Dyslexics: Dating, Marriage and Parenthood
The interview data included in this paper makes the suffering real and places it within our life world. The main focus of this paper was to investigate self-harming as a reaction to long-term educational difficulties and as a by-product of depression, based on the data from Alexander-Passe [13,15, 72].
Overall self-harm in many forms was used by the majority of the sample, with food and alcohol more commonly than bodily harm. This paper investigates negative emotional coping which took place, which included self-harming with: Self-harm was greater in the depressive to non-depressive sample; however, the type of self-harm varied.
Males and non-depressives tended to predominantly self-harm with alcohol, followed by food and then rarely with bodily harm, whereas females in general, tended to predominantly self-harm with food, then bodily harm and lastly alcohol.
Overall depressives self-harmed predominantly with food and then equally between alcohol and bodily-harm. Each group had their own profile and suggests that self-harm is a complex issue, with self-harm activities happening both in child and adulthood.
Dyslexics : dating, marriage and parenthood
The main focus of this paper was to investigate self-harming as a reaction to long-term educational difficulties and as a by-product of depression, based on the data from Alexander-Passe[13,15, 72]. Self-harm, suicide and dyslexia.
The study compared depressive to non-depressive dyslexics, gender and degree to non-degree educated dyslexics. Whilst qualitative in basis, it used IPA Interpretive Phenomenology Analysis to find common themes to understand this sample better. With this large sample, childhood to adulthood was investigated, specifically emotional coping strategies-both positive and negative. Self-harm was also investigated food, alcohol, drugs, cutting and other , thinking about suicide and attempted suicide was investigated and will be the focus of this chapter.
Not surprisingly self-harm was greater in the depressive to non-depressive sample; however, the type of self-harm was different in each group.
Males and non-depressives tended to predominantly self-harm with alcohol, followed by food and then rarely with bodily harm, whereas females tended to predominantly self-harm with food, then bodily harm and lastly alcohol. Depressives self-harmed predominantly with food and then equally between alcohol and bodily-harm.
Each had their own profile and suggests that self-harm is a complex issue, with self-harm activities happening both as children and adults. In this study, children self-harmed as young as years old in reaction to primary school work pressures, as well as feeling different to their peers. Half the sample thought about suicide and less than half went on to actually attempt suicide. These thoughts, along with the high frequency of helplessness in the sample, suggest that suicide was viewed by many as a logical option to end their helplessness.
Cases of suicide attempts as children were common, as many felt there was no option open to them to cope with the pressures from schoolwork and they perceived their parents did not understand what they were going through.
What this suggests is that parents and schools need to look out for children at risk and put policies in place to manage the school workload of children. Drug overdoses, cutting wrists and alcohol poisoning on purpose were found in this study in both depressive and non-depressives-these were due to helplessness and are important to highlight, as dyslexia should not just be seen as a problem affecting a persons ability to read and write.
The long-term emotional effects of feeling alienated by your peers and frustrated by your difficulties, even for simple basic tasks, should not be underestimated.

Alexander-Passe , Scott , and McNutty agree that dyslexia is camouflaged in adulthood, due to advanced coping strategies allowing a sense of normality to be projected. Dyslexics are very conscious of their differences, so create a secondary persona to operate in the wider community Alexander-Passe, , Scott, This persona works the majority of the time; however when it cracks can become highly embarrassing, demonstrates how vulnerable they can be, and confirms their otherness compared to their peers.
Perceptions of Success in Dyslexic adults in the UK. Interpretive Phenomenology Analysis was used to investigate dyslexia and perceptions of success. The study uses both quantitative and qualitative data to understand how dyslexic adults perceive any life success, and whilst many were degree educated, this was not seen by many as enough to herald themselves as successful.
Whilst many were seen by others as successful, again they dismissed this and denied themselves such attributes. Please enter the message. Please verify that you are not a robot. Would you also like to submit a review for this item? You already recently rated this item.
