[SOLVED] Museum Reflection Project

Museums are a reflection of the humanities because they collect and curate items that teach us about the human condition in a variety of cultural settings. To complete this assignment, take the following steps:1. Read the following article:A History of Museums: “The Memory of Mankind” (Links to an external site.)2. Pick any single major local museum to visit. You can get in free with your college ID at the McNay, the San Antonio Museum of Art, and the Institute of Texan Cultures. All these museums also have free days for the general public should you decide to take others with you who don’t have Alamo Colleges IDs. You may choose any museum you wish, however. You MUST visit the museum in person this semester.If you have special circumstances (including Coronavirus concerns) that would make this difficult, please let me know.  CORONAVIRUS VIRTUAL ALTERNATIVE–Take one of the virtual tours at any of the museums/collections on Google Culture at this link:Google Culture Museums and Collections (Links to an external site.)You must choose ONLY ONE museum, just as you would for an in-person museum trip.3. Select any three of the values we are studying in this class (individualism, family, community, spirituality). While you are at the museum, look for exhibits or individual pieces that help you connect to the values you select. Take photos (if allowed) and notes. Including photos in your paper, either ones you take yourself or graphics from the museum’s website, is mandatory.  The photos must be integrated into the paper, not tacked on at the end or in a separate file. You may also include video or music files within the paper as appropriate.4. Write a first-person essay of at least 1500 words to reflect on your visit to the museum and how it helped you better understand the humanities. You may address points about the history of museums in your work also, but you must connect the three values you selected to the museum itself and the pieces/exhibits you select.5. You must use at least four class sources (including the museum article linked above, which is a mandatory source).  They can be any combination of introductory and disciplinary sources. You may also use the museum’s website for the paper as well as sites with .org or .edu domains. Ask me for approval if you are unsure about whether a site is acceptable.Due to the very tight turnaround time for grades, I cannot grant any extensions on this assignment. If an emergency arises, contact me immediately for an Incomplete contract.https://artsandculture.google.com/partner?hl=en

[SOLVED] Policy Testimonial

The hypothetical scenario: You are an expert witness testifying at a Senate Committee hearing. You will be writing a transcript of what you would say during your testimonial. Your audience consists of senators and their aides; some of them may be knowledgeable about the topic but many will need to be informed of the justifications for your position. You must advocate a particular position on the topic (for or against a specific policy), and you will be expected to provide evidence for all the claims you make (with data from reputable sources).Format: Start with a statement that attracts attention and summarizes the issue. Use this introduction to clarify the issue AND to claim your position on how best to address the issue with regard to policy development or policy change. What is the problem you are addressing? Why is it a significant and impactful problem? What policy or regulation is needed or should change? Next, define three main points that support your position. Each point should be developed with a general statement of the position, an elaboration that references data from reputable sources, and perhaps a compelling related experience or vignette. What is known about harms, barriers, or inequities for this problem? How do current policies contribute to these challenges?Conclude by restating your position on the issue, reflecting on the succession and importance of your arguments, and drawing a logical final conclusion about how policymakers should maintain, change, remove, or modify some policy, law, or regulation. What are you asking the Senate to change and what are the implications for this change if achieved?FIVE PAGES MAXIMUM, excluding references, typed and double-spaced. Follow APA-style (7th ed.). Ensure that your spelling, punctuation, grammar, and syntax are correct. Please proofread!Tips: Be concise, and the arguments should be substantiated and logical. This is a professional paper and should be written in a formal style. Keep your voice active. Stay focused on your point of view throughout the testimonial. Focus on logical arguments and proven facts, not opinions or speculations. Assume familiarity with basic concepts but define any complex terms or concepts. Familiarize yourself with supporting evidence for both sides (for and against the policy changes you are recommending) to prepare your proposal. Quote sources to establish authority. Summarize the arguments and evidence for the opposing stance, then refute.RESOURCES        Textbook: “Social Policies to Address Social Problems,” Chapter 17 (pp. 597–633) Hooyman, N. R., & Kiyak, H.

[SOLVED] Health Age

HLTH AGE 2N03 Essay AssignmentIn 5-6 pages, students should answer one of the following questions, using at least SIX peer-reviewed sources. Non-peer reviewed sources (including pop magazines like Psychology Today) are highly discouraged. Be sure to use proper APA parenthetical citations and to include a bibliography (which doesn’t count against the page limit). Your essay should clearly answer the question. Students interested in writing on other topics MUST clear it with the instructor at least 10 days before the deadline.1) Electroconvulsive treatment (ECT) looked to be disappearing from the toolkit of psychiatry in the 1960s and 1970s, only to experience a resurgence towards the end of the 20th century and early 21st century. How can we best explain this renewed use, especially with so many less controversial treatments available?2) Recent decades have witnessed heated discussions over the utility of many treatments, such as ECT, SSRI medications, and psychoanalysis. It has been suggested that the debates over treatment within the world of mental healthcare are far more polarized and rancorous than equivalent debates in other medical specialties. Why has this been the case?3) Over the past ten years, many major pharmaceutical companies have shut down their research and development teams dedicated to discovering new psychopharmaceuticals. Such a move was surprising for many people, given the profitability of mental health divisions. How can we explain this development?4) In the last decade or so, it has become increasingly common for students in elementary and secondary school to be taught mindfulness in the classroom. Although this development was welcomed at first, some scholars have begun to question this widespread practice. How can we best explain the reluctance to see mindfulness programming expanded?5) In the hopes of treating alcoholism, some Canadian communities have recently opened up “managed alcohol programs.” Such programs, unsurprisingly, have also met with resistance. What will be necessary for such treatment programs to overcome this resistance?6) The Ontario government recently made it necessary for anyone calling themselves a psychotherapist to obtain a license to practice. Some have suggested the same be extended to others whose interventions rely on talking, such as “counsellors” and “life coaches.” Should a license be required to use talk interventions? Why or why not?In terms of sources, it’s a good idea to start with McMaster’s article databases: (https://library.mcmaster.ca/articles_azlist/all), which are more focused than Google Scholar. Some of the better ones include: America: History and Life, Academic OneFile, Anthropology Plus, Arts & Humanities Citation Index (Web of Science), Historical Abstracts, JSTOR, Social Sciences Abstracts, Scholars Portal, and Sociological Abstracts. You might also investigate PsycInfo and PubMed. More info: https://library.mcmaster.ca/guides/. Although strictly medical sources might be useful, you’ll likely get much more from taking an interdisciplinary approach to your search. Thus, we strongly encourage you to make use of the types of databases listed above.

[SOLVED] The Society for Spirituality and Social Work

The assessment and incorporation of a client’s spirituality has become increasingly common in the field of social work. While historically social workers were trained to avoid discussions centered on religion, we now know that spirituality encompasses many ways of believing. “The Society for Spirituality and Social Work is a network of social workers and other helping professionals dedicated to spiritually sensitive practice and education” (Society for Spirituality and Social Work, n.d.). Addressing a client’s spirituality allows for a biopsychosocial holistic approach that can aid in the process of understanding illness, disability, and end-of-life issues.Assignment:For this Discussion, review the required resources and locate one scholarly article addressing spirituality with the elderly.Post your explanation of the significance of addressing spirituality with the elderly. Identify a spiritually based intervention for this population. Describe the effectiveness of the use of spirituality with the elderly as found in the literature. Then, describe your own thoughts on the use of spirituality in an intervention.Support your posts with specific references to the Learning Resources. Be sure to provide full APA citations for your references.Then you will respond to 2 colleagues once I upload their posts.
