intro to clinical psyc paper

Your neighbor tells you that her nine-year-old son has been having behavior and academic problems in school. “His teacher recommended taking him to the pediatrician to get a prescription for Ritalin,” she said.

In a well-thought-out paper integrating information from the text and the module readings, make an argument for why your neighbor should first have her son evaluated by a clinical psychologist.

Discuss the types of assessment tools the psychologist might use in his or her evaluation and how these tools would help in guiding diagnosis and treatment. Make sure to use appropriate sources of information and reference them properly, in American Psychological Association (APA) style.

This paper should be 3–4 pages and formatted in APA style.

conversation starter and humanities traditions

Conversation Starter

Review the following story.

“A man went on a walk one day along the edge of a cliff as he often did. This day, however, a strong wind came and blew him over the edge. Before falling to his death, he managed to grab a shrub. There he dangled, too weak to climb back up, his fate certain. Then he spied a beautiful flower nearby. It was like nothing he had ever seen before. The image of this flower seized him: its brilliant blossom, its shape and size, its scent, its intricate design. For the few moments he had left, he caught a vision of absolute beauty. His grasp weakened, and he fell to his death.” (Asian Folktale.)

For your initial post, reflect on the significance of the story by answering the following questions:

  • How does this story relate to the study of the humanities?
  • Is this story a parable of life generally? If so, what is its lesson?

Humanities Traditions

The introduction to this unit identifies several disciplines traditionally included among the humanities. We will look at each of them in greater detail as the course continues, and in your final project you will have the chance to reflect on the role they play in your own life.

Here, at the outset of our studies together, which of the humanities is most interesting for you? That is, which of these modes of expression seem to you most likely to provide us with insight into the most significant aspects of human experience?

write a research essay 1

APA format

Essay format 1100 words

Lester Scholl’s administrative assistant calls you on Monday afternoon to set up a conference call between you and the chairman tomorrow morning to discuss the board’s reaction to your list and to discuss your next task. You call the number she gave you, and Lester joins the call shortly after.

“I’m pleased with your work,” he says. The board was impressed with your list of factors. Your ranking made sense because your explanations were well-written. I suspect they read everything you sent because it was concise and clear. Good job.”

“Thanks,” you say, and you feel relieved that your first assignment was well-received.

“Your list provided the basis for a good conversation about the manufacturing operations,” he says. “We want to know more about the economy of both countries to further inform our decision-making process.”

“That makes sense,” you say. “The United States and South Korea hold many distinct economic factors that may affect AutoEdge’s long-term financial performance.”

“Right,” he says. “Your research on the two economies will give the board enough information so we can advise the new, incoming CEO.”

“What should my research include?” you ask.

ASSIGNMENT

“In your research, you must take into consideration several macroeconomic factors,” he says. “We want to see information about the gross domestic product (GDP), unemployment, interest rates, and inflation for both the United States and South Korea. Make sure your research is current; that is, no more than 6 months old.”

portfolio assignment 8 4 8 5

THERE ARE TWO PARTS TO THIS ASSIGNMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Portfolio Assignment 8.4: “William Wilson” Opinion Essay

“William Wilson” is a frightening tale of a school boy slowly and steadily falling into insanity while being haunted by his doppelgänger. Yet, this is just one small view of a much larger picture that Edgar Allan Poe is trying to reveal to the reader. You will be writing a short one-page essay on the following prompt:

What statement is Poe making in “William Wilson” about human nature and society in general? Explain how events in the story prove and support your opinion.

Your essay needs to be one page typed. It will be turned in with portfolio 2.



PORTFOLIO ASSIGNMENT 8.5

Despite how you might feel about Poe’s work yourself there is no denying the brilliance of his writing. His ability to weave a tale which toys with our imaginations is nearly unsurpassed. Think back on his stories which you’ve read and see if you can remember these hallmarks of his style. In fact, these are generally good traits for any narrative.

  • An opening which introduces the audience to some or all of these elements: narrator, setting, the problem, characters. (Think about the opening of “William Wilson”—which of these were introduced?)
  • Notice how he uses reflection to get the reader inside the head of the narrator.
  • Poe varies the pacing of his stories, often using dialogue to slow time down and insert the reader into the story.
  • Description which does not detract from the story. Good detail and sensory description (description using the five senses) is key to a story but if it is done with a heavy hand it can ruin the story.
  • Poe’s conclusions, while often surprising, still feel as if they flow naturally from the previous scenes and details of the story.

Instead of relying upon one specific literary style or trick, Poe uses these and other techniques in combinations to draw the reader deeper into the story. Now that you’ve recognized these techniques and seen them used by a master, you get to implement them yourself.

Poe uses his excellent prose and narrative style to write fictional tales of suspense. You will do the same. I will walk you through the process of pre-writing then leave you to write your story. The first thing you’ve got to determine is what kind of scary or suspenseful story are you going to write. Will it be a supernatural thriller, or a suspenseful murder mystery, will there be ghosts, or an insane asylum?
