1. Grear, Karen Lynne. The Impact of Perceived Self-Control Over Treatment Access, Appraisal of Consequences of Substance Use, Self-Reliant Attitude Against Help-Seeking and Perception of Workplace Culture on the Behavioral Intention to Seek Treatment for Substance Abuse Among Union Construction Workers.

Degree: PhD, Social Work, 2011, The Catholic University of America

Degree awarded: Ph.D. Social Work. The Catholic University of America

More than 95 percent of adults who suffer from substance use disorders fail to connect either with professional treatment services or support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) (McCoy, C.B., Metsch, L.R., Chitwood, D.D., & Miles, C., 2001; Tighe & Saxe, 2006). When compared to any other occupation, adult construction workers (including union members) demonstrate among the highest heavy alcohol and illicit drug use (Office of Applied Studies, 2007; Popp & Swora, 2001). Research indicates a variety of psychological and environmental barriers likely impede treatment access (Clay, 2007). Less understood is the role of individual attitudes towards seeking professional treatment and appraisal of the consequences of substance use in negatively impacting help-seeking behaviors (Kleinman, Millery, Scimeca, & Polissar, 2002). In addition, union construction workers hold membership in a centuries-old, organizational culture that promotes substance abuse (Sonnenstuhl, 1996). `Union brotherhood' includes gender role indoctrination into a hypermasculine workplace culture that fosters substance use while discouraging treatment (Taillon, 2002). Union members are expected to demonstrate masculine self-reliance in `holding their liquor' and managing their substance use without requiring professional help (Bacharach, Bamberger, & Sonnenstuhl, 1994). Social workers and others in union MAPs need to develop a better understanding of factors that impact members' intention to seek treatment for substance use disorders in order to facilitate treatment entry.This study utilized a cross-sectional survey design to test the relationship between union construction workers' behavioral intention to seek help along three stages of a continuum ranging from ambivalence, to recognition to taking steps, and multiple psychological and environmental predictors. MRA analyses demonstrated that union construction workers' behavioral intention is predicted by their appraisal of negative consequences and adverse effects of their substance use in the workplace, their attitude about masculine self-reliance towards help-seeking, their concern about emotional self-control, and their perception of workplace support of consumption.

3. Morawek, Veronica. Factors Associated with Functional Health Limitations for Individuals with Chronic Kidney Disease: An Application of the Behavioral Health Model.

Degree: 2020, The Catholic University of America

According to the Centers for Disease Control, approximately 30 million Americans have Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2017). Disease progression and maintenance are important aspects of CKD. As disease maintenance and progression are vital components of assisting adults with CKD, it is also important to examine the effects lack of health practices have on CKD. Renal social workers remain the only federally mandated social workers to provide biopsychosocial care to address the disease progression and maintenance. CKD affects both the physical and emotional health of the adult experiencing it. Within these physical and emotional health challenges remains the financial burden of care. For many, access to and affordability of appropriate nephrology care may not be available. The financial burden prevents or reduces a person with CKD the ability to develop a purposeful treatment plan to reduce the development of comorbid diseases and maintain the progression of his or her CKD. As a result of these challenges, one may experience functional health limitations. Functional health refers to the ability for one to complete a task or activity, either physical or behavioral, in a controlled environment without difficulty (Physical Activity Guidelines Advisory Committee, 2008). The purpose of this study is to explore the factors that are associated with functional health limitations in adults with CKD. The study used the National Health Interview Survey, 2016 Adult Sample examining only adults who reported having CKD. The study addresses the research question of “What are the factors that predict the presence or absence of functional limitations in chronic kidney disease patients?”. The study applied an adapted version of Andersen’s Behavioral Health Model to test the hypothesis that factors influence functional health limitations in adults with CKD. A logistic regression analysis was used to determine the likelihood that predisposing, enabling, personal health practices, and use of health services variables predict the presence or absence of functional health limitations. The results of the study indicated that adults with CKD were more likely to: be older in age; not working; reduce caloric intake after speaking with a doctor; delay filling prescriptions due to cost, and; visit a medical specialist when reporting the presence of functional health limitations. The study provides support to the social work and nephrology communities as a baseline in developing future studies and programs to address the disparities regarding CKD disease management and functional health limitations.
