ECU's Procare study will evaluate a telephone-based coping skills training program tailored to black prostate cancer survivors and their intimate partners.

Tips on Coping with Mouth, Gum, and Throat Problems Related to Radiation Therapy. If you are undergoing radiation therapy to treat cancer, you and your doctor may have discussed the different problems that may occur due to treatment. For instance, problems in the oral area teeth, gums, and throat are common with radiation therapy to nearby areas. While your cancer care team will manage any oral health problems that may occur from treatment, there are also actions you can take. Understanding the Problem. Cancer occurs when cells in the body divide without control or order. Radiation treats cancer by killing these out-of-control cells. However, since normal cells also divide but do so in a regulated manner, they too are killed. This can prevent tissues in the oral area from repairing themselves during normal wear and tear. Can...

In addition to the idea of overlapping, the quote on the info page from Raymond Williams's Ideas of Nature mentions the "dramatic impulse" - How does that relate to the project.

Obesity, Labeling, and Psychological Distress in Black and White Girls: The Distal Effects of Stigma. Hypothesis 2 labeling hypothesis : Earlier obesity will be associated with distal psychological distress, but the effects will be mediated by labeling from parents and friends. Hypothesis 5 developmental hypothesis : The effects of early labeling on distal psychological distress will be stronger when the labeling occurs during early adolescence compared to late childhood or mid adolescence. Putting all of this together, in this study we integrate a life course perspective with MLT to examine whether experiencing obesity and labeling at different ages during late childhood, early and mid adolescence has distal effects on psychological distress among girls. As to the distal effects of earlier obesity and labeling, there were significant effects of obesity at age 11-12 and age 13-14 on psychological distress in late adolescence age 18-21. For the distal effects on psychological distress among black girls, there ...

Purpose Cross-sectional and longitudinal associations among regimen distress RD, self-management, and glycemic control were undertaken to explore mechanisms of operation among these variables. Methods In a behavioral randomized control trial RCT to reduce RD, 392 adults with type 2 diabetes were assessed on RD, diet, exercise, medication adherence, and HbA1c at baseline, and 4 and 12 months. Associations among RD, self-management, and HbA1c were examined in cross-sectional analyses at baseline, in prospective analyses using baseline values to predict change over time, and in time-varying analyses. Significant time-varying findings showed that decreases in RD were associated with improvements in medication adherence p .01, physical activity p .001, and HbA1c p=.02 over time following intervention. Changes in self-management were not associated with changes in HbA1c over time. Conclusions...

Cancer affects people in many different ways, and teens face extreme emotional stress along with the physical effects of the disease. Many teens struggle to cope with powerful fears related to mortality when they or someone in their family is diagnosed with the disease. Even those whose families have not yet suffered from cancer will still feel the effects it has on their friends and peers. Signs that a teen is troubled and unable to easily cope with the development of this disease include:. Withdrawal from social activities Periods of depression and anxiety Disengagement from friends and family An unhealthy obsession with death and dying. Family and Friends With Cancer. Teens with family members suffering from the effects of cancer are likely to become emotionally unsettled by the toll it takes on their loved one.

Psychological distress was associated with a higher risk of death from stroke, according to a new study by researchers in UCL Epidemiology Public Health, published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal. While there is evidence linking psychological distress to coronary artery disease, there is a dearth of data linking psychological distress with the risk of death from stroke and other cerebrovascular diseases. The mean age of participants was 54.9 years of age, 45% were male and 96.1% were white. To measure psychological distress, they used the General Health Questionnaire GHQ-12, a widely used measure in population studies.

Risk for developing clinical depression significantly increases after experiencing social stress;. Similarly, social stress arising from discrimination is related to greater depressive symptoms. Long-term effects. People who have fewer social contacts are at greater risk for developing illness, including cardiovascular disease. Exposure to social stress in childhood can also have long-term effects, increasing risk for developing diseases later in life. The Adverse Childhood Experiences study ACE, which includes over seventeen thousand adults, also found that there was a 20% increase in likelihood for experiencing heart disease for each kind of chronic familial social stressor experienced in childhood, and this was not due to typical risk factors for heart disease such as demographics, smoking, exercise, adiposity, diabetes, or...

He had patience and he took up my advice—of asking him to learn and practice Crane Chi Gong in a regular class provided by the hospital. The cells in our bodies are continually replicating to replace old or worn-out cells. Our genetic material is stored within chromosomes in each cell, and when the cell replicates, these chromosomes make copies of themselves. In the early 1980’s, scientists discovered telomeres, the protective caps at the ends of chromosomes, and telomerase the enzyme that rebuilds these caps as they wear down. If you were to envision a chromosome as a shoelace, the ends of the shoelace that keep it from fraying would be telomeres, also keeping the chromosome intact. These protective caps and the enzymes that restore them protect the genetic material within the chromosome from mutation during cell replication. Further study found that people under stress had shorter telomeres and less telom...

It was found that those who had the highest myocardial ischemia readings when stressed had the highest increases in blood pressure This suggests there is a direct link between low-level cognitive stress and physiological reactions that lead to cardiovascular damage. This can be seen as unethical to cause distress to patients with CVD, but with the justification for stressing people who have a history of CVD’s is that cognitive stressors were no more than those found in everyday life It might be that the patients with CVDs would show heightened myocardial ischemia and blood pressure when relaxed as well as when moderately stressed. This supports the view that stress is linked to heart disease. 6 Brown and Harris 1978 Found that women who suffered from chronic stress conditions were more likely to develop depression. 7 Brown and Harris 1978 In the Brown and Harris study, a str...

A global synthesis reveals biodiversity loss as a major driver of ecosystem change. Further species loss will accelerate change in ecosystem processes, but it is unclear how these effects compare to the direct effects of other forms of environmental change that are both driving diversity loss and altering ecosystem function. Here we use a suite of meta-analyses of published data to show that the effects of species loss on productivity and decomposition--two processes important in all ecosystems--are of comparable magnitude to the effects of many other global environmental changes. In experiments, intermediate levels of species loss 21-40% reduced plant production by 5-10%, comparable to previously documented effects of ultraviolet radiation and climate warming. At intermediate levels, species loss generally had equal or greater effects on decomposition than did elevated CO 2 and nitrogen addi...

The statistical results show that functional diversity and species composition significantly affected the six response variables to a greater extent than species diversity.

But given the chemical possibilities available from the most abundant elements in the universe, even an alien scientist with a different biochemistry would probably agree that a water-solvent-based biochemistry is quite likely to occur elsewhere in the universe and might well be the most likely foundation for a complex ecosystem in which intelligent life could develop. Based on what we know of life and biochemistry, it seems likely that an alien biochemistry will need a solvent like water and one or more elemental units for its structure and function like carbon. Nonetheless, from the list of potentially abundant solvents in the universe, water looks to be the best candidate to support a complex ecosystem. Water also has the advantages of: having strong hydrogen bonds that gives it a strong surface tension three times that of liquid ammonia which would encourage t...

Climate change and human health Global environmental change Policy Training Projects Media centre Partnerships Resources Publications Links. Ecosystem goods and services for health. Why do ecosystems matter for human health. Ecosystem services are the benefits that people obtain from ecosystems. From the availability of adequate food and water, to disease regulation of vectors, pests, and pathogens, human health and well-being depends on these services and conditions from the natural environment. Human health ultimately depends upon ecosystem products and services such as availability of fresh water, food and fuel sources which are requisite for good human health and productive livelihoods. The types of health effects experienced are determined by the degree to which local population’s depend on ecosystem services, and factors such as poverty which affect vulnerability to changes in elements like access to food and water.

*  Ecological Succession
"Ecological succession" is the observed process of change in the species structure of an ecological community over time. This observed change over time in what is living in a particular ecosystem is "ecological succession". As long as the ecosystem's set of environmental conditions remains constant, those species optimally adapted to those conditions will flourish. The "engine" of succession, the cause of ecosystem change, is the impact of established species have upon their own environments. The rise and the decline of numerous species within our various communities illustrates both of the types of motive forces of succession: the impact of an established species to change a site's environmental conditions, and the impact of large external forces to suddenly alter the environmental nature of a site. The consequence of this hardwood tree growth is the increased shading and subsequent mortality of the sun loving red pines by the shade tolerant hardwood seedlings. The shaded forest floor conditions generated by...

In your own words, explain what an ecosystem is. Be specific. 2 Describe in as much detail as you can what factors determine the type of ecosystem biome found in a given geographic area. 3 Select an ecosystem pond, salt marsh, deciduous forest, old field, etc. and explain a food web that occurs in that ecosystem. Label plants and animals as specifically as possible and indicate the trophic level they occupy. 4 It is intuitively obvious that there are few large predators in an ecosystem; there is even a book about why large, fierce animals are rare. The grizzly bear requires any where from 11 square miles to 1000 square miles of habitat for its home range. The average in the Brooks Range of Alaska where there is minimal human interference is 521 square miles. Range size seems to be at least a factor of richness of food supplies. From your knowledge ...

Overview {{anchor|GPP and NPP}}Gross primary production and net primary production Terrestrial production Oceanic production Light. Primary Production and Plant Biomass for the Earth From R.H. Gross primary production and net primary production. Terrestrial Higher Plant Respiration and Net Primary Production. Net primary production is the rate at which all the plants in an ecosystem produce net useful chemical energy; it is equal to the difference between the rate at which the plants in an ecosystem produce useful chemical energy GPP and the rate at which they use some of that energy during respiration. Net photosynthesis in the water column is determined by the interaction between the photic zone and the mixed layer. When it is much deeper than the photic zone, this results in phytoplankton spending too much time in the dark for net growth to occur. However, as long as the photic zone is deep enough, primary production may continue below the mixed layer where light-limited growth rates mean that nutrients ar...

Biogeochemistry and hydrology focus on several fundamental ecosystem processes such as biologically mediated chemical cycling of nutrients and physical-biological cycling of water. Trophic dynamics. Net primary productivity NPP is the primary measure of biomass accumulation within an ecosystem. Decomposition and nutrient cycling are fundamental to ecosystem biomass production. Decomposition of plant litter accounts for the majority of nutrients recycled through ecosystems Figure 3. Rates of plant litter decomposition are highly dependent on litter quality; high concentration of phenolic compounds, especially lignin, in plant litter has a retarding effect on litter decomposition. "Nitrogen and lignin control of hardwood leaf litter decomposition dynamics". Globally, rates of decomposition are mediated by litter quality and climate.

In 1997 Robert Costanza, Distinguished University Professor of sustainability at Portland State University, Oregon, and colleagues first estimated that ecosystem services worldwide are worth an average $33 trillion annually $44 trillion in today s dollars, nearly twice the global GNP of around $18 trillion $24 trillion in today s dollars. But he adds that some benefits probably came at the expense of natural capital elsewhere in the world, as declines in forest cutting coincided with a rise in imported timber.

(1/297) Evidence-based assessment of coping and stress in pediatric psychology.

OBJECTIVE: To review selected measures of stress and coping in pediatric populations. Stress and coping are presented within a risk and resiliency framework. METHODS: The Society of Pediatric Psychology (SPP) surveyed the membership to identify the most frequently used assessment instruments. Twelve measures of coping and three measures of stress were reviewed. These instruments were evaluated using the Stress and Coping workgroup's modification of the criteria developed by the SPP Assessment Task Force (SPP-ATF). RESULTS: One of the three measures of stress and five of the 12 measures of coping were Well-established measures that broaden understanding. Additionally, one of the coping measures was categorized as a Well-established measure that guides treatment. Merits of the individual measures are discussed. CONCLUSIONS: Recommendations for future research are provided, including suggestions for the construction and use of measures to inform treatment research.  (+info)

What psychological problem can cause a person to constantly lose identity based on movies or television?


We have all experienced the euphoric feeling of coming out of a theater imagining the situation seen to be real and we are part of it. Normally this feeling vanishes in minutes as reality impinges on the consciousness. What kind of psychological problem can prevent a person from recovering reality? For example, coming out of Star Wars imagining one is a Jedi or out of Pirates of the Caribbean imagining one's self to be a pirate?
----------

These psychological boundaries and differentiations, are often developed during childhood, 
distinguishing between reality and fantasy.........
If as an adult one hasnt developed them, it is a sign of several different, difficult 'mental illness'......  the best know is true schizophrenia, or other disorders.........one would have to have it evaluated to know which , what applies........


What are the psychological reasons behind men who fantasize of their wife with other men?


What are the psychological reasons behind men who fantasize of their wife being pleased sexually with other men? Lots of talk on risks of actualizing such fantasies it but I’ve not seen any answers that speak to the psychological reasons.
----------

TO BE HONEST, I DON'T THINK THERE IS ANYTHING PSYCHOLOGICALLY WRONG WITH YOU, IT IS VERY COMMON THAT MEN HAVE THAT FANTASY ALONG WITH THE WIFE WITH ANOTHER WOMAN AND NOW WOMEN ARE ADMITTING THEY HAVE THE SAME FANTASIES TOO. I THINK IT IS NATURAL TO HAVE SUCH THOUGHTS, SOME PEOPLE ARE JUST MORE OPEN TO IT THAN OTHERS AND THEN THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO JUST DON'T ADMIT TO IT. IF YOU ARE HAVING THESE THOUGHTS, I THINK YOU ARE COMPLETELY NORMAL, WE ALL HAVE FANTASIES, SOME JUST GET LUCKY TO BE ABLE TO FULLFILL THEM AND OTHERS HAVE TO JUST THINK ABOUT IT.


What are the mental repercussions/psychological effects of death on children?


I'm writing a paper on euthanasia. One point I make is that it helps end family suffering, and I want to make a comment on the mental repercussions/psychological effects of death in the family to children.

I know that there definitely are, I've witnessed my little brother go from bad to worse in the past six years since my grandfather passed away.

I just need to know if anyone is better at searching the internet for some sites that may have information along these lines?

Thanks in advance!
----------

Death brings up all our questions, and makes us look differently at life.  If you have not spoken to your bro about it all, then you should and get him some help.(therapy and someones to talk to)...dont let him go down hill.
The only resources I know of would be the work of jack kervorkian and kubler-ross,  then google or search  'psychological effects of death on children'  etc.


What are some psychological characteristics of type 1 diabetes?


Hi.
Are there any psychological characters of type 1 diabetes?
So far  I have : Higher risk for eating disorders, depression, and dementia/
What am I missing?
----------

Even though type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease, I guess quality of life could be decreased in some people who have it. A major diagnosis that is going to affect you for the rest of your life frequently causes depression - both at the time of diagnosis and throughout your life due to dealing with the constant monitoring and care that type 1 diabetes requires.
I recently read a nursing journal article that young females with type one diabetes are at higher risk for anorexia nervosa due to the strict adherence of a 'diabetic diet' and it discussed insulin omission with this. 

I haven't heard about the dementia one though - hope you're not right there!


What is the name of the psychological disorder where patients are unable to experience fear of any kind?


I know there is a psychological disorder where patients are unable to experience fear of ANY kind. But, I'm pulling my hair out trying to find any documents on it. I don't know the name, and I would really appreciate any help!
----------

The condition of not being able to express emotion in general is called alexithymia.  I have heard there is a disorder for inability to experience fear, so if you figure it out please tell me.


What are the Psychological Benefits of Weight Training?


Could somebody please tell me what are the psychological benefits of weight training? If somebody could give me some good websites telling me what the benefits are, that would be great. Please help me.
----------

So you want to start weight lifting but don’t know what you’ll get form it. Weight lifting gives you great physical and metal benefit. It provides muscular endurance and muscular strength. The metal benefit to weight lifting is that it keeps you energizes and tones up the muscle which makes your look good giving you confidence. It also give health benefit to like reducing risk of developing osteoporosis, lowers blood pressure, reducing the chance of developing adult onset diabetes, reducing chance of colon cancer and improve your immune system. If this is not enough reason for you to pick up this activity then you just might have to find a new one. So if you want to start getting in shape and improving your health then start weight lifting.


What is your perception of abnormal psychology and psychological disorders?


Also, have you ever come across someone with a psychological disorder? What are your thoughts on that person? 

FYI, im asking because this is happening to someone close to me and i just dont know how to deal with it.
----------

I'm a bit confused by your question. If someone "close" to you has been diagnosed with a psychological disorder, they are going to need you. Some disorders can be maintained quite successfully with medication. Some are dealt with effectively with counselling. Some require combinations of therapies. 

What do you mean "What are your thoughts on that person?" Are you asking if psychological disorders are "real" sickness? Or whether the person should be viewed as "weak" or somehow responsible for the condition? Would you feel the same way about someone who was diagnosed with breast cancer or a brain tumor? A person with a psychological disorder is just as ill, needs just as much compassion and care as anyone diagnosed with a physical illness. There are organizations for family members and support systems for people with mental illness. Perhaps one of these could help you.


What psychological disorders are better treated through cognitive treatments?


I have to write a paper for class, on psychological disorders and use my preferred method of treatment. However, there are so many different psychological disorders and not enough words in my word limit to give detailed examples of treatment. So I was wondering if anyone knew of any specific psychological disorders that really benefited from using cognitive. behavioral treatments?
----------

Anxiety disorders are the ones best and most effectively treated through cognitive behavioral therapy. OCD is good with CBT or ERP.
