Write a short scenario that illustrates a particular type of dysfunctional conflict. Provide the who and what of the conflict. Discuss the components of the scenario that characterize the particular type of dysfunctional conflict. From your readings, identify and explain two strategies to effectively deal with the conflict.
a & Kanazawa & Fukudo & Drossman 2011) Irritable bowel syndrome is a common bowel disease, “it is characterised as recurrent abdominal pain associated with altered bowel habits without obvious structural abnormalities seen on endoscopy or X-ray”. There are different contributing factors which increases the chance of developing IBS. Firstly, IBS is known to be associated with psychosocial distress. Psychological factors such as major loss, abuse, physio social trauma all can contribute to developing and the severity of IBS. Australian twin study identified that IBS could be passed down through genetics. “concordance rate for IBS between monozygotic twins was significantly higher than that between dizygotic twins”. When looking at the brain. Neurotransmitters regulate gastrointestinal activities providing a strong link between biological factors and psychological (Mach, 2004). Furthermore, when looking at patients suffering with IBS the most common mental health conditions are Anxiety disorders, Depression and phobia disorders. This is due to the pain threshold being lowered by somatic symptoms which is caused by distress. A study conducted by (Prxekop, Hayiland, Yan Zhao, Oda, Morton & Fraser, 2012). looked at four different types of groups and identified any links between irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and fibromyalgia (FM). The four groups included females with IBS, FM, IBS AND FM and there was a control group with healthy females. Those who were part of the control group has significantly less traumatic and major life stressors in contrast to those in the other groups. They additionally identified those individuals who had both FM and IBS reported to have the worst stressors and mental health. This is strong evidence supporting psychological factors having an influence on IBS. There has been evidence that patients with a history of abuse report more severe symptoms and psychological stress compared to those who do not. this was measured by the amount of physician visits and the amount of time spent in bed which was significantly higher thus providing evidence for social and psychological factors influences IBS (Tanaka & Kanazawa & Fukudo & Drossman 2011). The Author expressed the lack of research that is conducted on IBS, Although the significant link the lack of research can be seen as a limitation as further studies would generate stronger results which thus would result in a stronger basis for evidence. Furthermore, as the theory develops and more research is attained it would ultimately catch the idea of other physicians.>GET ANSWER
