Reproductive autonomy is necessary for one's overall well-being and is defined as the ability to decide and control issues of contraceptive use, pregnancy, and birth. Barriers to consistent contraceptive use persist, limiting an individual's ability to exercise reproductive autonomy. The present study investigated the prevalence of reproductive autonomy and gender beliefs among 468 university students (311 women and 157 men) in a rural setting. Participants completed surveys measuring reproductive autonomy, attitudes around gender beliefs, and demographic questions...

Social work professionals would benefit by including integrative medicine programs and practices in their framework of practice and service delivery to clients. In our rapidly changing health care environment, using a model that provides a more comprehensive and empowering approach to addressing the medical and psychological needs of our clients is warranted. Discussion of holistic social work practice and implications for social work education and training will be examined through a review of the research and clinical application of a mind-body program titled the Relaxation Response Resiliency Program (3RP)...

Victor Figuereo, Rocío Calvo
Studies on access to health care among Latinx communities have overlooked (a) the use of traditional healers and (b) the role of social networks in seeking traditional healers. Framed within the network-episode model, this study aimed to examine the role of individual, institutional, and personal network systems in the use of curanderxs among Latinxs in the United States. Using a nationally representative sample of Latinx adults (N = 3,997) from the 2007 Hispanic Healthcare Survey, authors conducted multivariate logistic regression analyses to investigate the impact of individual, institutional, and personal network systems on the use of curanderxs...

Jildyz Urbaeva, Theodore Jackson, Daejun Park
The importance of social capital and economic advantage for health is well established in literature. The relationship between health and social capital through informal financial aid is less understood. Using representative data (N = 7,474), authors explored an association between informal financial aid and health satisfaction in Kyrgyzstan, a post-socialist low-income country in Eurasia. Multilevel modeling revealed significant associations between informal aid and health. Cross-level interactions between individual and neighborhood financial aid were also significantly associated with health satisfaction...

The current study investigated the post-abortion health behaviors of adolescents. Authors assessed the association between pre-abortion interventions and receiving post-abortion checkups and uptake of effective contraceptives. Participants were 172 adolescents under 19 years of age who were recruited pre-abortion at 10 hospitals in Israel and followed up by phone one and two months post-abortion. Results indicate that a quarter of participants did not receive a post-abortion checkup. The reported reasons for this were mostly personal, with very few cases attributed to accessibility issues...

Psychological capital (PsyCap), which provides a new outlook on the fields of human resources and organizational behavior, is the entirety of positive and improvable features of an individual. An employee's PsyCap can be positively or negatively affected by a social worker's perceptions and beliefs. The purpose of this study was to assess the impact of PsyCap on the job satisfaction and organizational commitment of health care personnel. Data collection was performed through a survey of 501 health care personnel at a public university hospital in Turkey...

Integrated health care (IHC) is a proposed change to the U.S. health care system to address health care disparities for individuals with mental and physical health conditions. Computer applications may provide an effective strategy to prepare social workers for the transition to IHC. An Internet-based tool, Integrated Healthcare (Version 1.0) was developed and tested through rapid prototyping to access knowledge required for behavioral health providers to practice in IHC settings. Two focus groups (N = 5, N = 7) and individual interviews (N = 5) were conducted with social work professors and students...

Travis Labrum, Phyllis Solomon
In this period of post-deinstitutionalization, much of the care for people with severe psychiatric disorders (PD) is provided by their families. A primary stressor for caregivers is fears regarding their own safety and that of others, which has been virtually unexplored. To fill this gap, factors in three domains were assessed: (1) relatives with PD, (2) family caregivers, and (3) interactions with each other. This investigation was a secondary analysis of data obtained from a national survey of caregivers of adults with mental illness conducted by the National Alliance for Caregiving...

The purpose of this qualitative study was to explore the experiences of commissioning parents (CPs) who travel abroad for surrogacy, paying attention to motivations, processes, and sources of social support. The authors recruited 10 CPs and used semistructured, in-depth interviews to illicit storytelling. Data analysis revealed primary themes around CPs' experiences pre-surrogacy, during surrogacy, and post-surrogacy. International surrogacy was described as a long and arduous journey only undertaken after multiple failed attempts at "natural" conception...

Michael Weinberg
The study reported in this article examined the relationship between psychosocial functioning and tendency to forgive, social support, and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms of terror survivors (N = 108). Structural equation modeling was used to examine whether PTSD symptoms mediated the association between tendency to forgive, social support, and psychosocial functioning. The findings demonstrated that the association between tendency to forgive and psychosocial functioning was mediated exclusively by PTSD symptoms, whereas the association between social support and psychosocial functioning was partially mediated by PTSD symptoms...

Soonhee Roh, Catherine E Burnette, Yeon-Shim Lee
Although cancer disparities among American Indian (AI) women are alarming, research on spiritual coping among this population is virtually nonexistent. This is particularly problematic, given the importance of medical practitioners' discussing the topic with cancer patients, along with the centrality of spirituality to many AI patients. The purpose of this article was to explore AI women cancer survivors' spiritual coping with their experiences. Using a community-based participatory research approach, this qualitative descriptive study included a sample of 43 AI women cancer survivors (n = 14 breast cancer, n = 14 cervical cancer, and n = 15 colon and other types of cancer)...

The purpose of this study was to conduct psychometric reevaluation of the Bristol Activities of Daily Living Scale (BADL) among a population logistically difficult to observe beyond cross-sectional analysis: nursing home residents with advanced dementia (AD). Data from observation-based measures were collected by nursing home staff at two intervals within a three-month time frame among 43 residents identified with AD via medical records and nursing home staff. Three broad properties of BADL were examined: factor structure, reliability, and validity...
