… ¶ … African-American Women Who Have Lost a Male Son to Suicide

A Re-Examination of cultural factors that mitigate risk and promote resilience in relation to African-American suicide: A review of the literature and recommendations for future research

Accoding to Utsey, Hook & Stanard (2007), there was the discussion of the history of African-American Suicides. Their reports about suicide of African-Americans brought out the confirmation of the acknowledgement of the Surgeon General in the U.S. As a grown crisis.

African-American Woman Living With AIDS Term Paper

… African-American Women Living With AIDS

The year 1981 marked many historic events in the world but none as tragic as the discovery of 'Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS). AIDS was first recognized as a disease when clinics in the larger cities in the United States such as New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco first saw young men who were homosexuals with Pnemocystis carinii pneumonia and Kaposi's sarcoma which was quite unusual for young adults who were not know to be immunosuppressed. The first report appeared in June 1981. This disease was first believed to be a homosexually transmitted disease but soon it was recognized that this disease was being transmitted among drug users as well. It wasn't long however, until it was understood that this…. [read more]

… Suicide Grief among African-American Mothers

THE COLOR OF STIGMA

This research will explore the experience of representative African-American mothers who lost their sons to suicide. The biopsychosocial contextual model of stress, as specifically applied to suicide as stressor, by Clark, Anderson, Clark and Williams (1999) will guide the following research questions:

Does perceived stigma due to suicide, as measured by the Suicide Stigmatization Scale (Fiegelman et al., 2011) significantly predict severity of grief, as measured by the Inventory of Complicated Grief (Prigerson et al., 1995), in African-American mothers who have lost a son to suicide, controlling for maternal socioeconomic status, age, relationship status, depression, and history of suicide in the family?

Does the coping style of John Henryism, as measured by the John Henryism Active…. [read more]


Grief Schiz Precautions and Procedures Essay

… As depression itself has become better understood, so have its effects -- such as the potential for suicidal thoughts and actions -- and its mechanisms, and thus more effective ways of handling depression at all ages and for a variety of causes have also been developed (Beck & Alford, 2009; Bhatia & Bhatia, 2007). As many schizophrenics are diagnosed in adolescence, a focus on research in handling depression and suicidal tendencies in the adolescent age group was employed, along with specific information regarding depression in schizophrenics (Beck & Alford, 2009; Bhatia & Bhatia, 2007; Wittman & Keshava, 2007). In this way, a comprehensive safety plan was established.

First and foremost, cognitive behavioral therapy is recommended for the treatment of depression in children and adolescents prior…. [read more]

Older African Immigrant Women Depression Thesis

… Baldwin-Clark et al. (2016) posits that the rates might be higher than we think considering that depression is commonly misdiagnosed due to its undetected symptoms.

As noted earlier most African migrants will not discuss depression or mental health issues. Neither will they report they are suffering from any of these conditions. Depression is considered to be taboo and this discourages the women from seeking health services for such conditions (Thomson, Chaze, George, & Guruge, 2015). While it would be easier to manage the symptoms and uncover the underlying causes, a failure to accept the condition means that one will suffer in silence. This aggravates the condition since the individual does not have the proper mechanism for dealing with the condition. Older immigrant women are…. [read more]


Old Immigrant Women Depression in Massachusetts Capstone

… The headings used are prevalence of depression, causes of depression, older African women with depression, access to mental health services, coping with depression for older African migrants, and stressors facing older immigrant African women Therefore, depression rates among older African migrants have not been sufficiently reported in the literature, which makes it difficult to gauge the prevalence rates. The review has highlighted the need to educate the women and give them the knowledge they need to better understand depression and how different it is from madness. Culturally appropriate services should also be included for the women. This will benefit the women as they will have a professional who understands their culture and one who is able to articulate the illness using terms that are culturally…. [read more]

Four, it might be a repetition of a past traumatic event in current lifetime. For example: a person might dream of a recent rape, a childhood assault or a wartime battle. This type of nightmare is so deeply etched in the psyche that it can require heavy use of behavioral dream-work techniques to modify the content and emotional intensity.



A fifth factor could be that the dream is a depiction of a past or probable life. For example: a client might dream the last events prior to a violent…. [read more]

… Parenting Program for Women and Children in Residential Treatment



Addiction is something that has been around for many years, and there have been increasingly new ways of treating it that have been created over the course of much research and study. There are many different forms that addiction takes, and there are many different drugs and substances that someone can become addicted to, even if they are not of the age that most people would think of when they picture people that would start down that particular road. Most individuals think of addicts as primarily young, minority men in their 20s and 30s that rob, steal, and cause other problems in order to get their drugs or alcohol. However, there are also….
