Emotional Burnout in Caretaking

Words: 327 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 34102831

Wellness Inventory

The two surveys taken for this assignment both hone in on what can lead to a "running out" of compassion as well as burnout in general. Indeed, people's emotional and compassion reservoirs can only hold so much. Further, if those reservoirs are tapped too much for too long, they become exhausted and this leads to emotional exhaustion and burnout. When it comes to the quizzes themselves, the spiritual and emotional maturity quiz was indeed the more fascinating and intricate, at least in the perception of the author of this response. The six principles identified as part of the wider model as well as the level of maturity that can be had for each part of the model are very well-designed and crafted. Indeed, all facets of our maturity are on a sliding scale that ranges from infant to adolescence and it should be the goal of every person,…… [Read More]

Establishing an NP Led Wellness and Recovery Center for Deinstitutionalized Individuals

Historically, nursing, and medicine professions have been loath to utilize tools commonly linked with mercenary aspects of business, such as market research and decision analysis. In the contemporary health care setting, however, consumers hold numerous options for care providers. The division of the market or market segmentation into different subgroups allows the determination of target markets and the buildup of marketing policies specific to the needs and interests of the selected subgroups. Market analysis allows the identification of policies for nurse practitioners to enhance their practice in a way that centers on the interests and needs of the selected market. While scores of the nurse practitioner's dream of operating their own businesses, those that have set up their own practice understand that it requires a compelling passion for owning a business, and for the profession.

Counseling

Develop your theoretical orientation to the counseling process and identify how this approach compares to Cognitive Behavioral theory

Since its inception nearly fifty years ago, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has become recognized as perhaps the most effective therapeutic approach. Indeed, CBT has myriad uses, and is applied in a number of situations, including depression, personality disorders, and wellness and rehabilitation. However, there also exist limitations to cognitive behavioral therapy, mainly surrounding treatment with patients from diverse cultures. This paper develops appropriate therapeutic orientations, discussing different therapeutic concerns and approaches. First, attention is paid to the nature of people; next, the role of the individual in families and other systems is addressed. Then, multicultural considerations, wellness and prevention, and the nature of problems are discussed. Finally, the paper addresses the process of change and how the orientations enacted are successful in practice.

Clinical Mental Health Counseling Has

Words: 826 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 73505589

During this period, there was a rather dramatic paradigm shift from the rather "mechanistic-deterministic" philosophy of psychoanalysis and behaviorism to the "self-deterministism" of the humanistic philosophy that is envisioned in by Carl odgers as noted by Aubrey (1983).odger's impact on counseling as a profession, pragmatically and philosophically was great. This is because his work is what led to the birth of counseling as a separate professional entity from psychology, guidance as well as psychiatry. Therefore, the philosophical underpinnings of counseling as a profession can be traced and acknowledged on the work of odgers. Later on, the need for training professional counselors became important and then in 1958, the National Defense Education Act (NDEA) was formed. This act was created in order to prepare thousands of counselors (Aubrey,1983,p.79).later on, various professional accreditation bodies were created for the counseling profession. One such kind is the Council for the Accredition for Counseling and…… [Read More]

Psychology Theories

In psychology, personality can be described as the "the patterns of behavior, thought, and emotion unique to an individual, and the ways they interact to help or hinder the adjustment of a person to other people and situations" ("personality," 2013). Psychologists may make use of idiographic or nomothetic techniques in order to study personality of an individual. Many characteristics of human behavior can be examined while studying one's personality. To put in simple words, personality theories are utilized for organizing what is known, stimulating new research, and specifying a view of personality in a formal way (Kasschau, 1985). Psychoanalytic theory, person-centered theory and existential theory are three such theories which have been developed in the precedent century and cover a lot of information regarding the pathology, health/wellness, treatment and the weight or significance of early life.

Catholic Healthcare West

Catholic Healthcare West (CHW) is a not-for-profit healthcare organization serving parts of Arizona, Nevada and the majority of California. With 42 hospitals it is the largest Catholic hospital system in this part of the United States. The organization focuses its services upon the poor, who cannot afford private hospital services. Regardless, the aim is also to provide high-quality healthcare to those in need. The target market is thus the poor in the western areas of the United States.

Taking into account the size of Catholic Healthcare West, it should not be a problem to implement new services without a loss of either mission or customers. New services should however be implemented with the proper care to ensure that the focus remains as originally intended.

Her post-menopausal period leaves a woman with increased risk of osteoporosis, and hormone-replacement therapy may need to be considered or dismissed depending upon the needs and wellness of the individual women. Additionally, increased risk for obesity begins nearly at the adolescent period, when women's hormone loads change and often activity of childhood decreases.

Middleton Hospital Scenario

As Middlefield Hospital approaches the beginning of another year serving the health needs of our community, the strides we have made in replenishing the workforce with qualified staff should be applauded, but there remains work to be done. After meeting with the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and listening to a detailed analysis of the hospital's financial performance during the last six months, it has become apparent that Middlefield must consider fundamental adjustments if our strict budgetary limitations are to be met. Having convened a meeting of Middlefield Hospitals' team of executives and managers, a total of six critical obstacles to future profitability have been brought to my attention, including the arrival of a competing medical facility in the region which is attracting patients and internal issues in terms of billing and insurance.

These variables will affect their underlying levels of health and ability to deal with various challenges in their lives.

Friends and relatives usually are not supportive of these changes. Barriers to these shifts include: no sense of urgency, the social and cultural symbolism of certain foods, the poor taste of choices, the expenses for embracing these transformation and lack of information.

For all employees with chronic health problems such as arthritis, asthma, and diabetes, FedEx offered a disease management program to give them guidance. The emphasis is on health improvement and wellness maintenance, rather than treating on treating disease alone. Wellness promotion strategies reduce employee demand for higher-cost health-care services, improve productivity and reduce sick days. Employees get a sense that the company cares about them, which fosters loyalty. An employee will feel more favorably towards a company that supports him or her during a time of sickness with physical therapy and adequate services, so the employee does not have to worry him or herself 'sick' over wondering where he or she will get care.

Counseling as a Distinct Profession: The History and Philosophy of the Profession

Marini and Stebnicki (2008) point out that although counseling as a term made its first appearance (in print) sometimes in the year 1931, the practice of the same had started earlier on. It is important to note that although the roots of counseling as a helping relationship can be traced to the early omanian and Greek times, the actual development of the counseling profession as we know it today largely started taking place in the late 1800s.

4. In one paragraphe, discuss your own attitudes toward aging and ageism.

All too often, the elderly in our society are not shown the value or care they deserve. Aging often leads to social isolation, economic insecurity, loss of a life-partner and a decline in physical capabilities. Quality of life in such instances can only be assured by a compassionate support system. An absence of such a system is a leading factor in one's vulnerability to ageism. Here, opportunities for quality of life become decidedly limited.

5. Identify and discuss health care disparities that you have read or heard about in the past 1-2 years in the news media.

Recent years have led to greater acknowledgement of terrible disparity in life quality for older adults as a function of socioeconomic differences. Financial resources are a top determinant of the way that older adults live in their final years.

The purpose of this historiography is to use secondary sources that will make for a greater understanding of my topic and how it relates to American body culture. In the last six decades obese people have faced discrimination in American society because of their physical appearance. Typically, society has categorized obese people as unhealthy individuals; their appearance causes discomfort; they are viewed pessimistically by employers and their career opportunities as a result have been limited. While more than 27% of the American population is obese, the federal government does nothing to prevent employment discrimination against obese or overweight people. The focus of this paper will be to analyze the issue of cultural discrimination against obese and overweight individuals and provide recommendations for changes with regard to the treatment of obese people in society so that they might be more accepted socially and enabled to fit more seamlessly into mainstream American…… [Read More]

Here, they indicate that "participation in cardio-based workouts (e.g., cardiovascular machines) was positively related to self-objectification, disordered eating behaviour, and appearance-related reasons for exercise, and negatively related to body esteem." (Prichard & Tiggemann, p. 855)

Among other things, this implies that in order to yield the true benefits of such an exercise program, one must combine this with other measures of lifestyle change as well. The failure of such programs is often prefigured by the half-hearted commitment that come with selective lifestyle change. Karas (2008) implies that dietary changes are necessary in order to accommodate changes as well. (p. xiii)

Covey was born in 1932 in Salt Lake City, Utah; he has his undergraduate degree (in business administration) from the University of Utah, an MBA from the Harvard Business School, and a Doctorate in Religious Education from Brigham Young University. (Covey is a practicing Mormon). He is currently a professor in the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University. Covey is perhaps best known for his 1989 bestseller The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: to date the book has sold more than fifteen million copies worldwide.

Gerry assumes that because Maria has been successful as a small entrepreneur that her business will easily be integrated into a much larger-scale operation. Although her product has national distribution, this does not necessarily translate into widespread market demand for all demographic groups. Food is very regionalized in terms of eaters' preferences (for example, deep dish pizza is popular in Chicago while 'skinny' pizza is popular on the east coast). Maria's tacos may have an audience, but it does not necessarily coincide with that of Manchester Food's audience. Furthermore, some foods work well as small scale operations but do not as a mass-produced product. For example, on the streets of New York, halal food in like grilled lamb in pitas is very tasty and affordable but this has not translated into generic fast food success for this item.

Most companies assert to prospective employees that the corporation offers excellent benefits and a good salary. But few corporations make such assertions part of its corporate, core mission statement. According to Starbucks, the motto of the international, Seattle-based coffee company is that "Our success depends on your success." This statement is not simply directed at Starbuck's customers, but to its employees as well. (Starbucks, "Job Center," Official ebsite, 2004)

hat does this effusive corporate motto and mission statement really mean? Starbucks is unique as a franchise restaurant in that it offers a variety of employment opportunities, such as retail store manager, as advertised upon the Internet.

I am specifically choosing to meditate every day, for twenty minutes, for a month. During this meditation I will say positive things to myself, in order to reprogram my brain to always being mindful, focused and always thinking positively. I feel that by combining the affirmations with meditation, I will create a stronger habit, and one that is known to produce the sort of change that I am looking for with respect to the reprogramming of the brain.

This behavior is expected to have a positive impact on my overall wellness. The two elements, the affirmations and the meditations will have slightly different effects.

In 2011, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released data regarding the number of abortions performed three years prior in 2008. Considering that an epidemic is defined as a "widespread occurrence of an infectious disease in a community at a particular time," or in meningococcal terms, a rate of attack that is more than 15 cases for every 100,000 people (Green, Swartz, Mayshar, Lev, Levanthal, Slater, Shemer, 2002), it may be appropriate to state that abortion in America has reached beyond epidemic proportions.

Hangover a Good Number of Contemporary Movies

Words: 931 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 3719316

Hangover

A good number of contemporary movies are written as comic, tongue-in-cheek commentary on the nature of our society. The Hangover, released in 2009, is set exactly on this premise, and, in the process of attempting to deliver an entertaining story about binge drinking and bachelor parties. While it isn't a film that was written to offer in-depth social analysis is does offer some fairly rudimentary commentary on physical, social, and emotional wellness in connection with relationships, friendships, and drinking.

From its opening scene, one of the most notable aspects of The Hangover is that the premise of the story is based on a group of four male friends, their interactions, their relationships with women, and their experience at a bachelor party in Las Vegas. The attempts at humor in the film are concentrated on stereotyped characters, and worst-case outcomes that, in reality, wouldn't be entertaining or laughable.
