ISSUES TO UNDERSTAND CH. 14 1) The Compromise of 1850 was a dispute on whether or not Mexico (gained by US) would become a slave or free state. The northerners didn't want the 36'30' line to be moved to the Pacific and the southerners didn't want "free soilism" which would make Mexico a free state. Northerners gained from the Compromise California as a free state, New Mexico and Utah as likely future slave states, a favorable settlement of the New Mexico-Texas boundary, and the abolition of the slave trade in the District of Colombia. Southerners gained the burial of the Wilmot Proviso's persistence of new territories being free states, but the position of the free-soilers remained viable, for the compromise left open the question of whether Congress could prohibit slavery in territories outside the Mexican cession. –How did the Compromise of 180 affect Southerners? 2) The Fugitive Slave Act affected the relationship between the two sides because often when a slave would leave and escape to the North, northerners wouldn't do anything to help get the slave back, in fact, in most incidents northerners tried to help keep slaves away from southerners if they escaped. South began to realize that opposition to slavery in the North was a threat to what they believed.-What was the Fugitive Slave Act and how did it hurt Southerners? 3) Uncle Tom's Cabin made many people convert to the belief that slavery was wrong and evil. It caused many people to view southerners as evil people. It also made northerners have sympathy for black slaves.-How did this book affect people's view of slavery? 4) The second party system collapsed because Whigs began to split into two groups: the American (know-nothing) Party and the Republican Party. Whigs also began to fall apart because of immigration. They thought immigration would not be important because they wouldn't be a big enough force for…...

Evaluate the Extent to Which Freud's Theory of Psychosexual Development Can Help Us to Understand a Client's Presenting Issue

...“Evaluate the extent to which Freud's theory of psychosexual development can help us to understand a client's presenting issue.” The main aim of this essay is to demonstrate an understanding of Freud’s theory of psychosexual development and how this theory may help us to explain and identify adult neurotic behaviour. I shall be evaluating the pros and cons of psychosexual theory and the extent to which it helps us to understand a client’s presenting issue. I shall also define and consider the relationship between the Id, Ego and Superego and the way in which these constructs of our psyche are in many ways representative of earlier experiences and of those early situations and conflicts we had faced. Lastly, I will examine some of the criticisms that have been leveled at Freudian theory in order to evaluate it. In Freudian psychology, psychosexual development is a central element of the psychoanalytic sexual drive theory; that human beings, from birth, possess an instinctual libido (sexual energy), that develops in five stages. Each stage – the oral, the anal, the phallic, the latent, and the genital – is characterized by the erogenous zone that is the source of the libidinal drive. Sigmund Freud proposed that if the child experienced sexual frustration in relation to any psychosexual developmental stage, s/he would experience anxiety that would persist into adulthood as a neurosis, a functional mental disorder Freud (1905) stressed that the first five years of life......

Finally, I Understand

...Chronister, Barbra Dr. Silcox ENGWR 101 2 December 2013 “Finally, I Understand Why!” Have you ever had a conversation with your significant other and walked away thinking, “was he even listening to me?” or “did he hear a word I was saying?”. Have you ever experienced a confrontation with your boyfriend, because he swears you meant something you said one way, when in fact you meant something totally different? Has your husband ever been telling a story to some of your friends, and when you cut in to help him support his story, he looks at you like your trying to take over? All of these scenarios can be extremely frustrating. If I had a dollar for everytime it happened to me, I’d be a millionaire, twice over.Yet, these are some of the conversational obstacles couples have to overcome, sometimes everyday. I, myself, got lucky. My brilliant English professor assigned a book for our class to read, and believe it or not, it has actually helped me. My conversations with my boyfriend, seem to flow a lot smoother now, thanks to some of the things I read in this book. This amazing book called You Just Don’t Understand by Deborah Tannen, talked about all of these issues. I can honestly say, I agreed with every point Tannen made in her book. Tannen talked about how men and women have different conversational styles, like when it comes to listening. Tannen says, “ When a woman is confronted with a man who does not say “yeah”---or much of anything else---she may conclude that...

...Evaluate the extent to which Freud’s theory of psychosexual development can help us to understand a client’s presenting issues” This essay will look into Freud’s psychosexual theory and will describe how it relates to adult neurotic behaviour. The essay will then look at some of the criticisms he had. Psychoanalysis, begun in the 1900s with Sigmund Freud being hailed the Father. Freud's theories of psychosexual stages, the unconscious, and dream symbolism remain a popular topic among both psychologists and laypersons, despite the fact that his work is viewed with skepticism by many today. 1 Many of Freud's observations and theories were based on clinical cases and case studies, making his findings difficult to generalise to a larger population. Regardless, Freud's theories changed how we think about the human mind and behavior and left a lasting mark on psychology and culture. Another theorist associated with psychoanalysis is Erik Erikson. Erikson expanded upon Freud's theories and stressed the importance of growth throughout the lifespan. Erikson's psychosocial stage theory of personality remains influential today in our understanding of human development . 2 The aims, which are similar to psychodynamics with psychodynamics commencing in the 1940’s. Psychodynamics continues as a discipline in its own right, and could be viewed as the child of psychoanalysis. Psychoanalysis is a lengthy form of therapy whereas psychodynamics is often...

Evaluate the Extent to Which Freud’s Theory of Psychosexual Development Can Help Us to Understand a Client’s Presenting Issue

...This essay requires a basic fundamental understanding of Freudian theories and their contributions to psychological therapies. The theory of psychosexual development is contentious and the aims of this essay is explore what legacy Freud has given to modern therapy and whether it is at all helpful in the understanding of client presenting issues. Sigmund (Sigismund) Freud was born to a large Jewish Family on May 6th1856 in Pribor in The Czech Republic – formally Freiberg, Moravia, the family settled in Vienna where he studied medicine and practised as a neurologist. During work with Josef Breuer in 1892 and later with Jean Charcot in Paris he was taken by the ability to recall painful experiences under hypnosis. He founded that the mind was a complex energy system and that there is more to psychology than what is immediately available to the conscious mind, surmising that by gaining insight into unconscious thoughts and motivations, a client could be cured of his neurosis; at the time his ideas were seen as shocking, - and albeit controversial, are now accepted as commonplace, with modifications and variants, in therapy today. Freud was certainly not the originator of the concept of the unconscious; this was largely developed by the man Freud regarded as “the Great Fechner”, Gustav Fechner (1801-1887)- bestowing his work with prodigious enthusiasm, Freud declared that he had “followed that thinker on many important points” (Freud, 1925) Link S. (unknown). The Freud......

...psychological issues. Oftentimes, these families are involved in the child welfare system, due to the negative violence and discord in the households, which places children at risk. This population is of great interest, as that studies have shown adolescents who witness domestic violence are vulnerable and do not have the capacity to understand nor cope with the trauma. According to Osofsky (2003), adolescents experience intense stresses that include fear of death and fear of loss of their parent. The negative effects result from children having to integrate the experience of violence and child welfare involvement, while living in a stressful environment. As a future clinician, I would like to utilize different therapy methods and specific strategies in treating these individuals. Integrated review of literature Children who have been involved in the child welfare system have experienced or witnessed some form of abuse or neglect, which causes them to have behaviour, emotional and psychological issues. Some of their behaviors, which are moderate to severe include: hitting, pushing, kicking and threatening others. Moylan, Herrenkohl, Sousa, Tajima, Herrenkohl, & Russo (2009) suggest many children who witness domestic violence have also directly experienced child abuse and experience a wide range of adverse behavioral and psychosocial outcomes. In the overview of literature the authors gives a culmination of families types, cultural styles, and the issues these......

...Issue The airline industry is facing one of the most challenging environments in its history. A global economic slowdown, punctuated by the events of September 11th, has led to a decline in passenger traffic, continued yield reductions, decreased load factors, and burgeoning fleet, insurance and labor costs. As airlines grapple with how to deliver a consistent and distinctive customer experience while maintaining low operating costs, they have turned to the promise of CRM. Although operational and security issues became top of mind immediately after September 11th, CRM has gradually come back into focus as airlines recognize the importance of effective customer management in establishing long term competitive advantage. CRM’s promise is indeed compelling strengthened loyalty driving increased revenue, with lower acquisition costs and improved operational efficiency. For full-service airlines, CRM is an essential component of their corporate strategy, the means of differentiating themselves from competitors in the eyes of the customer. And although low cost carriers may be less reliant on CRM as a means of driving competitive differentiation, even they must invest in fundamental CRM technologies and processes to manage the customer efficiently over the course of the travel experience. Increasingly, airlines are recognizing that CRM is a long term investment, with the true benefits reaped through profitable lifelong customer relationships. Although many airlines understand......

Evaluate the Extent to Which Freud's Theory of Psychosexual Development Can Help Us to Understand a Client's Presenting Issue

...words:- 2636 “Evaluate the extent to which Freud’s theory of psychosexual development can help us to understand a clients presenting issue?” I will begin this essay by first describing Freud’s psychosexual theory of the five stages of psychosexual development. I will then look at some of the main criticisms of this controversial theory and how this theory and his ideas have resulted in a serious interest and progression in psychology and the psychological treatment of mental disorders that has stretched through even to the present day. I will follow this by looking at how I believe these theories have helped and effected how we understand a clients presenting issues. The five stages of psychosexual development as Freud describes them are as follows:- The oral stage (0-1 year old), the anal stage (1-3 years old), the phallic stage (3-5 or 6 years old), the latency stage (5 or 6 - puberty) and the genital stage (puberty- adult). Before explaining the five stages in detail, I feel it is important to refer to Freud’s theory of personality development and how these five stages effect that progress. It is also worth mentioning that having read many articles on the subject, there is a common belief that people may misinterpret Freud’s use of the word “sexual” and that he was actually using the term in a more general way to relate to all pleasurable actions and thoughts. In relation to Freud’s theory on personality development, he believed the personality consisted of three......

But, Hillary is as former secretary you using personal email as if that’s a big problem. Hillary have as answer any questions regarding the whole email thing and she has apologize for doing it so my thing is why continue to discuss this matter. Unless knowingly that using a private email is against the law for their particular position and she went anyways and still did it then I can understand but if shit be a hot topic she made a mistake but because of politics and because she running for president they are trying to discredited her and use the line “how can we trust her”. Reading the headlines I feel the republicans are just trying to make the democratic look bad. “It was my choice. She said “ It was a mistake back when I did it, and I’m trying to do the best I can to answer all of the questions that people have. But if she use a private server for any work-related emails that she sent to government email addresses from her private email address would be captured on federal servers she believe so I felt she didn’t think it would have been a problem. I feel this is non-sense and there is a bigger issue at hand then Hillary and her private server emails I could care less I need to know about other information and what they planning on doing such as health benefits and EBT issue not emails. ...

Evaluate the Extent to Which Freud’s Theory of Psychosexual Development Can Help Us to Understand a Client’s Presenting Issue?

...Freud’s theory of psychosexual development can help us to understand a client’s presenting issue? (Word count 2,749 excluding bibliography, references) Sigmund Freud’s theory of psychosexual development is based on the idea that parents play a pivotal role in the sexual and aggressive drives that form in the early years of their child’s development. Freud (Freud & Philips 2006) proposed that psychological development in childhood takes place in a series of fixed stages - psychosexual stages. Each stage represents the fixation on a different area of the body and as a person grows physically, certain areas of their body become important as sources of potential frustration, pleasure or both. Freud referred to the instinct or drive which resulted in these fixations as the ‘libido’ and the areas of the body as the ‘erogenous zones’. Freud believed that life was built around a series of tensions and pleasures; believing also that all tension was due to the build-up of this libido, or sexual energy and that all pleasure came from its release (McLeod 2008). In describing human personality development as psychosexual Freud meant to convey that what develops is the way in which sexual energy accumulates and is released as we mature biologically. McLeod further explains that Freud used the term 'sexual' in a very general way to mean “all pleasurable actions and thoughts”. I believe this is a crucial point in helping understand what Freud was saying; certainly I have......

What Do You Understand About the Amazon Tribe and the Issues It Faces?

...Q: What do you understand about the Amazon Tribes and the issues it faces? From this extract, we understand several things about the Amazon Tribes and the issues it faces. Firstly, we discover that the tribe is ‘isolated.’ The word ‘isolated’ implies that the tribe has no contact with the outside world. In the next paragraph, we learn that the tribes are also self-sufficient as they are able to grow their own crops for food such as ‘maize, sweet potato, pumpkins, bananas and peanuts.’ This implies that despite the lack of resources these people were provided in the Amazon Rainforest, they have the skills to be able to craft their own supplies such as food in order to survive. In addition, we also learn that, like any other societies in the world, the Amazon tribe has their own unique culture. We learn that the men of the tribes wear ‘cotton waistbands and some have headdresses.’ Not only does this show that these tribes have their own unique traditions as previously mentioned, but it can also indicate that there are different hierarchy levels in the tribe. We get the impression that the ones that wear ‘headdresses’ are the chief or main leader of the tribe and the others are just normal members of the tribe. Similarly in the English society, our queen wears the crown to symbolize her status. Furthermore, one of the issues faced by the Amazon tribe is the fact that there is a chance of the tribe being captured again. This is because many tribes like this have moved to......

Evaluate the Extent to Which Freud's Theory of Psychosexual Development Can Help Us to Understand a Clients Presenting Issue.

...“Evaluate the extent to which Freud’s theory of Psychosexual Development can help us to understand a client’s presenting issue?” In this essay I am asked to evaluate one aspect of Freudian theory. I will begin by first describing Freud’s psychosexual theory and demonstrate an understanding of its relationship to adult neurotic behaviour. Having done this I will examine some of the criticisms that have been levelled at Freudian theory in order to evaluate it. In 1905 Freud published ‘Three Essays on the theory of Sexuality and other Works’, one of those essays was titled ‘Infantile Sexuality’. In this essay Freud sets out his theory of psychosexual development. He asserts that there is in all humans an innate drive or instinct for pleasure, a sort of psychic energy, which he calls the libido and this energy needs to be discharged. He then goes on to describe how this drive finds outlet at the earliest stages of life, as babies, toddlers and infants and describes the oral, anal and phallic stages and the psychological effects of fixation at these stages. It is important to note that Freud separated sexual aims and objectives. His work on sexuality and perversions led to the wider theory of sexuality whereby he differentiated the sexual aim (the desire for pleasure) and the object (the person or thing used to fulfil the desire). He asserted that sexuality is more than just genital copulation between adults and this work is the background to his theory on infantile sexuality....

You Just Dont Understand

...You Just Don’t understand In Deborah Tannen’s book, “You just don’t understand,” I thought there were many interesting points she brought up. Especially dealing with how male and female communication styles differ. I also thought many of her arguments were completely correct and I have experienced them in day-to-day life. Her first discussion that caught my eye was the difference between men and women responding through frustration when dealing with dilemmas. In this section, “I’ll fix it for you,” Tannen discusses how men and women are easily frustrated by the way the opposite sex responds to problems. She explains how women often recent the fact that men offer solutions to their problems. They do this because men tend to want to fix the problem immediately and put it behind them. However on the other hand men become frustrated with women because they don’t always take action to solve the dilemma. They instead will draw out the problem and complain about it instead of seeking and immediate solution. This was something is completely agree with. From personal experiences I’ve seen men handle problems by solving the issue as soon as it arises and laughing it off to forget about it. While women sometimes wallow in their problems and gossip about them instead of finding a solution to move on. Another point dealing with this topic that I thought was very true was when men try to help women solve the problem. The man tries to give a solution to the problem from his own......
