The purpose of The Science of Research on Families: A Workshop, held in Washington, DC, on July , , was to examine the broad array of methodologies used to understand the impact of families on children's health and development. It sought to explore individual disciplinary contributions and the ways in which different methodologies and disciplinary perspectives could be combined in the study of families.
Toward an Integrated Science of Research on Families - Workshop Report (Paperback)
Toward an Integrated Science of Research on Families documents the information presented in the workshop presentations and discussions. The report explores the idea of family research as being both basic and applied, offering opportunities for learning as well as intervention. It discusses research as being most useful when organized around particular problems, such as obesity or injury prevention. Toward an Integrated Science of Research on Families offers a problem-oriented approach that can guide a broad-based research program that extends across funders, institutions, and scientific disciplines.

Abstract: Volunteering by immigrants is viewed as an untapped resource for civil society, adding diversity and multiculturalism to civic life. Volunteering offers immigrants multiple cultural, economic, and personal benefits and thus has positive implications for their social integration. Yet, knowledge on the more intricate behaviors and mechanisms underlying immigrant volunteering is at its infancy.
Particularly, we explore variation on migrant status between native-born individuals and 1st and second generation immigrants. We further acknowledge that volunteering is not a monolithic construct by focusing on both formal and informal volunteering. We draw on the wave of the German Survey on Volunteering, a representative sample of the German population, with 83 percent native-born, 7 percent second generation and 9. Findings indicate that first and second generation immigrants differ in their formal volunteering behavior from native-borns.
Second-generation immigrants and native-born individuals show similar levels of informal volunteering, while first generation immigrants still have a reduced probability to informally volunteer. Among recent immigrants, we find that lack of language skills inhibited formal volunteering but not informal volunteering.
By considering a more nuanced approach to migration status, this study sheds light on the question of integration of immigrants, especially those who do not possess sufficient language skills, and also highlights the importance of informal volunteering as important contribution to civic life. Her research interests are human resource management, volunteering and volunteer management as well as the impact of organizational change on employees and volunteers.

Rainey II , Ph. Cuffe, a wealthy black merchant, Quaker, and philanthropist challenged paternalistic orientations to abolitionism and called for an expanded expression of benevolence based on shared economic power. I contend that black economic agency emerged alongside white Christian abolitionism and philanthropy as early as the beginning of the nineteenth century and redefined how democracy and freedom could be imagined after slavery.
While interrogating how abolitionists behind British companies in Freetown employed religious reasoning to explain their pursuit of profit, I narrate the unfolding of black economic cooperation and hope as a revisionist project to desegregate the transatlantic marketplace and alter the blueprint for freedom in Sierra Leone. My dissertation shows that abolitionism and philanthropic giving as a means toward social improvement must include a democratically imagined idea of benevolence. Benevolence on these terms broadens the scope of the humanitarian gift to include aid in support of entrepreneurial growth within communities, cooperative practices between benefactors and beneficiaries, and shared economic power.
Bio: Tim Rainey is currently a Ph. His research focuses on religion, race, and economy in the nineteenth century Black Atlantic world. Abstract: We find evidence of gender differences in goal-setting. Women are more conservative goal setters than men, i. A plausible explanation for these differences is that women place more weight on luck rather than effort in determining outcomes, compared to men. Drug and Alcohol Dependence, 41 , Edelstein, K.
