What is the intended “take away”?

Scientific progress is based on finding answers to questions. While the answers to many of these questions may seem intuitive—without evidence—they may in fact be false. It is therefore important for you not to reach a conclusion when there is no evidence to support that conclusion. For this assignment, you will develop a brochure for families composed of national, ethnic, racial, religious, or sexual minorities who may or may not be economically disadvantaged. The purpose of the brochure is to inform them of specific sources of stress that they might experience. For example, in their article, Hicken, Lee, Morenoff, House, and Williams (2014) review race-based social stressors such as perceived discrimination and the stress of wanting to outperform negative expectations of one’s racial/ethnic group.

You will need to clearly select a specific group; in your brochure, you will need to define that group. Next, you must discuss both the stresses they might experience and the sources of those stressors. You can then provide them with some coping strategies to use including mindfulness. Please remember that you are expected to document all your statements even though a conclusion might seem intuitive.

Length: 6 columns and a 2-page brochure

 

Creating a Brochure – The Basics

There are several software programs, including Microsoft Publisher, that are designed to create a variety of different written materials. However, you can easily create your own using Microsoft Word.

Depending on the version of Word that you may have, you can open a template and simply cut and paste your information into a template; or you can search the Internet for a free template that meets your needs.

You can use Word to create a simple brochure by completing the following steps:

Open a new file in Word. Then, name it and save it as you would any other assignment.

Go to Page Layout>Margins>Narrow (1/2 inch).

Write your content or text. and then insert your graphics.

Go to Page Layout>Orientation>Landscape. Change to Landscape (11 x 8 ½).

Highlight the text.

With text highlighted, go to Page Layout>Columns>Three. Click and save.

Now, your file is a draft brochure that you can review, revise, and proofread before you submit it to your instructor for feedback.

 

Creating an Effective Brochure – Simple Tips

Effective brochures present information that is organized, informative, supported by valid research, and easy to understand. You can prepare an effective brochure by using the following tips:

Use short, yet compelling words, and brief sentences. Keep your audience in mind.

Use quotes sparingly. As a rule, quotes have value for emphasis if you cannot rephrase the information any better in your own words.

Write your content using the active voice. (Active voice: “Families can provide support to children struggling with homework by finding a great tutor.” Passive voice: “Support can be provided by the family to children struggling with homework by find a great tutor.”)

Be positive. “Families should” instead of, “Families should not.”

 

Knowing Your Targeted Readers

Understand your readers (ages, professions, levels of education, demographics, etc.) to ensure the success of your presentation.

Tailor your information to meet your readers’ interests and expertise.

Make the information relevant and appealing to your readers.

Planning Your Brochure Content

As you prepare your brochure content, consider the following questions:

What can your readers learn from this brochure information? What is the intended “take away”?

What do you want your readers to do with the information that they have learned?

Should they now think and/or behave differently because of your brochure?

What do you want them to remember from your brochure?

Use a simple font with a point-size of no less than 12-point (footnotes should be no smaller than 9 point).

Be consistent. Use the same font throughout your brochure.

Use color, underlining, and italics sparingly and for emphasis only.

Use white space effectively. If text is squeezed together, it is difficult to read. Take time to edit your information so that your key concepts are clearly and simply presented.

Use graphics that are relevant to your brochure’s overall content.

Be sure the graphics complement your content, instead of overwhelming it and creating distractions.

Ensure your graphics are tasteful, inclusive, and appropriate for your readers.

Post an explanation of the types of descriptive and/or inferential statistics you might use to analyze the data gathered

In order to make decisions about the value of any research study for practice, it is important to understand the general processes involved in analyzing research data. By now, you have examined enough research studies to be aware that there are some common ways that data are reported and summarized in research studies. For example, the sample is often described by numbers of participants and by certain characteristics of those participants that help us determine how representative the sample is of a population. The information about the sample is commonly reported in tables and graphs, making use of frequency distributions, measures of central tendency, and dispersion. Information about the variables (or concepts) of interest when quantified are also reported in similar manner.

Although the actual data analysis takes place after data have been collected, from the initial planning of a research study, the researcher needs to have an awareness of the types of questions that can be answered by particular data analysis techniques.

For this Discussion, review the case study entitled “Social Work Research: Measuring Group Success.” Consider the data analysis described in that case. Recall the information presented in the earlier chapters of your text about formulating research questions to inform a hypotheses or open-ended exploration of an issue.

By Day 3

Post an explanation of the types of descriptive and/or inferential statistics you might use to analyze the data gathered in the case study. Also explain how the statistics you identify can guide you in evaluating the applicability of the study’s findings for your own practice as a social worker. Please use the resources to support your answer.

How does this differential approach to infant sleep ultimately impact children’s social and emotional development?

Assignment: Cultural Influences on Infant Development

In your Discussion Spark this week, you began to consider how culture impacts infants’ social and emotional development. This is not an easy question with easy answers. In fact, the more you learn about factors that influence development, the more you may realize that development is incredibly complex! The influence of culture on development is no exception.

One specific cultural difference that emerges with respect to caring for infants in the first year is sleeping arrangements. In some cultures, such as the United States, putting together a nursery is a large part of the preparation that occurs as a couple awaits the arrival of a new baby. In a culture that values independence, having an infant sleep independently in his or her own room is highly valued. However, other cultures have a preference for parent-infant sleeping. In fact, over 90% of the world co-sleeps with their infants. (The United States is an exception to the norm!) How does this differential approach to infant sleep ultimately impact children’s social and emotional development? Research has shown that, despite the worry of co-sleeping critiques, children who co-sleep with their parents are not at a disadvantage either social or emotionally and are not overly dependent on their parents (Okami, Weismer, & Olmstead, 2002).

In your Assignment this week, you take a cross-cultural view of parenting in the first year. By watching the documentary Babies, you see the varied approaches that parents in the United States, Japan, Mongolia, and Namibia take to raising their infants. You view this documentary through the lens of what you have learned this week in the readings about social and emotional development in the first year and see the varied ways parents can differentially promote infant development.

To Prepare:

  • Watch the documentary Babies, focusing specifically on two of the four babies for this Assignment.
  • Consider each of your two selected babies’ social and emotional development and how it may be influenced by cultural practices or beliefs.

The Assignment (3–4 pages):

Write a paper in which you do the following:

  • Analyze the social and emotional development of your two selected infants in their cultures. How do their various cultural contexts shape the way their social and emotional development unfolds in the first year? In your paper, give specific examples that you noticed in the documentary. Interpret your observations through the Learning Resources or other scholarly resources.

Compare and contrast the roles of the medical director and the DON. Select the role which has the overall greater impact on patient care. Provide a rationale for your response.

Per the text, when patients cannot receive needed medical care, nursing services, or rehabilitation therapies in a community-based setting, they are typically admitted to a long-term care facility, where medical care is traditionally delivered by physicians and / or practitioners with advanced qualifications. All nursing services in long-term care facilities are delivered by a nursing staff which is headed by a Director of Nursing (DON). Compare and contrast the roles of the medical director and the DON. Select the role which has the overall greater impact on patient care. Provide a rationale for your response.Imagine that you are responsible for staffing a long-term care facility with sixty (60) full-time residents. Propose your strategy of selecting the key staff members, and specify their main roles and responsibilities. Support your selections.

Explain the pathophysiology behind the condition. What pharmacological agent(s) are commonly used to treat the disorder and how do the agent(s) alter the pathophysiology of the condition?

APA format, three references, at least 300 words

Review the following case study:

Chief Complaint:

A 23-year-old woman presents with complaints of muscle weakness in the face.

History:

The patient is a 23-year-old administrative assistant who complains of intermittent muscle weakness in her face that has been getting worse over the past 3 months. She also states that as she chews, her jaws feel tired. Swallowing has also become difficult. She reports episodes of double vision (diplopia), which seems to occur after reading for a few minutes in the late evening. With certain strenuous activities or after typing for long periods of time at work, she reports problems with bilateral arm weakness.

Physical Examination:

Notable ptosis (drooping) of the eyelids after repeated blinking exercises. When asked to smile, she appears to be snarling. Reflexes and sensation are normal in both upper and lower extremities. There is considerable weakness of the arms noted bilaterally after exercise.

Case Questions:

  1. Is the patient’s condition neurological, musculoskeletal, or both? Explain why and support your thoughts with evidence-based literature. What would be a possible neurologic or musculoskeletal condition causing the symptoms?
  2. Explain the pathophysiology behind the condition.
  3. What pharmacological agent(s) are commonly used to treat the disorder and how do the agent(s) alter the pathophysiology of the condition?
  4. What would be your educational plan for the patie
