It is essential in overcoming anger inflicted to us by others. Seeking revenge offers no solution. The best form of revenge comes through forgiveness as a process of healing. The desire to inflict the same pain we have endured on the person or people who have inflicted pain on us is purely revenge. In Kindred, by Octavia Butler the protagonist, Dana
A tortious liability is a civil wrong, which arises from the breach of a duty primarily fixed by law: this duty is towards persons generally and its breach is redressible by an action for unliquidated damages. One of the liabilities under tort law is negligence which is one of the most common liabilities casted upon medical professionals. Such a liability draws upon unliquidated damages, which are damages not previously determined and are to be decided by the court based upon the particular facts of the case. It is in this very manner, that, the victims of medical negligence are compensated and also this is where the medical fraternity is abused upon by filing for frivolous legal suits. Before moving further, it is important to understand the term ‘negligence’ with reference to tortious liability.
Of society’s many issues, one of the most pressing in terms of public health is the common occurrence of misdiagnosis in mental health illnesses. Mental illnesses, more specifically looking at mental illnesses in adolescents, are being too frequently misdiagnosed and there are patients being given inaccurate prescriptions that often worsen their symptoms and can have lasting negative effects on their health. The concept of misdiagnosed mental illness and inaccurate medications being prescribed is an issue where some say government regulation of the medications is necessary, while others say government regulation is unnecessary. Several studies have been conducted to determine the effects of misdiagnosis in mental illness for cases of bipolar
The retributive theory of punishment follows that punishment is used as a means of retributive justice. It is intended to rebalance any unjust advantage gained by the offender by ensuring that the offender suffers a loss. It is viewed as a way of getting even with the offender. The suffering of the offender does not have any restorative benefits to the victim but it is a desired goal. Offenders are punished because they deserve to be punished.
If a wrongful act is done deliberately, the possibility of negligence is ruled out automatically. In strict/absolute liability, the person responsible for causing harm is found guilty of wrongdoing, regardless of whether they are negligent or not. Characteristics of Tort Claims In order for a victim of a tort to file a legal claim in tort and receive compensation for their injuries or property damage, the following four elements of negligence must be satisfied: 1.There must be a duty imposed by law for the protection of other individuals against harm. Without the existence of this legal duty of care, the plaintiff cannot collect damages. 2.Another requirement that has to be met in tort claims is the breach of the duty of care.
She claims that it is “motivated in part by an ethical materialism that insists on articulating the suffering of the specific, concrete human beings who struggle for existent under conditions that foreclose on the possibilities for happiness and peace” (Hewitt, 85). In other terms, the only way to have humane and ethical relations in society “would be to negate the physical suffering of even the least of its members, and to negate the internal reflexive forms of that suffering” (Adorno,
This is particularly true for the children being trafficked when they are still in the process of mental development. Even though some victims may be rescued from their predators and recover from physical injuries, they may still live under shadow. For those who are sold by their families or deceived by their friends, it would be difficult to believe in someone else any more after the dreadful experience of being trafficked. “Trust is a word that victims of human trafficking may easily forget” (Sheikholeslami, 2011). With an absence of an element of trust, loneliness and insecurity will be sustained, and the victims may not allow social workers or psychologists to help, making the rehabilitation more
True this might be painful but the guilt we feel, it’s a good thing. We must allow ourselves to feel the pain, the guilt, the shame; the day that hurting another person as a result of our own mistakes doesn’t bother us is the day we’ve got real problems. So what does happen after we make the inevitable mistakes we do? For all our justifications of making mistakes because we’re human, where we differ is with the choices we make after we falter. There’re some who feel so ashamed by the hurt they’ve caused others that they fall into the never-ending cycle of self-loathing and guilt that they’re doomed to repeat them.
PWPD), but also other people associated with them (e.g. parents, caregivers) through stigma-by-association (Goffman, 1963) or affiliated stigma (i.e. self-stigma among associates) (Mak & Cheung, 2008). When PWPD perceive that the stigmatizing experiences and emotions felt by them would also be affecting their caregivers/ companions during the process of negotiating with architectural inaccessibility, they might blame themselves and intensify their psychological pain (Yoshioka & Schustack,
