the long-term challenges

Experiences of schizophrenia are not homogeneous; there is wide variety in onset, course of illness, and combinations of symptoms. Social workers need to be able to understand the different manifestations and pathways of the illness to plan interventions. Social work services play a key role in stabilizing crises, supporting family coping, and influencing overall quality of life and outcomes of individuals with schizophrenia. In this Assignment, you practice applying this necessary individualization.

To prepare: In the Learning Resources, focus on the associated features, development, and course of the illnesses in the schizophrenia spectrum. Also focus on descriptions of the disorder and the way it develops for different individuals.

Choose two articles from the list in the Learning Resources that apply to treatment support and interventions for the schizophrenia spectrum and other psychotic disorders chapter in the DSM 5. Choose either Saks or McGough to focus on for this assignment.

Submit a 3- to 4-page paper, supported by at least 4 scholarly resources (not including DSM-5), in which you address the following:

  1. Describe Saks’s or McGough’s experiences with schizophrenia. Identify onset, associated features (specifically referencing the positive and negative symptoms), development, and course. 
  2. Explain how you would use the Clinician Rated Dimensions of Psychosis Symptom Severity measure and the WHODAS to help confirm your diagnosis.
  3. Explain how you would plan treatment and individualize it for Saks or McGough. Support your response with references to scholarly resources. In your explanation, consider the following questions:
  4. What are the long-term challenges for someone living with the illness?
  5. What social, family, vocational, and medical supports are needed for long-term stabilization?
  6. Briefly explain how race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, religion, or other identity characteristics may influence an individual’s experience with schizophrenia.

a repeated measure

Review the SPSS output file that reports the results of the related samples t-test to compare the number of U.S. states where each brand was sold in 2008 with the number of U.S. states where those same brands were sold in 2012. For each brand, there is one value for the number of states in 2008 and another value for the number of states in 2012, making this a repeated measure. Answer the following questions based on your observations of the SPSS output file:

  1. What was the mean number of U.S. states in which all of the beer brands were sold in 2008?
  2. What was the mean number of U.S. states in which all of the beer brands were sold in 2012?
  3. Was there a significant difference in the number of states in which these beer brands were sold in 2008 versus 2012? Report the results of the t-test as follows: t(df value) = ___, and p-value.

Zachary post

 

Billie Eilish has been singing from a young age.  When she reached the age of thirteen, she sang “Ocean Eyes,” a song written by her brother, Finneas, and this started her career as a professional vocalist (CBS News, 2020).  The song, like most of her other music, is one of heartbreak and tragedy.  The first verse is about someone falling in love with someone, specifically looking into his or her eyes and seeing someone for who he or she truly is.  It plays on the idea that the eyes are the windows to the soul.  The second verse has the same theme of a girl obsessing over someone; however, Finneas has made it clear that the pair have split up, or perhaps they were never together to begin with, and their incompatibility has just become apparent to the protagonist of this song (AZ Lyrics, 2016).  She also has a song about running from the police after committing multiple murders and one that is basically a suicide note in musical form, “Listen Before I Go.”

Despite her preference for melancholic music, Billie stated the following in an interview: “Nobody that knows me thinks I’m a dark person” (CBS News, 2020, n.p.).  This is a very interesting concept indeed: despite singing such sad songs constantly, Billie would not describe herself as ‘dark.’  Another interesting takeaway from the interview was when it is stated that Billie experienced “…fame that [she] didn’t want…” last year (CBS News, 2020), which strongly contradicts the stereotype of an attention-seeking celebrity.

The trait perspective explains personality as being composed of traits.  Traits might not always show themselves, but they generally do.  For example, a very agreeable person might hoard food in the aftermath of a war that has had apocalyptic repercussions, despite the fact that agreeable people are helpful and kind in most settings (Cervone & Pervin, 2019).  This perspective can be used to explain several takeaways from Billie’s interview.  First, trait theory involves people having certain levels of each trait.  For example, very few people are 100% agreeable, walking down the street handing money to anyone who walks by while they live homelessly.  There is a generally balance between traits.  With this in mind, Billie states that she is always laughing (CBS News, 2020), making it sound like she is generally a fun-loving person, but perhaps her music reflects a more minor, darker trait that she possesses, a small part of her personality.  Or perhaps the darkness in her music is not a trait at all but is rather a symptom of her depression.  Maybe singing helps Billie to manage her depressive symptoms.  In regards to Billie stating that she did not wish to become famous, elaborating that she hates not being able to go out in public without being swarmed by fans, it sounds like Billie has very low levels of extraversion, resulting in her being timid and reserved (Cervone & Pervin, 2019).

children

Purpose: It is very easy to be around children without noticing fascinating aspects of their behavior. Indeed, it is rare when anyone intently observes a child for a continuous period, looking for behaviors that characterize an individual child or childhood. Conscientious fulfillment of this project will help the observer be a better and more appreciative student of child behavior. If you have children, you may observe your own children.

 

Instructions: You will submit the paper using the criteria below.

1. Write up of project, 2‐4 written pages (typed).
2. Give a general description of child (age, sex, etc.) and the observation situation.
3. Describe behavior or patterns of behaviors that were interesting to you and analyze the significance to child development.
4. Do not just put a chronological list of what the child did during observation period, but do show evidence that you make careful observation.
5. Discuss significance of behaviors for the child and child development in general (use your text and notes). You must cite sources in APA format.
