Read the “Risk-Need-Responsivity Model for Offender Assessment and Rehabilitation 2007-06” article.

Review the following scenario:

·         The client is a 32-year-old male who was released from incarceration 6 months ago. The client had previously been incarcerated for 2 years for two felony drug offenses due to possession and distribution of methamphetamine. He received treatment while incarcerated, but he relapsed and used methamphetamine 2 months after he was released. The client is positive for Hepatitis C, which he contracted while he was in prison. He was receiving medication for his condition until last month when he did not supply a required document to the Medicaid office on time. As a result, he lost his medical coverage.The client has been married for 5 years, and he has a 3-year-old child. The client was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at age 28. The client has exhibited emotional outbursts and episodes of perpetrating domestic violence with his wife since his release from incarceration. The client obtained his GED at age 25, but he never attended college. The client also had a learning disorder of dyslexia during his adolescent years. He has minimal job skills, as he only worked at one job as a dishwasher for 2 months during his adult life. He primarily obtained income from selling drugs prior to incarceration. The client is currently seeking employment, but he is experiencing difficulty obtaining employment due to his prior criminal conviction.

Create a mind map of the needs of the client that fit in each category. Specify 3 needs in each of the following categories:

·         Health needs

·         Social or relationship needs

·         Problem-solving needs

·         Emotional needs

·         Belief or value needs

·         Education or career needs

Create a second mind map of the risks of the client that fit in each category. Specify 3 risks in each of the following categories:

·         Health risks

·         Social or relationship risks

·         Problem-solving risks

·         Emotional risks

·         Belief or value risks

·         Education or career risks

Answer the following questions in a 700-word essay:

·         Why is it important to reassess the needs of a client after he or she is released from incarceration?

·         What are some ways by which a person’s needs and risks can be mitigated to reduce the rate of recidivism once an offender is released from incarceration?

Conflict in organizations is not only inevitable but is also a key driver for positive change and innovation. If everyone remained at ease with the status quo, societies would not progress in the way that they have historically done. The outcomes of conflict can often be tied to the concepts of power and politics in an organization. Those who maintain the balance of power in a relationship can arguably leverage this power to affect the outcome.

Paper Assignment:

You will have to select and answer two (2) sociological questions. Each answer must be at least one full page in length, but no more than 2 pages. Therefore your paper will be from 2 to 4 pages total; no less, no more. The questions will be familiar as they will come directly or indirectly from either the text or discussion questions. Your responses should be developed analytically and be more than opinion-based. In other words, use the knowledge from your reading to support your answer. You may also use additional sources of your choosing but if you do so, you MUST cite your sources.

Your paper should be formatted as follows: 1-inch margins: top, bottom, right, and left.  The font must be Times New Roman (size 12) or a similar type.  The paper should be double spaced.  The actual content of the paper must be at least one full page, meaning, the title and your name do NOT count toward the one-page minimum requirement.

The questions from which you will select are:

1)  Why does the U.S. have one of the highest rates of incarceration?  Do you believe that U.S. citizens are inherently more deviant?

2) How does the split labor market lead to further separation between the rich and the poor?

3) Discuss the ways in which the theory of life chances contributes to having/obtaining wealth, power, and success.

4) Describe how the dehumanization process takes place within an organization with which you are familiar. Consider how statuses and roles within organizations contribute to dehumanization.

5) What types of social changes, social problems, and social benefits might occur from the increase in life expectancy?
