Domestic violence has been an ongoing issue among couples in society. This violence is not something that is new; it has been around for a long time. Domestic violence, can range from physical, mental, and emotional. When a couple is in an intimate relationship or married, one of the individuals in the relationship tries to dominate the other partner by trying to control them. This is commonly called domestic violence. A vast majority of domestic violence cases go unreported each year. This could be because the victim believes their spouse will harm them more if police are involved or the victim thinks they can fix and stop the violence themselves. The public is more aware that women are the victims. A male being abused does not often come
The safety and security of many children across the world are in danger due to physical abuse. Child abuse has been linked to an assortment of changes in the brain which result in psychological, behavioral, and academic problems. While it is unclear whether the population that had been maltreated as children is accurate, physical maltreatment in the first 5 years of life places a child at risk for a variety of psychological and behavioral problems during adolescence. The following three literature reviews attempts to prove and support the premise.
Borderline Personality Disorder is a mental disorder characterized by instability in mood, impulsiveness, unstable relationships, and chronic emptiness. Borderline Personality Disorder affects approximately two percent of the population, and is predominately found in women. This disorder makes it difficult for people to understand social norms and the dynamics of relationships, so unpredictable and erratic behavior are common. Although Borderline Personality Disorder is incurable, it is treatable through talk therapy and medication. (Friedel, 2004, p. 2)
Even though research proves that childhood traumas are buried and/or have the ineffectiveness of being buried, memories serve as a trigger for trauma. Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and Dissociative Disorder (DD) greatly explains why Ned acts the way he does. For instance, Ned struggles with figuring out who he is as person currently. He is the son of a photographer and is an awkward teen that is a runner. The night when Greg and Ned met Brys, the druid, and Cadell in the middle of road, it hinted at the type of disorder Ned faces. Brys was annoyed with Greg’s unfiltered mouth, and snapped him back onto the concrete. Ned’s reaction to this action took place instantly. Ned automatically switched into a different emotional state he had
Borderline personality disorder is a serious mental illness that directly affects one’s behavior, moods, and relationships/socialization skills. Borderline personality disorder often is associated with co-occurring disorders like depression, suicidal behaviors, anxiety, abuse of drugs and alcohol, as well as eating disorders. The behavior of a person diagnosed with borderline is also described to erratic and impulsive. The cause of borderline personality disorder is still not entirely clear at this point, although trials and studies suggest that it can be passed down through genetic traits. It is also suggested that one’s environment/upbringing may play a huge factor in the diagnoses as well.
Identity issue is no more to be a diagnosis of exclusion it needs a reasonable system that fits both the indications of the disease and the behavioral issues that constitute its current diagnostic criteria. This paper discuses major psychological disorders. It will concentrate in Paranoid, Antisocial and Borderline personality disorders. This paper uses research to define these disorders, discusses their characteristics and how they affect their daily life and the workplace. In this paper I offer my own perspective of these disorders as they relates to college career and life.
on the inability to manage emotions effectively. This disorder was only just recognized in 1980
Mental illnesses can affect a wide range of people and they do not discriminate. This is shown in the movie, “Girl, Interrupted,” which was directed by James Mangold. The movie is based on the memoir by Susanna Kaysen. Susanna Kaysen was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder and spent a period of eighteen months in a psychiatric facility. The movie is based in a mental hospital, in the east, during the 1960s. After the main character, Susanna, attempts suicide, she admits herself into a psychiatric hospital. It is here that she is diagnosed with borderline personality disorder.
Borderline personality disorder (BPD) has only been viewed as a condition of its own in the last 20 years but there has been documentation of people with the characteristics of this disorder as far back as 3000 years ago. The American Psychological Association added BPD as a mental health disorder in the past 20 years, yet, it's often misunderstood by the public and often misdiagnosed for other mental conditions or overlooked entirely by the professionals. This condition consists of dysfunction behaviors such as splitting, parasuicide, impulsivity, disillusions, and low self esteem, however, there is no specific test to diagnosis this disorder but high risk factors include family history or genetics, experiencing childhood trauma, and other
How much do we truly know about ourselves? Have you ever wondered how much you know about how others view you? This struck me with great interest, so I took a series of tests to see what personality I have, if I have a sleeping disorder, what level of self-esteem I have, and if I have borderline personality disorder. The test results seemed to be reading me like a book. The realities whether I want choose to accept it is the test results are amazingly accurate.
The hypothesis of the article I chose is that emotion dysregulation would be a specific mediator of associations between borderline personality disorders (BPD) symptoms and aggression (Scott, Stepp, and Pilkonis, 2014). The introduction of the article states that often time borderline personalities and antisocial personality can be misunderstood in the ways they play a role in individuals. Borderline and antisocial personalities have similar characteristics but that borderline personality is geared more to harming others directly. One with BPD is more of a threat than one who is antisocial for instance. Furthermore, the hypothesis was put to the test and the authors of this
Three of the most known personality disorders are antisocial, borderline, and narcissistic disorder. Antisocial personality disorder is the best-known type of personality disorders and people with this disorder typically show no regard for moral and ethical rules of society as well as the rights of others. People with this disorder may appear likable at first, but over time will show to be manipulative and deceptive. The lack of guilt or remorse is also evident with people that have antisocial personality disorder. The second personality disorder is borderline personality disorder, which people with that disorder have a difficulty of developing a sense as to who they are. Therefore, people with borderline personality disorder often rely
Borderline Personality Disorder is one of the many serious mental conditions that is challenge to the individual suffering as well as family, friends or co-workers. Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is known by impulsive behavior and instability, self-image and personal relationship issues. Individuals suffering from BPD may experience many of these symptoms listed in the DSM-V, “inappropriate, uncontrollable or vehement anger, chronic boredom or feelings of emptiness, extreme efforts to avoid abandonment, recurring suicidal threats or attempts, non-suicidal self-injury such as cutting or burning, and marked mood swings with periods of intense depressed mood irritability or anxiety.” (DSM-5, 2013) To support my analysis of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) I am going to review and evaluate twelve literatures. In conclusion, one out of twenty-five men and women are dealing with this condition every day and since this illness is easily misdiagnosed I hope to bring more awareness to this disorder.
The poem “My Papa’s Waltz” by Theodore Roethke makes the argument that parental abuse will ruin the innocence of childhood by causing psychological trauma. Roethke uses a personal experience he had with his father in order to convey how he loved his father, but also feared him in their complicated relationship. The speaker is a “small boy” who loves his father immensely and pictures his father as the parent he always wanted, but is frightened by his father’s behavior under the influence of alcoholism. He says, “The hand that held my wrist was battered on one knuckle; At every step you missed my right ear scraped a buckle” (Lines 9-12). The juxtaposition between the waltz, an elegant and formal type of dancing, and the jarring effect of the
The analysis reveals Alex as the character that demonstrates a Psychopathic disorder, particularly, the borderline personality disorder. This follows her one-night affair with Dan, a happily married businessman who has a daughter, Ellen and the wife, Beth. Throughout the film, Alex’s disorder is demonstrated by stalking Dan at every level in an endless attempt to alienate him with his family after they shared a weekend when Beth and Ellen are away. Dan thought his adulterous action would be sealed at it would only be a one-night affair, but Alex feels otherwise as seen even before the end of the weekend. When he made clear to Alex that they would never go far with the affair, Alex fiercely rejects the proposal, but Dan would not relent and hence, instigates the borderline personality
