11, 12 How¬ever, Post-natal depression (PND) is diagnosed in only 50% of the women with prominent symptoms during first year after delivery. On the contrary, untreated PND can cause chronic depression and interferes in mother child bonding and even to the extent of suicide as well as infanticide in rare cases.13 However, it is important to distinguish PND from the “baby blues” that occurs be¬tween three and 10 days after giving birth; and “Post¬natal psychosis” which affects one in 500 women in the first week or so after child birth.4 The present study was conducted with an objective to assess the burden of postpartum depression in a group of Indian women attending a tertiary care teaching hospital using EPDS
Social work is a connection between client and the social worker which requires empathy and a deep understanding of feelings, intentions and thoughts. This understanding is necessary to evaluate the client’s needs and to develop an appropriate strategy for providing assistance (Lundberg 2010). Cultural Competence A major challenge which social workers may face is that many times indigenous clients feel neglected and discriminated by a non-indigenous social worker. The lack of knowledge of Australian Indigenous history and culture is an important factor which creates hurdle in providing assistance to the indigenous clients. Norms, beliefs and ideas incorporated within a culture make communication and interaction easier for people from the same
The neonatal period is the most vulnerable period of human life. A neonate is 500 times more likely to die on the first day of life compared to a child who one month age (30). Similarly, neonatal disease pattern is a sensitive indicator of availability, use, and effectiveness of mother and child health services in the community (31). This indicates that neonatal death is one of the health problems in developing countries and newborn survival has no improvement (32).
They die of pneumonia, malaria, diarrhoea and other diseases. Children from rural and poorer households remain disproportionately affected. Children from the poorest 20% of households are nearly twice as likely to die before their fifth birthday as children in the richest 20%. Maternal mortality is a key indicator of health inequity. Maternal mortality is a health indicator that shows the wide gaps between rich and poor, both between and within countries.
Low birth weight (LBW) is a major public health problem in developing countries including India. The epidemiological observations depicted that infants weighing lesser than 2500 g are approximately 20 times more likely to die than heavier babies, closely associated with the fetal and neonatal mortality and morbidity. 1 It also leads to inhibited growth and cognitive development 1 and also associated with chronic diseases later in life. 2 According to World Health Organization (WHO), definition of “Low birth weight” is birth weight of newborn is 2500gm or less. The term “very low birth weight” refers to birth weight of newborn less than1500gm.
Exploratory Essay How and why is it important to teach cultural awareness and diversity in school? Diversity and cultural awareness holds a lot of weight in shaping children in this country. I can relate to this question on a personal level, therefore I am able to write and research about this easily as well because growing up biracial I have faced a lot of issues that I believe could have been somewhat solved through educating others. It affects me because I see others who are far from culturally diverse and aware and it is apparent when they speak to others and myself. It affects myself when I am forced to be apart of a world where there are so many different people that I cannot avoid, I will have to work with others for the rest of my life.
There are too many middle school-aged children identified as struggling readers who will face challenges that will hinder their matriculation towards receiving a high school diploma. The implications and relevance for middle grade school leadership are many. The findings should be ultimately useful in revising and developing new training programs, policy and procedures for current and future district school leaders. The findings are also beneficial for professional development, integration into existing middle grade principals, lead teachers and non-lead teachers as they engage in behaviors and practices within the reality of leadership
“Final Reflection” Harold Lester, Jr. EXP 105: Personal Dimensions of Education (G301748A) Dr. Gonzalez January 15, 2018 “Final Reflection” Written by: Harold Lester, Jr. Taking this course has taught me how acknowledge and understand the concept of learning, and better understand how it works in order to successful. I believe after learning the concept of learning, I have a better chance on explaining to one who has not yet taken this course. The way that I understand the concept of learning is one taking the responsibility to establish their goals and build skills to help them become an intentional learner, while identifying their weaknesses and strengths. According to the text, “Learning, whether in a classroom, the real
Literacy is a socially constructed concept which is important in shaping a student’s thinking and views, producing high quality of social thinkers and learners which in turn leads to nation development. To nurture the literacy among the students, teachers take into a great account. Literacy has been studied in different conceptual frameworks and was revealed to be subjective to individuals. How a teacher perceive literacy shape their views and beliefs towards it. Teachers’ belief about literacy can be viewed as the teachers’ beliefs “in determining how (they) teach reading and writing” (FalcÃ³n-Huertas, 2006, p. 27).
As a future teacher you want to improve the way history and societal views of Aboriginal and Torres Strait islanders is being taught, to provide a better foundation of study for students. With this in mind creating an activity that did this and was in line with curriculum knowledge and skills was a challenging task and I realized that this
The National Health Performance Authority report shows that the life expectancy of children born in the year 2012 was 84.3 years for girls and 79.9 years for boys, and those who have survived or make it to the age of 65 years in 2012 were likely to live an additional years of 19.1 (for men) and 22.0 (for women). The trends in life expectancy in Australia since the late 1800s has increased by 30 years. In the year 1890 the life expectancy for young boys was 47.2years while for girls was 50.8 years. There is a huge difference in life expectancy of children (infants) by territory and state among Australians. Infants (babies) born in 2012 in the Australian capital region had a longer life expectancy than babies born in any territory and state in Australia (AIHW,
Using the multivariate logistic regression synthesis, it is clear that demographic and social predictors are behind disparities in seeking the services across the vast nation. The CDC abortion surveillance reports that in 2013, a total of 664,435 legal practiced abortions were recorded from their 49 reporting centers. The rate for the same year was 12.5 per 1000 women with the ages 15-44 years while the abortion rate at 200:1000 live births. The black women are 3.75 times more likely to terminate their pregnancy than their white counterparts. About 90% of the abortions occur in the first trimester.
In recent years, there has been an increase in researching and finding solutions to bridge the gap between students from diverse cultural backgrounds. These research and findings can be found in several sources such as Innovative Voices in Education by Eileen Gale Kugler, Educating Immigrant Students in the 21st Century by Xue Lan Rong and Judith Preissle, and Culturally Responsive Teaching by Geneva Gay. Although the Reading and Writing Center’s main purpose is to help students effectively with reading and writing assignments by helping with grammar, mechanics, structure or content, tutors cannot help these students if they are not culturally sensitive. Tutors must be culturally sensitive when helping students because it forms a connection between the student and the tutor; therefore, this makes each individual session more effective. There are several cultural issues that tutors should be aware, which include oral english
As a second grade classroom teacher, I believe it is important for other educators to be aware of culturally responsive teaching which is closely related to multiculturalism. Culturally responsive teaching is pedagogy aware of the importance of considering the students’ culture in their learning. America’s educational system was built on a foundation of inequalities. There were many social and racial injustices in our history of education. These same inequalities are still around in the present day.
