Gender Education and Training in Doctoral Level Psychology Programs: An Exploratory Investigation
This doctoral project was an exploratory investigation of the treatment of gender in the education and training of doctoral level psychology graduate students. Fifty-one doctoral level psychology programs, including Ph.D., Psy.D. and Ed.D. programs, were placed into one of three groups based on their orientation, practitioner-oriented program (P-OP), clinical research-oriented program (CR-OP), or combined orientation program (CP).

Preparing Future Leaders: Principals’ Perceptions of the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Conso
Recent high-stakes accountability movements in education have significantly changed the role of the school principal. As the incongruence between principal preparation programs and successful principalships becomes more apparent, it is imperative that principal preparation programs evolve to meet the complex needs of today’s principalship and prepare leaders for tomorrow’s schools.

A Study of the Prereferral Intervention Process in Pennsylvania Following the Rescinding of the Inst
The increasing demand for special education services has been identified as a major contributor to the rising cost of education, and frequently students are erroneously identified as requiring special education services when their needs could be adequately addressed in the regular education classroom. The prereferral intervention process has been proposed as an alternative to the traditional refer-test-place process of identifying special education students because struggling students receive ex
The Effects of Semantic and Thematic Clustering on Learning English Vocabulary by Saudi Students
The present study aimed to compare the effects of semantic and thematic clustering on learning English vocabulary by Saudi students. It investigated whether thematic grouping or the use of meaningful context facilitates vocabulary learning. It was also conducted to shed light on how the use of context might be combined with clustering in order to facilitate learning. The study consisted of two parts. In the first part, the quantitative stage, 160 participants studied four lists of English words
Parenting Education for Low-Income Parents of Preschoolers: What is the Most Effective Approach?
Parent education programs have been found to be effective interventions for lower-socioeconomic families. (Baydar, Reid, & Webster-Stratton, 2002). Although research has reliably reported that any parent training is better than no parent training (Helm & Kozloff, 1986), the effectiveness of group parent education programs which emphasize relational improvement is largely unknown. The present study attempted to address this question by comparing archival data collected between the years 1999 and
Judging the Hate Crime Victim: Law School Student Perceptions and the Effects of Individual and law
The present study examines the effects of individual and law school factors on the perceptions of African-American, gay, and lesbian hate crime victims for 283 law school students from two schools in western Pennsylvania. Although research on the perceptions of hate crimes and hate crime victims has increased over the last decade, research has neglected to focus on this particular population of students. This population is important because many of these law students will seek roles in the crimi

The Arkansas AIDS Drug Assistance Program and Jefferson Comprehensive Care Inc. appealed to the joint legislative Minority Health Subcommittee for increased funding and new laws.
Examining the Burdens of Gendered Racism: Implications for Pregnancy Outcomes Among College-Educated

Objective: Although discriminatory health care experiences and health care provider distrust have been shown to be associated with health care disparities, little is known about their contribution to racial/ethnic disparities in antiretroviral therapy adherence. We therefore sought to assess the extent to which discriminatory health care experiences and health care provider distrust influence treatmentrelated attitudes, beliefs, and self-reported adherence in a national sample of HIV-infected pa
