[ send me this paper ]
This is a 3 page paper discussing schizophrenics living normal lives. An abstract is included. Schizophrenia is a mental health disorder causing delusions, hallucinations, speech and behavioral problems and occurs in approximately one in one hundred people in populations throughout the world. While people with schizophrenia were commonly institutionalized, now recent advances in antipsychotic medications and treatments have allowed many schizophrenics to maintain relatively normal lives. Treatments include aspects such as development of relationships and regimen, support networks and relapse prevention. Symptoms of schizophrenia increase with stress and/or substance and alcohol use. Recent treatments have also included holistic methods which involve those closely affiliated with schizophrenic patients and it helps in regards to personal and public support and understanding. Success stories of schizophrenics leading “normal” lives have been increasing but with the realization that those who suffer from schizophrenia are constantly aware of the delicate balance and strict regimen they require in order to prevent relapse.

Serial Killers Versus Mass Murderers
[ send me this paper ]
8 pages in length. The erroneous belief that serial killers and mass murderers are one and the same is both common and erroneous; the only distinctive similarity between the two is how they obtain complete and ultimate control over their victims and their own lives just prior to committing the homicides. Besides this single connection, these two types of slayers are quite unique in both a psychosocial and behavioral perspective. Mass murderers typically make one fell swoop upon several victims at a single location while serial killers characteristically murder one victim at a time, are very methodical and wait between killings. Mass murderers often have a bone to pick with society; the notion of mental illness is inherent to his/her personality, an instability that instills lesser public fear because of the 'average Joe' implication. By contrast, serial killers evoke greater fear due to the unknown factor of when and where their next murder will be. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

Serial Killers: Their Personalities, Their Motivations
[ send me this paper ]
6 pages in length.

Some personality traits have been shown to be more prevalent in the makeup of serial or mass murderers, and this paper addresses those traits and the motivations behind the killings. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

Sexuality: Biology Verses Society
[ send me this paper ]
An 8 page discussion of our biological and societal definitions of sexuality. With very few exceptions, exceptions which will be noted below, definitive biological criteria determine our sex.

Unfortunately, our schools have played a negative role in this process. Bibliography lists 9 sources.

Short Term Memory Loss
[ send me this paper ]
A 13 page paper reviewing short term memory loss and current research on the topic. One of the difficulties inherent in research into short term memory loss is that the condition can be caused by so many different factors, some of which are physiological in origin while others lie more in the psychological realm. It is often the first visible sign of Alzheimer’s disease, but it also can result from an over-burdened, over-stressed life that prevents facts and items from being stored for later recall. Short term memory loss is most closely associated with age, alcohol abuse and Alzheimer’s Disease, all of which are discussed in the paper. Bibliography lists 14 sources.

Stalking
[ send me this paper ]
6 pages in length. Not unlike a wild animal who pursues his prey, human stalking elicits the same sense of terror and doom from its unwitting victim. The very nature of stalking is often meant as a gesture of adoration in the mind of a psychologically unbalanced individual, as in the case of celebrity stalking; however, more times than not, it is an angry and unthinking response to emotional turmoil from such circumstances as a romantic breakup or unrequited love. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

Studying Abnormal Psychology
[ send me this paper ]

Styron & Jamison on Depression
[ send me this paper ]
A 3 page book review that compares 2 autobiographical texts on depression. William Styron (Darkness Visible, 1990) and Kay Redfield Jamison (An Unquiet Mind, 1997) have written detailed autobiographical accounts of their experiences with mental illness. Styron, a noted author, at the age of sixty found himself plunged into despair by pathological depression. Jamison, a noted psychiatrist, records how she was plagued by bipolar disorder throughout her life. In both texts, these authors relate first-hand accounts that give the details of the internal and external ramifications of their disease. In so doing, they provide the reader with accounts that have profound sociological and psychological effects by accurately describing what it is like to experience these mental disorders. No additional sources cited.

Substance Abuse Among The Mentally Ill
[ send me this paper ]
10 pages in length. Learning to live with one mental disorder is more than enough of a challenge for most people; having that reality intensified by adding substance abuse to the mix makes one's existence on earth a struggle at best and a life threatening confrontation at worst. The coupling of mental illness and substance abuse represents a situation where one disorder leads to the other by virtue of being out of touch with reality; engaging in drug use often occurs when mentally ill individuals drift toward other subgroups where such abuse is a common denominator between and among the members. In order to address the duality of mental illness and substance abuse, cognitive behavioral therapy is a recommended approach to reconstruct the way in which the individual perceives his or her entire external and internal environment. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

Suicidal Ideation Not Necessarily Associated With Bipolar Disorder
[ send me this paper ]
5 pages in length. There is little in the way of mental health issues that is not misconstrued or embellished to the point where the erroneous assertion becomes interwoven within the disorder's foundation. Those who are diagnosed as bipolar face the suicidal stigma on a regular basis not only from laypeople who clearly do not know better but also from mental health professionals who too quickly cast a broad brush of homogeny. The single greatest influence that removes suicidal tendencies from the basic description of bipolar disorder is the growing trend toward treatment that addresses both the emotional and physiological components at the same time. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

Susanna Kaysen's "Girl, Interrupted"
[ send me this paper ]
6 pages in length. There exist myriad influences that can prompt a person into sidestepping what is considered to be normal behavior. Susanna Kaysen's "Girl, Interrupted" strives to answer the long-standing and elusive question: What is normal? When Kaysen was eighteen years old, even then at such a young age she realized that she did not respond to conventional social cues as set down by societal dictates. Her literary account relives her eighteen months worth of sometimes harrowing and other times enlightening experiences, all put forth for the sole purpose of opening eyes and minds to the reality of mental illness. The writer discusses Kaysen's account, as well as draws parallels with Tamara L. Roleff's "Mental Illness (Opposing Viewpoints)" and Gerald Grob's "The Mad Among Us : A History of the Care of America's Mentally Ill." Bibliography lists 8 sources.
