  • An Application of CHAT Analysis to a Community-Based Action Team

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Willa Casstevens, Kim Stansbury
      Abstract: This study applies cultural historical activity theory (CHAT) to a community-based racial equity and social justice action group in the American South. The community action group is referred to as a “team” by participants and by its host community. The CHAT framework applied incorporates Vygotsky’s mediated action triangle and holds that learning can occur within any activity system. Using CHAT, it is possible to clarify points of tension that occurred within the action team during the community-based team’s first year of development. Reflecting on points of tension within the CHAT framework supported appropriate modifications to the team’s development. This application of the CHAT framework demonstrates ways CHAT could be applied to support leadership assessment and constructive follow-up on areas of tension in a community group, thereby contributing to group maintenance and ongoing well-being. Keywords: community action group, racial equity, social justice, CHAT

  • Higher education peer mentoring programme to promote student community
           using Mobile Device Applications

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Anna Bussu, Sam Burton
      Abstract: This paper presents an Italian peer mentoring programme implemented by second year undergraduate students (peer mentors) to support first years (mentees). The aim of the peer mentoring was to promote student community building and endorse active learning. We recruited 19 mentors and 32 mentees into the programme. Data was extracted through the use of semi-structed questionnaires, which were exposed to qualitative analysis. Peer mentors decided to implement their peer mentoring activities using Mobile Device Applications [MDA]. A qualitative content analysis was employed to evaluate student’s perception. Our findings suggest that students were satisfied with the adoption of MDA to foster active learning for, and community building between, undergraduate students. However, participants have highlighted criticisms and improvements.

  • Epistemological ruptures: Digital presence and group work

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Catherine Phillips, Anita Aenishaenslin
      Abstract: The Covid-19 pandemic has been an epistemological rupture for social work. Research is beginning to examine and articulate the practice knowledge that has arisen as a result of the pandemic. This article is based on a social work placement at a community-based, rural hospice, that occurred during the Covid-19 pandemic. This article focuses on virtual social work and group work, and discusses ethics, the digital divide, and social presence.

  • Considering the rules of brainstorming in untrained idea generating groups

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: David Dryden Henningsen, Mary Lynn Henningsen
      Abstract: Brainstorming (Osborn, 1957), as an idea generating technique, is widely used in businesses and organizations despite evidence that it fails to produce more ideas than non-interacting groups (e.g., Mullen, Johnson, & Salas, 1991). Past tests of the technique employ comparisons of groups instructed to follow the rules of brainstorming (i.e., focus on quantity, free-wheeling, non-evaluation, and piggy-backing) to groups without such instructions. In the current study, the connection between the activities proposed in the rules of brainstorming and idea generation are examined.  The perceived occurrence of these activities are examined in untrained idea generating groups to assess how they influence idea generation. 188 participants (61% men, 39% women), performed an idea generation task (i.e., the typewriter task) and assessed perceptions of the occurrence of the activities highlighted by the brainstorming rules in the group discussion. Overall, perceptions of brainstorming rules influence the number of ideas generated with piggy-backing emerging as a significant predictor variable.

  • “A place where I am always welcome”: A thematic analysis of what
           belonging to Alcoholics Anonymous means to its members

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Lisa Ogilvie, Julie Prescott, Jerome Carson
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to explore what belonging to Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) means to its international membership. The aim is to gain a collective view of the opinions held by those accessing the services offered by AA globally. This paper focuses on the study of AA entirely from the perspective of its members, without being attentive to the AA approach to recovery, or the 12-step programme it advocates. An online survey was distributed as a link on Facebook groups accessed by members of AA. Responses (N=182) were received from members accessing AA services in 11 different countries. These were analysed using thematic analysis. The findings convey a positive message for what belonging to AA means, demonstrating that members accomplish more than sobriety and sustained abstinence. They develop a positive outlook, feel connected and accepted into a unique community, that offers a platform for achieving personal and spiritual growth.
