1. Kuhn, Veronica P. Getting to the Doctor: BPSS Factors of Health Care Utilization in Fragile Families.

Degree: PhD, Counseling and Family Sciences, 2015, Loma Linda University

The number of fragile families where a child is born to unwed parents has increased greatly over the past half-century and now represents a diverse population in the United States (Ventura, 2009). These families, who are predominantly African American and Hispanic (Hummer & Hamilton, 2010) and are more likely to live in poverty and experience poorer health, face significant barriers to access and utilize health care services (De Marco & De Marco, 2009; Williams, 2008). Limited research exists on how these facets of the illness experience might differ for fragile families whose resources are limited prior to illness. The Biopsychosocial Spiritual Model asserts that illness is impacted by biological, psychological, social, and spiritual facets of family life (Engel, 1977; Wright, Watson, & Bell, 1996). This model was originally developed as an assessment tool to aid in the diagnosis and treatment planning process (Engel, 1977) and as a result is limited in its application to issues like health access and utilization that may occur prior to symptom onset or illness diagnosis and treatment. The Family Systems-Genetic Illness Model expands the Biopsychosocial-Spiritual model to include the time period prior to illness diagnosis (Rolland & Williams, 2005). Using data from the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing study (Reichman, Teitler, Garfinkel, & McLanahan, 2001), structural equation modeling and actor-partner interdependence models will be employed to test two theoretical models. The first model proposes to identify how biological, psychological, social, and spiritual facets impact the health care utilization of fragile families. The second model will examine the impact of biopsychosocial-spiritual factors (identified in model one) on health care utilization of fragile families over time. Advisors/Committee Members: Distelberg, Brian, Oloo, Winetta A., Williams-Reade, Jacqueline M., Woods, Sarah.

2. Wray, Wendella. A Tele-Coaching Intervention to Support Families in the NPP+: An Experimental Mixed Method Design.

Degree: PhD, Counseling and Family Sciences, 2016, Loma Linda University

Poverty is the single greatest threat to a child’s well-being. Poverty has been shown to exacerbate child maltreatment (CM) and minimize nurturing parenting. CM is a leading cause of death among children under the age of five in the United States. Both poverty and CM are major public health concerns worldwide with important implications for the family. For over three decades great focus has been placed on developing evidence-based (EB) parenting and family interventions to promote the well-being of high-risk families. Using a conceptual framework guided by elements of the social cognitive theory, attachment theory and family systems theory, this pilot study examined if adding personalized tele-coaching to the delivery of the 16-week, evidence-based parenting program (EBPP) Nurturing Parenting Program (NPP) plus case management (NPP+) would offer better results for high-risk, low SES parents. Parents attending the NPP+ in community sites were randomly selected to receive 30-60 minutes of tele-coaching. Key treatment variables (i.e., stress-management, parental self-efficacy, child attachment and self-regulation of emotions) were examined for increases in self-reported parenting competencies scores in the intervention versus the control groups. Pre and post test survey results suggest that while the overall NPP+ is highly effective, adding a telecoaching intervention to individually review key topics to support parenting and related variables seems to not significantly add to the NPP+’s effectiveness. Nevertheless, in our process evaluation most parents stated that they really appreciated the flexibilty and additonal support that the individualized tel-coaching sessions offered. Thus, tele-coaching was well received. Tele-coaching as a content solidifying intervention should be explored adding it alone to NPP vs. NPP with case management as this may benefit some high need parents if resources are limited and a decision has to be made to offer case management or tele-coaching.

3. Nicoleau, Alicia Marie. Bonding and Psychosocial Adjustment of Youth in Foster Care.

Degree: PhD, Counseling and Family Sciences, 2017, Loma Linda University

Foster families face complex issues that include a history of maltreatment, family disruption, placement instability, behavioral problems, and other adjustment related concerns. Adjusting to these issues presents unique challenges to foster youths and their families. Using family systems theory as the theoretical lens, this study explored the ways in which youth psychosocial adjustment is related to the interactions between foster parents and foster youth in long-term placement as perceived and reported by foster parents. This study utilized a qualitative methodology with a grounded theory approach. Using in-depth interviews, foster parents described their perceptions of how their foster youth cope and adjust in the foster family context. This study has important implications for theory, research, and practice for individuals working with foster youth and their foster families. Advisors/Committee Members: Fox, Curtis A., Oloo, Winetta A., Sealy, Diadrey-Anne, Williams-Reade, Jackie.
