Eleanor’s control over Raymond and ability to force him to work against his own self-interests is something that had been going on long before Raymond ever left for war. During the presentation Dr. Yen Lo talks about how one of the issues with brainwashing is that the subject “won’t behave in a manner that goes against his self-interests or is in moral opposition to his beliefs”, this is then followed by Raymond executing two members of his platoon. Raymond’s actions indicate that due to his mother's conditioning earlier in life, he is much more susceptible to brainwashing and more willing to do things that he would never do
Within the book, we are shown Sexual Harassment, murder (or at least intent), animal abuse, and while not a crime, lying to a parent. All of these on their own qualify for a category of psychopathy, but all of them demonstrate a wide and varied number of infractions of this crew. Noboru spying on his mother, is certainly sexual harassment, and constitutes
“But studies have shown that for every child who may derive some benefit from the competition, hundreds of others suffer damage to their self-esteem and develop warped values about their bodies, which often lead to anorexia or bulimia.” (Child Beauty Pageants Should Be Eliminated) Parent’s are so focused on winning they do not even think about their children 's health anymore that the children are starting to have warped values about their bodies. Children beauty pageant is considered child abuse because it puts the children and the children’s health in
A lack of action from law enforcement, in regards to misogynistic cyber-bullying cases, stems from decades of social misogynistic biases and misogynistic law enforcement protocols observed in early domestic violence cases. One example of an early misogynistic law enforcement protocol is given in the book, “Hate Crimes in Cyberspace” by Daniel Keats Citron; “Police training guides instructed officers that it would be unreasonable to remove abusive husbands from the home because they were simply responding to their wives ‘nagging.’ Psychiatrists reinforced this view with a medical diagnosis: battered wives allegedly suffered from ‘feminine masochism’ that propelled them to nag their husbands into beating them; they derived pleasure from the abuse,
to lose, to make a mistake.” And we learn the most through failure. Merryman continues on with her argument by using multiplies different types studies she has found. Merryman also use multiple scientific studies she has found to help her prove her point. One of the many studies Merryman has found that overpraising a child on their actions can have negative effects on them especially the ones with high self-esteem:” In a longitudinal study, when parents regularly overpraised their children’s performances, their children were more likely to be narcissistic two years later.” And while others have
Another example of clinical practice that raises legal, moral and ethical conflict when a PWD refuse to take prescribed medication is ‘therapeutic lying’. Therapeutic lying is the practice of deliberately deceiving patients by giving false information for intentions considered to be in the best interest of the patient. Considerably, research revealed that in RACF, almost 96% of all staff acknowledges lying to a PWD. Additionally, 66% of psychiatrist evaluated had sanctioned the use of therapeutic lying with a PWD by carers (Culley et al., 2013; Sprinks, 2013). Factors that contribute to the propagation of this deceptive practice include: (1) medication compliance; (2) ease the PWD and family stress; (3) improve compliance; (4) to save time;
Gardner’s concept of PAS is based on his own clinical observations and research, in which he believed that the recent increase of allegations of sexual abuse brought in custody disputes where the result of a child suffering from PAS makes false allegations of abuse created by the alienating parent (usually the mother). A. The PAS Doctrine Gardner defined PAS as a disorder, in which the child during a custody dispute begins a campaign of denigration against the targeted parent, without justification. The disorder results from “the combination of a programming (brainwashing) parent’s indoctrinations and the child’s own contributions to the vilification of [a] target[ed] parent.” When referring to brainwashing he refers to the active and conscious attempt of the alienating parent “to deliberately bring about the
As one of the children from around the world that was once a victim of spanking and as a science major and hopefully a future doctor, I must say that I am torn on the topic of spanking. My research has led me to different opinions on spanking, it has taught me the good use of spanking in child’s discipline which many adults have tried to convince me of several times. My research also showed me how spanking can lead to the destruction of a child by damaging a child’s brain and making them prone to mental diseases and lowering their intelligence and memory. It also showed me how spanking can lead to physical abuse and bad behaviors. Combined with personal experience, my research made me see that not all spanking is necessarily bad for children.
Due to their parents having legal ownership of the child, they can decide for their child to participate in this practice, without the child’s consent. This is harmful because it means that even children of all ages can be subjects in this malpractice, if their parents decide. A landmark example of the failure of conversion therapy is the story of Kirk Murphy, a five year old victim of the practice. From a young age, Kirk exhibited behaviors that were stereotypical to women. Psychologist George Rekers prescribed that his parents take the approach of praising him when he acted stereotypically male, and ignoring, spanking, or punishing him when he exhibited feminine behavior.
Some reasons, of many, is that hazing is not being reported, is because the victims of hazing see it as a right of passage (act of initiation, a trial). Thus, they do not see a reason to report this to a teacher, manager or the police. The ones in charge of administering the hazing warn their victims by telling them that it will get increasingly worse, harder and oftentimes punished if the actives find out that they have spoken with an authority. Hazing is compared to an epidemic infection, because of its fast growing, people have started to take notice of this. Yet even with growing concern amongst the masses of people in the world and victims, hazing cases go overlooked and if hazing isn’t reported as readily as it
