I am writing my essay Carl Levin. Carl Levin was a United States Senator from Michigan from 1979 to 2015. Carl Levin had some courageous actions. He supported the civil rights movement, women rights movement, legalizing same sex-marriage he also believed in a better education equals a better future. I believe he will be best served in a larger public interest. I think that because he had a lot of experience, he was the longest-serving senator in the state's history. He does exemplify political courage because he not afraid to take a stand for what he believes is right. During the Women’s Right Movement in the 60’s and 70’s, the World of American women was limited in almost every respect, from family life to the workplace. A woman was expected to follow one path: to marry in her early 20s, start a family quickly, and devote her life to homemaking. Carl Levin signed the Women’s Equal Right’s Amendment in 1972.

Carl Rogers

...Carl Rogers (1902- 1987), theory is described as a humanistic personality theory, that there is always an emphasis on personal growth. Rogers believed that all living organisms are born well and that they are motivated to grow and develop in a positive way (Atkinson, 1981). A concise description in this essay will explain Rogers’s theory of personality, and the difference approaches that he uses to define between a fully functioning individual and low functioning individual. It will then describe the approaches Rogers used in his client-centered –therapy. Rogers gives a detailed account of what he thought to be the most beneficial part of therapy, which is the relationship between client and therapist. It will give an account of both strengths and weaknesses found in both his theory and therapy. Carl Rogers’s theory of personality is a clinical theory based on years of dealing with clients (Pecitelli, 1996). In Rogers opinion the core of a “man’s nature is essentially positive”, and he is a “trustworthy organism” (Pecitelli, 1996). These beliefs are reflected in his theory of personality. His entire theory is built on a “single force of life”, in which he calls the actualising tendencies. It can be defined as the built in motivation present in every life form to develop its potentials to the fullest extent possible. The tendency is constructive, directional and is present in every living being (Atkinson, 1981). The key structural concept of his theory is the self. The......

Carl Rogers

...In reading about the humanistic theory, psychologist Carl Rogers speaks of motivation, how we perceive the world, how we think about ourselves and others, and also how the world and the people can play a major role in our lives, changing our motivation, for better or worse, kind of like the "butterfly effect" or domino effect". In Carl Rogers opinion every who, what, where, or when is contributing to the person we are going to become in life. Abraham Maslow, on the other hand, seemed to believe quite the similar views but at the same time in a different perspective. Abraham's views on Humanistic Psychology were based around the self-actualization or knowing their own path very clearly being self motivated, starting from the bottom and working their way up. For example, we as people know that the first thing we have to do in life is go to school. After graduating high school the next thing in moving up is furthering our education through college courses. The next steps to moving up would be landing your dream job, getting married, having children, buying your first house until you've reached a comfort zone in your life which would be your personal point of self actualization. From what I've understood with the self concept process, in the first few months of a child's life self concept is born. In a set of perceptions and beliefs about themselves rooting from the influence of self enhancing experiences, such as, positive regard or the sense of being valued and loved by......

Klein Levin Disease

...Kleine Levin Syndrome BY: Tapan Patel & Mark Shihata Kleine-Levin Syndrome (KLS) is a rare and neurological disorder characterized by periods of excessive amounts of sleep and altered behavior. The disorder affects adolescents primarily, the disorder also strikes mostly in males with a shocking 70 percent of cases occurring in men. At the onset of an episode the patient becomes progressively drowsy and sleeps for most of the day and night, waking only to eat or go to the bathroom. When awake, the patient’s whole attitude is changed, often appearing “spacey” or childlike. When awake the person experiences confusion, disorientation, complete lack of energy and lack of emotions. Most patients report that everything seems out of focus, and that they are hypersensitive to noise and light. In some cases, food cravings are exhibited. Instances of no sexual drive and lack of any form of emotion during an episode have also been reported. Kleine-Levin Syndrome episodes are cyclical. When present, KLS symptoms persist for days, weeks or even months, during which time all normal daily activities stop. Individuals are not able to attend school, work or care for themselves. Most are bedridden, tired and uncommunicative even when awake. Affected individuals may go for a period of weeks, months or even years without experiencing any symptoms, and then they reappear with little warning. In between episodes those diagnosed with KLS appear to be in perfect health with no evidence of......

...In: Science Primary Health Care and Carl Taylor Comparison of the insights into Primary health care provided by Dr. Carl Taylor’s lecture with the insights provided from the other assigned lectures. In the lectures, it is clear to me that even though there has been differing philosophies between several prominent public health practitioners, their belief in the key Alma Ata pillars of Primary health care (Equity, Community participation and Intersectoral development) is definite. The WHO (1978) definition of Primary health still suffices and is still a reference even after decades of experimenting with different approaches in different settings. Carl Taylor, demonstrates this belief in his quote, “There is no universal solution, but there is a universal process to find appropriate local solutions.” Going through the videos and lectures, it is very inspiring that there have been wide innovative approaches to bringing health care closer to the people. The Comprehensive Rural Health Project – Jamkhed clearly demonstrates this. It has made tremendous efforts to bringing health closer to the people. The project has truly combined both horizontal methods of community participation and vertical approaches of pre-natal and post natal care, immunization, and prevention and treatment of some very common ailments. I was specifically intrigued by additional effort of this project in considering the eradication of other social problems like poverty and gender inequalities......

...Comparative Analysis Person Centered Therapy and Choice Theory/Reality Therapy By Austin (Russ) Duffy Introduction Person Centered Therapy; Carl Ransom Rogers, Born January 8, 1902 – Died February 4, 1987. Rogers was an American Psychologist who developed Person Centered Therapy (originally referred to as Client Centered Therapy in 1951) based on premise that clients are responsible for taking control of the changes they believe are needed in their lives. This would be a clear departure from Freud’s lengthy approach where the counselor would interpret the client’s story or life experience. Rogers believed, using empathetic understanding and unconditional positive regard people would have the potential given the proper tools to resolve their own problems. Rogers identified accurate empathetic understanding as another critical task of therapists. Choice Theory / Reality Therapy; William Glasser, born May 11, 1925 is an American psychiatrist who developed Choice Theory / Reality Therapy in the early sixties therapies. Choice Theory is an explanation of human behaviour developed by Dr. William Glasser. Reality Therapy is the application of Choice Theory within the context of helping relationships Glasser first developed this approach to use working in schools for troubled adolescents and may explain his life-long interest in both therapy and education. In 1985 the Institute of Guidance Counsellors arranged for Dr. Glasser to visit Ireland. By 1987 the Irish......

Carl Rogers

...Carl Rogers is best known for his contributions to therapy. Dr. Rogers felt that clients look to therapists for guidance, and will find it even when the therapist is not trying to guide. Carl Rogers' theory on guidance was focused on a person's 'true self'. Dr. Rogers said that in order for people to know their true selves, they had to focus on their self-concept. This consisted of a set of beliefs about behaviors, thoughts, and feelings that could be more or less conflicting with the person's real behaviors, thoughts, and feelings. A person whose self-concept was drastically different from their true self would constantly run into situations in which their behavior surprised or upset them. Rogers said that self-concept was influenced by society. Society disapproves of a wide range of behaviors, and many people choose to ignore those behaviors inside themselves. Rogers would listen non-judgmentally to the patient's statements and would reflect back so that the patient would accept his or her true self. He named his therapy, client-centered therapy. He felt that the client was the one who should say what is wrong, find the way to improve, and determine the conclusion of the therapy. Dr. Rogers assisted people in taking responsibility for themselves. He believed that the experience of being understood and valued gives us the freedom to grow. Dr. Rogers sees the human being as: "capable of evaluating the outer and inner situation, understanding themself in its context, making......

...migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand. It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known." — Carl Sagan (Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space) "How is it that hardly any major religion has looked and science and concluded, "This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant?" Instead they say, "No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way." A religion, old or new, that stressed the magnificence of the Universe as revealed by modern science might be able to draw forth reserves of reverence and awe hardly tapped by the conventional faiths." — Carl Sagan (Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space) The size and age of the Cosmos are beyond ordinary human understanding. Lost somewhere between immensity and eternity is our tiny planetary home. In a cosmic perspective, most human concerns seem insignificant, even petty. And yet our species is young and curious and brave and shows much promise. In the last few millennia we have made the most astonishing and unexpected discoveries about the......

Carl Jung

...Carl Gustav Jung was born on 26 July 1875 and died on 6th June 1961. Carl Jung was a Swiss psychiatrist and psychotherapist who founded analytical psychology. Carl Jung was an early supporter of Freud because of their shared interest in the unconscious. He was an active member of the Vienna Psychoanalytic Society. Carl agreed with Freud in many areas but not in regards to the Oedipus Complex. Jung proposed and developed the concepts of extraversion and introversion archetypes and the collective unconscious. His work has been influential in psychiatry and in the study of religion, philosophy, archeology, anthropology, literature, and related fields. Much of Carl’s work was not published until after his death. Carl Jung believed that “the central concept of analytical psychology is individuation the psychological process of integrating the opposites, including the conscious with the unconscious, while still maintaining their relative autonomy”. Jung considered individuation to be the central process of any human development. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), a popular psychometric instrument, was developed from Jung's theory of psychological types. Jung saw the human psyche as "by nature religious" and made this religiousness the focus of his explorations.]Jung is one of the best known contemporary contributors to dream analysis and symbolisation. Through research, I have discovered Jung was a practising clinician and considered himself to be a scientist, much of......

Carl Jung

...Carl Jung was a Swiss psychotherapist and psychiatrist who founded the school of analytical psychology. He became the protégé of Sigmund Freud but he began to drift apart from him when they began to have different views. He rejected the latter’s emphasis on sex as the main focus of behavior motivation. He is best known for his concepts on introversion and extraversion; these contributed to personality psychology and have influenced psychotherapy. I can say that as an individual, I like to hang out with my friends. I like to meet new people and talk with them. Through meeting different kinds of people, I feel that the way I see the world is in a different light; I see it in a different way. Though there are times when I prefer to be alone, there also time when I like to be around people. I can’t really say that I am an extrovert since I don’t always like to be in parties and social gatherings. I also like to spend my free time reading books. But people always tell me that I am one because I am loud and talkative and it’s not hard for me to get along with people. Carl Jung said that, “People are not purely introverted or extraverted; each person has both introverted and extroverted aspects to his or her nature, and both factors involve complex variations. One set is dominant (conscious) while the other is inferior (unconscious).” I believe that my extrovert personality is dominant over my introvert personality. So to clear things up if indeed I’m an extrovert, I......

Carl Zeiss

...Carl Zeiss Case Summary Carl Zeiss is a German optics company which was developed in 1846. Zeiss is one of the leading worldwide producers of lenses. Zeiss serves several optics markets which includes metrology, eye care, and surgical instruments. The company sales in 1994 was $20 million, however the division income was $464 million in 2001, in which the firm had $2.1 billion in sales.

Most of the semiconductor lenses sales come from a Dutch Buyer, whom the company has a special relationship with. Zeiss had this plan in mind since 1968 when the company began working with Telefunken. Telefunken is a German company that began working on a wafer stepper machine. Wafer steppers allow certain lights to be seen from a mask while blocking the rest of the light. Zeiss has prospered, at least in part, because of a very forward-thinking strategy. What operations core competencies are apparent in the firm? How has it taken advantage of these in developing competitive strategies? Operation strategies are setting broad policies and plans for using the resources of a firm to best support the firm's long-term competitive strategy. Operations strategy can be viewed as part of a planning process that coordinates operation goals with those of the larger organization. While goals of larger organizations change......

Carl Jung

...[pic] CARL JUNG   1875 - 1961   Dr. C. George Boeree   [pic] Anyone who wants to know the human psyche will learn next to nothing from experimental psychology.  He would be better advised to abandon exact science, put away his scholar's gown, bid farewell to his study, and wander with human heart throught the world.  There in the horrors of prisons, lunatic asylums and hospitals, in drab suburban pubs, in brothels and gambling-hells, in the salons of the elegant, the Stock Exchanges, socialist meetings, churches, revivalist gatherings and ecstatic sects, through love and hate, through the experience of passion in every form in his own body, he would reap richer stores of knowledge than text-books a foot thick could give him, and he will know how to doctor the sick with a real knowledge of the human soul. -- Carl Jung Freud said that the goal of therapy was to make the unconscious conscious. He certainly made that the goal of his work as a theorist. And yet he makes the unconscious sound very unpleasant, to say the least: It is a cauldron of seething desires, a bottomless pit of perverse and incestuous cravings, a burial ground for frightening experiences which nevertheless come back to haunt us. Frankly, it doesn't sound like anything I'd like to make conscious! A younger colleague of his, Carl Jung, was to make the exploration of this "inner space" his life's work. He went equipped with a background in Freudian theory, of course, and with an apparently......

Sol Levin - Blood for Sale

...Blood for Sale 1. Is Sol Levin running a business “just like any other business,” or is his company open to moral criticism? Defend your answer by appeal to moral principle. Sol Levin is running a business like any other business person in the world. However, I think the type of business he is in open to moral criticism. I found it hard to make the same decisions. I do not have it in me to buy blood at a quarter and sell it for a dollar. In the world I live in, blood is life and you give the life for free. If I were firefighter, I would pledge to lay my life for another. Thus this idea is foreign to me. 2. Did plasma international strike a fair bargain with the West Africans who supplied their blood to the company? Or is plasma guilty of exploiting them in some way? Plasma international purchased blood from poor South African people for fifteen cents to the pint. They then sold it here in the United States for up to twenty five dollars per pint. I believe it absolutely is the exploitation of poor people to further the success of a few. A fair market value could have been paid at the rate it would have been paid in the United States. 3. What are the contrasting ideals of the British and U.S. blood systems? Which system, in your opinion, better promotes human freedom and respect for people? Which system better promotes the supply of blood? In the United States blood can be bought and sold in The United Kingdom it is not. I think that the United Kingdom model it promotes the......

Carl Robins

... Introduction Carl Robins who is a rookie for ABC Inc. was given the task to hire 15 new employees and have them in orientation by June 15. Being that Carl was so new to his position he accepted the offer of being in charge of these employees without taking into consideration what his task really would consist of and the process of getting it done. Background On May 15th Carl receives a phone call from Monica which was the person these fifteen people would be working for. When Carl answers the phone he sounds positive toward Monica as she is kind of high through the checklist Carl with a smile on his face and laughing loudly assures her that she has nothing to worry about that everything she is asking for is already done and taken care of and that everything is ready to go for orientation day. Monica hangs up the phone relieved knowing that everything is going accordingly to plan. Once Carl hangs up the phone and starts digging through his new hire files that huge smile that he had in his face went away, it completely disappeared. His eyes grew big and his nostrils opened up and his heart started pounding as he began to sweat cold. Carl had then realized that ¾ of his new hires didn’t have an application completed. Some employees only had their first and last name on their application along with a contact number but some employees didn’t even have a contact number some just had an email address or others just a home address with no other contact info. Carl had personally......
