1. Otchere, Y.O. Masculine Gender Role Conflict and its Psycho-Social Correlates: A Study among Homosexual Men in Ghana.

Degree: 2014, University of Ghana

Building on current knowledge, the primary aim of the present study was to assess psycho-social correlates of Masculine Gender Role Conflict (MGRC) among homosexual men and to posit and test a model by which the variables (psychological well-being, gay identity development and attitudes towards psychological help seeking behaviour) are related to MGRC. Guided by the Male gender role conflict theory, survey and interviews were used to collect data from 175 homosexual men. The data analysis methods used in the present study includes: descriptive statistics, pearson r correlation, regression and the Interpretative Phenomenological Analyses (IPA) to elaborate understandings on the relationships among the variables of interest. Correlation analyses revealed that high scores on MGRC were associated with positive attitude towards seeking psychological help. Also, high scores on MGRC were associated with fewer problems with anger, anxiety and depression among homosexual men. On the contrary, Africentric coping strategies could not moderate the relationship between MGRC and psychological well-being. Consequently, no mediation path was detected between gender role conflict and Gay Identity development with, sex-role preference as a mediator variable. Data derived from the qualitative analyses suggest that homosexual men in the present study experience stressors associated with MGRC. However, the results showed that collective coping in terms of sense of sexual identity was more recognizable among homosexual men. Therefore, the present study suggested a contextual model to better understand Masculine Gender Role Conflict among homosexual men in Africa.

2. Abdul-Nasiru, I. Organisational Culture, Change Readiness and Successful Change Implementation in Universities in Ghana .

Degree: 2014, University of Ghana

Universities have unique features from regular business entities. However, like any other organisation the environment in which they operate is constantly changing, and they need to change not only to survive but to compete successfully to achieve set objectives. This study examines universities and how they achieve success in change implementation, given their culture and readiness for change tendencies. A total of 528 participants made up of academic and non-teaching staff, as well as students were selected from ten (10) public and private universities in Ghana for the study. The mixed method was used for the data collection and analysis. Quantitative data gathered through questionnaires were analysed using the Pearson Product-Moment Correlation, Multivariate Analysis of Variance (MANOVA) and Multiple Regression. For the interviews, Thematic Analysis was used for the analysis. Results show that private universities have significant features of clan and adhocracy cultures compared with public universities. Furthermore, readiness for change mediated the relationship between organisational culture and successful change implementation (measured in terms of technology acceptance). However, data showed that there is no significant difference between public and private universities in terms of change implementation success. The findings were discussed and recommendations made in terms of strategies for achieving successful change implementation Advisors/Committee Members: Puplampu, B. B (advisor), Opoku, J.

3. Gyasi-Gyamerah, A. A. Attitudes toward Homosexuals: Assessing the Structure of Prejudicial Attitudes and the Moderating Effects of Religious Commitment and Morality .

Degree: 2014, University of Ghana

Homosexuality has been a topic for debate for quite some time in Ghana and a lot of negative sentiments have been expressed publicly about it. This study therefore examined the structure of prejudicial attitudes toward homosexuals and the extent to which these attitudes are moderated by religious commitment and morality. It also examined the role of attributions in determining attitudes toward homosexuals and how homosexuals in turn view societal attitudes toward themselves. To achieve these, three studies (Ns = 190, 183, 159) were conducted using mixed methods to gather data from students of the University of Ghana. Overall, participants were found to have prejudicial attitudes that are solely driven by stereotypic beliefs and moderated by religious commitment and moral values. Both Study 1 and Study 2 found that attitudes toward homosexuals are negative regardless of personal characteristics. Unlike was the case in Study 1, in Study 2, the attitude components were associated with each other and their effects on the evaluation of homosexuals were moderated by religious commitment and moral values. Additionally, evaluation of homosexuals was relatively more favourable in the post-test condition although still negative and the most favourable behavioural intentions were towards the vignette 3 person. In Study 3, it emerged from the FGDs that religion permeates all aspects of Ghanaians‘lives although their religious commitment and morality is low albeit with justification. The negative attitudes found in Studies 1 and 2 were replicated here also as was the favourable behavioural intentions toward the vignette 3 person. The IDIs with homosexual students generally confirmed these findings. Limitations of the study and their implications for future research are discussed Advisors/Committee Members: Danquah, S. A (advisor), Mate-Kole, C. C (advisor), Opoku, J. Y (advisor), Akotia, C. S (advisor).
