Throughout many different studies, anti-depressants have been proven to help improve depression in people. Anti-depressants are drugs used in the treatment of mood disorders, such as depression, to alleviate symptoms so that they may live a normal life. They have been proven to cause improvement in depressed pregnant or postpartum women, help with bipolar depression and lower suicide rates. With the help of these studies, I will be arguing in favor of the idea that anti-depressants are drugs that are able to help improve people who are going through mood disorders such as depression. The first study prepared by the Pacific Northwest Evidence-based Practice Center’s investigators which included: McDonagh, Matthers, Phillipi, Romm, Peterson,
PHYSICAL EXERCISE is synonymous with physical fitness and wellness but its prowess in contributing to improved mental health has garnered little recognition. Senior Registrar with the Kingston and St Andrew Community Mental Health Services and psychiatrist at the Edgewater Medical Centre in Bridgeport, St Catherine Dr Danielle Nelson explains that much benefit could be reaped by patients with mental conditions. In examining this issue, we have to ponder does exercise improve mental health, or is exercise a sign of good mental health? Scientists do acknowledge that persons who take the decision to exercise may naturally practice a wide range of positive health behaviours that keep them in better mental health.
Emotional Eating I am sure you have all heard the saying at least once: “eating to live versus living to eat”. When you eat because you’re feeling sad or stressed remind yourself that what you’ll ultimately do is turn one problem into two. Emotional eating is using food to make yourself feel better - eating to satisfy emotional needs, rather than to satisfy physical hunger. Sometimes the strongest food cravings hit when you’re at your weakest point emotionally. Emotional eating can make you turn food into comfort which can sabotage your weight loss efforts.
Functional social support encompass emotional support, practical support and social integration. Likewise, other researchers too have successfully concluded that social support does deter the negative outcomes by enhancing healthy behaviours and decreasing stress levels which helps individuals cope better with life events.(e.g. , Cohen & Willis, 2005; Ebata & Moos, 1994;
(pill or needle, for example). Hypothesis Patients who receive close attention and care from doctors , will react much better to treatments administered , compared to those with little interactions with doctors. The mere belief that patients will be receiving medication to improve their conditions , will improve their condition, and in addition they will even experiance the side effects of the fale treatmeants. Scope of research The aim will be tested by analysing the rooms in which placebo tratmeants are administered , wether the physical surroundings are calm or unsetteling and whether the doctors are caring or curt and wether interactions with close attention to patients verses those with very little attention would affect the outcome of the patient.
This is a type of focused meditation that will help the client experience inner quietness. It will also help him reduce stress hormones by activating the parasympathetic nervous system (Bergland, 2016). According to a research study developed to find the benefits of Hypnosis and CBT when treating Acute Stress Disorder, it was found that hypnosis may be useful in facilitating the treatment effects of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for clients who experience posttraumatic stress. Thus, combining CBT with hypnosis can help the client reduce reexperiencing symptoms (Bryant, Moulds, Guthrie, & Nixon, 2005).
Secondly, special educational programs are also useful when it comes to treating ASD. Because ASD affects people’s minds, special education programs must be used to teach them how to interact, communicate and work. Hopefully that would help them to acquire good jobs in the future. The third treatment that has been used a lot is behavioral therapy, and usually there are no real attempts for this therapy even with its great effectiveness. It focuses on making the autistic person’s surrounding environment, convenient, and how he or she is involved in it.
Kazantzis et al. (2010) stated that this therapy technique is thought to address underlying processes that occur in multiple disorders. MBCT may influence emotional and evaluative dimensions that underlie aspects of a person’s general well-being. This is done through the combination of mindfulness meditation, yoga, and education regarding the mind-body relationship, which helps increase a person’s awareness of their disorder and leads to increased health and well-being of patients with a wide array of disorders. Kabat-Zin emphasizes that “the simple act of recognizing your thoughts as thoughts can free you from the distorted reality they often create and allow for more clear-sightedness and a greater sense of manageability in your life” (Kazantzis, et al., 2010, in
Overcorrection is a punishment method which may be helpful with adult aphasia patients. The process involved to reduce the unwanted behaviour need a person to correct the environmental consequences of an inappropriate act and should be followed by the right form of act (Goldfarb, 2006). In his research paper, he did mention about Foxx and Azrin (1973) experiments on some procedures were taken to stop self-stimulatory behaviour in patients with developmental delay (DD) and ASD. Even though the outcome was not completely stop the behaviour but overall it was a positive trend.
Mindfulness is an intentional awareness of one’s self and one’s environment in the present moment that is cultivated by the practice of withholding judgement of one’s thought. Kabat-Zinn believes that “inhabiting the full dimensionality of our being,” is the inner resource all humans possess and must utilize to reach their full potential (FCL xxvii). Mindfulness is tuning into this full dimensionality, yet at the same time focusing in on one thing specifically, that thing being whatever may be occurring in the present time. This ‘object of awareness’ may shift from practice to practice, or within a practice, and can be almost anything: the breath, noise, sensations on the skin, emotions, or even thoughts. Often the details chosen to practice
