This volume builds understanding of practices in youth and community development that create or build social capital assets at the individual, group, and community levels. The authors explore whether programs contribute to the development of social capital at the individual and community scales, thereby fostering and enhancing positive youth development as well as community development. It includes articles on defining and measuring social capital through instruments designed to document impact and also to engage program participants. The authors then discuss program practices that build social capital in a wide range of youth development settings, from community-based service-learning to 4-H community clubs. Finally, they focus on building social capital in particular contexts, including work in rural communities with the most vulnerable youth. The volume is designed to help practitioners: Refine their dual focus on youth and community development Clarify constructs that help translate the public value of positive youth development to community stakeholders Provide examples of practices that link youth and youth programs more intentionally to the social relationships that knit communities together. This is the 138th volume of New Directions for Youth Development, the Jossey-Bass quarterly report series dedicated to bringing together everyone concerned with helping young people, including scholars, practitioners, and people from different disciplines and professions.

The youth form the biggest category of the population in Uganda. Therefore controlling and protecting their behavior is very essential in the development of the nation. Moreover, protecting the cultures of the nation is also a pride to the nation. Therefore, much as it is important to interact and appreciate the benefits of western culture such as modern technology, modern education, Christianity and modern entertainment among others, the youths need to be guided due to the far reaching effect associated with western culture such high sexual promiscuity that has led to increased HIV infections, disrespect of the elders by the youths, pornography, night discos, theft and the impact of sexual networks via internet. This manuscript through its recommendation offers a guide to the various stakeholders involved in youth protection and human dignity to help redesign their strategies in order to cause a positive impact on the youth behavior and development. This is because the manuscript unveils both the negative and positive effects of western culture and compares it with traditional culture based on secondary and primary data from various stakeholders who form the basis of knowledge

Positive Psychology formulates the foundation of prevention science: the application of scientific methods to the promotion of develop­mental assets and minimization of risk behaviors. The contemporary expansion of positive psychology into diverse settings is promising as this opens new doors for research and intervention. Schools, if judged only by the passed decade as marred by violent tragedies, appear most appropriate for new and innovative intercessions. Martial arts, specifically the traditions of Judo, offer a timeless solution to a timely issue.This work, using a mixed methods approach, empirically demonstrates how martial arts practice positively impacts youth when conducted in the school environment.

The book introduces the theory of Urban Design Management. In conventional urban development and planning activities the stakeholders commonly use positional bargaining. This leads to compromises and loss of value that could be distributed among the stakeholders with the help of a mediating architect consultant. Urban Design Management involves mediation among a range of self-interested stakeholders involved in the production of the built environment. Such mediation can encourage a joint search for mutually beneficial outcomes, or Integrative Development. Integrative Development links stakeholders at diverse scales and in multiple contexts. Integrative Development aims to produce more sustainable solutions by increasing stakeholder satisfaction with the process and content of urban development. Urban Design Management is grounded on integrative negotiation theory and case study research. It provides prescriptive advice for city planners, developers, and other key stakeholders, how to practice Integrative Development.

Using a transformative framework, suspension practices are examined from an ecological context. Current practices in the United States demonstrate that African American and Hispanic/Latino males are disproportionately suspended at higher rates than Caucasian students--often perpetuating a pipeline from school to prison. Guided by a participatory action research model, this study employs a mixed methods design to examine resilience and social connectedness among youth in an alternative to suspension program. Additionally, relationships at the teacher and parent level are explored to offer additional support on the role of alternatives to suspension. Findings suggest that interventions that use a strength-based approach with youth and focus on positive relationships with adults and peers is highly relevant to the perceived success of at-risk youth.

Take a cutting edge look at the civic engagement of young people. Increasingly recognized as an important feature of democratic functioning in communities, it has also become clear that the civic domain is indispensable as a context for understanding human development processes. This volume proposes the following central theses in relation to youth civic development: It is rooted in the realities of young people’s everyday lives. It is collectively constructed. It raises questions about the principles, values, and relationships that bind people together in societies. It raises questions about power and justice. Youth civic development pushes the field to focus on the social issues with which younger generations are grappling and the identities they are constructing—issues that also are shaped by structural inequalities and by the collective actions of youth. The volume builds on themes of agency and assets from the field of positive youth development and points to ways that the critical analysis and engagement of young people in their society can contribute to social change. This is the 134th volume in this series. Its mission is to provide scientific and scholarly presentations on cutting edge issues and concepts in child and adolescent development. Each volume focuses on a specific new direction or research topic and is edited by experts on that topic.

The essential reference for human development theory, updated and reconceptualized The Handbook of Child Psychology and Developmental Science, a four-volume reference, is the field-defining work to which all others are compared. First published in 1946, and now in its Seventh Edition, the Handbook has long been considered the definitive guide to the field of developmental science. Volume 1, Theory and Method, presents a rich mix of classic and contemporary theoretical perspectives, but the dominant views throughout are marked by an emphasis on the dynamic interplay of all facets of the developmental system across the life span, incorporating the range of biological, cognitive, emotional, social, cultural, and ecological levels of analysis. Examples of the theoretical approaches discussed in the volume include those pertinent to human evolution, self regulation, the development of dynamic skills, and positive youth development. The research, methodological, and applied implications of the theoretical models discussed in the volume are presented. Understand the contributions of biology, person, and context to development within the embodied ecological system Discover the relations among individual, the social world, culture, and history that constitute human development Examine the methods of dynamic, developmental research Learn person-oriented methodological approaches to assessing developmental change The scholarship within this volume and, as well, across the four volumes of this edition, illustrate that developmental science is in the midst of a very exciting period. There is a paradigm shift that involves increasingly greater understanding of how to describe, explain, and optimize the course of human life for diverse individuals living within diverse contexts. This Handbook is the definitive reference for educators, policy-makers, researchers, students, and practitioners in human development, psychology, sociology, anthropology, and neuroscience.

The contributors to this volume are academics working directly or indirectly with teaching and learning centers and professional communities, serving in the capacity of educational developer, researcher, or specialist; unit manager or director; or senior administrator. Drawing on survey and interview data, individual experience or perspective, and familiarity with the educational literature, they offer a context to understand and appreciate how the field of educational development, developer practice, and individual pathways have evolved, further highlighting what territory remains to be explored and uncovered. Over the last fifty years, educational development has evolved from an informal set of instructional improvement activities championed by individuals to a scholarly field of study and practice that aims to advance teaching and learning at the individual, institutional and (more recently) sector levels. During this time, educational development work has moved from the fringes to the mainstream of the higher education landscape, bringing to the community a diverse group of dedicated academic professionals. This volume draws on their experience and insight to provide an invaluable guide to future challenges and issues. This is the 122nd volume of the Jossey-Bass higher education quarterly report series New Directions for Teaching and Learning, which offers a comprehensive range of ideas and techniques for improving college teaching based on the experience of seasoned instructors and the latest findings of educational and psychological researchers.

This volume brings together the findings from separate studies of community-based and school-based mentoring to unpack the common response to the question of what makes youth mentoring work. A debate that was alive in 2002, when the first New Directions for Youth Development volume on mentoring, edited by Jean Rhodes, was published, centers on whether goal-oriented or relationship-focused interactions (conversations and activities) prove to be more essential for effective youth mentoring. The consensus appeared then to be that the mentoring context defined the answer: in workplace mentoring with teens, an instrumental relationship was deemed essential and resulted in larger impacts, while in the community setting, the developmental relationship was the key ingredient of change. Recent large-scale studies of school-based mentoring have raised this question once again and suggest that understanding how developmental and instrumental relationship styles manifest through goal-directed and relational interactions is essential to effective practice. Because the contexts in which youth mentoring occurs (in the community, in school during the day, or in a structured program after school) affect what happens in the mentor-mentee pair, our goal was to bring together a diverse group of researchers to describe the focus, purpose, and authorship of the mentoring interactions that happen in these contexts in order to help mentors and program staff better understand how youth mentoring relationships can be effective. This is the 126th issue of New Directions for Youth Development the Jossey-Bass quarterly report series dedicated to bringing together everyone concerned with helping young people, including scholars, practitioners, and people from different disciplines and professions. The result is a unique resource presenting thoughtful, multi-faceted approaches to helping our youth develop into responsible, stable, well-rounded citizens.

The notion of culturally relevant leadership learning builds upon the ideas of developing leader identity and leadership capacity of diverse students. Focusing on four areas of leadership learning: education, training, development, and engagement, this volume presents a model of culturally relevant leadership learning in order to develop all student leaders. It proposes infusing the leadership development process with an understanding of how systemic oppression influences educational contexts and with an engagement in and across cultural differences. Our contexts and differences influence knowledge of self, others, cultural contexts and systems, and ultimately students’ knowledge and enactment of leadership.To this end, culturally relevant leadership development programs equip all students with the knowledge and skills to navigate diverse settings and lead culturally diverse groups and teams. Transforming the framework for how leadership programs are designed will result in contextually relevant leadership development programs and an increase in the breadth and depth of a diverse leadership cadre for our society. The Jossey-Bass quarterly report series New Directions for Student Leadership explores leadership concepts and pedagogical topics of interest to high school and college leadership educators. Issues are grounded in scholarship and feature practical applications and best practices in youth and adult leadership education.

Despite 90% of HIV prevention programs targeting the youth, VCT is not taken by all. The rate of HIV VCT among the youth is persistently low with studies showing that only a small proportion of youth had undergone VCT in Kenya (KDHS, 2003;Adam and Mutungi,2007; LVCT, 2007). Although various studies showed that there is high level of awareness among the youth with majority acknowledging the importance of VCT, there was need to investigate the probable reasons for low uptake of VCT amongst university students. This study aimed at determining the factors associated with the uptake of the service at MKU was paramount to informing ways of improving the reach and quality of VCT services among the University going students.

The rapidly increasing demand of libraries of small molecules for high-throughput screening (HTS) for drug discovery has posed major challenges to the existing synthetic methodologies. In order to produce molecules with high novelty of structures, it is important to identify the main scaffold with drug-like characters and to synthesize a large number of potentially druggable derivatives, based on that scaffold. This book comprises of two parts. Part A describes discovery of new antioxidants of natural and synthetic origin. Screening of several thousand compounds of diverse structures resulted in the identification of several novel compounds with potent antioxidant potential. Part B of this book deals with the development of novel methods to generate the small molecular libraries of sultams (Cyclic sulfonamides). Development of new facile pathways towards skeletally diverse benzofused sultams through Sonogashira–Pauson–Khand and C-arylation pathway towards tricyclic sultams is described. The main focus of this manuscript has been to develop synthetic strategies and to evaluate the antioxidant potential of diverse compounds.

The new millennium has seen an increasing demand to prepare the next generation to lead in the new global community. As a result, international learning opportunities have a more vital role in developing leaders for tomorrow. International education fosters cross-cultural understanding, leadership skills and a socially and globally conscious attitude. How can educators maximize these learning outcomes and support further skill development once the exchange or abroad program has ended? This study more closely examines the impact of international education on youth leadership development and youth engagement in community service. This action research was done to assist an international youth organization in developing sustainable community service programs to actively engage youth in social action. The findings and recommendations offer international education programs and youth organizations strategies and best practices to support youth leadership development through service learning, an approach to social action, to support and enhance intercultural learning experiences.

Authors: Lesego Shibambo, Odily Díaz, Kat Wood, Thiago Nieman Ambrósio, Cameron Batkin, and Phil StarrFor many, leadership development is an unrealized dream in youth ministry. We hope for a youth ministry team made up of and led by the youth of our church, and yet it is often easier and faster to just do things on our own. While it might be simpler in the short term, we rob the church of so many gifts when we fail to help our youth see how their talents and skills are gifts of God to the church. Engaging Youth In Leadership Development will help us see our youth as leaders — gifted by God and called to serve God. It will help us move beyond doing ministry for youth and embrace doing ministry with youth.The third book in this three-book series will help you reimagine what youth ministry can look like when youth are actively engaged in leadership development.

Rosa Rosnati Adoptees' Ethnic Identity Within Family and Social Contexts. New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, Number 150

2227.47 руб.
This special issue addresses the construction of ethnic identity among international transracial adoptees, which typically involve the placement of Black, Asian, Hispanic, or Multiracial children with White parents. International transracial adoptees, similar to immigrants, navigate a cultural and ethnic context other than their birth culture. However, they are unique in that they navigate these experiences within families who don’t share their cultural, ethnic, and racial background. Critical questions emerge about the construction and development of their ethnic identity. These questions include the role that transracial adoptive parents play in providing cultural socialization (exposure to children’s birth culture); the impact of culture camps designed to provide cultural socialization in the context of peers; the intersection of adoptive identity and ethnic identity and youth adjustment; whether relations between ethnic identity and adjustment are linear or curvilinear; the role of bicultural identity integration as a link between ethnic identity and pscyhosocial adjustment; and ethnic identity processes among internationally transracially adopted young adults who mentor younger adoptees from similar cultures. These questions are addressed in this special issue in a collection of studies that examine ethnic identity among diverse international transracial adoptees, at different ages, adopted into two countries and using differing sample sizes and methodologies. International transracial adoptive families represent a microcosm of the growing international, transracial, and transethnic social transactions taking place in this diverse world. The collective findings in this special issue about the multidimensionality of ethnic identity and its intersectionality with other identities across developmental eras not only enhance knowledge about identity development among international transracial adoptees, but also expand understanding about identity development in general. This is the 150th volume in this Jossey-Bass series New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development. Its mission is to provide scientific and scholarly presentations on cutting edge issues and concepts in this subject area. Each volume focuses on a specific new direction or research topic and is edited by experts from that field.

Lloyd Wolfinbarger, Jr. Enzyme Regulation in Metabolic Pathways

6910.54 руб.
Enzyme Regulation in Metabolic Pathways shows the reader how to understand the roles of enzymes and their kinetic constants in intermediary metabolism. It provides a means of correlating data obtained in experimental studies to multiple possible mechanisms through which some enzyme may catalyze the conversion of a substrate to a product. Although not the most appropriate means of determining some potential kinetic mechanism, quasi-equilibrium assumptions are used throughout the book, keeping the rate equation derivations simple. Actual metabolic pathways with known (presumed) positive and negative regulation events are linked to these potential kinetic mechanisms using both rate equation derivations and data plots illustrating how the rate equation derivations can be used to explain the data plots. This book will be a valuable reference for students in biological sciences and biochemistry majors required to take a core course in enzymology.

Jibril Adewale Bamgbade and Samuel Babatunde Agbola Profiling Urban Youth Gangs in Ibadan: A Study of the City's Response

4749 руб.
The book profiled the various youth gangs in Ibadan, and the reactions of the city’s residents to their activities. The concentration of youth gangs was more noticeable in inner city neighbourhoods and ghettoes like the interior sections of Agbeni, Ayeye, Ekotedo and Ogunpa in Ibadan North West. Similar development was witnessed in the squalid sections of Ibadan South East (Beere, Oranyan, Oja’ba, Labo, Modina) which eventually contributed to high rates of youth gang’s delinquency in those areas. However, lack of opportunities for skilled and unskilled labour contributed to high rates of youth gang’s delinquency, especially in neighbourhoods under Ibadan North West. Therefore, a strong relationship exists between lack of economic opportunities for both skilled and unskilled labour and development of youth gangs (ρ=0.538). A number of strategies were recommended to curtail this trend in Ibadan, some of which are: Provision of adequate economic opportunities for both skilled and unskilled labour and the involvement of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), religious bodies, parents, guardians and community heads in the area of youth empowerment and socio-economic development.
