Ghynecee' Temple


I would like to thank my mentor, Dr. Kaleen Islam-Zwart, for her mentorship over the past year. She has dedicated much of her time to helping me conduct and develop my skills as a researcher. She has been an excellent mentor and I am extremely grateful!


Ghynecee' Temple is a senior and psychology major at Eastern Washington University. Her future educational goal is to pursue a PhD in counseling psychology with an emphasis in women's issues. Her McNair internship research project is entitled: Trauma history as a predictor of HIV- risk behaviors in a sample of incarcerated women. In the future she hopes to work with adolescent to young women as well as women within the prison system.

2011 TRiO McNair Research Internship-Trauma History as a Predictor of HIV Risk Behaviors in a Sample of Incarcerated Women
Temple, Ghynecee' M., (Kayleen Islam-Zwart), Department of Psychology, Eastern Washington University, Washington

Literature links trauma and HIV-risk behavior, but little research focuses on incarcerated women specifically.  This study investigated the impact of trauma history type (e.g., physical vs. sexual, child vs. adult) on HIV risk behavior. Seventy-six incarcerated women participated in an interview and completed a packet of questionnaires. Mean age was 30.61 years (SD = 8.30); 82% were white, non-Hispanic. Women were grouped based on responses to a personal data sheet questionnaire assessing child and adult physical and sexual victimization.  It was expected that women without trauma history would engage in significantly less HIV-risk behaviors than women with physical or sexual abuse history. Second, it was expected women abused as children would be more likely to engage in high risk HIV behaviors than women abused as adults. Additionally, it was anticipated women who experienced both child and adult abuse histories would engage in more risky behaviors than women who were abused exclusively as children or adults. Finally, it was expected women who were sexually abused were more likely to engage in high-risk HIV behaviors than women physically abused or not at all.
