Example text

It is helpful here to consider who this man is. AD presents as an extremely self-reliant man who likes to feel that he is in total control. He can be cantankerous, single-minded, sceptical and suspicious. He holds fixed beliefs about things and has a strong sense of duty and traditional role values. He is determined and courageous as well as fragile and vulnerable. He requires straight answers to straight questions and does ‘not suffer fools’. In 1964 he fell 38 feet, suffered a crush fracture and walked 7 miles to the nearest hospital because he did not want to ‘bother anyone’.

However, there may be differential effects with behavioural programmes – for example, reducing medication use and increasing activity. A review by Turner and Chapman (1982) concluded that although these methods are used in PMPs there is little direct evidence to support the assumptions on which they are practised, namely that they reduce muscle tension and lower arousal. Furthermore the reasons why these treatments are effective are poorly understood but it may be that they provide an extra resource and/or increase an individual’s perception of control and coping.

They include such things as heart rate, dizziness, shaking, muscle tension, sweating, breathing, ‘butterflies’, headaches, pain and so forth. • Environment. This is anything external to individuals both from their past and in their present. Environmental influences include family, culture, gender, neighbours, religion and media. It also includes learned beliefs and expectations that we have about our environment as these have been formed by the aspects of our environment. In essence we do not exist in a bubble isolated from the impact of the world around us and the world around us can have a profound impact on our internal world (thoughts and feelings) and behaviour.
