Competence skills help deter smoking among inner city adolescents. (1/45)

OBJECTIVE: To test whether higher levels of general competence are linked to more frequent use of refusal assertiveness that is in turn related to less subsequent smoking among inner city adolescents. METHODS: Longitudinal study conducted during three year middle school or junior high school period. A sample of 1459 students attending 22 middle (ages 11-14 years) and junior high (ages 12-15 years) schools in New York City participated. Students completed surveys at baseline, one year follow up, and two year follow up. The students self reported smoking, decision making skills, personal efficacy, and refusal assertiveness. Teams of three to five data collectors administered the questionnaire following a standardised protocol. These data were collected in school during a regular 40 minute class period. RESULTS: Based on the tested structural equation model, decision making and personal efficacy (that is, general competence) predicted higher refusal assertiveness and this greater assertiveness predicted less smoking at the two year follow up. The tested model had a good fit and was parsimonious and consistent with theory. CONCLUSIONS: Adolescent smoking prevention programmes often teach refusal skills in order to help youth resist peer pressure to smoke. The present findings suggest that teaching general competence skills as well may help to reduce smoking because youth with better personal efficacy and decision making skills are better able to implement smoking refusal strategies.  (+info)

Coronary-prone behavior among Japanese men. (2/45)

The Japanese Coronary-prone Behavior Scale (JCBS) is a questionnaire developed by the Eastern Collaborative Group Study (ECGS), a multi-center study of coronary-prone behavior among Japanese men in Japan. From the JCBS, a subscale was extracted consisting of 9 items that were independently associated with the presence of coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients undergoing coronary angiography (CAG). The subscale, named Scale C, represents job-centered lifestyle, social dominance, and suppressed overt type A behavior. To further validate the association of Scale C with CAD among Japanese men, the present study examined if such an association would be observed in a newly sampled population. The JCBS was carried out by 311 men undergoing CAG. The association between Scale C score and the presence of CAD was evaluated with logistic regression analysis that included established coronary risk factors. The Scale C score was significantly higher in subjects with CAD than in those without and stepwise multivariate logistic regression showed that the Scale C score was associated with the presence of CAD independent of age, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, diabetes mellitus, and obesity. These results indicate that the Scale C score is independently associated with the presence of CAD even among a newly sampled population of Japanese men undergoing CAG. Scale C may reflect an important feature of coronary-prone behavior among Japanese men.  (+info)

Decreased risk of alcohol dependence and/or misuse in women with high self-assertiveness and leadership abilities. (3/45)

AIMS: To analyse dimensions of gender identity and its association to psychiatric disorders and alcohol consumption. METHODS: The study was performed in two stages: an initial screening (n = 8335) for alcohol consumption, followed by a structured psychiatric interview (n = 1054). The Masculinity/Femininity-Questionnaire was used as an indicator of gender identity. The final study group included 836 women. RESULTS: Leadership, caring, self-assertiveness and emotionality were dimensions of gender identity found in a factor analysis. Low self-assertiveness, high emotionality and to some extent low leadership were associated with increased odds for having bipolar disorders, severe anxiety disorders and alcohol dependence and misuse. Low self-assertiveness and high emotionality were not only associated with alcohol dependence and misuse, but also with high episodic drinking. CONCLUSIONS: There was an association between some of the dimensions of gender identity and psychiatric disorders and alcohol consumption. Further attention is needed in both clinical work and research.  (+info)

Client narratives: a theoretical perspective. (4/45)

The role of subjective client narratives in health care represents a clinical and therapeutic tool, useful in complementing objective, scientific data. Of particular interest to mental health practitioners is the role narratives play as a therapeutic tool to guide clinical practice. This paper lays a foundation for understanding the importance of narrative in the psychotherapeutic process. It provides a brief overview of narrative theory and methods of structural analysis in order to provide a theoretical approach that can be utilized by nurses to address clients' needs.  (+info)

Developing essential professional skills: a framework for teaching and learning about feedback. (5/45)

BACKGROUND: The ability to give and receive feedback effectively is a key skill for doctors, aids learning between all levels of the medical hierarchy, and provides a basis for reflective practice and life-long learning. How best to teach this skill? DISCUSSION: We suggest that a single "teaching the skill of feedback" session provides superficial and ineffective learning in a medical culture that often uses feedback skills poorly or discourages feedback. Our experience suggests that both the skill and the underlying attitude informing its application must be addressed, and is best done so longitudinally and reiteratively using different forms of feedback delivery. These feedback learning opportunities include written and oral, peer to peer and cross-hierarchy, public and private, thereby addressing different cognitive processes and attitudinal difficulties. SUMMARY: We conclude by asking whether it is possible to build a consensus approach to a framework for teaching and learning feedback skills?  (+info)

A randomised multicentre trial of integrated versus standard treatment for patients with a first episode of psychotic illness. (6/45)

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the effects of integrated treatment for patients with a first episode of psychotic illness. DESIGN: Randomised clinical trial. SETTING: Copenhagen Hospital Corporation and Psychiatric Hospital Aarhus, Denmark. PARTICIPANTS: 547 patients with first episode of schizophrenia spectrum disorder. INTERVENTIONS: Integrated treatment and standard treatment. The integrated treatment lasted for two years and consisted of assertive community treatment with programmes for family involvement and social skills training. Standard treatment offered contact with a community mental health centre. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Psychotic and negative symptoms (each scored from 0 to a maximum of 5) at one and two years' follow-up. RESULTS: At one year's follow-up, psychotic symptoms changed favourably to a mean of 1.09 (standard deviation 1.27) with an estimated mean difference between groups of -0.31 (95% confidence interval -0.55 to -0.07, P = 0.02) in favour of integrated treatment. Negative symptoms changed favourably with an estimated difference between groups of -0.36 (-0.54 to -0.17, P < 0.001) in favour of integrated treatment. At two years' follow-up the estimated mean difference between groups in psychotic symptoms was -0.32 (-0.58 to -0.06, P = 0.02) and in negative symptoms was -0.45 (-0.67 to -0.22, P < 0.001), both in favour of integrated treatment. Patients who received integrated treatment had significantly less comorbid substance misuse, better adherence to treatment, and more satisfaction with treatment. CONCLUSION: Integrated treatment improved clinical outcome and adherence to treatment. The improvement in clinical outcome was consistent at one year and two year follow-ups.  (+info)

The REACT study: randomised evaluation of assertive community treatment in north London. (7/45)

OBJECTIVE: To compare outcomes of care from assertive community treatment teams with care by community mental health teams for people with serious mental illnesses. DESIGN: Non-blind randomised controlled trial. SETTING: Two inner London boroughs. PARTICIPANTS: 251 men and women under the care of adult secondary mental health services with recent high use of inpatient care and difficulties engaging with community services. INTERVENTIONS: Treatment from assertive community treatment team (127 participants) or continuation of care from community mental health team (124 participants). MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Primary outcome was inpatient bed use 18 months after randomisation. Secondary outcomes included symptoms, social function, client satisfaction, and engagement with services. RESULTS: No significant differences were found in inpatient bed use (median difference 1, 95% confidence interval -16 to 38) or in clinical or social outcomes for the two treatment groups. Clients who received care from the assertive community treatment team seemed better engaged (adapted homeless engagement acceptance schedule: difference in means 1.1, 1.0 to 1.9), and those who agreed to be interviewed were more satisfied with services (adapted client satisfaction questionnaire: difference in means 7.14, 0.9 to 13.4). CONCLUSIONS: Community mental health teams are able to support people with serious mental illnesses as effectively as assertive community treatment teams, but assertive community treatment may be better at engaging clients and may lead to greater satisfaction with services.  (+info)

Conduct disorder and antisocial personality disorder in persons with severe psychiatric and substance use disorders. (8/45)

Conduct disorder (CD) and antisocial personality disorder (ASPD) are established risk factors for substance use disorders in both the general population and among persons with schizophrenia and other severe mental illnesses. Among clients with substance use disorders in the general population, CD and ASPD are associated with more severe problems and criminal justice involvement, but little research has examined their correlates in clients with dual disorders. To address this question, we compared the demographic, substance abuse, clinical, homelessness, sexual risk, and criminal justice characteristics of 178 dual disorder clients living in 2 urban areas between 4 groups: No CD/ASPD, CD Only, Adult ASPD Only, and Full ASPD. Clients in the Adult ASPD Only group tended to have the most severe drug abuse severity, the most extensive homelessness, and the most lifetime sexual partners, followed by the Full ASPD group, compared with the other 2 groups. However, clients with Full ASPD had the most criminal justice involvement, especially with respect to violent charges and convictions. The results suggest that a late-onset ASPD subtype may develop in clients with severe mental illness secondary to substance abuse, but that much criminal behavior in clients with dual disorders may be due to the early onset of the full ASPD syndrome in this population and not the effects of substance use disorders.  (+info)

Clearly the concept and practice of assertiveness has a long history stretching back many centuries. Further, just as we apply the knowledge of modern science to the healing arts, so too can we apply the findings of behavioral science to help us better understand how to properly apply assertive responses.. In recent years assertiveness has garnered much attention in psychological science. The National Institute of Mental Health (2006) records that assertiveness training has been applied to a variety of problems including: depression, eating disorders, employment-labor-management problems, family issues, marital dysfunction, sexual communication, social dysfunction, and substance abuse issues. Assertiveness is a skill that can be acquired to communicate a necessary view or feeling in order to bring about a favorable psychological or spiritual result. This definition has two qualifications: 1) The assertive utterance should be socially acceptable; and 2) only when a minimal response fails to bring ...

I saw an article this week on The Wall Street Journal online that literally made my blood boil. I saw the headline and I swear my blood pressure rose immediately. The article boldly proclaimed, "How An Introvert Can Be Happier: Act Like An Extrovert.". Gasp.. Clinch fists. Take a breath.. I almost lost my marbles.. Then….I decided to read it. I understood from a marketing standpoint, the title could have been there to simply draw people in to read, so I waited to have a full-on freak out session.. I didnt end up having a freak-out session, but I did read the whole article. I remained a little disgusted with the premise of it throughout, to be honest. And if I may be so bold as to say - I strongly disagreed with what theyre calling "research." Id like to see the data, the controls, the variables and everything that was involved in them publishing it.. From that article, the author quoted the infamous Susan Cain (who I hope to have on here soon for our Expressive Introvert series):. [quote ...
A nice lady who sat beside me on a plane narrated her life after learning that Im a practicing psychiatrist.. "I cant say no. Thats my problem for years. Im now 68 years old and I still try to please everyone except myself. I feel guilty if I say no. I should have seen a psychiatrist earlier in my life.". Honestly, I feel bad for her. She says "yes" to everyone except to herself. Shes too busy pleasing everyone and has suffered from it. Because she cant say "no," people have taken advantage of her. Since she cant decide for herself, someone has to decide for her.. What is assertiveness?. Assertiveness is saying what you want in a polite way, without hurting anyone. To get a clear understanding of what it is, Ill also tell you what it is not. Asserting oneself is not being passive or being aggressive.. On one hand, being passive is a state of inaction and indecision, letting others run ones life despite hurt feelings. A typical example is a person who cant say "no" to the demands of ...

Despite studies showing a link between disordered eating and involvement in appearance-related sports few studies have examined the effectiveness of interventions designed to reduce disordered eating among female athletes. Canadian researchers looked at the effectiveness of a programme called Body Sense in 62 female gymnasts between the ages of 11 and 18. The Body Sense programme addresses: eating attitudes and beliefs, accurate information about body health, unique body size and shape, resisting pressures to diet, physical activity for enjoyment, helping an athlete feel good about herself, assertiveness, stress management, role models and promoting a balance between sport participation and life outside sport. Participation in the programme resulted in athletes perceiving a reduction in pressure from their sports clubs to be thin although no changes were found in body esteem, the girls perceptions of societys attitude to thinness or the girls parents ideas about thinness and dieting ...
The phrase "mental illness" covers a huge variety of conditions. In general, however, people usually mean some kind of anxiety or mood disorder. Social anxiety, for example, is very common and often makes work hard to find. General anxiety, OCD and depression are other common disorders. Often, these sorts of problems are made much worse by having to work for someone. Others find an office environment unbearable, mainly because they have no choice about who they work with. For someone with social anxiety or low level depression, rude or obnoxious colleagues can make life unbearable. Indeed, that is true for people who suffer no mental health problems at all.. Thankfully, the digital revolution has created all sorts of new opportunities. In particular, it has made it easier to work for yourself. Those who do so often find their confidence and assertiveness improves. For example, if someone with social anxiety were to work in McDonalds theyd probably find the noise and pressure unbearable. And yet ...

Ultimately, our success in life and in any endeavor will be solely determined by how well we influence other people. Our ideas will never see the light of day if we cant persuade others why its such a great idea. Excellent influencing skills require a healthy combination of interpersonal, communication, presentation, and assertiveness techniques. But, there is no right way, nor is there only one way to influence others. Everything is a factor when influencing people. Dale Carnegies "How to Win Friends and Influence People" gives an incredible insight into human behavior. If youve never read this classic book I ...
Evaluations of interventions to improve communication with patients with advanced cancer have focused on impacting patient or doctor behaviours separately or the shared health communication environment. Few have targeted or involved caregivers or family. Patient interventions have generally focused on providing tools, such as QPLs, or training to increase assertiveness in meeting communication needs. QPLs are evidence-based lists of questions grouped into themes, which patients and/or caregivers are encouraged to ask their clinician. QPLs are often valued for showing the range of topics for discussion, assisting with question formulation and highlighting clinicians willingness to discuss all subjects.28-30. Our group evaluated the impact of giving patients a QPL in the first, second or third palliative care consultation in an RCT.29 Compared with controls, patients and caregivers who received a QPL asked twice as many questions, particularly about prognosis and EOL issues, provided the doctor ...

Peoples Political Consultative Conference, while serving mainly to endorse CPC policies. There have been some moves toward political liberalization, in that open contested elections are now held at the village and town levels, and that legislatures have shown some assertiveness from time to time; however, the Party retains effective control over governmental appointments. This is because, in the absence of meaningful opposition, the CPC wins by default in most electorates. The CPC has been enforcing its rule by clamping down on political dissidents while simultaneously attempting to reduce dissent by improving the economy and allowing public expression of personal grievances so long as they are not organized. Current political concerns in China include lessening the growing gap between rich and poor, and fighting corruption within the government leadership. The support that the Communist Party of China has among the Chinese population in general is unclear because there are no consistently ...
Common behavioural problems seen in children. Temper tantrums: A temper tantrum is an emotional outburst that is typically characterised by stubbornness, crying, screaming, yelling, shrieking, defiance, angry ranting, resistance to attempts at pacification, and in some cases, violence. Temper tantrums to some degree are seen in almost all children between the ages of 1.5 to four years. They actually signify development of assertiveness and independence in the child. If tackled properly, they automatically decrease with age. Sometimes they are severe and need evaluation.. Sleep problems: Children need at least nine hours of sleep every night. The requirement is higher in younger children. Young children may commonly have difficulty in initiating or maintaining sleep. Adolescents in particular are prone to sleep deprivation as they watch television or work on computer till late night. Lack of sleep leads to secondary problems like irritability, aggression, poor concentration and memory, and can ...

I have a different take on it from a single mans perspective. What Im about to say goes across color lines, age groups, different socio-economic groups, nationalities, races and so-on and so-on. From what Ive seen and experienced is that I consistently see single women giving and showing more love, attention, interest, time, conversation, kindness and/or displaying a go and get him girl assertiveness to the guy that THEY KNOW (NOT NOT KNOW) BUT THE GUY THEY DO KNOW IS NOT SINGLE OVER THE GUY WHO THEY KNOW IS SINGLE. I see more of a open arms approach stance that the women take toward these men while at the same time they are giving the single man the middle finger or the old talk to the hand routine. I am sorry but me being a single man I have got passed over many times by single women who had found the non-single man more appealing. If I go to the dance club (Im not really a going out to bars person since I dont drink, Id rather dance) and ask a lady if shed like to dance she is usually ...
Talking about this opened my throat chakra. Ive been feeling a blockage there for a while, a horrible constriction, and getting throat and mouth infections. After writing this I was in a sort of calm rage for a couple of hours. An assertive anger. As I felt my throat opening, like a ball of light (which is how it feels right now - F*&king great! About time you stupid neck!). There had been a huge storm raging at the same time as my own rage (good ole Sky - were good mates these days) and as it cleared there was a beautiful Sky a can barely describe. I was looking at it in Awe and noticed a shape in the cloud with my Third Eye. A white circle of energy. As I looked at it the whole cluster of clouds it was in went blue. Then the blueness moved into the circle and it became this incredible, circle of swirling blue energy. I was wondering what it was and it hit me - blue --, throat, circle --, chakra. Ah, my throat chakras opened. It seems that assertiveness (to the point of near-anger) against ...
RH: It is not good enough to be talented. There are a lot more things you have to cope with. He is able to become a big athlete, but there is a big shadow he has to walk through first, which is a pity for him. Everybody compares his life with mine and that is nerving for him - I think it blocks his power. Who is the more competitive person, you or your brother? RH: Actually, Im more competitive in athletics, for sure. At the computer (games), he is. Will your brother ever be able to beat you at discus? RH: With his body, yes. With his head, no. I have strong assertiveness. You were a former multi-eventer, what time do you think you could run for the 100m today? RH: The first 30m would not be a problem but then I would need an oxygen tent. I dont know. Perhaps 12.5. Do you still have an interest in the decathlon today? RH: No, not that much. I am always annoyed by the theory that decathletes are able to do every event in athletics.

Ron! Ditto here. I prefer the latter. I like my leader to be encouraging and cheering me in my work. But, one caveat exists. A leader must be mature enough to use the right blend of both the options. When the situation needs, he must be able to exercise the assertiveness and get the work delivered. I have seen some people abusing the gentle nature of their supervisors. I would like to use the analogy of father here. I expect that the father must be friendly and be supportive of their kids. But, there will be times when he must be fatherly and discipline his child. Too much of pampering may spoil the child in the end. Same applies to the workplace relationship too. ...

It is sometimes difficult to get research efforts noticed unless you beat others over the head. Alas, many good efforts go unnoticed in a researchers lifetime because they fear any aggressive or assertiveness on their part may lead to a backlash of condemnatory reprisals whether they are deserving of such or not. They are fearful of being boastful in case they, metaphorically speaking, must don a sidearm and meet a competitor in the middle of a public street for a showdown. Some people are skilled in shooting down others proposals and suggestions, as if in doing so, they consider themselves to be more knowledgable than another. Like an adolescent who builds themselves up by knocking someone or something down... when it takes greater courage and strength to assist a fledgling idea, whether or not it turns out to have any value... in its current or another form. Such people know that their efforts may all that is needed to encourage the enthusiastic efforts of a researcher seeking truth, because ...
The other day I had occasion to look up the spelling of the word "gumption." I found myself typing this word without any concrete memory of ever having seen it in print before. It was a word that came to me from my mother, who not surprisingly, had plenty of it. But it also occurred to me that I was finally of an age myself where using that word instead of a more hip, happening synonym like "assertiveness," or "shrewdness." I was using my parental dialect. In a very similar vein, I was reminding myself in the midst of all the trouble and strife surrounding public education lately not to get my dobber down. After a few hours of this phrase running through my head, I felt compelled to call my mother and ask her what the etymology of that particular phrase was. She told me that a dobber was used in fishing, and that it probably meant that you shouldnt let your float sink. If this phrase was meant to cheer one along, it seemed like a salient point was missing: if your dobber does happen to go down, ...
Jenna was recently hospitalized (briefly, fortunately), and I told her doctor that I couldnt tell him how to write orders for the pump, just write that I could give her whatever doses I thought necessary. He wasnt too pleased at first, but since he didnt know what else to do, thats exactly what he wrote. Worked out fine, I just told the nurses what Id bolused so that they had something to write down to make it look official. Also checked all her sugars on her own glucometer, told the nurses what they were, and they wrote them down on her MAR (the medical record thingee). Assertiveness paid off....

What an article. What a conclusion. Chinas assertiveness? I am sick and tired of seeing China being accused of being assertive over and over again. You read about China being assertive every single day these days on western media. What is Nick Miller expecting China to do differently? Should China simply give up what she believes is hers, to appease the neighbors? Should China sit there and do nothing? I seriously wonder, what do our American and western "friends" want China to do these days? What can China do to make you happy? Surrender? "self-perpetuating fear that enemies from all sides are encircling it" Who is Nick Miller kidding? Does he think people are fools to buy into what Dempsey was saying? It is generally referred to as "diplomatic nicety", or "diplomatic bullshit" as I call it. Of course the US is reinforcing its presence in the West Pacific region to contain China, of course the US is enlisting help from Chinas neighbors (granted, the position China is taking is indeed driving ...

That firm should be placed in the broader and more permanent context of the "peaceful rise" policy that Beijing has announced. Three years after this studies was published, based on the acts of China in the East Sea and the East China Sea in recent two years, the above arguments should be rewritten: the exaggeration of the media only reflects part of a plan "to become hegemony" of China.

Downloadable (with restrictions)! This paper examines learning in interdisciplinary action teams. Research on team effectiveness has focused primarily on single-discipline teams engaged in routine production tasks and, less often, on interdisciplinary teams engaged in discussion and management rather than action. The resulting models do not explain differences in learning in interdisciplinary action teams. Members of these teams must coordinate action in uncertain, fast-paced situations, and the extent to which they are comfortable speaking up with observations, questions, and concerns may critically influence team outcomes. To explore what leaders of action teams do to promote speaking up and other proactive coordination behaviours - as well as how organizational context may affect these team processes and outcomes - I analysed qualitative and quantitative data from 16 operating room teams learning to use a new technology for cardiac surgery. Team leader coaching, ease of speaking up, and boundary
Speaking up is important for patient safety, but often, health care professionals hesitate to voice concerns. Understanding the influencing factors can help to improve speaking-up behaviour and team communication. This review focused on health care professionals speaking-up behaviour for patient safety and aimed at (1) assessing the effectiveness of speaking up, (2) evaluating the effectiveness of speaking-up training, (3) identifying the factors influencing speaking-up behaviour, and (4) developing a model for speaking-up behaviour. Five databases (PubMed, MEDLINE, CINAHL, Web of Science, and the Cochrane Library) were searched for English articles describing health care professionals speaking-up behaviour as well as those evaluating the relationship between speaking up and patient safety. Influencing factors were identified and then integrated into a model of voicing behaviour. In total, 26 studies were identified in 27 articles. Some indicated that hesitancy to speak up can be an important

OBJECTIVE: This study examined the relationship between violence and substance abuse among patients with chronic mental illness living in the community. METHODS: All referrals over a one-year period to an urban assertive community treatment team were evaluated systematically with a standardized intake protocol. Thirty-seven patients with a history of violence in the community were compared with 27 patients without such a history on a variety of clinical and demographic variables. RESULTS: More than half of the patients (58 percent) had a history of violence in the community. The only significant differences between those with a history of violence and those without involved alcohol or drug use. The single best predictor of violence was the onset of alcohol or drug abuse in late childhood or early adolescence. CONCLUSIONS: In this sample, very early onset of substance abuse among people who developed mental illness was associated with the greatest risk of community violence. Thus at least some of the
As a non-clinician sociologist I am not licensed to provide direct clinical care, but I have had a significant impact on clinical care provision and planning at the CMHC and at additional Community Service Network (CSN) agencies. From 1993-2000 I was Project Director of CMHCs mental health outreach team to people who are homeless. The team integrated street-based clinical care with vocational, housing, and medical care from local social service agency partners. I was Principal Investigator of the 2000-2002 DMHAS-funded statewide Peer Engagement Specialist Study for engaging persons at risk of violence against self or others into treatment (with the CMHC Assertive Community Treatment Team as one of four study sites). In this capacity I also coordinated training for Peer Specialists prior to their deployment. Building on my citizenship research and practice, I am a leader in the new field of research and training on "forensic peer support" for persons with mental illness and criminal charges. In ...

Health care professionals are expected to speak up about their concerns before a critical event reaches a patient to provide a chance to correct the plan or intervention. There have been some studies investigating the relationship between the speaking-up behaviour of health care professionals and patient safety outcomes. They indicate that hesitancy to speak up can be an important contributing factor in communication errors and/or adverse events [18-20]. Most medical and nursing professionals, irrespective of their position and specialty, have some experience of hesitating in voicing their concerns over patient safety risks, even when they are aware of the hazards and immorality of not speaking up [5, 27, 33-35, 38-40]. These studies indicate that, if health care professionals voice their concerns, it may provide the opportunity to recover from errors and avoid adverse consequences, even if there are some biases (e.g. people were likely doing what they were doing because they thought they were ...

Thank you for saying this. I am the mother of a chronically ill child (8 year old who had a heart transplant at 5 months old) and I am privileged enough to have a government job (I work for a state university and have very good health insurance). I have stayed in my job long past the point where it is a good income decision, but changing jobs terrifies me because of losing our health insurance. I am also terrified for my daughters future. What happens to her when she ages out of our health care and cant get her own? What if she needs another transplant? What if she needs other things (she has had multiple surgeries, a pacemaker placed, etc.)? The way this debate is framed makes me sad that our fellow humans feel such disregard for those of us who suffer with health issues in our families or in our own bodies. So, thank you for speaking up. Please continue to do so!. ReplyDelete ...
Actor Deepika Padukone breaks the silence and stigma around depression sharing, for the first time on TV, her battle against the ailment. In this exclusive chat with NDTVs Barkha Dutt, Deepika Padukone, along with her mother, counsellor and doctor, speaks up to help others struggling with depression. Her aim - if I can impact one life in this entire process of speaking up and letting people know that its something I have been through and something that I could deal with because I had a fantas
The year after, Began taking classes online. Sometimes it is amazing, but when I was taking classes on the internet, Simply put i had more interaction with my professors and class mates. If I sent an email to my professors, would likely get in order to me often within each day. You know the saying, There work just like stupid some questions? Well, I always felt like my questions were stupid and I could never just how in front of 200 other students in a lecture hall. But, using my computer, I can go ahead and make sure you ask. Chatting with classmates on the web or on the phone is a lot more pleasant for me, I have not problem speaking up. In fact, I came across it so much easier to communicate using my computer that Ive proceeded to stay and complete a four-year program on the internet. Its like almost all the time.. Yeah, school is hard. Yes, it takes a lot power and effort and persistence .. The coursework is hard and happen to be responsible for your own success. There will be long hours ...

TRUE DAT! The real problem is that there are so few of us who are actually speaking up and saying anything...you see how many people have read the postings in these threads and then you see how many people have actually commented. To Beckett this must look like it is the collectors who do not care. If everyone did care there would be huge outrage and comment after comment written complaining about this problem. Ive gone all the way back in this section and others and can really only find a handful of people who voice their opinions on this subject. Its sad but true, the majority of collectors dont seem to care much. As long as the population report is working thats all that most care about. Even so, there are enough of us that care about the registry part and want a better one. That ought to be enough to get it done, especially when it really wont cost them much money to do it. I wish more people would speak up and voice their dislike...then it would get done ...
A group of anesthesiologists say the public hospital has failed to address major patient safety problems — and has retaliated against doctors for speaking up.
When females started speaking up about little things like equal pay for equal work in the 1970s, their male counterparts disparagingly referred to them as "womens libbers" in the same tone of voice theyd used to describe a Communist or a puppy killer. Virginia Slims capitalized on the Womens Liberation movement with their "Youve come a long way, baby" campaign, although they had the concept a bit skewed-women are equal to men, but they need special slender cigarettes to fit between their dainty fingers.. ...
Something to consider with illness, of any kind, or a chronic condition is, what is shadow? How does shadow relate to conditions. For example, recently I had a hard time speaking up, and didnt want to hurt anyones feelings, and was writing a letter to 2 people involved. But then found the courage, having prayed, to flow words that expressed love, dignity and disappointment, and was well spoken, but firm. And that was the only day I had good mobility suddenly, something shifted. I felt it and knew that it was related to my inability to speak up well, and needing to be as conscious a communicator as I can in all situations, even ones that took courage, but still taking care of everyones core being and well being as much as possible ...

I cant believe that weve started this year as bad as we ended last year. Start with the Butler County commissioners. They had to raise the real estate tax. I dont care how much it was; it was too much. We had a hard time paying the tax at its previous level. All of us werent born with a silver spoon in our mouth. Its time for the voters to clean house. All of the commissioners should go. Their spending makes me sick. The county doesnt need a new building. There is plenty of potential office space vacant in and around the city. Why cant we get some good people running the county government like we had in the past? We never had a mess like the one we have now. When spending decisions are made, county government fails to consider other expenses of the people that continue to rise - such as utility bills and medical insurance costs. I wont say things cant get any worse; the commissioners and their group have proved that it can. Its time for the people to start speaking up about whats ...

The results of our first (last) ever attempt at polling are in and they are very much predictable. But regardless of popular opinion, its worth considering the views of those not speaking up.

The field of Leadership Development began over a half-century ago, led by the philanthropic institutions in the United States, such as Coro Foundation and W.K. Kellogg Foundation. More recently, in the past ten years, there has been a strong focus on supporting the development of effective grassroots leaders through community leadership development programs. As participants have graduated from these programs, a critical mass of grassroots leaders have begun to make an even stronger impact in addressing systematic social change in their communities. While there is significant literature on different theories and models in the Leadership Development field regarding the structural and programmatic issues in leadership development programs, there is a minimal amount of information about the experiences of participants after graduation. The goal of conducting this study was to contribute new, in-depth knowledge about how to support graduates of community leadership development programs after the completion

Despite many Chinese diplomatic assurances to the contrary, Chinese assertiveness in the South China Sea is an attempt to re-establish traditional Chinese hegemony in the region. Chinas strategy is taking concrete actions to solidify its claims in the South China Sea, and Chinese officials have underscored such perception.. China has asserted its claims for the South China Seas rich mineral, oil and fishing grounds by increasing patrols and escorts for its fishing fleets. The ships excursions regularly raise regional tensions. ASEAN foreign ministers meeting in Brunei in April 2013 agreed to pursue dialogue with China on a Code of Conduct in the South China Sea. ASEAN wants a legally binding agreement to discourage such aggressive moves. It would replace a ten-year pledge by the claimants not to cause conflict, known as the Declaration of Conduct.. In February 2014 the United States for the first time explicitly rejected the U-shaped, nine-dash line that China uses to assert sovereignty over ...
Not exactly the start you expect from a book with the words Blood and Mixed Martial Arts in the subtitle, but thats Merlinos point. This is a book about the world of cage fighting, which is exactly what it sounds like - a brutal form of combat for entertainment that takes place in the confines of a cage - but really, it is the story of men and women in and around the world of cage fighting, how they came to be there, and of their extraordinary drive and sacrifice in the face of pain and humiliation. One was a refugee of a war torn home, another a veteran of American war, for another it seemed like the only chance to rise from poverty. Aside from a brief history of the rise of the martial arts in the U.S., Merlino surrounds his hard-edged portraits with a narrative that is concerned with answering the question - why should we care. It is here that his book has the most to offer the naive reader. The thrust of Beast is the idea of the cage as a forum for assertiveness and rage, emotions, ...
I have tried each flavor once so far. All of the flavors are mild, subtle tastes - no assertiveness here. Although I am a bit of a sugar junkie, I also like sour, tangy flavors. So my favorites so far are Tri-Berry and Lemon+Lime. Citrus Fruit is also good, but Im not at all sure about Kona Cola. Its possible that Im far too conditioned to carbonated and heavily sweetened cola drinks. I thought that Kona Cola tasted kind of like a cola soda that had been left alone too long with ice melting into it. There is a mildly sweet taste to the drinks, which I suspect is provided by sorbitol, a naturally-occurring sugar alcohol. Nuun says sorbitol is a necessary ingredient "to help it work as a tablet but its at really low levels." Sorbitol is the second ingredient listed; however there are less than three calories per serving (remember one tab makes two servings) so it would seem the levels are low ...
However, program components that address certain key competencies, such as managing change, exhibiting agility and developing global strategies, were cited in the report as areas that need improvement.. "The lack of mastery is the big thing, and we have a long way to go in terms of that mastery," Edwards said. "We have identified the right competencies. We just need to get better at them.". High-performing multinational and global companies offer global leadership development opportunities to a broader segment of their workforce as opposed to limiting such training to high-potential employees. Theyre more than twice as likely as low-performing companies to include "any manager who expresses interest in global leadership development" in their program.. In addition, senior executives are becoming more directly involved in their organizations global leadership development programs, notably regarding business needs and communicating how the program relates to the business goals. Such involvement ...

We must carefully distinguish between the narcissistic traits of adolescents - narcissism is an integral part of their healthy personal development - and the full-fledge disorder.

These inevitably involve narcissistic assertiveness which is not to be conflated or confused with Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD ...
Individuals with mild intellectual disabilities (MID) or borderline intellectual functioning (BIF) and mental health problems or challenging behavior are difficult to reach by mainstream healthcare facilities and support organizations and frequently avoid the care they need. To improve the care for this client group in the Netherlands, the (Flexible) Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) model - originally developed for people with severe mental illness - was adapted and implemented by five organizations specialized in the care for people with MID/BIF and mental health problems or challenging behavior. After an introduction of the original ACT model and a description of the international state of the art of ACT for people with (M)ID/BIF, this paper describes the (Flexible) ACT-MID/BIF model as developed and implemented in the Netherlands. Professionals and clients experiences with this new type of care are reported as well. Implications for clinical practice, policy and research are discussed ...

Professional development activities related to each of these foundational programs are facilitated through a learning community model..

The UCLA T32 Dentist-Scientist and Oral Health-Scientist Training Program builds upon the considerable training experience, outstanding applicant pool, and superb faculty mentors that exist at the UCLA School of Dentistry. The T32 grant has been ...
The study is a prospective, comparative, longitudinal study with an intervention period of a minimum of two years and a registration of data at baseline and 1, 2 and 5 years after inclusion. Three sub-cohorts with different treatment modalities were designed:. Treatment1: 119 patients were, in addition to TaU, offered SPP, i.e. a scheduled manualised supportive individual psychotherapy (1 session of 45 min. per week, for a period of 1-3 years) and/or group psychotherapy (1 session of 60 min. per week for a period of 1-3 years). Anti-psychotic medication was given in doses based on individual needs; Treatment 2: 139 patients were offered IT, i.e. a scheduled, two-year long programme consisting of assertive community treatment, psycho-educational multi-family treatment (a.m. McFarlane, consisting of 4-6 families including the patients, meeting 1½ hour every second week for 1½ year), social skills training (concerning medication, self-management, coping with symptoms, conversational skills, ...

Background: Homelessness, substance use, and co-occurring psychiatric disorders form a mutually perpetuating, downwardly spiraling triad that maintains a state of homelessness, increases morbidity and mortality and thereby escalates health care utilization and costs. Addiction treatment is one portal of health care entry accessed by many Veterans with this devastating triad, yet addiction treatment fails to address homelessness directly. Homeless Veterans entering addiction treatment have worse treatment outcomes and incur more costs than housed Veterans entering such treatment. Further, many homeless Veterans never obtain housing after treatment entry and substantial proportion of those who do may subsequently return to homelessness. Assertive community treatment / intensive case management shows promise in improving housing status, as well as substance use and mental health outcomes in this population. Life Skills Training, which has been shown to improve the likelihood of maintaining housing, ...
