1. Forenza, Bradley Anton, 1982-. Civic engagement among youth aging out of foster care: processes and outcomes of a statewide initiative.

Degree: PhD, Social Work, 2014, Rutgers University

Youth aging out of foster care constitute a vulnerable and understudied population, for whom civic engagement opportunities are rare. In spite of evidence that suggests civic engagement may be an empowering, developmental process for youth in the general population, few empirical studies have investigated these phenomena among youth aging out of care. This research utilized a qualitative approach to study the intersection of aging out and civic engagement for the betterment of primary prevention services and policy. Utilizing a targeted engagement initiative (Youth Advisory Board) for youth aging out of care in New Jersey, this research analyzed: (1) in-depth interviews/survey data from Youth Advisory Board leaders (who are themselves somewhere in the process of aging out of foster care), (2) in-depth interviews/survey data from civic youth workers (who are paid adults/employees of a local, nonprofit vendor agency that performs work in the area of child welfare), and (3) non-participant observation of Youth Advisory Board meetings, which occurred at five regional memberships throughout the state. Emergent themes revealed that (1) service and activism were discussed and approached in silo, even though both are dimensions of civic engagement; (2) youth reported very high levels of connection to their civic youth workers (adult coordinators who are also professional employees of a local nonprofit), though adults did not report similarly high levels; (3) perceptions of access to, and opportunity derived from, the New Jersey Department of Children and Families were also discussed, in tandem with the notion that (4) youth in this study perceived the Department positively, which may be attributed to the fact that youth in this study had personal connections to departmental officials and administrators. The final emergent theme (5) pertained to the professional goals of this youth sample, whereby activist-oriented and helping profession careers comprised future aspirations.

2. Jemal, Alexis Diane, 1981-. Transformative consciousness of African American racial oppression and white racial privilege: conceptualization, scale development and testing.

Degree: PhD, Social Work, 2016, Rutgers University

Oppression has been identified as a fundamental cause of disease. Critical consciousness has been identified as an antidote to oppression. Although critical consciousness theory has been used to address inequality, very few scholars have attempted to operationalize and measure the construct. For the dissertation, the author developed and tested a scale of a new theoretical construct grounded in the critical consciousness literature. In response to the conceptual inconsistencies noted in the literature, the author developed a conceptual model of Transformative Consciousness, hypothesizing three dimensions: Awareness, Behavioral-Response, and Consequence. The author then developed a scale following the steps outlined in DeVellis (2003). To examine the psychometric qualities of the scale, the author conducted a content validity study in which experts evaluated the scale for representativeness, clarity, and factor structure. The author pilot tested the scale on small groups to identify wording issues and to receive suggestions for improving the scale. After the final revision of the scale, the author recruited a convenience sample of 348 respondents primarily through email solicitation. Because the conceptual model of Transformative Consciousness is theoretically based, the author used Confirmatory Factor Analysis to analyze the data and found the hypothesized three models to be a good fit to the data. The author also found evidence of construct validity and reliability.
