Whether you are a case manager in a rural clinic, a prison, or a regional hospital’s treatment center, effective programs adhere to certain principles and guidelines. Within those settings, effective case managers follow practices that meet the competing demands of the job. These include clients’ needs, requirements of the treatment team, and procedures for ensuring the program’s efficient and effective operations. These practices can be grouped together to form the best practices for case management in addictions.

 

For this Assignment, you will evaluate criteria for best practices for case management for addictions.

 

To prepare for this Assignment, review learning resources and activities for case management addiction evaluations. Identify principles that are considered best practices for case management for addictions.

Share what observations children will make. Explain what they will be able to measure from this experiment.

Assignment 3: Communication: Culture and Context

In this assignment, you will consider the effect of culture and context on communication. There are many definitions of culture, but most include a reference to shared patterns of behaviors and interactions, cognitive constructs, and effective understanding that are learned through a process of socialization. These shared patterns identify the members of a cultural group while also distinguishing those of another group. Culture is about symbols and language, and these elements are central to communication. The idea of something being “lost in translation” is readily apparent to most people who have studied another language and translated a passage into their own primary language. The rate of speech and importance of nonverbal aspects of communication are just a few ways culture can impact the message sent. The importance of context always varies by culture—for example, in some cultures, what is said is much more important than how it is said while in other cultures the “how” may carry much greater importance.

Tasks:

Using your textbook, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, complete the following:Analyze a recent conversation you had with a person of a different culture. Or, if you haven’t had this type of conversation recently, find a video clip online that focuses on people from different cultures communicating and analyze the clip.Provide a brief synopsis of the conversation—what was the general content and context?Describe how you greeted this person. Did you greet this person with a kiss, a handshake, or some other cultural mannerism? Was there additional touching or no touching at all?Describe your physical proximity. How far were you standing from each other? What if any body language was evident? Did you maintain eye contact?Describe the physical characteristics that might be evident. What were you wearing? Were you dressed in casuals or in business attire? Describe what the other person was wearing. How might the apparel make a difference in the conversation?Describe the protocol for the conversation. Did you take turns talking, or did you both talk at the same time? How did you refer to each other? Do you feel like you had equal time to express yourself? Why or why not?Did the physical setting impact what was discussed? What did you talk about? How was the conversation brought to a close? What happened at the end?How might your own cultural affiliation have impacted this conversation? Do an analysis using support from scholarly sources.

Submission Details:By Wednesday, January 13, 2016 , prepare a 3- to 4-page paper. Your response should rely upon at least two sources from professional literature.

  Assignment Scenario 4

   Jordan     

  

 Background

 

 

 

Jordan is a 29-year-old African American male who was on the front lines in Afghanistan for two tours of duty in the Marines. He receives medical services at a Veterans Administration hospital. He has 14 years of education and has been married for 6 years with two young children. Jordan suffered an injury to his lower back after jumping from a high wall during his second tour of duty. An MRI has revealed several bulging and herniated lumbar discs.

 

 

 Problem

 

 

 

Jordan has persistent pain throughout the day, which varies from bad to horrible. He claims that he is always in pain since his injury occurred. At this time, surgery is not recommended, but the current approach by his medical team includes large doses of an opioid pain medication and physical therapy. He believes he has become dependent on the medication and, when he does not take it, his pain is “totally out of control.”

 

 

 Behavioral Health Information

 

 

 

Jordan is 6’5” tall and slightly overweight. Appetite is normal. Sleep is very disturbed by constant awakening due to his pain. He was referred to a sleep disorders center at the VA, and results of a sleep study indicate that he is only averaging 4 hours of sleep per night. Sexual interest has diminished due to pain and the effects of his medication. He tries to walk around his block several times per week, but can only walk short distances before pain sets in. He has a favorite recliner where he spends much of his day, reading or watching TV. He does not smoke or drink alcohol. Caffeine use is moderate. His social network is reduced. and he misses some of his buddies from the military, who do not come to visit him often. His marriage is strong, but because his wife must work full-time for financial reasons, he stays home and cares for their children. His level of depression is moderate to severe, and he feels like “less of a man” because he cannot work and contribute. He is very isolated, and his mood is depressed and pessimistic about the future. He has not been seen by a mental health professional.

 

You are a volunteer research associate at a local Veteran’s Administration hospital.

 

 

 

Read the University of Phoenix Material: Week Four Assignment Scenario to learn about Jordan. 

 

 

 

Write a 1,200  +word paper discussing the following:

 

 

 

Atleast three methods used to assess pain, including cognitive, behavioral, and self-report methods

 

The psychosocial components of Jordan’s pain problems

 

The evidence-based physiological, behavioral, and cognitive intervention methods you would recommend to improve functioning and reduce pain

 

 

 

Include a minimum of four scholarly references.

Correlations: Ice Cream and Personality ( I have attached chapter 2) The answers should be at least two paragraphs in length each and with reference to the chapter.

 

 The textbook (see “Psychological Science” chapter 2) explains briefly what a correlation is, how surveys contribute to research, and some of the dangers to watch out for. 

 

First look in the chapter on Psychological Science (chapter 2, section 2.2), and review the section on Correlational Research: Seeking Relationships Among Variables (or page 29 in this chapter).  This will give you more information about the nature of correlations and why we have to be careful with them.

 

Then,  take a look at the following URLs:

http://www.shadowspace.com/psi/icecream.html

http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/humanbody/mind/articles/personalityandindividuality/flavourandpersonality.shtml

 

Next, answer the following questions:

1)  First, tell us what a correlation is (you may define this according to your textbook, but be sure to put this information in quotes and cite the chapter and page number. )

2)  Tell us a little about Dr. Hirsch’s research.  What did he do?  What did he find?  Why might Dr. Hirsch’s research be important?

3) Based on what you know about correlations, what problems do you see with Dr. Hirsch’s research? 

4) Do the websites provide a basis for asserting that your personality determines your ice cream preference?

 

Note that the articles identify Dr. Hirsch as a psychiatrist and a neurologist, not a psychologist.
