People use these addictions to escape the world they live in, similarly to the way Case has a dependency on drugs. This type of dependency is usually started because people have the feeling of emptiness and are struggling with this feeling, looking for an easy way to feel better. Case was given the opportunity to escape his addiction, but instead Case states, “Thanks, but I was enjoying that dependency” (45). He enjoyed his dependency on drugs and alcohol because it was a form of an escape from his body, a chance to forget about his body slowly deteriorating. As Case gradually weakens he continues to abuse stimulants to help with the loss of energy.
Losing a battle to illness is devastating and utterly heartbreaking. With addiction, it is quite often that people fail and fall into their old habits. Others simply don’t want to be sober. In How to Help Someone with an Opioid Addiction, published by the Chicago Sun Times, the author lists ways for friends and family members to assist in the process of sobriety. But, what if it doesn’t work?
Comparing these beverages to alcohols, the only difference one may be able to identify is that alcohol is not marketed to minors whereas these caffeine-rich products are, which just makes the case worse. Which is also why I strongly think there should be a legal drinking age be imposed on energy drinks. We being the educated individuals that we are, should become more vigilant. Knowledge is power and alerting each other to the possible danger of these beverages is vital. I hope each one of y'all will take back some learning from my speech and try to create awareness and educate others about this matter and think twice before consuming energy drinks.
In fact, we'd hope an alternative explanation would have more value than the disease label, by giving people with addictions something the disease concept lacks: an understanding that is useful for treating the problem. This question has been discussed in Module 1 amongst my cohorts and I with the majority stating addiction was a disease and those few who questioned this, only did so because someone they truly loved became an addict hurting their feelings which in turn clouded their
I found the empty chair technique to be a very cool and facilitating method. I feel that this technique brings the client into present experiences. The client will then be able to experience different aspects of their own conflicts by role playing this empty chair dialogue. I would definitely use this technique with my patients. I strongly feel that any approach that offers a new perspective to the client is a wonderful approach to
The third treatment that has been used a lot is behavioral therapy, and usually there are no real attempts for this therapy even with its great effectiveness. It focuses on making the autistic person’s surrounding environment, convenient, and how he or she is involved in it. In fact, this type of therapy has proved that it can decrease the severity of the symptoms, and it can help the patients to live a better
However, according to Montonen’s Alcohol and the Media, the media believes they are using alcohol topics as a way to teach audiences of the issues at hand (Winett 1997: 358). Montonen disagrees because “‘it creates an illusion that something is being done to address a societal problem’” (Winnett 1997:358); but in reality, the constant exposure is simply making the societal problems worse. The hypodermic needle model, also known as the magic bullet, is known for directly infusing messages to audiences and those messages then are directly accepted due to audience passiveness. The constant viewing of alcohol consumption does not mean audiences are learning from the media, however they begin to believe it is
Being non-directive does not equate to being passive and "getting out of the client's way" in the assumption of letting the client to be self-directing. This misconception had let to considerable failure in counseling (Carl Rogers, 2012). The lack of involvement with the client will leave them rejected and disappointed as they could not get the support that they desperately need from the counsellor (Carl Rogers, 2012) and may lead to sterile counseling. Thus, it is important for counsellors to understand what the underlying values are and purpose behind this approach and determine if these values are in sync with their personal values so as to function their roles more effectively. The role of clients being in charge of their lives and the counsellor facilitating by the side are reflections of Roger's optimistic beliefs of human
Moore, did not relinquish himself from the case as he was going through his personal trauma concerning his wife’s suicide attempt. This could have given him so type of insight or picked up on behaviors that he previously ignored from his wife, however he could have misinterpreted some signs and rather than doing like he did and going to the proper authorities, it could have been ignored. When it comes to our own personal crisis and jumping into dealing with a client in a crisis prevention situation, we as mental health counselor must know where their limitation lies. While this is not to say a person cannot separate both aspects of their lives, there is a chance for the lines to blur and before it becomes an ethical issue, a mental health counselor must at times think in the best interest of their client and step aside until their own crisis is
