There is a general consensus among all the articles that I read regarding the need for more studies, tools to assess and programs at hospitals for nurses. “An increased awareness of the emotional demands facing today’s nursing workforce is of utmost importance” (Erickson & Grove, 2007). Nursing involves empathic relationships with patients, the empathic level of caring leaves us vulnerable for compassion fatigue. Compassion fatigue can affect nurses across the spectrum, from students to experienced nurses. The number of students it affects has yet to be studied, but as read in the Nursing Standard, “Nursing students in the US are being taught about compassion fatigue to help them cope with stress”("Compassion Fatigue Hits," 2011, p. 7).
Evaluate the effectiveness of two complementary therapies in maintaining health and wellbeing. Massage Concept | Percentage | A UK adult that has visited a massage therapy 2013 | 16% | A UK adult that has visited a massage therapist in their lives. | 37% | Men that visited 2013 | 10% | Women that visited 2013 | 22% | Overall it is mostly women that visit a massage base or somewhere that they may offer a massage.

People class a massage as a more feminine thing than a male thing to do but a simple massage can help you in health wise as well.
For example Gesch used a controlled study while although subjects where in confined conditions “working with 231 inmates for four months.” During the study he gave have the population of 231 inmates omeg-3 vitamins while the other half received the placebo. Result after four months violations dropped 26% and aggression 37% among the men given the supplements. The placebo group stayed about the same no surprise there. Chicc patients showed progress with supplementing omega-3 in replacement for her usual depression medication which could have harmed the fetus. Fatty acids are found to help with high risk
The eight Early Recovery Skills Groups are designed for patients in the first month of treatment or those who need extra tutoring in how to stop using drugs and alcohol. The purpose of the group is to teach patients: 1) how to use cognitive tools to reduce craving, 2) the nature of classically-conditioned cravings, 3) how to schedule their time, 4) about the need to discontinue use of secondary substances and 5) to connect patients with community support services necessary for a successful recovery. The reduced size of the groups allows the therapist to spend more individual time with each patient of these critical early skills and tasks. Patients who destabilize during treatment are often encouraged to return to the Early Recovery group until they
Cohen found a positive correlation, as stress levels increased so did the likeliness of illness. However Evans et al (1994) says the effects of stress are not always negative and can even enhance the immune system. Evans looked at the effects of stress by studying the activity if one particular antibody- sIgA. He arranged for students to give talks to other students (mild acute stress). These students showed an increase in sIgA whereas during the examination period, which stretched over several weeks, the levels of sIgA decreased.
Essay title: “A personalised induction will always be more effective”. Introduction The purpose of this assignment is to discuss the merits of a personalised induction. In order to do this I will aim to demonstrate that the personalised induction is always more effective, in order to prove this hypothesis will need to consider the modalities in which we work along with different styles both authoritarian and permissive and the efficacy in each type of induction. When undertaking hypnosis as a therapist it is usually because the client has come to you for the purpose of some kind of therapeutic were. In order to achieve this the client needs to achieve a hypnotic state and therefore an induction is required to ensure that the subject is sufficiently relaxed to allow the therapist and client access to the subconscious mind in order for therapy to take place.
If the OD program is initiated in one division, the results are used to demonstrate the effectiveness to another division. Practice and familiarity with the new methods help to reinforce the change and institutionalize it. • Evaluate the OD program results - Evaluations are important for three groups. 1. Key decision makers; 2.
A personalised induction will always be more effective Aileen McCartney Hypnotherapy and Counselling Skills – Year One - Module Two Word Count: 2034 Tutor: This essay will discuss the idea that a personalised hypnotic induction will always be more effective. In order to address this topic there will be an assessment of the different theoretical concepts used during an induction and the positives and negatives associated with these methods. Further to this the different techniques and strategies that can be employed to impart these concepts will be looked at and analysed. By the end of this essay it will have been demonstrated that although a personalised hypnotic induction is often preferable, it will not always be more effective
If research is correct, hypnotic techniques can have a significant effect on all physical aspects of human functioning. As stated by (Heap & Dryden 1991, pg 187)… “If hypnosis can affect these functions therapeutically, then it can do so pathologically. And if that is the case, it is potentially
The major difference is that hypnosis greatly intensifies more involvement within these basic psychological processes, sometimes to the point where we forget that our “as if” world is just a simulation. Also, hypnosis is more rigid and fixed ways we typically relate to time and space. In short the trance, become more temporarily suspended. Doing a personalised induction on a client we look first at the external appearance, they behaviours and their personality, and after having a good look and manage to see what style of induction it suit him, after finding out if is permissive or authoritarian you apply the correct one, if is authoritarian then you need to be more direct approach, if it permissive like me personally then you will need to be have a indirect approach. The most simple way to think about personalised induction is that more you know about the client personality, more easy is for client to be open to trance and relax, and then you can work easy with the suggestion and subconscious mind, so they can enjoy them and be
