For this task I had to select an individual for my assignment and describe their physical, intellectual, emotional and social development for each of their life stages. The individual I have chosen is Michael Jackson, I have chosen him because I think that his life was very interesting and I’d like to explore all the other aspects of this life. I will need explain what I think could/should happen to Michael Jackson at each life stage.

Conception
Michael Jacksons parents Katherine Jackson and Joe Jackson would have conceived Michael around about November 1957.Conception is the making of a new beginning of life , now each women should be born with a full functioning birth system sometimes when a women does not function properly she may not be able to have children and conceive. Each month hormones are released such as follicle stimulating hormone and estrogen, these hormones help follicles develop and help the uterus to get thick and to get prepared for the fertilization of an egg. Each egg leaves the woman’s ovaries and it goes into the fallopian tube, then after this process it gets travelled through to the uterus. It all starts during intercourse, when a man has intercourse with a woman he inserts sperm into her vagina about 250 million sperms would have been ejaculated into the vagina. Every sperm looks the same as it has a long tall to enable it to swim and force itself up to the fallopian tube. This is where all the magic happens in the woman fallopian tube, the tube is about 10 cm long and here is where fertilization of an egg takes place. The distance for the sperm to travel through the vagina then to the uterus and into the fallopian tube for some can only takes hours but sperm can survive in the vagina for about 3-6 days that is why they say it can take up to 6 days for an egg to be fertilized, most eggs only last for 10-24 hours after an ovulation so…...

During the manic phase of this disorder, the patient may show excessive, unwarranted excitement or silliness, carrying jokes too far. They may also show poor judgement and recklessness and may be argumentative. They may speak rapidly, have unrealistic ideas, and jump from subject to subject. They may not be able to sleep or sit still for very long. These symptoms are last for a specific period of time lasting for a few days or even a few months. Hospitalization can often be necessary to keep the person from harming themselves and others. The other side of the bipolar is the depressive episode. Bipolar depressed patients often sleep more than usual and are lethargic. This contrasts with those with major depression, who usually has trouble sleeping and is agitated. During bipolar depressive episodes, a patient may also show irritability and withdrawal. Manic episodes can occur without depression, but this is very rare. DEPRESSIVE DISORDERS A person suffering from major depressive disorder is in a depressed mood...

...Discuss the nature-nurture debate in relation to the development of the individual (M1) & Evaluate how nature and nurture may affect the physical, intellectual, emotional and social development of two stages of the development of the individual (D1). Nature can be loosely defined as genetic inheritance or the genetic makeup (the information encoded in your genes) which a person inherits from both parents at the time of conception and carries throughout life. Several things in an individual genetically inherits include; ranging from gender, eye colour, risks for certain diseases and exceptional talents to height. The concept of nature thus refers to biologically inherited tendencies and abilities that people have and which may get revealed later on as they grow up. Nurture can be defined as the different environmental factors to which a person is subjected from birth to death. There are many environmental factors. They include both physical environments and social environments. Some theorists believe that people behave as they do according to genetic predispositions or even because of ‘animal instincts.’ This is known as the ‘nature’ theory of human behaviour. Other theorists believe that people think and behave in certain ways because they are taught to do so. This is known as the ‘nurture’ theory of human behaviour. (www.yourenglishlessons.wordpress.com) Nature refers to the inherited (genetic) characteristics and tendencies that influence development. Some......

...Developing Effective Communication in Health and Social Care – Task 4 One-to-One In class, I participated in a one-to-one role-play with a fellow classmate. I played as a teacher and my peer played as a student who was being socially excluded by her classmates. She came to me one day really upset and explained that she was being socially excluded from the rest of the class. I suggested we go to a quiet room where we could talk by ourselves and I had to consider my approach carefully as I didn’t want to upset her even more. As part of my course, my class and I had to participate in a group event called Christmas cheer. This included us getting into groups to cook food which would be served to the elderly. We first had to decide what groups we would be in and this was done very easily and quickly This included our class getting into small groups and cooking food which the elderly would be served during this event. I was partnered up with four girls from my class who on several occasions I had to have a group discussion with. The first discussion we had to do is to discuss what we were going to cook. One of the girls decided to do scones whilst a few others wanted to do a gingerbread house. We finally decided on welsh cakes and then had to find a recipe for them. All of us found a recipe which we thought would be appropriate and they decided on a Mary Berry recipe as she was a famous cook. Me and one of the other girls was not happy about this as most people......

...P3: Explain the influences of two predictable and two unpredictable major life events on the development of an individual. Our lives can be influenced by many different things. A life event can change the direction of our lives; they even have the ability to affect our own personal development. Some can be major changes where as others are just minor. Some of these can be predicted and we know that they are going to eventually happen where as other times they are something we cannot choose, these are unpredictable life events. Some of the predictable life events could be: starting school, starting a job, or retiring from work. These stages come into our lives one by one and then help us to move our lives to the next stage. Unpredictable life events often have more of an impact on us and these can also alter both our development and/or behavior. An example of some unpredictable life events could be: suddenly becoming ill, being made redundant from work or the sudden death of a relative or loved one. All of these life events can occur very suddenly and are often very sad, but once the grieving process is over we can realise a difference in our lives which can then go on to have a positive impact on our lives even though it was initially a negative effect. Leaving home is seen as a predictable life event as it is an inevitable action; although this can also impact an individual's development. Leaving home could have a negative impact on the physical development of an......

...For this part of the assignment I am going to be evaluating how nature and nurture may affect the development of an individual over two life stages. I will be looking at the effects of nature, nurture in relation to the Jim twins, development over their childhood and adulthood. D1 Nature and Nurture Effects on Childhood Physical Development The Jim twins were identical twins and nature obviously had a big effect on how they looked, both the boys inherited genetics from their parents which determined what they were going too looked like, during their childhood the boys would have looked identical, but they just didn’t know each other. But one twin in his childhood had a fringe and the other didn’t, these different hair styles would have been the effect of nurture as he would have been influenced to have his hair that way by seeing others with the same hairstyle or his adoptive parents wanting him to have his hair like that. Nature would have had an effect on the twin’s physical development as the genes they gathered from their biological parents would have determined that during their childhood, they disliked basketball and other sports, this could have been because, both their parents may not of been very sporty, which could of led them to inherit gene which meant they were going to be very athletic/sporty either.

...Saga Magazines... How does ageing affect you? MENOPAUSE The menopause, sometimes known as “the change of life”, is where a woman’s ovaries stop producing an egg every 4 weeks, meaning she no longer has periods and is unlikely to get pregnant. Monthly periods can sometimes stop suddenly when you reach the menopause; however it is more likely that your periods will become less frequent, with longer intervals between each one, before they stop altogether. In the UK, 51 is the average age for a woman to reach the menopause, although some women experience the menopause in their 30’s or 40’s. Symptoms The menopause can cause a wide range of physical and mental symptoms. The first symptom is usually a change in the pattern of your monthly periods. This is called the premenopausal stage, during this time you may have light or heavy periods (menorrhagia). Other symptoms can include: * Hot flushes and night sweats * Loss of libido (sex drive) * Headaches * Mood changes, such as depression, anxiety or tiredness * Urinary Tract Infections (UTI’s) * Noticeable heartbeat * Vaginal discomfort, pain, itching and dryness The severity of symptoms and the overall duration of the menopause will vary depending on a number of factors including genetics, lifestyle, diet, stress, and overall health. Although if you experience the menopause suddenly, rather than gradually, your symptoms may be worse. The menopause is caused by a change in the balance of the......

...Unit 7- sociological perspectives for health and social care P1 – Explain the principal sociological perspectives Sociological Perspectives | Main Points | Criticisms | Functionalism | Functionalist believe that just as the body functions through the efficient interrelationship of major organs and has disease, so the different institutions in society each have particular contributions to make. They work together and use methods of social control to deal with deviant members or groups, to ensure that society functions smoothly. Parsons (1902-1979) saw society as a system made up of interrelated institutions, which contributed to its smooth running and continuity. He thought that the main role of an institution is to socialise individuals and ensure that they understood the underlying values of their society and behave in acceptable ways. Murdock(1897-1985) did a study of the family, examined over 250 societies and concluded that in all societies the family performed 4 functions: * Sexual function which was allowed for the expression of sexuality in an approved context * Reproductive function which provided stability for the rearing children * Socialisation included the responsibility of teaching children the acceptable ways of behaving in society * Economic function meant that food, shelter, and financial security had to be provided for the family membersParsons(1951) argued that the family had only two basic functions which were: * The primary socialisation of......

...fghjklzxcvbnm HNC LEVEL 4 HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE COMMUNICATION IN HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE ORGANISATIONS 3/12/2013 By EVELYN HARRISON | HNC LEVEL 4 HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE TASK 2 2.1 Communication can be strongly influenced by people’s beliefs, cultures, sexuality, gender preferences, social classes, level of education and ethnicity. How people view each other will determine how people will respond/communicate with each other in and out of a workplace. At work it is always advised to be fully aware of our service users’ communication preferences and wishes. Having different cultural beliefs can have an impact on how we communicate with each other and also how we communicate with our service users. Therefore it is essential to know the service users’ values and culture background by reading care plans and talking and listening to them. When it comes to communication, a person’s beliefs can have an impact on how they interact with others. What might be deemed to be normal in one’s culture can be seen as inappropriate in another and different cultures interpret non-verbal and verbal messages and humour differently. For example maintaining eye contact English culture implies that one is paying attention to what is being said and they will be considered as being honest whereas in my culture it is seen as being disrespectful especially if talking to someone to is older than me. In health and social care it is important to know our......

This regulator has been approved an Accredited Register by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care which main aim is to protect the public. Therefore, they have met the authority’s demanding standards. All registered practitioners are entitled to use CNHC’s quality mark which is commitment to professionalism and high standards. Also, the GMC (General Medical Council) confirms that GP’s are able to refer patients to practitioners. (What is the CNHC Register?, 2016) The GRCCT register was released on 6th June 2008. GRCCT stands for the General Regulatory Council for Complementary Therapies. With the GRCCT, each profession has its own Voluntary Self-Regulatory Group which feeds into the GRCCT. This means that there are no laws put in place to protect the public from unqualified or incompetent therapists.

...Care settings are usually called residentials. There are many residential settings. Including those for elder people, or people with disabilities, and looked-after children. It is important that health and safety is taken very seriously in these settings. You have to be sure that any residents can escape in case of a fire. And you also have to make sure that they don't get in the way of other people or cause danger. It is important to inform peers and other residents about health and safety and what to do in case anything could go wrong. In some settings people can come in and go out whenever they want. But, in a setting where there are people who may be confused or young children, this would be inappropriate. It would be a bad idea because road traffic accidents could occur. If anyone is to go out the staff must know so that the individual can be brought back safely. Hospital Health care settings contain a lot of hazards. The hazards particular to the hospital include things like microbes infecting wounds during or after a surgery. There can also be radiation from x rays and radiotherapy and drugs which can be addictive . Another risk which can be found in a hospital is anesthetic gases these can be harmful if used in the wrong way so they should be carefully administered. Also hypodermic needles have to be disposed of safely or someone else can be infected. Fires can also cause problems in a health setting. Big organizations such as hospitals usually have zones......

Development Through the Life Stages Unit 4 P1 M1 D1 Health and Social Care Level 3

...Development through the life stages. UNIT 4 P1 M1 D1 Development through the life stages. UNIT 4 P1 M1 D1 * Introduction In this essay I will be explaining the development throughout the life stages. This is including conception, pregnancy (1st, 2nd and 3rd trimesters), birth and infancy (0-3years), childhood (4-9years), adolescence (10-18years), adulthood (19-65years), older adulthood (65+) and the final stages of life. This will include physical, intellectual, emotional and social development. I will further this by discussing nature versus nurture, and conclude by evaluating how this will affect the physical, intellectual, emotional and social development. * Conception Each month a group of eggs in the ovaries grow in small sacks named follicles. Eventually one of these eggs leaves, this is ovulation. This typically takes places 2 weeks before the next period is due. Once the egg leaves the follicle it develops into the corpus luteum, releasing a hormone to thicken the uterus lining, preparing for the egg. Once released the egg travels to the fallopian tube, where it remains for 24hrs waiting for sperm to fertilize it. This takes around 2 weeks after the period. If there is no sperm to fertilize the egg, it travels through the uterus and falls apart. The hormone levels return to normal, and the uterus sheds the lining, starting the period. If a sperm does make its way into the egg, it fertilizes, no other sperm will be able to access the egg. As soon as......
