1. Aleem, Sadia. Bereavement in childhood and the role of attachment.

Degree: PhD, 2018, University of Bedfordshire

The purpose of this research was to utilise attachment theory in understanding the experience of bereavement in childhood. Research objectives were addressed by using a mixed method design. Study One explored how experience of bereavement in childhood relates to current attachment style in adulthood. This was a qualitative interview-based study utilising thematic analysis and a quantitative assessment of attachment styles. Twenty-four participants were employed. The established Experience in Close Relationships (ECR) questionnaire was used. The results through the thematic analysis indicated that people with different attachment styles provide different narratives about their childhood bereavement. This study provides evidence that this was so. Study Two was a co-relational study employing 121 participants who experienced loss of caregiver in childhood. Four established questionnaires were used: Inventory of Complicated Grief (ICG; Prigerson et al., 1995), Experience in Close Relationships Questionnaire-Revised (ECR; Fraley, Waller, & Brennan, 2000), Separation Anxiety Symptom Inventory (SASI; Silove, Manicavasagar, O’Connell, Blaszczynski, Wagner, & Henry, 1993) and Parental Bonding Instrument (PBI; Parker, Tupling, & Brown, 1979). The results showed that complicated grief was related to parental care and overprotection, separation anxiety, and adult attachment style. Anxious attachment style fully mediated the effects of parental bonding on complicated grief. Study Three was a quantitative co-relational study to compare two groups of parents (with and without a bereaved child) on child behavioural differences and links between child behavioural problems and parental characteristics. Two hundred and forty participants were employed: 139 parents of children with bereavement experience and 101 without bereavement experience. Five established questionnaires were used: Child Stress Questionnaire (CSQ), Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ), The Parenting Scale (PS), Inventory of Complicated Grief (ICG), and Experience in Close Relationships Questionnaire-Revised (ECR-R). The results showed that child problems were closely associated to parental qualities. It is proposed that this research can make a contribution towards utilising attachment theory in understanding the experience of bereavement in children.

Cancer invades in every household worldwide irrespective of social status, socio-economical levels or educational background. On a global scale, the disease appears in over ten million persons every year. Based on recent available statistics during 2000, ten million and one hundred thousand new cancer cases have been diagnosed reaching a total of twenty two million and four hundred thousand cancer patients whereas six million and two hundred thousand deaths occurred worldwide. Compared to 1990, there is a 19% increase on the ration of cancer-patients versus death from cancer. The regulation of the cell cycle and the discrepancy in these mechanisms that are involved in causing the decease represent for both biochemical scientists and psychological health professionals a mystery yet to be explained. Proof for this, is all modem research around the immune system of the human body and its absolute correlation to stress. It is under this scope that this thesis aims to investigate, using a quantitative approach on seven cancer female patients, how psychological processes may give rise to psychosomatic consequences. The results of this investigative procedure expose the multiple variables of the problem and the consequences that result from the psychosomatic pain. A pain that reflects in all areas of human life.

Ο καρκίνος προσβάλλει τους ανθρώπους ανεξαρτήτως κοινωνικού στρώματος, κοινωνικο-οικονομικής κατάστασης και μορφωτικού επιπέδου. Σε παγκόσμια κλίμακα η νόσος εμφανίζεται σε περίπου 10 εκατομμύρια άτομα ετησίως. Σύμφωνα με τα πλέον πρόσφατα διαθέσιμα στατιστικά δεδομένα κατά το έτος 2000, διαγνώστηκαν 10,1 εκατομμύρια νέες περιπτώσεις καρκίνου, προκλήθηκαν 6,2 εκατομμύρια θάνατοι και υπήρχαν συνολικά 22,4 εκατομμύρια ασθενείς από τη νόσο παγκοσμίως. Σε σχέση με το 1990, παρατηρείται μια ανοδική αύξηση της επίπτωσης του καρκίνου της τάξεως του 19%. Η ρύθμιση του κυτταρικού κύκλου και η διαταραχή αυτών των μηχανισμών που εμπλέκονται στην εκκόλαψη της νόσου, αποτελούν τόσο για τους βιολογικούς επιστήμονες όσο και για τους επαγγελματίες ψυχικής υγείας μια αινιγματική πρόκληση. Απόδειξη αποτελούν οι σύγχρονες έρευνες γύρω από το ανοσοποιητικό σύστημα και τους άρρηκτους δεσμούς του με τις καταστάσεις άγχους. Σε αυτό το πλαίσιο, η παρούσα διδακτορική διατριβή επιδιώκει μέσα από μια ποιοτική μορφή προσέγγισης, σε δείγμα εφτά καρκινοπαθών γυναικών, να διερευνήσει και να αποσαφηνίσει κατά ποιον τρόπο οι ψυχικές διεργασίες ενθαρρύνουν την ανάπτυξη σωματοποιήσεων. Τα συμπεράσματα της ερευνητικής διαδικασίας, αναδεικνύουν την πολυπαραγοντικότητα του προβλήματος και τις επιπτώσεις που προκαλούνται εξαιτίας του σωματο-ψυχικού πόνου, ο οποίος αντανακλάται σε όλους τους τομείς της ανθρώπινης ζωής.

3. Tiatia, Ramona. Family-Centred Healing At Home: A Samoan Epistemology of Samoan Families’ Experiences of Home Dialysis and Home Detention in Aotearoa/New Zealand .

Degree: University of Otago

Home dialysis and home detention are home-based public services increasingly used in Samoan households living in Aotearoa/New Zealand. They are cheaper than institutionally-provided hospital and correctional services and save the government millions of dollars; savings which do not seem to be transferred to the households which switch to home-based services. This thesis considers the role of housing in Samoan families living in Aotearoa/New Zealand, both symbolically and practically. It analyses in depth the way these two different public services are adapted within the home built environment and the effect these have on the lives of Samoan occupants. The quality of housing and built environments are a vital and significant component of home-based services, yet, largely ignored in the literature and state policies as having an effect on the health of occupants. In this qualitative research I used a multiple-case study approach to investigate the housing experiences of five Samoan dialysis patients (n=4) and their carers (n=8); and two Samoan home detainees (n=2) and a sponsor (n=1). Using an iterative approach of the Photovoice method, disposable cameras were used by the participants to produce photographs about their experiences. In consultation with Samoan elders, I also developed an epistemological model of Samoan health and well-being based on the traditional house and descriptions of tides and winds. The participants’ photographs and in-depth interviews in the Samoan and English languages were matched to the three stratified areas of the Samoan traditional dwelling: front of house, middle of house and back of house. Key informant interviews with public service officials were also analysed to provide important information about the Wellington Hospital Renal Unit (n=2) and the New Zealand Prison Services of the Corrections Department (n=5). Home-based services, when compared to hospital and prison institutional services, gave the participants many advantages. These included the convenience of being at home, reduced transport and travelling costs, spending more time with family and friends and in some cases participation in vocational and rehabilitation programmes. Samoan culture provided a useful framework for families to respond to the sensitive issues and obligations associated with palliative renal care, death, spirituality, gender arrangements, transplantation, cultural identity and restorative justice. Other unexpected and less favourable outcomes associated with home-dialysis were fuel poverty, lack of indoor storage, minimal spatial heating and issues of waste disposal. Samoan participants expected far more support at home from public authorities than they in fact received and many of them experienced stigmatisation and social isolation. These everyday experiences forced some dialysis patients to give up home-based services and return to hospital services, which are more expensive. For some home detainees, spousal violence and problems with other family members increased… Advisors/Committee Members: Howden-Chapman, Philippa L (advisor).
