Adverse Childhood Experiences and Forensic Typologies: Getting Specific about Trauma among Institutionalized Youth

Description: Article on Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). Utilizing data from 3382 institutionalized delinquents in Texas, logistic regression models indicated multiple associations between ACEs and forensic typologies in both adjusted and unadjusted models, with sexual abuse and physical abuse emerging as the most consistent and robust predictors. Supplemental sensitivity models confirmed the associations between sexual abuse and physical abuse among youth who fit multiple forensic typologies. Models fared poorly at identifying youth who are engaged in fire setting. Implications for total and singular ACEs are discussed, along with how those relate to more clinically meaningful, forensic forms of juvenile delinquency.

Collaborative Research: Place Attachment in Mitigation and Recovery: A Mixed Methods Study of Residential Adjustment Following Wildfires

Description: Data management plan for the grant, "Collaborative Research: Place Attachment in Mitigation and Recovery: A Mixed Methods Study of Residential Adjustment Following Wildfires." This study focuses on understanding how place attachment influences the decisions people make after disasters, specifically residential decisions about where they live and whether they invest in measures that reduce their risk to future disasters. Using three California counties as study sites, and building on a pilot study in these same, wildfire-affected communities, the research team uses photovoice method and phenomenological analyses to develop a deep, contextually grounded understanding of the role of place attachment in residential decisions.

A neurobiology of learning beyond the declarative non-declarative distinction

Description: This article provides a literature review examining declarative and non-declarative forms of learning in neuroscience and psychology. The authors conclude that traditional taxonomy that distinguishes between neural systems supporting declarative and non-declarative forms of learning may be inadequate, as experimental and theoretical work suggests that other criteria may be more useful in categorizing the role of neural structures involved in learning such as the hippocampus and the basal ganglia.
