Maintaining one’s own interests, activities and relationships can help to keep things in perspective and prevent exhaustion and burn out. It is also crucial for a caregiver to be prepared for the worst because at any moment something could trigger the bipolar person to have an episode in which major attention is needed. Caregivers that examine their expectations of the relationship and determine which ones are realistic and unrealistic maintain a greater sense of stability while living with a person with the disorder. Without that kind of knowledge it is easier to provoke self-doubt and internal and external friction. Bipolar disorder is a complex illness that needs ongoing management, rather than something that
* Outline why children and young people may need to be looked after away from their families (P1) * Looked after children There are a variety of different reasons as to why children may be looked after by people other than their own family, the reasons as to why the child (ren) may be look after may include family breakdown, bereavement, parental illness or an incapacity of some kind. They may also be looked after because of behavioural problems or the child’s own illness. A reason that a child may become looked after may be following the imposition of a care order. It’s the duty of every local authority to consider the welfare of every child, the Child Act (1989 and 2004) tries to make sure that children are supported and they are kept in a family home if it is possible. Alternatively, if a child has to live away from home for a certain reason and that he or she is looked after by a local authority, it would mean that the child is looked after.
This doesn't happen very happen and each case varies on how critical and important the case was. If the case was that the children were coming to harm on a regular basis then social services would seek to remove the child/children, but they usually give help and advice to the parents to stop any harm coming to the child/children. Wider forms of safeguarding are as follows:- Risk assessments providing safe environments inside and outside the school setting. Procedures and legislation health and safety, fire drills, register, etc. keeping training up-to-date in safeguarding issues.
Such as, if a child needs additional support from other professionals, you would help this child by contacting the certain professionals, if you suspect a child to be in a situation that risks their safety, an adult has disclosed information that may raise concerns over their ability to carry out daily duties in the setting. 4. Always seek advice from the manager. This is very important because if someone has asked you to keep something confidential in the workplace and you are worried about the information you have been given, you should always do this in an area where nobody can overhear what you are saying. It’s better to seek advice verbally rather than using communication such as email, which other people could access.
This could lead to conflict between the individual’s family / carers if staff involved other agencies such as Social Services. Dilemmas could be knowing when to get further help regarding child/adult protection and safeguarding issues for example if you did not refer the case to social services the individual might still continue to suffer abuse. Another dilemma would be knowing when to break confidentiality and share information. If you have any concerns about an individual or feel they are at risk you need to share them and report it, it is always better to be safe than sorry. 2.2 – There are many ways to manage risks associated with conflicts and dilemmas:- * Allowing individuals to explore with guidance, * Making individuals aware of potential hazards and dangers, * Allowing individuals to acquire life skills through learning how to cope with risky situations, * Staff ignorance, 2.3 – To get additional support and guidance on conflicts and dilemmas would be to talk to my line manager or get information from outside agencies, the intranet or the internet.
I see me as a family and child counselor, an advocate trying to help and prevent kids, adolescent, young adult not to carry anger, pain, hurt or more towards the person that mistreated them. I have a lot to learn but I am sure I will contribute to an excellent cause in human life. Where I come from going seen a psychologist, counselor or any type of professional mental or non mental is a sign of craziness. The health education is in a very bad scale, kids with autism, seizure are treated like they are posses with bad spirit, so that been said the cultural and belief are at a level of ritual treatment other then medical evaluation. Some turn to church, family other then seek help with possible

In my ignorance I had assumed Sensory Processing Problems was a childhood condition that, to some degree, would be outgrown. I had not considered the impact the condition has had on the adult population. Especially, when many have gone most of their lives undiagnosed or misdiagnosed.
They often do not want to create more of a problem or have the blame be on them. If you suspect that a child or teenager is in an abusive situation, it is your job to help. Don’t be afraid if you think that you are going to break up a home or interfere with someone else’s family. The main priority in child protective services (CPS) is to keep children in the home.
