Scope of the Problem The whole portion of this topic is to describe and explain what mothers experience having a diagnosis and depressive symptoms means in their lives and what interventions are available to help reduce these symptoms and also preventative initiatives. Service User Experience This section of the topic will describe the issues such as lack of professional and social support network, which affects their psychological and psychosocial development. The importance of being made aware of service user experience can have a positive effect on improving interventions. Without knowing what service users experience of being labelled with postnatal depression, there will be difficulty in implementing services for service users. Service user experience is also integrated with service user involvement which will later be discussed later in the forthcoming sections.
The contemporary cultural issue of child neglect can be analyzed with the works of Sylvia Plath's “Daddy” and Joyce Carol Oates “When I Was A Little Girl and My Mother Didn't Want Me”, to unravel the true definition of child neglect and the permanent effect of emotional scars left caused by the neglect. These works provide readers with the negative impacts of emotional child neglect and how their character's invisible scars are able to be identified by others. The actual definition of child neglect is difficult to verify because it depends on the situation. Child neglect to me is the rejection or absence of a parent figure to a child. “According to the United States Department of Heath Service... ... middle of paper ... ...Fall 1994): 223-235.
The expectations of one’s surroundings shape who he or she is. Whether it is requirements from parents, society, or oneself, these pressures determine a person’s decisions and their behaviour. The plots of Cat’s Eye by Margaret Atwood and The Shape of a Girl by Joan MacLeod both focus on the bullying of a girl and the effects of these actions on those involved. The victims in both pieces of literature are singled out because they do not fit into societal norms. In The Shape of a Girl and Cat’s Eye, the stress caused by attempting to conform to society’s expectations causes the characters mental distress and keeps them in a subordinate position.
This has been identified through research conducted by Cousineau & Domar (2007) who reported that the emotional needs of service users’ attending clinics for infertility treatment have been neglected and somewhat over looked. The impact of infertility can have a profound effect on individuals and couples. According to Cousineau & Domar, (2007:295) couples can experience “overt ostracism or diverse to more subtle forms of social stigma leading to isolation and mental disorder”. Kaliarnta et al. (2001:282) notes that going through infertility treatments is “mentally and emotionally challenging on women with there being a social stigma making it difficult for women to access support which in turn leaves them feeling alone, tired and frustrated”.
Freud's philosophy and the humanistic theory explains how this is a risk to Mary's depression, suggesting that humans possess an id that seeks gratification of unconditional acceptance (Reid & Sanders, 2010). It shows that Mary’s early family dysfunction forms the basis of her negative core belief that no one wants her, as this initial rejection of acceptance poses a question to her sense of belonging. Since Tracey is deficit of acceptance at a very young age, she learns to blame her circumstance on internal causes, increasing the risk factor for her depression in adulthood (Kosslyn, Rosenberg & Lambert, 2014).

Week Three Reflection 1. What are the most difficult ethical dilemmas you face? Interning at Family Abuse Services, the most difficult ethical dilemmas working in the domestic violence field have to do with confidentiality and mandated reporting. Respecting clients’ confidentiality can sometimes create tension between the ethical desire to keep certain information confidential and the legal requirements as a social worker to report child abuse or domestic violence. When working with domestic violence victims releasing client information due to the mandated reporting law verses putting clients in more danger because of making a mandated report becomes the issue.
The premise of traditional parenting is one of the key ideologies behind Nathaniel Hawthorne’s Rappaccini 's daughter; the passage of multiple generations however, has rendered this notion impractical and irrational due to societal shifts that have changed the mentality of parents throughout history. In effect, I will apply psychological criticism to investigate the effects of the declining traditional parenting. Protection is the fundamental part of parenting, and as such parents may take extreme precautions to protect their child. Such overprotective parenting emanates from Hawthorne’s story Rappaccini’s daughter, where in Beatrice Rappaccini, the daughter of Dr. Giancomo Rappaccini was meticulously transformed into a lethal poison, which

The over dependence Rebecca experienced led to her disorder and her focus on establishing a connection/bond with her roommate. Her continuous use of defense mechanisms will make her challenge eventually get worse. Society promotes independence, such clingy behavior will be resisted and will make it harder for her to form connections the way she desires. Regression and projection will cause others to distance themselves from her because
