Topic: Ethical Issues When Counseling Different Ethnic Populations

 

Before beginning your thread, read, analyze, and critique the code of ethics found in the Reading & Study folder. Then, follow these instructions:

 

Listed below is a situation that may or may not violate codes of ethics when working with families. Study the scenario carefully and then go to the codes of ethics for AAMFT, IAMFC, AACC, and ACA to find the ethical answers to the dilemmas presented. Be sure to record the code location on each ethical code where the violation or permission is given for the counselor to do what had been done (ex: AAMFT 2.2 or ACA B.7.2).

 

You have been counseling a family of Korean origin for the past 5 weeks. Specific family members have been suffering from generalized anxiety disorder, which is connected to family discord and what you see as blurred boundary issues. In your fifth counseling session, the daughter tells you that Americans do not understand their cultural differences and how they affect family rules. Having worked with over a hundred clients struggling with anxiety, you feel she needs to set clear boundaries for her family members. You instruct her to exercise more independence from her family and seek to become self-actualized.

 

As a competent Christian counselor, you also give her Mark 10:6–9 and Luke 14:26–27 and ask her to study them this week to see how individuals must distance themselves and become self-differentiated.

 

In your reply, look for other confirmations in the codes that the therapist either did well or violated competent practice.

 

Your thread must be at least 500 words. In addition to the thread, you will prepare a reply of at least 400 words to 1 classmate’s thread.

 

Your thread is due by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Thursday, and your reply is due by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Sunday.

Click  here  to go to the Faces of Abnormal Psychology website. There, you will see twelve different disorders listed. For this module, view the following disorders: Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Paranoid Schizophrenia

After clicking a disorder, click the Diagnostic Overview tab in the left column. This will cover the major diagnostic features of the disorder. After that, click the DSM-5 Features tab. You can then go though the Case History, Interview, and Treatment sections on the website. Finally, in the Assessment section, you can complete an optional multiple-choice quiz. You have to write a case report for each case study. You should use the format provided on the web page. There is a sample report that you can also view by clicking the link in the upper-right corner.

The format for the sample report is as follows:

Your Name

Instructor’s Name

Class/Section Number

Background Outline the major symptoms of this disorder. Briefly outline the client’s background (age, race, occupations, etc.). Describe any factors in the client’s background that might predispose him or her to this disorder.

Observations Describe any symptoms that you have observed that support the diagnosis. You can include direct quotes or behaviors that you may have observed. Describe any symptoms or behaviors that are inconsistent with the diagnosis. Provide any information that you have about the development of this disorder.

Diagnosis Did you observe any evidence of general medical conditions that might contribute to the development of this disorder? Did you observe any evidence of psychosocial and environmental problems that might contribute to this disorder? As per your observations, what is the client’s overall level of safety regarding potential harm to self or others (suicidality or homicidality)? What cross-cultural issues, if any, affect the differential diagnosis?

Therapeutic Intervention In your opinion, what are the appropriate short-term goals of this intervention? In your opinion, what are the appropriate long-term goals of this intervention? Which therapeutic strategy seems the most appropriate in this case? Why? Which therapeutic modality seems the most appropriate in this case? Why?

Writing Write in a clear, concise, and organized manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in the accurate representation and attribution of sources; and display accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation. Include citations in the text and references at the end of the document in APA format.

In this assignment, you will select one of the claims listed below. Using what you know about the topic, describe at least four claims that might commonly be made that display some of the errors in reasoning covered in this module’s readings. You may have to do a bit of research to find popular positions on these topics.

For example, if the claim is: Children should not be allowed to play violent video games.

Then four common claims about the subject might be:1. Children have always played violent games and they turned out okay.

2. Dr. Dre says that violent video games are okay.

3. Everybody knows that violent video games don’t cause problems.

4. Many countries banned violent video games and they have higher crime rates than we do.

And the errors they represent might be:1. Children have always played violent games and they turned out okay (appeal to tradition and false analogy).

2. Dr. Dre says that violent video games are okay (argument by mistaken authority).

3. Everybody knows that violent video games don’t cause problems (appeal to common belief).

4. Many countries banned violent video games and they have higher crime rates than we do (post hoc ergo propter hoc).

Because1. Any sentence that talks about how we have always done something as a way to justify doing it is an appeal to tradition.

2. The claim looks like it comes from an authority, but Dr. Dre is a musician, not a doctor.

3. Any claim that says that everyone knows something as a way to justify doing it is an appeal to common belief.

4. Showing that two things happened (that video games are accepted and crime is up) does not prove that the two things are related or that the first caused the second; this is called post hoc ergo propter hoc, which means after this, so because of this.

Select one of these topics. Using what you know about the topic and additional research you conduct, describe at least four claims that might commonly be made that display some of the errors in reasoning covered in this module’s readings.1. Should people under 18 be subjected to legal curfews or restricted driving privileges?

2. Should libraries be required to install filtering software or otherwise censor the materials that they provide?

3. Should insurance companies be required to pay for breast reconstruction, birth control pills, or Viagra?

4. Should the use of camera phones be banned in gymnasiums or other locations?

One of the cognitive changes older adults worry about and fear most is memory loss. Some older adults may assume that any memory loss means that they are developing dementia. However, some memory loss that occurs with aging is normal and can be managed by understanding why it occurs and using memory-training exercises to reduce its impact.

Use your module readings and the Argosy University online library resources to research memory training for older adults. Select an authoritative research article for use in this assignment.

Based on the article and one of the cognitive theories covered in your readings, design your own study that tests a program for memory training in older adults. In your paper include the following:An overview of the changes in memory abilities that occur with aging. This overview should include a description of the difference between normal memory loss that occurs with aging and memory loss that is due to dementia. Review at least one cognitive theory discussed in the readings.

 A summary of the research article you chose. The article should provide evidence in support of memory training programs for the elderly such as the one you are proposing.

 The hypothesis of your study.

 Described the methodology of the proposed study including the age range of the participants, and participant variables such as: 1) age, 2) gender, 3) level of education, 3) SES, 4) level of cognitive functioning, etc.  Ethical considerations should also be discussed. 

 The details of your memory training program, such as: 1) the specific aspects of memory loss your training would target, 2) how long the training sessions would last, and 3) the measurements you would use to determine whether your training resulted in significant improvement in memory.

 Your expected results.

 A discussion of whether you would expect any differences based on individual variables such as gender, socio-economic status, level of education, race, ethnicity, etc. Provide reasons for your answer.

Your paper should include a title page with a running head, an abstract and a reference page. The body of the paper should be at least 5 pages in length. It 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.
