CLOSE ON the front door, which swings open to reveal Mrs. Betty Algur. She is our multi-talented stock actress and appears, this time out, as a sixty-year-old farmer's wife. She has been driving most of the morning to reach this unfamiliar auto dealership. Her trips to "civilization" are limited, and she has the wide-eyed look of a tourist, combined with the happy expression of someone who has finally reached her destination. REACTION SHOT on Tony, as he sees her come in. He stands at his desk, smiling. Tony Long trip? Betty Honey, you don't know the half of it. A three-hour drive in the valley, and what's it like out there? One hundred degrees. Nice and cold in here though . . . Tony Air conditioning. Betty Yeah. I guess so. Well anyway, I made it. ANOTHER ANGLE-as Betty reaches into a large, patchwork-quilt handbag and takes out a newspaper, turned to the auto ads. Betty Might as well get down to business. I know what I want. This pickup truck you got advertised, the one here for eleven thousand, three hundred, and ninety-nine dollars.ANOTHER ANGLE-as Tony goes forward and looks at the newspaper ad, at the same time introducing himself. Tony Tony Sulka. Betty Betty Algur. From up near Vacaville. Tony Well come on over and sit down. Vacaville . . . that means "cow town," doesn't it? Betty Six hundred of them on our ranch, the last time I counted. Tony How about a cup of coffee? He leads her over to his desk and sits her down, but remains standing himself. Betty Okay. More than two hundred miles. Drove it all in an old Ford pickup, with the original engine and every one of the original rattles. I called over the phone, and the man said he'd give me three thousand dollars in trade for it.Tony Oh yeah, I remember. That was me. Betty Well, it's all yours. Tony Of course, we've got to take a look at it first. Betty Oh, really? That's not what you said on the phone. You…...

Betty Jean Owens (1959) was a young black college woman who was viciously raped repeatedly by four white males at gun point whilst her female friend had escaped and her male friends were allowed to leave. The men that were allowed to leave reported the incident to the local authorities and were involved in a chase to apprehend Owens’s rapist. After the apprehension of the four white males, they gleefully admitted to the crime. Ms. Owens pressed charges, and the men were trialed and found guilty but were saved from the death sentence. The Owens case is not an isolated incident for prior to her case they were hundreds of black women that were brutally raped and beaten but the culprits were never charged, in fact Lisa Bramlet’s is said to have borne twenty three children, twenty of which......

Betty Ford Case Study

...will tend to become dependent on alcohol when having increasing issues with their emotional and physical health. Betty Ford is a case of substance abuse and alcoholism that became a famous case. Throughout this essay I will discuss Betty Ford and her issues with substance abuse and alcoholism. I will also analyze the biological, emotional, cognitive, and behavioral components of the disorder from substance abuse. Client Description Current Description Betty Ford grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan as the youngest of three children and the only daughter to father, William Bloomer, and mother, Hortense Neahr (The National First Ladies’ Library, 2012). Although Betty’s experiences growing up were both positive and pleasant, her mother was a perfectionist who had exceptionally high expectations for her children, and her father was a traveling salesman who very rarely spent time at home. When Betty was 16 years of age her father passed away. Because her father rarely spent time at home, it wasn’t until after his passing that she discovered that he was an alcoholic. Betty also discovered that her older brother Robert was also an alcoholic. Betty’s first taste of alcohol was in her youth when her mother would add bourbon to a cup of hot tea as a means to reduce the effects of an illness (Meyer, Chapman, & Weaver, 2009).. Predisposing Factors As a young adult, Betty enjoyed socializing with friends at night clubs where she was not only able to dance but to indulge in a few......

Betty Newuman Nurse Theorist

...Betty Neuman Systems Model Polina Kreyman Miami Dade College Betty Neuman Systems Model Throughout the years I have learned about many nursing theories, one that I particularly agree and with is the Betty Neuman System Model Theory. She believed that “Health is a condition in which all parts and subparts are in harmony with the whole of the client”. Betty Neuman divided the systems into four different parts, nursing, person, health and environment. In the first part, Neuman believed that nursing requires a holistic approach, an approach that considers all factors of the client’s health. For example, the clients physical, physiological, psychological, mental social cultural, developmental and spiritual well being. She believed that a nurse must be able to adjust to meet the individual and unique needs of every client. Furthermore, Neuman saw a person as an open system that works together with other parts of its body as it interacts with an environment. Neuman regarded the concept of a person as an individual, family, community or society. In the next approach she focuses on the health as a dynamic of a client. In other words, a persons health depends on upon which state of health continuum they are in line with, the person may be in line with the state of wellness or illness. Disharmonious system reflects illness as a result of unmet needs of a person. The state of health varies according to the degree a person has to environmental......

...Model of Betty Neuman Nursing 403 S. P. * “The model was originally developed as a graduate course in 1970, first published in 1972, classified as a systems model in 1974” (“The Neuman Systems Model (5th ed.) by B. Neuman and J. Fawcett (Upper Saddle River, NJ: Pearson, 2011),” 2012, Para. 1) * “The Neuman systems model focuses on the wellness of the client system in relation to environmental stressors and reactions to stressors” Fawcett, (2001 para.1) * As described in above quotation it is easy to understand that the most important concept in Neuman Theory is that a person is a layered multidimensional being, and a complete system with interrelated parts such as internal and external environments. Each layer of complete being consists of five person variable or subsystems: * Physiological - Refers of the physicochemical structure and function of the body. * Psychological - Refers to mental processes and emotions. * Socio-cultural - Refers to relationships and social/cultural expectations and activities. * Spiritual - Refers to the influence of spiritual beliefs. * Developmental - Refers to those processes related to development over the lifespan.

Case Study of Betty Ford

...Case Study of Betty Ford Substances like alcohol are used for many reasons. Alcohol is frequently used as a means of celebration, and also to assist in diminishing feelings of being anxious or overwhelmed. Some people use alcohol in social settings, whereas other people may drink alone. The use of alcohol to self-medicate when challenges come up in everyday life can cause significant problems. In many instances a person can become totally dependent on alcohol so that he or she can function appropriately. If a person builds a tolerance to alcohol, he or she will most likely need to drink every day as well as consuming larger amounts in order to achieve the same feeling. One of the most prominent and well-known instances of alcoholism and substance abuse is Betty Ford. Betty Ford was married to President Gerald R. Ford and was thought to be one of the most powerful first ladies in our history. Betty Ford’s achievements include her sponsorships of breast cancer awareness and women’s rights (Meyer, Chapman, & Weaver, 2009). Even though Betty Ford was acknowledged and respected for these achievements, she turn out to be an even greater inspiration in society when she admitted to and overcame her lifetime battles with prescription drugs and alcohol. Betty Ford was raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan and was the only daughter and youngest of three children (The National First Ladies’ Library, 2012). Even though Betty had a pleasant and positive childhood, her mother was......

Betty Friedan

...Betty Friedan – The Mother of Feminism Betty Friedan was born as Bettye Goldstein. She was born in Peoria, Illinois on February 4, 1921. Harry Goldstein, her father, emigrated from Russia in the 1880s in which he built himself a successful jewelry business in the United States (Parry, 2010). Miriam Horwitz, his wife and her mother, was the daughter of Hungarian Jewish immigrants, who actually was unable to attend Smith College due to her parents’ refusal (Parry, 2010). At the fact that her mother was not able to complete her dream of school and education, her mother would continually push for her to do well in her academics because she knew the potential her daughter had. However, even though she saw her potential, she knew that her daughter’s Jewish upbringing would be her hindrance, but she continued for her to strive on and was not ready to give up and surrender to how things were. Therefore, Betty’s rebuttal was always there from the beginning. Her Jewish upbringing caused Betty to experience many blunders along her way. In her high school located in Peoria, Illinois, Jews were not welcome in sororities or fraternities, which had truly played a detrimental effect on her because they played a big role at her school (Selle, 1998). Even though her academic successes were stellar, she was continually shunned upon due to her ethnicity and background. Not only was Betty a spectacular student, but also she was also a writer, poet, and the founder of a literary (Selle, 1998).......

...can be made. First, Betty must decide whether to operate her new business as part of a franchise or not. She has already had offers from franchises that offered to provide her and her staff with any training needed. Other potential benefits from operating as a franchise include a proven recipe for success and access to financing if needed (Wilmington Trust). Some of the disadvantages of operating under a franchise include a lack of independence and a high initial investment (Wilmington Trust). Another option for Betty would be a sole proprietorship. The advantage of this would be that there would be very few rules and regulations that she would have to abide by in regards to the government (Scott, Demand Media). The disadvantage would be that Betty would have very little liability protection (Scott, Demand Media). The risk of her getting sued and losing her assets is much greater with this type of business structure. Another option for Betty would be to open a partnership. The partnership is great as far as ease and simplicity for filing taxes and other legal documents, however, there is very little liability protection in this type of business entity as well (boundless.com). Betty could operate as a corporation and have protection against her personal assets; however, operating as a corporation requires more complicated paperwork such as articles of incorporation and annual reporting of financial data (boundless.com). Yet another option for Betty would be to......

Application of Clinical Psyhchology: Betty Ford

...Application of Clinical Psychology: Betty Ford Courtney Bowers, Tina Colbert, Janell Thomas, Mervin Waldron PSY/480 March 30, 2015 Tara Thompson Application of Clinical Psychology: Betty Ford Substance abuse can stem from a variety of biological, psychological, and social factors. These factors may vary from addict to addict, and it is the role of clinical psychology to examine the roots of addiction, and what type of treatment, such as interventions, would apply to and possibly work best for each individual. Interventions have to be rational as they apply to a patient, and the clinical psychology professional would have to have a plan as to who is involved, where will it be, what should happen, and what specific areas the intervention will focus on. We will examine the case study of Betty Ford, and uncover the possible reason for addiction as well as what type of interventions may work best and why. The Case of Betty Ford Many have heard of the Betty Ford Clinic, but most think Betty Ford, former first lady opened the clinic up because she wanted to help substance abuse addicts. In fact, that is precisely what she wished to accomplish, but for reasons other than just helping. Betty Ford was an addict herself. In 1978, Ford admitted that she was an addict, and a week later went into a treatment program. Inspired by the ability to overcome drugs and alcohol through treatment, in 1982, the Betty Ford Clinic was opened. Substance abuse doesn't lend itself......

Betty Ford

...The Case of Betty Ford “Anyone and everyone can escape the hell that addiction has created for them and their families if they dare to take that first big step – reaching out for, and accepting help” (Betty Ford, 1982). Betty Ford is best known for her role as the First Lady to President Gerald Ford from 1974 to 1977. It was not until 1978; however, that Betty Ford’s primary influence was recognized – the creation and development of one of the most celebrated drug and alcohol recovery centers – The Betty Ford Center. Today, the facility is credited with providing top of the line care to those with addiction problems and offers programs for the entire family system affected by addiction. Treatment is gender-specific; with men and women residing in separate facilities and includes a one-of-a-kind treatment center for children whose parents are addicted (The Betty Ford Center, 2010). History Betty Ford was born in 1918 and was raised the youngest of three children. Betty began experimenting with alcohol in her early teens – first as an additive to tea by her mother for different ailments – and later as a response to peer pressure. By the time she became First Lady, Betty was quietly drinking several times per day. It was not until 1965 that Betty became addicted to prescription pain killers after seeking out non-surgical solutions to a severely pinched nerve on the left side of her neck (Myer, Chapman, & Weaver,...
