______________________________________________________________________________________________________ Health is an important basic capital for humans to be able to function socially. Without good physical and mental health conditions, humans find it difficult to get happiness in life. Efforts to maintain and improve public health continue to be carried out, both by the government and by the community through health activities and programs. This paper aims to explore the contribution of the HopeFamilyProgram (HFP) and the Madani Brotherhood Program (MBP) in improving public health, as well as the factors that influence it in Kendari City. The research method used is a qualitative method with a case study approach. The focus of this study is the recipients of the FamilyHopeProgram and the Madani Brotherhood Program, where the majority of them are poor families. The results showed that: First, MBP was more effective in improving public health than HFP. This is because the community health improvement program carried out by the community is easier to implement and more sustainable in nature. Second, the factors that influence the success and failure in the implementation of the program in Kendari City are: first, the legal rules underlying the program; second, human resource factors, third, funding support factors; and finally is a factor of the values underlying the implementation of the program.
13. No narcotics at any time will be allowed in the house and certain non-narcotics that will be examined on a case-by-case basis. Drugs such as, but not limited to: Seroquel, Klonopin, Depakote, (Clonazepam), Neurontin, (Gabapentin), Tramadol, (Ultram), Percocet, Benadryl, Ambien (sleep aids in general), and “anxiety” drugs (Xanax and the like) will most likely not be allowed, as we have found them to have troubling side-effects and addictive characteristics. If a medication causes you to fail a drug test you may not take them in our program. If you are primarily on psychotic medications HRH may not be the best choice for your living
Generalized estimating equations were used to determine change in patterns of General Self Efficacy Scale, Non Death Revised Grief Experience Inventory, Herth Hope Index and SF-12v2 Physical and Mental health scores over time (Day 7, 14 and 3, 6, and 12 months) compared to baseline. The advantage of utilizing general estimating equations was that it effectively increases the sample size (increasing power) and estimated more robust standard errors by taking into account the repeated measures and adjusting for covariates . Generalized estimating equa- tions can be used with non-normally distributed data and with sample sizes of 20 . Further when missing data are random, all subjects can be retained in the analysis without imputation of missing data . As dosage of the intervention was determined by the number of journal en- tries, it was a covariate in all of the analyses.
This was a quasi-experimental two-group (study and control) two-step study conducted on 38 diabetic patients in 2012. Study population included all diabetic patients having a medical record and referring to Sedigheh Tahereh Research and Treatment Center in Isfahan, Iran. Inclusion criteria were the interest to attend the study and Muslim diabetic patients aged 30-50 years residing in Isfahan, who could express their experiences and memories. On the other hand, the subjects were excluded in case of attending other psychotherapy programs during the study, taking psychotic medications, being involved in acute depression, and finally, in the event of death of any of their immediate relatives. Out of 250 patients’ medical files studied, 38 diabetic patients who met the inclusion criteria were selected through random convenient sampling. After getting their written informed consent, they were randomly assigned to two groups of study and control. Data collection tool was a two-section questionnaire. The first section was about personal characteristics including age, sex, marital status, education level, length of diabetes, types of complications due to diabetes, and types of diabetes medication taken or insulin. The second section included Herth Hope Index (HHI) containing 12 questions based on a 4-point Likert scale scored as score 1 (absolutely disagree), 2 (disagree), 3 (agree), and 4 (absolutely agree). Questions 3 and 6 were scored inversely. HHI scores in the range 12-48 and higher scores show a better hopefulness status. Scores 12-24 show low level of hope (hopelessness), 25-32 indicate moderate level of hope, and 37-48 indicate high level of hope. Herth confirmed the validity of this index through Cronbach’s alpha (0.97) and by test–re-test and calculation of correlation coefficient of 0.91. In Iran, after extraction and translation of Herth’s questionnaire, Pourghaznein used both the above-mentioned methods to calculate test validity based on Cronbach’s alpha of 0.76 and Pearson correlation coefficient of 0.84. He also confirmed the reliability of the tool through some expert psychologists.  The
The purpose of the HPG program is for the Grantor to provide loans, grants, interest reduction payments or other assistance to very low and low income homeowners, owners of single or multiple units rental properties or for owners (as occupants) of consumer cooperative housing projects for the cost of repairs and rehabilitation, to remove or correct health and safety hazards, to comply with applicable development standards or codes, or to make needed repairs to improve living
The likely cause of the slight increase in hope score of the control group is that they were hospitalized and received necessary medical and therapeutic care while their appointments were conducted freely and without any planning. Also, the significant increase in hope score of intervention group could be due to the chance we gave them to decide on the first- degree relative that is more comfortable with along with receiving necessary therapeutic treatments. The support from these people help recovery and returning to the family.
The Program adopts a contemporary, multi-sectoral perspective on rurality, which takes into account the heterogeneity of rural territories and future chal- lenges that agriculture, as a whole, faces. The program also reaffirms the strategic importance of FF, in terms of its contribution to food and nutrition security, environmental sustainability in the hemisphere, and rural retention. The primary duty of the Program is to identify and foster innovative solutions to address the main issues facing rural territories and FF in IICA’s member countries, primarily through knowledge management in the form of high-qual- ity technical cooperation services.

Service providers reported high levels of satisfaction with the discretion in using the funds as it allowed timely and flexible use. A small number of service providers have used the brokerage funds to purchase respite care, which includes after school and holiday care, and therapeutic services for families where there are long waiting lists for such services especially in rural areas. One Aboriginal IFS service suggested that brokerage funds could be used for community engagement activities as having effective community links was an important part of the program. One service provider said that it is important to get the funds at the beginning of the year so that they can be used as required.
At the end of 2017, Krissy was admitted to City of Hope to undergo a life saving stem cell transplant. After 10 long years of searching, an unknown prognosis, and the advancement of her disease, she was finally able to accept an unrelated donor’s stem cells and begin on the road to recovery and healing.
The results of Table 4 show that by eliminating the effect of the pre-test variable, the hypothesis of the research based on a significant difference in the variables of marital conflicts and marital disturbance in hope therapy group and the control group. As it is observed in results of the table, the significance level for marital conflicts and marital disturbance scales is smaller than the significance level of 0.025 obtained from the Benfrowny correction (the division of the significance level 0/05 to two dependent variables). As a result, it can be said that with 95% confidence, the components of marital conflict and marital disturbance in the hope therapy group had more reduction than control group. The effectiveness of "practical significance" group for marital conflicts and marital disturbance was 0.81 and 0.33, respectively; that is, for example, 81 percent of the total variance or individual differences in the marital conflicts variable of couple group were related to the effect of group differences. In addition, high power of the statistical test in this study suggests that with a high probability, the null hypothesis is completely rejected.
Functionalist sociologists such as Emile Durkheim have viewed educational systems in society as having the purpose to pass on societal norms, values, and structure and to foster active civic participation (Sadovnik, 2011). Political philosophers as early as Aristotle (384-322 B.C.E.) noted the importance of an educated electorate to the integrity and maintenance of a democratic system of government. The act of educating a student, when done effectively, is an individualized activity that depends on relationships and reciprocity between the educator and student. Over time, educational sociologists have broadened the analysis of education to include the family and the larger context within which it exists (Sadovnik, 2011). When the student-educator relationship is extended to purposefully include the family and its context—as is the case in a comprehensive family literacy program—it is important to include qualitative data analysis to help capture the essence of these interactions. Participants understand family literacy to include the shared experience and the creation of community (Padak et al., 2002); yet national discussions have focused on test scores for adults and children. The progression of democratic society in the United States is inextricably linked to the ability of educators to effectively educate individual students but it has become difficult to connect experiences in education with national conversations about effectiveness. In terms of comprehensive family literacy programs and their multifaceted impacts this may be due to a limited understanding of the phenomenon itself.
GRIEVANCE AND DISMISSAL POLICIES AND PROCEDURES FOR GRADUATE STUDENTS
Grievance Policies and Procedures
Any grievance or appeal process begins at the level of the individuals immediately involved: with another student, if there is a concern about that person; the associated instructor, if an individual course is at issue; with the Program Director of the Couple and Family Therapy (CFT) Program, if a CFT policy is involved; with the clinical supervisor, if a clinical matter is involved, with the Graduate Programs Director, if an HDFS graduate program policy is involved; with the Department Chair, if a departmental policy is involved, etc. Students may wish to consult with the MSU Ombudsman ( email@example.com ) regarding their rights and responsibilities. Where satisfactory resolution has not been achieved at one level, the grievance or appeal of a decision can be taken to the next appropriate level of administrative authority. Thus, certain matters proceed from the CFT Program Director to the HDFS Graduate Program Director to the Associate Dean for Graduate Studies in the College of Social Science (Associate Dean) and then to the Dean of the College of Social Science. If the matter is not satisfactorily resolved within the College, it would be referred to the Graduate Dean, the Provost, or the Vice-President for
questionnaire consisted of 100 questions; 69 Likert scale questions, 14 fill-in-the-blank questions, 16 check-from-a-list questions, and 1 open-ended question. Three different types of Likert scales were used in the FPIQ. The first was an agreement scale with six possible ratings (i.e., “strongly agree,” “somewhat agree,” “neither agree nor disagree,” “somewhat disagree,” “strongly disagree,” and “not applicable.” The second type was a scale that was used alongside the agreement scale and asked parents to rate the importance of the item that was just rated, ranging from 1 (“unimportant”) to 5 (“very important”). For example, one question states “My knowledge of autism has increased as a result of the IBI program” and respondents were asked to indicate their level of agreement with this statement, and also how important the area was to them. The third type of Likert scale had participants rate statements concerning the quantity of IBI. For example, respondents were asked to rate the number of hours their child was receiving per week as “too much,” “just right,” or “not enough.” All scales were labeled with words (e.g., “strongly agree”), instead of numbers, to help clarify the meanings of scale points for respondents (Weisberg, 1996). The remaining questions required selections from a list (e.g., “What other services was your child receiving during IBI?”) and parents checked all that apply from a supplied list of potential services. Space was available to allow respondents to provide more details or additional information (e.g., “Were there areas within your child’s IBI program that you feel were not adequately addressed?”).
student-led initiative (ie, a resident research project). That said, we recognize that our data consist of responses from a single, albeit diverse, FM residency program, and thus the results cannot necessarily be generalized to other resi- dents across the country. Further, it is unknown what pro- portion of residents did not complete the survey because they did not self-identify with or appreciate the importance of the topic, which could have skewed the final results. However, there were residents who completed the sur- vey who rated leadership ideals on the negative end of the spectrum, thus capturing some of this mentality.
The words of the subjects were utilized as much as pos- sible in the themes for the open ended questions in the written survey (see Table 2 for themes and data exam- ples). Five themes emerged in the subjects’ responses to the question regarding the biggest changes they experi- enced in caring for their family member: a) being con- sumed by responsibility, b) negotiating care for their caree, c) feeling isolated, d) decreases in their own phy- sical and mental health and e) personal growth towards becoming a better person. Themes from the question regarding how did they dealt with the changes were: 1) taking one day at a time, 2) actively seeking knowledge and assistance, 3) connecting with other family members and friends, 4) learning to rely on one-self and 5) very negative emotions which resulted in anger, and crying.
