2.1 Who are the paraprofessionals?

So who are the paraprofessionals in the UK and, given the relatively recent need for their labour, where have they come from? As we noted earlier, the great majority of paraprofessionals are women. Between 1995 and 2004, The Open University trained some 3775 teaching assistants through its specialist teacher assistant (STA) course. Many of the women were mothers, and only 37 (about 1 per cent) were male. Heather Wakefield (2003), head of local government liaison at UNISON, emphasises the link

1.4.7 Case study 4: The death of Meg – a home death

Meg was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 28, shortly after the birth of her second child, a diagnosis which was changed to systemic lupus erythematosis (usually called SLE or lupus), ten years later. This is a rare chronic degenerative condition, which mostly presents in mild forms, but in Meg’s case the condition was severe.

When Meg was first diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis she was devastated and contemplated suicide, mostly because she was afraid of losing her

1.4.4 Case study 1: Vic Harris – a hospital death

Vic had been on Crawford Ward for two weeks and was feeling very concerned that he was not making any progress. Previously he had experienced quite a marked improvement after a few days’ treatment but this time, instead of improving, his breathlessness and lethargy were getting worse and

4.2 Using antidepressants for grief

In addition to tranquilisers, antidepressant medication may be considered when a person approaches a doctor for help following bereavement. Prescribing doctors may feel under pressure to ‘do something’ to help the person who presents to them. Neither party may be aware of other options that may be effective in helping in these potentially difficult situations. Indeed, local support groups, psychotherapy, counselling and other possible alternatives may not be readily available.

3.8 Summary

  • Because the subject matter of psychology (ourselves and non-human animals) is complex and reactive, psychologists have to choose from amongst a wide range of methods.

  • Psychologists make use of methods that aim to maximise objectivity; they also use methods that focus on and explore subjectivities and meanings.
