 When you think of an intelligent person what are the qualities that make that person intelligent? If psychologists do not agree about the nature of intelligence, should we still base decisions on tests that measure only two domains such as math and verbal skills? Why or Why not? What would your suggestion be when it comes to measuring intelligence? Please be sure to complete the readings before posting to this discussion. 

 

Many people get all or most of their news from social media. For this project, we are going to be analyzing the content of several social media sites from major news sources, paying particular attention to social media standards, practices, and regulation.

Where do you get your news? Start by going to one major news site’s FACEBOOK page (CNN, MSNBC, FOX, etc.) Try another different news site’s TWITTER feed, and third choose another social media site such as Reddit, Pinterest, or another (preferably one you use, if there is one).

Analyze the sites in a 3-5 page total paper. In your analysis, be sure to include the following: General introduction to your thoughts on the social media you studied Several social media practices you observed (e.g., what gets the most interaction?) Examples of regulation of social media and discussion of such regulation (Is it good, bad, or indifferent? How could circumstances change the situation?) Analysis of ethical concerns (e.g., can you see examples of bias?) What is the culture of each site – how do users seem to respond to questionable items? (Is racism or open mocking ignored or pursued?) Conclusion of your findings

 

Design your own classical conditioning experiment. Be sure to identify all of the following; unconditioned stimulus (UCS), unconditioned response (UCR), conditioned stimulus (CS), and conditioned response (CR). Please refer to the module and chapter on learning and describe to me your proposed study. Remember the length requirement for writing assignments. word count 250 words.

Assignment 1: Culture in Human Services

This module elaborated on the influence of diversity in human services organizations. You learned about the costs and benefits of having a diverse direct service staff in a human services agency. You also learned about the attitudes of minority workers serving minority communities and minority and nonminority workers serving clients from different cultures.

In this assignment, explore the influence of diversity in the workplace in addition to the effects of diversity of client populations on direct service workers.

Tasks:

Using your textbook, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, address the following:Discuss the effects of service providers working in their own culture.Discuss the effects of service providers working with different cultures.In your answer, provide your opinion, with support from research, on costs and benefits of each situation.

In social work, advocacy is very important to promote social change. Letters are often used as an effective tool to bring attention to social justice issues. This assignment requires you to choose a social justice issue that is important to you, gather current research and data on the subject matter, and write a one page professional and formal letter to your elected local, state, or national representative responsible for your social justice matter you have identified. 

Social Justice issue on (Veteran Homeless).

Choose a social welfare problem that you believe is in need of change and write a letter to an elected local, state, or federal official regarding the issue you have chosen. You are not required to send the letter; however, it must be written in a professional, well organized, clear, and concise format.Writing letters to public officials is a form of political advocacy for clients and social workers.  

 For this Assignment, you will write an advocacy letter to public official about a problem and a policy. In addition, you will write a 1-2 page explanation of your letter. Your explanation will provide the rationale behind your chosen issue and the approach you took with the specific representative.

 In the same document, submit both Part I and II of the assignment (2-4 pages):

Part I: Letter to Representative Your letter should include:A description of the social welfare issueAn explanation of how you want the legislator to respond to the issue (vote, create legislation, hold public hearings, etc.) and why.Support of your viewpoints with credible facts and research.

Part II: Explanation (1-2 pages, double-space, APA format)For this part of the assignment, provide an explanation of:Why you selected the issueHow the issue affects social workThe reason you chose the specific representativeThe approach you took with the representative (consider the representative’s voting history, political affiliation, and any other factors you considered)

Throughout the HSBE I and II courses, you have explored the biological,   psychological, and sociological aspects of different phases of the human   life span. You have explored life-span development theories that help   to explain human behavior. You also have considered how the social   environment influences individuals and their behavior.Gathering facts about a client’s life span through the interview process   is an important social work skill. This week, you practice this skill   by interviewing an older adult using the questions in the Life Span   Interview document available in this week’s resources.

 For this week’s   Assignment you transform your interview notes into a narrative—that is, a   life story—of the older adult ­you interviewed. You interweave within   this narrative an analysis of the life story by applying person and the environment concepts to your understanding and interpretation of that story.

Submit a 3- to 5-page paper in which you provide a narrative analysis of the Life Span Interview you completed. 

The paper should:Provide a chronological history of the individual’s major life experiences.

Identify specific biological, psychological and sociological influences that shaped the individual’s experience.

Analyze the individual’s experiences by applying theory and concepts learned throughout both HBSE courses.

Provide your reflection of the experience, both in interviewing the individual and analyzing their narrative.

Explain what you learned and how you will apply this to future social work practice

Discussion Impact of Ageism and Adultism,

Adultism refers to the oppression of young people by adults. The popular saying “children should be seen and not heard” is used as a way to remind a child of his or her place and reaffirm the adult’s power in the relationship. The saying suggests that children’s voices are not as important or as valid as an adult’s and they should remain quiet. Children are often relegated to subordinate positions due to socially constructed beliefs about what they can or cannot accomplish or what they should or should not do; this in turn compromises youth’s self-determination. This oppression is further highlighted when considering the intersection of age with race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and sexual orientation. You will be asked to consider all of these when reviewing the Logan case and Parker case.

an analysis of the influence of adultism in the Logan case. 

Then, explain how gender, race, class, and privilege interact with adultism to influence the family’s discourse related to Eboni’s pregnancy as well as other family dynamics.

Developing Alliances in Social Work Practice

Have you ever heard the term or saying “straight but not narrow”? This is an example of a statement of being an ally—recognizing one’s unique position of privilege yet standing with others who are oppressed. By taking this course, you have started the process of becoming an ally.

 Evan and Washington (2013) identify the steps toward being an ally, which include being supportive of those who are unlike you, learning about other cultures, becoming aware of the oppression and marginalization, and becoming aware of one’s own privilege. Getting involved in issues is part of that process. You will consider how to become an ally this week.

To prepare: Review “Working With Survivors of Human Trafficking: The Case of Veronica.” Think about how one might become an ally to victims of human trafficking . Then go to a website that addresses human trafficking either internationally or domestically.

Post a brief description of the website you visited. 

Explain how you might support Veronica and other human trafficking victims incorporating the information you have found.

 Explain how you can begin to increase your awareness of this issue and teach others about human trafficking victims. 

Describe opportunities to get involved and become an ally to those who have been trafficked. Identify steps you can take to begin to support this group.
