Hello. I am just a dad with a one year old son. He is my only child. I am 43 years old. I am also a commercial fisherman. I am not a douchebag. I have an uphill battle trying to get timeshare w him. He was conceived with a woman I barely knew, and she is a successful professional. I love him the same or more than any parent. I have been trying to be allowed to be a part of his life since before he was born. Right now I get one overnight every other Saturday, and drive 1-1/2 hrs away twice a week to spend 3 hrs tues and Thursday. It's unsustainable work wise and sleep wise, as I work long days and am unable to work in blocks w this schedule, and am pretty much emotionally exhausted due to missing him and the daily manipulative written exchanges w his mom for almost 2 years. I am just seeking 48 consecutive hrs a week w me for the time being, until my 7 month crabbing season ends or when I can get to court. I know we bond so much whenever he is allowed to stay overnight with me. We were recently assigned to a court-appointed coparenting counselor, who happens to have a 3 month old child and got separated one month ago. She has stated that it is inappropriate for a child his age to spend nights away from his mom, and has given me the homework assignment to research "attachment" and "appropriate timeshare schedules for a child age 0-5". Can any of you help me, or send me links to research that indicates otherwise? As well as anything that indicates it's harmful for him not to have significant overnights w me, or the Ill effects of being overprotected. Thank you in advance. I just had the idea that maybe a student w up to date knowledge would care enough to respond to this.
Hi there, My name is Marjorie and I'm applying to be a non-degree seeking student at UWM this fall for their MA in Philosophy so that I can explore whether or not I want to pursue this field of study, instead of continuing down the psychology/social work career path. I was hoping to possibly get some feedback on my reason statement, which is based off of the guidelines they provided. Any constructive criticism is welcome; I'm not looking for perfection here, just want to make a good impression. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this and offer feedback. Having studied psychology during my years as an undergraduate, I initially thought I would pursue graduate study in social work or counseling psychology, with the goal of becoming a counselor. Fast forward a few years since graduation, and I am seriously reconsidering this career path. I currently work at a hospital which specializes in the treatment of mental illness. This new position has made me question some of the practices of modern-day psychiatry and has emphasized the reality that the helping professions run an exceptionally high risk of burnout and a loss of empathy called compassion fatigue. I want to be part of a revolution that changes the way we approach mental health care and I think the best way to do this is through the lens of philosophical enquiry, particularly through applied ethics. I also desire to catalyze a resurgence of philosophy by examining it and distilling the knowledge into a practical philosophy that is both accessible and useful for the general public. I earned a 4.0 during my first two years of college, earning a place on the Provost’s list during that time, and was inducted into Phi Eta Sigma, a freshman honorary society. After that, I was on the Dean’s list nearly every year and graduated after five years of study with a Bachelors of Science in Psychology, Bachelors of Arts in Spanish, a minor in Environmental Studies, and a Mental Health Skills Certificate. My broad undergraduate experience gave me the confidence and writing skills to succeed in masters level classes and the two philosophy courses I took enhanced my ability to think critically and gave me an idea of what doing philosophy means, and why it is important. Reflecting on my college career, I have realized that philosophy courses were the ones that I was most engaged in, and challenged me the most intellectually. Topics of interest for me range from the study of logic and ethics to philosophy of religion. I am particularly interested in the philosophy of eastern religions and the intersection between psychology, neuroscience, and philosophy. My hope is to explore these interests further as a student at UWM, with the intention to eventually pursue a PhD in the subject.
