The reason being Bowen believed human behaviors view as an emotional and unit system thinking which may cause a domino effect. When previously reading according to Bowen individuals may separate themselves from their families. When affecting each other’s thought’s, actions and feeling cause a family to become distant or disconnected disarranging their family orientation for unity. Often, family member tends to seek each other’s attention, support, and approval as they may respond to each other’s distress, needs, and expectations. Which may become complex, stressful, out of control, causing a family member to become overwhelmed by unrealistic obligations and expectation.
Solomons (2016) defined self-respect as an individual’s acceptance of self which forms the keystone on how he treats himself and allow others to treat him. With this, it seems that elderlies tend to have difficulty accepting the changes happening in later life. These changes can be reflected in their responses and predominantly focused in their susceptibility of having negative perception of their capabilities or qualities. It seems that they regard aging as a discontinuation process which denotes that they seem to describe their stage in life marked by diminish strength, health, ability and productivity. Some of their responses are: “Mahina na po ako, matanda na., Hindi ko na nagagawa ang dati kong ginagawa noon., Nabawasan na ang lakas ko., Nahihirapan na ako., and Hindi na ako aasenso hanggang dito na lang ako.”, which can be supported by the claim of Esteban (2015) who determined the idioms that Filipino elderlies use to describe and make sense of their experience of
Bereavement is the loss of someone you love. One of the most heart wrenching experiences we can face in our lifetime is the death of someone you love. However, bereavement can manifest itself in other situations such as health decline in you or someone you hold dear, or the termination of a special relationship. Grief is also a normal part of the bereavement process and is defined by the manner in which we respond to an intense physical or psychological heartache. Grief is a very intense emotion.
Bereavement. Elderlies also shared that they have grieved over the death of their loved ones. This experience is one of the most stressful life situations of elderlies which may predispose them to mental health problems. Bereaved elderlies can be assisted to deal with their situation using the following: Be present and listen with compassion to support in the grieving process. One of the most difficult experiences in life is the death of a loved one as it brings painful emotions such as anger, sadness and guilt and can make the bereaved feel isolated.
This leads me to believe that Norman was sheltered and nurtured too much by his mother, once his father had passed away. When someone has multiple disorders they usually have what they call Co-Occurring Disorders or has been commonly known as dual diagnosis or dual disorder (Psychology Today, 2014). Persons such as Norman, have a strong distrust of others ' and this typically begins in early adulthood. Moreover, Norman suffered from the mental known as Psychosis and those who suffer from this, have a hard to determining what is real and what is not real. All in all, such treatment for DID will result in an extensive long-term psychotherapy, in which the therapists will try and deconstruct the different personalities that he has and make them one.
When looking at Aristotle’s views of virtue ethics, we must understand that it takes place over a period, and is the enlightenment of the individual concerning traumatic and dramatic life events that have occurred in the individual 's life time (Williams & Arrigo, 2012). This view of virtue is one that shows us that the person must take these negative events that have occurred in the individual 's life will for a time hold a power over them of guilt and shame that they were not able to protect themselves better during the event that took place. Once the person has accepted the fact that the event has taken place, and they then start to recover from the event. Once the recovery process has taken place, the person will then be able to not only rebuild their lives but will be able to use the event that took place as a stepping stone that has moved them to build a stronger life for themselves (Williams & Arrigo, 2012).
It has been called the "inability to nurture" (Joinson, 1992, p. 119). In Figley's seminal work, he states, "prolonged exposure means an ongoing sense of responsibility for the care of the sufferer and the suffering, over a protracted period of time" (Figley, 1995, p. 253). The operational definition for the concept of compassion fatigue is the feeling of tiredness, apathy, wanting to quit, callousness and indifference toward patients, and a feeling of having your own personal inner well empty. It can occur abruptly or as a consequence of prolonged exposure to traumatic stressors, intense connection with patients and constant use of self to assist
Experience of Self-Pity. Elderlies also experience self-pity due to unavoidable stressful situations in life such as loneliness, loss of loved ones, disability, physical deterioration, absence or longing for children and financial distress. The following are the strategies which may be delivered among elderlies who are experiencing self-pity: Recognize the feeling of self-pity and its source to facilitate understanding, acceptance and appropriate intervention of concern. Helping elderlies develop awareness to their feeling of self-pity and its source is the beginning of the healing process as it gives way to get in touch to their authentic selves. Conroy (2006) stated that self-pity is an instinctive reaction or response to suffering or distressful events.
One of the reasons is because of what the author describes as Traumatic bonding . Trauma bonding is loyalty to a person who is destructive. One of the first questions that we have for a person in an unhealthy relationship is, “Why do you stay?” This question probably makes the individual feel as though they are weak and a failure, these feelings usually result in shame and guilt. In some cases, women may seem to "want" to be beaten. I thought it was interesting because when people
She might have understood that the change was essential for her Being, that she always had to be in continued change to discover herself again and again. Who knows that she might have wrote letters that expressed the change! How the one who read them might have suffered! The change in her would have been appalling, the change that occurs when something is happening inside the person, and the person knows it and seems to relish it. This is the change that occurs when one embarks on the journey of love, of longing, of suffering, of passion, and of knowing oneself.
