1. McCarthy, Margaret. Siblings In Foster Care .

Degree: 2014, Cornell University

In the past two decades, researchers in the social sciences have begun to examine the importance of sibling support and connectedness across the lifespan. Siblings may provide an important source of social support, friendship and instrumental support to one another from childhood to later life. The meaning of sibling connections for foster children, whose connection to parents and adult caregivers has been disrupted, is an important area meriting study. Unfortunately, until very recently, there has been a dearth of well-designed research examining the important developmental issues involving siblings placed in out of home care. Secondary data analysis on a subsample drawn from the National Survey of Child and Adolescent Well-Being (NSCAW), Waves 1-5, was conducted to examine the life circumstances and developmental trajectories of foster children. Three comparison groups were drawn based on Wave 1 placement status, consisting of foster children partially separated from siblings (n =67, representing a population of 19,077), separated from all siblings (n = 116, representing a population of 32,109) and placed together with all siblings (n = 68, representing a population of 13,303). Increasing child age, child race and foster parent employment outside the home were significantly associated with sibling separation at Wave 1. Child characteristics, including child behavior at Wave 1 were not significantly associated with sibling separation status. Children did not differ by group membership with regard to placement in kinship care, or placement disruption. Children separated from siblings spent significantly longer in out of home placement than children placed with at least one sibling. Children separated from all siblings were significantly more likely to have experienced emotional abuse as their most serious form of maltreatment. Children separated from all siblings had significantly less contact with parents than other children. More than fifty percent of children separated from all siblings reported having had no visitation with either mother or father at the time of the Wave 1 interview.

2. Dixon, Graham. The Indirect Effects Of Exemplification In Two-Sided Messages Of Risk .

Degree: 2014, Cornell University

This dissertation examines the role of negative affect as a mediator of exemplification effects within the context of two-sided messages. To address this research, the dissertation integrates theories from information processing (e.g., affect primacy), information seeking (e.g., Risk Information Seeking and Processing model; RISP), and risk perception (e.g., affect heuristic) with the mass communication theory of exemplification. Focusing on the effects of information processing and risk perception, Chapter 3 reports on an experimental study that empirically tests the degree to which exemplars, by way of negative affect, influence readers' two-sided message recall and risk perception surrounding two controversial risk issues: vaccination and raw milk. Most important, the study bridges research on affect and risk perception with exemplification theory, while also providing practical guidelines for improved risk communication within the fields of public health and journalism. Chapter 4 documents a study that empirically tests the degree to which exemplars, by way of negative affect, influence readers' information seeking intentions and behavior, notably online comment reading. Most important, the study expands the RISP model by (1) bridging risk information seeking with exemplification theory (2) situating RISP within a novel methodological setting (i.e., a randomized experiment), and (3) measuring a specific information seeking behavior not yet studied in RISP (i.e., online comment reading). Overall, findings from the dissertation can (1) help expand our understanding of exemplification theory as it relates to visual exemplars and balanced reporting; (2) more precisely identify sources of risk amplification, uneven recall, and risk information seeking; (3) provide policy tools for improved risk communication in the field of journalism and public health.
