Writing and Researching

What I think about writing and research, I believe you have a have a constant imagination or people who can help you branch off ideas. Its if very easy to get stuck when researching and not know where to turn to and it may feel like a dead end or that you are repetitive of the same idea of the topic. When in comes to writing, it depends on what you understand or what you think that your professors looking for even though you’re not fully aware of what your doing or how it relates to assignment. Writing and Research to me is a maze with no goal. You can try to find different way and pathways but if you don’t know what your doing or losing for you just walking in a maze.

Beyers, Leandri, et al. “An Introduction to Teddy Bear Therapy: A Systems Family Therapy Approach to Child Psychotherapy.” Journal of Family Psychotherapy, vol. 28, no. 4, Oct-Dec2017, pp. 317-332. EBSCOhost, doi:10.1080/08975353.2017.1301156.

Leandri Beyers is an clinical psychologist in Johannesburg, South Africa. She explains the psychological affect of using a teddy bear in therapeutic session.   This allows the children to interact with the therapist in on nonthreatening way.  She states ” This is an actual teddy bear that is introduced to the child at the first session, and which accompanies the child home and to successive sessions(318)”. It allows the therapist to know detail about the children family and relationships. This information is useful because there was a teddy bear on the quilt of Robert Burchill. This allows me to make an connection Roberts innocence and the childlike thought of a teddy bear. This information can be useful for others understanding the different techniques that therapist use to connect with their patients.

Subculture and HIV/AIDS Epidemic

subculture is the fraternity that is represented in my aids quilt by Micheal Burchill. Apparently he was a apart of a university fraternity that was a huge part of his life where it was on his quilt.

the relationship between the subculture embodied  in the quilt and the HIV/AIDS epidemic is the homosexual man that was apart of a fraternity had been apart of the AIDS epidemic. It could have been a homosexual frat of that the culture of college allowed him to contract this deadly disease. Him furthering his education being apart of the college culture and atmosphere could have allowed him to contract aids and be apart of this epidemic.
