2008). These consequences accompanied with the violent acts are likely to cause negative effects on the society as a whole (World Health Organization 2011). For instance, employers could experience low productivity and less output from their employees while women 's informal aid networks e.g. families and friends are probable to alter their daily duties to provide aid to victims of violence (Reeves and O 'Leary-Kelly 2007, AuCoin and Beauchamp 2007). This is in addition to the societal expenses related to delivering and maintain health care, justice-related services to people who are victimized including the costs related to the criminal justice response to the accused (Johnson and Dawson 2011).
Postpartum Depression Postpartum depression refers to a kind of depression that some women experience after childbirth (Miller762–5). Postpartum depression is described as a chronic and debilitating psychological condition that is highly characterized with reduced quality life, heavy burden in regard to its treatment and management, and increased risks to a myriad of life-threatening adverse events and complications (Dennis & Dowswell). This disorder in the last years has gained more attention, more and more women suffer. This instant is the most important and beautiful that takes place in the life of a person, but also the most dramatic, so we must respect the times, fears and beliefs of the future mother, so you can help more in this
Stigmatizing involves how society labels or views something, usually provoking negative attitudes towards said thing. It is relevant for nurses/midwives to have a great understanding of stigmatization because in today’s society, stigma can have a very negative impact on many aspects of life such as mental health, sexually transmitted diseases and drug users. People associated with these aspects are some of the most vulnerable members of society and as nurses/midwives it is our job to protect these people from negativity and isolation. Such stigma often results in people disregarding treatment due to fear of embarrassment or being
They believe that their ability to perform in the home space and workplace has been diminished because of illness. Illness can lead to stress on the family unit and in some cases a permanent breakdown may occur (Thomson, et al., 2002). This can leave married women especially having to ‘reconstruct the home space’ in both the physical surroundings inside their home and also the location of their home (The National MS Society, 2015). The importance to reduce a woman’s dependency on others can leave women feeling more isolated than before. Women may be afraid to ask for help or care as doing this, reaffirms them of their burden within
In other words, since they are diagnosed with a medical condition, the individual cannot always fulfil the same duties that a person in good health can. Society then adapts to this situation and allows for a reasonable amount of deviation from behaviour that would be viewed as typical of a well person. Parsons saw the sick role as a form of deviance , or going against societal expectations because a person who is sick has different patterns of behaviours than the norm. He argued that being ‘sick’ means that the sufferer enters a role of ‘sanctioned deviance ’, as people are generally expected to be productive members of society. When a person becomes sick or ill, that individual is not able to perform their usual duties, such as work at a job, go to school or care for family members; this deviance from the usual is positively sanctioned or approved by the community or authority figures.
It becomes a stressful event in the sense that the mother’s life equilibrium becomes disturbed and results in the additional pile of other stressors such as financial problems, social problems, and psychological distress. When this model is applied to lives of mothers of children with cerebral palsy, the severity of the stressor relates well to the level or the type of cerebral palsy, the challenging behaviour. When a child is born with a chronic condition such as cerebral palsy which is incurable and permanent in nature, such event increases the mother’s vulnerability to stressors. Although some mothers are at risk for facing many challenges, there are also mothers who cope positively and find it easier to adapt to this stressful event. Therefore, the findings of this study are likely to show that many mothers of children with cerebral palsy are faced with many challenges in life.
The woman may have become so reliant on the man that to face independence is a traumatic outcome. She may have lost the survival skills necessary to function alone, and will stay because even though there is abuse. She is better off with the man. Also, if there are children involved the woman may fear what this will do to her kids. Destroying the family unit will have an effect on everybody.
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
They might be influenced to seek help in easing their suffering. Another reason against physician-assisted suicide is the idea that if assisted suicide becomes legal, it will get out of hand and target certain people in society. Professor Patricia King states, “Many Americans, particularly the poor, the disabled, the elderly, and members of racial, ethnic minorities- worry that they will be viewed as throwaway people,” (Right to Die).
Sensitive, weak and kind heart women are targets and due to which they finds it difficult for discussing it with their friends. There are various methods that could be used by women for getting out with the relationship and one of the best approach is to take legal assistance. Advocates can be hired and then appropriate actions could be taken against the victim so that this type of abusive behaviour could be legally stopped. One more approach is for taking assistance from friends and family members so that their positive support could be taken for coming out of this abusive relationship. There are various NGO which are working for ensuring better and secure life for women and thus help can be taken from and than on the basis of that better and secure life could be gained for the women.
The message that is most prominent in The Bonesetter 's Daughter is that the lack of communication in relationships is harmful both to the relationship and the people in it. Tan makes this point over and over again using examples of: mothers, daughters, spouses and partners. She shows that when people don 't say to other what they really mean or feel, misinterpretations can lead to hurt feelings, strain in the relationship, damaged sel0images and self-destructive behavior. Than Makes a point that all can be resolved, but usually it takes time and talking. The story also suggest that in youth many things have to learned before on even things to question human intention, or even how their actions may come across to another, through mother and daughter relationships.
