Optimal post-loss adjustment is posited to occur when the bereaved individual smoothly transitions or oscillate between LO and RO processes (Shah & Meeks, 2012; Stroebe & Schut, 1999). “The ones who best cope with death may be those who both embrace and avoid grief, at times feeling pain and at times finding ways not to” (Neimeyer, 2002, pg. 193). Oscillation can be achieved through a process of expressing grief by means of revisiting and retelling of the the story of the loss, holding conversations with the image of the loved one and to providing opportunity to structure future goals and restore contact with a new world (Neimeyer & Currier, 2009, pg. 355).

There are many debates on whether IBCT is more beneficial compared to TBCT and which therapy technique responds better or quicker. For instance, Baucom et al.
This alludes the reader to remember the conditions of how mentally ill humans were treated and how most people would have to resort to mental institutions. So even if the husband in hand made the illness worse by secluding her, he is not the monster. But there is still the problem with her seclusion as a whole and psychologically pushes her to have lack of meaning to life. This is where her imagination begins to wonder through the wallpaper and from a psychological standpoint does what is expected -- creates a reason to be in the world and try to subconsciously overcome the issue by creating a woman who needs help out of the
Housewives suffered mentally, but did not understand why they felt empty and discontent with their lives because they were taught to feel fulfilled as being a mother and wife. Housewives assumed if there was a problem, it must have to do with their marriage or family life and were given advice by psychiatrists on how to improve their marriage and role as a mother. The psychological impact connected with their harsh treatment from society and other factors, which negatively contributed to women’s mental health. Furthermore, according to Erchull “Anxiety disorders and depression are twice as likely to affect women compared to men. Women are more likely to develop PTSD compared to men.
Over half of my mother’s fellow pupils suffered injuries.” (page 55) Right after describing these terrible working conditions Chang begins to describe her mother’s education.

He simply says that passionate love should be allowed to mature before a couple decides to marry. By this, he means to let companionate love grow alongside the passionate love. Companionate love involves being much more intimate with one’s partner than does just sex. It is after all that initial passion fades that the relationship is truly tested. When passion fades, if companionate love does not take its place, then the relationship is destined to fail.

The controversial idea of females being sex offenders is represented by the proportion of women in jail or accused is most likely disproportionate to reality. In the United Kingdom for example, the Lucy Faithfull Foundation estimates that up to 64,000 women are sex offenders, yet fewer than 2 percent of the people on the sex offenders registry are women (Townsend & Syal, 2009). Female sex offenders are often ignored and under reported due to gender roles that portray men who were assaulted or who believe they were assaulted as weak. Additionally low female offender percentage is due to police and other professionals not treating male rape victims as a serious concern. In addition, media portrayals of sexual assault and rape create an everyday

Consequently due to the mechanical failure, the sling that lifted her from her bed to the chair snapped sending her crashing to the floor. She died three months later because of these injuries. The National Ombudsmen Reporting System (NORS) uses a reporting tool to measure abuse and neglect in nursing home facilities. “The Old Americans Act in section 712 requires state long-term care ombudsmen to identify, investigate, and resolve complaints made by or on behalf of residents, and to ensure that residents have regular and timely access to ombudsman services”(Bloeman, Rosen, Clark, Nash, Mielenz, 2015,p.3).
