The current article presents the experiences of three different child- and family-serving programs in the United States that have successfully implemented interventions to prevent the use of restraint and seclusion (R/S) in their respective facilities. The article also provides family and youth perspectives on the impact of and recommendations for(More)
Leaves of bhringaraj and guduchi herb of Kadapa district of Andhra Pradesh, India, are dried and powdered. ICP-MS analysis of samples indicates that copper is present in both the samples. An EPR study of guduchi sample also confirms the presence of Fe(III) whereas Eclipta alba confirms the presence of Fe(III), Mn(II) and Cu(II). Optical absorption spectrum(More)
BACKGROUND Restraints are used as one of the safety interventions for children and adolescents in various community, hospital, and treatment settings. Although considered safety interventions, restraints are known to have many adverse effects on children and staff, including injuries; even reports of death are noted in the literature. OBJECTIVE In an(More)
Pelecypod shell originated from Kolleru lake of Andhra Pradesh is used in the present work. It contains Mn(II) and Fe(III) in traces. The EPR spectrum of the compound is due to Mn(II) which is in three independent sites. The three g values are evaluated with slight differences. The hyperfine component varies from 9.33 to 9.49mT. The zero field splitting(More)
A sample of prehnite from Rayalaseema zone of Andhra Pradesh, India containing about 2.565 wt.% Fe(2)O(3) is used in the present work. The mineral has been characterized by EPMA, optical absorption, EPR, NIR and Mössbauer techniques. Mössbauer studies confirm the presence of iron as an impurity in two sites. An EPR study on powder sample confirm the(More)
Chromium containing mica is called fuchsite. Fuchsite originating from the Nellore district of India containing 3.37 wt.% of chromium is used in the present study. Optical absorption and EPR studies were carried out at room temperature (RT). The optical absorption spectrum gives energies at 14925, 15070, 15715, 16400, 17730 and 21740 cm(-1), which are(More)
EPR, Optical and IR spectral studies on a naturally occurring mineral melanterite are carried out at room temperature. EPR studies indicate the presence of Cu(II) ion in tetragonally distorted octahedral site and hyperfine lines could not be resolved due to higher concentration of the paramagnetic impurity in the mineral. Optical absorption spectrum is a(More)
Clinohumite, a humite group mineral, originated from Pamir Mountains, USSR, is used in the present work. Optical absorption, electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR), near infrared (NIR) and Mössbauer techniques are used in the characterization of the mineral sample. The optical absorption spectrum indicates that Fe(II) impurity is present in two sites with(More)
The iron phosphate minerals satterlyite and gormanite have been investigated by EPR and optical absorption studies. The optical results indicate the presence of ferrous and ferric ions in both minerals. In gormanite the site symmetry of Fe(III) is near octahedral whereas in satterlyite it is tetragonally distorted. On the other hand, the Fe(II) ions are in(More)
