Testimonials

  • Choose a chronic health issue individuals experience (e.g., diabetes, fibromyalgia, asthma, Alzheimer’s) that is often seen by health psychologists.  Write a 1,250-1,500-word essay that addresses the following: · Describe problems that are often experienced by individuals and their families as a result of this illness (e.g., anxiety, depression, stigma, stress, non-adherence). · Discuss how psychological theory can be applied to understand and describe the source of the problem and to treat the issue for the individual. o You may choose the psychological theory/theories you wish to apply (e.g., biopsychosocial theory, stress theories, adherence theories, health promotion theories, and social norms theories, as long as they are discussed in the literature). · Describe how health psychology/health psychologists can aid individual and families in coping with the chronic health issue. Please use research to support your response. · Discuss what research is currently being examined on the topic. Please consider discussing both medical and psychological advances noted in literature searches. What does the future look like for the chronic health issue? Utilize a minimum of six outside scholarly sources (peer-reviewed journal articles obtained from the GCU library). Certain websites (e.g. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, American Psychological Association) may be used in addition to the six peer-reviewed journal articles. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.
  • Use your own words: the worksheet should not include a lot of quoted information (you still need to cite/list your references). Your answers in each cell of the worksheet should be approximately 50 words in length. (Total word count for this worksheet should range from 375 to 500 words). Use the textbook as your primary reference (not web sites), but do not use any direct quotations: put the material into your own words. The assignment asks you to tell us two things about each I/O pioneer: what you see as their major contribution, and how that helps us today. You may need to come up with the second part on your own: don’t look for the answer in the book. For example: 1) Psychologist pioneer XYZ did the first research seeing how various pay systems create different levels of motivation. 2) We know now that “low motivation” is an expected response to an unfair pay system that is not equitable, so we know that we need to fix the pay system instead of trying to motivate the employees in other ways.
  • For this milestone, you will identify a research gap in the articles you reviewed for your chosen track and develop a research question addressing the gap. Please note there may be more recent developments in the field related to your chosen track but for this assignment you will only focus on the articles provided. A. Identify a gap in the developmental psychology research presented in your chosen track. B. Develop a basic research question addressing the identified gap. C. Determine an appropriate research design that addresses your research question regarding developmental psychology, and explain why it was chosen. D. Explain how you will account for issues of ethics associated with your proposed research design. E. Explain how your approach to accounting for issues of ethics was informed by your review of the research presented in your chosen track.
  • Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word paper that addresses the following: Justify your use of this method by comparing it to at least one other job analysis method. Evaluate various psychological tests and other methods that would be important to consider when hiring commercial pilots. What legal and ethical concerns should an organization consider when hiring these pilots? Differentiate between various performance appraisal methods that would be most suitable for this particular job. Format your paper according to APA guidelines.
  • Step 5: Provide a description of the program evaluation plan. Identify at least 2 variables that can be operationalized and measured to determine if intended outcomes are achieved. The variables need to flow logically from the target population, the issue being addressed (addiction or relationship satisfaction), the program outputs, and the intended outcomes. Develop a plan for how and when the variables will be measured and how the data generated will be used to evaluate the outcomes (goals). At least 1 of the variables needs to be measured using a formal instrument. Include a brief description of the instrument along with data on its reliability and validity. This step must be presented in narrative format. The paper must be written in current APA format with a title page, narrative for Step 3, the Logic Model, the narrative for Step 5, and a references page. Feel free to paste the provided template into the document. This assignment will be submitted through SafeAssign.

  • Discussion: Gender Bias in Research

    Historically, men have dominated scientific research in that the both the researchers and participants have largely been male. Accordingly, the way research has been designed, the way studies have been conducted, and the ways in which results have been interpreted have been at risk for gender bias. In other words, the preconceived ideas and beliefs or unfounded prejudice about the traits and characteristics of each gender potentially influence the outcomes of research studies. Even today, as women have entered into the academic and scientific world in significant numbers, research is subject to gender bias. The implications of gender bias can be far reaching. As the scientific community uses research study results for subsequent research and the media picks up the results to report findings to the public, gender bias can have a huge impact. Society may be making decisions that are based on incorrect, misleading, or biased data. As an example, a majority of early heart disease research was conducted primarily using male subjects leading to the assumption that heart disease was a man's disease and did not significantly impact women. The gender bias in heart disease research resulted in little attention being paid to women who had heart disease symptoms, as well as delays and limitations in the treatment for these symptoms for many years. In reality, it is now common knowledge that heart disease is the leading cause of death for women, as it is for men. This Discussion asks you to think about how gender bias can impact scientific research and how the findings of biased research can impact individuals and society. To prepare for this Discussion:
    • Review the Preface, the assigned pages in Chapter 1, and pages 35–47 from Chapter 2 in the course text, Gender: Psychological Perspectives, focusing on why researchers study gender, why researchers include gender as a factor in psychological studies, and how researchers can be biased in their research with regard to gender.
    • Think about the following questions:
      • What impact does gender bias in research have on interpretation of the results of research studies?
      • How does gender bias in research potentially perpetuate the view of what men and women are and should be?
      • What impact could the biased research have on individuals of each gender and on society as a whole?
      • How does the media then use research findings to inform, persuade, sell, and so forth?
    With these thoughts in mind:
    By Day 3
    Post an analysis of the role of gender bias both in the study of psychology and in the reporting of results by others, including the implications. Provide at least two specific examples for each to illustrate your points. Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources.
  • Contribution to Society For this discussion, present an argument for your research paper and clarify the questions you will address through the research. How will your research add to current scientific knowledge and contribute to society? Research topic : The application of cognitive psychology in mental illness or trauma Using at least two current (published within the past 10 years) scholarly sources to support your argument, discuss the scientific merit of your proposed research topic. Discuss how your topic contributes to the knowledge base and how it benefits society. In your discussion, include the specific questions you will be asking in this research project, and the general research approach (for example, quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methods) you will use to conduct the research. ( Questions does not mean interview questions, but rather the hypotheses or theoretical questions you will be attempting to answer by conducting the research.)
  • Psychologists have discovered that human beings experience several different states of consciousness during the course of a day. For example, people have times when they are especially alert and times when they are awake but not alert, often called "daydreaming." Also, while people are asleep, they experience different stages of sleep, each characterized by different patterns of brain and bodily activity. In a multi-paragraph essay, discuss the different states of consciousness that you have experienced in the past 24 hours, including any periods when you were asleep, alert, or "daydreaming." Be sure to describe both the brain and bodily activity you experienced during each state of consciousness. Include information from class materials, readings, and research on states of consciousness to support your discussion.
  • There are two parts to this discussion. Be sure to discuss and give examples in your responses to each part: Part I: Judgments of others is possible, but quite difficult due to problems of bias, incomplete information, and complex inferences. Describe and give examples of  these three issues. Part II: Judgments about the self can also be difficult. Those who know us, even acquaintances, often do a better job predicting our behavior than we do.  Why?  Your answer should be done in terms of RAM and at which stages do we encounter problems of self-judgment. Discuss and give examples
  • Must be original work and use attached case study  To complete this assignment, refer to the link located in this week’s course materials regarding alcohol withdrawal treatments and the CIWA. Read the case study of "Mark," which also includes Mark’s CIWA at the bottom of the case study. Write a 750-1,000-word essay response to the following questions:
    • What are the significant diagnostic markers (“red flags”) that indicate acute alcohol withdrawal syndrome for Mark?
    • What is the most appropriate/safest course of action for Mark? Support your response.
    • Assess the appropriate DSM diagnoses for Mark.
    Include at least three to five scholarly references in your paper. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. http://adai.washington.edu/instruments/pdf/Clinical_Institute_Withdrawal_Assessment_for_Alcohol_Revised_67.pdf Case Study: Mark You are the intake clinician at a large acute inpatient psychiatric facility, which includes a sizable detoxification unit. It is an unusually busy day and the lobby is full of patients seeking treatment. Half an hour before lunch, you pick up another clipboard from the “pending” rack and quickly scan the intake information filled in by the prospective patient and receptionist. Mark is a 45-year-old male who has been waiting since 8:15 AM. He is requesting alcohol detox. You notice that Mark has been waiting for over three hours and you are frustrated because you will have to begin yet another interview with an apology for the long wait. You notice that the blood pressure assessed by the receptionist is somewhat elevated you make a mental note to inform the nurse: BP = 149/97, pulse 104, respiration rate 18. You invite Mark into one of the free interview rooms and you notice that he appears much older than his 45 years. He’s dressed casually and is a bit disheveled; his skin looks old/tanned and flushed; in his right hand, he holds an emesis bag. He apologizes and he states that he has been having dry heaves since yesterday evening but he tells you that he is able to keep down some fluids. You observe that Mark does not look too good and since he’s been waiting in your lobby for three hours, you think it’s a good idea to assess another set of vitals. The receptionist obliges and reports the new vital signs as BP = 154/103, pulse 114, respiration rate 20, oxygen saturation 98% at room air. You become a little concerned by the increase in blood pressure and pulse and you note that while previously Mark’s shirt was dry, he now has sweat stains on his back and chest; visible sweat beads are also noticeable on his forehead and neck. You noticed that Mark speaks softly now when the door to the interview room is closed to cut down on the noise from the hallway. He asks you if you can turn off the bright ceiling lights and to keep on only the lamp on your desk. You oblige. Mark tells you that he started drinking at the age of 16 simply because it was popular and the fun thing to do on the weekends in high school. His social drinking increased somewhat in his 20s but it became problematic in his early 30s. Mark works as a plumber, and along with his older brother, he owned his own plumbing business. Somewhat embarrassed, he tells you that for the past 15 years, he has been more drunk than sober. His longest period of sobriety was seven years ago, after a detox and rehab program he managed to stay clean for nine months. Slowly he relapsed into drinking, believing that he is one of the few who can only drink socially. For the past 15 years, he has had several DUIs. Several times, his wife of 20 years threatened divorce; now they have come to a truce of sorts, but he describes a disengage relationship. His brother continues to be very loyal to him, but Mark tells you that this is both a blessing and a curse. On one hand, his brother has “covered” for him when his drinking and the hangovers made him an unreliable worker. On the other hand, he regrets the fact that had his brother been stricter with him he may have sought serious help a long time ago. Mark tried to quit drinking several times on his own. He reports that on one such occasion when he went “cold turkey” after a religious conversion of sorts, he experienced a grand mal seizure and had to be taken to the emergency room. The ER doctor strongly advised him to never stop drinking abruptly or you have another seizure. The past two years, Mark has been averaging a six-pack of beer and a pint of vodka every day. This is enough to lead to intoxication. He starts with the beers in the morning and after work, he switches to the vodka. On the weekends, he can drink up to a gallon of vodka per day. Those binges lead to blackouts because he often cannot remember most of his Sundays. He often goes out with his brother to a local casino where he gambles $500 to $1000 each weekend. His wife stopped nagging him about it when he insisted that he works hard for his earned money and that he always pays the bills first. Mark has decided to stop drinking because during a routine doctor’s visit, his liver enzymes were significantly elevated. His primary care physician warned him seriously about liver cirrhosis. On several occasions during the interview, Mark quickly turns away from you and leans into his emesis bag heaving heavily. He apologizes. You offer him a bottle of water and he takes small sips occasionally. You ask Mark to stand up and to stretch out his arms: you notice visible tremors in both his arms and his shoulders. He reports a headache of 5 out of 10 (subjective units of distress) and he tells you that normally a few Advils help. His last full drink was yesterday morning before going to his doctor’s office and he had only a sip of beer at lunch. You calculate that by now he has been without any alcohol for approximately 24 hours. He reports mild anxiety, but you observe him to fidget during the interview. You complete the CIWA scale (attached) and you observed that with a score of 25 he is in severe alcohol withdrawals. You notify the nurse immediately, urging her to come and have a look at Mark and to call the doctor for admitting orders. CIWA scale for Mark Assessment Protocol a. Vitals, Assessment Now. b.

  • Theory-based treatment planning, the type you will use throughout this course, is informed and guided by your theoretical orientation. Incorporating your theoretical orientation into treatment planning will help you set goals and choose treatment techniques and interventions appropriate for the client(s) you serve (Gehart & Tuttle, 2003). This week, you apply two counseling theories, Bowenian and structural, to formulate your treatment planning and apply appropriate interventions. In this Assignment, you watch videos of counselors demonstrating the use of Bowenian and structural theories in family counseling. You then formulate treatment plans for the couples and/or families in the videos, applying the theories in question and justifying the use of appropriate interventions. The Assignment (2–3 pages)+treatment plan Based on the theory demonstrated in both videos:
    • Define the problem in each video.
    • Create a theory-based treatment plan, including short- and long-term goals for the couples and/or families.
    • Explain two theory-based interventions you would use and justify your selection.
    • Explain one anticipated outcome of each theory-based intervention.
    Support your Assignment with specific references to all resources used in its preparation. You are asked to provide a reference list for all resources, including those in the resources for this course. https://waldenu.kanopy.com/video/structural-family-therapy https://waldenu.kanopy.com/video/bowenian-family-therapy
  • Discussion: Gender Identity Analysis

    Males typically identify with the male gender and females with the feminine gender. The question for many researchers today and for this Discussion is: How does this gender identification occur? How do individuals come to identify with and accept themselves as either one gender or the other? This concept is termed gender identity in psychology. There are two terms associated with gender identity that are important to highlight: gender stability and gender consistency. Gender stability means that gender is a stable personal characteristic and does not change with age or the situation or the environment. Gender consistency means that you identify with your gender regardless of how you are behaving. If you are a male and put on a pink dress, you show gender consistency if you still identify with being male, even though you are behaving like a female. In this Discussion, you will explore some of the significant factors that influence gender identity and how these influencing factors impact society as a whole. To prepare for this Discussion:
    • Review Chapter 6 in the course text, Gender: Psychological Perspectives. Focus on how different factors influence gender identity. Read “Demographic and Psychosocial Factors Associated With Psychological Distress and Resilience Among TransgenderIndividuals” and “Cross-Cultural Analysis of Gender Roles: Indian and US Advertisements.”
    • Watch a few different TV shows, sitcoms, commercials, or news reports. Also, look at a popular magazine and peruse the ads. Think about how these media sources 1) influence and or reinforce gender identity and 2) play a part in influencing gender bias. Focus on specific examples.
    • Using yourself or your child (or someone else's child with whom you are close), think about the most important influential factors on gender identity, including biological, environmental, family, peer group, and cultural.
    With these thoughts in mind:
    By Day 3
    Post your thoughts on how biology, environment, culture, family, peer group, and the media impact gender identity in the United States. Briefly describe how this influence on gender identity is accomplished. Then, describe the reasons individuals may experience gender dysphoria. Finally, provide some examples for how you think that society can best support the transgendered community. Be sure to support your examples with evidence from your research. Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources. Read a selection of your colleagues' postings.
  • Please no plagiarism and make sure you are able to access all resources on your own before you bid. You need to have scholarly support for any claim of fact or recommendation regarding treatment. APA format also requires headings. Use the prompt each week to guide your heading titles and organize the content of your initial post under the appropriate headings. Remember to use scholarly research from peer-reviewed articles that is current. Please follow the instructions to get full credit for the discussion. I need this completed by 06/10/20 at 8pm. Discussion - Week 1 Top of Form Social Change Portfolio: Part 1: Scope and Consequences As you begin to develop your portfolio addressing a social change issue, you will have opportunities throughout the term to use the Discussion boards to share your progress with your colleagues. These forums allow your peers to provide consultative feedback to you, and for you to offer your perspective to them. For this Discussion and others in this course, you are asked to address specific points and to respond to your peers in specific ways. Your experience with these Discussions contributes to your understanding of consultation and to your skills as a practitioner. To Prepare:
    • Review the Learning Resources for this week as they relate to the scope and consequences of an identified problem in communities.
    • Create a section in your Social Change Portfolio called “Introduction,” and provide an introductory paragraph about your      Social Change Portfolio.
    • Create a section in your Social Change Portfolio called “Scope and Consequences” and include the following information:
      • The target problem you identified within your community. Select only one problem. This needs to be a public health/mental health problem that can be addressed through prevention. (In Waco, TX there is a lack of resources in the black community that help those with mental health problems or you can talk about the lack of things available to help keep kids off the streets leaning to violence)
      • Describe the scope of the problem, such as the prevalence rates in your community, how those rates compare to national averages, and information about trends. Focus on local trends if available but if local data is not available, then describe national trends. For your project, trends refer to whether rates are increasing or decreasing or if there are other changes in the problem over time.
      • Describe the consequences of this problem in your community including physical health consequences, mental health consequences, social/educational/family consequences, and economic consequences.
      • Provide a one-sentence goal statement for your Social Change Portfolio.
    Note: For the purposes of this course, your focus is to develop a plan, but not to actually implement the project. In goal setting, consider what is truly achievable. A vast goal such as, “eliminate teen substance abuse in my community,” is unrealistic. Instead, a goal such as “increase awareness of teen substance abuse and identify resources and a plan to reduce teen substance abuse” is more realistic. Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources. Required Resources Walden University (2016).

    Analyzing Research

    Visit the Public Library of Science (PLOS One) website: http://journals.plos.org/plosone/browse/psychology (a peer-reviewed journal that freely publishes research articles with open licenses). Search for an article that interests you, then answer the following:

    1. What is the hyperlink to the study you chose?
    2. What is the title of the study, and who conducted the research?
    3. Describe the study in a few sentences in your own words.
    4. Identify and describe either the basic assumption of the researchers, or if it was an experiment, the hypothesis. Why were they conducting this research?
    5. How was the study performed? What methods were used?
    6. What were the results and conclusions of this study?
    7. What questions do you still have after reading about this study? For example, if you were to conduct another study based off of this study, what questions would you ask and what would you still want to find out?
  • In this paper, you propose a research project that utilizes one of the designs covered in the course. Specifically, you may propose either:
    • Experimental
    • Quasi-experimental
    • Non-experimental
      • Descriptive
      • Correlational
    No matter which strategy you choose, your paper will contain all the sections of a research report put forth in the APA guide except for the analysis and results. (You are only proposing a study, not carrying one out.) Thus, you should have an APA-style cover sheet, abstract, introduction—including a literature review—hypotheses, method, discussion, and references as well as any tables or figures you might find useful. Please avoid directly quoting articles at all costs. Points will be deducted for quoting in this course. It is best practice to cite the author’s ideas by paraphrasing rather than quoting. Paraphrasing demonstrates your ability to synthesize material for your own purposes. Consult An Easy Guide to APA StylePreview the document for assistance. Your paper should be structured as follows:
    • Title page
    • Abstract
    • Literature review
      • Introduce and summarize research (include discussion of at least 10 peer-reviewed, empirical psychology articles) that has already been done
      • Set up your hypotheses (final statement in this section should be your formal hypothesis)
    • Proposed method
      • Discuss
        • Proposed sample
        • Measures (including how these will be reliable and valid)
        • Research strategy
        • Research design
        • Discussion of threats to validity and how they will be managed
    • Discussion
      • Because you will not have results to discuss, you should discuss
        • The contribution that your study will make to the literature if your hypotheses are supported. (What does your study add to the literature that you already reviewed? What unique contribution does it make?)
        • The strengths and weaknesses of your methodology (based on what you learned about that methodology in the course)
          • What kinds of conclusions can be drawn?
          • Which conclusions cannot be drawn?
          • Will you be able to show causation, given the design you chose?
    • References
      • APA-style reference list. Tables and figures are also okay, but not required. If you do include them, they must be in APA format

If an article has more than one study, you should pick the one study that you understand the best and summarize   only that one. In your summary, state which study you are summarizing   (e.g., "This article reported five studies, but I am summarizing only Study 2.") Write about the articles in everyday language,   explaining the theory each was testing, the method used, the most  important results, and the main points in the discussion. Be very careful not to plagiarize at this stage (please reread the course materials on academic integrity (plagiarism) and the APA guide on paraphrasing). Use 500-600-words for each summary (a total of 1,000-words minimum),   following this organizational structure:
    1. A description of the article's purpose and main   hypotheses
    2. A clear statement of the study's design:     Experimental or correlational? What were the main IVs or PVs? What was the main DV? Who participated?
    3. A methods paragraph in which you mention each key variable in turn, followed by how it was operationalized. (e.g., "The study measured the variable     self-compassion using a self-report questionnaire developed by Neff;     it had 25 items that were rated on five-point scales.")
    4. A paragraph in which you describe the main results. If they used     regression, you must describe the main relationship as well as what it was controlling for (e.g., "Self-compassion predicted well-being, even when controlling for self-esteem and emotionality"). If it was a factorial design, describe the main effects and interactions.
    5. A short paragraph about the authors' conclusions.
    6. Turn in one document with both summaries; make sure to distinguish which summary belongs to which   article.

  • In Module 3, you will raise your child to age 19 months which will cover the infant/toddler stage of development. Be sure to include images of your child. In your second reaction paper, please respond to the questions below and include the requested information. 1. Define temperament and describe implications for child-rearing. 2. At 8 months of age was your child an “easy”, “slow to warm up”, or “difficult” baby in terms of Thomas and Chess’s classic temperamental categories? Did your child’s temperament change from 8 months to 19 months? 3. Compare and contrast types of attachment including factors affecting attachment. 4. Please include the pediatrician report for age 8-9 months. You may paste this in from the program but please cite the program.
  • (Instructions)  Summarize your peers’ responses—To help ensure you understand your peers’ responses, summarize their main ideas in your own words.  2. Give plenty of support—As a community, we want to provide each other with supportive feedback but that should not come at the price of value. Go beyond “Nice post” and generic comments. Once you understand their posts, identify how your peers’ posts enhanced your learning, clarified specific issues, or challenged you to think differently.  3. Constructively challenge your peers—Once you have provided positive feedback, provide a meaningful response based on your own opinion and understanding of the discussion question. This could include identifying where your peers went off track in their responses, elements you disagree with, or questions to help them to expand their thinking on a topic.  4. End with a positive—To help keep the discussion cordial and professional, end with a positive. Connect your challenging response or question back to something positive or interesting about their posts. Integrating positive comments with constructive feedback helps keep the discussion flowing and individuals on track for meaningful discourse. (Peer response) I am beyond excited to be pursuing my master’s degree in Clinical Psychology. Within this area of study, my focus remains on that of the forensic psychology field which has interested me since my undergraduate studies many years ago. I want to acquire my master's degree so that I can continue my career of working with juveniles. I believe that at-risk youth are individuals with the highest importance because they are easily susceptible to peers and environmental influences but also are have higher success rates with diversion and recidivism programs and interventions. Youths are the future and without the proper support and guidance needed to be successful, as a society we will not continue to be successful.  On the American Psychological Association's website, one source specifically examines the importance of juvenile evaluations and treatment, particularly rehabilitation of juvenile offenders. The Forensic Evaluation and Treatment of Juveniles: Innovation and Best Practices, explores the "targeted rehabilitation services to avoid unfair treatment and redirect youth to healthier life choices." (Salekin, Randall T., 2015). I believe that by gaining the knowledge and skills through school, on the job learning and from peers and colleagues I can be a positive support for at-risk youths and juveniles who are already involved in the system. By providing healthy interventions to these youths, I feel as though I can be an asset to a population that is of the highest importance.
  • Before moving through diagnostic decision making, a social worker needs to conduct an interview that builds on a biopsychosocial assessment. New parts are added that clarify the timing, nature, and sequence of symptoms in the diagnostic interview. The Mental Status Exam (MSE) is a part of that process. The MSE is designed to systematically help diagnosticians recognize patterns or syndromes of a person’s cognitive functioning. It includes very particular, direct observations about affect and other signs of which the client might not be directly aware. When the diagnostic interview is complete, the diagnostician has far more detail about the fluctuations and history of symptoms the patient self-reports, along with the direct observations of the MSE. This combination greatly improves the chances of accurate diagnosis. Conducting the MSE and other special diagnostic elements in a structured but client-sensitive manner supports that goal. In this Assignment, you take on the role of a social worker conducting an MSE.   To prepare:
    1. Watch the video describing an MSE. Then watch the Sommers-Flanagan (2014) “Mental Status Exam” video clip. Make sure to take notes on the nine domains of the interview.
    2. Review the Morrison (2014) reading on the elements of a diagnostic interview.
    3. Review the 9 Areas to evaluate for a Mental Status Exam and example diagnostic summary write-up provided in this Week’s resources.
    4. Review the case example of a diagnostic summary write-up provided in this Week’s resources.
    5. Write up a Diagnostic Summary including the Mental Status Exam for Carl based upon his interview with Dr. Sommers-Flanagan.
    Submit a 2- to 3-page case presentation paper in which you complete both parts outlined below:  

    Part I: Diagnostic Summary and MSE

    Provide a diagnostic summary of the client, Carl. Within this summary include:
    • Identifying Data/Client demographics
    • Chief complaint/Presenting Problem
    • Present illness
    • Past psychiatric illness
    • Substance use history
    • Past medical history
    • Family history
    • Mental Status Exam (Be professional and concise for all nine areas)
      • Appearance
      • Behavior or psychomotor activity
      • Attitudes toward the interviewer or examiner
      • Affect and mood
      • Speech and thought
      • Perceptual disturbances
      • Orientation and consciousness
      • Memory and intelligence
      • Reliability, judgment, and insight
     

    Part II: Analysis of MSE

    After completing Part I of the Assignment, provide an analysis and demonstrate critical thought (supported by references) in your response to the following:
    1. Identify any areas in your MSE that require follow-up data collection.
    2. Explain how using the cross-cutting measure would add to the information gathered.
    3. Do Carl’s answers add to your ability to diagnose him in any specific way? Why or why not?
    4. Would you discuss a possible diagnosis with Carl at time point in time? Why?

Qualitative studies, meta-analytic studies, or purely descriptive research studies are not appropriate. Summarize the study in a two-page paper, focusing primarily on the methodology and the meaning of the output. Details of the procedure (for example, sampling) are not as important as a thorough discussion of the method and its meaning. Be sure to interpret the output using the terms and vocabulary we have studied. Include in the final section of your paper HOW this article is related to either 1) your proposed dissertation topic, or 2) your current career or field of interest.
  • Watch the TED Talk: Carol Dweck: The Power of Believing That You Can Improve. As you watch the video, also consider how goals (a component of personality) can impact success. Next, in your initial post, answer the following questions: How does thinking about goals differently (performance versus learning) affect performance and success? Do you believe, as the socio-cognitive theorists do, that all learning occurs in a social context with a dynamic and reciprocal interaction of the person, environment, and behavior? How can you apply these findings to your education, work, or personal life? Bring in information from the video to support your answers.

  • Let us explore appropriate use of the medical system and abuse of the medical system. When should an individual go to the emergency room as compared to their Primary Care Physician? There are forms of abuse on both sides of the stethoscope! At times physicians have been known to "Up-Charge" to increase their reimbursement from insurance. There have also been times when the standard of care, or care offered, to a given patient is different based upon the type of insurance, or even whether they have insurance. Individuals also abuse the medical system. Some patients seek services that are unnecessary as a form of drug seeking, either for personal use or to sell illegally. Some patients have allowed another individual to use their medical insurance information to receive covered services fraudulently. Seeking care in the emergency room for routine or non-emergent medical concerns is another common abuse. As you can see, there are plenty of instances on both sides of the stethoscope. Remember to be respectful and professional as you discuss this issue.
  • Assignment: Gender — Emotions

    What is the truth about males and females and their feelings and expression of emotion? The story is that women are emotional and freely express those emotions while men either don't have feelings or, if they do, do not express them. Even if this generalization were true, factors in addition to gender are at play, including the general culture in which each gender is raised and the expectations for behavior within that culture. In this Application Assignment, you will analyze the differences in emotion and emotional expression between men and women and explore factors that may influence these differences, including the environment, society, and culture. To prepare for this assignment:
    • Review Chapter 7 of the course text, Gender: Psychological Perspectives. Focus both on what the various studies and assessment results say about gender differences in specific cognitive abilities, as well as potential factors that might influence these differences.
    • Review the article, "Cross-Cultural Differences in Children's Emotional Reactions to a Disappointing Situation." Focus on this article as one example of what may be reasons for differences in emotional expression across cultures.
    • Think about ways in which emotions impact individuals and their relationships with others in work situations, school situations, and in family and personal relationships.
    • Consider how men and women you know typically respond emotionally. How are they similar and how are they different?
    • Think about what contributes to differences that do exist between the men and women you know. What role, if any, does culture play in the differences? What is the expectation or stereotype associated with the response of each gender?
    • Reflect on the impact of emotional responses or lack thereof on individuals and on society as a whole.
    The assignment (3 –5 pages):
    • Briefly explain one way in which emotion impacts others in a specific situation (in a meeting at work, in the classroom at school, on the team in sports, family dynamics, intimate relationships, etc.)
    • Choose one emotion in particular, and analyze gender differences in this emotion by addressing the following:
      • Briefly explain how the expectation or stereotype related to this emotion—the experience and expression of it—is different for each gender.
      • Briefly explain where the expectation or stereotype of this emotional feeling and expression come from.
    • Pick one culture that is different from your own in terms of expectations of emotion and gender. Explain how emotional expression is similar and different for this culture compared to your own.
    • Explain any conclusions or insights you have about gender and emotion based on your completion of this Assignment.
    Note: Be sure to protect the identity of any persons you describe.
    Note: Support the responses within your Assignment with evidence from the assigned Learning Resources, including in-text citations. Provide a reference list for resources you used for this Assignment.

These events can be activities such as church services, Bible/religious studies, community organization meetings, volunteer work at homeless shelters or food kitchens, attendance at support group meetings, fund-raising events, school-related meetings or activities, etc. The key thing is that these activities are sponsored by or provided for your particular cultural group. It is encouraged that you pray before attending and participating in these events, especially if you are considering attending a religious service outside of your faith tradition. You must spend at least 4 hours total engaged in these 2 events (approximately 2 hours per event). If you attend another cultural group’s church service, do not be surprised if the service is longer than you anticipated and if you are invited to a meal afterwards. Be aware that it may insult some cultural groups if you do not eat with them following the service. The entire event (church service plus meal) counts as 1 activity. With any activity, it is important that you interact with members of the cultural group to develop an understanding of the event and the motivations of individuals in participating in them. Consider some of these factors: · What are the purposes of the activity/event? · What are the cultural underpinnings? · What are the associated religious beliefs or values? · What are the social beliefs or values? · What are the political beliefs or values? · What are the economic beliefs or values? You will answer the questions listed below. First person may be used in your answers, and you must observe correct and current APA style. The paper must have a correct title page, and you must use a reference page (no abstract is needed). A word estimate is beside each question; however, the quality of your answer is more important than the word count. You may expand further, but you do not have to do so. It is recommended that you use the following questions as level 1 headings to organize your paper. 1. What events did you attend? What happened? (approximately 250 words) 2. How did your experience of actual cultural events compare with the expectations you had developed from the readings and Internet/media explorations you did in Cultural Immersion Project – Part 1? (approximately 250 words) 3. How did participation in these immersion events impact you emotionally? In other words, what was it like to be a minority in this group? (approximately 250 words) 4. As you consider your own cultural background, why do you think you responded the way you did? (approximately 250 words) 5. What are some key things that you have learned about this culture through these events? (approximately 250 words) 6. Discuss counseling theories and techniques that have been empirically validated as effective with this group. You can use the McGoldrick et al. text for this section, and peer reviewed articles. Use a minimum of three resources. (approximately 250 words). · Student identifies three theoretical approaches (i.e. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Reality Therapy, Person-Centered, etc.) that have been empirically validated as effective with the selected group (for any credit student must cite a peer reviewed journal supporting the use of the theory given). · Student identifies three counseling techniques (miracle question, reflective listening, thought-stopping techniques, mindfulness, etc.) that have been empirically validated as effective with the selected group (for any credit student must cite a peer reviewed journal supporting the use of the technique given). · Student describes how characteristics noted above relate to counseling with this group, including resilience building and eliminating obstacles and illuminating opportunities. Note that the research you do for Parts 1 and 2 is necessary for the completion of Part 3. Organize all the notes and resources you have gathered thus far to enable you to easily accomplish the final part of this project.

  • In responding to our classmates, comment on how their proposed applications of these concepts will affect their lives. Address any gaps you see in their reasoning, but be sure to substantiate your comments with citations from the textbook, the video, or from other research you have done in the course. Esther post How does thinking about goals differently (performance versus learning) affect performance and success? Performance vs learning can affect performance and success very differently for each person. Each person can look at a situation with different goals. While one person may look at a situation and try to learn as much as possible to achieve their goal, the other person may focus more on their performance while getting to that goal. The example that the book "Personality: Theory and Research" has is a perfect way to describe the difference; Suppose that you are working on a group project and are about to present your part of the project to others in the group who will discuss its strong and weak points. Right before the presentation, you might focus your attention on how their feedback will provide information that can help you to improve your work. If so, you have a learning goal: You are striving to learn from others, in order to increase your ability and achievement. Alternatively, you might focus on the personal impression you'll make on the other people; you might try to “look smart” and to avoid doing anything that will make you look stupid. If so, you would have a performance goal: the aim of “putting on a good performance” for others who will be evaluating your abilities. (Cervone & Pervin, 2016, p. 367) Do you believe, as the socio-cognitive theorists do, that all learning occurs in a social context with a dynamic and reciprocal interaction of the person, environment, and behavior? Yes, I believe that all learning occurs in a social context involving the person, environment, and behavior. The socio-cognitive theorists believed that we as a person can learn through our environment and through positive reinforcement, behaviors etc. can be changed. How can you apply these findings to your education, work, or personal life? For me, positive reinforcement is an important part of who I am as a person and as a mom. I have a 4 year old boy who thrives on positive reinforcement. Because of the TED Talk video of Carol Dweck, I have a new understanding of positive reinforcement. The "not yet" theory is amazing. I don't want to raise my kids to receive positive reinforcement for achieving and getting things "right". I want them to feel as if they are achieving their goal through effort and determination. I think a great example that this works is that I am always striving to incorporate the professor's feedback as I get my grades back. This shows me that I have worked hard, and that I will always have room to grow. Catherine post How does thinking about goals differently (performance versus learning) affect performance and success? Thinking about goals in terms of learning versus performance can have extremely different results in terms of performance and achievements.  When we start to think about achieving goals it is important to factor in terms of personal fulfillment. In our careers the value of learning should be most important and part of our personal goals.  A lot of young people go to school to socialize and learning becomes secondary. Some would argue, as long as they look good and are popular, then all they need is a passing grade. However, there are students more focused on succeeding and achieving. These students believe that they can excel by educating themselves. These students are more concerned with learning goals, whereas the social student is more interested in performance goals. (Cervone & Pervin, 2016, p. 368). Performance goals involve performing to the best of your ability. You want your abilities to show. Working on performance goals can be more stressful because some worry about how they are perceived which takes away from learning. The two goals affect performance and success depending on what your views on intelligence is and how it’s related to your performance or learning goal. People who believe that intelligence levels are fixed believe in entity theory and those “who believe that intelligence is a gradual believe in incremental theory” (Cervone & Pervin, 2016, p. 368). In Dweck’s research she was able to show that, “those who had performance goal scored less or lower than those with goal performance due to their level of anxiety or expectation, they tend to suffer high “test anxiety” (Dweck 2014). Dweck research suggested that, “praise should be specific, and it should point out behavior that influences outcomes” (Dweck 2014).  For example, praising my nephews study skills, will help him to focus on the skills he can influence, whereas praising his intelligence on something he can’t change, leaves him without a way to influence a positive outcome. Do you believe, as the socio-cognitive theorists do, that all learning occurs in a social context with a dynamic and reciprocal interaction of the person, environment, and behavior? I do believe that social cognitive theory applies to learning under the context that it can affect our behavior through environmental and social factors. “Bandura who created the concept of social cognitive theory believed that we change our behavior through constant reinforcement for a goal directed behavior” (Cervone & Pervin, 2016, p. 331). Bandura was able to illustrate that, “child A will eventual learn through process of learning over the behavior over and over again until eventually over time child A realizes that he would get desired reinforcement quicker through compliance” (Cervone & Pervin, 2016, p. 332-333). Remaining consistent and integrating constant reinforcement will prove to brings success. How can you apply these findings to your education, work, or personal life? These findings can be applied to my learning and performance goals, through the facts and feedback received from fellow students, my teachers and, my peers and my boss. This feedback is specific and helps me see which area needs improvement and which exceed expectations. I appreciate any help provided to me and appreciate other points of views; I might have overlooked. Feedback helps me to improve as a learner and allows me to create better performance goals.
  •  WEEK 3: SPATIAL PERFORMANCECOLLAPSE The cognitive ability of spatial performance is all about an object location and how it fits into the space round it. This includes the direction it may be facing, the angle it is, its location in relation to other objects, and the small details that makes it unique or similar to other objects. According to the textbook, American men seems to be slightly better in more areas of spatial skills than women when tested. Of course, this can change due to multiple variables or mental training. Spatial tasks does favoring men (Brannon, L., 2017, p. 179). Fortunately, women are better at memory tasks and identification. Due to this finding and pointing, it seems men are better at spatial skills. Also. it is believed that men are better at navigation and have clearer perception of their surroundings. This shows that men are believed to be able to excel in areas like video games and computer programming (Brannon, L., 2017, p. 181). It's hard to say that nature verses nurture being the cause of this perceived gender difference. I feel that nurture affects gender differences in spatial abilities more than nature. DIRECTIONS:

  • Introduction to APA Style and Avoiding Plagiarism

    Psychologists, including psychology students, write in the format and style of the American Psychological Association (APA), which is referred to as “APA Style.” APA style is used to provide a consistent writing and documentation format across the discipline of psychology and has been adopted by many psychology journals worldwide. Many other disciplines in the social sciences also utilize APA style. Learning the precise mechanics of APA style lends credibility to your writing, and helps researchers and academics alike follow ideas back to the original sources. APA style is also utilized as a means to prevent plagiarism. In addition to writing in APA style in your academic assignments, you might also find that you will need to know how to write in APA style if you have a job that involves conducting research, writing technical reports on clients’ progress, writing grants, and/or other types of manuscripts. Learning to write in APA style is essential to your success as a Psychology Major at Walden, as could be applied to your professional life. As you proceed through your program of study, you will practice writing in APA style so by the time you take your Capstone course you will be an expert! The assignment this week involves your participation and successful completion of two tutorial models designed to help you:
    • Understand the importance of giving proper credit to your sources in academic writing.
    • Understand the principles of paraphrasing and citation frequency in APA style.
    • Identify strategies for facilitating appropriate citation of sources in APA style.
    • Identify the necessary components to indicate a quote in APA style.
    • Demonstrate the appropriate way to quote a source in APA style.
    Psychologists, including psychology students, write in the format and style of the American Psychological Association (APA), which is referred to as “APA Style.” APA style is used to provide a consistent writing and documentation format across the discipline of psychology and has been adopted by many psychology journals worldwide. Many other disciplines in the social sciences also utilize APA style. Learning the precise mechanics of APA style lends credibility to your writing, and helps researchers and academics alike follow ideas back to the original sources. APA style is also utilized as a means to prevent plagiarism. In addition to writing in APA style in your academic assignments, you might also find that you will need to know how to write in APA style if you have a job that involves conducting research, writing technical reports on clients’ progress, writing grants, and/or other types of manuscripts. Learning to write in APA style is essential to your success as a Psychology Major at Walden, as could be applied to your professional life. As you proceed through your program of study, you will practice writing in APA style so by the time you take your Capstone course you will be an expert!

  • I NEED THIS ON 06/17/20 at 8:00pm. This week we explore the social-ecological model and the Swearer and Hymel (2015) article does a nice job of describing this model as applied to the problem of bullying. In working on your social change project this week you will be applying the social-ecological model to the topic you are addressing for your social change portfolio/project. The levels addressed in the social-ecological model in this article include individual, family, peer group, school, and community. Because of this specific topic, school is an important dimension. However, this dimension may not apply to your specific social change project depending on the target population. Thus, if "school" does not apply then you can simply have individual, family, peer group, and community. "Peer group" for someone who is not in school would simply include environments such as work, friends, social networks, and so forth. When writing this section, it is really easy to miss key points as you will be reviewing a lot of literature. It is best to organize your paper with subheadings such as: Individual In one-two paragraphs talk about protective factors. In one-two paragraphs talk about risk factors. Family In one-two paragraphs talk about protective factors In one-two paragraphs talk about risk factors etc. It is also very easy to forget to cite references.  Remember to back up any idea that isn't your own original idea with references. Social-Ecological Model This week you will apply the social-ecological model the problem you have identified to address in your community. Applying this model may be new for some of you. Indeed, for many people who are training to be therapists (e.g., clinical mental health counseling, clinical social work, marriage and family counseling, clinical psychology, etc.), the training often has more of a focus simply on the individual and the other levels according to the social-ecological model are often less heavily emphasized if at all. This systemic view can really help contextualize client and community challenges. The article by Swearer and Hymel (2015) in your course resources this week clearly demonstrates some important elements of the social-ecological model and of taking a systemic view of problems to be addressed. I look forward to reading how the model applies to the target problem in your community. Continuum of Care The continuum of care, posted below, is just a reminder to think about making your project and goal statement aligned with "Prevention".

  • Discussion 1: Defining Adulthood

    4-5 paragraphs. How cultures define adulthood vary dramatically. For some, adulthood may be religious celebration milestones and for others it may be based on a physical change or event. In still others, it may be based on legal factors such as, chronological age or marital status. For this Discussion, you will explore cultures and factors that establish adulthood. Also, you will examine the value and limitations of utilizing indicators to define adulthood.

  • Discussion: The Contribution of Classical Theorists to Contemporary Developmental Theorists

    While all major developmental theories attempt to explain the growth of individuals, each theory has a slightly different perspective. Some theories emphasize environmental (nurture) more than biological (nature) influences. Some theories focus on a particular construct (e.g., cognition), while others emphasize the impact of age range in shaping development. Piaget's cognitive developmental theory emphasizes fixed stages during which the mind's capacities allow an individual to learn about the world. Vygotsky's sociocultural theory, on the other hand, is not stage-based and describes growth as an interaction between the individual and his or her environment. Contemporary theories (e.g., Langer's theory of mindfulness) typically build upon the foundation generated by earlier theories. Langer's theory of mindfulness contains similarities to classical theories, such as Vygotsky's sociocultural theory, in that they both agree that development is contextual and the organism is an active "mindful" participant. Langer took Vygotsky's theory to a new level, focusing specifically on education and the learner. Other contemporary theories include neo-Piagetian cognitive developmental theories, which attempt to address the limitations found within Piaget's classical theory. Robbie Case, Andreas Demetriou, and Kurt Fischer proposed theories that were extensions of Piaget's theory. These theorists added concepts that expanded on cognitive functioning within the stages of development. Most developmental psychologists today do not believe that a single perspective or theory can sufficiently explain lifespan development; rather, an eclectic approach accounts for development better. For this Discussion, you will examine classical and contemporary developmental theories as they relate to current applications in developmental psychology. To prepare for this Discussion:
    • Review the course text and other Learning Resources related to mid-20th-century theories and recent theoretical perspectives
    • Select two theories from the following list, one from each column (classical, contemporary), that examine the same developmental processes (i.e., cognitive, physical, and/or social-emotional).
    Classical TheoriesContemporary Theories
    • Psychoanalytic/Psychosexual
    • Psychosocial
    • Behaviorism/Learning
    • Social Learning
    • Cognitive-Developmental
    • Information Processing
    • Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience
    • Ethology/Evolutionary Developmental
    • Sociocultural
    • Systems Theory
    By Day 4
    Post a brief description of the two theories you selected (one classical and one contemporary). Contrast the theories you selected. Specifically, identify important similarities and differences, including an explanation of the strengths and limitations of each theory in explaining developmental processes (i.e., cognitive, physical, and social-emotional). Note:Your descriptions should be in paragraph form, not bullet points. Use your Learning Resources and/or other scholarly sources to support your post. Use proper APA format and citations.

  • Now that you have chosen your research question (Is socially mediated reinforcement associated with children and compulsive eating behavior.) spend some time sharing your research question and your experiences using the library databases. Instructions (Write a discussion post elaborating on these questions and answers). 1.  What topic and research question did you pursue? Autism in children and compulsive eating disorder.   2.  How is your research question relevant to your passions and interests in psychology and to your purpose? It is relevant because I will be working with children experiencing this behavior. 3.  Reflecting on the Library Research Knowledge Assessment, what skill areas were recommended for improvement and what skill areas did you do well on? 4.  What strategies did you use to locate relevant articles? Made a research plan, focused on the psychology database, specified the most relevant key words for my search. 5.  Did you find Boolean commands (for example, AND, OR) confusing? What tips would you give others for learning these commands? Used some Boolean commands to optimize my research topic and connect information. I would recommend studying the Boolean commands or have a Table to remind you of how to use them accurately. 6.  What insights did you gather about your research question? This research question has been studied due to the increase number of cases in autism over the years and it is something that would benefit many individuals like stakeholders in these children’s life’s. 7.  What conclusions did you come to about the role of research in your future career vision? There have been many studies done in my future career that are backed up by evidence based practices and insurance companies. Applied Behavior Analysis works. However, it is still a fairly new practice and there are always ways to improve patient outcomes by fathering research.

  • Compare and Contrast Paper You are to locate one source of pop psychology and one source of empirical research and compare and contrast the merit of the information in each as follows: Begin by searching in the appropriate place for 2 sources that are fittingly related to each other on any topic in Psychology. Empirical research can only be found in professional journals. The easiest way to find a professional journal article is by accessing PsycINFO through the portal at my.saintleo.edu then locating the online Library. Pop psychology sources are newspapers, news magazines, tabloids, and other self-help articles found either online or on store shelves. Examples include articles by Dr. Phil, Dear Abby, Dr. Laura, Tony Robbins, etc. Articles in Psychology Today and WorldHealth.net are pop psychology and, although they may report on or refer to empirical research, they are not professional journal articles. To prepare your essay, you should think critically about the merit of the information in each article by asking the following questions about each: a.) What is the main issue, problem, or intention of the article? b.) In what way(s) does the article investigate various points of view and assumptions? c.) What evidence is provided to support the issue? d.) In what way(s) does the article discuss consequences and implications of the reasoning provided? e.) In what way(s) does the information provided help you make an informed decision about the purpose? Now, focus on the answers to the above questions and compare and contrast the 2 sets of information. Determine what your thesis is and state it clearly and concisely. It should briefly introduce your topic but more importantly should indicate that your purpose is to compare and contrast the merit of the pop psychology article with the merit of the empirical article. This will be the first sentence of your essay. In the body of your essay, you may do a whole-to-whole comparison of the 2 sets of information or you may do a (less common) point-to-point comparison. For a whole-to-whole comparison, address the information about one of the articles by discussing its merit using the critical thinking concepts above, then, do the same for the second article. For point-by-point, you should address the first important point about one article then that same point about the other, discuss a second point about one then the other, and so on. You will want to be very thorough in the body as this is a very large percentage of your grade on the essay. Your conclusion should summarize how the merit of the pop psychology article compares and contrasts with the merit of the empirical article, thus reaffirming your thesis without restating it. This is where you conclude with inferences, clearly address implications or consequences of accepting the given information, and culminate any assertions.
  • Conjoined Twins and Split Brain Patients As often is the case in science, the study of unique phenomenon can provide a wealth of knowledge and information about normal occurrences. This is true with regard to case studies of both split brain patients and conjoined twins. The unique experiences of these patients have contributed a great deal to our understanding of how the brain functions in a range of both normal and extraordinary circumstances. Split brain patients are people who have had surgery to cut the corpus callosum, which you may recall, is the main pathway connecting the two halves of the cortex. Often this procedure was done to alleviate symptoms of epilepsy. These patients acted normal enough so that for the first few years after such surgeries were performed, physicians reported that there were no consequences of the procedure. Over the years, however, careful behavioral studies revealed that these patients appeared to have two minds at work in one body. One mind, mediated by the left hemisphere, could talk and respond to questions, while the other mind, in the right hemisphere, could only communicate by gestures and action. Remarkably, the left brain seemed to be unaware that another mind controlled half of the body. In the case of dicephalic parapagus conjoined twins, (twins who share a body but have separate brains) it is clear that there are two minds because there are two separate brains and each of them can communicate. In craniopagus conjoined twins, there are two separate bodies but a shared brain or portions of brain. The range of behavior, from relatively normal to unique, of split brain patients and conjoined twins raises questions about what it means to be a “person.” For this week’s Discussion, you compare and contrast split brain patients and conjoined twins, and explore what “personhood” means in light of what these patients can teach us about the brain and its functions. With these thoughts in mind: Explain how split-brain patients demonstrate the organization of the brain. Then, describe two similarities and two differences between split brain patients and conjoined twins. Finally, define “personhood” in your own words as it relates to split brain patients or conjoined twins and use the current literature to support your definition. APA format Plagiarism free

  • Individuals can experience trauma from public events at the national level or extremely private ones at the interpersonal level. In this Discussion, you analyze these two types of trauma, describing potential interventions and their effectiveness.   To prepare: Read the DSM-5 section on trauma and stressor-related disorders and review the Learning Resources on PTSD, disaster response, and trauma. ATTACHED   Then search the literature for studies related to an evidence-based intervention used to treat those suffering from trauma and stressor-related issues. Specifically, locate the following:  
    • One study on treating symptoms resulting from a national traumatic event (e.g., natural disaster, mass shooting, war)
    • One study on treating symptoms resulting from an interpersonal trauma (e.g., rape, childhood sexual molestation, domestic violence)
      Post a 2 page response in which you address the following:
    • Post the APA references for the two studies you located.
    • Provide a brief description of the traumatic events, including a summary of how they affected the individuals involved.
    • Describe the interventions discussed in the articles and explain how they addressed the psychosocial issues and needs of the individuals affected by the trauma.
    • Explain the effectiveness of the interventions, as stated in the articles.
    • Analyze and discuss the similarities and differences in the individuals’ needs depending on whether the issues occurred due to a national traumatic event or an interpersonal trauma.
    Support your post with specific references to the resources. Be sure to provide full APA citations for your references.
  • Please read instructions and rubric before sending me anything! I have attached all files for requirements. 4MAT Review Instructions The 4MAT Review system is a way of responding to readings that requires you to interact with new ideas on several levels. Your 4MAT Reviews must each be 4-5 pages.  Use the following format in preparing your 4MAT Reviews: Summary After identifying the title, author, and date of the book, summarize what you have read as if you were the author condensing the book into 400 tight words. Prove that you comprehend the readings by writing a no-nonsense summary. This section is not a commentary or listing of topics, but rather an in-depth, insightful “précis” of the content. Concrete Responses Get vulnerable! In 250 words, relate a personal life experience that this book connected within your own life. Relate your story in first person, describing action and quoting sentences you remember hearing or saying. In the teaching style of Jesus, this is a do-it-yourself parable, case study, and/or confession. You will remember almost nothing you have read unless you make this critical, personal connection. What video memory began to roll? This is your chance to tell your story and make new ideas found in the book your own. Reflection What new questions arise for you in response to what you have read? Keep a rough note sheet at hand as you read. Begin with questions like, “What would I like further information on?” Where do I not agree/strongly agree with the author?” or “What bothers me/excites me about this content?” This section should be about 250 words. Application How does the information in the book influence how you are going to continue your own personal/professional growth process? What actions or changes are you going to make in your life as a result of your learning? Your response here is a matter of obedience first, questions later. Be precise in summarizing your action steps. This section should be about 250 words. Please note: Your grade on each 4MAT Review depends on the manner in which you address each of these 4 dimensions of response to readings. 4MAT Review 1 covers Gottman and Silver's entire book, The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work

  • You have already identified many resources in your network—in this class and outside the university—and within the wider Walden community. Support is best used when you know what you need; it is hard to get support in building a ladder if you do not know what a ladder looks like. If you have an idea of what a ladder looks like, you can ask for rungs and nails and a hammer. Think of the resources offered by Walden as the rungs and nails for your ladder, but you are the one who must design the ladder. A PDP allows you to design your ladder and identify which supports you need to build it. Remember that you must help your classmates and colleagues along the way with their ladders too. Think of what you need to give, as well as what you will need to receive, in terms of support and help. A PDP explains how you, individually, came to the decision to begin your graduate studies, what you envision for yourself and others when you complete the degree, and what objectives or steps you need to define in order to realize your dream and become your previously envisioned “future self.” You will refer to your PDP when you want to check your progress or re-evaluate your goals. It should be motivating and related to the mission of Walden, your mission, and the community of your colleagues. Remember, we are all in this together. PowerPoint presentations will be used in many of your courses at Walden. This Assignment will also provide an opportunity for you to become familiar with, or become a more advanced user of, PowerPoint as a communication tool. NOTE: You are strongly encouraged to submit this Assignment as a PowerPoint presentation, but if you are having difficulty with the software, you may submit it as a Word document with sufficient notes to explain each “slide.” Please feel free to contact your Instructor if you need any support with this Assignment. To prepare for this Project: Prepare a PowerPoint presentation of your PDP using no more than 6–8 slides. The PDP should incorporate elements within your specific Program Tab and must address the following: Where have you been in your life personally and professionally that has brought you to this point? What is your motivation in choosing this career; why did you choose this profession and aspiration? How do your personal and professional community factor in to the realization of your aspirations—what support mechanisms do you have in place to help you meet your goals? What are the things you foresee that might get in the way of your plan, and how will you overcome them as well as help others overcome theirs? Share about your future self. Where do you want to go professionally, and how will you leverage your Walden experience to become this person? What is the best advice you would give yourself now from the point of success when you finish? Make use of the Notes section within PowerPoint to provide the details of your presentation. Your presentation should be explicit in its detail about what you plan to do at Walden to meet your personal and professional goals.

  • As with all areas of the social work process, cultural competence is essential when engaging and assessing a child’s concerns. Being culturally competent includes understanding the unique needs of your client and asking how those needs can be fulfilled. Using an empowerment perspective treating clients as experts on their lives and their needs is essential. Not only does this establish your commitment to being culturally sensitive and aware, but it will enhance the therapeutic relationship. While it is essential to learn and master social work skills and techniques to be a successful practitioner, another significant indicator of a successful intervention is the relationship a social worker builds with his or her client. Some research suggests that the quality of the therapeutic relationship will account for 30% of the clinical outcome of the treatment (Miller, Duncan, and Hubble, 2005, as stated in Walsh, 2010, p. 7). Exhibiting a dedication to learning about a client’s culture, history, and current environmental factors exemplifies a social worker’s desire to build that client–worker bond. For this Assignment, read the case study for Claudia and find two to three scholarly articles on social issues surrounding immigrant families.

  • In Unit 2, you selected one standardized test that has relevancy to your academic and professional goals to be the focus of your course project. Your Unit 2 assignment focused on the first four elements of the Code for selecting a test. For this assignment, you will complete a deeper analysis of the technical quality of your selected test by focusing on the fifth element of the Code, which states that the test user will "evaluate evidence of the technical quality of the test provided by the test developer and any independent reviews." To complete this assignment, you will draw upon the knowledge you gained in Units 3 and 4 about psychometrics in general and reliability and validity in particular. For this assignment, use the test you selected for your assignment in Unit 2. Locate and summarize a minimum of seven articles related to the technical qualities of the selected test. You are encouraged to use the PSY7610 Library Research Guide, linked in the resources, to assist your search. For each article: · List the APA reference for each journal article (a minimum of seven). · Identify if the article addresses reliability or validity. · Discuss if the article addresses sources of error variance, reliability estimates, evidence of validity, or bias and fairness. · Identify the specific type of reliability or validity (for example, test-retest reliability, predictive validity, et cetera). · Identify the overall results of the research, including any psychometric or statistical outcome. Submit your analysis as a paper using the outline provided in the section "Organize Your Paper" below. Guidelines for Selecting the Literature Use the most current sources you can find. Do not use sources older than 8 years. (You may cite older sources if they are classics, if you want to show the chronology of something, or if you have another good reason. If you choose to use older sources, you will need to explain why.) Use current, peer-reviewed journal articles. Do not use sources without an author or a publication date. Do not use quotes; use only your own words. Please see the Academic Integrity and Plagiarism link in the resources for concerns with high content matching in papers. Evaluate whether the results support the use of your test as appropriate for your field and populations to be served. Note: The articles you need to complete this assignment should be available inside the library collection. In future courses, you may use the Capella library's Interlibrary Loan service to obtain articles outside of the collection, but you should not have to use the service for this course. In the event that you cannot find articles covering a newer test edition, please refer to the List of Tests by Type document, linked in the resources. Note which tests have been designated as acceptable for searching prior test editions. Organize Your Paper For your paper, use the following headings: 1. Title page (required). 2. Abstract (optional). 3. Introduction. o Identify the standardized test you selected in Unit 2. o Describe briefly the publisher's stated purpose for its use. o Identify briefly a population or psychological condition that is within the standardization of the test. 4. Technical review article summaries. Each article is to be directly related to your chosen test and one aspect of its technical quality. Note: Use an annotated bibliography for evaluative information format. (See the resources for additional information available at Capella about annotated bibliographies.) o List the APA reference for each journal article (a minimum of seven). o Identify if the article addresses reliability or validity. o Explain how the article addresses sources of error variance, reliability estimates, evidence of validity, or bias and fairness. o Identify the specific type of reliability or validity (for example, test-retest reliability, predictive validity, et cetera). o Identify the overall results of the research, including any psychometric or statistical outcome. 5. Conclusion. o Synthesize the information from all the articles you reviewed about reliability. o Synthesize the information from all the articles you reviewed about validity. o Evaluate if your test continues to be deemed as appropriate for your planned use in the field and with the population to be served. 6. References (required, use current APA format and style). Additional Requirements Your paper should meet the following requirements: · References: A minimum of seven journal articles (textbooks, web pages, literature reviews, and the MMY book reviews do not count for these references). · Length of paper: Evaluation must be at least five pages in length for content (not including title page, abstract, or references).
