Significant Events
The social, economic and political events in the United States throughout the years have shaped the way we live today. After World War II and up until the 1990’s, the United States has gone through major tragedies, schools and jobs have integrated, and President’s have been assassinated.

Central High School in Little Rock, AK, forced to integrate became known as the little rock 9. September 20, 1957, Judge Ronald N. Davies granted the NAACP lawyers, Thurgood Marshall and Wiley Branton the right to stop governor Faubus from using the National Guard to stop the nine black students from entering the high school. After finally agreeing to not use the National Guard, he wished the students would stay away until integration could occur without violence. He knew there would be violence African Americans in their school.
September 23, 1957 the nine black students were off to school. Being smart, they went in through the rear so they could avoid as many conflicts as possible. White mobs joined together to protest the new students while reporters met to support the black students. All of the white mobs went crazy when they finally heard that the new students were in their high school. The nine black students actually exited out the rear of the building the minute the mobs came so they would not get hurt.
The following day President Eisenhower actually sent the 101st Airborne Division so the students would finish their education. Each student had their own patroller but whites still hurt the black students. Melba Patillo was stabbed in the hallway and had acid sprayed in her eyes. If it weren’t for her patroller pouring water in her eyes right away, she would have been blind the rest of her life. A few weeks later the patrollers were relieved of their body guard duties and…...

... Significant Event Michael Smith PSY 105 Dr. Agbasi 11/27/2012 Significant Event My most significant event would have to be the passing of my great grandfather. He was 78 years old and died 2 weeks before my 12th birthday. He was carrying a coffin for another World War 2 veteran when he had a stroke. He was rushed to the hospital and was not on life support for 3 days. His heart was beating for a full 24 hours after his brain and stopped working. The man was a fighter. He was an Army Ranger one of the first. He loved what he did and passed that love of the army on to me. He taught me a lot of life lessons and how to be a good man to not only my family but others around me. He helped raise me due to my mother being 15 years old when she had me in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I would have to say that this event is completely accurate due to me being at the funeral. I was there to help with the funeral and do the setup. It is possible that due to my age that some of the details were left out or even exaggerated more than what happen. It also could be due to the frantic stat that everyone was in I also could have left out some details or exaggerated some of the details. Due to my knowledge of the situation I am pretty accurate.

Significant Health Care Event

...Significant Health Care Event University of Phoenix HCS/531 Martha Owen 1/28/13 Significant Health Care Event Health care has been influenced by numerous significant events throughout history. These events have helped change and shape health care in efforts to improve it, and to fit in with the current needs of the population. Some of the influences include society, culture, finance, religion, politics, technology, health trends, the environment, and population (Shi & Singh, 2012, p. 9). This paper will discuss a significant event that has changed or affected health care today, explain how the historical evolution of health care was impacted, and assess the significant event based on personal values and beliefs. Significant Event’s Relation to Health Care Excessive litigation is one of the significant events affecting health care today. Litigation has become so popular that it has become specialized. Advertisements for litigations against health care facilities and professionals are placed on television, radios, Internet, and other information outlets, at frequent intervals. It is not unexpected to see or hear several of them throughout the day. Law firms have become specialized in trying health care related cases and focus on specific conditions. The result is that health care facilities close because of the financial burden of payments resulting from litigations, the amount paid for malpractice insurance rises, insurance premiums rise, and costs of health...

...Significant Health Care Event Eugene Whitehead HCS/531 February 18, 2013 Ann Gantzer Science and technology have always been joined at the hip. The evolution of health care services in the United States (U. S.) undoubtedly has been shaped at least in part by advancements in scientific research and knowledge, and technological innovation (Shi & Singh, 2012). The following exploration focuses on ways a specific scientific or technological event or innovation affected health care provision in the U. S. to date. Health care is dynamic. Science and technology continue to prove themselves as important facilitators of the change processes that occur in health care. The scientific method and nursing process are just a few examples that demonstrate the significant contribution scientific research and technology provided to the historic development of the health care delivery system in America. This report cannot realistically address the exhaustive list of scientific and technological advancements that have benefitted the practice of medicine. However, I intend to satisfy the question of just how much influence the chosen event exerted on the course of health care evolution. The Significant Event Birth control or contraception, endearingly dubbed “the pill” by the American public made medical and scientific history in 1960. Since its inception the pill has been surrounded by controversy running the gamut from health concerns and moral choice to religious opposition and...

... passive, reproductive process, and in the process of reconstructing a memory narrative, errors can occur, but for the most part, memory does its job by bringing descriptions consistently with the general form and content of past experiences, even if particular details, in this case, my cancer treatment, were lost or distorted in the act of remembering. These significant events had been reported in various studies and recorded in my clinical history and they associated with the impact the event had on me. They were generally reported under the following categories (Timulak, 2007): * Awareness-insight events * Behavioral charge-problem solution events * Empowerment events * Relief events * Emotional-experiencing events * Feeling- understood events * Patient-involvement events * Reassurance events * Personal-contact events In my case, the effects this event (cancer) had on my well-being changed from moderate to aggressive treatments and follow-ups after radiation treatment finished 8 weeks later. At first, cancer was analyzed and the adequate treatment established. It was treated aggressively and the quantity of radiation and the quality of service (Elliott, 2002) from beginning until the end of the treatment, and after follow-ups started changed my perception once I saw the successful achievement throughout the whole ordeal. Sometimes the amount of events present in a therapy or......

...Jayquan S. Salmond Significant Event Final Paper 28 November 2014 Psychology 105 The purpose of this paper is to share a significant event I've had in my childhood. The event I would like to share is when I was in the fifth grade. This event in my life became very world-shattering when I was eighteen years old in Navy boot camp. When I was in the fifth grade I have had the most undesirable opportunity of seeing a little boy drown in our city pool. Actually, I was taught how to swim when I was in the third grade. After that fifth grade summer, I was afraid of the deep end of the pool. Seeing the little boy drown at the age of ten did not give me the desire to swim in any depth pass my waist line. As stated in the textbook Introduction to Psychology, “Cognitive behavior focuses on the processes such as memory, thought or reasoning” (Page 10). As I stood on the diving platform at the pool in Navy boot camp, my mind went back eight years to where I saw the little boy drown in the city pool. Deep inside my mind I knew I was trained well and I knew without a doubt that the instructors were highly trained in not letting me drown in that pool. However, I was still in fear that I would drown like the little boy did eight years ago in the city pool. I approached this situation with what psychology calls cognitive perspective. The memory of the kid drowning in the pool had my focused on only one thing, I may drown rather then I can swim and I will make it. How...

Significant Challenge

...Many of us have faced challenges in our lives and we have struggled with them. However, these struggles have a great impact on who we are or how we approach life later on. A significant challenge that has had an impact in my life was moving from my native country Cameroon to Texas because I learned how to adjust to my new environment while maintaining my morals and values. Relocating to another country taught me how to adjust to unfamiliar surroundings. When I moved it was hard because I was going to be in a different country, school, and community. I was very emotional when I was leaving because my most sacred memories were there, the people that made my stay there special moreover, I was going to have to start all over when my life already exists somewhere there. However, this change taught me how to conform yet maintain my morals and values in different places. I felt friendless and alone sometimes I missed my bed and the comfort of those that loved me. I had a strong accent and I tried changing the way I talked so people could understand what I say better, but that didn't work. It was hard for me to adapt moreover some people were not open to making new friendships. I tried to readjust and start over, but I came to the realization that I should just be myself instead of trying to change just so I can fit in. This was the best decision I took because as I became more true to who I am, I opened up and made genuine friends. I saw that people liked me for who I was, also......

My Significant Life Event

...My Significant Life Event Oneekah Henderson Mr. Clinton Gortney Lithonia Campus Introduction to Psychology October 28, 2014 Strayer University My Significant Life Event My life has been filled with lots of memories, not many from my childhood, some good some bad. I feel that these compilations of events have molded me into who I am and how I react to different situations. According to Settersten and Mayer (1997) (via “A life event is a significant occurrence involving a relatively abrupt change that may produce serious and long lasting effects.” For me that event was the day a man invaded my home and shot/paralyzed my husband in front of my 2yr pol son, while I was in the adjacent room. My Biological Perspective As I was in the living room I heard people talking in the kitchen, which wasn’t a surprise, I was watching a movie after getting the older children off to school. The sound of calm voices turned into tussling followed by a loud bang and my son screaming. As I jumped up, my son ran into the room and jumped into my arms crying. I immediately ran and jumped behind the sofa, pulling it back on us to hide. My hands were shaking as I tried to dial for help, only to get put on hold and sent to voicemail. As the man entered the room looking for my son, not knowing I was in the house as well, I began to shake profusely. I put my hand over his mouth whispering to be quiet, and he did.

Significant Event Final Paper

...Significant Event Final Paper Intro to Psychology Strayer University Professor Donna Joy A childhood event I went through that I vividly remember happened during the year between the age of 15 and 16. During this event, I went through what I call a self-implosion. (Luce, 2013) My cognitive perspective was being challenged, and I lost the ability to cope with events I was going thru. (Lopez, 2010) Communication these events sometimes became very difficult. How I handled most of the events during this time frame was mostly shaped by how I was brought and the beliefs that were instilled in me as a very young child. I was raised in a family six, three older sisters and two younger brothers. My parents nurtured us in loving Christian manner, always teaching us to turn the other cheek. Abide by the rules set before us not to make too many waves, and trust that things will work out eventually. If you work hard enough, you can rise above whatever obstacles are before you. Many of my mannerism was influenced by my parents as I observed them in their daily activity and interaction with others and also how they treated my siblings and me. As an adolescent I was short, larger in stature, and did not always have the latest to wear in the fashion department. All of these things along with a slightly gifted mind and a thirst for knowledge led me to be ridiculed by peers. There was many time when I was picked on by people who I thought were my friends until I displayed I was...
