Over the last decades, and clearly in the 21st century, a new consumer culture has emerged characterized by clients' different expectations about their relationships with their medical and mental health providers. Managed care organizations, which proliferated in the 1990s have popularized the idea that clients or patients are, in fact, consumers of medical and mental health services. As consumers, they have numerous rights and, of course, power (Sarkar, 2009). Unlike most medical subspecialties, most psychotherapists have failed to recognize this shift; that many of those whom psychotherapists have habitually called 'clients' or 'patients' consider themselves to be consumers first. As consumers, they want to know what they are getting for their money, whether it is a car, a house, a cruise, jewelry, or a psychotherapist. They are often well informed about their treatment options and range of providers. With the aid of the Internet, they learn about their conditions and what treatments are available. These modern, informed consumers take increased interest, responsibility, and control of their wellbeing. In terms of psychotherapy, this shift often results in many modern day consumers demanding in-depth information, i.e. transparency, about those providing them with care and expecting to be presented with a range of treatment options from which to choose. Obviously, the Internet is the well from which they draw most of their information in the 21st century (Zur, 2007a; 2008b). Needless to say, in the identity shift from patient or client to informed and entitled consumer and from psychotherapist to provider, the client has gained a significant amount of power. In light of these profound shifts, seeing many modern clients as helpless, dependent, or powerless is, at best, out of touch.

When I was 13 I was raped by my dads best friend… That led to me Alcohol.. That led to a life of insain sexual, mental and self abuse. Pregnant at 16, married at 18 and 3 more children. My marrage failed 14 years later. By the time I was 38 I finally seaked out and got help. Thank god my children forgave me in their adulthood for the life I led.

So why is Keonu Reeves life sooooooo tragic???????

Thousands of juveniles are currently confined with adults in detention and correctional facilities throughout the United States. Juveniles confined in adult facilities face grave dangers to their safety and well-being, including significantly higher rates of physical assault, sexual abuse, and suicide than their counterparts in juvenile facilities. These dangers and other conditions of juvenile confinement with adults give rise to concerns of constitutional dimension. In its Eighth Amendment jurisprudence, the United States Supreme Court has created categorical rules prohibiting the imposition of certain punishments on entire categories of offenders as cruel and unusual punishment. The Court’s 2010 decision in Graham v. Florida, in which it held that a sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole violates the Eighth Amendment when applied to juveniles convicted of nonhomicide offenses, and its 2012 decision in Miller v. Alabama, in which it held that mandatory life-without-parole sentencing schemes violate the Eighth Amendment when applied to juveniles, open the door to challenge the constitutionality of the confinement of juveniles with adults.

Ethical Dilemmas In Prison And Jail Health Care

Reynolds is being assisted by both her own organization and the American Civil Liberties Union, which filed an amended motion to quash a March 2009 subpoena that the parties claim infringes upon Reynolds' right to free speech and represents a gross misuse of the grand jury system. Unfortunately, as AP states, "U.S. District Judge Julie Robinson rejected [in early June] the ACLU's motion asking the judge to reconsider an earlier ruling declining to quash the subpoenas." In short, Treadway's subpoenas remain valid despite Reynolds' and the ACLU's efforts to dismiss them, and - though she has not yet - Reynolds will likely be forced at some point to comply with them.
