Friends' support can help cancer patients. Friends' support can help cancer patients. Ask questions, but stay positive. Of course, relationships are affected during a disease as devastating as breast cancer, but we have some control over whether this effect is negative or positive. Even though you may not know what to say in a given moment or what to do in a given situation, experts remind us the relationship that counts is with the person, not with the illness. Breast cancer is one of the most commonly found types of cancer. A woman's concept of breast cancer may color all her interactions, making it difficult to relate normally. According to studies, attitude can affect treatment and have real consequences in terms of well-being and survival. Certainly the most important thing anyone can do to support a friend or relative with breast cancer is to be there while she begins to navigate the grueling course of treatment, recovery and ongoing lifestyle adjustments. Each woman's ability to deal with cancer differ...

Online contributes to the diversity of social networks. Some years ago there was interest in the possibility of what was known as ‘cyber-balkanisation’ – the expectation that online activity would create silos of communities of interest at the expense of diversity of networks; and perhaps that local communities based on face-to-face contact might atrophy as a direct consequence. I even wrote an article for the New Statesman about it, it must have been at least ten years ago. Now here ’s research to confirm that social networks are not less diverse when mediated by online, and that online use makes a ‘positive and substantive total contribution’ to network diversity and hence to the social capital that is accessible through personal networks. This is the most recent output from Keith Hampton and his colleagues based on the data collected for the Pew Internet and American Life Project which has grabbed our attention a couple of times in the past, here and here. The argument goes something like this....

Social Network Theory and Physician Prescribing Behavior. March 23rd, 2011. Sources: MIT Technology Rev., WSJ Health Blog Subjects: Providers, Social media. Tweet. Several years ago, scientists led by Harvard’s Nicholas Christakis showed how happiness and obesity can spread through social networks. The team showed for example, that when certain people gained weight, the chances increased that others in their social network would also gain weight. Similar analyses have mapped-out the impact of social networks on influenza outbreaks and cigarette smoking. Now, Christakis has teamed-up with Larry Miller to create MedNetworks, a company that uses the same network mapping methods to identify physicians that most strongly influence their colleagues when it comes to prescribing drugs. If their work proves successful, they will surely find plenty of drug makers who will pay for their insights. The Boston-based start-up relies on medical claims data for its mapping studies. It claims to be able to track growth in t...

Results: Discernible clusters of obese persons body-mass index, 30 were present in the network at all time points, and the clusters extended to three degrees of separation. These clusters did not appear to be solely attributable to the selective formation of social ties among obese persons. A person's cha...

The First Drug that Could Ease Social Withdrawal in Autism By Maia Szalavitz @maiasz Sept. An experimental drug showed promising results in treating the key symptom of social withdrawal in people with Fragile X syndrome, the most common known inherited cause of autism with intellectual disability, according to a recent clinical trial. The new study, published in Science Translational Medicine, hints that arbaclofen could be the first drug to treat symptoms of Fragile X and other autism spectrum disorders, and even other conditions involving social avoidance. In previous studies of mice that are missing the FMR1 gene and show autistic symptoms like repetitive behavior and social avoidance, arbaclofen has been able to treat these problem...

Is the School Required to Provide Social Skills Training. 05/07/12 by Wrightslaw. My daughter with autism needs help with social skills. She gets 90 minutes of social skills counseling a month. I think she needs to learn “hands on” in class, lunch, or recess, not in the “office.”. Is the school required to provide social skills training? Would this be considered a related service.

Topics Arts Humanities Business, Law, Society Campus Community Science Health World Environment Videos Photos Search. Sociability may depend upon brain cells generated in adolescence. Mice become profoundly anti-social when the creation of new brain cells is interrupted in adolescence, a surprising finding that may help researchers understand schizophrenia and other mental disorders, Yale researchers report. The Yale team decided to explore the function of these new brain cells in mice of different ages. However, adult mice that had neurogenesis blocked during adolescence showed no interest in exploring other adult mice and even evaded attempts made by other mice to engage in social behavior. “These mice acted like they did not recognize other mice as mice,” Kaffman said. Blocking adult neurogenesis had no effect on social behavior, suggesting t...

DIY Brainless Robots Exhibit Collective Behavior. By Tessel Renzenbrink on March 19, 2013 Posted in: technology Tags: BristleBots, mechanical intelligence, robots, swarm behavior, swarm intelligence, swarm robotics. We’ve all seen the amazing capabilities of flocks of birds and schools of fish to move seemingly as one. A lot of research is going into figuring out how swarm behavior works in order to mimic nature’s capabilities in swarm robotics. The ability of an individual agent to participate in collective behavior is often linked to cognition and social interaction implying that swarmbots require computational power and a sensor to function. But now scientists of Harvard university have demonstrated that brainless robots self-organize into coherent collective motion. The robots used in the experiment are BristleBots Bbots. These are very simple robots anyone can build for $5 from a toothbrush, a pager motor and a battery. When the brush head is pressed to the ground, the angled bristles give it forwar...

The visualization of spatial social structure means, literally, making visible the geographical patterns to the way our lives have come to be socially organised, seeing the geography in society.

*  Farm Social Groupings
... Social Groupings within farm animals The social behaviour of farm animals is an important aspect of their sentience. Farm animals in natural conditions have quite complex social lives and social conventions. Living in groups requires awareness and understanding of the behaviour of others, and the ability to manage social interactions. Animal behaviour scientists have studied and compared the social lives of farm animals in natural, semi-natural and intensive farming conditions. In spite of thousands of years of domestic use, and decades of intensive breeding and farming, experts agree that the basic behaviour patterns and motivation of farm animals has changed little compared to their wild ancestors. Farmed pigs and chickens can revert to wild behaviour without difficulty. Cattle, pigs, sheep and chickens naturally live in herds or flocks. Many commercial farming methods cause social problems by joining unnaturally large numbers of animals together, changing or splitting up groups and mixing them with ot...

*  The ASMR Experiment: ASMR and social grooming
... The ASMR Experiment. ASMR and social grooming. In previous posts I described a theory of ASMR check out the ASMR theory tag on the right side of this page ; my conclusion is that ASMR is primarly drived by triggers' precision, which leads us to a state of physical and mental stillness : a condition whose importance is often ignored in the West, but widely recognized by traditional cultures. Now it's time to look at a phenomenon which can sometimes lead to ASMR: grooming. Note: linking ASMR to biology may sound strange, as I previously supported a theory which explains this phenomenon in terms of acoustics and brain waves. Social grooming. Grooming is - according to etologists - the way members of some animal species take care of each other, primarly for igienic purposes; in some species, however, grooming becomes an important social activity. The first example is massage; even in this case the ASMR effect is not directly connected to the task, and it only takes place when a massage is "tingle-oriented" b...

Obese adults are admitted to the hospital more frequently and for more days than adults who are normal weight, finds a new study that looks at how being obese leads to a need for more health care services. The study also finds that duration of obesity—how long an adult has been obese—has a direct impact on length of hospitalization. “A somewhat surprising result in our study was the fact that the length of time a person has been obese makes a much bigger impact than how severe the obesity actually is.” The study appears in the December issue of the Journal of Health and Social Behavior, a peer-reviewed scientific publication of the American Sociological Association. On average, obese adults had about 3.22 hospital stays in a 20-year period compared with 2.47 stays for the normal-w...

Thomas Laveist Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Message author. Impact Factor: 1.74. ABSTRACT The effect of extreme social isolation and use of community-based senior services on longevity was examined in a national sample of African American elderly women ages 55-96. Consistent with previous research on the social integration/mortality link, African American elderly women who were extremely socially isolated were hypothesized to have a higher 5-year mortality rate. Use of community senior services did not have a relationship on mortality. Moreover, considering that the previous studies LaVeist et al., 1997 which found that the quality of life and the satisfaction level of life at the old age are related to how much the elderly are socially connected, the issue of social isolation for the elderly does m...

Just within the last few months, we posted an entry about how robots are helping with the developmental growth and teaching of young children.

(1/5627) Awareness of and attitude of elderly subjects regarding health care and welfare in rapidly ageing population in Japan.

OBJECTIVES: We aimed to obtain information on the degree of knowledge and understanding about the current systems of health care and welfare held by the elderly, in order to achieve comprehensiveness in family practice. METHOD: We conducted a study on the awareness of healthy elderly persons by direct interview. The study was carried out in Kuni Village in a remote mountainous region in Japan, where the elderly population accounts for 24.8% of the total population. The subjects were self-dependent in their daily living activities and were aged 65 years and older. RESULTS: The subjects' knowledge of health care and welfare systems was generally good, and the degree of their utilization of these systems was also good. But 83.3% of those who did not want to utilize the welfare system indicated their preference to depend on their family for support. CONCLUSION: Family physicians must endeavour to offer comprehensive care to their patients by including these systems for rapidly ageing communities.  (+info)

(2/5627) Mediators of ethnic-associated differences in infant birth weight.

PURPOSE: To examine whether ethnic differences in low birth weight babies of low-income women may be explained in part by group differences in prenatal health behaviors and psychosocial factors. METHODS: A prospective, survey of 1,071 low-income, primiparous African-American and Mexican-origin women was conducted in Los Angeles County, California. In face-to-face interviews, data were obtained on substance use, prenatal stress, social support, attitudes toward pregnancy, initiation of prenatal care, and medical risk. Medical chart data were abstracted regarding medical risk factors and labor, delivery, and neonatal data. Interview data were linked with birth outcome data retrieved from maternal medical records. Structural equation modeling was used to test a hypothesized model in which differences in birth weight were expected to be mediated by ethnic differences in substance use, psychosocial factors, and medical risk. RESULTS: As expected, African-American women delivered babies of earlier gestational age and lower birth weight than did women of Mexican origin. Direct predictors of low birth weight were use of drugs and cigarettes, prenatal stress, and positive attitudes toward pregnancy; together, these factors accounted for the observed ethnic differences in birth weight. CONCLUSION: These data contribute to our understanding of the factors that may account for ethnic-associated differences in low birth weight.  (+info)

(3/5627) Developing communality: family-centered programs to improve children's health and well-being.

Despite decades of enormous investment in research and public programs, the United States continues to face pandemics of preventable health problems such as low birth weight, teenage pregnancy, drug abuse, and interpersonal violence. With some justification, these problems have been blamed on the failings of families. The reasons why families may function poorly in their child-rearing roles have not been coherently or vigorously addressed by our social policies; sometimes these policies have aggravated the problems. This paper provides background to allow a better understanding of families' role in the social determination of children's health, and argues for programs and policies that assist families through the creation of social supports embedded in communities that are characterized by trust and mutual obligation.  (+info)

(4/5627) Health of the elderly in a community in transition: a survey in Thiruvananthapuram City, Kerala, India.

Results of a survey to assess the health and functional status of the elderly (defined as those who are 60 years or older) in Thiruvananthapuram city, the capital of Kerala state, India, are discussed. As the process of development results in longevity without concomitant economic success, traditional support systems break down. The differences in status of the elderly dependent on gender and socioeconomic class are highlighted. Women are poorer and generally suffer more morbidity than men in old age, even though their death rates are lower. The better-off among the elderly enjoy a quality of life much superior to their poor brethren. Thus, in transitional societies such as Kerala, socioeconomic status and gender play a significant role in determining the quality of life of the elderly, a finding which may have some policy implications.  (+info)

(5/5627) Impact of litigation on senior clinicians: implications for risk management.

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the impact of litigation on consultants and senior registrars and to establish their views on methods of reducing adverse events and litigation. DESIGN: Postal survey. SETTING: Acute hospitals in the North Thames (West) Regional Health Authority. SUBJECTS: 1011 consultants and senior registrars in acute hospitals. MAIN MEASURES: Perceived causes and effects of adverse events; views on methods of reducing litigation and adverse events. RESULTS: 769 (76%) doctors responded. 288 (37%) had been involved in litigation at some point during their career; 213 surgeons (49%) and 75 (23%) doctors in the medical specialties. Anger, distress, and feeling personally attacked were common responses to litigation. Clinicians' views on reducing litigation emphasised the need for change at the clinical level. Supervision of junior staff, workload, and training in communication skills were to the fore. CONCLUSIONS: The high frequency of doctors who have experienced litigation and the emotional responses described indicate that clinicians require support at several levels. At a personal level, support can be offered to clinicians going through the litigation process or after an adverse event. Also, managerial support is needed by offering financial and practical help in correcting the factors that have been consistently identified as producing high risk situations to minimise the possibility of a reoccurrence. Accidents in medicine are, by their very nature, costly in human and financial terms and the root causes must be tackled. Recommendations are made for clinicians and risk management teams.  (+info)

(6/5627) Alzheimer's disease in the United Kingdom: developing patient and carer support strategies to encourage care in the community.

Alzheimer's disease is a growing challenge for care providers and purchasers. With the shift away from the provision of long term institutional care in most developed countries, there is a growing tendency for patients with Alzheimer's disease to be cared for at home. In the United Kingdom, this change of direction contrasts with the policies of the 1980s and 90s which focused more attention on controlling costs than on assessment of the needs of the patient and carer and patient management. In recent years, the resources available for management of Alzheimer's disease have focused on institutional care, coupled with drug treatment to control difficult behaviour as the disease progresses. For these reasons, the current system has led to crisis management rather than preventive support--that is, long term care for a few rather than assistance in the home before the crises occur and institutional care is needed. Despite recent innovations in the care of patients with Alzheimer's disease, the nature of the support that patients and carers receive is poorly defined and sometimes inadequate. As a result of the shift towards care in the community, the informal carer occupies an increasingly central role in the care of these patients and the issue of how the best quality of care may be defined and delivered is an issue which is now ripe for review. The objective of this paper is to redefine the type of support that patients and carers should receive so that the disease can be managed more effectively in the community. The needs of patients with Alzheimer's disease and their carers are many and this should be taken into account in defining the quality and structure of healthcare support. This paper shows how new initiatives, combined with recently available symptomatic drug treatment, can allow patients with Alzheimer's disease to be maintained at home for longer. This will have the dual impact of raising the quality of care for patients and improving the quality of life for their carers. Moreover, maintaining patients in a home environment will tend to limit public and private expenditure on institutional care due to a possible delay in the need for it.  (+info)

(7/5627) Chronic ambulatory outpatients and four-vector management.

Many psychiatrist and other mental healthcare professionals consider the availability of atypical antipsychotic drugs a welcome advance in the treatment of schizophrenia. Atypical agents have show to be effective against both positive and negative symptoms of schizophrenia, and in general, their efficacy makes patients more responsive to rehabilitation efforts. Although drugs are a cornerstone of treatment, optimal management of chronic ambulatory outpatients with schizophrenia also depends of psychosocial and other approaches. Still, noncompliance needs to be addressed as schizophrenia patients often fail to take their medications for a variety of reasons, including undesirable side effects and lack of insight or denial of having a mental disorder. A four-vector model for optimal management of chronic ambulatory outpatients includes the biological, psychological, social, and spiritual domains. Although the resources for providing comprehensive, forward-looking management are not universally available in many areas of the United States, clinicians should always strive for the ideal.  (+info)

(8/5627) Massachusetts Medicaid and the Community Medical Alliance: a new approach to contracting and care delivery for Medicaid-eligible populations with AIDS and severe physical disability.

This paper discusses the origins and experiences of the Community Medical Alliance (CMA), a Boston-based clinical care system that contracts with the Massachusetts Medicaid program on a fully capitated basis to pay for and deliver a comprehensive set of benefits to individuals with advanced AIDS and individuals with severe disability. Since 1992, the program has enrolled 818 individuals with either severe disability, AIDS, mental retardation, or general SSI-qualifying disability. Under a fee-for-service system, these two groups had received fragmented care. The capitated CMA program emphasizes patient education and self-management strategies, social support and mental health services, and a team approach to healthcare delivery that has reoriented care to primary care physicians, homes, and communities.  (+info)


What is the job of a family social worker regarding keeping family support intact for child whose mom died?


Is it their job to remain neutral and keep all family support intact for the child with whom the child has had all their life?  Or is their job to take sides and encourage other family members to withhold or limit the child from any contact with certain family members?  To break strong connections from members of the family with whom the child has developed those bonds with?

And is there any recourse against the social worker who has taken sides and encourages this?

My understanding was this particular "family" social worker was to provide counseling for the child and other family members involved in the child's life prior to and after the mothers death.  To help keep in place family members and their support to help this child through this tragedy.  I have since discovered that this "family" social worker has been advocating to the child's grandmother to limit members contact in helping and supporting this child through this difficult process.  Is that really their job?  Or are they suppose to remain neutral and focus on the childs needs?

Thanks
----------

Their number one priority is to look after the wellbeing of the child regardless of the adults in the child's life.  It really depends on whether there is a reason for this advocating.  If you are the child in question, or you know of one, it may well be that you don't know all the facts or the real reason why the social worker is acting like they are.

It may be the social worker has a good reason to that is not known to you, however if not then yes the social worker is out of line.

If you are against abortion are you in support of social welfare programs to help women parent?


If you are against abortion (or if you are for it you can share your thoughts too) are you for social welfare programs that provide women with adequate childcare, healthcare, education, food, etc? 

If you are against abortion AND against social welfare programs, are you also against birth control, sex education in schools, and free and easy access to condoms and the pill? 

If you are against all three of those above things, what are your ideas on creating solutions for women who have unplanned pregnancies other than adoption?
----------

I have always supported Effective Social Welfare Programs. I don't support banaids or programs that just make it appear something was provided when in reality what was provided wasn't worth the time or effort required to access or use the service.

For Example: A mother gives birth and the baby tests positive for drugs. The way it works for the first offence is that the mother takes the baby home from the hospital with 3 Pee-Test Appointments and a mandatory Group Treatment Session on Thursday Night at 7:00 p.m.

I had 2-babies--and I don't need to have a drug problem to see this as an Unrealistic expectation of a new mother who may have other children and few resources. I could hardly manage my own follow-up and the baby's well baby check up when I became a mother. 

This services seems nice on paper but, is not something that would result in a positive outcome more often then not--especially if the mother does have a drug problem. There could be a million better ways to provide Social Services to a new mother.

The actual problem as I see things is that people seem to think One Thing can fix the problem and believe it always has to do with Funding it... I believe it has to do with something that actually costs Nothing to Provide but would benefit society far more. Rather then Fix it with Money why don't more people talk about Giving a Care about the situation in a Real Way? 

What do you Actually Do to HELP a Young Mother? An Old Man? or The Abused child down the street?

What people need the most right now is someone to Care about them and their ability to be successful. Provide the kind of support that might actually make a difference and offer realistic interventions. I pay my taxes and have no problem seeing them invested in social programs but, I also look for the ways I can actually show someone I care about them and will help where I am able. 

The Mom who goes home with her baby that tested positive for drugs needs a lot of support if she will be able to overcome the problem and keep her baby. Giving her food stamps and 4 appointments the next week is far from what I call Social Support. What about actually helping Her figure out how to make life work in a real way--by showing Care for that mother? Help her get to these appointments, learn to keep her home clean, get up and dressed in the morning---bring her some coffee--show her how to Care for her baby--how to shop, cook and clean...things that moms do, they may not have even had themselves.

~~~and yes, I do these things when I see them happening. And at the End of the Day--who am I to Decide the Life of an Unborn Child? I have tended to try and leave that to the Power that made the fetus tissue kick.


Does anyone do webinars for social support/group therapy?


Does anyone do webinars as social support groups?  It would be way cheaper than gertting people to come into a clinic.  I guess I am thinking of group therapy by webinar?  Think weight loss support groups or a stop smoking intervention.  It should be cheap to implement, yet still allow the advantages of interaction among group members?
----------

I think it is a great idea.  I know that many 12 step organizations run online meetings and they function and help very well.
I also know a Psychotherapist who does online counseling for sexual addictions.  This protects the clients anonymity and helps them to feel safer and be more open.
I knew someone a few years back who did online counseling for women with eating disorders. I have wanted to try and do something like this myself.  
Are you a counselor? If you have the expertise to set up the technical part of a webinar I would love to be a part of it.
I have been a therapist for many years as well as a client.  I have mostly worked with eating disordered adults and trauma survivors.  When I first got on the internet, around 11 years ago, I began looking for this type of thing.  That is how I found the other situations I listed above.  But that is all I have found.

How important is a network of social support after an individual gets out of an alcohol rehab?


I was just wondering if it would make a significant difference to the patient if he had friends after going to rehab. Will this affect his continuance of alcohol sobriety?
----------

Yes. An individual needs friends who are sober, those that will help him steer clear of alcohol. It's always difficult to stay sober when one is constantly faced with temptations. A network of social support will help the patient from falling into relapse. The patient would need people who knows what he's been through and would help him keep up what he has accomplished while undergoing alcohol rehab.


Is it true that those who lack social support are 5x more likely to die early?


How does lack of social support kill people?
----------

I have also heard that people that live alone and are not married also can die younger.  Having no support system can take a toll on our bodies over time.  Prolonged stress can permanently elevate blood pressure.  I hope you have a good support system and are doing OK.  Good Luck.
