Relate Erikson’s stage theory to major childhood developmental milestones.
To better understand the progression of the development of self, interview two different people about their memories of friendships. Find two children, two adults, or one child and one adult (depending on availability) and ask them questions about their friendships and how their social relationships affected their development of self.
(See interview attached and the rubric to follow) Include references from: Berns, R. (2017). Child, Family, School, Community: Socialization and support.
Other peer-reviewed article.
Summarize your findings, integrating relevant theories and concepts up to this point in the class in a 2–3-page (approximately 1,000 words) paper (not including the title and reference pages).
Include in your paper: A summary of each interview The development of self of each person interviewed A comparison of the two interviewees’ development of self Possible ways their development of self could have been more positively influenced in childhood
In the first few units of this course, you studied how children develop their sense of self as a function of learning from their families, their peers, and their experiences about themselves. To better understand this progression of the development of self, you are going to interview two different people about their memories of friendships. Find two children, two adults, or one child and one adult (depending on availability) and ask them the questions about their friendships and how their social relationships informed their development of self. When you have completed this activity, you will write a 1,000-word paper to describe your findings/theories/concepts related to social development and the development of self. Specifically, your paper should demonstrate your ability to analyze themes from your interviews. Include in your paper a summary of each interview, the development of self of each person interviewed, a comparison of the two interviewees’ development of self, and possible ways their development of self could have been more positively influenced in childhood.
Identify and explain themes and features, such as perpetrator, family, or victim characteristics, that seem to be common to all three types of family violence: sibling abuse, caregiver abuse, and parricide. Identify and explain themes and features that differ among these types of family violence. Consider the roles and responsibilities of forensic psychology professionals. Pick the type of family violence among the three that interests you the most and that would be professionally relevant. Identify features of this type of violence with limited or no information. Explain why you think a forensic psychology professional would need more information about these features. For example: In parricide, little is known about the victims of parricide. Information about the victims’ characteristics, as well as their relationships with the perpetrator and other family members, could assist case workers in identifying families at risk of parricide [further explain why . . . ]. Describe how you would conduct a scholarly literature review to gather more information about the features that you have identified.
Bloom’s taxonomy. Facione’s core critical thinking skills. Paul and Elder’s elements of thought.
Compare and contrast these models. What do you see as their strengths and weaknesses? What do they share in common? What does synthesize mean within the context of Bloom’s taxonomy and Granello’s 2001 article, “Promoting Cognitive Complexity in Graduate Written Work”? How could you imagine using each model as a practitioner-scholar working in your specialization? Give an example of how you would use each model to evaluate some content in one of the articles you located for your research project.
Compare and contrast new social media marketing trends with more traditional forms of advertising.
We have been looking at successful ad campaigns using social media. Let’s apply this directly and see how this compares with older methods of advertising.
Choose a recent social media campaign, possibly one you interacted with. Below are some possible examples: ALS #IceBucketChallenge Always #LikeAGirl Coca-Cola #ShareaCoke IKEA bookbook video McDonald’s Super Bowl 2015 Taco Bell #OnlyInTheApp Virgin America Boo videos
Then consider an older commercial, before social media was (as big) an influence. You can look at famous ads on Youtube.
In a minimum of 3 pages, please do the following: Provide an introduction with a summary of the ads you have chosen, and an explanation of what the stated intent behind the ad is. From there, look at what the ad actually says (like a beer ad might actually be demonstrating that women are sex objects). Describe how social media plays into the intent and the actual message. What’s different between the two you chose? What made the ads successful (or not successful)? What ideas and opinions do you have about the product or brand after reviewing the ads? What can we learn about how businesses use Twitter, Facebook, Linked In, etc. to communicate, network, broaden their customer base, and promote their products/services? Summarize your analysis.

Vision and Goals
By the time you complete this final assignment, you will have gained a lot more knowledge and insights about your interests in psychology and your career trajectory. To begin this assignment, take some time to reflect on all you have learned about the field and ways you can contribute to psychology.
What aspects of your research affected your vision or goals? Given this, what topics do you think you would be interested in researching in the future?
How was your vision affected by the career information in your readings from your Career Paths in Psychology text and your exploration of the Career Center and other resources?
Revise and refine the vision statement and long-term goals that you developed earlier in response to the feedback you have received and your studies in this course. Update your Articulating Your Purpose activity to help support these revisions.
Professional Competencies and Requirements
Understanding the competencies and responsibilities involved with your future career in psychology is essential for preparing yourself to become a practitioner-scholar in your field. It is also necessary to understand any requirements needed for your specialized practice and scholarship.
For this step in the assignment, analyze the competencies, responsibilities, ethical considerations, and other requirements needed for achieving your vision and goals as a professional in psychology. These may include:
Capella program and specialization requirements.
Skills, abilities, and attitudes critical to success in the field of psychology, such as those related to critical thinking, decision making, problem solving, evidence-based practices, ethical integrity, cultural competence, and conflict resolution.
Make note of skills, abilities, and attitudes related to the practitioner-scholar model and the experience you had in researching scholarly sources in your last assignment.
Credentialing, certification, licensure, and accreditation practices and standards.
Ethical codes, principles, laws, and policies applicable to your chosen career path.
Reflect on your current competencies, previous experiences, and achievements that help you meet those requirements. Since you are at the beginning of your journey to a future career, you will have gaps in required knowledge, skills, attitudes, and credentials. Identify any areas in which you need further development to achieve your goals and vision as a psychology practitioner-scholar.
With all this knowledge of your vision and goals, and the competencies and requirements for the field in hand, you are ready to plot your course to making these aspirations a reality. The final step in this assignment is to create a revised action plan to achieve your goals. This means translating the requirements for your profession and the development areas you identified into specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and timed (SMART) steps to achieve your vision.
Include these elements in your action plan:
Completion of your Capella program.
Possible opportunities for additional training or volunteer work to address gaps in your knowledge or skills.
Possible opportunities in your current position to develop additional skills through coaching or stretch assignments.
Capella Community groups and professional organizations that you could join for networking with others and completing additional informational interviews.
How you will stay current with the research and literature in the field..
How you can apply what you have learned in this course about researching psychological literature and evaluating it in terms of reliability, credibility, ethics, and value.
How you will apply critical thinking and effective decision making as a psychologist.
How you will use Capella’s support resources to develop the skills required to successfully develop your writing and other competencies essential to the profession and your role as a graduate learner.
At this point, there may be an overwhelming number of steps that you could complete to work toward your vision. If it helps you work through this plan, focus on major milestones and requirements as well as steps you can take during your Capella degree program to help translate your vision into SMART short-term goals and tasks.
If you feel the need for more input, review the SMART Goals presentation and Career Center resources or search the Capella library or the Internet for additional reflective exercises and inspiring ideas about transforming your vision into an action plan.

As stated in the project description, research is at the core of psychology practice whether you conduct it yourself or apply evidence-based strategies and techniques in your professional practice. After developing your vision “My Personal Vision Statement—“My career as a Cognitive Behavior Counselor began in 2003 when I was promoted with the Michigan Department of Corrections. After an extensive training for the Thinking for a Change evidence-based program and Substance Abuse Counselor for adult male offenders I realized I found my calling. I re-enrolled in college where I finished my Associates Degree in Criminal Justice and from there a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. I took a job for a private provider where I was able to counsel foster children in state custody and after doing that for a couple years I found I wasn’t happy with this career move and that’s when I found my current job as a counselor for Young Adult male offenders with the Tennessee Department of Corrections. My personal vision is to use myself, life experiences, and knowledge to impact positive attitudes with those who may cross my path in life. I wish to inspire and motivate them to discover and develop their true potential and live their lives to the fullest. In order for this vision to be fulfilled, I need to finish m Master’s Degree and gain advance evidence-based training experience so I can become more experienced with my facilitation in this area.
Creating meaningful goals you created a research question related to your goals and searched the literature for answers—My Research Question “I gathered a couple of insights about depression in my research. One is that some personalities are prone to depression more than others especially the introverts, perfectionists. Depression affects memory especially the part of the memory that deals with tasks like names and places. Depression is also linked to some diseases like heart disease, leads to faster aging and diabetes among others (Elliott, Huizinga & Menard, 2012). The research will play a very important role in my future career because it will help me keep up to date with current information about depression and other illnesses. I will be able to know the best and most modern treatments for various conditions and their public health interventions. The research will help me broaden my knowledge and skills as a Youth Offender Counselor.” You practiced using critical thinking frameworks to evaluate the relevance and quality of research and you integrated the literature to prepare for a cohesive review.
This assignment provides an opportunity to receive feedback to help you further refine your research interests, reflect on the role of scholarship in your career vision, and practice evaluating and synthesizing evidence to apply in your profession.
Your writing in this assignment should not just be a collection of notes, lists, or questions and answers. Instead, it should be a well-organized discussion that flows logically from one idea to the next.
Complete the following in your assignment template:
State your research question and explain why it is important.
Evaluation of Sources
Synthesis of Literature Into a Cohesive Review
You should have identified at least three key themes, or focuses of inquiry, that are relevant to your research question and present in each article. These themes may be based on: Related aspects of research questions. Related or differing conclusions. Other factors or ideas the studies have in common. Other points of contrast between the studies.
Use concise formulations of these themes as headings for the next sections of the paper. In these sections, compare and contrast your resources’ positions relative to each theme, and then synthesize your own position relative to the theme. Support your conclusions by citing your references. However, if you find that more research would be needed to decide a question, briefly outline ideas of how that could be undertaken. Discuss how you would apply these findings to your future professional practice in psychology. Analyze how these findings could help you accomplish the functions, responsibilities, and ethics required of a psychology professional. You are encouraged to cite information from your interview with a psychology professional here; however, remember to critically evaluate the information you use. What techniques, strategies, and best practices are indicated by your research? What enhanced outcomes can be expected when they are applied?
The final step in this assignment is to describe how your research fits into your future vision and goals for your career. Craft additional professional goals related to this research. Revise the vision statement you completed in Unit 3 to integrate research and scholarship in your specialized field of psychology.
Your assignment should also meet the following requirements: Template: Use the Your Research in Psychology Template to format your assignment.

Psychological Research and Public Policy/Law
Psychological research is and has been applied to many areas of daily life. From television commercials to a first grade classroom, you can see the effects of research in action. When psychological research is used to influence and shape public policy, in general, and specific laws, trained forensic psychologists and forensic psychology professionals typically are behind the scenes. Individuals who understand psychological research and the legal/political/legislative process are excellent candidates to help meld these two seemingly dissimilar areas.
To prepare for this Discussion: Review the article, “Washington’s Sexually Violent Predator Law:Legislative History and Comparisons With Other States.” Think about how historical and forensic psychological research contributes to the establishment of law and policy. Review the article, “Stalking: Lessons From Recent Research.” Pay particular attention to how research is used to influence community action and thereby affect public policy. Review the article, “Sexually Violent Predator Evaluations: Empirical Evidence, Strategies for Professionals, and Research Directions.” Consider how the findings described in this article might be helpful in influencing or setting public policy. Using the Walden Library, identify and review a psychological research study that you believe has influenced a change in public policy or law. Reflect upon the population studied, the key data and results, and other important takeaways of the research study. Think about how this research study might influence public policy and/or law in forensics or in forensic settings.
With these thoughts in mind:
Post by Day 4 a brief summary of the research study you selected. Be sure to include the population studied, key data and results, and other important takeaways of the article. Then, explain how a forensic psychology professional might use the results of the study to influence public policy and/or law in forensics or in forensic settings.
