Imagine you're the interviewer and you interview someone who has arrived late and presented themselves in a very lazy manner; you'd immediately form the impression that this person is abnormal. Cultures do vary throughout different societies though, therefore there isn't one universal set of rules; this is known as 'cultural relativism'. What can be considered normal in one culture can be interpreted as highly abnormal in another. Consequently an individual could be labelled as mentally ill of 'abnormal'. This is a limitation of this definition of abnormality because It could mean people could misread another's behaviour as 'abnormal' when maybe that just follow another culture etc.
One definition of abnormality is Failure to function adequately. People with psychological disorders often experience considerable suffering and distress and a general inability to cope with their everyday activities, such as being unable to go to work or take part in social activities. So common is this failure to function among those with mental disorders, doctors are required to take this into account when diagnosing an individual with psychological problems. Common examples would be severe depression which leads to empathy and inertia, meaning that a depressed person may fail even to get up in the morning, let alone hold down a job. However, failure to function adequately is a general sign of a disorder and not itself specific to any condition.
Assess the view that deviance is merely a label applied by dome of the actions of others Deviance can be differed in many ways. A standard explanation of deviance is something that is not accepted in society. There are six types of deviance, which are illegal deviance which is going against society and not obeying the law at the same time. Historical deviance is norms and values that were not accepted in the past but are now accepted in modern society. Legal deviance is when someone is going against social norms but is still obeying the law.
Unit 393: Understand Sensory Loss Sensory loss is an impairment of any of the senses. Without probably realising we use these senses to carry out everyday life. Sensory loss can lead to isolation and frustration for individuals who suffer with these losses. Factors may be simple things we take for granted, for example people who have difficulty hearing and seeing may not be able to enjoy watching TV, a telephone conversation, or be able to distinguish between people’s faces and so on. People’s attitudes and beliefs towards people with sensory difficulties may impact negatively on individuals as they may assume that they lack understanding; quite often it may be those who are making assumptions who are acting incorrectly in accordance with the impairment; for example, people may use a raised voice when speaking to someone with a visual impairment.
A number of factors can affect an individual’s ability to effectively communicate with others. These can prevent a service user from using a service as it can interfere with the individual’s ability to send or receive information about their care. Disability can affect a service user’s ability to communicate with the service workers. Sight impairments can make it difficult for service users to read leaflets and consent forms. This is a barrier because it means that the service user can’t fully access all the information that is required in order for them to use the service entirely e.g.
An example of this would be with divorce as it is appraised differently by different parties and therefore we cannot fully decide the severity of these with which these stressful conditions are perceived as they differ from person to person. Another disadvantage is that as the uses correlation, even though it may establish a relationship between life changes and impacts on heath, it does not establish cause and effect. For example there may be another factor involved that causes an impact on health like people who experience life changes may also be more likely to engage in alcohol consumption, which may in fact be the cause of impacts on heath. Therefore this does not
This tenant does not get much support due to this which impacts on practice, staff are not able to complete tasks with her, and not able to physically monitor her well being. Staff then have to be creative in the way they work with her and constantly problem solve in order to have contact with her and meet service requirements. The second category is impaired language and communication skills. Individuals may not be able to communicate effectively, inability to take part in conversations properly or may not be able to verbally express themselves due to a speech impediment. This can impact on practice if an individual is not able to express themselves effectively it will be harder to know what their needs and wishes are.
Transgender is something that difficult to be accepted because the act is in violation of existing law. Transgender people damage faith self and giving a bad example to people about their perspectives. Although we find these groups do not interfere with other people's lives, their actions give a negative value to society. We should be aware of this growing culture and society as a cultural practice that this matter should be contained eastern may violate other religions. The second effect is Make society feel afraid of them.
Also, we need to consider cultural relativity, which means that certain actions may be accepted in some cultures but not all, like Western cultures are different to Eastern. For deviation from social norms, there is always the chance of social norms changing between cultures and over time, this means that people’s conceptions of abnormality will also change as both those factors affect how humans see the world. For example, in 1973, homosexuality was regarded as a sexual illness but nowadays, it is not as discriminated against, even if some people consider it wrong, the vast majority accept it. Also, the classification of abnormality can only be based on the context in which the behaviour occurs, as in the difference between changing in a bathroom and changing in the classroom.
Also they might feel angry because there is no one can help them or no one to go to, they might also feel stress and loss a sense who they are. -
