Abstract

In this assignment I will be looking at and giving examples of three totally different types of and yet still civil disorder researching and describing what happens when a situation with civil disorder happens within the United States, what plans are in place and how civil disorder is handled in this country. I will look at the different countries of China, and Saudi Arabia, as to how they handle civil disorder as well as show their contrasting methods of handling civil disorder.

I feel that it is imperative that I will give a little history to each of the countries that I have chosen to show how their methods of dealing with and handling civil disorder have come about today.

In closing I will show the similarities that all the countries have in common as well as make a brief statement on the country that I feel holds the civil rights of people closest to the United States.















The United States (U.S.) would deal with problems related to civil order control in two or three different ways depending on the size of the civil disorder. In a worst case scenario; in order for the United States to maintain civil order and control they must use The United States Civil Disturbance Plan (Operation Garden Plot). The U.S. Civil Disturbance Plan known as Operation Garden Plot it reads “If any civil disturbance by a resistance group, religious organization, or other persons considered to be non-conformist takes place, under Appendix 3 to Annex B of Plan 55-2 hereby gives all Federal forces total power over the situation if local and state authorities cannot put down said dissenters.” This plan calls for the…...

...I shouldn’t be surprised by this; It was bound to happen. However, who was I supposed to blame? My whole family had suffered from things like this, so why am I so surprised? To be honest, I think I have the worst condition in the whole family. Agoraphobia The word sent a chill down my spine. A coward is what I am! I was afraid to go outside! What a wimp! I was the only one in my family that had this phobia. It was kind of embarrassing to look at my family as a whole. I wasn’t the only one that had troubles, I was surrounded by crazy people. Ironically enough, my mother had tokophobia - fear of child birth, but she kind of had to get over that one after having three kids. My 17 year old sister Sandra has Ataxophobia - Fear of disorder and untidiness. My 10 year old cousin Allie had Cathisophobia - fear of sitting. My 4 year old cousin Ben had Astraphobia - fear of lightning and thunder. And My friend Jamie had Heliophobia - Fear of the sun. There were still normal people in my life, like my brother, Sandra’s twin Adam and my dad, but that only went so far when you lived with a bunch of crazy people. We lived in a quiet neighborhood in West Hartford Connecticut. My Cousins lived next door to us, so we were close with each other. Since there were five kids with phobias, we made the phobia clubhouse. It was a place where everything we feared was gone, and we were allowed to rant with each other. It was perfectly equipped for all of us. It was in our loft for me since I...

The ages of diagnosis can range from 9 months to 14 years however the mean age of diagnosis is 13 months. On average each case of ASD is tested at 3 different diagnostic centers before confirmed. Early diagnosis of the disorder can diminish familial stress, speed up referral to special educational programs and influence family planning. In the brain The cause of ASD is still uncertain. ASD is a disorder of the cortex, which controls higher functions, sensation, muscle movements, and memory. What is known is that a child with ASD has a pervasive problem with how the brain is wired.

Professional had different opinions on the cause of this disorder, for example, witchcraft, had to do with the uterus until men were found to have the same condition, the person is a hypochondriac, and demons were entering the body. In the eighteenth century panic disorder was known as the “nervous illness." Today we know that panic attacks are a sudden urge of overwhelming fear and anxiety. There are many myths that surround panic attacks such as it is all in one’s head, it is not a real illness, make one face the fear head on, a sign that one is going insane. Other myths include that one will be on medication for the rest of their life, cause internal damage as a heart attack would, there is no treatment, and it is as an excuse. These types of rumors or beliefs can cause one to not seek professional help. Past treatments for anxiety in eighteen seventies were to refrain from exercise as anxiety was considered to be nervous exhaustion and it was straining the nervous system. Other harsher treatments were strychnine, arsenic, and quinine. For severe cases, a hot white iron was applied to the spine. In the year nineteen twenty, exposure to the fear, and radionics was used...

Bipolar Disorder

...Bipolar Disorder HCA/240 Prepared by: Ta’Kesha N. Cutter Prepared for: Wanda Carter Bipolar Disorder Bipolar disorder, also known as manic depression, has been researched since the 1st Century in Greece, and is one of the earliest recorded illnesses. Bipolar disorder causes extreme mood swings. These mood swings include extreme lows such as depression, as well as extreme highs such as mania or hypomania. When one becomes depressed they may feel hopeless or sad and lose interest or pleasure in most activities, even activities that they once enjoyed. Mood swings can occur as frequently as every day or only a few times a year. Bipolar disorder symptoms may cause strained or damaged relationships, poor performance at work and school, and even suicide.  According to mayoclinic.org, “Although bipolar disorder is a disruptive, long-term condition, you can keep your moods in check by following a treatment plan” (mayoclinic.org, 2015). The mention of bipolar disorder has been dated back as early as the 1st Century in Greece. Aretaeus of Cappadocia, who was a physician and philosopher during the time of Nero or Vespasian, began the quest into the disorder by beginning the process of detailing symptoms. Aretaeus detailed the link between mania and depression. “ Aretaeus described a group of patients that who ‘laugh, play, dance night and day, and sometimes go openly to the market crowned, as if victors in some contest of skill’ only to be ‘torpid, dull, and sorrowful’ at...

Hoarding Disorder

...Hoarding Disorder VS. OCD Jasmine Riddle Professor Shawn Lee Module2 Obsessive Compulsive Disorder April 16, 2016 Some disorders, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) are characterized by classic obsessions. Obsessions are repetitive, unwanted, and intrusive thoughts that trigger anxiety. In other disorders, such as BDD and hoarding disorder, the intrusive thoughts could be more aptly described as a persistent and unrelenting preoccupation. In the case of BDD, this preoccupation focuses on personal appearance and attractiveness. In the case of hoarding disorder, the preoccupation centers around possessions. The causes of Obsessive-compulsive and related disorders remain speculative. OCD may even be a heterogeneous set of disorders with different triggers and etiology (Thorpe, Bennett, Fried, & Nottingham, 2011). OCD is characterized by a reduced ability of security-related behavior to terminate motivation evoked by potential danger, rather than a heightened initial sensitivity to potential threat. They lend support to the security-motivation theory of OCD (Szechtman & Woody, 2012) and have important implications both for research into the biological mechanisms underlying OCD and for the development of new treatment approaches. The intrusive thoughts of people with hoarding disorder are associated with their preoccupation regarding their possessions; specifically, parting with, or losing these possessions. Unlike spontaneous OCD obsessions...

I will compare and contrast the method The United States uses to other countries such as, Japan, England, China, and ‘ Saudi Arabia. How does the United States deal with problems related to civil order control? Well, one example of how the United States deals with civil disorder is Waco and what happened at Kent State. The U.S. has a Civil Disturbance Plan in place for dealing with these specific types of situations. When it was first created it was named Operation Garden Plot.
