    Happiness and Well-Being Reflection Paper

    $10.00

    Assessment 1 Instructions:

    Happiness and WellBeing
    Reflection Paper

    Write a 23 page paper reflecting on what you learned when completing a
    measurement related to wellbeing and how you can apply that to your life.

    Introduction

    Note: You are encouraged to complete the assessments in this course in the
    sequence in which they are presented. It is best to complete Assessment 1 first.
    Assessment 1 will help to prepare you for the other assessments. It is best to
    complete Assessment 4 last since it is the most complex of the four
    assessments.

    Positive psychology explains that a person’s wellbeing can be described on a
    continuum from floundering at low levels of wellbeing to languishing at moderate
    levels of wellbeing, to flourishing by experiencing high levels of wellbeing. The
    goal of most psychotherapy is to help people with symptoms of floundering to
    move up to the less symptomatic and less painful level of languishing. The goal
    of positive psychology is to help people flourish, not just flounder or languish.

    How are you? When asked, most people say “fine” or something similar without
    even thinking about it. But what if someone really asked you. How would you
    answer? Happiness and wellbeing are complex concepts that have different
    components to them. You might be happy about the promotion you received, but
    sad about the argument you had with your sister. You might be happy the week
    you are on vacation and a little sad when you return to your routine.
    Measurements, such as the Positivity Ratio Assessment and the Satisfaction with
    Life Scale, help you think about your wellbeing and happiness across different
    areas of your life or across time. In this assessment, reflect on what you learned
    when completing one of these measurements and how you can apply that to your
    life.

    Latoya Washington-Department of Marketing Case Study

    $0.00

    Study Case Questions

    1- What source of power does Carl have, and what type of power is he using? Which influencing tactic is Carl using during the meeting? Is negotiation and/or the exchange tactic appropriate in this situation?

    2- What source of power does Washington have, and what type of power is she using during the meeting? Which two influencing tactics is Washington primarily using during the meeting? Which influencing tactic is Washington using with the memo? Is the memo a wise political move for Washington? What might she gain and lose by sending it?

    3- What would you do if you were Carl? Would you talk to the dean, letting him know that Washington said she would appeal the policy decision? Which influencing tactic would this discussion involve? Which political behavior would the discussion represent? Would you draft a policy directly stating that graduate assistants can-not be used to grade objective exams? Would your answer to be influenced by your answer to?

    4- If you were Washington, knowing you had no verbal supporters during the meeting, would you have continued to defend your position or agreed to stop using a graduate assistant? What do you think of Washington sending the memo? As a tenured full professor, Washington is secure in her job. Would your answer change if you (as Washington) had not received tenure or promotion to the top rank?

    5- If you were Washington, and Carl drafted a policy and department members agreed with it, what would you do? Would you appeal the decision to the dean? Again, would your answer change if you had not received tenure or promotion to the top rank?

    6- If you were the dean of the School of Business (SB), knowing that the vice president does not want to set a college-wide policy, and Washington appealed to you what would you do? Would you develop a school-wide policy for SB?

    7- At what level (college-wide, by schools, or by departments within each school) should a graduate assistant policy be set?

    Should Eddie Accorsi have spoken up in defense of Washington during the meeting? If you were Accorsi, would you have taken Washington’s side against the other seven members? Would your answer change if you were or were not friends with Washington, and if you were or were not a tenured full professor?

    Riverbend City –Meet the Washingtons

    The Washingtons are a five-generation family living in Riverbend City, a mid-sized city in the Midwest.

     

    Betty Washington – 83 years old

    Betty Washington is 83. She lives with her grandson Bob and his wife Lorraine in Riverbend City. Her son, David, lives across the street.

     

    David Washington – 64 years old

    David Washington is a 64-year-old man who lives in Riverbend City. He has a son named Bob, four grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. He lives alone, across the street from Bob. His mother lives with Bob and his wife, Lorraine.

     

    Bob Washington – 44 years old

    Bob Washington is a 44-year-old man who lives in Riverbend City. He and his wife Lorraine have four children: Tyler, Ava, Emma, and Kyla. Bob’s grandmother, Betty, lives with them.

     

    Lorraine Washington – 43 years old

    Lorraine Washington is a 43-year-old woman who lives in Riverbend City. She and her husband Bob have four children: Tyler, Ava, Emma, and Kyla. Bob’s grandmother, Betty, lives with them.

     

    Ava Washington – 9 years old

    Ava is a 9-year-old girl from a large family. She is the youngest child with two older sisters and an older brother. Her brother Tyler is married and has two children of his own. She and her two sisters live with their parents and their great-grandmother. Their grandfather lives across the street.

    Ava loves her family but feels left out. She used to be close with Tyler, but that changed when he got married. Her oldest sister, Kyla, ignores her, which is a change from the days when Kyla spent time playing with her when she was much younger. She fights often with her other sister, Emma.

    She spends most of her time playing with her friends or on her own. She has close-knit friends; three other girls in her class who live nearby. They often try to get together in the evening and on weekends if their parents will agree to it.

    Ava has a collection of stones that she likes to sort by color, size, or texture depending on the day. She has also developed an interest in maps and tries to figure out different routes for her mom to take when they run errands. Google Earth has become a favorite of hers. Her father often asks her to help him find new routes to places.

    Ava describes herself:

    “I’m pretty smart and do well in school, except in English class. I’m not good there. But I’m really good at math.”
    “I’m well-liked by friends, but not everyone likes me.”
    “I have good friends; we always help each other.”
    “I like horses but not other animals. My friends think that’s a bit weird.”
    “I’m pretty flexible, so I want to be in gymnastics, but my parents say they don’t have the time.”
    “I’m not as pretty as my sisters; my nose is too big.”

     

     

     

     

     

    Emma Washington – 13 years old

     

    Emma is a 13-year-old girl from a large family. She has one younger sister, one older sister, and one older brother. Her brother Tyler is married and has two children of his own. She and her two sisters live with their parents and their great-grandmother. Their grandfather lives across the street.

    Emma gets along well with her father but often argues with her mother and grandfather. She alternates between being close to her sisters and wanting nothing to do with them. Recently, she and Ava, her younger sister, have been fighting a great deal.

    More and more often, Emma takes every comment made personally—believing the speaker means it negatively about her. Her arguments with everyone in the family have left her isolated at home. She spends most of her time on the phone or Internet with friends.

    She spends an hour and a half getting ready every morning and is never satisfied with her appearance. She has taken up three extreme diets in the past year, giving up on them after a few weeks. When she has done well on a diet, she’s received positive comments from boys her age, but otherwise they ignore her.

    When considering what classes to take at school, her parents told her which ones would be most useful for getting into college for a degree to teach elementary school children. But in the end, she chose classes taught by the teachers her friends told her were the best.

    Though she wants to be a teacher, her parents have repeatedly told her they cannot afford to send her to college. They will support her decision if she can figure out how to pay for it. Lately, she’s been saying that she is not sure she will be a teacher. She has stopped making plans for her future and instead spends her time texting with her friends and watching YouTube videos.

    Emma describes herself:

    “I’m always social with my friends, but I try to avoid talking to my family.”
    “I’m overweight and likely to get fat.”
    “Only my friends like me. Everyone else thinks I’m stupid.”

    Kyla Washington – 16 years old

    Kyla is a 16-year-old girl from a large family. She has two younger sisters and an older brother. Her brother Tyler is married and has two children of his own. She and her two sisters live with their parents and their great-grandmother. Their grandfather lives across the street.

    Kyla is close to her mother; they both share in interest in cooking. Since she was little, she has loved the time in the kitchen when she had her mom all to herself. She has been thinking of learning to be a chef after she graduates high school.

    She babysits her niece and nephew to earn extra money and saves some of it toward the costs of a culinary school. Whenever someone will let her use a kitchen, she practices new techniques and makes new recipes. The whole family compliments her on her cooking and thinks she has great talent.

    Kyla argues with her dad constantly, certain that she knows the truth and her dad knows nothing. Most recently, they have been debating censorship and the Internet. Though she is constantly on the Internet, she firmly believes that online content should be controlled, whereas her dad believes in the freedom of speech and expression.

    She posts selfies on social media and then worries about the number of responses she gets. Her parents have provided her with several studies and statistics about the possible dangers of being so heavily involved with social media, but Kyla refuses to reduce her time spent online because she fears she would miss out.

    Kyla describes herself:

    “I’m really great in the kitchen, but not good with school learning.”
    “I’m pretty introverted but can be extroverted if the situation is right, like around my family.”
    “I’ve got a great plan and know I’ll do well as a chef.”
    “I’m pretty in a girl-next-door way, very nice, and talented.”
    “I’ve got a great group of friends and we’re going to be friends until we’re old and gray.”

    Tyler Washington is 23. He lives in Riverbend City with his wife Anna. They have two young children, Liam and Mia

    Applying the DSM

    $20.00

    Assessment 4 Instructions: Applying

    the DSM Create a 1015 slide presentation in which you present information to an
    interested audience about a particular psychological disorder in the DSM5 and
    describe how the diagnosis and the treatment have changed over time.

    Introduction

    Diagnoses change and evolve over time. Ensuring accuracy of diagnosis yields
    the implementation of the best treatment and results. A common controversy in
    psychology research and literature involves how to best study psychotherapy.
    One argument is represented by a perspective that sees much of clinical practice
    as unscientific and hopes to demonstrate that types of therapy are clinically
    effective. This is usually done with randomized clinical trials, where the technique
    in question is implemented with one group of clients and compared to a Control
    condition, in which either no treatment, or some alternate technique is provided.

    Critics disagree with this approach. They note that this research approach
    emphasizes small and relatively meaningless distinctions between techniques,
    focuses on brands of therapy rather than examining the common processes that
    occur in counseling sessions, and does not allow us to study what actually leads
    to change in psychotherapy.

    Various scholars and practitioners have unique views on diagnosis and
    treatments. Ensuring that literature and studies support your views with result in
    effective implementation of the DSM5.

    Overview

    Media and Internet: Accurate vs Inaccurate

    $20.00

    Assessment 7 Instructions:

    Homework: Media and Internet: Accurate vs Inaccurate
    This assignment focuses on about medical information on the news and in
    media.

    Credible Medical Sources

    Many sources exist to find information such as TV, the Internet, newspapers,
    magazines, and medical journals, to name a few. Learning how to evaluate
    sources of media can be an important skill to make the best decisions for your
    health care or the health care of your family. How do you know if a source is
    credible, and what can we do to counteract medical misinformation? This
    misinformation may be tailored around personal beliefs and bias.

    Without our awareness, we are constantly preventing, detecting, and fighting
    health threats every day. Medical advice can come with a cost. What can we do
    for prevention? Maintaining your health can keep you out of the doctor’s office
    and save you money. We will take a closer look to have more awareness about
    our wellbeing related to our nutrition, body, and environment.

    Overview

    We all learn about medical information on the news and in media. At some point,
    we have all heard about healthrelated information in the media or looked up
    symptoms on the Internet; however, how do we know if our search is accurate?
    How do we know if what we hear is true?

    Part One: Readings and Analysis

    For this assignment, you will create a presentation in which you provide a critical
    analysis of a time in which you were influenced by inaccurate information, or you
    found accurate information through the media that helped you or someone you
    know. Your audience can be informal, such as a friend or family member, or

    formal, such as a coworker or attendees at a conference presentation. Include
    the following.

    1. Identify a time when the media or the Internet influenced you either with accurate
    information or inaccurate information.

    2. Explain the following regarding the selected topic.

    o Where did you learn about this topic? For example, did you see this in a movie, book,
    or other media, or did you search for information yourself on the Internet?

    o What specific symptoms or prevention methods did you identify?

    3. Find one or more additional sources to support how you determined if the
    information was inaccurate or accurate.

    4. Explain how you determined if you found either inaccurate or accurate information
    about the topic locating resources and evaluating the credibility of the main source.
