1. Jin, Lan. DON’T WORRY, I AM FINE: A QUALITATIVE ANALYSIS OF FAMILY COMMUNICATION AND DEPRESSION IN CHINESE INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS IN THE US.

Degree: MS, Consumer Science, 2014, Purdue University

Depression and associated mental health problems are increasingly a critical health issue for Chinese international students in the U.S. (Lyubomirsky, Kasri, & Zehm, 2003; Cheung, 2011; Liu, 2009). Recent studies in different U.S. universities found a 32% to 47% rate for depression symptoms among Chinese international students (Cheung, 2011; Wei et al., 2007). The statistics suggest that Chinese students face a high prevalence of depression problems (Han et al., 2013). To address the depression problems, family communication provides substantial support for Chinese students (Liu, 2009). However, little is known about family communicative practices of this population (Wei et al., 2010). Extant studies and reviews show that there is a strong need to study depression and family communication in Chinese international students to better respond to their needs (Xing et al., 2010). This research aimed to explore the meanings of depression and parental communication practices in Chinese international students in the U.S., and find recommendations for developing family communication interventions that address depression. The participants were recruited through convenient sampling and purposive sampling method in the Chinese communities at Purdue. The data was collected by interviews and focus groups, and further transcribed and translated from Chinese into English. The software NVivo 10 was used to support data analysis, and grounded theory method was employed (Glasser & Strauss, 1967). Thematic analysis of the data developed the following themes: (1) meanings of depression: psychological, physiological and social disorder, (2) selective depression communication with parents, (3) positive and negative feedback of parents influence depression communication, (4) different communication styles of mothers and fathers, (5) childhood experiences influence depression communicative practices, (6) interdependence and conflicting expectations restrain depression communication. This study of depression communication contributes to the large field of emotion communication within the family, providing implications into family training programs, health professional practice, and university administration to better understand the needs of Chinese international students, and offer effective support to cope with depression. Advisors/Committee Members: Lalatendu Acharya, Erina L. MacGeorge, Meghan E. Norris, Thomas J. Templin.

2. Taruwinga, Onias Muza. Examining the Impact of the Affordable Care Act on Small Businesses and Industries in Northwest Indiana.

Degree: PhD, Technology Leadership and Innovation, 2016, Purdue University

This research examined the lived experiences of small businesses in Northwest Indiana with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. The interviews were conducted over a period of six months with an attempt to answer the question, “What was the impact of the Affordable Care Act on small businesses and industries in Northwest Indiana?” Additional research questions were, “Did the Affordable Care Act extend coverage to the uninsured, include other medical services that were not covered before, and reduce cost sharing and what lessons can be learned from the implementation of the Affordable Care Act for future policy implementation?” 15 participants from Northwest Indiana were interviewed separately for 30 to 45 minutes each. Based on the analysis of data from interviews and observations, seven major themes emerged. These included the old system needed to be fixed, the Affordable Care Act made things worse was a form of government interference, it increased premiums, resulted in fear, frustration, and confusion, had positive outcomes, and eliminated pre-existing conditions. The outcomes of this study confirmed that while the Affordable Care Act helped some people obtain health insurance by eliminate pre-existing conditions, there is a strong indication that it also resulted in some unwanted consequences. This contribution includes suggestions for future qualitative study on the impact of the Affordable Care Act on small businesses. Advisors/Committee Members: Linda L. Naimi, Linda L. Naimi, Lalatendu Acharya, James L. Mohler, James J. Tanoos.

3. Swanson, LaTasha R. The graphic side of fear: The effects of anti-tobacco graphic threat appeals.

Degree: PhD, Communication, 2016, Purdue University

Many public health organizations have proposed and implemented campaigns and policies involving graphic ads or warnings to deter individuals from smoking. The current study evaluated how high-cigarette dependent smokers evaluate these messages compared to low-cigarette dependent smokers using a mixed, 3 x 2 factorial design. A pilot study involving focus groups, interviews, and evaluation questionnaires (N=10) was conducted to classify graphic threat appeals and develop stimulus materials for the primary study. For the primary study, three graphic threat appeal conditions were evaluated by Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk) users (N=200). Findings suggested that the graphicness of the images significantly influenced arousal, aversive response, and persuasion. However, high-cigarette dependent smokers evaluated messages as less aversive than low-cigarette dependent smokers to the graphicness in messages. Additionally, low-cigarette dependent smokers may be at greater risk for experiencing cognitive overload and reallocating cognitive resources to defensive responses. Implications of these findings and recommendations for future research and message design are discussed. Advisors/Committee Members: Marifran Mattson, Marifran Mattson, Lalatendu Acharya, Maria K. Venetis, David M. Whittinghill, Steven R. Wilson.
