I included this because sometimes you’re too nervous to talk to a friend about what is bothering you and so instead you could write it to them so they too understand. This could also be used to cheer you up if you are written compliments or photos are pasted into
People grieve because of love and loss. There are also many ways to get over the feeling of grief. People get over it by talking to their friends and seeking help from professionals or even sometimes family members. Also, being able to maintain good physical health along with maintaining good mental health helps to keep the mind occupied. It is also very important to be able to know when you need to seek any sort of help because even though people really try to tough it out, going through their emotions and venting to someone is very beneficial.
These are my own personal cultural resources and I have an understanding of how these resources can affect my mood, my wellbeing and my mental health and also how I can access these resources when required. Because I find it extremely easy to access my own personal cultural resources I began to think about how difficult it could be for a client who has serious issues going on in their life such as depression, anxiety or suicidal thoughts to even contemplate accessing their own cultural resources. The question arises how can we, as counsellors actively encourage and facilitate our clients’ cultural resources through their agency and pre-existing resources, knowing that they can be of great benefit to their wellbeing, mental health and general mood? As I commenced working as a trainee counsellor in placement, I found that clients tended to look at me to provide them with cultural resources, and it became quite clear to me that in order for a client to access their own cultural resources they must have some agency within the counselling relationship. The competent skills required to enable this I feel, are lacking and could be an area for future research in the training of counsellors in a pluralistic
People who were diagnosed with social anxiety find it hard to cope with meeting new people, going out in public with people, and going to work/school. They also, like mentioned earlier, often get mistaken with being introverted or really shy by others. At school, if a student with social anxiety has to present a project, the teacher often forces the student to present. The teacher usually says, “Get over being shy, you’re going to have to do this in the future for your job,” which embarasses and angers the
Her threshold of patience will also be very low and could get easily angry with other students as well. On the other hand, the other students are also heavily impacted by Jimmy’s behaviour. Every child is entitled to an education in a safe and secure environment, which is free from frequent disruptions. When Jimmy displays challenging behaviour and disrupts the class often, tension will build up in class. They could resent Jimmy for his behaviour and thus lead him to be more isolated and without any friends.
A person who lost him/herself, that’s a tragedy already, but when that person took their own life, that tragedy is now shared. You see, people are already suffering, 62% of girls feel insecure about themselves, 33% of guys are also insecure with themselves and both still growing into problematic ratios. To be unhappy with yourself or your own life is already leading to tragedy. To lose yourself just to be someone everyone wants you to be is not the answer, so why worry about what other’s see in you. When a person is insecure, the mindset has then molded itself to insecurity.
The idea of compassion flows into another key aspect of being caring, which is helping others. As a compassionate individual, I step into their shoes and try to get through their problems, but to be caring you must be willing to help. No matter what time of the day or night it is, anyone can call to get a little advice, or to vent their heart out. This is an important quality I strive to have because I know what it is like to be in a hard part of your life, so being able to care for others creates a happiness inside of me. The last key value of being caring that I strive to have is to be kind.
They try so hard to balance them it burns them out and eventually weighs them down to procrastination, then unproductivity. Occasional bad moods or acting out is to be expected, but depression is something different. Depression can destroy the very essence of a teenager’s personality, causing an overwhelming sense of sadness, despair, or anger. Depression is not just something that spurred out of nowhere. It is THE effect of multiple issues that have never been addressed properly by an individual to his or her elders.
Bullying is becoming a terrible problem in our society. Many kids and teenagers are afraid to go to school and afraid of getting harassed by their peers. The person being bullied may experience depression, social anxiety, sleeping problems, loss of interest in activities they used to like, and eating. The psychological effects for the bullied include suicidal thoughts and behaviors. There are three things parents and schools could do to cut down being bullied; keep an eye on your child’s social media networks,
In this essay I will argue that peer pressure is not good for self-development based on my researches and understandings. As a teenager myself, I believe that every teen will face a form of peer pressure growing up, whether it’s negative or positive. Loneliness and desire for acceptance often drives students to give in to negative peer pressure. We often hear about the dangers of peer pressure and its effect to teens. One of the negative effects is losing their interest in their hobbies.
The economic downturn caused by the Great Depression negatively impacted society. This devastating time period led to changes in family life, overcrowding and health issues. With many adults left unemployed, most families began to struggle. All of the sudden, money was gone which stressed everyone. Since no one in the family was making money, families had to make dramatic changes.
Arne Duncan, who is the secretary of education has stated his own opinion: “I 'm as concerned as any parent or teacher about over-testing and teaching to the test. But I 'm equally concerned about kids slipping through the cracks if we aren 't keeping track of their progress and holding adults accountable for helping them learn.” (Duncan) There is now a case of Test Anxiety which is a psychological condition where a student experiences an immense amount of distress, which can inhibit the ability to learn and can also hurt their test performance. Many students have test anxiety and it becoming more prevalent because the test are becoming more and more important to graduate or to get into college. Also when a student receives a low score, this cause the student to feel demotivated and it discourages them from trying harder. I know from personal experience how a low score can affect me.
The rising deaths and DCFS cases is a testament to the disservice our nation is doing to neglected and abused youths. Once kids are placed in the foster care system, they are often moved from one placement to another which may negatively impact all aspects of their lives that are critical to success in later life such as school, social relationships, and environmental/community influences. This constant separation and loss may lead youths to feel hopeless, and resent social interactions as they feel that social relationships are extremely fragile. This affects group treatment as individuals may drop-out of treatment due to a new placement, or decline to actively participate as they feel hopeless and feels distrustful of everything around them. When children and youths cannot trust their caregivers for reassurance, they have no where to turn but the public.
