Victim Assistance

National databases such as VINELink (Victim Information and Notification Everyday) provide updates regarding the incarceration status of offenders. By registering, victims receive updates when an offender is transferred, released, or leaves custody for any other reason. Victims can receive text messages, emails, or even phone calls regarding these updates.

Identify at least two ways this information may affect a victim.

In your replies to your classmates, illustrate additional resources that may be beneficial to victims, based on the initial post.

PSYCHOSOCIAL PERSONALITY DISORDER

PSYCHOSOCIAL PERSONALITY DISORDER

To prepare for this discussion, read the instructor guidance and watch the videos Creating Your Research Proposal (Links to an external site.) and How to Write a Research Proposal? 11 Things to Include in a Thesis Proposal (Links to an external site.). Your initial post should be 250 to 300 words. Utilize a minimum of two peer-reviewed sources that were published within the last 10 years and are documented in APA style, as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

The purpose of this discussion assignment is to familiarize you with the purpose and components of a research proposal, and to allow an opportunity for you to get some feedback on your ideas for the Final Paper.

In your initial post,

  • Briefly describe the purpose of a research proposal and its components.
  • Present your research question and/or hypothesis.
  • Give some background information on the topic, including citing one or two previous related studies with their references.
  • Name the research design you would like to use.
  • Defend why you feel it is the most appropriate way to study your research question.
  • Discuss potential ethical issues that might arise and whayou would do to address them.

Document your sources in APA style (Links to an external site.), with in-text citations and references listed at the end of the post. For additional guidance see the Citing Within Your Paper (Links to an external site.) and Formatting Your References List (Links to an external site.) resources from the Ashford Writing Center.

Guided Response: Read several classmates’ posts and respond to at least two of them. Do you agree with your colleague’s choice of research design for investigating the proposed research question? Why or why not? Can you suggest another approach or provide additional background information on the topic that could be useful in your colleague’s final proposal? Can you see any ethical concerns that were not mentioned by your colleague? Check your own thread for replies and respond to suggestions from others.

Gender Psychology

There are several perspectives on how humans develop gender. Older perspectives that emphasized biological differences between males and females have given way to newer perspectives that account for the roles of both biology (e.g., hormones) and environment. When psychologists refer to the environment, they mean the social factors or socialization agents such as peers, family, school, and media, through which a person comes to understand and develop a gender identity. Although many perspectives are in agreement that socialization agents influence gender development, they differ in their conceptualizations of how, why, and to what degree this occurs.

These perspectives have been studied and formulated into theories. Freud led the way with psychoanalytic theories of gender development, suggesting early unconscious drives were the foundation of gender development. Social learning theories are founded in reinforcement and observational models suggesting that gender development is learned. Cognitive development theories suggest that gender differences develop by observation of gender consistencies, gender schemata, or gender scripts within a culture. Whatever the theory, gender roles differ in different cultures.

In this Assignment, you will analyze the gender development of an individual through the lenses of two gender development theories. You will also evaluate the relative strengths and weaknesses of the two theories in explaining the individual’s development.

To prepare

  • Consider the key socialization agents (culture, family, school, peers, media, or other societal influences) that influence gender development.
  • Consider the theories presented in the Learning Resources (biosocial theories, psychoanalytic theories, social learning theory, and gender-schema theory) and select two to use for this Assignment.
  • Interview an individual you know or complete a self-analysis regarding the key socialization agents (influences) in this person’s or your life regarding gender development. Use the questions in the document “Gender Analysis Questions” in this week’s Learning Resources to guide your interview or self-analysis.

Write a 2- to 3-page paper in which you do the following:

  • Briefly introduce the individual you interviewed (or yourself), including the person’s gender identity.
  • Summarize the key gender development socialization agents for this individual.
  • Identify the two theories you selected, and briefly summarize how each would explain the individual’s gender development. ((biosocial theories, psychoanalytic theories, social learning theory, and gender-schema theory) and select two to use for this Assignment.
  • Explain the relative strengths and weaknesses of each theory in explaining the gender development of the individual.

Patient Recommendations/Plan

Your final paper will require you to develop a final action plan for your client avatar Diabetic Patient (profile attached). The action plan will require you to take into account the client’s health risk(s), diagnosis, psychosocial factors, and confidence in his/her ability to change, in order to outline the specific steps you would implement to promote behavior change.

The final plan will include five parts:

• Goals: Select one behavior that your client would like to change, and list five S.M.A.R.T. goals that are specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and trackable for behavior change.

• Barriers: Assess psychosocial factors that may influence the client’s health, wellness, and treatment.

• Strategies to Address Barriers: Apply three counseling techniques and three motivational interviewing strategies to help the client overcome barriers to change. At least one of the counseling techniques must be implemented in a group setting.

• External Support: Discuss how you would incorporate the client’s family, spouse, or caregivers into the action plan. Next, identify three individuals to be a part of your client’s care team.

• Follow-up Plan: Describe how you will follow-up with the client to sustain healthy behaviors between visits and after termination. Recommend two social and/or environmental resources (e.g., peer-led groups, patient education classes) for ongoing support.

For this assignment, you will be creating an annotated bibliography that will later be used to reference and be included in your final action plan for your avatar. First, locate at least three scholarly sources from the university library applicable to the counseling interventions and behavior change models that you intend to reference in your final paper.  Second, locate two scholarly sources that address external support and aftercare plans. Lastly, explain why these resources would be appropriate for your client avatar Diabetic Patient.

Submit a two- to three- page annotated bibliography with your five scholarly sources.  Each source must include an APA formatted reference, as well as four to five well-developed sentences in which you summarize each source.  Use scholarly sources (peer-reviewed journal articles, research studies, and government websites) from the university library that were published within the last five years. Popular internet sites such as Wikipedia are not considered scholarly sources. You will receive feedback on your annotated bibliography to help you make your Final Paper more effective.

The Annotated Bibliography

• Must be two to three double-spaced pages in length (not including title and reference pages) and formatted according to APA style.

• Must include a separate title page with the following:

o Title of paper

o Student’s name

o Course name and number

o Instructor’s name

o Date submitted

• Must use at least five scholarly sources in addition to the course text.

• Must document all sources in APA style.

• Must include a separate reference page that is formatted according to APA style.

meta-analyses

According to the APA manual (p. 10),

“Literature reviews, including research syntheses and meta-analyses, are critical evaluations of material that has already been published. In meta-analyses, authors use quantitative procedures to statistically combine the results of studies. By organizing, integrating,and evaluating previously published material, authors of literature reviews consider the progress of research toward clarifying a problem. In a sense, literature reviews are tutorials, in that authors

  • define and clarify the problem;
  • summarize previous investigations to inform the reader of the state of research;
  • identify relations, contradictions, gaps, and inconsistencies in the literature; and
  • suggest the next step or steps in solving the problem.

The components of literature reviews can be arranged in various ways (e.g., by grouping research based on similarity in the concepts or theories of interest, methodological similarities among the studies reviewed, or the historical development of the field).”

For this assignment, you will create an annotated bibliography and an outline, two documents that will help you create your research paper due in week 7.

  • The annotated bibliography should be formatted using the example provided.  For this week you are only required to have 5 peer-reviewed articles in your annotated bibliography, but you will need a total of 10 articles for your first draft in Week 6 and your final paper in Week 7.
  • The outline should include your paper topic and the anticipated sections for your paper (no more than 3 main sections). Under each area include detailed information, including the purpose of that section in relation to the paper. This outline is not complete or final, but should provide enough detailed information so that you may receive helpful feedback for this paper.

Be sure to use APA format, including a cover page and reference section.  Include in-text citations to show what sources you will use for each section.

WHAT CAUSES ANXIETY IN AFRICAN AMERICAN TEENS WITH ADHD

For this assignment, your goal is to present what you have learned about your topic across all of the articles you gathered and read. If your thoughts have evolved since you turned into your outline, it is OK to deviate from what you submitted in your outline last week! You are encouraged to:

  • Use headings within your literature review to guide the reader through your thoughts as you summarize the key points you want to make.
  • Be scholarly, but don’t use overcomplicated language. Be direct. Do not use colloquial expressions, and do not use first person (e.g., “I,” “me,” “my”).
  • Do not simply write a paper that brings the reader through a summary of what you read article-by-article (like mini article critiques). Instead, each paragraph should be about a different point you want to make about your topic and what the combined literature demonstrates about that point. Expect to use multiple citations in each paragraph.
  • Take a look at the introduction for the article you critiqued in Week 3 if you are unsure how to write your literature review. Notice how their literature review is focused on topics and a synthesis of others’ research and theory. Model your structure, tone, and “flow of thoughts” after theirs. Also, note how the authors have used citations and where they are placed.
  • Create a References page that only uses references (not annotations). Be sure that your page lists your references in the proper order and that formatting and punctuation are correct.

To accomplish these goals, students are strongly encouraged to use the services of the Graduate Online Writing Studio.  The Professor will monitor individual student use of the Graduate Online Writing Studio AND how students apply the recommended changes.

BONUS OPPORTUNITY: Students that use the services of the Graduate Online Writing Studioduring Week 6 will discuss their experience during the Week 7 discussion (e.g., how easy the process was, what type of feedback they got, how the service helped improve writing skills).  If students do not use the Writing Studio

Length of blog: 4-6 pages, not including title and reference pages. Support your blog with a minimum of three scholarly sources.

Your blog must be effectively designed and must meet the following criteria:

  1. Locates a website that your professor can easily access. It is suggested that you use a free website such as http://www.wordpress.com/.
  2. Contains text that is readable (e.g., appropriate size of font, type of font, contrasts with background, contains sufficient white space).
  3. Includes information within the blog that supports the assignment.
  4. Ensures all the links are active and work.
  5. Contains at least one graphic.
  6. Contains the same template throughout with a consistent design.

Your blog should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your submission should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards where appropriate. Be sure to adhere to Northcentral University’s Academic Integrity Policy.

Technology And Psychology Professionals

In recent years, the psychology profession has been greatly influenced by various forms of technology. The prevalence of psychology professionals using technology to market themselves and engage, socialize, and interact with others has created new opportunities and challenges. This is particularly true with regard to potential interactions with clients via these technologies. Given the exponential growth with which these technological advancements are permeating our world, we expect to see the proliferation of new issues, challenges, and opportunities within the realms of psychological research and practice.

In your initial post:

  • Provide an overview of the relevant issues, ongoing trends, challenges, and future opportunities for psychology professionals and the populations they serve.
  • Explain how the APA’s Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct can be used to guide decisions in the ethical application of these technologies.
  • Construct clear and concise arguments using evidence-based psychological concepts and theories to explain how current technological and policy shifts may influence trends in psychological research and practice.
  • Evaluate potential work settings where the use of technologies promotes ease and convenience for both psychology professionals and the populations they serve.

What are the potential responsibilities of the psychology professionals as providers of care with regard to the use of these technologies? Does the increase in ease, convenience, and experience satisfaction for the parties involved outweigh any potential negative outcomes?
