Affirmative Therapy offers a positive angle on how to work through one’s issues of sexuality (Laureate Education, 2012i). In addition to the therapy, it is also important for Dr. Patterson to have an understanding and self-reflection of her own biases and stereotypes towards the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, the client Tracy is at a stage in her life where she is questioning her sexual orientation. It appears that she already knows the answer but is struggling with the consequences of acting on her potential decision. There is a discrepancy and denial between their true selves about Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual (LGB) individuals who hide their sexual identity (Pachankis, 2004). Dr. Patterson does a great job in understanding her clients’ issues and
However, if someone comes that has a different idea about the training of their child we should listen and to their perspective? There may be no easy solution, but we can start by building a good trusting relationship and using good communication skills. In the Gonzalez-Mena text, she explains a process called RERUN to help work out diversity issues. The acronym stands for reflect, explain, reason, understand, and negotiate. (2008)
She would avoid angering her fellow officers, the victim, or putting the victim in danger by arresting Liz, which could lead to retaliation against Kate. 2. Case Study 2 a. The ethical dilemma for Jane deciding between upholding her confidential relationship with her client and to take no action, or to report Linda and her son’s use of peyote to the proper authorities. b.
This happens to everyone, so I do not think of her as an exception to the rule. In Alex Rees’ article he critiques Caitlyn’s Q&A where her ideas might be she might be presenting the wrong narrative. Similarly, to the author, I think the quote from Caitlyn where she stressed being ‘authentic’ and ‘play[ing] a role’ is a bit insensitive. What I understand of the issue is that being transgender is not something that they can just turn off. The article, Caitlyn Jenner Tells TIME Magazine That “If You Look Like a Man in a Dress, It Makes People Uncomfortable,” makes the assumption that “[Caitlyn] wishes the community could all agree to a little homogeny and just, you know, do something with their hair, a little lipstick never hurt no-one etc.
I would focus on helping the couple find many different options they felt comfortable with both from a medical and financial point of view. In addition, I would also suggest the couple seeks counseling, self-help groups, that focus on infertility issues. Since research shows “That infertility places women at risk for depression, anxiety, social stress, substance abuse, isolation, and marital
“Race is an important variable that affect people’s lives” (Sue, 2013 P.170). If counselors were color blind they will not be successful at helping people. It is the counselor’s responsibility to understand and accept people from different races. This also plays a part in gender equality. It is not ok for a male counselor to treat a women client as second to a him or look
Entering adulthood it is important to learn how to express one’s views effectively. The First Amendment protects our right to express our beliefs, however, our right to speak should not inhibit others right to their own voices. Lucia Valdivia, a professor at Reed College, believes the key is to be open to others opinions, not necessarily having to respect them or agree with them. At colleges such as Emory University, hate speech codes are being enacted to outline prohibited behavior. Banned behavior includes conduct directed at any person or, group of people because of their race, color, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, disability, or veteran 's status and that has the purpose of creating an offensive, demeaning, intimidating, or hostile environment (Uelmen).
Conflict of personalities with your assigned mentor or preceptor If there is a conflict of personalities with my preceptor, I will have to bring this to the attention of the nurse manager. According to Sliter, Withrow & Jex (2015) personality might predispose some individuals to being hypersensitive to stressors and perception. Also personality might impact individuals’ perceptions of the work environment (p.3). Reassignment to a new preceptor may be necessary to make the learning process
A therapist needs to be open-mined in counseling families in which are from a different background, culture, or religion because biases can easily crop up. We tend to naturally judge others who are not similar to ourselves and as a counselor this can hinder the effectiveness and counseling process. Being aware of these biases in family therapy can create an atmosphere for effective therapy to happen. Beutler, Crago, and Arizmendi (1986) recently noted that “many authors are urging therapists both to attend to their own religious and attitudinal systems and to be aware of the potential value of those of their clients (p.
This should be enforced prior to other special trainings because adolescent have their own contextual personal beliefs and foundations that determine their lifetime choices and for that, education can make the difference. It is proven worldwide that education is the only key to eradicate
Sofia karseik thinks that trigger warnings are both necessary and empowering "[like] when professors give [trigger] warnings, provide alternative readings and facilitate respectful conversations about deeply personal issues it 's easier for all students to participate. " This might have influenced her stance on trigger warnings as she thinks that it 's helpful for her. Richard J. McNally views as trigger warnings to be difficult. MecNally 's perspective, he sees trigger warnings as a disease or a major disorder that seems dangerous and unexpected, fearing the lives of humankind. He feels this way as an opportunity to resolve and create social justices for trigger
For sources to be credible the researcher should sort various sources to determine the fairest and clearest sources. It is a good practice to recognize shortcoming and biases from each source. Using evidence in the research is important to prevent generalization of the argument since one is able to point out an opposing point of view. It is important for any argument in the research to have critics since readers are able to know how different people view the same topic under discussion before making their
A complement to the affirmative action proposal is that scientists should be exposed to feminist viewpoints. Theoretically, I would not reject this notion, though I would ask that, for objectivity’s sake, anti-feminist viewpoints be taught as well. Yet again, however, I predict that this “exposure” policy, in practice, is not pragmatic. First, the diversity that I claim is essential for objectivity is composed of deeply entrenched views, views established and solidified by life experiences that forever change the way individuals think about particular issues (like sexual harassment). These viewpoints are not sufficiently inculcated in a Feminism 101 class, so I doubt that mere exposure to feminist viewpoints would engender our desired objectivity.
I believe that Amendment 2 should be ranked number one because to all the people I believe there’s a need to feel for safety, safety develops things such as organization, communication, and efficient collaboration. Then, Amendment 1 would be next because I think that the people 's voices matter, either in forms of the press or speech, more importantly the freedom to choose what you believe in should not be a limitation. Next, I wanted to make sure that all people are treated fairly and be educated on their rights, so that they have the possibilty to defend themselves against a choice made by the government that doesn 't feel right with them, this lets the government know their boundaries and understand that America is ruled by the power of the people. The people are the ones who have the power to choose the officials who represent them, forming an effective communicative system between the people and the
Bias and the Law relates to my goals as an educator because it will help me gain a better perspective on which people with disabilities and special education are viewed in society. It also helped me realize why people believe special education can be too costly, burdensome, and infective. It also taught me the biases towards people with disabilities still exists, and why it can be a civil rights issues. Cultural Attitudes relates to my goals as an educator because knowledge on a family cultural beliefs can help me work with students with disabilities and their families on an individualized education plan that best suits their needs. It also taught me that every culture views disabilities differently some view it positively others try to hide
