No unread replies.No replies. Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Refer to the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric under the Settings icon above for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated. Although there are many controversial topics in social psychology, this week’s theme of altruism versus egoism is one of the most provocative. The debate over whether humans are capable of pure altruism versus egoism is typically witnessed in the philosophy realm. However, there have been many social psychology studies conducted to determine whether or not humans are, in fact, capable of pure altruism. There is sound research to support both sides of the argument. Some of the research has shown that people do good deeds because they derive some benefit from them while others do good deeds for completely selfless reasons. This week your discussion will consist of a debate with your classmates on altruism versus egoism. You and your classmates will consider and cover the following topics in your arguments: Your responses must be scholarly and avoid unsupported claims (e.g., personal opinions and generalizations). That is, you must support your assertions with credible, scientific evidence (peer-reviewed research). You have been assigned randomly to argue in favor of either altruism, egoism, or somewhere in between. This discussion may require you to take a perspective that differs from your own view of the issue. However, you must take the position of the topic to which you have been assigned. For example, if you are assigned to argue in favor of egoism but you really believe that people are somewhere in between altruism and egoism, you must find research to support arguments in favor of egoism. Your post should be approximately 500 words in length and include appropriate APA-style citations and references as outlined in the . Purchase the answer to view it
Describe a clinical situation where you were concerned (e.g., a higher incidence of falls, infections, errors, etc.) and where decisions were made to improve the situation. What sources of evidence were utilized to make the decision (e.g., personal experience, expert advice, etc.)? if you have been in the health care setting whether it is with visiting or working, have you observed a practice which you think could be completed in a more efficient way? Did you see a practice which was not followed per guidelines? What was your impression? Examine the sources of knowledge that contribute to professional nursing. Evaluate published nursing research for credibility and clinical significance related to evidence-based practice Recognize the role of research findings in evidence-based practice.

For this Assignment, minimum of 350. Read the questions and answer each one.Include references. Focus on the behavior intervention plan (BIP). The necessity of basing effective, function-based BIP designs on the probable functions of the target behaviors was stressed. Identifying the probable function of behavior can be accomplished through the analysis of data collected using the Functional Behavior Assessment or the Functional Behavior Analysis. Strategies of classroom management and specific behavior modification approaches were covered. Finally, the barriers to developing and implementing BIPs in the classroom were presented. Using the knowledge you have gained regarding considerations that must be made in designing individualized behavior plans, discuss the following: 1. Identify the eight components of a behavior intervention plan. 2. Explain how positive reinforcement and negative reinforcement maintain behavior. a) Provide an example of an interfering classroom behavior that has been maintained on negative reinforcement and explain how extinction could be used to modify the behavior. b) Provide an example of an interfering classroom behavior that has been maintained on positive reinforcement and explain how differential reinforcement could be used to modify the behavior. 3. Point out the barriers to the development and implementation of BIPs in the classroom and identify possible solutions to these barriers. a) How do cultural influences impact your approaches to behavior modification?

For this assignment I want you to read the two example research papers (which are from previous Methods of Research classes) and design tables that are modeled off of what those papers use. A few notes on those tables: 1. There are differences between the table designs in the two papers – I don’t care if they are exactly the same, I just want you to make use of the basic presentational design of the tables in the papers. 2. Making tables isn’t an exact science – what I want you to learn is a way to effectively present the results of your analyses in a way that conveys the necessary information in an organized and coherent manner. For this assignment, I want you to use a variant of the congress.gdt data set that you used on the multiple regression assignment (it can be found in this week’s assignment folder). number of articles about members of Congress (art_count) ideological extremity (dwnom1abs, which goes from ‘0’, which is ideologically moderate, to ‘1’, which is ideologically extreme, and is a continuous variable) Congressional session (cong) partisanship (pid, 0=Democratic, 1=Republican) whether the member of Congress is a committee chair or not (commchair, 1=committee chair, 0=not committee chair) whether the member is a part of Congressional leadership (alllship, 1=member of leadership, 0=not member of leadership). Do the following: 1. Create a table of summary statistics on the continuous variables and that presents the means and standard deviations. Summary statistics for the variables can be found in Gretl by going to . 1a. Interpret the means and standard deviations. 2. Create a correlation table between the number of articles and all of the other variables, being sure to indicate significance levels of each correlation in some way. 2a. Interpret the correlations. 3. Create regression table presenting the results of models. See example paper #1 in particular on how to do this. These models are: A regression explaining the variance in article counts using ideological extremity. A regression model explaining the variance in article counts using all of the other variables. 3a. Interpret the results of the regression models. 4. In each of your interpretations, be sure to explain the results using complete sentences and the language we’ve been working on through past assignments. The example research papers are good examples of this.
Clients with personality disorders often find it difficult to overcome their problems and function in daily life. Even when these clients are aware that they have a dysfunction with their personality and are open to counseling, treatment can be challenging for both the client and the therapist. For this Discussion, as you examine personality disorders, consider therapeutic approaches you might use with clients. a description of the personality disorder you selected. Explain a therapeutic approach (including psychotropic medications if appropriate) you might use to treat a client presenting with this disorder, including how you would share your diagnosis of this disorder to the client in order to avoid damaging the therapeutic relationship. Support your approach with evidence-based literature.
Out-of-control sexual behaviors are sexual health problems in which one lacks the ability to control their sexual urges, thoughts, or behaviors. These behaviors may lead to sexual exploitation or the act(s) of nonconsensual abuse or exploitation of another person sexually. As a counselor, we may work with clients who experience out-of-control sexual behaviors as well as clients who are survivors of sexual exploitation. In this week’s discussion board post, we will explore the role of rehabilitation among both populations. Imagine Josef has come to counseling. Josef’s wife has “forced” Josef to go with her to couples counseling because, as she shared to their couples counselor, “Josef is cheating on me. I caught him texting a picture of his penis to some woman!” The couples counselor referred Josef to work with you individually. Josef is bright red and does not maintain eye contact. Knowing what you know about Josef, respond to the following:
For this essay, you will select one of the sources you have found through your preliminary research about your research topic.
