In The Uncanny, Freud strongly emphasizes the study and beauty of the fearful and the terrifying. He elicits this subject as what is left behind of aesthetics. Aesthetics is the theory of quality of feeling, which essentially includes positive and negative feelings. However, this theory, in its existence, has neglected to include the uncanny, preferring to concentrate on beauty and, generally, on more positive emotions. In Freud’s essay, he glorifies the subject of the uncanny by examining and elaborating on the feelings evoked by anxiety and why they are crucial in the minds of individuals.
Compare/Contrast Essay Chelsea Cain, a famous novelist once said, “I’ve always been more interested in what happens after the bad thing has happened-the fallout of the bad thing, when the people are already damaged. I’m less interested in seeing people when they’re fine and following their journey to becoming damaged” (Brainy Quotes). People can never see the good in people they see the one mistake they have made. Hester, and the woman form the barrio make one mistake and the rest of their life are judged by it. Nathaniel Hawthorne author of The Scarlet Letter, and Estela Trambley, author of “The Burning” are both similar stories by using the comparison of the townspeople, being unexpected by the church and finally seeking happiness by the
While mankind has made substantial progress in ridding the world of diseases, mental illnesses are still prominent, and often overlooked. In the novel Wuthering Heights, Emily Brontë highlights illnesses caused by tensions in order to construct a world where mental health problems and internal struggles take on a life of their own. In the case of Catherine Earnshaw Linton and Heathcliff Earnshaw, the body follows the mind 's descent into distress, with mental illness inflating strenuous circumstances. On the surface, the fevers and hallucinations are nothing more than a plot point orchestrated to spawn grief. However, upon further analysis, it is apparent that the illness represents far more than physical afflictions.
The substance abuse category has removed as the committee argues that there not be enough evidence of an intermediate state between substance use and substance dependence. The DSM–5 definitions of substance use disorder, “a cluster of cognitive, behavioral, and physiological symptoms indicating that the individual continues using the substance despite significant substance-related problems” this definition used to refer to substance addiction (American Psychiatric Association, 2013, p. 483). Addiction, substance use disorder, and dependence all refer to a chronic drug-taking condition, and for these terms are used with that intended definition. Substance abuse is now only used for research specific to that occurrence. A common clinical conception of alcohol dependence is that it is chronic, and also the plan of impaired management
The value of non-maleficence, or, ‘to do no harm’ prohibits the infliction of harm and is correlated to effective pain management, as poorly managed pain causes harm to the patient. This harm includes anxiety, and possibly depression, related to suffering pain. By failing to reasonably treat a patient in pain, this results in harm. Persistent inadequately treated pain has both physical and psychological influences on the patient (Brennan, Carr & Cousins, 2007). Failing to act is a form of abandonment according to Carr (2001).
Government expenditures on futile supply reduction strategies and incarceration displace more cost-effective and evidence-based investments in demand and harm reduction. The international drug control system was founded with two core goals. First, it sought to reduce the negative health consequences generated by drugs. Second, it promised to guarantee access to essential medicines. Neither of these aims has been achieved.
As was explained in the essay question, “culture-bound syndromes are generally limited to specific societies or culture areas and are localized, folk, diagnostic categories that frame coherent meanings for certain repetitive, patterned and troubling sets of experiences and observations”. Culture-bound syndromes are a combination of psychiatric and somatic symptoms that are localized to a specific area. The essay will critically discuss the validity of culture-bound syndromes using Anorexia Nervosa as a case study. Anorexia Nervosa can be defined as a “serious psychological condition in which a person is obsessed with reducing weight so does not eat” ( Surgenor and Maguire, 2013: 1). Anorexia Nervosa is a serious eating disorder that results
Nurses come across several ethical problems in the line of nursing practice. An alertness of essential ethical concepts helps nurses to use reason to work through these problems (DeLaune & Ladner, 2002). This essay is based on a case scenario of an older woman, who has been considered as an addict and is prescribed a pain treatment of alternating a weak analgesic with a placebo. A placebo is sham medication (often take the form of sugar pills, saline injections, or minuscule doses of drugs) or procedure designed with no beneficial effect based on their physical or chemical properties (American Society for Pain
We also learn that from how similarly how insane one’s mind can get through guilt we also see how differently both the thematic topic of guilt, were guilt usually reveals its secrets can be represented. Through, “The Tell Tale Heart” We see the narrator describe his conditions as stable and refuses to believe in his problems. As it states in Poe’s story, “TRUE! nervous, very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why WILL you say that I am mad? The disease had sharpened my senses, not destroyed, not dulled them.
From the beginning of the play, Shakespeare emphasizes the importance of sleep as a natural healer of the mind. Through his portrayal of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth as they both have to face the weight of their own guilt, he underscores that their lack of sleep is a direct result of their guilty actions. Ultimately, Shakespeare’s depiction of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth’s mental deterioration as a result of their guilt alludes to the idea that only pure actions can allow one to prosper and be free from guilt. In contemporary society, where it is easy to give into wicked immoral temptations, it is essential for readers to understand that in order to live a healthy and peaceful life, it is necessary to refrain from giving into evil desires. Otherwise, suffering the same fate as Macbeth and Lady Macbeth could be a dangerous reality for many
The disease model of addition is the foundation of Narcotics Anonymous. The disease model posits that the addict has an incurable disease much like diabetes or an allergy; thus, exposure to a substance is viewed as the primary cause of psychological addiction (Narcotics Anonymous, 1983; Jenkins, 2016). N.A. is identified with the spiritual model of treatment (Jenkins & Finner-Williams, 2016). The spiritual model of therapy views addiction as a disease to which persons are defenseless without a “higher-power.” In this view, treatment focuses on the resignation of self, and instead, instruction from a higher power and a spiritual awakening toward recovery (Jenkins & Finner-Williams, 2016).
Some believe that this undermines the role of a physician as a healer. This argument is somewhat valid, but still should not make Physician Assisted Suicide illegal. The way I see it, a physician is always there to help it may be killing but the Physician is just prescribing the dose and the patient takes the pill on his/her own. Another argument is that a physician who helps a patient commit suicide, breaks the trust and bonds between a patient and his/her doctor. Again, we have a valid point.
Thulia thinks Trump won 't do much about the problem. I think that doctors should give patients more information when prescribing opioids to patients. Many people that just had a painful surgery take opioids to stop their pain and then shortly get addicted after from taking the pills, I believe people would not get as tempted, and feel like it is ok to take opioids, if they knew they were highly addictive. Allen, a recovering addict, had to research her symptom to find out why she was having this temptation to take these pain killing pills when she was not even in pain. Allen’s doctor never told her about the danger of these “painkillers” but once Allen found out, she was concerned about herself, and knew she was addicted and in
According to “ killing the pain not the patients: palliative care vs. assisted suicide” both Dr. Doerflinger and Gomez discuss what the pain control substance does and the difference between the two. The misconception of morphine side effect of causing death to patients is wrong to an extent, it is said that those who use it and are healthy and are not going through any kind of pain will probably die from it however those who are dealing with severe pain will have a less likely chance of dying because the drug will hit the pain receptors also once the patients continuously uses the drug eventfully the patient will build up tolerance so that the side affect will not effect him/her. Many do say that eventually the patients do die from this treatment, so it can be considered the same thing. However the main problem with this particular form of care is that it is not readily available for those who want it. As Gomez and Doerflinger discuss this topic it is obvious that they want the best for everyone in such a way that it will benefit both views to that of euthanasia and physician assisted suicide with the intention to relieve pain and not kill
Well, the real question is, what doesn 't a treatment center have to offer an addicted individual? It can help those who are addicted to drugs overcome their addiction and come out as an entirely different person. When you enter a treatment center for drug addiction, you have to first learn to get off of the drugs. Getting off of the drugs might seem like an impossible
