According to motivational interviewing approach, helping clients explore and resolve ambivalence would be a way to elicit behavioral change. One of the countertransference issues experienced as the therapist in this case was the fact that my father was an alcoholic and also abused my mother. Resulting in similar family dynamics as those demonstrated in the family in treatment. For example, the presence of these countertransference issues might have impeded the ability to treat the family especially the father because at one point I also experienced resentfulness towards my father and for that reason I believe my intervention was somehow biased. The way I managed the countertransference issues was by referring the father to individual therapy to address his drinking problems.

Since they aren’t graduating and they go into the world without knowing what to do and since the unemployment rate is down they will go to drinking. The last thing that they stated was the fact that Native Americans don’t have medical insurance or access to health care so it makes it hard for them to get the help they need and if they are in pain then they can turn to alcohol to forget about the pain. “Unlike other cultures that have ingested alcohol for thousands of years, the relationship between indigenous Americans and alcohol is relatively new” (Alcohol: It 's Different For Native Americans). I find this a good problem because it makes sense they have built up a higher tolerance and they end up being addicted to them. There are many issues out there but
After reading both texts, I have learned that if you are a parent, you have to open your eyes and understand what is going on with your child if they are feeling down or depressed. I also learned that if you are a child, you have to recognize what your parents are trying to do for you, like Izzy’s mom is graduating so both of them can live a better life. The only question that is still on my mind is, if both children had both their mom and dad with them, would they still feel like they were being neglected and

Sooner or later, different scares people. Society has made an effect on every person, it could affect you positively or negatively. Mildred, Montag’s wife, in the book Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury, is not the world’s best wife. Society has brought her down to this level because the community does not want the civilians to be thinking for themselves. It is as if the generation is being controlled with what they are able to say, or even do.
Moral conservatism believes that people have natural tendencies to behave in an antisocial way, so it is up to the state to provide religious training and traditional practices to maintain the social well-being. The majority of people who live in Mott Haven are broken families, because of all the issues. Which means that if poor families were to be relocated, they may end up as a broken family. Moral conservatism would be against the relocations because of this reason they do not want the family to be broken up and would try to prevent it from falling apart. In the article, there is a section talks about how women within the community become infuriated with the phrase broken family structure.
treatment plans, and are forced to give up autonomy (Williams 2012). Ageism is often a part of the psychology of older patients themselves and their families, and can have untoward effects on medical outcomes by underestimating the capacities of older people. Negative elder bias continues to be socially acceptable and bears impact on the ways in which younger people interact with them. Different tones of voice, speaking slower or more loudly are methods often employed when younger people communicate with older adults. This behavior can be seen as demeaning, and the elderly see the message it sends as one of devaluing them (Williams 2012).
His mother was especially guilty of this and made it worse by using and modeling maladaptive regulation strategies. This probably aided Christopher’s development of high emotional reactivity and his tendency to engage in aggressive behaviors. Unlike Siobhan, her mother and father did not provide Christopher ways of coping that enabled Christopher to ease his anxiousness and his hypersensitivity without the need to engage in maladaptive
In the case an alcoholic might be treated using the biopsychosocial model, he will not be asked to practice total abstinence only. Considering the biological and the psychological factors, his family history would be included in the treatment plan. If there is any history of alcoholism in the family, then the alcoholic was predisposed or might have been psychologically affected by the alcoholic parent behaviors. His current family situation (going through a divorce) might also be a cause of his drinking. The treatment plan would include counseling sessions where the patient could talk about how he was affected by his family’s situation and why the need of drinking took over his life.
To my understanding, AA is a fellowship composed of men and woman seeking a common goal to combat alcoholism through abstinence and the only requirement for AA membership is a desire to stop drinking.

but they think of bulimia as something they can control. As stated in the documentary, as soon as the bulimic gets sucked into the bulimia, they lose the control and are “at its mercy”. My mother confirmed this and mentioned that she would be upset with anyone who tried to take her habit of binging and purging—her control— away from
18 year olds are allowed to vote, this is something that directly impacts the future of the United States and everyone in it, but they are not allowed to drink alcoholic beverages. An 18 year old can enlist in the military, but he/she is not allowed to drink alcohol? This is a country you can die for before you are allowed to drink alcohol in it. In conclusion, if the legal age of adulthood is 18, then the legal drinking age should be 18, period. In conclusion, lowering the MLDA will promote and teach more responsible drinking, the three year learning period will cut down on underage drinking, and it makes the most sense because the legal age of adulthood is 18.
