Student Number 20050339 REFLECTION 5 Choosing a model that suits the practitioner best reflective practice can make sense of your reflection and support a positive plan of action for next time (Bulman & Shulz 2008). Using Johns (1994) model of reflection, this reflective account will look at my thoughts and feelings following a new birth visit. DESCRIPTION This visit highlighted to me the issues and the delicacy of maternal mental health and how life events can affect the wellbeing of an individual. A close relative of the family I visited had very recently lost their baby shortly after being born. This had obviously been very difficult time and I was aware that the birth of a new baby within the family may have come with mixed emotions.
We had some difficulties and it was a very stressful time in our lives, but we made it. Conclusion Now, at this point in my life, I have been a nurse for eight and a half years, and I am very fortunate that I chose this career. I have not only been able to help provided for my husband and our three kids, but I also enjoy taking care of people and not just the paycheck. I have been able to help many pregnant woman through their
Family life has always been a key factor in regards to my future and its success. As an infant until this very day, I have seen my mother struggle to give me and my siblings a better life than she has had. My mother is an independent woman, raising my siblings and me on her own. Section 8 housing authority, food stamps, and child support has been a part of my life since I was in diapers and it’s time to make it all disappear. I see my mother breaking her back trying to give me an education she
For the little girl in our story both sides of it effected her. Using care based ethics, she was given the chance to live in a caring home where she grew to know them as her parents. When we used rules based ethics, it helped her in the beginning and one could say hurt her in the end. She was forced to move back in with her birth parents after 9 years of not knowing them. The “parents” that she did know had no choice in keeping her or not.
In my older life, and particularly within my job role, this has taught me that I can be emphatic and sympathetic towards people. I have always been interested in history, including my own family history. When I was young, I would sit for hours on end listening to grandmas stories of her own background and where she came from. This has given me a sense of my own self and has taught me how to be a good listener with the people that I care for in my working life. My parents always showed great dignity and respect for other people, their own parents, aunts, and uncles.
Everything changed from then on, name, birthdays and most of all the identity that would get me lost in this world. The character of the name shows who you are. I was shy, quiet and scared of life and people. I needed someone who would love me and protect me during my child hood years. The reason that my adoptive family that gave me a new name, was that it was a new begging of my life, a new fresh start, and looking back I would understand what they wanted me to have that I didn’t have as a child.
At the start of my continuing my education, I reluctantly made the wrong choice. Criminal Justice was a career choice that I had chosen based on the high demand of Juvenile Probation Officers. Ignoring my original dream of becoming a Social Worker, I was unhappy in my studies. Though, very interesting, this direction was not for me. After one year of core competency study.
I think we were meant to be best friends. It's always good to have a mentor in your life that teaches and experiences things with you that nobody else can. This is why I picked Kayla as my mentor. Hopefully we stay best friends for the rest of our
Becoming a caregiver entails a deeper, more trusting relationship between giver and receiver and can strengthen bonds between families. A further benefit to today’s carers is the government legislation to enhance the support provided, both financial and practical. This formal support, alongside informal support from family and friends to ease feelings of isolation can have a favourable impact on the lives of caregivers. Although care has long been considered a normal facet of family life, the impact on the families capacity to care has only fairly recently came to our attention. Many care relationships are reciprocal, family members support each other through their own choice and this can be beneficial to all.
It all starts where I am right now, in college. I’m pursing an Associate’s Degree in Nursing. This is the first step to getting me where I want to be in life. Deciding to get my Associates Degree was a big step for someone who didn’t think they were college material. In high school, I wasn’t the person to go home and do homework or study so college is a big adjustment for me.
