Abstract: Abstract


Intelligence For Dummies


If we view acts of terrorism as both criminal and political it is only natural then that the inclusion of intelligence as a course in a criminal justice degree program.

The argument will address the types of subject matter inclusion and how it relates to being a critical ingredient in today’s changing environment for criminal justice professionals.

Additionally, it will discuss the manner in which other disciplines are included and how the lines of delineation have become blurred.

Abstract: This investigation explores the ways partners in relationship with a depressed individual interpret the depressive behavior and how this interpretation is related to their types of attempts to control depression and to relationship satisfaction and cohesiveness. Within the context of Inconsistent Nurturing as Control theory (Le Poire, 1994) and attribution for control within the relationship (internal or external), the current investigation describes the paradoxical nature of the power structure in the romantic relationship with a depressed individual, and how the power structure limits the types of control strategies the non-depressed partner can use. Couples including one depressed individual (N=148 individuals) are interviewed and compared to a control group of non-depressed couples (N =68 individuals). Results indicate that individuals with higher external attribution for control feel their partner’s behavior is unpredictable and not influenced by what they say or use fewer strategies to curtail depression and instead use more strategies that reinforce depression and punish alternative behavior. In couples including one depressed individual, poorer mental health and internal attribution for control is associated with more cohesiveness but less relational satisfaction. Greater mental health and external attribution in couples including one depressed individual predicts less cohesiveness but more relational satisfaction. This pattern does not hold for control group couples, who reported more cohesiveness and relational satisfaction as they reported more internal attribution for control; control group couples reported less cohesiveness and relational satisfaction as they reported more external attribution for control. Implications for control dynamics and communication strategies are discussed.

Abstract: The underrepresentation of women in the superintendent’s position is a problem needing attention from the educational leadership community. Future school leaders need to know that leadership is inclusive of all voices and perspectives from their training programs to their schoolhouses. Based on results of research with women superintendents reported in this paper and related literature, the researcher make a strong call for educational leadership professors to include voices of women leaders when designing coursework in educational leadership preparation programs.

Abstract: The present study examined how mock-juries and jurors evaluate lesser-included homicide charges using 1) unanimity required verdict forms (must decide higher charges before lower charges) vs. 2) unanimity not required verdict forms (juries can consider all charges). We also included a radical verdict form (“step-up”) that asked juries to evaluate lower charges before evaluating higher charges. For a second-degree murder case, results indicated that unanimity jurors and “step-up” jurors were more punitive (found more guilt) than non-unanimity jurors. For a manslaughter case, unanimity jurors were more punitive than non-unanimity and step-up jurors. However, deliberations inhibited these differences.

Abstract: The discussion of “new risks” in social policy arena started to gain attention from the late 1990s. It is commonly argued that new risks are provoked by deindustrialization and/or globalization and a convergence theory on new risk is suggested that it is characterized to be more concentrated on the young, women and low skilled.
This study commences its inquiry with a scientific conceptualization of social risk with an ambitious attempt to critically rethink the argument of new risk or new crisis. A reification of the concept is followed by an empirical investigation on the question of whether there is a new risk and is there a convergence in the characteristics of new risk as the literature suggests. A lack of comparative empirical evidence of new risks in the existing literature calls for an investigation of advanced economies both from East and the West. 18 countries are selected in order to ground a comparative perspective in understanding the new risk and they are comparatively analyzed using the Fuzzy-set Qualitative Analysis method (fs/QCA) to measure the changes in degree. In sum, this chapter aims to answer two questions: 1) What is new risk? and 2) How do the characteristic of risks differ in different post-industrial countries? This study will contribute to the new risk discussion not only theoretically and empirically but also methodologically.
