Based on the five theories of behavioural change that we covered in class, social cognitive theory, self determination theory, theory of planned behaviour, health action process approach and trans-theoretical model, I think the theory that applies best to myself is the self determination theory. This theory is characterized as having a relationship between extrinsic and intrinsic motivation and the basic human need for autonomy. This determines how self-motivated and self-determined the client is, as well as where their motivation comes from; whether this be extrinsically or intrinsically. Typically, people who associate themselves with self determination theory (SDT) are those who thrive on intrinsic rewards and whom enjoy the exercise they are doing. For example, I think I fit best with SDT because I love the exercise I do.
Some of the main dilemmas, in my opinion, develop when our clients want to face situations that might be potentially dangerous for their health and safety, such as going out at night, or dressed in way that is inappropriate for the season for example, or what to use tools that are not suitable for their level of understanding and skills. Others when our clients want to use their money unwisely, or to go out with people that might take advantage, just to name but a few. In all these situations it is fundamental to remember that we are (should not) never alone in supporting our service users and that team work is at the core of any accurate and professional support we provide. In fact, it is always a delicate work, based on knowledge, trust and cooperation, that can help us all dealing with, at least some of the main dilemmas and cooperation with all the professionals involved in the care delivery
I believe sharing your distresses with the ones you love and trust will create a lasting bond, and will ease the pain of your loss. Even in the face of inevitability, you can gain strength through the support and encouragement of others; instead of feeling guilty and regretting your decisions, you can leave these arduous experiences as a stronger, more empathetic and resilient person. In a sense, as you create new bonds and strengthen them through every experience you share, your own character also becomes more tenacious and prepared for difficult trials
The questionnaires were coded using a 5 point Likert scaling process that allowed the respondents to answer based on their feelings about the questions. The data was then turned into quantitative data sets that could be measured (Lambert & Paoline, 2008). There was significant variation in both dependent and independent variables (Lambert & Paoline, 2008). The focus groups were used to develop questionnaires, the data collected from the questionnaires were quantified for analysis using a 5 point Likert scale (Lambert & Paoline, 2008).
Whether socially or in the work force, we all have a desire to please others. We also have the need to seek approval from others. Depending on our peers, this approval may either be positive or negative. I believe that after a period of time we become ingrained with the beliefs of the people who we interact with on a daily basis. As they say, “the more you hang out with someone, the more you start to act like them”.
It’s vital to understand that in all that we do, there’s a dependably a chance that we’ll come up short. Confronting that chance, and grasping it, it likewise gives us a fuller, all the more compensating life. However, they are ways to overcome fear as learned from the book. Many people experience fear of failure because they fear the unknown. Remove that fear by considering all of the potential outcomes of your decision.
Empathy Empathy means feeling an emotion or experience in yourself that connects to others. Empathy can help you as you take care of the most difficult patients, as it will help you too see how difficult is it to be in their position, and that
Thus, encouraged me to elaborate more about time management, modes to overcome obstacles when faced with unexpected situations, and to explain in greater depth why I identify myself as a kinesthetic learner. Critiquing another classmate’s written work helps to learn how to better communicate with one another and how to accept corrective criticism from their peers. Most positions, within the workforce, require staff to effectively collaborate with one another. Therefore, learning to accept corrective criticism is a must and it will help you achieve success not solely within the workforce, but also in your day to day life
According to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs theory, there are five broad motivational needs classified into basic needs and growth needs (Kaur, 2013). The basic needs include, esteem, psychological, love and safety. On the other hand, growth needs involve self-actualization. In this regard, Maslow stipulated that individuals are motivated to attain certain needs (Kaur, 2013). These needs are arranged in such a way that the lower needs must be met before the higher ones.
These traits are expected from those working as a professional emergency medical technician, or any professional in public safety. Integrity is the willingness to do what is right at all times, even when no one is looking. It is the inner voice that dictates self-control, and provides a basis of ones moral compass. The professional emergency medical technician must exhibit integrity through moral courage and ability to do the right thing all the time, even if the personal cost is high.
1 UNDERSTAND WHAT IS REQUIRED FOR COMPETENCE IN OWN WORK ROLE. 1.1 DESCRIBE THE DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF OWN WORK ROLE. As a support worker, I care for my service users by assisting them with the administration of medications, meal preparation/feeding, hoisting them from bed to the chair, cleaning of bowel movement and catheter care. It is my duty to make sure I adhere to the care needs of the service user by reading the care plan and recording all activities in the record book.
Less work load for each individual is achieved, therefore relieving the stress. Trust between the health care professionals rise this therefore builds strong foundations. Negative issues could surface regarding multi-disciplinary teams, danger of information being shared incorrectly and patient’s slipping through the net is possible, leading to the wrong treatment needed for individuals. As the health care institution is very busy and fast paced, it is understandable that mistakes are quite easily made. Codes of conduct within the (HCPC)
The author, Woods, aimed to prove that the court system should be looking more carefully when deeming a guardian appropriate to care for a vulnerable elder. “Guardians must act under the strictest standards of care and accountability-and the court has responsibility for oversight” (Woods, 2012).The goal of thoroughly examining the guardian is to reduce the likelihood that abuse will occur later on. A “Five-Plus-Five” formula was developed to help guardians protect the rights of the vulnerable elderly who need cared for. There are five questions that should be asked prior to appointing a guardian and after the guardianship is implemented.
Mental health problems are illnesses that pose lots of life problems to individuals who suffer from these health problems. Despite the difficulty that comes with treating these disorders, it is imperative for the victims to seek cognitive and behavioral therapies as well as medical attention to be able to improve their lives.
