Borderline Personality Disorder Mental Health Treatment
Although psychiatric hospitalization may often be used to address the suicidal and other safety crises of individuals with BPD, it is unclear how beneficial that intervention is. In contrast, partial hospitalization has shown some promise as an intervention for individuals with BPD who are not in imminent danger of mortally harming themselves or others. Partial hospitalization involves the sufferer receiving intensive mental health treatment for several hours per day then returning home each afternoon or evening. Therapeutic communities are living arrangements that provide a safe, nurturing, and structured environment for individuals with BPD that they may not have received as a child. Those communities can play an important role in the care for these individuals.
Most practitioners will use some form of psychotherapy to treat BPD. Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) addresses problems that individuals with borderline personality disorder often have relating to others and managing their behaviors and feelings. Psychoanalytic psychotherapy involves the mental health professional helping the person with BPD explore deep feelings and the ways they manage those feelings (defenses) in ways that are not constructive. Interpersonal psychotherapy focuses on helping people with BPD relate to others in healthier, more appropriate ways.
Psychotherapy remains the mainstay of treatment for BPD. Many practitioners use techniques to help BPD sufferers better regulate their emotions and interact with others. Given the constraints of health insurance-funded treatment, mental health providers are often limited to supporting patients in their daily emotional and interpersonal struggles rather than directly treating their symptoms.

If the Boss Only Knew

...IF THE BOSS ONLY KNEW: MAXIMIZING EMPLOYEE PERFORMANCE IF THE BOSS ONLY KNEW: MAXIMIZING EMPLOYEE PERFORMANCE The intention of this paper is to articulate the opinions of unsatisfied employees in a down-to-earth, easily understood and with the support of empirical research. Workers tend to fear voicing concerns in fear of the unemployment line. On the flip side, managers who are interested in earning money are not getting the most out of labor costs. It is hard to see what you are missing out on, if it was never there to begin with. This paper will exploit how organizations can ignite employee motivation which leads to improved performance, productivity and commitment. Successful organizations of today are switching focus from the shareholder to the company’s own human resources. The traditional view of laborers as cost is now view as the source of new ideas and creativity, that which cannot be as easily replaced as equipment and capital (Duening & Ivancevich, 2006). The question is, are the managers adapting to this evolved strategy. They may say that employees are number one yet are unaware they are not “walking the talk”. There are many variables to consider when implementing an employee-centered practice in day-to-day work environment. Organizations are more inclined to get the best from their employees and understanding the concept of motivation is a crucial......

...outcome of the research, this is called the observer effect. The researcher might be influenced by the participants or his or her own experiences, this is called observer bias. Non participant observations are observed at distance and so the observer has to build a result based on his or her own perception of the observation which could make the results inaccurate. A structured observation might affect the participants due to the controlled environment, and by the fact that they are being watched which means it lacks ecological validity, as it could be argued that a controlled situation is not a real life situation. The observer might be bias due to their own experiences. Could be costly to set up. The unstructured observation is only used as a first step. The naturalistic study could be a breach of confidentiality as the observed, do not know they are being watched and so permission for the observation has not been given. Mary Ainsworth (1913-1999) Ainsworth and Bell Mary Ainsworth studied the individual differences in attachment in 1970 and created a technique called strange situation classification. All the families involved were middle class Americans. Strange situation classification investigates the attachment of a child to the person who cares for them day to day i.e.; mother usually. Measuring the nature of attachment, the differences between children of the ages between 12 and 18 months old assessing attachment behaviours using a semi......

It’s only me. Two ways to understand it. It can mean that he is lonely, and it can also mean the way they talk about it in the story that’s it is only him that has those problems. Problems like bully, drugs, bad childhood and neglect from his parents. He might think it is only him who got those problems but it isn’t. 2. First we hear about an 11-year old boy that threatened to kill the girl he liked and the boy who kissed her which is jealousy. Jealousy is very often the reason for murder. He told the police that he was just joking. Another 11-year old threatened to shoot his teachers tape player, and then the teacher. He didn’t like the music. Elizabeth Bush, who wanted to become a human rights activist or a nun, shot the head-cheerleader in the cafeteria. She did it to prove the other that she could do it. 3. One reason could be that the parents think that their children wouldn’t do such a horrible thing. The parents often choose to overlook the problems, and look the other way. The parents often don’t know when the children got problems. The school doesn’t notify the parents if anything is wrong. ...

...English 1303 Abstinence-only: Does it work? Statistics show that “70 percent of US teens have engaged in oral sex…and more than 45 percent have had intercourse at least once.” Today’s future generation has been involved in sexual activities more than ever. The question is, do they know what they are getting themselves into? With the deliberation on what should be taught in a sex education class, many wonder if the abstinence-only programs are working to lower the number of teens that participate in these activities? Paul Weyrich’s article “Abstinence Education Works” and Arthur Caplan’s article “Abstinence-Only Sex Ed Defies Common Sense: Education Policy Spreads Ignorance, Sends Confusing Messages to Teens” both have different viewpoints on abstinence-only sex education. Weyrich claims that having abstinence-only education programs can prevent teen pregnancies and transmissions of sexually transmitted diseases. Research from Texas A&M, show that sex education classes that teach abstinence have significantly lowered sexual activity rates among teens. Studies show that abstinence programs are very beneficial and many ways towards teenagers. The programs teach teens to be safe, prepared, and mature about sex; as well prepare them for when they get married and have sex in the future. Weyrich finishes off strong by restating his main point: the best prevention against STDs and unplanned pregnancies is not having sex before marriage. According to Caplan, STD’s are......

If You Knew Me

...If you knew me, you would know that I skateboard, love to sing and play to guitar, and that I think my mom is very important to me. I enjoy skateboarding at Etnies, Vans, Harada, Volcom, and Jurupa. I love to sing and play my guitar almost everyday. My mom’s important to me because she’s always there for me when I need her. First of all, the reason I skateboard is because it’s a motivating and fun sport. It’s cool that I skate because not many girls do this sport. I’m also sponsored by this new company called SK8GRL. Usually I go to the skate park every one in a week. I skate with my friends, and they encourage me to do better. I also, am teaching my neighbor how to skate because she always looks up to me, as if I were her sister and it makes me feel happy. Though I’m sponsored, it doesn’t really mean that I’m really good, I still need to practice to get better than I am. Another, activity that I love to do is play my guitar and sing. I used to go to guitar lessons, but then I quit because they weren’t teaching me correctly. In the fifth grade, I entered in the talent show, and I sang and played on guitar, Ring Of Fire by Johnny Cash. My neighbor, Kirsten Proffit also plays guitar and she sings. She has her own CD. When I grow up, I want to be just like her. Now that I’m in the seventh grade, I’m in choir, and I absolutely love it! When I get into high school, I want to sign up for choir again. That’s why I love to......

Only the Lonely

...Only the Lonely Frankenstein is Mary Shelley's most notable piece of work, written when she was only eighteen years old. The novel explores the theme of loneliness and rejection. The monster created by Victor Frankenstein is rejected by human society because of his appearance. Mary Shelley explores the feelings of how the creature is utterly ignored and abused by the society. I believe the novel became a reflection of the inner state of Mary Shelly. It reflects sufferings and loses that occurred in the own authors life. As notes Anthony Badalamenti in his article Why did Mary Shelley Write Frankenstein: “She was also the product of her own past, suffering three successive losses in her early life that reveal why themes of being alone and abandoned run through the novel”(Badalamenti, 431). All these sad events and constant feeling of loneliness helped Mary to create a very deep and powerful character. Victor does not think about possible results of his experiments. He does not think what will happen when he finally succeeds and created a living creature. He is severely punished by his attitude when the creature created by him turns into a monster. Shelley illustrates that the guilt for murders can not be put only on Frankenstein's creation. Society and social norms finally result in the feeling of loneliness and estrangement. “The monster complains that his maker and mankind are moving his nature from goodness and benevolence to wrath and violence. He attempts the company of...

...adolescence, like classmates, are called peers. When they try to influence how the act, to get to do something, it’s called peer pressure. It’s something everyone has to deal with, even adults. Maybe others want to do it, and just don’t have to courage to do it and friends talk them into it. Peer pressure can be broken down into two areas, good peer pressure and bad peer pressure. Peer pressure was always thinking of it in bad terms. In terms of pressuring others into, smoking, do illegal drugs, drink alcohol, have promiscuous sex, engage in criminal and quasi-criminal, behavior, do violence, join gangs, and so on. Thinking of the many good ways that peer pressure can influence and neither do the parents of teens. It is tough to be the only one who says no to peer pressure, but they can do it. Paying attention to feelings and beliefs about what is right and wrong can help them to know the right thing to do.

If You Only Knew

...If you only Knew Nicholas Wiggins EV/100 October 27,2014 LORI KELLER If you only Knew Substances that can cause human health problems or damage to the environment can be toxicants. They can interfere with cellular function which could lead to death or other serious health problems. Some toxicants are in our everyday lives which increases the ability to being exposed to them like within on water or used on our food. Even though not all hazardous materials are toxins some can be flammable or irritate without actually killing organisms. Spooner, A.M.(2012). Disease causing agents would be toxins, that when you are exposed to over a certain amount of time can affect your overall health. One of these agents would be Perfluorooctanoic sulfonate which is found in cooking pans, used in the creation of Teflon. Studies in rats have shown increased chance of developing brain damage and damaging the reproductive cycle. Another one is Phthalates which is found in everyday products such as makeup, plastic foods and body care products. People can be exposed by eating and drinking food or water that was in contact with this substance. They can affect the reproduction system and can even lead to death from prolong exposure. Since the humans are always changing the way they eat and live so has disease been able to evolve and adapt. At first some of the major plagues were controlled by the fact that human interactions was nowhere on the scale as it is today.......

...I found the chapter 20 There is No God but Allah, and Muhammad is His Prophet very interesting to read. I’ve had previous knowledge about the Islamic Religion and the Arab people past of advances of mathematics in history when I was deployed to Kuwait but this chapter was shortly informative overall about the religion and past accomplishments on the Arab people. Although I don’t agree with the teachings of Muhammad I found the chapter interesting to read about the history of the birth of the Islam and the development of chemistry and algebra. As a Christian myself I believe that there is only one God and that Jesus is the child of God. That being said I don’t believe in the prophet Muhammad who was said to have come to teach the way of the Lord. I also I don’t agree on Muhammad’s teaching instructing that people should pray five times a day facing the holy city Mecca. In the Bible it is said that we as Christians should pray to God at all times continuously communicating to him. The last topic I do not agree with is having to take a pilgrimage traveling to the holy city Mecca once a year. In the Bible it tells us that when Jesus died on the Cross he created an open communication between God and us in which we don’t have to go to a certain place or have a certain person to be able to have communication with the Lord or to talk to Him and feel His presence we are able to do this ourselves. Although I do not agree with the teachings of Islam taught by Muhammad I did find......

...Basically any job that does not require a higher education is out of limits to foreigners (such as a bartender, housekeeper, etc.) Jobs which most Bahamians think they are too good for are easy to get (such as farm worker or gardener which is happily taken by a Haitian immigrants).In this case weather an open position by any employer that has job vacancies must first advertise them locally and is unsuccessful in finding a Bahamian personnel for the position then they will have to apply to the Department of Immigration for permission to recruit foreigners, but then again to be on the safe side the foreigner which was hired will then be asked to present the necessary document to show his/her ‘qualifications’ such as a college degree. This is only fair to the citizens of the country and both parties.Most likely these foreigners were given more than fairness, meaning that illegal children are able to attend government schools for a short period of time in order for them to get straight with legal documents...

The Only One

...bringing a new and insightful light to the story. The significance of Christ being able to self-resurrect back into the world is because he’s the only one to ever do it, and do it successfully, whereas other Gods don’t have the ability to do so. To further explain, according to the Bible, Christ is the only deity but self identified man to essentially do this. Considering his abilities is through God, and God wanted reveal to man proof of his power through Jesus, without directly showing it to them like many times prior, by raising Jesus from the dead. To emphasize this, “because He has appointed a day on which, He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.” Christ had mentioned several times that his death and resurrection would be the one thing to give to the sinful and unbelieving world God made for them. Such as, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” Further explaining that he knew he would be able to come back with ease. Foreknowing one’s own death is common in most Mythologies, but none knew of it like Jesus. They certainly didn’t perceive them coming back alive after three days either; much less escape where they were. It wasn’t......

...on the language I am using the most to get me through the day. Were as if I were required to speak and use French only I would be forced to become more familiar with French ultimately using it fluently. This is the point of many state debates about English-only. Many states have educated students from different countries with a bilingual approach for many years. They have been taught in their native language for a majority of their school day and have been learning English as a second language. How can we expect students to learn a language that they are not required to use or understand for the majority of their school day? California is one of a few states that have passed a law to provide education to immigrate students in English only. “Proposition 227 was a California ballot proposition passed in the June 2, 1998 ballot” (Wikipedia The Free Encyclopedia 2011). It ended bilingual education programs in the state and replaced them with the Structured English Immersion model. This provided students with a one-year program in English and then place the students back in main stream education and provide them the resources to then catch up in other academic areas. With typical bilingual education a student may be separated from their peers for several years while learning English which encourages segregation in schools. Were proposition 227 suggest students only be separated from their peers for one year while learning English this places them back with their peers......

What if every time you go for, is just like you’re a wind and crap to that person? How can you stay and find time to reassure that he will give you more time to talk with your problems or flaws either?
