One of the effects of the vicious poison of relationships known as lack of communication creates a side effect of isolation. Isolation is a position in which any human will make mistakes which they may greatly regret in the near future. This is exemplified when Ann is isolated at home and ends up cheating on John with Steve. After she has betrayed John she realizes of her
What can I take away from the experience of observing this video that will help me build knowledge and Self-Awareness in Therapeutic Communication?
I viewed the video several times and read the transcript several times, in order to identify salient incidents. I made notes on initial reactions of the interviewees and noted any non-verbal characteristics that could have an impact on the way the incidents could change my understanding of the interviews. Various themes were chosen, as being the main topics, described in the analysis these were (i) Work, (ii) Childhood (iii) Relationships. The transcript of the interviews was then highlighted, and each theme was identified using different coloured highlighted pens.
Overall, I think there are many aspects to this video that connect to the society we live in today. The video strongly highlights wants vs needs which is a growing problem in our society that needs to be addressed and instilled into humans at a young
I felt the Muriel Duncan video agrees with a philosy that I have about life. I have always felt that with enough effort and dediciation almost anyone can achieve the goals that set for themselves. Learning and education can continue through a person's entire life, you can can learn up until your last day on Earth. There is so much information available to people across that planet that anyone has the ability to educate themselves and learn new things if they put the effort into learning. Muriel showed that a person can be older and still find ways to protore education and achieve their dreams.
The video on sexual abuse is very interesting also. Sexual abuse and lifetime cycle of mental health diagnosis are in tandem with one another. Sexual abuse is related to anxiety, eating disorders, and PTSD, along with others. Sexual abuse survivors have increased need of clinical
In chapter 9 Looking Out, Looking in by Ronald. B. Adler, Adler informs us about intimacy in close relationships. The four dimensions of intimacy are physical, intellectual, emotional, and shared activities, and it’s quite often that a majority of relationships exhibit all four of these dimensions, while others exhibit one or two. According to research Masculine, and feminine styles can demonstrate how women are shown to be more willing to share their feelings, than men. An abundance of cultures influence intimacy, and the notions of public and private selves have changed dramatically. Collectivist cultures generally do not reach to outsiders, although they often wait until they are introduced before entering a conversation. Individualistic
After watching the video in class, it has demonstrated the view of three different generations from different time periods. In my point of view, each of the three generation had something special, meaningful, and something that should be a part of every generation in the future, because it is this generation is lacking positive actions our parents and grandparents used to do.
Bartholomew & Horowitz (1991) also defined the different attachment styles, secure, preoccupied, fearful, and dismissive, according to dependence and avoidance. The researchers defined avoidance as the degree to which people avoid close contact with others as a result of their expectation of aversive consequences; and dependence is defined on a spectrum where those low in dependence represents the establishment of positive self-regard internally without the need for validation from others and those high in dependence are only able to internalize positive self-regard when they receive constant external validation.
Perhaps I have not experienced the events described in the video--such as financial issues--but I have also experienced times of vulnerability. Sometimes when I am struggling at school, losing confidence in myself, or simply need to vent out my anger, it is very helpful when there is someone nearby. It seems like when I find myself in these difficult situations, it is very comforting when I have a line of friends and family to support me. This makes me want to help others through rough times as well.
Which stories or parts of the video segments had the most impact on each of you? Why? For example, how was an individual’s level of participation specifically affected by their aphasia? Did you see yourself or your friends or family in any of the individuals (caregivers included) in the videos?
I have decided to choose the topic of bullying. Bullying definition is a person, adult, or child, who hurts or intimidates others weaker then himself or herself. (Canadian dictionary and thesaurus, 2004) The newspaper stories cover three types of bullying, The reason why I picked this topic is because I have a personal connection with bullying issues and I am an advocate for our society to stand up to this sociology problem.
Intimacy vs Isolation normally starts at age 20, but for her it started earlier, she had many strong friendships with people. Even though most of them also went to different colleges and some are still around. She did lost contact with them. “I really don’t have too many friends right now, I just have people whom I known, but none of them are close friends. The only close people is my family.” She started dating a guy when she was in 8th grade. Since then she decided to get marry
Fortunately, I do not have a first hand experience with cyberbullying. I am very thankful for that and I hope I never have to undergo what the victims of cyberbullying have to endure. Nonetheless, in the kind of world we live in today, it would be almost shocking if someone didn't know a single person who had to deal with cyberbullying at one point. My best friend, whom I've grown up living next to, is two years older than me. She attends my town's public school, when she first transitioned from catholic elementary/middle school to a ginormous public high school, it was difficult for her. By the time people reach high school they have formed their very close-knit groups of friends. She couldn't find where she belonged and practically spent most of her freshman year alone. A few months into her sophomore year, she had found her group and things were looking
