Reducing poverty and homelessness in families will, in turn, create a future generation conducive to tolerance and innovation. Children experience developmental consequences when raised without the stability of a permanent home. These detriments are exhibited through their personal and social development, and both their mental and physical health (CMHC, 2003). As extreme poverty leading to homelessness in families is addressed, a considerable component of society is reinstated. To achieve a society without homelessness, the ideologies of multiculturalism and anti-discrimination are necessary.
In these patients, the risk of Adverse drug reactions (ADRs) increases in proportion to the no. of simultaneous prescribed medications. Poor choice of medication by the physician is undoubtedly a major cause of ADRs in older citizens. Another scale and severity of the problem globally, there is little agreement about how best to prevent Inappropriateness in older people. Regular review of medications in older citizens seems a logical way of minimizing Inappropriateness and associated adverse drug reactions (ADRs).
Studies focusing on self-compassion and child maltreatment, are hardly generalizable to the entire child maltreatment population. The studies by respectively focused on teens seeking for treatment for substance use and on adolescents in Child Protective Service who were in either foster care, grouped care, independent living, or living with family-of-origin and who did not show severe psychopathology. In order to generalize the results to the broad population, a more varied sample including resilient individuals who suffered from child maltreatment should be used. Another reason why the current research is not generalizable to the broad population is that neither studies controlled for sub-variables of child maltreatment chronicity, type of maltreatment, age of first maltreatment event etc.. Furthermore, new research should focus on self-compassion in resilient individuals who experienced child maltreatment in order to establish if the relationship between self-compassion and mental health is also present in this sample.
Essentially, parental warmth is associated with giving material rewards, and those children later in life think of the accumulation of goods as a way to measure their success. The researchers found that material punishments were not positively associated with adult materialism. This suggests that material punishments may not impact materialism in the same way that rewards do. The decrease of parental warmth and rejection of a child were related to increase childhood feelings of insecurity, which were related to higher materialism in adulthood. Adults who received material rewards as children believe that
As mentioned by the National Sleep Foundation, teens not getting enough sleep can lead to a likelihood of experiencing depressed moods, and a risk of metabolic and nutritional deficits like obesity (“School Start Time and Sleep”). This means not only are the teens being negatively affected physically, but not enough sleep is also taking a toll on their mental health. In Rachel Feeley’s article she writes about her worries of kids not being able to participate in sports or extra-curricular activities if the school start times delay. However, her statement proves to be quite ironic since by worrying about the students’ health, Feeley is forgetting the negative aspects of early wake up
Development of dissociative disorders in adulthood appears to be related to the intensity/frequency of dissociation during the actual the traumatic event(s) (Dissociation FAQ’s). Dissociation may become a defensive pattern that persists into adulthood and can result in a full-fledged disorder (D.I.D.). D.I.D. is understood to be a result of several factors; however, an individual that experiences recurrent episodes of abuse during childhood is more likely to dissociate and develop D.I.D. (D.I.D.). As many as 99% of individuals who develop this disorder have recognized personal histories of recurring, overpowering, and often life-threatening disturbances at a sensitive development state of childhood.
There are a number of circumstances that can heighten the chances for adolescents risk taking, these factors must be taken into consideration in order to properly come up with a solution to the issue. One factor to consider would be social class, a family’s poverty level can have an impact on a child mental health. Parents can endure a severe level of stress when they aren’t able to sustain their family, this causes a strain on the child as they grow, increasing the chances for delinquency. Broken families also play a crucial part in adolescent risk, as “a child's initial contact with the world begins with the family. It is the family -- not schools or churches -- that initiates adolescents to societal moral codes (Onwudiwe, 2004).”
Previous study may pay more attention to all victims, rather than children. Children are special, they have different psychological characteristics of adults. They are sensitive to the change of the natural environment and they are pretty vulnerable. Psychological interventions are essential to them after a severe natural
Mental health is recognized as a principal determinant of individual well-being and family relationships in today’s society. Most psychiatric disorders begin in childhood or adolescence, increasing the risk for poor physical health, problems in social relationships, reduced psychological well-being, and financial difficulties. There have been studies to suggest that, across the life course, mental disorder prevalence varies significantly according to race and ethnicity. In a study conducted by (Barrett, D. and Katsiyannis, A) the authors used a sample from the S. Carolina Juvenile Justice Agency to examine the question of race differences in repeat offenders.
Not to mention, that the amount of toxins that young children get exposed to in the inner city is very alarming. One serious toxin is lead, which is affecting the behavior of youths in low-income areas of cities. Lead is a real threat and has been proven to severely damaging the prefrontal lobes while children are developing. Robert Brochin a researcher at Georgetown University states that “Lead exposure during this period can lead to severe neurological and developmental problems that may manifest themselves later in the affected child ‘s life,” (Brochin, pp.3, 2008). Even health clinics put children in these settings at risk because 68 percent of Philadelphia inner-city pediatric clinics had 10 milliliters of lead (Ruboca, pp.655, 1998).
