Vignette

Jane is a 19-year old female. She presents as markedly underweight, with significant agitation. Both of her parents are present for the intake session. Her mother is an attractive Asian woman of slight build.  Her father is a Latino male who appears deeply concerned about his daughter.  Jane is their only child.
 

The parents report that when Jane was 2-years old, she was sexually abused by an older female cousin that was diagnosed with autism. While this cousin has not been part of Jane’s life since, this remains a family secret and no legal action was ever taken due to the cousin’s mental illness.  The parents do believe this affected Jane and are hoping to approach this issue and find resolution and healing. They have approached their family doctor who has known Jane all of her life. He suggested that the family seek counseling and consider hospitalization for Jane.
 

Reportedly, Jane has been erratic, impulsive and self-destructive throughout much of her life. Her parents report that Jane suffers from mood swings, angry outbursts and has alienated most of her friends.  She has a history of self-abuse and suicidal ideation.  While Jane has reportedly never made an attempt on her life, her parents have always been cautious and concerned. Jane has a history of cutting her wrists, but the parents report this was superficial and did not require medical attention. Jane denies doing this at present.
 

Jane has also been struggling with anorexia and bulimia since age 12.  They have taken her to doctors and therapists with no success.  In the past few months, Jane has lost a significant amount of weight, is not sleeping and is “talking crazy”.  The parents often find Jane up all night having conversations with herself that make no sense.  Jane’s mother begins to cry as she expresses a fear that her daughter is using drugs and worries that she will overdose and die. At this point, Jane starts wringing her hands and looking around the room and asks if she can be excused to use the restroom.

Week Four Journal

Reflect back about what you have learned in this course about how to construct high quality arguments for positions. Give an example of how the ability to construct good arguments could help you in your career or in your daily life. Also, in what ways will the skill of being able to evaluate the quality of reasoning better enable you to discover what is true and to make better choices? (Give a specific example of each).

Finally, consider the argument you have been developing for your writing assignments. How has considering objections helped you clarify your perspective? What might you add to your argument to make it more convincing in light of those objections? What points would you recommend that people keep in mind in order to be fair to both sides?

Your journal entry must be at least 250 words. You do not need to follow APA style for this journal entry, but you should proofread your work to eliminate errors of grammar and spelling.

Ashford PSY 104 week 5 discussion question

Prior to completing this discussion, please read Module 15 in the textbook, read the  Shetgiri et. al (2012) article, review the information from Module 1 about Bronfenbrenner’s Ecological theory, and review any relevant Instructor Guidance.

Utilize Bronfenbrenner’s ecological theory to address the topic of motivations for and influences on bullying.  Using each of the 5 systems in Bronfenbrenner’s theory, identify and describe how a child’s environment might pre-dispose him or her to bully.  For example, within a person’s microsystem are the parents.  How might parents be an influencing factor on whether or not a child is prone to bullying? Find and report (with proper citation) one current statistic on the factors influencing school bullying behaviors.  Does this statistic seem to follow the same trend supported by Bronfenbrenner’s theory?  If not, explain how it challenges the theory.  Then, reflect on friendships in childhood and adolescence and address the positive and negative influences that they can have on bullying behaviors.  Finally, utilize problem-solving techniques in exploring developmental issues, grounded in child development, in order to provide one unique solution to reduce or completely end bullying.

Can this be done by 12 hours?

Sometimes, people just want others to listen. They want to voice their concerns and feelings, while knowing they were heard accurately. As a professional, it is just as important to respond to clients in a way that allows them to believe that you have heard them. Your responses can demonstrate your understanding of where that person is at that moment. During this process, it is just as important to correct misconceptions of the client when listening.
