AbstractWomen in American society experience high levels of stress and the resultant physical and psychological challenges. While leisure is often seen as a context for stress relief, a variety of leisure constraints make it difficult for many women to have this experience. A focus group was conducted with five women who are mothers of young children to explore the division of labor in family travel. This paper reports on the experience of participant empowerment, which occurred through the dialogue that took place. Findings from this study have implications for those seeking to empower people who experience discrimination and marginalization in a variety of settings. We explore the value of creating safe spaces and facilitating dialogue as a means of mitigating against alienation, enhancing community building, and creating solidarity.

Family-based association study of markers on chromosome 22 in schizophrenia using African-American, European-American, and Chinese familiesTakahashi, Sakae; Cui, Yu-hu; Kojima, Takuya; Han, Yong-hua; Zhou, Ru-lum; Kamioka, Masashi; Yu, Shun-ying; Matsuura, Masato; Matsushima, Eisuyke; Wilcox, Marsha; et al. (Wiley, 2003-06-13)Several studies suggest that loci at chromosome 22q11.2-q13 might be linked to susceptibility to schizophrenia. Here we performed family-based association studies on chromosome 22q using 12 DNA microsatellite markers in African-American, European-American, and Chinese pedigrees. The marker D22S683 showed significant linkage and association with schizophrenia in not only the European-American sample but also in a combined sample (European-American and Chinese samples). Notably, D22S683 is located nearby and between D22S278 and D22S283, which have shown linkage and association to schizophrenia in prior reports. However, we found no significant association for the African-American sample. In conclusion, our data provide further support for the idea that the region around D22S683 contains a susceptibility gene for schizophrenia. © 2003 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
Child and Family Clinic-Plus Program: How to Involve Children and Families in Mental Health Screenings in a Clinic SettingTsou, Yao-Szu; The College at Brockport (2009-01-01)This study was aimed at using a survey to seek strategies to improve the mental health screening rate for the Child and Family Clinic-Plus program in a clinic setting. The Child and Family Clinic-Plus program is a package involving broad-based screening in natural environments, comprehensive assessment, and evidence-based treatment. A questionnaire was conducted to collect the Clinic-Plus practitioners’ experiences and strategies regarding improvement of the screening rate and ways to better engage children and families in the Clinic-Plus Program in Western New York. Themes emerged from the results including participants utilizing multiple screening sites and personnel to conduct screenings, face to face encounter with families working well, learning collaborative meeting held by Office of Mental Health being helpful, and participants providing their challenges regarding screenings and strategies to engage families. Areas of future research developments were discussed. It concluded with the implications for practitioners to improve their practice of involving children and families in mental health screenings.
Mutations in the CYLD gene in Brooke-Spiegler syndrome, familial cylindromatosis, and multiple familial trichoepithelioma: lack of genotype-phenotype correlation.Bowen, Sarah; Gill, Melissa; Lee, David A; Fisher, Galen; Geronemus, Roy G; Vazquez, Marialuisa Espinel; Celebi, Julide TokBrooke-Spiegler syndrome (BSS), familial cylindromatosis (FC), and multiple familial trichoepithelioma (MFT), originally described as distinct entities, share overlapping clinical findings. Patients with BSS are predisposed to multiple skin appendage tumors such as cylindroma, trichoepithelioma, and spiradenoma. FC, however, is characterized by cylindromas and MFT by trichoepitheliomas as the only tumor type. These disorders have recently been associated with mutations in the CYLD gene. In this report, we describe three families with BSS, one with FC, and two with MFT phenotypes associated with novel and recurrent mutations in CYLD. We provide evidence that these disorders represent phenotypic variation of a single entity and lack genotype-phenotype correlation.
