Socio-Cultural Aspects of Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie’s life was affected by various factors which led to her present condition. She has been affected by many different factors that have led to her becoming what she is at the moment. Angelina’s diabetic condition has been caused by the factors that have been souring her life ever since childhood. The aspect which is based under the socio-cultural is as discussed below.

The life of Angelina has been surrounded by difficulties especially when she was still a young girl. Angelina’s father was mainly practicing adultery while she was still a young girl. The fact that the father disturbed Angelina’s mother made her face difficulties in her childhood. This led to her being depressed all time. She was always stressed by the fact that the father was being a nuisance to the mother. This was always affecting her negatively to the extent that she started to develop some sickness which side effects of stress was caused by the father. The farther, apart from just disturbing the mother was also affecting her life negatively by not providing fully as the way it is required of a father.

The stress that Angelina faced on her childhood led her to develop diabetes. Although, at this point, the sickness was quite at a lower degree that had no serious effect on her life at any point especially when she was still growing, she was also affected by much more stress on the balancing of academics and her acting life. This led to the growth of the sickness, though it was too slow to be termed as causing any problem to her. This was much increased by her father where she started acting while the dad did not want her to take up some roles in the video. This was because he believed they were quite immoral for his daughter. Although, Jolie went against her fathers’ wish and took the roles anyway. Though, this led herb to become even depressed as she also felt the pain of disappointing the parent.

Angelina Jolie has been in three married relationships so far. It is also rumored that she is in the process of divorcing her present husband. This basically shows that the relationship and marriage thing is more of a nightmare to the renowned actress. The reason for this is because she has not been able to stay with on man as husband and wife except for the recent one whom they are about to divorce as it is rumored.

Jolie has found a lot of stress in her marriage lives. This is especially after she has become an icon in which the whole world follows up her movements and how she stays. When her love life was being exposed, she got a lot of stress from the marriages. The reason for her to quit the marriages was at least to minimize the effect of the stressful lives. This, however, still led to her diabetic conditions being adverse. This was because she still gained stress from the kind of life she was staying; the life of marriage and divorce consecutively was the main cause of stress at this level which led to the diabetic conditions.

Diagnostic information

This refers to the collection of data and using t considerably by analyzing and translating information to meanings that can be used by people on different issues or matter. A possible diagnosis for Angelina Jolie’s case is by the use of a medical doctor. This should be on the basis of the viewing of the depths of the sickness in Jolie. The doctor will have to diagnose Jolie on this matter, the depth of her sickness and even if it can be treated at this point.

According to, Rupp, Templin, & Henson, (2010), the bias of this diagnosis is that there are people who are seen not susceptible to particular illness. This may lead the doctor or medical officer doing the clinical checkup not consider Jolie on this case. Therefore, this will have to affect her negatively as the sickness may stay for long without being realized.

There is also an assumption made during the diagnostic. These assumptions are talked of clearly by Yang, (2003). When the diagnostic is done, there may be an assumption on the causes of the sickness one is suffering. This may lead to one being given the different treatment method from the one that is supposed to be really given. This may lead to the sickness being treated maybe after the diagnosis but still it continues without seizing. The reason behind this mainly is because, the main cause of the disease is not being considered, therefore, all the treatment being done are in vain as the cause is not dealt with at all.

Theoretical Orientations

The concept of development of problems and how they can be best solved by therapists is called theoretical orientation. On this case, of Angelina Jolie, we will consider two theoretical orientations which are; Cognitive behavioral therapy and family therapy.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

This is applicable for the case of Angelina Jolie in the sense the behavior and beliefs she has are considered. The reason maybe for her being divorced all time by the husbands may be due to her behaviors. Therefore, the therapist will try to inform her of this and ask her to change where necessary as this might help reduce the rate of divorces. Therefore, will automatically reduce her stress levels that cause her diabetes

Family therapy

This therapy may also work out for Angelina Jolie. It involves the whole family being subjected to the therapy. This may help resolve her differences with her present fiancée based on the rumors they are to divorce. This may lead stop the divorce thus reduce the stress levels she may be just about to go through. The family therapy may also bring them to good terms as husband and wife. It may also create a good relationship of Jolie and her children thus even lower down the stress levels that may be brought by family matters.
