May 5, by April Klazema How do you make decisions? The way that an individual makes decisions, especially in a business setting, can have a big effect on the efficacy of their decisions as well as the relationship they have with their coworkers and those who work under them.
Research, therefore, had been concerned predominantly with major psychiatric disorder. In order to obtain further knowledge about mental illness, Shepherd argued that there was a need for systematic study of the minor psychiatric disorders and their prevalence in the community.
In an attempt to further my understanding of male psychological illness, I focus on general practice in this first chapter, in part because of the proliferation of research studies that emerged from primary care on mental illness during the period.
Combined with the personal recollections of doctors working in practice from the s to the s, these studies provided me with rich material. Although it is the case that much male mental illness remained undetected in the community, as we shall see, a significant amount of male psychological and psychosomatic illness presented in primary care.
A good deal of nervous illness in women and children, for example, was related to broader psychosocial problems and difficult interpersonal relationships at home. As this chapter will illustrate, this might go some way towards explaining why women appear to predominate in statistics for mental illness.
As Elianne Riska has noted: Indeed, most physicians at this time were men themselves, and therefore bound by the same nexus of constraints and expectations as their male patients. Rosenhan during the post-war period. The SSRIs claimed to raise levels of serotonin in the brain and harmonised both with the notion of biological specificity and the concept of chemical imbalance — concepts that were to become deeply embedded in both clinical and popular accounts of depression.
Anxiety disorders, in contrast, focused specifically on distinct disorders and individual phobias such as agoraphobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder.
However, the remainder of this chapter will illustrate that during the s, s and s, in practice, debates about the diagnosis, classification and cause of mood disorders and associated somatoform conditions remained a highly contested area where much variation existed among practitioners.
Studies on psychiatric morbidity Surveys of health and sickness have a long history that begins much earlier than the period that is covered by this book.
Early studies were motivated by a desire to produce statistical information about the population, amid concerns about the effects of poverty, poor living conditions and social disorder.
The first of note is often awarded to Charles Booth for his study of late nineteenth century working class life, Life and Labour of the People and Concerns were particularly focused upon the effects of long hours of work, rationing, blackouts and the general stress of war.
The summary report for the Ministry of Health in observed that a range of minor ailments had increased, prompting the General Register Office to put forward plans for an index of morbidity to measure major and minor illness.
The result was The Survey of Sickness — published inin which a sample of 4, people were interviewed about all aspects of their health. However, when it came to psychological illness, the survey also exposed a range of methodological problems that continued to hamper the pursuits of those working on the epidemiological aspects of mental illness for the next thirty years or more.
The authors noted that the fieldwork entailed a range of problems related to the classification of illness. For example, where two symptoms were obviously connected, they would be put together; where this was not conclusive, they were noted separately.
Men featured in large numbers for ill-defined illness and also for consultations for indigestion and gastrointestinal disturbances. Motivated by such high levels of neurotic illness, and the concomitant anxieties about the economic cost of sickness absence, from the late s, much research took place in general practice with the aim of understanding more about the causes and prevalence of mental illness.
Following the foundation of the College of General Practitioners inincreasingly GPs were prompted to undertake such research themselves. This was a study of the clinical records from general practices doctors across England and Wales. Echoing the findings from The Survey of Sickness, the research indicated that psychoneurotic disorders were much more common in females, but that ulcers of the stomach, particularly duodenal ulcers, were more frequently diagnosed in men.
Through the s and s, many studies appeared in the medical press on the extent of psychological illness in general practice populations. Bynonetheless, commentators conceded that rates of recorded mental illness differed greatly between doctors and between practices. In consequence, the epidemiologist.
At the heart of controversies on this topic were two fundamental difficulties. Some clinicians were of the view that only one category of organic, depressive illness existed and that symptom severity could be located somewhere along a continuum, while others promoted the idea that there were two or more discreet versions that variously included a range of neurotic and anxiety-related symptoms.
However, there were many semantic differences between descriptions, with authors variously invoking a host of alternative terms, including: As Kendell pointed out, these semantic differences had produced many misunderstandings in the past and sustained many disputes.
As Shepherd noted, this often resulted in misleadingly low estimates because many emotionally disturbed patients presented with somatic complaints. Perth found that In this thesis I present a case study of five children’s experiences at the Intergenerational Landed Learning on the Farm for the Environment Project, and consider how the interplay between children’s agency, their family contexts, and a farm-based environmental education project co-constructs children’s ecological identities.
