Discuss your experiences of the course, your beginnings, and where you are now. Consider your interaction in discussions.

Introduction In this session, you have been considering moral-ethical dilemmas you yourself faced or that you know of that you either resolved or failed to resolve, but hopefully learned from. You may never have given much thought to ethical theory nor what ethical premises/paradigms you have unconsciously held.

You will be focusing on this case for this assignment:

Jane Doe is a nursing student at University X. Jane is in week eight of a course entitled: “Introduction to Ethics”.

For the week one discussion, Jane copied work done by her friend John Doe in the same class two months ago (with a different professor). John told Jane it was okay to use his work as John’s professor never checked any work in the class using Turnitin.com. John claimed….

Patient History

Mai-jen Chou, is 64 years of age with a history of type 2 diabetes, asthma, hypertension, and degenerative joint disease. She presents to a general medicine clinic with persistent lower back pain. Her sister, Tian (age 68) has accompanied her to the clinic. Mai-jen reports that for the last few months, she has been experiencing aching pain in the lower lumbar area. It is worse with exertion. The pain is fairly localized, without radiation. She does not experience any tingling, numbness, or weakness. There is no history of trauma.

Mai-jen does exhibit some tenderness to palpation in the lower lumbar area. She notes that she tries to remain active, walking about 2 to 3 miles, 3 or….

Week 4: Putting It All Together: Differential Diagnosis and Neurodevelopmental Disorders

Clinicians often have to employ multiple skills simultaneously while engaging with clients. Not least among them are reflective listening, information gathering and sensitive questioning, recording key responses, observing for signs of syndromes, and identifying the chief complaints. This week you address the complex process for identifying and distinguishing among similar diagnostic syndromes.

This process begins in the diagnostic interview. Research of skilled clinicians shows that forming diagnostic impressions too quickly increases the risk of errors in diagnosis. Every clinician should be evaluating differential diagnoses at the diagnostic interview and beyond. While social workers want to resolve their own uncertainty, using the formal steps of a decision tree ensures accuracy. A decision tree is especially important when all….

use of research data to guide the development of social work interventions on the micro, mezzo and/or macro-levels. Kearney (2001) described ways qualitative research findings can inform practice.

Evidence-based social work practice calls for the use of research data to guide the development of social work interventions on the micro, mezzo and/or macro-levels. Kearney (2001) described ways qualitative research findings can inform practice. Qualitative findings can help social workers understand the clients’ experiences and “what it may feel like” (Kearney, 2001). Therefore, social workers can develop clinical interventions that take into account the experiences of their clients. Qualitative findings can also help social workers monitor their clients. For example, if after reading a qualitative study on how domestic violence survivors respond to stress, they can monitor for specific stress behaviors and symptoms (Kearney, 2001). In addition, they can educate their client what stress behaviors to look for and teach them specific interventions to reduce stress (Kearney,….

review this week’s resources.

Supporting a loved one in the military is truly a duty of its own. It is even more so if the military personnel suffers from trauma related to their military experiences. As a helping professional taking this course, it is likely you have studied suicide, motivations for suicide, ideations, assessments, and interventions.Think about what the family of an active duty military personnel or a veteran might face if their loved one becomes suicidal. How does the family react? What recourse does a family have? Could it be different for active duty personnel versus a veteran? For this Assignment, review this week’s resources.

The Assignment (1 page):

Craft a support plan for a military family. Include strategies or steps for military families for intervening with the loved one who….

Identify the areas that should be addressed in an intervention based on his or her developmental stage.

Understanding an adolescent’s behavior can be at times elusive and even frustrating. Due to the multiple aspects of the developmental tasks during these years, it can be at times quite challenging to clearly define the issue(s) at hand. Assessment during this stage will include an evaluation of whether an adolescent’s actions are indicative of unhealthy behavior or merely representative of being an adolescent. A comprehensive assessment that includes an evaluation of the client’s developmental stage is a priority when working with this age group.

For this Discussion, choose the opposite case from Discussion 1 and use Erikson’s developmental theory.

How will you divide participants into a control and treatment group?

Throughout Predictably Irrational, we are presented with research that shows us that while we think we are in the driver’s seat of our decisions, we are “pawns in a game whose forces we largely fail to comprehend.” For this question, we would like you to become a behavioral economist. You will describe a situation where you have seen people behave in a manner that is irrational. Then we would like you to design an experiment which explains this irrationality. How will you divide participants into a control and treatment group? What potential issues might your experiment face? How would you overcome those issues? And finally, while you

obviously cannot perform your experiment, what answers might you find that explain why your subjects behaved so irrationally?
