Analysis of Regional Acutley Elevated Risk (AER) "Situation Tables"
By Callum Stanford, Date of Project Submission: April 2015., Completed for: HKPR Regional HSJCC; Supervising Professor: Sharon Beaucage-Johnson; Trent Community Research Centre, FRSC4890 - Forensic Community-Based Research Project, The purpose of this project was to analyze three regional Situation Tables located in Northumberland, City of Kawartha Lakes and Peterborough. A literature review was conducted to explain the history, working practices and Provincial guidelines of Situation Tables. Data that each regional Situation Table records was analyzed in order to identify trends among the three regions in regards to which human services and justice organizations are most involved and what risk factors are most commonly present. Surveys and interviews were completed to capture the experiences and opinions of individuals who participate at each regional Table and gather their ideas for improvements. Findings include that police services are heavily involved in both the referral process and intervention responses across all three regional Tables. Mental health services are also very commonly involved in the intervention responses as mental health was found to be the most common risk factor discussed and actioned at all three regional Tables. Ideas for improvements such as ensuring a more fulsome understanding of Situation Tables among all members are presented. Additionally, possible missing agencies for each regional Table are suggested based on the survey and interview responses of participating Situation Table members. Potential future research and limitations in this study are also discussed.

Why She Cycles: Building the Case for Community Bike Repair and Bike Education
By Olivia Austin & Melanie Lusted, Completed for: B!KE; Supervising Professor: Carmen Teeple Hopkins; Trent Community Research Centre, WMST 3031H - Doing Feminist Research: Making Social Change, The aim of this project was to learn more about the link between women’s knowledge of bicycle mechanics/repair skills and women’s usage of bicycles. The methods used were a literature review, survey analysis and conducting interviews. In the literature, a gap in cycling habits has been noted between women and men cyclists, with men riding significantly more than women. As well, there is little known about the link between knowledge of bicycle mechanics/repair skills and bike usage. We cannot conclude that there is a relationship between knowledge of bicycle mechanics/repair skills and usage. We found, however, that there were factors that contributed to usage including: purpose(s) for cycling, environmental factors and personal factors, all of which intertwined with social factors such as gender, class and cycling culture. In this report, we have included the literature review, survey analysis and a final interview analysis.
