“The [#biopsychosocial] model has been used as psychosocial model, to re-frame chronic health conditions (particularly those surrounded by medical controversy or uncertainty) into psychosocial entities, allegedly amenable to psychosocial healthcare interventions (contd)”

“(Contd) and thus to ‘recovery’ and re-entry into the labour market. Such health conditions could thus be largely exempted from welfare provision, private disability insurance protection & on-going biomedical care, reducing state expenditure in these areas (contd)”

Trigger warning- Will try keep this short. Uncovering the scale of medical gaslighting and corporate corruption. Who teaches our doctors to dismiss medically unexplained symptoms as hysteria?

She also developed the GAS-light model as way of determining which treatments were worth trialling ie cost effectiveness - gauging effectiveness based on patient set goals for graded assessment. If we set the goals, its not on them if the treatments aren't effective, it's on us. ImageImage

Hausaufgabe meiner Psychologin:

In die Altstadt gehen, mindestens 20 Minuten durch gefüllte Straßen laufe, sich Zeit lassen, achtsam sein, anschließend in einem Café etwas trinken. Klingt cool, oder?

Nein!
Was für die meisten Menschen wie ein normaler, schöner Nachmittag klingt
Bedeutet für mich maximalen Stress.

Bei dem Gedanken das zu planen, muss ich bereits beachten, in keine Panikgedanken zu verfallen.
An dem Tag selbst werde ich vor Anspannung kaum ansprechbar sein und in dem Moment in dem ich durch die Straßen gehe oder in einem Café
Sitze, werden in meinem Kopf Bilder und Szenarien ablaufen, die für viele surreal klingen mögen, für mich aber reale Angst und Panik bedeuten. Es kann passieren, dass ich 3x um das Café herumgehe, ehe ich mich traue, mich zu setzen, es kann auch passieren, daß

I am angry tweeting and usually that is never good but I am angry. My heart is breaking for another mother who lost their child to pain. She had her entire life in front of her. Her entire life! For many years she struggled with #pancreatitis. She was 1/
not in an area where there were many #physicians aware of #pancreatitis. I provided the mother names of experts in the field but sadly they never followed up or called. I have often seen this. As a parent I would carry around my husband & kids genetic 🧬 results 2/
in order to ensue that physicians would listen to me. I’d provide them with the names or our specialists. A few times physicians listened many times they did not. So often my husband was questioned about his alcohol use relentlessly EVEN with the test results. It was a 3/

Last call for the Thames Clippers RB1 service #VirtualTour! We're setting sail in this thread in one hour so take a seat, grab a hot drink from the onboard bar and get ready to sail through London in style (virtually) #VirtuallyLondon
As our service is currently suspended, all content shared has been captured prior to lockdown. #StayHomeStaySafe
As we depart Woolwich, on our way towards central London, we’re passing the Thames Barrier. One of the largest movable flood barriers in the world – it even has its own visitor centre! Image: Bill Green

1. En este hilo vamos a analizar las políticas fiscales (impuestos y gasto público) prometidas y las confrontaremos con lo que terminaron haciendo los gobiernos del @Frente_Amplio #CantandoLaPosta
2. Comencemos recordando que una de las afirmaciones más enérgicamente sostenidas por #Tabaré #Vázquez en la campaña anterior fue que no habría aumento de impuestos.

#CantandoLaPosta
3. No estuvo solo ese compromiso. Su futuro Ministro de Economía, el Cr. #Danilo #Astori, sostenía durante la campaña que no sólo no iban a subir los impuestos, sino que probablemente bajarían.

Unanimous support @BOSCityCouncil for @AnnissaForBos Resolution in support of @RepDanRyan amendment #1 to H.4730 the foundation budget bill. Of course, we must continue to revisit how #BPS dedicates & allocates its dollars but the fact remains,
We need more revenue & should not be forced to choose between a #BPS #school #nurse a #librarian or #paraprofessional for a #SPED classroom, or continue to underfund #MadisonPark H.S. These are unenviable & unfair choices.
We need an alignment of #BPS vision, priorities & financial investment AND we need more revenue. TY @AnnissaForBos @RepDanRyan @marty_walsh

(1/11) When I say..."The people closest to the pain, should be the closest to the power, driving & informing the policymaking..." THIS is what I mean. (A) When I wanted to break cycles of #poverty by strengthening pathways to #graduation, preventing #dropout #MA7
(2/11) for expectant & #parenting #teens, (still the #1 reason girls drop out, even with unplanned pregnancies on the decline) I invited them to the table to share their stories, struggles & to inform the #BPS policy we developed to better support them.
(3/11) (B) When I wanted to better understand why we were seeing an increase in #bicyclist & motor vehicle collisions, I contacted @bostonbikeunion I invited them to share their stories & struggles, 4 hrgs later, we had a crash data report & the 1st sideguard ord. in the country
