Managers are no help
During the stay in hospital, will be ordered again in detail, a supervisor, who is increasingly becoming a burden. Ultimately, the courts of any accountability report accepts mediators, although most everything has got worse in the situation of the clients. The care does not lead to a successful life for those who were ordered against a supervisor. The person concerned must now, even though he is usually in a helpless situation, supervisors oversee the behavioral problems, so it's no nonsense. A difficult and complicated task, which helps no one. He has been in its history anyway, no opinion leaders and had no influence, because otherwise it would not Betreung been brought about. Reasons for this are poverty and an origin from bad circumstances. Politicians e.g. not be disenfranchised because of their power and influence. Through the care, freedom of expression is limited. This means that the influence deteriorate even more. Therefore, lethal incapacitation in such circumstances. It involves a lot of money, wasting the supervisor pointless. Charitable organizations, like the churches and the DRC will not help.

The judges are increasingly absurd delusions.

Although the staff will be appointed against the wishes of those concerned, people are used without any income to the cost of care. The appointment of the supervisor happens to their declaration of intent. Although the supervisor or the supervisor does nothing for those affected, it usually pays a poor woman's holiday. After the / Supervised paid the costs of care, the caregiver is still greedy and tried as settle even twice. It concerns me several thousand euros per year. It is because of the tick, that they constantly come to the poor and the rich, such as Managers of banks to help them despite their billion false investments continue.

I agree, although the issue of multiple head trauma is more salient for the Applied Neuropsychology class as I'm teaching it than the Introduction to Human Neuropsychology class. There is a high level of comorbidity with head trauma, substance abuse, impulsivity and mental illness. That doesn't mean head injury is causative of criminal behavior. Treatment and rehabilitation of offenders certainly gets complicated when head injury is involved.

It's great having you in class.

I like your website. I am one of your Psy.D. Clinical psychology students in your Introduction to Neuropsychology course at TCS-LA and I plan to specialize in forensic psychology. I worked as a Certified Nurse's Aide in high school and college. I always loved hospital settings and psychology, but I was never interested in neuropsychology. I started my first graduate level practicum this year working with ex-cons recently released on parole in a prison-to-society re-entry program. I mostly do assessment, some individual therapy, and I co-facilitate a weekly grief & loss group.

I did not realize how often forensic and neuropsychology cross over with each other. Until I thought about how most of my clients have experienced multiple head traumas from physical abuse and/or fights. The form we use in our clinical interviews has one box that we check or don't check for head trauma and when I ask clients if they ever experienced any kind of head trauma. They always reply "No." However, when I say ?so you?ve never been hit in the head with a baseball bat, or a broken bottle, or a fist, or collapsed to the ground, or pushed down a flight of stairs, etc; after they laugh a little, I tend to get answers like "Oh yeah, I've been punched and hit in the back of the head with baseball bats, broken bottles, and pistol whipped; but usually I just blackout afterwards." Then I always say, "Yup, that counts." For most of them the head trauma began in childhood and continued throughout their lives. Additionally, all of my clients have at least three substance dependencies, at least one principle mental disorder, and none of the people come into the program even knowing psychological services are a part of the program. Most of them are only looking for job placement assistance. Until they meet with their case managers who explain the program?s process. Several of them also experience some kind of brain damage from intense and repeated polysubstance abuse due to either consciously or unconscieciously self-medicating most often to cope with psychological trauma, abuse, and social factors. Now it seems like common sense, but this connection between forensic and neuropsychology was never discussed in any of my past courses. I think this would be interesting to discuss in your course sometime this semester.
