The phrase 'Nature vs. Nurture" is used to describe arguments about whether a disease is a genetic problem or something that is caused by someone's situation or environment. Depression is one disease that is often subjected to the discussion of nature vs. nurture because it can be very difficult to diagnose and treat, leaving many wondering how it even originated. The book Prozac Nation: Young and Depressed in America is a memoir written by Elizabeth Wurtzel that gives readers a firsthand look of how she grew up and coped with her depression. As she retells different parts of her life, a question that is often brought up is, "Where did the depression come from?" One side of the argument is that the depression is caused by her environment.
This relates to many of the characters in “The Pigman.” Many teens feel neglected because of their parents. Their parents don’t pay enough attention to them. A parent who verbally abuses their child, just like Mrs. Jensen, is just as bad as a parent who doesn’t do anything to stop their child, just like Bore. If a child begins to talk back to their parents, word abuse retaliation is not the right decision. This can lead to the child having a low self-esteem which then leads to depression.
In this time of need, one would generally feel several emotions including hurt, loneliness, anger, and more. Sharon Begley, writer from Newsweek and author of the article, “Happiness: Enough Already,” critiques the newfound “happiness psychologists” and their views on the topic of happiness. She acknowledges this same scenario for, “Jess Decourcy Hinds, an English teacher, (who) recounted how, after her father died, friends pressed her to distract herself from her profound sadness and sense of loss” (Begley 454). Being in this situation is not desirable but is an event everyone has or eventually will face in the course his or her life. Being told to just ignore or distract themselves from the other emotions they are experiencing is not helpful as this person’s friends may believe.
So if you are depressed, for instance, a psychiatrist is best placed to help you think about whether a biological treatment like antidepressant drugs may help. And a clinical psychologist is best placed to help you think about whether a psychological therapy like cognitive behavioural therapy may help to manage the underlying cause of depression and to make you able to deal with it effectively. Clinical psychologists will usually be able to help you see a psychiatrist if that would be helpful for your problem, and psychiatrists will usually be able to help you see a clinical psychologist if they would be more able to help you with your
Studies on adopted children with biological parents that had depression support the idea that it is more likely that a person will develop depression at one point of life if his/her blood relative once suffered from this illness. The contribution of the genetic factor to the etiology of depression is obvious, but at the same time the method of inheritance is still complex and unclear. For now, we have failed to pinpoint the actual DNA sequence or location of potential depression genes since it is in fact quite difficult. It is most likely that genes do not directly cause depression, but act as a trigger to some biological situations, which causes it by initiating overproduction or decrease of certain neurobiological
We choose what is right for our well being and health and sometimes we fall into this deep emotional hole. Lady Macbeth loses control of her actions which leads her into her own emotional hole. It is reported that depression causes women that to be aloof and quiet which makes them more prone to making more mistakes due to lack of concentration and sleep (Cape Times 2013). Lady Macbeth is a big role in Macbeth’s life being the dominant person in the relationship.There is a point in life where you lose control over what your mind thinks, and this was her time. Lady Macbeth exclaims, “Out damned spot, out, I say!” (Shakespeare 5.1 28).
Procrastination can lead to an unsuccessful outcome because when stress and anxiety come in other problems do to like delaying your career or projecting building up a pile of things you were supposed to do or were going to do, this leads to emotional break down and consistently nailing yourself down and never feeling proud. Hating yourself for not completing things you could have easily done and giving up. Giving up is the most common thing people do, this leads to depression and other health risks. Drug abuse might even come in at this stage. Sometimes when our minds accept failure we tend to push our self-down and think we can’t do anything, so we give up.
Currently, this technique is applicable to thalassemia Huntington’s disease, cystic fibrosis and Duchene’s muscular dystrophy. An outlook medical use of genetic engineering is for gene therapy. Persons who are born with congenital disorder ensuing from a flawed gene could have a sound gene inserted into their cells, preventing the manifestations of the virus. In William’s article where he believed that the primary therapeutic genetically engineered cells have infused into a 4-year-old girl with adenosine deaminase deficiency. The infused cells were lymphocytes from the girls own blood, into which researchers had inserted copies of missing gene that directs production of ADA.
If parents are constantly fighting this means that one of them think that they're marriage is over. They may try counseling but it will most probably won't work because one of the thinking of one of the parents. Divorce needs to be thought as a process instead of as a single event that influences people's lives. The negative effects children in divorced families have is not because of divorce but due to exposure to traumatic processes and experiences. During the course of a marriage, one or more marital partners begin to feel alienated from the other.
The responsibilities double and widows tend to blame themselves for the loss and go into depression, denial and seclusion. At a later stage if the spouse demises the woman tries to deny it more as they feel their support system is lost. They try to find problems in every situation and may have anger issues and eventually go into depression and this can be prevented by close support of family and friends and diverting their mind and giving them happiness in all other ways. DEATH AND DYING: a) Denial- The person finds it difficult to believe they have a sickness and they are dying. It’s hard for them to accept the reality and deny it and try to seclude
