The first criticism of loss of control is that the defence is too wide, this is because there are no requirements for it to be a sudden loss of control and so the law on homicide must be changed in order to provide certain aspects which make up a sudden loss of control. In addition the elements of the circumstance of an extremely grave character are very objective and limited which means the judge has lot of power in order to decide what may be allowed, this should be changed because what the judge states an extremely grave character consists of may differ to a reasonable man, this aspect needs to be changed so there is clear elements which include what a extremely grave character involves. Furthermore loss of control may be seen as narrow
The Canadian Aeronautics Administration (CAA) has commissioned two contracting companies, Hollenbeck Aircraft and Eskina Software Systems, to build a set of giant robotic arms known as Retractable Extended-Arms Compatible Holder, or REACH, for the International Space Station. The REACH project has a deadline of six years. It has been noted that under normal circumstances the project would take around 10 years but there are time constraints due to political pressure in the form of threats to cut funding to the CAA and deadlines for construction on the space station itself. The time constraints have been of the utmost importance to the project. But, while the contractors have maintained the deadlines,
Crisis intervention is emergency first aid for mental health (Ehly, 1986). In this paper, I intend to show you a brief overview of what crisis intervention is, describe what school psychologists do and summarize the steps they may use to identify, assess, and intervene with an individual experiencing crisis.
This piece is written by Mark Colvin, a professor of Sociology in the Department of Justice Studies at Kent State University, as the introduction to the book “Descent into Madness” by Mike Rolland. On February 2nd & 3rd, 1980 one of the maximum security prisons in New Mexico experienced one of the most violent riots in the history of American Correctional System. This is often referred to as The New Mexico State Penitentiary Riot. The riot lasted for 36 hours, and in those 36 hours there were 33 deaths. There was one other inmate who dies a couple of months later due to the injuries incurred in that riot. It is estimated that about 200 inmates were severely injured or raped in the riot. It is no surprise
Control can be described in many ways, as freedom or restraint. Without the restraint that stability can offer, a person could easily lose direction in life. But a loss of control can also result in anger at those who are perceived to be responsible. In many cases this loss can give rise to a need for revenge without thought for the consequences. In the stories, “Old Mother Savage”, Trifles, and “Wedding at the Cross”, the psychological effects of the loss of control over one’s life manifests itself differently in different people but ultimately it always results in an attempts to regain a semblance of control through desperate actions which often prove costly.
In the essay “Under the Influence,” Scott Russell Sanders uses his recollection and metaphors to portray an image of his father’s drinking customs. While certain people believe that children who are raised in a home with a drunk often follow in their footsteps, Sanders did the paradoxical and became a man whom his father was not. Although nothing but disappointment was demonstrated throughout the manuscript, Sanders made a connection with himself and his father. The relation contrived was his father 's afflicting dependence for alcohol and his uplifting addiction to working. Although plentiful children suffer from growing up with a guardian who has an addiction obstacle, Sanders overcame his misery by concentrating on himself and becoming a “workaholic”.
“Of all forms of mental activity, the most difficult to induce even in the minds of the young, who may be presumed not to have lost their flexibility, is the art of handling the same bundle of data as before, but placing them in a new system of relations with one another by giving them a different framework, all of which virtually means putting on a different kind of thinking-cap for the moment. It is easy to teach anybody a new fact…but it needs light from heaven above to enable a teacher to break the old framework in which the student is accustomed to seeing.”
1. In the “Melissa Dohme story--48 hours: live to tell: One last hug” ( Finley, producer, 2014) segment, Melissa explains that her case of intimate partner violence was previously reported to 911 Operators. Subsequently, when the two Clearwater Police officers show up, Melissa is told by the officers, “you know, we don't wanna keep coming out here. ... the girl always goes back. ... and they said, "we don't ever wanna see you again” (Dohme; Finley, producer, 2014). This seems to be a very common police response when it comes to victim’s who report domestic and IPV violence. Also, the demeaning police response stereotypes all victims; however, each abuse case is not the same. In my viewpoint, this issue is concerning when the police chose

In it's simplest form, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, (or CBT as it will be referred to from here on out), refers to the approach of changing dysfunctional behaviors and thoughts to realistic and healthy ones. CBT encompasses several types of therapy focusing on the impact of an individual's thinking as it relates to expressed behaviors. Such models include rational emotive therapy (RET), rational emotive behavioral therapy (REBT), behavior therapy (BT), Rational Behavior Therapy (RBT), Schema Focused Therapy, Cognitive therapy (CT). Most recently a few other variations have been linked to CBT such as acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectic behavioral therapy (DBT), and
A hopeful but financially desperate American country music singer inherits a Scottish mansion, but before he can sell it, he has to help the local misfit pipe and drum band win the national championship.
Systematic Control Perspective is stemming from a Rational Choice Theory in it’s believe that people make rational choices before their actions. It presents a view that all humans are prone to make intelligential, logical decisions and any false step therefore is subject to punishment. Our current criminal justice system was practically build on that notion. It was created to be convenient and straight-forward, disregarding factors that might have an impact on an individual to commit a crime. While SCP is presenting a view on criminal motivation, it is completely missing psychosocial and biological factors that are scientifically proven to play a role in an individual’s behaviour. Furthermore, SCP is presenting a view of types of control that limit an individual from committing a crime, but it does not provide a full explanation of why a person chooses to ignore physical, resource, social and moral controls, which leads to a commitment of crime. Additionally, according to SCP’s legalistic view of crime, crime is an act prohibited by law and for which a state-initiated punishment is authorised. The net effect of this view is that crime and the punishment for it are defined by relatively few people compared to the whole population. Although, government and its laws are reasonably created by and for people, it does not always have a
Addiction to my cognizance is a illness or a condition when a person ingest a substance such, alcohol or cocaine or even engages in an activity such as wagering, sex and shopping.Although these examples can be pleasurable in that moment, but if perpetuated it becomes compulsive and interferes with their life responsibilities, such as work, relationships, and number one quandary their health. Many individuals may not be vigilant that their actions are out of control and engendering nurmrous things in their lives and the lives of the individuals proximate to them.When it comes to addiction to a drug the body inclines to acclimate to the presence of that drug then causes that drug to no longer have the same effect as before, which then the individual
Different countries have people that hold many different views and beliefs. In Nigeria the Igbo area is located in the southern area of the country. And within this area is Umuofia, which is where the Ogidi tribe lives. These people have beliefs that rest strongly on religion and faith in god. "Things Fall Apart" by Chinua Achebe takes a look at the life of an African tribe that has been isolated from the outer more technologically advanced world where science has become a part of religion proving that certain things live sickness are not caused by evil spirits. But the African tribe has no knowledge of this and they live in a society where there traditions, beliefs and there forms of communication differ from are own.
