This paper will review Lin article, Effects of Forgiveness Therapy on Anger, Mood, and Vulnerability to Substance use among Inpatient Substance-dependent Clients, and critic population of the study vs. population of interest, Operationalization aspects, Evaluation of DV measurement, and Evaluation of DV measurement. Lin, Wei-Fen. Mack, D, Enright, R, Krahn Dean, &Thomas Baskin (2004), states that the level of anger and violence observed among alcohol and substance abusers are far higher than the levels found in the general population, and coping skills have been implemented in many substance abuse programs to teach patients how to become aware of their anger and also manage their emotions effectively. Many researchers have directed their focus on Forgiveness Therapy (FT) as an alternative option to any other treatment for patients to overcome their emotional bondage, which leads them to misuse alcohol and dependency to controlled substances. The hypothesis in this study is that Forgiveness Therapy decreases the frequency and severity of anger, anxiety, and depression, and patients in residential treatment for alcohol and drug dependency have demonstrated less anger and urge towards drug use after receiving this treatment.

...Lin Article Critique: Part 3 Dustin T. Rheel Liberty University Counseling 503, D22 Professor Carlene Taylor December 9, 2012 Percentages are reported widely in academic journals to support a researcher’s findings. The percentages or numbers are utilized either support or reject the hypothesis. When a researcher does not utilize numbers or percentages whiting researcher it tends to mislead individuals who are reading the article. The Lin article started with 40 participants in the beginning of the study and by the end of the study they were left with 14 participants (Lin, Mack, Enright, Krahn, and Baskin article, 2004). The post test results examined the reaming 14 participants, seven in the experimental group and seven in the controlled group. Four months after the experiment, six of the experimental group remained available for follow up testing. In the controlled group only four participants were available for the same follow up testing. Lin et al. (2004) noted that during the research process participation varied among both the experimental and controlled groups. When reviewing the article it was noted that Line et al. (2004) did not distinguish between the pre-test scores and the post-test scores, making it difficult to compare the pre and post test results. When assessing whether the reader is able to understand the data presented, it is shown to be misleading to the readers. This is due to the inconsistent data. In addition some of the percentages......

Lin Article

... | | Lin Title and Introduction Article Critique This article is based on the potential benefits of forgiveness therapy. The authors, Lin et al, show interest in forgiveness therapy for inpatient substance-dependent clients and whether it will help to reduce anger, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, forgiveness, and vulnerability to drug use. Lin et al noticed that the level of anger and violence was higher in alcohol and other substance abusers in comparison to the general population, as recorded in previous studies. It is believed that certain triggers, anger and frustration, can cause relapse in both intrapersonal and interpersonal areas (Marlatt, 1985). Lin et al reviews previous study results based on the typical alcohol and drug therapy (Cognitive-Behavior therapy) where the participants are encouraged to be aware of their anger but not necessarily to decrease their anger or negative emotions. However, one study conducted by Reilly and Shopshire showed a decrease in levels of anger and an increase in anger control with a group of Pos -traumatic Stress disorder patients. The article refers to a group of researchers who have worked towards developing a new therapeutic approach to anger termed forgiveness therapy. They believe that unforgiveness can become problematic.

The group of researchers consisted of Wei-Fen Lin, David Mack, Robert Enright, Dean Krahn, and Thomas Baskin came together to gather more information in forgiveness therapy focusing on certain targets such as anger, anxiety, and depression. The group of researchers gathered 14 patients with substance dependence and began weekly alternative individual treatment sessions with each client. After the time frame for the study had ended there was a four month period that showed the positive effects of forgiveness therapy. As stated within the article, “Forgiveness therapy may prove effective in the future because it moves to the heart of the matter of some clients. Deep hurts borne out of unfair treatment seem to play a part in substance use and abuse,” (Lin, Mack, Enright, Krahn, Baskin, 1119). The group of researchers recruited the population for this study from a drug rehabilitation center that offers intense, structured, residential treatment to individual suffering from alcohol and other drug dependencies. There were forty-three potential......

Theories of Presidential Power Under Article Ii of the Constitution

...December 2, 2011 US Politics POLISCI 101.08 Theories of Presidential Power Under Article II of the Constitution When first researching the topic for this paper, I found many interesting theories about implied presidential powers. There are many people out there with interesting theories, but I will summarize only three that I found fascinating to me. The first is a theory by Richard Neustadt who believes that Presidents have the power to persuade. The next, a theory by Samuel Kernell, theorizes the presidential powers in terms of “going pubic.” The last theory I will summarize, a theory by Stephen Skowronek, theorizes the president’s implied powers in terms of political time. Richard Neustadt’s theory of power to persuade is an interesting one. His theory serves as one of the most documented well-known theories of presidential power. As well as being a political scientist, he also served as an advisor for many United States Presidents. In his theory, he states that presidents cannot lead directly. If they really want something done, they cannot do it by themselves the power of the United States government is vastly dispersed and the president cannot, by himself, command and receive. Its much more complicated than that. Other levels of government have different constituencies and different sources of power and interest. The president is one individual and needs others to get things done. Neustadt states that presidential power is a “function of his or her ability......

...Running head: LIN ARTICLE CRITIQUE 1 Article Critique Effects of Forgiveness Therapy on Anger, Mood, and Vulnerability to Substance Abuse Among Inpatient Substance-Dependent Clients Liberty University C. Campbell March 31, 2013 LIN ARTICLE CRITIQUE 2 Introduction In the article Effects of Forgiveness Therapy on Anger, Mood and Vulnerability to Substance Use Among Inpatient Substance-Dependent Clients (Lin 2004) the researchers wanted to test Forgiveness Therapy (FT) as a tool for treating clients dealing with substance abuse related to negative emotional overload. They focused on anxiety, depression and anger which, according to Lin, are triggers for substance abuse (2004, pg. 1114). They set out to talk and interview forty three potential participants who were recommended by their counselors from a residential drug rehabilitation center. This population was chosen due to the rigid course of treatment they were already receiving from the treatment facility in response to the personal calamity being experiences by the client. These were the most severe cases since they usually experienced repeated relapses, petty crimes and a lower motivation for change. While conducting the research what they found was not really surprising but rather normal for this group of clients. The participation started to fall off and by the end of the research they had fallen to less than half of the......

The Critics Corner

...The Critics Corner Roger Ebert a prolific movie critic, had this to say about “Citizen Kane,” “Citizen Kane” is more than a great movie; it is a gathering of all the lessons of the emerging era of sound, just as “Birth of a Nation” assembled everything learned at the summit of the silent era, and “2001” pointed the way beyond narrative (Ebert, 1998).” I most certainly agree with Mr. Ebert on this movie does begin to break into the categories not yet truly explored in movies sound and special effects. However being a child and growing up in the age of “Star Wars” and most recently “Avatar” I found myself losing interest quickly. “For the first time in the American cinema, the very process of telling a story on film became every bit as tricky and exhilarating as the story itself”, said columnist Owen Gleiberman. (Gleiberman, 1991) Certainly agree with the columnist here the story itself although to me took a moment to unfold at the end became a lot more plain for the viewers. Citizen Kane proved to be a slightly difficult movie to watch not because the acting was horrible or the movie production was awful but more because it was not what I was accustomed to. The movie started a little slow with the introduction of the main character in what almost seemed like a very early slide show. The takeaway from the movie as opposed to what Mr. Ebert stated in his review I believe is to see how far we have come as a movie going and producing society. The movie was a......

...(undisclosed) excessive markups, ruling that a broker-dealer has a duty to disclose markups on municipal bonds where those markups are deemed "excessive." In 1994 and 1995, in three separate transactions, plaintiffs bought three sets of municipal bonds from registered broker-dealer Merrill, Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Inc. In 1996, plaintiffs brought an action against Merrill Lynch in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, alleging that Merrill Lynch had charged excessive markups on these transactions of 4.6 percent, 6.3 percent and 3.7 percent to 9.74 percent, respectively. Plaintiffs asserted that Merrill Lynch committed securities fraud by: (i) charging excessive markups by imposing inflated prices and fees; (ii) failing to disclose either the "true market price" of the bonds or the amount of the markups; and (iii) making implied misrepresentations or omissions by sending plaintiffs confirmation statements without disclosing the prevailing market prices or the amount of fees charged. Plaintiffs also asserted pendent state law claims for breaches of contract and fiduciary duty. Merrill Lynch moved to dismiss the complaint. The district court granted Merrill Lynch's motion to dismiss, on the ground that Merrill Lynch was not required to disclose the markups. Although the district court believed the size of the markups was significant and presumed reliance on the part of plaintiffs, it nonetheless held that Merrill Lynch had no statutory......

The twentieth century has seen more common and radical social transformation than any other time in history, the labor and politics of the developed countries now are completely different in terms of processes, problems and structures from the past century. In his article, in the first part of it, it is explained that the work-force, society and politics has change qualitative and quantitatively. Changes occurred from the farmers and domestic servant. Before World War I, Farmers are the largest group compare to servants. Farmers and domestic servants were everywhere.

Article Ii of the Uniform Commercial Code

...Article II of the Uniform Commercial Code PA130- Contracts Unit 9 Carolyn Padilla Article II of the Uniform Commercial Code is for the sale of goods such as an automobile or a television. A house would be ok except it involves the sale of land which is not covered by article 2, and it also does not cover a contract between you and a fee for service contract, such as wanting an addition put on your house for example. Generally to use this code all parties must act in good faith or this will not be recognized by the courts and you will not be protected by the UCC Article II. The contract must be fair and if not the court may find the contract “unconscionable” There is a broad scope for this is not extremely strict and is looked at on a case by case analysis. If the court finds that the contract is not fair it may void the contract altogether or enforce the contract taking out the unfair part of the contract. In most situations the merchant is the one who has to show it is a fair and “ unconscionable” contract. This specific article also includes the statute of frauds in which a sale of goods over $500 is involved. Here is example of Article II UCC enforceable contracts: Summary of Lefkowitz v.
