When these events involve stressors such as sexual assault or combat, it is clear the “traumatic event” criterion for ptsd has been met. 

In designing the diagnostic criteria for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in DSM-5, considerable effort was devoted to wording these criteria so that the diagnosis would apply only to individuals who develop symptoms (e.g., nightmares, intrusive recollections) after experiencing extreme stress or trauma (see Case 4 “DSM-5 Diagnosis”). When these events involve stressors such as sexual assault or combat, it is clear the “traumatic event” criterion for PTSD has been met.  However, for some stressors, this judgement is not straightforward (e.g., running over the beloved family pet with the car or viewing graphic news footage of a brutal war or crime).  Based on the diagnostic criteria listed in the Case 4 “DSM-5 Diagnosis” section, what types of stressful events do you believe quality and do not qualify for the PTSD diagnosis?  Do you think these criteria should be revised to allow persons who suffered less extreme stressors to be given the PTSD diagnosis if they are experiencing all the other symptoms?  What would the ramifications (e.g., legal, insurance) be if the criteria were relaxed to include less severe stressors?
Although it was once assumed that males were much more likely to perpetuate acts of marital violence than females, some research indicates this is the not the case. The rates of such acts are roughly equivalent across sexes when any form of aggression is considered; in some culture, women evidence a higher rate of aggression.  What factors do you believe account for this finding?  What variables do you think most strongly predict acts of domestic violence?  Do you think these risk factors differ for males and females?  Why or why not?
Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) has been used as a legal defense in murder trials (i.e., the person committed the murder under an “alter” personality and was arguably unaware of the crime, therefore not responsible for it). Do you think DID can be a credible and viable defense in some legal cases?  If someone, in fact, had DID at the time they committed a serious crime, should they be held accountable for those actions?  Do you think it is possible for some defendants to convincingly fake the symptoms of DID?

Assignment is comprised of two sections: test your knowledge & let’s discuss. 

Directions:
assignment is comprised of two sections: Test Your Knowledge & Let’s Discuss.  For both sections, respond to all parts of the assigned question numbering answers to match to the corresponding question. Each answer must be at least one paragraph in length demonstrating understanding and application of the required class readings. For the question under Let’s Discuss, in addition to completing all parts of the assigned question (minimum of one paragraph in length)
Test Your Knowledge
1.) Explain what Alfred Adler means by a unified personality and the role inferiority Discuss how employing a safeguarding technique is it related to a person’s style of life. Create an example of a safeguarding technique a child or teen could employ in the classroom. Which safeguarding technique do you suppose may have more challenging consequences?
2.) How is Carl Jung’s collective unconscious a part of personality according to his view? How could a child’s social context positively or negatively affect their personal and collective unconscious as well their archetypes? Create a real-life example including at least one archetype.
3.) How can knowledge of Jung’s personality theory of introversion/extroversion and Adler’s beliefs on birth order and personality inform educators’ instructional practices and their classroom space? Do you feel it could also serve to increase their understanding of student behaviors and improve teacher-student relations in the classroom? Please explain. 
Let’s Discuss
1.) For the two assigned articles that you chose to read (see modules for links to all the articles), clearly share at least two aspects of each article’s findings pertaining to the personality theory the article related to for this week (Jung or Adler). In addition, what did you learn regarding personality theory and the classroom as a result of reading the article? What did you find to be of most interest in reading these articles? Were you surprised by any of the findings? How so?

Persons of color are not.

What is  six tenets of CRT by integrating the six social work core values by arguing  for the say gay bill that was passed in Florida.
Framework to engage a population group in a change episode using  4 identified tasks. talk about Vulnerable population, address each question on task 1 , discuss your position and how it influence responses.                   
Themes of Critical Race Theory
1. Racism is deeply and perpetually embedded in societal institutions, making it very difficult to identify.
Despite the banning of visible signs of discrimination, racial privilege continues. CRT seeks to study and
change the relationship between race, racism, and power, questioning the liberal order of things.
2. Racism has become normalized in societal structures and institutions in which whites are privileged and
persons of color are not. Thus, race and racism serve psychological, social, and material interests, and in
order for change to occur it must benefit majority interests as well as those interests of excluded minorities.
3. Race is socially constructed, having no basis in genetics or biology. Yet, categories of difference have
been created by law to normalize race and underscore white privilege.
4. Symbolism and meaning of racial groups have changed over place and time depending on political,
social, and economic needs.
5. The intersectionality of multiple identities is recognized, and to solely recognize gender, race, class,
sexuality, disability, or any other identity without acknowledging the complexity of their overlap leads to
further marginization.
6. The voices of people of color are unique, must be heard, and are often more effective in assessing the
intended and unintended consequences of public policies and programs
Task 1 includes two sets of activities—developing cultural humility and listening to
different perspectives from population members.
Develop Cultural Humility
Most, if not all, episodes of macro-level change will involve populations that differ on
some dimension from the social work change agent. For this reason, we emphasize listening to members of the target population and gathering a wide variety of theoretical
perspectives and empirical evidence in order to develop an effective planned change intervention. But before a social worker engages in these learning activities, she or he must
attend to interpersonal attitudes regarding diversity and difference

Discussions are scholarly dialogs, so while sharing what you think and not just what published authors wrote is encouraged, only stating opinion isn’t acceptable.

Also, required for each discussion are three (3) replies to at least three different classmates, due by Sunday at 11:59 pm Eastern Time. Discussions are scholarly dialogs, so while sharing what you think and not just what published authors wrote is encouraged, only stating opinion isn’t acceptable. Instead, thoughtfully integrate relevant theory and research you read about this week and strive to make connections between that academic content and your own observations and experiences. Formal citations are not required in the discussion. Your responses to the postings of other students should be relevant and substantive. Reply posts containing just a few sentences or statements of agreement or disagreement only or that stray away from the topic or repeat what another classmate has already said in his or her posts does not demonstrate substantive discussion. Please be certain to post the name of the person you are responding to in each post you make. This is essential for tracking who said what to whom. Please at minimum 100 words per reply

Bonnie received group treatment for her social anxiety.

1. While in treatment, some people with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) are reluctant to give up their worrying and worry behaviors because they believe these features are helpful to them (e.g., Adrian arrived at work 30 minutes early each morning to plan her day and to decrease the likelihood of making mistakes or overlooking important tasks). Do you believe worry can have adaptive qualities?  If so, what are they?  What do you believe are the negative consequences of worry, especially when worry is at the level found in GAD?
2. As in the case of John, men are more likely than women to cope with their panic attacks by using alcohol or other drugs; women are more likely than men to develop extensive agoraphobic avoidance in response to panic attacks. Why do you think this is the case?
3. Bonnie received group treatment for her social anxiety. What are the advantages and disadvantages of group treatment (versus individual treatment) as an intervention for Social Anxiety Disorder?
4. Research has indicated that in some persons, a strict, devoutly religious upbringing was a factor that contributed to the development of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Based on the information provided in the Case 5 section “Case Formulation Using the Integrative Model” in this case, why might this be?  What other social and developmental factors do you think might contribute to the origins of OCD?
