Music Therapy helps children with ADHD in reducing anxiety, depression and anxiety. Quoted from the study of Orenstien (2011) “Music is an age-old way to heal, and it works exceedingly well for children with ADHD,” says Doris Jeanette, PsyD, a psychologist in Philadelphia. “Music reduces the anxiety you have in your body, and when you’re talking about kids with ADHD symptoms, all they have is anxiety.” The studies above was related to ADHD and discussed how important the importance of music in making a calm atmosphere for the child in order for them to improve attention, increase focus for academic purposes and to reduce their hyperactivity. The researcher relate the literature above to this study because it focuses about the children with ADHD and what is the effect of Music Therapy in term of reduce their restlessness/anxiety or impulsivity/hyperactivity and to increase their
Listening to music promotes word recall. Researchers have found that specific music genres have a powerful effect on word recall. When information is studied with specific background music, it makes it easier for people to remember simply by playing the song mentally. Research also shown clearly that a child’s memory development is affected by whether they took music lessons or not. (Mammarella,
However, the authors were not able to find significant evidence to prove their second hypothesis. Frequent adolescent dating did not necessarily help young adults achieve lower depressive trajectories. A higher number in relationships did not always increase an individual's resilience to depression. In fact, subjects recovered more completely when they spent time being single. This allowed them to focus of personal goals and
He was hospitalized, preparing for open brain surgery, when he was rudely interrupted by his teacher’s visit, with a number two pencil and a standardized test. His school still expected him to complete the standardized test. (cite your source for this)Testing has reached that point where it has become unacceptable because now “twenty five states mandate one formal assessment test in kindergarten.” Testing is no problem when it’s being provided to obtain knowledge but when it has reached the point where testing is just replacing students with a number that’s a problem. A score doesn't always show the comparison of an uneducated and educated or even
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.
(2009) did not support mindfulness as a treatment for substance use disorders. It may prove helpful in increasing the coping mechanism of patients and to improve their control but not very successful as a treatment. On the contrary, a study by Brewer, J.A., Elwafi, H.M., & Davis, J.H. (2013) states that a new field of modern treatment MT has shown efficacy in treatment of addictions, probably by affecting the craving levels Conclusion From the above mentioned researches we can see that the practice of mindfulness is helpful in many areas of life and it is seen to be effective in reducing stress and strengthening of the coping mechanism of pupils. Further Research More research is needed using standardized sleep scales and methods, with particular attention to the importance of MBSR home practice and affect of mindfulness on physical health of cancer
The reason I have chosen to research this topic is because I originally come from a high school in which the arts were poorly funded. Therefore, I have experienced first hand the struggles a high school with a underfunded music program goes through, which is largely why I am motivated to argue on the behalf of students from high schools like my own. Currently, I am a vocal performance major at the University of Louisville and have witnessed how a strong music program versus a weak one can make a dynamic change in the student body. Music has always been something that I hold near to my heart and it has taught me a variety of life lessons and skills that are beneficial to anyone regardless of what career they choose. I firmly believe that every student should have the privilege of being able to reap the benefits of a school music program because the benefits are simply too obvious to be ignored and when a student is denied this privilege it is
She’s old.”), family members who were unwilling to face mental illness within the family itself, or societal beliefs and biases that stigmatize people with mental illness. Exposure or familiarity The delineation between this category and the categories in the first theme related to the images associated with mental illness was in some ways an artificial one. Many of the comments fit into both categories. Answers included in this section represent those faculty members who specifically identified more experience that is extensive with mentally ill individuals as more positively influential than short-term contact. Eight sources with twelve references reported that experience and familiarity with mental illness tended to increase comfort and decrease fear.
Even as Western culture no longer relies on tribalism for survival and lauds individual autonomy, adolescent 's bodies may be pushing them to conform to peer pressure in order to protect their health later in life. How They Studied This: Like the Movie Boyhood, Without the Cameras The researchers ' most recent round of health tests was done on 171 people 27 years of age, comparing their body mass index, depressive symptoms, anxiety, and overall health. But these are the same 171 people that the researchers have been following for the past 14 years, starting when they were in 7th or 8th grade. Researchers chose this diverse group of 171 early teenagers from all different backgrounds and socio-economic classes. Each
It is important to understand, though, that depression is not a condition that people can successfully overcome themselves. Depression is a real medical disorder, like anorexia, epilepsy, and autism. It is strongly recommended that people who suffer from depression for long periods of time get professional help. To date, relatively few studies have focused on the effects of dance/movement therapy on people with depression. However, the results have pointed in a positive direction.
I am currently a senior in the Occupational Therapy program. As I prepare to go out on fieldwork in the upcoming semesters, reflecting on how music relates to occupational therapy has had a benefit in my thinking of my future job. I have had the amazing opportunity to be working with children with disabilities for many years. Most of the children I have worked with have a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder. Autism Spectrum Disorder is defined as, “a complex developmental disability; signs typically appear during early childhood and affect a person’s ability to communicate, and interact with others” (“About Autism | Autism Society" 1).
In chapter 4 in the Pathways to Resiliency: Black and Latinos Families in America textbook I read that formation and establishing intimate relationships are important psychosocial tasks during teenage years and young adulthood. One possible explanation for this research is the assumption that youthful relationships tend to be casual and short term in nature. It is crucial to examine romantic relationships between young people because they play as important role in their future relationships. In one study found that many young people held unrealistic expectations to be related to decreased relationship satisfaction and stability among adults. However, studies have not examined young mothers’ relationships expectations, their findings indicated
