Summary Michael Yapko (2009), in his article “Secondhand Blues,” considers depression as a social condition, which then allows it to spread from depressed individuals and affect all of the important people in their life. Yapko’s main subjects within the article are depressed parents and the effect they have on their children, as well as depressed individuals and their partners or spouses. There are a few central themes through these subject groups, such as infectiously negative worldviews, self-blame or persecutory thinking, and feelings of hopelessness, as naturally common with depression. Even from birth, parental depression can affect children. Yapko states “that the apathy and withdrawal of mothers who have postpartum depression show up in the baby's brain as

Resilience Elderly mistreatment is a topic that is constantly talked about. Elderly people are believed to be weak and fragile which is thought to put them at risk to abuse. With old age comes the risk of not having family members or secure relationships. Elderly people are forced into homes or forced into trusting people they have no prior relationship with. The elderly population is more at risk to abuse on a physical, emotional, and mental level.
On the other hand, postpartum psychosis is the worst form of postpartum mood disorders and is associated with delusions, hallucinations, rapid speech and mood swings, paranoia, agitation, inability to eat and sleep, racing thoughts, and, suicidal feelings. The manifestation, prevalence and management approaches to these conditions vary. Previous studies have shown that postpartum depression affects the mother-child relationship, mother-spouse relationship, as well as the cognitive development and behavior of the child. Although giving birth to a newborn brings joy to a parent, the occurrence of stressors has the potential for affecting parents immensely. These stressors are responsible for postpartum stress/depression and include; fatigue, soreness, baby feeding, high
The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman approaches this problem by telling the narrative from the view of a mentally ill woman. Truth is determined by an individual 's perception of themselves, others and the world around them. Everyone’s perception of reality is different and one cannot attest to the soundness of a child’s rationale behind their opinion. Telling the story from the perspective of a mentally ill patient
Those who suffer from poor health, poor relationships and feel that they have no control over their fate are more likely to experience feelings of stagnation. Expanding On the Generativity vs. Stagnation Stage Recent research has suggested further elaboration of the primary conflicts of the generativity vs. stagnation stage. These include: Inclusivity versus exclusivity: This crisis centers on the scope of caregiving activities and on what and who an individual is willing to include in his or her life. This stage reflects the trust versus mistrust stage of early
It is now too often the case industry conveys that information about mental disorders. While this education may be very beneficial in sensitizing populations to the mental health needs of children and adolescents it also holds the risk of distorted messages being conveyed to an anxious and needy populous, may limit the full potential of an appropriate diagnostic evaluation and limit the treatment options considered. Furthermore, oppression and domination are known to impact children and young adults in the foster care system. “Young people that are obstructed or prevented from becoming competent or from being able to communicate their opinions, desires, and emotions experienced a form of oppression” (Bruskas, Delilah, R.N., M.N. 2008).
Outcome 3 Understand the importance of early intervention for children and young people who are disadvantaged and vulnerable Explain what is meant by both disadvantage and vulnerability Disadvantaged Disadvantage is a term used to describe a condition or circumstance that will reduce a child’s chances of success. A disadvantaged child may have reduced chances of success for a number of reasons including: Poverty Ill health Poor parenting (Or a parent with ill health or substance addiction) Unhealthy environment Reduced schooling Vulnerability Vulnerability refers to the possibility of suffering harm. Harm can be emotional or physical and there are many reasons why a child can be exposed to greater possibilities or risk of harm: Lack of supervision Exposure to inappropriate relationships or advice Abuse Failure of supervising adults to provide appropriate boundaries and support Illness or disability
From a Friends for Mental Health article titled “Children living with a mentally ill parent,” by Jaimie Byrne, the prospect of living with a mentally ill parent is said to be “chaotic, disorganized, and filled with tension,” if the proper steps towards understanding the mental illness are not made naturally. The article encourages children to fully acknowledge the fact that their parent(s) are “sick,” -- as physical illness is a common ground for young people, a concept which they can grasp -- and that they are in need of support and acceptance in order to live a fulfilling and healthy home life. They must also educate themselves on the mental illness and what to say when a parent’s mental illness is at its worst. Living with a mentally ill parent is completely possible, and should not be used as an excuse for neglect. There are simply more things to take note of and to do in order to maintain a strong parent-child relationship.
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.
Additional risk factors include having a caregiver who has untreated/unresolved trauma and who may have difficulty with affect regulation, depression, anxiety, and/or hostility/aggression (Harris, et al., 2004). Being a member of a high-risk group such as: having Native American, Alaskan Native, African American, and mixed-race decent (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2008); being a homeless youth, LGBTQ+; and/or being a youth whose parents have a criminal record or history of mental illness can impede on the adolescent’s resiliency and ability to cope with trauma (Costello et al.,
Closed vs Open adoption is when the parent is faced with the most crucial decision of them all. “A closed adoption is one where no identifying information about the birth family or the adoptive family. An open adoption allows for some form of association among the birth parents, adoptive parents and the child they adopted” (Types of Adoption). These crucial decisions can lead to the adoptee harming their own self. “Some common issues observed in adoptees are depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, reactive attachment disorder (RAD), post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), identity development, general feelings of grief, loss, and rejection.
The major effect that postpartum psychosis has on the mother, child, or the family members if untreated is death. Victims of PP can hallucinate and not actually realize they are hurting someone until after it is done. It is extremely important to seek help when a parent shows signs and symptoms. The effects on the child are lack of proper care due to the mother’s interest in the baby. Mothers begin to forget or even acknowledge that they have a baby.
Furthermore, family caregivers who may experience depressive symptoms can be less capable in managing the behavioural symptoms of dementia (Takai, Takahashi, Iwamitsu, Oishi, & Miyaoka 2011). Similarly, Takai et al. (2011) found that when informal caregivers report a decrease in quality of life, it is correlated to higher incidence of depression and burnout. With that being said, families may feel frequently overwhelmed in managing the symptoms of dementia. The lack of knowledge, support, and resources can further exacerbate these feelings with the intent to provide the best care possible.
