Functionalism will relate to my field because I intend to work in mental health for social work. In my field, I will need to know why certain people behave the way they do in order to help them as well as understand their mental disorders and the processes that come with them. I will have to use the concept of functionalism to help the patients and people I work with to decide the best way to approach each person to their individual
17. Carolyn and Taylor (2011) found the various programs designed involving teachers and parents to reinforce prevention behavior for substance abuse. The study focusses on various risk factors that could result in inducing behaviors related to substance abuse. If the prevention techniques are implemented properly then chance of young adolescent involved in substance abuse reduces. Thus, parents and teachers play a very important role in reinforcing appropriate behavior in
In order for the intervention to be successful, there need to be goals established at the beginning of treatment when working with childhood trauma. Long-term goals for childhood trauma include developing an awareness of how childhood issues have affected addiction, learn how childhood trauma resulted in interpersonal problems and addictions, maintain a program of recovery that is free from addiction and the negative effects, and resolve past issues so that there is less fear, anger and depression which will assist in the individual having a greater sense of self-worth and confidence (Perkinson, Jongsma, & Bruce, 2014). The following table provides objectives and therapeutic interventions for childhood trauma as discussed by Perkinson et al
Firstly it is a highly structured, evidence based-treatment that aims to address patient’s current problems. Moreover, the treatment is goal oriented, and is collaborative in nature. Lastly, the clinician is interested in improving the patients distressing emotional states and unhelpful patterns of thinking and behaviour. There are as many as 16 different theories associated with the cognitive behavioural model. However, the CBT model we will be using in this work is based on the Cognitive Therapy which is also known as CBT.
There are strengths of psychoanalysis. Firstly, reconstruction of personality. Therapists act as a guideline to assist or help clients to enable them to rebuild their organized pattern of behavioral characteristics. Therapists enable clients to explore wide range of perspectives and understandings when they encounter life problems which they find it difficult to
It was because of that judge that he was able to make the necessary changes to his life. Upon doing some research on the subject I found it interesting that many individuals have “deficits [which] are associated with damage to specific areas in the cerebral cortex, hippocampus, and corpus callosum” ( Schwartz-Bloom, Ph.D., Zieff, , M.Ed. and Williams, Ph.D.) parts of the brain. Due to the damage individuals with FASD have a hard time controlling impulsivity. While reading about how George’s dad was abusive made me wonder if he had FASD as well or was just a plain
In the nursing profession, we must display effective communication skills. Our nursing career have communication demands such as communicating with family members regarding a patient’s status, giving a detailed end of shift report, or simply communicating with other staff members while delegating duties. “Much of our communication occurs through nonverbal channels that must be examined in the context of the verbal content. Generally, if verbal and nonverbal messages are incongruent, the receiver will believe the nonverbal message” Marquis & Houston (2015). I will reflect an incident that’s a demonstration of ineffective communication skills in a workplace.
Family Resiliency According to Greeff (2013), the family should analyze and identify the strengths, weaknesses, and resources of each member that can be associated with the adjustment and adaptation as to the diagnosis of a child with a disability, specifically the developmental disability. Family resilience helps to improve the family interventions and let them know how the families cope with the feeling and experiences of having a child with a disability. Some of the ways how family resilience has shown are by the acceptance of the situation, positive communication within the family bound, commitment to the family unit, a positive attitude toward new experiences and challenges to day-to-day life situation, and family adaptation. The connection of the family was an essential factor that makes a compelling adaptation, adjustment, and resiliency of the family. Although sometimes it is hard to accept the fact of having a child with a disability quickly, still, they overcome through their faith in God and commitment as a family.
(Hagan and Thompson 2014) Augmentative and alternative communication is an “intervention approach” which uses communication boards with symbols such as PECS, manual signs for instance LAMH, and the use of computer devices that “speak and incorporate the child 's full communication abilities.” (Romski and Sevcik, 2005) It is important when using manual signs that the RNID understands the meaning of the signs that the service user is portraying. This can help the person with an intellectual disability to self-report. The RNID should try to get extract as much information as possible from the individual with regard to their pain. This can be achieved by using visual aids or pointing to the pain source. It is extremely important and beneficial to develop a therapeutic relationship between the nurse and patient through alternative communication as mutual trust and respect is formed.
A public health issue that I would be most interested in when it comes to developing a public health campaign is the cost and stigma that is associated with mental health. Mental health is best defined as the experiencing of any problems that is related to ones social, emotional, and psychological well-being. Throughout a person’s life different events and experiences such as trauma and genetics can alter how someone can go about living their life. Other factors that also come into play is gender, race, social economic class, and religious beliefs. The need for this campaging is to bring about awareness and to start more conversations in efforts to make people feel comfortable when it comes to seeking help.
The most appropriate Evidence Based Intervention (EBI) for this research study question is psychoeducation. Psychoeducational interventions examine cognitive and behavioral skills that focus on the individual’s understanding, knowledge, and expression about a particular topic (Llanque & Enriquez, 2012; Morano & Bravo, 2002). In addition, psychoeducation offers educational material on certain problem areas and sills on how to cope with these problems (Hepworth, Rooney, Rooney, & Storm-Gottfried, 2012). For this research topic, psychoeducation is used to increase caregivers knowledge about the progression and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease to improve awareness of supportive resources that are available, to develop coping skills, and to enrich
After completing the readings in Chapters fourteen, fifteen, and sixteen, the Child and Family Services is the agencies I pursue to be employed. Gladding and Newsome (2014) address several communities have nonprofit agencies who specialize in treating the of children and adolescents (Pg.369) Multiple agencies funding accumulates from United way, religiously affiliated organizations, charities, private endowments, and/or grants (Gladding & Newsome, 2014, Pg. 369). Gladding and colleague state, Clinical mental health counselors who work in children and family agencies are to acquire to obtain a comprehensive apprehension of the systems-based counseling. Unfortunately, a disadvantage in behalf of managing children and adolescents who are experiencing
Since many people are anxious about losing their mental health from dementia, anxiety is common. Hypnosis helps to boost relaxation so that you can focus again. At the University of Liverpool, hypnosis for dementia was shown to slow down dementia. It also increased quality of life. It boosted the immune system and blood flow to the mind.
Then, in another scholarly article, “The Role of The Pediatric Nurse in Promoting Pediatric Right to Consent,” gives specific characteristics that nurses should look for in children to determine how capable they are. Which consist of, “competence, voluntariness, disclosure, recommendation, understanding, decision and authorization” (292). It also proposes that nurses should be able to judge the child’s education level and use it to teach them about their health at a quantity that is appropriate. Which will allows the kid to have more of a say in the circumstances than if the nurse were to talk to him or her at a higher
Change commonly derives from conflict, and if this study can reveal some of the underlying difficulties within certain facilities, I think it could lead to a modification in the overall effectiveness of caretakers and the satisfaction of patients and family members. This study currently would cause great interest amongst other cities due to the sheer amount of people entering the elderly population in the next decade. We must figure out how to fix current social problems in health care for the next generation of elderly people to continue positively with such a large aging population. This study is a simple way to understand how one detail can have lasting effects on another. For example, studying the effects of how the level of care in relation to satisfaction will in turn show how facilities can be modified and improved due to a better understanding of a population and their needs as a whole.
