The Rhetorical Turn to Otherness: Otherwise than Humanism
Ronald C Arnett,Janie Harden Fritz,Annette M Holba
Cosmos and History : the Journal of Natural and Social Philosophy , 2007,
Abstract: While offering a public welcome of communicative participation, a communicative dark side of the moderate Enlightenment project emerged. Moderate Enlightenmentrsquo;s corollary companion to wresting power from a limited few is the staggering sense of confidence in the universal ground of assurance that is ldquo;bad faithrdquo; mdash;we fib to ourselves that we can stand above history and affect the future. Absolute conviction of universal access to truth propels through methodological confidence, undergirding the era of ldquo;the rationalrdquo; pursuit of truth, transporting the individual into an ethereal delusionmdash;that one can stand above the historical moment of engagement and cast judgment. This essay calls into question the common assumption that communication begins with the individual. We offer a critique of this assumption in accordance with radical enlightenment scholarship, calling forth a return to Otherness that renders the construct of individual secondary to that which is met.br /
The interplay between interpersonal dynamics, treatment barriers, and larger social forces: an exploratory study of drug-using couples in Hartford, CT

Substance Abuse Treatment, Prevention, and Policy , 2006, DOI: 10.1186/1747-597x-1-12
Abstract: This exploratory study used in-depth interviews and ethnographic engagement to better understand the relationship between interpersonal dynamics and the treatment experience of ten relatively stable drug-using couples in Hartford, CT. Semi-structured and open-ended qualitative interviews were conducted with each couple and separately with each partner. Whenever possible, the day-to-day realities and contexts of risk were also observed via participant and non-participant observation of these couples in the community. A grounded theory approach was used to inductively code and analyze nearly 40 transcripts of 60–90 minute interviews as well as fieldnotes.This study builds on a concept of complex interpersonal dynamics among drug users. Interpersonal dynamics of care and collusion were identified: couples cared for each other and colluded to acquire and use drugs. Care and collusion operate at the micro level of the risk environment. Treatment barriers and inadequacies were identified as part of the risk environment at the meso or intermediate level of analysis, and larger social forces such as gender dynamics, poverty and the "War on Drugs" were identified at the macro level. Interpersonal dynamics posed problems for couples when one or both partners were interested in accessing treatment. Structural barriers presented additional obstacles with the denial of admittance of both partners to treatment programs which had a sole focus on the individual and avoided treating couples.Detoxification and treatment facilities need to recognize the complex interplay between interpersonal dynamics which shape the treatment experience of couples, and which are also shaped by larger structural dynamics, including barriers in the treatment system. Improvements to the treatment system in general will go a long way in improving treatment for couples. Couples-specific programming also needs to be developed.This exploratory study used in-depth interviews and ethnographic engagement to be
Telling Stories with Blocks: Encouraging Language in the Block Center
Janie Heisner
Early Childhood Research & Practice , 2005,
Abstract: A large body of research documents the positive impact of sociodramatic play on children’s language development. Through the social interaction that takes place during sociodramatic play, children develop the ability to express thoughts in a logical sequence, share ideas about events in which there is not shared context, and develop vocabulary. Previous research on the relationship between sociodramatic play and language development in the preschool setting primarily has been conducted in the dramatic play center. However, some children prefer other activity areas that also are conducive to this beneficial form of play. The block center is one such area. With its open-ended activities and constructive play opportunities, the block center provides an area in which children can use their imagination to create fanciful structures with their friends and then take on roles as they interact with their creations and their peers. The impact of a specific effort to incorporate toys from the block center into shared storybook reading in order to promote sociodramatic play in the block center is discussed in this essay as well as observations and recommendations for promoting more of this important type of interaction throughout the classroom.

Creating Our Identities in Service-Learning and Community Engagement
Susan Harden
Partnerships : A Journal of Service-Learning and Civic Engagement , 2012, DOI: 10.7253/partj.v0i0.435
Abstract: Among my colleagues who have recently published books, the process of finding the right title has been described as a wrestling match between author or editor, and publisher. The publisher wants a catchy title that conveys meaning about the content but compels the buyer to take a second look. Titling is a marketing decision. However for the author, titling is a manifestation of the author’s identity and authenticity. Titling is a personal statement. Often at odds, the commercial experience of the publisher tends to win out, which is pragmatically beneficial to the buyer who is trying to surmise the contents of the book.
Framing and reframing questions of human–environment interactions Исследовательские парадигмы взаимодействия человека и окружающей среды: взгляд сквозь столетие
Carol Harden
Cultural Geography & Geohumanities , 2013,
Abstract: Ways in which geographers have framed research on human–environment interactions have changed over time.This review emphasizes the limitations of previous ways of framing human–environment research and indicatesnew opportunities to be pursued by reframing the research questions. It begins with the research and influenceof W. M. Davis and follows with research framed as environmental determinism, human ecology, naturalhazards, human impacts on the environment, and sustainability. Studies of interactions between people andenvironments are central to geography, but such studies have dominantly been one-sided as a result of the type ofrelationship studied or the perspectives (physical or social) brought by the investigators. Awareness of the natureof nature and the dynamic, interactive behavior of biophysical and human systems has the potential to bringnew perspectives to the traditional human–environment dichotomy. Because many of the world’s importantproblems involve interactions between people and environments, geographers are encouraged to turn theirattention to this core area of the discipline. Research opportunities include studies of the effects of environmentalchange on human populations, including the complex web of interactions and feedbacks involved; studies ofhow environmental services are valued and managed; and other studies that provide knowledge to supportmore sustainable human–environment interactions, especially in an urbanizing world.

Innocent parties or devious drug users: the views of primary healthcare practitioners with respect to those who misuse prescription drugs

Harm Reduction Journal , 2010, DOI: 10.1186/1477-7517-7-21
Abstract: Tape-recorded interviews were conducted with a purposive sample of general practitioners (17), community pharmacists (16) and 'key experts' (18) in New Zealand. Interviews were transcribed verbatim and a thematic analysis undertaken. Participants were offered vouchers to the value of NZ$30 for their participation.A major theme that was identified was that of two different types of patients involved in PDM, as described by participants - the 'abuser' and the 'overuser'. The 'abuser' was believed to acquire prescription medicines through deception for their own use or for selling on to the illicit market, to use the drugs recreationally, for a 'high' or to stave off withdrawal from illicit drugs. 'Overusers' were characterised as having become 'addicted' through inadvertent overuse and over prescribing, and were generally viewed more sympathetically by practitioners. It also emerged that practitioners' attitudes may have impacted on whether any harm reduction interventions might be offered. Furthermore, whilst practitioners might be more willing to offer help to the 'over-user', it seemed that there is a lack of appropriate services for this group, who may also lack a peer support network.A binary view of PDM may not be helpful in understanding the issues surrounding PDM, nor in providing appropriate interventions. There is a need for further exploration of 'over users’ whose needs may not be being met by mainstream drug services, and issues of stigma in relation to ‘abusers’.The use of drugs within society is an emotive issue and continues to garner much attention, politically, socially and within the media. Different drugs, however, are likely to evoke distinct responses depending on their legal status, the perceived level of harm, and - ultimately - how acceptable they are considered within mainstream society. As Room notes in his discussion on stigma [1], social inequality and alcohol and drug use, "psychoactive substance use occurs in a highly charged field of mo
I love you ... and heroin: care and collusion among drug-using couples
Janie Simmons, Merrill Singer
Substance Abuse Treatment, Prevention, and Policy , 2006, DOI: 10.1186/1747-597x-1-7
Abstract: These couples cared for each other similarly to the ways that non-drug-using couples care for their intimate partners. However, most also cared by helping each other avoid the symptoms of drug withdrawal. They did this by colluding with each other to procure and use drugs. Care and collusion in procuring and using drugs involved meanings and social practices that were constituted and reproduced by both partners in an interpersonal dynamic that was often overtly gendered. These gendered dynamics could be fluid and changed over time in response to altered circumstances and/or individual agency. They also were shaped by and interacted with long-standing historical, economic and socio-cultural forces including the persistent economic inequality, racism and other forms of structural violence endemic in the inner-city Hartford neighborhoods where these couples resided. As a result, these relationships offered both risk and protection from HIV, HCV and other health threats (e.g. arrest and violence).A more complex and nuanced understanding of drug-using couples can be tapped for its potential in shaping prevention and intervention efforts. For example, drug treatment providers need to establish policies which recognize the existence and importance of interpersonal dynamics between drug users, and work with them to coordinate detoxification and treatment for both partners, whenever possible, as well as provide additional couples-oriented services in an integrated and comprehensive drug treatment system.Nina Glick-Schiller [1] aptly captured the dehumanization and distortion of relatively stable intimate partnerships among drug-users when she wrote, "While other people have lovers and spouses, drug users have only 'sex partners."' This ethnographic study contributes to a broader, more nuanced portrayal of drug users by describing the interpersonal dynamics of 10 heroin and cocaine-using couples from Hartford, Connecticut. These couples cared for each other similarly to the w
What is happening is real

Abstract: Australia’s history parallels the movement of modernity towards neo-colonialenterprises encapsulated in globalisation, while Australian identity lends itself to thefragmentation inherent in the conflicting discourses of national identification that makeup its history. The psychology derived from this is startlingly apparent in our morerecent history as we battle to come to terms with new and insidious incursions intoIndigenous human rights. The bicentenary year gave Australia an opportunity tohighlight the “coming of age” that emerged from being mature enough to admit thatwhite Australia has a black history. A tension between a utopian notion held by somethat the celebrations marked a time when Australia had reached a coming of age andothers who were ambivalent about the nature of the celebrations has led to a reevaluationof Australian ideas of nationhood. What is Happening is Real is anexploration of the tensions that gave rise to a continuing engagement in the ongoingchallenges that 1988 presented to all Australians.
