Cultural Autobiography ALL WORK MUST BE ALL ORIGINAL AND 3 REFERENCES 4 PAGES NOT COUNTING TITLE PAGE
The purpose of this assignment is to illustrate recognition of your own cultural background and how your worldview has been shaped by your family, role models and life experiences. This autobiography will help you express an appreciation for your own cultural identity and discover potential areas of development.
Begin by defining individuals that you consider family members. This includes, for example, parents or guardians, siblings and/or grandparents. Important information about these individuals includes places of birth, travel (if any), age, spiritual/religious beliefs, occupation, educational history, ethnicity, birth order, etc. In this description include the cultural heritage each individual and summarize the belief system of your family in general, including specific family values, religious and cultural practices, ceremonies, beliefs, and holiday celebrations. If possible, interview these individuals in an effort to gain new insight into your cultural heritage.
Next critically evaluate experiences in which you feel have had significant relevance in your multicultural development. Include both positive and negative experiences if applicable.
After taking a look at these influencing factors, critically examine and discuss who you are as a cultural being, including your racial identity. Think about your own development, functioning, values, behaviors and worldview and how you feel your family history, chosen role models, and experiences have shaped you. Describe how your life would be different had these cultural influences not been there. Be sure to include a description of interpersonal expectations for yourself and lifestyle choices. Finally, having taken a close look at your cultural autobiography, include potential biases which may influence how you interact with others. This could include, for example, favoring individuals of your own heritage or unconscious biases towards a certain cultural group.
Be sure to address each topic listed above and, as appropriate, cite the online course, the textbook, and other credible sources to substantiate the points you are making. For example, when discussing your racial identity please cite sources which you have referenced to better understand what this term means or use the text or lecture to substantiate points you are making about how gender has influenced your cultural development.
This paper should be approximately 4-6 pages and is due on Wednesday, January 27, 2016.

Prior to completing this discussion, please read Module 6 in the textbook and review any relevant Instructor Guidance. Specifically, you can review the interactive media tool illustrating obesity causes and prevention from an ecological perspective in Module 6.
In this discussion, you will utilize this template to create a brochure (or create your own) which addresses the issue of childhood obesity in order to share your continued learning in child development with others.
You will need to be sure to incorporate all of the information in a succinct and straightforward manner while remaining encouraging and positive as you share your expertise with others. Incorporate 3-5 visually appealing images, statistics, or graphs/charts into your brochure to capture the attention of your intended audience.
Your brochure must include the following:Analyze how at least 1 of the major themes of development (Health and Well-Being, Family and Parenting, Education, Culture, or Gender) influences the developmental physical, cognitive and psychosocial outcomes related to childhood obesity.Address the role of parents and schools in creating this problem. Also, include any other people/entities whom you feel deserve a portion of the blame and why.Utilize problem-solving techniques in exploring developmental issues, grounded in child development, in order to explain two practical ways in which we can incorporate change to improve the health of children and families. It is important to be able to explain the role of society and community agencies in assisting families in developing the optimum learning and pro-social behavior of children.Be cognizant of the issues faced by single-parents, working parents, parents who are overweight/obese themselves, and those with other physical restrictions.Provide two resources (one local and one web-based) for those seeking information on health and wellness.
Along with the attachment to your brochure, your discussion post should include references in APA format as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center for any information and resources included in the brochure.
Prior to completing this discussion, please read Module 13 in the textbook, including the interactive media tools on theories of attachment, and review any relevant Instructor Guidance.
Demonstrate your knowledge of child development by analyzing the relationship between attachment style, as outlined by Mary Ainsworth, and any one of the other topics covered in the discussions or journals in this course. Consider ways in which that topic may influence the development of attachment in childhood or adolescence. Additionally, address how one’s attachment style may impact their behavior or choices related to that topic. Finally, explain how exploring the interaction between unique features of development (such as attachment and health, or attachment and bullying) can help us in our continued learning of human development across the lifespan.

Addiction to illegal substances and alcohol is a coping mechanism that many children use to deal with the intense and painful reality of child abuse/neglect. The cycles of addiction can be generational and very difficult to overcome.
Create and describe an addiction scenario involving a minor and offer suggestions for which services you believe would be the most effective in that scenario. Provide details for the scenario such as age of client, signs of abuse, and the type of abuse. Be sure to address the following questions:
What are some of the signs and symptoms for the client in your scenario?To what substances is the client addicted?What services are generally offered to help children break addiction and how do those services differ from services offered to adult addicts?
