Hello, my name is Billie Joe Rogers, I am a graduate student at Simon Fraser University and an Ojibwe member of Aamjiwnaang First Nation. I am a PhD student at SFU in the department of Psychology, and am conducting a study to better understand the needs of Aboriginal youth and families living with FASD.
I am looking to hear from those who can speak about the needs of Aboriginal youth and families living with FASD – the survey is open to anyone in BC.
The purpose of the survey is to learn about the support needs of Aboriginal youth and families living with FASD. The survey will ask about the top needs in different areas (e.g., school needs, needs in the assessment process), what services are available and what services are missing, but needed in your community.
The information you provide in this survey will be used to inform an evaluation of a current project working to support Aboriginal youth and families living with FASD. Because the goal is that this survey will contribute to a comprehensive assessment of needs, the questions are mostly qualitative and it is expected that the survey will take approximately 60 minutes to complete.
 
For participation in the survey, your email will be entered into a draw for one of these prizes:
  1. Grand prize: a $250 Apple gift card
  2. Second prize: one of two $100 Apple gift cards
  3. Third prize: one of nine $50 Apple gift cards.
The survey is available now, and will close on June 15, 2016. The survey link is:  http://fluidsurveys.com/surveys/reciprocal-consulting/needs-assessment-supporting-aboriginal-youth/
I have also attached a pdf invitation to participate in the survey.
Thank you for your help in gathering this important information!
Thank you,

CFP – 35th International Human Science Research Conference (IHSRC). Due: Feb 16, 2016

Posted on Updated on

A CALL FOR PAPERS

International Human Science Research Conference (IHSRC)

July 3 to 7, 2016, uOttawa

This is a call for papers and workshops for the 35th International Human Science Research Conference (IHSRC) which will be held from July 3 to 7, 2016 at the University of Ottawa. Deadline for submissions is February 16, 2016.

 

Please see the conference website for information about the keynote and invited speakers: http://function2flow.ca/home-7/welcome-to-the-35th-international-human-science-research-conference-ihsrc-uottawa-july-3-7-2016

 

 

To submit a paper or workshop, please see the following link:http://function2flow.ca/ihsrc-2016-registration

 

 

Some background on IHSRC: The estimated number of participants based on previous years is between 125-150. IHSRC is interdisciplinary in nature and attracts delegates from many fields such as education, psychology, medicine, nursing, etc. Some of the most influential scholars that have been keynotes at IHSRC over the years include: Max van Manen, Maxine Green, Madeleine Grumet, Alphonso Lingis (translator of Merleau-Ponty), and Amedeo Giorgi.

The thread that interconnects the participants of IHSRC is the focus on phenomenology as a methodology. The premise of phenomenological research is to search for meaning through a balanced engagement with direct lived experience in a particular domain and careful interrogation mediated by existential modes of questioning. Delegates attending IHSRC are thus primarily interested in mobilizing methodological knowledge that pertains to the practical and philosophic tenets of the methodology of phenomenology. Here are some conference links to see some of our history:

IHSRC 2015, Norway: http://hist.no/ihsrc-15/

IHSRC 2014, Halifax: http://ihsrc.stfx.ca/

IHSRC 2013, Denmark: http://www.ihsrc.aau.dk/

IHSRC 2011, Oxford England: http://www.open.ac.uk/socialsciences/ihsrc2011/
