We think of addiction and we automatically reference methamphetamine and cocaine. In this case, the television series, Scandal, has not only drawn our attention, it has manifested into an addiction that draws in television watchers from multiple demographics in the United States. Have you noticed the arousal that spreads on your Facebook We…yes me as well, are closely following Scandal’s Facebook page to interpret what will happen on each episode. Are you referring Thursday nights as Scandal nights, and have your alcoholic beverage ready until Scandal graces your wide screen television? There is a population of women and men who were torn to pieces after the season finale. I almost died thinking about the long hiatus we have to endure until fall. This is just not fair. These actors and actresses don’t need a break. We are suffering an addiction that will resort to watching season’s one and two on Amazon until we are graced with the suspense of our Scandal.
Have you ever work with hard core co-workers who were hell bent on making your life a living hell. Well I have had the honor to experience this for the first time. I have always had great supervisors until working at this particular agency. They are a very odd group, but I thought maybe I could try to get along with them. I was totally wrong about that. Effing Bi!ches!

I recently resigned from a job after two years of hell on earth. It was the epitome of psychological warfare. As a professional woman, I have never been subjected to such unprofessional idiots since I began my career in social services. The strategic planning of firing employees they don’t like is ridiculous and childish. Additionally, the absence of compassion was deafening. Every single day I wanted to claw their eyes, but instead I did what I was told like a good little disgruntled employee. Let me introduce you to two main idiots who were totally stank and rather irritating, and resorted in me planning how to bring them and their company down.
THE BOSS: A narcissistic butt hole who has absolutely no facial expressions and has to announce when she is excited. And lets talk about her being a compulsive liar. She is the ultimate strategist, and will lie repeatedly to get what she wants. Get this, she looks like the characters from Charlie Brown.
THE IDIOT: This person is quit similar to the compulsive liar above, but she isn’t smart enough to be a strategist. I can describe her in two words: utterly imbecilic. In contrast to THE BOSS, she has one specific mood that often makes her co-workers want to leap off the nearest cliff. She can only appear depressed. Where is the happiness? How can someone be such a b!tch and work in the social services industry. I’m pretty sure that families that she serve are so tired of sadness and bitterness, they may also join her co-works over a cliff.
In conclusion, no matter how angry I feel toward the idiots at my previous workplace, revenge is something I have thought about, but would never do. I do have standards. But that doesn’t mean I can’t dream about getting revenge. In the end this rant means nothing, because it all leads back to the children. The scare crow looking as$ president was right about that, it is about maintaining the safety of children. But lets add this into the mix; the president looks like a raggedy Ann doll who had smoked too many cigarettes. I’m just saying!!!
Psychology is a heterogeneous discipline that permeates all aspects of our social and professional lives. Recently, I researched the branches of psychology and was pleasantly surprised to find Occupational Health Psychology. If you have ever analyzed the dynamics of your work environment, I assume you have noticed the social and psychological components involved in this minute, yet substantive subculture. Work environments are encompassed with a myriad of characteristics such as politics, positions of power, personality traits, and mental health issues that could literally drive you crazy.
I have worked with some seriously unstable persons in positions of power who demonstrate innumerable flaws in their personality and social capabilities, ultimately affecting the stability of the work place. Everyday we nervously anticipate the arrival of the human resource director and company executive, also known as the Grim Reapers, to lay off another social worker, picking us off like flies or cattle, or however you want to phrase it. Their arrival dissipates any hope of career longevity. As the Grim Reapers malevolently dismantle a burgeoning group of peers, we are invariably plagued with anxiety and in some cases, depression. As we are symbolically gutted like fish, another person (who I frequently refer to as the Narcissistic Troll), snidely smiles, rejoicing that her sinister, yet brilliantly executed strategy of closing an entire office of dedicated social workers has succeeded… excerpt from e-book
The definitive cause of ODD is unknown, but researchers have questioned the importance of environmental and genetic factors in the development of conduct disorders. As an experienced social worker, I have concluded that environmental factors are significant amplifiers when adolescents reside in foster care
Through my doctoral journey, I have invested in research into the foster care system and the behaviors of teenagers who have resided in several foster homes. There is an unending anger present so strong that the aggression and anguish is felt and contagious to other foster children.
The most prevalent population that I have experienced involving ODD/CD are male teenagers who were separated from their fathers by incarceration, or their mothers due to drug addiction. Is it hard to assume that these adolescents are angry because they feel powerless and out of contr
ol? There are no guarantees in foster care, which conclusively degrades the feelings of security and hope for the future.
Lets take a stand and mentor our youth about a society that has so much to offer. It is time for disconnected parents to put their children first. Just say yes to loving and protecting your children

The political system in this country has morphed into a dysfunctional entity being held captive by politicians driven by money, power, and creating their version of the American dream. Conflicting ideologies inhibit the country from moving forward, and from benefiting from a properly functioning government. Indubitably, politics is the antecedent to disunion on account of race, religion, socioeconomic status, and sexual orientation.
The advancement of technology and the ability to communicate instantaneously through brilliantly formulated communicative inventions provides access to a mirage of political information. Interactive platforms such as YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook provides a prodigious database for information gathering opportunities. Considering this information, exactly why are so many Americans misinformed about politics? The answer to this question is quite intelligible. Politics can be considered analogous to religion, and cultural norms; party affiliation is often generational, being passed from parent to child.
Politicians serve as the voice of the people, the voice of their constituents. Consequentially, when they occupy their specific office, the voice of the people fade away and catering to lobbyist whose sole purpose is to benefit the wealthiest of Americans becomes their main priority.
Remember when George W. Bush was re-elected, and democrats everywhere were intensely consumed with despondency? Republicans and Democrats are alike and different simultaneously. The two parties are similar in the sense that they both represent the interests of their constituency, ultimately expecting to be reelected. However the ideology surrounding of these two parties are completely opposite of one another..Excert from E-BOOK.
