  1. A Feminist Approach to the Opioid Epidemic

    Are you asking my experiencing in working with them? I work in psychiatry, currently supervising an adult unit and geriatric unit. We do a little of everything, including a LOT of dual diagnosis. I've also done some other work in this area, as well,...
  2. A Feminist Approach to the Opioid Epidemic

    I think that's very fair and correct. Untreated pain can also easily lead to addiction issues that may have actually been prevented from properly managing it in the first place. Whether that's because they get them from the street in an effort to get...
  3. A Feminist Approach to the Opioid Epidemic

    It's not about saying: "I'm broken but you fix it." It's merely about taking an approach that isn't riddled with negatives preconceptions, working with the patient to identify a treatment plan that is tailored to them and the way to do this is therap...
  4. A Feminist Approach to the Opioid Epidemic

    Thanks for articulating the same questions I had, but I didn't want to get into another big debate.
  5. A Feminist Approach to the Opioid Epidemic

    In any case, I appreciate everyone's criticisms and will go back to the drawing board to evaluate some of these views. While I still hold these values as the most effective, with regards to empathy, communication, and openness, it seems the "feminis...
  6. A Feminist Approach to the Opioid Epidemic

    Just because I don't agree with you, doesn't mean I'm not open to your criticism. I wrote an article in which I argue that the current system is paternalistic, emphasizing things like willpower and personally responsibility in a way that may color pr...
  7. A Feminist Approach to the Opioid Epidemic

    "It is asinine to argue a given philosophical approach (feminism) is the cure by (comically) co-opting patient centered care as that philosophy applied when it may have also been the cause. " Eh, that's a strawman. First of all, just because an inter...
  8. A Feminist Approach to the Opioid Epidemic

    Hello HIS, thanks for your reply. I think you ask some fair questions and raise some good critiques, that I hope I can answer adequately for you. Well, at least I hope I can defend my position adequately. That doesn't mean I will convince you, but I ...
  9. A Feminist Approach to the Opioid Epidemic

    Once again, although the origins of the opioid epidemic may have taken place in the paternal system that I elaborate on, I do not posit that it is the causative agent BEHIND the opioid epidemic. That's simply a strawman. The entire point of the arti...
  10. A Feminist Approach to the Opioid Epidemic

    Empathy does not have an assigned sex, although many studies have concluded that women tend to experience empathy with more intensity. Of course we all have attributes regarded as feminine and masculine, but I wasn't describing people. I was describ...
  11. A Feminist Approach to the Opioid Epidemic

    Actually, as I said above, the nursing model isn't the problem. The medical problem, the domineering force in healthcare, largely is. There is a host of research into the paternal nature of the medical model. Secondly, I'm not an undergrad student. ...
  12. A Feminist Approach to the Opioid Epidemic

    I didn't claim it gave more validity. I was simply stating this fact, because people seemed to assume a female must've written this. Drug abuse has been rampant and in no way is correlated with the vague claim that male role models are less "strong"...
  13. A Feminist Approach to the Opioid Epidemic

    HAHA...No idea, they put the same one on another article I wrote. I imagine stock photos for substance abuse are lacking.
  14. A Feminist Approach to the Opioid Epidemic

    Paternalism is well-documented. As to the "fall apart" bit, there isn't likely a mountain of documentation that uses "maternalism" as its label. The lack of intervention or existence of its study is precisely what I argue for. Philosophically, there ...

    "Maternal/Paternal" is likely better wording.
