He pleaded a temporary insanity defense. (Colloff) So what if you think your mental or crazy, using an insanity defense is not the way to go. If you think you’re going insane, get help. Do not use the temporary insanity defense or any other kind of defense to get you out of trouble. You should be accountable for you own
usually compared to the best standard of care. It must be pointed out that in oncology patient population, placebo arm is not explicitly needed like in psychiatric clinical trials where placebo effect is significant problem. In oncology clinical trials, placebo arm is not considered as ethical, due to severity of the disease and life-threatening condition, so scientific curiosity can not prevail over the best interest of individual patient. In clinical trials investigating add on treatments, it is usually add on to the standard of care treatment in comparison to placebo. There is still open question should sponsor provide for free background therapy.
Mr. Smith further holds the belief that his attorney advised him not to testify during his trial by communicating with him nonverbally, through Mr. Smith knowledge of his attorneys thoughts. His attorney, however, did not advise him on any matters regarding plans for the upcoming trial. So while his mental health symptoms might not affect his factual understanding, his false beliefs could interfere with his rational understanding and his ability to fully comprehend his situation and understanding how court proceedings relate to his
I disagree with torture being an effective mean to gain information because; as recent research has shown it can be ineffective. Where I disagree with torture is its inhumane and there are other means to gain the same information. It doesn’t make sense to gain the same information
Polygraph testing would be considered an exaggerated claim because there is no scientific validity to back up the emotional response. “Because it measures physiological arousal rather than lying per se, the polygraph test is prone to mislabeling innocent persons guilty.” (Lilienfeld, Landfield 1222) As previously discussed, this test is based upon emotions, which the article by Scott Lilienfeld and Kristen Landfield further proves the pseudoscience behind polygraph testing. Throughout law enforcement and police officials’ careers, they are faced with daily challenges in pseudoscience, and the article further describes how lie detection is a part of that process. It also discusses in the article that they agree that the lie detectors should not be administered in a court of law. Another theory that comes into effect when discussing lie detector testing is terror management theory.
Researchers believe that the orbitofrontal cortex is affected in an addict and the neural signals do not change based on the severity of the situation. Thus they are unable to get their brain to make sound choices. Then a malfunction in the anterior cingulate cortex allows addicts to continue making bad decisions. These two major malfunctions continually allow an addict to make unhealthy choices (Nauert, 2011). Nic did not choose to steal because he wanted to hurt his family.
The first defense is that some consequences in the long term is bad. Like lying to people in the long run would ruin your reputations. But this theory cannot apply to all situations, so the first defense is weak. The second defense is that they made a new type of Utilitarianism called Rule-Utilitarianism. This idea does not judge people by the principles of utility but follows set of rules that promotes the most happiness.
Emotional abuse is also a major player when it comes to affecting the mentalities of children. Emotional abuse can harrow on the mind of a child forever. The phrase “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never harm me” is one of the most inaccurate sayings. Often children who grew up “in homes where they are constantly berated and belittled may experience self-confidence and anger problems” (“Emotional Abuse Signs, Symptoms and Effects”) that can later lead to them lashing out with their emotions. It is proven that children who are emotionally abused can “struggle to control strong emotions or have extreme outbursts” (“Emotional Abuse Signs, Symptoms, and Effects”) meaning that they could easily be triggered and act out aggressively when the situation presents itself.
“False Memory Syndrome” or FMS is a term created by a FMS support and advocacy group called the False Memory Syndrome Foundation, Inc. as a way to label the phenomenon in which a person account of past events are drastically differs from the truth. Although FMS is not a legitimate medical diagnosis, Todd Stark, the writer of “ What is ‘False Memory Syndrome?”, believes that this condition strongly affects many people such as pedophiles, children, and people who feel they have been falsely accused of child abuse. According to the article, a false memory if often created when “under conditions of therapy, a child’s (person’s) recollection of past events may be distorted, even radically, and that convincing evidence of psychological trauma and detailed false testimony against an innocent person may be manufactured by the (unwitting) facilitation of a therapist, who is motivated to find abuse.” In other words, people, or more specifically children being examined for abuse, can be coaxed into having a
Confessions carry powerful information for the jury, judge and also the public. You may be asking, "If you are innocent, why would you make a false confession?". Ultimately, research shows that there is no real answer. Although, others may argue that when people actually make a false confession its due to the interrogation part. People who are innocent confess to something that they committed because they are being pressured and they don’t see a positive outcome.
-Impact outside the Lab: Bandura’s theory is not a scientific law because it can vary in different cases depending on the characteristics and situations. People who are abused do not become abuser because they do not want to repeat damage. -Cognitive Psychology: Our thoughts are now understood to be a powerful determinant of behavior and takes in count cognitive process and learning is the study of the variety of processes of how they impact behavior. Schema helps an individual to organize and make an interpretation of information. Learning is a change to schema, superstitions may be based on illogical connections, and they are irrational beliefs.
For example, Feste says to Olivia, “I wear not motley in my brain.” (i.v.54-55). So although he may dress like a fool he does not have the intelligence of a fool and therefore should not be seen as someone who is dull. Feste is cautioning against making connections between what can be seen and what cannot, the actions and appearance of Feste do not shed light on his sanity as they are mutually exclusive. He later addresses this point again when interrogating Malvolio, “Nay, I’ll ne’er believe a madman till I see his brains.” (iv.ii.122-123). The impossibility of this request not only drives the point that Feste is incapable of determining sanity because he cannot ever see Malvolio’s brain, but that there is inherent danger in letting him analyze Malvolio’s sanity.
Polygraph tests should not be held admissible in the court system because they are used falsely and they do not always catch the lies that have been told.What is a polygraph? Is it used properly in the court system? “There is no test that can detect lies.”(Sources6)Some people think that the tests are read and study correctly and some people think it is read wrong. Scientist have studied and shows that it is not better than no other tests that is out there to catch lies and guilty people. (Sources 1) A person can constantly tell them self they didn 't do it and pass the polygraph test by just saying that to them self over and over to make their self believe .
The only ‘disease-like’ aspect of addiction is that if people do not deal with it, their lives tend to get worse.” In this case, addiction cannot be a disease because it does not incorporate the characteristics of a disease. Addiction creates a unique situation when defining it
