Cognitive Restructuring

6 pages in length. People have choices in relation to how they perceive a given situation, however, those caught up in the cyclical nature of mental disorders are not as readily capable of tapping into the control they innately have over their thought processes. Albert Ellis and Aaron Beck were two instrumental forces behind the mental health community coming to realize how such negative thoughts can be sidelined when patients are guided toward cognitive restructuring. Allowing the mind to think only about carefully selected thoughts - those that do not have the tendency to instigate the vicious cycle of anxiety and loss of control - is what Ellis and Beck introduced as being a highly practicable approach to helping people realign their perspective based upon reality rather than what they believe to be true in their minds. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

Correlation Between Nutrition And Depression

6 pages in length. The mind and body do not work independently of each other but rather reflect a synergistic union that depends upon the health of each entity to fortify the connect. When the body is not receiving appropriate nutrition for proper development, the brain - one of the largest and most complicated of all organs - cannot establish the necessary functional properties for growth which therefore hinders the level of cognitive and emotional formation while at the same time promotes abnormal psychological development. Depression is a proven offshoot of poor nutritional choices, a situation that can occur at any time in life from infancy to adolescence and into old age. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

Holistic Assessment Of Self And Plan For Self Growth

6 pages in length. The process for realizing where one might require more attention in relation to self growth, the assessment looks closely at every component of an individual's composition to determine which areas are lacking, not the least of which includes physical, mental, emotions, relationships, choices and spirit. That the student scored low in both the mental and spirit portions of the assessment speaks to a deficiency in being in touch with more than just the tangible side of one's existence. The journey of holistic healing is cyclical whereby one reaps what one sows; in the quest to cultivate a greater sense of gratitude, therefore, there must be something valuable to write for each day's entry, which means conscious thought must be put forth to demonstrate that gratitude. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

Howard Gardner/Extraordinary Minds :

A 6 page book review of Howard Gardner's Extraordinary Minds (1997). Gardner's theories regarding the nature of human intelligence have changed the manner in which many educators approach their classrooms (Weiss 45). It was Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences that first caused educators to broach the ideal of tailoring school to the minds of children and how they learn rather than trying to force the children to adapt to the school. In his text Extraordinary Minds (1997), Gardner expands on his ideas concerning intelligence by taking a biographical approach and closely examining the lives of four people who exhibited extraordinary mental development: Mozart, Freud, Virginia Woolf and Gandhi (Weiss 45). Bibliography lists 2 sources.

Ideas That Influence The Understanding Of And Response To Psychosexual Development Of Children And Youth

Sexuality is an ever-evolving human behavior; from era to era and society to society, this particular aspect of humanity continues to reinvent itself as trends and disease dictate the path people take when it comes to sexual activity.

Bibliography lists 7 sources.


2218.

Infant Attachment: Theories

6 pages in length. Cognitive and emotional growth does not exist at birth; rather, each one requires the presence of security from and bonding with parental figures to nurture development. If an infant is not provided with the love and connection inherent to this bonding period, the very real potential exists for the child to have developmental problems of stability that impact his entire life. Understanding the fundamental principles behind attachment theories allows for a greater realization of just how critical a human-to-human bond is for an infant who, in essence, is a clean slate of cognitive and emotional proficiency requiring the one-on-one experience and connection in order to cultivate them. Piaget and Vygotsky are two developmental theorists who provide their respective philosophies to illustrate how vitally important the notion of attachment is during infancy as well as into the first years of life. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
