While some might have trouble staying optimistic and may think that the best way to respond to conflict is to just avoid it, people should keep a positive mindset because it helps people cope more easily during arduous times, it has beneficial impacts on others, and having a positive outlook has many health benefits. Having a positive outlook on a situation has many health benefits that include reducing stress, living longer, and gaining self-confidence. For instance, the Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research states, “One theory is
This is achieved through adding a sense of realism as to how happiness should be experienced. Thus, it provides tangible means for people to grasp an abstract concept such as happiness. As a result, this enables her to persuade readers to take up her advice. For example, she draws links between the need to experience happiness with others through studies and real-life evidence regarding the lack of the time spent with others e.g., only 24 hours a year spent socialising (Whippman, 2017). This shows us the real-life implication of our actions in search of isolated happiness which has caused an unintended outcome on us as we are supposed to share joyous moments together.
Hi Tekia! • Constructive feedback on the Intervention Plan detailed in the Case Summary: Your decision to use a solution-focus approach with Abby seems appropriate for the behaviors she has displayed. Abby gives the impression that she is trying. I am sure she has the knowledge of what would make her life better, even though she may need considerable help describing the details of her desired life. Her willingness to consider your assistance to make home life better brings awareness that she already possesses the minimal skills necessary to create solutions for herself.
In “Dear Miss Breed” by Joanne Oppenheim, sixteen-year-old Louise Ogawa wrote in her letters to Miss Breed about how even though the living conditions were ruthless, she was determined to see the light. Positivity can affect not only one’s self, but those around them as well. In the face of responding to conflict, positivity can reduce stress and anxiety, help health, and provide a better environment. During times of conflict, positivity has been proven to reduce both stress and anxiety. In an article from the Mayo Clinic Staff, they commented that “Indeed, some studies show that personality traits such as optimism and pessimism can affect many areas of your well-being” (Mayo Clinic Staff).
In many cases, the objective theory is better because it is not dependent on only one factor. So, if we use this theory with regards to the refusing patient, it can be reasonably argued that saving the patient would allow them to continue a life making autonomous decisions. I agree that this would produce a better outcome than respecting the patient’s wishes of letting them die unnecessarily. However, I don’t believe this to be true for all cases. I believe that this argument is dependent upon the case because sometimes respecting a patient’s wishes can produce a better outcome than not respecting
The meaning of the scarlet letter even changes because of her generosity and altruism: “such helpfulness was found in her, --so much power to do, and power to sympathize, --that many people refused to interpret the scarlet A by its original signification. They said that it meant Able; so strong was Hester Prynne” (149). All the hardships Hester goes through, the majority of which are attributed to the letter, allow her to be a more understanding and caring
Regular visits to the chiropractor will aid you to treat pain and also prevent it. For many individuals, a chiropractor visit is just useful during times of symptoms of pain. Nonetheless, if you visit a chiropractor consistently, you will see that you will feel great overall and be not as likely to experience pain. It is a matter of wellness treatment rather than treating symptoms. You will be in a much better place to prevent future diseases as well as negative symptoms if you spend some time making healthy decisions.
Running away won’t solve your problems. Connor and Risa were able to survive their horrid circumstances because they were smart, and trusted each other. They were the best of friends and had each others back. I believe that if one has someone they can count on, be it friends or family, it makes you strong enough to survive anything. I also believe the book emphasized how important it is to treasure the life you have, because we do not know what may come tomorrow.
Positive Coping For those individuals who deal with the challenges of life with less success will loss than other people who cope with the same types of events, this is what positive coping focus on. In psychology, coping means to invest own conscious effort, to solve personal and the interpersonal problems, and it is also linked to minimize or tolerate stressful life events and daily hassles. In other words, reduce burden of short-term immediate stress and contribute to long-term stress relief is the effective of coping. The long-term will appear when positive coping helps to build resources that will inhibit or buffer future stressful challenges. For example, better health status, greater subjective well-being, or helping to foster more intimate
Since “timely response” is the initial phase in the “chain of survival”, the subsequent steps are more likely to yield favorable outcomes. In less acute circumstances, long term outcome of understaffing can also be detrimental to patient condition. Often, when a staff member is overwhelmed with the workload, nursing actions which are perceived less critical may be pushed to the back burner. Debilitated patients may not be turned and repositioned resulting in hospital acquired pressure ulcers, which not only affects patient outcome, but also taxes the hospital
The use of juxtaposition to contrast Pearl’s grace to the cottage’s depressing nature expresses Pearl’s presence as happy and bright, giving Hester the strength to continue living with optimism for a better future. Although Hester is depressed and living in a gloomy cabin, her daughter brings happiness and hope into her life.
Negative reinforcement is taking away something you do not like to increase the specific (or desired) behavior, to do this I would feel happy for her whenever she receives something even though she doesn’t like it. By doing this I would be taking away her negative thoughts about that item, and make her feel happy and thankful for it. Between positive and negative reinforcement I tend and prefer to use positive reinforcement because I like giving her something and seeing her happy, then she would still want to continue with the great behavior I am encouraging her to do. Of all four forms of operant conditioning: negative and positive reinforcement and negative and positive punishment, positive punishment is what I use most and is most effective in dealing with Hoda’s annoying behavior, because she mostly listens to me when I talk to her more of what her undesired behavior is, and that it isn’t a good behavior. By showing her a consequence after the undesired behavior, it would make the behavior less likely to happen in the future.
This process of simply choosing alternatives rather than keeping the patients incarcerated is effective. This also decreases the risk of dangerous occurrences happening to the public-- once these patients are finally allowed to return, of course, they are less likely to behave in ways that may harm themselves or someone else. In order to fully maximize the potential of the program, it is crucial that proper tests are administered to assure the patient’s true need for such programs. These tests should include morality tests, in which a simulated scenario allows their decisions to be projected for others to see. This would also defend this 3-step process against the idea that many criminals may plead mentally insane to avoid a more extensive punishment that they may actually deserve.
McMann made this condition useful in her novel. It’s great knowing that a disorder can be a life saver rather than being looked down upon. I also think the introduction of OCD in Kendall Fletcher showed us that we all have characteristics as human beings. We are all different. Sometimes the things that people perceive as flaws are still beautiful; and that the unique qualities that each of us possess can teach us something that we never knew before.
