regular practice for managing psychological pain

 

For some adolescents, experiencing physical pain becomes a regular practice for managing psychological pain. Whether used as a coping mechanism, a way to express anger, or to deal with intense emotional pain, self-harming is often a call for help.

In school settings, faculty and staff are charged with protecting students, but how can they protect those students who choose to harm themselves? The importance of educators understanding the circumstances, causes, and effects of self-harming behavior so they can respond quickly and effectively cannot be overstated. For this Assignment, consider your role as a social worker and think about how you would raise awareness for educators to respond to this increasing maladaptive coping mechanism.

By Day 7

Submit a 5- to 6-slide PowerPoint presentation explaining the indicators of self-harm, appropriate interventions, and follow-up steps for educators needing to respond to those who self-harm.

PowerPoint slides should present bulleted text on the slides with a full transcript of the presentation in the notes section.

impact of school start time on the sleep patterns of adolescents

Researchers Owens, Belon, & Moss (2010) wanted to investigate the impact of school start time on the sleep patterns of adolescents. They studied teenagers who were enrolled in an American high school, both before (fall semester) and after (spring semester) the entire school had decided to shift its start time from 8:00 am to 8:30 am. Students completed a survey asking what time they went to bed the night before, how many hours of sleep they’d gotten, and their daytime sleepiness and level of depressed mood. The researchers found that after the 8:30 start time was implemented, students reported getting 45 minutes more sleep each night, and the percentage of students who reported more than 8 hours per night jumped from 16.4% to 54.7%. In addition, students’ level of daytime sleepiness and depressed mood decreased after the 8:30 start time began.

  1. Is this study a nonequivalent control group design, a nonequivalent control group pretest/posttest design, an interrupted time-series design, or a nonequivalent control group interrupted time-series design?
  2. Graph the results of the study, according to the results in the description. (There are multiple dependent variables; choose only one to graph).
  3. What causal statement might the researchers be trying to make, if any? Is it appropriate? Use the results and design to interrogate the study’s internal validity
  4. If you notice any internal validity flaws, can you redesign the study to remove the flaw?
  5. Ask one question to address construct validity and one to address external validit

cultural identities and how the social environment impacts these identities

Anti-oppressive social work means critically reflecting on your own cultural identities and how the social environment impacts these identities. Acknowledging power and privilege can be uncomfortable; however, with values of multiculturalism and social justice, social workers are committed to engaging in their own personal work and addressing social barriers clients may experience. Social workers view clients from a strengths-based perspective utilizing client strengths to support their goals, rather than pathologizing clients from the lens of the dominant culture.

For the past six weeks, you have learned about the social construction of social identities, structural inequality based on dominant and non-dominant groups, and oppressions based on sex, class, and race. While readings have continuously pointed out white privilege as the dominant group privilege, you also know that privilege is not equally distributed in groups. Intersecting identities creates unique experiences for clients. For this assignment, you draw from what you have been learning during the first part of this course and discuss strategies for anti-oppressive social work practice.

By Day 7

Submit a 2- to 3-page APA formatted paper in which you:

  • Explain the potential impact of white privilege on clients from both dominant and minority groups (consider impact of both positive and negative stereotypes).
  • Explain how intersecting identities might impact an individual’s experience (for example, race/ethnicity and gender, race/ethnicity and class, race/ethnicity and ability, race/ethnicity and sexual orientation, race/ethnicity and class).
  • Providing specific examples, explain how a social worker might utilize cultural strengths when working with clients.
  • Describe 2-3 social work skills and how a social worker might use them to engage in anti-oppressive work.
  • Support ideas in paper with at least 2-3 course resources (please reference specific chapters, not the entire textbook) and at least one additional peer-reviewed article from the Walden library (not assigned in this course) to support your ideas.
