World congress symposium

  1. 1. Taking a Global Perspective on the Generation of New Knowledge: Two Case Studies Symposium 9th World Congress September 10, 2015
  2. 2. Symposium Goals • To present an overview of a rationale for incorporating international research. • To discuss cultural differences as they reflect the research process and dissemination of knowledge. • To discuss challenges associated with being inclusive at an international level.
  3. 3. Symposium Goals (cont.) • To discuss how research is defined from an international context. • To brainstorm how research from less represented countries might be included. • Panel presentations will present two case studies that provide examples of incorporating an international perspective while addressing relevant challenges.
  4. 4. Four Participant Learning Objectives 1. To better understand the context for international research. 2. To better understand challenges and opportunities to incorporate the international voice in the generation of new knowledge. 3. To consider how one’s own role might incorporate an international perspective. 4. To consider how research might include more international perspectives.

  6. 6. Understanding the Research Process through a Global Lens Symposium World Congress Columbia, SC September 9-11, 2015 Presenter: Caroline S. Clauss-Ehlers, PhD, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey
  7. 7. Presentation Goals 1. To better understand the rationale for an inclusive, international research agenda 2. To better understand international differences in the research process and how these might potentially limit the international voice in U.S.-peer reviewed journals 3. To explore solutions to fill this gap and promote a more inclusive, global approach to research generation 4. To understand the term cultural humility within an international (and domestic) context.
  8. 8. Rationale for an International Research Lens  The Global Burden of Mental Disorders: An Update from the WHO World Mental Health (WMH) Surveys  Conclusion: “Mental disorders are commonly occurring and often seriously impairing in many countries throughout the world. Expansion of treatment could be cost-effective both from both employer and societal perspectives,” (Retrieved from http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3039289/ )
  9. 9. Rationale for an International Research Lens (cont.)  WHO World Mental Health Survey (WMH) Initiative includes 17 countries throughout the globe to understand epidemiological data cross-nationally, many of which are the first population based studies conducted in their country  Cambridge University Press has published several volumes that reflect cross-national findings (See http://www.cambridge.org/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780521 884198)
  10. 10. Rationale for a Global Perspective: Editor’s Perspective  While the mission of some journals does take an international perspective, others can incorporate initiatives to address the international global status of mental health as documented by the WMH Initiative  Not incorporating this perspective leaves out the worldview and experiences of international communities  In not understanding the experiences of international communities related to mental health issues, we lack a science base from which to consider cross-national prevention and intervention efforts  Cultural humility as an important concept in both international and domestic research and outreach
  11. 11. Given our increasingly global society, understanding the international perspective also helps us understand the domestic realm more fully.
  12. 12. Potential Obstacles in the Publication of International Research Cultural differences with regard to international approaches to research may present structural differences that may potentially limit the publication of international research.
  13. 13. Potential Obstacles in the Publication of International Research: Formatting Issues  For journals written in English, barriers through the written word where English may be a second language  Lack of awareness regarding style guidelines for specific journal  Lack of collaborators to provide support, mentoring, and access
  14. 14. Potential Obstacles in the Publication of International Research: Structural Issues  International differences in approach to research protocol approval  What does it mean to have an IRB?  What does it mean to not have an IRB?
  15. 15. Example 1: Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development  How do we define international research? e.g., Research conducted by U.S. domestic researchers from domestic institutions abroad vs. Research conducted by international scholars from international institutions abroad or even domestically  Development of Leadership Commitment to Provide a Vision and Voice for International Contributions
  16. 16. Recommendations to Incorporate International Scholarship: Step 1 Organizing the Professional Context  Collaborate with the editorial team to conceptualize a working definition of international research  Build infrastructure responsive to international research and practice  Redefine journal guidelines so they are inclusive of an international perspective  Create a journal mechanism through which international research is showcased
  17. 17. Recommendations to Incorporate International Scholarship: Step 2: The JMCD Action Plan that Followed from the Framework  Expanded editorial review board to include expertise in international research from cross-national perspectives  Collaborated with editorial team and professional organizations to re-structure guidelines to be responsive to the parameters of international research from an international perspective  Launching of Global Perspective Section (October 2015) that features international research  Communication about efforts to encourage other international contributions (e.g., journal announcement, website to be updated)
  18. 18. Revised Guidelines that are Responsive to International Institutional Approaches to Research “As JMCD increasingly receives international manuscripts, it is important to emphasize the requirement for ethical treatment of human and animal subjects regardless of possible country/institutional requirements to do so and given that some countries and respective institutions may not require a formal IRB as in the United States. In a country/institution where there is no IRB process in place, it is the author(s) responsibility to comply with the ACA Code of Ethics in terms of how their sample was treated (American Counseling Association, 2014a; American Counseling Association, 2014b; http://www.counseling.org/resources/aca-code-of-ethics.pdf). Authors should also clearly specify in the Methods section the procedures they used to comply with these standards. In addition, author(s) are required to state how they responded to their respective countries/institutions’ requirements (if applicable) regarding the ethical treatment of human subjects and animals. Failure to provide this information may lead to an article being returned to the author(s) without review” (From JMCD Guidelines, Retrieved from http://www.jmcdonline.org/guidelines).
  19. 19. JMCD Announcement From the Editor Global Perspectives With this October 2015 issue, we introduce a new Global Perspectives section of the Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development (JMCD). Global Perspectives will provide a forum for research and applications within an international context. Global Perspectives may include research articles conducted by international scholars in their home countries or research articles conducted by domestic researchers with international study samples. This section will also highlight manuscripts that introduce and advance theoretically and conceptually grounded teaching and applied practices that reflect the experiences of counseling and development globally. The inaugural entry of the Global Perspectives section appears in this issue of JMCD. We welcome international collaborations and contributions from early career to senior scholars and practitioners. The promotion of scholarly work in this series is intended as a win–win experience for series contributors and the JMCD readership. The long-term goals of this series are to facilitate provocative and vibrant across-time conversations, and to further understanding and appreciation of multicultural counseling and development from international perspectives. —Caroline S. Clauss-Ehlers, Editor
  20. 20. Example 2: Developing International Collaboration: Forging Change through the Dissemination of Knowledge
  21. 21. International Outreach The ways scholars collaborate with external groups in mutually beneficial partnerships that are grounded in research and consistent with the role and mission as a comprehensive, public research unit.
  22. 22. Partnerships The power of partnerships allows us to go the distance and accomplish far more together than we could apart. Using the example set forth by the U.S. State Department, Global Partnership Initiative serves three key roles.
  23. 23. Convener Bringing people (scholars) together across different (social sciences) disciplines, sectors and regions to work on shared issues.
  24. 24. Catalyst Kick-starting new solutions through collective action and innovation.
  25. 25. Collaborator Working closely to plan, implement, and realize best practices.
