Narcissistic
Personality Disorder

04/29/2012

Abnormal psychology is a branch of psychology that deals with psychopathology and abnormal behavior. Narcissistic personality disorder is a part of psychology that struck my attention, I needed to know more. This personality disorder is a condition in which people have inflated senses of self-importance and an extreme concern with themselves. People with this disorder tend to have an overly sensitive personality and parenting problems may affect the development of this disorder. Yet, there are no known causes for this disorder. I am going to expound on the psycho-dynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and socio-cultural views of this disorder.
A number of psycho-dynamic theorist believed that this disorder begins with cold, rejecting parents and developmental problems in childhood. These theorists also believed that this disorder can come from child abuse, and or, separation of parents through divorce or death. They believe that this disorder is characterized by a need for the admiration of others, with little empathy or understanding of other’s feelings. These people consistently overestimate their abilities and exaggerate their accomplishments. When overestimating and exaggerating their own issues, they tend to devalue or ridicule the accomplishments of others. Stating things like, “I do everything, and I never get the credit I deserve.” They are very self-absorbed. They also believed that these people defend themselves from feeling unsatisfied, rejected, unworthy, and cautious of the world. They do this by repeatedly telling themselves anything appealing to oneself, such as I’m beautiful, pretty, strong and independent. They convince themselves that they are totally self-sufficient without the need of warm relationships with their parents or anyone else for that matter. Narcissists in the eyes…...

...Social Justice for Rape Survivors, an “At Risk Population” and Ways of Advocating for Them Emily R. Cazier North Idaho College Social Work 240 Kateri Ray Abstract This paper defines the “at risk population” of rape survivors in the United States. Sources for this paper were found through peer-reviewed academic papers and articles, websites for organizations that advocate for victims of sexual assault and rape, and legislative bills from the state of Idaho. This paper also seeks to define the social justice issues, legal and political issues, and advocation for these victims on the micro, mezzo, and macro levels of society. Keywords: rape, rape victims, and advocating Social Justice for Rape Survivors, an “At Risk Population” and Ways of Advocating for Them Definition of the “at risk population”: The definition of rape and survivors of rape varies around the world and especially differs from state to state within the United States of America. In the advocacy community, victims of sexual assault are generally referred to as survivors because they have survived a horrible event. (Cazier, 2013) For the purpose of this paper and in keeping with that belief, I will also refer to these individuals as survivors. According to RAINN (Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network) the general definition of rape in the United States is, “forced sexual intercourse, including vaginal, anal, or oral penetration. Penetration may be by a body part or object.” In order for the...

... have compassion on whom I will have compassion” (Exodus 33:19). Irresistible grace is also warranted in Scripture: “And the Lord your God will circumcise your heart and the hearts of your descendants to love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, that you may live” (Deuteronomy 30:6). f. Practical Application Again, I do not believe in unconditional election, nor predestination, for reasons already covered. I do like the idea of irresistible grace, however; but I also believe that grace can be earned, in a similar way that Buddhists earn Nirvana. I feel that one must reach to God, just as He also reaches out to the believer. IV. Conclusion I cannot readily call myself a Calvinist, nor believe in predestination for the aforementioned reasons; however, I do find understanding the Calvinist position enlightening, because it gives me something to argue against, in order to articulate my own theological position.

While the Research and Development portion of the company has been successful, the prestige is bought with significant costs which the company hopes to offset with outside business. The issue at hand is to decide if Ideal should proceed with outside Research and Development for other enterprises to help offset the cost or find other avenues to pursue.

...Global Warming and Energy Zrica Griffin HUM/111 February 12, 2012 Brian Deering Global warming is an increase in the worlds or earth temperature. Some say it is caused by the Green house effect, CO2, mankind, industrial, factories, gas, emission, sun, and etc. Others believe there is no cure for Global Warming due to the fact that the glaciers, Attic and the North Pole ice banks was placed on the earth by God to keep the earth cool. Now that the ice is melting the earth’s temperature is getting warmer or hotter eventually the ice is going to melt and the earth is going to catch on fire and burn. Some scientist and politicians believe in the green house effect, rather than to believing what the Bible says about how the world (or earth) is going to be destroyed. The Bible tells us the elements are going to catch on fire and we are calling this global warming. When the signs of time, wars, and rumors are in effect as this paper is being written. Who can go against the infinite intelligent that create the world in the first place to prevent global warming, when God created or made the world. Scientist, politicians, and all involved can do all they can to try to prevent global warming when no one have the resources to go against what the infinite intelligent has said in his written word. Read 2nd Peter the 3rd chapter. This paper may or may not reserve criticism due to the nature of these finding in the written word. What has been predicted in the written word no one...
