Case Study/ Alcoholic Woman
Liberty University

Janet is a woman that is suffering from many problems that includes four divorces, and children from three prior marriages. Janet is a thirty plus years alcoholic and she has abused drugs. She is encountering issues with these problems. Her alcoholic and drug problems started when she was a teenager. Janet has experienced many problems because of her upbringing. Her parents were alcoholics and they fought each other, and they did not set a good family structure for her. She also experienced rape and molestation by her uncle. Janet has come for counseling and she desires help; in fact her life and children’s lives depend on her healing. She must initially be accessed, and place in a therapeutic treatment program.

Alcoholic Woman Janet is in sad place and she has many problems that need immediate attention. She has come to counseling to seek the help she needs.

She is a young woman in her thirtyish and her personal life is in chaos. She has children by three of her former four husbands’.

How has NBB taken a strategic approach to addressing these issues? Why do you think the company has chosen to focus on environmental issues? Probably, the environmental issues need to be addressed by the New Belgium Brewing (NBB) is cost-efficient energy-saving alternatives. ‘In 1998, the NBB commissioned study found that the largest amount of CO2 actually came from the coal-fuelled power plant that supplied the brewery with electricity’ (Melanie Drever, 2006). As a result, the company’s employees entirely agreed to invest in a wind turbine, making the company 100% wind energy brewery because CO2 emissions have bought to serious global warming, and air pollution, affecting the normal lifestyle of people throughout the world.

Impacts of Alcoholism on Family Welfare (a Case Study of Reforming Alcoholics in Suneka Division, Kisii South District, Nyanza Province, Kenya) , by Mokono Meshack Nyabiba

...CHAPTER ONE 1.0 Introduction 1.1 Introduction This chapter contains the background of the problem, statement of the problem, purpose of the study, objectives of the study, research questions, justification of the study, limitations of the study, the scope of the study and the conceptual framework. 1.2 Background to the Problem Seventy percent of Kenyan families are affected by alcoholism (Simiyu, 2006). Man has, over time, indeed come to acknowledge the fact that alcoholism is indeed destructive to the human race. This explains the reason as to why numerous studies have been conducted and some are still underway in relations to various areas where alcoholism is indeed a major threat. It is however important to note that most of these studies are mainly centered on the alcoholic. Alcoholism is a term that has many and sometimes conflicting definitions. In current and historic usage, alcoholism refers to a condition that results from continued consumption of alcohol despite the social and medical impacts that are raised by the vice. Alcoholism also referred to, in the nineteenth century and partly in the twentieth century, as dipsomania, may also refer to pre-occupation with or compulsion towards the consumption of alcohol and/or impaired ability to recognize the negative impacts of excessive alcohol consumption. The Macmillan dictionary (2002) defines the word alcoholism as a medical condition that makes it difficult to control the amount of alcohol you drink.......

...explained her that the the safe weekly rate of weight loss is between 0.5 kg and 1 kg. That’s between around 1 lb and 2 lb a week. We assessed that for a safe and healthy weight loss she will need at least 6 month (approx 20 kg). While exploring her childhood history I focused on her relationship with food and dieting. During her childhood the family had just 2 meals per day. They ate a proper breakfast and throughout the day they just drunk (mainly water) and they had another proper meal in the evening. They were eating from one plate so the children had to eat very fast if they wanted to have enough. She kept this habit and eats quite fast. In her family (and also in the society in Zimbabwe) women who were slim were considered unhealthy: a woman has to be curvy to be fertile and being able to deliver babies. She said she was never very slim but looked healthy. When she became pregnant she gain weight and it stayed on, because she was busy and did not have time to exercise and take good care of her. The same weight gain happened with her second pregnancy. She had more weight on but still felt healthy, active and attractive. When she had to leave her country and her husband died, she started to gain more weight and not long after she came to the UK she was diagnosed with diabetes. She eats twice a day quite big portions, and I explained that it is essential to have regular meals in moderate amounts during the day. We agreed that she would make some changes and try to eat......

...CASE STUDY - I PRATHAMESH STEEL (PVT.) LTD. Prathamesh Steel (Pvt.) Ltd. founded 15 years before by Mr. A.M. Bapat was having booming time. At that time, Mr. Bapat, worked both in the office and in the factory and knew his men and they knew him. Production standard were always maintained and labour turnover was practically non-existing. As the business mushroomed, the number of employees has progressively increased. Thus, Mr. Bapat's greetings and conversation with his workers became less frequent. In fact, he had so many things to do, that he could no longer supervise the factory. Thus, he hired another man, Mr. Godse as a plant supervisor. As this time though the number of workers increased to about 500, labour turnover and absenteeism increased along with the labour cases. The only thing that decreased was productivity. In order to meet the situations, Mr. Bapat granted substantial increase in wages which were already high and made some arrangements for increment earnings based on merit rating on seniority. Yet labour turnover and absenteeism continue at a high rate. On investigation, it was found that the new plant supervisor lacked the patience and understanding which is necessary for dealing with the employees. When something was found wrong, he was scolding the employees but no attempt was made to find the case of faulty work. Meanwhile, labour unrest developed. The ,Worker began to complain about working on Saturdays and not having either time or facilities change...

Also called fibromyomas, leiomyomas or myomas, uterine fibroids aren't associated with an increased risk of uterine cancer and almost never develop into cancer. As many as 3 out of 4 women have uterine fibroids sometime during their lives, but most are unaware of them because they often cause no symptoms. Your doctor may discover fibroids incidentally during a pelvic exam or prenatal ultrasound. In general, uterine fibroids seldom require treatment. Medical therapy and surgical procedures can shrink or remove fibroids if you have discomfort or troublesome symptoms. Rarely, fibroids can require emergency treatment if they cause sudden, sharp pelvic pain or profuse menstrual bleeding. Symptoms In women who have symptoms, the most common symptoms of uterine fibroids include: * Heavy menstrual bleeding * Prolonged menstrual periods — seven days or more of menstrual bleeding * Pelvic pressure or pain ......

...Case Study: Zipcar Bryan Gibson IT496 June 24, 2013 Table of Contents Case Description3 Firm History & Products3 Case Description Zipcar is a company that was co-founded by Antje Danielson and Robin Chase in January of 2000, and was based on a car-sharing system originally utilized in Germany and Switzerland. The concept was to allow car rentals by the hour, with arranged pick-up and drop-off times located in neighborhoods allowing customers to simply walk to the vehicle without the need to wait in line. Danielson and Chase were concerned about the environment and this was their solution to vehicle overcrowding. Additionally, they feel their service helps to alleviate the headaches associated with owning a car, and gives people the option of having a second car or a bigger car, if it suits their needs, without having to buy. Zipcar is backed by a proprietary IT platform which allowed the flow of information between customers, cars and the company, and social networking technologies which allowed them to develop an online community of members. Therefore, IT plays an integral part in the company’s success by creating a buzz and encouraging community development. By focusing on automation, customer empowerment, transparency and community, Zipcar brought the Web 2.0 concept to its business model. Firm History & Products Antje Danielson was a 42-year-old woman working on a Harvard energy-research project when she first contacted Robin......

...This case study is an excellent example of how different types of parties can be brought together in a large scale transaction and how the original energy of those early meetings can be lost over time. I imagine that when Anthony Athanas was purchasing those old piers back in the 1960s many, if not all, of his colleagues, friends, and family members told him that he was off his rocker. I’m sure Athanas was looking at this land as his family’s ticket to financial prosperity and somewhat of a legacy that he could leave to his descendants for years and years to come. One of the items I wish the case would have divulged is the amount of money that Athanas had invested in the properties. For me this information would have given an insight to his net worth and how much he had riding on this investment. I assume it was substantial given his actions later in the process. Twenty years later Athanas’ dreams came true and all those naysayers were more than likely green with envy. The amount of pride Athanas’ had in his investment at that moment had to have been insurmountable. Being approached by a big time real estate development company and their extremely wealthy client, Hyatt Corporation, must have made Athanas feel larger than life and made him feel like something he isn’t, which is a developer himself. The case doesn’t give much insight into whether Athanas had any representation or anyone consulting him throughout the process. From the beginning, I saw this as matchup...

Case Study.

...Title: Case study Word count: 2,300 Bandura’s (1977) core argument posits that human behaviour can be learnt vicariously by observing and imitating others behaviours, a process which he calls modelling (Wortley, 2011). He argues that social learning does not require only direct experiences as radical behaviourists of operant and classical conditioning suggest (Wortley, 2011). Bandura (1977) supports his argument with three reasons. The first is that behaviour is learned through observation (Cherry, 2013). The second is that cognitive mediation is an essential part of the learning process (Cherry, 2013). The third is that not all learned behaviour is repeated (Cherry, 2013). This is because unlike traditional behavioralists, Bandura (1977) views the internal mental processes as important as the external processes in learning (Moore, 2011). His reasoning for this is that the modelling process requires attention, retention, reproduction and motivation in order to acquire the behaviour and determines whether they instigate it and maintain it (Bahn, 2001). As such, Bandura’s (1977) social learning theory, later called social cognitive theory is built upon reciprocal determinism (Moore, 2011). He proposed the triadic SOR model, which shows how interpersonal factors; locus of control, self-efficacy and moral disengagement (organism), interact interchangeably with behaviour (response) and the environment (stimulus) (Simon, 1999/2001). This is an expansion upon the......

...Use table 16-2 to evaluate the extent to which Lynn Tilton displayed the characteristics associated with being a good leader and good manager. Lynn applies several of the leadership characteristics listed on Table 16-2. The first one demonstrated in the case study is understanding and using power and influence. When Lynn was asked by Tony Brown is she was going to strip and flip the company, she came back with a witty answer that she only stripped and flipped men, and that the companies she deals with is placed at at a higher level. She truly understands and manages her power in a positive way. If Lynn viewed her projects as flipping and stripping, it would reveal that she was only in type of industry for selfish reasons (Kreitner & Kinicki,2013, p.36). Another characteristic Lynn demonstrated is being inspiring. The case study shares that she started from the bottom and worked her way up to where she is now. She was not born with a silver spoon in her mouth, and she had to put herself through school, that alone, is an inspiration. As a single mother, she proves that one can do anything as long as they do not let anything stop them. Being charismatic is another trait Lynn uses. Anyone that can walk through a plant in high heels and fancy clothes, and maintain a positive attitude is charismatic(Kreitner & Kinicki,2013, p.36). Lynn's unique personality does not stop her from a being a successful manager. Most women would be too self conscience about wearing heels......

...Unit 1 Case Study F.C. is a 54-year-old man with a history of chronic heavy alcohol use. He has frequent bouts of gastrointestinal bleeding for which he has been hospitalized on six separate occasions over the years. He continues to drink and exhibits most of the common manifestations of alcoholic cirrhosis. He was recently hit by a car and was hospitalized for a broken leg. He appeared to be under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident and had a blood alcohol level of 0.18. F.C.’s family reports that his mental functioning has deteriorated significantly over the past few months.  Discussion Questions 1. What are the common manifestations of alcoholic cirrhosis? Which of these are secondary to hepatocellular failure? Which are secondary to portal hypertension? - The effects of alcohol depend on the level of alcohol consumption and how long the person has been drinking alcohol as well. Common manifestations of alcoholic cirrhosis vary however jaundice, vomiting, fever, nausea and portal hypertension are the most common symptoms. Jaundice is a symptom that is secondary to hepatocellular failure. When jaundice occurs, the bilirubin metabolic cycle is impaired due to the breakdown of cells within the liver tissue. The destruction of these cells enables bilirubin to decrease and not be inherited correctly. Portal hypertension is caused cirrhosis. Vascular resistance and blood flow play an essential role in the development. The complication arises as a......

...Week Two, Case Studies—Individual Assignment Due Monday, Day 7 Case Study One: A group of girls get into a verbal argument after one of the girls is accused of ruining an art project which did not belong to her. Two of the girls start to yell obscenities at the girl who allegedly ruined the project. This girl retaliates by threatening violence. The two other girls follow suit. Eventually, the argument escalates further to more yelling and threats. When questioned later individually, it is learned that one of the girls had a rough phone call with her mother and found out her father would not be visiting her. Another of the girls had a similar experience, as her parents visited during the week and she did not "get along" with them. Finally, the girl accused of ruining the project was just admitted and angry at her parents for placing her in treatment. One of the behavioral techs redirected the girls to playing sports and painting. The girls seem to calm down and de-escalate. What defense mechanism (s) is the three girls utilizing and why? Explain. Are there any other defense mechanisms at work here? Explain. There are many different defense mechanisms out there so for the purpose of this assignment we will use Freud’s defense mechanisms in an attempt to explain the behavior.

We thank the women who facilitated focus groups and helped us contact the women in this study. Finally, this report would not be possible without the contributions of the women who told us about their experiences. © 2004 Centre for Research on Violence Against Women and Children ISBN# 0-9688655-3-4 1 “To understand violence, we have to examine both the personal experience and the terrain of that experience.” Dr. Yasmin Jiawani This report is built on the personal experiences of women who have experienced workplace harassment, but their stories are also about the “terrain” or the context of those experiences. In drawing out the commonalities of their experiences, we have begun to shed light on the terrain. We must transform the terrain if women are to have equality and safety in their workplaces. 2 We dedicate this report to Theresa Vince whose death in 1996 changed the views of many people in Ontario about sexual and workplace harassment. Her tragic and untimely death showed us that workplace harassment can no longer be easily dismissed as a trivial problem. Fundamentally, the goal of this report is to prevent any other woman from losing her life and to stop the daily harm being done to women through workplace harassment. This is a call for swift and meaningful preventative measures and remedies. Theresa Vince was a......
