2. The other factor is the environment that you are raised in. (TRANSITION: Since we know what causes it, what are some of the symptoms?) III. People with bipolar disorder experience unusual and intense emotional states called “Mood Episodes”, which represent a drastic change from a person’s usual mood and behavior, (National Institute of Mental Health).
Diﬀerent techniques or methods use diﬀerent approaches to addressing dropout problems. Although the dropout problem is ubiquitous, there is still no firm consensus on what statistical procedures should be used for analysis or on the circumstances under which they should be applied. What follows now is a brief description of the several methods that are commonly used to deal with dropout, including a review of the existing literature in which we examine the eﬀectiveness of these methods in the analysis of incomplete longitudinal clinical trials
The world is a diverse population, with people coming from various ethnic and cultural backgrounds. A person’s views, values, and traditions determine their daily needs and practices. So, healthcare providers face certain challenges and restrictions because a patient’s belief may inhibit professionals from providing the most effective care. Therefore, cultural competence is an important idea for healthcare providers to consider when understanding and respecting patients. Balcazar, Suarez-Balcazar, and Taylor-Ritzler (2009) noted in “Cultural competence: Development of a conceptual framework” that cultural competence is difficult to define and measure, but it can be demonstrated by adjusting healthcare practices and interventions in order to
This group of lesbians, gays and bisexuals identified as a group as LGB. This group of people has faced a significant amount of stressors as a result of being stigmatized as a group (Savin-Williams 1994). A therapist can intervene and help a patient cope with the stressors that accompany their stigmatized sexual orientation. Sexuality stress is a term that exists in many forms but occurs when an individual experiences anxiety surrounding their sexual identity (Meyer 1995). There is a significant amount of research demonstrating a link between sexuality stress and emotional stress among LGB commnity, and thus causing this group of individuals to have an increased risk for mental health problems, including depression, substance abuse and suicidal thoughts (Almeida et al.
As mentioned by the researchers in this study, the lack of resources - time, facilitates, and staff might be another reason contributed to the declined usage of creative activities in the occupational therapy treatment (Müllersdorf, p. 373). The short hospital stays and limited health insurance coverage might be another reason that pushes occupational therapy practitioners "towards...rapid solutions" and restricted them from incorporating creative activities to the treatment plan (Müllersdorf, p.
It varies considerably (35–90%) possibly due to the use of different measurement instruments, research in heterogeneous populations, and measurement during different stages of illness (Lyne et al., 2012). Negative symptoms are highly prevalent amongst schizophrenia patients and therefore, may help predict poorer social outcomes, such as social stagnation (Dlabac-de Lange, Knegtering & Aleman,
Depression commonly affects a vast amount of patients in the primary care setting (L. Foldager, 2011). The increased cases of depression over the years are worrying (Mitchell et al., 2013). There is thus a need to enhance diagnosis and treatment. The purpose of the paper is to review an evidence-based clinical practice guideline (CPG) used to effectively diagnose and treat individual suspected of having depression by health practitioners in the primary care setting. Clinical issue Depression occurs due to many reasons including recent loss, chronic medical illness, domestic violence or loss of a loved one.
Kum Martin outlines the challenges that are faced by families and patients in “Some Disadvantages of Hospice Care”. Martin reviews the difficult facts that the family might experience while they are left helpless and ultimately responsible for their family members’ end of life care. Martin asserts that families are faced with providing care and need to stop everything else they are doing in order to care for their loved one. Providing round-the-clock care can be difficult, as many patients who chose hospice are no longer eligible to receive care at the hospital. This means they must be discharged and return home (Martin).
Panic disorder is categorised by the DSM-5 as an anxiety disorder in which recurrent and unexpected panic attacks are experienced by the patient.

The purpose of this paper is to present the information necessary to conceptualize a client case study on an individual who has been suffering from the anxiety condition of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The client that is the subject of this case study is fictional in nature although the indicators that the client displays are those that are associated with the condition of PTSD. Review of Research Issue The earlier research conducted was concerned with the efficacy of treatment of anxiety disorders in adults. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) was identified as an effective treatment for these types of mental disorders. Anxiety disorders are one of the most prevalent mental health disorders experienced by Americans today.
