Some of the current sources of stress for the criminal justice professional are, long hours and not enough family time with loved ones. I do believe that the agencies provide adequate assistance with managing occupational stressors; they are just not explored and used enough by the individuals that need them. I believe the politics of corruption exists within the field of criminal justice. I say that because it seems that if you are wealthy strings can be pulled for you and u can afford the best lawyers, and u could be guilty but you will get off because you or your family are well off. On the other hand there that middle class of poor that knows nothing about the system or doesn’t have the resources to get a good lawyer they are screwed completely ruin your life and affecting some people around you.
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.

SOCIOLOGY CASE STUDY OUTCOME 1 PART2 When looking at the impact of the family upon child A from a functionalist perspective where all the parts of the machine/body need to work for it to run smoothly then it is blatantly clear that there are many parts of this particular family have not been working the way they should. Firstly if you start with the absence of any father then this leaves child A without one of the primary care givers and the role that he would’ve filled. This rejection from the father has caused a massive blow to child A’s self-esteem and has left feelings of low self worth, anger and confusion. The absence of the father also meant there was no positive male role model for child A and this may be at
Disability Does Not Mean Different Some people with perfect health or no diagnosed mental disorders may look at someone with a disability as a person less fortunate, less productive, or even useless. They might wish they didn’t have to see them, hear or read about any of their problems. They might think that the government should or should not help, but they should not be so quick to judge or differentiate. The mentally and physically disabled are every bit as normal as the same people who so rudely define them as different. People with physical or mental disabilities lead rich and constructive life’s every day, all around us and there may be a lot more of them then you might think.
Another example could be, if a member of the family tries to remove themselves from a specific role they have surrounded themselves with for years, this is usually difficult due to the other members of the family resisting that particular change. All five of the cases that have been discussed have one major ingredient in common. Each individual has been misunderstood by one or more people that surround them in their daily life. The perception of these individuals is misled due to lack of knowledge toward a condition in which the afflicted person is unable to act or react to situations deemed acceptable to societies standards. Take Jim for instance.
Unfortunately, however, that is often not the case for people with mental illness. People with depression, for example, are often perceived as if they have “brought it on” or “created it” themselves. While the stigma surrounding mental illness has become less intense, it is still very much an issue. These words often come to mind: crazy, unstable, irrational, overly sensitive, weak, less-than-whole,
“Does it dry up/Like a raisin in the sun” brings to mind a person who loses their motivation to achieve something after being delayed for so long. Another person may become impatient and restless, being infected by the hopelessness or their undeveloped dream—“Or fester like a sore/And then run?” It isn’t difficult to imagine a weary, worried person when the lines “Maybe it just sags/like a heavy load” are heard. “Or does it explode?” One could certainly be angered when they are not allowed or expected to achieve their goals and dreams. Nearly everybody in the Henry Horner projects have dreams deferred. The children are especially affected when they are not able to pursue their dreams.
Very often, people forget about the importance of our mental health. We forget how big a part it plays towards our well-being and how much it matters to the people around us. It has a huge impact on every aspect of our life, from self-image to physical health. Mental illness impairs our ability to perform routine tasks, foster healthy relationships, or cope with anger or stress. It can be diagnosed on the basis of extreme mood swings, erratic or destructive thought patterns, and behavioral problems.
They assure that ‘things are too soft’, and that discipline has broken out. What is more, given the fact that children and adolescents are more difficult to handle as years go by, it is almost impossible for the heads of these establishments to stand this situation. VERY GOOD Secondly, the dissatisfaction some people may experience due to the conditions under which they work is another factor that may lead to madness. Dwellers that are not happy with their job can easily have a not very adequate reaction. For example, some people that have public work may always have arguments with citizens or colleagues without a clear reason.
