    Abstract:

    As climate changes, coastal homeowners are potentially crucial actors in reducing the risks to property and human life from rising seas and increased hurricane activity. Absent strict, enforceable regulations mandating retrofitting of existing homes or major changes in homeowner insurance requirements, coastal resilience in a changing climate will largely reflect private, voluntary decisions of millions of individuals. However, research is scarce on the current risk level of U.S. coastal home…

    Mastery Enhancement Therapy Improves Self-Efficacy, Depression, and Adjustment for Cancer Patients

    Raymond C. Nairn Thomas V. Merluzzi

    University of Notre Dame

    Mastery Enhancement Therapy (MET), which was developed by the authors, integrates solution focused therapy (Lindforss & Magnusson, 1997), self-regulation theory (Carver & Scheier, 1998), and self-efficacy theory (Bandura, 1997). We hypothesized that cancer patients who received MET would improve self-efficacy for coping wi…

    Abstract:

    Abstract This study investigated the effectiveness of a treatment, based on self-regulation theory, to enhance the coping self-efficacy of persons with cancer. The intervention, which is called Mastery Enhancement Therapy (MET), is based on Solution Focused Therapy. MET focuses on mastery experiences to improve the participants’ self-efficacy for coping. The participants, who volunteered for the study, were selected based their less-than-average coping self-efficacy scores and were randomly a…

    Abstract:

    Galvanic replacement reactions are widely used in the synthesis of bimetallic nanoshells. Essential to these syntheses is the design of template materials with electrochemical potentials that are low enough to facilitate the replacement of a wide variety of metals. While Cu is an attractive template from this standpoint, it has only rarely been used due to its propensity for oxidation and the associated difficulties in achieving chemically stable colloids. Here, a synthetic scheme is demonstr…
