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.

Socialization Process

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]

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.

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.

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.

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]

Positive feedback is a major part of the Family Systems Theory process. Feedback in this case is a process in which the family, and possibly the teaching team involved, all work together to regulate the thinking process of the college age student with learning disabilities. This process also incorporates the notion that positive self-talk by the college age student with some form of learning disability is a necessary component of educational success. Self-talk helps them monitor their own output. In other words, the human body in this case accepts feedback from both internal and external sources to promote positive goals and objectives. A good example of a positive feedback system is how an automatic pilot system is used in most commercial airplanes. The automatic pilot process provides a computer that is actually flying the plane constant feedback about required information regarding the planes speed, altitude, direction and so on. As the plane drifts off course slightly, the computer system realigns the flight path. The college age student with a learning disability also drifts off occurs from time to time and positive feedback from family members, teachers and counselors and the student themselves all help to get the student back on course. This approach continually promotes active coping efforts and attributes positive meaning to the learning situation.

Name of Theory: FAMILY STRESS & COPING THEORY

Based on Family Stress Theory, there can be many indicators of a family's adaptation to stress induced events. "One is the adaptation of individual family members, including adolescents have noted that such factors as the perceived levels of individual and family stress serve as markers of adaptation."

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.

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]

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]

Teen Pregnancy

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.

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.

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 Assistance Centers Role Sept 11

Words: 810 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 33926722

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]

Planning

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

Words: 732 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 10642179

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.

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.

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

Words: 673 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 50410978

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.

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]

Wedding Market Planning Developing a Market Plan

Words: 844 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 9456023

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. Thus, for the business owner / entrepreneur / wedding planner, s/he must be both a generalist and a specialist: generalist, because s/he must be able to envision and visualize the overall result of the wedding plan, and specialist, because s/he must be a master of details and linking these details together to…… [Read More]

Words: 1648 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 31464677

Happy Family

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.

Non-Traditional Families

Words: 1640 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 57019930

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]

evidence planning Thursday 4:00pm

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]

Risk Management in Family Owned Businesses

Words: 4161 Length: 12 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 78895817

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]

Professional Ethical Codes and Practices Risen Poverty in the Nation's Young Families

Words: 750 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 57740201

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]

Importance of Family in the Health of Our Society

Words: 1133 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 37820327

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]

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."

Future Planning & Change Management

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]

Nursing What Is Discharge Planning

Words: 1129 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 25156466

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).

Hip fracture is a main health issue that happens in the United States. This study uses the baseline (1993) and data collected in 2006 in order to evaluate the aftermath of hip placement discharge. Patient discharge depends on the status code from the Medicare inpatient claim. They categorize discharge status depending on the condition of the patient. Mr. Trosack would fall for nursing facility because he would not get the required professional assistance from his family. In this study, most of the hip fracture patients went to a nursing facility.

An evaluation in this study reveals that at the time of placement, the patients had gone home for 90 days, and 180 days for patients discharged at a nursing facility. The evaluation of the care of hip placement patients needs consideration when choosing a discharge placement for them. Mr. Trosack, in addition to the surgery, is diagnosed with diabetes, hypertension, and obesity. The family, despite knowing all this, does not provide or hire a medical officer for a regular check up on him.

In order for Mr. Trosack to get well, it is crucial to refer him to a nursing facility. In this study, the home and rehabilitation discharge seems to decline while many people opt for the nursing placement, which increased. In these nursing facilities, patients are not likely to report any health issue compared to those placed at their homes. In addition, these nursing facilities offer functional needs to patients and may reduce hip fractures in elderly people.
