Psychodynamic Inquiry into World Events: Approaches to Validity and Credibility
WILLIAM R. MEYERS

This article sets forth and develops further some of the ideas in my recent book, Social Science Methods for Psychodynamic Inquiry: The Unconscious on the World Scene (Palgrave Macmillan, 2015), and I have drawn liberally from that work in this exposition. It argues for the use of social science methods and concepts to improve the validity and credibility of psychodynamically- informed analyses of ‘irrational’ world events.

What Predicts Attitudes toward Policies Affecting Undocumented Immigrant Children and Youth? Patterns in Demographic and News Consumption
ERIN SIBLEY, KALINA BRABECK & JANA SLADKOVA

 This paper explores U.S. public opinion toward three proposed policies affecting undocumented immigrant children and youth: the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), and policies toward unaccompanied minors. Multinomial logit regressions were used to explore the associations among demographic characteristics, news consumption habits, and attitudes toward these policies. Results indicated that younger, more educated respondents, later generation respondents, Hispanics, and those who utilize liberal media sources tend to have more sympathetic views toward policies that would provide relief and support to undocumented immigrant youth. Results are discussed in the context of related existing immigration and child and family laws, as well as long-term integration and outcomes for these children and youth.
