Adult Education to Help Reduce Child Sexual Abuse: Developing Novel Classroom and Online Approaches Designed to Change Knowledge, Attitudes, and BehavioursDownload
Child sexual abuse (CSA) is common and individuals who experience CSA have higher rates of psychopathology and higher risk of medical, psychological, behavioural, and sexual disorders than those who have not been sexually abused. Adults who interact with children are in ideal positions to reduce...
Most story-based games today have manually-scripted non-player characters (NPCs) and the scripts are usually simple and repetitive since it is time-consuming for game developers to script each character individually. ScriptEase, a publicly-available author-oriented developer tool, attempts to...
Broiler breeders require feed restriction to maintain high production rates of hatching eggs. However, feed restriction, conventionally managed during the rearing period through skip-a-day feeding, creates welfare concerns as broiler breeders exhibit behaviours indicative of hunger and...
Tactile and proprioceptive input provided by weighted vests is thought to decrease sensory modulation dysfunction in children with autism. This study investigated behavioural and physiological effects of weighted vests for ten children with autism, ages 3 to 10, in a classroom setting. A...
Concrete deep beams with small shear span-to-depth (a/d) ratios are common elements in structures. However, there are few experimental results on the behaviour of FRP reinforced concrete deep beams and no specific modelling techniques exist in design codes for such members. The objectives of this...
Interactions between police and individuals suffering from mental illness are very frequent. Police forces are regularly first responders to those with mental illness. Unfortunately, on occasion interactions are violent and sometimes fatal. Despite this, training police how to best interact with...
Personality has been documented in diverse taxa and growing attention is being directed towards the ecological implications of consistent variation in individual behaviour. These implications include the rise in habituation behaviour by wildlife living in human-disturbed areas, which has resulted...
Exploring Minor Hockey Players' Knowledge About and Attitudes Toward Concussion: Implications for PreventionDownload
Concussions in ice hockey are a serious public health concern, however too many athletes fail to recognize or report their symptoms. A survey was developed to assess minor hockey players’ concussion knowledge, attitudes, and reporting behaviour, as little is known from their perspective. Male...
Identifying seasonal Lake Sturgeon (Acipenser fulvescens) movement patterns and habitat selection in the South Saskatchewan River BasinDownload
Lake Sturgeon (Acipenser fulvescens Rafinesque 1817) have experienced population declines throughout their range. In Alberta, low density age-class distributions, irregular recruitment, critically low spawning potential ratios and other factors led to a 2007 designation of “Threatened” for this...
