Ethical dilemma 7 to 10 pages of content

Needs to be 7 to 10 pages with 8 to 10 supporting in text citations and 8 to 10 references.  I did the abstract and there needs to be an intro page and all of the questions have to be answered. Need supporting evidence for and against.  The scenario I am using is below as well

The Ethical Dilemma Paper (due at the end of Unit 7) should focus on a real-life example from your own work. This should be a true ethical dilemma for you –not a simple black & white decision, not a decision that your client or a colleague has to make, and not something prescribed by your supervisor or agency.

An ethical dilemma is where you are making a decision about your own course of action, in a situation of great moral/ethical ambiguity, often including unavoidable conflicts between important values.

One of the most important aspects of the assignment is to make sure that the problem that you come up with is actually a true ethical dilemma.  Many students come up with examples that are ethical problems, but not ethical dilemmas.  One of the keys to recognizing whether or not a problem is truly an ethical dilemma has to do with the level of moral ambiguity.  Ethical dilemmas are high in moral ambiguity.  Let me point you to two sections in the text that may be of some help.  On pages 59-60, Linzer discusses the concept of “moral traces”.  He states: “The concept ‘moral traces’ refers to the consequences of having chosen one path, as opposed to the other path in an ethical dilemma.  Since both choices are ethical, the decision to act on one creates the feeling of having violated the other.  There is no winner in ethical decision making” (p. 60 italics added).  One of the observations that Dr. Linzer made in his lectures was that in a true ethical dilemma you never know whether or not you made the “right” decision because both arguments are compelling and you will never know the outcome of the option that you did not choose and you will always wonder if you make the right decision.  That is the “moral trace”.

The second section that you should read is on pages 204 to 207.  Linzer notes: “In circumstances pervaded by ethical ambiguity, the key is to acknowledge the complexity of the issues and the pull of contradictory moral imperatives” (p. 205).  Read that section and if you want to be sure that your scenario is a true ethical dilemma you can check with me.  I don’t want you to spend a lot of time developing and writing the paper only for me to tell you that it is not an ethical dilemma.  It is much easier if you have any doubts to contact me directly and describe the scenario.  And remember, in an ethical dilemma it is you and not the client who has to make the decision.

 When writing your paper, please follow this outline:

1.  Briefly describe your agency’s services and setting.

2.  Present a conflict situation from your own human service work that involves any number of parties, including yourself (you must be a part of the conflict/dilemma), the client, the family, the agency, the board, the funding agency, etc.  Summarize the conflict in one paragraph.

3.  Clearly state the ethical dilemma.  Discuss what makes this an ethical dilemma.  It would be excellent if you can identify the values that are in conflict (For more on this please see the mini-lecture on Beauchamp and Childress). Analyze the conflict from the value perspective of each of the parties.  (You could use Levy’s classification of values to do this.)

4.  Offer your resolution of this dilemma and the reasoning behind your decision.  Your decision should be theoretically justified.  (You cannot simply say that I decided to do this based on my own personal values.) Be sure to substantiate your rationale with the relevant literature.

Abstract

Throughout the career of any individual working in the human services field they are bound to be confronted with some type of ethical dilemma.  An ethical dilemma can be defined as any situation that presents choices and behaviors considered disagreeable to the decision maker based on the potential negative consequences.  Because there are unwanted consequences no matter what choice is made, it makes difficult the decision maker to make a clear cut decision of what is the right or wrong course of action.  The following will be a presentation of such a dilemma. A discussion will be made as to what makes this scenario an ethical dilemma, along with analyzing of the dilemma, resolution and reasoning behind the final decision to be made.   

The agency that I worked for provided services for behaviorally challenged children and served families and children who have found themselves in crisis due to substance abuse, mental health issues or other debilitating issues (Holy Family Institute, 2014). The children in this program were generally housed with this agency under the direction of Children Protective Services and/or Juvenile Justice.  This program also provided family programs to assist those families that were having difficulties with neglect, poverty and abuse.   Direct care and oversight was given to these children 24 hours 7 days a week while residing at the facility.  Many of these children attended school on the facilities main campus however many were afforded the privileged of attending school off facility grounds in their own school districts. 

Scenerio:  I am employed at an adolescent facility.  I have been assigned the girls unit.  Upon their return from school the girls are sitting in the main room discussing their day at school.  One of he girls discloses to the other girls that she is attracted to one of the clients on the boys unit.  I am concerned of her interest in this particular boy because he is diagnosed with HIV.  I pull the girl into the office to discuss the relationship she has with this particular boy.  She discloses to me that they were in fact sexually active and she has on occasion had sexual intercourse with him without condoms.  My concern is that this young girl may have been unknowingly infected with HIV.  Because of HIPPA laws and the confidentiality I am unable to disclose to the client that she may have been infected.  Later I conduct a meeting with the male client.  He reminds me that confidentiality forbids me from disclosing his medical condition.  My dilemma is whether or not I disclose to the girl and her parents that she may have been exposed to HIV.

The Hybrid Model Application, psychology homework help

The Hybrid Model Application

You are introduced to the Hybrid Model of Crisis Intervention in Chapter 3 of your James and Gilliland text as an applied model, of which the first three steps are widely recognized as Psychological First Aid (James & Gilliland, 2013).

For this discussion, please read the Case Study below. Consider that you are a crisis counselor at a local agency and Rita has come to a drop-in counseling session with you to talk about her concerns. How would the Hybrid Crisis Intervention Model be useful in thinking about Rita’s presenting issues and the ways in which you would work with her during the first session? In your discussion post, describe how you would use this model in working with Rita and give some specific examples to illustrate your ideas.

CASE STUDY: Rita is a 35-year-old African American businesswoman, who lives with her Latina partner, Aresha. She is a graduate of high school and a post-high school vocational-technical institute. She holds a certificate in auto mechanics. She has never been to a counselor before. She has come to you at the suggestion of a close friend who is a school counselor. Rita owns and operates an automobile tune-up and service shop. She employs and supervises a crew of mechanics, tune-up specialists, and helpers. She works very hard and keeps long hours but maintains some flexibility by employing a manager. Rita’s partner Aresha is a college-educated accountant. They have two adopted children: a daughter who is 13, and a son who is 8. The family rarely attends church, and they do not consider themselves religious, but they are church members. Their close friends are neither from their church nor from their work. Rita’s problem is complex. She constantly feels depressed and unfulfilled.

She craves attention but has difficulty getting it in appropriate ways. For diversion, she participates in a dance group that practices three nights a week and performs on many Friday and Saturday evenings. Rita, Aresha, and their children spend most Sundays at their lake cottage, which is an hour-long drive from their home. Their circle of friends is mainly their neighbors at the lake.

Rita’s relationship with Aresha has been going downhill for several years. She has become sexually involved with Sam, a wealthy wholesaler of used automobiles. She met him through a business deal whereby she contracted to do the tune-up and service work on a large number of cars for Sam’s company. Sam’s contracts enable Rita’s business to be very successful. Rita states that the “chemistry” between her and Sam is unique and electrifying. She says she and Sam are “head over heels in love with each other.” While she still lives with Aresha, she no longer feels any love for her.

According to Rita, Sam is unhappily married, and Sam and his current wife have two small children. Rita states that she and Sam want to get married, but she does not want to subject her two children to a breakup right now. Sam fears his wife will “take him to the cleaners” if he leaves her for Rita right now. Lately, Sam has been providing Rita with expensive automobiles, clothing, jewelry, and trips out of town. Also, Sam has been greatly overpaying Rita’s service contracts, making her business flourish. Aresha does not know the details of Rita’s business dealings with Sam, but she is puzzled, jealous, frustrated, impulsive, and violent. Aresha used to slap Rita occasionally. Recently however, she has become more frustrated, impulsive, and violent. Aresha has beaten Rita several times in recent months. Last night she beat her worse than ever. Rita has no broken bones, but she has several bruises on her body, legs, and arms. The bruises do not show as long as she wears pantsuits.

Rita has told her problems only to her school counselor friend. She fears that her boyfriend would kill her partner if he found out about the beatings. Rita is frustrated because she cannot participate with the dance group until her bruises go away. Rita is feeling very guilty and depressed. She is not particularly suicidal, however. She is feeling a great deal of anger and hatred toward Aresha, and she suffers from very low self-esteem.

She is feeling stress and pressure from her children, from Aresha, and even from Sam, who wants to spend more and more time with her. Recently, Rita and Sam have been taking more and more risks in their meetings. Rita’s depression is getting to the point where she does not care. She has come to you in a state of lethargy-almost in a state of emotional immobility. Rita has decided to share her entire story with you because she feels she is at her wit’s end, and she would not dare talk with her minister, her physician, or other acquaintances. You and Rita have never met but she feels this is the best approach, even though she is uncomfortable sharing all of this with a stranger.

UDL Lesson Plan

Subject: English

Grade: First Grade

Common Core State Standard(s):Common Core State Standards

·Use a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to compose informative/explanatory texts in which they name what they are writing about and supply some information about the topic.

·With guidance and support from adults, explore a variety of digital tools to produce and publish writing, including in collaboration with peers.

·Confirm understanding of a text read aloud or information presented orally or through other media by asking and answering questions about key details and requesting clarification if something is not understood.

·Add drawings or other visual displays to descriptions as desired to provide additional detail.

Objective (*Three components are observable verb, learning outcome, and measurement. *Aligned to state standard and evidence of mastery):

·Students will learn comperhension by recalling details.

·Will correctly define 9/10 vocabulary words by writing the definition of each.

  • Following along, reading, and summarizing simple stories with pictures

Teaching Procedures (to include introduction of the lesson, and step-by-step procedures for the activites to promote student inquiry and checking for students’ understanding over the course of the activites)

Gather the Corduroy books that I plan to use for the lesson (A Pocket for Corduroy by Don Freeman)along with a stuffed bear to use when students are ready to begin writing and piecing their own adventure stories together. This particular lesson will focus on the book, A Pocket forCorduroy. The students will attentively listen to the story and will be asked to create their own stories electronically. Corduroy will allow the students to gain a personal connection by having close interactions with a stuffed bear and develop their own adventures with Corduroy. I will alsoprovide envelopes for children to use as pockets. Tell them to draw a picture of something to place in their pocket. On the outside of the envelope, children write clues about what is inside. The rest of the class reads the clues and tries to guess what the pocket contains.

UDL Technology Integration (describe one UDL component and explain how it will be integrated into the lesson):

In this particular lesson there is a flexibility and openness that is available to allow the students to demonstrate their knowledge and skills of the content. There are not any strict guidelines for how the student presents their electronic adventure, based on the Corduroy story. 

The assignment is organized in multiple points for choice of presentation:

·Free choice of resource materials,

·Free choice of access (text, digital, audio),

·Free choice of response style.

Instructional Technology (describe one instructional technology device and explain how it will have class-wide incorporation into the lesson)

I would also implement AAC devices. These devices will be particularly geared towards students who struggle with hearing or some type of communication loose. The AAC devices will support the students in communicating themselves, and since one of the assisgnments require the students to develop an electronic picture this would be a great way to help them. The AAC device will be used in the form of a picture board, so all the students will be able to participate in the activities and properly get their point across while doing it. 

For this activity, I would like to implement a “Smart Board.” The smart board would be beneficial across the board. Everyone in the classroom would benefit from this device that allows students and teachers to be interactive. The board will allow the students to give unqiue presentations that would ultimatly keep others interested. 

Formative Assessment (Describe the closure of the lesson and the final assessment used to provide evidence that students have met the learning objectives. Be sure to provide choice related to interest and multiple, flexible means for completion that support learning preferences. Include an explicit description of the criteria for quality work):

I think classroom discussions are a great way to observe what the students may or may not know. It’s also a great way for everyone to be involved and bounce ideas off of one another. This lesson calls for open-ended questions that will challenge the students thinking process. The ultimate goal is to help increase the student’s critical thinking skills. The student’s responses will be closely examined, while taking anecdotal notes.

Teacher Self-Assessment (Even lessons that fail to produce the intended results are an excellent opportunity for reflection, adjustment, and growth. What problems do you anticipate with the lesson?  What did you learn about instructional technology and UDL from creating this unit? What would you change about the lesson based on its impact on student outcomes?)

The problems that I anticipate with this lesson are students having a difficult time grasping on to the concept of developing their own adventures using technology. Although, technology is widely used and advancing I feel like many students will have a difficult time getting started. The questions I would ask myself are, “How can I get them to understand their story is different from the story we have read?” “What things could I do to help my students comprehend the lesson? Is there a better way that this lesson could’ve been presented? How? 

Resources (you may list and describe any resources that will be used over the course of the lesson)
