For social workers, the potential conflict between personal and professional ethics can be a source of great contention. Abortion is a highly politicized and contested topic. It is also one that reflects great diversity in terms of opinion, personal and professional ethics, and legal stances varying from state to state. For this Assignment, consider the topic of abortion, the laws of abortion that exist in the state or country in which you reside, and your own opinions on the topic. Also consider the relationship between your personal and professional ethical stance on the topic and how that may affect your interactions with clients. By Day 7 Submit a 2- to 4-page paper that explains what you discovered about the laws of abortion in your state or country and why this information might be shared with clients. Further, explain your personal stance on abortion and how your ethical entanglements might impact your work with clients given the professional social worker ethic. Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer. Competent social workers are able to construct a strong foundation upon which to build skills by understanding theories from a variety of disciplines. The disciplines of psychology, education, and sociology offer a number of development theories that can easily be applied to the practice of social work. For this Assignment, consider how a theory from another discipline may shed light on social work practice with children and adolescents. By Day 7 Submit a 2- to 4-page paper in which you choose a theory of development from another discipline (refer to Erikson, Piaget, Freud etc.). In your analysis, be sure to address how the theory does or does not relate to social work practice. Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer. Physical, emotional, and sexual abuse can have a devastating impact on a child and his or her family members. Social workers need to understand how to recognize and respond to cases of abuse expertly and efficiently. With an empathetic and helpful social worker, victims/survivors of abuse can take their first step onto the long road toward healing. For this Assignment, read the case study Working With Survivors of Sexual Abuse and Trauma: The Case of Brandon and then consider what you would do if you were a social worker and had to report a parent of suspected child abuse. By Day 7 Submit a 2- to 4-page paper in which you review the approach taken by the social worker in Brandon’s case. Identify how the social worker might have used the ecological model to understand Brandon’s situation based on a person-in-environment perspective. Explain the use of the ecological model in this case on micro, mezzo, and macro levels. Describe strengths the social worker may have missed in assessing Brandon and his mother. Review the challenges that the social worker identifies and explain the impact the abuse could have had on Brandon had his strengths not been identified and addressed. Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer. Cultures idealizing thinness, pressure from peers to fit in, and constant images of bodily perfection shown by mass media, along with additional physiological and psychological factors, can combine to create the perfect storm for adolescents struggling with eating disorders. For this Assignment, choose one peer-reviewed research study about eating disorders that focuses on a minority group of adolescents. Consider connections between physiological development, adolescence, and eating disorders. By Day 7 Submit a 2- to 4-page paper for which you articulate a position on eating disorders in adolescent girls from diverse racial and cultural experiences. Explain how the position is related to the biological and/or physiological development as well as psychological development of adolescent girls. Further, explain how such findings can inform evidence-based social work practice. Please use the Learning Resources and the research study you identified to support your answer. For some adolescents, experiencing physical pain becomes a regular practice for managing psychological pain. Whether used as a coping mechanism, a way to express anger, or to deal with intense emotional pain, self-harming is often a call for help. In school settings, faculty and staff are charged with protecting students, but how can they protect those students who choose to harm themselves? The importance of educators understanding the circumstances, causes, and effects of self-harming behavior so they can respond quickly and effectively cannot be overstated. For this Assignment, consider your role as a social worker and think about how you would raise awareness for educators to respond to this increasing maladaptive coping mechanism. By Day 7 Submit a 5- to 6-slide PowerPoint presentation explaining the indicators of self-harm, appropriate interventions, and follow-up steps for educators needing to respond to those who self-harm. SOCW6200 HUMAN BEHAVIOR AND THE SOCIAL ENVIRONMENT Full course – Assignments and DQs Week 8 Assignment: Connecting Knowledge and Research In order to provide the appropriate intervention, social workers first need to have conducted a thorough assessment. Having a comprehensive understanding of a client and their social environment, including the influence of racism and ethnocentrism, allows a social worker to accurately identify the presenting problems and help the client develop goals to address their needs. Not completing a full assessment may result in inaccurately identifying the presenting problem and pushing goals on the client to which they do not agree. A good assessment is the best foundation for treatment planning. In addition, evidence based practice requires social workers to use the best available evidence to inform their practice decisions. This assignment helps you prepare for the final project by beginning to identify the presenting problem and possible goals, as well as beginning the research process to inform your treatment recommendations when working with the identified client in a case study. To prepare: Conduct research in the library to locate at least 1 peer-reviewed scholarly resource(s) that could inform your assessment or intervention with the case you plan to use in your final project. By Day 7 Submit a 2-3 page paper in which you: · Identify the case you will be using for the final project · Describe the presenting problem(s) · Describe 2 goals for the client based on their presenting problem · Identify a specific peer-reviewed article and explain how it could inform understanding of the problem/population, development of goals, or intervention and treatment plan · Explain how ethnocentrism and racism may influence the case (make sure to draw from this week’s assigned readings) Project: Bio-Psycho-Social Assessment Assessing a client’s biological, psychological, and social history is a holistic approach that is an essential aspect of social work practice. Since one area often affects the other two, it is important to get as accurate an assessment as possible when working with a client. Social workers use the bio-psycho-social tool to communicate specific information, and possible conclusions, about a client to other professionals. It is, at once, a summary of current issues and problems; a listing of past factors that may be relevant to the current situation; and a description of potential issues that may have an effect on the client in the future. In addition to describing the client’s challenges and problems, the assessment identifies strengths and assets that are available to provide support. For this Project you create a bio-psycho-social assessment. By Day 7 Submit a 6- to 9-page paper that focuses on an adolescent from one of the case studies presented in this course. For this Project, complete a bio-psycho-social assessment and provide an analysis of the assessment. This Project is divided into two parts: Part A: Bio-Psycho-Social Assessment: The assessment should be written in professional language and include sections on each of the following: Presenting issue (including referral source) Demographic information Current living situation Birth and developmental history School and social relationships Family members and relationships Health and medical issues (including psychological and psychiatric functioning, substance abuse) Spiritual development Social, community, and recreational activities Client strengths, capacities, and resources Part B: Analysis of Assessment. Address each of the following: Explain the challenges faced by the client(s)—for example, drug addiction, lack of basic needs, victim of abuse, new school environment, etc. Analyze how the social environment affects the client. Identify which human behavior or social theories may guide your practice with this individual and explain how these theories inform your assessment. Explain how you would use this assessment to develop mutually agreed-upon goals to be met in order to address the presenting issue and challenges face by the client. Explain how you would use the identified strengths of the client(s) in a treatment plan. Explain how you would use evidence-based practice when working with this client and recommend specific intervention strategies (skills, knowledge, etc.) to address the presenting issue. Analyze the ethical issues present in the case. Explain how will you address them. Describe the issues will you need to address around cultural competence. Week 1 Discussion 1: 2 Minute Video: Environmental Influences An individual’s environment is composed of several distinct areas, each with its own explicit and implicit rules. Environments include, but are not limited to, family, school, work, community, religious groups, and friends. For children and adolescents, the environment can have a particularly strong impact upon behavior. Understanding the relationship between one’s environment and one’s behavior is essential to becoming an effective social worker. For this Discussion, consider the most influential elements of your social environment. Record and upload, by Day 3 , a 2-minute video that includes the following: · Your name · Your geographic location · An explanation of your current environment · An explanation of two elements in your current social environment that most influence you · A description of how the two most influential elements impact you Upload your video using the Mashup Tool in the classroom. For instructions on how to upload your video, refer to the Kaltura Media Uploader area on the course navigation menu By Day 3 Post your Video. To upload your media to this discussion thread, use the Kaltura Media option from the mashup tool drop-down menu. Refer to the Kaltura Media Uploader area in the course navigation menu for more information about how to upload media to the course. The types of issues and concerns that children, and adolescents, present to social workers are as varied as the people themselves. Understanding how individuals behave in their particular environment will shed some light on their current challenges, but this alone is not enough. Social workers must know how to ask the right questions, as the answers will inform decisions about which resources may be most helpful. For this Discussion, think about the connections between social work and human behavior and consider why it is relevant to social work practice. By Day 4 Post your Video. Post an explanation of why studying human behavior and the social environment (HBSE) is relevant for social workers. In your analysis, explain how HBSE is unique from other social and behavioral sciences. Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer. By Day 6 Respond to a colleague by providing a brief critique of his or her analysis or by expanding on the analysis with support from the Learning Resources. As a social worker, you will meet children and adolescents who are in complicated family situations and may require a variety of resources for support. There are many times when these situations involve drug abuse, domestic violence, child abuse, and/or neglect. If these factors are present within a child’s or adolescent’s environment, it will impact their development. As mandated reporters, social workers are legally required to report any suspicion they have of child abuse or neglect to local authorities in an effort to ensure a healthier environment within which they can grow. For this Discussion, review the case study “Working With Clients With Addictions: The Case of Barbara and Jonah.” Consider this week’s reading in the Learning Resources. By Day 3 Post an explanation of influences of Barbara’s addiction on Jonah’s future development. Describe an intervention that you would use for Jonah if you were the social worker in this case. Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer. By Day 5 Respond to a colleague’s post by offering an additional theoretical approach he or she could use in working with Barbara and Jonah. Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer. For this Discussion, watch this week’s Sessions episode on the Hernandez Family. By Day 3 Post a n explanation of the potential value of Juan and Elena’s participation in the parenting class. If a child is exposed to behavior standards that do not account for his or her developmental stage, how might this impact the child’s development? Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer. By Day 5 Respond to a colleague’s post by describing an intervention that might be used to address the impact to development described. Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer. Learning about psychological, biological, and social development across the lifespan is essential to competent, ethical practice. To prepare for the final project, in which you write up and analyze a biopsychosocial assessment, begin thinking about how you will apply concepts of human behavior and the social environment that you are learning in this course. This assignment supports that process by asking you to engage in self-reflection and consider how the material you have engaged with in the past 4 weeks applies to you. Using the Kultura Media tool, you will video record your response to the assignment questions. By Day 3 Record a 4-5 minute video in which you discuss: · Identify an event that occurred in your childhood that influenced who you are today. o Please consider guidelines related to self-disclosure and do not discuss an event that is potentially still triggering or share intimate details. · Identify the developmental stage you were at when the event occurred and describe the important psychological, biological, and social factors that typically occur during this stage. · Explain how the social environment impacted your experience. Explain your strengths during that time and whether these strengths have changed as you have developed. By Day 6 Respond to at least one colleague’s post comparing/contrasting your social environment during the developmental stage identified in your colleague’s post. Explain how your social environment influenced your experiences during the same developmental stage. Argumentative behavior, engagement in physical altercations, and evidence of mood swings can all indicate that an adolescent is experiencing anger and depression. Self-harming can surface in adolescents, too, as they experience difficult emotions. For this Discussion, read the case study of Dalia and consider what you, as her social worker, would do if you observed self-harm indicators. By Day 3 Post a brief explanation of self-harming behaviors that Dalia is exhibiting. Describe theoretical approaches and practical skills you would employ in working with Dalia. How might familial relationships result in Dalia’s self-harming behavior? Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer. By Day 5 Respond to a colleague’s post by explaining why you agree or disagree with your colleague’s use of a particular theoretical approach and/or practical skill in working with Dalia. Bullying is not a new phenomenon, but social media and communication technologies have introduced a breadth and depth to which public shaming, targeted taunting, and bullying have manifested. For this Discussion, consider how bullying has changed and how it has remained the same in light of modern technology. By Day 3 Post an explanation of one moral development theory and its connection to the act of bullying. Be sure to frame your explanation within the context of cyber and other bullying that persists in social media and communication technologies used by adolescents. Also explain how bullying has changed and how it has remained the same in light of modern technology. Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer. By Day 5 Respond to a colleague’s post by offering an additional development theory and explaining its connection to the act of bullying. Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer. Bearing witness to trauma has its own set of consequences. Watching repeated episodes of bullying can evoke strong emotional and behavioral responses from an adolescent. During the impressionable stage of social development in adolescents, these experiences can contribute to a change in perception about the ways people should and do treat each other. Furthermore, ongoing exposure to this behavior can jeopardize an adolescent’s healthy social development. For this Discussion, consider how the act of bullying experienced by one adolescent may change the experience of another who witnesses it. By Day 5 Post a scenario that illustrates how bullying experienced by one adolescent may change the experience of another who witnesses it. Then address the availability of any social work intervention, skill, or practice that might change this cycle of events. Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer. By Day 7 Respond to a colleague’s post by expanding on how the act of bullying can affect the psychological development of both victim and observer. Then offer an additional social work intervention, skill, or practice that might change this cycle of events. Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer. SOCW6200 HUMAN BEHAVIOR AND THE SOCIAL ENVIRONMENT Full course – Assignments and DQs Week 8 Discussion: Application of HBSE to Engagement, Assessment and Intervention Social workers are expected to apply knowledge of human behavior and the social environment, person?in environment, and other multi-disciplinary theoretical frameworks during stages of engagement, assessment, intervention, and evaluation when practicing in the field. This discussion is intended to help you demonstrate and develop your critical thought related to these practice behaviors. If you have not already done so, begin working on your final project. The final project asks you to choose a case study on an adolescent from this course (e.g., Dalia, Eboni Logan, or Diane). Decide which case study you plan to use and begin working on Part A of the final project. For this discussion, you use the Kultura Media tool to video record your response to the assignment questions. Your instructor will provide feedback to help guide your process. To prepare: Review the instructions for the final project. By Day 3 Record a 4-5 minute video in which you: · Explain how you might apply knowledge of human behavior and the social environment when engaging with the identified client in the case. · Explain how you might apply knowledge of human behavior and the social environment when assessing the identified client in the case. · Explain how you might apply knowledge of human behavior and the social environment when intervening with the identified client in the case. · Discuss any areas where you feel challenged or need additional support for your final project. By Day 6 Respond to at least one colleague and discuss ideas your colleague presented that you had not considered and how you will apply what you learned during this discussion to the final project. Discussion 1 – Week 9 Discussion 1: Myths of Sexual Violence Myths and misinformation surround the topic of sexual violence. For years, these myths have hung around the discourse, further muddying an already difficult topic about which to communicate. Although all myths can be harmful, there are some that may be arguably more harmful. For this Discussion, you identify some of the myths surrounding the topic of sexual abuse and consider why they have remained so prevalent. Post by Day 3 an explanation of which myths of sexual violence you think are the most harmful and why. Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer. Respond by Day 5 to a colleague’s post by offering a reason as to why his or her identified myths are so prevalent and persistent. Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer.

REPLY QUOTE Discussion 2 – Week 9 Discussion 2: Bystander Intervention Separating fact from fiction is imperative when learning how to recognize and respond appropriately, and effectively, to victim/survivors, and bystanders/witnesses, of sexual violence. Although a large majority of sexual assaults do not happen in public settings, in some cases, they do. This is when it is important to understand the experience of the bystander. Bystander intervention can help to explain how, when, and where these kinds of assaults take place; at times, it may even prevent the assault from happening. For this week’s Discussion, watch the video case study of Talia. Locate research on bystander intervention by Victoria L. Banyard and/or Sarah McMahon. Post by Day 5 your application of the theory of bystander intervention to the behavior of those exhibited in the video. Then, describe a scenario in which a bystander could have influenced this scenario in a different way. Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer Respond by Day 7 to a colleague’s post by explaining possible psychological effects one may experience as a result of being a bystander to an occurring or potential act of sexual violence.

SOCW6200 HUMAN BEHAVIOR AND THE SOCIAL ENVIRONMENT Full course – Assignments and DQs Discussion – Week 10 Discussion: Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, and Gender Expression Think about the moment in which you became aware of your sexual orientation. Do you recall making a conscious choice to be gay or straight? Some believe that gender identity and sexual expression is a choice, or more likely, that “people choose to be gay.” The counter to that belief is that one does not “choose” his or her sexual orientation; it simply is. This week you consider how people’s reactions to someone’s gender identity or sexual orientation impacts his or her environment and experience. When adolescents question their sexual orientation or gender identity, they encounter various reactions from individuals in their environment. For this Discussion, consider how people’s reactions to someone’s gender identity or sexual orientation may impact his or her environment and experience. Post by Day 3 your answer to the following question: How might potential reactions to an adolescent’s questioning of their sexual identity, or gender role, impact their social environment, behavior and self-esteem? As social workers, what role can we play in assuring the best outcomes for these adolescents? Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer. Respond by Day 5 to a colleague’s post by offering additional insight about how social workers can work toward assuring the best outcomes for adolescents questioning their sexual orientation or gender identity. Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer. SOCW6200 HUMAN BEHAVIOR AND THE SOCIAL ENVIRONMENT Full course – Assignments and DQs Discussion – Week 11 Discussion Question: Indicators of Suicide Increased stress levels, feeling hopeless and alone, being bullied, or experiencing repeated physical or sexual abuse could all be reasons why some adolescents consider suicide. Adolescent suicide has far-reaching consequences on families, friends, communities, and schools. For this Discussion, use the Parker Family case study to consider the indicators of suicide. Also think about how you might react to students in this situation if you were a social worker in a school. Post by Day 3 your answer to the following: After learning about the character in the Parker Family case study, imagine that you were the school social worker. Which indicators would you have looked for and why. How would you have responded to each of those indicators? What kinds of questions would you have asked and why? Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer. Respond by Day 5. Choose a colleague’s post and widen the discussion by offering two additional responses to noted indicators. Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer. Click on the Reply button below to reveal the textbox for entering your message.
