When someone asked me what I thought a crisis was, the first examples that came to my mind was Hurricane Katrina, September 11, 2001. Once I began to think more of what the definition of a crisis would be, I know that it is the reaction of how someone reacts to a crisis event. Other examples may be suicide, homicide, domestic violence, and different traumas that one experiences. Once we began our discussions in class, I realized that a crisis and how one deals with a crisis, whether it is a natural, manmade or personal, effects each person differently. How that person handles the crisis, may have short term or long term effects that may lead to a mental illness. That is one of the points that I found very interesting, among other information we learned in class, along with the various speakers that we had.

Uncontrollable circumstances can easily turn your life around. Some people are made to adapt and others are not. Things fall apart and things are built back up but it's always a tough journey. Judy Boone has most definitely learned that, and so have I. Much like her, I find myself having difficulties adapting to change, especially when it's unexpected. It's understandable to enjoy knowing exactly what is happening and when. Although the reality is generally much less predictable than what is in our heads. Causing people to lash out in massive ways. I find this topic to be so important because I have very recently found, that in my life, it is essential to be adaptable and to take what you're given with a positive attitude and to absolutely never run away from your problems.
Rendon was discussing a teacher’s class that was in the meeting and reviewing the teachers data, noticed there were many students who had dropped on their last STAR reading test. She informed the teacher that she was concerned and ask her what she could do to help in the classroom. I was shocked that the new teacher wasn’t offended or embarrassed, and accepted the help. I then realized there was a great amount of trust that the teachers had with Mrs. Rendon. The teachers felt supported and understood when Mrs. Rendon asked what the teachers needed, she was genuinely concerned and wanted to help. Research on group processes in schools has shown that leaders who trust and believe in others and model these traits accomplish far more and develop devoted followers (Martin, Danzig, Wright, Flanary, & Brown,

There are things that happen when we are growing up that change us when we are grown. There are things that change us forever. Every human being is different, and there is a reason why . All of us had a childhood and all kinds of experiences some good, some bad, some full of joy but also others very painful. Eventually we grow childhood and mature depending of what we have gone through. The way we are able to handle situations is very important because one thing leads to another. We can't rely on intuition, we need to have logic in what our choices are. We can’t just punch someone in the face just because we don’t like a certain individual, or go up to
Green Meadows Hospital is newly constructed community hospital owned by Southern Hospitals Corporation. Kate Cooper was very excited when she got a new position at Green Meadows as a Manager of Adult Services. They started hiring people and were getting ready to open the hospital. However, things did not go well as they planned and wanted to. Therefore, Kate had to resign. The biggest problem that I see in this was their unorganized management skills and communications skills.
