In Is American Psychological Research Generalizable to Other Cultures, two psychologist, Gerald Haeffel and Jeffery Arnett discuss their reason for supporting their beliefs on the topic of American psychological research generalization to other cultures. This is an important topic within psychology because the decision on what to do will affect how psychologist are allowed to do studies and it could also possible make it harder to construct research because the participant will be harder to find. This will be harder because right now most psychological research is done at colleges and university and that will not be able to happen if they need to find people and participants from all over the world. Summary: In this reading they are discussing
If the participants realized that they are being observed it could lead to anxiety. Even though, there is not informed consent given, researcher could give the participants debriefing after the experiment to avoid participants’ acts differently if they know they are being observe because this experiment need to be in a realistic setting. With debriefing, researcher could explain to participants about their experiment and whether they have any questions regarding the experiment. Researcher then could ask consent from the participants because all experiments participants must be debriefed and provide consent that their information can be used as data for
Sociologists have characterized the social norms as behaviors that the general public anticipates from its habits. In this way, when individuals show these social norms in the public, the general public observes them with fulfillment and acknowledgment. Thusly, when the social norms are violated or befuddled, individuals respond unusually or become irritated. For the social norm infringement assignment, I had numerous thoughts but my craving was to violate a norm that will make me act in the most easygoing way. So I have chosen the social norm of entering in the house/homes of people groups without knocking or getting their authorization.
Suspend Judgement. To suspend judgment is refraining from drawing one’s own conclusions and judging the unnecessary. Society easily judges the person’s clothes, beauty, tone and attitude, nevertheless, many tend to judge one’s place in society focusing mainly on the materialistic side. However within the texts of the Sunflower, The Cage, Harrison and Boy in the Striped Pajamas, the reader can analyze their place in society and better understand their status’. Despite the language of hope and forgiveness in the novels, the Sunflower and The Cage by Simon Wiesenthal and Ruth Minsky Sender that conveys a higher place in society, it is the language of innocence and ignorance in the texts “Harrison” and Boy in Striped Pajamas by Kurt Vonnegut and John Boyne inevitably conveys the movement of the characters to a lower place in society.
When it says “keep it original” This is to make anyone reading think about how this wouldn't make sense in their everyday life. These acts in my meme try to make the reader stop and think it through, or in some way make a connection to how they would feel about
Social norms are rules and regulations that society is supposed to live by and if one goes against them, they are sanctioned. For instance, going against these norms and expectations one might not be able to handle the sanction that follows and give them anxiety which would lead to them feeling like an outcast and not enough. These types of problems are showcased throughout the book whenever there is a confrontation with Emma Lou’s family and other members of the community; however they are put in a situation where they can either defend Emma Lou or discriminate against her too and accept all the criticism and that is what they choose to do because they too, don't want to be outcasted. During Thurman’s life, he never fit in properly in his community, he was treated as a wallflower, never interacting with anyone because of his fear of rejection. One cannot blame him for not ever desiring to have friends because nobody in his community had anything judicious to say, Thurman thought it was because he wasn’t “black enough” (Ganter).
Genetic analysis should be used freely in society, but only to help those who actually need it. The movie advocates the rules of your genetic makeup which leads to certain opportunities being presented to certain people with higher pedigrees than other. If a person's genetic makeup is sub-par you are unable to obtain your goals in life. While this is not true in the real world it could become a possibility in the future. The movie gives evidence of how your genetic makeup could affect who you love, what jobs you get, and expose you to certain discriminations in your life.
Virginia Hefffernan wishes to make the public aware of the damaging effects of constants use of headphones and how it is negatively effecting the young generations hearing drastically in her New York Times article, “The Argument Against Headphones.” The author realizes the vast population who wear headphones are unaware of its damaging effects both physically and on the social aspect. Heffernan hopes that with the information provided in this article, people will limit their use of headphones in the future. Who Heffernan is addressing in the article can be confusing at first. Of course she is addressing headphone users, but one may think the author is address the teenagers who most primarily use them. Though while Heffernan extensively discusses teenager’s use of
This is present in the communities and society in Ender's Game because as the society debates on the promoted discussion, many people thought the process will change without knowing it. In the book, Card wanted to show readers what would happen to a person who knew about the troubles happening in their world. For instance, " Certain military people who corresponded with her dropped hint about things that without meaning to..." (Card 231). This change in thought process is not only present in those who work for the military but also, to citizens. Card wanted to show that change can also take place in common citizens thought the process and speaking different opinions then they would have before learning anything about the trouble their world is in.
The public are banned from owning or reading books, there are many reasons for why people are so averse towards books and submit to the government. Entertainment such as, tv and radio play a big part in why most people do not independently think for themselves.The bigger reason is the sensitivities towards the “offensive” opinions written in these books that makes people submit to the goverments rules. This makes one either obey the authority and seeing what can happen to the world if they chose to let it stay the same or disobeying authority for change. Very much alike the recent occurrences where some college students have been rejecting the books they were given and are requesting new books and passages that are not offensive for the end result of softening and changing dated learning. On the other hand, there are new rules that are trying to make penitentiary’s “safer”, though adding specific approved “respectable” books for the prisoners to read and taking away their personal input on information.
This was portrayed in the documentary by one of the police officers who said you might not achieve a good or desired result sometimes but a good result might just be that you have successfully disrupted the situation. Like in most of the cases the girls went back home. Their parents were not persecuted but they became aware that they are being watched by the authorities. Social worker is a relationship-based profession nevertheless it is their moral duty to challenge injustice in the society. I learnt in today’s session that cultural diversity can create ethical dilemmas for social works and in cases there would be no direct answers.
I think that in a group setting the ethical issue that social workers should be aware of is breach of confidentiality. Some people do not like to attend group meeting solely primary because of this ethical issue. Also most people that do attend group meeting may not be completely honest because they are fearful of breach of confidentially. Whenever a client agrees to see a therapist, generally they already know that they have confidentially. So there is a big difference between confidentiality in a group setting vs. individual counseling.
