“Corporate Rebranding: Understanding Managerial Motivations via Controlled Messaging

Companies are under constant pressure to maintain customer authenticity and face unrelenting competition in the market from other brands who strive to gain consumers’ attention. A brand’s corporate name can break through the visual clutter and noise to create an up-to-date brand identity. While in the past, companies may have preserved the same brand name for years or even decades, now companies regularly renew their brand names. The balance between refreshing the brand and maintaining the existing brand is of critical strategic importance. Prior research has focused on theoretical frameworks for corporate rebranding that go beyond mere administrative necessity; however, there is an opportunity to empirically explore the internal managerial conditions that provoke corporate rebranding. This research, in its early stages of development, examines the antecedents of corporate rebranding efforts.

Deborah Goldring is an assistant professor of marketing in the School of Business Administration at Stetson University. She teaches both undergraduate and graduate courses in marketing. She has more than 20 years of leadership experience as a marketing executive with small- and medium-sized businesses in industries including healthcare, manufacturing, technology and professional services. Dr. Goldring earned her Ph.D. in marketing from Florida Atlantic University.

Exploration and Expansion of Mental Health Services in Bhutan

In 1972, Bhutan, a small Buddhist country nestled in the Himalaya Mountains, operationalized the concept of Gross National Happiness in the GNH Index. Two of the nine domains of GNH are health (physical and mental) and psychological well-being. Psychological well-being includes quality of life, life satisfaction, and spirituality. To address these domains and to meet the growing demand, Bhutan invited United States counselors to assist in responding to the increasing mental health problems, social and family issues, and school and career guidance needs. Leila Roach completed her second appointment in Bhutan while working on her 2018 Summer Grant with the National Board of Certified Counselors International (NBCC-I) and the Bhutan Ministry of Health at the Jigme Dorji Wangchuck National Referral Hospital (JDWNRH) in the capital city of Thimphu. In this presentation, she will talk about her experiences as a mental health provider, trainer, and supervisor including: the current structure of healthcare in Bhutan; the range of identified mental health and family/social concerns; cross-cultural counseling issues including the intersection of mental health, culture and religion; and areas for future research.

Leila Roach earned her Ph.D. in counselor education from the University of Central Florida. She coordinates the marriage, couple and family counseling program. She is a licensed marriage and family therapist, a licensed mental health counselor, an approved supervisor for mental health counselors in the state of Florida and a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC). Leila has 22 years experience counseling children, adolescents, adults, couples and families, including members of the deaf community, in a variety of settings. She has advanced training in play therapy, couples counseling and disaster mental health. Some of her research interests include wellness in counseling and counselor education, the personal and professional development of counseling students, and spirituality in counseling. She holds professional membership in several professional organizations including the American Counseling Association and the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, and is active on the national, state, and local level. She presents at local, state, regional, national, and international conferences.

Psychometric Evaluation of the Self-Objectification Beliefs and Behaviors Scale in College Men

According to objectification theory, repeated experiences of sexual objectification socialize women in Westernized cultures to engage in self-objectification, taking on an observer’s perspective when they think about their own bodies and equating their bodies with who they are as people (Fredrickson & Roberts, 1997). Self-objectification is linked to a number of negative consequences, including body image disturbance, disordered eating, depression, and sexual dysfunction (see Tiggemann, et al., 2010 for a review). A central challenge in the study of objectification theory has been problems with the measurement of self-objectification. In 2017, along with Stacey Tantleff-Dunn of Rollins College, I published the Self-Objectification Beliefs and Behaviors Scale (SOBBS), a new measure of self-objectification for women. In this presentation, I will share the results of a study examining the utility of the SOBBS for measuring self-objectification in men, including the results of measurement invariance testing, which sheds light on similarities and differences in the ways women and men experience self-objectification and its consequences. I will then discuss how findings from this scale development work can inform the debate about whether objectification theory applies to men.

Danielle Lindner earned her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of Central Florida in 2014 after completing her predoctoral internship at James A. Haley Veterans Hospital in Tampa, Florida. Her clinical interests include body image and eating disorders, health behavior change, and mindfulness-based interventions. Lindner’s primary research interests lie within the area of body image, eating disorders and obesity. Her research integrating objectification theory and social comparison theory to explain the development of body image disturbance and disordered eating was recognized by the Obesity and Eating Disorders Special Interest Group of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies. Lindner is excited to continue studying body image at Stetson University and looks forward to mentoring undergraduate students in research.

Teaching Squares: Class visits

For those of you in a Teaching Square, you have hopefully scheduled your class visits by now. You are looking forward to when your colleagues will be observing your teaching and when you will have the opportunity to observe your colleagues’ teaching. Remember that Teaching Squares are intended to promote self-reflection, not peer evaluation. I hope you can approach the experience in a spirit of appreciation, and even celebration, of the important teaching work that you and your colleagues do.
