Case Study Four Worksheet

Case 4. Research on Intimate Partner

Violence and the Duty to Protect

Dr. Daniela Yeung, a community psychologist, has been conducting a federally funded ethnographic study of men’s attitudes toward intimate partner violence following conviction and release from prison for spousal abuse. Over the course of a year, she has had individual monthly interviews with 25 participants while they were in jail and following their release. Aiden, a 35-year-old male parolee convicted of seriously injuring his wife, has been interviewed by Dr. Yeung on eight occasions. The interviews have covered a range of personal topics including Aiden’s problem drinking, which is marked by blackouts and threatening phone calls made to his parents and girlfriend when he becomes drunk, usually in the evening. To her knowledge, Aiden has never followed through on these threats. It is clear that Aiden feels very comfortable discussing his life with Dr. Yeung. One evening Dr. Yeung checks her answering machine and finds a message from Aiden. His words are slurred and angry: “Now that you know the truth about what I am you know that there is nothing you can do to help the evil inside me. The bottle is my savior and I will end this with them tonight.” Each time she calls Aiden’s home phone she gets a busy signal.

Ethical Dilemma

Dr. Yeung has Aiden’s address, and after 2 hours, she is considering whether or

not to contact emergency services to go to Aiden’s home or to the homes of his

parents and girlfriend.

Respond to the following questions in 1,500 to 1,750 words.

1. Why is this an ethical dilemma? Which APA Ethical Principles help frame the nature of the dilemma? 

2. Does this situation meet the standards set by the duty to protect statue? How might whether or not Dr. Yeung’s state includes researchers under such a statute influence Dr. Yeung’s ethical decision making? How might the fact that Dr. Yeung is a research psychologist without training or licensure in clinical practice influence the ethical decision? 

3. How are APA Ethical Standards 2.01a b, and c; 2.04; 3.04; 3.06; 4.01; 4.02; and 10.10a relevant to this case? Which other standards might apply?

4. What are Dr. Yeung’s ethical alternatives for resolving this dilemma? Which alternative best reflects the Ethics Code aspirational principle and enforceable standard, as well as legal standards and Dr. Yeung’s obligations to stakeholders? 

5. What steps should Dr. Yeung take to ethically implement her decision and monitor its effects?

Case Study 1 Instructions

The purpose of Case Study 1 is to provide an opportunity to demonstrate course-related knowledge in speaking more “deeply” about 1 specific client. Your case study will identify specific behaviors and how those behaviors are evaluated in light of a specific theory. You will also identify ways that specific behaviors can be addressed in a manner consistent with the theories of your field. (For research-oriented internships, you will identify specific variables being studied and provide rationale for the study.)

With explicit permission from your site supervisor, choose a case, circumstance, or situation at your site. If an appropriate case cannot be obtained from your site, then you may complete a case study on a historical or fictional character. You will need explicit permission from your instructor to use a historical or fictional character.

Discuss the following steps with your supervisor:

· Without violating confidentiality, provide background information on your subject (or group/situation), including behaviors observed, any medical information that is available, socio-cultural factors that might affect treatment, etc.

· Provide information about current behaviors, specifically maladaptive behaviors, and current treatment plans/progress.

· Using knowledge gained in your study of psychology in general and/or your cognate in particular, provide a brief theoretical explanation of your case.

Using knowledge gained in your study of psychology in general and/or your cognate in particular, identify a treatment plan detailing how you would continue to work with this case. (This treatment plan may be hypothetical.)

The paper must fulfil the following criteria:

· 3–4 pages

· Current APA format

· This document must maintain the strictest level of confidentiality.

PAPER ASSIGNMENT

CHANGING BEHAVIOR

Behavioral psychologists have repeatedly demonstrated that most people can modify their

own behavior through the application of operant principles. The text authors delineate

some of the mechanisms involved in self control, such as self reinforcement and stimulus

control. The following exercise, outlines steps (suggested by Anthony Grasha), that will

allow you to experience directly the often, powerful effects of behavior change and

modification. You will be designing a program for yourself in order to change a behavior

that you would like to either increase, decrease or eliminate entirely.

1.

Identify a habit or behavior that you would like to

change

, either by decreasing it or

increasing it.  

It could be a habit you want to eliminate like smoking, or a behavior

you want to increase, like studying more. Set a very specific goal to change that is

observable and measurable

.

a.

Don’t say “I want to get more exercise”; it’s too vague. You will need to

operationally define

“more exercise” and set a goal that is measurable and

observable; such as: “ I need to start jogging one mile every day”.

b.

Don’t say: “ I need to lose weight”; say “ I need to lose 10 pounds in 8 weeks.

c.

” Don’t say:  “I need to cut back on my smoking”, say: “ I need to cut my

cigarette smoking from one pack a day to half a pack a day for three

consecutive months”;

d.

Don’t say: “I need to spend more time studying”, state “ I need to study at

least 1 hour a day, 5 times a week”.

2.

Measure your Baseline

– How often do you currently engage in the behavior or habit

you want to change? In other words, if you are trying to cut back or quit smoking

how many cigarettes are you smoking per day now, before you start on a change

program?

3.

Analyze your “triggers”

or environments that make your habitual behavior more

likely to occur

.

In other words:

a.

What

settings, people, or times of day or week trigger or stimulate your bad

habit or behavior to occur? (e.g. smoking, eating or drinking too much);

Or,

b.

What setting, people or times of day or week tend to prevent you from

engaging in the behavior or habit you want to increase? (e.g. studying or

exercising more).

c.

Also look if you have paired or associated two stimuli (e.g. the smell of coffee

triggers your cigarette craving).

4.

After analyzing these triggers, describe how you would avoid them or change them.

In other words, how would you control your environment so as to optimize your

success? How will you gain control over the settings that either trigger the bad

habits or prevent you from building good habits.  Some people may smoke while

drinking coffee, so giving up coffee may help in changing the target behavior.

5.

Identify how you could use

classical conditioning

to change your behavior (eg. Pair a

noxious stimulus with a bad habit, or a pleasant sound or smell with a good habit

you want to build).

6.

Identify

operant conditioning

techniques such as:

6.

Identify

operant conditioning

techniques such as:

  

a.

positive reinforcers or rewards for yourself (e.g. reading a favorite magazine, 

telephoning a friend, taking a hot bath) 

b.

Identify any possible negative reinforcers, such as avoiding something 

unpleasant (eg. Avoiding a bad grade or health problems).  Select one or 

more rewards that are likely to influence the behavior you want to change 

and will motivate you. 

c.

Can you think of any 

mild

aversives or punishment for yourself? 

7.

Identify how you would use 

observational learning or modeling

to change your 

behavior:

a.

What models can you select that you can observe, learn from or imitate to 

some degree? 

b.

Describe the kind of social support you would enlist. Modifying behavior can 

be difficult and so it often helps to have a support group or someone to talk 

to who can keep you honest and committed to your plan and possibly 

motivate you and help you meet your goals. For example, if you are starting a

new workout plan have a friend join you if possible or find a workout 

partner.

8.

Evaluate your results:

a.

Describe how you will monitor and record your progress toward changing 

the behavior. Draw a chart that demonstrates what you will be recording.

b.

For a short time, try your proposed plan on yourself to test it. Of all the 

possible techniques you have described in your plan which one do you think 

will be most effective?

c.

Describe any success or failure. What would you attribute them to and how 

would you change the plan for the future?
