1. McGrain, Patrick. "Therapeutic Engagement in a Prison-Based Drug Treatment Therapeutic Community: The Effects of Inmate Characteristics" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Criminology (ASC), Los Angeles Convention Center, Los Angeles, CA, Nov 01, 2006 <Not Available>. 2019-08-20 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: Although the literature on prison-based drug treatment has attempted to offer correlates of successful rehabilitation, one gap is the failure to examine the effect that inmate characteristics can have on an individual’s therapeutic engagement in a drug-based treatment program. Specifically, there is little explanation of the significance of an inmate’s personality traits and stage of change at the time of entering the TC program. This is a significant omission, as these characteristics can have an impact upon an individual’s level of therapeutic engagement, both at the onset and throughout his tenure in a drug treatment program.

This paper qualitatively examines the individual correlates that enhance or impede therapeutic engagement (the involvement in and commitment to drug treatment) of inmates in a prison-based drug treatment program. 30 inmates at the State Correctional Institution at Chester (PA.) were interviewed to discuss the therapeutic community in which they have taken part. The research question that this paper focuses on is: How do an inmate’s individual characteristics influence his therapeutic engagement?

2. Piascik, Mary. and Bird, Eleanora. "Application of the Immediate Feedback Assessment Technique (IF-AT) for Group Learning in a Therapeutics Course" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resort, Lake Buena Vista, Florida, Jul 14, 2007 <Not Available>. 2019-08-20 <>
Publication Type: Abstract
Abstract: Objectives/intent:
• Implement an active, problem solving method for teaching large groups of students with limited resources.
• Improve student learning by utilizing immediate, corrective feedback.
Methods/process: 130 students are placed into 24 groups of 5-6 students. Students prepare for the exercise by reading assignments and/or lectures. During the class hour, students receive a patient case that applies information learned during their advance preparation. Students individually answer a series of multiple choice questions based on the case. Students then work as a group to repeat the exercise by discussing the questions and coming to consensus on the correct response. Answers are recorded on the IF-AT form, a scratch off version of the scantron answer sheet. A star indicates the correct answer. If incorrect, the student group can choose a second or third choice for partial credit. Each student receives the grade achieved by the group activity.
Results/outcomes: Application of the IF-AT improved student attendance. Faculty who used the technique reported that groups were fully engaged in the process. Data from student surveys will be analyzed prior to the July meeting.
Implications: Application of the IF-AT process permits one instructor to conduct group learning in a large class with little or no assistance. Students are fully engaged in problem solving with immediate feedback on their performance. The IF-AT is well-suited to progressive activities where students need to discern the correct information before proceeding to the next step. This process can be used in a variety of disciplines within the pharmaceutical sciences.

3. McKim, Allison. "Getting Gut-Level: Punishment, Gender, and Therapeutic Governance" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, Montreal Convention Center, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Aug 10, 2006 Online <PDF>. 2019-08-20 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: Using ethnographic data gathered at a residential program providing mandated drug treatment to women, this paper analyses how therapeutic governance is gendered through practices that encourage introspection. This program prioritizes introspection and intensive therapy over the managerial concerns of courts and in place of normalizing gender roles. This is because the program attributes criminal and addictive behaviors to women’s inadequate self-understanding and lack of emotional autonomy from personal relationships. Mandated drug treatment is not simply a means of managing risky but self-governing individuals as predicted by scholars of the new penology. Neither it is a way of pushing women toward domesticity or low-paying employment as feminist criminologists suggest. Gendered notions of women’s fragile and disordered selves lead program staff to employ therapeutic governing strategies rather than managerial or economic strategies. They prioritize introspective work on the self over and above familial obligations and paid work.

Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: This essay proposes that students of discourse (and interested others) record and transcribe talk-in-interaction in which they themselves are participants, with a view to accomplishing a therapeutic critique of the self.
After providing an outline of theory and practice informing discourse analysis (especially Conversation Analysis), the author reviews the therapeutic use of this methodology, discusses the externalization of the speaker’s putative interior through the inspection of their own objectified talk-in-interaction, explains how the speaker-analyst’s self-perception may be altered by this practice, and enumerates the benefits of transcribing one’s own talk-in-interaction.

5. Doan, Carrie. "Incest in Film: Evasions, Postponements, and the Therapeutic Response" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the The Law and Society, J.W. Marriott Resort, Las Vegas, NV, <Not Available>. 2019-08-20 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: The paper I would like to present will critically examine constructions of childhood sexual abuse, particularly incest, in contemporary film and television movies and the implications of these constructions for legal and social responses to child sexual abuse. I will ask why incest is portrayed differently and more or less frequently in different popular media and to what extent pop cultural representations of incest are capable of encouraging political resistance to the social structures and relationships that enable child sexual abuse. I will argue that particular kinds of media encourage therapeutic responses to incest, whereas others engender cultural avoidance of the issue altogether. Ultimately, I will argue, few representations of incest in pop culture explore the relationships between gender, power, and family that contextualize abuse, although the appearance of nascent themes of incest in pop culture suggests a cultural anxiety and potentially politicizing recognition of the problem. Movies that will be discussed (and parts of which will be viewed in my presentation) include Eve’s Bayou, The Sweet Hereafter, The War Zone, Monster, Girl Interrupted, and Something about Amelia.
