Mental Wellness Throughout the Life Span

For the second assignment, reflect on what mental wellness can look like throughout your life cycle. Each stage of our life cycle looks different, and therefore our mental wellness approach will need to evolve with it. The first step, which will happen for some of you sooner than others, will involve graduation from college. Picture that scenario, then moving to a new city, starting a career, finding a new group of friends, dating someone new, and adapting to life as a working member of society.
Remember, even happy events that cause a change in your life can be stressful.

Answers must be paraphrased (restated in your own words with no quoting permitted), properly APA format source credited – including within-answer citations and a list of references included at the end of each answer – and at least 600 words each, not counting source citations and references. Answers should be succinct, thorough, articulated in well-organized paragraphs (lists, sentence fragments and bulleted items are not permitted), and more substantive than just definitions of terms, procedures, or issues.
To complete this exam, save a copy of the attached file on your hard drive, construct your answers below each question on a separate page per question, attach a cover page to the front and a reference list to the end (references must also be placed at the end of each question for which they were used) and upload it under the Midterm Exam assignment tab.
Questions:
1. Psychological abnormality may include concerns with concepts such as deviance, distress, dysfunction, and danger. First, briefly explain what each term means from your perspective in the context of psychopathology. Then, for each term, provide a specific example of when it (e.g., distress) would be considered “normal” and, separately, an example of when it would be considered “abnormal.” Finally, explain why it is important to understand this distinction.
2. Your nephew is taking Intro to Psych as a high school senior and is confused about which of the theoretical models is “best” at explaining abnormality. Describe for him, in no more than 100 words per model and using terms he (as a layperson) can understand, at least three models of abnormality. Then, briefly answer his question – which model do you think is best and why? Be sure to support your answer with reference material.
3. Answer both parts of this question. Imagine you are an intake clinician at a community mental health clinic:
a. If you had 30 minutes to conduct a preliminary clinical interview, what information would you be sure to try to get, and why? Be sure to support your answer using the reading materials in the course.
b. You’ve been tasked to give a lecture to new clients explaining the format and major characteristics of DSM-5. What are the main points you want to be sure to cover
4. For EACH of the following disorders, characterize three specific factors you believe are most important for a basic understanding of them. Be sure to justify your choices using only about 100-150 words for each:
1. GeneralizedAnxietyDisorder
2. PanicDisorder
3. ObsessiveCompulsiveDisorder 4. Post-TraumaticStressDisorder 5. SomaticSymptomDisorder
6. MajorDepressiveDisorder
7. BipolarDisorde
5. Discuss the variables found in the research that have been found to correlate with an increased risk for suicidal ideation, attempts and completion. What types of psychopathology have been associated with an increased risk for suicide? Why might that be the case?

Week 1 Discussion: Is it Right to be a Relativist?

No unread replies.11 reply.
Required Resources
Read/review the following resources for this activity:

  • Textbook: Chapter 1, 2
  • Lesson
  • Minimum of 1 scholarly source (in addition to the textbook)

Initial Post Instructions
The study of ethics and philosophy is one that brings many different kinds of “thinkers” together. One person’s philosophy on ethics is another person’s philosophy on evil. We will be working this term on constructing personal ethical bases and understanding how ethical codes (both personal and professional) are created and followed.
To start us thinking about the different areas of philosophy and ethics, and how we fit into the different molds or world views, let’s imagine the following scenario:
It is 2019. The federal law banning female circumcision is still under appeal in the courts. You are a nurse assisting a plastic surgeon at a local hospital. The plastic surgeon comes from a country where they practice “female circumcision”. This practice is also sometimes called “female genital mutilation”.
Fire Eyes: Female Circumcision, Written by Soraya Mire, Directed by Soraya Mire, Ethnographer Soraya Mire, Narrated by Carol Christiansen (New York, NY: Filmakers Library, 1995), 57 minutes
You are not a member of the doctor’s culture, but reside in a state where this practice is still legal. The plastic surgeon has agreed to perform this practice on a young girl, the daughter of a friend of the surgeon. The friend has authorized the procedure. The girl only knows this is a custom. You did not know that today you would be asked to assist in this procedure. You can refuse to participate (your job may be on the line in the future due to that decision). Or, you can assist the surgeon. What ought you to do? We now want to examine the ethical issues involved. To do this, let’s look at the role of relativism, moral truths, and other issues.
Initial Post Instructions
For the initial post, address the following questions:

  • What would a subjective moral relativist say about what this doctor is doing? Do you agree with the subjective moral relativist? Why or why not?
  • Examine what a cultural moral relativist would say here. Do you agree with the cultural relativist? Why or why not?
  • Name and evaluate general criticisms of cultural relativism as being the wrong moral approach.
  • Is there an objective moral truth about any of the possible actions by the nurse and/or doctor in this case? Why or why not?

 Cultural Relativism and Moral Action
Required Resources
Read/review the following resources for this activity:

  • Textbook: Chapter 1, 2
  • Lesson
  • Minimum of 2 scholarly sources in addition to the textbook

Instructions
For this assignment propose a scenario where you or someone you know are confronted with a moral dilemma relating to cultural diversity and multiculturalism. It cannot be the same as what was covered in the week one discussion.
Cultural diversity refers to religious, sexual, racial, and other forms of social difference. A moral dilemma is a situation in which one must make a decision between two or more options such that the options involve seemingly ethical and/or unethical conduct. Address the following questions:

  • What was the situation? What did the dilemma involve?
  • What would a subjective moral relativist say is the right approach to the dilemma? Why would that kind of relativist say that?
  • What would a cultural relativist say is the right approach to the dilemma? Why would that kind of relativist say that? Is that approach correct?
  • What did you the person confronting the dilemma decide to do? What moral justification did they give? Is that approach morally correct?
  • Was there an objective moral truth (the objectively right thing to do) in this situation? Why or why not?

Remember, the dilemma should be detailed with description and dialogue. Regard the questions as requirements. This is an essay, so rather than simply providing a list of brief answers to questions, provide an in-depth reflection regarding a difficult ethical situation..
Cite the textbook and incorporate outside sources, including citations.
