Practice Career Counseling Sessions and Presentation. You will conduct three 50 minute career counseling practice sessions with another 623 student where you are the career counselor. From these three practice sessions, you will select a 3 to 5 minute Zoom video segment to show the class. You may choose to select a segment of recording that highlights something you are struggling with, or you may choose to select a segment of recording that showcases your abilities (choosing the former does not necessarily mean your grade will suffer on this assignment!). Either way, you are expected to use your presentation to seek and absorb feedback from the class about how to improve your career counseling skills. Please check that your Zoom recording has working video and audio by conducting a practice session by yourself before you start with your practice “client”—it is your responsibility to make sure your sessions record and that they are saved to our class Google Drive folder. If a session does not record, you may need to redo it. Also, to prepare for your presentation and optimize your learning in the course, you will need to review all of your Zoom recordings (be mindful of confidentiality when you do this) so that you can avoid technological malfunctions during your presentation. Your grade will be determined by the course instructor’s evaluation of your ability to use basic and advanced counseling skills (attending, empathizing, appropriate use of questions in exploration, et cetera), how appropriately you intervened with your practice “client” as a career counselor-in-training, and your manner of presenting your work and facilitating the informal class discussion which will follow the formal presentation (see Case Presentation Feedback Sheet on Sakai for more details). Your presentation should last no longer than 10 minutes of formal presentation (including showing your tape and talking about your work), and will be followed by another 10 minutes of class discussion. You will post your handout as an attachment under Discussion Forums in the forum “Student Case Presentation Handouts.” Your handout should be no longer than one single-sided page summarizing the most salient details of your work. You should also list 2 to 3 questions you would like the class to help you with—remember, we are doing these sessions as a training tool—use it! This is your opportunity to hear a host of different perspectives about your approach, different techniques, interpersonal processes and dynamics, and so forth. Keep in mind that your “client” will be in class, too, so be sensitive and respectful to your person. Your handout will be graded as well, so be sure to take these guidelines into account.

Understanding family structure and style is essential to patient and family care. Conducting a family interview and needs assessment gathers information to identify strengths, as well as potential barriers to health. This information ultimately helps develop family-centered strategies for support and guidance.
This family health assessment is a two-part assignment. The information you gather in this initial assignment will be utilized for the second assignment in Topic 3.
Develop an interview questionnaire to be used in a family-focused functional assessment. The questionnaire must include three open-ended, family-focused questions to assess functional health patterns for each of the following:
1. Values/Health Perception
9. Role Relationship
Select a family, other than your own, and seek permission from the family to conduct an interview. Utilize the interview questions complied in your interview questionnaire to conduct a family-focused functional assessment. Document the responses as you conduct the interview.
Upon completion of the interview, write a 750-1,000-word paper. Analyze your assessment findings. Submit your questionnaire as an appendix with your assignment.
Include the following in your paper:
1. Describe the family structure. Include individuals and any relevant attributes defining the family composition, race/ethnicity, social class, spirituality, and environment.
2. Summarize the overall health behaviors of the family. Describe the current health of the family.
3. Based on your findings, describe at least two of the functional health pattern strengths noted in the findings. Discuss three areas in which health problems or barriers to health were identified.
4. Describe how family systems theory can be applied to solicit changes in family members that, in turn, initiate positive changes to the overall family functions over time.
Cite at least three peer-reviewed or scholarly sources to complete this assignment. Sources should be published within the last 5 years and appropriate for the assignment criteria.
Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
Deontology vs. Utilitarianism. Present and contrast Kant’s ethical theory and classical Utilitarianism. Your essay must include substantive paragraphs devoted to present the main features of both theories (explain them in your own words; do not paraphrase or quote too much) and contrast their prospects as reasonable, logically consistent, and powerful ethical theories (naturally, your conclusion may be that both theories are deficient in important aspects).
Here are the requirements for the paper:
TOPIC: The paper must cover one of the theorists or schools of theory in the textbook.
Research: Minimum of 8 scholarly articles cited and at least 1 citation must be from one of these journals- Sociological Theory, Contexts, Social Forces or Theory & Society.
All text (including footnotes, references, and endnote) must be doubled spaced.
Text must be in 12-point Times New Roman (Times is also acceptable)
Block quotes may be single-spaced and cannot exceed 15% of your word count.
Margins must be no more than 1.25 inches on all four sides
A separate title page including title of paper, author(s) and institution(s) of author(s) (list vertically if more than one author).
Begin the text of the paper on a separate page headed with the title of the paper
Subject: any topic or concern
6-8 pages (double-spaced; not including the bibliography), yet should not exceed 10 pages (not including the bibliography). The document must contain the following components:
Cover Letter: The proposal should be written for a real organization and as if you are a consultant for that organization. Include a brief cover letter addressed to a real person at that real organization. (You’ll have to do a little bit of secondary research to figure out the name, title and contact information for someone appropriate at the organization.)
Introduction: Summarize the issue or concern that you propose to research. Explain the significance, including what we know and don’t know about the issue from existing research. Make a strong argument why this proposed study deserves approval and support. (You will need and want to cite secondary sources of research; think of this section like a brief and more persuasive version of a literature review.) You may want to define what communication research is, describe the specific worldview you’re bringing to this research project, and/or spell out the basic research question you intend to answer.
Recommended Study: Describe in detail the research strategy you have in mind. Specify the research methods, and provide rationale for why these are the best methods to use. (Be sure to triangulate, meaning that you recommend at least three different methods or repeating one method in three different ways, with three different groups, or at three different times). You do not need to include a timeline or budget, but if there is a logical sequence to the methods, then make clear which research method you’d tackle first, which one second, and so on.
Sampling Method and Measurement: In this section, explain and defend the sampling method you propose. You should also explain how you will obtain or develop the sampling frame. In addition, specify the measures you will use when conducting research, and describe how results will be reported.
Concerns and Other Considerations: Toward the end of the proposal, briefly explain any issues that might arise with this proposed research study, including considerations when getting close to research participants. Make clear whether you can ensure participants confidentiality or anonymity. (Your job in this section isn’t to scare the organization, but rather to put the organization at ease.) Explain how you will resolve any challenges or rationalize why the concerns aren’t significant enough to halt the study.
Closing: Conclude the proposal by reiterating the significance of the study and asking for the organization’s support.
Bibliography: Include a list of at least six (6) secondary research sources that have helped inform your proposal. Use APA style for citations.
