The Electric Vehicle - 1,625 words
The technology of electric vehicles has been around since the turn of the nineteenth century but faded as the gasoline powered engine took the spotlight. Now the future of electric vehicles is very bright. Their impacts are very significant ranging from economic, to new technology that can be applied elsewhere, to most importantly, the environment. Ford and GM, through its Saturn plant, have already begun production on their own version of the electric vehicle and have made them available to the public. In 1998 California plans to have one percent of its major auto makers sell electric vehicles and other states have looked into the same possibility, mainly Massachusetts and New York. Imagine ...

Grief Patterns In Children - 2,175 words
... the child. With the role of culture, the society's mores are about death, how it should be handled, and how inclusive the child should be all have bearing on how the child views death. The reason of death also effects a child, including how that child was interacted with the death process. Rando points to the fact that children are naturally curious about the cause of death and 'the death surround,' or those specific causes, are taken into account by the child when assessing their loss.

Since most children are anxious regarding their personal vulnerability, this cause is grounds for an raised con ...

The Narcissists Mother - 5,125 words
... ng emotional data). It is also dependent on the relationship between the representations of the Self and real, external, "objective" Objects. Add to this instinctual conflicts related both to the Libido and to aggression (these very strong emotions give rise to strong conflicts in the child) and a comprehensive explanation concerning the formation of pathological Narcissism emerges. Kernberg's concept of Self is closely related to Freud's concept of Ego. The Self is dependent upon the unconscious, which exerts a constant influence on all mental functions. Pathological Narcissism, therefore, reflects a libidinal investment in a pathologically structured Self and not in a normal, integrati ...

Sigmund Freud: His Life And His Work - 1,491 words
... ng to Freud, sexual pleasure. The discovery of our body is organized through our first experiences of sexual pleasure. Freud symbolicaly divides the body in erotogenic zones to explain the development of the experience of a childs discovery of his or her body. These zones are the oral, the anal, and the phallic.

The oral stage is associated with incorporation, with taking in things, with knowing no boundaries between self and others and between the inside and the outside. The anal stage is associated with expelling things, with learning boundaries between inside and outs ...

On Narcissism: Psychological Theories And Therapeutic Interventions In The Narcissistic Disorders - 1,359 words
Introduction Understanding the Narcissistic Phenomenon The so called 'narcissistic personality disorder' is a complex and often misunderstood disorder. The cardinal feature of the narcissistic personality is the grandiose sense of self importance, but paradoxically underneath this grandiosity the narcissist suffers from a chronically fragile low self esteem. The grandiosity of the narcissist, however, is often so pervasive that we tend to dehumanize him or her. The narcissist conjures in us images of the mythological character Narcissus who could only love himself, rebuffing anyone who attempted to touch him. Nevertheless, it is the underlying sense of inferiority which is the real problem o ...

The Use Of Technology In The Curriculum - 641 words
The use of technology in the curriculum is based on the needs of the children, the focus of the curriculum, and whether the technology will add to children's educational opportunities and experiences. The age of the child and his or her developmental stage must be taken into account when considering computer use. Two important questions need to be asked when introducing young children to anything new, including technology: Is it developmentally appropriate is it consistent with how a child develops and learns, and with the child's current developmental stage? For very young children the answers to these questions are usually "no." Computer use for most children under age three does not have ...
