Week 4 – Assignment

Evaluate an ArgumentPlease read the instructions below for information on how to complete this assignment. 

For a list of resources that are specific to this assignment, please utilize the “Resources Tab” located below.

If you feel that you need help with any of the main topics for this week, please revisit the Practice Activities located in the Weekly Overview.AssignmentResourcesChoose an argument that you found online (you may utilize an argument from a video posted online, a blog, a news source, a political website, or any other resource that will allow you to satisfactorily meet the requirements of the assignment). You may also select from this week’s relevant recommended resources.

Once you have selected your source, you will then evaluate the argument being presented in the source in an essay of 400 words. In your evaluation:
Identify the issue, the premises, and conclusions of the argument.Determine whether the argument is sound or unsound (deductive), valid or invalid (deductive), or strong or weak (inductive).Explain why you have chosen to label it as sound or unsound, valid or invalid, and/or strong or weak.
Use the “Steps for evaluating an argument ” template for assistance with structuring your evaluation; however, you should construct and submit your evaluation in an essay format. Do not merely turn in a bulleted outline. 

The essay must be 400 words in length, excluding title and reference pages, and formatted according to APA style. For information regarding APA formatting, including samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center, located within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar in your online course.

Ethics & Standards of Psychology (PSYC – 8703 – 1)

 

Confidentiality, Privacy, and Privilege

 

 

(5-page paper DOUBLE SPACED including reference page) – APA STYLE – must pass turnitin

 

In research, investigators must often collect data about very sensitive and private aspects of participants’ lives. In clinical work, psychology professionals are often privy to highly charged emotions and situations. In fact, due to the highly sensitive nature of their work, psychology professionals or those studying to be psychology professionals are often in morally ambiguous situations, or they may be working with individuals with conflicting demands, needs, or perceptions of what constitutes ethical behavior.

 

Concepts integral to the protection of information and individual rights include confidentiality, privacy, and privilege. These concepts often are used interchangeably, but they have distinct similarities and differences. It is imperative that psychology professionals fully understand their responsibilities related to each one. Failure to do so puts them at risk of violating trust-based relationships and may have significant ramifications.

 

For this Application, review the following Case Study:

 

You are conducting a study of resilience among families that have experienced domestic violence. You will meet with participants four times over a 1-year period, conducting numerous assessments of their psychological well-being and daily functioning in order to study patterns over time.

 

Maria is a 32-year-old Latina woman. She has volunteered herself and her daughter, Rosalinda (age 6) to participate in your study. Maria explains that she is separated from Rosalinda’s father, who has allegedly committed violent acts in the home. When Maria and Rosalinda came to the first data collection session, Maria read and signed an informed consent form while in the waiting room. The form was fairly standard, citing all the usual terms of and exceptions to confidentiality.

 

Over the course of the study, during the sessions, you begin to know both mother and daughter well. As you make your way through the daily functioning assessment interviews at the third session, Maria tells you that she has started to date again. Maria seems unusually anxious about finishing the interviews quickly. She watches the clock and interrupts you to confirm that she will be receiving the same $50 stipend that she received at the end of previous sessions. You also notice that Rosalinda’s distress symptoms appear to be getting worse. For example, she is extremely upset when Maria goes to the restroom and cannot be calmed for the rest of the session. However, you are not a clinician, so your impressions are based on your own personal experiences with children.

 

Shortly after Maria and Rosalinda leave, a man approaches your office and introduces himself as Maria’s husband. He appears to have followed them and wants to know what she and Rosalinda were doing in your office. He does not seem threatening in any way and seems quite civil and pleasant.

 

The Case Study allows you to apply ethics to real-life situations and demonstrate your understanding of the decision making needed to resolve such conflicts. It is rare for an ethical dilemma to involve only one issue, so you should take the time to reflect on the complications that present themselves in the situations described in the Case Study.

 

For this week’s Application, review the overview of the five ethical decision-making models:

 Koocher and Keith-Spiegel’s nine-step ethical decision-making modelCanadian Code of Ethics for Psychologists: The 10-step ethical decision-making processRest’s four-step ethical decision-making modelJones’s four-step intensity-contingent ethical decision-making modelFisher’s eight-step ethical decision-making model

 

For this week’s Application, submit a 5-page paper (including references) that includes the following:

 An explanation of the ethical dilemmas you perceive to be involved in the Case Study.A description of what you might do in response to the dilemma. Include the following in your explanation:A step-by-step application of one of the decision-making models provided above.An explanation of the possible outcomes for each individual in the Case Study.An explanation of any benefits and limitations of the model you selected.

Final Project Instructions

This project is intended to tie together all that you have studied during this course. Write a four to five page paper that incorporates the content of this class with the information gleaned from the movie, Harry & Tonto.

For example as you watch the movie do you see any examples of ageism, myths of aging, or examples of attitudes toward aging? If you do see examples of these concepts then write about the examples and explain the concepts.

You can write about any suggested idea about theories of aging that the movie might suggest. Basically you should review the writings of each week and then look for content from the course and explain the course content in light of the movie.

You may note the one of the outcomes of this course is, “To develop a healthy perspective on one’s own aging and one’s role in aging families and societies.” You could write your entire paper developing concepts about one’s own aging and role. There are plenty of family members and younger people in the movie that will help you craft this venue if you should choose to write from this perspective.

Write a four to five page paper, not including the cover and resource page that includes:

·         A minimum of ten concepts noted with citations from the course material and applied to the characters in the movie. Some of the topics you write about might only be implied or spoken about in the movie but not seen.

·         Citations can come from the course materials or research you have done.

·         No only should you give detail of the movie that illustrations the point you are making, but also make sure you explain the concepts from the course that you are applying to the movie.

·         The paper should have an introduction and a conclusion. Please write the paper so that it flows easily through the topics you want to discuss.

·         The paper should give a glimpse of all that you have studied during this course.

Support your statements with evidence from the required studies and your research.

phyllis young: PHI Module 3 Assignment

 

PART I:

 

 

 

Directions: The following problems ask you to evaluate hypothetical situations and/or concepts related to the reading in this module.   While there are no “correct answers” for these problems, you must demonstrate a strong understanding of the concepts and lessons from this module’s reading assignment.   Please provide detailed and elaborate responses to the following problems.   Your responses should include examples from the reading assignments and should utilize APA guidelines and should utilize APA guidelines.   Responses that fall short of the assigned minimum page length will not earn any points.

 

 

 

1.      Which sort of world would you prefer: a world in which there is a clearly ordered ranking of values, without conflict or a world in which values genuinely conflict, and no rank ordering is possible?  Your response should be at least one half of one page in length.

 

 

 

2.      Suppose that you adopt Susan Wolf’s outlook: moral considerations are important, but they need not always be dominant.  How would you decide when and which moral demands could be set aside?  For example, suppose you are struggling with the question of whether to buy a Rolex or a less luxurious but perfectly adequate timepiece.  You realize that buying the Rolex is a wasteful use of resources that could turned to morally better uses; but you enjoy having some wasteful flashy luxuries in your life.  The question is not whether buying the Rolex is morally wrong (you are a utilitarian, and you have already concluded that it is morally wrong); rather, the question is whether this is an occasion in which you should deny moral considerations a dominant role.  Would you use moral considerations in answering that question?  Why or why not?  Your response should be at least one half of one page in length.

 

 

 

3.      Identify three different cultural groups that you belong to. Do any of these groups uphold conflicting morals, and if so how do you negotiate between them?  Your response should be at least one page in length.

 

 

 

4.      Think about an action that you have done before that you felt was selfless. Explain how that action could be perceived as selfish.  Your response should be at least one half of one page in length.

 

 

 

5.      Suppose you were in a situation where you must decide between stealing, which you believe is morally wrong, or letting a child go hungry.  Which choice would you consider morally correct and why?   Your response should be at least one page in length.

 

 

 

6.      Suppose that you know that if your friend leads a morally good life, they will be very unhappy.  Would you advise them to be a morally good person or not?  Why or why not?  Your response should be at least one page in length.

 

 

 

7.      Imagine that the scenario in question six is charged so that it is you who will be unhappy if you lead a morally good life.  Would your advice change?  Why or why not? Your response should be at least one half of one page in length.

 

 

 

8.      Summarize Häyry’s argument in this week’s reading.  Your response should be at least one half of one page in length.

 

 

 

 

 

PART II: Journal

Directions: Please provide detailed and elaborate responses to the following questions.  Your responses should include examples from the reading assignments.  Each response should be at least one half of one page in length and utilize APA format.

 

 

 

1.      What is the difference between a moral judgment and an aesthetic judgment?

 

 

 

2.      Define cultural relativism.

 

 

 

3.      Describe the problems with cultural relativism.  In light of its problems, are there any valuable insights the theory brings to moral theorizing?
