 A close examination of the Article II of the Constitution (Executive Branch) suggests that the founding fathers, leery of tyrannical monarchs, deliberately made vague the powers and responsibility of the president. Yet the institution of the presidency has grown, over time. This expansion of presidential power and the growth of the federal bureaucracies, through executive interpretation ofArticle II of the Constitution, is a dominant feature of the modern presidency.


Directions: Using the accredited sources listed below please provide two, specific, historical examples that demonstrate the ‘growth’ in presidential power during the 20th and 21st centuries.

A minimum of 350 words required with references. Please answer all questions.Part 1: Based upon a functional assessment, you have chosen to use habit reversal procedures to decrease the thumb sucking behavior of a 7-year-old child. Explain how you would implement all four components of habit reversal with this child, including a specific competing response. Provide a description of why habit reversal procedures work to reduce habit behaviors (include the applicable behavioral principles).

Part 2: Explain how you would implement one of the differential reinforcement procedures (e,g., DRA, DRI, DRO, or DRL) with this case. Include an explanation of how the behavioral principles of reinforcement and extinction are involved in differential reinforcement procedures.


The purpose of this assignment is to provide you with the opportunity to select a topic in the particular area in which you have an occupational or research interest, and to complete a literature review of the topic, using a minimum of ten scholarly references. This will allow you to demonstrate mastery of the program outcomes for the B.A. psychology program at Argosy University. A helpful Web site for organizing and writing a literature review is .


You may also want to review the following documents that are available in the Doc Sharing area of the course:

 A sample literature review, a PowerPoint document illustrating how to set up your word processor for APA style a “Guide for Writing a Literature Review”


Based on your review of the most recent, relevant research findings on your chosen topic, submit a final version of your literature review paper, integrating feedback received from your instructor. Be sure to include a research/focal question, synthesis of the literature you reviewed, well-established conclusions, and points of discussion and/or future research. 

 Begin the review by defining the objective of the paper. Introduce the reader to your focal question. What is this question intended to address? You may state your “question” in the form of a problem if you like. Describe the topic for your literature review and why you chose this topic. Explain why you think it is important. It is also useful to tell the reader how the review is organized in your introduction section, before you the transition into the body of the review. 

 Organize your literature review paper by themes/theories/concepts, rather than article by article. If there is one major theme you want to highlight, state the theme. If there are three major themes or streams of thought on the topic, briefly name them—and then organize the balance of your literature review around those three streams. Think of themes, theories, concepts, lines of thought, and ideas as organizing strategies for your literature review. Your creativity in this assignment is not the content or findings but the clarity with which you organize the review and create a context for understanding the focal question.

 When you are done introducing the first line of thought, create a new paragraph to discuss studies which present another line of thought or opposing view.

 Your literature review should hit the high points of each article. You should not discuss a single article, one by one, like a grocery list. Zero in on the main theme or finding and then move on to the next theme. Remember, this is a synthesis, an integration of all the things you have learned. You are creating a discussion on paper, which in turn gives the reader a context for understanding where the scholarship has been, where it is currently, and where it likely will be heading next. Provide enough details to help the reader understand the significance of the studies you cite without “rebuilding Rome.” Be sure to evaluate the studies and offer critical comments on any shortcomings you’ve observed or that have been reported by the authors.

 Discuss the main findings and their implications. Given the results of your literature review, what is/are the prevailing argument(s)? What research question could you ask in order to further develop this area of study and contribute to the existing body of knowledge? Complete your review by drawing conclusions about your body of research and identifying gaps in the research which still remain to be explored, maybe even by you! Make an argument as to why your research question is important and relevant to the current work being done on your topic.




Apply current APA standards for editorial style, expression of ideas, and formatting of the text, headings, citations, and references. Remember to use your own words to describe and evaluate the articles. Avoid quoting the material and also cite works when you are discussing someone else’s ideas. Your paper should be double-spaced and in 12 point, Times New Roman font with normal one-inch margins, written in APA style, and free of typographical and grammatical errors. It should include a title page with a running head, an abstract and a reference page. The body of the paper should be no less than 5–6 pages in length.

Tom Regan (1985) and Peter Singer (1989) agree that we have moral responsibilities toward animals, but disagree about the best approach to animal ethics.

What basic conclusions do they agree about (be specific)?

How would you explain the basic difference in their approach? Specifically, explain how Singer’s argument represents a utilitarian view, referring to John Stuart Mill’s Utilitarianism for the basic framework of a utilitarian theory of morality. In what way is Regan’s view a non-utilitarian one? Name at least one argument he makes that is non-utilitarian, and compare it with an argument from Singer that is utilitarian.  (Note: the aim in this discussion is to unpack the utilitarian approach to ethics, not simply to discuss our responsibilities toward animals.)  

Finally, share your responses to either or both of the arguments and any of the other material on animal ethics from this week.  



Explain how mental health and addiction therapy are viewed in various cultures. Give at least two examples.

Instructions for each journal:

At the top left, please write your name, which course you are taking, the date, and the journal number.


Center the title of your journal, which should include your topic.


Select one of the topics below and research that topic further on the Internet or in the library. Your textbook does not count as one of your two sources. Find two websites or articles where you can learn more about the topic.   List the two websites underneath your title, in the center of the page. Include the webpage  address or MLA citation of the library source.  Your web address should be specific enough so that I can check the webpage  for plagiarism—do  not just write “Web MD”;  instead, make your citation specific enough that a reader can check your source.

Any time you quote from a source, you need quotation marks, in-text citation, and Works Cited or Reference citation.  You must use quotation marks when you quote directly.  If you do not, then you have plagiarized, and the work will receive a zero.

Your emphasis in the journals should be to write a reflective journal.  Tie in the material with what you already know, with your experiences, and talk about what interests you or confuses you about the topic.  Do not make your journal a collection of quotations or paraphrases of the research material! You may wish to suggest how this topic could be researched further, and how a topic applies to what you are learning in this course or in other courses, such as nursing courses or other psychology courses.  You do not have to explain the topic completely–you do have to research it and reflect what you have learned and what questions your research has raised in your mind.  These journals are meant to be learning journals, not finished papers.  It is fine to use first and second person in your journals (I and you.)


You cannot use,, or wikipedia . You can use the library online  databases, and you can use online  sources such as mental health, medical, and university websites. You can also use magazines like  Psychology Today ,  Time ,  Newsweek , and parenting magazines. List your two websites or article citations at the top of your journal page.


Write at least 500-700 words, double spaced, about what you learned about the topic that was interesting to you.


Your journal will be graded for critical thinking (30 pts  possible) and quality of websites chosen (20 pts  possible).  The maximum credit for a journal is 50 pts .


Here are your topics for this journal:



Anorexia nervosa

Laurence Kohlberg
