They put forward that changes in the brain chemistry may not be the cause of the mental illness but the effects the mental illness has had on the brain itself. Studies show that stress can affect brain chemistry. The model also does not take into account the individuals personal experiences or recognise the context of the person’s life in relation to gender culture or race. If a person is withdrawn they may not give a lot of information about their issues, this can sometime give the psychiatrist power over the patient to find an efficient and quick therapy that may or may not be the best one, or even an incorrect diagnosis. The patient is not usually actively involved in their own recovery, more of a passive receiver of repairs.
It comes on more slowly than some kinds of dementias. If you ask family members when they noticed the changes, they will have difficulty saying. If there is a sudden onset of memory loss or confusion, it is likely due to another cause, such as stroke, medication side effects, or an infection that is disturbing the person’s thinking or mood. When these conditions are treated, memory sometimes improves as well. Alzheimer’s gradually clog up that connective wiring over time.
“Many of these drugs work by increasing the availability of neurotransmitters, such as norepinephrine or serotonin, which elevate arousal and mood and appear scarce when a person experiences feelings of depression or anxiety. The most commonly prescribed drugs in this group, including Prozac and its cousins Zoloft and Paxil, work by blocking the reabsorption and removal of serotonin from synapses” (Myers et al. 683). Although it is certain that people with depression often get healed after a month of taking antidepressants, the doctors should not abuse antidepressants, since they have side effects and they prevent the patients from recovering the mental illnesses by themselves. “A controversial brain manipulation occurs through shock treatment, or electroconvulsive therapy (ECT)” (Myers et
Everyone of us has various ways to respond with stress, thus there's no one size that fits all the solutions on how to cope up with it. Stress management, however, could help us to cope with stress in healthier ways that have a positive effect on our lifestyle, thoughts, emotions and the way to deal with problems. Also, this helps us to reduce the harmful effects of stress and to prevent it to be out of control again. Healthy or unhealthy ways to cope up with stress could also lead on making the matters worse for the person itself. These are considered as temporary ways to reduce stress, but these can also bring more damage in the long run.
Freud was an influential psychoanalyst during his time. However, his theories were filled with many logical flaws. The main one being that his findings were unscientific since it could not be proven right or wrong. Yet, it was applicable during his time to explain mental illness such as Hysteria. Erikson another psychoanalysis theory was developed because it was something more applicable in psycho-analytics in comparison to his preceder Freud.
Older patients who do not suffer with these confused and delirious behaviours are much more able to communicate their medical wants and needs as well as self monitor their health whilst others that do suffer these behaviours find this process far more difficult, in turn reducing their overall safety due to challenging communication. Patients who do present with confused and delerious tendancies often portray symptoms very similar to that of a UTI, for instance incontinence It can be concluded that older patients who have such behaviour and present all of the symptoms relating to that of UTI must undergo further investigation to prevent misdiagonosis and ineffective treatment such as antibiotics. However the diagnosis is often more difficult with a high risk of health professionals misdiagnosing the patient based upon the assumption that the patient is suffering from a UTI based upon the prevalence of delirium and therefore treating the patient accordingly. This treatment is most often through unnecessarily prescribing antibiotics that are becoming less effective due to antibiotic resistance.One of the most common misdiagonosis has to do with bacteria within the urine. Asymptomatic bacteriueria (ASB) is common within older
Advantages Familiarity People fear change, so if the patient has their own medication, it can reduce anxiety confusion for the individual. As opposed to the patient using a different generic of the drug they usually take. Even a colour difference of a capsule or tablet can influence a person negatively, because it is not what they may be used to. It may contribute to keeping a patient calm and at ease, instead of being on stressed, which may contributes to many other health difficulties. Patients Drug Routine If they have their own medication, they may have a routine for taking it, for example before or after their meals, at certain times throughout the day.
The third treatment that has been used a lot is behavioral therapy, and usually there are no real attempts for this therapy even with its great effectiveness. It focuses on making the autistic person’s surrounding environment, convenient, and how he or she is involved in it. In fact, this type of therapy has proved that it can decrease the severity of the symptoms, and it can help the patients to live a better
“The approach is described as “integrative” when different art techniques are intentionally used in combination with traditional medicines to promote improved health.” Like any treatment, there are limitations to expressive therapy in treatment and intervention. While expressive therapies have been applied to all age groups, to most mental and therapeutic issue, and to diverse settings, there are customers who may not benefit by these modalities for different reasons. In the first place, a few people, often adults, might be unwilling to take part in an expressive modality in treatment since they believe that they are not "innovative" or can't create something that is "imaginative." Therapists starting expressive activities as interventions may furthermore experience resistance to engage by clients who see themselves as unfit to utilize imagination, who are on edge about self-expression, or who are impervious to active participation. Moreover, and ironically, those individuals with wide involvement in art, music, or dance will not be able to give up on learned rules about self-expression and might be repressed in their spontaneity in therapy when requested to express themselves in a specific
When healthcare professionals provide prescriptions to family members this can be seen an unethical in regard to this principle. Because these practitioners do not typically provide the proper paper work after prescribing family members a medication, this can be seen as inappropriate. The principles of equality and need play into this situation. It is unequal treatment when it comes to differentiating the patient from the family member when prescribing treatment. The practitioner may give the family member a higher maintenance remedy that has a higher effectiveness than the remedies typically given in order to assure a recovery.
