Facilitating children's transition to school from families with complex support needs /

by Docket, Sue | Charles Sturt University. Research Institute for rofessional Practice, Learning and Education | Perry, Bob | Kearney, Emma | et al.

Publisher: Wagga Wagga, N.S.W. Charles Sturt University. Research Institute for Professional Practice, Learning and Education 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography pp. 34-36Summary: This report reinforces the importance of the transition to school for children from families with complex support needs. For all children and families, but particularly for those with complex support needs, the transition to school is a time of both opportunity and vulnerability. Families with complex support needs are those experiencing multiple challenges related to children, parents or the whole family. These could encompass poverty, unemployment, ill health, substance abuse, experiences of violence or trauma, poor educational outcomes, truancy, behavioural problems, isolation and/or responding to family members with disabilities or special education needs. The combination of challenges presents a range of stresses for these families.Availability: (1)

Financial stress and asymmetric financial decisions /

by Weller, Christian E | University of Massachusetts-Amherst. Political Economy esearch Institute | Helburn, Amy B.

Publisher: Amherst, Mass. University of Massachusetts-Amherst. Political Economy Research Institute 2010Description: PDF.Other title: University of Massachusetts-Amherst. Political Economy.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: December 2010 Bibliography : p. 22-26Summary: Building wealth requires saving, borrowing, and investing. These decisions may depend on stress due to the lack of financial security (low financial assets). Stress should influence personal responses -emotional, behavioral, and cognitive - that in turn could determine financial decisions. The link between stress and financial decisions could be asymmetric, so that fewer financial assets result in larger absolute financial decisions than more assets. We first divide households between stressed (financially insecure) and not stressed (financially secure) ones, using a threshold regression. Comparatively little assets divide stressed and not stressed households. We then show that low levels of financial assets have a larger adverse effect on personal responses among stressed households than among not stressed ones. Personal responses, though, systematically determine financial decisions, such that more stress and lower personal responses lead to a more short-term focus in financial decisions. These linkages between stress, personal responses, and financial decisions indeed give rise to an asymmetric effect. The absolute effect of a stock price decrease of 30%, for instance, is 28% larger than the effect of a 30% stock price increase. Exogenous asset shocks could result in a reduced focus on long-term wealth building among households, because of the asymmetric effect of financial stress.Availability: (1)

How are youth homelessness, early school leaving and risky behaviours connected amongst 13-16 year olds? /

by Fehring, Heather | Victoria. Department of Education and Early Childhood evelopment | Shacklock, Geoff | Crowhurst, Michael.

Publisher: [Melbourne, Vic.] The Department 2008Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: 23rd April 2008 Bibliography : p. 9-19Summary: The co-morbidity, or the co-occurrence and/or interconnectedness, for 13-16 year olds of homelessness leading to early school leaving leading to risky behaviours and the reverse, risky behaviours leading to early school leaving and then homelessness is a reality for Australian society. The risk trajectory, i.e. one risk factor reinforcing another leading to an escalation of disadvantage is a well established fact. Furthermore the magnitude of this problem has recently been highlighted by the April 2008 Australian Homeless Youth Report. This paper examines the relationship amongst the three factors of homelessness, early school leaving and risky behaviours and identifies some of the key issues and considerations involved.Availability: (1)

National community attitudes towards violence against women survey 2009 /

by Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and ndigenous Affairs.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs 2009Description: PDF.Summary: The survey was conducted by the Victorian Health Promotion Foundation (VicHealth), in partnership with the Australian Institute of Criminology and the Social Research Centre, on behalf of the Australian Government. It was conducted with a broad cross-section of the Australian community, with approximately 10,000 people participating. The survey included 16 and 17-year-olds with parental consent, telephone interviews with 2,500 members of the Italian, Greek, Chinese, Vietnamese and Indian communities and face-to-face interviews with 400 Indigenous Australians. Results show that since 1995, when the last survey was conducted, understanding of domestic and sexual violence and its impacts has broadened amongst the Australian community. Fewer Australians condone violence, but there is still work to be done.Availability: No items available

Brotherhood of St Laurence (unpub.) 2000Description: PDF; 12p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2000Summary: In the past the Brotherhood has not contributed to the debate around public policy responses to the harm associated with either legal or illegal drug use, knowing that there are others more qualified to do so and that some church-based agencies have given disproportionate attention to alcohol and other drug issues as social problems. The evidence from our services on the impacts of substance abuse on the people we serve, and on the communities we share, have prompted this submission.Availability: Items available for reference: BSL Archives (1).

The anatomy of absenteeism /

by Markussen, Simen | Institute for the Study of Labor | Roed, Knut | R geberg, Ole J | Gaure, Simen.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2009Description: PDF.Other title: Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA). Discussion paper ;.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: Based on comprehensive administrative register data from Norway, we examine the determinants of sickness absence behavior; in terms of employee characteristics workplace characteristics, panel doctor characteristics, and economic conditions. The analysis is based on a novel concept of a worker's steady state sickness absence propensity, computed from a multivariate hazard rate model designed to predict the incidence and the duration of sickness absence for all workers. Key conclusions are i) that most of the cross-sectional variation in absenteeism is caused by genuine employee heterogeneity; ii) that the identity of a person's panel doctor has a significant impact on absence propensity; iii) that sickness absence insurance is frequently certified for reasons other than sickness; and iv) that the recovery rate rises enormously just prior to the exhaustion of sickness insurance benefits.Availability: (1)
