Perhaps the most significant change in Spanish social values however, had embraced a code of moral values that established stringent standards of sexual conduct for women but not for men ; restricted the opportunities for professional careers for women, but honored their role as wives, and most importantly mothers; and prohibited divorce, contraception, and abortion, but permitted prostitution. One significant indicator was the changing place of women in the work force. By the late 1970s, however, 22 percent of the country's adult women, still somewhat fewer than in Italy and in Ireland, had entered the work force. By 1984 this figure had increased to 33 percent, a level not significantly different from Italy or the Netherlands.

We must ask ourselves how to build an indestructible three-legged stool. Reagan s stool had one weak leg that has always haunted the Party: social values. Values debates are pie fights that result in little more than Republicans wiping pie off their faces. Here are four examples pointing to the necessity of building an indestructible three-legged stool, with the third leg made of appealing socioeconomic policy.

*  What hospital patients want | VOX, CEPR’s Policy Portal
This column summarises recent research showing that patients value amenities and more productive hospitals compete for patients by supplying higher quality. Do the social benefits of better care and amenities at hospitals exceed the social costs. Do hospitals offer better care or amenities in order to compete for patients. There is substantial concern that the quality of American health care is deficient IOM, 2001. From an economic perspective, quality is deficient only if the benefits to society of higher quality exceed the costs. Some hospitals may be able to supply high-quality care or amenities at relatively low cost. The patient perspective on hospital quality is then revealed by the choices that patients make. We assess the importance of amenities by comparing revealed quality to the quality of care at hospitals. We also analyze choice based on quality of care, as measured by hospitals’ pneumonia mortality rates. Because revealed quality potentially embodies amenities as well as quality of care, we asse...

... In contrast, the Swadeshi thought relies on the social institutional order, besides Market and State, as the socioeconomic delivery system. This makes the Market and the State share the public space with family, community and society. Besides it warns the Market and State that go against the social institutional order of causing economic uncertainty thus making the social institutional order as the back bone for any order. 'Religion' - Balancing the family, Society and the Individual: The Western notion of individual freedom, which fragments and compartmentalizes family, economy, culture and social values, is not acceptable to the Swadeshi approach. 'The Role of the Market': The Western notion of a global market does not fit into the Swadeshi approach.

He ended up brute forcing an unlock code to access the device, but not before taking some careful steps along the way. From the design and placement the hardware was most likely a key logger and after some searching around the Internet and his colleagues ordered what they thought was the same model of device. They wanted one to test with before taking on the actual target. The logger doesn’t enumerate when plugged in. Instead it acts as a pass-through, keeping track of the keystrokes but also listening for a three-key unlock code. wrote a program for the Teensy microcontroller which would brute force all of the combinations.

I believe that America's children were positively affected by hearing a non-denominational prayer each morning in school, and adversely affected by the removal of all prayer from school. I believe that bilingual education does not work, that for the sake of immigrant children and for the sake of the larger society, immersion in the language of the country, meaning English in America, is mandatory.

mission-woman. Connecting Women's Voices to Transform Our World. Home mission-woman. mission-woman. As a Woman with a Mission and a Vision, I make my contributions on the earth as a professional writer, public speaker, and a home business expert and trainer. I believe the internet is now taking centre stage in being a primary driver of a global economy and women need to be actively involved in working with and maximising the opportunitities on the internet. To support that belief, I work with women who have an interest in creating a successful online business, directly through business opportunities that I train on, and indirectly by offering free articles to help them make intelligent choices when shopping online for an income opportunity. I welcome women who do not have a large capital base as most women in the world often are and those who do not even have a capital base at all. I work with a mission; to amplify the voice of women as the foundational value givers of the society. Not to be foundational valu...

Insufficient Research and Community Consultation. The rapid growth of the coal seam gas CSG industry — despite broad public opposition and proven risks — is bringing the gap between policy and public will into stark relief. The mounting evidence about risks from CSG mining; A lack of peer reviewed research into the impacts of CSG mining in an Australian context; and Insufficient community consultation. As campaigns around the country raise awareness about CSG and approvals, the gap between policy and public will is increasingly clear. Further, in May 2011, the NSW minister Duncan Gay told parliament: “The government provides a number of attractive incentives to encourage exploration, development and utilisation of the coal seam gas industry in New South Wales.”. Development can also require state environmental approval. However since 2005 this could be approved under Part 3A of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act, under which the Minister for Planning could deem development to be of ‘state signi...

... If you are having trouble viewing this email, click here. July 8, 2009. by Jennifer Lahl. My Sister's Keeper, Jodi Picoult's 2004 novel, just came out on the big screen. Joining other films that address bioethical issues such as Gattaca, Million Dollar Baby and The Island, My Sister's Keeper takes on a real-life issue commonly known as "savior sibling." A "savior sibling" refers to the creation of a genetically matched human being, in order to be the savior of a sick child in need of a donor. This requires creating human embryos in vitro using the egg from the mother and the sperm from the father. Then, using pre-implantation technology, the embryos are tested, and the one deemed genetically compatible is implanted into the mother's womb in order for the embryo to grow and develop. Once that baby is delivered, the cord blood is often collected because it provides a perfect match for the sick sibling. Later on, as shown in My Sister's Keeper, bone marrow, blood, or even organs, can also be taken and used ...

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. Here’s an easy to read description about social skills. Social skill is not a “service” but a functional skill necessary for daily living activities.

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...

*  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...

« Wegstock 2011. Face Blindness ». Adult Well Being and Social Connection Posted by The Situationist Staff on August 5, 2012. From Springer :. Positive social relationships in childhood and adolescence are key to adult well-being, according to Associate Professor Craig Olsson from Deakin University and the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute in Australia, and his colleagues. In contrast, academic achievement appears to have little effect on adult well-being. The exploratory work, looking at the child and adolescent origins of well-being in adulthood, is published online in Springer’s Journal of Happiness Studies. We know very little about how aspects of childhood and adolescent development, such as academic and social-emotional function, affect adult well-being – defined here as a combination of a sense of coherence, positive coping strategies, social engagement and self-perceived strengths. Olsson and team analysed data for 804 people followed up for 32 years, who participated in the Dunedin Multidisciplin...

(1/851) Excess capacity: markets regulation, and values.

OBJECTIVE: To examine the conceptual bases for the conflicting views of excess capacity in healthcare markets and their application in the context of today's turbulent environment. STUDY SETTING: The policy and research literature of the past three decades. STUDY DESIGN: The theoretical perspectives of alternative economic schools of thought are used to support different policy positions with regard to excess capacity. Changes in these policy positions over time are linked to changes in the economic and political environment of the period. The social values implied by this history are articulated. DATA COLLECTION: Standard library search procedures are used to identify relevant literature. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Alternative policy views of excess capacity in healthcare markets rely on differing theoretical foundations. Changes in the context in which policy decisions are made over time affect the dominant theoretical framework and, therefore, the dominant policy view of excess capacity. CONCLUSIONS: In the 1990s, multiple perspectives of optimal capacity still exist. However, our evolving history suggests a set of persistent values that should guide future policy in this area.  (+info)

(2/851) Food insecurity: consequences for the household and broader social implications.

A conceptual framework showing the household and social implications of food insecurity was elicited from a qualitative and quantitative study of 98 households from a heterogeneous low income population of Quebec city and rural surroundings; the study was designed to increase understanding of the experience of food insecurity in order to contribute to its prevention. According to the respondents' description, the experience of food insecurity is characterized by two categories of manifestations, i.e., the core characteristics of the phenomenon and a related set of actions and reactions by the household. This second category of manifestations is considered here as a first level of consequences of food insecurity. These consequences at the household level often interact with the larger environment to which the household belongs. On a chronic basis, the resulting interactions have certain implications that are tentatively labeled "social implications" in this paper. Their examination suggests that important aspects of human development depend on food security. It also raises questions concerning the nature of socially acceptable practices of food acquisition and food management, and how such acceptability can be assessed. Guidelines to that effect are proposed. Findings underline the relevance and urgency of working toward the realization of the right to food.  (+info)

(3/851) Do case studies mislead about the nature of reality?

This paper attempts a partial, critical look at the construction and use of case studies in ethics education. It argues that the authors and users of case studies are often insufficiently aware of the literary nature of these artefacts: this may lead to some confusion between fiction and reality. Issues of the nature of the genre, the fictional, story-constructing aspect of case studies, the nature of authorship, and the purposes and uses of case studies as "texts" are outlined and discussed. The paper concludes with some critical questions that can be applied to the construction and use of case studies in the light of the foregoing analysis.  (+info)

(4/851) Do studies of the nature of cases mislead about the reality of cases? A response to Pattison et al.

This article questions whether many are misled by current case studies. Three broad types of style of case study are described. A stark style, based on medical case studies, a fictionalised style in reaction, and a personal statement made in discussion groups by an original protagonist. Only the second type fits Pattison's category. Language remains an important issue, but to be examined as the case is lived in discussion rather than as a potentially reductionist study of the case as text.  (+info)

(5/851) How physician executives and clinicians perceive ethical issues in Saudi Arabian hospitals.

OBJECTIVES: To compare the perceptions of physician executives and clinicians regarding ethical issues in Saudi Arabian hospitals and the attributes that might lead to the existence of these ethical issues. DESIGN: Self-completion questionnaire administered from February to July 1997. SETTING: Different health regions in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. PARTICIPANTS: Random sample of 457 physicians (317 clinicians and 140 physician executives) from several hospitals in various regions across the kingdom. RESULTS: There were statistically significant differences in the perceptions of physician executives and clinicians regarding the existence of various ethical issues in their hospitals. The vast majority of physician executives did not perceive that seven of the eight issues addressed by the study were ethical concerns in their hospitals. However, the majority of the clinicians perceived that six of the same eight issues were ethical considerations in their hospitals. Statistically significant differences in the perceptions of physician executives and clinicians were observed in only three out of eight attributes that might possibly lead to the existence of ethical issues. The most significant attribute that was perceived to result in ethical issues was that of hospitals having a multinational staff. CONCLUSION: The study calls for the formulation of a code of ethics that will address specifically the physicians who work in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. As a more immediate initiative, it is recommended that seminars and workshops be conducted to provide physicians with an opportunity to discuss the ethical dilemmas they face in their medical practice.  (+info)

(6/851) Health outcomes and managed care: discussing the hidden issues.

Too often the debate over health outcomes and managed care has glossed over a series of complex social, political, and ethical issues. Exciting advances in outcomes research have raised hopes for logical medical reform. However, science alone will not optimize our patients' health, since value judgements are necessary and integral parts of attempts to improve health outcomes within managed care organizations. Therefore, to form healthcare policy that is both fair and efficient, we must examine the fundamental values and ethical concerns that are imbedded in our efforts to shape care. We must openly discuss the hidden issues including: (1) trade-offs between standardization of care and provider-patient autonomy; (2) effects of financial incentives on physicians' professionalism; (3) opportunity costs inherent in the design of insurance plans; (4) responsibilities of managed care plans for the health of the public; (5) judicious and valid uses of data systems; and (6) the politics of uncertainty.  (+info)

(7/851) Appropriate and necessary healthcare: new language for a new era.

Conceptual and language changes are necessary to accompany the paradigm shift from fee-for-service medicine to managed care. Medical necessity is an inadequate and ambiguous term defined differently by providers, payers, patients, and legislators. The attempt by legislators in Minnesota to develop a universal standard benefits set for healthcare services strikingly underscores the need to define relevant terminology to accompany the transition to managed care. We suggest the term appropriate and necessary healthcare as a state-of-the-art term for the new era of managed care.  (+info)

(8/851) Sustainability of health care: a framework for analysis.

This paper introduces a conceptual framework which can be used to study the sustainability of health services in developing countries. A health service is considered sustainable when operated by an organizational system with the long-term ability to mobilize and allocate sufficient resources for activities that meet individual or public health needs. The framework includes three clusters: (1) contextual factors, which outline the task and general environment of the services; (2) an activity profile, which describes the services delivered and the activities carried out to deliver them; and (3) organizational capacity, which shows the carrying ability (capability) of the organization in broad terms. In this framework, health care provision is seen as an open system model where five main factors determine how inputs are converted to outputs, linking them through feedback loops. These factors are aims, technology, structure, culture and process. The framework has proven useful in analyzing factors critical to sustainability, and in describing structures and processes both in basic public services and in private not-for-profit services. It should also be tested on more complex systems, such as national health care.  (+info)


Critically discuss and evaluate the role of social work in challenging negative attitude towards mental health?


‘Since the mid-20th century there has been an explicit acknowledgement that mental illness can be treated and managed, and the deputy placed on society to provide such treatment is a direct reflection of social values and the rights-based approach. Despite these developments there remains a significant negative attitude towards mental health in some sectors of society, and this must be acknowledged and continue to be challenged’. Bogg, D (2010 p. 139)
----------

If you're studing psych and S.W., then expect to get a vast number of opinions many of which are not based on any research.  That is were I have always drawn the line between just another opinion or an actual science study. 

I've been in mental health for over 30 yrs. and I have not encountered "significant negative attitute toward mental health."  I worked in-pt, out-pt., in hospitals, nursing homes, offices, schools, prisions, and in hospice. So, I would question the author to produce any study that identifies such attitude, such society or sector. 

There is an old attitude that people with mental health problems are less able to be comptent at certain things, but this focus is on the person not "mental health" as a whole.


How do i get over extreme insecurity and levels of self esteem?


im almost 25 years old and live with my parents. I only make 9.0 and hour even though i have been with the same grocery store for 7 years. I really dont take care of myself, and my self worth is so low. Im tired of this. I cannnot complete simple tasks. I feel so inmature, what do i do? I hate being such a burden on my parents.
 
I dont have any friends because, and im constanly unsatified because I try to be like other people. I know if were to be myself that people will loose interest in me. I have developed OCD trying to act like other people.
 
I think some people are just born with high funtioning levels and some are not, and its hard to deal with this.
 
some people are just born with low social value
----------

You may be depressed now, but you will feel better later. If you are taking any meds right now, talk to your doctor about getting off of them. Many drugs work well at first, but make you worse over time.

Find some hobbies. And try to make some friends the same gender as you! A lot of times people are just as insecure on the inside as you are, and they would be happy to know someone just as "bad" or even "worse" than them.

Hey, would you want to have a friend thats JUST as good at everything you do, or even BETTER?? No, you would like someone who has different skills, and is good at things you aren't, and you are better than them in other areas. That way you can help each other.

Low "social value" can sometimes mean that you can make someone else feel better about themselves, and then they will make you feel better about yourself by being nice and taking you out for a drink and such!

It'll get better, just keep a stiff upper lip and don't try so hard!

What Factors influence Health care in the United States Today?


I know what the are I just need a description of each:
*Economy



*Social Values


*Laws of Supply and Demand


*Technological Advances
----------

I take it this is a homework assignment =)  I will give you first hand knowledge of one or two:

Economy:  Many people cannot afford to pay for health insurance.  Many jobs are not able to offer full benefits to employees with the economy as it is.   The cost of health insurance is extremely high, especially for a family of three (2 parents and a child) or more. Ex. MVP charges a little over $400 for a good plan for ONE person and the cost of a family plan is around $1200 a month!  
In addition, many doctors are having problems sustaining a practice as insurance companies are paying 10% LESS than they did last year.  Medicare sets the rate at which the majority of health insurance companies reimburse doctors, therefore all doctors are working more than they were last year to make the same amount, yet they are spending more on overhead! 
Lastly, insurance companies can make their own rules as to what they will and will not cover.  They can deny whatever they want. There was a huge victory in 1998 with the approval of an act stating that insurance companies who had women with breast cancer had to pay for the removal and complete reconstruction...even if there was only cancer on one side.  You can read the whole Act at www.plasticsurgery.org.  Basically, there was a social movement to help those in need to get coverage.    

I can go on and on about healthcare in the US. There are many flaws that most people do not know unless they are in the medical field.


How common is depression in adopted children - as adults?


I have a couple friends who were adopted as children. 

But one especially has dealt  with depression for years.  He seems to bounce from counselor to counselor.  

He's been on Prozac for years, but has tried going off of it, only to find he really needed it.

He told me he hates his adoptiive mother, who's now old and dying. He must be conflicted, because he does go visit her. He told me he does know who his birth parents were, and where his birth father lives but wouldn't try to meet him because he wouldn't want to deal with still more rejection.

He'll create situations to alienate his friends.  It's as if it were a test to see who will stick with him in spite of his being obnoxious at times.  Never married.  Seems to pick relationships that have some "impossible" element from the start, whether distance, social background, values... whatever.

Is this the "norm" for those who were adopted as children? 

What can his friends do to help without losing their own sanity?
As satisfying as it may be to have someone to blame, it's not really useful.  I would really like to know what positive steps my friend, and those of us who are his friends, can take to help him be less sad, if not actually happy.
OMG calyx156! You are my hero!  You have given me so much insight, this is incredibly helpful!  (So of course, to reward you, I accidentally thumbs-downed you, duh)
(and I have to wait four hours to pick a best answer...)

That parental/child bond is more important than any other bond, especially the mother/child bond, and when it's broken or absent, awful things occur.  I have a friend who adopted a sister and brother from the same family.  She went into this w/ the best of intentions, to love and to give as much as possible to both of these children until the day she died, to make difference in their lives.  She had to put her daughter into foster care when she was 15, I think it was, in an attempt to get this child the professional help she needed.  Her daughter chronically and pathologically lied (and lied seriously, as in alleging that she was being abused by my friend, Mary Jane, to teachers and police).  She stole, ran away from home, willfully damaged other people's property, took drugs, drank from a very young age, shop-lifted, and became pregnant at 17 (while in foster care).  She also made the lives of her foster parents and foster siblings MISERABLE.  She has an almost uncanny level of what I see as criminal ability to manipulate people, even intelligent people, that borders upon the sociopathic.  And yet I also really like aspects of her.  For most people, having a baby at 17 is a disaster, both for the baby and the MOM.  This, however, seems to be working out.  I have never seen her work harder, be more reliable, be more respectful of her mother or brother, or other humans, or mature as rapidly and as profoundly as she has in the last year.  Her brother is only a little better, but not much, and seems to be getting worse as he ages.  He is at least able to hold a job two days a week where they love him.  None of us who know him really knows why or how they love him so much (We think it's b/c they don't have to live w/ him), but we're not questioning it.  "If it ain't broke, don't fix it..."  Both of these children came from a home where mom was a 16yo stripper, prostitute, alcoholic and drug addict and dad was an 19yo drug addict and thief.  I believe that the boy suffers from an undiagnosed case of fetal alcohol syndrome and has an organic brain injury.  No one is really sure what the girl's problems originate from, but I really, really see Reactive Attachment Disorder going on w/ her.  Their adoptive mother is one of the very sweetest, most loving, dear women I have ever known.  In no way is their behaviour about their adoptive mom that I can see, other than the fact that a lot of women try to be their kids "friends" rather than their parent.  I also see this exact same problem set w/ children in single parent families as this one is, and if she erred, it was on the side of loving them too much and being too nice.  Much of their behaviour tho', came to Mary Jane, with them and seems to me to be "inbred, and set up from the start".  

And so my answer to you, is YES! this can very much be the norm w/ adopted children.  It's kinda like the secret that no one talks about.

As far as what you can do, as his friends, I would say the following:  Tough love.  Don't let him get away w/ any of his BS.  Hold him accountable for every single thing he says, and every single thing he does.  Accountability is the single most important thing in the life of an adult, and it's hard for that to develop when the adult child's very first experience w/ "adult accountability", namely that he or she would not be abandoned or mistreated, didn't happen.  It can take lifetimes to work this sh*t out.  Show him that you won't except bad dog behaviour, but that that refusal to accept his crap does NOT mean that you all will abandon him.  Show it, and SAY it to him, all day, every day.  In many ways you will have to reparent him as he reparents himself.  And here's another clue.  He PROFOUNDLY does NOT hate his adoptive mother, no matter what he says.  He would NOT go to visit her if he hated her.  It's just an issue that she is the only person he feels safe enough to express his hatred and pain at mothers and women in general to and about.  He quite literally has buckets and buckets of unworked out stuff and cannot find a way to make his peace with it or with the people involved yet.  People like this need to be loved, perhaps more than any other kind of people.  More hatred, disgust, abandonment, things not "working out", or happening at all are the last things they need.  He will need really strong friends in you all.  Be that for him, but never coddle him, lie to him, or allow him to get away w/ shite that no one else in the adult world would ever be allowed to get away with.  That's all I can tell you.  Blessings.


What is the general process for social workers to diagnose and to prescribe meds?


I am working with a social worker and instead of helping make a diagnosis, he gave me a list of things to somehow help me. Most of which ive tried and they have failed. I just want to know is it part of the process? And no Im not a pill head. I just know myself better than he does.
Ok i forgot they can't prescribe meds. They have to refer a psychiatrist.

A social worker cannot "diagnose" unless he/she is a licensed clinical social worker.    And a licensed clinical social worker cannot prescribe medications.  Of course you know yourself better than any one else does.  

I think it is important to remember with anything when looking at professionals, that some professionals are more experienced in working with clients than others.  It is just like looking for a doctor......not all doctors are the same.  Just like not all social workers are the same.  It would be important for you to let your social worker know the next time you see him that the list of things have not helped you and what other interventions is he aware of that may help your particular situation.

As a side note, if you have not had an annual physician with a medical doctor who has performed labs, to include a complete blood count (CBC) then I highly recommend that you go get a physical.  Some physical health problems can actually play a role in mental health issues or mimic mental health issues.


How has social stratification influenced the quest to determine Pellagra's underlying dietary cause?


(Social stratification is the hierarchical separation of a population into various groups, generally based on income, race, educational achievement, or family background. Some strata are “upper”; others are “lower.”)

Are you a minority? Sounds kinda like a case of social B.S. The cure is usually watch less T.V. Study hard,stay open eared and closed mouthed ,smile at your opponents, Is Pellagra's a who or an it? dietary cause? WTF?  Hope your brain don't explode,poindexter.
