Commentary: the public health consequences of restricted induced abortion--lessons from Romania. (1/17)

The question of whether abortion should be legal is currently being decided in many countries. Although much of the discussion has focused on ethical issues, the public health consequences should not be overlooked and should be addressed realistically and responsibly. Nowhere are the public health manifestations of restricted abortion more apparent than in Romania. The pronatalist policies of the Ceaucescu regime resulted in the highest maternal mortality rate in Europe (approximately 150 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births) and in thousands of unwanted children in institutions.  (+info)

Contextual predictors of mental health service use among children open to child welfare. (2/17)

BACKGROUND: Children involved with child welfare systems are at high risk for emotional and behavioral problems. Many children with identified mental health problems do not receive care, especially ethnic/minority children. OBJECTIVE: To examine how patterns of specialty mental health service use among children involved with child welfare vary as a function of the degree of coordination between local child welfare and mental health agencies. DESIGN: Specialty mental health service use for 1 year after contact with child welfare was examined in a nationally representative cohort of children aged 2 to 14 years. Predictors of service use were modeled at the child/family and agency/county levels. Child- and agency-level data were collected between October 15, 1999, and April 30, 2001. SETTING: Ninety-seven US counties. PARTICIPANTS: A total of 2823 child welfare cases (multiple informants) from the National Survey of Child and Adolescent Well-being and agency-level key informants from the participating counties. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Specialty mental health service use during the year after contact with the child welfare system. RESULTS: Only 28.3% of children received specialty mental health services during the year, although 42.4% had clinical-level Child Behavior Checklist scores. Out-of-home placement, age, and race/ethnicity were strong predictors of service use rates, even after controlling for Child Behavior Checklist scores. Increased coordination between local child welfare and mental health agencies was associated with stronger relationships between Child Behavior Checklist scores and service use and decreased differences in rates of service use between white and African American children. CONCLUSIONS: Younger children and those remaining in their homes could benefit from increased specialty mental health services. They have disproportionately low rates of service use, despite high levels of need. Increases in interagency coordination may lead to more efficient allocation of service resources to children with the greatest need and to decreased racial/ethnic disparities.  (+info)

Neonaticide, newborn abandonment, and denial of pregnancy--newborn victimisation associated with unwanted motherhood. (3/17)

We report two cases of newborn death and two cases of near-miss newborn death. One neonate was strangled to death after delivery in the hospital and one died from lethal congenital malformations. The third was found on the verge of death after being abandoned in a dumpster. The fourth was rescued from the toilet bowl by the mother's boyfriend while the mother was in a state of panic. In the three cases where the infants' maternal identities were known, the women were all primiparous and aged 22, 13, and 17 years. The paternity was extramarital, incestuous, and concealed, respectively. Denial or concealment of pregnancy was present in all cases, but none of the women had any overt psychiatric manifestations at the time of delivery. Neonaticide and newborn abandonment are closely associated with denial of pregnancy, and are serious forms of childhood victimisation. Their occurrence in Hong Kong is poorly understood and no representative figures are available. A concerted effort among the health care, social work, and judicial professionals is needed to define the scope of the problem and devise preventive measures.  (+info)

Crimes and misdemeanours: the case of child abandonment. (4/17)

In 2002, a child was abandoned in a Burger King restaurant in Amsterdam by a Chinese woman, who hoped that the baby would be picked up by someone able to give the child a better life. She was convicted for child abandonment and imprisoned. Whereas some forms of child abandonment are criminalised, others are socially accepted and not even on the ethics agenda. This paper is an invitation to reflect on the inconsistency in the ways in which we prosecute, punish or try to correct some forms of child abandonment and yet make allowances for others.  (+info)

Cognitive recovery in socially deprived young children: the Bucharest Early Intervention Project. (5/17)

In a randomized controlled trial, we compared abandoned children reared in institutions to abandoned children placed in institutions but then moved to foster care. Young children living in institutions were randomly assigned to continued institutional care or to placement in foster care, and their cognitive development was tracked through 54 months of age. The cognitive outcome of children who remained in the institution was markedly below that of never-institutionalized children and children taken out of the institution and placed into foster care. The improved cognitive outcomes we observed at 42 and 54 months were most marked for the youngest children placed in foster care. These results point to the negative sequelae of early institutionalization, suggest a possible sensitive period in cognitive development, and underscore the advantages of family placements for young abandoned children.  (+info)

A comparison of the wellbeing of orphans and abandoned children ages 6-12 in institutional and community-based care settings in 5 less wealthy nations. (8/17)


With my Los Nefilim series, I have two individuals who were abandoned at very early ages: Diago and his son, Rafael. Diago suffered tremendous abuse, and still deals with the fallout from his early childhood. Rafael, meanwhile, was abandoned at an earlier age and lived in an orphanage before Diago discovers him.. I didnt need to research the effects of abandonment on either Diago or Rafael-personal experience was already under my belt. I did do some research into how to mitigate the effects of abandonment on children. By looking at the problems and solutions that the adoptive parents of Russian orphans placed in American homes experienced, I was able to see tactics that failed miserably and others who experienced success.. Apparently, in some cases, the adoptive parents werent prepared for the emotional issues of their children. They expected love and discipline would be enough. One example that remained with me was that of a young Russian boy who had been adopted by an affluent family. The ...

The Ospedale degli Innocenti was a charity institution that was responsible for the welfare of abandoned children. It represented social and humanistic views of Florence during the early Renaissance. It can also explain how investors used Florences charitable institutions as savings banks: A relationship between charity and Italian city-states can be depicted by using the Innocenti as a case study. Furthermore, the hospital remains as a significant place with a statement of compassion and care besides its unpleasant downfalls. The Innocenti was responsible for the care of abandoned children and provided them with the ability to rejoin society. The first infant abandoned was on February 5, 1445, ten days after opening.[3] Babies were received, wet nursed and weaned. Masters were hired to teach reading and writing to boys. Boys were taught skills according to their abilities. Girls were considered to be the weaker sex, fragile and most vulnerable. They were sent to mistresses who taught them how ...
If you have an existing health condition, even if it is well-managed, we recommend you ask your doctor whether or not they are happy for you to travel. This is because the extreme heat, humidity and dust can often exacerbate conditions.. Volunteers must be aware that they will be required to sit on the floor with their legs crossed for long periods of time - this is a cultural practice. Volunteers must also be able to cope with heavy lifting. If you suffer from joint problems, mobility problems or bone problems, you must seriously consider whether or not this is the right placement for you.. We strongly recommend that volunteers take out travel insurance with good medical coverage. There are several excellent private international hospitals nearby in Bangkok, but they are very expensive! Travel insurance will help with this. We recommend that volunteers only use these private hospitals if they need medical care. ...
Eva Massies, once a daughter of a noble family, now lives in a house of acquaintances as a maid. She met him for the first time when her life was at rock bottom. Her handsome, strong, and dazzling former fiancée, Crown Prince Edward.... more>>. Why are you crying, hm?. Edward asked worriedly as he took her hurt foot.. …Its embarrassing. Hic-. Perhaps it was because of how affectionate his voice was. A voice that had been suppressed all this time brazenly slipped out. To top it off, being soaked wet in water, wearing a pair of worn-out, patched socks, hitting rock bottom, all of these were shameful.. Are you feeling ashamed because youre hurt? Your foot is still beautiful even like this.. He said those words like it wasnt something to be concerned about.. Theres no need to be ashamed. For whatever reason, you did nothing wrong, Eva.. He soothed her fear by calling her name. Only when hed left did she realize. That man who stayed only for a moment, that man who would be deeply ...

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this study was to examine qualities of caregiver-child interactions during daily activities of healthy children born full-term and of children born prematurely and very low birth weight with and without white matter disorder.. METHOD. Three groups of 12 caregiver-child dyads, representing three levels of child biological risk, were matched on birth history, maternal education, ethnicity, and child gender. Ten expert clinicians used videotapes to rate behaviors of caregivers and their 30-month-old children engaging in dressing and snack activities. Correlations between ratings of three qualities were examined: caregiver directiveness, caregiver engagement, and child engagement.. RESULTS. There were no significant differences between groups for the average caregiver and child ratings. However, correlations between caregiver directiveness and caregiver engagement ranged across the three groups from greatest to least biological risk (i.e., r = .63, .35, -.67, respectively). ...
The Spafford Childrens Center was founded by American woman Bertha Spafford Vester in 1925. Bertha and her sister Grace came with their parents to Jerusalem from Chicago at a young age after their family suffered tragic losses.. Berthas parents had started a handicraft school for girls. In 1925 they started a Baby Home for abandoned children that later became a 60-bed childrens hospital. At this time it was the only childrens hospital in the Old City of Jerusalem and served all of East Jerusalem and the West Bank.. Bertha continued the philanthropic work of her parents and their American Colony in the Old City.. In 1967, when Israel occupied the West Bank and East Jerusalem it was decided that the needs of the local people could best be served by focusing on preventive medicine. The hospital was renamed the Spafford Childrens Center, and operated as an outpatient medical clinic for sick children, an ante-natal clinic and an infant welfare department to monitor healthy babies for ...

Our Africa Circle of Hope(ACOHF) Community Health Team is returning to Mathare after more than a year. These five dedicated women are led by Dr. Katrina, who helped to establish our first health team three years ago. The participants are medical, education and business professionals from Illinois, California and Florida. Their goal this year is to complete a health assessment of more than 200 orphaned and abandoned children, from babies only a few months old to teenagers, in the Good Samaritan Children`s Home in the Mathare slums of Nairobi. The ACOHF team is assisted by nursing students, including Gladys, an ACOHF scholarship student at Regina Pacis University College completing her Community Health degree.. The 2016 ACOHF team members-- Katrina, Simone, Joanie, Kellee, and Kristin-- are competent, caring and professional as they assess each individual. Many of the children are shy and avoid eye contact. Others come and show one of the members of our health workers a hand, arm or leg that is ...
Sensible kids know that some of the scariest stories come in the form of fairy tales. In the original Brothers Grimm story, Hansel and Gretel are abandoned by their starving parents in the woods where they encounter a cannibalistic witch who fattens them up with cakes and sweets. This South Korean adaptation recasts the children as the villains of the story, making them the cake suppliers who dispose of unwary strangers unlucky enough to chance upon their home in the forest. Cannibalism only gets a slight (visual) mention in this modern retelling, in the form of a dubious, bloody joint of meat in the over-stocked fridge, but the other memorable elements of the story - the house full of cakes, the abandoned children and the impenetrable woods you cannot escape - survive intact. Creepy children are a safe bet for horror movies, as are crash victims who foolishly wander away from their wrecked cars instead of waiting for emergency services. These two horror staples have been over-used, and combined ...
My four year old son Max from three feet away looked directly into my eyes, then down to my mouth, then back to my eyes.. Daddy, why arent you talking?. Right in the middle of playing, my mind drifted to this book, and I was staring out the window.. The intent of his question was more along the lines of: Where did you go? We were connected and playing. What happened?. Children are generally born with an innate ability to read and mirror facial emotions. I couldnt have taught him to do that if I wanted to. Somehow, this programming is buried away in our DNA. Empathy makes us happy. Its not simply play my son lives for, its shared experience and discovery. Abandoned children who are fed, kept warm, and left alone without human interaction have a tendency to die of natural causes. Unlike values, which are learned, we are born to empathize. When allowed to flourish empathy can even lead to love. And, like so many other gifts of our universe, weve taken empathy for granted.. We teach children ...
Public health looks into activities which ensure that public health is maintained and that health of members of the public is not affected in any way. This country faces a number of interesting and difficult environmental issues as well as public health problems (Australians suffer from some of the worlds highest rates of mesothelioma - read on); those who pursue degree programs in this country have an excellent opportunity to see these problems up close, as well as how they are being addressed.. Public health online degrees are actually easy to handle, the difficult part is the internship. Like say for instance a temporary shelter for the homeless, care for the abandoned children, and other stuffs related to public service. There are also advance programs under public health online degrees.. They would meet community heads, families and study data related to the general health of the section of the society. Many people consider public health professionals to be the same as clinical ...

The Shaare Zedek Medical Center (Hebrew: מרכז רפואי שערי צדק‬, Merkaz Refui Shaarei Tzedek) (lit. Gates of Justice) is a major hospital in Jerusalem established in 1902. Shaare Zedek was the first large hospital to be located in the Western portion of Jerusalem and is today the citys fastest growing hospital and the only major medical facility in the citys center. After the Ottoman Turks gave permission in the 1890s, and with funding from European donors, the hospital was built on Jaffa Road, two miles (3 km) outside the Old City. Its opening ceremony took place on January 27, 1902. Dr. Moshe Wallach was the director from then until 1947. Schwester Selma lived in the hospital and cared for abandoned children. The building in Bayit Vegan was inaugurated in 1980. In December 2012, Shaare Zedek assumed operational control over Bikur Cholim Hospital and merged many of its activities. The hospital treats over 600,000 patients per year in more than 30 inpatient departments and ...

For these reasons, the Working Group offers five recommendations. First, we recommend that abandonment of treatment be documented as an adverse event in childhood cancer studies in resource-poor countries. Patients who do not begin or complete treatment should not be excluded from survival analyses. Event-free survival should be analysed in two ways: by treating abandonment as an adverse event and by censoring cases at the time of abandonment. Because some children might be cured if they abandon treatment after completing most of their planned therapy, these two estimates will reflect the upper and lower bounds of the true event-free survival estimate. Second, we propose that abandonment of treatment be defined as failure either to begin (conventionally termed refusal) or to continue the planned course (abandonment), because both are likely to have related underlying causes and could benefit from similar interventions. However, the timing of abandonment should be documented to help to identify ...

My mothers house was the 1970s annex for peripatetic Parents-Without-Partners, angst ridden homeless young men from the local theatre group, abandoned children, and women seeking refuge from violent partners. She spent two decades in voluntary community education & welfare with Parents without Partners, womens refuges, citizens advice bureaux, acting as commissioner for taking affidavits, and by offering temporary shelter in her home. Tenaciously, she ferreted out missing pieces of the perplexing puzzle of the law, social security, and government grants to rectify anomalies and alleviate despair for single parent families..

Humans are social creatures, and there is no other behavioral process that is more important than attachment. Attachment requires sensory and cognitive processing that lead to intricate motor responses. As humans, the end goal of attachment is the motivation to acquire love, which is different from other animals who just seek proximity. There is an emerging body of research across multiple disciplines investigating the neurological basis of attachment and the prosocial emotions and behaviors that are the prerequisites for healthy adult relationships. The social environment, mediated by attachment, influences the maturation of structures in a childs brain. This might explain how infant attachment affects adult emotional health. Researchers are currently investigating the link between positive caregiver-child relationships and the development of hormone systems, such as the Hypothalamic-pituatary-adrenal axis (HPA axis) and Oxytocinergic system. In order to accurately study the neurobiology of ...

Healing abandonment wounds from a perpetrator MP3 Instant Download: When someone has abandoned or broken their commitment with you at a young age, it can create an emotional wound. You can learn to justify that destructive behavior, by even denying your true worthiness and joy. For example, Well he really does love me - after that person has shamed you and you dont set healthy emotional boundaries. That emotional wound can keep you entrapped and a victim. Signs of having this wound would be if you noticed a person or various people in your life always abandoning you, fear of commitment, fear of being alone, feeling cold and empty,waiting for the shoe to drop, always fearful of rejection, fearful of being not wanted or loved, etc. So in order to heal that wound within you, you have to relinquish the pain at the mind-body level. You have to identify the condition that created the wound, which is causing the problem. So in this personal empowerment process you are going to learn to resolve that hopeless
How can ecommerce marketers take their cart abandonment campaigns from 1.0 to 2.0? Personalisation to cross-channel to A/B testing, this blog post reveals all.
If these feelings continue to linger, as they often do, the event will be etched into the portion of the mind that is sensitive to the feeling of abandonment, until the anxiety sufferer will begin to question the viability of the relationship. As this process begins, the one who perceives being abandoned will start to feel unloved and unworthy, and can begin to get angry. The afflicted partner may start to get very controlling in an attempt to save him or herself and the relationship. Sufferers may start to smother their partners to the point where they become jealous if he/she spends free time with anyone else.. People with this disorder fear that their partner will not be dependent upon them, and will leave them to be abandoned once again, as they were in childhood. At times they may feel that in the end people will always let them down, and with these thoughts they can justify why they live defensively, and end relationships prematurely. This also means that they will be constantly on the ...

I think I can safely say we have all experienced some sort of toxicity in a relationship , whether it be with a family member, ex-boyfriend, friends or a work colleague. While many are born into a loving, caring, supporting family, from my many years in the clinic, this is far from the truth for many clients. This can be extremely painful when we have experienced first hand the exile, trauma or abandonment from our family members.
