1. Higgins, Doreen. The Role of Estate Recovery in Medicaid Long-term Care: Perspectives of Older Adult Homeowners.

Degree: PH.D., Social Welfare, 2008, University of Kansas

This qualitative study of older homeowners explored their perspectives on the estate recovery provisions that Medicaid recipients are required to accept if they depend on the program for their long-term care. Fifty-one homeowners age 55 and older who resided in a Midwestern metropolitan area participated in focus group discussions. Six groups were held at a large university medical center and attracted White participants (n=37) almost exclusively. Two groups were conducted at an urban senior center with African-Americans (n=14) participants. Findings that emerged from analysis of focus group data suggest that (1) participants viewed homeownership as conferring many social, psychological, economic and health benefits (2) participants had little information about Medicaid estate recovery (3) Medicaid was viewed as a necessary "safety net" to be used as a "last resort" and (4) support and non-support of estate recovery policy and the importance of inheritance varied greatly by research venue and, therefore, by racial composition of the focus groups. Implications for social work practice, policy and research are discussed with special attention to the complex dynamics of age, race, and asset building. Advisors/Committee Members: Scanlon, Edward T. (advisor), Adams, Deborah (cmtemember), Koenig, Terry (cmtemember), Weick, Ann (cmtemember), Doan, Alesha (cmtemember).

2. Gordon, Theresa A. Living in the Memory of Loss: Exploring Aggressive, Palliative, and Hospice Care and Surviving Loved Ones.

Degree: PhD, Social Welfare, 2009, University of Kansas

This study is predominantly a quantitative investigation into the model of care received by deceased loved ones and its impact on the grief reactions of their caregiver. Grief is conceptualized to include both positive reactions, as finding comfort in memories, and negative reactions, as becoming depressed. Guiding theoretical paradigms are studied with associations between positivism and aggressive care; social constructivism and palliative care; and transpersonal theory and hospice care reviewed. A Continuum of End-of-Life Care Services is proposed that integrates all the models of care. The Inventory of Complicated Grief-Revised assessed the incidence of complicated grief among the surviving caregivers. A newly created scale, the Positive Grief Scale, assessed the incidence of positive grief. Additional data were analyzed regarding the delivery of best practices in end-of-life care and their helpfulness. Analyses included the impact of length of engagement with model of care and demographic risks factors for complicated grief. Four qualitative questions were included in the questionnaire. The sample included 180 caregivers whose loved ones received services from a local cancer support agency. A mailed questionnaire was used to collect the data. Independent sample t-tests, ANOVA, chi square tests, correlations, and frequencies were employed. Factor analyses were performed on the positive grief scale to obtain initial validity data. Results failed to confirm any significant difference among the three models of care and grief reactions. Demographic factors and length of stay in hospice also were not significantly predictive of either positive or negative grief. Best practices, including emotional and spiritual support; information on dying and bereavement; community resource referrals; and availability of the health care provider were significantly more likely to be present in hospice and rated more helpful by the participants. Multidisciplinary teams work was also substantiated. Qualitative data appeared to confirm the simultaneous presence of positive and negative grief. The Continuum of Health Care Services was revisited in terms of the results. Implications for social work practice, policy advocacy, and further research are examined. This research adds to the body of knowledge about what practices supports surviving caregivers to live well after the death of a loved one. Advisors/Committee Members: Peterson, K. Jean (advisor), Nelson-Becker, Holly (cmtemember), Weick, Ann (cmtemember), Chapin, Rosemary K. (cmtemember), Hamilton, Mary L. (cmtemember).

3. Cheon, Jeong Woong. Positive youth development and youth-professional relationships: Exploring the nature of strengths-based practices with children and youth from professionals' perspectives.

Degree: PH.D., Social Welfare, 2008, University of Kansas

The purpose of this study was to explore the nature of positive youth development as it incorporates aspects of the strengths perspective. This study focused on youth professionals' understanding of the meaning of youth development, the importance of youth-adult relationships, and the benefits and challenges to successful practices. A qualitative study based on in-depth interviews with 18 youth professionals, including nine social workers, was conducted. The analysis revealed that youth development is applied to work with youth in a variety of settings and the strengths perspective has been applied to the field of social work and youth development. The study identified that the field of social work with youth is moving beyond treatment and prevention toward youth promotion practice as a convergence of a strengths perspective and youth development. Insights from participants and the literature were synthesized to present a conceptualization of youth promotion and its implications for social work. Advisors/Committee Members: Canda, Edward (advisor), Koenig, Terry (cmtemember), Petr, Chris (cmtemember), Nelson-Becker, Holly (cmtemember), Rice, Suzanne (cmtemember), Weick, Ann (cmtemember).
