All studies used the Neff Self-Compassion scale (Neff, 2003) which showed a large effect size for the relationship between compassion and psychopathology. If CFT was applied Laura, this could help her subside her negative emotions of guilt and shame as self-compassion has been shown to be positively correlated with self-competence (Neff, Hsien & Dejitterat, 2005). Therefore, CFT could help Laura increase her motivation for her “passion for literature and writing”. Kuyken et al (2010) found that when using compassion to treat depressive symptoms, CFT showed less severe symptoms 15 months after remission.

The Comfort Theory by Katherine Kolcaba would address not only pain, but help the nurse understand anxiety levels of the patient and parents, therapeutic interventions such as the use of ice packs, warm blankets, distraction techniques such as blowing bubbles and having parents engaged with the child who may be experiencing pain (McEwen & Wills, 2014). This theory also shows the importance of how families view the operations of the institute and if their child is not having their pain addressed then this may result in a negative connotation of the hospital. The overall goal of this theory looks at the outcomes of comfort and shows that comfort can be measurable, positive, nurse specific, and positive in nature (McEwen & Wills,
We have seen in multiple studies and research how stress can affect and directly even cause chronic health conditions, and that health psychology teaches us to look at our health in a unique way than the biomedical approach to disease. Other factors can contribute to a disease state such as diet and genetics. In order to treat the patient in the health continuum—a mind/body approach—it is necessary to look at all these factors as integral parts of the disease state. The mom and her physician can look at a variety of ways to help with her stress, such as dietary changes away from the processed foods and doing some research into ways to eat healthier foods on a budget. They can also look at medications to treat her hypertension, but along with that perhaps counseling is in order as well to help her deal with her stress.

While the importance of good technique can never be over-stated in a dynamic game like boxing, it is equally important that the boxer has enough endurance to delay the onset of fatigue. Since sports like boxing and MMA require high bursts of intense energy, it is crucial for these athletes to boost their cardiovascular stamina and muscular endurance. The drills discussed on this page intend to optimize an athlete’s cardiovascular endurance, and at the same time, enhance his athletic skills, such as, footwork,agility, coordination and stamina. The workouts are especially useful for improving the effectiveness of various hand combinations. With the help of our resistance bands, we intend to help the athletes pack powerful punches and kicks for boxing and MMA specific movements.
