Abstract: Even if an individual acts alone to manage a stressor, his/her actions have consequences on others; therefore, a contextual perspective of coping is appropriate (Dunkel-Schetter et al., 1987; Folkman & Lazarus, 1988; Lazarus, 2000). In the context of divorce, parent-child divorce related disclosures influence how family members cope with the in that particular stressful event (Coyne & Gottlieb; Golish, 2003). Disclosure as communicative coping strategy may have both beneficial and deleterious effects on the child, parent, and their relationship. This paper will offer an explication of disclosure as a communicative coping strategy, then examine disclosure through three theoretical perspectives: human development, social cognitions, and information regulation.

"Explicating jealousy: Utilizing four theoretical perspectives to provide suggestions for future communication research" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the NCA 93rd Annual Convention, TBA, Chicago, IL, Nov 15, 2007 Online <PDF>. 2019-09-18 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p191278_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: “Jealousy” is a label that often carries a negative connotation in western culture (Buunk, 1982). In fact, jealousy may be classified as “being upset” to evade this negative attachment. Because jealousy carries different meanings for people, researchers may have difficulty conceptualizing the phenomenon, and for laypeople, in identifying jealousy. Understanding the concept is imperative because most people experience jealousy in their life. The paper explicates and applies four theoretical lenses to jealousy.

Abstract: This article demonstrates that a famous task found in probability research is multivalent (i.e., has many interpretations). More specifically, the multivalence of the sequence, likelihood, experiment, and question elements will be the main focus of this investigation. Further, this article demonstrates that certain individuals answer the famous task according to an interpretation not in accord with researchers’ intended interpretation of the task. Utilization of a novel theoretical framework, the Task Interpretation Framework (TIF), will aid in investigating unintended interpretations of the task.

"Perceived Reality in Media Messages: An Explication of Its Dimensional Structure" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Suntec Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Centre, Suntec City, Singapore, Jun 21, 2010 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2019-09-18 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p403742_index.html>

Abstract: A critical review of theoretical and empirical literature on perceived reality reveals that empirical studies lag behind theory in treating perceived reality as a multidimensional construct. This could be explained by profusion of theoretical dimensions; so far 24 of them have been named. In this paper a more parsimonious structure is synthesized that contains six dimensions: magic window, typicality, identity, utility, perceptual fidelity, and virtual experience. Research on perceived reality in media violence and aggression literature is reviewed. This example is used to demonstrate that although media effect studies often measure perceived reality, the answer to the question of whether perceived reality has an effect on attitudes or behavior is still inconclusive due to improper conceptualization of perceived reality as a unidimensional intervening variable. Recommendations for future research include specifying, measuring, and analyzing different dimensions of perceived reality separately; they can then be treated as either intervening or contingent variables.

Abstract: Using ANES 2000 national data, this study attempts to explicate mechanisms of the relationship between political communication behaviors (i.e., news exposure and political discussion) and the level of political participation by identifying a set of mediators within the framework of an Orientation-Stimulus-Reasoning-Orientation-Response (O-S-R-O-R). Reviewing literature suggests four potential mediators of the relationship, such as political knowledge, attitude dispersion and internal and external political efficacy. Results from structural equation modeling analysis indicate these four variables are significant mediators between political communication and political engagement. Findings from this study are expected to contribute to better understanding how news media use and political discussion facilitate political engagement. Implications of findings, limitations of this piece and suggestions for future research are all discussed.
