Allowing the conflict resolution process to unfold in a logical and incremental way means moving from contentious and tightly held positions to a process with more give-and-take between the parties. An intrinsic aspect of genuine give-and-take is gradually taking more risk to show all the elements of one's position and all the facts that might impact the dispute and its resolution. The conflict manager's role is to enable the process of eliciting the disclosure of more information, and to support the value of doing so. Consequently, any attempt to jump ahead and dive into finding potential common ground among disputants in order to accelerate the conflict's resolution time-line mitigates the potential for the identification of differences to serve as the basis for lasting improvements in the conflicted parties' relationships. Conflict management cannot be hurried--it takes patience and applying the right interventions presented in the right way to the right parties at the right time, in order to reach the right integrated outcome. Water-soluble vitamins include the B vitamins and vitamin C. They are stored in only limited amounts in bodily tissues, and therefore they need to be consumed on a daily basis. The B vitamins work with enzyme systems to metabolize food and form essential biochemicals. Each of the water-soluble vitamins, its important purpose, the symptoms Fat-Soluble Vitamins The fat-soluble vitamins include A, D, E, K, and beta-carotene. They are stored in the liver and, as they are excreted slowly from the body, can accumulate to toxic levels. In appropriate doses the various fat-soluble vitamins are essential for maintaining immunity, bone strength, and blood clotting. The functions, deficiency consequences, common sources, and RDAs are listed on article 89. Nutrients as Medicines The findings were very interesting. The case for home births Giving birth at home can be a truly wonderful experience - one without the hassle of having to navigate a journey to hospital or anywhere else, as midwives come out to you and are in a position to give you their full attention. You often enjoy continuity of care, meaning the same midwife or group of midwives will see you at all of your antenatal appointments, your birth and your postpartum visits. There is also the sheer bliss of being able to get into your own bed after giving birth and snuggle up with your newborn baby.

All that said, one of the most common reasons women dismiss home as an option is because of the big what if? <a href=''>The</a> problem is that we, as a society, are so conditioned to believe birth is dangerous and hospital is the safest place. <a href=''>In</a> reality, intervention rates are much higher in hospitals, even for low-risk women, which actually raises the question:But what if something goes wrong in hospital? The truth is, nobody should have to justify their birth place choice; And there's no right or wrong choice either. We successfully sold all of our supply, and were thrilled to run home to tell Mom about our adventure and how we planned on spending our newly earned dollars. The phone was ringing as we barreled through the front door, and I heard my mom say, Corn? Uh-huh, uh-huh. Thank you for calling. I was sure she was going to say, Nice work, girls! You're the best. Imagine my surprise when she put her hands on her hips, and in a serious tone said, What in the world have you girls done now? We all answered at the same time, detailing our day's adventure and grand business efforts. Well, Mom finally said as the phone started to ring again and again. The corn you picked was cow corn and not meant for people! Conflict Management Techniques Now that we have introduced the basic types of conflict and the continuum of conflict resolution with its intrinsic Differentiation and Integration Phases, we reach what might be deemed the harder part--how to actually facilitate the process of moving conflicts from the left side of the Phases and Process of Conflict Resolution figure on article 205, where parties are far apart in their differences, to the right side where compromise and even a commitment to future collaboration is reached. Where does the conflict manager begin? Establishing a Neutral Setting for Discourse on Conflict A conflict mediator is by definition someone who must convey a sense of position neutrality to the resolution process.

Otherwise, the mediator is simply a proponent of one side or the other part to the conflict, and not a conflict mediator at all. What the mediator needs to avoid is conducting the resolution process on one side's natural turf, thereby showing favoritism or allowing one side to feel more comfortable than the other during the resolution process. The setting for the Differentiation and Integration Phase processes should provide an environment that reflects the mediator's neutrality and that is perceived by the parties as even-handed and not likely to bias the proceedings in any way. At times, the discourse on the conflict needs to occur outside of organizational walls, such as at a hotel conference room or neutral party's office. Build EQ and Apply it to the Conflict Types and Resolution Process Nobody dies of old age; Although modern medicine is continually developing new approaches to treat the diseases that create suffering and shorten life, there is increasing evidence that nutritional approaches can help reduce our risk and lessen the disability caused by the common afflictions of humanity. In this section we will explore five prevalent conditions in which nutritional approaches may be helpful: heart disease, cancer, memory loss, arthritis, and immune weakness. NOURISHING YOUR HEART Heart disease is the number-one cause of death and serious illness in our society. By now you must be aware that smoking, high blood pressure, an elevated serum cholesterol level, and lack of physical exercise all contribute to the risk for cardiovascular illness. Mental attitude in the form of hostility also plays a role in increasing your susceptibility to heart blockages. We'll address other lifestyle issues throughout this article, but let's focus here on the role of nutritional complements. Antioxidant Vitamins and Heart Disease Studies have shown that oxidized forms of cholesterol are more likely to be deposited into blood vessels, eventually resulting in blockage. What's most important is that every woman knows all of her options and is ensuring her choice is a properly informed one, and not one based on fear or conditioning. One of the most significant findings from the Birthplace Study was that for a low-risk' second-time (or subsequent) mum, home was the safest place for you to give birth statistically. <a href=''>If</a> you are having your second or subsequent baby, and are enjoying an uncomplicated pregnancy with no known medical issues (ie consideredlow-risk'), then home is statistically the safest place for you to give birth, with no significant difference in outcome for the baby compared to hospital but with significantly fewer interventions, making it better for both you and your baby. Interventions include augmentation of labour (using drugs to speed things up), assisted delivery (forceps or ventouse to get the baby out), stitches for trauma (vaginal tears), episiotomies (an incision to the perineum) and caesarean sections. The likelihood of any of these becoming necessary is significantly reduced if you choose to birth at home.

Yet, despite the findings of this study being publicly available (perhaps not promoted well enough), the home birth rate across the UK remains at around 2 per cent. Whilst the above applies to women having their second or subsequent baby, this does not mean that home is not safe if you are a low-risk' woman having your first baby. <a href=''>For</a> first-time mums the study showed that the risk of the baby experiencing an adverse outcome, although still very low, increased from 5 in 1000 in an obstetric unit to 9 in 1000 within the home birth group. <a href=''>However,</a> the risk of intervention for first-time mums was still lowest at home. <a href=''>The</a> study also found that first-time mums are more likely to be transferred to a hospital - 45 per cent compared to 12 per cent of second-time (or subsequent) mums. <a href=''>My</a> sisters and I had no idea such a thing even existed! <a href=''>Isn't</a> all corn corn? <a href=''>No,</a> Mom said, as she held back a laugh. <a href=''>Cow</a> corn is feed. <a href=''>It's</a> hard and tough, and not at all edible for people. <a href=''>We</a> spent the next few hours returning the profits back to our customers in the neighborhood. <a href=''>I</a> learned several invaluable lessons from this experience, which have served me well throughout the years. <a href=''>The</a> first is that when you're selling something, make sure it's people corn, not cow corn. <a href=''>That</a> is, make your message match your merchandise. <a href=''>And</a> make it to connect with your customer. <a href=''>We</a> believe the conflict resolution process starts with reinforcing the parties' accountability to demonstrate emotional intelligence throughout the resolution process. <a href=''>Importantly,</a> the individual managing conflict is a party to the resolution process, and faces many of the same types of affective challenges with which the other parties to the conflict must cope. <a href=''>Certainly,</a> we have all experienced circumstances when affective conflict occurs within a group--from contentious exchanges filled with anger and frustration to instances when one can cut the silent tension with a knife. <a href=''>Needless</a> to say, it is not a nice place to be when affective conflict is pervasive. <a href=''>How</a> the manager faces up to the anxiety and discomfort intrinsic to affective conflict is critical to avoid becoming more a party to the conflict rather than a source of facilitating resolution to the dispute. <br /><br /><a href=''>Building</a> one's emotional intelligence competencies (ie, your EQ) helps prevent the conflict from hijacking the conflict manager emotionally. <a href=''>Physiological</a> research shows that our brains can create neurochemical activity which, in essence, overpowers or hijacks one's ability to reason through a conflicted, stressful or threatening circumstance. <a href=''>When</a> individuals engaged in conflict experience an emotional hijacking of their brains, the result is steady state of disorder and distraction about how to get to a point when the Integration Phase can begin. <a href=''>All</a> parties to the conflict can contribute to this emotionally hijacked status quo, including the individual attempting to manage the dispute to an appropriate resolution. <a href=''>The</a> fact is that it is simply not possible to mediate conflict, especially of the difficult affective type, when the conflict managers themselves aren't thinking straight and allowing unfiltered emotions to rule their behavior during the dispute. <a href=''>Antioxidant</a> vitamins can reduce the formation of bad cholesterol and may lower the risk of heart attacks. <a href=''>The</a> roles of the three major antioxidant vitamins have been studied, with vitamin E showing the most benefit, vitamin C showing little benefit, and the carotenoids falling somewhere in between. <a href=''>Studies</a> on vitamin E over the past thirty years have generally confirmed its benefit in lowering the risk of heart attacks in daily doses ranging from 100 to 800 IU. <a href=''>In</a> one of the largest studies, men taking 400 or 800 IU of vitamin E for an average of one and a half years showed a 47 percent reduction in heart attacks in both dosing groups. <a href=''>Most</a> other studies involving both men and women have supported the benefits of vitamin E in reducing heart disease. <a href=''>Although</a> studies have suggested that diets naturally rich in beta-carotene provide some protection against heart disease, no study to date has convincingly shown that carotenoid supplementation provides definite benefit. <a href=''>In</a> fact, in one large trial, smokers given beta-carotene and vitamin A supplementation actually showed an increase in lung cancer deaths and a slight increase in deaths from heart attacks. <a href=''>Although</a> there continues to be a lot of debate about the meaning of this report, the bottom line regarding the carotenoids and heart disease is to eat your carrots, and not overdo supplementation. <a href=''>Although</a> vitamin C is clearly important in maintaining healthy blood vessels, studies have not consistently shown a benefit for supplemental C in reducing the risk of heart disease. <a href=''>As</a> with the carotenoids, people following diets rich in natural sources of vitamin C have less heart disease than those whose diets are less abundant in fresh fruits and vegetables. <a href=''>Common</a> reasons for transfer include: wanting more substantial pain relief (an epidural), not dilating as quickly as expected, meconium in the baby's waters, or other signs that would indicate continuous monitoring might be a good idea. <a href=''>So,</a> whilst the study certainly doesn't rule out home birth for first-time mums (there are clear benefits as well as risks) it highlights how choosing where to give birth is not always straightforward but requires some careful consideration, research and weighing up of pros and cons. <a href=''>Ultimately,</a> where you choose to give birth has to be right for you; <a href=''>With</a> regard to the bigBut what if something goes wrong? But it's a little more complex than simply choosing to be in hospital because it would be the right place to be if something went wrong, when, by being in the hospital setting, you're increasing the chances of something going wrong in the first place.
