Military Children Research Paper

… Using a systems approach, it is apparent that parents need to participate more in social activities and make social connections for the health of their families, whether or not they are in the military. This is because social connections are integral for resilience. Developing a strong social support network is not something that comes naturally for all parents, which is why some need to work harder than others on this key trait. Likewise, there is a need for the development of traits leading to effective parenting styles.

Parenting styles vary, but parents who develop strong social skills are likely to empower and support their children. Parenting style is important for both civilian and military families, as there are some parenting styles that are more effective…. [read more]

… To understand the role of cultural and how it may affect the design and implementation of these measures.

The following will address the specific needs of each group victims.


The group of primary targets for the program will include first responders and plant workers who are at the greatest danger of illness from radiation exposure. Those that are closest to the accident are also the most likely to develop posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as result of this exposure (Pietrantoni & Prati, 2008). The focus of the CISM for these workers will be preparing them for the possibility of stress from an emergency at the Surry plant. The focus will be first on prevention, then relief of acute symptoms, followed by measures to help alleviate…. [read more]

RAD Reactive Attachment Disorder Introduction / Argument Thesis


Reactive Attachment Disorder

Introduction / Argument

There are many pertinent questions in the minds of researchers looking into the causes of Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD). These questions will be addressed in this paper as forthrightly as possible. For example, is RAD caused for the most part by "grossly pathological child care" as the National Library of Medicine (NLM) asserts? What are the other explanations for the cause of RAD that rebut NLM? And moreover, a) is RAD identified more closely with internationally adopted children or with nationally adopted children? And b) why are there so many different explanations for RAD and such a plethora of alleged solutions? Does anyone really understand RAD or know how to deal with it? Why are so many supposed….

Childhood Depression Major Depressive Disorder Term Paper

… Many times, even physicians do not obtain information regarding a child's condition and history from the child, but rather the physician will have parents recount the information to them; this lack of personal interaction with the child may contribute to the inability to detect symptoms. It is important for all involved adults to be aware of the child's mental state. Based on age, there are several key symptoms or manifestations of major depressive disorder that should serve as warning signs if observed:

Age 0-3: Feeding problems, temper tantrums, lack of playfulness, muted emotional expression

Age 3-5: Phobias, enuresis, encopresis, being accident-prone, being overly apologetic for minor infractions

Age 6-8: Vague somatic complaints (such as chronic abdominal pain and headaches), aggressive behavior, resistance to new experiences…. [read more]

Psychological First Aid in CISM Thesis

… No one should ever get less than 4 hours of sleep in 24 hours. If possible, standard eight hour shifts will be preferred over extended hours. Non-essential personnel should be disengaged from the scene as soon as possible. If someone begins to show signs of stress, they should be moved to a less stressful duty. The final suggestion by Mitchell is that CISM activity should be as unobtrusive as possible.

Dysfunctional Behavior That Strikes Term Paper

… She was earlier admitted to the College of Costa Mesa Hospital for stabilization of mental illness, medical management and relapse prevention, but she said that she was not coping and that she continued to be severely depressed and lack energy. So she was discharged from the Costa Mesa Hospital and, consequently, admitted to this College Hospital of Cerritos. The patient was anxious, mildly confused, disheveled and crying when her history was taken from her verbal and voluntary report and account.

Social Construction Relate Critical Incident Essay

… This is not to discount the importance of trained CISM personnel. Ideally, trained personnel should handle the most complex and serious aspects of crisis management, particularly during the highest-risk phases of the crisis. Training of non-emergency personnel should still be conducted by professionals. But just like taking a self-defense class does not replace the need for having a police force but can be helpful for average citizens; training non-emergency personnel in CISM can still be highly beneficial.

Q3. Why is it important to distinguish between CISM and psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is designed to deal with the deep, long-standing psychological issues of a particular client. It tends not to be goal-directed and is more intended upon supporting a client as he or she 'works through' various life…. [read more]

Attention Deficit Disorder Term Paper

… (APA, 1994)"

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), following an accurate diagnosis, specific goals for treatment should be established (Seay, 2002). These goals, or target outcomes, may include improvements in relationships with parents, siblings, teachers, and peers; decreased disruptive behaviors and improved academic performance. The AAP recommends setting three to six goals and stresses that they should be "realistic, attainable, and measurable."

Goals should be reviewed and progress continually during treatment (Seay, 2002). Lack of improvement should result in a change in treatment plan, a reconsideration of goals, or in some instances, the possibility of a change in diagnosis.

The AAP stresses that "primary care clinicians cannot work alone in the treatment of school-aged children with ADHD (Seay, 2002)." Rather than relying solely…. [read more]

ASD Case Kyle Term Paper

… Relationships between couples are fairly formal in this sense and extramarital affairs by the males are often accepted. As a male dominated culture Greeks tend not to be very tolerant of issues like homosexuality, or male weakness, but they are open to cross-cultural marriages (except for people of Turkish descent because many centuries ago the Turks destroyed the Greek Empire; Cashwell, Looby, & Housley, 1997).

The male "macho" attitude that Greek Americans adhere to can offer explanatory information regarding Kyle's reaction to his feelings as well as present a barrier to having him open up in therapy. A male therapist would most likely have greater success with Kyle, but a good female therapist can establish rapport by emphasizing how brave he was in Iraq, etc.…. [read more]

Diversity in a Police Force Police Departments Research Proposal

… ¶ … Diversity in a Police Force

Police departments in the 21st century enjoy a level of technology that would make Dick Tracy envious, but they are also faced with several challenges that have made their jobs more difficult than ever. Following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the nation's law enforcement community has been tasked with a number of responsibilities that further exacerbate the difficulty of their jobs, and immigration, the flow of illegal drugs and violent crime continue to plague the nation today. In this environment, identifying more effective approaches to the provision of policing represents a timely and important enterprise and represents the focus of this study. A growing body of evidence suggests that in an increasingly multicultural society, a police…. [read more]

Bipolar Psychiatric Disorder (Bd) Research Paper

… In comparison to the other 83 individuals that were part of the study, the research showed that the 29 with criminal pasts: a) had "more" antisocial personality disorder (ASPD); b) had less education; c) were more likely to have substance abuse problems; c) had attempted suicide more than the 83 without criminal pasts; and d) were more likely to experience recurrent "mania" (Swann, 173).

The convictions for non-violent crimes committed by bipolar individuals included "…fraud, drug possession or selling, burglary or crimes against property" (Swann, 176). The violent crimes committed by bipolar individuals included "assault and robbery" (Swann, 176). And while the hypothesis (bipolar individuals who exhibit criminal behavior can be linked to substance abuse, personality disorders and other problems related to impulsivity) was partially….

Psychophysiological Disorder Chapter 14, p.485; Webpage:

Psychophysiological disorders are conditions where the emotional or psychological state of the patient can cause or make worse physical symptoms or disease. Unlike hypochondria, a psychological disorder whereas the patient perceives illness, pain, or symptoms that do not actually exist, psychophysiological disorders produce physical harm to the body. Psychophysiological disorders are also called psychosomatic disorders. Physical symptoms can show throughout the body including skin irritations, digestive problems, or hallucinations. Physical symptoms affected by emotional stress can include nausea, tension headaches, ulcers, asthma, chest pain, or anorexia. Psychosomatic illnesses can be very serious and…. [read more]

Anxiety Treating Anxiety Through Talk Term Paper

… The usefulness of ACT is that it imparts skills so that the individual can accept experiences and commit himself or herself to behavioral changes.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is another form of talk therapy that combines Eastern medicine with group therapy so that an individual can learn to tolerate various situations provoking distress. Another way in which to help an individual, perhaps the simplest way is through interpersonal therapy, which devotes one week for a times of three to four months to simply speaking about the potential causes of anxiety of depression. Lastly, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy helps an individual see disturbing materials in a less distressing way, and has been utilized for PTSD, as well as some phobias (ADAA, 1).

The issue of abortion is a hotly debated topic in many social, political and religious circles. The issue is complicated and controverter as it is in some people's eyes, a right to choose and in other's eyes an intentional death of human life.

False Memories Petition the Problem Essay

… (Caselaw, 2011) Then King began having unexplained fainting spells. The psychiatrists diagnosed this as a psychosomatic illness, or "conversion disorder." Miss King had a "flashback" of being raped by her father in the bathroom. (Caselaw, 2011)

The injustice caused by the arrest in 2005 Mr. King refused the state's offer of a plea deal. He immediately found several additional charges levied against him, all based on the same alleged event. In this case the jury stated that "The scientific aura surrounding repressed memory theory and an expert who would testify about it might become so firmly established in the minds of potential jurors that they may assign undue credibility to repressed memory evidence." (Caselaw, 2011) Thus all these types of evidence are barred from courtrooms…. [read more]

Guided Imagery and Pain Management

Everyone experiences pain at some point. From the patient in the most dire circumstances in urgent care to the little kid with a sprained ankle. Pain is universal. Yet, it continues to plague individuals all over the world.

Pain Management and the post-surgery healing processes are a difficult area to study based on the personal nature of how each individual patient deals with and visualizes their own pain and recovery. Still, nursing researchers and practitioners are constantly looking for methods to improve or augment current pain management practices within contemporary nursing practice. In more contemporary pain management strategies, there is often a tendency to over rely on pharmaceutical medications. Pain is experienced by patients of…. [read more]

Exist Between Alcoholism Term Paper

… g., Merikangas & Gelernter, 1990). A large-scale twin study of women suggests that the substantial co-morbidity between major depression and alcoholism is also a result of genetic factors that contribute to both disorders (Kendler, Heath, Neale, Kessler, & Eaves, 1993).

Aside from showing a shared variance between depression and alcoholism, studies also have shown a possible causal link in the relation between the two to account for part of that variance....Overall, then, findings show that alcohol abuse and dependence on alcohol can be major predisposing factors to depression.

Tomer (2001), on the other hand, suggests that while alcoholism is certainly not rational (i.e. goes against the best interests of the actor in many cases) this does not mean that it is not learned behavior.

Parental Alienation Syndrome a Family Systems Perspective Research Proposal

… Parental Alienation Syndrome -- a Family Systems (systemic) Perspective

Parental alienation is stated to be a term that has been coined for the purpose of describing "a phenomenon that occurs when a child becomes allied with one parent and disparages or rejects the other." (Appell, nd) This is generally known to occur in "cases of high conflict divorce." (Appell, nd) Gardner (1989, 1999, 2000) coined the term 'parental alienation syndrome" or PAS due to a common cluster of symptoms in such families and the child suffering from PAS may exhibit the following behaviors either in full or in part: (1) the child is aligned with the alienating parents in a campaign of denigration against the target parent, with the child making active contributions; (2) rationalization….

Program Evaluation of a Proposed Violence Prevention Case Study

High school seniors are more likely to take weapons to school than to take calculus in school. - President George Bush, 1997

Targeted promotion and prevention issues.

Students who enroll in biology quickly realize that the world is not a sterile place, but no classroom is required at all to introduce them to the high incidence of violence in the nation's schools today. Indeed, many students encounter violence at home, in their schools, as well as in their places of recreation, and some become victims of such abusive behaviors early on in their lives. These episodes of violence may well affect many of these young people for the rest of their lives in adverse ways,…. [read more]

Virginia Woolf's "A Room Thesis

… Thus, even the oldest social habits and events, such as sports and attitudes that promote over-powering another force, do not go unnoticed by Woolf. Indeed, it seems that the more commonplace an action is in society, the more scrutiny it is given by Woolf as a possible threat to her thriving. The "illusion" of a peaceful world, pre-war, is thus shattered by a grateful Woolf, who it seems would try to mentally and emotionally strengthen herself to better cope with a war-torn, patriarchal world.

Armed with anger, intelligence, and compassion, Woolf takes a historical stance and informs her reading public that:

Intellectual freedom depends upon material things. Poetry depends upon intellectual freedom. And women have always been poor, not for two hundred years merely, but…. [read more]

Metropolitan Government and Politics Term Paper

… Legalizing Prostitution in New York City

Historically, one of the criminal problems that has proven most pervasive and difficult to eradicate in New York City is prostitution. Prostitution has a long history in the city, and was legal for much of the city's history. In fact, until prostitution seemed to be interfering with New York City's development as a major metropolitan area and tourist destination, the city seemed disinclined to do anything to regulate prostitution. By the late 1800s, much of New York, particularly the area around Times Square, was gaining notoriety for its sex workers. "In 1880 it was estimated that a dozen brothels each lined West 39th and 49th streets alone.On weekend nights young men lined up outside brownstones in the district while…. [read more]

Aum Shinrikyo in 1995 Research Paper

… The media was also to blame for some of the problem. Reporters crowded around the entrances and openings to the subway, close enough to find out what was happening, but not close enough to be exposed to whatever might be taking place in the subway itself. Not only were these reporters mostly in the way when it came to the first responders attempting to do their jobs, but these reporters were also so interested in the reporting that they were reluctant to take sick and injured people to the hospital when asked (Ogawa, Yamamura, & Ando, et al., 2000; Reader, 2000). In the days after the incident took place, there were many reports of how the media, the subway system, and the government failed the…. [read more]

Domestic Violence: A Bleak Reality Research Paper

… Domestic Violence:

A bleak reality in the modern United Kingdom

The crime statistics from the British Crime Survey (BCS) of 2008/2009, which is based upon the public's answers to questions about crime, reveal some promising data with regard to violence in the United Kingdom. Specifically, based on the 2008/09 BCS, violent crime remained stable in the United Kingdom relative to the data collected from the previous year. Another important gauge of crime data is based upon the police recorded crime index which provides even more promising data concluding that total violence against the person decreased by 6% (Crime in England and Wales, 2009). Given that violent crime has either remained constant or decreased depending upon which means of recording data is reviewed, it would seem…. [read more]

Providing healthcare services and benefits to veterans of American armed forces began as far back as 1636, according to the New York University Internal Medicine Blog written by Dr. Erin E. Ducharme (2008). In fact in 1636 during the regional war between the Plymouth Pilgrims and the Pequot Indians, a law was passed by the Pilgrims that stated: "If any man shall be sent forth as a soldier and shall return maimed, he shall be maintained competently by the colony during his life (Ducharme). In 1776 -- during the Revolutionary War -- the Continental Congress (CC) wanted to encourage enlistments and cut back on desertions, so the CC authorized the payment of "half pay…. [read more]

… Psychological Sequelae of Childhood Sexual Abuse

The fact of childhood sexual abuse has become a central area of concern in countries throughout the world and has been described by experts as a "...major public health problem affecting thousands of children and adolescents in the United States each year" (Johnson, 2008). The trauma of childhood abuse of this nature is in itself horrific and innately damaging to the individual.

This refers especially to the mental and psychological results and consequences of the trauma…. [read more]
