Avoiding people who are different, such as those with a mental/physical disability or those of a different culture, is classed as discriminatory practice. By not making an effort to talk to and find ways of communicating with these individuals, it would be seen as practice which excludes them. Automatically giving someone a bedpan, as it is ‘easier’ for the carer instead of taking
To support people to live independently or to travel independently or take part in everyday activities means accepting that there are risks that cannot be avoided but can be minimised and prepared for. 1.2 For disabled people, a move away from a medical model to a social model of disability now means that there is an emphasis on the discrimination and exclusion created by social and cultural barriers. For some services, approaches to risk have in the past been concerned with avoiding potentially harmful situations to service users and staff. People may need to take risks to achieve their
With hearing loss, day-to-day activities such as hearing a doorbell, using the telephone, watching television or taking part in conversations can produce feelings of inadequacy. Impact on familiar layouts and routines Sight plays a major role in maintaining orientation and people can lose a sense of what is around them and where they are. Although listening to sound can be useful, it can move and then echo off surroundings; therefore it is not as confined or exact as vision. People with vision loss may no longer be sure where things are. A feeling of being separate and an increasing sense of isolation can occur because the brain is receiving less stimulation.
Outline and evaluate one or more explanations for sleep disorders (24 marks) Some sleep disorders are serious enough to interfere with normal physical, mental, social and emotional functioning. Insomnia can cause problems with sleep patterns and in particular difficulties falling asleep or maintaining sleep. Some people who have very little sleep suffer no ill consequences and so a diagnosis of insomnia is not based on the number of hours slept but when the resulting daytime fatigue causes severe distress of impairs work, social or personal functioning for more than one month. Insomnia may be either secondary or primary. Secondary insomnia is when insomnia is caused by a psychiatric or medical disorder and is therefore often a symptom instead of another disorder.
Dement and Kleitman can be criticised for their very small sample size as it is unlikely to represent the range of individual differences in sleeping and dreaming. Factors such as drugs, stress and obesity all affect the quality and length of sleep and so the stages of sleep. Dement et al’s small sample is not sufficient to inform our understanding of the wider population and their ultradian rhythm. However, they have used reliable methods for investigating sleep as EEGs represent a standardised test which can be repeated and the results checked for consistency. A further criticism is their use of a sleep lab which, while providing a high degree of control does take participants away from their natural sleep setting and makes the act unlike sleeping at home which present an issue for
Unit 4222 618 mental health Unit 4222-618 1 – Understand the different views on the nature of mental well-being and mental health and factors that may influence both across the life span. 1.1 – Evaluate two different views on the nature of mental health well-being and mental health. No two individuals are the same and can cope with mental health/well-being issues in very different ways. A person who feels that their life is out of their control and that their actions wouldn’t have any impact on issues they are experiencing, could blame themselves and find it very difficult without support to overcome them. A person that has a “happy go lucky” mentality, could potentially cope more with any adverse factors, affecting their mental well-being/health.

Why or why not? In my honest opinion prejudice is hard to measure because it cannot accurately be predicted or judge by a test. I feel like prejudice cannot be measured accurately because the test shows the association between different groups. The only thing I can see the implicit association test is measured are the groups that I may belong to or fit in. People cannot show the result of being or prejudice because people are known to select things that they are more familiar with, things that they are more commutable with, and things that they see in their everyday environment.

While I having been supporting an individual in my work I have encountered different behavioural characteristics. These are as follows :- Repetitive questioning which can be prevalent in autistic individuals who seem to have their anxieties calmed with the answers they receive unless of course the answer is not agreeable to them. When daily routines are altered even by the slightest margin an individual may depart from the baseline phase. When staffing is altered or the individual does not want the staff allocated to him/her. The importance of verbal and non verbal communications are for us and the individual with autistic spectrum condition to communicate the giving and the receiving of information which is what we all do in everyday life.
