Family Planning - Personal Choices
Family Planning: Personal Choices
In her essay, "Freeing Choices," Nancy Mairs discusses the personal choices in family planning, which significant advances in the field of medical technology and genetics are now likely to make possible. Prior to the advent of ultrasounds and amniocentesis, it was not possible for would-be-parents to learn the sex of their unborn child. Indeed, other than practicing family planning to prevent the creation of new life, families had little choice but to accept the new born, irrespective of the sex or their hopes for a son or daughter. Today, however, it is possible to use "amniocentesis to determine the sex of a fetus, followed by abortion if the parents don't want the sort they've begun." (Mairs, p. 435) Thus, modern technology and knowledge have now made a greater degree of personal choice possible in family planning. It is this central fact…… [Read More]

The increase in the amount of people in poverty is very concerning. Many people are concerned about how to raise the standard of living of these people and keep it there in a sustainable manner rather than having to continue to throw more donated and government money at the problem. At the end of the day, the big issues would seem to be family planning. While it is dangerous territory to try and dictate who should have children and who should not. Of course, this would involve a predefined set of standards, there is a lot of credence to the idea of figuring out what can be afforded and what should be avoided. While it may be an uncomfortable subject to broach, the current trajectories that are seen even in the United States are not remotely good and they need to change.

The author of this report has been asked to address health promotion, disease prevention and general wellness of a particular form. The chosen intervention is education of the affected patients. The given malady that will be prevented will be obesity. The level of prevention will be primary prevention. Finally, the target population of the intervention will be pregnant women. While a good amount of weight gain is expected and normal when it comes to a pregnancy, the gains need to be commensurate with the size of the woman having the baby and the size of the fetus at any given time.
ight off the top, there should be a statement of why the author of this report is so engrossed and focused on weight management for pregnant women. It is very important that pregnant women, no matter how risk the pregnancy otherwise is, are at a good weight before,…… [Read More]
Families, Delinquency & Crime
The fundamental changes occurring to families in the 2st century can be classified into two different categories, depending on the internal or the external perspective that is used in the analysis. The external perspective proposes an analysis of the sociodemographic changes that have occurred to families under the impact of the external factors of the 2st century. The sociodemographic changes are characterized both by the numbers, by a quantitative reflection of families, and by the relationships that are formed within each family.
From the first perspective, the 2st century has imposed both changes in the number of families (some cultures, notably the Western ones, have encountered decreases in size because of an increased reluctance of individuals to get married) and in the formation of these family groups. As such, in many of these family groups, the norm has translated from a man-woman marriage as the basis…… [Read More]
It also varies with urban or rural residence. Urban households commonly earn more and enjoy a higher standard of living than rural households. The allocation for food spending corresponds to the biggest part of the family budget. However, as family income increases, the share in food in consumption expenses generally drops. This is most likely because of the popularity of "fast foods" nowadays.
The process of socialization takes a lifetime whereby the individual acquires the established beliefs, values, sentiments, norms and behavior of his group and society. It is through socialization that the individual becomes a functioning member of his group. It is also through this process that values, customs and beliefs are passed on from one generation to the other.
Because of the significance of early experiences and primary relationships, the family remains to be the most important socializing agent in the child's life (Davidson and Moore,…… [Read More]
As one commentator notes; "What this adds up to is, in my view, a significant shift in the balance of work and family life. oles are changing, the nature of care is changing, and the stress related to juggling the balance is increasing (Edgar, 1997, p. 149)
A number of statistics also help to outline the nature of the family structure in a developed economy like Australia. In terms of workforce participation, the figures are as follows: "….86% for fathers and 56% for mothers in two-parent families, and 65% for male and 43% for female sole parents"(Edgar, 1997, p.151). This is also indicative of a shift in the role of the female as solely a homemaker. "In 1993, 53% of couples with dependent children were both employed & #8230;" (Edgar, 1997, p. 151). Therefore, there are still imbalances and disparities in terms of the family structure and this is a…… [Read More]
The Code also allows for one accessory building, a storage shed, fences, walls, and landscape screens. These screens are not to exceed seven feet in height. They should also be adjacent to the rear and side property lines. At the front, they should not exceed three feet in height. Private swimming pools are also subject to Code specifications.
The Code is aimed at the comfort and well-being of residents, in terms of which domestic animals are also taken into account. The Code does not require specific provisions for domestic animals such as dogs or cats, apart from the fact that they are required to remain inside the fenced area of their residence. If livestock were to be held on a property, the provision is one animal per ten thousand squire feet of the lot area. If these animals are held on a property, they are required to be in a…… [Read More]
A few of the most notable projects would include: the Clinton Commons Development and Armory Square projects. This would cause the overall amounts of available offices to increase. The construction costs will vary between: $85.00 to as high as $200.00 per square foot. ("Syracuse Average Costs," 2007) While, the financing of purchasing any kind of properties is more difficult. This is because of the tight credit conditions that many financial institutions are facing. When you analyze the different properties, it is clear that the Jefferson Center is facing the greatest challenges. As the market is struggling with an oversupply of office space and declining rents. The other properties located in Liverpool and Dewitt, are situated in markets where the levels of rent are increasing and the available supply is decreasing. This shows, how a divergence is occurring, between the properties that are located in Downtown Syracuse and the suburbs. Where,…… [Read More]
Expressive functioning is related to communication such as emotional, verbal, and nonverbal communication, problem solving and roles within the family. Beliefs within the family are also a part of expressive functioning.
For the purpose of the Calgary Family Assessment Model, a family is defined as who they say they are. It is very important that the clinician performing the assessment not assign their own beliefs upon what he or she believes a family is, and take into account what the patient feels about family as to the patient is may mean not only the people who actually live within the household but can also address past, present and future emotional attachments.
Calgary Family Intervention Model:
The immediate family is composed of Mr. Herbert Schelley (the patient), Mrs. Annette Schelley (his wife), and their son Thomas Schelley. The extended family consists of the Schelley's two married daughters, their husbands and their…… [Read More]
Family preservation services have been defined as short-term, family-focused services designed to assist families in crisis by improving parenting and family functioning while keeping children safe (Services, N.d.). While it has typically been the case that many social service departments would rely on the foster care system for child safety issues, family preservation services became a popular alternative when it was recognition to be more beneficial for the children who need a safe and stable family environment. It has been realized that separating children from their families, such as is the case when they would enter foster care, can be traumatic for them and leave them with negative consequences that can last indefinitely. Therefore, instead of looking at the child as a sole individual, the family preservation perspective broadens the scope of the welfare to include the entire family unit.
The model for the services is founded on the belief…… [Read More]
Planning Efforts to educe Future Disaster Impacts
This paper looks at options for programs to be put in place before to a disaster to avoid major and often poorly-managed expenditures after a catastrophe and to offer suitable protection against the risk of those large losses which do occur. It is important for the government to provide programs that enlightens the citizens on how to deal with the hazards that come with hurricanes. Natural hazards have taken place in America and they have not been well attended to. The response in the Haiti earthquake showed some weakness in response. Hurricane Katrina should have given Americans a lesson on how to prevent major destructions in case of a similar scenario.
Katrina was a hurricane that hit the Atlantic in 2005 and was known to be the most dangerous hurricane in history of America. Over 1,836 people died as a result of…… [Read More]
Age Students With Learning Disabilities
The impact of family motivation on college age students with learning disabilities may be a deciding factor in regard to the student's success or failure. College age students with learning disabilities obviously have more immediate needs in cooperative learning settings when compared to typical students. Educators cannot just tell the student to just sit-down and read five chapters of Freud. These students have problems like dyslexia, AD/HD, or English as a second language to name a few and they may have had additional help in the past that may not be available at an older age. When there are obvious underlying issues, the family, teachers and the students themselves have to work more closely together in order to reach the desired positive outcomes. "Teaching effectiveness is inferred from the product that was created; it is the product that is the indicator of scholarship." (Cranton,…… [Read More]
...in the end 'the addict has to want to change' and if the addict does not want to change it does not matter what program..." that the addict is in.

Planning Your Project
The nature of the problem is that in the clinical setting there are a large number of issues, such as falls, pressure ulcers, and these lead to lower levels of customer satisfaction and negative patient outcomes. There are ways to improve both customer service and to help the patients. So this is the problem that needs to be tackled.
The setting is in a clinic, where patients are in rooms, and there is sometimes a relatively minimal level of nursing supervision. The patients are sometimes able to move freely around their rooms, and this creates the conditions where the patient might fall or otherwise injure themselves, and there is no way for anybody to know that this has happened. The clinic needs to institute evidence-based practice in order to improve the patient outcomes and the service levels that the nurses are providing.
The impact of the problem…… [Read More]
Family Affluence and Morality
Famine, Affluence, Morality by Peter Singer
Peter Singer's article has been reviewed with the intention of understanding his basic ideas about poverty and hunger alleviation. Simultaneously the many criticisms associated with his arguments have also been highlighted with a view to rebutting them and proving the feasibility of Singer's noble ideas.
"Famine, Affluence, Morality" is a famous dissertation scripted by Peter Singer in 1971. It aims to modify the standard estern culture by urging people to perform acts of charity. It articulates that more affluent individuals are morally and ethically obligated to donate as much as they can to the people who need resources the most. It is as such, an essay that is considered a humanitarian doctrine of sorts which authentically argues over the reasons as to why one ought to give more. It is based on the less than favorable conditions of Bangladesh's ar…… [Read More]
One of the most popular televisions shows currently is "19 Kids and Counting" featuring the ever-growing Duggar family. The hit series on The Learning Channel, is hosted by the Duggar parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, as well as the family's 19 children (nine girls and 10 boys) and various celebrity visitors and other multi-member families who help keep the show fresh and interesting. Clearly, any family with 21 members will involve a complex social system that provides a useful framework in which to examine various theories and concepts related to social units. To this end, this paper provides a review of the relevant literature to examine the social system of the Duggar family from three theoretical and five conceptual perspectives, a definition and discussion concerning these theories and concepts and how the social unit demonstrates these, followed by a description and illustration of the various ways in…… [Read More]
High-isk Family Health Promotion: Teen Pregnancy
Teen pregnancy is a problem in the United States which has enormous consequences for both the individuals who are immediately concerned with the pregnancy and the public at large. The role of family nursing in assisting young mothers cannot be understated, but prevention and education are the primary goals of family nursing. Nurses must realize the adverse consequences that can occur when a teen becomes pregnant, understand how to advocate for the teen and have the personal skills to positively affect the patient.
The United States continues to have an epidemic of teen pregnancies. The United States leads the world in all categories of teen pregnancy. In 2006 more than 750,000 women below the age of 2o became pregnant (Gutmacher Instittute, 2010, 2). This is actually a low number as the birth rate per 1,000 representative women was only 71.5. However, this…… [Read More]

What is the chance that Melissa will develop HD and what could she expect if she did develop the disease?
Huntington's Disease is caused by a dominant mutation in a gene, meaning that if one or both of the gene that carries this mutation has the Huntington's mutation, the disease will manifest physically (NIH 2011). In other words, if one of a person's two biological parents had or has Huntington's Disease, there is at minimum a fifty percent chance of an offspring inheriting the disease, and inheritance will lead to expression if given enough time (May Clinic 2011). Because Melissa does not have access to any pertinent information other than that her mother had the disease, calculating her potential for developing the disease becomes much more complex, as all alternatives must be considered. The Punnet squares below help to illustrate this:

We are essentially powerless to prevent all dysfunctions - but, the mental health and social support structures within communities have the responsibility to do as much as they possibly can to promote healthy family life for all. This support often involves early identification of dysfunctional families, counseling, disruption of negative patterns. The schools, churches, hospitals and any other institution both public and private have a responsibility to reach out and try to help those who are suffering - and often that suffering must be alleviated at the source, the dysfunctional family.

family is very close knit, and we have a lot of relatives in the area, so when the holidays roll around, there are always big family gatherings that include dozens of people. That can be a little intimidating if you're not part of the family, or you're little and haven't experienced this kind of big family gathering. I remember when I was little, all the grown ups laughing and carrying on scared me, but I've gotten used to it, and I enjoy these gatherings now.
We are panning one of these big parties for Memorial Day, and the entire family gets in on the planning, too. Everyone brings some special dish to the party for a giant potluck, and whoever's hosting provides the dishes, drinks, and such. My parents are hosting the Memorial Day party, and it's a big deal for us. Dad has been working in the yard to…… [Read More]
Stress Management centers (CISM: Everly & Mitchell, 1999) are integrated and comprehensive crisis intervention approaches to catastrophic critical events. CISM approaches consist of a continuum of services from pre-crisis preparedness to post-crisis-intervention procedures that can deal with the both the physical and psychological consequences of critical incidents. The care services during catastrophic events often include individual, group, and family interventions.
The use of the traditional model of a Family Assistance Center (FAC) is an example of macro-level CISM service planning and delivery service center. FACs as used during the 911 catastrophe assisted families in times of the crisis. A FAC is a secure facility which was set up at a centralized location with the function of supplying information about missing persons who were possible victims of the disaster. During the 911 crisis FAC's functioned as gathering points where information was exchanged in order to either facilitate the body identification process…… [Read More]
What issues should be considered when a freezing order is issued against your client?
A freezing order, of course, is when the assets in question are frozen. This does not change the ownership of the asset but it does deprive the person from moving or harnessing the asset for as long as it's frozen. A frozen bank account is a specific example of this but it can apply to life insurance or any other retirement asset. The courts can issue a freeze order as can certain high-level politicians like the President if there are foreign business or people involved. A freezing order does not mean that the assets have been or will be confiscated but it could end up being that way depending on what is going on.
As for how to react to a freezing order, the first order of business is to figure out why the assets…… [Read More]
planning can be described as the process through which a person or family organizes to reassign assets in expectation of death. This process is geared towards safeguarding the maximum amount of wealth possible for the identified beneficiaries and elasticity for the person before death. During the process of developing an estate plan, one of the main concerns for drafters of the plan is state and federal tax legislations. In addition to considering federal and state law, the process of drafting an estate plan includes several people such as the family, other relevant individuals, and selected charitable organizations ("Do I Need Estate Planning?" par, 1). Furthermore, estate planning process involves the individual's property or assets and their varying ownership forms and titles. Actually, some of the most common tools used in the process of estate planning include trusts, wills, power of attorney, and estates.

The death of elderly individuals takes place in different circumstances and settings such as painless death at home or painful death in a healthcare facility. Social workers have an important role in planning end-of-life care as part of providing essential social support to elderly individuals. The role of social workers in this process is attributable to the significance of their professional practice in a multidisciplinary palliative care team in hospice and hospital settings (Watts, 2013). Since the death of elderly individuals occurs in a variety of conditions and settings, social workers need to plan for end-of-life care. The planning and delivery of end-of-life care helps in helping the elderly cope with serious illness, face mortality or manage the process of dying in an effective manner.
One of the major functions of social workers in their role in planning for end-of-life care is providing psychosocial and practical support to individuals who…… [Read More]
It seems strange to me, in retrospect, that I could have managed to reach the age of sixteen without having ever visited an amusement park. Of course, I was aware of places like the Epcot Center and Disneyland -- what American child isn't? But I grew up in a city that didn't have any local amusement parks, and my family didn't have a lot of extra money to spend on vacations. Instead, my parents saved up to send me to boarding school in Massachusetts. Living away from my parents and siblings was at times stressful, and required me to develop a great deal of independence. However, the road trip that we took to Bush Gardens in Virginia remains one of my fondest memories and marks a strong transition point between my adolescence and young adulthood.
When I returned home from school for the summer after my junior year,…… [Read More]

Contemporary Approaches Used for Assessment and Diagnosis
The Center for Quality Assessment and Improvement in Mental Health relates screening tools used for screening for bipolar disorder to include the 'Mood Disorder Questionnaire' (MDQ); the 'Composite International Diagnostic Interview (CIDI) ipolar Disorder Screening Scale'; Differential Diagnosis of ipolar Disorder I & II vs. Major Depressive Disorders; and Obtaining a Family History Through the Use of a Genogram. The MDQ is designed for use as a tool to aid in screening for present and past incidences of mania and hypomania and includes 13 questions related to the symptoms of bipolar disorder in addition to items that assess the clustering of symptoms as well as any functional impairment. (CQAIMH, 2014, paraphrased) The Composite International Diagnostic Interview (CIDI) ipolar Disorder Screening Scale' can be used to make accurate identification of "both threshold and sub-threshold bipolar disorder."

Pediatric Nurse Practitioner in the Care of Terminally Ill Children
Pediatric nurse practitioners provide a valuable contribution to the care of chronically and terminally ill children. This position is essentially a subtype of advanced practice nurse, whose function is to provide the best possible patient care for ill children. This position functions within a pediatric hospital setting, in which the goal is to provide cost-effective patient care that meets and exceeds the needs of patients and their families. Although the pediatric nurse practitioner may work with children that present with acute or chronic illnesses, there is a critical need for nursing practitioners that are motivated to work with terminally ill children. Terminally ill children and their families present unique needs and situations that require knowledge, expertise, and intervention skills beyond what conventional nurses can offer. This population requires specialized care that can be fulfilled by a trained pediatric nurse practitioner.…… [Read More]

planning is equivalent to explaining the importance of time management. Stack (2000) argues that every minute spent in planning translates into 10 additional minutes for execution that are gained. 10 minutes a planning will translate into 100 additional minutes, which is 1 hour and 40 minutes.
I always find how important planning is at work. I always start my day with a shortlist of the most important things that I need to get done through the day. This shortlist helps me prioritize as well, because only the essential things will go on the list. y the end of the day, completing the list means getting the most important things done, a good feeling about a day at work.

A neighborhood watch program can be set up with some effort and participation through willing neighbors in your community to prevent and discourage crime in the future. These committees have been successful for many years, and they are supported by local law enforcement and other town officials who focus him on crime prevention as a priority to better protect civilians and their homes and businesses. By a communities working with a variety of certified individuals, including their local police and sheriff's department, the members of the community can enforce laws and discourage burglaries, mischievous activities, theft, and other crimes that can be prevented by coming together and creating a plan.

Jane lives a very difficult life when it comes to the everyday implications that she has to deal with. Taking care of one child at a young age is difficult enough; taking care of six by the age of 26, seems to be nearly impossible. It is not surprising to hear that having six children that range from eight months old to nine years old, can become something that not only takes a toll on the soul, but also takes a toll on the physique and health. No matter how someone may seem to someone else, as is the case with Jane and her husband, if Jane does not feel comfortable with herself, and she does not see herself as being productive in society, or even in her own life, it can turn into a downfall situation in something that needs to be resolved at its source.…… [Read More]
UK resilience website and the London preparedness website both offer informative guidelines on what risks and threats face the country/city and how people can prepare for them. For example, on the UK Resilience site, a document entitled "Preparing for emergencies" can be downloaded. It addresses the risks that one should plan for, how to prepare for emergencies, how to prepare one's business for emergencies, and how to prepare one's community for emergencies. It is a succinct and cohesive guide because it does not just address one's own self or home but also one's workplace and one's community, which gives a great deal of comfort to users of the site as they can feel that they are not only safeguarding their own families but their own neighborhoods as well, creating the impression that there is strength in unity, numbers and people working together.

The purpose of early childhood assessment is to document the present status of the child with regard to developmental milestones and to identify any developmental areas that require follow-up assessment or follow-along. Assessment of very young children needs to be integral to their daily activities. Children change very rapidly and it is too easy to assume that they have reached developmental milestones in all areas: marked development in one area can distract caregivers and therapists from a deficit or an area in which development is occurring at a slower rate than typical. ecording the developmental progress of children is not an onerous task if it is…… [Read More]

Crane (2007) further asserts her perspective that the lack of success has a lot to do with a lack of formalized structure and the tendency to hire within the family even when those hires are not a good fit.

Samuel Moore Walton was born March 29, 1918 in Kingfisher, Oklahoma and died April 5, 1992 in Little ock, Arkansas. From humble beginnings, he became a retail titan as the founder of Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. He graduated from the University of Missouri and entered the J.C. Penney training program before serving in the Army during World War II. He started a chain of five-and-dime variety stores in Arkansas right after returning from the Army, and opened his first Wal-Mart store in 1962. He pioneered many customer service functions that today are considered standard practice. Walton eschewed the typical discount-store chain practice of locating stores in or near large cities, preferring small towns where the competition was nonexistent.…… [Read More]
I'm going to look at the time line very carefully to make sure I have enough time for each task. I will allow several months to prepare for comprehensives, and at least three months to produce a proposal. I won't aim for the minimum standards for my department on that but do everything I can to make sure that I have every contingency covered. I will look at my data collection tasks to see if there are times when it might be particularly difficult to gather data, as it was for Millie during the summer.
Most of all, I am going to emulate Millie's confidence. It didn't occur to her that she couldn't do it. She ad a full time job, and a husband, and a daughter, and she was 42. She didn't see any of those as reasons she should not get her Ph.D. They were just facts of…… [Read More]
Family elation and Substance Use Disorders
Families have multiple reasons to exist. The key reason, however, is nurturing, and fulfilling the present as well as long-term wants and needs of all members. A secondary motive is contributing, as a participant and consumer, to the wider society (Peter 2015). This paper will explore important familial roles, cultural differences in family systems, and how family members can facilitate treatment of a teenage member diagnosed with substance/drug use disorder. Family interventions such as Functional Family Therapy, Brief Strategic Family Therapy, In Family Behavior Therapy, Multi-systemic Therapy and Multidimensional Family Therapy will also be discussed.

How can you ensure the involvement of family members into your plan for servicing your special education population?
The need for a collective effort is obvious when dealing with young children in special education enrollment in their respective schools or place of learning. Teachers need to ensure that parents stay involved in their' child's education, or that child becomes at serious risk at becoming "lost in the system" and permanently damaged due to this abuse and neglect. It is important that we treat those in our society who appear to have less with dignity and respect and contribute to their quality of life.
The family is where the child learns to act and behave in society and many of the initial traits and behaviors within the child's life is learned from the family source. This may be helpful or not helpful depending on the relationship and…… [Read More]
Wedding Market Planning
Developing a market plan and strategy for weddings is a challenging endeavor, primarily because it is a highly-differentiated industry that interestingly requires the planner to establish linkages to different kinds of industries. While it is highly specialized as a business, the business owner or planner must be savvy enough to know other businesses as well to remain competitive in the wedding planning business. Market planning and strategy in the wedding industry requires the individual to have an almost innate talent and skill for identifying the specifics and details required to plan and realize a wedding.

Life in a Family
In On Going Home, the things that represent family for Didion is where the family is, she writes that, by "home" she is not referring to the place in Los Angeles where her husband and child live but where her family is. In addition, dust defines a significant part of their family life. Surfaces in their house are covered in dust and even when her husband wrote the words 'D-U-S-T' all over them, and no one noticed. She fittingly described her home as, "difficult, oblique, deliberately inarticulate…" The reader can see the families' obliqueness in the themes that the writer chooses to speak about with her brother (Didion 2). They start to speak about the people they know have been committed to mental hospitals or have been booked on drunk-driving charges.
Through the portrayal that Didion about her family life, her conservative nature is evident, she…… [Read More]
Happy families have certain traits and attributes in common which make the relationship between their members stronger and more respectful for each other. The most important factors which make a happy family include love and care, effective communication, commitment, conflict resolution, and resilience. When family members show true care and respect for each other, resolve their family conflicts in a polite and friendly manner, show a high level of resilience in bitter circumstances, and ensure an effective communication without distance and time constraints, the members live like a happy and ideal family. Family happiness gets spoiled when hatred, mistrust, arguments, and criticism take the place of love, care, and mutual understanding.
A Happy Family
Before discussing what makes a happy family and what elements contribute towards making a strong relationship among all family members, it is important to explain how the word 'family' has been defined by the…… [Read More]
Nontraditional families in America have seen a remarkable increase in numbers over the past twenty years. The traditional family unit depicted in sitcoms on television and spoken about in the literature still dominates the social scene but in actual numbers it exists in only about twenty-five percent of the nation's households. Strangely, discussions regarding this magical unit still occupy the thoughts and arguments of politicians, preachers and conservative activists as they talk about the merits of "family values." Yet, what truly is the impact of the nontraditional family on today's society? How do children raised in such families fare in the social make-up such as school performance and their social interaction and, finally, why are the remaining prejudices against such families not logically justified?
The rapid increase in the number of nontraditional family is a social phenomenon. Such families, few in number, existed in near anonymity until the past twenty…… [Read More]

There are numerous themes that exist in Shakespeare's play "Much Ado About Nothing." One of the most prevalent is deception and the myriad effects it produces, both benign and malignant. The characterization of Borachio is highly important in underscoring the gravity of this particular theme. A careful analysis of the text indicates that Shakespeare utilizes Borachio to emphasize the notion that one of the best guises for an enemy is as a friend, which an examination of Borachio's relationship with Don Pedro, Claudio, and Don John proves.
As an intimate of Don John, who is Don Pedro's brother, Borachio is welcomed into the home and affairs of Leonato as a friend. However, this welcoming proves essential to the duplicitous behavior Borachio performs in helping to foment disturbance in the wedding plans afoot in the home, which include a marriage between Claudio and Hero. Yet Borachio uses…… [Read More]
Globalization in Terms of Family Studies and Psychology
Globalization: The ealities of Families
Globalization can be defined as the unfolding resolution of the contradiction between ever expanding capital and its national political and social formations. While the expansion of capital once represented that associated with national capital and later that associated with corporations expanding from the national to the transnational, it has now come to represent that which occurs without the assistance of or located in nations. These changes have been brought about by globalization which has led to the shift of the main location of capital accumulation from the national to the supranational or global level. With the emergence of globalization, economics has gained a more important place in the matters of humans than politics and public policy has become superseded by corporate demands. These matters as well as those that suggest that the best interests of the private…… [Read More]
They have grandparents who visit them during the holidays. However, for the most part family members deal with their problems as individuals, not as a family unit.
Information provided by the family is an important source of information about the family. However, one cannot ignore outside sources of information as well. For instance, the worker may contact the school, neighbors, or others who are involved with the family to examine factors that may influence the current situation. The assessment plan will involve contacting the school to find out about Conrad's performance in terms of grades, attendance and overall performance.
The case of the Jarretts is complex, with many individual goals that must be completed on the way to resolution of the systemic problems. In this case, the identified patient is Conrad, as he was the one who tried to commit suicide. The goal of family therapy is the…… [Read More]
isk Management in Family Owned Businesses
A family business can be simply described as "any business in which a majority of the ownership or control lies within a family, and in which two or more family members are directly involved" (Bowman-Upton, 1991). In other words, it is a multifaceted, twofold structure consisting of the family and the business meaning that the involved members are both the part of a job system and of a family system (Bowman-Upton, 1991).
Most families seek stability, intimacy, a sense of community, and belonging through the family business (Hess, 2006). On the other hand, whenever family and business are mentioned together, a majority of people think of continuous conflict, competition and contention (Crenshaw, 2005). However, "successful family businesses do not let the family destroy the business or the business destroy the family" (Hess, 2006).
The family-owned businesses are the backbone of the world financial system.…… [Read More]

isen Poverty in the Nation's Young Families
The rationale behind the study's purpose statement is focused on the number of families who are living in poverty today. Many of these families are young, and they are struggling to get by in a nation where it can be difficult to get out of debt and begin to move forward financially. When there are children in the mix and the parents do not have a lot of education, work experience, or life experience, things can become even more difficult. As such, being "poor" is more than just not having money or material things. It is a way of life, and often addresses a combination of finances, social interactions, support networks, health, experience, culture, and education (Philippou, 2010). Once people are born into poverty or fall into it through difficult times, getting out of it can be highly difficult, especially for young families…… [Read More]
Family in Health of Our Society
The Family System as a Tool to Promote Health
Family is vital to the health and well being of our society. Only recently have researchers and healthcare providers began realizing that families work as a system to help promote health among family members. Families are more a whole than the sum of individual parts (Friedman, Bowden & Jones, 2003). Thus what affects one family member will ultimately affect others. The health or behaviors of one family member may directly or indirectly affect the health and well being of other family members.
Because families are more widely recognized as systems that can create a healthy or unhealthy environment, nursing researchers are suggesting a more integrative and holistic approach to care that focuses on families as system. Integrative practice suggests that nurse practitioners consider families as systems and work with families in this regard to help…… [Read More]
.Additional batteries are also needed, however, not the rechargeable batteries or flashlight. To help full the numerous lists of "necessary" items to prepare for an emergency disaster the army/navy retailer is generally not the best place to purchase batters; bottled water; etc.. These stores do on the other hand provide emergency water filtration and purification products. They also market field food prep kits and portable cooking accessories. Other items readily available at these stores include: "Shelter -- military surplus blankets, cots, sleeping bags, tents, duffels, shovels... outerwear are very practical, well-made and inexpensive components of any home disaster preparation kit. Military-style inflatable lifeboats and vests are great for flood use." Gas masks, on the other hand, are not a particular item needed for emergency disaster planning and as Hawver contends, "best promoted as Halloween items rather than as effective for use in emergency situations." In the same sense, helmets, chemical…… [Read More]
Predicting the future is not easy, but using past and current trends is the right way to go. At least that will allow those who are making the decisions to be sure that they have considered everything in the best light possible before they choose which direction to take.
Planning and Change in Rapid Development
One of the main issues with change management and future planning for long-term care facilities right now is that the changes are taking place so rapidly. If the changes were slower, there would be more of a chance to adapt. Since that is not the case, more has to be addressed regarding how to change quickly. That is something that has not been required of these managers before, so they are in new territory to some extent. While that is not necessarily a bad thing, it does mean that more mistakes could be made because…… [Read More]
" Of these respondents, over 50% of them stated that they lack a disaster recovery plan (Anthes, 1998). However, most of the problems stem from the lack of communication at the corporate level. (Hawkins, et al., 2000).
Business Continuity Plans (BCP) and other forms of strategic planning are no longer a luxury, but a must-have factor and an important element of any organisation's risk management system. Organisations are increasingly dependent upon it systems and infrastructure and eventually subjected to many risks, so business is inherently risky. How long can your organisation afford system downtime? How long does it take to recover a disaster; and, what does it cost? These kinds of questions are the ones that have to be addressed for BCPs. Also important, however, is using strategic planning to look toward the future and determine where a business wants to be at a specific point, so that plans to…… [Read More]
" (2008, p. 146) Flegal, Ogden & Carroll stress the need to educate lowering the fat content of the diet through nursing intervention and practice. (2004, p. S147) These nursing interventions can like this work stress the implementation of a program that exposes adolescents to healthier alternatives and builds the efficacy for obtaining them through successfully seeking family behavior changes and building awareness about healthier options and food costing that make such options obtainable.
What interventions have been successful and what interventions have NOT been successful?
It is clear that general nutrition education, in the schools or in the community has not been an effective intervention tool for children in general, especially given what some would consider the deplorable condition of the public school nutrition programs in most states. It is also clear that family focused interventions are rare, but where they have been tried they have proven most successful…… [Read More]
When nurses put their patient(s) ahead of themselves, it assures that they address and solve any patient problems or concerns about post-hospitalization care (Han, 2009). Patients' health has a more significant chance of improving or remaining stable if they understand their condition which is why it is valued for nurses to communicate effectively (Han, 2009). Proper communication by a nurse can give caregivers and/or patients the powers of freedom and independence concerning their health once they are discharged from the hospital (Bauer, 2009).
Identify Nurses oles in Discharge Planning
In most discharge planning, nurses have a central role. As a generalization discharge planing, nurses ensure that their patient receives their medication, instructions, and have discussions with patients and their family regarding concerns dealing with discharge (Han, 2009). Nurses must identify those who require discharge planning and begin the transfer from one facility to another (or to home) (Han, 2009). Also,…… [Read More]
