Art Projects To Overcome Agression

The increased aggression of children is one of the most acute problems not only for doctors, teachers and psychologists, but also for society as a whole. The relevance of the topic is undoubted, since the number of children with such behavior is growing rapidly. This is caused by the merge of a number of unfavorable factors: deterioration of the social conditions of children; the crisis of family education; inattention of the school to the neuropsychic state of children; an increase in the proportion of pathological births that leave consequences in the form of damage to the child’s brain. The media, film and video industries, which regularly promote violence, also contribute to their share. In recent years, scientific interest in the problems of young aggression has increased significantly.

World Suicide Prevention Day

Every year on September 10, the World Health Organization (WHO), with the support of the International Association for Suicide Prevention, holds the World Suicide Prevention Day. Suicide is an act with a fatal result, which was intentionally started and performed by the deceased in the knowledge and expectation of a fatal result. The global goal of the World Suicide Prevention Day is to reduce the level of suicides and suicidal attempts among the population in all countries through the implementation of measures aimed at preventing suicidal behavior of the population, uniting the efforts of many ministries, departments, local executive and regulatory bodies, public associations, and religious confessions.

Suicide Prevention What Works

Suicidal behavior is behavior that manifests itself in the form of fantasies, thoughts or actions aimed at self-harm or self-destruction. Internal forms of suicidal behavior include reflections on the lack of value in life, fantasies about one’s own death, developing a plan for suicide and making a decision to implement it (suicidal tendencies). External forms of suicidal behavior include: Suicide – intentional, deliberate and rapid deprivation of life; A suicide attempt (parasuicide) is intentional self-injury or self-poisoning that did not end in death. Parasuicides also include acts undertaken with the intention of self-harm or suicide, but not resulting in physical injury. For example, interference by outsiders prevented self-hanging; the person was “removed” from the rails before the train aisle, etc.

Fundraising Events in UK

Fundraising events are an integral part of our daily life. The first British charity was officially founded in the 12th century. But even before that, there were traditions to help the disadvantaged, homeless, sick and orphans. And charity in England was first legislated during the Tudor rule – more than 400 years ago. One of the honorable missions of the royal family is to lead charitable projects and help people in every possible way who are deprived of normal human benefits by their origin or due to current circumstances. In today’s England, fundraising events are clearly controlled by state structures, many commercial, insurance and investment companies, banks have their own funds, and a large part of the country’s population participates in charity in one way or another, and from a very early age.
