.

    WHAT IS P.T.S.S.?
    P.T.S.S. is a theory that explains the etiology of many of the adaptive survival behaviors in African American communities throughout the United States and the Diaspora. It is a condition that exists as a consequence of multigenerational oppression of Africans and their descendants resulting from centuries of chattel slavery. A form of slavery which was predicated on the belief that African Americans were inherently/genetically inferior to whites. This was then followed by institutionalized racism which continues to perpetuate injury.

    Thus, resulting in M.A.P.:

    M: Multigenerational trauma together with continued oppression;
    A: Absence of opportunity to heal or access the benefits available in the society; leads to
    P: Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome
