(1/702) Experiences of hospital care and treatment seeking for pain from sickle cell disease: qualitative study.

OBJECTIVE: To investigate how sociocultural factors influence management of pain from sickle cell disease by comparing the experiences of those who usually manage their pain at home with those who are more frequently admitted to hospital for management of their pain. DESIGN: Qualitative analysis of semistructured individual interviews and focus group discussions. PARTICIPANTS: 57 participants with genotype SS or S/beta-thal (44 subjects) or SC (9) (4 were unknown). 40 participants took part in focus groups, six took part in both focus groups and interviews, and nine were interviewed only. Participants were allocated to focus groups according to number of hospital admissions for painful crisis management during the previous year, ethnic origin, and sex. RESULTS: The relation between patients with sickle cell disease and hospital services is one of several major non-clinical dimensions shaping experiences of pain management and behaviour for seeking health care. Experiences of hospital care show a range of interrelated themes, which are common to most participants across variables of sex, ethnicity, and hospital attended: mistrust of patients with sickle cell disease; stigmatisation; excessive control (including both over- and undertreatment of pain); and neglect. Individuals respond to the challenge of negotiating care with various strategies. Patients with sickle cell disease who are frequently admitted to hospital may try to develop long term relationships with their carers, may become passive or aggressive in their interactions with health professionals, or may regularly attend different hospitals. Those individuals who usually manage their pain at home express a strong sense of self responsibility for their management of pain and advocate self education, assertiveness, and resistance as strategies towards hospital services. CONCLUSIONS: The current organisation and delivery of management of pain for sickle cell crisis discourage self reliance and encourage hospital dependence. Models of care should recognise the chronic nature of sickle cell disorders and prioritise patients' involvement in their care.  (+info)

(2/702) Public conceptions of mental illness: labels, causes, dangerousness, and social distance.

OBJECTIVES: The authors used nationwide survey data to characterize current public conceptions related to recognition of mental illness and perceived causes, dangerousness, and desired social distance. METHODS: Data were derived from a vignette experiment included in the 1996 General Social Survey. Respondents (n = 1444) were randomly assigned to 1 of 5 vignette conditions. Four vignettes described psychiatric disorders meeting diagnostic criteria, and the fifth depicted a "troubled person" with subclinical problems and worries. RESULTS: Results indicate that the majority of the public identifies schizophrenia (88%) and major depression (69%) as mental illnesses and that most report multicausal explanations combining stressful circumstances with biologic and genetic factors. Results also show, however, that smaller proportions associate alcohol (49%) or drug (44%) abuse with mental illness and that symptoms of mental illness remain strongly connected with public fears about potential violence and with a desire for limited social interaction. CONCLUSIONS: While there is reason for optimism in the public's recognition of mental illness and causal attributions, a strong stereotype of dangerousness and desire for social distance persist. These latter conceptions are likely to negatively affect people with mental illness.  (+info)

(3/702) The public's view of the competence, dangerousness, and need for legal coercion of persons with mental health problems.

OBJECTIVES: The authors examined Americans' opinions about financial and treatment competence of people with mental health problems, potential for harm to self or others, and the use of legal means to force treatment. METHODS: The 1996 General Social Survey provided interview data with a nationally representative sample (n = 1444). Respondents were given a vignette based on diagnostic criteria for schizophrenia, major depression, alcohol dependence, or drug dependence, or a "control" case. RESULTS: The specific nature of the problem was the most important factor shaping public reaction. Respondents viewed those with "troubles," alcohol dependence, or depression as able to make treatment decisions. Most reported that persons with alcohol or drug problems or schizophrenia cannot manage money and are likely to be violent toward others. Respondents indicated a willingness to coerce individuals into treatment. Respondent and other case characteristics rarely affected opinions. CONCLUSIONS: Americans report greater concern with individuals who have drug or alcohol problems than with persons who have other mental health problems. Evaluations of dangerousness and coercion indicate a continuing need for public education.  (+info)

(4/702) Dispelling the stigma of schizophrenia: II. The impact of information on dangerousness.

This study addressed a relatively neglected topic in schizophrenia: identifying methods to reduce stigma directed toward individuals with this disorder. The study investigated whether presentation of information describing the association between violent behavior and schizophrenia could affect subjects' impressions of the dangerousness of both a target person with schizophrenia and individuals with mental illness in general. Subjects with and without previous contact with individuals with a mental illness were administered one of four "information sheets" with varying information about schizophrenia and its association with violent behavior. Subjects then read a brief vignette of a male or female target individual with schizophrenia. Results showed that subjects who reported previous contact with individuals with a mental illness rated the male target individual and individuals with mental illness in general as less dangerous than did subjects without previous contact. Subjects who received information summarizing the prevalence rates of violent behavior among individuals with schizophrenia and other psychiatric disorders (e.g., substance abuse) rated individuals with a mental illness as less dangerous than did subjects who did not receive this information. Implications of the findings for public education are discussed.  (+info)

(5/702) Changing attitudes about schizophrenia.

Research on the effectiveness of short-term education programs in changing societal attitudes about mental illness has been mixed. Education efforts seem to be mediated by characteristics of the program participants. This study determines whether the effects of a specially prepared, semester-long course on severe mental illness are mediated by pre-education knowledge about and contact with severe mental illness. Eighty-three participants who were enrolled in either a course on severe mental illness or general psychology completed the Opinions about Mental Illness Questionnaire before beginning the course and at completion. Research participants also completed a pre-and posttest of knowledge about mental illness and a pretest on their contact with people who have severe mental illness. The education program had positive effects on some attitudes about mental illness. Interestingly, the effects of education group interacted with pre-education knowledge and contact and varied depending on attitude. Participants with more pre-education knowledge and contact were less likely to endorse benevolence attitudes after completing the education program. Participants with more intimate contact showed less improvement in attitudes about social restrictiveness. Implications of these augmentation and ceiling effects are discussed.  (+info)

(6/702) Mental health consumers' experience of stigma.

The extent to which mental health consumers encounter stigma in their daily lives is a matter of substantial importance for their recovery and quality of life. This article summarizes the results of a nationwide survey of 1,301 mental health consumers concerning their experience of stigma and discrimination. Survey results and followup interviews with 100 respondents revealed experience of stigma from a variety of sources, including communities, families, churches, coworkers, and mental health caregivers. The majority of respondents tended to try to conceal their disorders and worried a great deal that others would find out about their psychiatric status and treat them unfavorably. They reported discouragement, hurt, anger, and lowered self-esteem as results of their experiences, and they urged public education as a means for reducing stigma. Some reported that involvement in advocacy and speaking out when stigma and discrimination were encountered helped them to cope with stigma. Limitations to generalization of results include the self-selection, relatively high functioning of participants, and respondent connections to a specific advocacy organization-the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill.  (+info)

(7/702) Effects of the label "schizophrenia" on causal attributions of violence.

We investigated the relation between the label of "schizophrenia" and causal attributions of violence. Undergraduates read 1 of 10 scenarios in which two variables were manipulated: a psychiatric label and environmental stress. The scenario described an employee who acted violently toward his boss. Subjects made causal attributions for the employee's behavior by completing an adapted version of the Causal Dimension Scale II. Subjects also completed a questionnaire designed to explore several issues concerning the effects of the schizophrenia label on perceptions of behavior. Contrary to the primary hypothesis, the schizophrenia label did not lead subjects to make significantly more personality causal attributions for violent behavior. With increasing environmental stress, subjects did make significantly fewer personality attributions. A follow-up study using practicing clinicians as subjects yielded similar findings. The results of these studies are discussed in light of perceived stereotypes of persons with schizophrenia and conceptual issues in attribution research.  (+info)

(8/702) Babes and boobs? analysis of JAMA cover art.

OBJECTIVE: To determine the representation of the sexes in JAMA cover art. DESIGN: Review of 50 consecutive issues. SETTING: JAMA, March 1997-March 1998. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Numbers and nature of covers portraying men and women. RESULTS: Of the 50 covers, 34 depicted humans. 15 depicted women, 13 men, and 6 were of mixed or indeterminate sex. 11 pictures of women included a child and five included nudity. One cover showed a man with a child (not as a father) and none depicted nudity. Men were depicted exclusively in authoritative roles. CONCLUSIONS: Much of the cover art gives strong messages about sexual stereotypes that are inappropriate in modern society. JAMA should consider reviewing its policy for choosing cover art.  (+info)

Do you find the stereotyping of mothers in commercials annoying?

For example, this bottled water commercial I'm sure you've seen. Dad and little boy are sitting on the couching drinking orange soda and watching tv. Mom is in the kitchen (of course) when she notices that the orange soda might not be a healthy choice so when it comes time for the men to demand a refill of their beverage, she brings them water instead of orange soda. 

Is this kind of stereotyping really necessary? This is 2012 not 1950. There were many other ways they could have executed this same concept - maybe instead mom and dad talk together about the child drinking unhealthy soda instead of water.

Very much so!
I'm 21, single and raising my 5 year old niece and no matter what anyone says, I am a mother to that little girl. For the society, though, a "mother" is a married, middle aged woman who spends her time cleaning and cooking. It's annoying as hell...

Where did the stereotype come from that Black people love to eat ribs, fried chicken & watermelon?

It's harmful stereotyping that leads to further segregation of people

I'd be more worried about stereotypes concerning criminal behavior, laziness, and drug abuse.  I really doubt a predespotion to eat a certain food is segregating anyone.

What ridiculous vegetarian stereotypes have you heard?

Hey guys,
I've been vegetarian for a long time. Just wondered if you have heard any stereotypes.

Like the ''skinny pale wimps who protest, who tie their bodies to trees and have long shaggy hair'' one. 

What ridiculous sereotypes have you heard of? 
Hollywood x

The most basic and common one I've heard is that all they eat is vegetables.  I am vegan and dont like veggies and meat eaters are always astonished when they say "I could never be vegetarian, I hate veggies!" and hear I dont like them either.

Ive also heard some hippie stereotypes.  And environmentalist.  The one other vegan girl at my school can be really intense, constantly yelling at people for wearing leather and all, and people sometimes get nervous because they think I'm like that too. 

People also think that Im very sensitive and cant even hear about a pet dying or anything, which is pretty ridiculous.

One that is probably unique to me... for a long time I ate very little until I was nearly anorexic and became very thin, often people thought that it was due to my diet and not my choice to eat only a little.  They would say they felt so bad because I couldnt eat anything sweet or fattening now.  Happily I am over that and eat plenty of good food and sweet stuff, although I do have to make a lot of it myself.  People assume you are totally into being healthy sometimes.. my best friend calls me a "vegan tofu noodle".  :-)

Do you buy into the whole stereotyping culture?

Such as generalizing and preconceived perceptions about other people you know nothing about.
BQ: Do you stereotype yourself?
Foursword193 not everyone stereotypes. This is more common if you live in a rural area, then if you live in a major city. You see the pros and cons of various types of people from vast environements.

Some people just live in deniel about others, so they maintain a perfect view of themselves. Sad but honestly true.

I hate when people stereotype others without knowing them first. Some people should learn the saying 'never judge a book by its cover'. Everyone is different and you should pass remarks about someone you don't know, just because of they way they look, act or dress. Also, I've noticed that a lot of people who stereotype hate it when people do the same thing to them, but they should get out of their bubbles and treat others like they want to be treated.

BQ: Nope, because I know what it feels like to be stereotyped against when nobody knows you. I'm a really shy, quiet and soft-spoken girl andatomicallyy people think I'm stuck-up and posh, when I'm not, I just find it hard to be confident and come out of my shell. I hate it and people shouldn't judge, they should look at their own lives and themselves before theyjudgee. I think people who judge are jealous and pathetic tbh.

Why do adults claim to be mature but then insult and stereotype teenagers?

Does anyone see the irony in claiming to be intelligent and mature while at the same time saying childish insults towards people because of their age or stereotyping people because of their age?
I agree with you, and most of the adults nagging teens are nagging them for the same thing that adults do. Teens and adults generally do the same things, but in different situations. It's pure hypocrisy.

yeah i see it

and no offense

but shutup. because at some time in your life, when you were a teenager, you were just like how you just explained teens. and also wondering why adults criticize teens all the time. so i think adults saying things about teens is kind of hypoctitical. sorry take no offense in this, and im sure ill be just like this as an adult. but im just putting my opinion out there.

Why are negative stereotypes so prevalent in the gay community?

People look at a butch girl and assume she's gay, they look at a feminine man they assume he is gay. But were do these stereotypes come from, and do you follow them?

When I came out to people I was often told "You don't look like a lesbian" and other lesbians are really funny around the way I look. I like being girly. I will happily say I am a lipstick lesbian, but why are people so set in the stereotypes?

I used to get really annoyed by the stereotypes, but if you think about it, they're the only things that feed our gaydars and life without gaydar would be impossible. I find the stereotypes are more true for men than for women though. I can spot a gay man a mile off, but I can't tell a woman's gay no matter how many signals there are. (My wife and I were going out for a good month or so before I realised she was gay.)

Gay men tend to have more feminine brains (not pink and fluffy, but more arts and English orientated), whereas gay women tend to have more masculine brains (we're usually more logical and mathsy). So that's where the stereotypes come from. Also, gay people in general are less likely to give a stuff about gender roles. People who don't conform to typical gender stereotypes as young children tend to gow up to be gay as well.

What are some of the most common stereotypes about anorexia?

I'm working on an art project to illustrate the unhealthy ideal set forth for young girls by Barbie, especially after Mattel downsized her body even further. I plan to do so by creating an "Anorexic Barbie". I'm looking for some ideas on how to present this, especially through all-too-common stereotypes. Thanks!

are you looking for stereotypes on physical appearance alone?  I would say really skinny (obviously haha) but with her ribs and hip bones jutting out, very pronounced cheek bones.  I think that she should also have patchy hair, like it's falling out.  I'm PRETTY sure (you should check though) that anorexic people lose their hair often because are not getting enough nutrients from food.  I don't know what else....sorry.  Maybe trying doing a google image search for people with anorexia to see what they look like, if there is a common thread.  I think it's a great project and a GREAT idea btw, good luck!

Why are there so many stereotypes about cheerleaders?

I'm a cheerleader and I personally hate the bimbo or dumb stereotypes people say about us. But what I don't get is why. Is it because they are just jealous or what?

Well, I'm not a cheerleader, but I would love to be one, the uniforms are so cute ^_^
I don't really know wy people think that all cheerleaders are dumb and stupid. Not everyone's the same and you shouldn't judge everyone with the same brush. Sure, there might be some silly cheerleaders, but not everyone is the same.

The best thing to do is ignore what people think and not to rise above it. Sadly, in life there are always going to be people that pass judgment about others they don't know or have stereotypes about different people, but as long as your true to yourself and you're doing what you love, then that's the best.

Good luck and keep your head up xoxo
