A court lacks jurisdiction anytime it denies you the Bill of Rights or amendments, particularly Due Process. As I noted before:
Theoretical foundations[ edit ] The MSE derives from an approach to psychiatry known as descriptive psychopathology  or descriptive phenomenology which developed from the work of the philosopher and psychiatrist Karl Jaspers.
In practice, the MSE is a blend of empathic descriptive phenomenology and empirical clinical observation. It has been argued that the term phenomenology has become corrupted in clinical psychiatry: It is a key part of the initial psychiatric assessment in an out-patient or psychiatric hospital setting.
The purpose is to obtain evidence of symptoms and signs of mental disorders, including danger to self and others, that are present at the time of the interview. Appearance[ edit ] Clinicians assess the physical aspects such as the appearance of a patient, including apparent age, height, weight, and manner of dress and grooming.
Colorful or bizarre clothing might suggest maniawhile unkempt, dirty clothes might suggest schizophrenia or depression. If the patient appears much older than his or her chronological age this can suggest chronic poor self-care or ill-health.
Observations of physical appearance might include the physical features of alcoholism or drug abusesuch as signs of malnutritionnicotine stains, dental erosion, a rash around the mouth from inhalant abuseor needle track marks from intravenous drug abuse.
Observations can also include any odor which might suggest poor personal hygiene due to extreme self-neglect, or alcohol intoxication. Abnormal movements, for example choreiformathetoid or choreoathetoid movements may indicate a neurological disorder.
A tremor or dystonia may indicate a neurological condition or the side effects of antipsychotic medication. There are a range of abnormalities of movement which are typical of catatoniasuch as echopraxiacatalepsywaxy flexibility and paratonia or gegenhalten .
Stereotypies repetitive purposeless movements such as rocking or head banging or mannerisms repetitive quasi-purposeful abnormal movements such as a gesture or abnormal gait may be a feature of chronic schizophrenia or autism.
More global behavioural abnormalities may be noted, such as an increase in arousal and movement described as psychomotor agitation or hyperactivity which might reflect mania or delirium. An inability to sit still might represent akathisiaa side effect of antipsychotic medication. Lack of eye contact may suggest depression or autism.
Alexithymic individuals may be unable to describe their subjective mood state. An individual who is unable to experience any pleasure may be suffering from anhedonia. Affect may be described as appropriate or inappropriate to the current situation, and as congruent or incongruent with their thought content.
For example, someone who shows a bland affect when describing a very distressing experience would be described as showing incongruent affect, which might suggest schizophrenia.
The intensity of the affect may be described as normal, blunted affectexaggeratedflat, heightened or overly dramatic. A flat or blunted affect is associated with schizophrenia, depression or post-traumatic stress disorder ; heightened affect might suggest mania, and an overly dramatic or exaggerated affect might suggest certain personality disorders.
Mobility refers to the extent to which affect changes during the interview: The person may show a full range of affect, in other words a wide range of emotional expression during the assessment, or may be described as having restricted affect.
The affect may also be described as reactive, in other words changing flexibly and appropriately with the flow of conversation, or as unreactive. This heading is concerned with the production of speech rather than the content of speech, which is addressed under thought process and thought content see below.
A structured assessment of speech includes an assessment of expressive language by asking the patient to name objects, repeat short sentences, or produce as many words as possible from a certain category in a set time. Simple language tests form part of the mini-mental state examination.
In practice, the structured assessment of receptive and expressive language is often reported under Cognition see below. People with autism spectrum disorders may have abnormalities in paralinguistic and pragmatic aspects of their speech.
A person with schizophrenia might use neologismswhich are made-up words which have a specific meaning to the person using them.
Speech assessment also contributes to assessment of mood, for example people with mania or anxiety may have rapid, loud and pressured speech ; on the other hand depressed patients will typically have a prolonged speech latency and speak in a slow, quiet and hesitant manner.Start studying 5 components and 17 principles of coso.

Jun 29, · Organizations don't exist in a vacuum. Rather, each organization operates in an environment that affects everything, from the availability of skilled workers, to the price of raw materials. Judgment is considered a "free variation" word, and the use of either judgment or judgement (with an e) is considered acceptable.
This variation arises depending on the country and the use of judgment in a legal or non-legal context. The mental status examination or mental state examination (MSE) is an important part of the clinical assessment process in psychiatric practice.
It is a structured way of observing and describing a patient 's psychological functioning at a given point in time, under the domains of appearance, attitude, behavior, mood, and affect, speech.

Yes, it was a huge deal, but it was also a heavy deal.
