In this essay I will analyse in reference to the case study, how psychological theory informs our understanding of mental health disorders. I have chosen the following two theories to analyse, Psychodynamic and Cognitive. I will also evaluate how certain therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Psychotherapy may help or change a depressed person’s behaviour.
Depression is a potentially disabling illness that affects many, but is understood by few. Suffers often do not recognise the nature of this terrible illness until they are so devastated that they can no longer help themselves. (Ainsworth 2000). According to Houpt 2010, Jamie is clearly showing signs of depression. Jamie is exhausted and his schoolwork is falling behind. He has fallen asleep in class and states that he feels depressed and anxious. He also feels a great sense of loss and his eating behaviour has changed drastically. Houpt states that depression reduces, depresses and slows a person’s functional level. It slows mental and bodily activities. Therefore a slowed mind is unable to process and respond to all incoming data. Adolescent depression is a mental and emotional disorder affecting adolescents and teens. More commonly referred to as teenage depression, adolescent depression is not medically different from adult depression and can affect a teen’s personal, school, work, social and family life therefore leading to social isolation. Empfield and Bakalar, 2013).
A psychodynamic theory is a view that explains personality in terms of conscious and unconscious forces, such as unconscious desires and beliefs. (Bienfeld, 2006). The psychodynamic approach investigates the sub conscious and past experiences primarily from childhood. Freud’s theory for depression is that it is often begun by a loss and we are victims of our feelings. He relates symptoms to how individuals...

...ntroduction The communication within organizations is essential for their effective marketing performance. The introduction of a new employee or manager naturally raises the problem of his or her integration in the organizational structure and culture. The effective communication within the organization is essential for the successful integration of a new employee or manager. In this respect, it is possible to refer to the case of Jamie Turner at MLI, Inc. Description of the case situation In fact, Turner has just joined the company and he is a new team member in the company. He has taken the position of the vice-president and he works under Cardullo, who holds the position of the leader in the organization. However, Cardullo viewed people as either competent or incompetent and he had a very specific management style. In fact, Cardullo could not perceive people somewhere in between but either competent or incompetent. Therefore, if Cardullo considered someone incompetent, this individual would hardly gain his recognition and respect. At this point, it is worth mentioning the fact that Turner had a different management style compared to Cardullo. Turner’s management style was more flexible and creative. Therefore, Turner wanted to develop a management style different from that of Cardullo. However, he had little knowledge of the company and he was a completely new man in the company. In fact, Cardullo did not introduce Turner anyone in the company. Hence, he had to develop...

Under Armour New Kid on the Block

...Under Armour: New Kid on the Block Marketing Newcomer Under Armour, founded in 1996 has made its mark on the world of sports apparel and accessories. They have achieved what could be called “overnight success” when comparing them with the longevity and profits, that until recently, their competitors Nike and Adidas maintained within the industry. “Under Amour’s $3 billion in annual global sales pales in comparison with Nike's $28 billion, but Under Armour is increasingly growing its share of the sector, recently overtaking Adidas to become the second-largest athletics brand in the US”.(O’Reilly, 2015). Their various campaign commercials prove they are on a mission to appeal to customers of all demographics and athletes of all sports to remain a mainstay in athletic wear and gear.

Jorie (and Jamie)

...Jorie (&Jamie): A Deposition It is always hard for families having a kid with an illness – whether is mental or corporeal. The same is it for the family of Jorie and Jamie. Their father leaves the house and their mother ends up in jail. How and why does it end up with that? Following there will be a focus on how the narrative technique affects the story and further a characterization of the mother. The narrator of the story is the thirteen-year-old girl, Jamie. Jamie used to live in a house with her mom, dad, twin-sister and little brother. Jamie’s twin-sister, Jorie, suffers from mental illnesses like neurological impairment and epilepsy seizures. Jorie’s illnesses cause a lot of problems in the house and family. The story is Jamie’s deposition of the actions that have occurred in the house. The story’s chronology changes a lot throughout the text and switches between flashbacks and present talk, which says a lot about the narrator Jamie, and also that it is a deposition. Lines 1-34 are a flashback, but ll. 34-37 is back to present. In the present talking you can sense the authenticity of Jamie saying: “Can I see my mom now? When can I see my mom?” We get a sense of something have happened to the mother and further that Jamie and the mother are very connected to each other. This sense of that something has happened is very central for the story. First of all by an interpretation of the title, which is deposition. Something has happened and need to be......

Jamie Turner

...4254 FEBRUARY 9, 2011 JOHN J. GABARRO COLLEEN KAFTAN Jamie Turner at MLI, Inc. “Had I known how hard this job would be, I might have thought twice about leaving the one at Wolf River,” Jamie Turner reflected as he waited for his boss, Pat Cardullo, to arrive at the office on a blustery September morning. At 32, Turner was struggling in his third marketing management position since completing his MBA six years earlier. Only six months into his current assignment at Modern Lighting Industries, Inc. (MLI), he was starting to worry that his string of previous successes had hit a serious snag. Working for Cardullo had become as confusing, unpredictable, and frustrating as anything he’d ever experienced. When Cardullo, president of MLI, had interviewed Turner and invited him to join the company as vice president for marketing and sales, Turner had found the older man smart, friendly, even charismatic. Cardullo had offered him a free hand in reorganizing the marketing area, and had all but guaranteed that Turner would take over as president within two years. Before long, however, things began to go wrong: Cardullo started to seem distant and critical, and he intervened frequently in marketing decisions, sometimes undermining or even reversing Turner’s decisions. The turnaround Cardullo was attempting to engineer at MLI had stalled, sales were again declining, and things in general were rapidly deteriorating. Turner didn’t know whether to be happy or anxious—or both— when......

Type the abstract of the document here. The abstract is typically a short summary of the contents of the document.] 2013 Cour Name 10/12/2013 Introduction Mr. Kincade has been estimating the expected costs of a product J- 42. The purchasing agents have assured that the Chelsea would buy the product from him if the product would cost lesser that the present cost of $ 2.97. The new methods expected to be used were expected for large scale production in assembly lines. This large scale production would mean that the costs related to labor and major capital costs would also increase. Furthermore, the costs for inventories (purchasing and holding) would also incur and the company would have to bear these costs in case it implements the new assembly production. Variable Costs The variable costs expected for the new assembly methods are estimated as $ 147.42 (as per Sheet 1) per unit. The company if wants to reduce the costs, it would not be feasible for it to continue with this assembly production method. The variable costs include only those costs which would not incur if the company does produce the costs. The total variable costs for the different units expected vary according to these quantities. If the company has to produce 450,000 units per annum, the variable costs would be $ 66 million approximately......

The Gods Must Be Crazy

...his journey back he kills a goat, not knowing the meaning of “property”. He is put in jail where a man that used to be in his tribe saves him. He and his buddy then save Kate (the school teacher) from some guerillas and continue his journey to ”the end of the world”. He later gets to a cliff that may seem to him like the end of the world where he chucks the bottle and returns to his tribe. This movie not only makes the tribal people seem ridiculous unintelligent it makes them seem clueless in a sense. They find a bottle and al of a sudden start to go mad. I did enjoy how dim some scenes are in this but this as about all I enjoyed. The lack of realism that the movie shows is a part that makes it seem as if it could never happen. Overall Jamie Uys (director, producer and writer) do not do a good job making the plot and story realistic enough for any of this to be...

...The gods must be crazy Introduction The film, The Gods must be crazy directed by Jamie Uys, contrasts two distinctly different societies: the “Bushmen” of the Kalahari desert and the civilian urbanities of post colonial Africa. Bushmen in the Kalahari desert lived with peace and unity until a bottle of coca-cola came in to their tribe and had started the commotion of the people living in Kalahari. The bottle was used by the people living in the said tribe, they make use of it as an instrument, patternmaker, utensils and many more which caused the people to be greedy, and even exposed the tribe to anger and violence they want the bottle for themselves only. They won’t stop until they have the bottle in their own hands. It’s like they are willing to kill and fight for the bottle. Plot One day something fell from the sky. Xi had never seen anything like this in his life. It was clear and hard. He wondered why the gods sent him something like this. They thought of it as a wonderful thing they have ever seen. Theme The theme of this movie is that way of living in a rural and urban life is so much different. In the rural side there is no need of technology because a simple and peaceful life will do. In a urban side, there are already technologies introduced and people keep fighting of what they want, no unity at all. Visual Elements The movie was made to watch by everyone. It is one good movie that I think everyone will like. From the first to the last scene...

Jamie Turner

...1. The initial perception that Turner had about Cardullo is that he was smart, friendly and a charismatic personality. Hence Turner anticipated that he would be given a free hand in his marketing activities, thereby leading way to become the president within two years. With this initial perception in mind, Turner decided to take up this challenging role which had resulted otherwise as time progressed. Description: Turner initially had a wrong perception about Cardullo whom he thought would be very helpful and supporting. It was due to the confidence given to Turner by Cardullo in the new job and opportunities that propelled Turner to take up this job in Industrial Marketing which has not as lucrative as his earlier job in customer sales. The error in perception was to due to false commitments and offers made by Cardullo to Turner which he never completed and hence made Turner to think and regret his decision to join this organization. Solution: The solution to the above problem would be to provide clear job responsibilities to the employees as soon as the employee joins the organization and clearly state the expectation of the company from him. When the communication process is not clear and transparent; conflicts occur and leads to inefficiency in the work process which is unhealthy from the organization’s view point. 2. Turner wasn’t introduced to his team members upon his joining the company owing to the reason that all the members were pre-occupied with......

...Chris Abernathy Block 1 5/19/13 Gran Torino ECR In the movie Gran Torino, by Clint Eastwood, Eastwood plays a racially bitter and lonely war veteran that doesn't really have a soft side at first for anyone after his wife dead. He treated everyone the same, with a grumpy attitude. He would keep to himself cause he felt it was the best thing of him to recover from his lost. He wouldn't take any hand outs or help from anyone cause he believed he could do it all by himself and didn't need anyone. The movie shows great examples of how he went from a stuck up grumpy old man to a kind hearted caring man in the end. In the movie when Walt (Clint Eastwood) catches Thao trying to steal his car late at night for the initiation because his crazy cousin and friends were trying to get him to be more of a man and be apart of the gang. After Thao was caught and held up by gun point by Walt, he manages to get away. After that the next day his cousin and friends came back around causing problems and Walt comes out and holds them up by gun point to scare them off.

...One hypothesis as to why Turner and Cardullo are constantly struggling with decision-making is because Cardullo possesses emotional holes in his personality. Emotional holes come from infancy, areas during our youth that have lacked attention and that further on in life we try to compensate for in another ways. These gaps can be very influential in our lives because if they are significantly deep rooted they can dominate your future life and have an impact on your behaviour. Also they cannot be filled later in life, doesn’t matter how much money, awards or prizes you win it will not replace what has been missed in the past and that can lead to a lot of frustration and emotional distress. I believe Cardullo is facing an emotional hole because he does not want to give up his position at MLI; he wants to remain in power. However in the interview with Turner, Cardullo told him that he was giving him “[…] a free hand in reorganizing the marketing area, and had all but guaranteed that Turner would take over as president within two years.” There is a misunderstanding and this is because Cardullo is not ready to give up his position. His emotional hole could be related to the fact that in the past he might not have received enough attention and being the boss of MLI was fulfilling that gap or at least trying. The anger that Cardullo expresses in the workplace can be an explanation of the fact that it might frustrate him to realize that the position he holds at the moment isn’t......
