AbstractTreball Final de Màster Universitari en Rehabilitació Psicosocial en Salut Mental Comunitària. Codi: SAX014. Curs: 2017/2018.
Self-care is a concept composed of several elements such as motivation and
empowerment. Mindfulness is currently included in several so-called third-generation
psychological therapies, but this practice was rescued from the Buddhist tradition. This
study reviews existing literature to verify the relationship between self-care and
Mindfulness. This review also identifies the benefits and adverse effects of Mindfulness
practice. Finally, we examine how this practice affects our brain. In the review
conducted there is no clear and evident link that implies that the practice of Mindfulness
increases the practice of self-care, even though there are shared elements between selfcare and Mindfulness. Regarding the effects identified by the practice of Mindfulness,
there are studies that identify short-term benefits, although some adverse effects may
also arise simultaneously; Regarding the long-term effects, other research reveals that if this practice is prolonged over time, variations in brain structures can develop leading to
a change in the trait of the person.
El autocuidado es un concepto compuesto por varios elementos como son la
motivación y el empoderamiento. Mindfulness en la actualidad se incluye en varias
terapias psicológicas denominadas de tercera generación, pero esta práctica fue
rescatada de la tradición budista. Este estudio revisa bibliografía existente para
comprobar la relación entre autocuidado y Mindfulness. Con esta revisión también se
identifican los beneficios y efectos adversos de la práctica del Mindfulness. Finalmente
se examina la forma en que esta práctica afecta a nuestro cerebro. En la revisión
realizada no existe un nexo claro y evidenciado que implique que la práctica del
Mindfulness aumente la práctica de autocuidado, aún así existen elementos compartidos
entre el autocuidado y Mindfulness. En cuanto a los efectos identificados por la práctica
de Mindfulness hay estudios que identifican unos beneficios a corto plazo, aunque
también pueden surgir simultáneamente algunos efectos adversos; en cuanto a los
efectos a largo plazo otras investigaciones revelan que si esta práctica se prolonga en el
tiempo se pueden producir unas variaciones en las estructuras cerebrales desarrollando
un cambio de rasgo de la persona.

For adult children, parents are important in instrumental supports. And siblings are hardly regarded as expected supporters.
Exploring Psychosocial Well-being and Social Connectedness in Northern UgandaHorn, Rebecca (World Bank, Washington, DC, 2014-04-16)This paper describes research conducted
as the first stage in the process of developing a structured
interview schedule to assess psychological distress,
empowerment, social connectedness, economic well-being, and
other variables among women in the Acholi region of Uganda.
An interview schedule was developed following a review of
the literature, individual interviews with women in northern
Uganda, and group discussions with community members,
members of women's groups, and community leaders.
Following initial testing of the entire interview schedule,
the reliability and validity of two sections-measures of
psychological distress and social connectedness, were
explored in more detail. Initial analysis suggests that both
are potentially useful with this population. However, the
measure of psychological distress did not distinguish
clearly between a group of women identified by a local
community-based organization (CBO) as showing signs of
psychological distress and a group of women showing no such
signs. Additional work is required to confirm the validity
of the psychological distress scale used. It was found that
psychological well-being was more closely associated with
the amount of social support a woman receives than with how
many social activities or groups she is involved with.
Involvement in groups may not, in itself, alleviate
psychological distress, but the practical and emotional
support provided by friends, neighbors, and relatives is
likely to have a positive effect. Some evidence was found
that there is a relationship between involvement in
religious activities and psychological well-being.
Psychological distress is often accompanied by poor physical
health. Although further research is required to clarify the
nature of these relationships, initial findings suggest that
organizations that aim to improve psychological well-being
would do well to address physical health problems as a
priority, and may wish to explore ways in which women
experiencing psychological distress could link with
A model for empowerment of families with mentally handicapped childrenMavundla, T.R. (Prof.); Kgole, Jermina Chuene (2010-09-15)The purpose of this study was to develop an empowerment model for families of mentally handicapped children in Moletši district in Limpopo Province. To achieve this purpose, the study consisted of four steps, namely exploring the meaning of empowerment in the context of families with mentally handicapped children; developing and describing a model for empowerment of such families; formulating guidelines for the implementation of the model, and evaluating the implementation of the model. A qualitative, explorative, descriptive and contextual theory-generative design was used. The population of the study was all families who had mentally handicapped children in Moletši district of the Polokwane and Aganang municipalities. Semi-structured interviews, assessment guides and case studies were conducted with the families to evaluate the effectiveness of the model and whether the families reached self-efficacy in the care, treatment and rehabilitation of their mentally handicapped children. Non-probability, purposive sampling was used in order to obtain relevant information from the correct participants. Concepts were identified and analysed, which led to the development of the model for empowerment of families with mentally handicapped children. The model was applied in practice, where the families’ problems were identified and planned for, and the plans were put into action by means of case studies, and monitoring and evaluation was done through observation, interviews, discussion and meetings.The results revealed that the families proved to be independent and reached self-efficacy in the care, treatment and rehabilitation of their mentally handicapped children. The model is a unique contribution to nursing education, research, administration and practice and sets guidelines for a new field in the practice of psychiatric nursing.
