They are viewed as both a form of resilience and strength, but also as a means by which a client can be connected to a social network outside of the therapy room. In many instances, clients are actively trying to deal with their issues before they come to counselling and this is often ignored or overlooked by the therapist. Clients may try many forms of alternative therapies or access cultural resources which they are already familiar with. The positive impact on wellbeing and mental health using alternative therapies such as spirituality, mindfulness, exercise, diet, yoga, walking, music, etc. are all well documented.
They explained that staff rarely offered to give them a break, had to provide their own equipment from home, medication and incontinence pads. The respondents in Ali et al (2013) also expressed their grievances about the lack of support they receive when in hospital with their clients. Some carers found it emotionally draining caring for the needs of their client, and often resulted in stress, with little or no help from their family or staff. Backer et al (2009) report stresses the importance of supporting the carers and the need to show a positive regard for their role and knowledge of people with intellectual disability. The report, emphasises that carers knowledge is a vital source of information and that nurses need to listen to what they have to say in order to provide optimum care.
Reflection on the aspects they had learned also took place after each session. Findings of the study were successful. It showed that staff understood person centred care and practised it daily. They learned a new set of skills to apply this framework uniquely to
Empathy, the capacity to vicariously experience the ordeals of another person, is a fundamental part of what constitutes a moral person and is essential in having the capacity to understand and forgive others, which Harper Lee portrays through Atticus’s advice to his children, the children’s changing perception of Boo Radley, and Atticus’s forgiveness of people in Maycomb. Atticus Finch serves as a voice of morality and reason and a guiding hand in his children’s development, educating them on the importance of empathy. The clearest example of presents itself when Scout returns home disappointed by her teacher and upset from her first day at school. This prompts Atticus to offer her advice on how best to handle the situation, telling her, “‘If you can learn a simple trick, Scout, you’ll get along better with all kinds of folks. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view.
Characteristics of Effective Helper In 1952, Eysenck examined 24 uncontrolled studies that looked at the effectiveness of counseling and Psychotherapy and found that “roughly two-thirds of a group of neurotic patients will recover or improve to a marked extent within about two years of the onset of their illness, whether they are treated by means of psychotherapy or not [Italics added]”. Although found to have serious methodological flaws, Eysenck’s research did lead to debate concerning the effectiveness of counseling and resulted in hundreds of studies that came to some very different conclusions: It is a safe conclusion that as a general class of healing practices, psychotherapy is remarkably effective. In clinical trials, psychotherapy
Evaluate the usefulness of the model(s) at the treatment center. (Strengths and weaknesses of using the model (s in that setting). The therapeutic community model is very useful because it is a long term intensive approach, is holistic and good. The strengths of using this model in the treatment centre are, it allows accountability since at the Piparo Empowerment Centre when an individual/s of the centre confronts a member about an issue/their behavior, not only are they supposed to be polite in their approach but the individual being confronted is supposed to take the criticism respectfully and try to fix/change their issue/behvaiour. The TC (therapeutic community) model also allows everyone to work together to help each other.
It has also presented studies on the footprint of mindfulness and how mindfulness can facilitate self-acceptance, a key component of happiness. Considering this variety of ways in which mindfulness has been used to improve the well-being of study participants, this essay proposes that mindfulness could be used to cultivate happiness for everyone. However a worldwide intervention is not exactly realistic, instead two places mindfulness interventions could be introduced are schools and workplaces. Using the intervention model of the Black S & Fernando R study detailed previously given its results and the results of similar studies which they have cited, an intervention could be designed for schools. However to prevent this interfering with the curriculum and the possibly differing views of parents on its importance it could be piloted first as an extracurricular activity.
Anstey et al., (2016) study suggest clear and urgent need to design the educational interventions in the effort of improving the end of life care in nursing homes. These interventions need robust evaluation to include the impact on families, residents, and staff and include economic
The ward concentrated on treating elderly patients, a lot of whom were suffering from some form of mental ailment and seemed distressed and unsure of their surroundings. I witnessed first-hand what I feel is the reality of care of our growing population of elderly people if developments in neuroscience aren't made quickly. The work experience itself involved shadowing a Physiotherapist. I was surprised by the extent of the Neurological physiotherapy available to those suffering from disorders of the central nervous system and how this therapy can create new neuron pathways through repetitive exercises. I thought this was an excellent application of Neuroscience to help people regain mobility and their autonomy as much as possible.
Furthermore, in the study sufficient financial support, physical support, social support, empowerment, awareness about retirement and mental capacity building are related with better adjustment to retirement. Even though the retirees have contributed a lot in all affairs for the country, their issues have been discussed in a very lesser ways. For instance, it is rare to find research studies conducted on the living conditions and general situations of the elderly in general and the retirees in particular. Only few researches are available on the elderly people throughout such longer history of
