Thesis (Ed.D.)--Boston University / PLEASE NOTE: Boston University Libraries did not receive an Authorization To Manage form for this thesis or dissertation. It is therefore not openly accessible, though it may be available by request.

Thank you. / Transcending Terror is a study of eight Holocaust survivors who earned advanced degrees and became professors. As Jews trapped in Nazi-occupied Europe from 1939 to 1945 they endured terror and, in many cases, torture. For each, the postwar adaptation to normality included studying a subject that interested him or her, and which afforded a means of interpreting the world. Each narrative chapter describes the social background and circumstances that partly shaped a survivor's destiny. Also portrayed are the ind ividual's particular characteristics, perspectives, predilections, and aspirations. Michael Klein, from Janoshalma, Hungary, encountered Auschwitz at age fifteen. After the war, with great effort, he became a physicist. Jerzy Ogurek, from Upper Silesia, Poland, was ten when torn from his parents in Auschwitz. With time he settled into a "normal" life, also becoming a physicist. Ruth Anna Putnam was a half-Jewish German girl who lived with her non-Jewish grandparents, in Gotha. She eventually became a philosopher. Samuel Stern spent his early childhood in Ravensbruck and Bergen-Belsen. Later educated in the United States, he became a biologist. Zvi Griliches, from Kovno, Lithuania, survived a Dachau subsidiary camp. He achieved prominence as an economist. Maurice Vanderpol spent years in hiding, in Amsterdam. He resumed medical school after the war, becoming a psychiatrist. Halina Nelken grew up in Krakow, survived Auschwitz, and fulfilled her dream of becoming an art historian. Farmers in Le Chambon-sur-Lignon, France, sheltered Micheline Federman, then a young child from Paris. Micheline loved science, and became a pathologist. I analyzed data gathered in conversations, through observation, and from relevant writings, and arrived at a plausible set of conclusions. Knowledge of the breadth of human capacities and of evil may have contributed to these thoughtful individuals' ethical stance; to their belief in the unique dignity of humanness and to their commitment to engage in activities that benefit humankind. In accepting responsibility and in exercising personal choice, these survivors gave their lives meaning. The survivor, psychiatrist, and philosopher Viktor Frankl explored the human potential to realize such positive values. His work serves as a sensitizing and conceptual framework for this qualitative study. / 2031-01-01

Abolio, Bolukaoto 11 1900 (has links)
Thesis(M Med.(Family Medicine))--University of Limpopo, 2009. / Aim: The aim of this research was to explore the experiences of female rape survivors seen at Bopanang Centre in Upington, Northern Cape Province. The objectives of the study were: 1 To describe the experiences of female rape survivors who received health care at Bopanang Centre Upington, Northern Cape. 2 To enable caregivers understand the experiences of women who survived rape. Design: The design was a descriptive exploratory qualitative study using in depth interviews on females who survived rape. The interviews were conducted in both English and Afrikaans and recorded on audio tapes while field notes and a research diary were documented by the researcher. Setting: The setting was Bopanang Centre in Upington town in the Northern Cape. Study population: The study population was all female rape survivors seen at Bopanang Centre, Upington in the Northern Cape Province. The sample size of women interviewed was 10 participants. Results: Most female rape survivors recall exceptionally well the events leading to the rape. All the survivors experienced various post rape distressful feelings ranging from anger, bitterness, humiliation, sadness, and confusion, self-blame and guilt, lack of trust and fear of men to the most extreme feelings such as crushed dignity and dead inside even considering committing suicide. Variable and inconsistent care of services had been offered to them, without fully considering their specific needs and experiences of females who had survived rape. Victimization and stigma were barriers for disclosure and reporting of the rape. Excessive alcohol use and abuse of sleeping pills had been reported by some of the survivors as a means to alleviate the post rape distress. From the study disclosure was the most important factor in determining how one was able to cope with distress following the rape. All those survivors who had good family support could cope reasonably well to deal with post rape distress. Conclusion: The study concludes that the experiences of female rape survivors seenat Bopanang Centre in Upington Northern Cape have not been adequately addressed by health care providers and stakeholders, health care and post rape services offered to them. Female rape survivors having a good family support cope reasonably well despite the distressful post rape feelings experiences they experience on a daily basis.

Previous Holocaust Experiences Continue to Affect Food Attitudes in Survivors

Sindler, Amy Joyce 27 January 2003 (has links)
A qualitative study was conducted to determine if Holocaust survivors’ food attitudes are influenced by their earlier experiences. The 25 survivor interviewees (14 males, 11 females) ranged in age from 71 to 85 years and resided in Miami-Dade and Broward, Florida counties. Most (56%) were interned in concentration camps during the Holocaust. Interviews were tape-recorded and later transcribed. Results showed earlier experiences influenced food attitudes. The most common themes were: 1) Difficulty throwing food away - even when spoiled; 2) Storing excess food; 3) Craving a certain food; 4) Difficulty standing in line for food; and 5) Anxiety when food is not readily available. Sub-themes included healthy eating and empathy for those currently suffering from hunger. Fourteen (56%) fast for religious holidays, but 7 (28%) said they already had “fasted enough.” Dietitians and others are encouraged to evaluate food service programs to minimize uncomfortable food-related situations for Holocaust survivors.

Surviving the Holocaust : experiences of emigration, deportation and forced labour

Strachan, Gareth J. January 2001 (has links)
This is a study of survival and the 'Final Solution', taking its perspective from over One hundred-and-fifty eyewitness Jewish testimonies from the Wiener Library Archive. The importance of the victims' perspective is clear in that the majority of historiography uses a Nazi perspective in its analysis, leaving the Jews to tell of their experiences in separate autobiographies. In this way, the archive has largely been ignored by historians, yet provides some challenging insights into the three central aspects of the Holocaust of emigration, deportation, and forced labour. These aspects serve as the framework for analysis and focus on four key themes of survival. Firstly, the awareness of Jews as to the true nature of the Nazi regime. Secondly, how these Jews were treated by European non-Jews who have often been criticized in secondary literature for being anti-Semitic. Thirdly, how the various German regions were inconsistent in dealing with European Jews; sometimes indifferent to the low status of Jews in the Nazi hierarchy and other times imposing extensive and vicious procedures to further the policy of making Germany Judenfrei. Fourthly, the extent of pure luck in saving many Jews from the death centres. Ultimately, this study sets out both to analyse these four key themes individually and to discover how they influenced survival in combination. This will demonstrate the complexity of everyday existence in the Holocaust and how adapting to it often required more than just a single moment of adjustment to its severity.

Caregivers' perceived enablers of and barriers to adherence to home exercise programmes in stroke survivors

Scorrano, Maryke January 2017 (has links)
A research report submitted to the Faculty of Health Sciences, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Science in Physiotherapy Johannesburg, 2017 / This was a qualitative study design using in-depth caregiver interviews. Ethical clearance was applied for at the University of the Witwatersrand and permission was also obtained from hospital management where the study took place before the commencement of the research project. Interviews were conducted with the caregivers of patients discharged from the hospital where the study took place, who met the inclusion criteria. The interviews took place at the hospital three months post discharge. Verbal and written consent was obtained from all the stroke survivors and caregivers for participation and audio recording of the interviews. The researcher collected all the demographic data from the stroke survivors including BI score. The in-depth interview was conducted by the researcher using an interview schedule. The interview was informal, with open- ended questions, carried out in a conversational style in the participants’ choice of language Afrikaans, English or Setswana. Initially the interview started with structured questions and probing questions followed as necessary for more information or clarification thereof. Audio records and field notes were made during the interview by the researcher. The audio records were transcribed and translated word for word afterwards by the researcher. The data was analysed by the researcher and a second analyser using the general inductive approach and consisted of five main steps. Results: Seven interviews were conducted. The average age of the stroke survivors was 55.8 (±15.03) years, four were female and three were male, five had right sided strokes and two left sided. The average BI score was 47.1%. The average age of the caregivers was 47.8 years (±13.96) years, five were female and two were male all of them were closely related family members. Three were unemployed, two self-employed, one employed and one a pensioner. The most common enablers of adherence to home exercise programmes are: self –motivation, external motivation from friends and family, daily routine, spirituality, carers’ ‘attitudes and desire’ and knowledge. The most common barriers of adherence to home exercise programmes are: general health issues, other responsibilities, lack of family and social support, caregiver burden and stress, low self-efficacy and mood, and fear of falling. Conclusion: It is evident from this study that adherence to home exercise programmes is multifactorial and does not only relate to the stroke survivor alone. Caregivers have a lot of responsibilities and experience emotional strain and burden and this has an influence on stroke survivors’ adherence to home exercise programmes as they rely upon caregivers for assistance. When addressing adherence both the stroke survivor and the caregivers needs to be considered. Being aware of the potential enablers and barriers of adherence to home exercise programmes can give health care professionals insight in how to optimise adherence and possibly improve functional ability and the quality of life of stroke survivors. / MT2017

An investigation into the coping mechanisms of survivors of domestic violence

Gumede, Sinqobile Angelica January 2014 (has links)
A dissertation submitted to the Faculty of Arts in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Arts (Clinical Psychology) in the Department of Psychology at the University of Zululand, South Africa, 2014 / Domestic violence is a global issue, and it is affecting many people of different cultures and backgrounds around the world. South Africa is one of the countries which are highly affected by various forms of violence. Different people are using different coping mechanism in dealing with violence in general. This study investigates the coping mechanisms of survivors of domestic violence. It looks at the various coping mechanisms that each survivor employs to deal with such experience. This study employed qualitative research design and the target population were women. A sample of ten participants was recruited from the Empangeni Magistrate’s Court, and they all participated voluntarily. Only participants who had been involved in domestic violence for at least six months were asked to participate in the study, and those women who had taken the step of going to court and reporting the matter, or laying charges. The process of getting participants was a challenge and many survivors were reluctant to participant in the study. To collect data, semi structured interviews were used and during the interview a tape recorder was used and content analysis was used to analyses the data. The findings of this research indicated the following: survivors of domestic violence view it as physical abuse. It seems most survivors have experienced this type of abuse. Others indicated that it is verbal and emotional abuse and extramarital affairs that affect them. To them they are other forms of domestic violence, and they have experienced them in their relationships. The lack of communication, sexual needs and controlling behaviour were also indicated to have been experienced by survivors of domestic violence in this study. As regards the second and third questions, which focused on coping mechanisms, survivors of domestic violence indicated to have used problem focused strategies as a way of coping. They break the silence by reporting the matter to court, and claiming a protection order. Some participants are religious, and they pray to God. Some women, though, seemed to use negative coping strategies, such as conditioning themselves, tolerating the violence and keeping silent. In conclusion, it seems like there is still a great deal to be done in terms of educating the society and empowering victims of domestic violence. It is then recommended that the methodology to be changed by researchers on the same topic and there is also a need to educate community and empowerment to the survivors of domestic violence. The media can also play a role in broadening the awareness of domestic violence.
