Summary of questionnaire
I have changed my clients name so I can maintain the confidentiality I am required to keep. My clients name has been changed to 'Ms X'. I have collected background information in my client so I can identify different positive and negative aspects of their health. I have identified that my client is a 42 year old female. She is five foot five inches in height and she is ten stone in weight, this makes her bmi 21.5 which puts her into the normal category. She lives in a suburb, Warren Hill, Nottingham. She likes where she lives but there are some negative factors about her area, such as; it is not very close to local amenities and the bus service could be better. My client lives in a semi-detached house with one other person. Ms X is currently employed full time and works in the education sector. She considers her job to have three main risk factors - stress, violence and safety. She enjoys her job the majority of the time but feels it does not provide adequate finances. The two main stress factors in my client's life are money and work. She finds a school a stressful environment to work in and she worries about debt. My client does not have any medical health problems. Mrs X currently takes one recreational drug, cannabis; she feels this has affected her in a negative way as she now relies on it to help to relax her before she goes to sleep. My client claims she is a light
Sensitive Social problems affecting children are indications that the rights of the child is being violated
University of the West Indies Department of Educational Studies Dominica ED20X: Issues and Perspectives in Education August 22nd 2006 06006622 Question # 6 Some sensitive social problems/issues affecting children are indications that the rights of children are being violated. Table of Contents Introduction Literature Review Methodology Discussion of Findings/Implications Recommendation Appendix Bibliography Introduction In Western societies, children are recognized as potential citizens with rights and duties but deserving special protection because of their vulnerability. According to the New International Webster Dictionary, 'a child is a human being who is below the age of eighteen. This is further supported by the United Nations Conventions on the Right of the Child (UNCRC) which defines a child as 'a person under the age of eighteen unless national law recognizes the age of majority earlier. Children in many societies face a variety of problems which unfortunately may map the course that their future development may take. These social sensitive issues/problems include child abuse (sexual, physical, and emotional), homosexuality, racial discrimination and HIV/AIDS. These issues are called sensitive because they have the very undesirable effects on the individuals not to mention the fact that they rather be 'swept under the carpet' than be dealt with
The stimuli I had to respond to, were two articles about a Chinese orphanage, in which it was reported babies suffered terrible treatment, due to a lack of staff, and a lack of funding, and "Examination Day" by Henry Sleasar.
Drama Coursework Response Phase The stimuli I had to respond to, were two articles about a Chinese orphanage, in which it was reported babies suffered terrible treatment, due to a lack of staff, and a lack of funding, and "Examination Day" by Henry Sleasar. The first stimulus told us that Parents were forced to abandon their children for a number of reasons. In China having a baby boy is prized far beyond having a baby girl. This led to parents abandoning their baby girls. Many parents simply can't afford to have children due to outright poverty, or the One Child Rule, which makes life hard for parents of more than one child to make ends meet. The second Stimuli was about a child who lives in a future time, when the government had made a law decreeing that when all children reach a certain age must take an IQ test. If they are found to be too intelligent, then the child is murdered. This futuristic piece clearly aims to make us think about government control, and the idea of a Police State. The first explorative strategies we used were thoughts aloud and hot seating. We used Hot-Seating to explore the feelings and emotions of the child character, a parent of the child, and a member of the establishment who plays a part in the IQ test process. This helped us generate ideas. We found that the child did not really know what was happening to him, and he was confused and
Advantages and disadvantages of aromatherapy.
. Aromatherapy can help a person physically, mentally and it can help them emotionally. Aromatherapy can help individuals with many conditions such as anxiety, stress or insomnia and even muscular aches and pains. Many individuals said that it can help people relax and get ride of headaches. Many people also have calmed that it helps digestive problems and woman's menstrual or menopausal problems. Many people who suffer from cancer also use aromatherapy to let them feel good and it is something that they can do themselves. It was the natural way to prevent stress, anxiety, depression or even pain. Cancer patients and other patients using aromatherapy also have stated that aromatherapy can help lift your mood and enhance your wellbeing. Some people also claim that aromatherapy can help to boost your immune system, fight off colds and bacterial infections, help with period (menstrual) problems, improve circulation and urine output and relieve headaches and digestion problems although these are not any scientific evidence to prove any of these claims. It heals and uplifts the mind, body, and spirit of patients. 2. Aromatherapy can help the majority of the population as it can help young children that suffer from any of the conditions listed above. Babies have also benefited from aromatherapy but the amount given to a baby must be always closely monitored in comparison to
Demonstrate the recent development of personal skills relevant to the professional roles of the teacher.
University of Huddersfield In-Service Postgraduate Certificate in Education DFF5010 - Teaching a Specialist Subject E-learning and Tutorial, Personal Skills Development Prepared By: Cathy Hampshire Submitted 10th June 2005 . Abstract This report demonstrates the recent development of personal skills relevant to the professional roles of the teacher. There are two main areas to the report the first part describes the personal skills development of e-learning materials and how using Information Learning Technology (ILT) is aimed can address issues such as inclusive practice and differentiation. The second area of the report demonstrates the development of my role as personal tutor providing pastoral care to a group of second year AVCE ICT students, it is felt that an examination of the tutorial's role in teaching and learning would be a beneficial subject area for the secondary section of this assignment. 2.

child study visit
Date of Visit: 16th October 2006 Length of Visit: 2 hours and 40 minutes Place: Park People Present: Sam, Me Aim of Visit-Plan Today I am going to take Sam to the park, which is only about a 10 minute walk from her house. By doing this I should hopefully very easily be able to observe her gross motor skills as there will be a lot of apparatus there for her to play on that will enable her to use the large muscles in her body e.g-climbing frame etc. Whilst at the park I have also planned to play 'Simon says' with her by playing this game I will be able to observe some of her intellectual skills by seeing how she responds to instructions. Observations When Sam found out that we were going to the park she got really excited. As soon as we got there she immediately ran over to the swings and she needed me to start her off on the swing by pushing her once and then she used her legs to make her keep moving. After about two or three minutes she wanted to get off the swing and she asked me to get her off because the swing was a little bit high as her feet didn't touch the floor when she sat on it. She then wanted to go on the slide and ran straight over to it. When she was climbing up the ladder to the slide, another little girl came over to the slide and started climbing up the ladder iswell behind Sam (She looked younger than Sam and I don't think she was above 2 years old).
The two advertisements that I have chosen to compare are for Robinson's orange drink and Norwich Union loan company.
The two advertisements that I have chosen to compare are for Robinson's orange drink and Norwich Union loan company. I chose these because I saw that the two company's marketing techniques are similar, and they use similar persuasive methods in their campaigns. The Robinson's advert starts with a small child jumping around next to a woman who we presume is a relative sitting on a bench. All through this advert a simple, nursery rhyme-like piano tune is playing. These people are on an empty path next to the Thames. Trees line the avenue and you can see the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben in the background. It is a bright summer's day and the child is wearing a red and white dress with her hair tied in a red bow. The camera is quite far away and zooms into the child as she takes a glass filled with an orange drink. The relative asks: "Do you know what the capital of England is?" The little girl grabs the glass with both hands and takes a sip. She glances at the woman for a moment and then looks upward in thought. The scene then changes to what we presume is the child thinking. This is in black and white, a contrast to the bright colour film we have just seen. The child is in a classroom wearing a scholarly cap and gown. There is a large clock towards the back, a large blackboard and the girl is standing on a large wooden table. She is balancing on one leg and
Social Concequences in China.
China has around a quarter of the worlds population, but only 7% of the worlds arable land, this caused very big problems for China. Because of this problem, China introduced the one child rule, this was a very bad move in more than one way. Traditionally, the Chinese have wanted male children, so now that this policy has been introduced, they think that if the can only have one child, they would rather have a boy. They go to extreme lengths to make sure that this happens. The more wealthy families pay for an illegal scan, usually very early on in the pregnancy, to see weather the baby is a boy. If it isn't, more times than not, they have an abortion. The few girls that are left to live aren't treated very well. They can be killed at birth, drowened, abandoned, either just outside or at an orphanage. These orphanages aren't necessarily some were you would want to go. They aren't cared for or loved, they are left to die of starvation. If the parents do let the girl live, and stay with them, she is given a name which emphasises their lower status. Even until birth, an abortion can be enforced upon a woman carrying a girl or second child. One the other hand, a boy is a cause for celebration. They are usually spoilt and even by the time they get to collage, cant do anything for themselves. They have been nicknamed 'little emperors'. This complete despise of female children
Describe the treatments available to help infertile couples to have children
Describe the treatments available to help infertile couples to have children There are a variety of treatments available to help infertile couples to have children as infertility is increasingly becoming a recognised problem. Infertility is the term used to describe the inability to conceive or the inability to carry a pregnancy to a live child after regular sexual intercourse without the use of contraception. If you continue to have sexual intercourse without contraception for a year or more and still cannot have a child you are generally deemed infertile. Therefore if you are fertile you have the ability to have children of your own through sexual intercourse without contraceptives. The problems of infertility are now becoming greater as it affects over 10% of couples hoping to have children. One in ten of these cases of infertility are inexplicable which means that we can not explain why they are infertile because there is no apparent reason. When couples are told that one of them, or both, are infertile I imagine that this takes time to sink in and for them to acknowledge what this actually means. For most couples that were actually planning to have a child it would be very hard to take and they would be feeling distraught. One of the partners may feel slightly resentful to the partner who is infertile if it had been that important for them to have a child. The reason why
Does everyone have the right to have children?
Does everyone have the right to have children? In the present culture there has been a major dispute to the question, "Does everyone have the right to have children". Firstly I will cover all of the arguments that are concerned with the view that "everyone has the right to have children". The first major argument that can be formed is the one concerned with the Human Rights act, this act incorporates the view that any person is able to have a child no matter what sex, race, colour, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, association with a national minority, property, birth or other status they belong to. Infertility is a medical condition and to many it is a devastating fact portrayed through mental and social aspects of life, people sometimes forget that they should try to treat infertility instead of looking for other options which lead to obtaining a child. Fewer British people receive fertility treatments in comparison to any other European country; this is according to the latest statistics. Only a tiny proportion of such procedures are paid for by the NHS, with the result that they are prohibitively expensive for many. Most people in the UK pay tax so they have the right to have fertility treatment as the money they give through tax is spent on other people thus they deserve to utilise the NHS. It is a biological need for people to reproduce
